Van You were born in nineteen sixty eight in Jackson Tennessee with your twin sister. Angela your parents were both in education, your Mama, High School Teacher, Your Dad Middle, school principal you were raised in the Christian Methodist Episcopal church where your grandfather was a church leader. What was your childhood like and what were you like as a kid as a nerd? Like everyone who's ever been on this show exactly no, I made urkel the cool. Air Cal. Cal. Exactly I. Know? NERDY guide. Super Skinny glasses picked on all the time call professor and you know all that kind of stuff you know. You do that. And do your best and you learn and you grow and I think for me what was so important about growing up that way I got a great deal of empathy for outsiders empathy for people who've been left out. While said. I know you had an early fascination with political figures and even matched political figures with your star wars action figures. So you would match your action figures to JFK or Mlk. Who was who as far as the characters and the leaders, and then how did this early fascination with with politics come about You know I I don't have an origin story for that. You know a lot of people like, Oh, you know this happened I got an interested in for whatever reason just like. Some kids who? just take to certain things. You know they take to basketball, they take to the flute they take the piano I took the political stuff. I don't know why remember being in kindergarten and Miss Pat Miss Brown was my kindergarten teacher. Does a student named Patrick Carmody who asked who is Bobby Kennedy, or who was Bobby Kennedy and? You know he had. He died the euro was born. So you're talking about a situation where the the the kindergarten teacher is kind of caught off guard. By the question I. Guess You can imagine if like Barack Obama had been killed and then like a few years later childs asking who's Barack Obama who's Bobby Kennedy and she started crying and I had never seen in an adult cry In fact, you know they always tell us to stop crimes is kind of thought that adults couldn't cry and the only kids cry and so seeing an adult cry I mean that left. A big impact on me I always interested. We had a little weekly readers the kind of crappy like nasty newsprint. You Know Little Inc would come off in your hands and whenever there's anything about the Kennedys or Dr King I would just get my little round scissors and cut the article out and take it home and you know I don't know salvage. There's no origin story I've always been interested in politics in God That was very prayerful. Little Kid very bookish little kid and whatever reason cared a lot about about politics. We're only a few minutes into this and I've already gotten shows twice so This is good. You went to the University of Tennessee at Martin and earned a bachelor's degree in communications and political science. You later attended Yale Law School where you interned at the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights in San Francisco through which you served as a legal observer in the Rodney King Trial and demonstrations you protested against the verdict that acquitted the officers of beating Rodney King, and you were arrested for protesting.

William Turner Interview, horse training for the Triple Crown
"Another guy who knows a thing or two about training a good horses trainer Billy Turner. I told you today is his eightieth birthday. The man who conditions Seattle slew to win the triple crown in nineteen seventy seven. Yeah he was born on leap day he is a leap. Ling and eightieth birthday today. He's with me now for a few minutes here on H. R. BILLY. Thanks for taking a little time and happy birthday my friend. Well thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here. I pointed out the a few minutes ago that if you're born on a leap day you celebrate a birthday every four years. Are you really eighty? Yes this is my. I never dreamed it possible because All my peers. And and so forth. And Sean have all passed away. Well thankfully you are still here with us in. You're able to join me here for a few minutes this morning. Yeah how are you gonNA celebrate your eightieth birthday billy Very very Very quietly and you know when you get to my age you don't you don't advertise your speech thankful for what you you're here billy when I say the name Seattle slew. What are some of the first things that pop into your head well just just a phenomenal athletes phenomenal Al Animal Very intelligent and Phenomenal speed and he could and there was just no quitting and yeah he was ultra tough. You know we talk about horses today. Billy some people say well you have to train them differently than you did. Back in the seventies and the sixties and the fifties and there are different types of horses but look we've seen two triple crown winners in recent years ending a long drought How how do you? How do you get a horse? Ready for the triple Crown Billy. What's what's the key. Well the thing is I was scorch obvious enough to be surrounded by some of the greatest a couple of the grave. Well couple of number of the greatest trainers of of our times and one was sunny. Jim Fitzsimmons in the learning. But Assad Ben Jones and Van Jones as you know we changed for Kalua met and five Derby winners and two triple crown. We're at all that kind of stuff and and the same with the FITZSIMMONS and One thing that That a pointed out to me quietly on the side is Then Jones exercise boys role hundred and sixty pounds or more and I yeah that's a that's a lot and he said They said well. You said you know you You don't You you you You don't doubt the hell out of him every day but you sit on them for an hour and that's one thing both Fitzsimmons in Jones. They would the horse would go out and be ridden for an hour. That is not done today. At all and What that does is it. Just get some strong without putting any undue stress on their on their legs and so forth but it gets their back strong and the the It's the back that vic collapses when the Horse Starts Tiring and it kind of collapses enough so then that puts all the pressure on the ligaments and then you start getting bowed tendons and all that kind of stuff. Well you avoid all that if you have a horse. Well conditioned and taking them out and Galvin and two miles is a waste of time Just things like that and Fitzsimmons said. Never give him a day off. Never get well. He said if they're sick or something like that but but never given the day off and Maybe if you're getting a horse ready for the triple crown and Those are those things are are But that doesn't mean you got the hell out of them everyday document trainer Billy Turner here on the Horse Racing Radio Network celebrating his eightieth birthday on this leap day here on February twenty-ninth Billy when you sit there today on your birthday and you think back on your career in all the success that you've had obviously Seattle slew is always going to hold a special place but is there another moment or two that. Come to mind that when you think back on your career that for whatever reason you're never gonNA forget well They probably right after she had US knew. I had a horse called Czarevich who is One of the first news agencies to Race on dirt in this country and And He was a. He was a very very tough for us to To to to handle because he he walked to the racetrack on his hind legs. Just like command and I I thought well I don't know anything about the case but I'll I'll just let him do that and He turned out to be a good horse. You only ran three thirteen times but he he won eight and he was second in the others. So there you go billy. I remember a few years ago when I was Belmont. Cover one of the triple crown. Say I guess maybe it was even American Feroz Year. You were kind enough to spend a little time with me in the radio booth and sit down for an interview and I told everybody you won't find a nicer person in horse racing than Billy Turner and you're kind enough to spend a little time with me here this morning too so I appreciate that and it was great to hear your voice and happy eightieth birthday.

