  • Team and Friends. A busy month! Recently back from Democratic National Convention, where I had privilege of serving as Team Leader of the Press Briefing Room (team of 17 each morning before convention's evening session -- great work by our young journalists of RWA/SFC and other professionals, and many spokespeople from the Hill and agencies, who were part of the team. Over 400 media including the TV networks and C-Span heard from and asked questions to top Hillary and convention strategists Robbie Mook, John Podesta, Brian Fallon, Leah Daughtry, Jennifer Palmieri, Karen Finney, April Mellody, and others each morning. During the evening sessions, we were given floor access each day to help liaison media to interviews. Obviously got very little sleep all week, but did get in early AM runs including finding and joining 200 members of a group doing intervals up and down the famous "Rocky" stairs at the Philadelphia Art Museum. In addition to the convention sessions, that's what passed as fun.

LISTEN LIVE at both www.alannathan.com and www.mainstreetradionetwork.com. Show will also be archived and podcast. My points included that the event was catalyzed by a deadly mix of easy guns (2nd amendment never contemplated a militia of "one" allowing all to have guns willy-nilly) and flaming rhetoric (including Palin saying she put Cong. Giffords in her gun "sight," and right-wing people like Sharron Angle's "2nd Amendment" solutions), and yes, John Stewart is right that we should now rally for sanity. Combine the flame-fanning and easy guns with a nut, and the result was catastrophic. I added this point: What will it take to get gun control to stop pistols from being allowed, given not only crime in America but our assassination history from John Kennedy to MLK to RFK to Columbine to VA Tech to now AZ?

  • October 11, 2010 -- 2:30 PM -- Interviewed by CNN concerning new Rand report that legalizing marijuana will reduce Mexican cartel violence at border cities and California proposition being voted in November on legalizing marijuana. Among Bob's points: The cartels will sell even worse drugs, will still sell marijuana by underpricing, and besides, hospital emergency room cases would soar with legalization. Also, legalizing would take normative power of the law away from the persuasion arsenal of parents—and any legal availability increase means consumption will rise dramatically. To the argument that alcohol is legal so why not drugs, Bob said we have 15 million alcoholics and 5 million drug addicts; do we want the 5 to become 15? Bob also cited all the Drug Czars of both parties and all administrations, including current, who oppose the California legalization.

  • September 18, 2010 -- 6:00 PM -- Guest on Radio America/Main Street Radio Network "Battle Line," 100 stations, host Alan Nathan. Discussed health bill's impact. To the question of why smaller than expected support, I made point that it's basically split but, 25% of people thought the bill should be stronger - it's not that they oppose what was passed as a step - and the polls never reflect that. In addition, people do NOT want to lose the new coverage for pre-existing conditions, children under 26, and seniors' "donut holes" for prescriptions. I was asked about the 20-state AGs' lawsuit and I pointed to the Constitution's General Welfare clause, car insurance requirements, and the fact that Republicans would just love to go back to free reign for insurance companies to double premiums and not cover the now 50 million without coverage (until the bill kicks in). The other panelist in the debate, was Amy Ridenauer, president of the conservative National Center for Public Policy Research.

  • July 13, 2010 -- 8:30 PM -- Interviewed live by Lars Larson on Westwood One's 180 stations, one of country's biggest radio shows. In Larson announcer's tease into our interview, the recording bashed "Obama's billion dollar hour." Though my interview was to be about our Arizona Republic Free National Parks oped, I tore into the bias by saying, "I don't know how I'm going to feel in this interview after hearing that. In fact, Obama passed Pay-as-you-Go to balance the budget, a law Bush killed for 8 years even though Clinton had used it to make a surplus. So now we can go back to balancing the budget." Larson responded, "We can go that route. Yes, my announcer tends to go a little far out." I added, "Yes, Pay-go is a good step." Then he was indeed very nice and objective in discussing our oped on Free Parks for the rest of the 10 minutes: July 14, 2010 -- "Waive Entrance Fees At National Parks" -- in The Arizona Republic -- by Robert Weiner and Jonathan Battaglia of RWA.

