Host: Good evening, Rachel.
Host Rachel Cherry: I was wondering how long he would have done that in his life.
Ask him one thing.
OLBERMANN: I guess it's about 1,000 today. MADDOW: Well—
Thanks a lot to Keith.
I appreciate it.
By the way, you know what that is. Good night.
MADDOW: That's good night.
Thank you for staying with us for the next hour.
We will have a big performance.
It turns out that some people are willing to stay up late if they need to work, while others are unwilling. (Start Video)(MUSIC)MADDOW (voice-over)
Republicans are tough on financial reform.
They stand together.
They adhere to principles.
They will never give in.
Unless they are threatened by long television working days, they will have to vote again and again against Wall Street reform. (

Majority leaders: they have been delaying, they have been delaying.
They seem to care more about the fat cats on Wall Street than the ones who are not soft. (END VIDEO CLIP)
MADDOW: California senator Barbara Bokser spoke about how the threat from the akapito mountain sleep party has made Wall Street rules more likely to be reformed.
Many people think that Arizona's new "please read the newspaper" law is a very bad idea.
But not everyone thinks so.
Racial discrimination finally caught up with pro-conservatives.
Racial discrimination.
When some people do this, this is the so-called minority expansion.
But when others do it, it's dealing with race cards.
Double standard, to arouse racial resentment for political interests.
Tonight's "interview" is Tim Kane, chairman of the Democratic National Committee of Virginia, who talked about the democratic election plan for the November election.
The great state of orclach decided to compete with Virginia and Arizona because they put the biggest exclamation mark behind the civil rights.
The "legalised" crowd has fallen victim to Republican voter registration fraud in California. Dude!
They're also trying to find a way to blame this on the ACORN?
Rachel Mado show
There are now 100% kinds of snacks that are hungry and uncontrollable.
I have a snuggle. What about it?
Don't be a nuisance.
I also have a hot pocket.
It's good to go for my late night snack.
Wait a minute.
So the US Senate should have voted overnight tonight.
All day today, Senate Democrats have threatened to hold a constant vote all night to push Wall Street reform forward.
Republicans have blocked Wall Street reform for three consecutive days.
Everything will come tonight-
Vote all night, a sleeping party in the Senate. Woohoo!
Today, an assistant senior Democratic leadership told Huffington Post, "We are launching baby cots.
"Oh, that will be delicious. Hold on.
I will find you later.
I have to get my crib. Hold on.
We are going to roll out the crib. There we are.
We also decided to launch the crib-
Frankly, though, if I had air conditioning, I would have pushed out the air mattress. Come on. It‘s the 2000s.
But that's not what they said.
They always said we were going to roll out the crib.
So we're all ready.
We even advance.
We ordered pizza in the middle of the night.
I'm leaving all night.
It's finally going to happen.
What Democrats are promising is an overnight vote on Wall Street, forcing Republicans to stay up late and forcing them to sleep in the Senate if they want to continue to block the proceedings.
They can eat Hot Pockets.
They wear whatever they want and look good at what they wear, but they have to stay at work all night.
As it turns out, this-the cot thing—
This is for sure-
Fire exits to do things in Washington.
Threatened to launch the crib.
Democrats have recently threatened to launch baby cots.
At, when Jim Bunning was busy solving unemployment benefits, it rolled out the crib.
We have to stay all night.
Jim Bunning said he would continue to block and there was nothing to stop him unless she wanted the three amendments to get votes.
But after Democrats threatened to launch the crib, Senator Bonning gave in.
He voted to pass only one amendment but failed.
Then everyone went home.
So, this is the task, Scott.
Now, we put away the crib.
Thank you very much, Kent. Appreciate it.
A few weeks later, Republicans blocked health care reform.
They threatened to propose amendments to prevent sexual offenders from taking Viagra after the amendment.
Do you remember that? The voterama?
Democrats decided to pull a whole in the fight for health care reform by saying they would-
Overnight in the Senate.
So this is the threat.
Baby cots are available.
We're staying here all night. Roll them out.
The vote did start late at night.
Republicans tried to use the car for a whole night, but they didn't have the stamina.
They finally threw themselves in at about 3: 00. m. They gave up.
The task is complete, the magic crib.
Now put away the crib.
Earlier this month, Harry Reid threatened
This time it was Republicans who blocked President Obama's judicial nomination and made the Senate day and night.
He's threatening again.
Baby cots are available.
We're staying here all night.
Harry Reid has asked President Obama to nominate 22 candidatesor-
Don't vote, otherwise we will have a meeting all day.
Now, this is a mutual cave as the crib approaches.
Democrats do agree to give up some of the nominees, but not all 22 are like they want.
Therefore, in this case, the task is partially completed. Cot—
But now we can put away the crib.
It happened again today.
Democrats are threatening to hold
Wall Street reform night.
Last night, when we spoke to Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown ofOhio, we had a slight initial indication of the war, and then Senator Claire McCaskill was on msnbc today. (

