Alec and Hilaria Baldwin Have Kid Problems
"But you'll like this. And you'll only get it from me. It's about our bowl, but in his wife hilaria and their children, okay? This comes on the heels of them posting Instagram picture on Thanksgiving, showing them in their 7 kids and was so hectic. Some kids weren't looking at the camera and they just wanted us to know this was an epic fail Thanksgiving ha ha he were all the same. We're all parents we get it. No, we're not the same because we don't hire professional photographers in our living room to set up and take a picture that might take 90 minutes. So we're not the same. But here's the story. The baldwins live in Manhattan. They send the kids to school in Brooklyn. Don't know why. It's not a private school. They're plenty of great schools in New York City. But they send their kids to the international school where lessons are taught in English, Spanish, and French, and you can guess which language hilaria wants the kids to be taught in. So I found out that their daughter Carmen goes to school in full goth makeup and this kid's in fourth grade. On top of that, their son Raphael has been telling students that his father quote murdered someone, but it's okay because he gets away with everything. This is also the kid you should know that wrote fucked you on his parents car when everything was going crazy. So something is wrong in their lives, even though they make us think it's Paradise. Kids are affected by everything. We can rarely hide things from kids. They see all dramas. But I mean, look, the parents of these children should be alarmed and, you know, take the kids home and talk to them, but no, not Alec and hilaria. They're telling people that, look, you know, this behavior by them is okay because they're only expressing themselves. Really? Is that what you think these kids are doing expressing themselves?

I'm Dominique Carter in and historic vote House Democrats today elected representative Hakeem Jeffries of Brooklyn to lead the party in the next Congress, marking a generational shift after 20 years under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi, the move makes Jeffries the first African American figure to lead either party in Congress in the nation's history. Jeffries was one of three next generation leaders who quickly swept in to solidify their place as uncontested contenders atop the party brass. A man riding a rush hour Bronx subway train to work was beaten and choked by a heat filled stranger, screaming racial obscenities, police said today.

Why Do We Need Trannies in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade
"By the way, I was watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. Why do I have to see drag queens? Get screen time, why do we need this? You know, I got to ask my good family friend who produces this extravaganza every year. I know him, I know Jordan since he was two years old, Jack and his dad were friends in high school and college and I mean, I've known Jordan for over 50 years. Great kid, he produces the Macy's parade, also the firework show, he does great work, but I don't want to see drag queens, JoJo, what are we doing here? I'm gonna reach out and ask him what the hell, look, maybe he comes up from way up high because he produces a shell, but it could be people above him going, hey, we need this thing here. You know, every year the Macy's Thanksgiving parade always features some of New York's Broadway plays to be featured. I don't want to see grown men dressed as women and looking like freaks, by the way. While the family is all together to give thanks. Why do we need this? You got why not kids looking with wonder as the massive floats go down the streets of New York City. Spider-Man. This SpongeBob. They're stupid. And then what is this? Oh, another opportunity to make sure the whole world gives thanks to the LGBTQ people. Why? Why are we always doing this?

"This is where the money goes, folks. It goes into private hands of the politicians. Think about the former mayor de Blasio's wife, Charlene. What an absolute just. I mean, criminal. I don't know how else to put it. She was put in charge of this agency to help out mentally ill or whatever. And billions, billions of dollars for a psychiatric things or whatever. God, God. None of it got no results to show for any of it. No accountability, no tracking, nothing to show for it, right? Billions of dollars. Now, of course, comrade de Blasio and his wife Charlene will be multi multi hundred, 200 million at some point. I'm sure there will be one for the rest of their life. Because you deserve money. It's our money. This is what happens. So you think about those hundred employees, those 50 employees you mentioned, that left New York City. They're making a half $1 million a year. You also have New York City taxes bike. So now you've got another bunch there. So 15%, 75,000 times 50. It's a lot of money. We're going to take a let's take a quick break.

I mean, you're talking about a state that has two to one registered Democrats or Republican and Lee Zelda almost pulled it out. And a big part of his success and actually Republicans actually taking some congressional seats over a big part of that success has been safety and we've always talked about safety is really being the most important thing out of all the economic things out there.
NYPD officers, bystander save man who fell on subway tracks
"A dramatic rescue on the subway tracks in New York City's east Harlem on Thanksgiving. Two NYPD officers and a good Samaritan raced to save a man who fell on the tracks plucking him out of the way of an oncoming train and it was all caught on an officer's body cam. You hear the commotion in the oncoming train police say the man fell by accident Thanksgiving afternoon he's going to be okay. The officers were on the opposite platform when they saw him. They ran up outside across the street and back down to the other platform to get him. The good Samaritan was already on the tracks. They got the man up, but when one officer tried to climb up his gun belt caught on something and he had to be lifted out just

"Programs with this sort of universal enrichment model. That's been scrapped, the mayor is expanding the sort of traditional G and T programs. So Democrats are sort of with you there. State level, there's really no movement on changing the law around admissions to the specialized high schools, so we're with you there. Does that just need to be sort of part of the democratic platform here to not continue losing Asian American voters or on education issues, what does it what does it need to be? Yeah. I mean, I have three young daughters that are going through the same public school that I went to in Queens, so I live this every day with other Asian families and parents. And many of them are not a 100% would gente or specialized tests either. Again, it's complex, a lot more complicated than that. I think what they're mostly frustrated, which many other communities, immigrant communities share, is being a constant perpetual cycle of a rat race. You know, this is a, this is a hyper competitive society that we're putting our kids in. And it's traumatic. It's stressful to the families. And there's no opting out of it when you're living in New York City. Like you either have to do this to get into this stuyvesant enter Bronx science, otherwise you feel left out and you feel like you're not doing your best for your kids.

Crime Then Vs. Crime Now
"I would love to know the number of murders, the percentage obviously do it by percentage, not by numbers. What was the percentage of Americans murdered? In the 1930s versus today, a hundred years ago, so about 1920s, I don't know. I would be very curious to know. I do know this, my parents, who were kids in the 1930s, or young people, so let's see what my mother would have been. My father would have been 12 to 1930. So he would have been 22 in 1940. I'm fine. My mother was one year younger. So she says, and she grew both grew up in New York City. At 2 a.m. she would walk unconcerned from the subway to her parents home. Back

"Back into the business of financing home and community care so we can actually make this sector work. Let me come back to a couple of these other things we've been discussing here. When you have been on the campaign trail in this election and public safety comes up, what are you hearing from Asian American voters in the flushing area and beyond if you're outside of your district, what are you hearing in terms of what people want in order to feel and be safe, Republicans clearly made bail reform sort of synonymous with the rise in crime and the messaging on that from Republicans before bail reforms even were enacted once they were passed or even as they were being passed, they were being tied to a predicted increase in crime, crime wound up increasing and the narrative was just there. And they hit that home to a remarkable degree that for so many in New York, people just associated the increase in crime that was obviously very much correlated with the pandemic and the disruptions to society, but also a variety of criminal justice policies, both in the New York City, government and the state government, but became basically synonymous, a message that was repeatedly hit home while Democrats had either no message or a very murky message on public safety, were you hearing basically from Asian American voters that they were convinced the problem is bail reform and you were trying to talk them out of that viewpoint and point to other things. What were you hearing from Asian American voters on the issue of public safety about what they thought the problem was and what they wanted the solutions to be and what's your message around those direct public safety policies? I mean, I think there are a whole range of feedbacks from so many Asian voters, but yes, public safety from students in my district that are writing the subways to go to school in the city. Every night to older adults that are afraid to go shopping anymore with somebody going with them. It's at the top of the list. And they're not pinpointing to one exact thing in bell reform surprisingly hasn't come up as often among the among the Asian Americans. But what has come up is the homelessness issue because it's much more visible. And their correlating the uptick of violent behavior would homeless individuals who need mental health counseling that are living on the streets and around us, which is much more visible now and then before. And listen, a couple of the most horrific examples of murders of Asian American New Yorkers occurred in those very situations. So that makes a lot of sense in terms of what seeping into the psyche and the visible nature of how Asian American voters would be thinking, right? Correct. So Asian Americans for equality, afi, they wanted to they're moving forward with the transition of housing, the entire community was up in arms because they thought that this was going to be a homeless shelter. And they were protesting for months, even though it was a transitional housing for domestic balance. Families, people with children, but anything that's even remotely close to homeless shelters, they're just afraid that it's going to it's going to attract a violent offenders who are not being taken care of. Which is why yesterday, you know, I stood with the mayor and met with the mayor privately as well as he rolled out his administrative and clinical capacity building to deal with the homeless and the mentally ill in our communities.

