Position of the balloon classified? Phil right now, what we're not going to do is get into an hour by hour location of the balloon again. We're monitoring it closely. As I mentioned right now, it's over the center of the continental United States. That's about as specific as I'm going to get. I understand by being convenient, but as the public not have a right to know the public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is. Yeah, because you can see balloons at 60,000. So you can tell us where Santa Claus says, but you can't tell us where the balloon is. I mean, this is just ridiculous nonsense. So one of the to me, one of the stunning things here is that's come out today is they've acknowledged that the Chinese have done these balloons before. And not just here in Guam over military targets in Hawaii over military targets. Apparently there's one in Canada, which is where we have our strategic early warning system. So is this supposed to reassure us? Right. And all of a sudden, why did they tell us? And here's blinken was going to China today. Now, can reassure me that the U.S. government didn't know that this overflight was happening. And they were sending blink in the China and hoping that nobody actually noticed it.

US downs Chinese balloon over ocean, moves to recover debris

"The U.S. government has downed that Chinese surveillance balloon off the coast of the Carolinas and is now working to analyze any debris that can be collected. Defense secretary Lloyd Austin says U.S. Military aircraft brought down the Chinese balloon over the Atlantic. Once the air space was cleared, adding it was too risky to shoot it down over land. President Biden had authorized the operation Wednesday, with the order to wait until the balloon was over water. Ships were deployed, hoping to scoop up as much debris as possible. Before it sank into the ocean. China claimed the balloon was for weather research, something The Pentagon is refuted. Former CIA analyst Gail helt says it looks to her. Like a fishing expedition by China. Better and more broad coverage dance, their spy satellites can. And they can also test how the United States is going to react. The controversy prompted the U.S. to cancel a weekend trip to Beijing by the Secretary of State. I'm Jackie Quinn

Binance and Mastercard Debut Prepaid Crypto Card in Brazil

"Well, binance and Mastercard have partnered to bring a prepaid crypto card to Brazil. The card is going to allow users to make payments using 13 different cryptos, including Bitcoin, ether, and binance USD, there are some fees associated with using the card. It's going to charge .9% per transaction and offer up to 8% back in crypto rewards, not the first time we've seen an exchange partner up with a big credit card company this time it's finance and Mastercard in Brazil will, I'm going to kick this one off to you. We spoke about South America recently, the government's getting together, trying to solve some of their fiscal issues. And now we have some crypto exchanges trying to address the same problems and maybe a different way. That's right, Jen, happy Monday morning. I think this is an interesting story because it talks about the privatization of money, right? Two companies, one and web two, really legacy product in Mastercard. And one, a web three binance coming together, trying to make something innovative for everyday people who just want to be able to move their money around for cheap, right? It's really the goal of all crypto moving my money around securely and cheaply. One interesting story about binance is a lot of people in different countries use binance just as our checking account. They open up an exchange portfolio and I count on there. It's really easy. If you're just on the United States, you just have to have an email address basically. And then you can add stablecoins, you can have Bitcoin Ethereum onto it. And then just swap around with your Friends, you can pay for stuff going to the store. Oftentimes people just trade between their binance accounts and keep tabs with that. And that's how they purchase things around town. It doesn't happen a lot in Western countries. And of course, binance is not allowed in the United States or binance itself binance U.S. does actively work with the United States, but binance as it does work in other countries doesn't really exist in Western countries, so we don't really think about this way. So it was just one interesting angle on it.

How the Government Incentivizes Women to Leave Their Men

"I do not believe that the feminist movement was in the best interest for women. It was in the best interest for the government. If they can get you out of the home, then it destroys the family, they can control you. When the families destroyed and control your kids, when you have to work slaving your husband slaving, they raising your kids. And then they make these laws conducive for you, right? They incentivize women to lead a man. Because you leave him, you got everything to gain and nothing to lose. You don't need him because you leave him. You gonna get the kids and he gonna pay you to live. With your new boyfriend. And if y'all would have never married, you still keep the kids, you incentivized to have the sleep with any man you want because it doesn't matter what he do, you get to keep the kids. So you don't have to marry him because you can get what you want out of him and you can keep the kids gonna move on with somebody else. The man don't And this is rare situations. But by and large, they do this, not because they care about the betterment of the kids. They don't care. They don't care. Nothing about your kids. They care about the family being divided and incentivizing women. It's just my opinion. And incentivizing women to not marry or to get out of marriage, or to go work on a job and let the government brainwash their kids.

The Godlessness in Our Society Puts Women in a Weird Position

"Let me just say this. I think that the godliness godlessness of our society put women in a weird position that was created to destroy our country and destroy the household and not advance. Let me give you an example. There's a concept of advancement that seems advancement seems like advancement to some, but when you look at it in reality, it's not advancement at all. If I were to go and give you a $1000, you would feel like that you become a richer person, you have more money. But if I don't give you that with the tools necessary or the education necessary to spend at a effectively, I'm not really helping you. I'm hurting you. And I believe that concept can happen with this whole movement of feminism. And empowering women quote, unquote, to be equal to men, not to be reached women's full potential in the country, but to be equal to men and my opinion was a thought from the enemy to hurt women not help women. Why do you say that mister Tatum? They didn't care about you as a woman when they were pushing feminism and pushing what they call women's rights. They were worried about the best interests of the government. Why do you say that, mister Tatum? Because if you weren't working, you weren't paying taxes. But they want to force you on a job so you can leave the home, destroy the family, go work on a job so they can get double the tax.

