"Is Mandela Barnes? He's a defund the police Democrat. In defunding the police has to happen, watching the news, you wonder, has the rest of the country lost its mind? John fetterman's trying to get as many criminals out of prison as he can, far left John fetterman, dangerously liberal on crime. Is crime trumping? The economy now? I don't think it's trumping the economy because of what's happening. And I think Democrats had a very terrible week last week when you think about the inflation numbers and the previous weekend now the stock market being at the low point of 2022. So I think this is an economic election. But crime as an issue has risen and it's risen for very legitimate reasons, which is that crime is up in a lot of cities and people are concerned about it. So it is popular for Republicans to talk about because people are looking for solutions. And that's why the ads reflect it. Jen, I want to play you, though, an interesting ad that ties abortion rights and crime. It's an Arizona. Take a watch. She wouldn't force pregnancy on victims of rape and incest. Enforcing that law now makes cops responsible for going after doctors and nurses and medical teams who can be arrested and charged criminally. But it's a waste of resources. Precious resources that we need every day to keep our community safe. I'm not sure how this is either really effective or you're trying to get the voter to take two issues and time together to try too hard. I don't know, but an interesting response. Yeah, look, I think that Democrats, if the election is about who is the most extreme, as we saw, Kevin McCarthy touch on there with Marjorie Taylor Greene, I'll say her name, sitting over his left side, then they're going to win. If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose. And they know that. They also know that crime is a huge vulnerability for Democrats. I would say one of the biggest vulnerabilities. And if you look at Pennsylvania, for example, what's been interesting to me is it's always you follow the money and where people spending money. And in Pennsylvania, the Republicans have been spending millions of dollars on the air on crime ads against veteran because that's where they see his vulnerability. So yes, the economy is hanging over everything. But you do have to look at state by state factors and crime is a huge issue for the Pennsylvania race. Are you concerned about democratic big money? We did an analysis that showed basically because Mike Bloomberg and Tom steyer don't want to be president. You're missing about $50 million in big super PAC money. That's a big gap. It's true. What I will say, that's a good news for the long term is that where they're spending money is on state and local races. Something that Democrats and big money Democrats have not done for a long time. The disadvantage that one's super PACS, Republicans have, even though they're a lot more money there, is that the costs are higher. And there's only limited ad space available. And by law, campaigns get preference over super PACS for ad time. You want to restore it real quick. Look, I think with respect to money, in Democrats have the advantage, not Republicans, and it's because of the small dollar donors. And it's for the reasons that Jen just outlined. And so, you know, this kind of hysteria that we've seen in the press that last couple of weeks is really a democratic cry for these big donors to step up, but they're not at a disadvantage. Fair, we agree. How about that? All right. We will, that's a great way to end this panel segment. When we come back, I'm going to show you a new way to look at the immigration

Charlie Welcomes Trump-Endorsed Candidate for Arizona AG, Abe Hamadeh

"Are very worried about the overreach of the federal government and Arizona is a beachhead at all goes through Arizona. It is the front lines on every single level. We've been talking about how attorney generals better start acting soon. And enforcing the rule of law against these criminals, the cartels, these far left activists, the nominee for the Republican Party in the wonderful state of Arizona, Trump endorsed and endorsed by Rand Paul is Abraham Hamada, Abe. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Abe homine, but close enough to her. Oh, okay. Well, I did my best. So tell us about your campaign. Well, it's been a rocket ship since we received endorsement of president Trump in June on June 14th. But so far, you're exactly right, just listening to your segments on the show. This is quite unusual times that we're living in, you know, typically we've been fighting only the federal government, but right now we're fighting basically the radical left is infiltrated every aspect of our lives. I mean, now we have to fight big tech. I mean, if you remember back in February, when GoFundMe was going to use that money that was donated to the Canadian truckers, who stopped them from doing that. It was state a Jeep to stop GoFundMe from setting that money to radical leftist organizations. So this is unusual times where we have to fight back not just the federal government, but even big business and big tech who can become as tyrannical as government. So my opponent that I'm going up against Chris Mays, you know, she's going to be funded by George Soros. She was funded previously by Tom steyer. Michael Bloomberg is going to make a big push for gun control. So this is who we're going up against Charlie. So this is very worrisome, but luckily, Arizona has many good candidates. And I think we're going to be the leaders of the America first movement

"Debt. And that didn't. That didn't go well. That was my introduction to the glamorous business of private equity. And you didn't turn around and say, I want nothing to do with it. I had the time of my life. Really? It was so fun. How was sleeping in the CFO's basement? What was his house on the big 5? Yeah, it was. The whole entire town smelled like a pig farm. So there's a cliche about tech firms being started in dorm rooms. How does a private equity firm start in a dorm room? So I show up at Stanford and I'm in my first week of class and then similar as today, you have to take these core classes, your first year, which are just not that they're not that exciting. So the first class I sit down and there's this 25 year old who's never worth a day in his life. He's a PhD student. He's never taught before and he's kind of just reciting out of this strategy book and I just thought to myself, oh my God, what have I signed up for? So I had this idea that I was going to go try to buy a business and I had in your first three years as an analyst. You basically build a financial model. But I had the confidence of someone. I thought I was much more much better than I was. So I convinced an owner. I started cold calling companies in a sector that I had looked at previously. And I convinced this owner to sell me his business. And then I had to go raise the money. Most of which was debt and the little bit of equity that was needed, I financed with credit cards. So that was literally how I started, not your typical private equity founding story. How did that initial PE transaction work out? I did a total of three label deals with some add ons, lost money on one, made money or lost a little bit of money on a little bit of money on the second one. And then the third one, third one was a total home run, which actually just sold this year 2020 years later. So that one turned out well. 20 years, that's impressive. That's not the typical private equity holding period. Yeah, well, it was just me. I was the, it was just my so you could afford to be patient. It was awesome. It was a great one. What space was that? We had these companies that made these little labels that went on products like, for example, in Trader Joe's Trader Joe's private labels, things we made all those labels. It's a totally unsexy business. Right. But it was very consistent. And it's profitable. It was really profitable. And no one wakes up and says, you know, I'm going to be a hero because I'm going to save a half a set on my label. So it tends to kind of like just clip along like a bond. Right. So it turned out, it turned out well, but I mean, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. And so I made every mistake you can imagine. And it still worked out. When you launched in 2001, you started with 50, $55 million, something like that. And now it's up to 8 billion across 8 funds. And your most recent fund just closed about $2 billion, more or less. About 2.4. All right. So that's real money, 2.4. Obviously, you're doing something right. The track record has to be attractive. Is it the same investors rolling over or new and different investors? Who's the clientele for this? In the very early days, it was the number of individuals because no institution was going to react. Well, you have to have a certain track record being around for certain lengthy period, be able to check all of their due diligence boxes, and that takes money. And I check zero of those boxes. And that took me almost a year to figure out. I went to all these institutions and I never got past the first meeting anywhere. And then I found a number really two individuals who thank God, I still owe everything to these two. One was Tom steyer who ran for president. Oh, sure. He was one of the early ones and then Doug Martin from the Stevens family. And they were just the two best investors you could ever have and they were supportive. And most importantly

Biden Set to Declare Climate Emergency

"Hello everybody in line of what I was just talking to you about China versus Paris. The sign I revolution sorry that I outlook on life versus the Russian Revolution, excuse me, the French revolutions. The French revolutionaries, which is the Democratic Party. More and more power to government. More and more talk about equity, this is a very scary headline and I don't get scared much. Washington Post spoke spokesperson for the left. Biden could declare climate emergency as soon as this week. A major reason, if not the major reason. For the price of energy that is to fill up your car, et cetera, is because Joe Biden and the crackpots of the environmentalist movement, rich, white, bored, secular people. That is who comprise the environmentalist movement. It's funny that I'm saying white. Because it usually doesn't matter, but in this case, it's overwhelmingly. And they're overwhelmingly wealthy like Tom steyer and the others. And they're bored. They have no meaning in their lives so they must invent a meaning, saving the planet from global warming, you can't get more meaning than that.

"Apple podcasts I'm at Baxter And I'm Denise Pellegrini And you're listening to Bloomberg wealth with David Rubenstein part of our best of Bloomberg series And in this episode we're hearing from Katie hall she's founder and co chair of hall Capital Partners And here's David Rubenstein with hall on the economy the environment and building a career in investing The economy in the United States seems to be doing okay but there are some people that say there might be a recession a year from now or so because we're raising interest rates and in the end that will probably slow down the economy Are you worried about a recession I think that we are definitely in for a period of if not an actual recession at a minimum or re rating evaluations that is sort of related to increasing rates and slowing growth You know I think that the parallels to what we are seeing to 1999 It's different but there are some definite analogs is something that we're very mindful of And it's getting back to this idea about focusing on the long term and making sure that our portfolio is situated to participate in that and not being overly distracted by short term volatility but yet being mindful that there is definitely shifts that are happening Now you're also involved in climate change related issues And with your old friend Thomas fire you have built a alliance to kind of invest in Climate change related companies explain exactly what it is So when we created the company we really had this vision that there was both a huge need and opportunity to be able to marshal probably substantial amount of capital to orient it private capital to orient it around helping to accelerate climate solutions This is a critical decade that we actually have to make real progress What we're doing with galvanize is we are building a platform with quite deep expertise across science across technology across policy across communications across finance that will then support a number of different investment strategies from venture capital to public equities to everything in between All of these will be strategies that will be oriented around investing against again solutions and generating we believe market returns Is it a for profit venture Absolutely It's really we think that it's important that capital come into the system the capital invest against four climate solutions And it actually appropriate returns for that so that we actually can then attract more capital to help really create that proverbial flywheel effect So Tom steyer is known to many people as somebody who ran for president and who's also a big environmentalist And so you've known him for a very long time Tom and I were analysts at our very first job together at Morgan Stanley So we have known each other since 1979 And so today when people talk to you about the environment you basically say to them this is an important issue that they really need to deal with and your new organization will help deal with it Exactly But it's actually something I think that we're seeing the environment Excuse the pun has really changed We're seeing the capital markets are actually demanding that companies actually make progress on climate solution We're seeing investors look for that We're seeing actually customers of businesses demanding different kinds of activity We're seeing employees We're seeing people that want to work at companies that actually have a much more explicit mission about that they're trying to accomplish So we I think this is an environment that will lend itself to some real innovation and some real system change Your clients come to you and say look I want the best rate of return I can legally get I'm willing to have you look at ESG but that's not my main thing My main thing is rate of return or people say to your day ESG is very important to me and rate of return is secondary Yes But I actually think that's still the wrong framing of it That still implies that you actually have to expect to give up something to have a fully corporation of environmental social governance characteristics I just don't believe that I think that actually the best companies are those that are making the most effective use of their human capital their physical capital their financial capital and those companies that are thinking about them Actually we'll probably be the most successful companies and maybe the most interesting investments Let's talk about how you got into the business So when you were a little girl I assumed you didn't say I want to be a money manager No I did not Okay So where did you grow up So when I was younger my family lived in Minnesota and then we moved to ride New York when I started high school and I really considered rye my hometown So you must have done reasonably well in high school because you went to Princeton right And what did you study at Princeton I took a winding path there too So I started as an engineer And found it a little nonverbal for my taste back in the day So I switched to English and that was too many words So I ended up majoring in math track econ When you graduated from Princeton what did you do then You say I want to be in the financial world Well you know I was looking for a job I actually had done my I wrote my thesis Oh my goodness I on an explanatory pricey model of treasury bill futures I mean come on really So I was actually looking for something in finance And I actually looked at some jobs on futures exchange I ended up getting a job as an analyst at Morgan Stanley And you went to Stanford business But they went to Stanford Stanford was much more appealing to me I had a more much more flexible curriculum You just didn't have to approach things in just one way Cases for example or you could do It was a much more flexible approach to in terms of what you did And I took a very flexible approach to business school So did you say I want to start my own money management firm when you were at Princeton I mean at Stanford business school No no no I actually came back to Morgan Stanley and I work for.

