tv Book Discussion on Wake Up America CSPAN August 28, 2016 12:15am-1:01am EDT
[applause] so it was really, it was a great read. it's very inspiring. i want to thank the ford foundation for your support of this amazing work. the fight for 15 is the most important fight for economic justice in america today. i know, the foundation supports that work. i want to give a shout-out to a few other victories, that the ford foundation, and others, in this room have been a part of. it goes to the point that in addition to needing organizing, and needing new forms of building worker power. we need good government. that is shootout to the best
labor department that, we have had since 1938. [applause] >> they're not here. all of you know we have a bold new overtime rule. we're fighting to keep this congress from stealing wages. on this, a few days, i have to say because kicker is here, we had an amazing decision out of the supreme court yesterday on texas' abortion restriction questions and that was fantastic. also, yesterday, we the court decided not grant review of the home care rule, which is another fight that the ford foundation has supported for 20, 30 years. finally, home care workers, are guaranteed, the right to a
federal fair minimum wage, 2 million workers went to bed knowing that for the first time this goes to your point, they have the same right that's most other american workers take for granted. we would not have this, if we didn't have good government a supporting the work that unions, and the people in the groups, have been doing to take advantage this moment. so, i'm really, i'm discouraged, when i look around, and i come from the labor movement. i think about what's happening. but i'm also super excited about the things that we have been able to accomplish as a community over the last several years. i have to admit we were among those that, we wanted to work for the fight for 15. how many people earn less than 15. because of the fight for 15,
today, 1-5 lives in a junior. jurisdisc of 15 dollars. so i want to quote, and i never thought i would do this. the great andrew cuomo. god bless him. shoot for the stars. i should tell you, mingle, have another drink, the foundation is giving away copies of david's book and go line to go powells bookstore and order copies for your family and friends and david will sign it for you. thanks very much. [applause]
>> all right. we're ready to get started. thank you all for come. if you have not yet purchased a copy of the book there are copies. after the author is done speaking, there will be time for a quick "q and a" and then a signing. glass camera crew, from c-span. during the session, if you wouldn't mind just waiting until somebody gives you a microphone. raise your hand, and we'll get you a microphone. tonight i have the pleasure of introducing eric bolling, he's a co-host on the five. and, cashing in. he frequently appear's other fox programs, substitute host for bill o'reillyly.
here to speak about his new book, wake up amount, a please help me in meeting eric bowling. >> can you hear me? >> got it. boy, you guys are diehard. you came out on friday, appreciate that. so, a little his tri of the book. about nine years ago i came over from cnbc, and i add conservative viewpoint and they enjoyed it, that i was bringing and they always asked me, what do you, wake up america, at the end of the cashing in, every week and they said can you write those down? can you do something with those. can you put them together? i will write a book when the time is right.
for years i put it off. martin's press said this is probably the time. think forward, look at what's going on. and it looked like there was going to be a bunch of people and president barak obama so a few people running, on the democrat side. maybe this is about the right time. in the middle of it, i realized that president barak obama had been so aggressively bringing the country to the left, that someone had to step up and do something that stop the slide. and brought us back to center and maybe right. i believe, that the conservative viewpoint, are what brought us for this place, 240 years of success and power, and economic might, and, we need to stay on track.
he said, i want to fundamentally france form america, and we elected him anyway. i started writing the book and it just flowed. started writing virtues. i was trying to think the core principles. and i got through the basis of the core agenda, that we needed to get back to. and then i realized the reason it was moving so fast, was because of president barak obama. he has brought us so far left, there was so many things to write about. how many times you can fall down and pick yourself back up. and, ten years, you're taught if you fall down, government will take care of you. if you lose your job, give you
more time and food stamps. and food and, 50% increase, under president barak obama alone. so these things kept writing themselves. at the end of writing, they said who do you want to death indicate the book to. i wrote out to my beautiful wife, and she's number one. and then i went through family, and people in my life. mark fisher. so i said i'm going dedicate this book to president barak obama because he's the reason it was so easy to write. i think, it is doing so well. [applause] >> you can see som names, i sent this book to some of the most important people i think, in my
life who have taught me about republic, bill o'reillyly, first. i like hosting his show. [laughter] >> sean hannity. i host it tonight after tonight there's a big special, about the clinton scandals. it's going to be fantastic. donald trump, i sent it to him and i have known him for many years, i'm a fan of donalds, and i sent the book to him and sent me back a book, and i was philadelphia to put it up, mark cuban, now a lot of people think he may not be conservative. hillary clinton said she talked to him about a potential vice-president, and said no. he's a great guy.
