"And mores on the street. You know, I live in the village and Washington Square Park over the last year is just deteriorated into this these all night raves. Where you know people on Illegal motor motorcycles like the dirt bikes that people ride around just tearing around the park at night. Now the police can seize those vehicles like they're illegal. They're not street ready. They can be seized on faith. Um, but I guess The idea is that the The police don't want to, uh, they don't want to get into a position where there is trying to seize a motorcycle from someone who doesn't want it seized And then it can turn into a you know, an ugly confrontation. And we know how these things play out. Look, the use of force is never pretty. So there's nothing easier than to drop a video of the police trying to restrain someone is resisting. And make it look like brutality. Um You know there's a difference between force and brutality, but that that distinction is lost on people. And so this once again, Highways a running theme this week yesterday I spoke a little bit about how medical research has been pervaded by woke ism, and it's literally courted off certain fields of inquiry because people don't want to dare touch on her third rail here we're talking about Public safety and politics, effectively trumping it. How much of that is a consequence of the policy makers versus the fear of cops? Actually out on the beat, well founded fear that there will be political ramifications to them doing their jobs. Well, it's dialectical, so it's both it starts. With, uh with policymakers and politicians, you know, advocating for the criminal class advocating against policing. Stressing this myth that the major problem on the streets is police violence. Against minorities, pushing the idea that some some communities are over, policed. You know, you hear a lot? Uh, you hear people on the left, saying that Communities. With low crime. Have have very you don't see any police around. So why is that If you don't see any police around, it must be because the police are in fact causing the crime. The police or the problem? High crime communities have too many police. Um, but the thing is like good night. If you look at 9 11 data 911 data Um, you know, calls for emergencies come from Neighborhoods that have a lot of crime. Police don't get up in the morning and you know they're not ordered to go and harass black people or to go and just, you know, Harry Some minority community. They go where the crime is. But policymakers have pushed against this idea. And then yeah, they've imposed laws like like, okay, getting rid of qualified immunity. Putting police at Personal risk of being sued. You know the DIA frame law making it making police, you know, liable to prosecution for assault. If they you know, perhaps with their cities like trying to arrest somebody, they squeeze their They touch their back or chest. So, um, you know, and then, as a result of that police just Um, withdraw from being Why be proactive. What's what's the use, you know, just show up, show up at some point and write a report. You know, you can count the bullets on the ground instead of trying to get there quickly to to shoot the perpetrator. So we're up against a break shortly, but I think it's worth noting that just like an individual's reputation, it seems very clear to me in New York is a perfect example of this and other major cities have followed similar similar trajectories. I'm thinking of course of a place like San Francisco, for example, that it can take decades to build a great city, just like it can take decades to build one's reputation. And it can all go kaput and be collapsed very quickly. If you have the wrong ideas, or I guess you have a bad sound by it for 10 seconds, So with that when we come back, I want to talk a little bit about what preceded this decline that that is resulting in the last days of New York, and then what the lessons are for the country. Writ large. This is Ben Weingarten in for Buck Sexton in the Buck Sexton Channel. We'll be back with Seth Baron on his new book, The Last Days of New York. In just a minute. Driving home with Lee Matthews, actress Minnie Driver. What's the biggest thing you've learned during the pandemic? Yeah, I've learned Progress is a game of inches. And at Lori Caverns an inch can.