The state of play in New Hampshire and beyond
"Democrats rather have a catastrophic week they began on Monday when the democratic Iowa caucuses turned into a display of shocking incompetence Democrats unlock I stay were unable to tell America who won and who came in second the only certainty was about who is the real loser that was Joe Biden who finished fourth now polls show Bernie Sanders with a comfortable lead in New Hampshire the next day tomorrow coming up next week I am sure it means that Democrats are beginning to panic Bernie Sanders is believed by many of them to be electable party veterans all used to liberal and center left candidates are now beginning to speak out against the socialist Democrat Bernie Sanders by Tuesday evening some Iowa numbers at chuckled and there was a leader but no winner Biden I repeat puts forth with impeachment still technically undecided on Tuesday night Donald Trump entered the house chamber to give his state of the union address the state of our union is stronger than ever before impeachment never came up but what the president did say appealed to the majority of Americans a healthy majority of Americans of all much of what he said will be remembered by those who pay close attention it was Nancy Pelosi who stole the show with a petulant act following trump's words of god bless you and god bless America thank you very much hearing those words a speaker of the house rose tore up the signed print a copy of the speech the president just delivered as she stood out of my sight mine the president but for all of America to see she did it for all the world to see that it was not a good look for the leader of the Democratic Party the morning after the speech I discuss not Nancy moment and much more with Georgia senator David Perdue senator I thought it was historic state of the union speech last night I thought it was historic tantrum by a petulant speaker pelo three what did you think about last night but Dr yeah I agree with you you're a student of history but I I T. I think last night was a historic speech it built on the the successes of his first three years in late at a farm plan for a vision for America the last five minutes that speech I think we're really his story but the Democrats such as close to the Democrats showed exactly why they should be in charge I mean how Petula can you be to not stand up for a child and in grammar school was gonna get a choice to go to school and how about the Tuskegee American hero they would even stand for him it was really insulting for America it was astonishing in many respects the touching Mrs you it does not like long speeches she'd never watched either George W. bush a president Obama but she's military kid so she came in to stand up for the general and for the for military families and for the widow and the son of the lost soldier I could not believe I actually cannot believe senator produ the Nancy Pelosi tore up a speech that honor to Tuskegee airmen and all those other heroes well it just shows their their don't care about the future American I want power and we see it and everything this purely partisan political process I just ran in this impeachment process speech tons about that they don't want the truth they just want power and Schumer talk about it all the time you talk about on your show I mean what they want to do with America is taken and regressed back to what has been proven to fail around the world of the last century really I got to play for you a few quotes about what was said last night this is Chris Matthews on MSNBC Democrat cut forty three Chris Matthews I think he wore I came from the like the speech tonight I think regular people well not with us see the Smalls the corny this still see it but don't like it because it's all good stuff whatever purpose it had and I look at something about I watched closely because I really respect like most Mister I was very the way she held me to win the stand when to apply it was almost a normal almost entirely the tributes to people to individual people she always felt that was the right thing to do especially the one quite out I'm right there one why don't this is van Jones on CNN another hard left person cut number forty four and and the thing about it is and I think that we we got to wake up folks do the whole bubble thing that goes on with the will he said **** nations there for all but you will get him forever that ain't necessarily so and I think what you're gonna see him do is say I you like my rhetoric the look at my results look at my record to black people now this is Jake tapper on CNN cut forty five okay we've never really seen a scholarship given which is what the president did with the with the young girl from Philadelphia we've seen the type of thing where a war hero like the Tuskegee airmen brigadier general McGee we seen that honored and it was a lovely moment to have a one hundred year old does he here's Chris Cuomo on CNN four wheeling poignant moments that came I don't know if you saw them but you should go online and look and I'm gonna talk to you about it more later on the president in that speech tonight celebrated with this country is about from one set of moments are finally Claire McCaskill on your former colleague senator produ on MSNBC cut number fifty of course the flow state tearing up the street I can argue that that maybe wasn't the best idea it you know I think America once everyone to get along and get things done but what you know when I can play a montage of left left left left left and they're all applauding the president you know we had a home run senator produ I'm shocked I mean I really am but what he did was historic I say it again I mean he did mention impeachment once he rose above that he showed great disappoint he showed vision for America but here's the difference American people we built America because everybody out there in the real world view like you and others know how to get results the political partisanship here is not focused on results and president trump is trying to break through that that's why I think he's going to do extremely well this fall at Lana is the home of some great talk radio Neal Bortz had many disagreements over the years but he's a friend we visited with President Bush in the oval one time is phone went off one of the funniest moments I've ever seen a withering look from the president at Neil Sean Hannity had a lot of great years in Atlanta you know Rush Limbaugh personally I say he built the mall in which the rest of us live in I hope you stood in a plot in one rush got that last night I couldn't see last night but it was moving it was emotional every family in America that struggles with cancer saluted him what did you think of that moment well I had dinner