Amy Klobuchar Promises to End Hurricanes If You Elect Democrats
"Hurricane is really, it's really heating up. I'll tell you what. But don't worry, 80 Klobuchar says that if you would like Democrats, they're going to be able to end hurricanes, play cut 66. We just did something about climate change for the first time in decades. That's why we've got to win this as that hurricane bears down on Florida. We got to win in the midterms. We understand that elect thus and the hurricanes will stop.
Benny Johnson Weighs in on the Left 'Getting Rid of Hurricanes'
"Benny, I don't know if you heard this or not, but Democrats are now running on the promise that if we elect them in November, they're going to get rid of hurricanes. Amy Klobuchar cut 66. The snow woman herself says, you put Democrats in power, we're going to get rid of hurricanes. Play cut 66. We just did something about climate change for the first time in decades. That's why we've got to win this as that hurricane bears down on Florida. We got to win in the midterms. We understand that we got to win Benny because Democrats will make hurricanes go away. Yeah, so you had a segment so seconds ago you were talking about someone who emailed you and said that, you know, people in Russia are now believing in God. Man, nothing will make you believe in God more than a witnessing this, this kind of a storm. And the kind of the magnitude of nature itself, it really does make you feel small in comparison. It is something that has been happening forever here. Every one of my neighbors is flipped through tons of hurricanes. Obviously, this is something that normally happens in Florida. It hasn't hit Tampa in quite a while, but these people are simply hedonists, right? They don't believe in God. So they believe that they can control the weather. They say this all the time. Barack Obama says he's going to lower the waters, right? Well, right before he builds his mansions on the right on the water. That's right. Maybe that's because he has the power to lower, but it's just classic hedonism, man. Claiming that we're in charge of nature and that we are God on this earth and, you know, nothing will make you believe in God more than standing in the middle of hurricane.
Democrats Want to See Gov. Ron DeSantis Fail
"Folks you need to understand it I know you do But some people don't If you really understand what we're dealing with here they want desantis to fail That's what they want You heard how giddy Amy Klobuchar was Trying to tie this into the Democrats and climate change We've had Democrats a long time in this country They've had a lot of power for a long time Obama had 8 years This guy Biden was in the Senate for 36 years He served with Obama for 8 years He's been president of two years We had Clinton for 8 years As the weather gotten better is it climate gotten better Do they take responsibility for anything Schumer has been in the Senate in the house What is it now Over 30 years Pelosi another one Over 30 years They act like they're all observers They've had the levers of power forever They run the Environmental Protection Agency They run the interior department They run at all They run the universities and colleges They run the various science operations and the federal government and in the universities and colleges what's the issue The issue is they're full of crap That's the issue
How Ted Cruz Caved on a Bill That Is Strengthening 'Big Tech'
"About a moment last week when your blood did get a little bit heated. Talk to us about certain legislation concerning social media and what senator Cruz did last week and why it's so dangerous. Right. So there's a proposal that Amy Klobuchar, Democrat who ran for president and fully intends to run for president again. Senator from Minnesota has been pushing. It's called the journalism competition and preservation act. Now, what it would do is it would create an antitrust exemption to allow media companies to band together to collectively bargain so that they can group together and force big tech Facebook and Google to pay for the content that they carry on their platforms. Now that sounds good, except here's the problem. There are no provisions in the legislation, something that would be called a favored nations clause that would make it such that the deal that is the best deal negotiated between a group of media companies would apply to everybody. Reading smaller companies and conservative media, et cetera. So what I'm getting at here is that the way that this would work out is that the biggest establishment media outlets, the big city newspapers that I was talking about before, like the Miami Herald the Dallas morning news, et cetera, they'd all get together and make their own little deal with Facebook and Google. Outside the law because again, it would create an antitrust exemption, which by the way, every time we see an antitrust exemption, Major League Baseball is a really good example of this. It never works out so well. But they would make their own deal and it would exclude the rest of us from it. Senator Cruz, this bill was dead. It was dead multiple times over the course of the last year and a half and it's one of the few things over the Democrats proposed that the Democrats have proposed this Congress that we've been able to crush. Senator Cruz revived it in
The Consumer Welfare Standard Is for Your Protection!