Ohio: we may be staying all night tomorrow night and continue to do so until we break some free time. SEN.
Claire McCaskill (D)
I think we're going all night.
I think we 've made the decision that it's important enough that we're going to sleep all night and keep asking Republicans to allow us to debate this bill. (End Video Clip)
This is what happened.
This afternoon, after a third direct debate on Wall Street reform, Democrats threatened to start the debate. (
Start Video Editing)SEN. BEN CARDIN (D)
Why don't we work here?
We will stay here to do the work.
Wall Street reform is so important.
So we have to stay here.
If Republicans block it, the American people will see them block it. (END VIDEO CLIP)
MADDOW: vote all night.
You know what that means.
We have to stay here all night.
Of course, just like the clock works, like the Magic, cotthreat works again.
Republicans are threatening to launch baby cots.
They removed the obstruction of Wall Street reform.
There was no vote this time.
After three days of obstruction, Republicans allowed Wall Street reform to move forward tonight.
The task is completed again. So bye-bye, cot.
I am sure we will welcome you back soon. Sorry.
It makes you tired, Kent.
This is about the launch of the cots threat, the launch of the cots strategy. It‘s magic.
Obviously it always works.
This time it was the makeRepublicans cave, and like every time they did, anyone threatened the horrible crib.
But what happened today does not mean that Wall Street reform has failed.
That means the debate on Wall Street reform can move forward.
But, in the end, the debate will have to end and a final vote must be made on the bill.
Republicans will still block the proceedings.
If doughnuts win and Republicans miraculously give up the obstruction, you know.
Only 51 tickets, not 60 tickets, are required through Wall streetform.
If it's 60 votes, Republicans are still blocking it.
In that incident
Democrats may have to continue using the only effective weapon we know.
Because you know we have cribs, we have chocolates, we have hot pockets and pizza will never be better than 3: 00 in the morning.
Now we are joined by California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer.
Senator Boxer, thank you for taking the time out of this busy night.
You are always here when we perform the stupidest stunts on the show, and I apologize for that. (LAUGHTER)SEN. BARBARA BOXER (D)
California: very interesting.
This is your life, Barbara Bokser.
I think we have a lot of Arsenal and I think the most important thing is that we have good ideas and good legislation.
But if we need some good crib and it works I am with this project.
MADDOW: a few hours ago you showed all the titles on the floor from what
When the economic collapse occurs, it basically reminds people of the seriousness of what Wall Street reform is trying to remedy.
In your opinion, is this legislation strong enough, as it is written, to prevent the occurrence of another crash?
BOXER: This legislation is very, very good.
I think we can strengthen it, which is why I am excited to learn that colleagues are retreating from the cliff and they will let us go.
But I will make changes.
The first amendment that I am going to propose, and I know Senator Dodd sayis did this --
It's a very good news to say in plain and clear language, "taxpayer, you're out of the woods.
We will never see this rescue again.
"And, you know, the only time we 've been involved is getting a company out of business, and those costs have to be paid by Wall Street itself. So that‘s good.
I'm going to look at these rating agencies, you know. They—
Moody's Standard & Poor's-
They rated these junk securities, these toxic instruments, and, you know, they were very toxic when they didn't.
There must be some responsibility there.
So, I'm looking at the amendments there.
But Bernie Sanders will have an amendment to audit the Fed.
I want to support that.
A very important Volcker rule for President Obama.
That's what Jeff Merck said.
I will support it.
So, the answer is: this is a very powerful bill.
We can make it better.
MADDOW: Republicans suggest-
I have been trying to stop the debate in the Senate, basically saying that they want the negotiations to continue outside the Senate.
But all the amendments that you just described there, you will not only provide, but will support, which means that the process is really not over, and the bill will continue to be adjusted and amended in the Senate.
So why do Republicans have so much resistance to allowing this debate to begin?
Obviously, you have to ask the Republicans.
But in my life I couldn't understand their reasoning because they said the bill wasn't strong enough and we said, well, let's get busy and make it stronger.
Now, I look forward to their amendment.
But for some reason they chose not to amend it in the Commission.
So they did not modify
They did not revise it entirely in accordance with the Commission's procedures.
They don't want to start.
They want to have some behind-the-scenes discussions.
I think it's right that they finally give in because people understand that.
This is not a very complicated thing.
Maybe the financial system is really complicated, but the basic idea of ensuring that consumers are protected and taxpayers are protected is that in this crazy speculative and dark market, no one understands what derivatives are doing, or credit default swaps --
These will be completely transparent.
So, they did the right thing.
I mean, I don't know if it's cot if it's crib, then, hooray.
But, you know, hopefully they really don't think this Booth works.
The American people want us to do so. It‘s—
Whether they are Democrats, Republicans or independents, we must stop this crisis.
The reason I brought these old titles is that as the stock market collapsed, people's net assets fell by 30%, 40%, 50%, lost 700,000 jobs a month, the real estate market in crisis.
All because of this massive massacre.
No consumer watchdog is an important part of Dodd's bill.
Senator Barbara Boxer of California Thank you for your invitation.
I'm glad you don't have to stay up all night.
Oh, you're not alone. (LAUGHTER)
Thank you, madam.
I really appreciate it. BOXER: OK. MADDOW: OK.
So who is the only one who can understand the new Immigration Act in Arizona?
Who is that man?
Sarah Palin says there is no ability or opportunity for racial profiling in the "newspaper invitation" act.
No ability, no chance.
I was wondering if she had proof of citizenship when she said that.
Race politics on the front line
No one knows this better than Tim Kane, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, who has just been accused by Republicans of racial discrimination. baiting today.
Chairman Kane joined us in the interview ".
Did anyone order pizza?
Oh, God, yes.
Do you still want this?

