Under the Trump administration, the federal Law Enforcement Agency known as ICE, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, has been given a broad mandate to round up undocumented immigrants. And with very little accountability. We don't see much into the inner workings of ice because journalists just aren't given that much access. But the new documentary series on Netflix, called Immigration Nation is an exception to the rule. Filmmakers were given access to ice and its personnel for more than three years. Which is just unprecedented media put up with it up, then. The New York Times reported that ice was so unhappy with the documentary that they tried to delay the release until after the election. Though Ice has denied this. The New Yorkers Jonathan Blitzer, who covers immigration, sat down with Kristina Closure. Oh, and Shoal Schwartz, the directors of Immigration Nation. There are so many places where I could start, but it seems to me that maybe the place for us to begin is at the beginning is I and every other immigration reporter in the country can attest. Getting ice to allow journalists any measure of access. Even the most limited forms of access is notoriously difficult. Tell me about your initial conversation. With with ice when you first made this pitch to them. I mean, how did you? How did you represent the project? And what was their initial response? It seems like they were open to this obviously and they were it was. It was kind of an extraordinary Weigh in. We I had worked with Local public affairs person for ice in Arizona Way back in 2011 and during that coverage, we kind of became friends and we stayed in touched and During the Obama years, I had actually pitched.

Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine
"Update now on two important diplomatic vacancies. One is the post of U. S ambassador to the Ukraine. The last woman who held that Senate confirmed job was a central figure in President Trump's impeachment. And now the president's pick for the job is facing some lingering question in his own confirmation hearing. NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports President Trump's ouster of the ambassador to Ukraine featured prominently in his impeachment trial. Marie Ivanovich face to smear campaign by Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who had been pressing Ukraine to get dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says that's still happening. Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani. Senator I'm not going to commit to that, because I believe that as an ambassador, I would have the obligation to meet with any U S citizen and hear them out. It was a home. Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U. S ambassador and key Have any indication that there is any kind of election interference going on using Ukraine as a azalea ever to do that? I would, of course, report that directly to this committee. I think you have a right to know that I think I have an obligation to report that to Dayton says his priorities in the country, if confirmed, would be to help Ukraine fight corruption and beef up Ukraine's Navy and Air force.

Belarus recently bought US crude oil to decrease its dependence on Russia and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Minsk earlier this year. But the's warming ties will be tested by an election this Sunday, and Fisher face questions about that the first component to ensuring that we can continue to grow this relationship. Not see steps backward in the conduct of this presidential election. The long time ruler Alexander Lukashenko is facing a united opposition in the run up to this election, and his regime has been cracking down. There will be no international monitors, though Fisher says the U. S embassy will be watching the vote closely. What we are trying to get Johnny is basically to ensure that there is space to ensure their space for more than one voice. In this country. Lukashenko kicked out the less U.

Kim Kardashian focusing on family as marriage with Kanye West crumbles to pieces
"Kim Kardashian and Kanye West trying to save their relationship, And the headline from TMZ today is that it's a massive uphill battle. Do you know what I started watching last night that I had never watched is the people versus O. J. Simpson. And so I bring this up? Because, of course, Robert Kardashian was one of O. J. Simpson's lawyers and one of his best friends. And so we talked about that show for so long, And then I never watched it. And now I just was scrolling through Netflix and thought, What are things that I've wanted to watch the heaven and that was it. Yeah. Small world, starting with number one. And you like, Yeah. I mean, it's like a little campy. It's like yeah, a little bit campy, but it's Ryan Murphy. And so I'm but it's interesting. And then I found myself Googling all these things and Of course, in the first episode, you know, I'm not giving anything away here. But O J, um, threatens to kill himself in Kim Kardashians bedroom, her childhood. Her bedroom did not know the Kardashians house. And so Robert is like, Stop it. You know, this is my This is Kimmy's bedroom. And so I was thinking, you know, because, of course, the Kardashians were so close with them. So fast forward to today, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West trying to navigate this rough patch in their relationships, So they apparently decided to jump on a jet on Sunday and take a private family vacation to try to work things out. This is something they talked about when she went to Wyoming last weekend. They haven't seen each other much at all for months because he was at the ranch and Kim's been taking care of the kids. And Kanye, of course, said during his South Carolina rally that he asked him for a divorce last year. He raised the subject of divorce several times at the event. A few lies definitely been discussed is what time's, he says. I feel like this relationship was over, probably a long time ago. And now it's just a matter of figuring out how they do the dance to separate, although it's not going to be easy because of the kids and everything else, But Elizabeth, you had some insight, I think I don't know, probably like two weeks ago that she that is Kim Kardashian is really trying to sort of play her cards correctly. In this moment. I think that it's that a lot of these stories that are coming out are setting the stage for her to look like the good guy. For her to look like she did absolutely everything that she could to try to save the relationship and then show Be done because it's just too much, But she doesn't want to look like Oh, he was, you know, not healthy, and so she bailed when he was in his time of need, But it's more of like It's she's. She's trying to do everything and he just it's not happening. Like I tried. I did my best. But, you know, I checked all the boxes. Yeah, Yeah. I never even thought about that until you said it. I was just thinking, Wow. She's just really Trying to make this work, but