"So what if you invaded a country that presented a zero threat to you zero? It's an amazing thing to think, isn't it? Ukraine presented no threat whatsoever to Russia. And they're having cities decimated. Part of those responsible, the western environmentalists, because he believed he could survive sanctions because the west started to so rely on his oil and gas. And once the United States under the despicable Biden regime decided to basically destroy the oil and gas industry in the United States and stop fracking and become reliant upon foreign oil, including Russian, he thought he had a green light economically to do what he did. The environmentalist movement is as destructive a movement as the west is seen in its history. They think they're wonderful human beings, part of the problem. They don't know how much damage they do. They only know that there's an existential threat of heat. Caused by carbon emissions, existential threat, so the amount of destruction you do always pales in comparison to an existential threat, right? The left the green left justifies its policies this way. It's irrelevant how much damage we do to people's life. It doesn't compare to mass death. That global warming will create. So that's how they justify they never have to answer, gee, look at how many people are now hurting because of the price of oil, which has much less to do with the Putin invasion than it does with the Biden invasion of the oil industry. The prices were already high before one Russian troop entered Ukraine. So they justify their damage. By saying it doesn't compare to the damage that global warming will wreak upon humanity. That's it? So you never, it's a beautiful thing. You're never challengeable in their eyes. Oh, I understand how many people are out of work. And I understand that it's shattering the economy. I understand that there are blackouts and brownouts in big states like California. I understand that the price of electricity is sky high. I understand that the price of gas is sky high. I'm not of the middle class, 99% of environmentalist leaders are very, very wealthy. They don't give a damn about the middle or lower class. They give a damn about the existential threat to humanity. Tom steyer doesn't give a damn about you. He can't even identify with you. These spectacularly rich people, like Al Gore, they don't understand what you're going through. You pay more at the pump, they're thrilled because that means you will get an electric car. They're happy you're paying more. When you compare every aspect of destruction to the existential threat, the alleged existential threat. Of global warming caused, they say, by emission of carbon dioxide, then there was nothing to answer for. How could gas prices compare? To mass death. That's right. Like with the lockdowns. The damage that the lockdowns that didn't mean a damn thing to the left. The number of girls thinking of suicide and committing suicide, the amount of depression and drug use increased doesn't mean anything to the left. They prevented mass death, thanks to lockdowns..

We never know exactly what we're going to get. But you know, that is kind of what we wanted was for Jason's character, Derek, to be haunted by this and it worked out. Still haunts my dreams, still haunts my dreams to this day. But, you know, but the great thing for you guys is Biden wasn't even elected yet. So you got him even before he was president, which was awesome, right? Yeah, and honestly, at that point, he was polling really badly and we were in Iowa and we're like, we gotta do a prank with Joe Biden before he drops out. 'cause we thought he was gonna be gone. Wow. 'cause he didn't do well in Iowa, casting a wide net. I mean, we were trying to get everybody. So someone was gonna go on and get the nomination. So, you know, it happened to be him, but we also did a thing with Elizabeth Warren and with Tom steyer just in case he made it. So we were trying to get everyone. So how did this project self funded or financing? It was self funded. You know, we were we'd been talking to we talked to some places before the election. You know, before COVID, I should say, really. And we had some leads. And we went out and we started shooting at ourselves because we knew we had to shoot in Iowa, which was happening in January. And then when COVID happened, it was like poof, everything went away. No one was making anything. And let alone being like, yeah, we want to be responsible for two actors going out into the world and maybe contracting COVID and dying. You know, like, nobody was nobody was filming. Nobody was doing anything. So then when we decided to finish it, we just, we just put it together ourselves. And we shot the whole thing ourselves. And then we talked to the mightest guys afterwards and kind of showed him a rough cut of it. And they really liked it. Who did you hire a camera crew? Or was it just. Yeah. No, no, we had we had our good friends Peter Barr and Peter Richardson are to me and they put really long hours and they put a lot of work. Fearless committed guys who kind of had the bigger vision along with us and so, you know, for very little money and for very long hours, we're committed to the goal there. And it really was just the four of us. And then the editor Jonah Oscar and that's it, that was the team. Like Jason said we got Midas a rough cut, and then they decided to come on, help us with post. And you know, we're grateful for that because we're really proud of the way the movie ended up but yeah, it was a really small team and it's a stressful way to make a movie fun to yourself and then hope the pieces fall..

"Again, our schedule for the week. Chris Davis going to join us here in just a couple of minutes to talk about his British cup horses and more. Vick stauffer is going to join me on tomorrow show. A little bit of a horse player Thursday on Wednesday. We'll talk a lot about the BCP C tournament stuff with Vic, but also just kind of his general approaches to breeders cup and kind of this event, the replays work that goes into it and all that. So I think you really enjoy that conversation with Vick coming up on Wednesday's show. Jessica is going to join me on Thursday. We will discuss the two year old races a little bit more of a handicapping type show Thursday and get her opinions on some of the two year old races. And then Friday, the jury guys will be in here. We'll talk about the Saturday races. Do want to before we get to Chris Davis, talk about the awful tragedy that happened in Kentucky with the passing of Miguel meina, who was tragically killed in the car accident situation on Sunday Night Miguel was just 34 years old. This reporting coming from the a politic report said he was struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian on interstate 64. I haven't seen any further explanation of the events surrounding it makes you think that maybe he was, you know, had a flat tire, or was on the side of the road for an accident or something. Again, you know, I don't want to be conjecturing. Is that a word? But that one would think that would maybe be the case. 64 is, of course, the freeway that's between Louisville and Lexington. I mean, a lot of the Kentucky horsemen drive it on a daily basis. When Keenan's going on or when church is going on, so I'm living Lexington and so it's a massively traveled road, but certainly a massively horse racing traveled road. The police said that the death was an accident and Miguel a native of Peru came to the United States when he was 17 and has been a successful writer pretty much since he began. We had Miguel on the show would have been the summer of 2020. So just a little over a year ago and talked to him about his career. And that was shortly after he'd written Tom detach to a win in the Stephen foster stakes. You remember Joel Rosario, who was the regular writer, couldn't ride that day and so may not rode and put on a great performance. I think that was certainly a shining moment his career two time grade one winner Miguel maina was one of the test stakes and also the Stephen foster back when that was a grade one before. With pool play. Back in 2011, 37 graded stakes in all his most recent one, the dick memorial at Delaware park aboard with dalia who is an ale style horse alfalfa of course trained at Tom steyer, I'll stall talked about Miguel in some of the news articles that came out the other day, just talking about what a great guy he was, you know, I had when I had interviewed him, you know, I went through Jose Santos junior who was his agent. And Jose told me he said, you're going to love Miguel he's a really great guy and he was. Like I said, if you want to go back and listen to that interview it's out there in our expansive network of shows. But just so sad. I mean, it's just, you know, we're reminded on a pretty regular basis that life is quite fleeting, our time here is not guaranteed it is unpredictable. There is tragedy. There is danger there is all that kind of stuff, but you know, there's beauty and there's all these other things that make life worth living. But when things like this happen, you obviously get frustrated and questioned that sometimes at least I do. Just how young man with a wife and kids and seemingly doing everything kind of right. You know, gets taken away. And his wife and kids have to go on the rest of their lives without their husband and father, which is so, so sad. You know, we had that in our community here in Oregon with Eduardo Gutierrez Sosa back in the spring and you know, obviously this was not a riding accident, but an accident nonetheless. Just terribly sad. Thinking, you know, Luke kind of was looking through a lot of Miguel's achievements. I forgot he was on Dennis's moment with the famous 19 length maiden win. Back at Ellis park, but obviously wrote a lot of really, really nice horses over the year international star was one that was kind of a Derby trail horse for him. Kerry street was a very, very nice nice type back in the mid 2010s. I'm captured he rode to a couple of graded stakes wins, pool play, I mentioned champagne dioro was his test stakes winner and of course Tom steyer was the I believe the regular morning rider for Tom's day top, but Jose did post a GoFundMe page if you're wanting to support Miguel's family a little bit in this tough time. My Jose Santos. Twitter, let me give that out. Look it up here. It's just at Joe Santos 33. I'm sure if you look up Jose Santos junior, you'll be able to find it and again, obviously, his family is going to be going through a lot and I'm sure, you know, he was certainly a primary income creator for them, and so it's just, you know, it's bad on a hundred levels and it's just very, very sad. You know, look, I went and looked up his Instagram and it's just a lot of pictures of him and his daughters. You know, they're young and he's obviously a very proud dad. It's just brutal. There was just a really, really brutal thing to hear about and sending good thoughts to his family and of course everyone over in Kentucky, obviously when you're a part of the racing world where we're a part of a big, you know, community, but there's also these little small communities at each jurisdiction and the modern technology of AWS and simulcasting and everything we get to, you know, we get to watch these riders and trainers and stuff from afar, but when you're there doing the daily work, you know, you think you come in across past with these folks a lot more and obviously want to send wishes to the entire Kentucky racing community along with New Orleans where Miguel often wintered down at the fairgrounds. Rest in peace Miguel maina, and we will think and remember you fondly forever. We will take a quick timeout when we come back Chris Davis is going to join us.

I think the story will be that he just squeaks by If you know if it's like 58 against 59 against which is, you know the polls that I've seen lately? I think you know the story won't be that much interesting at all. It'll just be You know, a Democratic state voted to preserve a democratic governor. I mean, the real questions I have is, you know is what I said about the turnout. That's something I'm watching. I'm also watching who will become your bare, uh, to run against Mr Newsome in June. You know, there's a June election just around the corner. And you know if he survives and survive strong, that election is gonna be a lot less interesting. So you know, I think that there's a lot of themes yet to be told here. The key thing, of course, is that everybody listening should vote. Voting is the most important right or one of the most important rights that we have, and everybody should exercise it. The California Democratic Party was adamant that they wanted to keep all big name California Democrats off the ballot in question number two. Last time around that didn't work out.