A report from the government accountability office says navy ships are getting fewer steaming hours because of growing maintenance delays and cost. The trend comes at a time when the U.S. is struggling to keep pace with China's growing fleet, operating and support costs grew by about $2.5 billion across ten ship classes, while the number of propulsion hours in which ships were operating on training dipped below a ten year period that ended in 2021.

Rep. Jim Jordan Shares His Top Priorities

"The top of the agenda for you here in the House judiciary committee? I mean, you're off to a fast start. What are the top priorities for both oversight, but also making sure that we hold the Biden administration accountable? Well, the first priority is the border with why we had our first hearing immediately after that hearing that you just referenced there where we organized. We held a hearing on the border situation. And I think there are three fundamental questions. How did it happen? Why does it matter? How do we fix it? How it happened, we all know that. This is intentional, what the Biden administration has done because on day one, Joe Biden said, we are going to stop building the wall. We're not going to we're going to get rid of remain in Mexico to people seeking asylum. And we're not going to deport anyone. And then you get this flux influx of people, this unbelievable number, never seen in the history of our country, record numbers, month after month after month, 5 million 2 years. So that's how it happened. Why it matters is what we really tried to get across in our hearing on Wednesday where we had a father who lost a son to fentanyl. We had a deputy sheriff, excuse me, a county sheriff who talked about in his 38 years in law enforcement. Two years ago, he said was the best, the border situation has ever been. Today, it's the worst. I mean, it literally what he said. And he said, it's the worst because all the people coming across, but the crime, the cost of communities, the cost of schools, the cost of local hospitals, the cost of the entire country. The cost to our system, and then the focus on processing these individuals, what to Biden administration is doing. And then you can't catch the fentanyl and everything else in the smuggling and all the bad things that are happening coming across in outside the ports of entry. So that was why it matters and then of course what we're going to do in the committee is fix it by passing legislation that will immigration enforcement legislation that will change the policy back to the policy, frankly, we had under president Trump. That's what we're going to do. Joe Biden may not sign those bills, but our job is to pass them and show the country what actually works. So that'll be a huge focus. And then, of course, as you mentioned, the oversight because we do believe that our government now has been turned against the people and in many ways is targeting the very people it's supposed to represent and that we have a double standard of justice in the country.

COVID Stimulus Spending Increased Inflation

"The other thing about inflation that you need to know about that I don't think a lot of people are talking about is that the COVID stimulus spending Also played a sizable role in inflation Eric beam wrote this at reason dot com And what they found when the Federal Reserve report published last month audit the fed Tom Massey you're right about that In the U.S. they found that fiscal stimulus during the pandemic contributed to an increase in inflation of about 2.6 percentage points That is a significant increase even if it doesn't account for the full run up of inflation that took place during the past 18 months Price increases accelerated in late 2021 and throughout 2022 Ultimately peaking at an annualized rate of 9.1% in June The large increase in demand triggered by the fiscal stimulus policy together with the slow pace of adjustment in production likely contributed to the current imbalance in the goods market they said Most obvious form of fiscal stimulus in the United States was the three rounds of direct payments mail to most American households during the pandemic About $823 billion was distributed in that matter According to COVID money tracker which is run by the committee for responsible federal deficit You remember that they have the 1200 bucks per person check that that went out That was early on in March They had another round $600 checks Then they had $1400 checks as part of 2021 then Biden pushed through another round of $1400 checks and households earning as much as a $160,000 in joint income were eligible for yet another round of direct payments during the first half of 2021 And when they review all this stuff they find that all this free money all your checks you just got yeah that also contributed in a big big way to inflation Shocking I know when the government gives you free money you think wow there's definitely no strings attached to this right

Well, the saga continues Zach, so according to a blog post published by binance, was Rx can no longer use binance's wallet services. The post says that the Indian exchange has made false and misleading statements about binance's control over Walter X user assets, and because of this, the company has a toll today to remove funds from accounts that they used for wazir X operations. Buzzer X tweeted, I think two or three hours ago that they've initiated the process of transferring assets to multisig wallets, which they expect to be fully completed within the next few hours. Well, I'm going to toss this off to you. We've been chatting about this saga on the show for the last couple of weeks. Finally, it looks like it's come to a head. What did you make of this blog post this morning? Yeah, I've kind of waiting for this, right? We've been following this story in the hash for quite a while. And it's important, right? Binance has a lot of different exchanges built on top of it, that's something that we've fall along with the story and learned about along the way. And then was her ex, it's part of this basket of crypto exchanges in India that has been impact not only by a downturn in crypto markets, but also by the Indian government moving against crypto exchanges pretty heavily. So we had like a few tax laws that went into operation last year, some anti money laundering things as well. It hasn't been favorable to be a crypto entrepreneur in India the last 12 to 18 months because they've been basically thrown under the bus in a lot of instances. And this is tough for the wazir X entrepreneurs and builders of that exchange. It chose to build on binance in at the end of the day. Binance is the heavy gorilla in the room, right? And they're going to start smashing other people if they can. We saw that in a somewhat similar instance with FTX. FTX and binance were going at each other and binance one that, I mean, that's one way to interpret the whole saga.

