Post Standard dated message rates apply. In this nationwide contest. Many of you are familiar with Alan Dershowitz. He's a liberal. He is somebody who believes in strict adherence to the Constitution, which lately has meant that he has taken a number of conservative stances. Left is simply abandoned. Any notion of the Constitution instead wants to do what it wants and any number of things, particularly as we see now in trampling on individual Americans free speech rights by saying If we don't like your speech for going to silence you Complete betrayal of our entire heritage. Of allowing people of all political persuasions to argue their point of view. And let the best idea wind liberals terrified. The conservative ideas have offered one but one what a simply silence them. On the latest issue, Dershowitz has been weighing in on whether or not You can impeach and convict a president after he has left office. Nobody's ever done it. So the Supreme Court has never ruled out it. Dershowitz. Harvard Law professor member of the O. J Dream team, and he's been around for ever and ever and ever committed over the weekend in a couple of programs in which he discussed the reasons that he thanks You're constitutionally can't do it and how practically it would be a disaster. No, I talked earlier about weighing the positives and the negatives. The argument for from the lefties for Removing Trump after if Trump survives there, Trump was responsible for that riot. We got to do something, even if he's gone. Dershowitz makes a number of points that a compelling let me share them. He said. It will be unconstitutional. But that probably won't bother the senators. The constitution is very clear. The subject. The object. The purpose of impeachment is to remove a sitting president. There are two presidents. One is very obvious when President Nixon resigned in anticipation of being impeached and removed. There was no effort to impeach him after he left office. Former President Richard Nixon opted to resign instead of facing the possibility of Senate trial in the early 19 seventies. It was clear that the Senate have lost jurisdiction at that point. She what said of the Nixon impeachment. Proponents cite another president in 18 76. There was a failed effort a failed effort to remove the secretary of war. In an initial vote, the Senate voted close in a close vote that they did have jurisdiction to try this have somebody someone who had resigned House Democrats in 10. Republicans IMPEACH Trump for a second time making Trump the first president to U. S history to be impeached twice. No president has ever been convicted in the Senate. Last week's impeachable is based on a speech that Trump gave to supporters to us. A small group reached the U. S Capitol billion in January. 6 said Dershowitz There is no jurisdiction. You cannot put citizen Trump on trial. If you could do that. It would be a bill of attainder number one, putting somebody on trial who was not a sitting president. He added that the implications would be horrendous. Let's stop and pause for above it. This is me. Let's imagine. We're saying that you can What? Someone who is now an ordinary citizen, a former president on trial via impeachment. Let's imagine we just to say that you could do that. Pick up your shoe. It's now. It would mean That if the Republicans came up with a terrific candidate, say not Donald Trump. Run against President Biden and 2024. The Democrats could simply impeach him. In other words, the point that Dershowitz is making If you're saying that you can impeach a non president. What's to stop them from impeaching someone who's never been the president? Trump once he leaves office is simply a private citizen. He's subject that the courts as any other American would be, but they're sure what's this point is, if they're saying that they can impeach a non president. What would stop them from impeaching someone who is merely running for president in an attempt to disqualify him from office. It's a fascinating question, Is it He continues. If you can impeach anyone who was not a sitting president. There are no limits to the power of the Congress to cry ordinary citizens. It is plainly unconstitutional. And the Senate should not proceed with this unconscious. ITU sh Inal Act.

