Unemployment Benefits Coming to an End for Many

"Cutting off extra federal unemployment benefits, some as soon as next week. Marketplaces Meghan McCarty, Carino looks at the labor market yet to come. It's not just that extra $300 a week in federal unemployment payments, most of these states are ending. It's also benefits for gig workers, freelancers and the long term unemployed. Like Marcellus, Row in Dunwoody, Georgia, where federal benefits will end June 26. I will be receiving nothing. Unfortunately, I have no idea how I'm going to live. Day by day Row, lost his job in a public transportation agency last year and says he hasn't found work to match his previous pay of $16 an hour another. How is just not gonna put it? As economies reopen and the dangers of the virus recede. Michael strain at the American Enterprise Institute says the additional benefits are doing more harm than good. I see a labor market where employers clearly want to hire workers, but there are not enough workers there to be hired. He says Scaling back benefits could incentivize more people to return to work. But Andrew Stettner at the Century Foundation says it's not so simple. We want to believe that we can just turn the lights back on, but that's not really how it works. Industries like tourism and entertainment have been slower to bounce back, and some people face health challenges or child care issues caused by the pandemic that prevent them from finding work. Those the ones on the federal programs, those people that have the greatest barriers to work. Rising vaccination rates might make it feel like we're done with Cove it But he says Covad isn't done with the economy. I'm making McCarty Carino for marketplace on Wall Street today.

The new stimulus isn't likely to take place until march john. Yarmuth is the chairman of the house budget. Committee so congressman. Is you know nine.

"Deborah Burke's White House coronavirus response coordinator. Thus, after months of discord, help from Congress may finally be on the way There is Momenta. There is momentum. Compromise is within reach. But will it be enough? Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia joins me and President Trump holds a rally for the two Republican senators and George's January run off, they cheated and they rigged our presidential election, but we will still win it, focusing more on his own personal grievances. Then in helping the actual candidates. It has to stop. Someone could get hurt. Someone's gonna get shot. Someone's gonna get killed. I'll talk to Georgia elections official Gabriel Sterling. Joining me for insight and analysis. Our NBC News national political correspondent Steve Kornacki Kimberly, acting senior opinion writer for the Boston Globe, Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason and Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute. Welcome to Sunday. It's meet the press. NBC News in Washington, the longest running show in television history. This is Meet the press with Chuck Time. Good Sunday morning. Considered what it's happened over the past week. Hospitalizations in the U. S. For covert 19 exceeded 100,000 for the first time. Daily cases of covert 19 exceeded 200,000 for the first time and the second And the third And the fourth The confirmed daily death toll from Cove in 19 exceeded 2000 for the second time. And the third And the fourth And the fifth And the sixth This past week Cove it was the leading cause of death in America. If only that were the worst of it. Robert Redfield, the head of the Centers for Disease Control, says December January and February will be the most difficult time and the public health history of this nation. I do think. Unfortunately, Before we see February we could be close to foreign 50,000 Americans and died from this virus. Made this exploding crisis President Trump gave what he said was quote may be the most important speech I've ever made. It was not about Cove it it was a 46 minute attack on American democracy. Was filled with the bunk claims false assertions and outright lies, charging that the Democrats rigged the election to steal his presidency that the president has chosen to ignore. The worst health crisis We faced in 100 years almost doesn't matter anymore. What matters is that both the good news, the emergence of multiple vaccines and the bad news. The rising case and death counts are accelerated. But until those vaccines get here, overwork, healthcare workers around the country are fighting a two pronged battle to save lives. More importantly, to convince skeptical Americans to finally take this deadly virus seriously. It's hard to come into work Sundays. Knowing that you're short. And Knowing that you're going to see people. We're tired..

What Happens If The President Is Incapacitated? The 25th Amendment Charts A Course

"Greene. The story we are covering this morning was first revealed in a tweet from President Trump in the middle of the night. He and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the Corona virus. Many people we should say never developed serious symptoms and even if they do they recover, But Trump is 70 for an age group that is more likely to develop serious complications and to be hospitalized. The White House physician says the president is doing well as of now, but will remain in the White House residents. A White House official told NPR's Tamara Keith that the president plans to stay engaged, but that Vice President Mike Pence is ready to step in. As needed. Now, if and when a president falls ill. There are significant questions about how the nation is governed. And John 48 has studied and written about scenarios just like this. He's executive director. Of the continuity of government Commission, which was set up in the wake of the 9 11 attacks. He also runs the government studies program at the bipartisan Policy Center, and he joins us on Skype. Thanks for being here. Mary. Thanks for having me. So I mean, someone who looks at these questions so closely. How did you react when you heard that the president got a positive test? Well, given all that's happened, it was probably the one thing that might stir up some or turmoil in this, this very tumultuous election system season we've had. Look, there are some real questions. Both about a president as president having on illness, especially if it were to get worse but also in terms of a presidential candidate. Those are those are different issues about being on the balance and what happens afterwards. So I do think there are some significant concerns if If things were to worsen. Well, let's separate those things out. Let let's talk about the here and now. I mean, what sort of things are being discussed right now inside the White House and were the president's health to deteriorate. I mean, you've written that there could be confusion there. Khun B. Chaos. I mean, take us inside that building. Well, first, a zoo president, the question would be is the president at some point does he feel that he doesn't isn't able to carry out the duties of the presidency for a time? And there's a pretty clear provisioning the 25th amendment, where he can sign over the power of the presidency to the vice president. And then when recovered, take it back, and that's happened a few times in recent years, basically, for elective surgeries, That would be pretty clear. I think you know what would be a little harder is if the president got sick enough that he wasn't able to make the determination there's still a A vision in the Constitution where you can have the vice president. A majority of the Cabinet say it's time for the vice president to take over and then in the most contentious situation. We have heard about another context that if the president disagreed with that, that Diagnosis. Congress might have to decide whether to keep the president on orto keep the vice president so it could go further down the line. But that would be the more extreme version. Look, we also have The election. And how would President Be on the ballot or not be on the ballot. If it really came to the the point where the president had to withdraw. There is a very difficult procedure and trying to replace him at this time. You know what? Who makes that decision? I mean, how well determine happened earlier. I think it's pretty clear that party could have just stepped in on the party. The party still has a role of selecting a new person. Ah, And that would be the party committee could elevate Mike Pence to the presidency and pick someone else as vice president, But that's a relatively simple vote. We've actually done that once in the in the seventies with vice presidential candidate Bigger place, Tom Eagleton. But the question now that the ballots are out is much more difficult. Could the president's name be removed from the ballot? I think it would be very difficult, but one further complication is in our election of president. We're really not voting for president. But we're voting for these electors in the Electoral college. They're still there in the ballot, even if you don't see them in your states about there, behind those names, and in theory, those people could be elected and then make a choice of another person come December with some complications that have come up recently, the Supreme Court but basically that there is a possibility that that even if Donald Trump's name is still on the ballot, and he were to have withdrawn Um, that those electors could still end up voting for the Republican ticket. Whatever that is, in December, they could actually decide. I mean, you would have electors around the country making a decision that Shouldn't theory be made by health experts, but they would be actually deciding who would who would be president. Assuming if Donald Trump won the election, even though he had withdrawn then there's there's this question in November of well, who's Who of these electors gonna vote for? They're gonna vote for the Republican ticket. Whatever it is. Then again, there are some complications. But the Supreme Court has allowed some states to really bind those electors. But Basically those those electors, many of them at least have the freedom to choose another person. We assume that would be coordinated by the party. And of course, that would be great questions about the legitimacy for the American public. Usually it's possible. I mean this this obviously so so speculative ahs. You said. I mean, these are extreme circumstances we're talking about, but I wonder. I mean, this is your line of work like I wonder if you get people sometimes saying, like, Oh, why do you dedicate so much time to scenarios That might never happen? But I guess there's an argument that these air really important questions that you want answered. You have to plan for for the worst and most chaotic sin areas. You do, And off with some better plans in place for for a lot of these continuity scenarios. I mean, obviously, questions of national security might matter if if we're not absolutely sure if the president is is Well, we had cases well before the 25th amendment, Woodrow Wilson, who was essentially incapacitated for his last almost a year and a half in the White House, and you know the real is a real question as to who was really running the government, the vice president ahead and stepped in and so you know, there are these questions. We don't want uncertainty in times of trouble. And you're saying that that you're not satisfied with the plans that are that are in place that the government could do a better job planning for scenarios like this. Well in some, I do think there's a very clear transfer power to the vice president. That's the 25th amendment has made that very clear if we get into much more public ated scenarios like they're both sick or the question of how you get somebody on the ballot and how the electors were picked because it happens this close to the election. Look, I think we could have more clarity. John 48 is executive director of the Continuity of Government Commission, a nonpartisan think tanks set up by the conservative leading American Enterprise Institute and the liberal leaning Brookings Institution. Thank you so much for helping us work through some of these Something big questions that you know, we hope don't have to come up. We hope the president remains healthy, but things we have to think about. We really appreciate it. Thank you.

"Monberg, executive director and acting editor of the American Conservative This summer, You've got a special issue of your Organizations magazine asking the question. What is American conservatism? Tell me about this project. Thanks so much for having me on Susan. I conceived of the project because there's a lot going on in our country right now, and it's unsettling times for Ah, a number of Americans. Everything having to do with the cove in crisis to the lock sounds to the killing of Joy George Floyd and the subsequent protests and riots and the presidential elections. A lot of people are taking the opportunity to really reexamine first principles. And trying to figure out where we stand as a nation and people on the right as the end of the president's term comes into focus are asking themselves. What is conservatism Has the president made an impact on the overall trajectory of the conservative movement and of the Republican Party? And so I wanted to take this opportunity to re examine those fundamental questions And back in the 1964 there is a seminal book that was dubbed the Federalist Papers of Concern. Autism by Jonah Goldberg, which examined that the definition of conservatism and it was put together by Frank Mayer, Bill Buckley, Russell Kirk a lot of the conservative luminaries, and it came out in 1960 for about six months before the presidential election, when very Goldwater as the Republican candidate. And it was designed to really be a book to pull together disparate strands on the right and hopefully bring them into one camp that would eventually coalesced into a vibrant political movement. It didn't succeed in 1964 but they did succeed, at least at the ballot box with the election of Ronald Reagan s O. I feel like we're in a time of transition on the right Right now We're figuring out where we're going Todo and it might not translate into Doctoral victory in November. But really, what we're doing is looking at the bigger picture and sort of examining the roots of where America should go as a country and what conservatism has to say about that, if one searches top conservative magazines on the Internet, there's a group called Thought Company, which ranked your publication number three and wrote this description. It's the magazine for the disenfranchised conservative, the one who was uncomfortable with the rash of false conservatives who have come to dominate the movement. That definition square with how you think of yourselves. I think that's pretty accurate. I mean, we were founded in 2002 as a group of conservatives that were opposed to the war in Iraq that wanted to advocate for realism and restraint in American foreign policy. And at the time that went against the grain of Republicans in DC specifically those connected to the Bush administration. They were founding purpose that was really even broader than foreign policy. It was to re examine the questions that we had that we believe had been ignored by elites in both parties since the end of the Cold War. There's sort of a confidence maybe a hubris in the end of history after the Cold War. And so we wanted to re examine questions not only relating Tio foreign policy but also relating Tio economic structures in our country. We wanted Teo, you know, essentially advocate for a conservatism and America that promotes a healthy middle class and strong and vibrant local communities and families continue to do that, And I would say that with the election of Donald Trump in 2016 We've been able to to shift from being a dad fly sort of off on the side who's served critical of where things are to being Mohr of Ah, major player in terms of participating in the national conversations because with the election of Donald Trump, interestingly enough, at least in the conservative intellectual world, reopened a host of new questions, particularly in foreign policy, political economy that has allowed us Riel opportunity to shape the future of the right. How are you, organized and funded, were funded by by donor supported predominantly 90 92% of our revenue comes from donors. We have a 2.5 $1,000,000 budget. We produced the Print magazine six times a year. We have about 30 stories a week on the website. And then we also do a number of educational programs. We have about 10 conferences and panel events a year across the country on different issues that we've focused on in the magazine. And then we also have a constitutional fellows program that we host for young and mid career professionals on the hill. And who are some of the people that our viewers will recognize who are associated with the American conservative. That's a great question, Esso in terms of our advice. Three board. We have Fox news host Tucker Carlson is on our advisory board. We have you've 11 is a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. We have David as rad of hair of Hillsdale College on We've got sort of a nice mix. We have our founders happy Cannon, Scott McConnell in a number of other voices that we've pulled on along the way and your essay in contributing to this seminar. Ah, Go through a brief history of the modern, conservative American conservative movement, and I want to do some of that with us well during our hour together, also want to talk to you a little bit about your own personal journey to conservatism. But you wrote, and it caught my attention before we can understand the nature of American conservatism and its relevance. For today, we must first define what we mean by America and what we mean by conservatism. Okay, so I'll bite. Let's start with conservatism. What is it? Yeah, right To me. Conservatism is an active thing. It's a practice more than it is an idea. And from my perspective, conservatism is the practice of conservation and cultivation. So then the question is what of course, are we conserving Ondas Americans? I think that It's it's conserving the great traditions throughout our country's history on that goes back to the founders, Andi even before that, to the first settlers that came to this country, but it also goes back to the great statesman. I think there's been a tendency within conservatism to say that that conservatism or America is only an idea. It's an idea that we can replicate an export all over the world, and unfortunately we've attempted to do that for a foreign policy. Quite often, It's gonna rise. So I think conservatism eyes more than just an idea. It's really the stories and the people that have that have taken part in the wonderful history that we have here in America. And it also stretches back to the Judeo Christian foundations of Western thought on Greco Roman traditions going all the way back to from Aristotle to Thomas, the quietness, you know all the way throughout the medieval tradition. And culminating in in America. And how do you define America? How do I define America? Well, I think it's it's important to understand that America As I said, it's not only an idea. It's also a place and it's a place that we call home and it's a place that we love. And there are, you know, basically, you know, it's it's It's a place and it's an experiment in ordered liberty and virtue, and we've had successes and failures. Throughout our history. We have seen the scope of government grow and contracts for small periods of time. And I think that the important thing when we're looking at America from a conservative perspectives, eyes, the goal is to really take the best of our traditions and apply them to the future. So it's not only a backwards looking exercise. It's really a forward looking Exercise, trying to cultivate the ideas from the path and implement them now in order to have a more adjust equitable, virtuous and free society. Well on that note, You also wrote that the first task of conservatives is to take stock of the country as it is not as they imagine it to be what he is saying there. Yeah, I guess what I'm getting at there is much of the conservative movement has had the goal of dismantling The new deal programs that were started under FDR because they inevitably led to what conservatives like to call the administrative state or the fourth branch of government. That's that's un elected and unaccountable to the people in a direct sense on I think there are very much legitimate criticisms to make of the new deal..