what a great success story. and, mark levin. and one of the most conservative people. those are the people that, wrote quotes for me. i'm almost done, i'm reading reg this and i say i have to start and end with something. and a couple of friends of mine got together and let's -- happened to be finishing watching a episode of the "walking dead." start with a beginning. so we start with hillary clinton raising her hand as president clinton, al gore, is the secretary of energy and, al sharpton, secretary of education and bernie sanders, the social list is the senior economic adviser. and i paint this beginning and i
end it, it doesn't have to be this way. so you can go o. i think it grips you. and then i felt this was too ridiculous and then i looked back, and i realized where we were then, and how far left we've gone. and no it's into the ridiculous. so it's a warning and it's always roadmap. right now you won't get the supreme court back and federal judges and obamacare and affirmative action and the second amendment and immigration, it's a very, very important time in our history. that's why i believe it came out at the right time. i want to thank everyone for coming out. and book review has been fantastic. last night, we took an amtrak train to philadelphia.
of course it's an amtrak, government runs it, so we were 40 minutes late. >> we were on time here. great crowd and i realized, people are passionate about bringing the country back. it's an unheard voice of the last decade. it's time and it came out at the right time and i'm thrilled you came out to celebrate the book with me. so, let's bring it up, and open up some questions. yes, sir. >> give these guys a chance. >> the first thing that i would like to ask you about, what's your opinion regarding the far right and the ultra conservatives and how they're really just not getting behind
the republican agenda, as in donald trump? and, they're just not getting it, that, if they don't, we're looking at that doomsday scenario, that i address. >> so, let me agree with you and disagree with you. i think you're spot saying unless you ignite the republican party it's hillary clinton. so you can't have paul ryan and mitt romney and george will, and, bill crystal saying that, i will disagree with you, in calling them the far right. they're almost liberal. they're rhinos. i get in trouble, he's a republican. so, you're right. we need to get them on board. otherwise, it will be mrs. clinton.
>> everyone has to say ask a question. it's the rule. >> sir. >> i was shocked when i saw you here. >> that was taped on wednesday, and i thought she was going air it on wednesday. and friday. and i'm on the train and you're on greta. >> -- i love george bush but he was wrong when he said certain things about a certain religion again and he didn't veto any spending bills. if trump gets elected the republicans can't stand up against obama, my concern is, i think either president will be fine, trump better, but the real problem is getting good republicans who will stand up for the principles, and do, when they say something, i'm a ted cruz fan -- i vote -- see, i
don't buy that. your vote has to count. >> my vote is going to tell republicans after four years -- >> that's the mentality that i think is scaring me base -- i still think if you believe, you're an independent. >> i really, i can't ever i cast my vote to -- >> for the delegates to go in december. if hillary clinton is indicted, in december, the delegates will have to make a decision. do they want to vote for hillary clinton -- >> you really want another democrat?
>> i'm trying figure out. >> i hope trump wins. >> lep me out. who do you want to be the president. >> i want ted cruise. >> barring ad cruise -- trump. >> so vote for him. we can add the total vote to the trump, even though new york state doesn't go red. >> gate popular vote to the guy you want to be president. >> i hear it, it could. >> mitt romney got descroiferred, in 2012. i would say that, almost all, if not every state that he won, put it in the red column,. >> you have to have florida and ohio and you have to. and pennsylvania or michigan. >> they are tied.
>> bra, went to a fund-raiser september 12th if you don't know what was going on and didn't have it in your pocket you don't deserve to be president because i labeled him now with it aggravates me he is compounding the party because of the alternative that is unbelievably bad. so where is the budget -- the bushes in those that should be supporting the party because there's more than just this election with
those aftereffects. >> i just outlined those with the supreme court but country will be vastly different for decades but where they? somebody told me a washington insider if donald trump wins within 100 days he will move 9,000 people will have to leave washington d.c.. by the end of the first year , 35,000 will have to be replaced. du understand why these career politicians representative never done anything but get a paycheck from the government would rather lose and keep their careers in tact to win another day. they truly cared about the country and the conservative values. they would support donald trump and and speak at the
convention but they are not. hopefully they come around. >> why not quite. >> there republican in name only. but the infrastructure of money and power. so that they would rather the countries suffer so they have lull liberal upbringing to influence k. street lobby there are millions of dollars that go through k. st. into the politician's pocket said they will be removed. that is their money line. muddied the gay congressmen can spend 60 years in congress?
now they make 174,000. maybe 75,000? in to do that with salary. nobody knows about it. and the influence peddling. >> my husband and i watch you all the time. we are from right here. we listen as much as we can. that is what we can do to keep the train from going off the track? we love this country with
trump's speaks their language. [applause] [inaudible] q outlined the introduction. >> that is what looks like with hillary clinton but with of local republican party to say volunteer. but if you are on twitter or face book? >> so you can talk about that. fifty people heard your point of the baby will start something with somebody else.
to say i don't like this. broccoli, was elected based on social media and figure that out early. people make fun of him for being non twitter of lot progress he is speaking he was awed twitter more people heard donald trump tweet they and zero bob the speech. -- zero bob months speech. >> get it out there put out it goes a lot of places. >> look at that. >> which showed you like better on your show on fox and why? might that would come from my executive producer would it? by the way where were you
this week? see how that works? he comes in on vacation. this is where the brand wake up america was born and then to close out with a nice bunch. and to put that monologue up front with those ideas for the show. and then that and said being 22 minutes of showtime. and that is before you move on to the rest of your day so if there is a recent that most of them are pushing back on the liberal left.
