"Thinking maybe we should listen to her this time when she says, she's warning of the, you know, the midterms talking about not setting ourselves up for rejection by a country by embracing extremist positions. She just said, we are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy and everything that everybody else cares about goes out the window. Look the most important thing is to win the next election, the alternative is so frightening that whatever does not help you win should not be a priority. She specifically was talking about how they misuse the whole defund the police. She said, you need accountable measures, but you need policing. It doesn't even pass the common sense politics test not to believe that. Some positions are so extreme on both the right and the left that they retreated to their corners, politics should be the art of addition, not subtraction. And we just didn't weren't able to counter that well, because what we meant is allocate funds differently in police shouldn't be involved in certain things that would be better done. Right. But defund the police is a very easy thing to say. Oh, really, nobody comes when you call and your house is getting broken into. So that's what it sounds like. So right. I don't know that you can get a different pithy or slogan. Right. Rob Reiner says Donald Trump has been committing crimes his entire life. His time for accountability has arrived. Thank you. Okay, so that's the right, this is why sexy liberal tour is the save democracy tour. By the way, do we announce another date that I didn't? We wouldn't announce that while I thought I saw that. I mean, we could. We got a fun. That's because that's what the midterms are about, right? Saving democracy. Period. Are you for democracy or not? Period. I mean, it's okay. By the way, empathy for all tweets, Rick Scott, Tommy tuberville, Tom cotton, Josh hawley, the whole package of these guys. They were all trying to burn down the process before the mob arrived. They had a legal strategy in their minds that was underpinning this. Thank you. The call is coming from inside the house. The people that do not believe democracy are in our government. Uh, which I think is what we're doing. I don't know. It's a call coming from inside the house. That's democracy.

"Senate democratic chief Chuck Schumer is pushing Republicans to finally act on guns after the Texas shooting With 20 little kids dead Please damn it please think if it was your child or grandchild But Schumer notes the prospects of GOP senators shifting course in helping pass substantial laws to curb gun violence are very slim even as leader Mitch McConnell blasted the shooting It's literally sickening Alabama Republican Tommy tuberville said regulating guns won't solve anything This is a mental health issue Guns are not the problem okay People are the problem New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker says that's the problem Mines are made up It doesn't matter if more kids died This is just going to be the same thing as it was after Parkland after newtown Here nothing is changing Sagar Meghani Washington

