Meet the Press' Chuck Todd Is Propaganda Operative for the Left
"I am a constant And relentless critic of Chuck Todd on Meet the Press. The Sunday shows are propaganda operations for the left. And the Democrat Party. They typically have a rhino or some kind of Republican there to offset the host and two or three other guests. But it's obvious where they're coming from.

Children of Immigrants Are Being Taught To Hate Our Country
"Are coming into this country as immigrants. They're being taught to hate our country. The fact that they or their parents escaped the cultures in the countries. Obviously from which they came. To come to this country, presumably for a better life. Means that we, the American citizen who's here. Have a right to expect allegiance to our country. And support for the culture, the most diverse culture on the face of the earth by the way. We cannot survive. Balkanized in tribal lives like this, where people bring their own cultural hate. Into this country. And then intend to do what with it. We'll conquer the other cultures. They don't want diversity. They won't control. They want compliance. They want adherence. This is a disgrace. The school board member The fact that she was elected is a disgrace. And the fact that the rest of the school board members won't do a damn thing about it because most if not all number of Democrats Tells you all you need to know. The Democrat Party is the Is the sieve through which this is occurring nationally statewide and on local school boards. The teachers union. As I've talked about now, for a long time, the National Education Association American Federation for Teachers I don't have any allegiance to this country. I didn't say the teachers. I said the union. They don't have any allegiance to this country. They demonstrated it last year during the virus, and they demonstrated now. And the fact that she campaigned for Bernie Sanders in a big way. I should tell you a lot. Again about the Democrat Party. Bernie Sanders has looked at it. You know, he's an old nice enough guy. He's a dangerous Communist. That's what he is.
Calling out Crony Capitalism by BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors, Sen. Bernie Sanders
"Responding to your invitation for left the call about the the L N leader who's behaving like a capitalist. Yeah, please do Okay, I agree with your criticism, but I think it's trivial. My criticism of her as a Marxist, I think has profound. The reason that your I think your criticism is trivial. Is because in exposing her hypocrisy, you're showing that using that, actually no more hypocritical than conservative businessman who chased government purchase orders. I never heard of one turning one down because it will increase the national debt. And I never heard what was one turning one down because it will grow govern. Have you Okay, Jim? Fair enough. That's fair criticism and I do appreciate what you're in Reno, you said. I'm in Henderson. And that's my trivia. Okay, if you want to hear the profound markets wait, wait. Hold on, because we're we don't want to cut you off, and I have a break coming up in about a minute. But I want to counter that. I don't agree with you at all. What we're talking about here is allegiance and fidelity to principles. Conservatives like myself. Call out crony capitalism all the time, Jim. Matter of fact, we even have a name for it. You know what it is? Crony capitalism. Some people call it crap. It'll is, um I prefer crony capitalism because that's not actually capitalism and capitalism really isn't an ISM. Capitalism is effectively an agreement on a price instead of instead of rationing, the ability to trade your labor for a wage and the ability to own private property. I believe in those principles for you and me. So conservatives suggesting somehow conservatives, um give a wink and a nod to crony capitalism is inauthentic, And that's not a genuine criticism because it's not true. No real conservative, I know puts a head nod to that. Secondly, the woman claims to be a Marxist and claims to have principles as well. But doesn't live her life according to those principles and criticizes others who live by alternate principles like capitalism, So I don't get what your criticism is. We were basically what I'm getting at here is we have fidelity to our cause. Yet Marxist don't have Fidelity, either. There is. Bernie Sanders owns three homes.