Melinda Gates, Amal Clooney and Michelle Obama Have Joined Forces
"Also a writer, they talked to none of you are going to remember this, but you should. You should look her up. Selma diamond. You know, back in the day, there were ten sitcoms. And each sitcom had ten writers on the show. That's a hundred writers. Only one was female, and that was Selma diamond. Could you imagine the story she had to tell? She became a prolific comedy writer, worked on a lot of shows and these shows normally only had men, tough fall, broad, New York City, Jewish chip, she didn't give a fuck. I just wish the women today could sit down and watch a couple of hours of Selma diamond talking about what it took to make it in the world. But nowadays you can watch Amal Clooney and Melinda Gates and Michelle Obama talking about their problems. I put up an I put up an Instagram with these three rules, their picture saying, please remind me not to watch this. They've all announced a collaboration between their foundations to advance gender equality and get this to end child marriage, I didn't even know we had a huge problem with child marriage. Is that a new thing? Is this the next thing? Is that going to be a new ribbon? What's that gonna be colored? Magenta? Child marriage, what is this all about? You can introduce all these new things to me. I know these three women don't care about the price of gasoline, how much groceries cost and living paycheck to paycheck has never ever happened in their lives. So they got bigger issues to tackle. I mean, Melinda was married to Bill Gates, one of the wealthiest men ever in the world. Also a man who knew of Jeffrey Epstein's predilection for underage girls and still made him a best friend. Also a man who has his hand in vaccinations and is treated like some kind of king when he goes to the G four summit or other smarty art functions. Why is Bill Gates treated like he's an elected official? It's a fucking computer nerd. With money. So listen, ladies, pay attention to what these women have to say. Especially Melinda Gates. Here's what she said. About, what is the issue? Of our lifetime. She said, my mom always told me, set your agenda or someone else will. A bullshit, your mother didn't use that expression. No one talked about agendas in the fucking 50s and 60s. It's a lie. She never said that. Set your agenda. That wasn't an expression. It just wasn't. It's like saying nowadays, oh, you gotta go to the link and cut and paste the link and we understand that today. one would have understood that in the 60s. No one heard set your own agenda. She's full of shit. And she said, and the agenda of our lifetime is making sure women can take their full power in society. Women have these unpaid burdens. Take our children, of our elderly parents, but what I want to say to women is you need to take care of yourselves first. Once you do that, then you can fully take care of others. But if we name the unpaid labor that we do, society can help us. And if good policies are put in place, it makes our jobs easier. Everybody has agency. Hate that expression. Everybody has agency, but being able to use our full agency to be fully in our female power isn't always possible. But if you start and empower someone else and they're going to empower everybody around them and you'll see what happens. I don't know where to start. I don't know where to start. I love our female power. Imagine if I began a speech by talking about our male power, I'd be booed off the stage and pelted with old bread and eggs. Such a double standard of bullshit and then what she's saying is something I haven't ever seen with the women who raised me, maybe you did, did you? I don't think you did. I didn't, did you? My sister rosalie takes care of all of us or two sons, her husband, her fucking brother who's on his ass and not knowing what the fuck's what two grandkids or 6 dogs and anybody else who wants help or attention. I've never heard her say, um, I can't do anything until I take care of myself first. But rather, the companies coming over in 15 minutes, what can I do? Didn't you hear me? I'm taking care of myself. I'll be down when I'm down. Don't imagine my mother when I was ten years old or so. Mom, you didn't pack a cold lunch. And I got no money for a hot lunch. What do I do? My father takes me, she's like, your mother is taking care of a

Dinesh Continues His Review of the Midterm Election Results
"I'm back and we're talking about the midterms and some results have come in in the last day or so. In fact, I mean I were talking together about results out of New York. A number of congressional races that were poised kind of on the knife's edge or were right in the middle have tipped over into the Republican column. Let's remember, by the way, we think of New York, we're like, wow, New York really? What? But New York is fairly conservative outside of New York City. So as you begin to move Long Island as you move upstate, you republicanism is not uncommon, and in some ways it's even the majority. So it's only because of the dense population of New York that New York is a safely by and large democratic state. But what you have here is races that were that had about an equal number of Republicans and Democrats. So maybe even democratic leaning falling the Republican way. Now what does this mean? Well, it basically helps us in the house. And we have to give credit to this guy Lee zeldin, Lee zeldin ran against Kathy hochul for the governor's race, and he lost, but he lost pretty narrowly. I mean, if you look at those numbers between Zelda and hulk, I mean huckel won it pretty cleanly, but it was not the normal blowout. It wasn't something where hoku got 60 and zeldon got 40. It was something where these guys were just a few points apart and what that means is that Zelda had a sort of coattail in New York. He was able to pull up some of the other Republicans. By the way, this was just a confirmation of how politics works in teams. In other words, if you do well at the top of the ballot, you often do better at the bottom of the ballot. One of the anomalies of 2020 was the Trump lost, but Republicans down ballad did pretty well. This is an anomaly that I think about when I, as I put the film together 2000 meals and also wrote the wrote the accompanying book.

The 'Cancelling' of Laura Osnes and Nathan Johnson
"Would happen? What began this canceling of Laura osnes and Nathan Johnson? Yeah, it kind of happened overnight. I was, as you said, very blessed to have several years of success in New York City. And I do not take that for granted. I loved every second of it. My Broadway dream came true. And I got to live that dream for several years. And I'm really grateful. But all of it kind of flipped overnight. I had agreed to do this was last summer 2021. I had agreed to do a one night concert. A benefit concert as a favor for a friend. And all of a sudden, the venue for the concert, this is on Long Island, was mandating the COVID vaccine. And reached out to me. It's hard to process this or at least it's hard. It's hard for me not to interrupt my guess when they say something like that because I live in New York and the madness, we never have to stop talking about this. The lunacy. I mean, it's just, it's extreme. I've written about different periods in history, and I never dreamt that in the United States. I would bump up against this kind of stuff. And during this COVID stuff, I've never seen such, you know, what do you call it? Stupidity, just like tremendous stupidity, you know, and you just think, this makes no sense. And we all have to kind of comply or we were bullied into complying or we had to push back or whatever. So it's kind of an amazing thing that they're telling you, yeah. If you want to perform here, you got all these accolades, but you need to get that shot. And that's another subject, but you're telling me that this was in the middle of 2021. Yes, this was summer of 2021. This was actually before a lot of the public mandates came about and probably September. You know what I mean? Things started to mandate around then, and to be honest, the theater industry still mandates, equity, the actors equity union, still requires all actors on the stage to be triple X or quadruple vax, even though the audience doesn't have to be. I don't know if you know this, but Fran Drescher just came out. Wonderful wonderful video saying like, you know, I'm vaccinated, but she was disgusted by what we're talking about. This idea that everyone in the industry you want to work, you know, you've worked your whole life to get to this point, but now you need to get this experimental injection. Hey, maybe it'll kill you, but at least you'll have a job

"And so forth. Can you go into that a little bit to sort of finish out that broad strokes picture? It would be my pleasure. I mean, really touched on it. I mean, Voting Rights Act, and we have to be very conscious of the voting rights implications and we've had experts who are part of the team that gives input to our lawyers and to our staff and to the commission among commissioners around voting rights also dealing with the city charter and what that means as far as the role that we play and shaping the outcome of this process. And also the U.S. Constitution and one person run vote and what that actually means. And then you said something that really has played a major role in dealing with deviation. And I always say to folks that my college professors would even still laugh at me even saying that word deviation from my statistics class, but we have a 5% deviation level that we have to follow prior to us in the prior commission. There was a 10% deviation so you could go up and down from the largest to the smallest back then with 10% deviation. Now it's a 5% deviation. And that impacts on the decision making. And one of the key things that you said in your introduction is the number of people that have from the 2010 census to the 2020 census, we have to focus on. We have an additional 630,000 individuals that have moved into New York City when the census was taken. So that is a major factor in where people move to. And then the implications of how we have to take a look at the lines based on the populations of the various districts because as you know, and your audience should know that we can't go any larger than 51 digits district. So we are confined to have the 630,000 people fit into the existing 51 districts with the overlay of the 5% deviation with the overlay of voting rights implications with the overlay of one person one vote and other variables that we have to take into consideration. So it is a very complex process. Yes, indeed. Who is who is running this process? There's you, obviously, as chair of the commission, there's 15 commissioners. I'm not going to list them off. People can look up the names and their backgrounds. Online. So there's 15 commissioners with very backgrounds. You have staff, you have to bring in, I'm sure statistical experts and people on the team, can you bring us a little bit behind the curtain in terms of, you know, who's sort of doing what? Sure. And that's a great question because there's a person who is our executive director who is just so adept at this.