U.S. Senate Passes $1.5 Trillion Gov't Funding Bill With Ukraine Aid
"So I want to get into a story here that broke late last night. The United States Senate has approved the $1.5 trillion spending bill that expands the power of the IRS and dramatically increases the size and scope of government last evening, but also it sends $13.6 billion to Ukraine. We're going to get into that. Now Senate Republicans voted for this 18 of them voted for it. Senator barrasso from Wyoming, Roy blunt from Missouri. Shelley Moore capito from West Virginia, Susan Collins from Maine, John cornyn from Texas, Joni Ernst from Iowa, Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, chuck grassley from Iowa. Kathy Hyde Smith from Mississippi, Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. Senator Moran from Kansas, Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, rob Portman from Ohio, senator Shelby from Alabama, John thune from South Dakota, Tommy tuberville from Alabama, a senator wicker from Mississippi and senator young from Indiana. Approved Nancy Pelosi's $1.5 trillion omnibus bill. What good are Republicans when we have Republicans doing the work of Democrats? So I want to focus on one part of this, which of course is us spending $13.6 billion to Ukraine. Now, I'm not going to get into whether or not we should send the money. I've already made my position clear on that. I'm going to ask a couple of questions about this. How about leaders thought this through? What does success look like with this sort of funding appropriation? What is an acceptable result? So a rational way of going about spending money, any person that we have here at NRB would ask the question before you spend $13.6 billion before you embark on a mission, you just have to say if it's the right or wrong thing to do, but also weigh the reality of pulling off that task. And the track record associated with the entity or the organization proposing it. So I have a question for all of our listeners that support sending money to Ukraine. Do you have trust in the CIA? Does mark milley and Lloyd Austin give you confidence? Because that's who we just funded. Does giving foreign aid to other countries give you confidence or does it give you skepticism? So just to be clear, these Republicans and a lot of people that are pushing for sending a to Ukraine. And it might be the right choice, by the way. I have said I don't believe it is. I could be corrected, but it's already
"tommy tuberville" Discussed on NPR Politics Podcast
"Politics podcast. I'm scott detro-. I covered the white house. I've ever keith. i also cover the white house. And i'm dominica montenero senior political editor and correspondent. So i mean. I think it's clear what we're going to talk about today. Suddenly the pandemic seems like it is not in the rear view mirror. The delta variant is surging particularly in places with a lot of unvaccinated people and now the centers for disease control and prevention has revised its guidance. On wearing masks the agency is now recommending that fully vaccinated people wear masks in indoor public spaces if they live in areas with significant or high spread. Tam what is going on here and there are actually a lot of areas of this country with significant or high spread. And what's happening is things have changed The delta variant is now the dominant variant in the us. It is significantly more contagious than earlier. Variants and dr rachelle wolinsky. The cdc director said that they needed to make this change in guidance. Because they have new data showing that people who are vaccinated and get a breakthrough. Infection may actually be able to transmit the corona virus which they didn't think earlier When they put out that earlier guidance it's pretty big change. yeah it is and It results in a bit of whiplash. And you know the politics of it. I think are possibly more complicated than the science of it. So this is a recommendation and i think you know one of the biggest trend lines if the last year is that these recommendations have have carried a lot less weight with people over time for a wide range of reasons burnout frustration. People feeling like they don't trust the cdc or they just never get the message to begin with What are we seeing in terms of how these recommendations are turning into new local rules that people would see in their lives about about mask-wearing. Well here in the bubble that is the white house that the signs have gone back up and masks are required indoors at the white house for white house employees but out in the real world. It's not clear exactly how this is going to be applied. You've seen California bring back mask mandates you you've seen it in some other areas but it isn't widespread and immediate and In in some states they are actively saying no you can't have a mask mandate amassed mandates or a thing of the past and we're not bringing them back. You've seen republican governors basically say. Yeah no that that time in our lives is over. Domenico this is this is obviously a huge political problem for for president biden right he. He has his put so much of his political future betting on getting the pandemic under control and back to normal and that you know big football spiking july fourth events and parties of the white house and ice cream trucks around the country from the dnc and many other things. I mean it kind of looks bad. Obviously the situation has changed. The did not know variants. We're going to search the way they had but this is a huge political problem. Well i mean they can't control the delta variant and they've seen the pattern from other parts of the world Were sort of behind what's happened in other parts of the world and they've other parts of the world have had it far worse than the united states because the united states has higher vaccination rates than most other places in the world. Still in the united states Only sixty percent of the adult. Us population has been fully vaccinated. So it does have the chance to be a potential political problem for president biden. A because this has been his strength so far you know. Six months into his presidency. He gets very high marks for his handling of the current virus. Pandemic you know and it's a little iffy on some of the other issues. If this starts to slip it's an even bigger problem for him just to be honest with both of you. I think you know this. Because i've i've a moated he about this but like this is just been a particularly tough twist to to process. I mean you feel like life is almost entirely back. You feel like this is in the rear view mirror and this comes back but at the same time i feel like it's morphed into this other incredibly depressing story that defines are political times and that is just the trench political warfare identity politics viewing every single thing in the world through the prism of politics and just to wrap up the conversation on washington in particular dominica. How is this going to play out in the house of representatives where i feel like every day. Expect another fight to break out like it did in the eighteen fifties now now there's mass mandates again in the house. I mean that's not going to go over. Well no it's not and you know that's obviously a place where we see this partisan trench warfare as you call it taking place First and foremost ever-present That happening there people calling each other names not really wanting to follow guidance and in fact not following guidance in some corners of this country is actually seen as a political plus. So when you have that it makes public health very difficult. Public health is not the kind of thing that is supposed to be political. You know unfortunately over the past year and a half it has become so and like everything else just partisan and makes it that much more difficult to get something like a pandemic over with. Yeah i was talking to an infectious diseases expert today about this mass guidance and sort of the evolution on mass guidance and he said you know they they get an a for basic science and following what the science tells them but they get an incomplete. He argued for social science. And the fact is that social science is just as important in tackling a pandemic getting people to get vaccinated getting people to do take public health measures. The social science is almost more important than the basic biology. I think the country as a whole probably is getting an f. In social science at this point people want to believe what they believe first and foremost and it makes it hard. I've a lot more thoughts about that side for now tam before we take a break though there isn't important next step to come and that's what the white house does when it comes to to the powers it has to issue mandates to federal employees among other things..

