Fresh update on "mayor pete" discussed on Brian Lehrer
"Types of people on and I think it will be a really, really conversation in the confirmation hearings. We just have a couple of minutes left. Then we're going to have Andrew Waisman on who was a top prosecutor in the Mueller investigation, and he's a financial fraud expert, and he's gonna have a lot more to say about the tax returns. But about the timeline. Of the confirmation or the process. I'm seeing Monday, October 12th for the start of hearings Thursday, October 22nd for a Senate Judiciary Committee vote, so I guess the following week For a full Senate vote. Assuming all goes as Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell R laying it out. But October 22nd Is also the night of the final presidential debate. Tonight's the first one that's supposed to be the third one. So. Lindsey Graham, the Judiciary Committee chairman, must think voting to confirm Barrett in committee that day. Is good for the president in that contact. Should I read it that way, Maybe because it takes focus off the virus or anything else. Well, I think that the the White House definitely feels like and some Republicans feel like this is a good thing because it does take focus off the virus. It reminds some of Trump's base who have moved away from him why they supported him in the first place. It's something that they can be proactive about and say You know we're doing this thing. This is a key part of the Trump record this judicial legacy on DH. It allows them to circumvent questions about the recession, the social unrest how the White House is handling of the pandemic. Of Trump's taxes. All of these things that have been so negative for them and people are so unhappy about and and I think that's why we're seeing the low approval rating for the president. It allows them to sort of seize on this as The capstone of Trump's first term of in time for the last debate. And last thing how big a deal are the Democrats making of this wing of Catholicism's called people of praised that they say about is part of I see one of your political colleagues. Wrote an article about how influential the group is in shaping the city of South Bend, Indiana. So maybe someone should ask Mayor Pete about this, but people's religious views are their own. They only become relevant if someone is trying to bend the law to conform their religion, violating separation of church and state in that direction, rather than being independently faithful. Two American civic law. Are the de mes making that case. Did.
Pete Buttigieg and Joe Bidens's Economic Policy
"Presumptive, Democratic presidential nominee Joe. Biden rolling out his economic policy today. He's going to travel the Pennsylvania near his hometown. Scranton the agenda slogan is build back better. His campaign team says that Biden will prioritize small business workers and plans to focus on inequalities that prevent minorities from reaching a fair economic plainfield. We're going to hear a lot more about the plan from Biden campaign surrogate. Buddha judge is going to the squad team and just. To remember that the broadcast news. What is it? Bring back better, a lot of alliteration for remember that quote from broadcast I can't remember what it was, but Yeah, BRING BACK! A lot of bs there. Build back better is the name of the former vice president's economic recovery plan. That is the work of task force between Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders the key idea. Bring critical manufacturing back to the United States with incentives for companies and seven hundred billion dollars in earmarked funding for government contracts for American firms and Research and development. The campaign says this will create eight million new jobs if that sounds similar to president trump's platform, it is. Thank you very much. Thank you all for being here. A. Last year trump signed an executive order that would prioritize American manufacturers. In certain federal contracts, the Biden campaign says trump's efforts are working and contracts to foreign companies are up thirty percent. Vice President Biden has said he'd raised three point eight trillion dollars by increasing taxes on individuals, making more than four hundred thousand dollars a year and reverse in corporate tax cuts. Now this roll today will include a speech outside Biden's hometown Scranton Pennsylvania and. And his one time rivals from the Democratic primary race remember that it was just a few months ago are out in force today to support the former vice president and his plan one of them join us on Squawk box, Mayor Pete, the former mayor of South Bend Indiana Peop- Buddha Jr here's Joe I'm just going to call you. Mayor Pete I guess we all just feel comfortable feel comfortable. Everybody does around here countering next radio. I'm going to so we understand the primary process, and you understand it as well as anyone and we've seen it on both sides. Sometimes, there is a tendency to move towards the. Basis with some of the programs, and then when when it comes to governing, maybe you become more centrist and I'm just gonNa tell you. Here's the headline for this mirror. A Biden to map and economic path delaying progressives, biggest plans and I think Kayla alluded to it that he's going to call for a moderate approach towards reviving the US economy. Is that how you see it? And is that the right prescription to win, but I think there's a lot of boldness and the level vice president. Biden wants to invest in America I. think that's not only progressive already, but it's something that people across the out. We're going to I. Think it's in keeping with Joe Biden's instance to bring people together, but I think it's also in practical terms. What makes sense early on? We need to invest in our own competitiveness. In order to grow your own, and in order to compete with increasingly powerful economic competitors like China, we need to make less dependence on Safai chains for critical goods and infrastructure light. We're seeing right now with armed soon which she's on countries like truck and we need to make sure that American workers come I to me that nets bedrock through what democratic are spout, but I do agree with you that you don't have to Iraq Democrats to see why this is a good at. was so in the plans were pretty expensive as you know. And it was pre pandemic, and it was pre-, twenty, five trillion wherever we are right now, so this is cost a lot and inflicted a lot of economic damage and. Hopefully we're GONNA. Come out of this, but it might take years so. I mean. Is there something to that that it's not the we're not in the same position to be able to maybe be as as as free-spending with some of the democratic programs. Do you think do you agree with that and? We're GONNA need to to try to pay down some of this that with our taxes. No Democrats go is one of the first to talk about deficits and the debt, but the reality is. We can't afford not to make these vestments score. We will see economy stagnate, and since we're in a moment of distort low interest rates, and since these kinds of investments every time America's none have paid off investing our competitiveness in our infrastructure in our manufacturing base. Frankly they have much irate return than tax cuts, so as economic stimulus goes. I think this is the right way forward. Of course we got to be smart about the investments remain, and of course you can't get something for nothing. But, if you look at the overall picture, where are headed? We don't have a choice and we can handle these kinds of investments if we make before it's too late to a the I think that lowering corporate taxes helped. Corporations, become more competitive. Bring money back I think it. It was somewhat responsible for what we're pretty good. Economic Times before the pandemic and terms of historically low unemployment rates across the board. And some of the deregulation. The vice president is going to reverse the at least a portion of the corporate tax cuts. Do you not think that that that that plan helped the economy, do you? Do you disagree that lower corporate rates were were a boom for the US economy, and it won't matter to reverse them. John, I'm very skeptical that those rate cuts should get hosted at credit. And by the way those rate cuts rent led directly to exploding deficits, and as part of the reason, why oddly enough not to be too partisan about this, but across my lifetime one hundred percent of democratic precedents seem. Deficits go down one hundred percent. Presences seem deficits. Go Up, but you can't get something for nothing. And will we gotta decide is what's a responsible at tat hats not deliver the kind of investments that make an economy. and. This isn't something we have to just use our imagination for we look at the evidence and the evidence across Merton. History is the one we're making robust vassals with responsible, but not excessive taxation, the gross but I. We've talked about it earlier that right now with where American businesses and how important it is to get the unemployment rate back down. It seems like not the most ideal time to raise corporate taxes now. We're going to need to pay down a lot of what we've spent. A and maybe. Rick Razor on wealthy individuals, but that may not raise enough either. Are you for a blanket raised in the marginal rate into what level? or What. What would you advise? Vice President Biden to propose for a marginal rate across the board. Well. I would advise him to look at the evidence and find levels of taxation. They're consistent with growth as they have been historically now, of course, in American history, the economy's growing much quicker under much higher marginal tax rates but I don't think we have to go back to what it was like in the in the sixties or seventies. Again. Period of in many of those faces product to depress looked online. Is You've got to pay for what you and we should be able to strike a balance in the United States, but what we can't do is continue with these deficit. Exploding tax cuts that we were told would pay for themselves. You can check. They did and now. That was before we got the situation. We are now the debts. It's why we need to make sure. We're looking at the investment side as well as the cost side what I really appreciate about the plan. That's vice-presidents laying out. Is it does? Mayor Pete just wanted to. We wrestle with this issue of taxes. All the time said it's one of the press. Two questions related to one is just simply the timing of a tax increase, and it's the question. We asked the vice president when he joined us now more than a couple of weeks back, and he said he would do it immediately. Even amidst this and the question I say is to the to the extent. There are small business owners out there right now. That are clearly struggling and trying to get up on their feet. Seeing a tax increase right in front of them. Just make the case if if that's the case you WANNA, make in terms of the timing. Of course there's going to be a look at conditions on the ground and a glass. Four months has shown us in really blunt terms. How quickly things can change and I know that a new administration will make sure that every step that takes this is consistent with what the right thing is to do based on what we see around us, but we also know is that small business will benefit from the kinds of investments that president housing. And that this country will be more competitive one and were not successful. When we're investing the foundations, no country can't get away with disinvesting in education in infrastructure and research the way we have, and for a very long and the longer you go disinvesting and all that. The the sooner it's GonNa catch to you for small and big business away, and you know we already reached a point. Where even when there were low unemployment rates, the American standard of living was not secure life expectancy down. It raises questions about how our economy has been lined up. This is a historic opportunity to make sure that it's working for more Americans and made just GonNa fall with with the other big debate around this table a lot. is about wealth, the the wealthy and philanthropy yesterday? Warren Buffett gave away two point nine billion dollars and. which is a great thing and philanthropy, and by the way has helped even during this pandemic in a meaningful way, but oftentimes those shares are never taxed as we all know, and so the government will never be a beneficiary and other taxpayers won't be a beneficiary of those successes. Do you think philanthropy should be taxed in any way well, it would make more sense for that to happen on the front end. Look, it's it's wonderful one. There are these major commitments such generousness by. Individuals, but we've also got to ask how things got so unequal in the first place, because if a little bit more that was making its way into a democratically guided process in other words, the kinds of Research and development that invent trillion dollar ideas like the Internet itself and Space Travel. Are we know our country is better off, and we gotta ask where the balances I would argue. Look thing about this. In the United States right now there is not one county, not one. Where a fulltime minimum wage were can't afford a two bedroom apartment time. There's somebody works for a living in a job fulltime. Can't afford to bed in the part. I would argue that if that were the case. If we had higher wages and more public investment, we wouldn't need to knots landing quite as much as we did. Mayor Pete the one thing that President Biden's plan has in common with President Trump says that it it really leans intimate in America and not just from a position rhetoric there looks like there are going to be real incentives real penalties to companies if they're not making things in America. Do you think globalization is dead? I don't think we have to choose between closing ourselves off investing in our own country on the contrary I think global. Market, we are more competitive when we are starting right here at home made in America is really news and the vice president's fine America initiatives. Really good news for us here. The so called belt where we know that we are Cape. Producing some the finest goods in the world, but there are so many loopholes or waivers in the system and. I think you all report it. You know. Australia's actually gone up an awful lot under this administration so I don't do this since. The president. Fighting. I view it as an opportunity for us to make sure that taxpayer dollars benefit American firms and workers first,