Can we continue?
Man: Yes. Yes. (

MADDOW: last week, we tried our best to explain the payday lenders, who they were and who they were. Who they—
What they do, who they are. Excuse me.
Payday lenders are basically usury with good storefronts.
They focus on turning what looks like a short term loan into a one-time loan rolling every two weeks, and they charge a lot of money before they finally charge an annual rate of 400%.
Allan Jones, the payday loan King, argued that his business was poor.
Payday lenders make so little money that they can't afford the loan sharing restrictions regulated under the new Wall Street reform act.
Lest you think it is very embarrassing for someone like Alan Jones to defend poverty, and he also boasts of having a complete
Alan Jones and payday lenders apparently convinced Republicans to have him host a private college football game in his own estate.
The Democratic Party's proposed financial reform bill includes a consumer financial protection agency that will regulate payday lenders.
A new Republican alternative to the Democratic bill will make payday lenders, on the other hand, look like they are --
Completely unregulated by the federal government.
Interest loans that cost people free of charge.
On page 8 of the Republican bill's summary, Republicans describe their consumer financial protection consul, which makes payday loans like Alan Jones as unregulated as they are now. It‘s spelled U-S-U-R-Y, usury.
It's in the dictionary.
In fact, it is also in the Bible. (
Business break)MADDOW: a new one
In Arizona, minted law assumes that everyone is illegal unless you can prove it is illegal.
The law forces law enforcement officers to stop anyone they reasonably suspect might be illegal immigrants from asking to see documents proving that the person was actually legal in the country.
We have always called it the "newspaper please" method.
It raised the threat of protests and resistance.
We will have more programs.
This has also caused controversy on the coast.
So it's not surprising that the former vice presidential candidate, plus half-
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been asked to weigh the matter.
Governor Palin said asking the police to stop criminal acts that look like illegal immigrants would not lead to racial discrimination. (