Americans are Uncomfortable With Going Back to Church

"Survey. Oh. Good survey from taken by the American Enterprise, institute, has shown that sixty four percent of American churchgoers. Were somewhat uncomfortable or very uncomfortable with attending in person worship. Sixty four percent sixty four percent, in fact, what they found was basically only one group is Gung Ho on going back to Church and that's why evangelical 's. Right no surprise there if you know the news. Yeah if you add up there somewhat comfortable, and they're very comfortable's. It's. Sixty one percent of them are all about. Thirty. Four percent of them are very comfortable with going back to. Yeah because they because not only do they get to engage in the worship that is so important to them, but also they get to pony lives. Show us. What idiots we are. Yeah, Yeah so apparently. Even those who reported that their congregations offer actually offered. Worship last week, Fifty, six percent of respondents said they chose not to go. Yeah, and you know. I mean obviously like one of the hotspots repeatedly everywhere this Cova. Is seems like Church's just keep popping up like that was one of the first stories coming out of South Korea right was there was a church like a crazy colty church, but nonetheless. I think that's. Probably. But that was one of the hot spots, and that that was one of the big spreaders of Covid, nineteen and obviously we're seeing that in the United States. We're we're. We're just seeing it right like this is operatives These are the kinds of places that people who care about their health and their communities health. Should, be staying away from and a lot of Christians actually do agree with that depending on their denomination if you look at Black Protestants. And add their numbers up. Sixty eight percent are. Either somewhat uncomfortable or very uncomfortable. Well. Yeah, because it's because this thing is killing them in disproportionate numbers so. I can see why. Hispanic Catholics seventy three percent are are on the uncomfortable side. Really Yeah, yeah, that's that's. That's a number that means something. Yeah, and you're white mainline Protestants. It's sixty at three percent well. Yeah, I mean I'm you know talking to my mom hi mom, if you're listening. The other day, and she was saying that you know she. Attends, a free often attend an Anglican a Canadian Anglican Church She goes there mostly for the for the. For the free coffee I think anyway And music, doesn't she really liked the? It's the Camaraderie and the people. She loves the people there and I don't blame her for that tall any who? She said that they're not going to be going until like late in the fall at the earliest. Really. Yeah fantastic. That's not even an option, so I I mean they're. They're doing it right up there i. don't know about what what the Anglicans are doing down here, but. Well Lake. PISCOPO, here, so yeah. Definitely not Anglican. We broke off from that country. Diane exactly. Anyway. Yeah I just think it's kind of interesting. To contemplate re where people's this raises an interesting thing right like it does ask people where their priorities are right and this is something that is really supposedly really important to them going church right right and their belief in God and one of the things that they're God requires them to be active participants in their religious community. I would assume that's why they go right right and because why, like honestly, I mean God bless your mother and everything I guess friends. Get you there right like I can. But. Those people I think are trying to earn points in heaven. Right sure. And, so anyway, where was my? My point was my point. That's that's the new memoir. That's the title of your memoir now. I. Don't lose it that often. So my point is that. You know when you look at. Where these where people are putting their priorities, right? They're having to do this balancing act between their health. And God right and they're and they're and him parole needs for most people they're proving. They're proving that they are actually rational actors. They're choosing their health their choosing the tangible. They're choosing what is right in front of them over what? I mean the Evangelical. Christians there, the Rangers in this in this game right there. The good ones because they're not letting some dumb disease getting the way. They're God demand of them, and they're going in there doing yeah, and if they died they, they go to heaven and God's. Right and I heard that I've heard that quote. In meet. Why haven't I in articles I've Read I've seen that quote where people are just like like. Yeah, you know like if I get. It gets God's will. God's will be done. You know and it's like. Oh. Yeah, it's pretty. It's pretty

"Blogger for the American enterprise institute talking about price gouging and you know I wasn't one of those people who what when and I bought a year's supply of toilet paper mark and will fighting in the aisles over it by the way cosco for those who did not realize that toilet paper is not going to go away all sale toilet paper sales are final the cosco so you can get you're gonna have to figure out a different way to arbitrage than just returning it but when I went to my local Walgreens and I got a toothbrush in the toilet paper was behind the counter like it was **** or something and I can only buy one package of four rolls and it was like to wax what it normally is so I went with my god or or how do how does the government determine what the magic prices with the magic multiple is to say your gouging me versus somebody else is just trying to conserve by trying to find a market clearing price yeah well that's part of the problem the beauty of a market place it is that it is a place that brings a voluntary buyer and seller together to complete the transaction now if you're going to feel about all the transactions and say with the temperatures are price gouging and then that triggers the price gouging laws and fines and penalties but then who decides what price becomes price gouging compared to just a high price during emergency when demand is high and supply circle should well so yeah I mean the state usually come up with some formula but it's always just arbitrary and not based on any kind of economic logic that what a ten or twenty percent price increase would trigger price gouging so there's really no you know logic and then so that's one thing I will who determines what price gouging as and then the other problem is then you have to waste all of these activities sources of law enforcement to go out and prosecute people and respond to complaints and that often what happens is it's it's really small businesses that are the ones that get fined and targeted with these price gouging complaints it's usually not in a Walmart and target so that's another problem it is first of all yeah who decides the price gouging is how how do we justify spending all of these resources and then what about the small business sector to queues of it and they get fined and penalized and then maybe that puts them out of business and.

"We're speaking with Matthew Kennedy phone again three beacon residents felt the American enterprise institute in Matthew you write about the fight against socialism pretty good dot com and the fact that it ain't over just because the Menshevik is going to be the nominee enough Bolshevik the your your concern about about socialism even against the backdrop of the rejection of Bernie Sanders's candidacy right well I think we have three reasons to continue to worry about socialism and the first is Bernie it may not have won the nomination but he has driven the Democratic Party to the left and we feel that just in recent days the Joe Biden the topic a version of Sanders is a free college proposals and another version of the list of foreign bankruptcy opposes the Biden has definitely moved left far beyond where he stood as vice president another reason is that there is a developing infrastructure of socialism in this country you know whether it's parties like the working families party or whether it's the democratic socialists of America there's a lot of online media office in print media that is that explicitly socialist and decent petitions are affecting what we call the mainstream media as well you can kind of see the mainstream media taking on much more left going down to the when you look at something like the sixteen nineteen project of the new York times for example stated saying that America was founded on the basis of slavery and then finally we can't ignore the fact that Bernie is drawing heavily from young people in particular Asian voters and Hispanic voters and these groups are the two fastest growing groups in the country to that point about to Bernie's cachet with younger people also younger people who are themselves are candidates for office was they're successful the first time out or not those that tend to be you under forty and running in Democrat primaries and we've seen this in my hometown of Chicago for things like the Chicago city council tend to be socialised and some of them a self avowed socialists the same way Bernie Sanders is right and even if they lose you know they're young so they can come back and you know well socialism at the national level right now doesn't have much of a future cause real damage to the municipal level I mean just look at the chats about it and the young prosecutor liked it D. A. San Francisco and of course he's a prosecutor who excited the criminals that he felt that the the the social pathologies that could bloom the socialists are elected to office a very frightening Krasner in Philadelphia and king fox and in Chicago a two more examples financed by George Soros who in in part by George Soros's super pacs I mean there is this move on the left that sort of under talked about because we're so focused on Medicare for all in the green new deal but the move on the left to move to a culture of non prosecution at the local and regional level right and a man that's a sure way to to to get a resurgence of crime in this country which were already staying and and places like New York City for example so it's a multi faceted spread and it just doesn't go away if Joe Biden is the nominee of the Democratic Party there needs to be real resources intellectual resources.