The safety agency says the so called alpha inflators have a 50% chance of exploding in a crash. If that happens, the inflators can shoot shrapnel toward a driver's face that can cause death or serious injury, since 2009, the exploding airbags have killed at least 33 people worldwide, including 24 in the United States.

Rep. Zach Nunn: Analyzing Surveillance Operations

"Are a combat veteran of the air force. I appreciate your service and we all thank you again for that. Your service then in uniform now in Congress, but this China balloon thing. Are you buying the story that it's a civilian airship doing meteorological research? Yeah, Jeff, not at all. This is a playbook messaging coming out of China's foreign ministry. Only because they got caught. If that were really the case, they would have been giving us a heads up a long time ago. Look, I've flown literally hundreds of surveillance operations with the U.S. Air Force off the coast of Russia. In the Middle East. And one of the things we do is that we never infringe on a sovereign country's airspace. That is a provocative provocation that can lead to unintended outcomes, particularly on the recon side. One of the things I'm concerned about with this balloon is it's flying upwards 80,000 feet, but it has a solar array package on it. It means it can dwell for a long time over places like Montana where it currently is where the United States nuclear arsenal, one of our basing operations is out. And it can collect not just visually what's happening, much like a cheap or low level satellite, but it can also pick up signals intelligence and start to collect signals intelligence as this idea of acquiring information that is highly sensitive that can come out through communications or through telemetry and indicators and Intel that could give away potentially sensitive information to the from the United States the Chinese government desperately wants and needs to get a closer look than what they can get from the satellite. So very concerning.

Author Jim Wallace on Conspiracy and the Resurrection

"When you were that atheist, let me ask you this. You were convinced that the resurrection of Jesus had to be some kind of hoax or conspiracy, and that the disciples cooked it up. That's pretty common. When you talk to people that don't believe in Jesus, that'll be the first thing. I talked to a guy from Princeton divinity school that believes this, right? He's a smart guy. Yeah. But think of that. He went to Princeton divinity and unlearned his faith. Well, okay, so we always have knowledge and wisdom are two different things. So I can get a lot of knowledge going into school, but I may not be wise. And what made me wise about the whole conspiracy theory issues is working a bunch of conspiracies. So anytime you have, if you're working our gangs for two years, any time you have more than one suspect to commit a crime or a murder, then you have what we can add a conspiracy charge. Here's what I've discovered. To have a successful conspiracy, and I think we're so we love conspiracy theories. I mean, we are, I mean, a lot of Christians. Feeds an appetite. Yes, it feeds an appetite we all have. There make great movies, make great novels. We love to talk about them as though they're true. But here's the hard truth. Is that you need a certain number of things in place in order to have a successful conspiracy. And here they are. Pretty simple. You need the least number of co-conspirators. It's easier for two people to do something, tell a lie, keep a secret than it is for 22. It just is. You also need to hold it for the shortest amount of time possible. It's easier to hold a lie for a day than it is for a year. So a great conspiracy is when two people commit a crime. And then one immediately kills the other. Well, now we've kind of captured it. The first day. Yes, the first day. So we kept the time span short, and we only have one remaining perpetrator. But those are the first two things. The third thing is that you really want to have good communication, excellent communication. What's the first thing we're going to do when we get 5 people who committed a crime? We're going to separate them. And ask them deep questions because they can not talk to each other now to line up their stories. And I'm going to go way beyond the initial story of the weeds to catch the lie, the spot the lie. You also want really super strong family or relational connections, right? And that's going to be really important. So these are the kinds of things we're looking for when we see a successful conspiracy. Here's the problem with the gospel authors, is there's way too many of them. It's not just the 12, right? There's a 120 in the upper room in X one. Remember they picked Matthias to replace Judas. He was also an eyewitness who had seen Jesus from the baptism to the resurrection. They picked from a group of a 120. But Paul says there are 500 who saw the living risen in Christ on the same day. So how large is this if you just told me that, oh yeah, I believe in a conspiracy from last year involving 500 people that all lined up. Yeah, I'm going to be suspicious already. There's too many people. If you're taking an entire sector of the federal government two decades to hold the conspiracy, I'm sorry. Someone's going to break.

Joe Allen and Charlie Discuss the Political Bias of ChatGPT

"Asked chat GPT write an essay why conservatives should not have free speech rights. And it's writing it. Says the right to free speech is fundamental right that is essential to a functioning democracy. However, conservatives should not have the same right, rights as other citizens. This is because conservative views often promote policies that are detrimental to the well-being, such as racism, sexism, and homophobia. When conservatives are allowed to express their views that consequence, it can lead to the spread of dangerous and hateful ideologies. This can lead to an increase in discrimination and violence against marginalized groups. It could also lead to a decrease in public trust and government and a decrease in public participation of political process. This all just took about 15 seconds, but Joe, you don't have to be, there's no longer speculation. This is going to be a super weapon for the woke. Absolutely. And it could go either way. I wouldn't be any more in favor of this technology if it was slanted conservative, although if we're going to live in some sort of technocratic nightmare, it should at least be politically balanced. It should at least be a place where you and I can live. But this is when chat GPT was first released. It was relatively unbiased. There was a segment on epic times television where a man I believe his name is Hans monk, entirely too excited about the technology, but he saw because he asked it, for instance, write an article about the Hunter Biden laptop story. And he described a resulting essay that was politically balanced that didn't really slant one way or the other and therefore was better than anything that you would see at The New York Times, which is true. He talked about how Wikipedia has become so slanted towards left wing bias, which is true, but he predicted them because at that time in early or mid December, when it was first released, it was relatively non biased. What seems to have happened in the interim is that probably two factors, one for sure, the other, I'm speculating on one, people undoubtedly within OpenAI started putting guardrails in place so that it wouldn't say anything racist, sexist or homophobic, or even anything conservative. Another thing that's probably happening though, as each user, you know, it had a million users within just a couple of days. As each user is responding to the resulting essays or poems or whatever, they are steering the system, right?