"You guys hear about this jet blue flight out of JFK. This is insane. Fox business reporting, Danielle, genevieve. Is the writer? Video surfaced online of JetBlue passengers begging crew members to let him off the airplane after it tried to land at JFK four times. So they had the pilot had to abort the landing four times at JFK. So they had to divert over to Newark airport, which is like not too terribly far away at all. It's just maybe a few minutes. And apparently they were left on the tarmac at Newark for about an hour, they were waiting for the weather to pass, the winds were gusting about 35 miles an hour. Now, I don't know if you've ever had the opportunity to be in an airplane. When they have to abort the landing, but it will put the fear of God in the atheist. I'm telling you, it is, it'll scare the living daylights out of you. Grace baker, we were coming in for a landing. At Laguardia. I've never experienced this. And that's a short, it's a short runway, so as soon as you land there slamming on the brakes, we were just about ready to touch down and boom, we shot up, I mean it was like a rocket going away. I thought I thought my life was over. I was going to end up in the water. Was there a lot of where people screaming and yelling? So I was, this was kind of funny. It was one of the smaller planes. I was in the front seat. And then the flight attendant was literally, you know, her seat is facing mine. So we're looking at each other, and her eyes were as big as saucers. And I looked down and she was just gripping her seat and I thought, sweet lord, we're done. Yeah, when the flight attendants freaking out, you're like, 'cause it's their job to stay calm. Oh yeah, nobody was calm on that airplane. Except the pile and I hope. I hope so. They got us down. But I felt bad for these people. So they were like freaking out. They were coming in from cancun. So, you know, they had to go through, you know, they had to go through the passport checkpoints on that. Oh yeah. So they were just terrified. I don't blame them one bit. Well, I'm glad you made it safely, Todd. One of the passengers said, people are getting sick back here. We gotta get off the plane. Oh my gosh. Aren't you glad you weren't in the back of that play? Take the lord. I did have to go on the remember captain Sully, landed the plane in the Hudson River. Everybody survived. So they decided, was this U.S. air? Continental or U.S. air rather decided they were going to let captain Sully finish the flight. Because it was a New York to Charlotte flight. So I was doing live hits with Fox News outside of Laguardia, and I thought, you know, it would be kind of fun to get to get a ticket on board that flight. I mean, all the dignitaries were there the mayor. Sure. Everybody was on board the flight. And so I thought, you know what? I'm going to do it. Hopped into the airport. They said, yeah, we can get you a seat. And I got the last seat on that flight. From New York to Charlotte, there's a great picture on Facebook of me and captain Sully. It was interesting because you know the plane got hit by birds. That's what happened. The birds, it was a bird strike. Took out all the engines. And it happened right after takeoff. So we're taking off and it was interesting because right about the point where they had the original bird strike, every single person on that plane was looking at the window to make sure there weren't any birds. Oh yeah, I bet the lines were not drawn. Everyone had their little window up. Everybody was ready. I had my I had my life preserver just in case in case. But we made it safely, and then I realized, holy crap, I got to get back to New York, so I had literally booked another flight and got right back to New York City. There's a lot of flying. I hope you had a good book. That was back when flying was fun. Yeah. Ish. Yes. It was fun, it was tolerable. It was tolerable. I think that's a fair case, because I'm not a big fan of the Charlotte airport. Aside from the rocket chairs. Yeah. You know, I recall, I've been through it once or twice. It's okay. It's all right. It's small. All right, look, folks. Pay attention again, manhunt underway in New York City. So let's be praying for all of the victims of the attack today. We don't know what we don't know what the motive was. We just know it was horrible. Also, be sure to pray for those first responders law enforcement out there searching for the bad guy.

"Well, listen, keep in mind, one New York City is a terrorist prone location, if you will. It's a target rich environment. We've known that dating back to the early 90s, right? So and everybody knows that there's a number of protocols in place for the police department and other agencies, including those within the mass transit system. The response if there's a crisis or an emergency like this, nobody is called this terrorism yet. They haven't classified it. That will take a little time. They need to find this guy identify who he is, what is intent was, whether he had any other accomplices, but look, in New York City, as the manpower, the resources, the training that most departments don't have, especially the manpower, the size, you know, when I was in command of the NYPD on 9 11, I had 55,000 men and women under my command. That's basically a small army, if you will. And other departments around the country don't have those kinds of resources. So we can get there faster. The training is superb. They know their job. There's protocols in place to respond to crises like this. And that's what you saw today. Bernie, what's happening behind the scenes now. Again, you said you've been in that position before. What are what's the NYPD command structure doing at this point? Well, the NYPD will work in conjunction with the FBI and the joint terrorist task force, which consists of FBI agents, New York City detectives, New York State police and a number of other federal agencies like the ATF, the U.S. Marshals, things like that. They'll all work together to conduct this investigation to identify the suspects, look at accomplices once they find this guy and they get a hold of his phone as computers. They'll know everything these guys drawn to the last year. So maybe more, so that's the kind of things they're looking for, but for now, there's different rings of this investigation. They've got to do the train, they've got to do the witnesses that came off the drain that saw something on the train. They have to do witnesses on the outside of the subway station. They may have seen this guy come in and go out. It's a big process, takes a little time, but like I said on a number of shows this morning, our predict they'll get him and they'll get them in due course. You know, it's interesting, Bernie, I lived in Brooklyn for 15 years, and I was on that train line. I was got off at park slope, I think that's where the R and then the D train, and then the end, they all sort of share that track. And you really, I mean, you do think about those things, but when you're a passenger in those subways, you're pretty much stuck there. There's not much you can do. You know, if somebody wants to try and do something like this, so I'm glad they were able to get everybody off and it looks like fellow passengers were helping take care of folks, which people do in New York City. People are like that. Well, you know what, keep in mind, as I said earlier, New York City could things like this, it is a target rich environment, especially in the mass chance system. And in the morning rush hour evening rush hour, you have hundreds of thousands of people that ride those trains in and out of Manhattan. So are things like this possible? Do they happen from time to time? Yes. And most New Yorkers, listen, if you ride the tubes most New Yorkers, you know, they look around. They're looking, they're looking at people on the train. They're watching their back. You know, it's not that they want to. It's almost like you have to become you become accustomed to it. You know, it's a part of life. And in this case, we saw what happens when something like this goes down. I saw a lot of people taken off out of the subway system, but there were a lot of people that stayed behind. Some of which some of which I think is insane. I mean, they stood around just a photo. With their phones out taking video. But there were people there putting tourniquets on some of the victims stopping the blood on another guy. And that's what you see when things like this happen. Well, Bernie, I did a terrific job on newsmax this morning. We were carrying that live earlier and we appreciate your great insight into what's going on there. Thank you, sir. All right, Bernie kerik, former NYPD commissioner, great American patriot, and the guy, he knows what he's talking about. And so there's still a long way to go. I feel pretty confident that the NYPD is going to be able to get this guy. Whoever he is, but in the meantime, you've got to be careful. And he's right. I remember my apartment was about 8 miles. I lived in Brooklyn 8 miles to a Fox News headquarters, and I would take usually the bee or the D train. And some of the trains they operate on the same tracks. So you kind of know, but not all the trained stop at the same stop. So if you're riding the B train, that's an express train, and it's not going to stop at every single stop, but the in and the R do, and sometimes I would hop onto that enter the R train, so it's just kind of shocking when you hear that the end train was the target of this attack. And as Bernie kerik said they have yet to call it a terrorist attack, that leads me to believe that they either know who this guy is or they're just being cautious right now. And they don't want to alarm people. But everybody knows, you get on board those subways, you know, and he's right. Everybody looks around, because you don't want to you just don't want to be the victim of a crime. Folks since November of last year, the stock market has plummeted, gas prices through the roof, stock market volatile inflation, worse than it's ever been since the 1980s and then you throw in a war with Russia. The markets do not like instability..