A Liberal Perspective on the Hypocrisy of BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors
"This story is pretty fascinating. You have this Patrice Cullors, right? She she sat on tape is no dispute about it that she's a Marxist organizer said on a cut. We played before you know, she hasn't spoke, and it uses mouse type principles for organizing. I mean, isn't that kind of hypocritical? Then accumulating a million dollar portfolio putting a fence around your house? I mean, that seems kind of grift E, isn't it? I mean, I am. I'm not one for universe. Unilateral disarmament, You know, I mean, maybe he's a market. Who wants to wait till everybody else becomes a Marxist before she gives up all the trappings of her wealth. I don't know. Yeah, I would tell you, I people call me and Marcus. I'm much better capitalism and most Don't call me a Marxist, but I'm not Well, but isn't that kind of isn't that kind of week, though? I mean, if you like, Listen, I'm a capitalist. I believe in capitalist principles for liberals to you included I believe in school choice. I believe in economic freedom, Low taxes. I believe in health care. Freedom, Healthcare liberty. I don't care if you're a liberal progressive Democrat. Whatever you call yourself, I believe in those things for you to it seems like Patrice Cullors, who's running this group. No seems to believe that Marxism is better for everyone else. Just not for her. And when you see people like Bernie Sanders as well on his third home or whatever it is, I mean, don't you get the hypocrisy like Can you acknowledge at least Chris that we don't have that problem on the conservative side like we believe in economic freedom for you
What a New Era of Big Government Could Mean for Bitcoin
"Yesterday i was asking the question about whether this bitcoin bull market is at its end and part of what i said felt very important to understand before we really know whether that's the case is if in how. The macro environment has shifted the landscape the inflation narrative has been such a huge part of driving this bitcoin bowls cycle that the unwinding of that the changing of that. Would you would imagine naturally have some consequences for where. Bitcoin crypto fit in the larger world. We've been in a period of waiting of wait to see of wondering if there was going to be a transition. It has felt too many like the economy was heating up in such a way that inflation was naturally going to follow an interest rates. Were going to have to rise. Because of that in consequence the riskiest tech stocks that had the highest valuations have been in retreat for a couple months roughly the same period that bitcoin has been idling or going down. There is however a narrative counterweight that whatever the case in the short term of monetary policy fiscal spending has entered a fundamentally new era. A fundamentally new era in which bitcoin could be more relevant than ever. The potential for that new era is exactly what david morris explored in a recent op. Ed on queen does called covid. Nineteen made biden's big-spending the new normal. This came out just after biden's budget was released and explores some of these questions. President joe biden today unveiled a budget proposal that would increase federal spending to levels not seen since world war two as usual. The new president's proposed budget has already triggered a fierce debate but while we can expect usual. Scrum overspending details. The biden budget is an attempt to push forward and leverage a much broader ideological shift. The coronavirus pandemic has made government spending in program significantly more appealing to americans. It's something of a perfect storm. The budget arrives. After pandemic relief proved hugely popular and seemingly effective long-term rising inequality and other serious social problems have created more space for pro government. Voices like us senator bernie sanders.
Health Care vs. Money
"On a hot summer day in twenty nineteen word got out that one of philadelphia's big hospitals hahnemann was closing its doors for good it had served some of the city's poorest patients for well over a hundred and fifty years patients doctors nurses and other hospital employees flooded the streets demanding. The hospital stay open a year and a half before the hospital had been sold to a for profit company and many blamed the closure on corporate greed closing made national headlines senator and then presidential candidate bernie sanders even joined the protests healthcare human rights. And we're gonna fight back when you mentioned prophets and healthcare in the same sentence. Emotions are bound to run high. All talking about lives that are at stake something. We should value much more than money. But house economists sherry lead says there are many factors at play here and boiling it. Down to human need versus prophet is too simplistic. I think the whole debate about the for profit aspect of this is a little misguided. The right question is what is the best way to get to the people. The things that they need at the lowest cost for starters. She says we have a mixed healthcare model with four profit nonprofit and government funded aspects and also this complicated behemoth of a system evolved over decades growing and changing all the time. This is an enormous enormous part of our economy. And the idea that we're going to just turn it on. A dime is is just unrealistic. At least in my mind it's very unrealistic