"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well
"murphy" Discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics
"Ben Max from Gotham Gazette and jared Murphy from city limits. Welcome to maximum Murphy. What did the Democratic presidential candidates have to say to New Yorkers? Welcome to a special edition of Maxim. Murphy this is Ben Max Gotham Gazette and the maximum maximum murphy. We had a special live events show on Wednesday February twenty sixth than we brought together six supporters of the six major Democratic presidential candidates we had a supporter of Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders Amy Klobuchar Michael Bloomberg And Joe Biden join us at the Commons cafe in Brooklyn just below the WB APP studio for a panel discussion about why those supporters support those Democratic presidential candidates the state of the race. How the candidates really are differentiated from themselves and a whole lot more. It was really great discussion and coming up on this episode here that you're listening to you'll hear just about all of it. We did have a little bit of a technical issue. At the event so there are a couple little chunks early on that are missing but then it all got straightened out and you hear a lot of really good thoughts from those. Six supporters will be introduced in just a moment We had a really great smart passionate panel of folks supporting each of those six major Democratic candidates and just want to make clear. These are supporters of the candidates. Some of them are official surrogate. Some not so really just referring to them as supporters so nothing really that was said should be interpreted as official campaign rhetoric much more attributable to the individual person. Speaking just to be clear really enjoyed the discussion. It happened the day after the South Carolina debate and just leading up to the South Carolina. Primary which is then closely followed by a lot of voting happening on Super Tuesday. And New York's primary which comes up in April with a period of early voting and then the actual Presidential Primary Day April twenty eighth. We do not know of course at this point who will be competing at that juncture in the Democratic primary but we had a great discussion for New Yorkers to really start thinking about who they might vote for when Democrats get the head to the polls on April twenty eighth and in the early voting period preceding it and just to be clear Both Jarrett Murphy end myself moderated the panel with these six supporters of the presidential candidates as I said a little bit of the beginning got cut off but the first question that we posed to the six folks join us really was very simple. Why are they supporting the presidential candidate? They are supporting that. They were there speaking in support of and so the first person you're going to hear from is Ana Maria Archie who is the CO Executive Director of the Center for Popular Democracy and. She was speaking in her support of Senator Bernie Sanders and she kicked off our event and let his lifetime and I know that he said every election at that. Everyone knows a sacrament. Beef is the election for lifetime because we are living in a moment of incredible darkness. We have his team and every single day of his administration.

