a crime free in new york city will continue. we will discuss. this is a shocking report about the largest county in texas, but i see more than a 150 citizens killed last year by suspects who are out on bond. we will discuss the a gallery of this decision, and if it's in the best interest of the law abiding citizen, then they show down and it's been, has chuck schumer vow he will change the rules on the senate. but he doing so a just so he can also change voting was more to his party favor. we're going to give you the 360 and something you actually don't want to. 360 view of is congresswoman alexandria acacia, cortez boyfriends feet, and yet she purposely shared an outpost picture as a response to what she feels is heat from sexually frustrated republicans who want to date her. we're going to bring you this very bizarre story and why it actually is revealing about how both parties, no criticism. i'm guy now use this and many more topics we have to cover on today's
8:31 pm
news with you. so let's get started. ah, thank you so much for joining, you know, mild mander middle of the road goes with the flow, all trades of someone you would like to be friends with, but these days, those can be taken as derogatory insults. if it's in reference to a public servant who was elected by the people, as both u. s. political parties and this modern era, try to figure out how to gain or stay empower, just like with everything else. it themes, those who can garner the most attention, actually get to control the narrative. but in this an accurate reflection of their voters, or it is more about what those who seek attention are hoping their party evolves into. our politicians are infamous for saying something on the campaign trail and doing a 18,
8:32 pm
or maybe nothing at all once they're in office. but gone are those days when of long hours of searching their transcripts and newspaper articles to find those promises to hold politicians be to the fire. now all journalists have to do is take a quick word search on the internet, but that is only half those. the media actually want to hold them accountable. so this is a lesson the new mayor of new york is actually learning as he has been called out for his 180 on a candle in crime in the city. now the new district attorney of manhattan says he will not prosecute certain crimes at a time when manhattan continues to see a spike in crime and newly elected mayor eric adams, who originally, like i said, around this tough on crime platform, is supporting him. this is other cities like san francisco, los angeles, also continue to grapple with violence, including home invasions and smash and grab robberies. will archie correspond it? john hardy has more with just a few days on the job. manhattan da alvin bragg is already making waves in
8:33 pm
a recent memo to his staff brags has growing up in harlem. he has, quote, seen every side of the criminal justice system from a young age and has dedicated his career to the extra completely goals of safety and fairness. brag, writes that data, and my personal experience is show that reserving incarceration for matters involving significant harm will make a safer. so he says the fence is like marijuana possession prostitution resisting arrest, and even fare evasion will no longer be prosecuted by his office. he also said he's advising lesser charges for some low level drug offenders. various types of burglary and even robberies, if a quote suspect displays a dangerous instrument, but does not create a genuine risk of physical harm. brag, says the changes will allow his office to spend more time prosecuting violent crimes. like, for example, the shoot out that happened on the block where he lives recently. but critics
8:34 pm
contend brags, policy will not deter crime, but instead potentially add to the cities ongoing problem with it. patrick lynch, president of the police benevolent association of the city of new york writes in a statement. we continue to have serious concerns about the message, these types of policies sent to both police officers and criminals on the street. police officers don't want to be sent out to enforce laws that the district attorneys won't prosecute. and there are already too many people who believe that they can commit crimes, resist arrest, interfere with police officers, and face 0 consequences. there are similar concerns about a lack of law enforcement and other cities, such as los angeles, in san francisco, and los angeles violent home invasion robberies have increased and san francisco police are still dealing with a surgeon, robberies like the numerous smashing. grab a tax at various stores. there. an effort is underway in california by republican lawmakers to overturn proposition 478-2014 ballot measure that reduced the
8:35 pm
penalties for certain crimes like robbery and drug possession. a measure g o p official say, only adds to the ongoing problem of lawlessness plating the golden state. and in texas, dozens of suspects released on multiple felony bonds. have reportedly killed 156 people since 2018, raising serious concerns about bail reform efforts in the lone star state, allowing violent criminals back on to the streets to commit even more heinous crimes for news use. use john, honey. okay, so let's discuss this even further and bring in former assistant us attorney, another reagan ministration, and currently a criminal defense attorney in beverly hills. david cat, david, thanks so much for joining me. it's great to be with the sky. happy new year. happy new year. you know, before we get to the political angle, i want to look at this from actually a legal perspective. where do you stand on this issue as you look at it and should
8:36 pm
