6:30 pm
said it when he goes back to the senate he will be an independent again. bob: he showed the true potential of an online fundraising strategy. he showed the progressive message. he was vastly different from the other second-place tenets. there is the head and the heart. the question for me is how the question for me is how different is he? is he a vessel for these aspirations? is he truly the candidate with the message? people completely underestimate bernie sanders as a political strategist. i know he looks like a tenured he knows where his audience is in a way that very few other politicians do.
6:31 pm
>> i wonder whether or not he sees his voters going in and changing the democratic party or whether or not there is a third-party option that he sees going forward that may give them kinds of concerns? clinton does become the next president, what presidents worry about is four years from then. i think hillary clinton people, he has to worry about primary challenge whether that is bernie sanders, elizabeth warren or some but down the road. i think bernie sanders make those decisions. clearly has a huge following and the fundraising has been astounding. >> thanks to both of you for your questions these week. -- questions this week.
6:32 pm
journaln's walking 10 -- c-span's washington journal. why hand other republicans are supporting the libertarian party and getting a third-party candidate elect in 2016. and recent efforts by some states to impose tighter voter id requirements. i with the air force announcing joint strike fighters are ready for combat. a global business editor for defense one looks at the history of fighter jets, it's cost and trouble in production. we sure watch c-span washington journal beginning monday morning, join the discussion. >> on saturday jill stein was

6:34 pm
[inaudible] -- i am so honored to be with you this afternoon. it has been a tremendous experience the last couple of days. before i get into my remarks, please allow me to thank my dear sister. i want you to understand something. she talks about human rights and the role that i played. when they write the history of the evolution of the human rights movement in this country, front and center will be my dear sister, believe me. [applause] i have to admit, i told dr. stein that running with me is not going to be as adventurous as running with sherry.
6:35 pm
you all know when you run with sherry, you better be ready to go to jail. [applause] i tried to avoid jail, myself. running with sherry, it can happen. what year was that? the national convention, one of those illegal gatherings and they told sherry that there would be no marches in new york. of course, they organized a rally anyway and the police surrounded the square. i had a chance to speak, and i saw what was happening. i said i would speak and then i'm getting out. the people are coming out, more and more in the police barricades were pushed further and further back.
6:36 pm
the people are ready to step off and sherry said we are stepping off and i said when the masses are moving like this, you have to be with the masses and i joined that line with them and we locked -- we walked and it was the only successful non-permitted march in new york city. that is my sister. [applause] let me think the organized -- thank the organizers of these last couple of days. as an event planner, i know how difficult it is to organize
6:37 pm
these events. let me thank the conference of delegates. you have done a tremendous job. you took your responsibilities seriously. let me thank the green party in general, but your consistency -- for your consistency. always being a vehicle for progressive politics. [applause] last, but not least, let me thank my leader, jill stein. [applause] brothers and sisters, friends. we are at a critical moment, as jill says, a transformational moment. we have tremendous opportunities before us. the american people are longing for a change.
6:38 pm
they are ready to do something different, and we have to be the vehicle for that difference. there are difficult conditions that the people face. they tell us that there has been a recovery and things are alright from the crisis. there are millions of people, people who we work with who have not experienced any kind of recovery. there are millions of people who still don't have a place to lay their head at night. there is a reason why the fastest-growing population of homeless people are black women with children. there are millions of people who
6:39 pm
would like to have a job, so they can live a decent life, but they do not have it. if they have a job, basically they are making starvation the wages, working two or three different jobs just to make ends meet. they tell us things are better. we have a situation where as a consequence of austerity, across this country, they are closing down schools. people live in communities where they can't go to the store because there is no store. you have 48 million people who are living in situations where they are going to bed every night, hungry. we have a situation where even with so-called obamacare, we have millions without health care.
6:40 pm
these are difficult conditions. people are wondering why. why do we have to accept this situation? when the two parties attempt to herd people based on fear, we find that there are millions of people who are prepared to do something different. did do -- prepared to go another way. we are going to provide that opportunity for a new day and
6:41 pm
another way. [applause] there are people all over this country engaged in struggle, who believe that we should not have schools closing, who believe that we all have a right to be healthy, who believe that education should be something that is going to enhance our dignity and our spirits, who believe that people should not be going to bed hungry or walking the streets without a place to live, who believe that women have a right to their bodies and bodily integrity, who believe that trans people have a right to live in to see -- in dignity and equal rights. there are people engaged in struggles all around the world holding social movements and part of that motion, they are looking at how do we relate to the electoral process? how do we look at electoral processes as part of a larger, strategic plan? many people say that in terms of building power, we can look critically at how we advance our efforts through the electoral process.
6:42 pm
when we look for that alternative, we have to be there. we have to have the possibility for them to be able to express themselves politically, on the green ballots across this country. that is why it is so important that we get as many oaks as we can, that we run the selection with the intent that we have, which is basically to win. [applause] my brothers and sisters, i have lived my entire life committed to the notion of independent politics, building alternative power, i have understood that we have the real possibilities in advancing that struggle for political independence, using the electoral process.
6:43 pm
that is where dr. stein and green party come in for me, personally. you all get it. dr. stein understands that you can't transform a system without struggle. you have to organize the people. the electoral process is the process of how we build power. for me, that is what is attractive to this process and the basis for me accepting when dr. stein called to say are you ready to join? i said dr. stein, i thought about it and i know where you are coming from, and you can count me in. [applause]
6:44 pm
it is that commitment to the possibility of building power. that commitment to the people, that understanding that we have to build a multinational movement in this country, based on the need and the aspirations of working people, that i join this effort. it is that commitment that i stand here proudly and say to all of you, it is my honor to accept the nomination for the vice presidency of the united states from the green party. [applause]
6:45 pm
our ticket is one that understands the struggle. it is a ticket committed to popular power. it is a campaign that says no lies, we don't live to the people. it is a campaign that says no compromise, no retreat, and no fear. [applause and cheering] my brothers and sisters, we are not in a position to determine the historical conditions we are born in. but, we can determine how we can respond to those conditions. for us, we have determined that we are going to fight. i stand here before you to tell
6:46 pm
you that the campaign is committed to fighting. we are committed to fight not just for you, but with you. we understand that it is a collective process. we understand that all we have to keep us back is ourselves. i pledge to you my brothers and sisters, that we are going to do all of week -- all we can to