"At the American enterprise institute their website their initials AP II dot org he is the editor of national affairs and good evening nice to have you on thanks very much for having me absolutely and you've written the most thoughtful piece though that has to do with the I suppose whatever happened to the days of Congress of making deals that led to passing laws suffice it to say there was a time when the there there was some a camaraderie that existed between Democrats and Republicans probably the the active friendship of Ronald Reagan and tip o'neill of may have been somewhat exaggerated but but they did they did they did get a log enough to at least two of the occasional thing even despite a severe ideological differences and a boy these days I'm not sure you could get a resolution passed by both houses of Congress saying that the sun rises in the east yeah I think that's really right you know it's easy to overstate how friendly think used to be but at the very least Congress has always been an institution that exists to enable some compromise some accommodation not just to enable it to compel it the idea behind Congress's their differences in our country and we need a place to work them out so that some progress can be made towards legislative solutions to public problems and are facing a time now members of Congress do not feel that pressure do not feel that input is not so much to agree but they disagree constructively in ways that point toward deals and I do think that something significant has been lost and its affect really shows in our political life and then there's another very important point did that do you make of that is there is no such thing as bargaining in public a lot of people of course I'm sure would argue that the transparency is the answer to everything and that we simply we simply if if we have problems we need even more transparency they failed to recognize the fact that almost every instance of progress what do you consider it good progress for bad progress but forward movement let's call in almost every instance involves people who start out by making certain public statements which are taken as intractable doctrine by some of their followers and then they sit down behind closed doors they say okay now here's what's on the table we give you this for this of the other side says well we'll give you that bad and and quote bargaining takes place bargaining does not take place out in the open and I think that's really important point did you make yeah exactly and part of what's happened in Congress is the move toward conspiracy now transferred to the matter of degree and of course you do need some of that you know whatever decision made in a in the smoky back grew more I guess they're not even allowed to be a non smoke filled room he's to his but AT and and so there was certainly a need for the beginnings of a move toward transparency in the nineteen seventies when these pressures began but we've reached a point right now where there are really only per formative spaces in Congress there are very few deliberative spaces there are no places to for members to talk to each other to bargain to deal to make compromises the only real protected spaces left are basically the leadership offices at midnight before government shut down and in fact that's where all important legislation end up getting made because there is nowhere else to bargain and negotiate so I days but if you're on the losing side of one of those discussions these days then it gets leaked to The New York Times that extend or if you're the other side of the coin to get leaked to the Wall Street journal but it gets leaked one way or the other yeah exactly and and so everybody understands themselves as a performer in that process rather than as a legislator and ultimately while there needs to be some transparency about the product of of bargaining a bargaining itself can only happen in private and if we believe in the constitutional purpose of the Congress the American Congress is not a European legislature it's not just the place where the majority gets to have its way until the next election it is intended to compel compromise and deal making and because there's no room to do that now Congress just doesn't function he you know I I I I've I've often wondered about that are we in an intractable situation here if well you know I think it is it is there something we could quote be done about this or is this just the inevitable outcome of of where we are yeah I think there are ways to address it if if it's recognized as a problem and those which would have to start particularly by changes to some of the procedures and processes that govern the Congress especially the budget process the the federal budget pressures that exist now it was created in the nineteen seventies at a time when it seems like Democrats would run the Congress forever and Republicans with more often be in the presidency and the budget process was designed to empower the Congress against the president in fact I was the Democrats against the Republicans we're no longer in that situation it's a very good thing we now have a Congress that swings back and forth between the parties and it needs a budget process that takes account of that and that rather than creating with this one big annual votes on a kind of message document allows members to legislate in an ongoing way throughout the year to make small inroads to make small bit of progress on different issues and in the absence of that members don't have much to do they spend all their time basically performing for the cameras in one way or another for their social media following they don't think of themselves in the business of bargaining and they're out of practice a lot of members by now have never even really seen the Congress function the way it's meant to and don't even know what it is they're not doing and if I did it the member I've I've had people complain to me about the the the the members of Congress don't do anything you never see a sitting on the house floor I've tried to explain to these people that in fact the course we've got a committee meeting is a good sub committee meetings and above all they've got meeting with constituents some some of whom by the way can be incredibly self serving and and and and even stupid I mean they they treat media congressmen like you would called nine eleven and to complain let's say that that your cell phone doesn't work or something yeah and they also spent a course a tremendous amount of time raising money in order to run for reelection so I have told people that in point of fact I don't care if your member of Congress is eighty you couldn't keep up with them for a week it's not a lack of work that we're talking about it's working on the wrong things exactly a member of Congress will lead very busy lives are very intense and very engaging a lot of things but these days they're not engaged in what we would consider the fundamental work of legislation trying to write laws trying to negotiate with each other trying to oversee the work of the executive branch an exercise the the core legislative powers that the constitution gives to the Congress in our system and again a lot of the reason for that is that they they are not given the room to do that and they are not ultimately taking the responsibility to do it Congress is weak there's no question about that but Congress is weak in large part because its members have chosen to make it weak they don't want the responsibility for hard choices they don't want the hard work of oversight and so that weakness then creates all kinds of other problems in our system of government when we think the president are over active or the administrative state there's too much our judges are over reaching a lot of that is actually a function of a Congress that under reaches in overnight and I would say constitutionally unconstitutionally under reaches for example of it you you look at let's say the closing of military bases will they can never get around to that because the public and I like to think of good old camp swampy as a local public works project not an effective expenditure of their military tax dollars and so they come up with these these tax of these these base closing commissions and which they come up with a plan it's up or down get get to make the changes to it or organ right rational pay raises Congress doesn't vote due to raise its pay anymore they allow third party to raise their pay and then they they simply helplessly say what can I do they forced the money on me but by far the most egregious example is what happens with the three letter agencies Congress doesn't have to write these laws anymore they write some broad over arching theme like the drug administration will deal with hang nails whatever and then the drug administration not elected Erik Kratz these are the people who write the specific rules by which we must live I argue that such a constitutional you got a law that says the secretary shall reduce the cost of prescription drugs well okay but what is Congress actually asking the administration to do that and then gets made by the executive branch and if if constituents so like if members of Congress can complain because of course not their fault they didn't make sure that it is absolutely a dereliction of our constitutional system it is the failure of Congress to take the responsibility for its own work and to then complain that the administrative agencies over reach is of course just preposterous yeah because we give them the power to over region and then it will never but like nature abhors a vacuum of they're gonna they're gonna take that power if it's had to do it would seem to me that that anybody with quotes standing whatever that's supposed to mean and lawyers speak anybody with standing could bring a case that simply says that Congress by doing this as unconstitutionally abdicated their authority and dare the Supreme Court to actually say something yeah I mean we're we're reaching a point where what's what's been called the doctrine of non delegation which the courts say that Congress does not have the power to delegate its fundamental legislative authority may well be tested in the courts and we now have a majority in the Supreme Court as of the last few years that could well in fact rule that these kinds of delegations are unconstitutional and create a situation where Congress that take responsibility for creating the laws that the agencies then only execute we're pretty far from that today in a court ruling like that would create a real new situation our constitutional system that could compel some rethinking of how Congress does business one eight six six five oh Jimbo is our number one eight six six five oh five four six two six as we talk about a pretty fundamental issue it is an issue that is not going to get a whole lot of time unfortunately in this campaign as we become familiar with names and and policies and the like and of voters that don't pay that much attention suddenly realize who in fact is running for president for the Senate and the house and so on but this is a pretty fundamental thing and it's the kind of stuff I might add that the American enterprise institute does so well they actually think about the real underlying problems and that you all live in our guess is director of social cultural and constitutional studies at the American enterprise institute you can read some of the stuff that they knock out which is.

The glaring loophole in U.S. virus response: Human error

"Joining us from New York this is Dr Scott Gottlieb he is the former head of the food and drug administration service commissioner in the trump administration from twenty seventeen to twenty nineteen a resident fellow at the American enterprise institute here to talk about their response to global coronavirus doctor good morning thanks for having me can we start with you gauging the response to date what is working and what's been done well what would you have some concerns with as far as the U. S. response well the efforts we made to implement travel restrictions and limit travel from China clearly bought us some time it it slowed the rate of new cases coming into the country I think the question then becomes what did we do at that time and we did some things well and something's not so well I think we prepare the nation we got the health care system prepared we were able to educate providers we learned more about the virus and and how it spreads and how you can combat it the one thing we didn't do that we should of was having place broader screening we should have implemented screening weeks ago and really a month ago maybe more to try to detect small outbreaks early because before they became large outbreaks we had problems rolling out a diagnostic test we took a very linear approach in my view and depended upon one task propagated by the centers for disease prevention disease control prevention rather than also working with manufacturers and academic labs to try to get in place other kinds of diagnostics when that CDC tests didn't work then we had to scramble and so we're just now getting in place the kind of screening capacity in this country that we probably should have had three four weeks ago and what that means is that there are cases in the United States probably that came in some point in mid January maybe a little earlier than that from China probably that have been spreading and we probably have at this point certainly hundreds of cases and maybe in a low thousands in certain regions there is certain going to be certain hot spots in the country this is a pervasive spread I remember it's a country of three hundred thirty million people so you several thousand cases is still a small numbers so anyone's individual risk of getting the corona virus right now is is low but the challenge is that now that there is spread in the country it's going to be make it's going to make it harder I'm not impossible but harder to contain those outbreaks and ultimately mitigate continued spread when I looked at the outbreak stands actor into those two deaths in Washington state what does that suggest as far as the concentrations of possible concentrations in the United States well parts of Washington state look like they might be a hot zone right now parts of northern California appear that way you know there's a case in New York and it's hard to believe that there isn't spread in New York City given how much travel comes through comes through New York City I think when you see cases where people are hospitalized or were there for counties that suggests that there are a lot of cases underneath those those sort of index cases but those are the ones that we're going to identify first because the ones to patients who are going to get tested first are the patients who have presented or right now in hospitals and are very sick with an undiagnosed form of pneumonia and now that doctors have the capacity to test the corona virus to start testing those patients and so the initial cases that we identify in this country are going to be skewed heavily towards more severe patients but as we've been traced back from those patients and start testing other people who might be mildly symptomatic or even a symptomatic then we're going to start to five more cases of more benign illness from corona virus because we do know that most people don't get I'm very sick from coronavirus and and a large percentage of people don't really develop any symptoms any meaningful symptoms at all it's just a small percentage that developed pneumonia and a small percentage to go on to you know have really severe illness and find themselves in

Grad Students Will Receive Billions in Debt Forgiveness

"Believe you know by now that Americans have a lot of student. Loan debt and many people are paying down. That debt was something called an income based repayment plan. That's where your payments are based on. Yes your income and you pay a percentage of that income every month and then if after twenty to twenty five years you haven't paid off those loans. The government will toss what remains of your Iou into the trash. But so how much is that? GonNa cost the government as taxpayers. The Congressional Budget Office put out a report answering that very question yesterday. And the number is around two hundred and seven billion dollars over the next decade. Wow marketplace's justin who reports it might sound like the government's issuing a get out of jail free card for all student borrowers but Justin Drager at the National Association of Student. Financial aid administrators says graduate students stand to benefit the most. There are less subsidies grants available for graduate students and there are more high cost programmes for graduate students the CBO report says Grad students on income based repayment plans. To two thousand dollars on average. Five Times what an undergraduate on the same plan over the last decade the percentage of Grad students participating in the program has grown six-fold drager says while the program was meant to be a safety net for students. The more students are needing the safety net than I. It should be a warning signal that we have a distress in the student. Loan market part of the issue. Is that a lot of graduate programs. Don't lead to higher. Earning jobs says Antoinette floor is at the Center for American progress you have people like social workers and teachers who may already have undergraduate debt and they are going into a field where the earnings are relatively low borrowers on income based repayment plans. Typically pay off their loans using ten to fifteen percent of their discretionary income each month. That's often barely enough to make a dent in what they owe says. Jason Delile the American Enterprise Institute. The payments are very low relative to what people are borrowing and relative to the term before they would have the debt forgiven the C. B. O. Estimates that by the end of the decade eighty-one percent of the government's two hundred billion in student loan. Forgiveness will go to graduate students.

Does killing Soleimani really change anything in the Middle East?