Elizabeth Warren's Presidential Bid Comes to an End
"Senator Amy Klobuchar former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Brundige and former New York City mayor. Mike Bloomberg have all called it quits and today. We're adding Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren to that list. I will not be running for president in twenty twenty but I guarantee I will stay in the fight for the hardworking folks across this country have gotten short into the stick over another. That's been the fight of my life and it will continue to be so warrants progressive policy driven campaign caught fire last fall making her an early favorite to win the nomination but she had a disappointing showing in the first elections in the primary season. Including this week Super Tuesday with more on the rise and fall of Warren's candidacy we're joined by Wall Street Journal reporter Tarini Party Tarini. Last fall senator. Warren was one of the front runners for the Democratic nomination but today she became the last remaining woman among the top tier candidates drop out. How expected was this announcement at this point. Given what we saw on Super Tuesday Warren was essentially left with no choice. But to drop out there was all choose facing a lot of pressure because she didn't win a single state she came third in her home state of Massachusetts. And so you know as this race drags out with Joe Biden on one side and Bernie Sanders on the other. The more candidates who stay in the longer the Democratic primary could become. And that's something that party leaders are trying to avoid They WANNA be trump and so they think that the field should sort of consolidate And so they can have a nominee sooner rather than later and she just didn't see a path forward a viable path forward. She did not end. You know ahead of Super Tuesday. Her staff had said that they were looking at a contested convention as one of the ways that were left for her to essentially be the Democratic nominee. They were hoping that she would pick up enough delegates on Super Tuesday to make that case but she didn't get that far and at this point. She said she just saw no path forward. Let's talk about the rise and fall of her candidacy. Tarini people were talking about her back in two thousand sixteen. When Hillary was running right she chose not to run in two thousand sixteen. And this time around you know. She started off with a few missteps She really did get her footing back. She focused her campaign on Ground Game Organization. She built out a huge campaign that focused on raising money online That really Invested in field organizers in in the early states An early on she did start getting a lot of traction. You know if you go back to the late summer early fall. She was starting to become the front runner in this primary. And then that slowly started That's that's slowly. Went away as more questions about her health. Care plan started. Cropping up she eventually put out a Medicare her own version of Medicare for all And you know wasn't really able to sell that both to moderate voters and progressive voters which she said today in her press conference was interesting. She said that when she started out she was told that there were two lanes in the Democratic primary the the Progressive Lane and the The moderate lane and Joe Biden would be the front runner in the moderate Lane and Bernie Sanders was in coming on the Progressive Lane. She was told she said that there was no other path. And she said she Set at the time that she didn't believe that that she thought that she could change things and she said today that that she was wrong It seems based on the way that this primary has played out who among those remaining candidates Former Vice President Biden or Vermont Senator Sanders Might Benefit from Warren's exit. So we'll have to see you know if she decides to endorse. She said today that she's going to take some time to think. And figure things out you know a lot of her supporters. Are you know more progressive? And if you in that sense they could be. You know they could move to Bernie Sanders but she also does have a lot of college educated women who aren't necessarily you know the Bernie Sanders Type of voter so she could. You know some Some of her supporters could also back Joe Biden Tarini. Warren's departure leaves two white men in their seventies competing to run against president trump another white man in his seventies. What are we to make of the fact that this was historically diverse. Field has whittled down to this. It was historically diverse. We had six women. If you know if you're including Tulsi Gabbard and Marianne Williamson. We had six women running Tulsi Gabbard is obviously still in the race but has not gained any traction she elizabeth. Warren was the you know the the last top tier woman still running. She sort of addressed that in her in her press conference one of the hardest parts of this is all those all those little girls. We're going to have to wait four more years. That's going to be hard. What affected Warren. Have on the two thousand presidential campaign and we'll see continue to influence it going forward. I think she will continue to have Influence and be a big voice especially if she decides to endorse either Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. Going forward how they bring up some of her policy ideas and whether they choose to incorporate those in their own campaign that will be interesting to
Warren is not endorsing anyone yet
"Like he always does I think that's what it is in announcing that yeah she's out of it we kind of gas that but she's not going to make an endorsement now not today not based around this I want to take a little time to think a little more I've been I've been spending a lot of time right now on the question of suspending and also making sure that this works as best we can for our staff world team for our family fall into hello for me hello what he just be honest if this works out best for me because remember mayor Pete Colbert char what do you think a lot they did there this their turn around within twenty four hours if you remember we have really helped Biden's surge yeah but you you knew that they were moderately or stay moderates again Elizabeth Warren is dealing with the person now who she thinks well yeah we have similar ideals politically but he may not get the nomination I mean he may not get the win once he gets the nomination and what's up with Elizabeth Warren anyway let's go to Danny and Long Island welcome the Curtis and jets that you'll get ten if you could go to buy provisions

going to be on stage tonight here's the full list we have Elizabeth Warren Joe Biden Bernie Sanders senator Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota Michael Bloomberg is going to be back let's see if he's prepared and all this time around Thomas Dyer whose another one that's kind of unprepared and getting really silly when his you too bad at all really sick of them yeah it's amazing he's he spent a lot of money as well not needs that spending Bloomberg money Bloomberg it's estimated has already spent a half a billion dollars in ads both prince both television radio and internets and mayor Pete's gonna be onstage as well so you have with a whole bunch of them out there we'll see see who the low the long knives obviously you're not gonna be out for Michael Bloomberg this time around he's proven that he's not going to be the candidate he's just an apt I think would be the way to put it to good for dead last debate was just terrible they'll be out for Bernie Sanders this time because Bernie is the front runner they're all gonna be going after Bernie watch that tonight problem is Bernie's not a fighter but Jesus ease a savvy politician I mean that's really all he's done all his life do you have a job until he was forty all these really done is yeah even from the public trough is now you don't congressman senator mayor so he's done he's just you know been a public servant his whole life didn't didn't Poland regular paycheck to lose forty years old unbelievable but he's going to be up there tonight nonetheless we've had to Bernie Sanders talking about who should be the candidate because member last time Bernie was making a good run of Hillary and it looked like at one point in fact he was going over taker and delegates and then the Democrats pulled this stuff with super delegates and all this stuff and all by the way well we found this these delegates over here they happen to be in the wrong room will bring them all they want to vote for Hillary okay and then wow we get found this carload of delegates over here and this busload here they were stuck up in Wisconsin you know they want to vote for Hillary that's right okay so here they pulled all this magic and basically stole the nomination away from Bernie well Bernie is just letting him know that he's paying attention this time around I guess and he feels that who's ever rides at the democratic convention with the most delegates should be the nominee this is Bernie Sanders Cardi one candidate comes out on top the state of the country you voted for that candidate all but by the way we don't think the candidate should be the nominee I think that would be a serious serious problem for the Democratic Party and I think it will wreck havoc all on that person's campaign what was your view Verney it'll ruin that Carson's campaign because they won't won't be the nominee anymore Pete mayor Pete from a south bend Indiana he's also up there running thirty seven years old I'd like to see he's out class but he is very very well first if you see every every word he said his B. is practiced every movement he makes has been run through focus groups he's very very I don't see a plastic up on stage but he certainly is smooth talker the whole bit but he's realizing as are the Democrats the Bernie Sanders is the candidate and if he comes out of super Tuesday with so many delegates he very well could be the candid unless of course the Democrats pull some crazy shenanigans but mayor Pete up there he realizes of Bernie Sanders is his nominee it's going to destroy the Democrats and so he sold up his hands and Hey guys over here you know I'm a viable candidate let's give a listen to cut after this is mayor Pete we have put together a campaign with has a different way of approaching politics that has drawn together people across ideological spectrum in in in different kinds of communities and stand the best chance not only defeating senator Sanders well if we can unify the party but of defeating president trump in the fall okay I don't think that last one's gonna happen but again he's kind of saying Hey if we put Bernie up there the boy we're all in trouble and then there's old Joe Katie green our ring in the inter webs I found a great piece of audio from Joe Biden told Joe Jo Jo Jo Jo Jo Jo is not sure what he's running for let's listen to Joe Biden South Carolina yesterday and I have a simple proposition here I'm here to ask you for your help right come from you don't get far less yes my name is Joe Biden I'm a democratic candidate for United States Senate look me over your legs he help out and now both of you have a bite give me a look though okay wait wait what what are you doing you run that bias against Jerry can I have a simple proposition here I'm here to ask you for your help right come from you don't get far less yes my name is Joe Biden I'm a democratic candidate for United States Senate look me over here like was he help out if not both together by give me a look though okay okay hold on he is a democratic candidate who's running for the United States Senate and if you don't like him that vote for the other Biden who put the replacement so did sound like he said you know sit down sit down Joe somebody get him some water let's maybe check as wires in the back to make sure that they're all firing properly argue I think he's lost a couple of cylinders there yeah I know he's not he's not firing fuller is easy it's not the no not the old politician used to be falling back on his lines who is running for the Senate folks Joe Biden's running for to be the democratic candidate for president okay now not finding sentenced in state Senate Joe you know used to be kind kind of funny that's actually kind of sad you know he's there so many times he'd be in Ohio we get confused call at Iowa and and I say it's sad because he was doing an interview a couple weeks ago and he mentioned how every morning he gets up and he says you know it should have been both it's running for president beau Biden was the son the son that tragically died of brain cancer he was the Attorney General of Delaware and Joe every morning thinks himself should have been a son running for president so maybe is doing in his honor but Joe I know you're probably gonna do well in South Carolina maybe up on the stage just clarify that you are running to be the Democrat candidate for president case people think you're still running for Senate I'm