And how just inspired I was by your talk yesterday about this is not who we are, and that life must be lived. And that it's about more than just ourselves. I want to thank you for that. Very welcome. I'm glad you heard a fight. Yes, thank you. So I just wanted to mention to you about the interview that you spoke about earlier with the CDC and about the rise in cases of covert and self arda having to do with in Northern influx and my husband and I just looked at each other. Because we have eyewitness that for at least a month in South Florida. We live in Delray Beach and the downtown I I wouldn't want to say that one out of every four cars or three cars is from a northern state. So we have definitely been seeing that here for at least a month. And finally someone has said it. Well, that's an example of being on a cutting edge. See Europe the right place. You either had something you know, Valid David. Which is what happened in his case, or it could have been that you learned something you didn't know. Either service that we provide is extremely valuable. If you're wondering what this is about the Centers for Disease Control said that it's not in Florida and Texas and some southern other Southern states at Georgia. This increase in new cases is not now this is the CDC. And this place is not full of trumpets. Okay? The CDs, he said. It is not the fact that the States opened early. That's not why the massive number of new cases it's because a bunch of people from Florida Rather from the Northeast left over the Memorial Day weekend and came south and brought A virus with them. Now that is a profound admission, or you could say assertion. I mean, For the CDC to come out and say it's not because the states opened early. Or too early, And it's not because the states have been irresponsible in policy. It's because a bunch of people who have been infected and it's not there. They're sick now, but they tested positive. They've brought it with them. As they have come down over the Memorial day week. The vacation. I just found it was a stunning admission for the CDC to make Because the media and the Democrats are trying to blame the Santis. And camp governor in Georgia and Greg Abbott, the governor in Texas, trying to blame all these guys for irresponsibly opening the state's early to get their economies going and has not at all What had what had happened.

This country's in trouble. That's the reason I'm running. Now. I want to be a part of what's going to happen in the next few years. We get President Trump reelected.

And here it is. This is Probably the best two minute example of what this appearance yesterday, Wass Biden in President Obama freely allowed China to pillage our factories. Plunder our communities and steal our most precious secrets. Biden's entire career has been a gift to the Chinese Communist Party. Biden supported China's entry into the World Trade Organization, one of the greatest geopolitical and economic disasters in world history. Biden was a leading advocate of the Paris climate accord, which was unbelievably expensive to our country. Would have crushed American manufacturers. America lost nearly 10,000 factories.