6:57 pm
transformational change. we have not only a historic opportunity, we have a historic responsibility to be the agents of that transformational change. as martin luther king said, the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice. i know it is bending through us, right now. we are the actors in something that is much her than us -- much anger than not -- much bigger

6:59 pm
of poisonous fossil fuels and nuclear infrastructure. that arc of justice is moving through us in philadelphia, like i have never seen, in the city of brotherly love, it was overrun by love in the streets, even inside the dnc as the sanders campaign broke away from that corrupt and backstabbing dnc.

crisis that demands transformational solutions. forward based on democracy and human rights. that will not come from corporate political parties funded by predatory banks, war profiteers and fossil fuel giants. it will come from office, we the people. mobilized a broad social movements with an independent political voice because as frederick douglass said, power concedes nothing without a demand. it never has and never will. we will be that demand.

7:12 pm
for a just and welcoming path to citizenship. the other thing we will do to fix the immigration crisis is to stop causing it in the first place. we say to donald trump, we don't need no wall. we have to stop invading other countries. [applause] we can and discourage of racist brutality not only in our police departments within our courts and in the economy at large. we can start by ensuring that every community has a police review board so communities will
7:13 pm
control their police, not police controlling the community. we will ensure that every community has access to an investigator so that all cases are just in the custody of police are investigated. not just a few did get a special thumbs-up from the department of justice. we call for a truce and reconciliation commission so we can get to the bottom of this crisis of racism and to provide reparations to acknowledge the enormous debt owed to the african-american community for the unimaginable price that they paid in building this country forsustaining our economy generations as they were denied dignity and freedom.

7:15 pm
been a catastrophic failure. we must abandon that policy. ("no more war") stein: the american people deserve to know the truth about these wars. us $69/11 they have cost trillion when you include the health-care expenses of our wounded veterans. $6 trillion comes down to an average of $75,000 per american household. for wars that have not made us safer, that have only increased the terrorist threat. it is created failed states and has created mass refugee
7:16 pm
migrations that are tearing apart the middle east and europe. we say no to those wars. we call for a new policy. they want to do more of this catastrophically failed policy. we need to be on the debate stage so we can tell the truth about this. [applause] we have a new kind of offensive for the middle east. it's called a piece of offensive. starts with a weapons embargo since we are providing the
7:17 pm
majority of weapons to all combatants and to all sides we can shut down the flow of wepons to the middle east can also shut down the flow of funding which is coming largely from our allies. with one hand, starting back in afghanistan where we and the saudi's created this great idea of the local terrorist enterprise that was created in order to help the mujahedin fight against the soviet union. this has come back to bite us in a very big way. it is time to shut the whole enterprise down. hand, we and our allies are fighting it but with the
7:18 pm