with him a few weeks ago in Florida and I was in what would this be to that was a total surprise last night to me I think that homeowners a great American hero he did go out first and blaze a trail to tell the truth and that's what you and many others are doing now and that's what's gonna win today just look at the numbers of conservative talk radio out there and their numbers are going up in the liberal left numbers are going down so I mean I think the middle part of America is leading and showing how California New York Illinois have totally failed their governance and now they want to export that to the federal government I think most people in America see what trump is doing and they certainly recognizes result this present you said on the top he's done more for the Arab American community and in America any other president since Lincoln I think Britt slough editor of the National Review discuss the state of the union while on Chicago's morning answer with Salem stand problem Amy Jacobson that will settle somewhere then people are safe and she's the woman of the hour and she just couldn't find any truth than from say the union address that's why if you threw a tantrum yeah well the whole thing about Nancy Pelosi she's popular supposedly this calm cool calculating presence to his genius is getting under trump skin and she showed her deep irritation last night does incredibly test headed yesterday I think trump said of shook her hand at the beginning I like grace notes but they're ripping up the the speech yeah he should have known this moment was gonna come when she started to impeach shop in the first place that eventually he'd be acquitted or be near quit all and he'd be this majestic setting and she'd have to sit by back there like a prop and behave herself and she and she couldn't handle it they were routine they were rooting against America I mean when they talked about alone unemployment numbers for African Americans and minorities why not stand up and clap for that because they they can't abide anything this president says even when it's things that normally everyone would welcome and that's one thing I think it's it's really notable about the speech the ratio of outrage it caused among the opposition you know on Twitter on cable TV and in the hall and the way most people receive it I think it's a vast you know because I'm sitting there is conservative once the limit limit government event basketball on those sort of things there's almost nothing for me is a very center of speech right planting trees going to Mars you know the research to support extremely premature babies and that was a really moving moment I'm among many from the gallery and so most people that the second strike in this on reasonable as striking as entirely reasonable or welcome so they can deal why did the speaker house can happen rip up the speech this is what we have one listener described trump this way after the St unit rasta Nancy pollicis little snack and I thought this was pretty good he he's like human so the impact the fall he he brings out in people who they truly are in sort of a remarkable way they can't even help themselves and as you're describing Nancy Pelosi this cool calm collected this passionate you know Jeff feel general and but then he throws a temper tantrum and then she doubles down on explaining the temper tantrum in a way that portrayed her as venal and petty in about her where you just said the president give a speech about you in this country and its future and that's not a pretty good contra that's not a very good contrast for the Democrats yeah and it just when when people try and think they're reacting to trump intro and a champion way
Reactions to Trump's impeachment acquittal
"To get it in I mentioned earlier in the show that the the the whole thing with there were so many people in December during the the house during the actual impeachment proceedings that were celebrating on social media believing you know the willfully ignorant believing that impeachment means removal and then you you look at I guess the last couple weeks there've been a few that I've seen it's over for him he'll be he's done and it went from he'll resign by the end of the week to well he's definitely not going to win in November and you and I don't make predictions but you look where the strings are right now with this president you look at what Chris Matthews has said not just about what happened not just about the state of the union or anything else and then van Jones banjo that on that at the last debate and and what he said he didn't see anybody on the stage that night they could be tribe and on yesterday talking about look Democrats have to understand trump is going after the black vote and he may be able to get a significant portion of it I mean you you look at that and the Rasmussen had on in terms of black votes forty two percent and we said okay fine cut that in half favorability rating yet favorability rating of forty two percent cut that in half let's say it's twenty one that's massive I don't remember Republican I'd have to go back and and look at the last Republican that had that kind of support but it it's it's like they're still some that are in denial over what the left has got it I wonder if it's who was it that said her friends during twenty sixteen with just a draw the curtains in and close the doors and turn the TV TV are in doubt burned out yes if there was any negative news about Hillary that would just bury their heads in the sand but it's just on many fronts I'm just talking about the chatter on social media it's very quiet right now by the far left look they hate to guide the make fun of the guy they must they mocked the guy but I don't see them promoting their their some for Bernie there did the burning crowd was there but really I mean there's not the porch there was in twenty sixteen there's not the I don't I just don't see it it it's maybe it comes together but it's not happening right now well one thing that we monitored on the show over the last five months is the number of responses that we got especially after the cross after the house impeachment hearings were done in the articles of impeachment were actually written so the cross examination was done we had Democrats that would speculate in September and in October and November and cut well with that you guys are wrong they're gonna get him today and it never happened in fact the opposite happened when the witnesses came forward in the house but once that was completed our I believe we have had only for phone calls mmhm and that would be since thanksgiving of anybody attempting to defend the the Democrat point I believe three out of those four phone calls because you wanted a moderate because we we were