          • Partial transcript:
    "It's the US military's policy not to eradicate the drugs but to go after the financiers from the top down," said Robert Weiner, a former drug policy spokesperson for the White House. "It doesn't really get at the root of the problem."
    "Right now the US military has said that it would destabilize the economy of Afghanistan if you eradicate the drugs," said Weiner. "What a huge mistake! Four-star General McCaffrey has said we will not win this war until we eradicate the drugs and stop the ability of Al Qaeda to fund the terrorists and to be the terrorists."
    Weiner said it is the world's responsibility to come together in fighting drugs.
    "If we do not stop the opportunity of the terrorists of making money through drugs they will continue to harass, haunt and kill all over the world," he added.

Also pointed out that the slight drop in poll support for reform is money-advertising driven and temporary, just as was in 90's-the polls will bounce back up to supporting reform and will backlash against the right-wing actions, just as support for Sarah Palin faded after the first blush when people realized her vacuity. I urged the critical OH & PA listeners to contact their members of Congress re the need for reform with a public option so insurance companies have to compete, and agreed both Congress and White House need to be aggressive in message on real health benefits and consumer savings under the plan.

  • June 30, 2009 -- 1:06 PM -- Live on "Native America" on 45 stations mostly in West but also live streamed nationally on www.nativeamericacalling.com to discuss drug legalization. I agree with administrations of both parties and Congress who regularly oppose it, because would take the normative power of the law away from parents as a tool and would dramatically increase youth and adult drug abuse and all its problems. We just published an oped letter on this issue: June 18, 2009 -- "Drugs Have Not 'Won The War,' Legalization Would Be Catastrophe" -- in The New York Times
  • June 23, 2009 -- 2:00 PM -- WASN 1500 AM Ohio-PA: Reported live from the White House Press Room on one of our favorite progressive radio shows, Louie Free's "Brain Food from the Heartland," Ohio-Pennsylvania's WASN 1500, with our regular ½ hour segment, "Inside Washington Report". Couldn't have been much more "inside" than today, at the WH right after the news conf. I conveyed my impressions: I said that President is brilliant guy, amazing depth on issues, what a change, and policies direction is fantastic for the country and world. Thought he hit just the right message on Iran… candid about McCain's pushing him more forceful but equally solid on not being foil for Iran and reform impetus must be Iranian people… He is completely right on need for stimulus… He is right that NHI public option is needed to stop over-profiteering (greed) of the insurance companies from driving health care costs; I stated that hope he can hold his ground on this, R's are lobbying hard against. Not sure Pres meant "Fed has done a good job" when even Greenspan said he made huge mistake to ignore need to regulate more… whole philosophy of deregulation and inaction was one factor driving current economic hole; new CFPA bill huge step forward.
    This was the fourth Presidential news conference at the White House, and we've been able to participate there in all… a high privilege as all the media there agree despite the perceived cynicism. | Photo 1 | Photo 2

As a participant there at the news conference, I said excitement in media in WH briefing room before the escort to the East room was palpable as media knew were part of history. I said to cite 100 days is legitimate marker the media and Roosevelt created, and Obama's bold vision and activist big-picture solving of problems inherited was being called by historians on same level as Roosevelt. I laid out what Obama and administration have put forward from recovery for workers rather than just the rich to reversing policies on torture and politicized science to focus on Afghanistan and Pakistan rather than Iraq is exactly what American people voted for. When I was challenged on torture working, I said that the FBI guy who interviewed the lead al Qaeda operative that the past administration touted as a success of torture actually said he got more out of him through traditional techniques before the CIA contractors jumped in with waterboarding 180+ times, and Obama is right that that is not what we are, and torture was a propaganda recruiting tool for al Qaeda.

Link to oped: http://www.weinerpublic.com, 20090418post.html Dr. Berg is director of a breast and prostate cancer lab at George Washington University.

Her work is widely cited by TV and press including NY Times, Washington Post, AP. Over 500,000 people die a year from cancer, each year 200,000 get breast cancer and 200,000 get prostate cancer.