Why Mayor Pete Buttigieg thinks he's the one to beat Donald Trump
"Mir p footage welcome back to the podcast extra. Haven't been good to be back all right. Let's jump right on in a row. Is it too late to stop? Senator Bernie Sanders. No but it will be if we don't get our act together. Look we have a very clear choice as a party. Right now We can take his approach and I recognize that he speaks for a lot of ideal ideals that we share but it's also an approach that is about consolidating a base and pushing away. People disagree you at a moment when I think we have to be doing the opposite now. We're only three states in We're on the eve of the South Carolina primary then come Super Tuesday but we could wake up after Super Tuesday with no going back and I think it's time to really ask ourselves how we're GONNA move forward I'm with US. You said It will be if we don't get our act together. What does that mean? What does that look like? Get Our act together. Of course what I think that should look like is to rally around a candidate. Perhaps the one candidate to have actually beaten Bernie Sanders anywhere in the country cycle which Which is my campaign and a look at a vision that can make room for everybody. That is very progressive and set up in a way that that can actually reach out to independence and android some Republicans over the line to because I think that's how we're going to win in November So that's the case that I'm continuing to make that we cannot Expect to succeed against the president this divisive if we're sewing a different kind of division from our own side there's a better way and our campaign shows the promise of making that happen and you mentioned divisive and and Senator Sanders sent out a tweet. That caught a lot of people by surprise. Were wondering if it was a lot and not him but he really did send out a tweet that said. I've Got News Republican establishment. I've got news for the Democratic Establishment. They can't stop us. How how would give me a reaction to that? Well I think it reflects a worldview where the Democratic Party is the problem. And that's not how I see things I've I've never automatically felt like part of any establishment obviously Competing as I am as a as a mayor from South Bend Indiana and not exactly waiting my turn but to to say that the big problem in America right now is Democrats. I think Mrs what's going on what's going on right now. Is We've got a president who succeeded with a hostile takeover of the Republican Party and a sense that our party has not been able to connect with a lot of people who would benefit from our policies who are certainly capable of voting for us. Think of all the people who voted for President Obama Just a few years ago and then turned around and voted for president trump. We can't let that happen again and part of why. I was very excited. About how competitive we were in the Iowa counties for example the digits that they voted for President Obama sometimes twice and then swung over to president. Trump is that we don't have to have a repeat of two thousand sixteen in fact the less twenty twenty resembles two thousand sixteen in all respects. The better does it offend you. That a person who is a member of the Democratic Party continues to thunder against the people? He'll need to win the nomination and to govern if he were to win in November. Well let me say this. Ultimately we need to unite the country and uniting. The country begins with uniting the Democratic Party. If you think the Democratic Party is the problem or even sometimes engage in rhetoric that makes it sound like Democratic Party is the enemy while competing for the Democratic nomination. That is going to make it very challenging to actually bring folks together in the speed that we need to in order to compete in order to win. What do you say to his supporters if you are the nominee and he isn't because it is no secret that the supporters have Bernie Sanders so-called Bernie Bros? I've been a victim of them. Lots of journalists have lots of politicians have lots of regular everyday people have been What's the word the kids are using a third over? That's a new. Oh yeah saying saying remotely negative things about Bernie Sanders. What do you say to them? Well I'd say you have a decision to make if this is about personality. That's one thing but if this is about policy if this is about Raising wages for workers if this is about ensuring the corporations are held accountable. This is about doing something on climate before it's too late. I will be the most progressive president in our lifetimes. It's true that I believe that some of the proposals that come from Senator Sanders go too far and and are not going to be a past anyway but Just to be very clear I am running to be a I think also would be the most progressive nominee. We've had in recent memory so if this is really about the change you want to see in the world and not how much you you feel attracted to the personality of one or another candidate. Then I'm offering just that and I'm offering it in a way that I think could actually unite an American majority. That actually is with us on these things you you'd never realize from certainly from looking at the Senate or even from looking at some of the coverage is it. There is a powerful American majority right now then agrees for example that the public sector should step up and fix the healthcare problem. Just as long as we don't force it on too many people that agrees that minimum wages have to go. We gotta do something about gun violence. We've got to create a pathway to citizenship. When it comes to immigration we got to act on climate This is an American majority. Let's let's galvanize it not blow it up. That sounds great. But what is your. What is your path after Super Tuesday and I focused on Super Tuesday because we go in rapid succession from South Carolina to Super Tuesday on three days. What is Your Path? Well we need to have a good showing in certainly on Super Tuesday and I think that we will We just We're in Virginia. Yesterday had I don't know the final crowd count but it was the better part of ten thousand. People are out there with amazing energy Same thing when we were in Colorado on our way out after the the caucuses in Nevada and we're going to work to compete in in every one of those Super Tuesday states. Look the reality is. There's no quick way to win But we believe State by state election by-election a we can piece together what we need Provided that I can do the job of Of gathering the support of those who are skeptical about Senator Sanders approach and looking for a better way. Go back to the basically the beginning of this conversation where I ask you about If we don't get our act together and of course it's all you think it's about coalescing around you. But there are a lot of people who are saying all. The centrist so-called centrists in the campaign are taking votes away from each other in allowing Senator Sanders to run away with it What would happen or how does that happen if you are? Senator Coburn Senator Warren. Don't get out of the race. I mean at some point after Super Tuesday. There's going to be a clamour in the within the party. How do you make the case to the party? That you shouldn't be the one below drop I would say that. So so if folks are looking for an alternative to Bernie Sanders and believe that there needs to be fewer alternatives in order for anyone to make it. Why would you look to the one person who's actually beaten him anywhere in the cycle as the one that you would ask to step aside You know we. We have been able to Defy all of the pundits expectations we have been able to compete Especially in again those areas that we're going to need in order to defeat. Donald trump that vote democratic usually but haven't lately and we've got a track record of ahead of a lot of the other people who are going to be Looking at Looking to their left and looking to their rights. And you're GonNa make room for me at the end of the day Voters are going to settle this.
"mayor pete" Discussed on The BreakPoint Podcast
"I'm Shane Morris. As we approach two thousand twenty we want to share with you. Several of our most popular breakpoint commentaries from two thousand nineteen. Here's John Stonestreet with the mayor. Pete judge creatures earlier this month. South Bend Mayor and presidential hopeful Pete. Buddha judge quoted the Bible and an attempt to speak to the question of abortion abortion. There are a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath he said and so even that is something that we can interpret differently if we apply the Bible in the way mayor. Pete eight suggest. Abortion would be justified up until birth which is of course a position now firmly-embedded and championed across the Democratic Party. One of the ways mayor Pete has distinguished anguish. His candidacy from all the other democratic hopefuls for president is through constant reference to his religious faith already. Buddha judge has applied and often often misapplied the Bible to support for left positions on several cultural issues including economic policy and same sex marriage. These biblical misapplication nations are easily taken apart. or at least they should be the bobble clearly treats unborn babies as person's SI psalm. One thirty nine Luke. One fifteen and Jesus clearly clearly affirms. The genesis account of marriage is between a man and woman see Matthew Nineteen in fact the Bible. Buddha judge goes to for his political positions is missing. A lot of pages and suspiciously reads a whole lot like his party's platform as Ross. Doubt that put. It doesn't appear to support any policy that deviates from the Progressive Catechism ISM now of course. Buddha judge has every right to sermon is my concern. Here is what makes it effective. It certainly isn't the strength of his biblical argumentation mutation as I said on twitter recently. What makes Mayor Pete's gross misapplication of scripture to cultural issues so troubling and so effective is the incredible void left left when many pastures won't apply scripture to cultural issues Buddha just filling a void. That's been left by pastors. who only teach the Bible as a personal private self-help book and to help us find our purpose improve our lives and to feel closer to God? A friend responded to my tweet with this one that even further clarifies the problem mom that Buddha images revealing in the church also he said he's very nice reducing Christianity. Too Bland platitudes and baked kindness. Leaves US utterly defenseless us when the snake oil salesman vaguely kind to exactly do the math too. Many Christians never hear the bobble applied to cultural issues too. Many Christians are are left with the impression that Christianity is all about being nice and happy mayor. Pete Seems Nice and happy. Mayor Pete applies the Bible to cultural issues as one of my Tennessee. Friends Angie's assay. This ain't rocket surgery. Christianity is of course personal. But it's not private to say as Jesus first followers did did that. Christ is Lord. It's the state public truth. Christ is sovereign not just for our salvation but over everything and if Christianity is true. It's truth applies to every sphere of life. I'm grateful for those pastors and preachers and there are many of them who clearly and courageously weakened and week out articulate late the whole truth of the Bible working out its implications from the pulpit for the cultural moment in which we live. There's a scene in remember. The Titans remember that movie in which Denzel Washington's character tells his white assistant coach to stop coddling the teams African American players. He knows the racist hatred. These young men will face. You're not preparing them for the real world. He said you're crippling them for life in the same way. Pastors who used the scripture to coddle our emotions but never apply scripture hot button issues will leave their flocks cripplingly vulnerable whenever politicians twist the Bible for their own and for breakpoint. I'm John Stonestreet..