Ben Burgis on His Book 'Canceling Comedians While the World Burns
"Then i know. I know that we could because of your burning hatred of bernie sanders. We could talk about this for hours. But instead you have a new book out. Called cancelling comedians while the world burns a critique of the contemporary left. The only reason. I could come up with that. You would critique the left is that you are a reactionary. Is this true now. More or less i think. Yeah that's that's my main criticism of the left in the in the book That they advocate things that That i don't want you know that that i would that i would prefer we continue to have private health care. And you know that the united states continue to fight wars all around the world and so on and And my by criticism. The left is that their way to effective. Read about so this goals as we've seen so i mean i did feel slightly attacked by your book because if people laughed stopped paying attention and obsessing over dumb bullshit online that would really hurt blocking reporter. Did you consider that at all. No no i didn't. I guess should actually be like one of those health care. Plans that includes like transition job retraining for people who worked for private insurance trainers to become like coal miners in west. Virginia that's right. Well it's a really good book and obviously tied into a lot of teams. We talk about on this show to me. One of the most important themes is this idea of like a leftism or the left as like a mass movement versus clubhouse when you mean when you talk about people seem to treat it as a clubhouse so in thinking about a lot of the different pathologies the left that i'm criticizing in the book which you know which would certainly includes an extreme eagerness to For for people to denounce each other over trivial differences like certain kinds of strange performative radicalism.
Do the Old Political Labels Still Apply?
"Do the old labels of conservative or tory and labour democrat. Do they have any application in a world where i saw it with my own eyes. Working for president trump. his appeal to the working class was undeniable as they billionaire republican quote unquote and on the left. We have a democrat party. At least in america that is mostly run by and speaking to rich white people in the coastal urban centers. Do the old labels. We became so used during the twentieth century. Have have they lost their connection to any tangible reality. I think you've got two aspects that. I think the there is still a base to each party. The democrats and but the basis evolved clearly bernie sanders as he himself said. He thought that his followers in policy terms essentially comprise thirty five forty percent of democrat. Well you know. That's up from five percent roosevelt's And and not more than five or ten percent as late as lbj or gay And i wouldn't have thought it was morton fifteen or twenty percent in clinton stay so so that has moved certainly and on the republican side. Obviously a lot of very wealthy have Sneath in the republicans and the most recent republican president has an. It's an honor to be in the in the batting line-up but warms up for him getting upcoming and perfect grants and also here both good friends But as you know better than most people the tremendous inroads that president trump made on the traditional Democratic hunting grounds instead of working class people general in hispanic american. And and so. Yes i it. The bases are evolving
More Than 500 Ex-Biden Staffers Urge President to Condemn Israel
"Now we'll start in washington where over five hundred democratic party stuff as the written and led to the president. Joe biden calling him to do more to protect palestinians and hold israel accountable for its actions in gaza. Although a ceasefire currently holds two thirty palestinians were killed while twelve israelis died in. The recent conflict will join me on the line. Alison kaplan soma. A journalist for herat's and scott lucas adjunct professor at the clinton institute at university college done scott if we could start with you. What did this letter from the democrats say well. The democrats are calling for more of an emphasis as it were on the palestinian side of the equation. If you wanna it that use that term and that is that on the one hand you've got the question of us military eight israel. you've got senator bernie sanders who has introduced a measure to suspend almost eight hundred million dollars of american arms to israel until you can have a clear cessation of the violence in other words confirmation following last friday's ceasefire. And then secondly. I think that emphasis not only on reconstruction in gaza which is something that the biden administration is promoting including on secretary of state. Lincoln's visit to israel and palestine yesterday but also on the wider issues the issues of jerusalem. The issues of what the democrats these crafts would call an israeli occupation of the palestinian west bank and some time of true to negotiations for a palestinian state after those of effectively stalled since two thousand nine.