"Punish The most affluent residents of the city. And I I still I still remember that. Why would he? Why would he do something like that? Throw down to God. Let the people I mean, you know you have a honeymoon period. What? What You want to be hit? You want to be nice to everybody, don't you? What the hell was he thinking of, Um Yeah. De Blasio. He doesn't like Manhattan. He hates Manhattan. He's never attended any of the Gallas or the balls that you know the big charity functions. He He just really has a lot of scorn for And and he always says that He doesn't see the central Business District of Manhattan as the end of as as the center of the universe. No, it's not sure, but it is the center of New York's revenue right exactly as utter he has other scoring court. I mean, very recently he was imploring people who who are upset about things, he said. Help me redistribute wealth helped me build affordable housing in white communities like he made this statement. He. He's a real class and racial warrior. Frankly, uh, and he just likes anybody. You know the Upper East side he saw as Bloomberg's area. But, as you said, though, I mean, he's also a friend of the developers didn't the some parts of lower Manhattan weren't there like elderly housing projects are low income housing projects, and he just let the developers come in. And, uh, you know, scatter all these people like like he was Robert Moses of a new generation. Kind of. Yeah, You know this pretty well. Um Yeah, he there was a place a building on the Lower East side that was had a deed restriction, and he allowed the very complicated way he allowed the deed restrictions to be lifted. And it all benefited. James Coppolino. Who's you know, essentially Described at the center of Develop real estate and politics in New York City for 50 years, close adviser to de Blasio. That's the thing the consultants of these have debrosse without consultants to turn City Hall into a ticket window where they could meet their clients. They could essentially write laws. I mean, it was heavy duty, you know? Corruption. Basically, he managed to skates. I call him the luckiest mayor in the history of New York City. Yeah, I mean, so many of those assemblyman have gone to prison. The state senators, and he's just and he's just gotten away with it. And well, it's funny New York State New York State has plenty of law enforcement. But if you look at all of the people who've gone to jail, it's all been federal. Because at the city and the state levels They're all in on it. They're all the Democrats. They're all they all have the same. The district attorney, the attorney general the conflict of interest sports. Are all appointed or elected by the same game. So the only people who can put anyone in jail or the feds And de Blasio managed to escape. Mm. You think any of the people in Florida coming back? We're coming back to New York City last question. I wouldn't. I don't see why they would. I wouldn't either. I got a lot of them are my neighbors in Florida and I don't think they're coming back. Everybody, so they'll come back. I don't think so. I don't see it happening. Seth Barrett. I look forward to reading your book, The last days of New York a reporter's true tale, and it's just It's a horrible, sad story. But it's a It's a warning to what they what the Democrats would like to do to the entire country. I think Seth Baron the last days of New York Available now. I'm back in New England.

"You're a major developer Well, then Bill de Blasio has been great. He's done everything you wanted him to do. You know, he lets you get out of jail easily. The police after you, Uh, if you're in the union, he gives you fat contracts and so forth and so on. And so that's his real constituency. The average New Yorker Natale, He hasn't He hasn't really done a lot for But you know, he he can't bear full responsibility for the no bail laws. I mean, that was passed in all, but he wasn't it. I mean, I'm sure he was cheering, cheering it on. But I mean, that's Cuomo has two and the legislative leadership have to assume some responsibility for that, don't they? Oh, absolutely. I mean, de Blasio is like he's I call him the fruit, flower and fragrance of the progressive ascendancy, So, but there are many things that he's responsible for two. He decriminalized a lot of quality of life offenses. He put the NYPD under a federal monitor. Which gets to just, you know, scrutinize all of its procedures. He, uh, he did away with the terrorism unit, too, didn't he? That was one of the first things he did of the He got rid of the anti crime unit. He got rid of the what they call the demographic unit, which yes, looked looked for terrorists and there was a terrorist attack under de Blasio, that fellow To, uh, ran on a Halloween who ran over a bunch of people on the West side highway. Um so, yeah, to blast you. You can't blame him entirely. But he certainly has done his share. Decriminalizing public urination. I mean, what is disgusting thing to do? Uh, Getting rid of qualified immunity so police can now be sued there personally liable. If somebody doesn't like the way they were arrested, that's on him closing Rikers Island that's on him. But no, absolutely. You're totally right. The city and the state are completely controlled by hard left. So called Progressive Democrats. Who