saying to ourselves this is really incredible because we know what the Democrats think that they have a point mmhm and we find it incredible three out of those four we're only saying the only point they had was a talking point well of trump was innocent he let everybody testify which is again the philosophy that you are guilty until proven innocent right that it's it's upon the defense the burden of proof is on the defense not the prosecutor not those making the charges which is false and we had so we had one phone call on the issues and and that fell back real quick I can't remember what point they were trying to make that they made the point and we countered whatever the point was they weren't there was like silence so I'm not you don't anoint there but that's it and that's why we have with confidence said every single Democrat listening right now to the show knows that the impeachment and the impeachment trial was bogus they don't know the articles of impeachment were bogus they all know what every single Democrat senator knows that their vote was bogus they know what was purely political it was not in line with what the constitution has said impeachment should be about they know what you know Eric if you were talking about the fact that Mitt Romney should debate Alan Dershowitz and that we would laugh because it's never gonna have not gonna happen it's the same as climate change yes you had the one thing tank last year attempt to have a debate on climate change they brought in experts and said you know the scientist climatologist that said now look they're throwing on Tuesdays doomsday scenarios and that just isn't the case it's wrong they invited dozens of climate change activists to debate it nobody would show up nobody under cross examination the left does not want to defend what they believe in no no they don't and that's why with confidence we have said we know what we've done this a long time run hundreds and hundreds of the greatest radio stations across the country we know if we make a mistake on something as simple as when we kid about a Hogan's heroes that was the first time member we said about old in zero right or or what we were kidding them bad when we first got together well when we were first in back in two thousand five wasn't while when we started doing the show together and we Kinley said you know use the term the you of the line from animal house word was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor and we were just inundated with people the people on the left you guys secure your your you guys are just wanna be's you're even know who bombed Pearl Harbor we know it was the French exactly so it is so believe me we know we've dealt with that when if we make any type of of mistake you know read something you know but we we get something and we read it and we you know get the number wrong for certain you know if we say trillion instead of billion boom they're they're cheap you guys are no credible you got that wrong saria yeah we did done did mean it because the last thing we want to do is argue something that's not true right we don't need to do that they need to do that and so we know that every single Democrat listening right now knows that the impeachment was bogus they all do yes every single Democrat senator knows it was bogus anybody in the media the paid attention to it knows it was bogus the majority like I said when of response you know email whatever we get if somebody is trying to make the case are actually ignorant on the law ignorant on impeachment or ignorant as to what actually happened I think one of the the one call was talking about the fact that although the witnesses are all testified against trump was no they did no just the opposite no and I've used here is or when the opposite right so you know we know even your Bonaventure when in cross examination I came down what she didn't like the guy yeah she was she was upset that she was fired and and we get to Romney and the discussion on Romney and your work and I were just having a during the top of the hour and you're trying to make the point look he knows it's not constitutional and I agree with you I got you this is this is where you try to get well what's the motivation behind it you just tear down the the what's more what's more what would lead what would be left on the table if you if the knowns take those off the table what's left we know that he knows the constitution we know that right we know that he does this whole thing was bogus we know that so it was about one thing his hatred for the president it's that simple his trolling it's the equivalent of trolling because tell me where the risk is in Utah I'm convinced he's not gonna run for a second term I maybe maybe I'm wrong I believe he's one and done as senator from Utah but tell me where where does that red put everything on the on the table and what's most likely he just has a huge dislike or hatred for this president because he had a story here even as arguments fell apart we claim the trump had withheld vital military funds that you didn't withhold he didn't know what hit them but we didn't eight here's a quote Corp corrupting election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and destructive violation of the oath of office that I can imagine what one well there was no election it was corrupted in no way no national security interest the Wall Street journal here if their analysis no security interests were jeopardized because other senators and advisers persuaded Mr trump to release a military aid all even challenge out from the Wall Street journal I don't know that for a fact no no and now here's the other theory that I that I didn't include go high I know that there were people encouraging him senator Johnson or whatever yes I know this is necessary right but I don't know that that's why he made the ultimate decision I don't know that I don't have the testimony that gets me to that point precisely that I would need though the one theory that I have not put on the table is is maybe the the most obvious that we missed Mitt Romney is a robot what what Linda Hamilton from terminator two you know I believe it and you had that for a long time he has and it because it's true can I get sued for that please sumi Mitt Romney go ahead well and here's what happened I think Adam Schiff reprogrammed his his his explanation was so weak console falls yeah so easy to tear through yeah that you sit there and you say well it can't be it meant more read more Mitt Romney is smarter than this mmhm he was always he was re program right he knows that's not that he's no that's not the truth so you get to the point if it wasn't constitutional and it wasn't legal what drove him to do that exactly is this like for his residence