and just grew and grew. people had shag wake up america all over the place. ended the since. have been beating him to change the name for years wake up america. pc is on vacation this week. [laughter] >> if the republican party is such a conservative, i must be far right? i think the problem is getting the republican party over to separate movement. so many have been tossed, so
i think the establishment establishment, there is the word, the establishment republicans is what i call the republican in name only that i get in trouble. bantu totally i have been told by producers to be chinese say that you tick off the audience a sure you want to do that? yes. saw - - still makes some of his interviews in the '80s he was thoughtful and called indispensable so the same today and he is a real patriot i admire him for that. but talk about ted cruiser want people to know as a two-party person i want to
get those extra blades from his points of the '80s not to call them a liar but that is a turnoff and that is not becoming even now. >> to es and it is unbecoming to recuse portion of the population. if you talk about pushing back the culture what you can say and how you say that. screw it pirko say what you want. don't be embarrassed. with those fate -- on college campuses. we have a son going away to college in the couple of
thought this is a lot of people did not like me in a way that was more aggressive . >> get with him as vice president would be an unbelievable ticket. >> so why would you reproached to yet -- ted crews now you have those constitutional conservative i have ever known in into a probably get a lot of votes from the cruise people let me get those in the back. >> some of us countries in
is in europe in poland your laundry through to say edf is enough. >> a thing perhaps it was a brilliant vote. that was 100 percent immigration and the biggest provider of funds. marinade net contributor. tens of billions of dollars. so there is some of that in there but they talk about this and the reason why they
do is because of the immigration idea. it is a nationalistic view. it is resonating because he came down the escalator the first thing he said i will build a wall on the southern border to make mexico pay for it. everybody said what? but he will do that this nationalism anti-eight illegal immigration nationalistic view of the world. and then it went to the europeans to come back in november. [inaudible] clean will vote tromp as many times as possible.
not wirth said a thing worth listening to any more. >> i agree. blend of the most influential people he may not talk to me for a while but we're all coming from the same place. but i hope i never hosting o'reilly. can even more despicable but something like bill kristol i think they do more damage mandate politician. >> what can people like me
do or people my age that is in college to preserve the republican movement? to send them in the mail after the shooting tuesday richet be appeasing ken so what can we do to push through? [inaudible] qsr 100 percent right. >> my son comes back indoctrinated. that is what it is like. to continue with the social media campaign. and line not due college republican?
if you have to meet off-campus? thought. >> some colleges say you can. >> some say it is offensive. >> if you get a book bring it to school and leave it in the faculty lounge. [laughter] civic maybe they will. >> we watch fox over dinner with my son. and we discussed this with them regularly with the liberalism that he had gotten in high-school. but what is frank views are the have prompted him to
decide that there is so much frustration with the censorship and the political correctness. the sense of helplessness. these kids are frayed to do express conservative viewpoints and it is despicable and helpless in the country because of the establishment and it is it helping to lead down the conservative path. >> so the book came out a couple weeks ago. about one weeks later they decided the valedictorians are no longer except a bowl.
so politics has become liberal face a did ministrations that has always been leaning liberal. in now which trickles into the academic life. is a freight train to put this line to supply of the lawn with uh twitter account. if i am not suggesting you get in an argument with your professor over liberal or conservative added said death wish adjust to tone it down in the classroom to understand ridley come from. >> so many educated people
boomers who have been indoctrinated all their lives with somebody like hillary or a democrat. >> i am doing a special. it is amazing. and those to rest judicial watch with these corruption issues and then running a high profile that exposes corruption it goes on and on bill whole list in there so many clinton scandals we cannot cover them all in one hour so i wonder what is it? i have no clue. i do not understand laugh laugh i can't take into you what is wrong and how to fight it but who knows? no idea. white quakes is scarcely is
but you never know but giving up is not in option there's a lot of money for women run businesses to set your identifying as a female [laughter] kidding. but kind that. i just want to get everybody in here. >> i will go in a different direction is a possible to hold prochoice belief to call yourself conservative and quick. >> i don't tell people what to but i will tell you but it is providence i good church every single day of my life?
so we go six days a week for my future and my success but i will not tell you what to do. this may take off some people so i minnesota the camp do what you want with your body. bill libertarian thought was an interesting concept for a while that they would bring in more young people it is not as cut and dry. but i like the core values and that is what i stick to hear. >> one more. somebody who has not gone yet. [inaudible] ina she huge fox news and i watch all the time but there
could be a legal reason that i never hear anyone talk about the possibility to the president being impeached? civic the ship had sailed. >> now he just bides his time. [inaudible] but it has spent 80 years. >> to larry clinton will be impeached before she gets sworn in that would be fun. >> you all fox people? the five? o rightly? cashing in? >> thank-you so much.
