[inaudible conversations] whether it is jobs or illegal immigration use all the 800 of 0 people that became citizens that were supposed to be deported. i think it went great because i was able to explain based on all of the online polls the first time you are matched up one-on-one with someone. the republicans were very smart going against the ted cruz [inaudible] but you know it's about making america great again and we are well on our way to doing that.
>> i thought it was good. i got everything else i wanted to say other than the transgression is because she takes all o of the spending of literally hundreds of millions. i didn't want to do it with chelsea who is the wonderful young lady, i didn't say that i was going to bed i though but it turned out really well. >> do you feel that was fair for the presidential debate?
[inaudible conversations] every state you have a very good chance and it's different in every state. hillary clinton has a chance to do better and no is now with the strength of barack obama there's no question about that and that's going to be an important part of the campaign but the turnout is imported and they probably left [inaudible conversations] he's gotten all of the votes
put forth on the things that you can do for the jobs to meet over here what we find is in those states that is what they are looking for. they have had plenty of candidates speak to the it's hard to make change and progre progress. she doesn't give up, she fights hard, makes a little progress, comes back for more and is always looking for solutions. any problem in front of her she will try to find solutions.
her husband said at the convention [inaudible] >> he said she's experienced but as bad experience. has bad experience. how do you take that? [inaudible] i think the value of her experience is showing a [inaudible] >> even though bernie said she doesn't have good judgment? [inaudible] >> i find it inexplicable.
[inaudible conversations] that was very well received a. >> one of the struggles for donald trump he wouldn't say why he's not willing to put out his tax -- >> he has been advised by his attorney not to put them out. if she would put forth her e-mails, he would do that even against the advice of his attorney. he also directed people to the
>> what do you think that means that >> i don't know except on most businesses it's the duty not to pay more taxes then you have to. [inaudible] it is essential donald trump and american taxpayers pay what they are required under the law. no one has offered any violation not because he hasn't looked at them and i don't think there's any doubt the irs would avoid charging donald trump
[inaudible] >> are you worried at all he will pull out of the debate [inaudible] she painted a positive optimistic picture and focus on doing the right things for the middle-class anmiddle class and, give people the tools they need to be better lives and raise the minimum wage, making sure you can get to college debt-free. voters don't like all this back and forth, they want to hear what can you do for me.
she wants to go up completely to renewables. what do you think of that? >> she laid out a specific plan to produce a clean renewable energy. she has very ambitious goals. it will be enough to cover every home in america by the end of the second term. it's a strong commitment to [inaudible] >> if she's going against obam obama's policy [inaudible
>> when he raised the issue of her stamina [inaudible conversations] >> how many times in the last year, i don't know what he was thinking. sure she had a couple of down days. all of us have been there and as women we try to keep working and not talk about it because we have stuff to do. that's the kind of secretary she was. this is the woman that sat for 11 hours in front of the committee with people wanting to tear her from limb to limb so i think it's a mistake to say somehow she doesn't have the stamina. i think she has shown that. [inaudible] >> i don't think that he really believe that. [inaudible] >> i think that he was trying to
get away with the fact saying that she wasn't presidential and he didn't want to acknowledge there isn't a good reason to say that other than the obvious reason so he is trying to avoid explaining why she doesn't look presidential. i think that he was already down the rabbit hole and had a hard time getting back out. [inaudible] >> i thought it was unprofessional and not very presidential. [inaudible] you talk about facial
expressions and interruptions he didn't look like a statesman for makinandhe looked like he was at someone was questioning if he was a good business man or a smart guy or a rich guy and that isn't the temperament of the american people are looking for a. of [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> she talked about russia and their sacred ability to go after the democratic national
committee. why doesn't she think russia could get the e-mails when she was secretary of state, trust me, she can. [inaudible] >> no, you didn't do your research. go back and do your research. i am done talking to you >> go back and look at. [inaudible] what does that mean in terms of the marching order -- >> it means that we failed to make between 1.5 to $2 million a
day. it doesn't take that much to run a terrorist organization but to give them upwards of 2 million a day to come in and get so much control of the oil fields in iraq and other places that was a foolish decision to allow them to do that. we could still go and do that with the forces we have that we don't. what we do is see convoys coming in example that happened two months ago we 120 vehicle convoy filled with all sorts of stuff for the black market and what do we do? there's a chance there may be collateral damage so we are going to look at drive off into the sun. 120 v. corps convoy our military knew was the nicest convoy that had products they were going to
sell on the market but we don't do that because we are incompetent and our military people are saying let us go for this we know exactly where the target is. we are dealing with an enemy that burns people alive. it just the other day they were hanging them from me coke. this is the enemy we're facing that we are being told drop leaflets on them first to let them know that we are coming. [inaudible] >> he crushed it tonight. no doubt, hands-down in terms of
the type of questions asked and answers given you had one set of answers out of hillary clinton that offered no change to the direction of the country and another candidate in donald trump that offered enormous, extraordinary change. one of the things is economic prosperity. the first half of the debate donald trump kept bringing up we must bring economic prosperity back to the country and bring jobs back. he gave very specific issues like nafta and the tpp. we are getting ripped off on the trade deals because of political people who know nothing about the economic conditions of the world and they just give away
things. we can't do that. the world is different and it's changed dramatically the last 40 or 50 years. we have this trade imbalance is our greatest weakness. >> so you think that it's a good thing to abolish? >> we will renegotiate the. think about what he said tonight. we give them something and they charge a 16% tax. why would we do something that tom and allow that to happen when companies are leaving this country and going into mexico why is that happening? is it because the regulations in the country?