"Took some flack from conservatives who bought the wrong argument here that antitrust was where you attack section two 30, which, you know, frankly, and I've talked about it on this podcast section two 30 has enough teeth in it right now to shut down the abuses that we're talking about. We just got a DoJ that doesn't want to prosecute the cases based on an old court case that they say they can't. That's just wrong. But this is where we've got to overcome it. How does 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. It's by creating economic efficiency which drives prices and innovation and job creation and wealth creation. I mean, if you look at 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 rowed 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.
Democrats Try to Scrub Big Tech
"Meanwhile, Democrats are trying to screw up big tech. Now we need some reforms in big tech, some protection of data. We need national security, cooperation from big tech. National security adviser Robert O'Brien went on Larry kudlow's show on Fox business yesterday talking about Amy Klobuchar's Bill. Amy Klobuchar's Bill is really bad. Because once again, if you let Democrats run anything, they will run it into the ground. Cut number 26. Well, look, the one thing standing in the way of Chinese domination of the world in Chinese Communist Party domination in the world is the American private sector and the bigger one of the big parts of that is tech. And so all you have to do is look at what Elon Musk did with Starlink at the outset of the Ukraine war keeping Ukraine connected, what YouTube did and getting zelensky's speeches out to the Russians. And we see why the Chinese don't like it. And they've said that they're going to surpass American tech, they're going to scale their companies. They're going to put trillions of dollars into it. They've been public about it. So they've got this China 25 policy to destroy America's tech sector. And now we've got these bills out to help them do it. It's pretty amazing. I want to give them access to our algorithms, access to our data. We should be banning Chinese companies and taking action like India did against Chinese big tech and instead we're coming after the American companies.
Josh Hammer Reflects on Sen. Amy Klobuchar's Abortion Comments
"Yeah, I want to play a clip for you here from senator Klobuchar. That I think, you know, when we talk about the constitutionality of roe V wade and obviously Casey sort of, in my opinion, obviously I think you would agree that it's unconstitutional. I think Alito's opinion was a skewered the original road decision. But let's play senator Klobuchar here, and I want to get your take on what she says because actually what she's saying from a sitting U.S. senator is something. I mean, this is not mazie hirono here talking here. I mean, which we just assume is she's going to say the most Atlantic, you know, far left out to see kind of the type of things. Is it senator Klobuchar, who many think is sort of moderate or left of center, but not far left. Listen to cut 6. Why should a woman in Texas have different rights and a different future and a different ability to make decisions about her body and her reproductive choices than a woman in Minnesota? How can that be in this country that we'd have a patchwork of laws? Your response. So senator Klobuchar and I actually went to the same law school and, you know, I would like to think that when she was in common law back in her law school day, she knew better about the actual constitutional law underpinning the roe versus wade and its murderous successor, of course, Planned Parenthood versus Casey 92. Now, look, I mean, John Hart Eli, okay? There are so many liberals who have criticized roe versus wade's fallacious reasoning or beers. But John Hart Eli, who is a longtime constitutional law professor at Harvard Law School, he was the dean of Stanford law school as well. He was personally liberal progressive he supported abortion rights, but he famously said in 1982 that roe versus wade was not constitutional law and barely even gave a semblance of purporting to be constitutional law. It was literally no less a feminist leftist progressive icon than the late justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg herself. We said the roe versus wade overstepped that the court should not have acted there when it did. They should have stayed cool, let it play out democratically in the states. So, you know, what I hear from senator Klobuchar there is, you know, it's constitutional illiteracy. It's also moral illiteracy, of course. We can't forget we're talking about it. You are talking about the wanton murder of now 63 million unborn children since roe versus wade came down in 1973. 63 million. I mean, it's really just difficult to kind of wrap your mind around around that kind of number. But you know, there's something about you said there, Andrew, that I think there's a modicum. There's a small, small sliver of correctness. Where I think she's correct, is that it ultimately is unsustainable for in the long term. My personal perspective in the long term for this to actually be a state