He concluded that he needed to go downstairs and have a chat with the four or of them. His intent was probably pure sharing our adventures of the day with them rationalizing. Our lateness were noble. Objectives lives conversely. I just knew without the least reservation that it was a really bad mistake. He ignored my <hes> warnings for me. I chose the avoidance strategy. I mentioned and headed to bed with the book that had been the proximate cause of the entire entire course of events i plan to face the music a few hours later knowing that joe had become a self destructive lightning rod and might consume most the ringer before then that being the case. I never really saw what joe actually did that night but i can conjure up what has to be a reasonable facsimile in my mind fairly easily. There are two living witnesses joe and my dad but neither either are talking at this point picture my mom sitting there with to a very good friends in front of whom she would become mortified by two of her sons behaviors bad enough right now picture joe coming down the stairs looking like a survivor from the battle of gettysburg leesburg and talking ragtime bloody dirty torn trousers drunk somewhat incoherent flying solo without his partner in crime any attempt on his part to explain away. The events were subsumed by my parents horror. You're just at the sight alone. The backs did not matter the friends new to they listen to jo's rant for a bit but having thank figuratively held my parents hand during what had been a long night in mourning their job was done the boys were home safely and what was to to happen next was between the murphy's not them they tactfully bid goodbyes and we're out of there as quickly as decorum when wouldn't allow what i did not know at that point is what part of the whole thing with most upset my mother with the continuum running from rudeness rudeness due to the late hour to carnage joe's physical state. My guess is that it was not long. After the guests had left the my folk's sorted joe to his room and they shut down have become a form of situation room for the last six seven hours going to bed themselves elves. Yes i had voided the direct confrontation however i probably had not factored in the simmering anger of an irish mother cou perceived her cubs to be a mortal danger especially one of them several hours later when i woke up with the obligatory hangover commensurate answer it with a prior days partaking and went downstairs from my bedroom to the first floor. I expected to have to start some serious explaining. It was not required. The house was abandoned. Mother father in joe were all gone the last being as culpable as myself itself. I figured they must have just mercifully. Let me sleep in if he had walked away relatively unscathed at seems it's the consequences would be minor. His skit of a few hours ago would never have been enough to indemnify him. We both must be safe. I was so very wrong again. Instead of a cool down period i had just given my mother enough time to build up a head of steam something in my entire life i only seen a couple of times and hardly ever towards me personally in the present case she had clearly drawn a straight great line from lucifer to me while somehow failing to indict her youngest son the charges were not clearly levied the punishment certainly was she had removed my stocking from where the others hung and left a note there that in so many words said that i had forfeited my invitation to enjoy christmas in her home a pariah in my own mother's home wow she in my dad and brother joe had all gone for the day to my mom sister's house a few towns over about ten miles away standing there alone. I realized that there were no presence with my name on them under the tree. If she had left the stocking up filled mine to the top with an irish doubles those coal she would not have been able to cut any more excruciating way to my heart yet. I couldn't understand how or why i was being singled singled out for such extraordinary treatment joe had been as bad or worse than me but he seemed to have gotten a pardon. I was soon to find out why the array of transgressions was brought. Indeed however the one that's utterly enraged. Mrs murphy would hardly have been on my radar head. I tried to discern the source. The conundrum was solved for me a few hours later. It was not the early morning our it was not the we had left to worry. It was not the embarrassment in front of her friends. It was not the bloodied countenances. Let's have joe coming down the stairs. No it was the short drive from oak grove station to her house. In fact was even more narrow arrow. It was the fact that i as the eldest had allowed my younger brother to get behind the wheel. When we were both clearly seriously impaired haired the fairness of this one-sided indictment notwithstanding implicit in her logic was it. I as the eldest had some degree of control roll over joe after he tumbled down the stairs at oak grove. Nothing is far from the truth. I could not have dissuaded him from driving no matter how strong my argument in addition possession being the operative consideration he had the car keys from earlier in the evening very hypothetically late we possibly could have argued to a stalemate and maybe taken a cab from the station to her house but that would have assumed a level of sober contemplation relation far beyond the reality of the situation who would also have required some means of communication in the wee hours with a cab company. Hey which inner by itself would have been problematic in the presell bone world any counter arguments by me were futile concluding her position -sition my mother's argumentative kudarat what's so simple. It was indefensible. She told me that as the oldest it was just my responsibility ability period no matter how much culpability rightly rested with my brother as the oldest i would serve the time so order the judge at least the only one mattered in her house so what to do. I doubt it my mother would be able to hold the punishment line in a a public setting. Although i'll kantor she had already shown behavior that day that did not resemble what i knew to be her core personality analogy she had been on an labral tear. Just a few hours earlier facing her would still be a role of the dice. There was another it to remain factor my mom's sister sheila had always been somewhat doting on me. It probably stemmed from when she lived with my family a. and her early twenties and i was a sort of surrogate younger brother to her. I was pretty sure that there would not be a united front there. It would be harder if my mother to make a scene if she was so inclined. I also knew my mother would not be the really vindictive or confrontational hopper. Take the type of person once she had vented her splaine by removing the stocking and writing the note she would inevitably be looking for a way to be more conciliatory without however losing face on the underlying issue that continued to burn for long time somewhat like a smoldering smoldering peat bog wildfire the takes a winter's followed snow before it can be extinguished. I also had a pacifier of sorts. It's i still had the book we had towed it all through boston. The prior day. It was still a great present with all that quasi logic in mind signed. I cleaned up and hopped in a second car. My parents had at the house and made the drive to sheila's house. This car had seen much better days. Ace was more reserved vehicle than daily drive yet. Even with a loose steering linkage a questionable breaks as successfully navigated through through a few small massachusetts towns until i got there about noon. Sheila lived in the small town which had grown up before moving to florida. I knew the route well and episode five an irish devils coal by our w murphy..

"Episode three and irish devils coal by our w murphy the bar area was a relatively large open space joe and i set they're chatting with the bartender her. The woman with a child was kind of huddled off in a corner on the opposite side of the room at about eleven thirty pm. I i felt tug at my elbow. It was the lady with the child in her arms. I was surprised by her approach but even more surprised allies but what she had to say. There were never any introductions between all of us. She may have been listening to our conversation with the bartender. Whatever made her feel. We were safe. It was still odd when she told joe in may that she was going to midnight church service nearby and asked asked if we would go with her and her child there are three of four churches within reasonable walking distance of that corner beacon street the catholic cathedral would probably have been more a cab ride than walk with babe in arms as padre today. It seems to me see that is what she had in mind but it could have been one of the other closer churches. The actual church is moot. We were hardly in the church-going mindset sits. It was now after eleven thirty. I told her that the best plan was for her to go ahead without us us and we would meet her at the church shortly. I hope she did not reserve space in a pew for us because we never showed the services is a cheers at midnight seem to fulfil our spiritual needs just fine right about then again in retrospect a sawyer woman with babe in arms seemingly alone on a dark christmas eve night asking for the companionship of strangers was it a lifeline highflying being thrown by opposing forces to data the fallen angels who had been guiding has so far had we accepted her invitation with the balance of our trip turned out differently to the former most would only say who knows although others more inclined would swear very clearly a sign to the latter question. There's actually very little to ponder by spurning that mess approach. We likely made the next few hours virtually inevitable. We were not aware but clearly chosen a side. Since we were the only customers in the place he was willing to keep serving as gratis just to keep him company until his closing time which was a few hours off still in a brief moment of lucidity and realizing it had now actually become christmas per se hey we opted to decline his generosity and began our egress back. Out of boston was only about twelve thirty a m late late but reasonably explainable to our parents. It was hardly the first time we had partied together and being m._i._a. For a few ours wouldn't cause too much concern even so it was somewhat rude that we didn't call tell them always okay. I knew knew it would not be all roses when we got back but it was really a small san and no one would want to make bigger christmas day besides we have been successful at securing the president of all presence from the publishers rep again the beer logic having now been made more found by scotch logic allowed me to rationalize away how my mother might react to her eldest child and her youngest child gal leaving her to worry for hours. I was pretty sure it was a survivable faux pas on our part however there we're still more advanced to unfold that night that caused that conclusion to be far off the mark. I said earlier earlier. The part of this story is missing in my mind. It starts about here some my call it a blackout drunk. I personally don't think it rises to that diagnosis. However what is absolutely undeniable is that roughly twelve thirty a._m. to one thirty a._m. December twenty five nineteen eighty five is not recorded anywhere in my memory banks <music> as much as i have strained recall that our it is indeed missing apparently ad infinitum what makes the missing missing our the lynch pin of this entire story is that as navigator on our jot it was up to me to find a way from a barstool a cheers to a warm cozy bed fifteen miles out in the suburbs joe had no experience with the subway system and i wrote out would not be exactly backtracking the one which again none of the nearest t. stations were the one we're used earlier in the morning. All i recall is telling joe as we exited cheers that we had to find the park street station on the opposite side of boston common. I knew from experience that most of the lines intersected there..