these are things that were brought up that are like a ton of bricks on the small-business and those that are trying to create jobs. on the transpacific partnership deal, there's 12 countries involved in the. small countries benefit like the big countries. that's ridiculous. if it were done in a smart way it should be done by a lot of. but right now we have this multilateral tpp that doesn't benefit the united states at a
all. the members of the un security council are you encouraging donald trump to view russia as a partner? >> of the current administration come int and they go back eight years and secretary clinton went to russia to do a reset it's a complete failure. if you listen to what the russian ambassador said this last week due to your research and see what kind of things he said about our relationship. it's not a good place to be. what the administration has done is lost options when it comes to dealing with the problem in the middle east.
it didn't bring instability in yen or a back debate could -- cnn or iraq. it jusyou just talked about allg iran to have nuclear weapons. so now to get to your question we have a common problem which is the rapid rise of radical islamist. it's a problem and everybody knows it. it's like 25 countries if i had a great fear of looking at 11,000 people just this past year killed or wounded by radical islamists so we have a problem and that means we have a potential common enemy so should we consider working with other partners and donald trump
mentioned nato and the middle eastern neighborhood and some of the neighbors what do they want, u.s. leadership. right now there is a deficit of u.s. leadership right here at home and globally. secretary clinton can talk all she wants. if you go back and listen to what she said she's reversed her position. this is a person who will say or do anything to become president of the united states.
which is something that we all appreciate. to be the only fact checker in the room. >> >> to be the completely off topic. but the point of view if you point your friend to say say, down everything will be okay. >> i don't know if that is his role to understand the political process. will. >> and asking what did the obama race look like? so that was a great resource
for us. >> are you happy? yes. argued happy with hillary clinton performance quite. >> she did a terrific job. she came across as somebody ready to assume the job one day number-one. >> but i was surprised frankly he was a lot better prepared there was questions he knew were coming up like to defeat isis and his taxes he had very pour answers. his dancers were re-entering -- meandering i should not have been surprised by was surprised but the secretary said she was prepared for the office.
>> when you raise taxes on people they leave. why day you think chicago was in the situation is in quicks what about african-american employment? because businesses are taxed and regulated out of existence. so with crime down in new york i created, a 500,000 new jobs 500,000 were working. they were mostly minorities with nowhere in the history of the era's.
with the missed description of stop and frisk was a mis service to the people of the united states and african-american community. one is shot because one is shot every two hours take the guns out of the hands of the bad guys. that is why he will be president. >> he did not say that. he said it would be helpful in the city of chicago. when he made the statement originally was about chicago and the height crimes and expressed the reservation the first time he said that to be applied to every city. the man standing next to me
is a policeman. so to have constitutional all over the united states but he told the american people the false lead. what hillary clinton told the people is a falsehood but she failed the bar exam maybe she does not know. but there is not a lawyer in this country that does not know stop and frisk is constitutional and it is a police technique used by the police department in the united states. >> in fact,, she displayed tonight for someone who thinks a little beyond the spend of the journalist for the economy in foreign policy to do a terrible job.