Palin®Former Alaska governor: there is no ability or opportunity for racial profiling.
And lame shame
Streaming again turns this into something it's not.
I also think it is shameful that the Obama administration allows this to be a racial issue because it continues the myth that racial profiling is part of this law. (END VIDEO CLIP)
MADDOW: Racial profiling is part of the myth of this law.
OK, let's debunk the myth of racial profiling with the help of Brewer onagovernor on January, and Brewer onagovernor signed the "please file" bill as law on Friday.
Not through racial discrimination.
If it is not through racial discrimination, how should the police determine if someone is like an illegal immigrant?
How should the police reasonably suspect that a person is an illegal immigrant?
What should the police pay attention?
This is what happened on Friday when Governor Brewer faced the problem.
And the opportunity to break the myth of racial profiling. (

Reporter: What is illegal immigration like?
Does it look like me? GOV.
Brewer, January®Arizona: I don't know.
I don't know what illegal immigration looks like.
I can tell you that I think some people in Arizona think they know what illegal immigration looks like. (END VIDEO CLIP)
This is the fundamental issue of Arizona law.
Its supporters insist that the reason why people are blocked and forced to present their newspapers is not a race problem.
They insist that this is not a racial appearance or a reason for the police to stop people.
But they can't say what the reason is for the police to stop people.
What makes Arizona's insistence on non-racial discrimination even more complicated is that many people who insist on doing so favor racial discrimination.
They admit-out loud. (

So when Governor Palin insists that Arizona is not going to do side writing right now, remember that she said she was doing it for side writing.
Not just Salah Palin.

Britt Hume, Fox News: going on in such a way is a huge inconvenience to the economy, maybe even a deterrent, older women and children were searched and searched like others, and when no one imagined that such a person would be a bomb on a plane, no one really imagined that there would be so many blonde blue --

On the right, racial profiling is quite popular.
Look at this other argument that supports racial profiling.
Actually, this is important.

Scott McKinney®Colorado: I 've seen that recently I 've been very disappointed and frustrated with some people playing game cards and analyzing.
Oh, how do you set up your profile?
What kind of profile am I talking about?
For example, I think the ethnic background is a legitimate opponent of it?
This is a huge mistake.
We have made a huge mistake of allowing some very select people to put political pressure and make any commitment that we do not allow to consider the ethnic background.
Once you start using racial analysis as a component of the build profile, this is one of several components, which I think is very legitimate.
I think it's smart. (END VIDEO CLIP)
MADDOW: The man accused people of playing racial cards against racial profiling, and in his words, he thought it was smart to use racial profiling, and he might just be the next governor of Colorado.
As a friend of the show, David silotta pointed out in Colorado today that for the racial profiling former Congressman Scott mackinnes, he has got rid of the beard, is considered to be the leader in the Republican nomination of Colorado governor.
Today, Scott McKinney said he is eager to follow Arizona's footsteps if he is elected governor. (

I will tell you the situation.
The federal government refused to act, and in the end, some of the governors stood up and said, we stopped withdrawing.
No more retreat. (END AUDIO CLIP)
Scott McKinney, uh
As we all know, there is a good chance that respected top mainstream candidates will become the next governor of Colorado, and now, after a record of the enthusiasm that has stopped you, promises will launch a sequel to Arizona's "papersplease" law that will allow you to be subject to law enforcement scrutiny depending on your race.
If those who give us these guarantees are less enthusiastic about race-targeted law enforcement, then it would be easier to believe that all those who say Arizona's new law is not race-targeted. (