"Right, I want to turn our attention back to a serious topic we've been following the story really for the entire show, since it happened early this morning, a gunman hurled us or lobbed some sort of a smoke bomb and then opened fire on a subway in the sunset park area of Brooklyn, New York, great to have with us on the patriot mobile news. The former police commissioner himself, Bernie kerik, Bernie, good to have you with us today. I know it's been pretty busy for you. Thanks, Todd. All right, Bernie, what is it that strikes you based on the information we now know what 16 people injured, there's a manhunt underway. This did not happen in a tourist area. What should we make of the info we now have? Well, I mean, look, nobody wants to speculate at this point, but just based on what we know, we have a male black that was about 5, 5 we had about a 180 pound stocky. Wearing what the police commissioner has now described as a green construction vest. Got onto the subway entered a car detonated a smoke grenade and immediately thereafter opened fire. He shot ten people, I think, 6 of them got off at the stop at the first stop. And then four people got off at the next stop, a stop later on another train. That being said, this investigation will go on for some time. Even if they take this guy into custody, which I'm sure they will do in short order. Within the New York City mass transit system, there's a number of cameras down in the tubes and there's a number of cameras outside. Also, you have cameras, vendors, residences outside that have ring cameras and other surveillance devices. So I'm sure within the next 24 hours, they'll have some IDs, some photos, some things like that that we'll be able to identify at least in picture form the suspect, and then they'll take the phones, they'll ping the all the phones that we're in that area. There's some information that this guy was lingering around that subway station, about two hours at a dance. I'm sure they'll hit the cell towers. They'll see who was out there two hours in advance, who was around the system at that time that are less than their pool of who they're looking for. There's a number of ways. They'll identify and catch this guy. But it's going to take a little time to get there. Very impressed with the conductors. If a female announcer, so the female conductor got that train into the station and was telling people to get off and it sounds like the police were there. In a pretty quick fashion and helped get people to safety..

"See, I think a lot of times when you get that aesthetic of like, I'm a boss B word. I'm a this, I'm a that no baby, but you can't cook. So I think what he's trying to say is he likes a strong woman, but he wants a woman who can also cook. Okay, well not every woman is some wonderful cook, okay? Also, going back, they be though. Listen, in my family, my mom cooks just fine, no problem. But my dad is a very talented cook and likes cooking. Right, but the grill. So not just the grill though. So men handle the grill. And then the women can handle, you know, the Julia Child stuff. No. He can do it all. I'm just saying. And he likes to do it. No, there's nothing wrong with it. I'm not just, I'm not saying there's something wrong with it. I'm just asking. Well, back in disappears ago, this isn't the first time he said something stupid like this. Literally a female reporter confronted him asked him a question, just like by the way, I used to work in sports that I did this and he laughed at her and he's like, it's funny to hear a female talk about football roots like this. It's funny. And I'm like, dude, it doesn't take women seriously. You don't think so. I think he doesn't take women seriously. You don't know when to be quiet. That's not me talking. You know it's right. This is his words, not mine. And listen, there you go, ladies. That's what he wants. And you know what? He's got a lot of money. And if you want to go for that, go for that. You do you. But no thanks. If you like to cook. If you like to cook. Pretty good gig. That's a great gig. But don't expect to give them any opinions. You don't know when to be quiet, you don't know how to allow a man to lead. This is what Cam Newton said on the podcast. I mean, there's a difference between like what he's saying, he wants somebody who's just gonna sit in the kitchen and stay quiet versus like the really obnoxious women that are like, I've seen him, okay? They wear the pants in the relationship. And it's not a pretty sight. It's not good. Cam and sister. On the show that he was not trying to beat up my queens. Yeah, okay. But he called, but he also called for men to start being men bro what does that mean though? Well, he answers that. That sucka. Okay, well you can't say that word all the way. It should not be rewarded. What does that mean? That sucka. I don't know. All right. TMZ says, as you can imagine, cam's comments did not go over well on social media. No. Many calling the word sexist and misogynistic, which words. Well, just the phrases. There's not really a specific I think he sounds like obnoxious. I don't think we're proud of men in the kitchen. As long as they're grilling, the men handle the grilling and the smoking of the meat. But what if they want to handle other things? Well, that's perfectly fine. If they want to make cakes as perfectly fine, I've got no problem with that. What if they're better at what if a particular guy is better at that than the woman in the woman's better at? I don't know. Working on the car or something. Oh yeah, he said it was funny to hear a female talk about running routes. Yeah, in football. In football. Yeah, because she asked him a question at a press conference with everybody else and he laughed at him. Oh, he lost a major sponsor. A yogurt company. Chobani? No, the other one. Is it? No, it's oik. Oh yeah, the Greek one. The Greek. Well, I think it's all Greek. Well, now there's great yogurt and regular yogurt, but that's another discussion for another. The Greeks do a better job. They just do their food's delicious. Anyways, you'll play it wasn't you apply. Is that okay, never mind. We're getting off track here. So cam apologized for no he apologized for talking smack about the female reporter. I remember that. But he has not so far apologized for his comments about women. He doesn't need to apologize. I think it's pretty obvious. Is that wrong for a guy though to want a woman who can make a sandwich? No, there's nothing wrong with that, but there is an issue with the fact that he's basically saying I want a woman to cook, shut up and not do anything else. That's what it sounds like to me. He wants a man that he wants a woman who will cater to a man's needs. But that's saying that it sounds like that's all he wants. You're framing this. I see how you're framing this. I'm not framing anything. For real. We're just having a conversation saying that no, of course, as a wife because I'm a wife. Of course I want to make my husband happy, but also. Do you make him a sandwich? I cook. Every day. I'm not judging. And I like to do it, and I'm happy to do it. And it just kind of works out that way. But there are things that he does for me too, and it sounds like mister Cam Newton's not offering much up, you know, on the table himself. There you go. I'm curious to hear from our callers on this. 8 four four 747 88 68. That's 8 four four 747 88 68. I have stepped in it today, everybody. By the way, just a reminder to all of our new listers in the heartland, give us a call if you make it on the air. You will receive a signed copy of my latest book, our daily biscuit devotions with a drawl, and that's just our way of saying welcome to the neighborhood and we are very excited to be on KQ a.m. now broadcasting in Wichita, Kansas and the phones are lighting up here. This is sort of entertaining. Coming up in just a moment though, we are going to check in with Bernie kerik, a former NYPD police commissioner. He was there on 9 11 when all of that went down a Bernie great American patriot and the guy knows law enforcement like nobody's business. We're going to be checking with checking in with Bernie. The latest information we have manhunt underway in New York City, looking for a black man, 5 foot 5, a heavy set black man, 5 foot 5, and he was wearing an MTA, which is the metro transit authority, a shirt, and he is armed. The governor of New York says that they are dealing with an active shooter situation in New York City. All right, we're taking a break here, folks. 8 four four 747 88 68. That is our telephone number. This is the Todd surge radio show. All right, so can't be a North Carolina says I am misrepresenting damn Newton. Kathy, good to have you with us, and I want you to tell me how have I misrepresented Cam Newton here. Well, I feel you went way overboard and representing him really negatively and he did say you left out part of what he said. He said the perfect woman for him. Now that means that anyone has her, she knows. She knows cam's priorities. So that's the heart. If she wants to accept that, but he did not say he expected all women. No, no, no. No. Look, absolutely. I was just curious asking grace baker, who's the resident female on the show, Kathy. How she felt about that? Yeah, yeah. And I love grace's voice. She has a wonderful voice and I'm not listening to your show a lot, but I am straight up Democrat, but I think grace has a great voice. Well, she did call him crazy. She did. I heard her Kathy. The biggest Cam Newton fan ever. I picked up on that, Kathy, I did. All I could say is Cam Newton is out on his own on this one. Well, I'm just saying, I heard what he said, and here's another thing, I think representing KM pause as they have positively is also option two because I have lots of many of his videos where he shows up to make his girls breakfast. You know, so he's a good guy. He's a good guy, and like I said, I may be close to his. That's great. All right, Kathy. But I listen to you. You're so kind and Kathy. Thank you for that, and we love we especially love when Democrats call in. So thanks for doing that Kathy. And thanks for listening to us out there in North Carolina. Okay. Thank you. All right, you're welcome, there, Kathy. She's big Cam Newton fan. All.