I'm going to put my name on on question Number two, and it gave Democrats who were voting a place to go in on the second part of the ballot. Democrats now have no place to go except for voting for one of the Republicans are an unknown Democrat who decided to to run on question number two. If you look at where the electorate is right now, and how split the Republican vote is in question to. It's clear to me that if a big name Democrat had run, they would probably finish first. For someone like Antonio Villaraigosa That may have been his last shot of being governor in the state of California. And it may also have persuaded Democrats who don't like Newsome, but don't want to Republican to be governor. Vote Yes, on the recall, as opposed to staying at home or voting. No. Do you think it was a mistake not to put a Democrat on the ballot for question number two? Or is it working out the way they intended by by preserving Newsom in question one. Sure so great question, and it raises a whole lot of, you know, Recall backstory. First of all, we do know that the Democratic Party was very disciplined and keeping people off the ballot. We do know from what's been reported publicly that Mr Year ago, so I was considering a run, and he was harshly criticized by his business partners by former staff like anybody that the administration could get to criticize themselves. You've got to take your hat off to the Newsome administration and the Democratic Party for executing very well to keep party unity alive. We do know also that the Republican Party was working very hard to recruit. A wide array of Republicans and also Democrats. How do I know that? They called me? They asked me to run and I said, No, thank you. You know, my kids are my kids very young, and I'm just frankly, not interested. The The answer you know is it's very hard to know how the voters would react it like you know, Tom Steyer was on the ballot or Vera go. So I think there would be enough people who would feel that they had another opportunity or another chance or Somebody who would be a backup plan and that could have affected their vote on the first question. I believe the exit polls show that in the gray Davis recall, and so just from a historical perspective, that's probably something that is that is accurate. Like it's amazing how the story of the recall has changed every week. Right When you look back at you know when it started. It was like, Wow, this thing isn't gonna qualify and it was like, Wow, this is going to qualify and My gosh, There's a poll that shows that he's in trouble. And then the very next week, it was like, Yeah, now, Covid is over. So he's going to be just fine right because everybody's coming back out, and life is emerging in California back Then it was like the next week. Oh, my gosh. Delta as a thing, right, And it has been complete and utter whiplash, But you know, there's a saying, I think in the military that goes something like, you know, amateurs talk strategy. And professionals talk logistics. And I hope I didn't come across too much of an insider. When I talk about the logistics of the thing. I think the strategy is all you know, it's all done. It's all baked. It is what it is. The thing that matters now is the logistics. Logistics are turnout in election and what I'm seeing from the turnout and what I'm seeing anecdotally and and with the evidence of that Republicans are largely postponing their vote that is going to affect them. There's a there's a number of people who are waiting. Traffic. Whatever. You're not gonna end up voting on Election Day, um Postponed votes. You know, it always ends up saving the total from the turnout that I'm seeing So far. It looks like Mr Newsome has a very good shot being retained as governor.

"This country's actually taking it to the Biden administration on a whole host of issues. Is Arizona attorney General Mark Barnevik. Who I haven't had on the show. How are you, sir? Very good. Mark. How you doing? I'm fine. I just You're a Montenegrin. I am. Yes. Yes, my brood bitches, you know, or one of the old Montenegrin family, Small country Less than a million people. Everyone seems to know everybody. I'm very proud of my heritage. Well, I'm just saying, if you get elected to the Senate, which is I know where you want to go. Then you can do it. The Liberals say you're the first Montenegran. You know, It's funny because some of the folks in the community have mentioned that so it's uh, It's not to believe there's too much, but it's funny because When I was there like a couple summers ago, I met with the president because I'm like now the leading Montenegrin in the United States. I will be the Orthodox Montenegro in in the U. S. Senate, the only Orthodox Montenegro in the US Senate's like how's that going for me? Where then I expect those little damage. It's devote free because they're into the first, aren't they? I'm just saying there should be. I mean, my first language was Serbo creation. You know an area Guess. Very welcome That sense, right? Yeah. That'll take you far, though. I'm not sure. Well, you know, the left is not intellectually honest. Do you know that better than anyone? And, uh, yeah, they will. People like me. They can't stand. There's a reason why Tom Steyer. The left has lined up against me my entire career cause I was late to politics. I was most prosecutor most of my career. And they can't stand guys like me. They're first generation Americans believe in constitutional conservatism that understand that individual liberty and freedom is what made this country great and not is the inheritance. We have to pass under our generations. So they're doing everything they candidates try to destroy guys like me. Well, let's get into this. Um you've brought a number of cases challenging some of the unconstitutional or illegal or inappropriate steps to the Biden administration. Give us some example. Mark. We have three active lawsuits right now related to the border. You know where we sued by an administration over the interim guidance where they literally we're not following, you know, section aided US code and they literally if not deported. 1.2 million people Deportation orders. Tax is also involved. In a similar lawsuit. We sued the by an administration over its illegal failure to build the wall over its remain in Mexico policy, and we did a Korean lawsuit basically saying that as a result of their policies, this open border policies, it's not only impact your national security, but it's quite frankly in a violation of the Environmental Protection Act, which the left uses all the time. Do you know force federal bureaucrats to do something We're saying, you've got to continue to build the wall and you've got to continue to enforce federal law because you're not. That's what led to this economic impact of all these millions of people crossing the border illegally. But you know, I've got a lawsuit against Yellen. We've got a lawsuit that basically says the Covid relief bill besides the fact that it's a bunch of big government bloat. And you know, full of chronic capitalism. It also private states from cutting taxes. And so we have a lawsuit or that we believe that clearly violate its an attempt by the by administration accommodate in the states and violates traditional notions of federalism. Just about You've also when it's come to this audit in Arizona and so forth, Maricopa County said. We're not responding to subpoenas. And what did you say? Mark? I have been consistent with day one. There is no other person this country that did more for election in Turkey last. Why should I did, and I've literally talked to President Trump about this. Our office went six for six and 2020 when the left tried to mail out ballots, everyone whether they want it or not. I went to court and I stopped it when they tried to extend the curing period. On balance. They were successful in Pennsylvania, but not in Arizona because I took that case to the federal courts and literally. The most important case in a decade of the U. S. Supreme Court is called Berna. Vich v. D. N. C. This last term that I personally argued it's named Berkovitz because no other elected official here stepped up. I stepped in. I intervened to defend Arizona's common sense, election integrity measures, and as a result of that, you see states like Florida and Georgia, other states now enacting commonsense election integrity measures. Quite frankly, are not only consistent with the constitution but instill confidence in voters as to the audit. Specifically, I have said all along. I've actually filed paperwork that the state Senate has a right to do the on it. A court actually here, agreed with us, and we have said to the county that if they do not turn over subpoenaed information that we will withhold or will tell the treasure to withhold their share of state revenue, which is literally hundreds of millions of dollars. So you know, I'm not doing the audit. I believe very proud strongly in the separation of powers of the constitutional conservative. The Senate has a right to do the audit. How they do the audit is their business. I've said from Day one. We await the results and, you know, as a prosecutor, I learned a long time ago. Wait till you get all the facts and evidence before you comment or move forward, and that's what I'm doing. So I've supported the Senate's right to conduct the audience. Period and we are waiting for the results. Now, this guy Mark Kelly is running for re election. Quite frankly, is like in the witness protection program. I don't even know what his voice sounds like. And I've been following this for a long time. He's been going along with the hardcore left. Virtually in every vote. He's not like, you know, they say, Cinnamon mansion. I don't even trust them. But he's never counted among them as a possible no vote on anything so He's decided to throw in with with the Schumer's of the world and marquees and all the rest. Now he's up for election and so in the Republican primary, Republicans are duking it out. And you're one of the ones running in the Republican primaries. So tell the people of the country in in Arizona. Why you're the guy. It's quite simply this mark. We need people that have been tested that are principled that basically can articulate and defend Arizona values. And I know when people first started talking about me running for the Senate, I was very humble. The thought of a kid like me First generation American sitting in the desk of Barry Goldwater, making these monumental decisions was almost overwhelming. And I thought to myself Wait a minute. This is America and this whole country is founded on opportunity and the Constitution and what is happening in Washington, D C now is eroding traditional notions of federalism and people like Mark Kelly, who vote with humor 98% of the time. Basically are dramatically expanding the size and scope of the federal government. Mark Kelly is you know one of the signatures of the S one co sponsors that want to nationalize our election and put more control in D. C. He's on board with the 3.5.

"From a strategy standpoint from a democratic standpoint distill it down and just vote no and mail it in its lot cleaner and is i think going to be successful and it avoids creating that permission structure for democrats say. Well i guess. I can vote. Yes because there's this other backup it's good for newsom. I'm not sure it's good for democrats aggregate probability of keeping the seat. If you're tom steyer looking at the polls if you weeks ago you have to wondering could i have become governor of california. Put some money into the race and like throw tomatoes at newsom from the outside and then like it's not like larry elder is that high in the polls right just that like he's at twenty percent and everyone else's at like two in like you probably win if it gets that far but i'm surprised that like some enterprising democrat didn't take an opportunity. I agree with you. That newsom strategy is high risk. It's also high reward because this exact issue. I was talking about voters feeling like even if they're voting against the recall they're not particularly enthusiastic about newsom mean if there was a viable democrat on that ballot. There's a chunk of voters who would vote for the recall so they could get a different democrat in place so it is a high risk strategy comes with a high reward that he probably will beat the recall and that he'll keep the governorship but the messaging is. It's very odd to to hear a public officials. Say don't vote on fifty percent of your ballot and that's what we're having in this situation. It's a strategy. That's good for newsom. I don't know if it's good for california. If this recall goes the other way and voters have listened to that advice then the next governor will be selected by a very small segment of the electorate. And that's not good for democracy. I will tell you another big potential benefit of this is that for those who've been falling california politics you've got kevin faulkner on the ballot. He's a republican from san diego from that moderate wing of other republicans. That come out of san diego. You've got john cox was the nominee last time for governor. You've got kevin kiley. Who's up and coming younger republican assemblyman. These candidates are going to end up potentially in single digits in a recall being beaten by larry elder with very very low numbers. It basically is a wrecking ball to the republican candidates for governor and twenty two and it's essentially like newson comes out of this with a double whammy. He can beat the recall. Leave the republican field in shambles. And i also think there's a potentially a message nationally around this because nationally. I think the take could be a california governor. One post kovic by embracing the kobe restrictions by embracing masking and vaccines and actually running into the storm. Rather than trying to run away from it he's done a really interesting messaging. Here hold on. Hold on from what i understand. Looking at california politics is that this recall election has scared gavin newsom into tapping down on some of the restrictions that he had previously been really enthusiastic about. He's been campaigning on. That larry elder's gonna make it unsafe to go schools. Because he's going to get rid of the vaccine mandates. He's going to get rid of masking he's gonna like they've been actually embracing the covered restrictions. At least they have in the last six weeks or so. Is that a change because it seemed to me that previous to that there had been a lot of hesitation to re implement restrictions that california had previously used during surges virus..

