Pieces of garbage on the left scum have said a freaking in we bring I it up because we come back from the break and John Kirby was asked a question like. Hey, we got a bunch of people, you know, not just protesting, but. Protesting for a mass like that. It's a known savage terror group that's a threat to the United States. Is anything happening about that? And John Kirby's like, man, know, you we're like big First Amendment people here. Oh, you are your big First Amendment people now. Time out. I am actually said. Ladies and gentlemen, if you're not breaking a law, threaten anybody's life. I am an advocate of your free speech, even if you are pro Hamas. I think you're crazy. You're a terror simp. You're a life loser and you're probably dangerous. But if you're not breaking any law, you have the right to say what you want. My point isn't that John Kirby is wrong in saying the First Amendment matters.

Sources Claim That Ron DeSantis Ate Pudding With Three Fingers
"New York magazine, Margaret Hartman, headline. Ron DeSantis eating pudding with his fingers will end his 2024 bid. She writes Ron DeSantis has been hit with a fast art with a food related accusation so weird it may end his 2024 presidential bid before it officially starts. The Daily Beast reports that according to two sources, the Florida governor once ate chocolate pudding with three fingers. This article in a New York publication says politicians are human beings who need to consume food and water in order to live just like the rest of us, but they should really consider only taking in sustenance alone in a darkened room. Just to be safe. Chris Christie is forever the governor who berated a guy while clutching an ice cream cone. The only thing most people remember about senator Amy Klobuchar's 2020 presidential bid is that she was accused of eating salad with a comb. I mean, this is a serious argument. That they're making. Ron DeSantis being a messy eater eater is a disqualifier. Now what's fascinating is I know this doesn't surprise you. The elitist of New York magazine doesn't even consider Ron DeSantis military career.
Robert Bork, Jr: The Consumer Welfare Standard Is for YOUR Protection
"Your organization do that? How can we continue to get this message out that antitrust is there to say the consumer. And yes, it protects them from the big, bad companies, but it also protects our free enterprise system as we know it. Exactly. Again, I go back to, let's not talk about I don't talk about antitrust so much as I talk about the consumer welfare standard, which is the operating system, which drives antitrust enforcement now, which is what the courts. And the courts are the things that are is the branch of government that's protecting the consumer right now, because as you can see, Amy Klobuchar and the Democrats and want to tear down the consumer welfare standard, and they can do that just by passing a statute, changing the law. And then the courts have to follow what they do. Well, supposedly what they have to follow what they do. They don't always follow what they do. But the key here is for people to understand very simply that the consumer welfare standard is for your protection as the consumer and the economy and that there are different kinds of consumers, but that's what your protection is. If I creating economic efficiency, which drives prices and innovation and job creation and wealth creation, I mean, if you look Joe Biden, I'm sorry for wandering off again, but Joe Biden issued 72 executive orders last year. All of government approach to competition. And he said, and he actually, this is what really route me. He named my father. He said, judge bork's experiment failed. And antitrust. Well, that was utter horse hockey. And, you know, I wrote a piece in the op-ed where I pointed out that the economy has grown three times in size. That there are more small businesses than ever before, the rate of growth of small businesses was enormous. He said that was not true. But Biden and the truth are two things that are not acquainted with each other.

Senate Panel Moves Forward With Bill Targeting Big Tech
"Last question, senator grassley, your longtime colleague who will win reelection again this year, has sponsored a big tech bill along with Amy Klobuchar. I am not a fan of that bill. Have you been persuaded of that, bill yet? No, I haven't. I think there is a lot more that we need to look into. I absolutely respect chuck grassley. Of course. I will take a look at that Bill. I'll do a deeper dive into it. But there is a lot of discussion that needs to happen across the board. Big tech, this will be a tricky one for us to navigate. They are private industry. They are we have to recognize that they are private industry, but have we given them through the United States federal government, have we given them the opportunity to really prevent free speech out there? All of those concerns need to be addressed. I'm not sure that we have found the right answer yet.