7:19 pm
jill stein: hold onto your hats. that isn a whirlwind way bigger than any of us. we have a job to do. we have a role to play that will not be played by anybody else . we are the ones we've been waiting for. the politics of fear that we have been told to bow down to has only delivered everything we were afraid of. we were toldsons to vote for the lesser evil because we didn't want the off shoring of our jobs, the meltdown of the climate, the
7:20 pm
massive bailout of wall street, the expanding prison state, the attack on our civil liberties and on immigrant rights, all the things we didn't want is exactly what we got by allowing having a lesser evil speak for us. [applause] when they try to tell you you are powerless, remember what alice walker said. the biggest way people give up knowing they had to start with. we're going to use it in this election. we are saying no to the lesser evil and yes to the greater good. we are not only deciding what
7:21 pm
kind of a world we will have in this election we are deciding whether we will have a world or not going forward into the future. the day of reckoning is coming closer and closer. on climate change we are told there will be a civilization in terms ofopment rising ocean levels by 2050. we cannot wait. we have to act now if we want to stop that rise of sea levels happening in 2050. we need to declare a state of emergency right now. we need to undertake a wartime scale mobilization to create those 20 million jobs and create that hundred percent clean energy now.
7:22 pm
we have a crisis in nuclear weapons. thanks to the democrats. removed us from the anti-ballistic missile treaty. obama created a trillion dollar budget for us to spend on a new generation of nuclear weapons. on the count of climate or or this insane nuclear arms race that we are once again plunging headlong count of these endless and expanding wars that are blowing back at us all around the world, we cannot if afforded to sit this one out. is a losingvil strategy. people stopped coming out to vote. politicians keep throwing them under the bus. the republicans will win anyhow.
7:23 pm
trump, donaldald trump does not stand alone. he is about the rise of right-wing extremism but only in this country but in europe. bernie sanders himself said the only solution to the likes of donald trump is a truly radical progressive agenda that restores our needs and ends the economic misery that promotes the kind of demagogues we are seeing in donald trump. we are the ones we've been waiting for. hillary clinton is the problem. she is not the solution. solution. we are the ones we've been waiting for. this is our moment. power towe do at the create an america and the world that works for all of us.