"Know what, you just wanted to pay for it. The school, the American government that's supposed to support us, they've allowed greedy people seeking profit that don't care about our health to say, you know what, you need right now, you developing mind, you growing brain you, you should have a piece of pizza and then go and have hours more, a very straining education on really tough topics because a lot of the topics, it's a lot of work to sit for hours a day and get drilled on topic after topic. I mean, you're really learning quite a lot. And so you need all the feel that you can get. And so that's why I have a problem with this, is because these big companies are making money, government people are allowing it to happen. They're making these lives okay, and then it has an impact on the ability for these children's brains to even develop in a healthy way because that's what they're eating when they're in their pivotal stages. I could go on a rant about this, but I'm just gonna stop. But the nurse practitioner was saying that he has the same problem and concern because these young children need the best kind of food and instead they're getting completely neglected by our government. The article says the lack of differentiation between unrefined carbs and refined carbs also fueled the $35 billion low fat and no fat industry. Changes to recommended guidelines happen slowly when billions of dollars are at stake. Yeah, exactly.

"Extreme action is going to have an extreme reaction. And so if we don't ground ourselves back and what are the Islamic and it goes back to my original point, we're taking on the mantle of issues that are not really our issues, like meaning that if you're a Muslim woman, you know what you have as a right. If you're a Muslim man, you know what you have as a right. You know what you have to provide. We don't complain on a wedding day. Hey, why do I have to pay Maher? Or why do I have to know why is my money her money or why do I have to leave inheritance to her? I mean, we don't argue about these things. We simply take them on because we know there's equity in it. And I think just to wrap up here is the biggest problem is that the non Muslim world since it doesn't have the equality in their mind they're looking for. They have to create these movements, but Islam is special in a way because it provides it addresses equity and not really equality. It knows that equity is more important than equality. Because I could never expect a woman to fight the same battle that I do. For coin hand to hand combat, it's unfair. Anybody would think, what are you crazy? You want to fight a woman and that's just showing it, it's not equitable for that to happen. It's equal if a man and woman fought with two human beings, but it's not equitable. And that's what they don't realize. No, exactly. That's an excellent point and I mean, that just happens to be true. And we don't, you know, it's unfortunate that Muslims are falling into that, and they don't realize it. This is a big problem. Is there anything we left out that you really want to talk about? Or I know you said you had there was a poem in your book that was attributed to my looks..

"Really, this is powerful. So we have the benefit of tradition. So we have that trajectory. So if someone becomes a Muslim tomorrow, Clinton, you know, Bill Clinton accepts them. You know, here he inherits as his forefather and faith. So to speak, right? And so you have that tradition. But at the same time, look at people are coming to Islam just based on what the Quran says to them today. And the idea that as Muslims we never really historically speaking, again, objectively speaking, we didn't have an issue with. Faith and reason in the sense that faith is, yes, believing in God and coming to a less Panetta is based on faith, there's no doubt about it, but it's based on our intellect and ability to do that. It's based on certain types of knowledge that include revelation that include the idea of trust if you trust someone and they tell you something that you can take that to the bank with certain people and certainly the trustworthiness of the profit and the companions who came after him and what they've established is something that has been golden. We built something on that. And so people, you know, people find solace in the Quran. You know, I would want to say it in this way, but if you were to take out a less pan with talent from the Quran, anyone who looks at the Quran objectively would still say this book is a recipe from coming from zero to 100, meaning coming from almost nothing to ruling the world. And here's the other thing. You know, I don't, people are going to take this out of context, but it's not an issue of that we want to rule the world. But what's the difference? So I should give up my understanding of Islam and what is them says about the Leo team and justice and everything that I believe is good and you want me to follow a western model. You want me to follow a human being who says this is, you know, this is the way to go. How is that any better? So we have every right to advocate what we believe in, just like people advocate what they believe in. But they want to take us down, they're going down morally and so forth and they want to bring the rest of the world down with them. And we shouldn't expect that. We shouldn't accept that. And so yeah, I mean, these people, you know, I really feel sorry for what's happening to Americans because we live, we live amongst them. We're Americans. We're not doing enough to change that situation. And people would just hear people or hear about Islam. They changed 100%. They just never have never wanted to tell them. And they just believe again in materialism and what they see. And they just haven't been confronted with other worldviews..