"For a generation Iran's May General Sulejmani he was a consequential Fica League in the Persian Gulf for the Americans in the region Sunnis? He was a terrorist mastermind for the Iranians the Assad regime in Syria Hezbollah in Lebanon. Sulejmani was a hero who protected the Shia cresent in the region. So it's no wonder the Iranian generals death via a drone attack attack in Baghdad. That was a huge news story. Earlier this month cast into the money rainy and military commander assassinated in the US drone strike on mm struggling marks a huge escalation coming just days at was revered by Iran supporters in proxies being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of Americans in the Middle East over the we took took action last night to stop a war. What comes next? What's the broader strategy? Here we did not take action to start a war. Your since the American killing of Sulejmani Tehran launched a missile strike on your spices in Iraq and in the process mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian Ilana carrying one hundred seventy six passengers something. The Mullah's had initially denied responsibility but crucially the Iranians signings avoided killing Americans. which was the red line? The president trump has drawn. US military response. So we'll this episode. Leave Iran Ryan stronger or is tyron now more isolated than ever and what is the showdown between Tehran and Washington Maine for Iraq the US military Tori prisons there and Iran's nuclear ambitions. Danny Applica- is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington and Co host of the AAAGH. Ah podcast what the Hell is going on. Making sense of the world get identity. Hey Tom and I'm in. Sokoll is author of Iran Rausing the survival and and future of the Islamic Republic and CO author of Islam beyond borders the Oma in world politics. Welcome back to Iran. How good morning now? Also Amani abetted genocide in Syria to keep the Assad regime in power. He's responsible for the deaths of many American troops. He armed Hezbollah in. Lebanon with rockets is to attack. Innocent Israelis killed many innocent Sunnis in Iraq. So I mean isn't the world better off without Sulejmani. Were president trump. I think so. And also quite a number of American allies in the region Probably I think the same way but at the same time demand was a national hero and in fact that he was the one of the top strategic brains behind Iran's overseas operations and expansion of eight onion influence in the region. I will just support related to the fair that it only leadership has about the possibility of an American attack or an Israeli attack on a combined and attack. But let me see this Tom that nobody is commendable. dimitris full of commanders. Top commanders into the Nobel Prize winners and so on General money is being replaced And I think e to the debt is a widespread view in the West. That if you bump one or two individuals isn't the situation is going to get better We duty cold in history that take for example a Prime Minister Anthony Eden go around the nineteen fifties and calling for the elimination of Jamaa Nasser as the national president of Egypt and has was that this man is removed from a then. Everything will be fine. Nothing died in nine hundred. Seventy and a situation has not improved a cold and and at the same thing was said to be so I mean the point though. Is that knocking off Salomon. He's not going to make a great deal of difference. But also can I just add to this Dani salamone and these Iranian backed Shia proxies. They did help inadvertently into why help. America Islamic state. So does it worry you that people cheering the loudest about this. Guy's death other suny jihadists in there are slighted areas in the desert and the mountains of Iraq and Syria. I don't think they're the ones who are cheering the loudest I. I think you heard pretty loud cheering from here. I think you heard some plenty of loud cheering in In Iraq and Lebanon and and elsewhere throughout throughout the region. Look you know. I think it's important to acknowledge that. That as the head of the cuts force Qassem Soleimani was a very powerful folks very influential very strategic and very effective leader and he brought that effectiveness to things. That would terrible And the arming of Hezbollah. The murderer of half million Syrians. The arming of mass. The arming of in Yemen. We could go on for a while here but but But he did all of those things but when when the challenge was from Sundays you had is. He helped set up and guide ride. The hoste. Shabby the popular mobilization units in Iraq that That that ended up being part of the battle to to defeat Isis. The problem here is that every situation in the region is is more complicated than the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Just because Stalin Fort with us to defeat Nazi Germany did not make stolen a good guy. And if you look at these anti-regime protests some and. I've been breaking out in Iran since Tehran admitted that its military military shot down. A Ukrainian passenger Ilana have the Iranians overreached because despite the Iranian successes in Iraq Syria and Lebanon on on their rule out officials sites there on stable they print across he so have the Iranians overreached. There's no doubt that many Iranians feel about the Ashim and today have protested over the last few months in order to bring about A structural reforms today as a system of governance and economy which is setting enormously under represent- trump's sanctions but has the Iran overreached. What are I pointed out earlier I mean Iran does fear a a very strongly as possible American that much Israeli combined attack and therefore what update on your the humans done his belt reasonable security and press such for itself which would really want? Shepherdess Arafat at all costs but that does not necessarily Saudi mean that Iran is only Aggressive power in the region aggressive actor in the region. I mean. Let's not forget that that that the destabilization Iraq really started the two thousand three. US invasion of that country. Okay so the. The American invasion of Iraq helped Iran on because it overturned the suny state and it created a Shia majority Stein. I saw a natural law with the Shia brethren in Tehran following following on from that Danny shortly a problem about striking at pro Iranian sheeham paramilitary groups as trump has done is the now part of the Iraqi state. So is it any wonder. Washington's increasingly modulation is part of the world. First of all. I think it's offensive talk about Shiites. As if they're all some sort of monolith. The share of Iraq are Arabs. The Shia of Iran are Persians. These these are different people this. These two countries Shia versus Shia fought a bloody war for eight years in which there were one million casualties casualties in the nineteen eighties. The notion that somehow Iraq is a natural satellite or or or or slave to Iran is wrong Iran has chosen to try to dominate that country and demonstrations throughout the central and southern part of Iraq. Over the last month have been against Iranian domination the Iranian consulate in Jeff was burned to the ground at the end of last year not by Sonny's he's not by Sunni jihadis not by Isis not by Kurds but by Shiites carrying placards yelling out to out for Iran. Get Out of our country and I think that that is absolutely right to suggest that Iran has gained more influence in Iraq since the demise of Saddam Hussein. I I guess I I'm just not that big a fan of Saddam Hussein and the and the stability that he brought to Iraq. I wish that the United States had done more in the aftermath of the wall. I think thinks that we I think that we failed miserably. In many instances I think it was absolutely fatal in two thousand eleven when at a time of genuine stability in Iraq Iraq. President Obama withdrew troops and really provided the opportunity for Isis. To rise up again. My guest Daniel Placate from the American Enterprise Institute. And I'm in Sokoll. He's the author of Iran rausing and Islam beyond borders. I mean how would you respond to all of this. Because we've got these tensions here between Tehran Iran and Washington and the Iranian backed Shia politicians released most of them in Baghdad. I support if not closer ties with Tehran. They want the the Americans out of Iraq. But don't the sooners and the Kurds fee for the Iranian intrusion in Iraqi sovereignty. I absolutely and of course sir. The APP is not only the president of the American so who'd be which are being the opposed to in Iraq but also the presence of eight onions there. No question Ah about that but at the same time if we know that the majority of the Iraqi population is made up of the Shiites and some powerful elements among the Shiites have got the value equals relationship and relationship. What they don't know in the meantime ago? The Iraqi parliament release the iranian-backed Majority Shia legislators I support the withdrawal of US troops Danny now given trump's ambivalence about the region and the fact that he was elected impact to get the US out of the so-called forever awards isn't a US military withdrawal from Iraq. Just what trump and many war-weary Americans want. Well it's kind of funny. Isn't it because we start off talking about the you know the Iranians and what they want and and of course. The number one goal is to get the Americans out of the region and that is in fact the instruction is that has gone out to all of their proxy groups. All around the region. Is You need to step up activities to get the Americans out. Then we've got the president of the United States. It's who dearest and fondest goal is to get American troops out of the region so so a couple weeks after killing Kassim Sulaimaniyah. We have this unbelievably in coherent bizarre response. Where we where we're doing exactly what the around him one let? This is what Donald Trump has to sort out. He has to sort out whether he's the president. He's the kind minded president who who leads in a forthright fashion against men like costume ceremony. Who Seek to destabilize the region and extend Iran's hegemony Germany or he is going to be the kind of president that like Bernie Sanders like Barack Obama wants to turn around and high tail fin is to the Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's uh-huh Washington energy independent America Stein fought these endless wars danny well A? They aren't endless wars. We have lost fewer people in these. This was than than than we lost a single day in World War Two so while they are conflicts that have continued on and off to a certain extent. You know the notion Shen that we've been sold that somehow we've still got one hundred and fifty thousand troops on the ground and losing them at a rapid pace is just wrong. We lost six in Syria. I I mourn every single one of them but the Kurds lost eleven thousand in their fight against Isis. So what what. What is the reason? We'll tell you very straightforwardly woodley because every time we turn tail every time someone says let's get out of that bloody Middle East. Let's pay attention to something fun. Like Asia and you'd like that. Tom Would now but hang on your way but every time we say that we end up being dragged back because the dynamics in the region of the ones that bring us back we need. We need a long-term solution that lets us. Stay away for good rather than one where we run away. Anita did it come back every single decade I mean the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal Provided tyron with as much as apparently one hundred fifty billion dollar windfall. Aw and certainly many people who are skeptical of the deal side that the Iranian spent lavishly arming the Shia militias across the region. So what it was trump right to pull the US out of the deal and instead impose maximum Prussia built around these economic sanctions on Iran. I think he was totally wrong and and I can care.

Mitch McConnell says there is 'zero chance' Trump is removed

"The impeachment trial which is expected if the house passes this impeachment of President Trump this next week senators serve as jurors and they take an oath to be impartial. That's important context for what you're about to see. The Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell Sean Hannity. Last night they everything I do during this. I'm coordinating with White House counsel. There will be no the difference between the president's position our position as to how to handle this. There's no chance the president's going to be removed from office. My my hope is that there won't be a single Republican who votes for either of these articles of impeachment have essentially the jury foreman in this very serious constitutional process announcing he's going to have the defended dictate the trial. And thus obviously if you control the rules you may control. The verdict norm Ornstein a long time measured voice in Washington responding thus quote McConnell studying and outrageous admission that he's in the tank already for trump on the trial. Rose is a flat violation of the Ot will take his jer if a jury foreman and a murder trial was founded work closely. With the defense he would be prosecuted strong words McConnell though and this is important knows what he's doing in fact he's taken this very oath administered by the Chief Justice on the Senate floor to be impartial before so he has every reason to know that what he's saying today is a public announcement that guts or even violates the OT is about to take care. It was in the impeachment trial of Clinton. We'll all senators. Now stand and raise your right hand you will do impartial justice. According to the Constitution and laws so help you God the joining us now. Is that historian or scenic attributed the Atlantic and a resident scholar at the right leaning American Enterprise Institute as well as Joyce fans for US ATTORNEY MSNBC NBC legal analysts. Tell me you're thinking norm. I smacked by this. Not that I expected. McConnell was is going to follow the facts and where they would lead which would be to remove Donald Trump from office. This is a a partisan process. It's going to be a partisan process but to basically admit before you even start the trial that it's rigged is just quite astonishing and in a way it reminds me of Donald Trump in the campaign saying Russia. If you're listening get the emails followed by just a few weeks ago. China if you're listening get me dirt on Biden. It's I'm going to say it right out in the open.

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Hits Highest Level in at least 3 Million Years

"In our science fact of the day this just in according to the world meteorological association no you know flaming left wing think tank the a this is the W. ammo the literally the world meteorological association atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide CO two are now at the highest ever in three million years now that is longer than human history human history only goes back a couple hundred thousand years so atmosphere CO two levels right now are higher than when Lucy was around right the the pre human and a higher than when Lucy's ancestors were around getting Lucy was only about a million or so ago all of which means that our children and grandchildren can expect temperatures to continue to rise more extreme weather more sea level rise more destruction to marine life more destruction of land based ecosystems more death of insects and and stuff at the bottom of the food chain which then echoes up so that the birds die and and we're saying this right now you know sixty seventy percent of certain kinds of birds particularly the insect insectivorous birds drawn from our planet we're looking at at at an insect apocalypse right now and and this is just the very beginning we have not yet even hit one point five degrees Celsius increase in temperature over the bass line and the pre industrial base line I mean we're just about there but we haven't quite hit it and the bottom line what what all these climate scientists are saying is is that we have to stop it right there I can't go any farther and yet what is the industry doing right now and and in on the right wing media that is that is supportive of industry while they're making fun of the stuff I mean Michael Mann for example the the the scientist he's been a guest on this program many times as a brilliant easy university of Pennsylvania sciences he's the guy who invented the cop the hockey stick conception of the SCO to going up that Al Gore popularized bed professor of cleans climate science or atmospheric science or whatever it is add to Penn state university one of probably a top five climate scientists in the world Michael Mann me was made fun of by the competitive interest enterprise institute in their blog ran Samberg wrote that well first of all they they attacked Michael Mann they said that his science was nonsense and and that is so Penn state did an investigation because there was all this ball Rollin publicity Penn state did an investigation what they found was that he was totally stand up everything he said was true and the way he said it was fine and though he published it was in compliance with scientific rigorous scientific standards reviews stuff so the compatible devices that is one of these right wing think tanks in quotes it really just a propaganda show operation for industry guy name brand Sandburg wrote that Penn state had quote covered up one two in by Michael Mann and characterize man as quote the Jerry Sandusky of climate science because he had quote molested and tortured data in service of politicized science and then not a blog posted by hosted by the National Review online the national reviews the magazine that William F. Buckley started back in the day when he was alive the saying that the you know the National Review is supporting segregation not just in South Africa but in the United States as well apartheid the National Review still around even though he is gone and they said in the end they oppose this was mark staying he said the man was behind the fraudulent climate change study in the investigation clearing him was a cover up basically and so Michael Landon Jr mattered factions from from the competitive enterprise institute see I am from National Review and instead they naturally you published an op ed by rich Lowry their editor titled get lost well so Matt Michael Mann suit and they just tried to get the lawsuit dismissed and here's the headline this is in the Washington post's Robert Barnes a climate scientists may pursue his definition lawsuit against a magazine in a Washington think tank after the Supreme Court on Monday declined to intervene at this stage of the litigation Sam Alito dissented Sam Mr craze right wing dissented but the the Supreme Court said not spread go ahead and so on it's absolutely amazing I mean this is this is so so here we are we've got more CO two in the atmosphere than at any time in the history of the human race or even the pre human race day in other holidays mmhm more and more CO two in the air our course it takes sometimes as much as a century to that for the CO two in a holding heat and to accumulate to the point where you really start seeing the effects we're already starting to and you've got industry trying to pretend that there's not and there's nothing to see here and making fun of it ridicule and the folks and I've got real scientists were starting to fight back and say no this is real stuff and then the world meteorological organization just comes out and says CO two levels higher than they've ever been