>> the c-span radio at makes it easy to follow the election
7:26 pm
wherever you are. if we downloaded from the google app store. for our podcast times popular public affairs programming. stay up to date with our radio app. usa, andtability and advocacy group for the disabled, takes a look at the election. we will hear about a new campaign aimed at mobilizing latino voters. donald trump will be speaking at the detroit economic club.
7:27 pm
that is live at noon tomorrow. >> betsy mccoy the former lieutenant governor of new york and a donald trump supporter and . new york post columnist good morning. betsy: good morning. i have no donald trump for about 15 years since i was in the senate governor of new york. my major reason for supporting him are his economic policies because this nation is facing in all likelihood a serious recession in the near future. investment has been down steadily. down for fiveeen quarters. nowth in this country is
7:28 pm
down to a very low 1.2%. at countries like ireland, where it is 8%. americans are feeling the impact of this sluggish growth. pushing us closer and closer to a real recession. donald trump has a turnaround plan that he will be discussing at the detroit economic club tomorrow. and plan will restore jobs business investment which is the key to job growth. it will bring back real prosperity in america. there are three key elements. the first is a substantial reduction in the business tax breaks from 39% to 15%. right now corporations located
7:29 pm
in the united states pay the highest corporate tax rate in the world. it is nominally 39%. ireland has a corporate tax rate of only 12.5%. many countries are leaving their country or establishing operations outside the country. we need to lower those tax rates to restore the attractiveness of doing business in the united states. shortcond feature is a repatriation holiday where corporations will be able to move back to the united states with $3 trillion currently parked overseas. profits they were made here but are now sitting in other countries that should be brought back to the united states. the companies are hit with such a punishingly high corporate tax rate. this repatriation holiday would reduce that rate to 10%.
7:30 pm
trillionbring back $3 that could be used to invest in computers and factories and trucks. everything that is needed to hire more people. the third aspect of the donald trump economic >> repealing obamacare and so many other regulations that are smothering it -- businesses big and small. anyone who has tried to's start a business knows that it is virtually impossible. there are so many regulations to comply with. it delays the process for a year or more and had some question the cost. president obama has been the king of revelation -- regulations. he is added 600 major regulations that has an impact
7:31 pm
of $100 million or more. is suffocating under federal regulation. we need to make it possible for businesses. if you are looking for a job growth and opportunity, you have to also exhibit from the employer's point of view. -- clinton: the phone number the phone number is on the screen. you can read where she is a columnist and she has written a book called beating obamacare. washington post has this headline. i want to get your reaction. he has named his economic team
7:32 pm
late last week and his new team of billionaire advisors could threaten his populist message. >> i don't think that's true. this is not a nation of envy. people aspire in many cases to be rich through hard work. cap on your economic team not just academics like stephen moore. also people who have done it in the real world that has been a credit. i want to show you a short clip of president obama at a news conference asked by a reporter. we will look at that and get your reaction. >> yes i think the republican nominee is unfit.
7:33 pm
i said so last week and he keeps improving it. -- on proving it. the notion that he would attack goldstar family that had made sacrifices onnary behalf of our country. havethey doesn't appear to basic knowledge around critical in europe or the middle east or in asia. mincey is woefully unprepared to do his job. host: what is your reaction? partisansed with his
7:34 pm
blather. host: anything else you want to add? >> it is partisan blather. host: let's get to our first call. ginny from bluefield, west virginia. good morning. she is quite right about the recession that is coming. people don't have money to buy everything. we do have a big problem on coming. donald trump is absolutely right and the question is can he actually stop these agreements or do what he needs to do. designed not to make any changes. you cannot revoke them.
7:35 pm
i will have to look at these treaties. power resides with -- the senate. it is very regrettable that under president obama that was usurped. he should never have been able to reach an agreement with iran without the invitation of the senate. i have a phd from columbia and nothing filled me more -- fills me more with regret on how the constitution has been tattered. host: good morning richard.
7:36 pm
good morning. basically what we have in there andashington is one party the republicans of the democrats will come together to fit how power and control of the people. that example when boehner took over the house and the senate. eliminatingned on obamacare which they did not do. "are, they were going to get androl and close them down protect it. they did not do it. doneabsolutely have nothing.
7:37 pm
everything in the republican party, we need an independent to get away from this total control. being used as slaves, close to it. >> i'm glad you're calling about this. the fact is i believe one of the reasons donald trump swept the knockingn primaries down 16 professional politicians is that he speaks very candidly and it was refreshing to the people and it gave the public some hope that the nominee would actually listen to them and their servants. reasons why i'm a trump supporter is i want to see an outsider in the white house. i was disappointed this week endorsed johnump mccain and some of the other republicans in their primary contests. more peoplencourage
7:38 pm
to challenge the go along to get along career politicians. writeups for it to on donald trump statements. there is talk of an intervention, whatever that might mean. what is your sense of the state at this point. i'm looking at the most recent poll. 3 it was completed on august so it was completed after both the conventions and it is true that she has played ahead somewhat. let me point out that even that coal shows that only 22% of likely voters trust mrs.
7:39 pm
clinton. the poll also shows that majority of the voters believe that donald trump will do a ander job with the economy a better job on maintaining crime and order. host: there is a tweak here from karen on the economy. do you see it that way? out that these major architects of trump's economic plan. what we have learned is when you smash corporate taxes and increase economic activity.
7:40 pm
we are languishing along far below what it should be. both of those presidents /corporate taxes and brought in tremendous extra revenue because of increased business activity. host: someone pointed out that donald trump's team of economists did not include any women. your reaction? >> i thought that was meaningless. people'sook at credentials based on their genitalia or their gender. it was a well put together team. host: let's go to ron.
7:41 pm
a key for waiting period caller: good morning betsy. he said the tax rate is 35% but we know the rich people have every deduction in the world because mr. romney only pays the tax rate of 12% so that means the rich has every loophole in the world. so if we would just have the 15% that you talked about and eliminated every single tax loophole that we have. mr. donaldoint is trump has not released his taxes so we can see them sit we want