Apple App Store Changes Fail to Stem Push for Overhaul Bill
"Peace offerings and settlements between apple and developers won't stop congressional moves against app stores couple of weeks ago apple announced a proposed settlement with smaller developers. Perhaps the biggest concession offered by apple was the one that would let developers use communications such as email to share information about payment methods outside of their ios app. A few days later apple settled with the japanese government that settlement included a pledge to let reader apps such as net flex and spotify. And who knows. Maybe some that actually involve reading under terms of the settlement apple will let reader apps include an in napa linked to their website for users to either setup or managing account and sign up using a non app store. Payment method will be possible according to a piece from macrumors. Maybe they think it's not enough. Maybe they just wanna look tough. Whatever the reason the piece from apple and cider has at least one. Us senator saying legislation up ending up stores. Run by apple and google will go forward last month. A bipartisan group of senators introduced the open up. Markets act speaking the bloomberg one of the. Bill's sponsors senator. Amy klobuchar democrat of minnesota.

Markets act to finally address apple and google twin monopolies. And i will continue working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get it done. You didn't ask but i'll tell you anyway. What annoys me is. They're gonna point to this as a thing that they got done

"You're not a scam pack. But it turned out he did. Actually the words that come out of his mouth and kevin mccarthy was later forced to talk about it on a sunday show which was a particularly bit of Disgrace for Speaker mccarthy. I do not think you can sell. Voters are smarter than thinking now. Trump's going to be the speaker of the house like one they don't mostly don't know that donald trump doesn't have to the house so it was incredibly stupid and crazy but i think there's a bigger question about whether democrats should keep trump front of mind heading into twenty twenty two right whether that's at speaker because he's doing this rally apparently this weekend his general influence in the party. What you know like that's a different. That's different thing whether the speaker thing itself is too narrow an absurd to be a credible argument for donations volunteers votes but the the fact that trump could become speakers the larger issue that probably has to be addressed. You're the guy is a threat whether he's sitting behind joe biden during the state of the union scowling at him. Which is what would happen that. Would that would be worth the price of admission right there. Right like don't you. I was going to say like trump knows that you can imagine the. At least it's entered. Trump's mind that image thinking to himself. Maybe i do wanna be speaker so definitely entered his mind but You know. I think look the threat is there and i do think that's going to be a big part of the look the challenges you do want trump sort of front and center in people's minds heading into the midterms for a very substantive serious reason which is that. He's the front runner for the republican nomination. In two thousand twenty four probably can get that nomination if he wants it and runs for it and then because of the polarized close country. He's like you know forty thousand or so votes away from being president again right and people should can understand that. That's the reality. Of course the challenges. We don't really hear him that much anymore. Like you just said. And even though. He's all over conservative radio and podcasts and oa and newsmax. Most of the country isn't watching that. And so i do think for most voters heading into twenty twenty two. They're not necessarily going to be thinking about trump all the time because trump is in getting the coverage he used to get in mainstream media which is a good thing in some ways but also i wonder if people are going to really understand the threat that still persist that the threat that still out there from republicans taking the house and then trump potentially winning in two thousand twenty four. It's an open question as to whether he's going to be much more fun of mine when people start campaigning. Two thousand twenty two. there's gonna be entre. Primaries starts campaigning to he's out there Fox will start. He'll be on fox more But certainly won't be like twenty eighteen twenty twenty for sure. He's not twenty but that's why that's why dan. We have this bipartisan infrastructure. Deal and people are going to go to poisoning us. Say there's a road coming in a couple of months and that's enough for me to vote for democrat we went. We went on a long car this weekend. Down the coast to the beach and on the way there. There is tremendous traffic because of road. Construction and i became an ardent of parliament of infrastructure. To small short car. Fits tough backlash infrastructure. But then on the way home. We finally got jack asleep. He does not like eight. And then we hit a pothole and he woke up. And i became a huge proponent of the infrastructure deal so fixing the damn roads. There you go. So ron plane. I'm going to send you an email with very specific pothole on one north. That you should take a look at. That's that's real power. Dan even hoping for reasons. You'll have to white house okay. On that note. Thank you to emmy kluber sharp for joining us today. Everyone have a great weekend. I m off next week on vacation. So.