"Yeah you see the story of why a lot of woke Democrats can't stand mayor Pete did you know that to be true mom's not gay enough is not one of the big concerns that has been a concern over time yes but it's not just that okay it's other things too one is they think he is the worst kind of millennial have you ever heard that before now okay try to explain this the way they would say well what he's not socialist okay now yeah so in the younger you are the more social this tendency is you would have according to theory would you say there is true David I think that's true yeah okay and so it you know that if he wins Iowa and New Hampshire he could block Bernie Sanders path the end of the young socialists they don't like that about him because he's just not socialist enough okay the reason they think he's a traitor to his generation what a traitor to his generation yeah that's a good one that's what it says no I know I believe you yeah it's just a remarkable thing to say yes is because he appeals mostly to middle aged and older white voters so in this way his candidacy violates a certain unwritten law of U. S. electoral politics American voters have historically appreciated candidates who from a socio economic perspective identify down like Franklin D. Roosevelt was a traitor to the upper class you know trump is the real estate billionaire who speaks for coal miners you following along with this thinking with major Pete major Pete ground mayors role to may be very your pate may your primaries all if it says it does who appear to identify up like a young nine millionaire small town mayor who aligns himself with cosmopolitan capital identifying down can be a proxy for authenticity but identifying up makes you seem like you're not real so that's one of the knocks on him okay another is they just think he's a liar I think that's true yeah he he's you know toward the center the last few months he initially seem to support Medicare for all and now he openly criticizes the effect would have on private insurance employment so as they say he initially propose radical government reforms like you know back in the Supreme Court removing the filibuster but now he's recast himself as a moderate unifier they're like the guys just a liar so he's not gay enough nor is he insane enough yes okay got it I do I always appreciate it when someone can be called a traitor to their generation by basically saying no to socialism yeah I would say anybody arguing for socialism is a traitor to their generation given the generation looks at socialism as a great thing that we should embrace the last thing they said is young people project an extreme hostility toward mayor mayor Pete not major pate coming in at in part to exercise their own anxieties about success and increase their in group status that makes sense yeah yeah do that totally does and I just thought of a reason why mayor Pete is totally that indie band that people liked it is soon as he made it big they said well the first album was better and he's sold out right basically now that he signed with a major label Bryce sold out year has successfully meet and that sucks right we'll have none of that success stuff yeah just trying to figure that out sometime give orchard in a way he's been the most interesting candidate because of the democratic voters some seem to embrace symbol right away we think it's time to have an openly gay candidates run for president but other people it was the it though strangers one to me was not gay enough and they are still very much in play from what I read what I understand I think the one thing that I will say to me Pete's credit I is that he is one of the only candidate to apparently realizes that the people who are criticizing him for not being gay and off and all this nonsense that's out there it's the same block of voters who don't actually show up on election day that's true and he ignores them in a larger in large part not always I mean he is still sitting there nodding in agreement when somebody says that illegal M. immigrants are just here to take back land that was stolen I mean he still does that idiotic stuff yeah but I mean he's desperate also for the black vote right and he's not going to get it by all appearances so that whole thing just kind of then the water anyway let's get the one we have time of James Comey on being vindicated because this guy's so full of crap now yeah this deserves to get played yeah I had time yet so so he's on fox news Sunday talking to Chris Wallace in the plays the back to back audio of James Comey talking with C. N. N.'s Anderson Cooper about being vindicated by the IG report followed by a clip of the idea Michael Horowitz answering the same question okay roll this thing do you think this is a vindication it is does your report vindicate Mr call me it doesn't indicate anyone if you have a guy who touch this including the leadership okay then so so call me on fox news Sunday responded as such the I. G.'s says you should feel no vindication well maybe turns upon that we understand the word what I mean is there news of illegal spying of capping Mr trump's wires illegally of opening sophistication without justification of being a criminal conspiracy to unseat defeat and then on see the president all of that was nonsense I think it's really important that the inspector general looked at that working people your viewers and all viewers understand that's true but he also found things that we were never accused of which is real sloppiness and that's concerning pins on what your definition of education it is what is this the fifth right now in one yeah we just go away yes James Syme okay just go away something else you gotta get to Starbucks there apologizing again mmhm there is now a third anti.
"mayor pete" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"The opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac Watch. Welcome back on Paul Zhigo with Kim Strassel and bill mcgurn and related to our conversation. Asian about Elizabeth Warren and Medicare fallbrook Obama for two-term president of the United States easily. The most popular Democrat in the country still Ah after he has left office is came out on a late last week on Friday and said that Democrats have to be careful with offering too much change in the presidential election because he said that voters are American. Voters do want some forward looking agenda but they are wary of blowing up. The whole system and I thought that that was an implicit rebuke. Bill of the warn agenda and of the Sanders Agenda and and the idea that You want to take away for example. We didn't mention it but one hundred seventy million private health insurance insurance policies and he said you know you need to be able to propose something that is incremental So obamacare was one thing build on that. Don't go in terms of big blowing up the whole system and a government takeover voters won't buy it or they'll be reluctant to buy it. A striking intervention wasn't a endorsement of Joe Biden his former vice president but but it was about as close as you're going to get from Brock Obama. Yeah I'm a little more cynical had it because I think what he's saying is absolutely correct. Don't sell this huge huge transformational thing and remember he campaigned. There's no blue America. There's Red America. I think what he's really saying. Campaign in these modest moderate tones and then once you get in there do whatever the hell you want and throw it all out and up and all these rules and so forth but that is the smart way to do it right tonight. Your healthcare plan your healthcare plan. You can keep it. Oh that's mean that famous That famous plan Kim it. I think the advice is is is I think he's I think. Elizabeth Warren is going to be asked about this and should be asked about this if the moderators the debate have their wits about them. It's a central element of how you're going to defeat whether night which way you go to defeat Donald trump well let's see if the moderators moderators. Actually go there. I don't hold a lot of hope in that regard ple but but just in terms of Barack Obama's comments look at the subject. We were just discussing which which was Medicare for all you know back. When Barack Obama was instituting this sweeping new agenda for healthcare which really was the most radical thing? The the American public had ever seen His administration made a conscious decision not to even go for the public option because they felt that that would be a bridge too. So far with voters We're not that far along from that date And and yet we now have candidates every single Democratic candidate. There is already already out in favor of the public option. And then you have. Several more. That are advocating getting rid of healthcare for everyone private healthcare for everyone in the country that is a radical Michael Agenda and just his pointing it out it. It is very sound advice. But it's notable to me that the most progressive president that we've ever had in this country Felt the need to tell US party to slow down. Yeah it's fascinating to me. Let's talk about The peed booed edge edge experience as James James Freeman. Our colleague. Put it in his Rather Woodley in his column headline Pete Is Mayor. Pete Mayor South Bend gaining Rather markedly in Iowa Woah. He is Now the leader in the register poll of highly credible poll. It's been quite accurate in the past and about The Iowa caucuses and now he is The front runner he has surpassed Biden and Bernie and Elizabeth Warren and So there's gotta be some than going out there also his fundraising has been a really really good Nationally he's running about eight percent but he's now the clear clear front runner in the Des Moines poll and I think has to be considered as a serious player bill for the nomination. We're still a long way out but I still still think he is Somebody who's Certainly certainly could win your. I'm looking at the real clear politics averages and you made a point in our editorial meeting earlier Bouche still fourth in the national polls eight point three percent but in Iowa he's number one in twenty one percent right so that can change you win. I will all of a sudden you are a real candidate and it changes a lot of the and it will affect the other national polls down the road and the and the succeeding succeeding contests and New Hampshire Nevada South Carolina. He's basically taken the place of Kamala Harris who was trailing at four and so forth as a serious candidate. He has a couple of pluses he has military background. I'm he speaks well on stage I don't I don't agree with most of what he says. He's articulate. Think his record. It's terrible but he speaks well on presents himself well on stage. I think he's enjoyed something of a honeymoon because when they think he really might get the brass ring. I think the attacks are GONNA come out. You already see some of it. You know amy. Klobuchar said that no woman with experience as thin as his would be on on that stage. I think there's a lot of resentment up there. Some of it may be over his fundraising prowess where he's very good. And it'll be interesting at this debate to see see when you when you rise as Elizabeth one out you get attacked well and Amy Klobuchar. Intervention is is Important because Kim. She has always always thought of herself. As a Minnesota senator as having a real chance in Iowa to make breakthrough she has a certain Midwest. Sensibility that would work. You would think in and I and Iowa. She's trying to operate in the same lane which is more centrist lane within the party. Not Off in the Warren and Sanders Land and and Yet as an alternative to Joe Biden so by Compete Mayor Pete with his rise is really taking some of the support report that she had hoped to get to rise at the last in the last couple of months in Iowa so I would expect to see Koba Char may be go after Pete Pete In the days ahead yeah. I would almost count on that because he is crowding her out. She made a determination early on her campaign pain that she was going to follow the Iowa strategy and really try to capitalize on her greater name. Id there And use it to catapult her Into a better position nationally. I think where she has struggled. And where mayor. Pete is outshining her as he has received so much national attention and that it has really allowed him to fundraise like crazy and then he has taken that money and in the same way she had the same intention. He's been pouring during it into Iowa buying more than two million dollars worth of TV spots zipped since September. I think he's had nearly four thousand spots on the air. That is clearly translating translating into something and the state The one caveat I would offer here in it's not just the national polls but if we had another poll out just recently about out South Carolina which is the third in the country And it's Quinnipiac poll Biden there gets twenty two percent of the white boat and Buddha judge gets eleven percent but then listen to this number biting gets forty four percent of the black vote and Buddha judge gets zero and I'm not missing a number there he he has got a track down a few individuals. I'm sure somewhere in the state who are for peace somewhere but he does have a big issue with minorities minorities which do make up a significant portion of the democratic electorate. There was a Telemundo poll from October Nationwide showing he got two percent of the Hispanic Spanish. Vote nationwide. So you know you can do well in Iowa but at a certain point you also have to translate back. That's that's got translate to other states and right now he has some big issues. Well Excellent point but Peter saying look if I can go to the front in I will that will galvanize media attention and Perhaps catapult me into a serious Person in New Hampshire. If you win New Hampshire and then Nevada before you go to south China can go in there with a with a real head of steam now. A- people who've won I wa have faltered before her Howard Dean comes to mind as one But on the other hand all of the recent democratic presidents who've or the the people who won the nomination have done very well in Iowa Al Gore won Iowa for example Barack Obama won Iowa and Hillary Sorry Clinton or the last time. If I'm not mistaken one Iowa so you have I was not a and John Kerry Now how did he win Iowa or not yes he did he did win Iowa so In two thousand four so that called catapulted them to them nation so I wouldn't under estimate the did the importance of Mayor Pete Win in Iowa. I think you're right palm. That's clearly his strategy. But again I do think that. He's benefited from people. People not taking a hard look at his record yet because he hasn't really been quite is threatening until very recently and Kim points out he has zero African African American support and not only that he has a black lives matter problem back in his in his home. City shootings are up and so forth and so forth heated up in the summer and then it receded but I think if he becomes serious serious. That people think you'll get it. This is going to Activate a lot of those people with protests. There'd be people they'll be reporters New York Times reporters in South Bend and so forth To look at his actual record to see if that's really where this country he wants to go and finally one other development in the Democratic presidential race Mike Bloomberg not formally in yet but nonetheless marching towards visit took the time to register to File his papers and Arkansas. Last week to some media attention. He's aiming at Super Tuesday. Tuesday so-called in the first week of March which will be after all of the early contests. We've been talking about but many many states on that day I believe including Texas and California. They'll be big A big number of delegates at stake so looks like Bloomberg is getting in. The best sign may be that he is going to get in Kim that he backtracked now and issued his regrets for his policy during twelve years of mayor. Rest stop and Frisk which was The policy of approaching people police approaching people who they suspected may have a have a reasonable suspicion. Bishen of having a firearm. You could check to see if they in fact did highly controversial on the political left and always defended by Mike Bloomberg in offers but now he says he actually should have ended it much sooner than he did. This is discouraging to me. I mean I agree with you that this is probably probably a a reason to believe that he is going to jump into the race when you start apologizing to the democratic electorate for things you have done in the past. It usually usually as a sign that you are preparing your pathway but you know one of the things..