Being Victimized by Scams is Solvable [Test]
"Episodes are out every friday. This is solvable. I'm jacob weisberg there. Only a few real cons that exist and the bones of the story are the same and they've been the same for centuries also maria conaco. Vince would writing about these number of years book. The confidence game explores stories of con-artists opportunists people who build up our trust and then take everything we have think bernie madoff the late investors who destroyed countless lives with false promises and financial theft but before we pledged to fight to abolish scams. Remember this another side to those familiar. Stories to the flip side of our vulnerability to cons is human connection and trust and all the good stuff. So how do we protect our loved ones in ourselves. We'll scams being enduring part of society forever because we refuse or are unable to learn from our mistakes rather than admitting i was dumb. I felt for a scam you say. Oh no no cure all of the mitigating circumstances and it probably wasn't even a scam. So i think that it takes a strong person. It's embarrassing So can scams be solved. Rea- konakov thanks so being victimized by a scam is actually a solvable problem. Maria has gone from investigating the lies. We tell ourselves to mastering the bluff herself by learning to play poker at a world class level and writing about that too so i started by asking her why she so hooked on these concepts of big and small manipulations. My first book was about sherlock holmes. So i've traveled this gamut from you know. How do you be detective to okay. What are the what are the bad guys doing to kind of being the bad guy myself but within a game right so so so there are rules And one of the reasons that i've that it's been such a passion of mine is that i hate to see in re in reality. Not in a game. I hate to see people being taken advantage of. And how often that happens. And how scammers often will target the most vulnerable parts of our population the most vulnerable people and then we as a society target again by blaming them and by saying oh well. You're just stupid. You were just greedy. You were just dumb. You shouldn't have fallen for it. I wouldn't have fallen for it and that just gets me. Yeah well i was going to ask you because of your longstanding interest. I mean this personal for you in any way of you've been scammed yourself or people close to you been victims of scams. I personally have not been scammed. That i know of but one point i always make is that you know. The scams are ones that you're probably not aware of so i. i'm sure i've been scammed on small things and when you're about to get on the subway someone stops you and says hey you know. I'm so sorry. I lost my wallet. Do you have the fair for the subway for the bus for the train. I need to get back to my family. And there's so many excuses and you can do one of two things you can say. I think you're con artist. I'm not going to give you any money on. Walk on you feel shitty. You feel like a bad person because they actually needed you. I've lost my wallet. I've needed help in the past. And i think we bought we probably been on the other side of that and so the trade off is yom maybe get scammed. But i'd rather take the risk of being the victim of scammer in that particular instance and. I'm sure i've been scammed that way. Well that's interesting. I mean i have experienced instill sticks with me from high school. I remember in chicago where i was growing up walking through lincoln park and there was a guy kinda ragged looking walking with a gas can and he stopped me and told me this whole sad story about how he was trying to get back to florida to see a family card run out of gas and he needed the money for gas. Now was probably fifteen years old or something like that. I think i gave him ten dollars. Which would have been a lot of money to me. At the time and i felt good about myself for doing that and then a week later i was walking through the park and there was the same guy looking around with this gas can And it just it sticks with

Yeah yeah for sure so tell us a little bit about this book. Learning to speak gone from scratch. How does that work. Well you know. I started writing this book. When i moved from atlanta to new york city actually and i found that it was a lot more difficult in a new setting to have spiritual conversations to use sacred language. Sacred words That other people were unfamiliar with. And so i began to sort of wonder. I think what a lot of people wonder whether it's better to just avoid this kind of conversation In in mixed company or weather in some way These words these.