"amy klobuchar" Discussed on Hysteria
"Okay, the house has been kept and now we're gonna get to what we are feeling petty about this week. There's a lot to feel petty about this week. I have more of a kind of unifying theory of 2022 that I would like to offer and it's sort of what I'm feeling petty about, but once I realized that I'm like, oh, I am now a hammer and everything looks like a nail. And here is my hammer thought. 2022 is vibe is chaos. Chaos, that's the vibe. So like Julia Fox, all of a sudden, cutting her jeans up and wearing them as like a tube top low rise. Ensemble. Did you see the pictures of this? Her eye makeup, her zeitgeisty status. It's because her vibe is chaos and chaos is the vibe. You know, it's all like what happened at the Oscars. It's because it's chaos. It's a chaos fueled year. The vibe is chaos, fashion, the vibe is chaos. Celebrity couples the vibe is chaos. You know, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly. That is chaos. That is pure chaos. Courtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, that shit is okay. Kate, that is chaotic energy. And now that I started looking at everything through the vibe of chaos, I'm like, everything makes so much more sense to me. I'm like, oh yeah, of course, it's because it's because of chaos. It's chaos. And I'm like weirdly at peace in the chaotic now. And that's the most whoo whoo thing I've ever said in my life. But it hits right. Yeah. It feels it feels right to me. I think some of the sleeves continuing to be crazy while fashion is like, I don't know, try these pants. Fashion is chaos. Everything is chaos. And even the new Batman is chaotic. It's all chaos. So what did that chani Nichols say that horoscope lady?.

"But right now, as you know, the precious resources to dock at one of these ports and unload your stuff. And so here you are wasting wasting those moments by not loading goods in and just putting in crates of nothing. And you use those crates to put stuff in it from China or another country. They come back. It's outrageous. And we want to be a country that makes stuff invents things and experts to the world. And to do that, yes, you've got to have people who have the great ideas and are allowed, no matter where they come from, no matter where they grew up, allowed to go to school and get jobs and do that. And you also need to have an infrastructure system transportation system that works. And weirdly, because I don't think it's the first thing anyone thinks that also involves people who only ships and they're all foreign owned pretty much 99% aren't ripping us off. That's a very succinct sum. And you would rarely hear me say this, but kudos to senator thune. Massage, it's very cool that you guys are working together on that. I also recently learned that the capitol has 252 male sculptures and only 14 female sculptures, senator, what is being done about that? Yes, Erin, well, a lot has been done as you know, a number of sculptures have come down of people with confederate ties and the like. But to me that it doesn't end there, right? What it should be about is adding new faces and new people and making sure we remember our heritage, whether it is the roles of park statue, we want to also add one of Harriet Tubman. There was a bill that I'm supportive of. Thurgood Marshall, many things we can do there. But the other piece of it is women. Think of it 200 sculptures and only 14 women you walk around here, little girls walk around here that are actually believe they can be president one day. And then all they see is a bunch of old guys, okay? So what we did is I thought actually justice Ginsburg's daughter and granddaughter came to see me right after she died and they said we really would love to honor our mom and grandma. And I said, of course, and then I thought to myself, well, if we're going to honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we should also honor justice O'Connor, because she was the first woman on the Supreme Court. And so I got a group of senators, including Susan Collins, who just announced her support, of course, for judge Jackson. And women led the bill, and we put the bill in, we gathered the support in the Senate. We passed in Senate just passed in the House. President Biden's going to sign it into law. And I had so much fun the other night I got to call Jane Ginsberg..