"It's morning PR news. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm no well King. Good morning, Jeff Sessions is out of the Alabama Senate race. Former football coach Tommy Tub Orville beat him in a runoff race. That means Tuberville will challenge Democrat Doug Jones in the fall, and it may be the Republican Party's best chance to take a Senate seat. NPR's Debbie Elliot has been covering the race. Good morning, Debbie. Good morning sessions used to be pretty popular in Alabama, but it looks like this will be not just the loss, but a pretty substantial one. What happened? Right more than double digits, reflecting what the Poles had indicated was goingto happen Throughout much of the campaign, you know, Tommy Taber Ville was really able to capitalize on President Trump's endorsement. Making his allegiance to trump his number one selling point. He promised that unlike Jeff Sessions, he won't let the president down when the going gets tough, you know session struggled to overcome being ousted his attorney general after he recused himself from special Prosecutor Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. Something that Trump went to great lengths to berate sessions for time and time again. He even made this robo call the night before the election in support of Tuberville. He's gonna have a cold direct line into my office that I couldn't tell you because, you know, we had the Jeff Sessions thing. We gave it a shot. I had no idea it could be as bad as it was, but he had no clue. No love lost between Trump and sessions. That's a parent sessions, though, did hold that Senate seat for 20 years before he joined the Trump administration. What's he saying this morning or last night? Right. He was certainly a fixture in Alabama politics. He was a former attorney general of the state had been a U. S attorney in Mobile. He made a somber speech from the Hampton Inn in Mobile last night. Hey 73 years old now and said he ends his political career with no regrets and his integrity intact. I was honored to serve the people of Alabama in the Senate, and I was extraordinarily proud of the accomplished that accomplishments we had as attorney general. On recusal followed the law. I did the right thing, and I say the president's bacon in the process saving his bacon, meaning he maintains that he if he had done anything to somehow squash the investigation, things would have turned out much worse, but he didn't take that tone against the president until pretty late in the campaign. Andi. I think that hurt him. He he largely ran a campaign up until the very end based on his alignment with Trump's agenda, making the case that he was all about tougher immigration laws and some of the same issues that Trump pushes long before. Trump even got into politics. Tommy Tub Orville the winner. He does not have a long history in politics. What do we know about him? Right? He is new to this game, but he generally gets the celebrity treatment anywhere. He goes in Alabama. He is the former football coach at Auburn University. Early in his coaching career. He earned this nickname the riverboat gambler for Risky play calling, But he took very few risks in this runoff campaign, especially after the vote got pushed from March until yesterday because of the Corona virus pandemic. Taber Bill had refused to debate he largely avoided the media. His ads would hit these familiar themes that resonate with conservative Republican voters here in Alabama religious freedom, border security law and order gun rights. Andi came back to those issues and his victory speech last night from Montgomery as he turned his attention to his next opponent, the Democratic incumbent, Doug Jones. And Doug Jones, Alabama. The Second Amendment is a dream. It's just a thought. It's not in the Constitution of them By God, They're not taking our guns just a little for shattering of what's to come in Miss Alabama Senate Rice, It's going to pull a lot of attention and probably a lot of money from both national parties.

"NPR news in Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly. Today's the deadline for Americans to file their federal income tax returns with the IRS rests. NPR's Scott Horsefly says this year's April deadline was pushed back three months because of the Corona virus. The extension did create some challenges for the federal government. Some of the money that would ordinarily come into the government's coffers back in April isn't coming in until now. And this, of course, at a time when the government is spending a ton of money trying to prop up the economy, Congress has passed a number of Corona virus aid packages this year as the pandemic trigger double digit unemployment in the US Relief has included direct payments to individuals and families and expanded jobless benefits. Senate Republicans are expected to begin rolling out details of another Corona virus aid bill next week. Political newcomer Tommy Tub, Orville is celebrating a win and Alabama's Republican Senate primary runoff. NPR's Debbie Elliot says the ex Auburn University football coach defeated former Attorney General Jeff Sessions who was seeking to reclaim his Senate seat.

We're on the border of going to read It is up to all of us to make sure that we don't That was Garcetti speaking Monday night, the red level means people would only be able to leave their homes for essential things like buying groceries, traveling toe work or seeing a doctor. Orange merely recommends that people stay at home as much as possible. Like county public health director Barbara for rare says a rollback may be necessary as infections and hospitalizations reach worrisome levels. No this step back in our recovery journey is disheartening. But we must do everything in our power to stop the virus from spreading Right now, everything is pointing towards an alarming trend. Health officials also provided an update on the pandemics shifting demographics. In L. A county. 59% of new cases involve people under age 41. Median age is 35. Earlier this week, Governor Gavin Newsom moved to roll back the state's re opening. He ordered bars too close and restaurants told indoor dining statewide and in counties like Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside, where the spread of the virus has been especially high churches, gyms and hair salons also had to shut down. A new poll finds California's perceptions of race relations have changed significantly since the start of the pandemic and the current racial justice movement, among other shifts, White Californians are now much more likely to acknowledge systemic racism. Case, or W Darryl Saltzman fills us in this latest California community Pole follows up on a survey from February, offering a snapshot of attitudes before and after the pandemic and the protest that followed the killing of George Floyd. 54% of respondents now say relations between people of different races and ethnicities are fair or poor. That's up 13 point since February. Those who believe race relations are good or excellent, declined 13%. Most Californians, though, say protests over police brutality have done more to bring people together than drive them apart. The poll also found the White Californians are much more likely to say that black residents experience frequent discrimination. That number is 40% nearly double February's result. But it's still far less than the 67% of black residents who say.