We also stigmatize their family which is extremely unfair. Most people have families that are able and would want to be able to provide support for them but we demonize families. We stigmatize ties their children. <hes> and we made it very difficult so i actually think that would be. It's a big ask because who they are and what we're trying to do but i think it would make a huge huge difference to think about this next generation of children how they're affected right now. We are talking to the council about out. Child-sensitive arrest bills to be able to have police think about children when they arrest somebody and then think about them when they incarcerate them and then think about them when they come home because i do think that that's going to be the solution or at least interesting part of it well.

Some of them are serving life sentences because they have been convicted of extremely serious crimes crimes you you can't sort of dismiss that is a more difficult population to build a mass movement around because the characters just aren't as sympathetic and yeah people tend to like simple narratives and at this point criminal justice if it ever was is not a simple story yeah i mean i'll say you know it's tipping in that direction but they're certainly quite a bit in between and they're certainly still will you know a number of folks going to jail and prison around lower level offenses because they have again some background conviction. There's there's there's a lot of gradations parole exactly elements <hes> so you know we saw recently some high profile cases of parole board decisions decisions letting people of elder age out of prison but who had been part of very serious or committed very serious crimes <hes> decades ago and that that is still as you said just not something that necessarily plays well so to speak with popular narratives and press treatment and and is easy for people to get out and oppose. You know this is not something really. I've spent a lot of time thinking about or studying and i you know i i don't know what the right balances but you know there are compelling arguments around <hes> when people are of certain ages <hes> reconsidering whether they should be locked up so a topic we will revisit some time later on the show among many others.

"I went to the UK, for example, immediately after my primary the week after for UK labor party conference in Liverpool where I expected to be relatively anonymous and people recognized being there, which was very very peculiar and surprising for me. I think that that alone was an indicator not of of who I am really as a candidate. But of the extraordinary attention that the race. Received. So I think I think if anything it was just a higher level of scrutiny than I could have expected, especially as as a brand new candidate. Does that mean that that you don't feel like you did anything that you regret? Or are there things that now you feel like you do wanna prove to to your constituents, especially it demanded for me was to just think carefully about my own how how my own narrative the significance of my own narrative. Right as a candidate and gave it gave me the opportunity to. I think articulate that better. I think if if I would change anything it would have been to be more prepared for that. And I'm I'm glad that going into going into session. But also into the next the next election. I'll have had that experience and be able to better communicate and more clearly communicate with. With with my constituents so talking about the session and the governor, obviously, Democrats control the Senate, there's a lot of power there. But the governor of still has a lot of thority in terms of keeping him honest. Progressive goals. How do you see you and other advocates slash elected officials doing that what's the mechanism? He's won a landslide victory is in there for another four years. How do you hold him to his promises, and we should note that you cross endorsed with his primary opponents at the Nixon as context area? I mean, even even as governor Cuomo won a huge victory. I think it I think that what that race demanded what the governor's race to banded was for him to actually confront issues that he didn't previously have to take a a very clear stance on and I think with the deadline coming up in June on the rent laws, for example, with the L train shutdown coming up in April. These are things that previously the governor may have have not had to pay attention to. But are naturally coming to ahead. And so I think that is that is one thing is is the naturally is going to face pressure to to make decisions about the MTA about. I think about congestion pricing different funding mechanisms and as. As a legislator. I'm I'm hopeful that particularly with the majority that we have in such a progressive majority that we will have more leverage to to pressure governor Cuomo when when necessary and certainly around the budget as well, we're gonna have to leave it there.