I was scheduled to be on newsmax this morning and we were blown out because of the breaking news from New York City, but the focus of the reporting is that a number of school districts around America are now reporting a steep decline in the number of public school students. Now, there's a raging debate as to why that is. I contend that more moms and dads have decided, wait a second, we don't want our kids learning about this crap. And we're pulling our kid out of the public school. We're going to send them to a private school. We're going to homeschool.

And even going back to the Boy Scouts of America, these are established American traditions that have gone by the wayside and I'm curious to know from your estimation, why do you think that is? I think really Todd, what we're seeing is the veil is being pulled back on this whole movement, trans normativity, homo normativity, whatever you want to call it, the idea is the disintegration of the American family. It's not to have equality in boy scouts. It's actually to destroy boy scouts, which they accomplished doing that. When you look at Walt Disney corporation, it's the second or third largest media company in the world. The market cap is $238 billion with a B, when you consider what's happening, they have a huge mouthpiece, but it's not just activism. There's something far more pernicious far more evil going on Todd. What do you think that is? I really do believe that this is a spiritual battle. You can't call it anything other than that. And we're seeing, here it is. We're in holy week. This is resurrection week. We're going into the Passover, and then obviously the lord's day on Sunday, Easter Sunday, recognizing that Jesus came to the world to conquer Senate conquer death. And I think now more than ever, America needs saving. And it's not going to come from a president. It's going to come from the lord Jesus Christ. This is a spiritual battle. We have to take this on. And I think and this is a challenge even facing Christian higher education. And I want to explain why, because you guys, I mean, at liberty, you're turning out God fearing patriots, people who are standing up and defending the constitution. The challenge is that a lot of these kids are coming out of public schools and they have a lot of them have been brainwashed and there's really no other kind way to say it. They've just been brainwashed into embracing this agenda, which is why I suspect they're starting to teach kindergartners preschoolers about these sex classes, sex lessons. Yes, absolutely. I'll just tell you two things. Vladimir Lenin famously once said, give me your children for four years and the seeds that I have sown will never be uprooted. That's scary. When you think about cultural Marxism, you think about the long march through the institutions. That's exactly why they're trying to groom and I will use that word properly when you talk to children about sex and you desperately do not want their parents to know about it. That is called grooming. Grooming children from 5 years old to 8 years old. That is absolutely insane. And that's what's being tried. Of course, HB 1557 just passed in Florida. That needs to be passed in every state which restores parental rights within education. So we need to be, we need to be clear about what the threat is that's coming. Here at Liberty University, kids are walking from private schools or walking from home schools and also from public education. We'll take any child from anywhere. But at the end of the day, the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only thing Todd that gives us hope that can actually turn back this tide in this country. And Ryan even that is coming under attack. I mean, you're looking at, I mean, they have been very effective. And I call them sex and gender revolutionaries. But I think they're very close to completely neutralizing the Southern Baptist conventions influence in the culture. That has been happening over the past couple of years now, where a lot of churches, not just southern Baptists, but a lot of evangelical churches have chosen not to get involved in this. They don't want to offend people or the pastors don't want to become targets in the pulpit. Yeah, they're feigning neutrality in a world that has no grounds for being neutral. It is an either or reality. Either you're going to be a pastor that stands up boldly in the pulpit and proclaims the whole council of God all of scripture is God breathed is useful for teaching, rebuke and correcting and training and righteousness. If you're a pastor today, this is a time for boldness. This is a time for courage. You can not mince words. The reality is many of these denominations are under attack, and in seminaries, the training grounds, that's why it's so it's so critical right now that they make peace with their future cancellation. That they recognize that they're entering into a world that will no longer give them or grant them the respect or the freedom to say everything that needs to be.

"Start. I see terrible story out of New York City. More details coming out now. Police say that the gunman actually set off a smoke bomb and then started shooting on that subway train. Patrick berry 41, this is from The New York Times. Patrick Barry 41 said he was waiting at the 25th street station one stop north when an R train arrived at around 8 30. He and his three year old daughter boarded but the train did not move. Quote, then suddenly from the front of the train, I heard people screaming, run, run, run, go, go, go. Then all these people came sprinting out past our car, and I just felt like, oh my God, this is a stampede. People started pushing out from behind, so I grabbed my daughter and we ran two, one teenager who identified himself as had a hole in his track pants that he said came from a bullet. The New York Times says a uniform police officer asked passengers to call 9-1-1 because his radio wasn't working. Well, you know what? How about funding the freaking police officers so they have working equipment out there. Unbelievable. This story from Memphis, Tennessee, on Sunday, early early in the morning. There was a gunfight, and three people were shot. One person was killed. It was around what two 30 in the morning. Now this is from television station, WREG. And now the mother of a of the dead man, 26 years old, so the 26 year old had 5. I'm sorry, he's the father of four kids and one on the way. So you've got a dad, 26 years old, he's got 5 kids, he's a local rapper, and he was shot and killed. Police were caught in the crossfire, and they opened fire, and now the mom is actually blaming the police officers. According to the police, officers were present when two groups of men started to shoot outside the club three people were injured. During the exchange, officers also fired shots. And so I guess the mother of the dead man is saying that the police were responsible. She says they were there on the side of their car playing with women. You know, I've seen that happen, by the way. On Beale street, where it's a popular tourist destination, and you see the same thing happen in New York City, you got the tourists and they want to get pictures with the cops on horseback, or you want to get pictures of the beautiful scantily clad ladies on the police car, which happens all the time at Beale street. I'm not sure why people are surprised by that. But she said police were not properly monitoring the club. She said her son who was unarmed was in innocent bystander, but the sun's 19 year old cousin was critically injured as well. Police took a family friend into custody, but the mother says he was only firing back at some unknown shooter in self defense good lord. But it's the police department's fault..

"Got to leave it there. We appreciate the insight you've given us. We're going to be checking in with Bernie Carrick later on in the program. And let's just hope they catch this guy. Thank you very much. Let's hope so. All right, New York City councilman Joe borelli, everybody on the crazy news, coming out of New York City. And I think it's just a reminder that there is great evil out there and you've got to be on guard. You have to be prepared. You've got to, you've got to know what to do in the event something like this happens. And that is the responsibility of all of us. You know, a lot of kids and I didn't see a lot of kids in the videos of the attack. But a lot of children ride the subway to and from school every day. I mean, that is not an uncommon thing to see second, third, fourth 5th graders, young kids on the subway, going to school. That's just how they do things in New York City. It sounds weird. If you don't live in a large city like that, but that's sort of a way of life. And we certainly want to be praying for the people that were injured, 16 people now confirmed injured, ten of those people were shot and the suspect at this hour is still on the loose. All right, folks, we're going to take a quick break and regroup here. We do not know if this is an act of international or domestic terrorism. And I suspect we will find that out, I can tell you that New York City has been dealing with one of the worst crime surges and crime waves since before Rudy Giuliani took office. So this is this is not a good situation. New York City is a dangerous place, and that's why we've got to be careful. Gotta be careful. All right, 8 four four 747 88 68. That's our phone number. We have videos up to the minute stories over on Todd starns dot com. We'll be right back America. With the political pressure of the left and the woke mob that is the Democrat party. Our society has ultimately become controlled by the cancel culture elites. Since when had the founders of our constitution, the American flag, Dr. Seuss, and many other things become anti American. There's never been a better time in our nation's history to stand up against the woke mob and fight back. And you can do that with this exclusive offer I'm giving to my listeners for a limited time only. Now is your chance to win a signed photo by president Trump himself. That's right, not only will you be taking a stand against a radical left, you'll be entering to win a piece of history. All you have to do is text the word photo to 55 four O four today to enter. That's photo to 55 four O four. Join me in standing up for president Trump and canceling the radical left once and for all. Paid for by the national Republican senatorial committee. All right, folks, welcome back to the time stern's radio show. You know the other crazy story. We've been following. The inflation numbers are out and folks, it's just absolutely insane, and I'm.