"D. B. O.. welcome back right. Marc Thiessen wrote me an email that is calm but I was way anymore. he writes for The Washington Post American enterprise institute is perspectives are invaluable they come from a learning area to former President Bush speech writer and he also has his iron he's got this great memory and a great Lexus nexus he realized his whole look into the background of the Ukraine in the U. S. states prior to what they're saying happened July twenty fifth mark welcome back. right so mark you right did Democrats double standard what is sentiment does Dick Durbin and sent away Hey like he did too when requested Ukraine. almost got it got almost no attention is only like one news story about this on CNN in in and very innocuous back in may of this year the the the three senators wrote a letter to the to the prosecutor general of Ukraine demanding that you re open for investigations related to the mall or pro and they and they implied very clear very clearly in the in the letter that their support for aid to Ukraine with the state they said look we're strong supporters of of Ukraine engagement and we voted for what they call the capacity building support but we are extremely disappointed in your shutting down the investigation that we demand that you re opened we just need to make one or what they didn't say or what but the implication is very clear right so they mentioned eight early will see of the transcript of Donald Trump says he didn't mention it when he asked for them to reopen an investigation so literally these three democratic senators did exactly what they are accusing Donald Trump up in fact they did get more cost precisely than what the then what Donald Trump allegedly did when he asked them to re open an investigation into into occupied so let's check but hunter Biden aside for second in the new president and the July twenty fifth this happened in may so what's the difference between the two and but not about to get a chance eight at ten AM I'll be able to go over the transcript all rights in order to ten AM but I'm looking through it are right now I'm not going to I'm going to keep with the embargo but at ten AM war eastern time because we have a Philly soul country will be able to go into detail on it but a good do you do your assessment use you've seen this political climate you're here in Washington every day you write for The Washington Post. where is this whole thing go mark I think that this is a disaster job but and you know because I mean look I again I do see that you've seen the transcript I haven't seen it we had none of us have seen the whistle blower account but if the Democrats want to and have an investigation access center Kennedy was on on but the show last night before I came on and he said there's going to be an investigation of the press and there's going to be an investigation of the vice president and he's absolutely right so I would not be surprised to see Senate Democrats and Republicans calling up hunter Biden. I would not be surprised if they call up a bunch of the nonpartisan epic dextral personal Obama officials to testify as to whether or not they warned of pro life president Biden that said that his son the investment in a involvement in Burris ma was a conflict of interest because it was. the prosecutor completely right hunter Biden final on to work for a natural gas company four days after Joe Biden the vice president came to Ukraine and urge them to increase natural production all stepped up pressure from from Russia to literally four days later he joined the company that the conflict of interest then you bring in the prosecutor he fires the prosecutor everybody I know is that the prosecution of empire that he was corrupt the I MF it saying that the US government was saying a lot of allies were saying it by. the US government ethics regulations which five thousand by David you cannot even you cannot take official action if there is a if there is could even be an implication that you're doing it for other than than the right reason but there is a conflict of interest so she should not have been the point man on your plane you should not have been put the one question for the firing of the of the of the prosecutor because it created the appearance of a conflict of interest even if everything Biden says is true that he did he did it for the right reasons it was still a violation of the law and that's all going to come out. public and it's gonna be university professors who are experts in ethics people who are absolutely unimpeachable a non partisan we're gonna say that Joe Biden had a conflict of interest and should not have been involved in the firing of the prosecutor mark couple other things you talk about by then in two thousand sixteen eight oh bragging that vice president threatened with hold a billion dollars in loan guarantees and with the swagger and by the way oblivious to how bad this could potentially make him look so yeah I mean that this couldn't come back to haunt him but I guess he thought he'd be a compliant press but then this weekend a totally I've never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings when his son admitted into New York interview they expressed concede that his father expressed concern about the verismo post at least once quote dad said I hope you know what you're doing and I said I do. so another goal. he lied he said he never discussed with the thought that they did this got that and not only that it's it's it's so dishonest because even say say that because maybe he and his son didn't have a long conversation about it or if you have a heart to heart about it but in that New Yorker article it it could just be I'll bomb our energies are as safe as having come to vitamins raised issues about his son the bald man in the company so he was warned before he fired the prosecutor your before you buy the right and on top of that the New York times had it had a had a report here before saying how how hunters involvement in response was undermining Biden anti corruption message and even cornered somebody from the office saying it had no impact so that means that he is easy here his flight but that he didn't know what he was oblivious to what is some of do it and I read this on Monday and you have the quote here in your column today in twenty in December twenty fifteen by prepared to go to the Ukraine his aides braced for renewed scrutiny of hunter's relationship with prisma Amos Holstein the Obama administration's special envoy for energy policy raise the matter with biting quote that's a month the New York Times published an article about how hunters business dealings Ukraine undermined the VP's anti corruption message which quoted a buying spokesperson say in a no win back so the Obama people worried about if they were free to approach the vice president. because it was just someone else trails personal family stuff if you read through that whole New Yorker story because some of the people saying how they they really didn't like to come and talk to buying about the problems with his son because he wouldn't get mad he get stacked and he would sort of you know take a deep breath inside of me felt like they were actually hurting him when they when they had to raise the stakes hunter Biden and this is the other thing is that when this investigation happens after but it's such a severe brain. going to be. and we'll have you back John Roberts next. this is news ninety six point five W.

"And a half percent Michael strain at the American enterprise institute says scary stories of hyper inflation past make people fear any rise in prices today we are used to thinking of inflation as a problem it's something we want less of but he says now the concern among economists is actually done a pretty dramatic flip to being concerned about too little inflation why do economists think we need inflation at all one standard explanation is that if prices stop rising consumers will hold back on buying stuff waiting to get a better deal but dean Baker at the center for economic and policy research doesn't think consumers actually planned that way suppose you're gonna buy a refrigerator and we'll just say cost a thousand dollars to make a really nice refrigerator and you go oh wait a second prices are falling half a percent a year so if I wait six months then I could save five dollars I don't think that's a very realistic story Baker says the most compelling economic argument for inflation has to do with interest rates and the federal reserve some amount of inflation to percent three maybe four percent turns out to be very beneficial because it gives the federal reserve more ability to boost the economy in a downturn here's what Baker's talking about to fight recession the fed cuts interest rates to lower the cost of borrowing money that's supposed to encourage businesses and consumers to spend and invest more jumpstarting the economy now there's a bit of complicated math here but basically interest rates are calculated in part based on the inflation rate if inflation sneers zero the fed doesn't have much room to lower interest rates any further so a moderate level of inflation gives the fed the maneuvering. room it needs plus Baker says steady moderate inflation actually encourages businesses to expand it from a car company thinking of building a new factory ago there's two percent inflation next year I'm gonna be selling cars for two percent more money two years out of the sun and for four percent more so that gives me more incentive to invest now inflation even middling inflation like we've got now isn't good for everyone people on a fixed income like our listener Jeffrey gotten see their purchasing power slowly erode and if we just don't rise at least as much as prices workers lose ground and become poorer over time as well I'm Mitchell Hartman

sewer busters array robust just as bad as what we saw in two thousand a worse is a matter of fact and you got William Jennings Bryan noises from the left wing populist who also was anti immigration anti trade all the stuff that we don't like of populism both right and left this always comes around in this is always our opportunity for those of us who believe in the promises of democratic capitalism list of the world he got a look at these times and you say this is an opportunity look you're the quintessential entrepreneur of land not just in media in a bunch of business because you believe that when you look around you say something's not right that's an opportunity to build something good and true so we look at the idea of Khan to me today we see all these people these young people say that capitalism is a sham that socialism is a better as a better system you've got people running for president you have leaders in Congress were espousing democratic socialism that's our opportunity because that's when the conversation is right well look at this and I say man I am so lucky to be alive right now I'm releasing a movie on on on major digital platforms that talks about how cal capitalism is this as a beautiful system for helping the poor it couldn't be better timed and all of us can do that you're like the Glenn Beck is an apostle for democratic capitalism and

make the impact how do you have the conversations because because quite honestly. I feel when I go to Silicon Valley and I know what Silicon Valley is okay right. what you talk about your very sophisticated we talk about technology so I II I go there and I feel in some ways that I am in a place that is more America than America because their group of young people who are like Hey I have an idea and they just do it and it changes the world it is truly free market and and the ideas are so exciting and they're so big I mean they're talking about changing the world it's it's dynamic. where are those people on our side where are the people we are good at articulating I mean I I kind of came to a place.

opportunity because that's when the conversation is right but look at this and I say man I am so lucky to be alive right now I'm releasing a movie on on on major digital platforms that talks about how cal capitalism is this as a beautiful system for helping the poor it couldn't be better timed and all of us can do that you like that Glenn Beck is an apostle for democratic capitalism and you're gonna get a better bigger audience listening to the fact that you believe in global brotherhood not in global profit and that's the reason that you stand behind the free enterprise system it took a look at it there will be that things will happen I got it but there's gonna be good things that happen to and let's focus on all the good things that we can make. so how do we. how do we make the impact how do you have the conversations because because quite honestly. I feel when I go to Silicon Valley and I know what Silicon Valley is okay right another lot you talk about your very sophisticated we talk about technology so I II I go there and I feel in some ways that I am in a place that is more America than America because their group of young people who are like Hey I have an idea and they just do it and it changes the world it is truly free market and and the ideas are so exciting and they're so big I mean they're talking about changing the world it's it's dynamic. where are those people on our side where are the people we are good at articulating I mean I I kind of came to a place. Arthur I I if I could do my whole career over again yeah what would you do you. I would be I would be like you know they start playing the French horn not making a real. no check out a call for you I you know I was the what thirty fourth most admired man the year I went to fox from CNN you know let's do a eighty eight people yeah I was tied with the pope and Nelson Mandela okay that's crazy raise I love America. the commercial for America here yeah yeah yeah yeah so I bought it for you but. so when I went to when I went to fox saying the same thing it all changes and I became this political figure. politics is at the back end of the dog. and not the front end and you are pigeon holed into something that is is ugly and grotesque and I kind of came just recently to to the feeling that we you know we all have we all have our own gifts and we all have our own positions and I've not liked mine whom mine has been warned people and I hate that I grew up in an alcoholic family I don't like conflict I mean look at me I'm it yesterday were dragging me through the mud saying that I said that the you know Muslims attack no drama which is the exact opposite of what I said you know I'm old ways in the center of conflict and I hate it. but my role is to warn people on what's coming right your role is to help us out and say here's the path forward so what is it that we say to our friends what is it that we have to change. you know point to the the the bright horizons right and say look at this person look at what's happened here look what's happening here where where is our course our course is self improvement the American religion that you are the master of yourself and that's what that were on the cusp of reviving this happens a couple times a century the United States it hasn't happened for a while we're really really right for it and and look you and I are in the same business because you are a self improvement guy you are a man of the revolution of the individual heart after you know the end of the nineteenth century when in America was beaten doubts civil war tons of poverty financial crises polarization populism kinda like now except worse in most ways because were much poorer country that's when the self improvement revolution really swept across this country what that was was entrepreneurship of each person the start up of each life and that's what we really need to bring a culture back of hearing you if you want people to stop the the one young people on campus to stop talking about socialism you have to help them understand that they are the master of their feelings and their the master of their fate which is empowering it's encouraging its aspirational in it and here's the best part it's true it's it's why Jordan Peterson is so pop that's why Jordan Peterson is popular by the way that you think that you're just Ezekiel you know your beer I'm profits like you know the end is near that's not true you know what you're you're encouraging person you want what I want you I it into religion I'm washing for years and years CNN fox and and since you've been on your own in this incredible entrepreneurial venture your aspirational person because you believe in the goodness of this country and you believe that everybody listening to us everybody who's on the other side of these mikes they they're they're true entrepreneurs with their own lives to that the true enterprise of life in America is each person listening to us and we we can get back that culture then then we're off to the races and that's what I want. start and I think we're a man I think we're on the edge of it are written this I read this book called the pursuit I'm sorry the movies the person I wrote love your enemies which came out one month ago love your enemies Matthew five forty four it's how you can be an entrepreneur by loving your enemies and one of the best seller list you know that's that's very encouraging to me because people are hungry for it so the people are listening to us okay what are you gonna do what's your opportunity somebody's gonna treat with contempt with nastiness your opportunities to treat people with love okay stand by we're get get get into that in specifics here in just a second..