"What do you what do you see sort of some of the dynamics that are going to be in play? There. Are there do do you see a lot of things lining up where the assembly in the Senate majorities will agree and really have to just sort of convinced the governor to get on board are there different priorities in the assembly versus the Senate. How how does that all work say I have yet to have a conversation about the priorities of the speaker? I don't know if they've met in conference the way, we have already to be perfectly honest. But traditionally the assembly has been able to pass a lot of the progressive legislation that's been stalled for a long time in a Republican controlled state Senate. And of course, a lot of the legislation that we campaigned on not just me, but the other IDC challengers and even others who once he didn't come in like Julius ally. Right. We are. We are very upfront about what our priorities are an ultimately were hoping that the assembly will. Stay in support of these things. Because of course, we know that sometimes it's easier to support things that you know, aren't going to go anywhere. But you know, we we we are aware that that is a possibility, and we'll be working with the state assembly to make sure that you know, things stay the priority that they should be year from now journalists like us they're going to look back on two thousand nineteen and say, here's your that began with all this hope these speculations democratic controlled state government a long list of progressive legislation. What got done what didn't what do you think is a realistic expectation for voter? There's so much on the table. There are other things to think about to what would be a reasonable expectation for successes this year. And where do you think we'll still do work a year from now, I think that for sure we like I said earlier we have to pass the reproductive health act. I would really love to. See a lot of voter reform pass before twenty twenty specifically automated registration early voting. No, excuse absentee ballots, even campaign finance reform for certain I mean, running for office is very very difficult, especially for people who have to work for a living. So making sure that that more working class New Yorkers can run for office and compete is. I think very very important. And I really think that there needs to be significant progress made on the MTA front or New Yorkers are going to revolt. I mean, I I was you know, Josh with you guys earlier about how I had to. I now have learned to leave twenty minutes earlier. And of course, the train was on time today. Right. So I was here a little a little a little earlier than you guys.

"Maybe it's just more making sure that everybody has insurance and healthcare rather than a single payer system. So I am I am very much in favor of a single payer system. That is what we campaigned on. And that is what we would love to deliver. I think that once Gustavo is done having all of the conversations he needs to have. We'll hopefully have a good Bill that everyone everyone can accept your district. What do you see is the case for single payer? Sometimes healthcare is talked about it's kind of an abstract issue with principles and ideology. But in terms of your constituents where is the case in your district to move what we have now to a single payer system. So for starters, the single payer healthcare Bill would cover transitions for a lot of my transgender neighbors, regardless of whether they are documented or not, and this is a huge huge issue because unfortunately, not many insurance companies cover the medical needs for these transitions. And if they do cover the only. For them partially. So this is something that's very important to me and making sure that transgender New Yorkers are included. And of course, then there are undocumented immigrants and making sure that we're actually seeing access to healthcare as a public health issue. We don't want the person on the subway next to us to be coughing to be no we want. We want to prioritize preventive care. We don't want there to be any barrier. Espec- especially in economic one for New Yorkers to be able to go to the doctor and get that annual checkup or if they're not feeling well, or ultimately, we know that the most expensive type of healthcare emergency healthcare, right? We want to Levy eight all of the craziness that takes place in emergency rooms. Now, I technically don't have a hospital in my district, which is another problem that we can discuss, but but we are served by hospital and Mount Sinai hospital, and of course, elmhurst hospital is famous for having a full emergency room. All. All the time because it's a trauma center because it ends up serving such a such a large geography. So there's there's a lot of work to do on the health front. I'm someone who's fighting desperately for a health clinic for east elmhurst where I have in aging black population of also a big undocumented population. And where there are virtually no doctors, and if God forbid, there's some sort of emergency, they get stuck on the ambulance in on in congestion in traffic on on the on the Grand Central Parkway, for example, on their way to the hospital, and that's something that's not fair, and we're looking to correct in order for a lot of the primaries to move, and it's gonna be a brand new day in Albany, Democrats control, the state's Senate Democrats, having a very strong majority in the assembly still, and of course, democratic governor. But for anything to really move, you have to have agreement Senate assembly governor, unless of course, the governor's going to veto something the legislatures going over. Ride that.

"To the nitty gritty of the issues, I was running against a an incumbent who was taking tens of thousands of dollars from real estate money while you know, we many of us as renters I'm a preferential renter are going through a lot of injustices for for example, left city in my dissed. Which is swamped in major capital improvement fees, increasing their rent sometimes two hundred dollars a month. So I think just the cost of living the quality of life and the state's ability to act on those things ended up being a crucial factor for for a lot of a lot of our neighbors. What should your constituents and anybody else watching and anybody who's interested in state government, expect from you as a state Senator in terms of how you are going to approach your voice and your work in Albany? Should we expect you to be someone who's you know? Sort of blends into the scene. More in wants to have your wanted to give you the chance to say. But there are people who approached their legislative work and our part of the conference, and they make sure that they're almost never getting out ahead. You know in public of having talked to their colleagues, and then there's people come out and say, you know, like state Senator Liz, Krueger, for example, just comes out and say and says, here's what I think here's what I think my constituents need, you know. And here's what I'm going to talk to my colleagues about I cannot believe I get to be loose Kruger's colleague for the record. The woman is amazing. I've mired her for such a long time. And yes, I'm not I'm not exactly the blend into the background type of person. I think that people should expect for me. All the reasons why I ran for office to come to light to be the driving force behind the agenda that will put forth, we will fight visibly. A lot of what I talk. Talked about on the campaign trail was creating a political environment or a public discourse that is conducive to passing progressive legislation. We know how transactional this the governor's administration can be and if if things need to be made more comfortable for him to come ahead and be supportive of a lot of measure measures. And we'll do that. And I think that's what I bring to the table, especially now that all the incoming Senate labor committee chair and most of my a lot of people know me from my time at city hall, but I actually spent a near decade in the labor movement before that and to me was it's a matter of making sure that we are increasing or making better the ability for working class people to live in New York in many, many ways and really lifting the floor on Wegrzyn on labor protections to make. Sure that people can keep New York home. So I think that that we'll we'll have a very very interesting year. And we're going to do everything we can to be as productive as we can be talking with some of the policies. You mention before two big ones congestion pricing and senior single payer congestion pricing. Great place to start forty people in the conference some of them from districts that don't have anything to do with the MTA some districts that have resisted congestion pricing because of where the system touch them or doesn't touch them in the cloakroom behind the scenes when you're talking to colleagues like that how do you sell them on congestion pricing? So I think that alternate -ly. We will end up coming to some sort of green where nobody's happy which is intimately. How you know? You'll have a successful deal. Right. Of course. Because I mean, we're my district starts right by the East River. We're very supportive of congestion pricing because we understand the dire. Need of a fixing fixing public transportation? System. Other state senators care a lot about the environmental impact that taking these cars off the road would have it's it's really a big green issue to reduce carbon emissions. We want people to drive less. And of course, people will only drive of public transportation works, and that's kind of sort of the which one should come first question. But ultimately, you know, I think that we can never conceive of expanding the MTA right eastern, queens, a huge transportation desert east elmhurst in my in my district, which is the neighborhood where LaGuardia Airport is is actually a transportation desert..