He went from being mayor of a small town to secretary of transportation. So yeah biggest. Better off except for biden. Yeah you might be even better off than by it. I mean. I don't know i guess in terms of career it doesn't get any higher than president but from like vice president to president is less of a leap than mayor of south. Bend to who. He is today in the party. Probably yeah i mean. He's getting experience running a washington position in which he didn't have four years ago or two years ago. Is it fair to say that. Mike bloomberg and people to judge had the largest gains and losses in the twenty twenty primary. I do not think bloomberg had the biggest loss. Okay then we'll have to. We'll have to gun next up. Is tom steyer. Push push. Okay all right. That's legitimate and i feel. He's kind of in the middle. I don't see him way or another drug. Yeah i would push also. We'll take it. That's up patrick. He hardly even ran. I don't know if it's even fair to test him here. But does anyone have a feeling either way. I would include them. I feel like he has a lot of promising things on paper and none of that kind of Came to be so maybe worse off. But i don't know. I hear that because at a certain point it started feeling like getting in the race was almost like a joke and that people started being annoyed with the more and more people who got into the race. Yeah it'll be a push. Because i think people won't even remember that iran you all right next up is michael. Beck's in case people don't remember he's a senator from colorado. I think that are off. You know. I think he probably went from one in ten thousand people knowing who he was two one in nine thousand. So that's an improvement. I would push on him same reason. I just don't think people will remember. He ran. I agree with mike. I think the fact that people know who he is now is helpful in even after twenty it was that it was like biden versus trump. I think i saw bennett looked at as someone who could potentially run again. According to you gov forty three percent of people have heard of michael bennett. Regatta win i would never get that high better off much. Maybe michael bennett's overall winner here. The next one's a good one every being.

Hey, let me go to Charles Finch and we'll talk about something of substance. Although that's good. It's history. American history in Quiz form 6 33, which on the radio and Professor Finch joins us on the airwaves Now? Hi, Charlie. How are you? Happy Fourth of July. Happy Fourth guys and Debbie. You know, Joe, I want to make three points, but 1st 3rd boy, third verse of this land is your land is actually an endorsement of communism. But Woody Guthrie wrote it. When the Soviets were our allies in World War two sweet gets a path. Speaking of which 0.1 you asked where this started the woke stuff started with a group in the sixty's called the Modern Language Association, which is the powerful group of all academics in America all levels. That's when they began teaching, deconstructed on some critical race theory and all this stuff if you want to get any kind of an advancement as a teacher at any level. You have to go to their convention and get a job to the L. A. They are as left as mouse. A dunk point to your upcoming guests. David Bossie, as Arthur Idella will tell us, I hope was a principal in the Citizens United case in which the Supreme Court ruled That all political money, including dark money is protected speech under the First Amendment. Everyone thought to write like, Go. Wait. Mr Edelson was going to use that. You know who used it? Joe George Soros, my old friend Tom Steyer. It went to the Buckley school along with Cy Vance. Me and both of Donald Trump's Sons. Size and Square is loyalty. I ask you and my grandfather Henry founded that school not to get emotional, artistic. Right. But there's been no investigation of Storro Styron, the gang and how they influence the election from No. One, especially Mitch McConnell. Finally, Joe on a lighter note. Who was the greatest as you know, interpreter of the modern pop song in the sixties and seventies. Sammy Davis Jr. I think, having listened to trilogy through you that the old man may have borrowed a few phrasings from Sammy. What do you think? Good observation, everybody. I'm not sure happy for Charles. Thank you very much. Very interesting. I'm not. I'm not quite sure. You know, but again, Charlie always has something yet If you listen to his whole George Soros thing, why and how and how does it How does that way Extremely. What's the end game? We talked about it yesterday. I think the end game is, of course, money. It all comes down to money. That's all they care about. These globalists could care less where they get it from. And that's why they deal with China. That's why Jack Dorsey from Twitter and Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook and everybody else, they all they are afraid of China's such a big market. That's why the the CEO of Nike says. Uh, Nike is a Chinese company. They they actually said those words. They're afraid it all comes down to money they would sell out in my opinion, their own family members for money. That's what these globalists will do. You know, And I know Barack Obama Big globalist only wanted all for 11. For all your theory Sounds great. But in my opinion is this And then we'll move on now do the news. If I may, please, if I may, because if you I always say I don't I love the ethnicity of America. The mosaic of this country is the strength of this country. It's the foundation of this country. And I understand when the Italian Americans came here and what they are Jewish brothers and sisters had to go through to get you are Latino and the African American. Everybody here If you're true to your heritage, and you have those little street fairs if it's a Puerto Rican day or something like that, it strengthens the country. You believe in where you're from. But but and this is a big, but these days you got to remember where you are. It's the United States of America. And when my family came here from Italy, they came here to America because they loved America. They loved everything. America stands for its right. Everybody wants to still come to America. But now in the this globalist, uh, take over, you know, we we called the regressive socialist agenda and has nothing to do with one for all all for one. It's just to make those people even richer than they are. In my opinion. It's all money. It all goes to money and they'll take away our our religion.

"tom steyer" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"And that's what they're talking about, is AH system that is rigged against them, not just in the stock market. But in the employment market in every part of their lives. And that's something that you saw. You know, when I was running for president, I was calling for a wealth tax. Was saying, there's something here that is so wrong. You know, I tweeted this morning Ash tag tax me more. We need. There's something wrong and the fact that these people are furious and using new technology to do something about it to make a point. No. Look, this is Basically, it's not just economy wide. It's countrywide of people who are upset, disappointed, disaffected and angry. So you agree, then with Anthony Scaramucci and others who have described this as a French revolution on finance, You know a real democratization effort, if you will. Look, I think that that is the Motivation behind it. And I think that it's appropriate also to point out that this is a system that has worked for insiders forever. You know the old saying where the customers yachts But whether this is reaches the point about French revolution it is. I think it is animated by some of the same feelings and anger, but You know, the real question is you're seeing the Biden administration trying to react to it. Try and get in front of it. Try and deal with racial injustice, economic injustice, environmental injustice, and that's what has to happen in our society. Yeah, and you and I can't take credit for the great French Revolution quotes so I won't take credit for that one. That was us. Anthony Scaramucci, but Tom Steyer, it has been such a pleasure to talk to you, founder of next Gen Climate Action Committee. Farrell on Capital Management, former candidate for the Democratic nomination for president. Hope to.

California moves up primary, wants bigger impact 2020 vote

"So California wanted to be more relevant in the democratic nominating committee process and they've moved their primary up right so now we're gonna be voting on Tuesday on super Tuesday for the first time instead of in June what sort of impact is gonna have on the racetrack let's start with you well I think a lot of people are just thrilled to California's if relevant this year more so than if we had our primary in June which is where used to be you know that the nomination is still up for grabs in California has four hundred fifteen delegates up for grabs in particular that's that's gonna have a big impact the problem with California's it's so expensive you know to campaign here and so we've seen the candidates come here raise money but not too many of them have really been here campaigning except for like very recently and so they're they're spending time in Texas and other places where there can they can be on television for less money no and I think another reason was moved up is perhaps to help California candidates like Kamala Harris and perhaps Eric Swalwell they dropped out and so you have to say that you know in in I think if Eskom Herskovitz help make California more relevant she would say no and there are a couple pulls out this week that show that Bernie Sanders certainly has the lead among likely democratic voters here in California it can anyone take that away from him or is it just has to win at this time I mean look after twenty sixteen we don't make predictions on an X. ray I think that it would be very surprising if anyone were to beat Bernie Sanders however as you said it was with Warren is in second and not change research KQED poll she certainly stands if those numbers are right to pick up some delegates which could help her momentum a lot of people who have gotten their vote by mail ballot sixteen million were sent out or holding on to them way later than they have in years past including if you look at people who analyze this like Paul Mitchell says that that includes people who are very consistent voters so it's not as if it's just like people about their ballots and maybe they're not gonna turn them and it does seem like they've been waiting to see these debates to seem about it to see South Carolina so I do think that Joe Biden you know what happens in South Carolina could really help him stay in this race I think if you're Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden you might hope that the other candidates are cold and it comes at a two or three way race after super Tuesday but there's still a lot up in the air at this point the big question too is can't other how many other candidates are gonna hit that fifteen percent threshold because in order to get any delegates in a congressional district or statewide you have to get fifteen percent so the more that Bernie Sanders gets the less of the pie there is for the other candidates to divide up so you could have a situation where Bernie Sanders if he reaches forty five fifty percent of the vote no one else reaches fifteen percent that would be a huge win for him but I mean everything because it is absolutely right in terms of how hard it is to campaign her expensive it is but let's be clear it's February you know Mar almost March third there months ago well but also like if if this is the primary was happening in June in California this nomination be locked up so we are relevant we do matter we just don't get the same attention they get in Iowa New Hampshire South Carolina because there's four forty million of it all the more relevant because were earlier absolutely and I think that you know you're seeing in terms of both the attention we're getting from the candidates but also just from the national media for once let's turn a little bit and talk about property can you tell me a little bit about what this will do and what's significant about research yes this is a measure that's kind of been talked about for a long time in San Francisco it would essentially penalize folks who own properties that keep about street level vacant storefronts are talking about commercial properties and this is really been a problem in neighborhoods including North Beach are are we are other commercial corridors it's interesting because this is one of those things that I think you know some property owners aren't too happy about the ideas you get taxed if you leave it vacant if you fill it you're okay you don't have that tax the money that would be raised would go to small businesses you know people against it say why are you making it even harder retails already suffering but I think what's interesting is you look at who's lined up on in support of it and the town that doesn't agree on much the mayor is on board the more progressive supervisors us poorer the chronicle endorsed it it's less controversial than I would have expected and is this Scott because of the flight that we're seeing with I think so and you know I just friends just anecdotally when I talk to people who have been in that place for many many many years harvest market on on Market Street for example they were there thirty years and the rent got doubled and that's storefront is still vacant it was over a year and a half ago and so what happens is you get homeless people you get blight it's better to send a looks bad this less inviting to people want to go shop on that blocker in that neighborhood and so you know I think that there's just a concern that it's it's are these languages being greedy waiting for a big chain store to command or a bank or something like that who can afford these top dollar rents and what's even in that that's the case let's make him pay something for you know for that sort of work it out it's a small business and enterprise yeah right right so we do have South Carolina coming up and so talking about South Carolina Joe Biden certainly has to win in this state from everything he said really do you think there's any chart for him if he does not win South Carolina can he move forward he really needs to do well I mean he has said very categorically I'm going to win South Carolina and you know he needs that moment it's a first of all he's been staking problems chips on South Carolina show the African American vote is going to be really a firewall for him and then going into super Tuesday that would give momentum to some of the other states like Alabama Tennessee Texas you know where they're more African American voters and I you know if he comes in second or just barely wins in South Carolina just be more consternation and anxiety among the democratic insiders like but I think maybe some pressure for him to get out but that's gonna it's gonna be a tough call but if he does really well it could sling shot him into super Tuesday that really well means winning it doesn't seem coming in one close by a double digit margin I think that that is the key here he has to not only win but win big and he has to really show that he has that support from the African American community and I think other communities as well because we know this year that communities of color women of color in particular are going to be key if Democrats really want to be a take on trump and beat him in November and has Joe Biden been able to solidify any of those groups with the when the women of color around him well I think if you look at the polls he's doing exceptionally well among African American voters but interestingly California billionaire Tom Steyer's actually cut into that margin he's been running a lot as we talk about triage he has really put his chips on South Carolina as well I'm I think that does raise questions and I think the splitting of the vote amongst the more centrist candidates is really making it hard for some voters to make that call do they go with Bloomberg with his deep pockets so they go with you know Joe Biden who they know it's certainly some younger African Americans in South Carolina really likes tire yeah I think there's a big generational divides Marie's this point you know a lot of older African Americans really like Joe Biden was younger ones are like more open to Bernie Sanders Tom's tire one of the younger candidates a few words before we go corona virus suddenly putting health care front center well I don't think it's gonna scare people from voting but it you know we see what's happening with the Dow and if the stock market tanks further in the economy begins to really have a hard time even that takes away one of the pillars of Donald trump's argument for being reelected and that's where it could have an impact we just don't know where is where it's going and where it's going to be come the fall Scott Schaefer and Marie's Lagos thank you so much for being