have codified chaos. And essentially made it impossible for the next mayor. To rein things in who Who is going to be the next mayor? By the way, and can you even can you even predicted with this ranked choice Voting, which is been such a disaster wherever it's been tried, whether it's California or Maine or it's going to be a disaster. I'm sure in Alaska as well. We were lucky to get rid of to stop it here in Massachusetts. Who do you who do you think is the favorite to become the next mayor? Well, at this point, it does seem like Eric Adams is leading in the polls. He's the Brooklyn borough president and former cop people feel good. Former cop, so people feel like maybe he'll do a good job. Given that he's a black man. He won't face the same kinds of racial demagoguery if if he cracks down on crime. He's a very strange fellow. You know, he's been living out of Borough Hall. I think for the last year Uh, he he's not dark. Um, the other candidates. Nothing too promising. There's this gal Maya Wiley, who was De Blasio is lawyer. She's atrocious. She's a creation of George Soros. God, her father founded the National Welfare Rights organization in the sixties. Which was a big Very hard left organization trying to organize Welfare recipients as a political force. Um, So this is that's where she comes out of, and you know, now she's supposedly gaining momentum. Uh, so it's It's not a pretty picture, Howie. Is there any way Any kind of conservative could be elected in New York City and a ribbon in New York state, for that matter. Well, you know, I can't say that it's impossible. But if it's not looking likely, the problem is, you know, as happened up in your state or in Boston with Mayor Curley Many years ago, he drove out all the Protestants who wouldn't vote for him. Right. Uh and Essentially, we've seen the Democrats in New York, driving out anyone who can't stand their policies so Lot of you know, they basically elected the new people. And what we're left with are the people who like it. Uh, so the difference is hard to imagine set the difference in Boston being it's gone now. But as the Yankees retreated, they retained control of the police department, the liquor board and the finances. You know, so they kind of like built in a buffer. There's none of that in New York, though, is there Um the police are still you know. Pretty solid. But, yeah, I would say it's true. The the entire I compare it to. You know what we talked about in Washington over the last four years with the deep state there's a kind of municipal deep state. In in New York City comprised of the in public sector employees. There's numerous non profit organizations that get massive Funding from the city and the state which have tremendous power. Academia. The media. These are all, uh, These are all this is a huge nexus of power that can influence the way things work. Um so and I can't and the bureaucracy so I can't imagine anyone coming in and you know, fighting back against it very effectively, At least not right Now we're talking to Seth Baron. His new book is the last days of New Yorker reporters true tale. He de Blasio was has talked about running for governor. That's not a realistic possibility. Is it next year? No, it's an absurdity. He's not very popular in New York City, and he's loathed outside of the city. So you know, I think he's just playing games and sort of tweaking his former boss, Andrew Cuomo. I mean, they hate each others are always trying to insults. Want to know I remember when he was elected. He just got into office and it was the winter obviously, and the first thing he did was he told the there was a snowstorm, and he told the plows not to go on to the Upper East Side. To somehow punish The most affluent residents of the city. And I I still I still remember that. Why would he? Why would he do something.

"New York, but it's just too painful even if you don't live in New York City. An embarrassment that he used to live in Massachusetts. It's an embarrassment to the United States of America that he's the mayor of the largest city. And we're joined now by Seth Baron. He say he's a great journalist in New York, and you may have seen him on Fox or read his columns in the City Journal, which is a great great website and then or the New York Post. He's got a new book out. It's called the Last Days of New York a reporter's true tale. And it's It's about Bill de Blasio and what he's done to the city of New York. Seth thanks for being with us here on the highway car show. Tremendous pleasure, Hally. What? What the Carlos. Danger AK Anthony Weiner would he had been elected? If he hadn't gotten into that sexting scandal, would we have been we meaning? All Americans have been spared this. Yeah, I think that's actually not a bad, um, supposition. Uh, it could well be that he probably would have gotten a lot of the support that went to build a Blasio. And if he'd just, you know, kept things together a little bit. We might have been spared other last eight years. Yeah, I mean, not that he would have been anything to write home about. But I mean, the Blasio just has basically no interest in the nuts and bolts of effective governance, Does he? Well, The thing about De Blasio is it's very, um people see him as a failure, and that's true. He's been a failure from the perspective of you know.