like what do you want to make college dislike hatred ever to whatever I you know I again I can't get in somebody's mind but when you break it down and say but every argument in cross examination of Mitt Romney's explanation you can tear to shreds yeah so then what was it afterwards and so when people come to that conclusion I can understand them coming to the conclusion one thing I can tell you without question without getting into his mind he is wrong constitutionally yes and he's wrong on the facts that he actually stated on the Senate floor as to what happened he was inaccurate in his analysis when when you set aside your critical thinking skills and your knowledge of the constitution and put it behind your distrust your dislike or your hatred I don't know how I don't know how to do that I don't I don't know what drives you to do that because you can see he could still go back to his home state and say look I didn't I think that was not the right call to make I would have done it but it did not rise to impeachment it did not rise to to removal when you start talking about the fact that by the way that he was grappling over it you know that this was this was such a tough decision on I had to make the right decision for my kids when you start talking like that you know you're trying to justify your vote yes I wouldn't have to say that no I would have to bring in my family or anything nope it was easy right what I mean it was tough either he did it a read either he did something that was impeachable or not stand up and be a man don't sit there in a book because my my family and it was tough stock toss what are you teaching your family about the constitution right and where and when he started doing that I said wow he's tried to justify his vote yes because he knows it's bogus yes

call them why do you feel like the who gave you that calling i had to see somebody i remember being a child and and i will always want to go in the backyard night and lie down on my back and look up at the stars like i said we didn't have streetlights larry every star and i be out there in a mom would see our opening a glass door the back door and she'd be anthony anthony anthony get in this house and say i'm praying mama branch because you can pray in your big house but there was just something i spell and i was probably like six seven i just felt the presence of god i felt that that was something i was supposed to do i i felt when i remember when i was a child they would they would show us a bobby kennedy and dr king and these guys and you forget like now they've been there for so long it's like like not that big of a deal but if you're born in sixty eight that's a year they were killed so when you're in kindergarten that's just five years ago now imagine somebody killed obama llama right now a child that was born that year five years later they've never they don't know so i remember this kidney patrick carmody and my kindergarten class asked my teacher jim is brown who was bobby kennedy she started crying like a baby and i never seen adult cry i didn't even really know the dealt could cry because they were used up crying so as i wo- and i asked my mom and she was stumbling around and words and stuff and i just felt again that those guys died the year i was born bobby kennedy was trying to do something positive positive for some reason it felt like i was supposed to take their but it's not rational because other kids heard the same thing same thing didn't they didn't do what i would do so all i can say is that my whole life i never had to guess what i was gonna do you always knew i was going to work for justice help people right and fight that was the two things i wanted to do i was too nerdy to fight but but in my mind i was preparing so there's a calling on my life i feel almost now like i said i have nothing left to prove i i've already gotten four presents in a role to do something positive that i believe that and the world is a shambles and

you feel about the more act marijuana opportunity reinvestment investment in expunged acting of twenty nineteen with them all look i'm a nerd i've never had a beer of never smoked a smoke marijuana what i've never interesting guy guys like i couldn't imagine living without their never had a simpler champagne never had a wind i never know so i can say as a complete nerd anti-drug nerd that i'm against the drug war because it doesn't work and you never been prosecuted like the more drugs at a country club yacht club ivy league school ask me how oh i know i know i've been all those places way more drugs in those contexts than in that on a street corner and the hood so now that they're making illegal marijuana i wanna every single person who is convicted of that it should just be wiped off the record and all the money coming in the tax money should be going back to those communities he's back to those individuals and helping them get on their feet and otherwise it's just another situation where black people created a market why people come and exploit it when we did it it was illegal they do it now it's legal and we did we did street the cops came and shut us down now the cops come to stop the people from freaking understood from still at it yeah i mean i've seen i've seen in my whole life you know i gotta get to work with prince i did all of his philanthropic work for about six years tat right yeah so he's a very interesting very interesting i am he saved my life man because you know when i worked for obama only worked there for about six months and then the right wing media came after me because i was a young militant and stuff and they're bringing back all the stuff from when i was younger it also making up stuff stuff you a young well did you do to make them think you're out of the marxist i was in a sweatshop so protesting doesn't everything i could i was every ist i could find that was against the system nationalist marxist anarchist any est because i was pissed off i was like man if you're in your early twenties i mean i mean i mean we in the eighty s when public enemy and spike lee and NWF came out so they put it in our mind that we need to stand up for ourselves then we get into the nineties we finally get rid of reagan and bush we got clinton and clinton's worst dropping all these terrible beal bills against us and he has a brainwashed she had planned has more black people brainwashed -lica- man true yeah mine is well all the whole sick click all of them look i appreciate appreciate it bill clinton more after he was president when he was doing he does get credit for afterwards he when he was doing the clinton global initiative and raising millions of dollars and helping people around the world but when he was president he was weak on affirmative