"And Muslims because they're such a diverse group of people and they have the Quran as their base. I don't fear like white supremacists. I understand why they're white supremacists. And I disagree with them. But you know, I'm not like afraid and so forth. And when white supremacists, I don't know, recently, Daniel, and I don't want to mispronounce his name, but yeah, he had an interview. I don't know if any of you saw it with the white supremacists in the UK. And then it was ready to tear this guy apart at the end. There were agreeing on so many things. The white supremacists like look, I believe in ethanol national state, yes. But I love Muslims. I want Muslims to have their Sharia and I could live with Muslims. I'm just against immigration. And you know, people were calling them to Islam in the chat and all of this. But I guess, but not losing sight of what I wanted to say is that the problem that the west has committed, which is really hurting all of the world, not just Muslims, but it's hurting them. You know, people are dying in their home with no one knowing about it until the stench of the decaying body is perceived and someone calls the authorities. And we have this idea of gender identity issues. And we have greed, you know, kids are just growing up, not believing in God. And so forth, okay, but what is it doing in society? What's so great about it? Okay, we have freedom, but what's so great about it, they don't want to admit that they cut off their ties to the past that they led this world down, led the world down this path, and it's destroying the world. And it's destroying them before it destroys anyone else. And here's Islam to say, hey, no, look, there's another way. So there is the threat in the perceived threat. And people like the person that you mentioned. I mean, they're just trying to make a buck off of this tragedy basically just to make to make money off of it. But the idea that Islam is somehow intrinsically violent, whereas other religions are not it's just not true. I mean, look, it's just objectively it's not true, but you have to deal with people's perceptions. And that's what the worldview is about. How do you perceive the world? And I think our job should be to bring to bring people to a realistic view of the world. And I feel the only way I can view the world realistically is by being a Muslim because when you submit your will to God, you're not beholden to anyone else on earth. You're not beholden to status. You're not beholden to other people. You're not beholden to greed. You're not. You're beholden to God. And therefore you feel free on earth because you're calling people from the worship of other things and deities and God and gods and status and so forth. To the worship of the lord of all creatures. And so, you know, I feel like I see the world plainly as it is. And it doesn't mean that non Muslims are a person who doesn't even believe in God doesn't have something good to offer. And if they're not fighting humanity, they're not killing people, they're not harming people, then there's no harm from these people. But when we do things that harm others, then it becomes the obligations of Muslims to stop that. And I think that people are seeing through that. We talked, I think, earlier before, about 9 11 people, everyone lied about Islam so much that it had the opposite effect..

"No, it's just the opposite. They actually built, you know, Islamic architecture was built in many cases on the architecture that they discovered there. And they didn't destroy the previous cultures. They just, they added they just gave it the Islamic character and that's what makes Islam. So beautiful. And that's the reality. And the islamophobes want to say the opposite, but it's just not true. When you wrote your book, the main the impression I came away with the book, I didn't get a chance to read the entirety of the book, but the brunt of the book it seemed like an homage or at least almost like a love letter to the western society about what Islam is and how it can help or how it can affect their lives and how it can improve the overall condition of American society. Was that what you were basically coming across with in the book or was it much more broader than that? I mean, I think that the message of the book definitely was that I wanted to get people to think and to open up a larger discussion and especially now after 9 11 after 20 years have passed over the events of 9 11 that people would look at Islam objectively as much as possible and compare it to our postmodern world. And so we live in America. I live in the U.S. and have the benefits of living in these times and in this place and yet when I look at Islam, what it has to offer and how I can put it into practice. I'm like, I think people are missing this..

"Around for his own sort of, you know, for his own gratification, or he wanted to find out what the eastern district thought of me, the prosecutor's office. And what he came back is he said, you know, he said, look how they tell me that, you know, yeah, they don't like how you go against the government. But they respect the fact that you speak for your people for the community and your Palestinian who has a cause and they don't have any issue with you. And they realize that this is part of part of your job. And I don't know the accuracy of, I mean, I trust this person heard it in that way, but I don't know what the government harbors. But that's the point. I never really felt, you know, I really never really felt that this was an issue because I do feel that I'm an American. I think it's easier for Palestinians to do that because we don't have a homeland. So we adopted the U.S.'s our homeland. So it better treat us well. Otherwise, it's not going to look good for America just like just like Russia going into Ukraine doesn't look good for America. We have to stop the hypocrisy and I think that I just focused on what wasn't hypocritical and it wasn't really an issue. Right, but you did have an early experience early on like being a high schooler in Chicago, maybe talk about that, meaning I think maybe that might have been your first maybe instance where you realize that, hey, if I don't say or do the politically correct things, there are repercussions. If I don't go with the grain, and that was, I think, when you were wearing a pro Palestinian T-shirt in high school, I think, and I think that was probably one of your defining moments, right? When you were younger, like, okay, this is what kind of know where I am or who I am, right? Right, yeah, that was, so this incident is in my book bridging the gap Islam's challenge for America. And it's the book is basically, it's a bunch of, it's a bunch of essays that make up the chapter where I interweave my experiences with the common misperceptions about Islam regarding violence and women and polygamy and all of these things. And so to keep the book interesting, I did bring up stories in my life. And yeah, so this story was in 1982, and I was probably around 15 or 16 at the time, and I was in high school at scherz. And in September of 1982 was when the Israelis had pulled out of Lebanon or pulled out of Beirut, not Lebanon, they stayed in the south for many years after that. But they killed literally, you know, over 12,000 civilians were killed in the plo was kicked out of Beirut. And when that happened, the Christian phalange groups that were supported by the by the Israelis went in and massacred Palestinians in the refugee camps that the plo had been there to protect or were there at the time because of the refugees that had been discovered. And that just changed my whole life. Watching that on the news and just seeing my family and parents and the world, you know, I remember what's his name guy from Canada at ABC News. Peter Jennings, he passed away, but he said, you know, this is graphic and so forth..