"New York City safe. And again, folks, on the Patreon newsmaker line, New York City councilman Joe barely, Joe. We also understand some of the schools in that area around the subway line were put on lockdown. I have to imagine that was out of just as a precaution, but still you've got an armed gunman on the loose somewhere in Brooklyn, New York right now. And we hope that's not the case. I'm trying to, as we talk over the phone, I'm trying to listen to what the governor was. Well, as a matter of fact, Joe, if you'll hang with us for just a second, let's go ahead and bring in that audio. Maybe we can listen along and Joe will get you to weigh in here. Let's listen live to our coverage from our news partners over at newsmax TV. That's what we crave. It sense of stability and normalcy. And this is what the mayor and I are going to continue to work toward. And I thank the partners. The brave people, the MTA, the first ones who had the sense to drivers of the train to leave the station to make sure no more victims could be heard. The NYPD. Watch. Stay police. Everyone involved in this has one purpose. And there's a stop the insanity of these fries. You'll hear now from our department, I want to thank them for being there to help us if you use a volatile situation. All right, let me dip in here. And we'll hear from the fire department, but Joe, they're telling us the updated numbers now 16 people injured and now we're being told there were no active devices discovered on the scene. That's an interesting use of the word. No active devices. Maybe let's dump that go back in now. We've got the fire department speaking, let's see if they can help us out. And that is what I'm going to continue to do is the governor of the state of New York working with our local partners right here. Thank you. Governor. Good afternoon. This morning the E and Y received reports of gunshot victims in the subway. Thanks to their quick response, we were able to treat 16 patients. Ten of those patients were suffering from gunshot wounds at this time and 5 of them are in critical but stable condition in our local hospitals. Yes, we have 16 total patients. Ten of them are suffering from gunshot wounds and 5 of them are in critical but stable conditions at this time. I'm going to pass it over to the MTA for an update on our subway. Okay, let's jump back in here and Joe the latest headlines now 16 patients ten of those were shot and taken to the hospital. That's about all we know right now. That's all we know in addition, we do know that the suspect is confirmed as still on the loose meeting he is not in custody. So I think we should make clear that the decision to lock down the neighborhood schools was certainly made in the right vein and probably is a precaution that still should exist. But yeah, I mean, 16 people in a mass shooting situation is no joke. And I imagine the people that weren't shot might have been injured by just the sheer momentum of people fleeing a very tight and controlled space in addition to smoking elation. And pointed out that there was no devices still there, but that certainly confirms that some sort of device, some explosive device caused all the smoke that happened. Absolutely. And the video that we have obtained from the scene, a photo you can see that on our website Todd starns dot com certainly seems to indicate, as you said, some sort of a smoke device had in fact been activated. All right, Joe, we've.

"Know. 8 four four 747 88 68, that's our toll free telephone number that's 8 four four 747 88 68. One of the other big stories we are looking at and we're going to get to is Biden, which is now simply out of control. And it is a mess out there. And we're going to give you the latest details. People are suffering, folks. That's all there is to it. It is just a brutal situation out there financially for much of the country. But I want to put a pin in that for just a moment because now we have New York City councilman Joe borelli on our patriot mobile newsmaker line, Joe always good to have you with us, but what a horrible situation unfolding in New York City right now. Yes, a terrible tragedy trying to put together exactly what happened as a matter of fact, press conference starting by the mayor's office and governor's office is just beginning to sort of address what actually occurred on the end line this morning in the sunset park neighborhood of Brooklyn. And I was telling her listeners, Joe, and I understand that subway line at services the NR and D train. And I used to take the D train in a further down the line or further up the line rather in downtown Brooklyn. But this is not a tourist destination where this happened. No, as a matter of fact, this is a very working class neighborhood. Where the shooting happened along the Ann and R line was at the 56th street station between the 56 three station and the 36th street station, which means that there are very few stations where this person could have gotten on. Now, the neighborhood there, as you pointed out, is working class means sunset park is pretty split down the middle between Asian Americans, a lot of recent immigrants and sort of an older, more entrenched Puerto Rican and Dominican neighborhood on the waterfront side. Going back down the line a bit more, you have the neighborhood of bay ridge, which is predominantly Irish and Italian and now a lot of people from Middle East and Syria. So it really is a microcosm of working class New York and at this time of day, it would have been and it was packed with people just trying to get from their homes to their jobs. Joe, we understand there's a manhunt underway. The guy was wearing an MTA uniform. Some sort of a gas mask. So it certainly whatever whatever this is, it was planned. We just don't know if this was an act of domestic terrorism or international terrorism. Yes. And I suspect the NYPD has a pretty good lock on where the person got into the train system and where they've exited. New York City is pretty well wired and well camera as we know. But all the videos we've seen on some of the national news stations have indicated that yes, this is definitely something that was pre planned, bringing a gas mask on a train certainly indicates that bringing some sort of a smoke device or a smoke bomb certainly backs that notion up. Again, I would have to imagine that with a police department as a robust as the NYPD. You have to remember, there are more people in uniform in the NYPD than there are people in the Royal Navy of Great Britain. So we have a very robust Intel division and surveillance division and they will be able to access so many of the cameras, so many of the places along the route where this person might be passed. And Joe, you're talking about millions of people every day, riding that subway, there is no way to screen everybody that goes through a turnstile. So I know this may sound odd, but I'm surprised we have not seen more attacks like this. But again, to your point, we have a lot of security down there. We've seen oftentimes, run of the mill attacks. We hate to say it like that where people have been pushed on fracs. People have been mugged or even shot and sort of gang conflicts or robberies gone bad. But yes, we've been spared to a large extent from this type of mass shooting attack, despite the fact that I'll give you a great statistic, 3.6 million people took the New York City transit just last Tuesday. So there is a tremendous amount of people larger than the populations of many states, which ride the New York City subway. The MTA actually transports more people per day in every single other transit system in the United States combined. So we are lucky and we should count our blessings and we also should credit the work of the NYPD and some of the federal partners that keep.

"50 years later, grandma's bar is long gone. It's a medical center now. And the Sears in Brooklyn is heading down the same road. Now the end of an era, the last Sears department store in New York City is shutting its doors and it is opening Eleanor Roosevelt at its opening Eleanor on a cold gray day in November of last year. I met up with Joanne and Richie. Hi. How are you? Good. Hello, Richie. There were big yellow signs on the chain link fence that surrounds the parking lot. Thank you for blowout sale. Nothing held back. Everything must go. Oh my God, it's like empty in here. All this stuff has been moved up here. A lot of the stuff from dancing. It's a couple weeks before the official closing date, but it kind of feels like they might run out of merchandise before then. They're even selling the store fixtures. And then we had a little area over here that they had in some ways. In some way that would go up to the third floor and stock would be. That's when Sean hid in the dumbwaiter and scared the out of some of the salesmen in the hardware apartment. We remember all the department numbers. Really? The department's 34, the hardware was 9, paint was 30. What useless information that stays in our brains for this long, right? 50 years later. And that's where the area cashier was. So there was a booth there, and I used to ring up all the tickets for the big, big ticket items. Right here. Right over there. And right next to me was tobacco, believe it or not. There was a whole area so cigarettes and tobacco. That was cataloged, routine and I are having an argument about where catalog was, but I'm sure that. Over there, no matter what you win. We'll see. We'll ask somebody. Right over here. The vacuum is there's only a handful of items left in the store. Still, Joanne finds something to buy. A box of hair dye. Yeah, I mean, $3. I mean, I could definitely press up a deal. I'm embarrassed. As she checks out, Richie can't help himself. He's the kind of guy who talks to everyone. Including the teenage cashiers bringing us up. We worked here 50 years ago. Was saying goodbye to the 50 years ago. They met here. Yes. If you didn't hear that, one of the cashiers said, my parents too. Your parents met here? Really? Wow. Wow. See there's something about one. You know what I'm gonna give you 81 cents because I haven't. I can't believe your parents that did your parents made here too. They found it all time. For Richie and Joanne, Sears was so many beginnings. The beginning of their careers. Richie went on to work for the navy, doing inventory logistics, stuff he'd learned how to do at Sears. And Joanne says that she decided to get her PhD in psychology after dealing with so many interesting people in the customer service department. Today she's a psychologist. Sears was the beginning of some of their deepest friendships. The weekend before I spoke with Richie and Joanne, a bunch of the Sears friends got together at Steve's house. They got all dressed up, drank wine, had such a good time that they ended up spending the night instead of driving home. And of course, it was the beginning of Richie and Joanne's 40 year marriage. Where would we be if it wasn't for Sears? Where the hell would we be? We'd be like, not knowing each other. We wouldn't be knowing you. We'd be really right. If not for Sears, they wouldn't know me. Because Richie and Joanne are my boyfriend's parents. So in an alternate universe, if there's no Sears, there's no Richie and Joanne. And if there's no Richie and Joanne, they never have a son. Mike. And if there's no mic, I'm single. I guess I owe this Sears a lot too. The store may be closed, but Richie and Joanne still carry a part of Sears with them. And I mean that literally. Back when they first got engaged, Joanne was kind of a hippie. Didn't want an engagement ring. How often did I say? She always said I'll get you one. You just tell me I'll buy you an engagement ring. You know, what a frivolous waste of money. I don't need this now, you know, whatever. We went back to Sears when it was closing. 50 years later, we went to the jewelry department, which was one of the departments I used to work into. And they had like two or three engagement rings in the display case. And I tried one on it and it fit me perfectly. And I said to Ritchie, I think we got to do this. Now I have a diamond ring with from Sears. At this part of it probably is that it is what it was 80% off. Going out of business sale. So it was 80%. Nothing. That's what makes Joanne happy as an 80% off. The last Sears in Brooklyn closed in November of 2021. It's not clear what will happen to the building. But the art deco facade is landmarked, so that's not going anywhere. Special thanks to Richie and Joanne for sharing their story. Our podcast is a co production of Atlas obscura and witness stocks.