action week on welfare week on anything black week on criminal justice and so i was mad and i was i felt like my parents lied to me dad had been military and you know living justice for all and all this type of stuff and i i'm at this law school and i can't and can look down this street to the university and see kids buck wild who are going to be senators and i can look down this street in new haven to housing project and kids who are doing less bad stuff going to be in prison i don't say it's my dad li- jimmy this whole systems light to me so i was as i was on the left side of pluto i i was i was considered a left wing radical didn't lie to you he was just told you information he was fed right exactly these just passing a law but you know so when i was in so as i was considered a left wing radical in the bay area you have to work hard to be considered left wing radical in san francisco berkeley and oakland but that's what i yeah but that's where that came from i was in all of that in my twenties thirties burned out because it was just too many protests too many too how many funerals with community kids and i work with her work here about in caskets and grown people with gray hair sitting in the pews he's like the opposite how it's supposed to be and we're just banging their heads against the wall and i couldn't see how we could make a difference so i burned out and i decided to try and do something more positive for the community community bringing jobs and we just pass all of these solar bills and stuff in california so i'll say why don't we get these kids on the street corner jobs putting up the solar panels solar solar panels on put themselves up and people ordering all these solar panels and they'd taken three months six months nine months because nobody knows how to put him up so i got the city of oakland to start a program called the green jobs corps to train these kids to put up solar panels nancy pelosi found out about it she just become speaker of the house of first time she said bring van jones washington DC nobody has a local activist to talk to all of my democratic congress members about this idea george w bush then signs a a bill called the green jobs act to spread my little program oaken all across the country that's two thousand seven two thousand eight i wrote a book about the book became a bestseller people on barack rock obama's team read the book two thousand i'm in the white house so i go from being a frontline grassroots activists in a two year period to being in the white house so so the when the right wing media could just do mr f the police mr suen cops mr zito down with the system is now in the white house this is not gonna work so then so i said so prince saved my life because my left the obama white house he picked me up how do you perceive that you see that often your hard work you think that because you work hard anything no i know what you think do you think he would grind and working on it felt like i like all of a sudden i was like walking down the street and i put my breath foot down on what i thought was the ashfall and it was like a magic carpet and it just took off and all of a sudden i'm in places i've never been i'm seeing people would never thought i would meet i don't know i know this is not even the fifties now way wow that's your that's your mission figure all this stuff y should going on not gonna stop get out i'm i'm thinking to it i'm thinking if i came in here for years ago they decided the big issue to the fucking jail come we'll be back then so we get a gift that's what the sean sean and that does sound jewish to me i'm sure he's talking about the tone venom and stuff what are you talking about you can't do what kinda shit you talk about you can't go

i don't know i don't know anything what do you know less than i thought the i mean i know everybody's trying to figure out the war what's the key what's the magic key and somebody told me for black people fit the answer is so so simple but for black people have to be complicated have to be real complex to be the answer if it's right in front of you can't be the answer the after everything's really so easy leads because it's so easy can never figure it out so intellectual have to be from a pack and to let uh-huh that we can't pin nici man i i'm glad i'm glad glad to meet you guys i mean i think you're doing something would you rate them i wrote down bipartisan because i want to make sure to underscore that republicans are doing doing some good things i feel like you know the so polarized that you know we we don't want to give the other side credit when they're right when they're wrong and listen to this is we don't agree about rum and that's democracy you will you disagree you're supposed to fight democracy you're not supposed to agree dictatorship you have to agree democracy means you can have your opinion you can have yours you can have yours but when we disagree we're supposed to fight where we do agree we're supposed to work together and we stopped doing that it's always wherever my point that out and then i wrote down my son just want to make sure to give him some credit again anybody work with a dictator i don't think official ever be a dictator as you think i should be illegal agree no one should be a dictator in our country it is illegal but still we have while still listen napoleon pulling fed this to his mother they're always became even if they go by different names and that's what it is trump is running this country like king and that's just what it he feels like a king and people treat them like a king though he lives like a king and people love it 'cause everybody wants to be a king thick mine you know anybody think the king the own world believe it or not i mean even my wife the both of my belief in king i believe on the king title a great quote by napoleon then what do you see i mean i know criminal justice reform is going to be huge in this coming election i have a real problem with you tell me you know better than me but why why is joe biden still up there on hundred they gotta go trump that's a definite because these don't against trump nope listening he could start far in and still go against trump could that's where this is going to be one of the face off against trump the democratic party just just wait loses my face isn't that one time that's the guy's face trump i don't know if it's not it's i know the establishment really wanted to be biting and i and establishment yeah fuck this guy sorry well first of all from a criminal justice perspective wasn't he part of was it the clinton he did the ninety four crime bill yes exactly he's just an oracle and we just the following orders second man he's seems incredibly out of touch and very creepy in this