"And that's what I, that's what I did with my clients and those people who did come to me seeking advice when they were confronted by the FBI and had to deal with FBI interviews and so forth. Right, so I mean, I'm just trying to put myself back 20 years ago in 9 11. What maybe 21 at that time maybe? Yeah, 21, maybe 20. I would imagine that, I mean, because you know, the reason why I'm asking this question is because if you grew up like kind of we did prior to 9 11, nobody really was interested about your faith about your loyalties to nothing. I mean, it was just kind of like, oh, this is a regular Brown kid. Did all around America. But after 9 11, a lot of those things came into question for a lot of people. I mean, people didn't really say it, but you can kind of feel that. Where people are beginning to maybe question your patriotism or your loyalty and they're saying, well, why are you defending these people? The terrorists. They want to kill Americans. Why would you I'm sure you probably had to wrap around and deal with that and from that perspective, but maybe you could talk a little bit about that. Yeah, that's an interesting question that you bring up. I mean, yeah, when I think about it, actually, you know, the answer is more no than it is yes, and I'll tell you why. If I had been a Jewish lawyer doing that, then yes, I would have received that action. And one of my mentors is Stanley Cohen, who is another prominent attorney in New York, who he represented Musa album, the president of the political bureau of Hamas. And he's represented his represented so many. He's actually helped him on a case with the son in law of Osama bin Laden, who was convicted several years ago. So he's had incredible high profile cases, and he was featured in mainstream media as the America's most hated lawyer, this was after 9 11..

"Be easy going up against the federal government, meaning that I'm sure they're ways that they may try to pressure people, maybe not to take cases or to try to intimidate people, I don't think the government takes very kind to attorneys or lawsuits or maybe resistance. So do you have any experience with that meaning like maybe some unofficial pressure or threats or anything from the government? No, nothing in terms of any direct threats or pressure per se, but certainly travel was difficult for a long time. And I haven't traveled recently in unfortunately with these lists. You can be on and you can be off again once you bring it to their attention. They take you off, but then you travel again in some imbecile puts you back on and then you have to go through the process. So there was a time that I was doing overseas travels and that's another thing I represented people overseas who were considered terrorists by the government they were on the SDG, which is the special special designated terrorist list by the State Department by the Treasury Department. And so I represented people who were trying to get their names off of it. So I made travels overseas. And I've been in the hot places. You know, you can imagine, I haven't been in Afghanistan, but I've been in Libya, Sudan, Iraq, and Yemen, and Palestine. And fellas thanks. So for people, so unfortunately for the government that was scary and so being stopped after coming in from foreign travel was an issue and directly after 9 11 domestic flights were an issue later they didn't become an issue and they haven't been and they're actually there was on and off and so forth. So really other than the traveling, there wasn't any direct pressure. But I do know that definitely I was hated by the government officials that I worked with, meaning the prosecutors are not worked with it, but worked against, let's say, and the FBI, the FBI, just hated my guts from what I understand because even in you may know what's called a grand juries, the prosecutor would ask people questions and after 9 11, they would ask questions about me. Why did you contact mister Newman? And the community. So if someone is called by the FBI, they'd say call Ashraf will give you he'll give you good advice and I would try my best to help anyone who was being contacted by law enforcement. And we went around just telling people, hey, look, you know, you can decide whether you want to talk to the FBI, but we educated people to say that they're not, they're not there for you. They're not your Friends..

We raised Over fifteen hundred dollars maybe fifteen hundred and forty five dollars. Fourteen twenty nine through super chat and hundred fifteen through super stickers. I don't know what that means but it is a twitch thing no it's that's on the youtube analytics what's fascinating is that you know. We don't really do super chats on this show. I mean if people do them much appreciated but we don't generally make call for super chats so the line goes like this and then all of a sudden it just goes like that for that day and so you know we've raised over twenty eight thousand dollars there've been some incredibly generous donations by people you can. You can see them on. I don't want to you know. I don't know if i feel comfortable sort of Well let me just tell a talk about the you know the top donations but with that said. Look if you're hurting financially and you get five bucks in many respects that's A more generous than if you you know you. You have the ability to to drop a couple hundred bucks and you don't even notice it. I mean so But we had Something like three hundred donors. It was really impressive. Our top donors.

It was lied and people resigned at west. Virginia university The cover of trying to force a business degree for this woman. So i mean west. Virginia i mean we aren't talking about the balanced blair mountain today it's going to be for patrons But west virginia politics pretty corrupt place. Joe was the governor at that time. That scandal happened. So that is a real coincidence. Yeah talk about her and how they just decided. They had his great plan with pfizer. How about what do i did from the west virginia university as opposed to like one in a different state where her father wasn't governor governor. Yeah i know. It's probably harder to get fake master's degrees that way. What a coincidence also be talking about the the pfizer mylan sort of instead of pfizer creighton. A competitor to epipens they just combined with milan by one of the distributors. And then they just both reap the benefit of the monopoly.