"Always talking to seth baron about his new book last days of new york and we're talking about what he calls the worst mayor in new york history bill de blasio so we see a lot of the silly things he says and the silly things you know the the minor things he does that are not the major contributors to the the sort of decline of new york but what are the objective measures of his administration Just complete incompetence competence and inability to pick up the trash failure to police the streets but defunding them or or not empowering officers to do their jobs. What are tangible things that are happening. That are making new york. Less nice to live in and visit saw okay. Public safety is one thing. There's been a series of new laws enacted at the state and local levels which yes handcuffed the police and make it very difficult for them to do their jobs The state has bail reform essentially eliminating the possibility of signing bale to people. Most people arranged. Now leave court and go back out on the streets immediately so nobody very few people are held in jail anymore There was a discovery reform. Meaning that All all witness information turned over to the defense almost immediately and this is chilled witness participation in criminal investigations the right to know law Gave may made that police when they're trying to search a suspect have to inform them that they don't have to consent to the search This is unique in america and basically it's allowed criminals to say. Oh well forget it. Then and then they walk away with their gun in their pocket A diaphragm law. Meaning that any police officer. A police officers can be prosecuted if they Supposedly lean on. Someone's chest while arresting them which could have struck their airflow elimination qualified qualified immunity which makes officers personally liable for a lawsuit during arrest if they you know it's it's it during the use of force if the erected you know considered injurious in some way or another there's been a whole series of of these types of Accidents which will make it very difficult for any future mayor to try to increase policing this is all baked. didn't now it's like codify chaos To blasier has made a huge effort to destroy education We do have some of the best public high schools in new york city and de. Oh and the rest of his His crew have eliminated standards. They now have Like there's a very good junior highschool lab school which is now said that they will no longer co teach advanced math. The idea is that nobody you know remember. There was no child left behind well. The the de blasio administration motto. No child gets ahead. Don't want any screen schools. They don't want any like different. You know every class should be the same They see it all as you know. Part of racial justice de blasio has sworn wealth. Redistribution is his primary goal. He said that he wants if he had his druthers he would control every square inch of real estate in the city and determine uses its purposes and who gets to live there. I mean i could go on. And on he's had a whole list of You know attacks. On small businesses stricter regulations raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. I mean that took place at the state level. Cuomo is all behind it You know so. A plenty of things that will make it You know homelessness refusal to deal with the homeless and mentally ill You know populating the streets of the city you know. I had a real estate firm in the late. Nineties and my favorite types of clients were corporate relocation folks who were coming from either san francisco or new york because They were leaving a four hundred thousand to a million dollar tiny little condo and you could buy a nice three to if not a four three and and some dirt and still be relatively close to the action and they were just blown away at what their dollars a could do in this community. I can't imagine going from where. I am in texas in houston Where our money goes so much further and relocating to new york. And that's why. I think most people everybody i know who lives in new york like yourself Manhattan's where they are where they've always been and they can't imagine anything else. I mean jim. African has five kids and they live in like thousand square foot place or twelve hundred square foot place and this is the guy who makes a lot of money in this tiny little space. But i don't think they'd live anywhere else. Everybody's got their choice. That's what makes america great got all types of people living all types of situations And you know. I'm not gonna look down to people. Who have you know a big house on a big run on a big lot. I mean that sounds great. In fact i can greater and greater You kind of talked yourself into that right there. Yeah i did But you know the whole thing with new york city. Is the public space right. We've got parts. The streets and people can tolerate living in cramped quarters if they have this precious public space that they can go and enjoy but the problem with de blasio and with the progressives have done They've taken the attitude that the worst thing to do is to arrest somebody so You know people can jump subway turnstiles and smoke in this in the in the in the subway cars and threatened people. They can sell drugs in the park. They can you know do all kinds of do drugs in the park Play loud music. Drink many people on the streets And this is what makes this is really where things get like sketchy because nobody quality of life is a super. I mean the the left like sneer at people who talk about quality of life and say things like oh go back to iowa i mean and they say this to people who were born here and have lived here for seventy years It's it's a very Scary and untenable way to run a city to allow miscreants and hooligans to base could take the vibe on the streets and that's what we're increasingly see happening if you don't have a big yard then you count on being able to go to the park and relax. I hope it's not the last days of new york. It's a historically a great american city But for now it. Sure looks like it. Seth baron from the american mind.

"This is what it actually says on the Los Angeles Police Department website. The site states that the adult missing Persons unit investigates 3200 cases a month. And 70% of those missing people are found or returned voluntarily. Within two or three days. It goes on to explain, and I quote here since being a missing person is not a crime. Police are given a very limited role while conducting these types of investigations at the bottom of the Web page gets more disturbing is a section titled What if they never returned? And here's the official police advice in such situations? You may want to enlist the services of a private investigator to assist in your search. If you can't afford a P I. The police elaborate quote. Another option would be to contact the Salvation Army. Has a missing persons Locator program. There is not a single sentence on the LAPD website that would lead a loved one of a missing person to have any faith that the police would properly investigated. But the LAPD is basically saying is If someone you love goes missing, don't overreact. They'll probably turn up unless they don't in which case you should get someone besides the police to look into it. All this is my way of saying if the police took missing persons cases as seriously as they do, say, bank robberies, I wouldn't have had to do this podcast and Open the town that is famous as a place of movie.