European MPs Targeted by Deepfake Video Calls
"Someone impersonating a spokesman for imprisoned russian opposition figure alexander navalny conducted zoom meetings with european parliament members. The sessions featured. What the guardian and nl times called a deepfake video call purporting to be volley associate leonid volkov which volkov himself said looked pretty convincing. Speculation about responsibility for the incident has focused on vo van and lexus. Two well-known russian prank callers pranksters and such nuisance. Humorous are known. The incident is of course troubling for coming at a time when navalny is imprisoned and on a life threatening hunger strike and it's worth noting that relatively senior political officials were taken in by the scam but to place it in perspective. This is more shock jock stuff than it is a spore of new and devilish lena. Various approach to disinformation technically. It's a cut above the kind of jerk who had called the live news coverage to holler bubba buoy during the slow motion. Chase of oj. Simpson's bronco down the four zero five in los angeles but let's keep it in perspective. The lesson is that video that appears genuine alive call need not be and that some authentication beyond look and feel is necessary but we already knew that it's even become atropine gag insurance commercials where there's a guy video conferencing with his move colleague and so forth. At any rate on balance not very funny and vo von alexis themselves aren't novices. We note. they pranked to name. Just three sir. Elton john the duke of sussex and senator bernie sanders but of their targets have been critics of the russian regime. Mr putin himself has not been pranked and seems unlikely to be

"Who and what do you think as president? He would make his first act his first one hundred days his first year. What's let's Bernie GonNa dive into? I think healthcare. He's very passionate about healthcare. He's passionate about his medicare for all crusade the idea that the United States of America should join every other major. Get your country on earth in guaranteeing healthcare to every man woman and child this is not a radical idea in fact poll after poll shows a majority of the American people support. That idea people want to know. I think it's obvious that we're not gonNA pass a bill. That's expensive is that as expensive as Bernie's Medicare for all. Yeah as as expensive as as his proposal. I think the real view from his team is that you need someone who is committed to fighting against the special interests that block this kind of action. That anything you do right whether it's the modest prescription drug pricing reform. That House Democrats are trying to do whether whether it's the bipartisan reform. On surprise billing that is kicking around the Senate. All of these things get blocked by the exact same nexus of interest groups who lead the opposition to Medicare for all. So you may as well just see what you can get out of an actual legislative process. But I think they think you will get the most by naming the bad guys and and taking them on so Bernie of course wrote the Danville. We've heard it a million times at this point but he isn't the only person supporting the damn bill anymore. So why Bernie the over someone say like Elizabeth. Warren who at least at some point has said that she's on board with a similar kind of plan. So I agree I mean I I actually think in terms of legislative outputs. You're not I'm not GONNA see a huge difference between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren or even Bernie Sanders and budejovice. Amy Klobuchar or Biden because the way legislation works is it depends on Congress right if you really. Your primary consideration is what bills are gonNA pass like. You should focus on the Senate race in Maine Senate race in Arizona Senate race in Colorado Colorado. That's what's going to determine it not the choice of president but the most far out there Bernie Sanders. Proposals are not going to become law. No matter what happens you're gonNA GONNA get the same kind of incremental change however you want but if you want to sort of unified Democratic Party taking the fight to trump taking the fight to republicans and selling the based on the need for compromise. There's nobody better than sanders to Bernie never sells it that way. Do you think he believes that. Do you think he believes that. Once he gets into office office he will be the People's champion and thus temper his ambitions. I think that Bernie understands that. It is hard to pass bills hills and that there's not going to be like a parting of the clouds and all obstacles vanish. But I think he also rightly thinks that some of the people who preach pragmatism mm-hmm are in fact being influenced by money and campaign contributions and lobbying and their desires and that people look and they say why have Democrats been talking. Talk about lowering prescription drug costs for twenty years right. How is it that that never gets done? And it's not because nobody knows that you may have to trim your sails a little. Our are make deals very popular ideas. Wind up not happening up. Because of the influence of money in politics right and it's not that a sanders presidency. NC eliminates all of those obstacles that means that you will have a president who is making bargains literally because vote counts not because of the impact of