"And you see this Plummeting prices that's been going on across renewables. That's a is a solar and wind. That's a product of government investment in the us and china germany and elsewhere. And so actually. It's been quite successful. But as as you point out the one example one item of waste can be held up a but we have to think about government as a As as a flawed but we're the entity that is Knock necessarily be perfect. But but it's the best we got and and we need to try to make it better while also you know doing what it can do. I mean this. Linda is a perfect example. You never hear a venture capital fund being criticized for the twenty mrs because that's an automatic. Mrs yo you're taking any risk that's part of their business. The the other five or supposed to pay for the twenty plus right the thing that i want i want i just wanna say going back to that period in the late seventies is is i think we need to look at carter again a little bit and and and think about what he was trying to do versus. What what reagan did afterwards Carter was trying in. My view was trying to integrate. These criticisms of the government from the early seventies The sense that government had to be improved had to be reformed but at the same time we need government so he was trying to articulate a positive vision for government. We're going to regulate we're going to try to protect the air. We're gonna clean water These various things but at the same time we're going to improve it so he tried to use cost benefit analysis to evaluate policies. To figure out. You make sure that they were worth doing. But he's it was a real challenge to sell that. I think that was the failure of the carter administration many ways domestically and he was held up And i think there was a lot of frustration internally that people like nader and others on the outside the public interest movement. They were so accustomed criticizing the government that they criticized carter and in really some of them abandoned the abandoned who was their natural ally and really interested in supporting his election and it was real was a limitation. I think of the of the Public interest movement Not really understanding what their relationship might be to To a successful liberal administration. Has there been a successful rhetorical gambit to address that nuance i mean. Is there one I mean i think if you go through all these Particularly democratic presidents over the years you think of clinton's effort to reinvent government and they had the obama also tried to bring bring back some of this clinton. It seem to me if if if if there's a if you're gonna make a buying are binary Breakdown of where he fell. He fell closer to reagan. Then he. I'm not sure i would actually agree with that. It's interesting you go back. A he had this declaration where he said the you. The year on big government is over. I think people make a lot of lot of that. I see it as if you read that in context. He's talks about how the era of big government is over but he talks about government still has to do things to make people's lives better and i think what he was trying to do is really he was coming out of the seventy s. He was a child of this public interest period and was critical of the new deal agencies. Hillary had worked. I in public interest organizations. So they were they were really imbued with that and so they know. They were critical of the idea of powerful autonomous Unaccountable bureauc- bureaucracy. They want to have a more flexible efficient Idea of government so He i think clinton my view is that clinton was trying. I was trying to do this thing where you would build. Trust in the government By showing that you making it more efficient effective so that that was his belief you could argue about whether it was a good idea. The right approach but i think that that was what he was trying to. He was pro government ultimately. I don't know if thirty years Later there's only one thing that people can remember. It's the era of big. Government is over that that to me is understand going back if you go back and look at the reinventing government report you know. That gore is behind and the rhetoric is really critical of the new deal agencies and has talked about trying to create a new version of government. That has a more customer focused. More efficiency flexibility. So that'll be an and is talking about They they use the language of. How can we build trust in government. And the way we're gonna do. It is by by doing what i'm telling you of trying to show that we both need government and we have to improve it and i think the way the clintons remember his shows how difficult it is to Try to carry out that message very very hard. You gotta be careful about the the the the top in that speech. I think the. I don't know it seems to me. And obama came in you know and employed casting as the one of the sort of the primary drivers of of that idea of of streamlining government But this is a guy who has proven to be hostile to to government regulation and again has this sort of same not necessarily same. But he's that libertarian. Streak it seems to me the only it'd be great to get him on and talk about say is someone like sunshine generally hostile the government or is he trying to do what i'm describing which is An effective and efficient government to pursue to maximize the investment. You know the public resources in serving the public ends. I mean i think it's interesting more recently. The way cost benefit analysis turned around with social cost of carbon to be a justification for intervention in government action and now it's striking that the conservatives don't like cost benefit analysis when it comes to taking account of the other cost of carbon dioxide. But i guess i'm asking like what what is the inefficiencies like. I'm how problematic have the inefficiencies been. I mean i guess that's my point. Is that like you know when you lead with. We're going to fix inefficiencies of government It seems to me that you're you're the argument is is that government has been failing opposed to you know in its execution of plans as opposed to we simply have not been the wrong people have been or the wrong agenda. Has government's been used for the wrong agenda right. I mean like i don. I mean like i say we can talk about the inefficiencies in the unemployment benefits were. Put out certainly. It was inefficient because we had no apparatus to get money to people. Who were you know. Uber drivers or You know we had no but it also have poverty it..