"mayor pete" Discussed on What A Day
"Now. It's time for a quick impeachment. News blast Lakenham Aleikum like an ice machine with a big scooper like someone's scooping outside the hotel ice last in Ukraine. Of course we're now in week. Two view of public hearings and while trump continues to bully witnesses via his twitter account. The hearings are picking up speed with eight eight witnesses scheduled to testify this week. Only three retested last week. It all starts on Tuesday. We're going to hear from Lieutenant. Colonel Alexander Vin men. It's the top Ukraine expert on the White House National Security Council Missile Jennifer Williams and aid to Vice President Mike Pence Kurt Volcker the former. US special envoy to Ukraine and Tim Morrison a Europe and Russia's special expert on the National Security Council all star team women and Morrison were on the infamous and perfect July twenty fifth phone call that was between trump and Ukrainian president Zilenski in which the whole quid pro quo happened. Where trump tried to get the presents you look for dirt on Joe Biden Son? Now this is the first time that we're going to hear publicly from witnesses with with a first hand account that call now that is what Republicans last week. We're saying that they wanted. We'll see how they respond this week. I think we know Wednesday is definitely gonNA bring another tripleheader of witnesses we're going to hear from. US Ambassador to the E. U Gordon Sunland. That's like the most highly anticipated testimony And plus the the Defense Department official Laura Cooper State Department official David Hale. They're also going to be testifying. Yeah and and while they're going to be interesting. I think a lot of people are going to be paying attention to sign lind Aka The rich guy who gave trump million dollars so he could become the ambassador to the EU AKA. The same guy who. I testify that there was no quid pro quo. But then later reverses private testimony to is he there was in fact a quid pro quo and it was one of the. He Explicitly Laid Out Aka. The Guy who took a really loud phone call from president trump at a restaurant that could be overheard by people in in close proximity in which silent allegedly told trump. That celeski quote loves your ASS. This is a real thing and we'll quote do anything you ask of him. Yeah all right and and then on Thursday. We'll hear from another National Security Council official Fiona Hill. She's expected to get questions about the Ukraine scandal which she has described as a quote nightmare situation nation. And what her boss John Bolton thought about it and that was your impeachment news blast last week we told about Rodney. Read a black man on death row in Texas who is scheduled to be executed this Wednesday for a nineteen ninety-six murder. He maintains he did not commit on Friday. After a groundswell around twelve support to reopen his case and after his lawyers filed new witness testimonies the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has granted a stay his execution which is to say he will not be executed succeeded this week. Yeah it's rare to get good news in these sorts of cases so I I was actually very shocked to find out that his scheduled execution has been postponed so so in terms of what happens next the case has to go back to Bastrop County Texas. That's where the court will review the claims put forth by read and his defense team. This is likely gonNA take several months. Because you know it's a high profile case now And it also may result in multiple hearings where they actually do comb through the new evidence and details tells the trial court. Judge is then going to make what are known as conclusions of Law And that's where she decides. She's compelled by the new information. Finally the case case is GonNa go back to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Who will then have the right to decide the next steps if the evidence exonerating you know? That's that's in their wheelhouse right right right right and so just sticking back for a second here for those of us who aren't necessarily familiar with the details of this case. What are the things that they need to know about? Okay so I'm going to read through these facts. I don't want to get anything wrong. So bear with me but here are the details. You need to know this entire case revolves around the murder of Stacey States She's a white woman. She was murdered in Nineteen ninety-six. DNA evidence showed that Rodney Reed had sexual contact with her and an all white jury convicted him based on that evidence alone In this case you know as it stands now has been described as like a real life to kill a mockingbird so Rodney Reed and his defense have contended like a few important things so the first is that Reid had a consensual relationship with stacy sites even as she was engaged to Jimmy Fennel who is a white police officer basically the same officer was convicted of kidnapping and raping a woman while on duty in two thousand seven. He's been behind bars ever since. The Texas Tribune reported that officer fennel was initially questioned in the death of his fiancee and was found to be quote deceptive on two polygraph tests In a sworn affidavit an inmate that was serving time simultaneously defense claims that the former police officer confessed to killing stacy sites in often complained about how she was sleeping with a black man behind his back. This is according to the Statesman which is Local Austin paper. The Austin Chronicle also reported that fills eventual eventual wife. So this is a different woman. The murdered woman told a man that she was being abused by fennel and that she worried that he had murdered his previous fiance and and finally the innocence project which is an organization whose mission is to exonerate wrongfully incarcerated people through DNA evidence claims that finals best friend at the time of the murder. which which is bastrop? Sheriff's officer Curtis Davis has revealed that Phil gave an inconsistent account of where he was on the night of the murder and when he was pressed on the discrepancy in his account. He refused to testify. So I know this isn't a true crime podcast but with all these details laid out. It's raising a lot of questions around ex officer. All finals lawyer has dismissed. The claims as untrue. Just want to put that out there. Okay okay so I heard this from you and I talking about it and we were getting ready for the show. I think a couple of weeks ago I mean. How did you originally find out about it and can you talk a little bit about how it it gained traction sort of naturally? Yeah so when we were first discussing it was sort would've just like tweets and that is really how I found out so if individuals were tweeting about it in a few days after that People started making full full instagram's stories saying like you know. Look into this. This seems really messed up. And that was sort of the beginning of this windfall of celebrities. Kim Kardashian. Riana beyond on Oprah. They shared the petition to stay his execution and review this new evidence to date. Almost three million people have signed the Change Dot Org petition petition in his name. And I think what's really interesting about how this story picked up. Traction is that while everyone is doing their own research and forming opinions unions about it. There's also this ticking clock because he was scheduled to be executed on November twentieth. which is this Wednesday and I think that because of that people felt like their calls to action more urgent and people sort of heated them because of it one thing that is interesting though about all of this is that you know we live in this internet time? I'm the social media time and I think influences get a lot of flack but we are increasingly relying on influencers to save people's lives whether that's you know an inmate who's who's on death row or people who have expensive medical emergencies and you know they have to go fund me. I do think that we can't discount the impact of of influencers. SANTERRE's yeah I mean I don't I don't disagree but I also think it is a sad thing it's sort of like you know the luck of the draw that this this was the guy who ended up being filtered up to these places and you know that it takes that amount of kind of rattling people's attention to even get to this point. Well in this case it does seem like time will tell Rodney. Reid is fully exonerated but it. It is good to know that the courts are actually starting to look into the details of this case format for sure and also I just WanNa say a lot of this reporting and coverage took place in local local newspaper outlets the Austin Chronicle the Texas Tribune the Houston Chronicle so without their investigation and reporting. This story may not have stayed in headlines May not have gotten as much coverage so I would encourage everyone to support your local paper now some ads so it's almost holiday season. Unless you're John Lovett. Because you know for him. The holiday season has been happening since the day after Halloween Louis and since he rediscovered his hatred for candy corn. Yeah and you know what we could media are getting a head start on celebrating some new holiday merge in the cricket store that is right. We have your favorite potsy of America in front of the Pod t shirts and sweatshirts no friend of the Wad yet but maybe at some point soon and we added a bunch of new stuff.

Check it out store. I'll give you my for what and now back to the chap.