you have a blanket for michele says she does not steel mine. laugh laugh she would. but that was very moving. as a reminder of the great french ships we have developed over the last eight years. the couple of people here i want to abolish the longstanding commitment end of the national conference of american indians. [applause] we are honored to have the '01 of the last best

soared across the federal government people are served by so many dedicated talented new americans the deputies and assistance secretaries the executive to rector of a native american affairs that is just a few m by creating the of whitehouse council we have a long term cabinet level on the country through the decision making process. i am proud of what we have done together.
up right at every wrong. in almost every area is to protect the secret plans for future generations. 420,000 acres of original homeland to the original owners. who thought we established the land buyback program to consolidate individuals to the tribal trust. end the violence against women act. whether they were native american or not. we work to ensure equal justice under the law. many of you have come
together to make your voice is heard. [applause] and in a spirit of cooperation to make progress for the indian country this highlights the every federal agency truly consults sovereign to sovereign. so we were to create jobs and expand opportunities with high-speed internet to abroad become enemy. with the affordable hair-care. with the indian health care improvement act. [applause]
smith colleges and universities with indian and adjudication as we prepare our young people they began their own culture. without having to leave land that is what has driven the work to connect more young people to each other. so that is just some of the progress we have made together. keep fighting to the finish line. and when this comes to an end i will be standing alongside you. i believe that yes progress depends in part whose sets in the oval office.
not just to the precedent is. to those that are good with the willingness to organize and mobilize and i am optimistic we will be on a path forward that we have set that the hour progress will continue nothing else would make a few optimistic those that seem to the national anthem they shared with us their dreams and a traditional dance but i can only do a when they are around because i am basically just watching them.
they were very patient with me. let's say young woman from the comanche nation parley this year wrote me a letter to say she was headed campaign speech back in 2008 to represent the native americans in the middle of my speech she would yell as loud as she could from the balcony that can mean many things. sometimes is as good or not so good. but i answered back when i am a elected i will not forget you. know eight years later has gone to accomplish pretty remarkable things into it and have those obvious advantages but earned a
scholarship and graduated from college. and then call the 92 year-old grandmother. o dash operated and then joined. en now teaches kindergarteners and a tribal college. so there is the woman who knows the meaning of giving back. [applause] and they told her house where she was the came to the realization. did was not going off returning with education with a sense of pride to be indigenous that they are in
control with such a powerful thing to experience. so to understand to be in charge of their own destiny. how can you not be optimistic? how can you not be optimistic about all the nations represented as? and everybody in this auditorium and everybody back home to respect their communities in this whole time i have heard you and i have seen you. and then others will follow. >> i hope i said at a direction that people can
[inaudible] good morning. welcome to our event which we called breaking through power. on the 50th anniversary of occasions that it used to put forces into motion and led to the creation of many citizen groups who led the struggle successfully for the advances in the period with the environmental consumer and other achievements. breaking through power
but it is being live streamed by c-span and of course, by real news never -- now work in maryland. [applause] and the largest and more read directions and reforms ever to our knowledge of american history. and that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. people civilized and gets into silos and the struggles day after day. we would like to see a larger framework of democracy.
did when they have managed to put democracy off-limits. this is a very serious deficiencies and when we say it is off-limits with the cooperation of the media to make itself of the accomplishments and into the electoral process if there should be new directions directions, and new shoes soared to wonder where the verification or the challenges only one has to look into programs to
illustrate that that point. and the point to show up is important civic and rallies in neighborhoods and the courts to show up this half of democracy ended this . with virtual reality reality, showing up as the one of the great perils of democracy because it isn't exercised we are pleased to have the students from the college to expose themselves to civic accomplishments
unlike other colleges and universities with secondary schools in the area in did not respond it is important to know again and again that showing up is what started our country this is a $2 bill and the gathering of the man who signed the declaration of independence the matter what you say they are slave voters are called native americans savages and excluded women. but their time in history was a courageous act. i thought there signing their death warrant by the hand of king george road back three per cosimo's time that the citizens showed up. we have to.