"To be a target this is at the American enterprise institute thanks for time I purchased thank you yet another indicator today that the after effects of the grounding of the Boeing seven thirty seven MAX aren't done trickling down through this economy Southwest Airlines said this morning it's going to speed up its consolidation at LaGuardia airport in New York shut things down at Newark because to quote selfless your Gerry Kelly it's really all about the Max it's the only issue Kelly said the FAA says there is no timeline for getting the Max back in the air and while Gerry Kelly has said he is empathetic to bones problems he's got his own company in her own right said researcher and chilling group to have a five part series out in the Harvard Business Review right now about the thing at the heart really of what is going on with Boeing and a lot of other companies in this economy the series is called broken trust thank you both for being here thank you thank you Sir let me start with you and ask you what might seem like a foundational question but I think it has to be asked how do companies earn trust to begin with and I and I realize there's lots of layers to trust but you know give me the elevator pitch Sir of first place you have to ask who is doing the trusting and so companies are trusted by customers by employees by investors of by the public by regulators and so they're always being charged but they really do have to have an attitude that I really want to be trusted by each of these groups but each one of these groups once a different thing for me and so I've got to figure out how I'm going to make that work that's exactly right socially let me ask you if I am a consumer of Facebook shall we say I want something different from Facebook then a Facebook shareholder once right Facebook sure older ones maximization of profits in a rising share price the consumer wants well first of all you know pictures of relatives and you know high school friends all this jazz but but also protection of data and not to be advertised too much and and and all of that that's exactly the tricky bit that companies are facing they have to balance all of these different needs to the classic case that Sandra night like two years to illustrate the trust problem is over for example so we trust you over to get us from point a to point B. right but on the other hand we don't feel good about it and the reason we feel so conflicted about it over is you know we don't feel great about how they treat their employees there is all the stuff coming out about what they've done to their competitor left and using really unfair tactics and so the point is it over is still in business we still use them because we trust them to be confident but you were has also suffered some some major losses like on it was pounded because all the news about the scandals came out lift started growing at twice the rate which it which has been to actually something I thought was really interesting in this series center which was the the popular conception out there and I admit I have it is that the trust the people in regulators everybody having corporations is fragile you to say in fact it's quite robust yeah that was I think for us the biggest all hall of the research we've done which is we all have this idea that trust is fragile that once lost it can never be regained but let me tell you a story about a company the completely proves why that's not true okay so the computer company so name is recruit holdings they are a huge at this point giant tech firm in Japan now in the late nineteen eighties of their founders started a scandal that was so large that the prime minister of Japan and his entire cabinet all had to resign their positions so the way that they went about this was that they went back to their customers and they admitted for that happened and they told the truth about what it was that they have done and how it was that they've learned from this about the kind of company they wanted to be so you can definitely get it back but it's not like it's easy to do that you know you have to do the kinds of things that a company like recruited well let me turn you now than showing to another company in the news a completely different topic completely different line of work Boeing witches had as we know a very rough six or eight months because of those two crashes of the seven thirty seven Max and we get now to the to the area of apology and getting trust back you to write the Dennis Malberg this CEO of of Boeing did not do a good job we shall say it in his apology tour as it were that's putting it lightly yeah well I was I was I was being gentle but okay he he did a terrible job in the apology how how bad was it and canned Boeing recover from this and I should tell you just for the record he would try to Mister Malone we're gonna talk about this and and Boeing has declined politely but anyway so so can Boeing or cover what are they doing I. next get past this line to Sandra because phone service today yep so we are Boeing the reason why the apology but is so awful virtue big thing this one is it really didn't focus on the people who they harmed and so if you've done something where more than chicken of three hundred people lose their lives in two airplane crashes the very first thing the public wants to hear is that you are so unbelievably sorry the second step is to tell the truth about what happened and so the problem with Boeing is that you've got all these investigative reporters finding all kinds of things now that automatically is going to be in that you don't think you can trust them because if they're not going to tell the truth about what they did wrong how do you know that they know what they did wrong or that they could even fix it trust can be kind of amorphous right show how do you define it I guess just as as a way to wrap this up so trust is actually a willingness to make yourself vulnerable to the behaviors and intentions of one other person or company and all of these companies we've been talking about they have indoor miss power over all of the stake holders that depend on them and so that's why trust is so important it's why we care about it so much it's because we've given this power away and we want to make sure that it's being used well center Sucher Angeline got the at the Harvard Business School a five part series on trust in.

Dean Phillips' case for a carbon fee to tackle climate change

Dean Phillips' case for a carbon fee to tackle climate change

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy, initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs. Bank of America NA member FDIC, Representative Phillips, let's start with the nuts and bolts of the proposed carbon dividend act. What would it accomplish will Pol it's going to accomplish what I think we need most which is to provide incentives and disincentives, and then let the market move us to where we want to go which is to reduce CO two emissions and migrate to a clean energy economy. There seems to be universal agreement on that. And the notion that I'm co-sponsoring is the energy innovation and carbon dividend act. And it would put a price on carbon which is actually a bipartisan notion, I want people to know that the Genesis is as much Republican as it is democratic and in this case, we're proposing a fifteen dollar per ton fee on. Carbon and that would be entirely returned that the proceeds which could be about eighty billion dollars in the first year. I would be returned holy to taxpayers to the tune of about a thousand dollars per year for each family, and it and and the cost of fossil fuel products would rise as a result. For example, a gallon of gasoline may go up about thirteen cents based on the fee in the first year again that money's returned in the form of a dividend to all taxpayers, and it's a way to start putting a disincentive on further fossil fuel use and migrate to clean energy. I it's a simple notion. It's a market base notion. It does not grow government, and it reduces our carbon emissions, and that is exactly the type of policy thoughtful bipartisan policy that I think we need. So here's a clip from your press release quote carbon dividend trust fund for the American people to encourage market-driven innovation clean, energy technologies and market. Efficiencies. So we create this fund is your proposal. And then the money goes into that fund. What are some examples than of how that fun would be used to drive more technology that could help lower greenhouse gas emissions? So so pollen in this case all the money in this proposal that I'm co-sponsoring all the dollars would go back to American citizens. And and that's what's unique about it. It does not grow government. And it does not provide more dollars to federal programs, for example, and and those dollar what people do with those dollars of courses up to them. I of course, I think it will spur investment, and it will create a number of millions of perhaps over two million green energy jobs, but it's not a trust fund to benefit any thing or anybody other than tax payers right now. Now, I will say I'm also giving some thought to whether or not we should modestly increase that that fee and direct some of the proceeds to an infrastructure Bill as you might know. Speaker Pelosi and mature minority leader Schumer met with President Trump in the White House this week, they agreed on a two trillion dollar infrastructure plan that right now has no funding. And I think this could be an interesting way to accomplish both because we surely need both you mentioned by partisan support. Do you think you'll get the necessary votes to get this through and perhaps make it law? We'll tell you Paul nothing as you. Well know, nothing is easy and congress, but that's a challenge that I'm taking seriously, and and very optimistic about and this is a unique Bill in that it has a number of cosponsors everyone from Barbara Lee who is one of the more progressive members of the democratic caucus to Francis Rooney the Republican from Florida, it's a notion that the American Enterprise Institute, the conservative think tank supports and even supported by George Shultz and Howard Baker former secretaries of state who devised a very similar plan with their group called the climate leadership council and it. Is it is remarkably bipartisan, and it's one that I think I think it is the most likely to generate support on both sides of the aisle. But like anything else it has to be sold. It has to be promoted, and we not just those in congress. But we in our communities have to start promoting the solution to one another. We're going to build a consensus to get it done. We've seen tremendous progress Representative Phillips in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the electric power sector. We see Minnesota producing twenty five percent of our electric power from renewable 's it seems like the biggest opportunity now for further reductions is in transportation, how does America achieve similar reductions in the transportation sector over the next decade? Why favor first of all I favor. Notions li-. I think we should have a prominent very innovative high speed rail network in the United States our competitors around the world have surpassed us broadly. So doing would significantly reduce emissions and also. Provide a very high speed very connected America too many who right now don't have access to transportation. And then this this notion of pricing carbon begins it provides disincentive to consume fossil fuel. So it will in theory, reduce force both businesses and individuals to look for more efficient, modes of transportation. And this is this is a way to begin the migration. It is not a mandate. It is not an iron fist at a simply putting a price on something that has a significant cost to us now in an extraordinary cost down the road. And that's because it's market based the market should figure it out. And I'm a believer in that. And it will so ill do the same in transportation. I'm curious about the political winds in the Republican party in Washington DC, some of your colleagues in the congress, we hear some people voicing more support and more understanding that these extreme weather events. On the rise. And that that's turning costly for us. Do you sense that even behind the scenes, what will your colleagues say to you in terms of how they are viewing the current climate change situation and how we might be impacted by that going forward. We'll pollen it's becoming undeniable. And if people wish to argue the reasons why they can do so, but it is time that we acknowledged truth. We'd take some bold stands, and I can tell you in my private conversations with of course, democratic colleagues in an increasing number of my thoughtful Republican colleagues, you know, we acknowledge what's going on. And it is affecting deeply effecting American communities throughout the country from the heartland to the coasts, and it's real I'm sure that in no small part Francis, Rooney from Florida, the Republican from Florida is supporting this notion because he sees what's happening in his state with that said it takes leadership, and it takes consensus to get this done. I in and my hope is that our Republican colleagues. Start lining up to support something that again has some has Republican Genesis, and that means pricing carbon and letting the market take charge. That is actually the way we build bridges and congress and throughout this country. So I'm hopeful we're not there yet. But it's these conversations both on the airwaves in neighborhoods and called the sank. So we have to start having. Let's talk about opportunity a change even climate change can sometimes bring opportunity one example, this jobs, boom that we've seen with renewable energy could climate change solutions. Be our next economic moonshot. I think there's no question. Some studies indicate that if we pass this Bill the energy innovation and carbon dividend act that that could spur over two million new jobs. I think that will be happening anyway because we are migrating. The good news is we have thoughtful enterprises around the country. Excel energy is taking a bold stand to invest in renewables in no small part because we provided in. Enters over the last number of years for them to do the same thing. So I do I think I think we're on path. And I think there's an opportunity here that every state whether it's a red state or blue state can recognize that not only will these green energy jobs be more prevalent, but they will be high paying jobs, and if we can create a thoughtful strategy as Americans to provide the right training to young people to enter this enter these new jobs that are created everybody wins, and there is a way to do. So and I can tell you also as a new member of congress I've been very pleased with the clergy -ality between members of both sides of the aisle, especially in our freshman class. And I think there's a new ethos a new spirit, and I think over time we are going to join hands and build a better economy and most importantly, reduce our emissions and preserve our planet for children, grandchildren. We're seeing shifts in climate change opinion. Now, Yale and George Mason study says now that six in ten Americans are either concerned or alarmed. About climate change. What do you hear from Minnesotans about the desire for climate change action? I hear every day from people throughout our state. Not just in my district that this is important to them. And I'll tell you who's making the most difference in congress right now. It's young people. We see young people from middle schoolers through high school and college students in the halls of congress all the time coming to our offices and making very impassioned pleas that we do something. And that makes me optimistic you know, Minnesotans have taken have taken conservation seriously for many years, we we love our environment. It is not political. And I think Minnesota can be a real bellwether state for the rest of the country in in leading that change. But as Americans we are very good at often pointing out at least from a policy perspective where we're quite adept at pointing out problems now is the time for solutions. And I'm one who wants to listen to any solutions. I don't care what the Genesis is Minnesotans are the same way. We listened to the. Ideas, we tend to implement them. And I think we I hope the country will look to us and I wanted to be a leader. And that's my intention. We have a lot of successful fortune five hundred companies based in Minnesota, and I've interviewed several executives from those companies take a company like general mills it's been around for one hundred and fifty years and they used to produce their grain by milling with power from the Mississippi River and they're moving forward on climate solutions. We see this with a lot of companies, in fact, that momentum seems to be much stronger than the momentum in Washington. Is there a disconnect there, and do you think your colleagues that have been reluctant are seeing these corporations move forward and his that possibly an example for them. They there's a disconnect pollen and I recognize it as well. And I've spoken with a number of CEO's of our state's largest enterprises and reminded them of of not just their responsibility. But the opportunity that exists for them to influence policy makers, and that's happening. And I could the list of. American corporations and multinational corporations that support the notion of pricing carbon would surprise a lot of people, including some of the biggest energy companies. So that is a massive opportunity. And by by the way, that's part of a bigger conversation about business being the sources a source of solutions for this country and not the source of problems. And you know, I wanna see this country move to compassionate capitalism, and what a wonderful and beautiful way to start with affecting climate change policy. And I do see the day coming and I'm speaking with a number though, CEO's both here and around the country, and I'm hoping we can mobilise finally the house passed a Bill I believe this week that would keep the US in the Paris agreement. What are the chances of that given the landscape of the Senate and the White House these days while given the landscape of the Senate and the White House? Unfortunately, the answer is unlikely and it's appalling, the the United States of America should be not just at the table, Paul. We should be leading that is the America in which I grew up. It is what I aspire to. And I will say though that the the power to proceed if you will really lies in in the hands of of every American to remind the representatives, not just in Washington, but in their own state houses that this is important, and that's the that's the type of American leadership. I want to reconstitute realestate. And I I do think we're going to get there. I don't think in this congress because of the circumstances in the Senate and the White House, but over time we shall this is a statement of principles. That's the statement of the democratic party's principles that this is important, and I also see foresee that climate change and addressing it with thoughtful policy is going to be one of the big drivers of the twenty twenty election. I hope it is deserves to be because I think it's an existential threat and not just to this nation, but surely to the entire world US house district. Three Representative dean Phillips. Thank you for your perspective on climate cast today. Thank you very much.