Strategist Steve Schmidt Discusses Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump

"Do you think that Bernie Sanders is the biggest threat to your president trump? Right now I do think so I would say that the biggest threat to president trump is president trump. What do you mean by that? Well if he's on his game as he was at the state of the Union there's a candidate in the country that can beat them if there is a second choice of than himself it would be Bernie Sanders Bernie. Sanders brings out outside game in a similar fashion. That president trump did in two thousand sixteen interesting moment there with Tim. Scott of South Carolina Senator Bernie Sanders coming off a big win in Nevada. And on Saturday we will come to what is only. Let's remember the second primary of the political season. Let's talk about the state of our politics with us. Now Steve Schmidt a veteran former Republican strategist us since left the Republican Party. But he's here with US tonight. That's all we care about. Let's take them one at a time. Let's start with the Republicans. Start WITH SENATOR. Scott's point the biggest risk to donald trump is donald trump because we just had shannon petty peace with with a straight face as a reporter. Say It's another one of these crises corona virus. That trump didn't start himself. Well Look Tim. Scott is correct. I mean the person that is always created the most powerful for Donald trump politically is is donald trump but since his acquittal by the Senate as he's purging the government of anybody he thinks is disloyal as he is taking his revenge is he is a visceral rating the rule of law in unprecedented fashion. Interfering in criminal cases the Department of Justice his poll numbers are going up and so he is consolidating power at an alarming rate in doing so liberally. Let's talk about the Democrats and as we do. I WanNa play the Clip Bernie. Sanders campaign manager. Came on with Chris Hayes earlier on this network tonight. We'll look at that one of the reasons that I love and fight for Bernie Sanders. There's integrity and honesty. You get with him and what that means is when you ask them a direct question he gives you a direct response comes from his heart from his soul. Tells you exactly what he's thinking right and that means that sometimes you may disagree with his perspective but you know he's he's shooting straight with. He's not playing a political game. So when you ask them about. Hey how about Cuba and the Castro? Oh well he's an authoritarian. He's engaged in human rights abuses however there were some good things that happened in Cuba. We should acknowledge those two. And that's an honest answer and then other people will play political games. And that's why for instance Chris. I think over the course of this campaign. We've benefited from the fact that his stray shooting his integrity. His honesty rises above other people's efforts to try to offer political barbs and try to throw cheap shots in the kitchen sink at him that were tonight and at a CNN town hall and the last hour people to judge just said in effect here. We are as a party. We're talking about Fidel Castro. Indeed and they are and you look at travesty of a debate if you're in the business of wanting to remove Donald Trump from office. The one thing that wasn't talked at all about in that debate was trump or trumpism and so the campaign managers talking about Bernie Sanders Integrity. Is he showing integrity by not releasing his medical records? Is he showing transparency and integrity by not talking about the Price Tag associated with student? Loan Forgiveness Free Pre pre K. daycare for everybody. And there's no price tags on any of this. It's a dishonest progressivism. That's NO DIFFERENT THAN DONALD. Trump's dishonesty talking about the Mexican paid for wall it's all fantasy and so when Bernie Sanders goes out there. He starts talking about well. Here's the good sides of Fidel Castro. I think it's important to understand that there might be a constituency for that in this country but it's a really small one and it's certainly not enough to get you into an electoral college majority to win the White House. And it certainly dooms your chances in Florida. How do you process the fact that tomorrow night? We're going to have seven people on stage. Two of them are billionaires. Two of them look at real double digit poll numbers knowing that money bought those poll numbers not some inner need to have them as our next president. How do we process that well? I think they're two different cases right so first off. Mike Bloomberg was the mayor of New York City for twelve years and by any objective standard. He was one of the most competent successful leaders of large government anywhere in the world over the last quarter century. He was a profoundly successful mayor. I think it's a mistake for Democrats to attack. Somebody like Mike. Bloomberg who grew up in a middle-class circumstance and is a self made man is one of the country's greatest philanthropists and I disagree with him on a number of different issues but if you are invested in progressive causes. It's hard for me to think of anybody who has done more to advance progressivism whether it's on gun issues whether it's on climate then has Mike Bloomberg so the notion that Mike Bloomberg is on that stage somehow illegitimately is not something that I really understand. Tom Steyer has been an activist in American politics. Now for some period of years he has communicated a message. He's gotten the requisite poll numbers to be on the stage. The question will be after the South Carolina primaries. If you have eight moderate Democrats all of whom might have a greater chance of beating Donald Trump and does Bernie Sanders? Will some of those candidates get out of the race to help coalesce support around the strongest? Moderate candidate? Poor the issue right now in the Democratic primaries you cannot make an objective judgement and say Bernie Sanders is going to go down to Donald Trump in the swing states on the basis of poll numbers because the poll numbers. Don't support that in those states. But when you look at Bernie Sanders positions that we should criminalize illegal immigration. That we're going to take health insurance away from one hundred fifty million people who have private health insurance a of other issues the type of rhetoric that you saw him use on sixty minutes talking about Castro. All of these issues come together. In a way that I think objectively with James Carville said is disqualifying for somebody running for president in somebody. Who'S LIKELY TO LOSE TO DONALD TRUMP and I think that's what you're saying. A lot of panic in the democratic electorate in the democratic officeholder class in these days really focused on Steve Schmidt always a pleasure. Thank you for

Campaign Director Joz Sida on Tom Steyer's Nevada Chances

"Am recording this in a hotel room in Jackson Mississippi because in the thick the political podcasts at I go. Who'S IN WE'RE IN JACKSON? Mississippi this week for a couple of shows and had a chance to connect with Josh's Sita via phone. She's in Las Vegas. Jaws is the Nevada state director for the Tom. Steiner campaign wanted to check in because according to their campaign. They're actually doing well or they say they're doing well. Although national polling or Nevada polling might suggest otherwise nonetheless. I think it's important to hear from candidates and their campaigns. And as you know it's about three or four days before the Nevada caucuses. Also the the Las Vegas debate happening on Wednesday as of now as of this recording star is not qualified for that debate. But you never know but anyway. Here's a phone call that I had with jaws about an hour ago and I wanted to share it with you guys right now on Latino rebels radio. Hey guys thank you so much for for taking my call. I know you must be really really busy couple of days before the clock is can you just tell me at least from from the campaign? What in terms of early voting or anything you can share about your campaign That's been happening the last couple of days. I know definitely actually. We're very very excited because Nevada when we started in August of last year we were at two percent right and as we build a team with diverse group of people actually reflect a lotta. We went up to nine percent and then subsequently later on wind up twelve percent and right. Now we're seeing our internal like numbers. I think came out today where at eighteen percents on and I also was a lot of early vote especially in smaller communities are out of in in mass four times and it doesn't his message resonates and and all of the. Vata Nevada is a sample of the country has purple Blue States. Red States And I think that that's important to reflect and I hope not you know the Democratic Party that the national Democratic Party can see that the voices of Nevada's needs to be heard right and so what we're seeing in early as large numbers of people coming out And you know we hope that this is an inclusive transparent election process because if it is I know for a fact that Tom side will come out specifically in the top three so How is not being on the debate? Stage is that GONNA play a role Going into Saturday for time starts right now. We're still waiting. We're waiting to see the like we have a five pm right but if it's not I mean com is going to continue to me voters whether at I think the momentum going to stop We have built a strong team in Nevada. That are people that have worked in the stay for years are building families years so a lot of mistakes not just for the for all the families that are working in the campaign to support Thomas Values. So I think Tom GonNa be stronger than ever and continued and reward whether at all everybody else's on the debate stage she's GonNa be out making sure that he's having conversations and moralizing folks to the poll that he always have Next future so I think he's going to continue to the work It doesn't stop until until you know. He's so and I think every twenty seconds before says anything affordable pools so talk to me a little bit about the local aspect of of of the state because one of the things that I understand and having followed it for a while. Is that this political power especially from the Latino community has been out there for years And this and it's almost like suddenly everyone's I quote unquote discovering that. It's hard to you know what I'm saying. Like talk to me about the locally. You mentioned the local. I understand that the payments continues to go local Look Trust me about the organizers. Even others who who decided to do align themselves with dire to support him. And what does it mean in the context of like local? Nevada politics that this is something that You know he might. At least you know he's GonNa get votes. Whatever it is we don't know but but at least the fact that I'm talking to you a couple of days before and you're telling me these internals people come and volunteer and who knows what's going to happen on Saturday. Yeah why did that strategy work at least for some of them like star? Who might not have known I? I somebody WHO's working Latino community for years. I seen a lot of politicians are about broken promises. Come into our communities talking to us about things that wanted to for us and then when they get elected they forget about us and It's always been A pathway for champion so we say they get the Latino. Vote the win and it's true but the community needs to actually representing in dire husband. Suddenly without being an elected official for politician has invested so much in the community with four war featuring next and as a philanthropist themselves him and his wife gave out of their own money over three million dollars to help families that were in detention being invited to being deported in California other than they've invested over three hundred and thirty million dollars to help Round families have actually good food in their schools from their communities in Central Valley of California. So they've been You know the sires com sire and can enforce how Zanny I put together to help the comedians behind this team so when people find out when we just talked to to power and people find out so like Oh my God like this guy actually is a real deal find it so it's not a hard opportunity to convince people and is the budget being able to get our message out there and that's what we don't locally. We hosted a debate watch party in Spanish with Twenty three churchgoers moisture We hosted In our headquarters In in Las Vegas on December twelfth. You know we have done organizing with our families in our communities because that is what it's about. It's not about winning entertainer. I think you have a good day. Immigration reform is on longer priorities. It's about it's about you know uplifting on your way to victory stampings come to our communities and then they do what they gotta do and they leave. Our goal is my goal as director for Com sir. Nevada it's still a community than we got and they about investing in the community. That were in organizers. People who have worked for me. Well it's people who have worked with near all planned parenthood for future next-gen who has invested time and energy in Nevada who are battle-tested And our battle born to be able to make sure that we were. We were hitting. We're going where nobody else is going. That's different from everybody out. We're going to meet the community where we went to veterans village. We've had round tables with with communities and nobody else would even think of. They actually do it. After the fact a lot of the venues now elected officials are coming to seat for to be to go to host their events. The owners aw endorses. Because we've we've been in the community far before we don't use candidate just actually Organiz. We organize our candy hostage and work in other states and we continue to do the work and nothing ever reflecting the Bulls on on Saturday. So can I just ask you like I are people in the community like I know there was a lot made about him? Not Knowing the name of the Mexican president. Is that even an issue? Because I felt like I got that from a couple of campaigns and I was just curious. What's what's the campaign has said about it Any more because I think it's I told him it's all right but You know being Mexican American is always interesting to see like you know. Not Everybody knows you know presidents from other countries. But I think it's really the campaign life right like traveling going up and down and sometimes it's that moment where you're just like I know it's there. I know it's in my head but it won't come out right but But Yeah I know he definitely understands that that's something that he should have already known but he knew spread. It was at that moment. Like okay Yeah that's interesting by knowing that that question by and then he other candidate would be asked whether it's thinking about you know being the road in her competitive nature of the field You know I could happen to anyone. but I remember doing that in college where I actually meet people. You know perspective of like you know what's going on our minds and in that moment doesn't Gotcha questions questions. But like I said. I know that Tom in the community. Especially Thomas Somebody who who people really wanted to get to know perspective your faith faith family values with the Holzer And that goes a long way from that. Because that's what people love to see your family together because they know that he understands what that means concern.