Normally. Yes, these conventions look like you know, the Wall Street trading for their so crammed excited. You know, this is gonna be a crazy crazy time, but Either way. There will be an announcement as to who the nominee is, and they'll have their troops around him, and you know all of that pomp circumstance, But it's going to come off like a firecracker instead of a big or the July celebration.

"Well I'm against taxes and you know we're in a tough tough situation right now. President trump is trying to keep the thirty million small businesses. Going as we speak. Because they're you know you know our economies we're we're we're stance and people are going to go out of business every day but he's trying to get them money. The problem I have is. Let's go back to the beginning of this. We should have a rainy day fund. Our Congress should have a rainy day fund for something like this because we paid trillion dollars in taxes a year but they spend every time we send them plus more every year. We're we're sort before this started. We were twenty two trine in debt. Now we're going to be closer. Twenty five twenty six tree and hopefully when we get out of this in terms of getting it. Oh with but it's a shame that we got a group of people that we send to Washington. Dc that all they go up there to do is keep a job. They want to get reelected. And they don't make the tough decisions if we don't say we don't go to term limits is we don't get term limits in this country where we people that go up there and vote for the right reasons and not further. Mike Bank accounts and not for their notoriety. And we're going. We're not going to lash. We'RE NOT GONNA make us so We the people of this state and the people of this country have got to start standing up and say enough enough we. We won't term limits. We want new faces new ideas up there every few years that way you can. You'RE GONNA lose some good ones but you're GONNA lose some bad ones too and there's some some up there right now that out wish that that they'd run out of their time limit because some of them up to forty fifty years which is absolutely ridiculous. Ridiculous well Bernie Sanders food issues him as an example all he's ever done he's never had a real job all he's ever done is work for the government and he those term limits would stop people that are just pulling off the back of the American worker from from making their self a career politician. I agree with you wholeheartedly. We need term limits because we need honest people in Washington to fix these problems. You're not going to do this through people who are taking back door deals. And that's been that's been proven true and the Democrats including Doug. Jones have shown their true colours in this whole process of shutting down our country. Winning people back to work. We need real leadership in Washington in Costa You're the man that Like I said I feel like we can. We can trust in. We can put our confidence in because of the integrity you show at the end of the day core values your Christian core values are GonNa make you do the right thing because like you say it. We're going to be held accountable to what we do. one other topic that. I wanted us to discuss today. And then I'll give you some time to just give everybody information is immigration and President. Trump is put hold on a sixty day. Temporary hold on immigration. Tell me where you stand on our immigration policies and our border and what you would like to see our country move forward to. I've been to the border. Probably doesn't half a dozen times my life? I've got friends at work at the border. I got friends at work in hospitals at the border. It's a shame what we've done there to the American people. We allow people to cross that border number one. We don't know who's in this country yet. Thank God remember now. This country is so much better than everybody else's because of the hard work in middle-class American Christian people we got behaves and so we built this country sound and strong to some degree. The problem is everybody else is on fire all of the world. They WANNA come here. They want to come here. Legally or illegally mostly right now is illegally. We can't let people come here and not know who's here. We need people to come. We need people come here legally and earn citizenship. The right way. They're taking money from the people of this state in this country in terms of jobs they undercut and we got a lot of people that that are struggling because illegals are coming. They're taking their jobs. So we've got have a border wall. We've got to have a better immigration policy. President trump moved up to number one. When he was became president number two was tariffs but number one. He knew that we had to control our borders. Before we make this country stronger. And I'm all for him coach Tocqueville.