"mayor pete" Discussed on What A Day
"On today's show the latest in the twenty twenty days what to expect this week and impeachment news used and an update on death. Row Inmate. Rodney read there is yet another democratic debate coming up on Wednesday night and we thought it'd be a good time to get everybody up to speed on a few developing story lines in the twenty twenty presidential race as a rule. I think we're going to try not to chase pulls and horse race stuff daily on here but it's good to check in on broader themes and trends as we go forward. Yeah that's right so lots of pressing news is happening all the time and I personally I just feel like twenty twenty is it feels further away that it is. I get that Ed but I just I haven't been following closely but this is your wheelhouse Gideon even on the trailer for your super into this stuff. What should we know? Yeah I mean I think from this weekend I mean you're right in the fact that it is very far away we should take everything in stride because you know things have changed like day to day but I I think the theme of the weekend itself was that the Pete bump the booty bump is sort of real at least for now There was another des Moines Register poll from Iowa that had add the southbound Merrin first place at twenty five percents And then behind him. You Know Senator Warren at sixteen former Vice President Joe Biden a fifteen senator Sanders At fifteen so he's been kind of steady climbing up in in Iowa. Wow Yeah he's really doing it but I mean it's it's still early. Yeah Yeah am I wrong about this. It's it's it's November. Yeah especially it is November especially especially for this kind of race right. We don't exactly ever know what's going to happen with Iowa because it is is a unique state it has unique caucus process in the past. You know we've seen polls around this time leading up to it where where they haven't exactly matched the final result and the theme of this particular primary seems to be that everyone is shopping around all the time like like people people lead in polls than you look at it more closely and it's like a massive percentage of people are still making up their minds and if you made them a casserole at your Cedar. Peter Rabbit's house like maybe they would come around to your something. Okay got it so then. Why is Pete doing so well right now specifically yeah I think they made a big play for Iowa? I think they unrealized early on. Okay this guy. Caught on with media through like a cohesive strategy that we had earlier this year we've really sort of built him up from Basically nothing and I don't mean that in a d like offensive way like the guy was a mayor of a place where he right where he won I think less than ten thousand votes votes to be elected and then they made this huge sort of financial. Push their yeah. He's in the cover story on this month because he really well. He's he's like the stories listed on. Okay well basically the same thing It makes you feel better. So long as he's on the cover of Vanity Fair. I think his odds will be okay. He's he's not in a room button to on a dirt road. It's not too soon. I apologize but I think the other thing that that his unique success is in Iowa right now is saying to some of the other candidates particularly because when you look at all of the polling for for Mayor Pete. That's the place where he's doing the best and then in a lot of these other polls of other states and other national stuff you go down the line for minority voters and he is clocking like zero or low. Oh single digits and that sort of bring up this conversation from people like Castro who frankly doesn't have that much more to lose in this race anymore like really kind of swinging at the fences at him like he was saying like. It's not a good idea to have somebody lead the party. Who is not going to be able to win minority voters so? I think it's an interesting conversation. That people are having right now about it. Yeah definitely a legit Combo but also I think it's interesting to see this sort of mayor on mayor bashing and speaking the mayor's kind of want to check in on this our old friend. Our old rich billionaire friend Michael Bloomberg Elba obidos apparently for real about this renting steps. It can we talk about the the headlines from the weekend yes so Bloomberg after last week. Sort of thinking about running maybe filing in a couple of places toying with it. He went out in Brooklyn Glen. I think on Sunday and apologize for his. Stop and Frisk Policy. That was basically. It wasn't a one off thing. Let's try it for the year type of thing like it was embedded in his legacy as mayor of the city. Here's what he had to say about it. I got something important wrong. I I got something important really wrong. I didn't understand that back them. The full impact that stocks were having on the black and Latino communities. I was totally focused on saving lives but as we know good intentions aren't good enough. Well I mean the evidence has been sort of clear at least in the last decade or so that you know the this policy the effects that it was having from the New York Times of five hundred seventy five thousand stops conducted in two thousand nine black and Latino people were nine times as likely as white people to be targeted by the police allow shocking. Right in twenty eleven. Police officer stopped often questioned about six hundred. eighty-five thousand New Yorkers Eighty seven percent of those. That were stopped. We're black or Latino and a federal district. Judge ruled that the Frisk policy had been carried out in an unconstitutional way in twenty thirteen. Yeah it's just horrible. And it's reflective of his policies in New York you know Bloomberg pioneered this form of aggressive policing that sort of spun off from you know Giuliani's broken windows policies which you know basically you just ask questions later and you invade invade people's privacy and space now you know a lot of ways that made him a hero among police officers but it was very scary being like a black brown person living in the city of that time And like you know I was around that time as well but I do think it's interesting that you know he realizes and I think everyone realizes that to win the Democratic nomination you have to have the support of those communities black and Brown communities and it's a little cliche but also often the case that people you know who've done something something that's widely deemed as racist or at least carried out in a racist fashion You know now. They're relying on a Black Church of people to forgive him so that he can like have their blessing to continue and Yeah I just think that for one that feels outdated and twenty nine. Yeah that's not how you're GONNA get to the community that was most affected acted by this but also I think that it would be right for black people and you know any people of color to be skeptical about a candidate given his actual record. Well Yeah and also Oh for Bloomberg. It's difficult to to know win. And how he's being earnest about. What is he saying? Because part of why this came off breath as so nakedly opportunistic to a lot of people is the fact that in March he said that part of the reason why he wasn't running for president then this was literally just this year was because he didn't want to apologize for things like this and turn it into what he was calling a quote apology tour because he was saying the other candidates had been basically almost soft in a sense because they were reflecting on their own legacies and what they themselves have done well like like we set up top. We've got another debate coming this week. It's being hosted in Atlanta Tyler Perry studios which means we can probably expect a joke from Amy Klobuchar. Will it land. Let's find out but what should we all be paying attention to for this specific debate and I'm asking for a friend not as somebody who has watch it and yet does not want to. Yeah right well I mean I think probably a lot of more of the same But I think that given what we said about Buddha judge judge above my guess is that he's GonNa face a lot of new scrutiny whenever somebody is deemed front runner in a race and especially a person like him him. That hasn't necessarily been the focus of a lot of these sort of attacks between the candidates yet. I think I think there's going to be a lot trained at him. There's going to be more on. Healthcare again a medicare for all senator warrants plans Medicare for all those are probably the two main flashpoints for now but on Wednesday will be covering the debate is always. It's probably the last time that there will be ten candidates on stage at once very sad until of course our own Wa debate to which all are welcome including twenty-six Democratic presidential a hopeful Lincoln. Chafee who really wanted to get on board with the metric system honestly. I don't agree. I like feet okay. So someone's GonNa cut that part of the. I can't say I like feet. You knew what I meant. I think it's a fine a unit of measurement. I don't think that you know you don't have to fix it. John Lennon just coming up. All right we'll be back with debate steph later this week.
"mayor pete" Discussed on The Argument
"Plants. Shut off power to nearly a million customers. There's an effort to prevent wildfires from sparking Michelle. I find this story really depressing and alarming. I find it terrifying and I feel like for a long time we all were reading about what the horrors of climate change. Were going to bring right that. There was this precipice that we are on the edge of and now. We're we're sort of here. We're sort of in this apocalyptic world and we're not all the way in it it's GonNa get worse. But we're in this apocalyptic world of internal climate refugees and and people walking around major cities with gas masks. Because there's ash falling out of the sky. I have a feeling that if the eastern seaboard was was suffering from rolling blackouts and droves of people left homeless I think just because of the concentration of the media there would be much more more of a sense of national crisis as opposed to just this thing that sort of happening over there. One of the things that I find. Frustrating is would feels to me like this his pretty vague case that because California's liberal. It is somehow responsible for the fires there as opposed to climate change and what California is is. It's got a lot of forest being responsible. Ross I mean do you think I'm just being too dismissive of that. Is there like an actual case that California deserves blame for these fires. Fires in its specifically progressive policies. Deserve blame for these fires. I guess what it says that the fire problem is a problem of climate change. But it's also a problem of public policy and public policy in California is completely controlled by the Democratic Party and there there have in fact been many pieces written arguing that California represents the glorious golden political future for the United States. Once we get rid of Trumpian revanchism and reduce the Republican Party to forty percent of the electorate and in that sense. I think it's kind of understandable that outside observers rivers especially conservatives observers say well here's the political situation in the political system that you want we don't have any more of those annoying Republicans fouling things up. Why can't you figure out how to thin your trees and bury your power lines? And they'll denser cities so that sprawl doesn't run out into to forests because this isn't all climate change problem. It's also a way California's built problem in the way California's bill reflects in some sense. The political priorities produce of estate. That is sort of a laboratory for liberalism. Is I would say two things. I lived in San Francisco for a while and there. Is this Nimby. ISM This resistance since two density that is really gross and a big problem and so in that sense. It's not so much a consequence of liberalism as much as a consequence of not living up to your putative liberal ideas and the way that density impacts. This is that because housing is so so incredibly expensive in California and there's not enough being built people are their sprawling out into these areas that are more prone to wildfires in the they're sort of more destruction of homes and property one way that California is sort of a vanguard for the rest of the United States is that even if the United States follows in California's wake as demographic change making it more liberal and making you know the Republican Party reducing the Republican Party to a sad rumpus. It deserves There's already kind of structural things that conservative Republicans have been able to build in that are are going to take generations to overcome right and so in the country at large. That's the courts in California's proposition. Thirteen this Nineteen seventy eight a law that caps property taxes at these often really absurdly low rates. And that a lot of people who've looked at this say hey is partially responsible for the extremely high cost of new residential construction in California total liberal control and California's actually relatively new and a lot of these problems the incredible corruption of PG any the way. The public utilities are structured to provide.