is not a guy that i'm interested in having his my leader our leaders should be fucking passionate that's why we have trump you know i you know see what you will when i read that about you working with him and him working to get seven thousand signing ability at seven thousand people and more correct and that was huge and you know i mean it didn't necessarily clean the slate for donald trump at all but that that says a lot about the direction of keeping my my frame of mind 'cause i was one of those guys before and i've been able to guide their leading out damage people but but i do see differently because there are some people come home with the who've had challenges but usually by spirits has been the people who blew majority people coming home they really want to land on their feet and do well and we've got to do a better job give place from brownsville brooklyn okay yeah yeah and this is what i know what is it they call the return rate reciprocal rate what a very high sixty seven PM from brownsville brooklyn man it must be eighty percent not more hello everybody i know that's been locked up at been repeat offended me all my friends are all in jail now dead strung out on drugs very very few of them are you saying that we need to make sure that the program when they come home they land on their feet you're not saying leave him in there forever you see them when they come home yeah yeah well i'm a stay need i'll rumble because they helped me is no helps graham yeah in what types of things like outlook program you have to go before you find a job you have to get a skill for the job you have to be able to to have almost like hospitality talapity skills to take care of yourself in the workplace i think we've just been a lot more time i think we should we should put a lot in along with workers you come out of prison talking to people crazy now now you gotta go in the workplace what did you say you have to be very careful after talking to somebody that you say to somebody that did twentieth improvement is all by respecting hi there talk to it's just a different world you can't fuck off dude you're different after the biggest this respect he told me to fuck off you know you got to change in their minds but before we get in the workplace i think as much time and energy that we spend building up these prisons with like if people up one hundred and forty thousand dollars per year per young person locked up you could send to kids to iraq so i would say is now take that same amount of inner keep that same energy energy put fewer people in make sure when they come home they do have those kind of programs and we'll be alright the problem is that we spent so much time and energy damaging people and then we don't wanna it's been any money when they come home do these guys imprint and they making these places they making these things in these the people who are making them for they should make it possible for we i need guys get out after making all that money for our company they should be able to be phil alive i don't know the proper were say rehabilitated transform transform live at different man i know what they do behind in offering you can i say i say i say bring them home and keep that same same energy to make sure they come home in the right way absolutely thing humble wants to bring them home to their daily let's go but what are you gonna do allying out of the cave twenty years it let him go into population i like i said you and i agree that way people come home should matter and we for the moment somebody goes in and you know i wish that few people were going we should be thinking about that they come home and every single day should be supported it right now nobody makes money when the people go home and do well they make money when people come and go and they come back return customers and what we've gotta do we got changes financial incentive i i wanna warden to be rewarded i was listening of all these five six people they leave on friday and they come back on monday with their best friends your fire if they leave on friday and they stay gone for three years and they've been productive we'll give you a million dollars because you just saved us so much money in other words you should you should get a reward for every person leave your prison and does a good job now every day you're in my presence i'm doing yoga which you teach you how to what i mean because somebody come back into my pocket there's no financial incentive to make a good job that's america i looked at fee i watched this program about student thank you saying germany you're young kids sixteen fifteen folks glut wanna go to school raid i wanna smoke we not the police

"van jones" Discussed on Alyssa Milano: Sorry Not Sorry
"Hi, Emma, listenable Llano. And this is sorry. Not sorry where we tackle social political and cultural issues from the perspective of unapologetic guests while highlighting citizen activists doing amazing things throughout the country. Today, you'll hear my conversation with van Jones who's worked to fight for criminal Justice reform is helping hundreds of incarcerated individuals across the country his CNN series. The redemption project explores the human potential for redemption, we talk about the criminal Justice system and explore what needs to happen to solve this national epidemic van Jones and fighting for criminal Justice reform. Sorry, not sorry. Six point six million people are currently in the criminal Justice system in the United States. The land of the free yet, we lock up more people than anyplace else planning. Four point five million of those people are currently on parole or probation many for well beyond a reasonable. I was convicted as a first time valid two other Fender and sit us to life in federal prison. I have the exact same sentence as Charles Manson nearly one out of every one hundred Americans is behind bars a five hundred percent increase over the last thirty years. We spend eighty billion per year on prisons and jails conditions of a prisoner jail often makes her Veivers of really significant trauma. Worse. One out of every three American adults have a criminal record preventing access to employment housing or -cation and job skill development. Magin his job interview and his door is being slammed in your face every single time. This happened to me over hundreds Himes when I came out of prison in two thousand thirteen one in every twenty eight children has apparent in prison or jail. Ten million children will experience a parental incarceration at some point the pain in the guilt of how different her life could have been if I could have just been there for her the destruction in hurt the separation due to encourage the ration- causes cannot ever adequately described