"And my brother is a public defender and he was so excited that there's an actual public defender who's going to be on the court. Yeah, that's a good point Aaron because think about they all get in that room. And they discuss cases. They should. They've always done it that way. And for the first time in history, in the room where it happens, where there are actually making decisions. There will be someone with a public defender background. That's so exciting. So this is less fun, less exciting, less celebratory last week. It was widely reported that Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas wife, Jenny, sent a flurry of, I'm just calling it unhinged, kind of unhinged text to then White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, urging him to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. All this while her husband was ruling on cases directly related to his wife's pet causes, which makes clarence Thomas look pretty corrupt. So how do you solve a problem like Jenny Thomas? You are just, I guess you have this podcast because you ask questions in a very interesting way. So let's start with this. What happened is unbelievable. You have the wife of a sitting Supreme Court Justice, who is sending tax asking the chief of staff to then president Trump asking a sitting president's chief of staff to overturn a legal election basically basically supporting an insurrection when she knows the cases are going to come before her husband. So step back a second. If that happened with any other federal judge, they would be legally bound under the ethics rules to what we call recused themselves, to not be involved in a case. Every other federal judge, not just a federal judges. Why not the Supreme Court? Will they have taken the position that these ethics rules don't apply to them? And that includes, by the way, taking honorarium going on fancy trips, all kinds of things. So the first thing it cries out for is, of course, any recursed himself going forward on election case. The second thing it calls out for is ethics rules, something I've been long advocating for Chris Murphy as a bill that I am a sponsor of and making sure that they have ethics rules too because the ethics rules actually say if a family member, a family member is doing something that creates an appearance of impropriety or the judge can't be impartial. They have to recuse themselves from the case. By the way, Thomas himself recused himself from a case involving a school when his son went there..

"Ryan. I'm alys mastromonaco. Susan Collins announced Wednesday that she is a yes on judge Jackson for the Supreme Court. Literally the least she could do. So in commemoration of that, Alyssa, what drink do we send to somebody to congratulate them for doing the least? Okay, so Mai Tai would be my favorite celebration for a drink, but she doesn't deserve that because it requires too much effort. So I see we send her a screwdriver with airplane orange juice. A screwdriver with airplane orange juice, I say a vodka soda 'cause you can just like, fine. So fast. So fast, a vodka soda is screwdriver, whatever, for Susan Collins, for doing the very least, to confirm one of the most qualified and incredible nominees to the Supreme Court. We have seen in my memory, she easily could have not, so I mean, we'll still give her, you know. Yay. Yay. I mean, every single day, I go down the street, not lighting garbage cans on fire. Where's my Mai Tai? This week, we're joined by senator Amy Klobuchar, Kieran diel and julissa arce.
'History in the Making' Is the Repeat Narrative in Senate Hearings
"Here's the model. Here's the drum beat we've been hearing all week all month. I guess we'll be hearing it for the rest of our lives. History in the making. You've been nominated by President Biden as the first black woman to serve on the Supreme Court. And who also happens to be a black woman. It's about time that we have a highly qualified, highly accomplished black woman on the Supreme Court. You're the first black woman, and it's long past time. Can I wait a minute, Amy Klobuchar, hold on there, Cory, but hold on spartacus, wait a minute, wait a minute, a Maisie hirono. She's the first black woman to be nominated and confirm potentially for the U.S. Supreme Court, but what is a woman? Well, that's what she was asked by senator Marsha Blackburn.

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.

"amy klobuchar" Discussed on The View
"And of course watch us every day on. Abc still ahead star. M j rodriguez on how her historic emmy nomination is already a huge win for the transgender community. Welcome back as the war. Over new voting laws heats up. Senator amy klobuchar just had the senate rules committee leave the capital for the first time in two decades to fight for the rights of of georgia voters. And that's not that's not the only battle she's taking on right now. Please welcome senate on my gosh amy clovinger. Welcome back senator. Sunny has a first question. Okay great thank you. Great great to see you senator. You know we were just discussing the politicization of the virus masks vaccines and my view. This is something that has come from the right. And certainly the disinformation in. My view has come from places outlets like fox news right now. You have one hundred