"The Macarena and it should be pointed out they won. They won that year you know a mock arena was a hit also. It's a different time. Now Yeah they were writing up against other complete door. I just have a hard time seeing him holding his own next to Donald Trump on stage. Just you know in terms of how how he comes across an energetically but that's neither heard more important stuff but to consider right. It's the the they have an ad on his website website to enter to win tickets to see Hamilton with my husband. So wild why would I want to go with Justin to like. It's yeah so you know I didn't want to get too much into every single thing. He's done or his platform. Because I don't think that matters as much as knowing in the kind of politician he is and so again I want to shame him into basically just reading what he wrote in high school and dropping out and supporting Bernie side leftists. Have somebody bring it up with him like Oh we found this essay that you wrote in high school all all about Bernie Sanders and everything being interesting place to jump off to talk about your political evolution. I suppose Do you still believe from this. It's interesting that a lot of your career sort of opposed to this essay. So I'm just gonNA close it out. With Pete. Buddha judge on his endorsement -dorsements Bernie Sanders for President Sanders positions on many difficult issues are commendable but his real impact has been as a reaction to the cynical climate which threatens the effectiveness of the democratic system his energy candor conviction and ability to bring people together stand against the current of opportunism moral oral compromise and partisanship which runs rampant on the American political scene. He and few others like him have the power to restore principal and leadership in Congress Congress and to win back the faith of voting public weary and wary of political opportunism above all I commend Bernie Sanders for giving me an answer to those who say American. Young people see politics as a cesspool of corruption beyond redemption. I have heard that no sensible young person today would want to give his or her life to public service. I can personally assure you this is untrue. That is a resounding endorsement of Bernie Sanders. That he wrote. When he was eighteen resounding outdoorsman again? I convinced me. I think it speaks to that Robbery you're talking about earlier like he just wants to be be in office. That's what is evolution is sort of happened very much like the politics. There's like an aspect of that. That's like that's defensible. Because obviously if you don't win office you can't do anything and so I am on that side of it. It's like it's better to have a moderate Democrat in there are than a literal fascist because you can push the moderate Democrats living time. I've lived through the last twenty years and I watched watched a guy abroad Obama who was kind of similar in some ways to Buddha Jews but actually took more stances when he was running for president ever further to the left and still ran right to the center even the center right when he actually got into office. And so I'm looking at Buda judge and I'm going number one. The fact Barack Obama ran to the center allowed the Republicans to push this country even further to the right by two thousand sixteen in number two If Buddha the judge won't even go as far as Obama did in two thousand eight to the left like we're just GONNA get pushed out by the time if he wins by twenty twenty by twenty twenty four. We'll be even further further right like we can't survive. It's hard because I do understand. It's hard to get your liberal shit done when and we've got so many conservatives in the Senate and Congress I understand that but it if there's something that we need to have learned from from the past twenty years that you have to be bolder and more aggressive you can't just be like Amelie Wishy Washy Democrat gold and you have to fight really hard and I don't obviously see that in right and I think that there's a The another lesson from twenty sixteen aside from that is that mm above all else Even though he lives in a literal Golden Tower There's a very large anti-establishment sentiment that is driving politics. These days and everything you think Pete says and his entire career Is that his time at McKinsey and Company has taught him how to be that and talk like that and talk. Talk somebody that you can't really trust. Yeah he's sounds like a part of the stablishment there's a deep hunger for authenticity and hunger for a politician who's going to take a stance like Pete Pete knows this because he quotes JFK constantly JFK. Didn't get up there and say we choose to go to the moon or wherever like right like there was a there was a bold and risky in and daring stance which is why we remember JFK. Okay aside from the getting shot thing like he was a guy who would take a fucking who would call his shot and it was a far shot in Buda. Judge is a butter yes but also called his shot a year ago and was very clear about about that and then he overtime alums bunt a little bit and now we get things he's like. I think it could very well be the long run destination and having glide path to this thing that we actually want the Republicans Qin's didn't glide into putting people in camps. They just went for it. And now there's people are issued it in Yeah yeah dropped in there like well. Now they're in camps. Well I guess even putting camps for a while also true and yes yes yes yes but they share parachuted into ramping. That up all right well. It's time for us to wrap this up Thanks again. Cody for doing all that If you guys would blank.

"We get into Pete's current plan. I'd like to quickly go through. Some healthcare industry donors to people to judge To nineteen in board these are all about. Between like two thousand thousand six thousand dollars executives at Decibel Therapeutics Truman Medical Centers ironwood pharmaceuticals Aztecs pharmaceuticals the director terrific anthem. Blue Cross Blue Shield and Norton healthcare. Surely they support single payer health shirley hair you know who else probably does spicer. If I know Pfizer. They love people having access to healthcare adventisthealth Cello Health Kaiser Foundation Asian health plan. These are just some of the many men get the idea. I believe you get the idea. Here is according to peace website. His Medicare for all want because health care is a human right guarantee universal coverage through Medicare for all who want the Medicare for all on public alternative will help. America reached universal coverage by providing an affordable insurance option to the currently uninsured. The Public Alternative Alternative will provide the same essential health benefits as those currently available on the marketplaces and ensure that everyone has access to high quality comprehensive offensive coverage. Love the word access. It's a good word. If you cut the word access out then it would just be saying everybody has a high quality healthcare coverage right had the word access. I wonder if that changes the meaning of the sentence. I you know what Robert Good Point I think it does it. Might it might does it might does I. It always frustrates me. This conversation Medicare for all who want and it just inherently means not medicare for all. Well Yeah it just means that people that participation whereas people can't afford it. I I imagine him sitting down with some guy going the early stages of insulin shock because he can't afford fourteen hundred dollars a month for his insulin because it costs more than his rent in being like do you want want healthcare and the guy saying like Yes for the love of God pleased him saying okay. Well you want healthcare. It's going to cost you fourteen hundred dollars a month. Do you have fourteen fourteen hundred dollars a month. No we didn't want healthcare. You had the access to it. You hear the offer but you didn't want it so you didn't want it enough. I wanted enough love. Yeah this is a an issue that I think other candidates could be a little stronger on communicating. The whole point is of insurance. Is that a Healthy people everybody pays in. You see healthy people also pay wealthy people also pay so that the sick people can get that access and if you have all these private insurance companies that are tied to your employment and then you have this public option of like well if you need it you have this. That's not going to be a very good plan. Because the people who have very good jobs and the good insurance paying into the Medicare and so that that will actually not get to what we want it to be One interesting sentence also on his website. The plan will automatically enroll individuals affordable coverage if they are eligible for it if they're eligible for it and yet at the very top it says because health care is a human right if healthcare eligible logistical than other than being alive and human interesting. I guess I guess we'll have to read the fine print so we have the right to a lawyer. Yeah and there's no eligibility there. You don't have to run through hoops anything other than you get a lawyer. Yeah and and so if you're saying healthcare human right but you're also putting in this way Maybe maybe you don't actually mean that. Don't actually mean that maybe don't actually mean that. Maybe you learned. He has a what's his definition of human. I feel like nobody's asking that maybe he has a very narrow definition of human that status certain income that is we have freedom of speech in the United States for humans. But you're not a human if you put on a mask. The police can fire tear-gas grenades into your skull. So maybe it's SORTA like that. Maybe maybe maybe maybe we'll have to ask is Pete when he's on this show for sure so I like to play one clip Real quick totally fully here Pete's approach to politics and just the utter smarmy that he uses when he talks about this issue. He's being asked by George. Stephanopoulos is your main argument against Medicare for all. Now how is that. It can't get past or that it won't work. And here's what Buddha judge has to say about that you used to be for broader Medicare for you didn't qualified at any way is your main arguments against Medicare for all now that it can't get past that it won't work. I think it could very well be the a long run destination but I think there's got to be some humility in our policy here Let's put this out there and see if it's really the best plan for everybody. I think it will be the best plan but I'm not willing to assume that it is the right plan for you out of Washington and order you to take whether you want to or not. If it's the right plan then everybody everybody will move to it until it is single player pair and if it's not the right plan for everybody then we're going to be really glad we didn't kick some Americans off their private plants. I'm thinking for example example but a lot of union members who fought negotiated for good plans. They have today. They don't WanNa have to abandon those plans because Washington tells them they must. I do that in four years or less. It doesn't make sense in the most important thing is we can get to universal healthcare coverage without putting America through all of that without kicking people off their private plans without Disagreements to the tune of ten or fifteen trillion dollars over how much this is gonNa cost which is equivalent to the entire. GDP of the country We have a plan that is affordable that has is paid for and that allows you to choose instead of Washington for you. And it's the boldest thing we will have done to American healthcare in a half century. What a politician's Titians answer the utter smart of that like I? The first thing he says is we have to have humility. The last thing he says it's the boldest plan we can and get in half a century. It's like so interesting how it doesn't quite make sense like yeah I think in the long run is very well. Could be but you know. Not if it's for everybody does. That's not what they want so we're going to have to wait and see what people want. Yes what are you saying. He's not saying anything anything. That's and that's the thing with this. Mackenzie nonsense you're not actually saying anything When he talks about humility what does he mean because he's also talking about a bold plan also speaking of humility? You were mayor for like two two times and I want to be the president of a country. It's an lamble very very humble. There's a phrase that he says the very beginning. I think it could very well be the long run destination right that so many qualifiers to not actually say anything. It's not saying anything about what you want. It's not this bold new plan. It's nothing and he's just a real piece of of wonderful politician. As I've said I am a judge. You guys want to know how many votes Pete has received in his life that that gave him the physician that he has. Unless you already know please I would guess under ten thousand votes eight thousand five hundred fifteen. What strength of eight hundred on a ticket? Talk to me. And we have to be fair to pete which is by saying that like the. The current president had zero votes ever before he became the president so we are in a different era. You know it is astounding thing. Yeah Yeah and in light of everything. We've already talked about how we've certain essays we've read from Pete Yeah He's the least bold person he's an empty vessel It really seems that is. He's got a lot of languages. Got Got a lot of languages I I think he's a very intelligently everything you're saying paints a picture of me a very intelligent very ambitious person who actually actually does believe things or at least did at one point but who believes more than anything else that he should be in office because that that's that's clearly like with sanders that's the whole point.