"Well, then how did how did he women seven against Jeff Bearing in his book, The Last Days of New Yorker reporters true tale. When New Yorkers see Giuliani who nobody can believe a Republican could win? He won. He did a great job as the as the U. S attorney Southern District. He did a great job as the mayor. I talked to Giuliani recently. We're friends, he said that it takes seven years. To undo one year's worth of bad maring or bad leadership in New York, and I think he's probably onto something with that. So how does a guy like De Blasio win? What did people think he was going to do? Um, you know, I think New Yorkers have gotten, uh, complacent after 20 years of Republican leadership and, you know Firm with a firm hand on on public safety. And you know de Blasio. He I guess he pitched, you know, he pitched an appealing message that to some people, and also you know, he has a black wife and that appealed to the black black population in Brooklyn who voted strongly for him. And you know, in New York City. There's very low turnout. These elections get like, you know, 25 2025% turnout, so it doesn't you don't need that many votes to win. It is Seth Baron B A. R R O N Chef Baron NYC over on Twitter get His book is called The Last Days of New Yorker reporters. True Tale. Um, it's an eye catching title. Seth and I don't want to be the last days of New York. Um, could it be subtitled? It could be the last days of New York. If this doesn't happen, or are you literally saying the apples done? No, you know, I mean, look, the title is stark and grim. I'm not going to say that New York is necessarily dead and buried New Yorkers or resilient bunch, and I think we could turn things around. But it's going to take an enormous amount of political will. You know one thing that's you know, a lot of people very excited about the election coming up, and they're hopeful that the next mayor might be able to turn things around. However, the progressives over the last seven years have very cleverly, um, uncertain poison pills into legislation. I mean, they basically codified chaos. They've passed before criminal justice reforms. Bail reform Discovery reform the right to know law, the diaphragm law. There's a whole series of of of new laws that make it very hard for the police and prosecutors in the courts. To actively pursue crime again, Maybe dumb talk show question, but Why? Why does anybody look? It's not criminal justice reform If there is no justice at all for anybody, it's not criminal justice reform. We just say crimes aren't existing, okay? It was a crime, but we're going to prosecute it. We'll let you go on your own recognizance and no bail. That doesn't make any sense. So is there an answer to why? What do they achieve other than anarchy or de funding of police? And what has that got us more death, more crime or ma'am? Well, you know, the clearest statement on this comes from Alexandria, Ocasio. Cortez, who just the other day said that, um, the reason why there's that there's high crime neighborhoods. Is because they're over policed, and that's something Yeah, that the police are essentially, um The police aren't either, like manufacturing crime, just arresting people or their debt. They inspire the over police to commit crimes. But you hear this in the mayoral race people saying, Look Safe neighborhoods with low crime. Don't have police in them. They have lots of resources, you know, like schools and activities. But all of this is nonsense. Because the reason why police go to high crime neighborhoods is not that they chose to go out and arrest a bunch of you know minorities. They get the 911 calls from those neighborhoods. All of all policing is driven by complaints, right, You know, shootings, so it's a completely Absurd, convoluted, mixed up demented view of the world. But this is what we're dealing with. Now AOC and these other acolytes of despair and chaos are driving. The discourse. The last days of New Yorker reporters True Taylor's name of the book. His name is Seth Baron. B R O b E R R O N, um, I often find myself and I get angry with myself because Seth like sometimes Well, I often give credit for having a brain. And that's a problem because her statement if you take it for what for what it seems to be saying her statement is suggesting that police because they're in these neighborhoods are arresting people because they're actually committing the crimes. If police stop going to those neighborhoods the crimes would continue, but people wouldn't get arrested. So hey, it's a win. That's really I mean, that's just stupidity. To be honest with you. Um, but she also she also recently said the reason why so many people are in prison is because we have so many prisons in jails as if if we stopped for some reason. Building the prisons and jails. The crime would then stop. So am I. Giving her too much credit for having a brand is that what's going on? She thinks backwards. I mean last year when there were all these shootings, she said, People were doing it because they need bread. And you know that which is unprovable. It's just not true. It's complete. Not always. It's disprove a ble because crimes were not crimes. They weren't It wasn't people trying to steal bread or even steal money? It was like beard. You know, these companies are obscure beefs rightful met each other or gang related stuff. There's no evidence that it was crimes of necessity. It wasn't like limits. Rob Wright, I want her to show me the police blotter, the the 2000 people that were arrested last month for stealing a loaf of bread. I want to see that. And of course, she can't quantify that. But it's easy to say it and then people at home, watch it and because she's young and cute or something, they go. Hey, there's still inbred man. Leave them alone. And that's the craziness is Seth Baron. His book is called The Last Days of New Yorker reporters. True tale. We just scratched the surface here, so can we do this again? Oh, I would love to.