percent of both of democrats in both chambers of congress that are vaccinated however in the house you only have forty four point. Eight percent of house members republican house members that have been vaccinated unfortunately marjorie taylor. Green congresswoman was suspended from twitter on monday because of the misinformation of in nineteen. She put out there. What is your answer to. Why has this been politicized. And what can we do about it. Well i think. I listened to the discussion you guys had and i think every point was actually good in that our goal right now is to get everyone vaccinated in any way and message possible. Some people listen to dolly parton. Some people are going to listen to barack obama and we need to get the information out and the misinformation is hurting us in such a big way literally there are now. I was listening to megan. Talk about her baby. There are babies that are getting sick. There are young children. I was reading about mississippi on ventilators and so getting people vaccinated. I've literally thought creatively myself. Maybe we need billboards everywhere about the percentage that are dying that are vaccinated and the percentage. Which is you know is infinitesimal. That are vaccinated. We are at a moment in time where we've got to be open to every new idea here and one of the best ideas is just stop. The misinformation sean hannity gets a vaccine. That's great but let's get it out to all his people Hospital workers anything we can do to incentivize that businesses. Many of them are actually requiring people to get back scenes. Universities are doing it. I think bit by bit. That's what we have to do and at the same time the misinformation on the internet which is something. I'm personally taking on is outrageous. These are the biggest richest companies in the world that control these platforms and they've got to take this crap off and we are in a public health crisis. We still are. We've seen major improvement thanks to the vaccines ingenuity of people biden administration. Getting this out. But this is this holding back. Two thirds of the people that are not vaccinated. Believe something that they read on the internet. That's all the facts. I need a kaiser foundation report. So i'm going to introduce a bill to limit the misinformation on vaccines by saying you guys are liable if you don't take it off your platforms. Senator i agree. They're actually more likely to remove a breastfeeding shot than they are to remove. Some of this information shows you how misguided it is but you spent the past few days in georgia holding voting rights. Townhall with stacey abrams and sharing the senate rules committees. I field hearing twenty years where you heard directly from those impacted by the state's voter suppression laws. What did you take away from. Yesterday's hearings voting is a fundamental right of all americans. And i know a little bit about this because my state has the highest voter turnout in the country. And the one thing i've learned we've elected democratic governors republican governors and jesse ventura. And what i've learned from this is when more people vote their part of the franchise but when they're disenfranchised like they're doing with this law in georgia and over four hundred bills to disenfranchise voters and to limit their freedoms have been introduced. Now twenty-eight a pass georgia's exhibit a. Is an outrage. It's not just denying voters water in line. Which is completely ridiculous when they were in line last time. Five hours seven hours stacey abramson. I heard from these voters. It's also saying we're going to limit the number drop-off boxes we're going limit. How you can do vote by mail. And guess what the runoffs that we require. That's the final election between the candidates. We're going to take that time down. This is what the law says in georgia to twenty eight days and you can't register to vote during that time period anymore. That's twenty nine days and you can't vote on weekends that during the runoff that is just a small part of the georgia law and why we need basic federal rights in the for the people act which is firmly grounded in the constitution to give people the right to vote and make it clear regardless of your zip code. You can vote. Okay and what senator any right. Thinking person knows that there needs to be federal regulations regarding voting at this point. But it doesn't look like it's going to happen. It's going to come. yeah. I mean it's gonna come down to mansion in cinema. It's going to come down to then. What are you going to do about that. Can't they heard these cats. come on. imagine this cat's okay. I'm going to put that out of my mind. Whoopi okay. So here's what we got our joy. Here's what we've got. We have got many paths and the first is that we're negotiating center mansion stacey. Abrams lent her support to that. Negotiated package with basic federal rights. That was the first hurdle the second is the procedure and he's indicated a willingness to look at the standing filibuster would require our colleagues on. The republican side. Do have blocked the debate on this to actually stand there and Against voting rights day after day after day we can limit the filibuster carve out as we call it to this kind of voting rights legislation..