"Talk about one more early state does South Carolina which is the gateway to the rest of the country and I think has always been extraordinarily important and we'll be again so to question is about South Carolina one has the situation An issue with the South Bend Police Department caused you guys difficulty in building support in the African American me in South Carolina and secondly as you think about growing your African American support is that reliant on Joe Biden underperforming an Iowa New Hampshire so that more of his African American support is available whether that's to you or Warren how do you guys think about those two questions yeah I think you know to your first one it was a really really unfortunate situation in our community around an issue that is really visceral and real for a lot of people and I think it shows you the job the type the type of job that Mayor Pete has mayors often deal with intractable problems and and business and poverty and race and policing housing really thorny issues like that that disproportionately impact communities of Color is very very real and so that's something that we haven't we haven't shied away from I think to sort a couple of the questions together I think you know we're we're ready not new to the scene as I mentioned our growth from January to now and so we are up against some very very well known names in the party namely Joe Biden who is is really revered by African American voters through his service with Barack Obama and have had careers for very long time I think that a few things that we've done I think will help us expand as we move forward I think that we've hired team that is is diverse within forty percent Ayar overall campaign is people of Color we have deployed robust policy The Douglas Plan for Black America which a lot of folks as is is is the strongest plan to rebuild a black America almost embellishes the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe we've built a constituency outreach team Anna Dedicating Pete's time to communities leaders and outlets of color then so it'll be it'll be not just not just quality time but quantity times in those communities and I think how you kind of distill this is if there's fewer people on the race then there's fewer choices and we feel like we can do well in those communities by getting him in front of those those folks more here in South Bend even a majority of African American students support Pete for president which is which is kind of a cool statistic and so I think it's just spending more time in there getting are organized the program going and giving people the option to learn about him hear him see him meet him etc.

"This is break point this week. A weekly briefing on faith culture worldview and mission with John Stonestreet President of the Colson Center for Christian Worldview GonNa break this week John Stonestreet here along with Warren Smith got a lot of stories to talk about this week like we do every week as we look at the news and Events and the trends happening in our culture from a Christian worldview worn. There's a story that's still developing in many ways but we've been watching it across world here. Which is the election? Benjamin Netanyahu had to call because he was not able to form a government after the last one and it looks like beauty is not going to win this one ultimately and with this is really being. I think portrayed as by most media outlets that that I've heard and I think there's still a lot of details emerging here as we're recording this on Thursday but one of the things we keep hearing is that this is a rejection of right wing politics. This is really a move to the laugh after you think that's right no. I don't think that's right. I mean there's no question that Benjamin Netanyahu was far right very conservative but the guy that beat him a former general beanie aganst was Netanyahu's former military chief of staff and he's real conservative as well so I do not believe that this is some huge ideological shift at some big change. I don't think there's any doubt that it is a change because trump had a very close relationship with Benjamin Netanyahu a mini Christian leaders in this country viewed Benjamin the Netanyahu is something of a hero and so I I do think if he ultimately if they're ultimately not able to put together some sort of coalition government there and Netanyahu has truly out of power that I think that will be a big deal but I don't think it's a sign of a real shift. I think it's honestly Jonassant of the fact that Benjamin Netanyahu has been there for ten years I as a very long time to be in that that role and I think that there was a little bit of sort of fatigue related to his leadership there and number two. I think it is also important say that as much as I have liked Benjamin Netanyahu's policy so we shouldn't sugarcoat the fact that he has an ethics cloud hanging over him that there have been some charges of influence peddling and other charges leveled against him and I don't I think there's any doubt that that played a role in the fatigue that probably Israeli voters are feeling towards Benjamin Netanyahu well. We don't know where this is all going to go. We'll keep our eye on it but but let's go from a politician in Israel to a politician in Indiana. I mean one of the the media Darlie you see what I did there. That was pretty cool. That was good mayor. Pete Buddha Ge- openly openly gay military veteran and outspoken and his faith probably has done more sermonizing on the campaign trail than a whole lot of Republican publican candidates have done obviously coming clearly from his liberal Christian worldview. I mean I'm Jay Graham Mitchell back in nineteen twenty argued that liberal Christianity she hannity and conservative Christianity are not even the same religion and I think that's right what we see from mayor people one of the interesting things here and I'm not begrudging what Mayor Repeat is doing he has every right to live out of his deeply held convictions and apply that to the campaign trail but he's quoting the Bible on a number of issues basically a liberal approach to poverty but more troubling he's also applying it to same sex marriage and most recently to abortion where he basically made it said he said Said Okay Scan. We made that you know life doesn't begin at breath. Now that's super convenient because that clearly then would justify abortion all the way up to birth which as we've seen the last nine months to a year is the new firmly embedded democratic platform across the board that there are no restrictions on abortion upto birth. Maybe not even after after depending on you know how loose and fast you think these words are that are coming from the Democratic Party platform. You know folks in specifically in Virginia Yeah and in New York but it's the sermonizing that I really WanNa talk about and there's two reasons number one is I want to explore with you. Just for a second Warren why sermonizing is even effective in the first place. I mean what he's doing with the Bible should be observable in obviously kind of ridiculous in other words you know to argue that the Bible supports abortion upto birth because of you know this or that or the other or as many people have tried to argue that it supports same sex marriage. There's really no way eighty. Get here from there unless you do some amazing twists and turns so why is it effective and then secondly. There's a just a terrible story that came out of south. Bend just this past week that we want to get to you know as well. What do you think Mayor Pizza sermonizing is is effective well. I think it's effective for two reasons number one is that I think the Bible release release still has cultural capital. I think that people even even people that are nominally Christian or even perhaps non-christian I understand the value of the Bible as a book of authority of some kind or another and I think that p budejovice actually taking advantage of that he is appealing to the Bible and that does have some point if you will in the cultural conversation so I think that's one reason I think the other reasons effective though John is because we have such shallow both the all in this country that we have such a poor understanding of the Bible that Pete Bucek can attribute some idiosyncratic saying that doesn't even come from the Bible to the Bible and people won't not correcting or he can take a verse completely out of context and tell people that the Bible supports one of his positions positions and people believe that as well yeah my breakpoint on Friday actually talked about this and you know one of the things that we said here in fact if you come to breakpoint dot org click on the link on the homepage it says resources mentioned on the radio and podcast will link to this because one of the things we we said was that you know the Bible that Buddha keeps referring to read suspiciously just like the Democratic Party platform but yeah I I mentioned this onto twitter but again. I'm not begrudging Mayor Pete because of this I mean now. I'M NOT GONNA condemn. I'm GONNA argue with them. I'm going to say look. That's a ridiculous interpretation of scripture from any sort of perspective but here's what I said on twitter over a week ago so what what makes Mayor Pete's gross misapplication of scripture picture to cultural issues troubling ineffective is the incredible void left when so many pastors won't apply scripture to cultural issues and I think that is you know we we've talked here. Rodriguez been talking a lot about this idea of moralistic therapeutic deism and and one of the questions we gotta ask a you know. This is kind of the phrase for the new world view that people have even those that claim to be Christian that God wants them to be moral and God wants them to be you know in the sense of being nice and kind and God wants them to feel good about themselves. Well you asked the question. If that's really what people believe in the name of Christianity. Where are they becoming moralistic therapeutic not a lot of times. They're becoming moralistic therapeutic. Ds because every time they hear the Bible taught from the pulpit what they hear is a sermon that takes the Bob one uses it in a moralistic realistic therapeutic way and it's never applied to cultural issues in other words. Buddha judges just speaking into the void so here's what I wrote at the breakpoint do the math too. Many Christians never hear the Bible applied to cultural issues too. Many Christians are left with the impression that Christianity is about being nice and Happy Mayor Pete is nice and Happy Mayor Pete applies is the Bible to cultural issues as one of my friends in Tennessee used to say put all this together and it ain't rocket surgery right. This is what happens when the Bible is is only taught in a subjective personal way in a way that kind of is a sentimental you know sort of approach with the sentimental goal. That's why Mayor Pete I think think is so convincing but there's an interesting twist on the story and I want to.

Anna Palmer senior Washington. Correspondent and senior writer, Jake, Sherman and more importantly, Jake. And Anna are the authors of the very readable new book the hill. The Diane the hill, of course, being Capitol Hill we're going to get to your book in a little bit. But this simply this is the longest interview I've had with with mayor Pete Heather this is your side of the spectrum. How do you do what do you think? I think he's great. You know, he's a very impressive person. Right. He's a roadscholar went to Harvard. The navy veteran. He's a year younger than me. And he's already run a city all very. Mean he's ten years younger than me. And I'm going what a hell of. I don. But I, but I think, you know, right now, we're in the moment where we're finding out who is p I think next we need to find out. What's he going to do for American families? Right because voters are interested right now in the biography, and all of that what they want to know is how will you change the life of my children. How will you help me afford college retirement that kind of thing we're at a real breaking point in this country? And I think people need to see that there's going to be demonstrable change in the their shot at the American dream. And that's why they're asking candidates for platforms that something it's not yet part of historians. Not yet on his website, one of these ideas, the path to the presidency goes through the rust belt in the mid west. It has it will this time he's of the rust belt the best profile. I've read about him city as dean dust realization of the midwest in his bones. And I think that's true. This was another hurdle. Cross for mayor Pete. I've been following it very closely. He worries me from a Republican standpoint. I would like to have twenty Democrats on the stage with five percent each right now. It's going to be Bernie Sanders is the front runner by money, and you've got the vice president and then. Got this rocket ship coming up and the ability to give good interview and to hold the attention. The American people always say, Donald Trump is the very best interview in America because he holds attention to the audience, and he remains the very best interview in America. But I think mayor Pete might give them a run. So the other end of the age spectrum guys is Joe Biden, it is interesting to me, and Dan balls tackle that this morning Anna about this. And it gets us to Biden, right? He's he literally is a twenty century Democrats. And we're having this debate about whether by twenty century enough. I mean, clearly you saw Pete really leaning to the fact that he his age in trying very stark contrast subtly that interview fifty four I'll be the same age as the president. Exactly. And I think what you see on the Biden front including for the last week. Plus is just kind of feels like he needs to oil in the machine there in terms of what the response is how slow it was is he made for the campaign of twenty twenty right now, I think there's some big questions there. I think he hasn't gotten in which is stunning to me. I mean, if he were in the race, Joe Biden out giving stump speeches every day. He would be able to talk about something else. Besides these allegations, or at least he could address it and move on. He's not in the race for reasons that are not clear to me, and it opened gives a vacuum for someone like mayor Pete to get in and to shape the dialogue shape, the debate and say, we need somebody of this generation. So he's still leading the latest polls average seven point he. Being giovanni. And I think the reason is this sense of electability right in a USA today poll democratic primary voters said by twenty points. I rather have someone who will win than someone who wants the country that I want who has the same..