"Mansions proposal is every piece of it was in there which would be really helpful with the outside super pac money and then we can figure out who's giving that money obviously The senate is taking off. Shortly was going out in august. We now have a bipartisan infrastructure. Deal a pledge to move on budget. Reconciliation river structure. Where do you think a calendar were next. Gonna hear or have a vote on Voting rights and protecting democracy. We must do it soon. We're can't wait to right before the election So i can't give you the exact date a lot of this has to do with the procedural issue but nothing stops Senator schumer who is made this His number one priority. Why it's s f one. Nothing stops him from as he has said bringing it up again when the time is right So i think you won't. There's just no way. Were let us go dormant. We just have to figure out the right thing and remember. Yes the infrastructure package but we also have to have the second package. Which is things like child care and housing things. We've been talking about for quite a while my frustration right now. In general with the filibuster is there's other things we have to do to that. Don't fit under reconciliation. Which is where that second package will be. That's the things like. I just mentioned childcare housing. At least they can be related to taxes in so you're able to put them in there but immigration reform in a big way like we should do it like many republicans actually supported in the past But we every time we just came up short or climate change legislation. Yes we can put some green infrastructure in the packages But that doesn't get where we need to get. And so that's why again to move on these major major bills that we've been waiting so long to do. We can't sit around and wait for the this archaic senate procedure suddenly magically change on its own. There are two sort of ticking clocks that are putting pressure on The voting rights stuff. One is obviously we have an election coming up in next year but more short-term more urgent than that is the provision which vary. I think people were pleasantly surprised to see incentivizes compromise to deal with partisan gerrymandering and put in place independent redistricting commissions. That has to happen very shortly in order to be in place for twenty twenty two. Is that one of the arguments that you're making people in the caucus. Thank you dan for bringing that up because we know how people have messed around with these districts That hurt the popular well and the popular. Well when you look at where people are on these you know. Eight percent of people wanting background checks for guns. You name it. They're with us. And so the fact that you'll have states that actually as cammy baldwin would point out at a democratic gov- democratic senator and then they're republicans just dominate these congressional seats. We have to make a change. And that's what the gerrymandering commissions are about And so that is in center. Mansions proposal as senator angus king. Who's in independent a big fan of this And so we can't wait to do that. Because as you point out these these districts have to be determined in. Can't do it the day before the election. What territory you're voting in what you're serving Before i let you go. I wanted to ask you about two two things unrelated voting rights. I is infrastructure package. What is your view of how this should be sequence in terms of the bipartisan. Deal and budget. Reconciliation is your vote on the bipartisan contingent upon an agreement to do budget a larger budget. Reconciliation plan that includes the things. You just mentioned. Yeah i would say most of our caucus Believe that we need to do these together. Either they believe it in their heart which i do And by the way together. I don't mean on the same day because we can do anything in the senate by this. I mean we have a general agreement for The money we have a general agreement for what's going to be in that second package And then we'd most likely vote on the bipartisan package. I the second package will most likely be a democratic package. Just like the incredibly popular and successful american rescue plan. was done through reconciliation with democratic votes This will be a very similar situation so you can have an agreement on in general terms on that and then vote on the bipartisan Bill i and so that's how i view it. We have to make some decision. And even if you didn't believe that in your heart you gotta believe it pragmatically because be house is gonna vote for this alone. They made that very clear. And so if you want to just get blitzer or someone. That doesn't care about the second package and i think everyone does not caucus i do. But if you didn't care about it if you wanna get your own packets through you gotta get it through the house so you gotta get some general agreement on the second package and the same to get the votes in the senate. 'cause you're yeah i don't know what number republicans you're going to get on this package but isn't going to be nearly enough so you've gotta get a bunch of democrats so i think there's a way to do this and we've had many many discussions about this not just in senate leadership but with everyone and i think there's general agreement. I'm not saying it uniform that we're going to have to do something like that last question. The you have written and focus a lot of your energy on antitrust and big t around big tech in particular nyc having it be the last question we have one minute to go exactly about it for an hour dean and we would love to have you back to talk some very fascinating but there was progress on this last night. Yeah in in a house committee anything up coming in the senate that you want to see trying to get done. Actually one of the bills that they passed out with my bills Which actually has passed the senate Which is really the first key..