And you're out of job just like so many hundreds of thousands of people in this state. When did you first apply in? What has your journey been like through the Department of Workforce Development? I. Applied March. Twenty Nine So in is now banned five full months. that. They have ignored my request for help. And I think calling almost daily I've been on hold for. Oh Man, it must. I would say spent over fifty hours. I've been on the phone through this time. Waiting to talk to someone, and once I talked to him a lot most of the time they say well I'm sorry I can't help you and I tell them that my situation is dire to. Be Homeless, and they. I asked if I can talk to a supervisor. And they say I'm sorry we can't help you. There is no different visor who can help you just gotTa. Wait gotTA keep waiting what they keep saying every single young but not just say. And that'd be one thing that's awful enough. But then there are some as you've told us as we feature here in the story, they've just been downright rude and inhumane to you, and I've heard that from others to if you wouldn't mind share those stories. In I feel horrible. Feel Hopeless helpless. And so when I wait forever to get on the phone and I'm hollering one hundred and sixty seven and finally get through the line and talk to someone and. They tell me I'm going to get the money that everything's cleared up on my claim and everything's good to go and I say I have nothing to worry about right and they say you don't everything's good. I promise you and they're even trying to figure out the calculations of what the amount will be president in my account. And then a couple days later I call, just verify it. Because I want to hear again from someone else to believe is really real and they tell me well, you know you're I. Don't know why you were told that you're not getting any money anytime soon that we can see it's nothing has changed in your claim you just need to keep waiting. Just just absolutely heartbreaking and deflating I know someone waiting for ever for this bureaucratic machine to finally work as you do weight of course, your resources are shrinking I. Know You told me in our conversation last week that you've been able to get some help from a kindly landlord at the house that you rent but you know he's only got so much time left as well in terms of the mortgage that he has to pay I know your parents. They've helped out as well as I understand it, and well, how often can you go to that? Well, I, guess is the question and for someone I know like you talking to you getting a little better understanding of who you are. That's the last thing in the world you WanNa do and then you you are waiting for. Not a handout that's what people don't quite understand. This is this is something that it's not a welfare program businesses pay this and they expect the government to be able to process this and to do it in a timely fashion and five months is inexcusable. Right. It breaks my heart every time I have to tell my mom I don't have money to pay these bills again I just fixed. It hurts so bad I. DON'T WANNA. Play her in a bad place either. So we're five months of this. We're talking with Jamie Suon. She is one of the thousands of claimants still waiting months now for resolution from the Department of Workforce Development. And I know as I understand it our conversation told me. It's not like sitting on the sidelines here just waiting for wd to pay you the money that you're old. You've been looking for work. Yup in the Hudson area. But you haven't found anything in your category of work which train for us I understand is that correct? That's correct. I've been applying for jobs every single day for five months. I have six years of experience and there's just way more people who need jobs right now than there are jobs to be given. So it's not our fault we're trying. This. Is Nothing. did you what's the update? What's the situation now? Is there any good news to report from the Department of Workforce Development About your situation? Now, there's no good news I was called by Nigeria Decatur this morning and. He was interested in other information, but he would not discuss the job that is going to qualify for unemployment. So it appears that he's trying to make it so that if I do get paid out, then it'll be a less amount than I really should receive. They're trying to find any way to do less than what we deserve. They're trying to push it on another temporary job that you had for a couple of months before everything went haywire and use that as opposed to the the full job that you had where you were working forty to sixty hour weeks. And earning a good income which would have. Provided a good standard unemployment check something that you could that would definitely help you survive on now i. think we should note as well. Your story is so familiar to so many so many perhaps some of our listeners out there you at months, of course, not hearing from anybody as you applied for standard state unemployment they finally after how many months rejected you for that, which you needed before you could apply for the federal pandemic unemployment assistance insurance. How long does that process? I waited for months for them to say I'm sorry or denied, and now you need to apply for way instead. Is. It that the catch twenty two because until you get that denial, you can't move forward of. They tell you that and yet here you are stuck in this limbo of bad bureaucracy. Spider's Web you can't get out of. Yeah. That's a great way to describe it, and that's the feeling that I get from others so many others talking about this. Where where do you stand right now financially, and where do you stand in terms of hope that this thing will be resolved? I tried so hard to be hopeful every time I get on the phone to call them again I I I just pray and I hope and I feel like maybe this is the day, but it doesn't happen I. I don't have enough money to pay my mortgage or my rent for this month I don't have my I don't have the money to pay for a cell phone which I need in order to. Get a job then either way for them to contact me. I don't have money for my electric bill. I've done everything I possibly can do that I can think of contacting senators. Getting the help I did from my mom, but she can only do so much and I don't want to do that anymore anyway and. I just I don't exhausted everything I can think of an I don't know how to get through to them. This isn't okay that we're suffering. Absolutely, and now as I understand, it as told me earlier, you're at the point of holding garage sale selling off your possession. So you can find some sort of a way to pay those bills that are outstanding. My daughter is manning grudge already this moment because I don't know what else to do.

Just about ready to close at the conversation I think his point is well taken about the parents who have been counting on these plans they've been working with their schools on these plans in schools in many occasions have tried to keep their families informed about what's going on. They've got a plan set that may be a hybrid, it may be. An opening in class schools that would include some distance learning virtual learning.