  • April 15, 2009 - 5:05-5:15 PM (prime drive time) -- Interviewed live on WGUF-FM, Host Dave Elliott, Naples FL re the tax tea parties. I pointed out that they are basically saying they are "mad as hell and don't want to take it" but in reality are a fringe group of people who are in the minority opposing and bashing President Obama for any reason they can think of, who lost the election. and that when you get down to the tax issue, it's hard to understand what they are mad about since 95% of Americans get tax breaks under the new plan, and they are countering their own interest in Obama's programs to create fairness and justice in the economy. I said I never do understand how some middle and poor Americans think that under the Republican program of tax breaks for the rich that they themselves will be helped -- quite the reverse is the historical reality, and it's living in an illusion to think rich tax breaks help the middle and lower: the income disparity has widened dramatically. When host Dave Elliott raised the "spending into oblivion" argument raised by some, I pointed out that it was the last Administration that took Clinton's surplus and turned the debt into $10 trillion; and now, when they created an economic mess, it's like saying the house is on fire so you can't use any water because it's scarce. You have to, to fix the emergency.

Also mentioned humorous history episode when working with earthy, candid, brilliant Ed Koch in Congress as Bella Abzug yelled into the phone (and we in Ed's office could overhear her on phone even in next room from Ed) that Ed was "sexist" because he supported Bess Meyerson for NYC Mayor instead of Bella herself. and Ed walked into staff room after the call and wondered how it was sexist to support another woman. This was before Ed later ran and won a couple years later for Mayor.

  • February 19, 2009 -- 8:05 AM Interviewed Live on KTRH 740 AM Houston news-talk, hosts JP Pritchard and Lana Hughes, re Alex Rodriguez. Led with Obama statement at last week's WH news conf and described that the room essentially stopped and took special attention when Wash Post Michael Fletcher asked President about Rodriguez and major league baseball, and Obama said "most concerned about message to kids." I said was exactly right, there is no accountability by MLB, their drug policy is a sham, the 103 players who have tested positive and Rodriguez should face consequences as do all Olympic sports where you are banned for significant time if you are found doing drugs, but they have no consequences in MLB. Rodriguez says he apologizes but he looks forward to playing this season. The real message to kids in baseball is 'you can get away with it,' I concluded.
  • February 7, 2009 -- 6:30 PM (repeated Sun. AM 2/08) guest on Radio America, 70 stations and 600 cities, show "Battle Line", host Alan Nathan, re stimulus, Iraq, and Iran. During conversation I referred to President Obama's Democratic Caucus speech re the bill's balance already including tax cuts but targeted, spending serving as a stimulus, and not repeating mistargeted tax cut and lax oversight mistakes of the last eight years that brought us the economic mess. Also agreed with need for additional infrastructure (host's point) but pointed out Senate Republicans defeated amendment to accomplish that; and I brought up SEC's failure to discipline Madoff despite warnings. In response to criticism of Pelosi's verbal typo of 500 million rather than 500,000 jobs lost each month, I countered with Republican congressmen and senators recently ridiculously doing rings around Jupiter (joke, they actually used earth) to show how many dollar bills are involved. Show can also be heard during airtime at www.alannathan.com and www.radioamerica.org and is podcast, and is archived beginning Monday following Saturday-Sunday airings.

  • January 18, 2009 -- 9:45 AM Interviewed live on Sky News for 10 minutes, aired in 120 countries around the world. Discussed "Change" via Obama's agenda (already underway) vs. last administration: new $800 B stimulus for workers, consumers, and jobs vs. last one from Bush just for financial institutions & Wall Street (all the big Republican donors); no torture, close Guantanamo, focus on Afghanistan where bin Laden/Al Qaeda really are vs. Iraq war missing the target; stem cell research, children's health, national health; tax cuts for middle and working classes who need to use the additional funds instead of the rich. Also discussed policies from reason instead of compulsion, and referenced how even Bush's farewell address showed just simple "good versus evil" and 9-11/9-11/9-11 instead of a sophophisticated understanding of policies which America and the world understand Obama brings, a reason for his high poll ratings versus Bush's tanked ones. Also suggested that while the change will be dramatic and will start now, media assertions of vast action immediately (showed AARP bulletin just out saying "Day 1") are overstated, as much will take months and a few years. Show host: Adam Boulton. Co-guest: Jon-Christopher Bua, Sky News Washington correspondent.