Tim Kane, chairman of the Democratic National Committee and former Virginia governor, is joining us now. Gov.
Kane, I'm glad you came back for the show.
Thank you for coming. FMR. GOV. TIM KAINE (D-VA)
Chairman of the Democratic National Committee: Thank you Rachel. You bet.
Great to be with you.
MADDOW: What's your response to the allegations that Democrats are encouraging minority voters to vote in the next election is racist?
Kane: The allegations are ridiculous and Republicans are trying to change the subject.
Rachel, we have launched a medium-term plan that basically sends a very clear message to both parties.
The Democratic Party is the result party.
We are doing a lot of work for economic recovery, health care reform and Wall Street reform.
Republicans are blocking the party from moving forward.
Very simple message, but what the Republicans want to do is the idea of race.
Because they don't want to talk about it, are you working for the results, or are you trying to help Americans?
Or do you want to throw smoke?
They are good at Smoke.
MADDOW: Well, the National Republican Congressional Committee and theRNC are all paying special attention to you today because the Wall Street Journal printed it today as a high-level text of your speech.
They said, quote.
They blame you for this sentence, "We know that Republicans are still trying to suppress the vote and initiate arbitration challenges, especially for minority and low-income groups. income voters.
"They are doing this to hunt you down for race cards.
Is this part of your speech?
What do you mean?
What do you think of the charge?
Kane: this is a pre-prepared comment we sent to some journalists.
You know, a lot of people watching the show, Rachel may not know that RNC is currently under the federal court's consent order because past activities have misled minorities and lowincome voters.
They have recently made an effort to be free from the consent decree, but this effort has not been successful because the court has concluded that we still need to be highly vigilant about these practices.
As you pointed out two days ago, this is the same RNC, it sends misleading information, and I believe that illegal mail misrepresents the mail as an official census document, which is not the case.
So we don't wait until election day and then find information that misleads our constituents.
On the contrary, we will vigorously protect the right of people to participate.
We all want more people to be involved, not less, and participation is a real sign of what we are trying to do in the election.
MADDOW: as the president condemns, as the United States continues to debate this Arizona immigration law, and as Washington continues to chatter, we may be moving towards full immigration legislation this year into November, how do you foresee the intersection and interweaving of race and problems?
Obviously, we see that Republicans and conservatives are very keen to participate in race issues, even where you don't want them to raise race issues. KAINE: Right.
Well, you know, they might make that kind of effort, but let's be frank.
Immigration is a very, very difficult problem.
This is a huge problem that needs to be solved in the long term.
If a small percentage of the Republican senators who supported immigration reform three years ago, along with Democratic senators, we can get immigration reform bills through the Senate and the house.
At least one Republican senator Sen of the Senate.
Lindsay Graham is still working on this, which is commendable.
But we need only a few Republican senators who are willing to solve this problem, and we can make progress.
So the question is-
Will they do this or are they just a scratch stopper who really seem to like coming here in the past year and a half.
That is to say, Sen.
After Graham wrote a work
Last month, Democratic Senator Charles Schumer put forward his own bipartisan plan, which has long supported the idea of immigration reform, and now says he doesn't want it to be resolved soon.
He hopes to postpone until 2012.
I would like to know if you have seen a strategic issue in the legislation that really coincides with politics.
Will Democrats try to do this as much as they can before November to run on this issue as Republicans try to slow everything down?
Kane: Rachel, I think the answer is yes.
We will try to do just as much, because, you know, I think people want to be the ruling party and break the deadlock in Washington, where special interest groups are preventing things from being done.
When I travel across the country, I think the main criticism of Washington is that you can't take meaningful action because special interest groups have basically blocked this place.
So we're trying to take a big step forward with this president and Congress in terms of economic recovery, reforming student loans, and reforming the health care system.
Now, I think we are about to make a big victory in Wall Street reform.
We will get things done.
You know, I hope it's good politics, but we'll mainly do things right because the American people want you to do that when you're in the office.
They want you to take the oath of office seriously and come here to work, not just play political games and try to stop everything you can do.
Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, governor.
Mr. TimKaine, thank you very much for coming tonight.