"Don't necessarily need everyone to be an agreement on everything in order for the past the last time Democrats have the majority I wasn't there. But they had a bare majority of thirty two which is the minimum number required. Anytime one Senator didn't wanna do something everything got gridlock. So we have now thirty nine or forty depending on what happens with sympathizer in Brooklyn. But that's a huge cushion of seven or eight votes that we can not necessarily need enemy on every say to some centers. Do do what you need to do for your district. I mean that type of thing or it's just a question of as we discussed it as a group if we have thirty five members and four problem those four can vote. No. And it could still pass. We don't need every vote for passage of everything and that's going to give a lot of flexibility to leadership to set the agenda into more detail. What about the relationship? With the governor it during the period when the IDC was in power there were suspicion that governor Cuomo tolerated that maybe even engineered it you in the governor's people had some friction during the campaign over where money was being spent what's the relationship like his progressive self image during the campaign. How solid does that look to you. What do you think that's going to be like this the dynamics between the executive and legislature are less important to me from a personal perspective than what we can get done together. And so there are issues of agreement, and we're gonna move forward together and aggressively and change some of these laws that have been waiting to be to be improved for so long. But that's all that matters. I lived with Jeff Klein of the Senate for how many years at the end of his tenure. There was this deal where everyone came together. And everybody was wondering how I was going to sit across the table from him. And I said I don't care if I like someone somebody if we're on the same page and trying to get things done, then we're gonna get things. On. And whether someone likes doesn't like me is not as relevant as helping the twenty million people who live in the state is going to be the Senate majorities job, maybe in conjunction with the assembly majority to hold the governor to his campaign promises to to keep pulling him left. You know, it seems like he gravitates towards the center is that part of how you you see the new Senate majority job. I mean, there's certainly a bunch of folks who who defeated IDC members who ran on pretty far left platforms. I don't think our job her say's to create some kind of broad desire to pull the governor anywhere. Our job is to get done what we campaigned on. And what people expect us to do on a host of issues. Now, they tend to be progressive nature, and I'm very very progressive in a lot of ways. So if the governor agrees with us who self-proclaimed progressive and self then this'll be very easy, and they won't be much friction if areas of disagreement, we certainly intend to assert ourselves. We're there for reason we're there to be anybody's rubber stamp. And so I think. You'd expect us to stand up and make our case, and they'll be negotiation both with the assembly and the governor, and we'll come to resolution what we'll say is the normal dynamic of Albany has been broken where these semblance Senate are in control of different parties and the playing one off against the other is part of a strategy to keep things from happening..