"Bit of the backstory here's when the DHL from the state level. Under chapter two, fifty, two has the ability to close and schools statewide, and that's what happened. Last Spring the state health commissioner closed schools and everybody had to go virtual. So we all lived through it. Some better than others you made it through. And then this fall the state wide school closure order has expired that expired June thirtieth. Then, it rolls down to the local level and only the combination of a health order and enforcement mechanism inside local ordinances can create a situation where health officer has the ability to close schools right now that only exist in three small parts of the state really in county the city of Milwaukee, and I believe the city of Racine I think also on the orange, there are some other counties that tried to do that were pushback for. They we don't want to give these authority to our hope so. That'd be made that that's how things ended up and so we can also back a lot of this backup to the state VHS Gin May and June the Department of Public Instruction was trying to get guidance out to schools to be a specific possible what they were going to do both in the spring and this coming fall about guidance for opening summers will all that. But school closure order is based on health order not a school closer. So the DP I was at the behest of the HSA they had to wait for the guy and they waited and they waited and they waited, and in the MVP I put something out. That was helpful schools to give them some guidance. But it took a long time fast forward down just a few weeks ago when the walkie health department change their grading criteria and graded the. Gym I I'm afraid we're losing a little bit in the reception zone go ahead. You were just talking about when Milwaukee the health department changed its grading formula in terms of where folks are going to go in a phased in approach in terms of opening businesses, schools that sort of thing right. So I think there was an awful lot of work that was already done by the private schools to implement. CDC guidelines, other things, all the private schools wanted to be you know reduces must rid as possible create a safe environment as possible. That was always the intent know they've been working on plant a little bit at the eleventh hour. We get this insertion of now you have to plan approved well, once again, this started three weeks ago and the Milwaukee Health Department to their credit that we're looking for guidance from the state. To give specifics on when outbreak happens inside a school exactly how they want us to follow. Well, again, the Milwaukee Health Department had to wait and wait and wait therefore all the private schools had to wasting away and wait, and so finally this last week we've started to cobble together something that I think is going to work The schools are going back and forth with the. Staff of the walkie health department, they started to submit plans. I'm not sure anybody approved yet, but there are certainly been some submittal. So we're seeing a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel. One of the issues that concerns us though is the package that we have. Now that has schools sending in a template that follows a lot of DC guideline and has some. Activity that they have to do if there's positive tests inside their school. There's nothing in the statute of a law that whether Milwaukee or Dane County wherever that actually then locks that into place meaning the schools can open be operational, and then at any time I hope commissioner can say, guess what we're going to change the criteria again and it's all the window and that's the frustrating part is that The schools are really being good faith actors here, and they're trying to create something with the Walk L. Department that adds some predictability. So they know what to do because opening and reopening a school or changing criteria. That's not just like flipping a switch it takes money it takes time it's resources explaining. So in order to make these things work if not, what does it look like on the piece of paper? It's what was it looked like inside the school building as people are trying to not just. Be Sensitive to the covert pandemic but also trying to educate kids because it's not just keeping keeping them safe while you're providing quality education and that gets lost in the conversation about of time. So the frustration part is. Not necessarily. Ben With the health aspect of this because I think the Milwaukee Health Department staff especially working with the schools have been speaking to common language from that standpoint the H. from the state really being very slowly getting any sort of guidance out as newly wrenching Aguirre's. So I'm an optimist I'M GONNA, keep my fingers crossed that we can get some things moving in the schools open. But it has been kind of an eleventh hour frustrating process. I'm sure it has and we're talking with Jim Bender President of school choice Wisconsin it's not just frustrating. It's just it's it's a mess. It has left everybody in a complete sense of disarray no organization and Yeah it's The da Jess certainly but I have to think that the person in charge here the health officer. This is my opinion doesn't reflect your opinion I understand but this is a person who's grown quite fond of powers and her ability to move things around in the way that she deems fit and now this is the situation we're in. You talked about how schools can't just turn on a dime basically understandably. So think about. The lives of of these students and these parents and these teachers and community members who are impacted by these decisions and you and we're talking about this not settled Jim. August four. August. Thirteenth we're days away from opening. This is just beyond frustrating. Their schools that were planning on opening on Monday and many within ten days and another Bo. We're talking about more than one hundred private schools here, all of which are opening in the next few weeks and so yes, it an impact on the schools but they were all for the most part planning on some sort of hybrid approach, a virtual option for those parents at wanted but in person for those that wanted it. The. Plan got changed in late June. There was no press. There was no information. We just kinda stumbled upon it and we went from schools being open to schools being closed overnight, and now we're back to schools being open. Well, that's incredibly hard for parents because they are trying to up. Yup I. Think well, I think we might have lost. You to.