  • November 18, 2008 -- 10:15 AM C-Span TV Q&A Live at Steny Hoyer News Conference at National Press Club- Was second questioner, I asked about how to restore respect for Congress from dismal 12-23% approval ratings, lower than Bush (i.e., our oped). Steny gave terrific answer that Actions and Accomplishment will define public respect, Obstructionism will be reduced with increased D numbers, House will pass bills (and in fact did so last time but the Senate blocked them by cloture), Senate will now reduce cloture abuses with 57-60 D number higher than current 51, and Obama will sign the bills. He said polls showed country felt moving in wrong direction. He concluded that Congress will act now to reverse that and a Democratic President and Congress will produce a product with the change that makes the country feel better and be better. | VIDEO (fast forward to 10:20 AM) | Transcript

  • November 8, 2008 -- 6:30 PM Interviewed on Radio America "Battle Line" re election, upcoming Administration, and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. When challenged on Rahm's supposed partisanship, I was able to give personal White House experience with Rahm who worked with Democrats and Republicans in a White House successfully stewarding crime bill and welfare reform, not partisan issues, and creating a surplus and jobs. I also pointed to broad issues President Obama likely will want to deal with at the outset, including the economy/stimulus and the war.

  • November 4, 2008 -- 3:05 PM Interview live on Radio New Zealand
  • October 25, 2008 -- 12:40 PM Interviewed live on Sky News Television (120 countries) re status of election. Said we will run all the way through but looks good. I used and showed color visual of pollster.com's projected 306 electoral votes to 157 with 75 undecided. I also said McCain will not win throwing out varied new personal attacks that he tries like "terrorist" one week, "Socialist" the next, and what's next -- "space Martian"? I said the election WILL be decided on the issues and I used as visuals the last 3 days of Washington Post headlines -- "Bailout Expands as Distress Spreads" (Sat.), "Greenspan Says Was Wrong on (No) Regulation" (Fri.) -- the Republican policy, and "Job Losses Accelerate" (Thurs.). I said that as we face these crises plus ending the war, Barack Obama's display of cool, calm, and collected is what the American people want, versus McCain's acting mean spirited and not being able to find his way wandering around the stage.

  • October 11, 2008 - 6:30 PM Interviewed on Radio America "Battle Line," host Alan Nathan, re economic crash and election. I opened by citing Treasury Sec Henry Paulson's quote a few months ago: "Our financial institutions are strong. Our banks are strong. They will be strong for many years." I also stated that while everyone is claiming the crash is due to Freddie and Fannie, I stated that foreclosures are only 1% of all homes and far greater damage was done by exorbitant oil prices which blocked people's ability to pay for their usual needs -- including housing, helping lead to the foreclosures. Not only auto and heating costs spiraled beyond belief but the transportation prices of all goods including or related to food, health, and college. While Bush-McCain ignored any discipline on oil companies despite Democrats' attempts in Congress, that stopped the ability of people to pay, drove credit up, and for some reason is an unstated cause of the mess. I also took issue with people challenging the premise of Freddie and Fannie, since home ownership for the poor and middle class is not a bad thing but a good thing, and both parties have properly supported it. The key is allowing the ability to pay the bills.
  • October 4, 2008 - 6:30 PM Interviewed on Radio America "Battle Line," host Alan Nathan, on against Republican speechwriter Michael Long, re Biden-Palin debate. I pointed out that according to CBS and CNN polls, Biden won overwhelmingly (46-21 among uncommitted according to CBS and 51-39 overall acc to CNN), BECAUSE the American people saw through the charade of Palin's tactics for the debate and agreed with Biden's statement of the fundamental differences between Obama-Biden and McCain-Palin on ending the Iraq War and changing the policies that brought the economic crisis. I also pointed out (and I read the Constitution this morning to confirm) that Palin's attempt to expand the power of the Vice Presidency even beyond the outrages of Cheney -- through her statement that "the Constitution allows" it -- is nowhere in the document and is quite scary. The places the VP powers are specified, Article I Section 3, and Article II Section 1, ONLY state that the VP "shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided." I added that Palin's attempt to discard the past was beaten by Biden's effective and accurate linking Bush to McCain. Alan also asked if there could be a racial factor in the election. I mentioned the training I had as communications director for senior CBC members Rangel and Conyers before I went to the Clinton WH and said that there is a likelihood especially given that Gallup just polled that 6% could vote based on race; but Obama is ahead with that already factored in -- the pollsters are more scientific on that now than in the past.
  • September 28, 2008 - 5:30 AM (12:30 PM London time) Interviewed live on SKY NEWS TELEVISION (145 countries) re election and post-debate analysis. Pointed out that polls show Obama won debate by 13 points; House leaders Blount and Hoyer both stated McCain complicated and made more difficult the financial solutions deal; as DNC research pointed out McCain made at least 14 misstatements in the debate from his Lebanon claim (he wasn't even in Congress when the troops went in that he says he voted to stop) to Eisenhower (in the letter he never offered to resign, only to accept responsibility if it failed) to Obama's votes on troops (never voted against troops, only wanted Iraq timeline) to taxes (Obama does not raise taxes and lowers them on all making under 250K.) Also pointed out today's NYX article showing McCain's serious gambling problem – "has gambled for years" and throws out thousands until 2:30 AM, and is how he has compulsively handled his campaign and the issues, as gambling, from Palin to the financial crisis deal/debate no-show-show to Social Security privatization. When asked if we would win election, I said, I expect given the issues that we will gain 20-40 seats in the House, 4-8 in the Senate, and may even win the Presidential election in a landslide, given the 9-point recent lead which could go to 10-15 after McCain's recent debacles.
  • September 13, 2008 - 6:00 PM and 9/14, 2008 - 3:00 AM Radio America, "Battleline" with Alan Nathan re: campaign, mostly Iraq -- emphasized that while McCain and Bush surged in Iraq, Al Qaeda and the Taliban surged in Afghanistan and Pakistan