MADDOW: last week, an underwater well explosion on an offshore rig operated by BP caused a serious environmental disaster, which has so far become more and more serious.
So far, efforts to stop the flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico at a rate of 42,000 gallons per day have failed.
Therefore, efforts should also be made to curb the expanding oil slick spreading on the surface of the water.
The oil slick is now 100 miles and 45 miles, roughly the size of Ohio.
In addition to the damage that has been done, the fear now is that the ocean hits the coast and then covers wildlife and coastline.
So far, oil is about 20 miles closest to the coast.
If the oil reaches where it is expected to arrive in two or three days, it will be very bad.
Remember Exxon-

Thousands of Alaska volunteers to scrub birds, sea otters and seals? Yes.
To not be Exxon-

The oil must be collected so that the smooth oil is thick enough to ignite successfully.
If the oil is too thin, the fire will go out.
Of course, there are concerns about the health of the big oil fires, but the official statement is that the smoke will not reach the land.
The Environmental Protection Agency and the Mississippi environmental quality department are monitoring air quality around Burns.
These very reasonable health issues aside, burns are not even guaranteed to work.
Some estimate that only 50% will burn.
The rest after burning is worse than the original oil slick because it will be thicker and harder to clean up. But don't worry.
The news in this regard is not all bad news.
Oil prices are rising, which means profits are rising sharply for oil companies.
In addition, the Democratic president has not given up the decision to end decades --

They did a terrible job, and secondly, I think it's just racism. (END VIDEO CLIP)
MADDOW: Sheriff Dupnik says he can't and won't enforce the new law, and of course, the new law requires you to carry your people at any time to prove your rights in this country.
You can be arrested and Putin jailed for not being able to prove that you are not an illegal immigrant.
As you know, pimakuti includes Tucson, Arizona's second. largest city.
Finally, in protest against the fear of anti-corruption in Arizona
Immigration laws, people, cities and organizations have called for a boycott of the state, including the Arizona iced tea.
Arizona is in the title.
It's easy to target, right?
Alas, as noted in today's New York Daily News, Ariza iced tea, although its name is the New York company.
So, in order to prevent any additional unexpected goals, if you choose to protest in this way, we list things that you can patronize without violating any boycott provisions.
For example, you can still watch the movie raise Arizona.
"The producers of the film, not the country, have the rest.
You may also see the phoenix tattoo.
If you resist because of the new law, you may not be able to support the Sun basketball team.
The real sun, the Sun itself
The game is fair.
There is also a very nice cocktail called rattlesnake.
It's also very free there.
We're here to help. (

MADDOW: those who say you want the government to leave your life --
Not only does the government want to enter your life, but it also wants to put your body aside against your will, state-
Authorized invasive medical procedures, you have no right to refuse.
Rejected by the Democratic governor, the Republican Party overthrew the veto in the name of conservatives in the state Assembly.
Pre-definition of conservatism
Small government and individual freedom.
I don't know how they define it now. That‘s next. (