"Is a big deal right it. Joe biden ran in part on his ability to get things done on a bipartisan basis in washington. And he did if you would said six months ago. A year ago that there was a democratic president was going to strike a trillion dollar near trillion dollar deal with republicans. You'd think that was insane. We have been. We would have said that we would have laughed. Yeah absolutely left. In so be honest he his pull something off here. That is that proves his theory of the case and he deserves a ton of credit fort the democratic centers over time credit for these republicans. Who seem willing to do. something reasonable. Deserve some credit for they get some demerits for trying to rig elections instill democracy and just general terrible this. But it's like i. I am relatively bearish on the long-term politics of bipartisan infrastructure. Deal this infrastructure. Is not something that people feel in their lives immediately but this is a huge feather. Joe biden's cap before we break out the balloons and the confetti canon though i will say the devil is still in the details here for a couple of reasons. Nancy pelosi today has wisely said or apparently she said this on a call and it was reported out a stole other democrats that the house will not. Pass this bipartisan infrastructure. Deal unless they see a full reconciliation. Bill that will contain all the rest of joe biden's economic priorities. The capacity reconciliation climate housing education childcare healthcare though works taxes raising taxes on the wealthy. And so what. I'm trying to figure out is a. Why did those ten republicans go along with a bipartisan infrastructure. Deal knowing that next on the democratic agenda is a democrats only reconciliation. Bill that's going to contain all the progressive goodies that basically joe manchin can stand Because that's what that's how you pass a reconciliation bill and joe mentioned by the way in. The rose garden just told reporters. Yeah part of this deal is. We're doing this bipartisan infrastructure. Bill now but there's gonna be a democrats only reconciliation bill. I'm fine with that. I've been wondering this for a long time and trying to figure out how the pieces come together. There was a report a few last week yesterday a month ago. Who the fuck knows at this point. That mc one of the reasons why mcconnell one it was open to this deal happening was he thought it made a big bipartisan. Reconciliation deal less likely that getting something done on. A bipartisan basis would convinced mansion in cinema that they would not need to be on board for a big democrats only bill. That doesn't seem to have borne out of according to the to what mansion said publicly Something different cinema and others about that. So i like and i think there's a lot of road to travel here is ever gonna look like once again. It comes down to joe. Manchin cureton cinnamon others is really gonna look like six trillion dollar bill. That bernie sanders wants. That seems unlikely. will be in. There won't be in their ken. What what comes out of the senate passed. The house is an open question with us narrow margin so like you said a lot of road to travel here to reasons why republicans might have done. This one is. It just may be that mitch. Mcconnell could not stop them there are enough republicans who have been like. We can't stop. Joe manchin who. They want to do something right there in the senate they abided by a bunch of trumpian bullshit for a long time. Here's a chance to do something like they're human beings involved in this process always who have to go home and be like what did you do this week. Nothing right covered crimes. You know what did you do with. I pretended i didn't read. I didn't read twitter. And i covered up some crimes in this. They can go on this weekend and say we gotta deal right and then the other if you were trying to impute some sort of political strategy behind it is the republicans need to show in order to make a case that they for divided government to show that they're not just a bunch of trump being lunatics. And here's a case for it right. Like divided government works. Put us in charge. We can do things besides just like enable matt gaetz or back martin taylor green or all of those things. It's it's an argument that republicans can govern. you know. I think it's probably more humane thing than the political strategy thing. And i think it's i think this happened despite mitch mcconnell now because of me i think he he just could not stop it. Yeah that makes sense to me too. Okay when we come back. Talks to senator amy klobuchar about what's next on voting rights support.

Power from the gilded age to the digital age senator. Thanks for being here. Well thank you. It's just wonderful to be on. You have been doing a few things during the past few years been busy. Why at a book. And i might add. This is not a quickie book. This is not an election book. This is a very heavily reported historical book more than two hundred pages of notes. Why well because. I care that much about this. I started to think about doing this a few years ago and it really for me started with a call. I got way back in two thousand and eight when i got a call from a pharmacist. Actually at minneapolis children's hospital and he said that the cost of this life saving heart drug for heart defects had gone up astronomically from like eight hundred dollars a treatment to sixteen hundred dollars treatment and he didn't know why and so. This is a very typical. You get these constituent calls so our staff followed up ahead of minneapolis children's and lo and behold. It turned out that one company had bought that drug but then they had also cornered the market by buying the competitor drugs. And so what happened. Was that the ftc got involved after. I brought it up. It's like your classic new senator. And i bring it up. I have the little vial at a hearing. And i say why is this happening to the ftc and they start federal trade commission based start looking into it and ended up bringing a major suit and that was really exciting.