7:43 pm
rate was. he handed them a highly redacted because he did not want to be a victim of it. the notion that successful people should pay more than the law requires them to pay that some help paying more than uncle .am pays if you have agreements with the law, you should change the law. donald trump has proposed law so thata tax most of us will be able to file our taxes on a simple piece of paper and a lot of the room -- google's he referred to would be gone.
7:44 pm
i agree with your spirit. i don't agree with those strategy of tax shaming people who abide by the law and file a perfectly legal tax return and then are dragged across the carpet for paying less than someone thinks they should pay. you can read more about that opinion with the new york post. it is called the tax shaming track. betsy: i want to point out one more thing. although he is not released his did thern, if you entire 96 days would be taken up even if heg frenzy
7:45 pm
has complied with every letter of the law. here is what we do know. they have both filed financial disclosures and i have at them very carefully. mrs. clinton, 11 pages on which she lists her sources of income. it is all paid speaking engagements and royalties from books she has written about herself. we can say that 11 pages, her line of work is cells -- self-promotion. then we look at donald trump's financial disclosure form. he lists 135 real estate making ventures.
7:46 pm
in addition, substantial management fees. what should americans pick? the talker or the builder? offeems to me we are better picking someone who knows how to run businesses. caller: limit get through these points very quickly. when of the reasons why i am supporting donald trump is not because he understands the economy but because he understands the economy in depth. mr. obama wants me to go to school and to get certificates. i have been in business for over

7:49 pm
so many people are having this experience and it is just outrageous. let me compare what i have already said. he has the experience running companies. it has been steadily declining in this country. if companies do not invest, they cannot hire any more drivers. that is like business investment is the key to economic growth. here we have hillary clinton's economic plan. i urge you to go and look at the website. it is called the fair growth plan.
7:50 pm
it never appears in her plans. it is all about redistributing incomes. has such a list of regulations she wants to impose on the economy. rules about who works part-time and full-time. gender and racial preferences all through job creation. again and again, more and more regulations on business. she requires that they be farsighted. uncle sam is going to be in every board room. error in thed the heart.
7:51 pm
that is going to kill this economy and he has it just right. -- >> i believe the core of his supports, i'm not going to speak for everyone. i think the core of his support really centers on the disappointment in the economy. saying is i'm going to bring this country together. we need more economic opportunity. we've got to work towards american unity. i've been trying to understand what it is that has driven

7:53 pm
appeal is racist and offensive. we do have to acknowledge that but let's not lose sight of the real pain that many americans are feeling. betsy: i would say that statement is hypocritical to say the least. that she is going to close down coal mines. on has turned her facts those who make their living in fossil fuels. she has taken a stand against fracking. i know how destructive this is. would bring so many jobs new york state. when she talks about her sympathy, these coal miners know
7:54 pm
she is there what -- number one enemy. donald trump on the other hand allpledged to revitalize aspects of the energy industry in the united states. but ift green energy fuel energy as well. become energy independent and at the same time that so many people lack to work. she is a hypocrite when she pledges jobs to coal miners. host: we will have his speech live. once that happens, you can watch at any time.
7:55 pm
next call for betsy mcquay, the former new york lieutenant governor. good morning betsy. coming in defense of donald trump. a vote for hillary is a vote for international bankers. i don't understand why people do not get that. they are demonizing him so badly and hillary sold uranium to the russians. is that he's a traitor. that is all i have to say. this destruction of europe right now by muslim member -- immigration is coming here and people do not even see it. i think you have raised some good points. we found this headline.
7:56 pm
it says that mccoy is war between good and evil. what were you saying here? we found this headline. is when i gave a speech in cleveland at the gop convention. connecticut is one of the heavily taxed states. had eight children on politics for many years. have given out families and businesses by taxing them to death. they have driven down property values and they have destroyed economics. that withaining donald trump at the top of the ticket, this is an enormous opportunity for people to rally support for economic growth.
7:57 pm
it was an effort to turn it into a red state. states you at the 34 will see that they have higher economic growth and they are more friendly to fossil fuels. people are voting with their feet to live in those states. texas, florida, other states where you can go and work and the government does not take away everything you have impacts of the end of the year. good morning. i think the republican party needs to take a good look at themselves in the mirror. it was thel,