of money so if there is a president sanders if he does need to compromise his agenda. What are those compromises actually look like you think I think some form of a public option of opening up of Medicare he actually cosponsored a public option? Bill back in the two thousand sixteen cycle before raising his aspirations. And then things on prescription drug costs. That's that's an issue that he has been a champion of forever and that mainstream Democrats are increasingly comfortable with but they've never quite sealed. The deal on cutting prescription drug costs. I think you've sanders is in the White House. This guy's been fighting Pharma For decades and he is going to tell everyone like we are going to get this done last style and and they really will. It's funny though because what you're talking about like a public option for example is essentially like the compromise position that bided at closure arguing for against Bernie's Medicare for all but this is the perversity of American politics. Right is Barack Obama runs and wins on public option platform. Yeah so you get the with no oh public option you run and win on a Medicare for all platform. You might get a public option. If you're lucky right. The president always gets less than what he ran on right. Because of the dynamics in Congress I wonder you know you talk about Bernie to essentially rallying this coalition of supporters from the left but also the center center. You've got people like James Carville talking to our colleague Sean. Noling last week about how. He's scared to death about sanders ability to beat trump too to unify the left as well as centrists. Tell me about the argument. That Bernie could actually do that. How do you see it happening so look? We can look at People's electoral track track records right. Some politicians do better than average in their home state and some do worse and it is a hundred percent true. The politicians who do better than average are typically Lee moderates Joe Mansion is one of the great over performers in the US Senate but Bernie Sanders is also and overperform. You look at any year that he was on the ballot and there was also presidential election. Nineteen Ninety to nineteen ninety-six. Two thousand. It's happened over and over again and he runs ahead of the Democratic ticket right. It's not like every leftist. Does that That that's untrue at all but Bernie Sanders does. He is a very effective politician. He is an effective campaigner. And you don't he. Does it a few different ways. One is his personal reputation for integrity. The other is this whole weird thing where he's not really a Democrat. It seems to help him get the votes of people who go. For third parties that there was a lot of Perot Sanders Crossover votes. There was a lot of Stein Sanders crossover votes but even Johnson Sanders Crossover. It's the people who are suspicious of party politics and business as usual sanders seems like a free thinking person a person of integrity somebody who they can trust. It's hard hard to scale that up from Vermont to nationwide but it should give people like Carville people who worry about electability some sense of reassurance that like this is a guy who has run and wine and and done very very well in those elections I mean Vermont is obviously not a swing state. But he's doing better than Barack Obama better than Hillary Clinton better than Bill Clinton in his home state and as we move in our heads to the hypothetical of Bernie actually running against president trump. I wonder how does Bernie Fair against someone who wants to paint him and his his friends. AFC as just socialists and scare people into winning votes if it was me if you could go back in time and have Bernie Sanders. There's not call himself a socialist. I would definitely take that people who think that's a handicap. They are correct Socialism is a label at polls very poorly. But he's been calling himself a socialist for a long time. He's been making it work. And the other advantages. Republicans have been calling every Democrat. They run against a socialist for a long time and to an extent. You Know L. Dixon political party to Cry Wolf on this over there. It seems as though far left. Socialist ideology is increasingly becoming mainstream Democratic Party doctrine. This socialism has never worked if they're so interested in it. Why don't they go to Caracas? Or what I wanted to go someplace where they've tried it a vote for any Democrat in twenty eight twenty and a vote for any Democrat. Tomorrow and North Carolina is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American American dream. Trump got forty six percent of the vote back in two thousand sixteen and it's not just that he lost the popular vote. He was below fifty percent in Florida Arizona Zone and North Carolina. He's below fifty as to the question is not so much. How do you appeal to swing voters who are due? I like trump to a not like trump. But it's how how do you get all of the anti-trump voters together and I think sanders is uniquely. Well positioned to bring those third party voters and to get them to vote Democrat. I think that's the strongest electability argument for him. I went walking that ribbon of highway. I saw me endless skyway. Never forget the Bernie Sanders record the polk album in the eighties Bali. I don't know if Matthew yglesias has recorded any folk albums yet but he hosts the weeds.