certain laws actually be allowed to be broken? and if the da does not prosecute, does that mean that the perpetrator has no punishment? well, there are other ways that perpetrators are punished. and i think there will be some exceptions for things take resisting arrest. if somebody resist arrest, especially if there's injury to the police officers, and it's clear that the police aren't making it up because they don't like the suspect. but it's a real thing. i think that should certainly be prosecuted. and you know, at some point you can, because that's enough marijuana, that's pretty clear that you're going to sell it or you're going to sell it to a young person. and that has to be taken seriously by law enforcing someone who has a huge amount of marijuana. and it can be shown that they're going to sell it to a young person with regard to the not going to prison thing. you know, prison does do a lot of harm. we have to be realistic about that. if there's some way to avoid prison, we sort of want to work that into the system. i think one of the problems is by having these announcements and there been a lot of announcements that they're not going to price this crime, but that you really do send the wrong message. so right now in los angeles,
8:37 pm
they just today the beverly hills, a city council voted unanimously to endorse the recall of our district attorney down here. and of course, our district attorney like the one up in san francisco have gotten a lot of criticism. and now it looks like the new york new district attorney is going to get the same kind of criticism that they're not fighting crime hard enough . and, you know, scotty, let's take these flash mobs. what they should be doing is infiltrating the slash mom. if you send out a message to a 100 people, one of them ought to be an agent or right. police inform it. who tells you, hey, they're going to the nordstrom and then you go to the north and you prevent it, or you catch the people in line, and you prosecute the people who are sending out the flash mob. they go. so there are ways to fight these crimes and just say one last thing you gotta, you know, when i was in the reagan administration, i was part of that not part. i was the head of the southern california fraud passports. we went up to these broads very solidly at the same time. we prosecuted
8:38 pm
every bank robbery in southern california and people say, why did you do both federal resources not to health care, not to invest and why did you take it away from the task force and go after bank robberies? and guess what? when somebody sticks a gun in your face or even threaten to stick a gun in your face, that is a terrifying event. the idea that you can run around with a gun or a night and not create panic in terror. in ordinary people is a myth. and if the d a in new york really believes that he's believing studies and not believing human nature's guy that is very turn david, i told you i can hold off the politics. i got to bring in the politics and for the last couple seconds here that i have you. do you feel like this is a betrayal by the mayor of new york who campaign on making these streets safer again and now you're seeing him actually endorsed. like you said petty things, letting him kind of go underneath the wayside. well, we have to not have things like stop interest which was directed at minorities, but certainly the street need to be safe or, you know, the biggest victims of street crime are but already people. so he's got to look out
8:39 pm
for the minority victims. he won a huge amount of boats out in brooklyn and queens, the products from minority voters, and they expect him to come through and keep them safe, not pass the police not talk socio logical studies. but key people say, which i think is ultimately what every american good american, once their community. and david, i thank you for giving us your insight to be with you. okay, so now after the break representative, brenda lawrence has become the 25th and democrat to say she is not going to seek re election in congress this year. so does this mean even the party members know their parties, platform is no longer connecting with their support? well, we're going to discuss when we were talking with them. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy
8:40 pm
confrontation, let it be an arms. race is often very dramatic, development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult. time. time to sit down and talk back either finance was alive. no, they say my, there's a girl i to wanted to do a central pack support dot com is going to call them right now and say stop the madness. this isn't an open. oh, even susie children have been paid for the fun ins house. i have a voucher for my mom with with
8:41 pm
a nice many goals. michelle in the middle. oh gosh, no man is violet. mom on is violet that dana mom? yes. today with me. okay. allow me to book my name is joe let, you know, you know me on the discussion show, month with your mom i
8:42 pm
the, one of the great benefits to being in power is if you don't like the outcome of an event, you can possibly actually change the rules to get the results you want. that is exactly what a senate majority leader charles chuck schumer is going to try to do the current senate roles regarding the filibuster. now granted, it's rare any legislative victory ever comes for a filibuster. with the most recent notable example was ted cruz who gave a 21 hour speech over obamacare in 2013. but guess what? we still had obamacare, but the irony is the longest speech actually goes to south carolina, senator strom thurmond, who filibuster, for 24 hours and 18 minutes all against the civil rights act of 957 strong with a democrat. now this was a later followed in the 1960, when democrats actually attended to block the passage of the civil rights act of