Then we talked about Iraq/Afghanistan (I pointed out Obama has led the agenda) and racial politics (I said he is fully entitled to say the facts of what he looks like and only by claiming it is "the race card", which McCain did, does it become "the race card" – more McCain low road)

Debated Gary Alldrich, conservative, re the Supreme Court's Guantanamo decision supporting habeas corpus and opposing holding prisoners for as much as 6 years without trials. Had fun asking Aldrich, a former FBI agent, how he explained his agency, the FBI, specifically opposing the CIA's torture techniques and making the case against it to the administration but being overruled. His answer was something like they do a different type of prisoner... which I said was nonsense, since of course the FBI also handles terrorism. I also brought out how Collin Powell made points that regular prisons could handle detainees under regular legal procedures and we have have 2 million plus in normal prisons including high profile prisoners and horrible violent people. I also reported (as Washington Post said today) that Supreme Court was not saying don't interrogate terrorists, but don't hold some 6 years without cause on flimsy evidence where it's a matter of not wanting to expose the weakness of your case in many cases. I quoted House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers' statement after the ruling, "The Court was rightly outraged that some of the parties in this case had been held for six years without being given the right to challenge." I also repeated President Bush's latest statement that while he will honor ruling, he is staying put on the issue and even proposed congressional legislation to override the Supreme Court (I doubt Congress would come close to letting it pass).

I countered that the insurgents always punt for a while when we go in strong and then come back (as they did when we went in the first time); this is too little too late (3,100 deaths, 25,000 injured including 10,000 loss of limbs and brains, $750 billion dollars); American people believe the questionable mission is no longer worth the price even if it would be nice to "succeed"; they are sick of Bush crying wolf on Iraq; the only reason there are any "terrorists" in Iraq (and only small number are really al Qaeda) is we created the war there; and we should be fighting terror where terror is, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and also stop ignoring confronting the Afghanistan drug lords who fund and harbor the real alQaeda/binLaden HQ.

Also discussed Kerry's viability and acting presidential as we had said needed in our recent Cleveland Plain Dealer op-ed, Starr's appointment as Pepperdine Law Dean a terrible model for students learning law (our recent Washington Times piece) and his actual miniscule constituency but its continuing wedge for the extreme right wing, Republic rich beneficiaries of Bush tax cuts versus real tax reform, and Bush's deficit in contrast to Clinton's surplus and Kerry's proposed actions.

  • April 12/04: PENN AND TELLER TV Show on "War on Drugs," on Showtime. RW extensive interview aired. Was hillarious show but their position was freedom from federal interference. The way they used me as their foil, yelling "WEINER WEINER WEINER" and making fun of our position, was quite remarkable. They did use a lot of my interview throughout program but they surrounded it each time with legalizers. An experience -- Maher was nothing compared to it! But still worth it -- should not have a show without representing a rational position, and our team appreciates the reasoning even through the BS.