From 10: 42 in the morning. m.
Yesterday in central time, any woman seeking an abortion in the great state of orklahe must now undergo invasive medical procedures at least an hour before an abortion or preparation for an abortion.
Regardless of the medical needs, the state of okhara now has a mandate, and every woman seeking a legal medical procedure must also be forced to undergo an ultrasound, if this will provide the original image of the fetus, the state ordered her doctor to insert an ultrasound probe into the vagina.
This is not the doctor's choice.
This is authorized by the state.
Women seeking abortion cannot say no, nor can doctors say no.
Ultrasound images must now be shown where women can view when they undergo surgery.
If the lady wishes, the lawmaker of the Russian clarma will allow her to avoid her sight.
This is oklaoma's definition of choice.
Now, if you can't win the constitutional argument and you have to allow some women to have an abortion at some point because of that damn constitution, you can at least make it mean, physical trauma and emotional trauma, right?
Now we are joined by Anita Frum, head of the family planning center. Ms.
Frem, thank you so much for coming tonight.
Thank you for your time.
Anita Frum, CEO of family planning in downtown orrama: Thank you very much for inviting me.
The Thunder legislature easily overthrew the government.
Henry vetoed the measure.
Is there any political power behind stopping it all?
Is the governor almost himself?
FREAM: Some people have been working with the governor to try to support these efforts.
I have to say, though, that we seem to be a minority.
MADDOW: There are two other bills under consideration in oklaoma, and I know that one of them would force women to fill out a very detailed questionnaire on why they had an abortion. FREAM: Right.
MADDOW: it will post some information online.
Another would limit the coverage of abortion.
What do you think is the prospect of these bills?
FREAM: I don't see much hope of stopping them.
I think the prospect may be good.
Earlier this evening, I spoke to the Centre for Reproductive Rights about the possibility of increased litigation.
This is still a possibility.
We just don't know at this point.
They do say that there are many constitutional issues with the reporting requirements Act.
MADDOW: of course, the same organization is suing the measures that the legislature has just passed about the governor's veto.
Assume that insurance cannot pay for the passage of the Abortion Act.
What do you think will ultimately have an impact on women in Homer?
I think it will have the same impact.
This is the goal behind many of these laws, just to make it more and more difficult for people to get what is called basic rights.
Making abortion more and more difficult.
Put more stumps on the road.
Make it more expensive.
To make the doctor less willing to do this operation.
MADDOW: Is that how you feel as the CEO of the family planning center?
Do you feel that the effect of these laws is actually to make abortion so difficult that even if the constitution still nominally protects it, abortion is functionally illegal?
FREAM: I do think that's the effect and that's the ultimate goal.
This is not a secret.
This is a strategy for public talk.
MADDOW: how many abortion providers are still operating in Homer?
I think, in this environment, what is the morale of these health care providers now?
I think there are about three.
I might be missing one in there. Morale varies.
We have a good relationship with our local suppliers and they are a great person.
But, you know, it's hard.
Whenever these new laws are introduced, it is difficult to provide procedures to make their laws more risky and to limit what kind of medical decisions they can make, something I think no doctor is willing to deal.
MADDOW: In the case of the Thunder, in the broader context of the country's right to abortion being compromised, many people who support abortion
Choice is looking at what has happened recently in orkama, in the state of NEAs, and some other states that have considered very restrictive measures.
There seems to be a series of such incidents recently.
They are wondering if state aid, national health will talk openly about these problems or injuries, and whether the people that the state solves these problems are like carpets to you guys at this point, Pro
The choice in Homer wants help from the country.
FREAM: definitely need the help of the country here.
No matter where they come from, we need everyone to say it out loud.
I know what you mean by the question of carpetbagger.
I think this may be an issue of The Times.
But we need a worse voice.
We need someone to say it.
Mado: Anita Frum, the CEO of family planning in downtown orrama.
Thank you very much for your time tonight.
I really appreciate your insight.
Fran: Thank you.
MADDOW: Tonight, Keith's special guest is the Arizona sheriff who refused to implement the new immigration law in the state.
But first, on the show, the Republican voter registration strategy is aimed at people who want to legalize marijuana.
They messed up the wrong people. That‘s next. (

MADDOW: Let's take a look at Mr. Kent Jones. Hi, Kent.
Kent Jones, MSNBC Reporter: Hi, Rachel.
Do you remember that fundraising letter designed to be a 2010 census form? Oh, yes. Yes. JONES: Right?
The Republican Party is making a new documentary. Check it out. MADDOW: OK.
Jones: It is reported that in Orange County, California, petitioners are asked to engage people and ask them to sign for other reasons for the legalization of marijuana.
Some people think, "is marijuana legalized? sure, dude. Where do I sign?
Put the pen down.
Stay away from the clipboard.
Their signature actually means those jars.
Support California to sign up for the Republican Party.
People move from relaxing marijuana laws to joining John Boehner. Whiplash.
According to the "Orange County Register", since then, voters have filed 99 written complaints and they say they have been on the Republican list without their consent.
The "register" reported that the signature collector lied and misrepresented himself, and some even pretended to be collecting the signatures of the class items.
What class is that?
Voter fraud profile?
The California Public party created a problem by offering a $8 bonus for each new registration. Voila. Beer money.
This is a warning.
The next time someone asks you to sign here to save the cute kitten, or nominate something like summer as the official "feel good season" in the US, read every word and ask yourself, "Am I helping John Boehner? ”(END VIDEO CLIP)
MADDOW: ACORN, too. JONES: Yes. Yes.
Thank you, Kent. Appreciate it.
This is for tonight.
Keith Olbermann's "Countdown" is now on. Good night.
This is a report card in a hurry.