Earlier this year to become a first time elected official and another who is a veteran lawmaker. We'll be the deputy leader of the Senate majority. So welcome soon to be Senate deputy majority leader Michael gymnast, thanks for joining us. Thank you been for. Sure. So tell us what that means. You're going to be the deputy leader of a new democratic majority in the state Senate head you captured for people how significant that is mentioned. It'd be transformational. I don't know. How controversial also added that word. But, but it certainly we'll be transformational is the largest democratic majority one hundred six years in New York nineteen twelve was the last time anything like this happened. And we have been struggling with very strange dynamic in the Senate for the last decade, at least we're winning elections and having majority of members elected, but because of internal problems of the Senate something team up with Republicans. We never actually had control of the body. And we finally achieved that and now there's a long list of. Priorities that have been on the shelf that the people of New York, not only want but had been voting for and been denied you mentioned some of them. There's a lot more than that. And so it's gonna be very full agenda. Expect it's going to be the most productive session than any of us. Remember, so looking back at the election that created this large majority that you have a few weeks worth of perspective. What do you tribute to? How did you guys pull this off? What what happened to make this possibility and strategy? Also chair the camping. But honestly, look if you look around the country, you could tell there was a very good election for Democrats everywhere, the turn out was approaching presidential levels, which is very unusual in a midterm and typically when the turn out his higher Democrats perform better because it's our constituencies for whatever reason that seem more interested in presidential elections than other elections. Typically, I will say the while. There was a Blue Wave everywhere, we really maximized our results here in New York, we outperformed the top of the ticket and the number of victories and the Hudson valley where James scoops, Jen Metzker, and your senators now, they outperformed the votes that governor Cuomo got in those districts and on Long Island where we have Monica Martinez. John Brooks, Monica member John Brooks, reelected, they outperformed the congressional candidate for party there. So we do take pride in having really good candidates having run smart campaigns because of the eight seats we picked up which is historic of itself. Twice as many as the maximum that it ever flipped in the past. They were narrow victories. And so I think we were intelligent about where we dedicate our resources where we knew that the energy of the grassroots would carry us, and it was great success on those narrow victories as we transition. This conversation's talking about the governing. How did those districts and those narrow wins dictate how you approach governing? How worried do you need to be? You know, there's a lot of talk ready will Democrats can't go too far because then they'll lose those seats. They just picked up. How does that come into your first initial matter? I think what you can expect to see in the first two months. The pre-budget portion of session is a lot of things that the people have been waiting for an very popular everywhere. You mentioned your list, I think protecting women's reproductive rights is popular across the board, establishing more sensible gun laws popular across the board improving voting laws. So we make it easier to vote establish early voting automated, registration those types of things are popular with everybody. So there's an enormous amount of work that we can do. And I left a lot off those. Right away that I think will work for everybody as you get into some of the things that have a different support regionally around the state, and that's a conversation. We're going to have to have with our colleagues, but I will say this the margin is so large that we.

"Here's our conversation with Senator Stuart cousins, and we are now joined on the line by state Senate Democratic leader. Andrea Stewart cousins, thanks so much for joining us again on max Murphy. How are you? I'm doing really well. Thanks. Thanks for having me. Thanks for joining us. So you are on the precipice here of very powerful role in the state you've been the minority leader, but you're on the verge now, thanks to the election results that we saw of becoming the majority leader when the new session kicks off in January. How does that feel? Why do you think Democrats did so well in this election? Well, it feels very very exciting. Also, very humbling. It is an honor to be able to lead ordinary group of people in the Senate, and certainly in terms of the democrat majority. Really, really? I we're going to start with fifteen new senators, and there will be forty. Democratic senators in the chamber. So the reality is is that we did do really well. And I believe it all started after the twenty sixteen election where people recognize the impact that they legislatures could have as it relates to not only fate policy but federal policy. So there was a resurgence in interest in government. There was a mobilization grassroots mobilization that frankly, I hadn't seen since I've been an elected office and between the door knocking and the ham thing and people just realizing the nexus between government and their day to day live generated such an amazing enthusiasm. Unexpected winds of the you know during the congressional race with. Cortez for examples and this the whole nother regeneration of interest. And and so Democrats are is he said definitely on the precipice of of not only leading. But being able to move them of the issues that have not been able to move onto Republican leadership for so many years. So people are excited we did well because people were involved in their democracy. People got out to vote in record numbers. Despite the fact that we still don't have early voting despite that we see the wanna be making it harder than it has to be here in New York, those things will change, and despite all of it New Yorkers turned out, and they sent they Tholot irrefutable democratic majority to leave the center, do you think the result? Flex the strength of anti-trump sentiment in the state is this the Democrats in the strange way have Donald Trump to thank for the victory, or do you think a specific legislative program or set of policy promises is what power the Democrats to the forty seat majority? You've you've discussed. Listen, I've gotta say that it just in terms of the particular circumstances, even in this state. It wasn't until the twenty sixteen elections that people actually really started paying attention to what their fate legislatures were doing. And it was then that people recognize that we were, you know, eventually a quote unquote food state, and yet we had an achiever that in the Senate. So I, you know, in some weird way we do have to realize the election of President Trump really caused a lot of people pay more attention to government, and I always say, whether you're Republican or democrat. I don't think anybody believes that Donald Trump would actually win and the fact that he did made a lot of people figure out who the the or the policy initiative as well that we've been promoting whether it's, you know, you know, just fighting for or and be. Being be essential vote for for stronger gun laws and for marriage equality, and and for paid family leave, and you know, just, you know, raise the minimum wage. I mean, we we have been really important in making sure that those good initiatives got, you know, to the table, and some cases like raising the minimum got back to the table. Because the first one wasn't really good enough. So I think that there is certainly different policy initiative. But I think we're really critical was with this this tax Bill that came out of the federal government, and so many people who are not going to be able to deduct the on ten thousand dollars in this, you know, the state and local taxes and having it actually. You know, targeting states, like New York, the blue states who who obviously did not, you know, overwhelmingly vote for this president targeting our taxpayers and men having a situation where a Republican counterpart really wouldn't stand up..