8:43 pm
$964.00 and filibuster, for record 75 hours together. now luckily for america, the filibuster failed, and the senate was able to pass a major civil rights bill. but there, that's actually a rarity. and now the democrats want to get rid of one of their most use tools. in order past legislation, they believe promote the voting rights, but without the changing of this rule, a sinner schumer knows his voting rights legislation will be blocked. but if it is a change, which is good for everyone, why is the sooner having such trouble garnering support from both even what there is on party? so discuss, we bring in talk radio host and civil rights tourney. robert hello and steve gruber host at this steve riverside. thanks for joining me gentlemen. thanks. got it. okay, so i'm a starkey rubber honest. and before we get to this voting rights bell, i wanna discuss his filibuster and the changes that center shaver wants to bring. robert, why can't the majority leader garner not those to get the rules changed if it's
8:44 pm
actually good for the senate? one thing we become so recalcitrant american politics is to become completely tribal at this point in time. republicans aren't against the voting rights at barbie, reauthorization on the voting rights at the for the people that are on policy reasons is simply put at hearts than we literally in many states and therefore they will not support it. so what we're looking at is a situation where people are so entrenched on their party lines. there's no debate anymore, there's no back and forth. there's no part of non party line votes at this point in history. i list as a spending bill at the infrastructure bill, we're the all the centers get the line up at the trough and get as much money out of it as they want. other than that of the something for the american people than we cannot get bipartisanship. i think miss mcdonald amounts the era bipartisanship is over. and i think the part of the reason for that is them not having speaking filibusters anymore right now. senators is, have 2 amounts of going to filibuster that fitfully kills to bill. i say, get, make them get up there, make ted cruz stand up for 20 hours and why why he was against voting rights make
8:45 pm
mconnell. we understand republicans stand up there and articulate the american people why voting rights are wrong. and i think that that, and that's what we have to go back to. instead of simply having them able to write a letter or a memo and pretending that that is enough to in order to have a filibuster, that's why the system broken well, it's not only just talking about went on hand. i mean, we had ran paul up a few years ago, reading dr. seuss on the floor of the house i there to send if i remember right. that steve, is it as simple as you know, this idea of republicans are again supporting letter writesville or that is robert point out more about just electrically that it hurts them is all about elections. let's be honest about the voter rights and the federal. the zation of elections. scotty, shall we? let's talk about some facts here. 47 countries in europe, not one allows me to vote without a boat or id. now one, mexico doesn't. canada, doesn't mellon ballads not allowed in? not one of the 47 nations of europe not allowed in canada or mexico, or all of these places, anti democratic? do they hate certain members savvy?
8:46 pm
are they racist? are they blocking voting? and the answer of course is no. they know that voter id is a simple, common sense idea and by the way, the american people have a huge amount of support for voter id luggage, mansion state, for example, west virginia were donald trump, one by about 40 points. joe match is doing something remarkable. there, he's representing the people that voted for him and not special interest in washington. voter id is popular, male in ballots are not. and that's a fact. and it's true across europe. it's true across canada. it's true cost mexico . and in fact, the united states is an outlier and absolute outlier on these issues to suggest that somehow we are disenfranchising. anyone devoted america by using similar rules that are used by every western nation in the world, plus a lot of nations that are not as enlightened, shall we say, as the rest of the world. they also require a voter id,
8:47 pm
do not allow balin ballast because they know how dangerous that could be to the outcome of the elections. and what i find to be interesting, what they're in the present time, robert, i'll give you a chance to respond. but something that we've shown is that my vendor id, bad, the co, very vaccination cards. good. i mean, let's keep consistency or, or we're not gonna stand in line to vote, but we'll stand in line for comcast. i had a little confusing here. why the case? why there's kind of almost a double standard, robert. oh, to steve's point, that's an interesting intellectual debate to have. it has nothing to do with the current voting rights legislation, which is pending in congress. they doesn't touch on voter either. doesn't touch on mailing bells as well, registering people to vote at the age of 18, increasing the number of drop box in the cross country where people be able to vote reducing the global. busy all some states help a get hurt or something didn't rotation that we have any literal cycle where people are gerrymandering. districts to the point where you do or your next door neighbor might be in different congressional districts. so the stuff in the bill has nothing to do what steve is actually talking. i don't think that's part of the problem.