Sanders Won: What We Learned From New Hampshire

"So Stephen. Let's take a look at the big news this week in New Hampshire. I can the results from New Hampshire are in. Let me take this opportunity. Thank the people of the Hampshire for a great victory tonight and Bernie Sanders is speed out. judge by a small margin. He pulled in twenty six percent of the vote submitting himself as the front runner. After winning the popular vote in Iowa and Joe Biden. Who on stage at the New Hampshire debate admitted that he might not do well in the state finished a meager fifth behind the Surgeon Club? Char and Warren who has struggled of late? So let's take a look at how energy and climate fit into those results in for closer. Look we turn to any rope. Eke who covers energy and climate at New Hampshire public radio any. Hi thanks for having me so any use. National survived the New Hampshire primary to today after the primary How are you feeling? Oh I'm doing okay. I got home at about one thirty in the morning which I think was a lot better than most of my colleagues did I was covering anger Yang last night and he dropped out of the race. Just really right as I was starting to get ready for a long night so so I think it went relatively calmly for me. Any was was the outcome. Obvious to you or or was something unexpected about these results. I think Sanders was widely favored to win this race. You know he won New Hampshire by a wide margin in two thousand sixteen. He's from our neighbor Vermont. And you know this is really thought it was kind of sanders country when it comes to the Democratic primary I think it's in the sort of lower down Roy Candidates that the results become a little more surprising people to judge finished a lot closer behind sanders than I think many might have expected and Amy Klobuchar especially as you said finished way higher than the recent polls had expected her to and then You know drove I into tempered. Expectations So his fifth-place finish wasn't a huge chocolate Elizabeth Warren I think didn't do nearly as well. Here's some had expected her to there seemed to be a lot of support for her on the ground and so her Far trailing finishes kind of a surprise to some folks here yeah. I was surprised by that I did that. That really may do her in To do that badly. Papering state but let's talk about how climate Have a climate issue played into this into this race. The Washington Post today tells us that Among climate I voters voters care most about climate The candidate who got the most votes was pete. Buddha judge did that reflect anything that he was doing on the ground. I mean whether differences in the way that Buddha judge campaigned on climate than front than other candidates. Did you know he didn't focus on it? much more than any other candidate. I was sort of surprised to see that I think just you know on paper. One would expect Bernie Sanders to be the climate candidate. You know he's most closely aligned with the green new deal if you're climate voter and you care about government spending on this Sanders Price. Tag is far ahead of any of his competitors. But I think just sort of early speculative guess would be that Buddha just supporters are the kind of people that would consider themselves or that would consider climate change to be their top issue. So maybe it's not so much that climate voters flocked to him so much as Buddha judge supporters also care about climate change and as well as he did in the election. Sandra's underperformed on the climate issue Share of the vote from climate. I voters was less than his overall. Share Yeah I think that senders he focuses. Mostly Medicare for all and when we look at polling data for what voters care about In New Hampshire it has been healthcare number one away and it's been climate change number two. Sometimes it'll edge up to number one. Sometimes it's just in the top three so it's up there but you know healthcare is such a centerpiece of so many of these candidates canes especially Bernie Sanders and so he talks about climate change plenty but no candidate really makes it the centerpiece of their campaign. The way a Jay inslee did or even the way Tom. Steyer has tried to In the top of the packers not seeing that. What did you hear what were some of the nuances between candidates that you picked up on? And how are they positioning themselves against each other during the campaign? Yeah it was really interesting to see how they tried to do that. Because I think the surface and to sort of lay people watching this issue. It was hard to tell the difference between a lot of their campaigns if you compare it to the stance the current White House has taken on climate change. They're they're all just so far left of that issue that they all Kinda group together and can be hard to pick apart so you really have to delve into some of the details and almost be kind of better versed in the details. That a lot of voters are to understand the differences. There were a few issues that stood out to me as dividing lines though One of those would be their opinions on nuclear power so Sanders was sort of the farthest in one direction on that he would like to phase out the use of nuclear altogether. No new plans closed current reactors. He does not see a place for it in his clean energy future on the other end of that spectrum you had Now former candidate Andrea. Who was the only candidate who really openly supported expansion of nuclear power and then the middle of the pack the Biden's and Buddha judges would say We can continue using our current reactors. They definitely have ruled play and getting us to a net zero carbon emissions. But we don't want to build any new plants and we have concerns about waste and safety Carbon tax or carbon pricing was another one of those sanders Had at one time supported this idea but more recently backed off on it saying he just thought it was too late for that to really have an impact some other candidates with kind of hedge on it they would say it's part of our solution it's not going to be our only solution And then just the sort of tone that they would strike interested me. There were candidates who focused more on foreign policy on the free market economics and like global development financing to address climate change that would be Biden's and the Buddha judges and then there were candidates like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders who focused much more on government spending on on tax credits and on Sort of federal incentives and carrots and sticks for companies to address. This problem. What I heard was that there are a lot of folks who are still very undecided. There were some voters who were saying. Well you know my my son or daughter is Supporting Sanders I'm interested in sanders by also really like Buddha judge and also still considering Yang and if I think about the differences in those candidates they are extraordinary and so I wonder. How much are people really differentiating on the energy and climate issues? Are they just taking a look at candidates and saying well? I know they're strong this issue. So That's enough for me or do they really care about these nuances. You know. That's a great question. New Hampshire voters are famous for making decisions late in the game. I talked to lots of voters as recently as Monday night. Who said I am going to find out who I'm voting for when I wake up tomorrow morning and I'll see him feeling and so they wanted to know the details of their plan and maybe some of them wanted to see a more progressive or or aggressive or expensive plan verses. Not maybe some of the wanted to see more of that foreign policy focus but I think for most voters even if they did consider climate change their top issue. It was hard for them to unpack the details of these planes enough to really make their decision solely based on that. Did you get the sense from the reporting? You've done in New Hampshire. That climate is a higher priority issue there than it might be in other states. I do think it seems to be a high priority here. We had a poll in January. That put it at the top. Most important issue for voters here But we were also surprised to see it. Come in number two in Iowa so I think I'll be really interested to see as the polling kind of spreads out across the country and goes race by race to see if other states feel that way too but I think people in the northeast are very Environmentally conscious New Hampshire especially as a state that really prides itself on its four season outdoor recreation. We have beaches and lakes and snow in mountains and forests and and people are generally aware that all of those things are being reshaped by climate change. But I I'm withholding judgement on whether it'll be a big issue for other Other primaries I think you know other states are just as effective or more in their own ways by this issue and I wouldn't be surprised if we continue to see this in the spotlight when they get to other states any. Thanks so much for on I. I note that you managed to sneak in a little plug for tourism in New Hampshire Unintentional. But definitely top of mind here. Any row peak covers energy and climate at New Hampshire public radio. Thanks again thank you so Stephen. Our audience may not be aware of this. But you are from New Hampshire at. Tell me what What you thought about what Andy said. That's right. I've spent many political cycles as a New Hampshire resident. So I know how New Hampshire voters think about this issue and there's one really important thing that any said there which I think plays into the climate and energy peace and that is so many voters make their choices at the last minute and so what that tells me is that a lot of these voters are listening to the energy and climate messages. They really care but they're still not quite differentiating on the issues. They just care that the candidate is doing something. And that may be unique to New Hampshire voters who are often determining their vote at the last minute. But I think that's probably going to be something that we see in other states as well. Yeah and you know the the big question for most of them in all likelihood was which one of them can take out trump. Oh absolutely that. That is a theme on this show. You talked voters across the spectrum. Who CARE ABOUT THIS ISSUE? And they all say of course. I want my candidate to take big action. But ultimately they're deciding about whether that candidate can be trump.

How much will Michael Bloomberg spend to defeat Trump?