"york city" Discussed on The Breakdown with NLW
"New York has also obviously been one of the more aggressive states in terms of enforcement actions. The New York attorney general had a settlement earlier in the year with tether and just last month ordered Celsius and nexo to shut down while investigating three other firms. Now law enforcement isn't necessarily a bad thing, but frankly, all of this adds up to New York, the center of the traditional finance world, not being particularly hospitable for this new area of finance. It is understandable then that when the New York mayoral race started, many in crypto were excited about the possibilities, in particular, the possibilities for an Andrew Yang victory. Andrew Yang has long been an outspoken proponent of Bitcoin, including during his presidential run. In February, he tweeted, as mayor of New York City, the world's financial capital, I would invest in making the city a hub for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Now it pretty quickly became clear that this race wasn't Yang's to win. He simply couldn't get support and his subsequently gone on to found a new third party called forward. For what it's worth, crypto and crypto adoption is a major pillar and platform of the forward party. However, as so often happens in politics, some of the better ideas of the vanquished get adopted into the victors platform. And while the cynical take is that that's just to consolidate followers, the more optimistic slant is that sometimes even politicians recognize that other people have good ideas, and they want to make them their own. In either case, in June, then front running candidate for the democratic nomination and former cop Eric Adams mentioned Bitcoin as well. On the eve of the democratic primary, he said I'm going to promise you in one year, you're going to see a different city. We're going to become the center of life science, the center of cybersecurity. The center of self-driving cars, drones, the center of bitcoins. So what was driving that? Well, on the one hand, you have to think, of course, there was a goal to unite the party, including extending an invitation to the Yankees, right? This is a classic political move. There were also a couple notable crypto donors on Adam's roster, including Brock pierce. What's more from a campaign perspective, Adams had been running on a promise to not only fight crime but to promote economic prosperity. Coincidence columnist David Morris wrote about this a few weeks later. In short, Adam seems to be more focused on well paying jobs in a vital economy than on changes to the status quo of financial regulation. In many ways, this is hugely bullish for the sector, a sign that crypto is stealing some limelight from Silicon Valley as acidic Doc for innovation and growth. And New Yorkers were eager for that message thanks to an unemployment rate of 10.9% in May, far above the national rate of 5.9%. That's probably thanks above all to the loss of tourism, which is a huge driver of the New York economy during the coronavirus pandemic. It's also a meaningful signal locally given the 2019 progressive backlash against plans to build an Amazon headquarters in the borough of queens, which had its justifications, but was seen by some as anti jobs. Atoms is more of a centrist than those anti Amazon activists, and is aimed mostly at appealing to blue collar New Yorkers. Much of his platform focuses on small business, but the nod to tech is part of that larger promise of more and better jobs. Anyone who listens to this show regularly will know my thoughts on Bitcoin and economic prosperity. And so I was thrilled when on July 6th Eric Adams was officially named the New York mayor candidate for the Democrats, which effectively mean that he was named New York mayor. However, that wasn't it for mayoral candidates in New York City talking about crypto..

"Buses move faster and more reliably is central to shifting. Not just to show when we talk. Sometimes we can slip into this notion like. We're shifting a lot of folks from buses from cars buses when there's not two and a half million rides on new york city buses each and every day right people people all over. The city rely on on the buses as as their main source of transportation where they get to get to to a subway and improving improving bus services really a central to to to all of our all of our climate goals in all of our. It's such a great example of by taking action on climate. You're improving people's daily life right. If your bus comes more frequently more reliable you can get home. You can hang out with their kids. So so yes. I think you know. Obviously the the types of transformations that dot has been able to to do in the past few years in particular from the fourteenth street bus way to bus waves that are being introduced all over the city. I was on a hundred eighty first street earlier this year. Though some great stuff happening in jamaica in our travel new A template and a framework. And and you know. I think the mayor has done an enormous amount on buses. I think there's a huge opportunity to a whole lot. More particularly with with dot and an mta that are really aligned to to improve the quality of service and so. I think you're absolutely right that it's a huge place. Where we're there's there's a lot of work to be done in a lot of opportunity. And i think it's it's it's there to be seized. What does it look like. I mean you you have this. You have this great perch. You're you know you're you're helping craft policy. Been helping really think through the right solutions. I'm sure it's it's wonderful at times in frustrating times in all that stuff but you had your you know your policymaker. You're you're someone who helps set the vision so for a vision moving forward for the ideal york city you know sort of transit situation. What what is the. What's the best sort of sweeping policy. Ways to reduce car usage make buses attractive and efficient increase people's abilities ride bikes safely and use those to commute for those who can What's the what's the sort of Wishlist vision. And i think i think these these are these are pieces we've articulated and there's I think we need to have a high quality protected by lane network that people who don't consider themselves cyclists feel totally comfortable and fine hopping on a bike and getting a lot of different places all over the city..

"That's a perfect segue. There's many advocates experts legislators who love the local all ninety seven. They have some of these questions that i just asked about. You know what about the smaller buildings and you know how do you get rid to ensure compliance that that you don't even you know as you said that you get two zero finds being paid because either. That's not an option or on a resume but the next frontier seems to be this bill and the city council. I think it's twenty three seventeen speaker. The city council just said he favors it banning gas hookups in new development where the administration so the mayor has has said going back that he thinks it makes sense to have a date certain after which there would be only after which we wouldn't use fossil fuels in our building. So we're broadly supportive of this. We really look forward to to working with the city council to get this done. I think if you look at the the state and the federal level and you look at the direction. The industry is going. I think everybody agrees that the buildings of the future or ones that. Don't rely on fossil fuels. i think that No new york city really is poised to be a leader in developing and building. These new buildings and and these aren't pie in the sky. Things we see buildings right now being built in the five boroughs that don't rely on on fossil fuel combustion And and it's really exciting. I think i think that's definitely the direction we should be going. And and the mayor mayor supports putting an end date. After which we wouldn't we wouldn't have fossil fuel use in large buildings particularly for you know for for the the heating and cooling systems..