8:48 pm
this administration. they have not gotten out there in explained to the american people, what they're trying to do. they never got out explain a little bit better to the american people. so hopefully they haven't gotten out of play voting rights in american people lives last time. all these people on campbell or on your show or on my show or, and steve show talking about these things to be american people. and that's part of the problem with us. why republican put these straw man arguments to have literally nothing to do with the legislation. front of us because those are things that get the click baby or titles on the internet as opposed to the text to the actual bill . but that's the thing i don't even have. the administration is within the bill that congress has put together. i mean, we saw in the last ministration, probably either having the same communications. maybe we need a good telephone guy over there, t and t. please check the lines between the white house and congress. real quick steve to you. 30 seconds is just as simple as that a dropbox is. okay. it's remarkable to me that all of these democrats that i hear talking on the television on a daily basis are all time on voter id because it's in the bill. they're all talking about mail and ballads because it's in the bill. of course it's in the bill,
8:49 pm
robert, just simply wrong about this. and the fact of the matter is you made a great point, scotty. and that is, if i don't sit in line to get a test for coven 19, you know, not to provide 1st picture id, clever that you have to actually prove who you are to get a test for home. and you should do the same thing to vote in america. well, robert robert, he will continue this conversation, and i thank you both for joining me on it. now the story which on the surface looks very juvenile in regards to political war between the 2 parties. but how it plays out will actually determine how powerful one of the youngest members, a congress is to the democratic party. and more importantly, if are outspoken, progressive ideology is actually the future. there is no secret. one of the favorite targets of conservatives is congressmen out congresswoman alexandria, kasia cortez, and be fair. she gives them a lot of material to work with. however, over the weekend, the progressive princess decided to celebrate the new year with her boyfriend in
8:50 pm
south florida. of course papa, she was there, took pictures of her frolicking around all without her mask and republic. install this as an example, democracy from the left and they made sure everyone knew it. now an unprecedented response, a se, accused her critics and kid this being sexually frustrated and are saying this because they want to date her. and they're obsessed with her boyfriend roberts feet . she took it another step, released a video of her boyfriend's feet on our instagram story. now florida governor rhonda sanchez was asked about the controversy surrounding amc and her vacation to a stay here this to say happy though that florida is a place where people know they can come and they can live like normal people, they can make their own decisions. okay, so one might wonder if a r c knew exactly what she was doing when she went to the very read free of covered restriction state. and if she knew the attention she was going to garner and wanted to go, or was she just naive? and when to go the best place to vacation,
8:51 pm
where most people are actually not having to live under the same overreaching rules and taxes, she is pushing on our own constituents. let's find out and bring in d y editor of at large for salon magazine and the professor at the university of baltimore, brock lurie. thank you so much for joining me. now i've actually just came out with political commentary, the author, the book, atheism, destroy, sorry about the brock. i was too busy reading my screen. it looks great. thank you so much for joining me. thank you. thank you for having. okay, so brock on the way. i look i love your phrase. progressive princess, i'm going to remember that. yeah, exactly right. the good hash tag, it's the year i guess i was 2021 to the hash tags brock. i want to start with you is problem with a of see actually vacation in florida. and when just 2 weeks ago here was i think where people are getting her. she said she was not able to show up in person to a job because she did not feel safe due to what she calls the quote, public health emergency of the corona virus pandemic. and a few weeks later, she's in florida. yeah,
8:52 pm
there's no getting around that says it's pure hypocrisy planet simple. there's just just simply no way to get around this. i don't mind that she wants a vacation in some form florida. that's a very normal thing to do in the winter, but please do not give us as pretext that somehow you can on the one hand say that things are dangerous in new york. and on the other hand, say that it takes danger. takes a vacation when you go to florida and only florida and look, she's a, she's called the personality of the day and she show so, so public figure. but she's a nurse that she loves attention and she doesn't mind epoxy claim. but guess what? it's working. so d, is she kind of the future of what the different part of the democratic party is looking for? she is taken pop culture and made it into politics, especially for the younger crowd. and is this the templates before we're democrats want their future leaders to kind of be like our leticia is on the internet too much nowadays. everybody going to internet all the time? i don't know if i were caught or future of progressive,
8:53 pm
but i will call her human being who has the right to change her mind. but let's not forget that we just had a president who literally lived on twitter 24 hours a day to tweet any and everything. so what she has right through because this is america in this country as opposed to be able to, to do these things and, and, and change your mind and go to florida and all these different things. but what i will say is that the way she moves in a way she thinks and how she talks, does it really represent me how i feel about to be pretty progresses? and i think a lot of people here would actually said about most politicians of the party supposed to go and vote for. but real quick, i want to keep this moving because she is you social media to get across the face for just deleted a concert of turns book publisher for summer, crying foul to this no longer going to be allowed. here is of liberty, puts out figures like ronald reagan, amy, call me barrett, thomas shell. it's taken permanently on facebook, other publishers leslie. books of a b, c's of