U.S. Worker Productivity Advances at Best Rate Since 2010

"We had best begins today. I think with the definition worker productivity is the metric of the day and in very basic terms. It is the number of widgets produced per hour worked. I mentioned it because we learned this morning in the first quarter of the year productivity rose at the fastest pace since two thousand fourteen inserts caveat here about quarterly numbers bouncing around a lot. But generally speaking, we are seeing increased productivity now that is weird because more productivity usually leads to higher wages, which really isn't happening at the Richard think, and sometimes it can lead to inflation, which is definitely not happening. So what gives marketplace's Tracey Samuelson hopped into a metaphorical boat to explain. Picture crew team. Two. One jumping eight rowers workers and a manager the Cox in on each trip. Aparna matter is an economist at the American Enterprise Institute, she says if you want the boat to go faster, the owner could maybe get those rowers some better ores or faster boat. It's the same number of people in abode, but having access to tools just makes the board go that much faster, or maybe the owner could figure out some way to improve results ro faster without a big investment. Dean Baker is at the center for economic and policy research and tight labor market. Employers have incentive to try to Condomi's on labor. They have an incentive to figure out the reorganized their workplace to be more efficient Baker says if companies can produce more with the same workers, they don't have to compete to hire new workers in a tight labor market, which often means paying more and those companies can absorb the modest wage increases. We have been seeing without raising prices, which may help explain why inflation is so low can Kutner is an economist at Williams College. We tend to even flation as. Happening when people are trying to buy more stuff than is being produced. If you get a raise, and you have extra money to spend that increased demand for goods can push prices up. But if you want to buy more stuff at the same time that the economy is making more stuff, they think it's the balance between those two that is preventing inflation from rising, but if wage gains started to really outpaced productivity growth, that's when you start to worry more about inflation.

"Four year here. We're going to go over William buyer attorney general in congress speaking before the Senate Judiciary committee Democrats, making fools out of themselves bars, basically running circles around the mainly because he's not adult and this entire charade where William bar. The attorney general is supposed to be some sort of corrupt actor covering for Donald Trump's guilt on obstruction of Justice. It's just asinine. The report is publicly available. There is no cover up. What the hell? Are you all talking about that in just a second? Plus a little bit later on in the show. We're going to be getting to Arthur Brooks, he's going to be joining us from the American Enterprise Institute will ask him about Venezuela. We'll ask him about the state of domestic politics as well. And we will be talking about a city Denver which now wants to give homeless folks the rights to camp anywhere in the city. Can't see how that goes wrong. But let's get direct to the actual testimony by William bar in these. Senate Judiciary committee today. So click forty-three William Barr says correctly that the intense focus on his summary of the report is mind, bending -ly. Bizarre. This is obviously true. So the fact is that if you remember the time line Muller turned in his report to William bar William bar, then a few days later issued a four page letter over the weekend, he should four page letter summarising, the findings no collusion, and he says in the letter that Muller had not said whether from should be prosecuted on obstruction. He declined to make a recommendation on prosecution, but in his view, there was no evidence sufficient to lend itself to a successful prosecution in that case. And then a few weeks later the entire report is released. And so we all see it now. And nothing bar said was a lie. Nothing bar said was untrue. And yet Democrats eager to suggest that secretly secretly. Even though Muller didn't recommend prosecution secretly Muller wanted to recommend prosecution and William bar secretly decided that he was going to question on behalf of the various from administration, and that he then released a letter that undercut the conclusions of the report, which is now publicly available, and we can all read which didn't have to do by the way, never release

He's funny. But I like I'm a huge fan of move. I don't know why. No, Albert, Einstein is real name. Shut up. I'm kidding. I'm not kidding you. It's Albert kidding. You're not kidding promise. I'm not kidding in. What happened is he changed to Albert Brooks? Because he you're not gonna go into show business Albert. You should change your name, Albert Einstein. I should say my arthritis. People will call. All right. So Arthur, you have a new documentary out, and I have seen. It is really good. Really good are. We were talking the other day about Buddha judge, and he is the the he's playing the nice guy. Right. He may be a nice guy. Don't know anything about him other than you know, what you read about any seems like a really nice normal guy guy comes out and says, yeah, I'm gay, and you know, what I also eat chick fillet. I like it. Right. And it's it's a guy who's coming out. Now and saying, you know, I I don't hate everybody. You're supposed to hate that fighting fire with water and that usually works generally does particularly after a period of of hate polarization. The the reason that that actually can work right now is because ninety three percent of Americans say they hate how divided we become a country and every single person listening to us right now love somebody with whom they disagree politically. But there's a class that's getting rich and powerful and famous largely in politics. Media on campuses saying you gotta hate people who do you disagree with their deviant? They're stupid. They're evil in our hearts. We know that's wrong in this movie. You talked about in the pursuit this movie. We sit down with people who call themselves democratic socialists. They're awesome people the great people that they love their fellow men and women I have different policy ideas. I think I have better ways to get their objectives. But they're aren't wrong and most people know that and so Pete put a judge in a few other people are actually going are are they're trying to rage against the contempt machine in this country by saying you want something better the product is crummy. I'm going to give it to you. We'll win it even get past the people who are making an awful lot of money on outrageous real complex. Yeah. Yeah. We don't know. Here's a here's a clip of the pursuit. I.

"So Arthur Brooks, he is the president of the American Enterprise Institute. He is also leaving there to become a professor at Harvard. God bless you, man. And he's a producer of a new documentary called the pursuit, and it's all about the free market system. It is something that everyone should be watching. And especially if you have people who are democratic socialist or socialist or your kids in college, they should watch this. It has the heart that the free market system should have when we're selling it. It's not all Faxon and statistics, it has a lot in. However, it is really more about lifting people up from poverty, and it comes out in a few weeks. Yeah. Does well in showing all over the country right now. So it's in screenings in about one hundred communities, we're in three international. Film festivals. It'll be on digital platforms starting this summer. And it'll be on Netflix starting in August. Oh, wow. Yeah. Yeah. I'm so happy about that. My whole career has been dedicated to trying to lift people up toward equal dignity, and the limitless potential that people actually have the free enterprise system exists. And the reason we should fight for it is only because of that it's not for us. You know, it's not for for Stu and Glennon, Arthur because we're very lucky people were prosperous people. And and the truth is we could prosper under system socialism. I don't want to it wouldn't be fair wouldn't be right. But we could who who needs capitalism who needs free enterprise, the people who are still at the perfect our society. We gotta fight for them. The next two billion people they need us. And when I talk about this film is how you with with proper regulation, obviously with morals because. You can't have markets without morals. If you do they'll be ruined the ruined everything. And if you have these things than you can be a force for goodness in the world and showing that bringing people together listening to everybody what a joy, it was to make this picture. So Arthur, let me ask you. Let me ask you this. We are sitting in a really interesting time, as you know, that I was not for Donald Trump. To put it mildly in the last very vocal about that. I have I've watched him. And I still have the same concerns that I've always had on many fronts on other fronts. He has done what he said he would do or more, for instance, on Israel. It's been crazy. He's also done things that I thought he would do and frighten me like the the trade barrier. Right. We have. When it comes to this next election. If I am faced with one of these social Democrats or one of these people that are even dancing around the edges of saying, you know. Yeah. Well, we gotta get rid of the free market system. You know, eventually, I mean, I I know who I'm going to vote for how do we square this with? With what we're facing because what we're facing is the end of the west and America, as we know it we've had threatened threats from socialism forever in this country. It always comes back. Maybe in the nineteen thirties. Yeah. Nineteen thirties. But after every financial crisis it comes. And so if you see after the eighteen ninety s to financial crises that were just hard core. Eighteen ninety to nineteen Ninety-six silver busters railroad bus just as bad as what we saw in two thousand eight worse as a matter of fact, and you got William Jennings. Bryan was this left-wing populace to also was anti immigration anti trade and all the stuff that we don't like populism both, right and left. This always comes around. And this is always our opportunity for those of us who believe in the promises of democratic capitalism to lift at the world, you gotta look at these times. And you say this is an opportunity. Look, you're the quintessential entrepreneur not just in media in a bunch of businesses because you believe that when you look around you say something's not right? That's an opportunity to build something. Good and true. So if we look at the idea Konomi today, we say all these people all these young people say the capitalism is a sham that socialism is a better as a better system. You've got people running for. President you have leaders in congress were espousing democratic socialism. That's our opportunity because that's when the conversation is right. So I look at this. And I say man, I am so lucky to be alive right now. I'm releasing a movie on major digital platforms that talks about how capitalism is a beautiful system for helping the poor. It couldn't be better timed and all of us can do that. Glenn Beck is an apostle for democratic capitalism. And you're gonna get a better bigger audience listening to the fact that you believe in global brotherhood not in global profit. And that's the reason that you stand behind the free enterprise system. It's a look there will be bad things happen. I got it. But there's going to be good things that happen to and let's focus on all the good things that we can make happen. So how do we? How do we make the impact? How do you have the conversations because because quite honestly, I feel when I go to Silicon Valley, and I know what Silicon Valley is. But. A lot. And you talk about your very sophisticated talk about technology. So I go there, and I feel in some ways that I am in a place that is more America than America because their group of young people who are like, hey, I have an idea, and they just do it. And it changes the world it is truly free market. And the ideas are so exciting, and they're so big. I mean, they're talking about changing the world. It's it's dynamic. Where are those people on our side? Where are the people? We are good. At articulating. I mean, I kind of came to a place. Arthur, I if I could do my whole career over again. Yeah. What would you do you? I would be I would be like you start by playing the French horn and not making your own. Kicked out of college. I you know, I was the what third or fourth most admired man the year. I went to FOX from CNN, you know, that that's a people. I was tied with pope and Nelson Mandela, that's crazy. I don't know. This is a commercial for America here. So. Voted for you. So when I went to when I went to FOX saying the same thing, it all change, and I became this political figure politics is at the back end of the dog. And not the front end, and you are pigeonholed into something that is is ugly and grotesque, and I kind of came just recently too to the feeling that we, you know, we all have we all have our own gifts, and we all have our own positions. And I've not liked mine. Mine has been warn people. And I hate that we're up an alcoholic family. I don't like conflict. I mean, look at me. I'm yesterday dragging me through the mud saying that I said that, you know, Muslims attack Notre Dom, which is the compasses of what I said, you know, I'm always in the centre of conflict, and I hate it. But my role is to warn people on what's coming, right. Your role is to help us out and say, here's the path forward. So what is it that we say to our friends, what is it that we have to change? You know point to the the bright horizons and say look at this person look at what's happening here. Look what's happening here. Where's our course? Our course is self-improvement than Merican religion that you are the master of yourself. And that's what we're on the cusp of reviving this happens a couple times a century the United States it hasn't happened for a while. We're really really right for it. And look you and I are in the same business because you are a self-improvement guy. You are a man of the revolution of the individual heart after the end of the nineteenth century when you America was beaten civil war tons of poverty, financial crises polarization, populism kinda like now except worse in most ways because we were much poorer country. That's when the self-improvement revolution really swept across this country. And what that was was entrepreneurship of each person the startup of each life. And that's what we really need to bring a culture back of hearing. If you want people. To stop. They want young people in campuses to stop talking about socialism. You have to help them are the master of their feelings and their the master of their fate, which is empowering it's encouraging if aspirated and here's the best part. It's true. It's america. It's why Jordan Peterson so pop. That's why Jordan Peterson is popular by the way that you think that you're just Zeke, he'll, you know, your your profits. Like, you know, the end is near. That's not true. You know, your courage in person when I watch you a real issue number watching for years and years CNN FOX, and since you've been on your own this incredible entrepreneurial venture, your aspirational person because you believe in the goodness of this country. And you believe that everybody listening to us everybody who's on the other side of these mics, they they're they're triggers their own lives to the true enterprise of life in America is each person listening to us, and we we can get back that culture, then then we're off to the races. And that's what I wanna start. And I think we're man I think were on the edge of. I've written. I read this book called the pursuit started the movies the pursuit. I wrote love your enemies, which came out one month ago. Love your enemies, Matthew five forty four. It's how you can be an entrepreneur by loving, your enemies. It went on the best seller list. That's that's very encouraging to me because people are homegrown for it. So the people are listening to us. Okay. What are you going to do? What's your paternity? Somebody's gonna treat you with contempt with nastiness your opportunities to treat people with love case standby get into that in specifics.