"A piece that appeared in the American mind in February begins. A curious turn of phrase has slipped into discourse over the last few years. References to quote unquote. Our democracy turn up all the time lately, And even though a computer search shows that the phrase has popped up now and then since at least the 19 twenties Its usage has increased a lot recently. It's something that many people probably haven't noticed, and it's certainly innocuous enough. Our democracy hardly seems fraught with controversy. After all, we all have a stake in the political system, and it sounds a lot like a nice way to describe the republic the common thing we share. On the other hand, it's striking to notice who uses the phrase. Why should you care? That's the reason we're talking to sit to Seth Baron. He's the author of the piece, which we posted to the block entitled. What is our Democracy? When the left claims something is theirs. They mean it. He's a writer and managing editor at the American Mind and an author of the upcoming book Last Days of New York, which will hit in May. Seth. Why should we be concerned with the term our democracy? What does this mean? Well, you know, just looking at it, Neutrally. We shouldn't really be concerned about it all. I mean, it is something that You know, presumably, we all share in common. It's the Republic. It's something that ours. But I don't know if anyone else is notices but over the last couple of years, especially since Trump came into office We hear a lot about attacks on our democracy. And then after the Capitol Hill, the riot and you know, in January, you know the so called insurrection. We heard it being talked about all the time as a direct attack on our democracy. And of course, we heard this throughout the Russia. Investigations that The Russians were, you know, imperiling the elections and had stolen the elections. And there was another attack on our democracy on bits. Just a curious thing that you only hear this from the left. Napi. Pelosi says that you on Omar says it Ah! Basically everyone all the Democrats repeat us. And I was thinking about it and and it seemed like When they're talking about our democracy. They really mean is that it? It's Today or democracy. Anything that I mean, they kind of have a sense of ownership. And like a proprietary relationship. Two Ah! Basically, you know what you might call the regime like what? What's going on in the country right now. And so anything that opposes it is really an attack on them. You know so that something yesterday and I don't remember who wrote it? But it was talking about how What we've witnessed over the last few months and really over the last year with the pendant pandemic is this glamorization and glorification of government as a comforter, a caretaker Aziz. We go into our individual decline of poor health financially and physically, and this idea that the government is powerful. Is that what you think they mean by our democracy is really our government. You know, I think you're onto something there and it's funny because it speaks to something I noticed yesterday. The new Senate, the boy's senator from Georgia, John off Sof. He tweeted out. He's like, well, thanks to the voters of Georgia. The Senate has just passed.

Generosity indicates that Someone is giving something that his to someone else. Out of the goodness of his heart. And presumably, it's something that will affect him. Um The idea that a senator is being generous. Is that the Senate and being generous to the American people? Bye. You know, issuing $2 trillion worth of debt. In our name. It really spoke to the Reverse. Way in which Left. Views the people and the left views the government It's exactly what you were just saying, This isn't John all soft money. He's not being generous. Set of topping generous, generous to spend other people's money. Um, So yeah, it's a very strange relationship it exactly. It's like benefactor. Supplicant. You know anything about that? Angela Maya Angelo. Famously said, when someone tells you who they are, believe them. There is the old Greek notion that the word logos which meant law and language gives us such an insight into into what we mean by how we say it this language, The Washington Post. Used. The words said the Biden plan was showering money on the American people. As if it was cleansing and healthy and happy and virtuous. It's a very disturbing set of terms when in fact, they're actually just returning people's money. To them. I think your point is the language these people are using is attempting to co opt the very concept of government from being that which all of us share To that which their tribe shares and their actions reflect exactly that mentality. I couldn't say I couldn't have said it better and especially this idea that of showering. It's really like like a king. You know, throwing coins from his balcony. That the that's literally the way they see it that they are dispensing the booms. Um and what it what it means is that we need to be grateful. And and obey. There's I mean, in the context. I mean, normally, I guess you could just say, Oh, that's just political rhetoric. Given everything that's happened in the country over the last year. It's actually kind of frightening. I think it is in in it. It's sort of reflects a consistency of thought and vision that should disturb people. Because these air, not conclusions they are arriving at separately. It is as if they are reading from the same talking points. And that should concern people of great deal. This is a wonderfully written piece, Seth. Unfortunately, up against the break, we're going to have you back. Seth Baroness is associate with the Claremont Institute. I got to say we've never had a bad guest from the Claremont Institute. We posted the piece and we'll have him back to talk about his upcoming book Last days of New York. Very soon..