8:54 pm
a o. c. are allowed to stay on the platform. i want to start with, you go back to you on this. when did you agree with this move? is that fair? you know, at the end of the day, again, you know, i truly believe that people should be able to write whatever they want to write. if it's terrible righty is races if it's whatever, because these are free with them as opposed to having like and tell people we should be able to sort through what's good and what's not good. and we just, we haven't, we haven't been getting that well, and that's the thing. and i went back to on this one, brock because facebook said it only remove the publisher because they failed to comply with the low quality or disruptive contact policy. your response was fascinated because this disruptive policy, this district to conduct sort of policy. you know, we have a country now are people are preaching socialists, which i consider to be very dangerous. that they're preaching communism, which is very dangerous. they're preaching the notion that boys and girls from studio executive the same, which i think is very dangerous. i think it was
8:55 pm
a lot of things humanizing of america. best danger is to demonizing the police and so forth. so somehow they allow for the free speech when it comes to team noticing things that they don't mind passing or but when it comes to anything that's conservative, they right away. want to squash that because that might be dangerous. it is our policy. of course, there's no issue about this, it's never worked. when anyone host at any party has decided to squash free speech is always backfires and it will backfire upon the democrats as well. they really ought to be. ready very careful here because it is a slippery slope in every direction in bay fall upon them one day as well. and i have to go with you on the state going to print it. let those kind of like what we do here at the show that the viewers decide, i believe that they have enough brains, they can think for themselves. let's provide the information, let them make up their own mind, even if it doesn't agree with mind. at least. and be informed, hence why d, before i let you go, and i want to talk about this 25th democrat announcing they are not seeking their office in the mid terms. democrat,
8:56 pm
mayor of north las vegas is actually switching his party, something that we hear republicans op and go and they affiliated with the democrats . that he said that the democrats have become this card carrying socialists, an elitist, and they deserted the working class. americans. d is this going to be seeing more of is this just typical midterms? people frustrated and just wanting to keep their jobs, people are frustrated and they want to keep the jobs. and at the end of the day, both of the parties are doing terrible right now. in my opinion, as a taxpaying citizen, i am very, i'm not happy with either party. normally just the republic is that you know my nerves, but mounted demick. breads are mirroring the other party and it's just, i think it's time for a new party. i think we need something different, and that's something that was the raleigh cry for republicans for a long time. okay. and when are you 15 seconds on this one? brock? do you agree or you just as frustrate? is that your democratic counterpart? well, i think that democrats have a lot of reasons, be frustrated and they see where the wind is blowing,
8:57 pm
and they do not want to be part of what was that when it's going, they need to bail out if they want to keep their job. and i'm sure you actually have some empathy for that because at times i think republicans have felt the same way. and thank you so much for joining me. you know, that's all the time we have a day show, but i promise this is a conversation which will continue to follow me on twitter. s got it and you keep the hash tag team and be a question of the day. do you think we need a 3rd party and for some more download the portal that to be app for your app or android to buy? thanks for watching they happy day helping stay informed with ah
8:58 pm
ah, is your media a reflection of reality? ah, in a world transformed what will make you feel safe, isolation, full community? are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct? what is true? what is great? in the world corrupted, you need to descend. ah. so join us in the depths. will remain in the shallows. ah, and it has to be rash,
8:59 pm
to be able to afford inside and find the luxury that for sure. despite having the most expensive health care system in the world, we have poor life expectancy. we have higher infant mortality. we have more deaths from treatable causes, so americans are suffering every day from it. it's as if these people don't count. i saw how they can choose your customers and dump a sick so also a can satisfy their wall street investors. no parents should have to see what i saw. so if you're denying payment for someone's care, your make life and death decisions and determine to get to live and who, i mean that's, that's getting away with murder. ah,
9:00 pm
here, rapidly escalates in situation in kazakhstan with gunshot, heard in the biggest city as the deadly unrest spot by a fuel costs by continue huge crowds of passengers, the less stranded in the city of alma, the opposite is made up of the showdown following destructive riot we speak with a russian who is the airport when processed the storm, the building, we were in the ample building and realized that there was no security calling to run the airport. although it had been there before, the military and employees left the airport in a hurry, not really trying to evacuate the scale. we were just trying to stick together and run out of the ad both on a military alliance.