Jack and I encourage anyone who hasn't seen the new series finding on the on the on the and I play it'll be streamed is on. CBC and of course there is no Friday. It's five to five it's crackerjack anymore because everyone's streaming and listening different. I'm watching a different times on the of course I mean cracker Jack. Was it just a great show but aw kind of like a product of very different time in the sense that when the world stopped a Friday afternoon and everyone finish work can have family sat down together. Gather with one screen in the house and enjoyed that so it was. It became very traditional. And how you know that was the big kind of like cabaret family. Entertainment payment sort of show that. How do you think crackerjack returning will fare in an inner in an age that so different I think come I think crackdown do really well from what I've seen the opening episode because it was out and out variety the production values were very very high? And I think when I when I do pantomime I worked two families. People want spectacle people can see on the screen almost anything whereas whereas in terms of watching crackerjack on the screen. I think that'd be mightily impressed in the opening episode of which we were part there was a fire. Iraq like a Circus Act. The went truly quist. There were sketches. The it was right across the board it was out out variety and I think there's a generation honoration of people that haven't been served. Well then what television house to offer which is out and out variety. They've been starved. Thyolo bear the hasn't been scratched or they just you start another. They've got the edge. And I think I think crackerjack will will fill that void so you think they would just punch through anyway. It's it's entertainment. It's great great entertainment and I think I think families will love grindstone will always find a home.

"Make government work better and better for a thinner and thinner rich slice in america and it's it's the campaign contributions we talk about those but it's so much more than it's the fact that they can hire armies of lobbyists i still remember back following the financial crash when you would've expected that the banks having just got veiled out by the american tax payers would just be a little bit she just little embarrassed to show up in the halls they spent a million dollars a day lobbying against basic financial reforms lobbying against the consumer financial protection bureau and i still remember because this is when i was i was still tater i come down to washington to try to fight for the consumer agency and literally the lobbyists would come by in such big herds of people in hand tailored suits and hand may blow fers that you kind of have to lean back against the hallway let down the hallway it matters fair that that there is this huge lobbying apparatus on the side of corporations on the side of money on the side of giant banks who's there for the folks who get cheated let me michael you raise the issue gordon that as well this just the republicans that's right all right of how does it happen that big money can dominate both political parties what we do that the oscars a couple years ago and tapped on the shoulder and it's the ceo of goldman sachs and he says to me why why are you attacking on why we're democrats he says to me what democrats i said i know that i know that you are the largest single private contributor to president obama thank you for that by the way but you know you expecting something and and he was like a fall at this if you look at the money that goes to support democratic candidates and we were talking with katherine backstage in alabama how they come in with the money and whether they're whether the representatives are democrats republicans they go for the money and it's one of the hardest things that we have those working on these issues that that how do you fight the money.

"Jump in well let's even put some context on work in poverty forty five percent of homeless individuals work so you've gotta get what everybody actually i'm forty four percent of homeless individuals work but obviously don't earn enough to get themselves out of their situation so that they can have decent housing forty percent of workers are in contingent insecure jobs as as defined by the general accounting office forty four percent of workers earn below fifteen dollars an hour so that's the context in which we're in but i'm going to shift gears a little bit and say that if we really talking about middle class economic security economic security we need to talk about wealth and if we look at well we know wealth is both the beginning in the end of economic insecurity or security wealth gives you it's not just wealth as an outcome it's wealth can do for your life we've talked about political power if you got wealth you can get political power if you're faced with an expensive legal system wealth will allow you to address that condition if you have medical bills wealth allows you to address your your condition if you wanna send your child to leat private school or university those that have wealth can do so we often think about wealth in terms of what what the end is but really the real power of wealth is what it can do for people it gives you choice it gives you freedom it gives you agency now let's think about wealth is in terms of numbers senator sanders pointed out the beginning of when we started that the top ten percent of households might be slightly different that key gave he gave the top one percent the top ten percent of households have over seventy five percent of the nation's wealth the bottom fifty percent of households have about one percent of the nation's wealth so however unequal we are in terms of wealth race becomes a bigger predictor of somebody's wealth positioned in class itself the typical black household has about ten cents on the dollar the typical white household and that including home equity we talk about the middle class there virtually has never been a substantial middle black middle class if we're defining.