So he apparently they're getting divorced, and it's an amicable divorce with his wife MacKenzie, and now she's dating who did you say, he's dating. All right. So this woman is Lawrence Sanchez, quite the colorful history here. She apparently was married to former NFL player whereas Tony Gonzalez as she has a teenage son from that first marriage. She was dating a Hollywood mogul, Matthew. What is this Patrick white cell? He's a Hollywood talent mogul, she's a former TV anchor for FOX's good day LA, quite an attractive woman forty nine she's also a helicopter pilot. Apparently, she got to know bazo through her husband. NFL tonic dinner at Redmond. Be the couple this. Patrick Lauren had socialized with Jeff Bezos and his wife for a few years. They have houses in Seattle. And then listen to this Lauren was hired to work on one of Jeff Bezos projects, blue origin. A space launch company has a helicopter pilot. She had been shooting aerial shots for bazo. Well, now, my platonic friend does not have a helicopter. She's not a pilot. I'm not hiring her for any projects. So man now, apparently, although they've been separated basis in MacKenzie for about a year, and then Jeff and Lauren apparently started dating apparently this woman is also separated from her husband. So I guess McCain. I guess the Japanese will soon to be ex wife is well aware situation. However, Washington being a community property state meeting divorcing couples without an existing agreement split their assets. Fifty fifty Frank give MRs basis on a family, please. Divi to into one hundred thirty seven Josh. Oh my gosh. Yeah. Man, joking. And we wish them all the best. And I'd like to amicable they're not screaming at each other via the media. You know, Dr Keith apple will join us momentarily after out does the news. I mean, I'm nationally as Keith about the whole relationship thing. It's it's such a it's a minefield. It's a minefield, by the way, you know. What's the adage, Frankie? Fibro always tell you. What would he do? It would any relationship you with your first wife. Bingo, stay with you first way. Because you know, what you think I'll go here all a never works out. It's all it's gonna seem great at first. All this is so exciting. Nope. You're gonna go right back to where you were you. I you know, what was happier before could have been and stay with your first way. Clean. The only good thing is you have beautiful children. And so like like like, I always look at my kids. I always think I always thankful to their mothers for blessing me with such beautiful children. Danielle D Martinez. A booth will join us Seth baron assembly member, Nicole Malet Tackett, do we get we take off for two weeks. Or ten days. Do we get paid? Now. We do we actually we already have the paid vacation shitty. We do. I did. I know idea. Thank you. So that's one of the problems with this legislation is most companies if they can afford to offer their employees paid vacation they do. Right. So the the companies that this is really going to hurt our small business. So can't afford to offer paid vacation to their employees. There's very few ogre like employers of six seven eight people that say, oh where we can afford to give all of you paid vacation. But we're just not doing it. They want businesses in New York City want to attract the best talent that there is around the world, especially small businesses. So if they can offer an incentive for paid vacations, they do all this is going to do is take businesses that can't afford to offer paid vacation paid personal time. They're calling it and make an mandate. That they do. So what's going to happen small businesses and mid sized businesses are not going to be able to afford to? So wait a second. If you let's say you work for a small company of ten fifteen employees, right? Or let's say it's twenty employees, and you never take vacation. So you work fifty two weeks straight, and that person has to pay you. If you take two weeks off the person was still paying you fifty two weeks. Anyway, what's the difference? In another words, if you never took vacation at this company, you'd still be getting paid the guy the employer would have to pay you every week. No matter what the difference is the employer now has to hire someone to fill your shoes for two weeks. The bottom line is this guys don't dictate to me how to run my business from the government can't do anything except for the military, the United States military. God bless him. I'm the government. Can't do anything right there. Bungling? I know if you want to slow up, you're like deal with the United States government. I'm the deal with the local government deal with the state government. It's people who cannot get real jobs in the real world go to work for the government. And God bless them. They have to make living. I understand that. But you give it to talk to the IRS. Jeff have got to talk to the State Department of taxation you ever tried to talk to do we get a do? We have any voice in the tolls in when we go through in and out of New York with any what we have nothing to say, they just use us as a just as the our backs they will put tax after-tax after tax, and it's it's disingenuous and it's wrong for a politician to tell the small businessperson.