A Conversation About Section 230 and the Future of the Internet
"Week. Senior reporter addie robertson. Who have heard on the broadcast many times before held an event about section two thirty. That's the law that says platforms aren't liable for their users publish. It is a critical lot. The internet also just turned twenty five years old last month. So addy held an event with a keynote by senator. Amy klobuchar democrat from minnesota is one of the sponsors of the tech act. That's an act that would reform section to thirty as well as a panel featuring michael chia. Who's the general counsel video sedan. Harry is a researcher writer. And a strategist human attack and amana keeping general counsel at wicca media which runs wikipedia. Talking about where section two thirty is where might go in the future. So we're going to run some highlights of that event for today addie and russell are gonna join talk about how it went and what they heard what they thought and as it happens here right now. Russell has done good. Love it addie. Congratulations on your event. It was a good one. Hey thank you so. Tell me how you think. The event went. And then i'm going to hand over the episode to you and we can listen to some highlights and talk it through. But how do you think of went. I thought it went well. One of the things i like about. Section two thirty is that. It's just a really weird conversation that people kept asking okay. What sides her can there are like fifty different sides and we had a really pretty interesting spread of perspectives and senator klobuchar speech was really good scene. Setter and i'm overall pretty happy. Yeah you know. What i thought was really interesting. Just as i watched the whole event senator klobuchar has some very strong perspectives. About what can be done in those perspectives. We're definitely not shared by the entire panel. In fact the safe tech act is it's it's always interesting to me to hear. Senators talked about their own legislation. 'cause they always make it seem so common sense but it's actually quite controversial. Some of the changes that she was proposing. Oh yeah absolutely well and also like you know. She addition to talk to thirty. She takes a pretty hard line on antitrust. I was actually surprised by how sort of enthusiastic she was about it. And i sort of imagine. The video guy is sitting there easter like. She's talking about breaking up google. He's like yeah. Okay a lot of the sort of civil society tech people which this is part of what we wanted to introduce the conversation like. They don't have a problem with antitrust. They are mostly hoping that section two thirty doesn't get changed in a way that makes it impossible to have wikipedia exist and then bringing up things like misinformation also just throws its own kind wrench into things because that's actually not largely problem that addressed with section two thirty and so you end up slipping weird stuff like first amendment reforming there. Yeah this was. I think is the panel went on the combination of we think facebook too big but if we changed to thirty to punish facebook we might end up punishing ourselves and then senator klobuchar talking about an inch. Just dead ahead. And even to some extent bringing up the idea of breakup as a potential remedy. All of that is a swirl and we've been talking on swirl for for some time and it was just really interesting to hear the spread of perspectives during this event. So at russell. I'm excited for this. Why don't you start and take us through this event and what we heard. Yeah absolutely. I think the one thing i want to start with this sort of like the chronological beginning. But like you know. I always like it when these things make a little news. And i think i was very interested to hear santa club. Stars line on antitrust. She sort of coming to the fore of like the democrats antitrust policy. She wrote a book called antitrust and is the chairman of the subcommittee on competition policy antitrust and consumer rights which is basically the senate home for antitrust policy so she's really sort of at the forefront of it and i thought it was interesting she a lot of time she gets gloucestershire's like this moderate voice but she was pretty harsh on facebook. Here we have. We have this clip at the root of this problem lies the ability of a few companies to act as gatekeepers and as we see when they dominate markets exclude rivals buy out their competitors. We've got a problem. In the emailed words of mark zuckerberg. These businesses are nascent but the networks established. The brands already meaningful. And if big go to a large scale could be very disruptive to us they could be very disruptive to us. I always about the tech industry was about disruption it's about disrupting the status quo and bringing in new good ideas that basically blow up the marketplace in a positive way we can't have monopoly stopping disruption so in a way the work i am doing is simply a reply to that email so the interesting thing so this was this was something that we had on the site like dual casey and nikolai byline. When the antitrust hearing happened he's talking about instagram and path so instagram they bought path proved not to be disruptive to facebook. I think it's fair to say but this is not a public statement. He meant to make. And i do think i don't know i mean do do we do. We hear this. And think like amy kluber. Shar is on team break-up facebook it feels like it will qualify that by saying at the very least it's team don't let facebook acquire anybody else. Yeah but team break-up facebook. I don't know it definitely seems like it's on the table ray. Which is very interesting so there have been on the left. A lot of really aggressive sort of pushes for stronger antitrust like we need some new like we need to empower the justice department. We need some new legislation that will enable us to kind of go after these businesses more heavily. And it's fairly recent that closure is trying to to kind of lead that i mean she just. She's only now coming to the to the lead on this committee. And i think because she ran in the democratic primary sort of as a moderate voice. She's been glossed as like. Well she's not in the end gonna like usher in this new era of trust busting but then elsewhere in the keynote. She's talking about well. You know it worked pretty well when we did this against. At and i mean. I don't know. I'm still kind of undecided. It's always hard to know how committed people are going. It's going to be a really politically difficult road to walk. If they move on. you know.