"Do you believe that all the thanks for working news but here's the part that really gets i mean we could do this all the harder it really gets to me about this is quite do this why would anyone say let's tax working families in order to give giant tax breaks to two two billionaires and the answer is because they're billionaire donors want that this is nothing but payoff off i i have to say bernie i thought the whole game was over just going to be totally over a couple of weeks ago when the republican congressman steps up and says hey you know i've been told by my donors that if we don't deliver on this tax steal they said don't call me back that to all when they went on the sunday talk shows and said you know now our corporate donors really want this all the money's going to dry up for the republicans if they don't deliver huge tax giveaways to billionaires and set up that the government will cut basic support on social security on medicare unedic this is what the culture of and in other billionaires i've been dreaming about for years yet dreaming about working on spending hundreds and hundreds of millions and also what we saw it took clock in the morning on friday was the corruption of a campaignfinance system and a political system now which is almost cup completely controlled by billionaires enlarge can't pay up contributes nobody no poll out there comes close the suggesting that this is what the american people want but would elizabeth said is is the simple truth the american people don't want tax breaks the billionaires but the billionaires do and the next step is to try to destroy the entire safety net of this country which has protected the needs of the elderly the children the sick and the poor and working families since f.

"Listen to this nearly half of middle class families what actually see their taxes go up by the end of the decade got that by the end of the decade about half almost half of middleclass families would see their taxes go up and the reason for that is the elimination of the duck shins for medical expenses the elimination of the doctrines for adoption student loan interest rates state and local income and sales taxes and the cost of health insurance for the selfemployed and if they are able to pass this legislation it would blow a giant holding the deficit now you all remember your year after year our republican colleagues talk about but deficit out terrible it is how horrible it is that we have a twenty trillion dollar national debt well this legislation would blow a giant hole in the deficit increasing it greasing the national debt by about one point eight trillion dollars over a 10year period and what does that mean what the republicans will do the day after this thing is past them we can do everything we can to prevent it from being passed is they would say well the deficit is going up we have to cut social security medicare and medicaid and that's exactly what they proposed in their budget massive cuts to medicare medicaid trillion dollars medicare almost five hundred billion and they will get to social security sooner than later now it seems to me that instead of providing even more tax breaks the profitable corporations and billionaires in trump's cabinet people who void billions in us taxes.

"When we there is not not not winged is not on top one gerald emme today i'd like to take a few minutes to talk about two issues that are interlocked i'll one is the recently released paradise papers of which talk about how billionaires are able to avoid paying their fair share of taxes and secondly is the disastrous republican tax plan let me start off by telling it which already know is that we live in a country today which has massive levels of income and wealth inequality worse today than at any time since the late 1920s we have a situation where the top one tenth of one percent now owns almost as much wealth as the bottom ninety percent incredibly and this is really quite hard to believe the three wealthiest people in this country three people bill gates jeff phase those and warren buffett own more wealth than the bottom half of american society a hundred and sixty million americans meanwhile all the people on top of such incredible wealth forty million americans are living in poverty the middle class has been shrinking for forty years and twenty eight million americans have no health insurance at all but it is not only the reality of the grotesque level of income and wealth inequality that makes the american people so angry it is the reality that the people on top with their incredible wealth and power and access to lawyers and accountants are able to manipulate the system to benefit themselves at the expense of everyone else and that after all is what the rigs economy is all about the major issue of our time in my view there are a lot of major issues out there believe me put the issue that i worry about so much is the rapid movement.