"Former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg's only been in this race for a couple of months but he is coming out big in the last few weeks. Michael Shear is a national political reporter for the Post Mayor. Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer are outspending. The Field Bloomberg has more money than God. He's opening his Wallet Wallet in Nationwide Advertising and the former mayor is spending more in this race than any of his Democratic rivals is absolutely true that he is spending more money than anyone. Anyone else probably anyone in history has ever spent at this point but that almost understates. What distinguishes Bloomberg's campaign from every other presidential campaign every other political campaign in in any of our lifetimes is a campaign that has no financial boundaries? I'm spending all my money to get rid of down. It's not that he is spending more. It's that there are no limits on what he will spend. You want me to spend more or less and the story which is hard idea to get your head around but usually don't have people were fifty four billion dollars running for president so Bloomberg can depart with a billion and not notice it could depart with two billion and not notice. It's pretty hard after two billion to even spend spend more money on a political race and what that means is right now. He's doing everything at once and he's trying to do it better than everyone else that means he has basically built for what looks like a long shot primary campaign a fully formed general election campaign. The sort of thing you would see if you'd walked into Hillary Clinton's Brooklyn Offices in October worth twenty sixteen. He has it now in January for primary campaign in March and he's built it basically in two months from scratch so exactly. How much money is he spending spending? And what is that. Look like in terms of his strategy on how he could possibly win so so far Bloomberg is laid down two hundred million dollars. Probably more her in television and radio and digital spending He has offices in twenty seven states right now. He employs more than eight hundred people people on his campaign. He has rented out an entire floor of a building previously occupied by the New York Times. Actually in Times Square in Manhattan it is clearly clearly the biggest campaign I think on either side right now and he's doing it. After entering the race about two months ago he is also oh spending enormous amounts of money and plans to spend much more on general election strategy to defeat Donald trump and that includes a data operation that he's building building because his advisers think he can actually build basically a better data consulting firm than exists right now on the democratic side that includes a pre large policy shop in which he's basically re purposed Bloomberg philanthropies and the opinion section of Bloomberg News Division to produce ideas for the Democratic Party and includes WHO's a lot of money he is offering to give to other state and local Democratic Party organizations. We don't really know the extent of that. But for instance. He gave five million dollars to stacey. Abrams voter voter protection initiative. He's pledged millions more for voter registration around the country. He gave nearly a million dollars to the Democratic National Committee when he got in but at the same time even though he has all this money. And it's spending all this money he's still starting so much later than so many other candidates so for these early states. Like Iowa New Hampshire Hampshire. What does it look like? They're how is he going to catch up. He's not going to catch up in our New Hampshire. He's decided that he's not going to compete in the first four primary contests. That's a shift. From what strategy. He was a year ago when he was thinking of initially getting in but he didn't get in in time and and their benefits to that for him. There's not gonNA be any disappointment in terms of his showing in the Iowa caucus because he's not competing the our caucus he's not advertising Iowa except for what shows up on national. TV that goes there the downside though is he's not going to plant the flag either and he's sort of thrown up to chance the fate of his campaign to whether or not the Democratic Party decides to get behind someone In those early states because he has no control rollover this release dates so for him it basically just like do or die on Super Tuesday that will be his day. No Day will matter more in the Democratic primary calendar March third third. And that's because you know something like a forty percent of the delegates including fourteen states including very large states like Texas and California will will be awarded on that day the beginning of his day. We'll be Super Tuesday but I think doer di happens before that I think do or die is whether Joe Biden does really well in the first four contests of Joe Biden comes out of Iowa. Winning does well in New Hampshire wins. Nevada Win South Carolina which polls suggest he can do he will have solidified the moderate lame that that Michael Bloomberg Berg is trying to get an and I think there won't be much chance for him to have much of an impact in the election. I think still run on Super Tuesday but but the but the space he would would've occupied will be taken but he's willing to make that bet he's okay with that and there is a very good chance probably greater than half chance that doesn't happen and that either the Democratic Party splits among those first four contests leading to some chaos walking into Super Tuesday or Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Elizabeth Warren and some of the more progressive cancer doing very well and the moderate side of the party is being to freak out by the time Super Tuesday a rolls around and and then Mike Bloomberg can step pendants. I got this I got not only the campaign I got the message and I got the money and I'll and I'll carry you through but it's not like he's a candidate without any baggage rate. There are plenty of reasons. Why a lot of voters a lot of democratic voters might be very resistant to the idea of voting for him? There are much more of that is likely to come out in the in the coming months. Let's start with democratic. Primary voters have not been really happy about income inequality generally and and the increasing role of billionaires. There's in politics and explicitly buying his way through the race is sort of a bad luck. Yeah he's he's the poster child for that his defenses. I'm doing it for you. I'm on your side so I'm like the friendly billionaire but he's still the billionaire buying politics. There's a lot of complexities to what it would mean to have someone who has run and still owns one of the largest largest private companies in America as president the same sort of complexities. You have with President Trump. He's going to have to work through that. There's a long history of employee lawsuits at his company Bloomberg some of them dealing with sexual harassment there are nondisclosure agreements that he has said he is not willing to release the other parties from at this point. That's probably going to be an issue. There are policy positions. He's taken in the past. That have offended. Big parts of the Democratic electorate including his longtime support for stop and frisk policing in New York since renounce that but for you know more than a decade he was sort of the lead champion of that policy. So there are lots of bumps Salaam the road ahead if everything goes right for him. The thing that distinguishes him is that he doesn't seem to mind. I mean the idea of risk for him is is calculated related differently than it would be for other candidates and that includes not just risk to his reputation but also risk

Tom Steyer polling at 2nd place in South Carolina, qualifies for DNC debate this month

"Meanwhile what's going right for Tom Stiers the California billionaire and presidential candidate will be on the debate stage tomorrow because of his unusually high poll numbers his polling jumped in two key early primary states last week a fox news poll showed him at fifteen percent in South Carolina that puts him second behind only Joe Biden and he's tied for third with Elizabeth Warren in Nevada at twelve percent it'll bump joins me now his national correspondent for The Washington Post any right about how Stiers shaping the twenty twenty election hello hello well before we get a star let's just talk about Booker what happened with him essentially what happened with him is that he was never able to get real traction his campaign and there are a lot of reasons that's probably the case one of course being that the field is so big another being that there are other candidates who shared his his sort of broadly moderate space in the field who were able to get more traction people like judge from Indiana were really able to get to eat into that space and sort of present themselves as new in a way that that Booker had trouble doing you his is the story of a lot of these cameras which is that it it's hard to get in front of orders nationally and brokerages was able to do it right and he certainly complain that one of the reasons he couldn't get enough facetime nationally was the DMC the debate rules that the DNC put forward he criticized the rule saying that billionaire candidates like Styrum Bloomberg can really game the system because they can put so much advertising on TV and really attracts people in in Paul's does he have a point there is he's got extremely good point in that the DNC rules were created specifically to trying well we know down the field but by doing so what the DNC ended up doing an advert only was rewarding people who were able to make a very strategic massive investments in certain places I and punish those who weren't so well Booker did have a national a profile as a senator from the from the state New Jersey he was not able to for example spend the kind of money that one could to either influence individual polls or get his name out and ends and get a lot of small donors to give to his campaign and that limit is is rich well speaking of let's hear a clip of tape from CNN yesterday where Jake tapper is specifically asking Tom Stiers about spending money for poll numbers ninety one percent of television ad spending in South Carolina is from you ninety seven percent of television ad spending in Nevada is from you do you not think that it's your millions and the flood of advertising in those states that that's why you did well in the polls and are now on the debate stage Jake if you'll read today's Washington post there's a story about this and what it details is what's actually going on on the ground I've been to South Carolina multiple times we have eighty two organizers on the ground in South Carolina I match your grass roots person I've been there there's someone who didn't endorse me who's a politician in South Carolina who said expire came down here he rolled up his sleeves he went out he listen to people he sat across the table he work okay so feel of what's the truth there is it's the money buying the polls or is he actually doing the work to get the support I mean a I think it sort of gives the game way himself when he says he has eighty eighty however many organizes on the ground as organizes aren't working for free and you can you know Cory Booker didn't everyday organizes on ground is gonna forty eighty organizer's on the ground right I mean did tappers numbers about that TV spending or write us tire is dominated in South Carolina and Nevada television spots in the reason he's done so is very simple the democratic rule said you need to be at a certain percentage of support in the early state polls in the waste tires I'd do that was poor bunch of money in the states that so far other came it's like Joe Biden Bernie Sanders aren't spending money in because they're further down the line right but Snyder has the money he just sort of put a bunch of money into the states in advertising there he can put a bunch of staff in those states push up his numbers in those states and hit the mark he needs in order to make the debate stage but will that translate into votes when it comes down to it when it comes to Iowa to New Hampshire and then later to South Carolina and Nevada so far it hasn't seemed as though it's going to work I mean one of the things he's clearly trying to do is get on the debate stage but after his debate performances it's not as though he suddenly shoots up in the polls he still only about two percent nationally debates are obviously something that should be reflected in national poll numbers because there are national events of people tune into I think one of the things we're going to see is after Iowa New Hampshire we will see whoever does better in those states start to see more support in the next two states down the line though as being South Carolina and Nevada and I think that'll start to flood out some of the attention it's Dyer has bought for himself and it's certainly possible to maybe Stiers all out of the blue find today big appeal from Democrats nationally so far though even though he's managed to get on the debate stage he hasn't been able to make a case the really persuades lot national Democrats to support even though he was early on the impeachment wagon he took out ads along time ago basically calling for Donald trump's impeachment is that not translating into support in the Democratic Party now aids late hasn't so far I mean I think that there certainly was an aspect of that that was that was viewed by a least among political observers as being someone self serving was pretty clear that he was using impeachment of sort of get his name out there I that said even though he has your right for months you know well over a year and sort of blanketing the airwaves with his own image and this call for impeachment again he's a two percent nationally in the polls and that too if that we're going to have an effect would be reflected in those national poll numbers so he'll be on the debate stage tomorrow but Michael Bloomberg will not and why is that because he certainly has been blanketing the airwaves with ads right but in different places Bloomberg has made a conscious decision not to take contributions from people and that has meant that he's it's impossible for him to meet to debate standards which require a certain number of contributions from people around the country and as such will Bloomberg Astana's he's were largely issued the first several states that are gonna be voting and really focused on super Tuesday the first Tuesday March when a bunch of large states on a lot of states including California and Texas go to the polls so Bloomberg spent a lot of money on ads but he spent it in those other early states he hasn't spent a lot in South Carolina or Nevada and if you look at the rationale behind that it makes some sense there are a lot more delegates at stake in that first Tuesday March then it will be in any of the four states that come up before then so do you see Starfire as this campaign goes forward into super Tuesday DEC Stiers star waning and Bloomberg's taking off one I'm not even sure that the star has much of a start of Wayne and it certainly did well in this fox news poll on some other polls that that have been doing moderately okay but he's not doing very well as a candid Bloomberg being a part of lunch money in the race he's not doing particularly well either but I think the Bloomberg strategy is designed to pay off later in the cycle then is tires I animal I mean star has enough money to stay in and told the general election if you want to do which is something the Bloomberg says he's going to do is actually so I don't see our missile dropping out anytime soon just question how much money he wants the perk right so it ends worth noting that he's rich but he's not Bloomberg rich right it's like one point six billion verses fifty four billion yeah as Michael Bloomberg will point out very few people are Michael Bloomberg rich right well what does this say to you when you take a step back and look at the whole big picture of money in politics what is this a two year does money translated into votes can you say about this early well I mean obviously when we're talking about these poll numbers were not necessarily talking about votes I'll be interested to see if Stiers decent position and some is always winning states were pointed out to buy his winning in both those states right now it's gonna be interesting to see if it does translate that certainly has in the past in the case that people have been able to pour a lot of money into campaigns and do better than you might have expected but again that doesn't always hold driver Jeb bush in twenty sixteen add you know nine figures that he was gonna spend both directly and have people spend on his behalf needed terribly in the presidential primaries so so it's not a one to one correlation but it's clearly the case that we are right now talking about Tom star and Mike Bloomberg while we are at the same time watching established US centers like Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand standing on the sidelines after having announcer campuses money definitely does by you the ability to stick around as long as you want