with words. You and I met when you were working with cut fifty on the dignity for incarcerated women program. And I was just so struck at a by your your thoughtfulness, and how that campaign was shaped. And I was wondering if you could tell my listeners a little bit about that. And why there is a need for it. Well, I've been working on criminal Justice issues for twenty five years a little bit more than that. I'm honest and. I think all too often we talk about criminal Justice. We talk about, you know, guys behind bars men behind bars brothers behind bars, and what we don't pay attention to the fact that the biggest growing population of behind bars is actually women and women going to prison often because of the activities of their boyfriends or husbands or partners that they then get popped four conspiracy on and sometimes do a longer and more time than their partners to and creates a real crisis in families. Unfortunately, in a very different way. When the mom goes way than the dad because often the mother really isn't the primary caregiver. And then, of course, women go to prison turns out, guess what they're pregnant in prison and prisons are designed for pregnant people. They're not design for all the things that happen for women. And so we've had to fight and I've been so proud as a founder of the dream core in Oakland. We've got a. National campaign called hashtag cut fifty cut fifty dot org. That's working to cut the prison population and crime in half and the big campaign, which up of the past couple of years is dignity for incarcerated women, the idea that we've got a pass a bunch of loss to help women in particular. We better they weren't going to prison such large numbers of it, certainly when they get there. They should be treated with dignity and their special needs. And a core needs should be taken advantage of take an account for instance, you should not shackle women when they are giving birth to babies, they're not likely to jump up and run away. And yet that have been a common practice women should be able to get sanitary items without having to you know, work and try to save up money to pay for them. Those are kind of basic necessities, but they are not offered. And so sometimes women when they don't have money. You don't have money in prison just have to to bleed for that time of the month. Just all kinds of indignities we won't get into. But. We passed almost ten bills across the country now on our way to passing twenty by twenty goal. Our leadership on this is Jessica Jackson, the the great criminal Justice fighter. Help to lead the victory on the first step act and also to PICO Sam herself, formerly incarcerated who has just been a wonder she got out of prison and also helped on first step, and so many things. So it's a woman led campaign. I'm happy to be a cheerleader fort and a and a supporter, but these are the kind of issues and causes that I'm, you know, just a passionate about have been for decades in. I think that was there one moment or was that one. It was there one person that you met along the way what what sparked your interest in criminal Justice reform, you know, been African American guy in the early nineties. I got a law school in ninety three ninety choose Rodney King. There was a big rebellion in Los Angeles in civil civil unrest all across the country because an African American motorist was beaten by for LA cops on video tape and nothing happened to the cops that was huge for me as huge formative thing. Gee looked like that guy. Like, you know, I could have been that guy. And then a couple of graduate nine three very quickly after that the Clinton crime Bill was passed which basically helped celebrate the whole prison building. Boom. Three strikes out. So many things that were happening when I was in my twenties as a young black guy with a lot agree. I felt like this was a fight. That was personal to me. I'm I'll never been involved in any illegal activity, but I felt like the color of my skin was legal giving away. The police in prison system was developing. So I've just just you know, took it on maybe same way young Latino or Latina might take on immigration fight right now. And now almost thirty years later, there's an opportunity to do something about it. The most horrific experience of mine corporation was the transport. And I can remember being handcuffed and shackled and tell him the guard. That's the shackles were to tighten they made title to this day. I still have fogs for things have been festering under the surface of the prison system for a long time. When I was twenty two years old long before I had my law degree. I found myself alone in a courtroom holding my two month old daughter as I watched my husband get taken off to prison for low level drug offence. He spent three and a half years there and slightly ripped my family apart as twenty five I was arrested at nine months pregnant and three incarceration. I was subsequently hang forty three hours. Criminal Justice system thousand publicize on another level. I thought it was just funny that had to happen to like celebrity somebody with a known face America for to be like a issue been crazy. It's sad. That it often takes. The

So you know, me because I'm in the studio audience, and so I'm laying out the shot way. I really thought we were going in one direction. And now we're going in another direction. How James got on camera? I didn't know we were gonna go there. Listening to the story. Like, this is my story of how you laid on the work of getting on cameras. Yes. Everyone's got a dream. But you know, and I could see the shot, and I was near who. Okay. Looks like I'm gonna be lined up. Right. And then, but then my friend, Courtney it was more of her in the shot, and I could see the playback she's not an actor. So she wasn't thinking about looking at any of this stuff. And we're watching the people on the on the pre tapes as like, why aren't they smile in? Don't they know they're on camera? And so I'm like, well, I'm gonna give it a lot of smile. That's why they can probably panic. Well, two things off of the tape. And Courtney was like I was saying, oh, you're in all the shots. And she was like is that why you kept scooting closer to me. Like, I thought you're getting closer to me because we're both in California. We're still to black fabulous people. I was like girl you're in the shots. God were you just like smiling over her?

So I got it. I figured it out. James? You know, what I'm out of you? I'm glad that you got on the shot. I saw the post you look very serious. You look very like on the case. I me and van Jones are on the. Two. I liked that. It took you a minute to realize what they were talking about. I had a lot about shot. And then listen, it's hard.