"Something you don't like try and come up with like a genuine regulatory framework that balances what you think that the public's interests are one aspect of that should be trying to respect our data rights as human beings. Because right now our data is being sold resold for hundreds of billions of dollars a year and cost is not just economic. It's actually in human agency. it's in public trusts. Were getting packaged ourselves and sold to various advertisers in ways that also undermine the public good and our government has been completely absent on this. I think california's privacy. Laws are some of the best in the country that the newest rule is for there to actually be a dedicated privacy protection agency in california. It's almost like some kind of data cops It makes me very happy. I hope they get a really cool uniform and schedule but other states should be following suit and the feds should be following suit. California actually is ahead of the urban and what about with respect to our politics. How do you think we could improve a system. That is now. It's hard to characterize how Ramshackle it appears first of all the fact that we can't seem to hold an election that the country can trust the outcome of. How do we even approach a a national conversation about improving our politics entered and the the actual the infrastructure that allows us to deliver political results. Going forward sam. I'm so glad you asked this. Because i actually worked on a book on this topic. That's gonna come out in the league summer. Who knows but i am not. I'll i'll send you the manuscript because it's been on my mind but i'll let you listeners. Know what one of the key takeaways is which is ranked choice voting We need to get rank. Choice voting adopted around the country because it will help reduce polarization. It will free legislators up from the fear of being primary which right now is guidance. And very extreme decisions right now over. Eighty percents of elections are predetermined in terms of whether it's going to be democratic or republican. And so most voters don't actually have a genuine choice in their representations if you've ranked choice voting it decreases as negative campaigning. It gets rid of the spoiler effects so low and can be accused of wasting your vote. Adra maybe may be explain how the ranked choice voting works. Could i think many people won't be familiar with the logic of it. Oh yeah. I'm sorry. I got so excited. You know york barrel racist rank choice voting for the first i do so. This is very relevant. But the way right choice. Voting works is that the winner has to get over fifty percent of people's votes which use that as a starting point and the second thing is that you can rank more than one candidate as some that. You'd like to see win so use the mayoral race as an example. Let's say there are seven candidates. You can rank Me first and then scott stringer a second and in my while third and then what happens is when they count all of our votes if no one gets up to fifty point one percent at the top line then they get rid of the bottom most candidate and then they reassigned that candidate's votes based upon that person's second choice or the that entities. You know second choice votes. So that person's votes have reassigned and you repeat the process over and over again until someone gets past fifty point one percent so in this way you can actually both whoever want as your first choice and have no fear that it's somehow we're going to result in someone. You detest winning because you can just rank your second choice first and then if you're a person ends up one of the bottom performers devos slow through your second choice right wishes a huge deal because the the ralph nader effect is a problem and To be able to completely circumvent that issue of there being a spoiler wait a vote would Change a lot. You know if nothing else changed. And here's the wild thing. Is that in twenty five states around the country you can actually activate a referendum ranked voting simply through a ballot initiative that requires a number of signatures and in some states. It's actually a relatively modest number of signatures to states have already adopted. Rank choice voting and open primaries in those two states are main in alaska there. three states. That have valid initiatives where all it takes animated citizens and a bunch of signatures and you could actually transform democracy for the better. It's very exciting that this is something that has enormous potential to decrease the polarization. That is making us less less functional. Well andrew. I will let you go. I wish you a swift recovery from covid and a thoroughly successful campaign. And i look forward to on the other side of a vaccine being in a crowded restaurant with you when you were mayor of the city of new york. It's a date i will host you. We will go to whatever show that that you had a hankering to see. We'll have the best of cuisine in the world. and then we'll have the after dinner drink. At gracie mansion to to celebrate the renaissance of newark city. Like this is a beautiful vision sam. I'm duckling on a fight for something. Well yes thank you so..
"york city" Discussed on Making Sense with Sam Harris
"Thank you for having me that. This is going to be like a refuge up a conversation. I think i mean most people listen to you because you make us smarter wiser more light and i feel like i could use some of that energy a while. I hope to provide. But i'm very happy to talk to your first book before we jump into all the topics of interest. How are you feeling you. You caught covert right. Yes i have coded. I was hoping for the sympathy. San's the suffering in it turns out. I got what share of the suffering where i've had the flu version. So just imagine a very nasty food with some added wrinkles. But i'm on the mend and i should be out and about in the next number of days. Hopefully how long has it been. When did you first get symptoms. I i got symptoms last week. Dende so we're recording this on wednesdays i would spend about ten days now and The symptoms started out. Mild and i was hopeful that i would skate. And just be holed up in my room. But then i've had about a week of real petit in cheaper and flu like experiences. Yeah well i guess All things considered. I'm still sounds lucky but starting hear it you know. I had an oximeter. Sam if people know this but it's so helpful this to be able to take your what oxygen level at any moment because when you're you're there you're not sure how you're fairing this check in the newly on by so anyone listening to this. If you wanna wanna be prepared to get a block. Senator measure admit tool. It's only i think twenty bucks or so. Yeah you can get those on amazon or there was a time when you get those amazon assume. They're they've been mass produced at this point so andrew you are running for office of mayor in what is very likely the most important city on earth. I love the idea of you. Being mayor of new york. Let me just get my biases on the table and It's amazing to consider new york being a kind of laboratory to experiment. In in how we reboot society at this point that it seems like so many things are up for review an interest how we function collectively and the idea that someone with your Creative and Modern take on things could be steering. The fairly large ship of of new york. City is just. It's amazing to consider so some wishing the best of luck brother. Well as i do. Sam like i do think that this is like a continuation of the arc that frankly you help launch. I could two thousand eighteen. When i was an unlikely presidential candidate and we made a really powerful case around to advance humanize the economy that i dare say ended up becoming mainstream popular wisdom. Where as we're having this conversation. The last i checked. Eighty five percent of americans four casualties during the pandemic and a majority of for tax relief in perpetuity otherwise known as a basic income. And i'm really eager to take principles that i fought for national level and apply them in new york city around fact-based governance and trying to get bureaucracies to work in a more modern and technologically proficient fashion. I can't wait to roll up my sleeves. Get some incredible people on board and try to steer new york city in a positive direction and this race is also different from the presidential race matt. It's very like the front runner of the presidential so so there's an enormous opportunity here that i hope we take advantage out was a what's new york like. Now i mean we're still in the midst of this pandemic. i know you're probably doing a better job than california enrolling out the vaccine. But we're still under the shadow of this thing what's happening. New york city is badly wounded sam. It's been devastated by the coronavirus on multiple levels and most of your listeners. Know me as a numbers guy. Some of the numbers that reflect how bad it's been a new york city over twenty. Seven thousand lives have been lost over half million of been infected over seven. Hundred thousand jobs have been lost. The unemployment rate is over twice the national average in part because the city is missing sixty million tourists. Who used to support over three hundred thousand jobs. Midtown manhattan commercial. Buildings are eighty two percent unoccupied. Subway ridership is down seventy percent. Violent crimes arising three hundred. Thousand new yorkers have left the city and in terms of filing for change of address forms and and just relocated. So there's a lot of pain and suffering right now. Over ten thousand small businesses restaurants have closed and more joining them all the time. This is a city that derives based upon the coming together in large numbers on people. Visiting on people eating out of every night and a lot of those things aren't happening right now so the it's have been really painful for many many nations and individuals and families here. I know it's bound in california as well But i do think. New york city has special dependence on people feeling like they can come together in large numbers. The i it seems to me that it's really a perfect storm. There with respect to a specific variables of density and dependence on tourism and retail and office space going on occupied and just the weather right there many places in the country where restaurants can start serving outdoors before they they open indoors and and i know you guys tried that but in the dead of winter. It doesn't work very well. Let's go through these topics somewhat systematically. 'cause i'd like to get your take on each the retail office. Space problem eighty two percent unoccupied. One thing that worries me is that there's the prospect that our our habits have changed enough under covid with remote work in particular that conceivable that that office space will go on occupied not because covert has lingered but because habits have changed is that you think that's possible or likely or how do you. How do you view using all the space in new york. If people's attitudes toward remote work have undergone a durable change. I think we're in the midst of acing efficient cultural shifts. I think organizations are going to change how they schedule in person meetings and having people in the office. I do think that there are a couple of forces that have come in different ways. Sam where right now pre covid. There was a tendency for companies to pile employees on top of each other in your as well because it was very expensive office space. So you'd say hey guess what guys like you know slam you into cubicles and bullpens and have people in very close quarters so i think there are going to be shifts in both directions. I believe that some of this space will likely have to change. Its express purpose. But i do not think it'd be realistic for everyone to say. Look things are going to go back to the way they were in terms of people using off the space the same way and frankly in some cases paying the same premium that they were paying there has to be very significant adaptation even as you're trying to accelerate the comeback. We definitely.