Democratic Party, Secretary Castro And Tom Steyer discussed on MSNBC Rachel Maddow (audio)

"Twenty twenty democratic presidential field is big over the summer the democratic party <hes> had to debates and each debate needed to separate nights to give each of the twenty qualifying candidates a place on the stage. It was a very very big rodeo well for the next debate which is next month. The democratic party raised the stakes qualifying. They made it harder to get into the next debate. They upped the polling threshold. They also up up to the fundraising threshold. They also required candidates to qualify on both counts both on polling and fundraising instead of making it either or like it was for those first two debates. It's well as of today. There's a weekend day left to qualify for that next debate in september and one more candidate has made it as of today on castro former housing and urban development secretary had already met the fundraising threshold today. He met the polling requirement a new c._n._n. Poll showing him at two percents. Secretary castro is the last qualifier for the next debate that means there will be ten candidates on stage these ten you see on your screen right here. If it's is just those ten that means we'll have a single night of debate unlike two nights for the first two debates that already happened but i gotta tell you with eight days left to qualify for the next debate. There are a few other other candidates who are still close to making it billionaire environmentalist. Tom steyer has hit the fundraising numbers already. He only needs one more hold. Put him at two percent or more and he's into the debate tulsi gabbard the hawaii congresswoman.

Billionaire Tom Steyer latest presidential candidate to join 2020 field

"Next democratic debate station HOUSTON MID-SEPTEMBER CAN AIDS have to meet both fundraising and polling thresholds one of those who was is not in Detroit stage this week but certainly wants to be next month to California is billionaire. Tom Steyer declared his presidential candidacy after months of television campaigning to impeach president trump and saying saying initially that he wouldn't be running himself. I spoke with Mr Starr just before airtime Mr sorry you saw the democratic debates this week I assumed the candidates on on the stage did spend a lotta time going after each other instead of taking on President Trump I'm wondering does that strategy weaken the eventual nominee and lead to president president trump winning. What did you make of it? Well Anderson my argument. All along has been that we have a broken government and that we need to return that government from the corporations who've bought it to the American people so when I listened to those debates what I'm listening for is somebody who will practically quickly tell me how we're going to do that so that we're going to be able to deliver all those promises that people are making about healthcare and green new deal in education and I didn't hear that right vision of how we're going to deliver for the American people in reality during those debates I did hear a lot of criticism of each other and President Obama when you hear candidates. It's talking about taking away private insurance from some hundred sixty million Americans. Is that something that you think Democrats can win on well Anderson. I do believe that healthcare is a right for every American and that we should have a public option that is available to every American citizen but the idea of telling one hundred fifty million Americans who get their healthcare through their employment that they don't have a choice but to do what the government tells them them about their health and their life doesn't seem to make any sense to me. This is still a free country what we should do is make the public option so attractive active and so relatively inexpensive that people petition their employers that they go on the public option and get a big race as a result of the employer no longer paying for their healthcare. Are you going to be on the stage at the next debate. Are you going to be able to get there. Yes yes I am. What is the status of that can you do you have a sense is how far you are from that look? I'm not following a day to day but I know that there are two there two requirements Anderson one is to have four poles at a certain level and and within two weeks we had two of those four and we'll see some more polls come out this week but so far my message seems to be being received better better even than I had hoped and so we'll see how the polls go but so far better than expected and if we keep going at the level in terms of donations that were at then then we'll make it there as well. We have to do work. We're not gonNA stop working but we're on track to make. Would you obviously you've thought about I assume when you watch the debates you imagine yourself on them and you think about how we're how. What would my strategy be here? Where would you we're? Do you see yourself in this field. I mean if view believe in a spectrum of left of progressives and centrists. Where do you see yourself well Anderson my basic basic? Thesis here is that we need to retake government for the people of the United States return government of buying for the people and so I see myself for what I am which is

Tom Steyer talks voter turnout

"I start an organization called next Gen Emerica yes it is the large registering young you need to vote dot com you did seem to rattle much organization in the country and one of the things we did in twenty eighteen was we pick thirty eight congressional district held by Republicans and we focused on people under thirty five yeah and we more than doubled the turnout from four years before that's the largest generation in America bigger than the baby boomers they were voting at half the rates of other Americans we said in order for Democrats to retake the house we need this generation to show up yep and so when I think about why we flipped all those seats and those were the seat you know that we chose the ones that we thought were flip a bowl but we're definitely in play the answer's turned out there the number of Democrats who turned out in twenty eighteen to twenty thirteen with two thirds more I know you're gonna be a Chris Hayes later today tune into MSNBC to see Tom joy Reid was just on our show this week she has a new book out and she said we have minority rule in this country she said because we don't vote and white evangelicals crawl over broken glass to vote and that that is one of the I mean that's one of many factors but she's right we what was the turn out Travis was for white evangelicals it's close to a hundred percent of them turn it turned out and that's why we sing for us to win there are many more joys exactly right there are many more of us we need to organize and show up and that's what I've been doing for ten years we've been organizing people to be registered to be engaging the issues and to show up and vote and we've done that you know we I think when we focus on the huge percentage of Americans who don't vote instead of the very small percentage of people can't decide if they like Mr trump yeah we get all those people and that's forty percent of America not the two percent of campus I think our sense of urgency I think I have we both have fascism early warning systems in our blood we found out it on our impeachment but bill road show spontaneously the both of our dads were Republicans and Nuremberg prosecutors and John Cooper tweets history teaches us that wimps don't be fascists appeasement doesn't beat faster stronger McConnell the twenty twenty election will not be free and fair in fact they're counting on that I'm if there is a conclusion to be drawn from Nuremberg it's this when you see something really wrong you fight it every day you don't show up every six weeks or every six months and register protest you fight it every single day every time it rains it's ugly on your chairmanship yesterday talking about what happened part of what I found so powerful about his testimony today was not just when he was asked about the law but when he was asked about the affects the morality the lack of patriotism of this conduct and perhaps one of most chilling moments I think our committee was when he expressed the fear that this become the new normal and of course I think what is animating that fear of the director would certainly and that's it animated for me is the fact even after the nightmare of the last two and a half years the president of the United States will still not forswear receiving foreign help again hi okay so now how do you what what okay first of all what we do how do we get times are on the debate stage next time let's get him into the debate look up there to rules which what's website what we do Tom Selleck dot com and we have a little time start your dot com and give me a box and we have a link to that at your website and at your Facebook and Twitter pacey I did the show me the money yeah right you to help me help you I need a hundred and thirty thousand donations okay and so I'm asking people to give me a Buck to get me on the stage so I can make the case for taking back our democracy and actually speaking up for the people let the people relook at I this you for how many times I've asked you for money one time just do it let's talk about what first what would you do what how do you what is your strategy for running against trump supporters from call he will weird al look I think you can tell who is certainly I think I'm the perfect person to take this guy on the good twin comes to the economy he's a fake and he's a failure and I have no problem yeah people don't seem to feel comfortable I spent thirty years studying economics through investment and through looking at countries no economic system works he is a disaster in competent person I just had a like not moment I'm gonna be your campaign manager okay there was no but you and this is how you run against them calling us socialism personal I'm like why don't we ask them what about their party's drift toward fascism but this and you are the perfect I would call you a compassionate capitalist look so we can say we are not socialist but we are but but you know you do so much you give so much of your money there is a difference there is the pure greed of Donald Trump who's never done anything for anybody but himself but when you think about this Stephanie see if this works for you this analogy that I use sometimes I say look the United States is like a car we have democracy and we have capitalism a marker see is how we're supposed to steer the car and decide where to go the people get to choose right we get to choose what the laws are we get to choose what the rules are but the thing that is the engine of the car is capitalism and so that it has to be able to run to make us move forward but it can't steer the car yeah when the engine starts telling the car where to go you get what we have now which is the people's interests are being served but we still need that engine to go by so I don't hate the engine I just know this it can't run the car we can't have cook we can't have drug companies telling us what the prices of drugs are going to be don't you love how much they hate when liberals are going to capitalism we made the wrong kind of billion dollars the funny thing here is Mr trump has a operating procedure that led him to bankrupt all these casinos makes huge promises yeah he borrows money leverages it is a frightening it goes bankrupt and he walks away yeah and that's we're in the middle of him trying to turn the United States of America into one of these failed it Lennix thanks yes he is with the trillion he's whatever right that's who we is he's a fake let's talk about the five rights which you called the right to an equal vote the right to clean air and clean water the right to learn the right to a living wage and the right to health that sounds a lot talked about it because it sounds pretty good plan to me one of the things that is true is we talk as if this country were a failure with the most successful country in the history of the world yeah we can afford to put ourselves in a place that is better than any people ever we do have to take on these corporations and get back our democracy but if we do that we can afford healthcare for everybody we can afford a quality public education from pre K. through college with ongoing skills training we can afford clean air and clean water and we can afford a living wage for every working American we can't afford that right now we have the money we have to take back the democracy to do it but I'm saying that is a baseline of security for every American we're in a position to create unimaginably great times for ourselves we do have to beat these corporations and we have to control the climate yeah we've got to stop talking like we are succeeding this is the most successful country ever let's give ourselves some credit beat the challenges we need and let's win and make and create when Americans have always created the country in the world Tom and I I I so appreciated and resonated with what you did during this last election what you talked about earlier is with next Gen and need to vote about getting younger people excited and motivated I've been saying on this show I mean I'm old as dirt and I I am so inspired by the a season the receipt to leaves in these fears young women that we got into Congress that obviously terrify trump and the Republicans but I you know what it's like a see she seems like a flash from the future to me like I I you know she knows how to connect with young people on social media she makes me believe that we can do big things again look what we've talked to hundreds of thousands of young people and ask them why they don't vote and they always say the same thing the system doesn't work no one tells the truth neither party addresses our needs it doesn't make any difference and I'm like oh no yeah that can't happen that's the end of democracy if people have that attitude we need to go out there and talk about what can happen if we tell the truth if we go out and retake the government what we can provide in a way that everybody's life will be materially different and materially better and we're in a position to do that right now we just have to