He'll join us in just a few minutes to talk about the impacts of Health Commissioner Ginette. Kwalik, sweeping authority to keep schools including private schools closed. This was a liberty case that was I believe clear and ripe for the picking for the conservative lad although a thinner majority conservative-led Wisconsin court. This was a case that they I think could have maybe should have picked up because of the liberty questions and the urgency the exigency is they like to say of the particular case in Milwaukee with this overbearing and overreaching Milwaukee.

You have a lot of folks that you represent and advocate for scratching their heads today. Still wondering what the heck is going to be the ultimate plan come the start of the school year just. Days away what we have basically, if I can set this up as we have a health commissioner who originally said, now we're going all virtual, even the private schools you can pound sand if you don't like it well, the private schools didn't like it. In fact, some of them protested so she did alternate. After the lawsuit or the petition that was filed, she did alternately say, well, you can do a in an in class. School opening. If I approve your plan and therein lies the problem with this overreaching power grabbing health official. What are your your folks saying out in Milwaukee? Today. Jen.

"The new deal. Social security act was drafted by wisconsinite Medicare decades later. The great society was drafted by wisconsinite loyal to what they called the Wisconsin idea, which was basically using the university of Wisconsin to draw the expertise faculty, their craft legislation that would help the citizens of the entire state and a lot of these pragmatic. But idealistic reforms came out of this movement, and then we're translated into a national thing and it became what Louis Brandeis called a laboratory of democracy. Recently, you know, since the Walker your, it has become a laboratory for conservatives and Wisconsin has been modeled version of Walker's famous act ten Bill, which stripped public workers of their bargaining rights was just passed in Iowa in two thousand seventeen. I think Republicans see the effect if these laws on changing the electric. There's been studies that have shown. Right to work states decrease correlate to decrease democratic turnout by about three and a half percent. So they're very important at engineering kind of political dominance that has really transformed, shaped Wisconsin. I'm not saying it's permanent, but it has. It has changed and Wisconsin also had one of the early adoptions of progressive state income tax to if I'm that's right. Yeah. And, and we should also say though, you know, there was also Joe McCarthy came from Wisconsin as. It was always sort of was there always this duality or I mean. Was it? Did this? Do our exist simultaneously? Did it go back and forth me? Because I. Yeah. I mean, I think. Hard. It's going to understand how I mean, I'm still sort of reeling frankly, from Ron Johnson defeating Russ Feingold. Right? Like that, like I don't underst- like I, it's like walking out and just wafting watching things sort of float up in the air. Like I don't understand the that just feels like gravity doesn't exist in that situation and we'll work our way up there. But is this I mean, is this a question of of just a duality that's going on there was, is there a. Was there something lost, or was there something a strain that existed that this sort of emerged over the past? I know twenty twenty years ten years. Well, I would say that there's always been this duality recently. There's been a lot of things to keep the hand on the scale. So that's the back and forth doesn't work quite the same way. Additionally, the parameters for the conservatives have been stretched to the far far right that you you always had. I mean, in the late sixties, Republican governor was the one who enshrined collective bargaining rights for all state workers to this strand of republicanism was still somewhat moderate. Yes. Joe McCarthy was elected twice the first time. It should be noted. He would not yet the demagogue person he became the red scare was launched in nineteen fifty, but he did win reelection. George Wallace basically launched his national presidential career with a surprisingly strong showing Wisconsin. It's always had that too, but I think the dominant force was always the kind of. Matic progressivism that persisted. What's happened is it's been whittled away this, you know, in the early seventies, the conservatives began coalescing began building a very powerful infrastructure. It's been documented brilliantly and Jane Mayer's, dark money and and other books. But this infrastructure has helped shift the balance slowly. It's very, I. I describe it as a kind of attritional war and things long-settled things like belief in voting rights and and so on. They get, they get whittled away and then quite dramatically and the tea party wave in two thousand ten when Republicans seized tons of state legislatures, including Wisconsin first time in a long time, and that gave him this enormous opportunity that -tunities also came in the midst of a really severe financial crisis. People were looking for someone to blame and Scott Walker, blamed public employee's. He called them. In his inaugural address to have, and taxpayers have not. Even though of course, these public employees, we're also paying taxes. Yeah, right there because and I wanna go back a little bit in terms of Scott Walker and trace his career a little bit because he was. Fairly well positioned at least in terms of his political career to to a spouse that line. But how much of it. Was was that how much of that was racially coded because I mean, right, right. Yeah. I mean, Milwaukee is the most segregated city in the country, and he was the Marquis county executive any launched fierce war disproportionately the public and players are probably disproportionately minority..