"So that's gonna be clearly a major topic for discussion early in the year in Albany, election reform, voting reform, and even tying into that campaign. Finance reform government ethics Democrats have a lot to of talking. They've done. To now. Walk the walk and we'll see if they do it. I think we were speaking with list of criminal Justice reform office. He some quick things on the ballot or at our Bill reform speedy trial discovery and a lot of those tie in to to the city's process around closing Rikers. While the mayor has often said that in order to depopulate the island and permit them to create these smaller Abraham facilities. They need the ability to get people out of lockup earlier, you know, bail speedy trial being part of that. And frankly that leads to a separate, but related city process, which is the process approving these sites for these new jails, which has become very controversial. And will be a significant fight for the mayor and his allies. And we'll create some interesting bedfellows. I think among folks who feel different things about the whole idea of closing Rikers, the role of incarceration criminal Justice system, the politics. It could be very interesting, and we touch a little bit on in the conversation with the list. About health care of the possibility of single payer getting any discussion in Albany, the assemblies passed it a number of times, lots of Senate Democrats signed onto the Bill at the end of last session. But again, maybe that was a little bit of posturing. So that will certainly be a topic. We're looking at because you also have the public hospital system in the city still trying to figure its way out of some crisis, so health and healthcare here, obviously, Medicaid spending. The question of they'll be changes into the Affordable Care Act coming on of out of Washington, and then transit, obviously, looms large. We know the MTA as money we know that the various rebuilding plans coming to fruition the L Pakalitha hits. And also, you know untranslated the mayor's ferry system the redesign of the bus system is part of that mix mix as well. And as I said they have to figure out how they're going to fund this modernisation plan that handy Byford from the MTA's put. Forward that everybody seems to agree is is fine and good. They just need to find the tens of billions of dollars for it. Whereas congestion pricing come into that Cuomo has more or less guaranteed that he's going to move congestion pricing forwards or we're going to really have to see if he's able to do that. There's other issue. I mean, every issue we we could really go down the list, but those are some of the highlights I would also add education. There's a charter school cap that that the city's bumping up against you know, that's going to be a democratic infighting issue. Governor Cuomo is a big proponent of charter schools. We'll see where that goes any number. I climate change. You guys did a great article. But how that was absent from this race entirely. This is a crisis facing our entire world is going to change everything we're talking about. Now, there's been very little discussion of it that will be on the agenda two thousand nineteen when we wanted to be or not, but please tune into Maxon Murphy check on our website city limits Oregon Gotham gazette for more on this series be part of it. Please tune in always you've been listening to max. And Murphy on WBAI ninety nine point five FM. The voting is over us. Look ahead to what the governing looks like.

"Most the feedback I get has nothing to do with my technical knowledge or how will I know gear Photoshop for how to set up a podcast most have to do with my work ethic and how I do my own thing. And what I create is not like anyone else's. It's my authenticity, inconsistency that people appreciate the most. I'm not trying to be different. I just am. And so are you the content I create is one hundred percent me. It is a whole lot easier and less work being yourself than mimicking. The work of others are putting your energy following someone else's path. When I say I'm a one man band, this is what I mean. I'm in this content creation game for the long. Hall in the only way that I'm gonna make it is by showing up as me every single day. Same with you. The final ingredient for the secret to success in content creation is no secret, but that is story. It's the most important element really at ties everything together stories are all people remember in think about in share with others. When my friend died, I remembered the stories, the experiences we shared that made me smile or laugh or took me to a place stories, connect people. They trigger emotions and make your content relatable. Why do people love Instagram stories, and Snapchat and probably Instagram, TV and the horizon because creators let their guard down and tell the real story by just being themselves your business and your brand and content is telling your story in everything you do in it is up to you what the narrative is. You have complete control over how your story is toll. Old, but the way to make it stick in the memorable is consistency. People do not remember the time. You upload a bad video or had a bad day. They remember that you seem like a good person who shows up day after day, given it your all every comment and post that you make unsocial every podcast episode. Every article you publish in video, you make it's telling your story of who you are as a creator. My daily quick tips. They're not stories in themselves, but the story behind my brand, my business is that I love sharing my knowledge making videos that I think will help people. The story I am telling is the journey that I am on to make it as a content creator in not the actual content that I make every day. My story is that I'm putting in the hard work to create the life I want and be the best person I can be in both life and business. My story is that I am relentless and will not stop trying until I figure it all out. I tell it over and over by showing up. Up every day regardless of how hard it is. And at the end of the day, it is what people see in my content. If the content bring value to the lives of others than the story will be shared in that is the recipe for success. My favorite definition of branding that I've heard is branding is how people talk about you when you are not in the room. This is your story in his upper you how you want it to be told. So in conclusion, I created this episode to remind myself in you that you get one shot. You get one at bat in how you treat others and how you make other people feel is how people are gonna. Remember you when you're gone the recipe for success as a content creator, it's easy, be nice to others mean what you say spread a positive message simply by being a person of good character and working hard, be yourself. It is much easier to do. Go all in on what you are good at and what you enjoy. Make content. You really. Care about and that you generally think others will find value from make content that makes a connection with others and build relationships. The content you create tells the story of you and your brand make good and keep it real live each day. Like it matters create and do work like it matters b the person or brand that makes other people's lives better just by knowing you my life is better knowing my friend that just passed away. And I hope other said the same thing about me in my brand when I am not around that, I make their lives better. And I hope they say the same about you..