Why the 2019 Indian election feels different to 2014

"Today. We chat with one of the world's leading communists about India richer Shama from Morgan Stanley. He's argument is that in rural India old class divisions. Still rule local politics which could spell trouble for Narendra Modi in my elections, plus climate change student politics, a divide between two impressive school students. Stay with us for that. Well, you might recall Narendra Modi's landslide election victory five years ago. How to believe but twenty four nine huge landslide election victory Ahmadi. Now, we lived the BJP this is the Hindu nationalist party live them to power. This was the first Indian prime minister in thirty years to govern without a coalition any Hedda rare opportunity to enact market friendly reforms that had stalled under his predecessor Manmohan Singh now until relatively recently Modi's BJP was odds on favorite to be reelected. But such as the magic politics that Modi's chances of victory. And now fifty fifty says, my guest richer Shama is chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley investment management. And he's author of a terrific new book called democracy on the road at twenty five year journey through India as just out by penguin Random House richer. Welcome back to between the lines Gregory back with your own thing. What do you think Modi's? Reelection is no longer a sure thing I think that when I wrote the book, and he was coming across a very United opposition. You just mentioned about how you wanna landslide victory in two thousand fourteen but one very important statistic. From that election was that he only or his party only got thirty one percent of the total vote share in India, and he was able to win a majority of the seats because the parliamentary democracy is so fag minted in India that the opposition is quite divided and you get a disproportionate number of seats with even thirty percent of the vote. So what was changing over the Bosnia? Is that a lot of the opposition parties in India state by state were coming together to put up a United front against that removes? That's really what was changing and why at taught is fog ability or winning the election was now much more fifty fifty than sort of hundred percent probably than most bookies were giving him. I'd say. Euro even to ago now, the only thing which has changed, and this is the changing nature of politics and any country, especially in India is the last couple of weeks they've had this escalated tension between India and Pakistan, and that's sort of please into Modi's hand. So I would say that once again, the the momentum has shifted back in his favor. Just because of the very unexpected develop in that taking place over the past few weeks, the accidents of history we've had on this program. Several times of the last five years, Richard Soudan, undo my from the American Enterprise Institute, you know, and he said that in two thousand fourteen there was an ABC mood that is anybody, but congress this is the the left of center ruling party for so long in India's history. You don't really see an anti Mody y emerging. Then do you know, I think if election is not about that his base remains pretty much intact. But I said the big difference that the opposition is coming together in many states. I'm critical battleground states such as the most populous state of India with really two hundred million people in such critical states the opposition is coming together. And when they do that, then typically the the leading party tends to be in trouble. That's the history of Indian politics. So that to me is the big dynamic at currently. Yes. So in a way, you're saying that these elections in my they more likely to shape up as a series of state contests. It's not really a nationwide contest between Mody and congress is it. That's right know, that the outside world likes to think of it that way because the two names that sort of resonate most with the outside world. I I now in the Gumby dine in but it's important to member that booties. Put together the total vote share in. India is Bailey fifty percent five zero. And so the other half is about all these regional parties in India. And that's really what I've tried to bring out in my book, which that this is the story of many India's India's less a country that our continent like the European Union with many states Funk's practically functioning like countries. And I think that that is the story of India which gets lost in translation to the outside world often. Now, this new book of yours democracy on the road. It's the result of your travels through India following election campaigns, pretty much since the lighten awning ninety south of the last twenty years, and you Rauch quote in an era when democracy is said to be in retreat worldwide, it's thriving in India. Yeah. That's the curse of the fact that when I've traveled for these elections, I find it soon remarkable that despite only advantages that the incumbent

Trump delays increase in Chinese tariffs

Trump delays increase in Chinese tariffs

"First another day of reckoning in the US China trade war today was supposed to be the deadline for China to shape up if not the Trump administration would increase tariffs on more than six thousand types of Chinese imports. But President Trump is backing off. He's delayed new round of tariffs and says, quote substantial progress is being made in negotiations with China. Here's more from the world's Jason Margolis, the art of the deal again, or maybe not this time not with China says, economists, Derrick scissors, the idea that we're going to get the greatest deal ever, the greatest you'll ever is not going to pan out and it's going to blow up in his face. Meaning if Trump runs for president in two thousand twenty he'll have some explaining to do and a democratic candidate will be quoting candidate Trump in two thousand sixteen over and over again about how China's He actually said the words they're raping our country. We can't continue to allow China to rape our country, and that's what they're doing. And then. On sunday. He said we had the best relationship we've ever had China. It's very difficult to see how things have changed in the last two years or two and scissors focuses on the Chinese economy at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, he just doesn't see what the Trump administration has been able to get from the Chinese that other administrations haven't, for example, one major sticking point in US. China relations has been the forced transfer of technology where American companies hand over intellectual property in order to do business in China. Trump has said that's coming to an end, the Chinese, of course, have said, they've never course technology transfer. It's all voluntary. So them writing a law that says course, technology transfer. It doesn't do anything with the issue after issue. The Chinese are making the same old promises. He says as they have many times in the past. We have known for some mechanism as we have not had in the past. And none of those promises are gonna come to fruition. But let's say President Trump does turn out to be the master negotiator. He says he is can you turn the ship around for decades? U S China trade has worked this way. China builds it we buy it. It's hard to imagine all of this being resolved right away, economists, Katie Russ at the university of California Davis says if Trump really wanted to put pressure on China, if you want to have the quickest results, then joined TPP, the trans Pacific partnership that twelve nation trade agreement brokered by President Obama, Russ says, it would have shifted trade away from China to other countries that maybe we feel more. Close strategic alliances with but President Trump withdrew from that seventy two hours into his presidency and said the US would pursue bilateral trade agreements. Instead, of course, Trump wasn't the only one opposed to the TPP labor unions, and many Democrats worried that it could cost American jobs so back to China. Trump needs a deal a few days ago. He said talks are going very well and highlighted China's commitment to buy American corn corn, but a lot of it more than anyone thought possible. Welcome news in Illinois, the nation's second leading corn producer. I asked senior economist Mike Dougherty with the Illinois farm bureau, if he had any details on Trump's corn plan, we don't and it's being treated as well. It's possible. But we'll wait and see it protects happen. Illinois is also the nation's top soya producer, China is number one export market. But this season's export has been a bust in retaliation for Trump's tariffs last summer. China slap tariffs on US. Soybeans of that crop were about forty percent under where we normally would be at internal sales to China. Dorothy says more corn sales to China won't offset this. They don't sell much corn there. Many farmers do like Trump's overall economic policies, lower taxes fewer regulations still when it comes to trade. I asked dirty if Illinois farmers still believed in the president's message. We're not sure what exactly what that message is. What are we talking about in terms of long term payoff? I mean, we were a number one number two supplier out of the world to the Chinese market for supplying their soybeans. We could just get back to that. I think most of the farmers here would be pretty happy for the world. I'm Jason

"american enterprise institute" Discussed on WMAL 630AM

"At the American Enterprise Institute, and Michael you're just you just wrote in the Washington Examiner a week ago. Suggesting that Pakistan has now supplanted Iran as the leading state terror in the world. State sponsor of terror. I should say excuse me. Thanks for joining us what that was prescient epilepsy. This this this is a competition without winners, of course. But if you just look over the last month, you've had major terrorist attacks in Iran in Afghanistan, where more than one hundred Afghan soldiers were killed and then in India where forty Indians were killed and the one thing that all these terrorist attacks have in common is they were all sponsored by groups which are based in Pakistan. And now we see this story that emerged this morning Pakistan says it shot down these two Indian jets. They're holding one of the pilots right now. I guess as a hostage or prisoner of war. That's a huge escalation between these two nations. That is a huge escalation just a little bit of background Larry over the last three years. There have been seven cross-border attacks from Pakistan into India, which have cost mass mass casualties now starting about two years ago. The Indians responded for the first time by launching airstrikes into Pakistan, and that was pushing the red line. Beyond which had been pushed before. But the Indians basically said enough is enough. You can't continue to sponsor terrorism. Like this. Now, what's happened is India responded this time? Most people think India was responding a little bit symbolically they were bombing. But they weren't going after buildings and so forth. They were just showing that they they were angry. And then it seems that something that one of their aircraft crashed. And so this is ramping up. Tensions supposedly prime minister. Modi India's leader has left his national security emergency meeting and said the army can do whatever the army thinks is necessary to do. Yeah. But just remember, of course, both India and Pakistan are nuclear powers rigs. Exactly. And of course, this goes back to the nineteen forties Pakistan after India declared its independence from Great Britain the United Kingdom, I should say Pakistan, then carved itself out because they wanted to be a predominantly Muslim nation. And they really haven't had peace effort really since. Then there's always factions warring factions across the border there aren't there. I've traveled a lot in Pakistan and the mazing thing about traveling in Pakistan. It's Pakistanis having unique ability to start wars with India and convinced. Themselves that the Indians were the ones that. And we've seen this repeatedly over the years in the six starting off from the beginning in the sixties, and so on now we've had India and Pakistan almost come to blows before most famously. I think it was back in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight when the Clinton administration negotiated them back from the brink the point is this. However, it's all well and good to negotiate the two big power back from the brink. But if Pakistan if we still keep turning a blind eye to Pakistan and its support for terror that's a problem in in one other thing most people don't realize India is, of course, the world's largest moxie, and it's about to be the world's largest country by population. If only ten percent of India, we're educated and middle class that would be the population of Pakistan when you talk to Pakistanis there on a trajectory to failure India's on a trajectory to success, and this is making Pakistan, all the more, desperate. So how does this get resolved? I mean, this is an active. War. If if we're to believe the headlines suggested is a possible that these two planes crashed instead of got shut down or one of them crashed in the other one then got shot down. Or is that still murky right now, it's still murky and we're find out what happened. But no matter what happened, especially if the Pakistanis have an Indian pilot. That's a serious issue. Now, just one caveat when it comes to Kashmir this disputed area when Pakistan carved itself out from India the way it worked was basically you could join India, a multi-ethnic multi-religious, democracy or Pakistan land for the Muslims. And usually it was the head of the state each of the local states that got to decide the thing was in. Kashmir. The head of Kashmir was a Hindu. The majority of the population was Muslim. So the head the the head of customer said, you know, I want India, Pakistan, said no, fair and invaded. Kashmir. And so this disputed area has been divided ever since nineteen forty eight, but it's important to point out that the laws and the constitution and the way India goes about its business. A no way discriminatory against Muslims. Every there's there's no second-class citizens there. I mean, that's part of the culture, and it's part of their history. You're absolutely right. Larry most people don't really even realize that in terms of the largest Muslim countries in the world, the largest Muslim country in the world is of course, Indonesia second is India in India, isn't he? Yeah. Exactly. So what is America's interest in this? Click clearly we we have quite a bit of interest with both countries for different reasons. Again. I apologize historian by training, which means I get paid to predict the past, but initially when India and Pakistan divided the United States the Truman administration wanted to side with India, but India turned us down, and so he went to Pakistan instead of India wanted to go with non-aligned movement. Yeah. So it's like getting turned down by the pretty girl at the prom and then going on a date with someone else. Instead, so Pakistan's always had a complex now what the United States interest is we've been increasingly ever since the Bush administration, but under Obama as well cultivating. India we have much more in common with India Pakistan, of course, has supported the Taliban. We want to we want to tamper down Pakistan's extreme support for terrorism at the same time. We don't want them to become a failed state because their nuclear power. We want them to talk them back from the brink. But we don't want to throw India under the bus by giving concessions to. Terrorist sponsor, so I mean, given that it is complicated. If you're advising secretary of state Pompeii on this escalating situation. What's the advice? How to how do we or is there a place for us to intervene? You know, I'm not intervene, but to help resolve this. I'm not big on moral equivalents when the choice is between a terrorist sponsor, and the world's largest mock rec-, I say we have to come down solidly on India side, and we have to ensure that India has an even greater qualitative military edge every time Pakistan, launches a terror attack into India, we've got to bolster India's capability and at the same time, you know, enough with this diplomatic mumbo jumbo Pakistan is responsible for killing American troops in Afghanistan, Pakistan, hid, Osama bin Laden, and it's time we call Pakistan. What it is a state sponsor of terror. All right. Well, there you go. That's diplomatic you my in his residence scholar at the.