we have a wonderful lineup of speakers. all of our own dash oliver hall as he is hour. >> end to talked-about corporate person and in good . leading experts to have in the tennessee valley authority and what the energy policy shin the end of the two and earned her a chance and go successfully with high-school students. >> the lobbyist, but the
>> good morning to all who were here today and to our audience on c-span and joining us online. everybody ready to start breaking through power? [applause] let's get on with it. our first speaker of the morning is the editor of the zero weekly news paper who has been on the crime beat for 38 years do we want to have to be better than aaron next step should but good to corporate writer one and he
spoke well about putting civil society off-limits. i went down to is the congress it was spectacular i don't think anybody would to that but people go and they hear the authors read the book you can ask questions or stand in line. and i have been interviewing authors to write books about corporate power and controls and there are some great ones. still make after why did i
theft. but if the justice department follows the part -- patterned on hsbc, the general motors, and no executive will seek jail. this is not because the facts to warrant the record is clear on all these cases. it is because when it comes to large corporations corporations, corporate crime is about law school it is not about that generally big corporations. it is about raw power politics. can i sponsor the of life of congress crack symplegades unjust and hough of all the
great books and corporate power needed to corporate crime on everything but not all on the subway you need to know is about raw power politics. and since i have spent given 20 minutes, here is corporate crime in a nutshell. number one, will start with number 20, corporate crime and flicks far more damage on decide the man street crime combined. weather in bodies or injuries or dollars lost winning by a landslide just a few examples there is a bunch, just this last year credit suisse pled guilty to helping thousands file false income tax returns and fined 2.$6 billion.
guilty to trade its stations forced to pay $9 billion. with a corporate crimes the cost of those dwarf that out of pocket cost of all burglaries and robberies in the united states health care fraud alone anywhere from a hundred billion to 100 billion so no question the kinds of crimes committed by wellfleet -- wells fargo is just the dwarf to what is happening on the street. now people say don't be ridiculous. it isn't the violent crime and i have had experts tell me you cannot compare apples and oranges it is not violent crime but it is. for example. the fbi estimates 14,000 americans are murdered every year. compare this to the 54,000
that die every year on the job from occupational diseases like the black lung disease. did with pollution event contaminated through the hospital violence with the john hopkins study 250,000 americans die every year from medical errors. making it the third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer. and rarely prosecuted and in west region year replaced to the caw whom with 29 americans dead and that the company is a lawful practice was the root cause of the
disaster. what happened? the u.s. attorney going after them that was in and but those that have the power to define bill law under which they live. street thugs? mafia? corporate criminal center all around us here in washington doing it. and despite the fact that they still violate their own laws with impunity. of course, exhibit a of the
automobile industry has worked its will to blocks legislation to impose criminal sanctions but moon and giving this speech of his years ago to pass federal law ended great scene was city and she had sanctions that was one thing that was put out. number 17. corporation commits to crime but you but it has affected the general motors car and the engine shuts down while you were driving and you end up killing someone as a result.
this and say about the crash hadn't been but it is exhilarated. >> but to have those commercially processed which is the tip of bavaria are gestures have corporate rounded doing. for eric is but there are thousands to give money legally through political but to pollution lauder's waterways but there others that our corporate defense lawyers said could offer low level of employee to go to jail in exchange for
promises not to touch the company or higher level executives. for every company convicted of homicide in the death of a worker is very rare. there are hundreds of others that don't get wrecked - - arrested as they are killed on the job. but this is from the corporate crime but if you increase the lot they would be left for lack of resources but to increase he will see in in for those public interest groups that
that is when i started the publication but if you want the corporate crime referred the with those non prosecution agreements and the deferred prosecution agreements or pleading guilty to a defunct entity of the corporation. number 12 corporation was the deferred prosecution agreement. in the '90s it there is
evidence of the crime the wicket dash against each individual and executives would plead guilty. then the justice department said there is deferred prosecution agreement you can charge the company in is but with wrongdoing we will drop the charges but they called to garin of the puck. >> but they will not be criminally you been prosecuted. there was an article last week that this is the heavy
c. usair and just one unit of the company has had any assets n but they were not. but corporate criminals to not like to be put on probation. week commit a crime and put it down after we get out but we hated because then judge puts the officer of the united states government to make sure they're not doing anything wrong. but that was the all last one. and they don't like to be charged with homicide it
used to be a district attorney in los angeles who would investigate every worker death as a homicide and there were some cases. they hate that. did not want that label of public perception. there are very few prosecutor of crime''. they love best then with the government. there are pluses and minuses to that and that is the undermining of the justice system. number six turning themselves over to authorities most are driven by the law firms that come up with a fax to know there's criminal activity go to the justice department, approved for a of prosecution environment for the market