"american government" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder

"The book because he Makes the journey from being a public intellectual unsafe at any speed his expose of the auto auto safety in automobile sort of close alliance between the auto companies and the and the government To them becoming an organizational entrepreneur and he creates dozens of organizations Starting in the late sixties and leads encourages young people particularly to investigate lots of government agencies and do lots of exposes and he kind of runs through this. He's a thread through this. So yeah Really a fascinating character grew up in north western connecticut as a sun java restaurant family and That had immigrated lebanese immigrants and We're very committed to town meeting life and small business and the and the is that idea. And i think that really carries through neighbors philosophy through his whole life including his antagonism to big business. His sense of a belief in the american ideals of competitiveness and small town democracy participation And so he tries to bring that to the larger larger arena. Certainly well i mean. Let's let's let's let's talk about how you know like where the line was drawn or was it or you know that Between the idea of our government has been corrupted by business on some level or our government is imperfect or that government is problematic or having that much power is problematic because he was also. I mean he would not be accurate. Call him of the socialist left. No he's he's clearly you know he's a he was against of 'isms and i think and that's important part of this sort of public interest movement than writing is that it was not Not it kind of came after. What will it's really antagonistic. Both to state sponsors socialism and two unfettered capitalism and it criticized the socialist model because it had a critique of bureaucracy essentially it was a critique of institutions large institutions and that included bureaucracies that would become unaccountable and oppressive to their citizens. And so someone like nader was a you know the the embrace of citizens as an ex outside watching over the government was a rejection. Both of the corporates corporations and their power but also of the unfettered power of the of the state itself but was it was it you know. So if fdr said that you know essentially something. I'm paraphrasing but we but we are the government that we are the government did nader's tack change that formulation in that like you know. We'll we'll or. I think that's a great question i mean. I think they'd say the. I think what what nader and others would say is that is that the government should be us but it's not us Because of the way it's been captured and and the way that has these internal dynamics That don't lead to it representing the people And so therefore you need. We need to create this. I mean it's just a wonderful name of public. Interest movement is saying essentially that outside of the government is where the public interest. The flame of the public interest has to be curated has to be safeguarded To make sure that the government is representing it. So i think there's a strong faith in government. The belief in the government and the congress is representing the people but also a sense of disappointment and failure And a need for that. The system is needs to be held accountable with sort of a permanent outside. Watch guards and and and to what extent would i mean. I think people can understand how that that framing can. Both i mean can can cut both ways. Yeah i mean because my My assessment of what the public interest is holding. The government to account for that is very different from other people's notion of the public interest is and that seems to me. Open your opening up once you once you're identifying or you're saying that. The problem is structural with the government. as opposed to its relationship with. Let's say big money. And the implication being that you need permanent outside institution because you can never fix that relationship with big money It starts to become a little bit problematic in up to anyone. Sort of idea of what the public interest is. I think if we were thinking about some of the weaknesses or limitations of the movement one of them would be This issue which is that. They believe that they they held the idea that may hell the public interests But then they're antagonists conservative conservative law law firms groups also organized in. Also they were. They were claiming that they represented the public just and they were suing to protect property rights against regulations. And and all that and then as the judiciary has shifted over the last Four forty years or so It's become increasingly unsympathetic to the liberal public. Interest groups more sympathetic to the conservative ones and has just shown that as a as a mode of social change that relying on sort of external litigation and advocacy has serious limitations as opposed to trying to control the institutions of power. Get involved with politics has as messy compromised as they are to try to build a larger social movement. I think there's been a realization that that that is necessary. Let's talk about like sort of the the other types of groups You know because it never occurred to me that we you know you hear so many of the defense funds That those were all sort of almost in some way Incubated or modeled after a did and and to be in we outline and it's sort of like a material way. What did through these citizens i mean. I think people here listened to some of the past times where i've gone to these tort conferences. We get a little bit of that. You outlined what they're sort of what their methodology was adopted by other. That's great So so i'd say. I is two things. One is the idea of the defence fund It was inspired in some ways but by the end of lacy peasley Legal defense and education fund and seeing the civil rights litigation and civil rights movement and those attacks and critiques of the government And seeing that. Oh well we could create these types of organizations so you get the environmental defense fund the natural resources defense council the sierra club legal defense on their all modeled on on on that and also maybe the aclu and so it in at the end of nineteen sixty seven to nineteen sixty eight and some of these other folks Decide to start creating organizations That would that could live gate. And that could you know. Sue the government and try to rein in and watch over the agencies and the other thing that was mobilized motivating. Some of this is the is the vietnam war and the sense that The growing distrust of government was stimulated by By the war itself and the antiwar movement since government might be lying and misrepresenting and misleading leading. You know so. These are all the environment of it So as nixon comes into office the liberals out of power Groups like the ford foundation fun to hold network of these organizations and what they do is start lit litigating so they're tremendous numbers of lawsuits against the agencies are investigating nader particularly Did a whole series of investigations of clean air a water pollution of air pollution of a pet toxic pesticides all these different things and they were investigations of agencies and you can tie them directly to the major legislation of the early nineteen seventies like the clean air act and the clean water act and they had a big impact on how those laws restructured in terms of the role of citizens in account holding government and business accountable and also the way that congress Set the rules of very stringently so that agencies would not have as much latitude for action that they wanted to create. They didn't trust the. This is a fundamental distrust in the legislation of early seventies that is stimulated by these types these investigations in this litigation. Wait i'm sorry. Will you explain that last part That the that the legislation did not give agencies that came out of the nineteen seventies wide parameters. Well will empower the agencies but it gave them very specific goals and mandates and the idea was that you couldn't just You can just try necessarily just trust the agency But you had to really be very directive of the agency so that they're much more in Much much tougher emphasis on enforcement because under under johnson. There had been a kind of these. They embrace like conferences. Like there'd be we're gonna have a conference of the interested parties and we're going to discuss how we can improve improve the air and we'll work on it and we'll try to try to solve it and there was a sense that this is broken That the government they need to pass laws. There was one guy working clean water. David zwick says we have to. We have to pass laws that our government proof with the idea that the government you know you couldn't let the government deal undermine the law itself and so And so that was that at that time it was more get together with business and labor and figure out what the solution is and now it's like the solution is to to make it less. I mean the irony of course is that we are. I don't know if it's months or maybe a couple of years away from the supreme court essentially staying.