"Pelosi formed select committee to investigate the capital riots and yesterday republican leader kevin mccarthy announced his five appointments three of whom had actually voted to overturn the election results including trump loyalists. Jim jordan. Do you think speaker pelosi should veto any of these appointments. And do you have any hope that in the absence of a formal commission. This committee will lead to anything productive. America deserves better than these appoint bees. But i believe speaker. Pelosi will make the best decision. I like speaker pelosi. I wanted to see and nine eleven style commission but the senate republicans refuse to do that. I think that would have been the best. This is the next best thing and she'll make the right decision. I think the bigger bigger issue for me is that we get all the information we need out of this so this never happens again. We did our part in the senate with our bipartisan committee. That senator blunt. And i did with centers portman and peters and out of that. We actually got a bunch of recommendations for the capital. It was focused on that including getting a new police. Chief which i hope will happen. Very quickly We also are going to give that police chief the power to call in the national guard without making four phone calls which is exactly what happened that day better coordination better intelligence-sharing and now what this select committee can do regardless of of really. I feel very strongly about the fact that lives. Cheney is on there which i think is a good thing. Jamie raskin is on there and several others. That i think will do their jobs. This committee can really look at the underlying causes. They can look at all kinds of things related to the lead up into this and what happened with the military and other things and we focus pretty much on the capitol building which was our jurisdiction. And i'm really pleased that they're moving on this select committee because i still remember just walking through that broken glass with the vice president pence and senator blunt and two young women holding mahogany box filled with the last app the last electoral ballot and we went there. And we'd finished our job last night and standing on that inaugural stage and i remember talking to you the next day with spray paint at the bottom of the columns makeshift windows behind us. Because we were going to take back that platform will part of taking back. Our democracy is getting to the bottom of what happened on january six. indeed indeed it as senator. We only have a minute left left. But i wanted to ask because a lot of people on the left is pushing to supreme court justice. Stephen brian to retire a lot of things are coming up very shortly issues about guns and abortion etc. Would you say that. should he retire now at. That's going to be his decision. He is an incredible jurist. And but i do believe when i listened to an interview. He did on this. He said the factors for him are as health. Which of course is a factor. The second is the court the court itself the makeup of the court. I think that's what he means the functioning of the court. But i also think for my perspective that means getting a justice on the court and that's why i have recommended that if he's going to retire he do it sooner rather than later Because we have seen all the games that have been played on supreme court justices and if for the court. I think he's got to make that decision sooner rather than later. Our thanks to senator amy klobuchar. We love when you come on. It's always a good discussion..

"Hey welcome back. We're talking about the american academy of pediatrics. Add advising that all cans and teaches wear masks in school. So you joy this conversation. We've been having for awhile. What's your thought on it. Yes i believe that everybody should be mandated that vaccination should be mandated particularly in schools and hospitals. I mean i don't want my grandson going back to school. In september with people are not vaccinated the custodians the teachers the the whole staff. Everybody should be or else. They should get another job in my opinion. Okay and i believe that's true in hospitals and the reason that you have many people unvaccinated besides the fear of the vaccine and is this misinformation. That's coming out of facebook and fox news. I don't care what anybody says yes. Democrats are probably problematic. Also if you talk about people in new york but republicans are the ones who are spewing the lies they are the ones spewing the misinformation. It's interesting to me. That steve doocy and hannity have now come out to take the vaccines. are they. Getting some kind of stock in pfizer. What is provoking this. I'd like to know of a sudden. Are they afraid. That after joe biden said that these these outlets are killing people that maybe they will be responsible in the future for lying to people every day. This is national and international health problem. It should be dealt with just like that right. I got listen. I before i go to you meghan. I just want to say things. That's bothering me is i. Don't want unvaccinated teachers unless there's a medical reason that they have for not getting vaccinated. I don't want teachers in the schools who are unvaccinated. Particularly because all of these new variants are flying around. And we don't know what's going to affect and the little ones have not been vaccinated at all now. Megan i see that you want you have something to say. Yeah i mean i'm with you. What the idea of my child's getting the corona virus the delta variant or. Something like that i would. I would die i. It's it's my worst nightmare. And i can't put a mask on ten month old so like there's a lot of issues going on in this isn't political and it shouldn't be political we again. It is not just fox news. I think maybe i'm not being clear. A thirty nine percent of the bronx is unvaccinated. As compared to much higher rates and other boroughs as i said in new york city third of hospital workers are not vaccinated. There's all these demographics and statistics about different. Excuse me of our population in different areas that. Go along lines of racially socio economically. This isn't just simply a republican problem. And again i implore people on the left and the right to stop making this political. Because honestly i just as we talked about. And we've talked about at length on this show. The opioid overdoses saw the highest raised. Ever in the united states american history last month over one hundred thousand people died of opioid overdoses. This country cannot withstand other lockdowns are a lot of different ways to die of cove. I implore the white house. I employed this show to be intellectually honest wire. Hospital workers not getting vaccinated. Why are democrats. Why are citizens of the bronx not getting vaccinated. I don't know enough about politics in new york city but i know that district is in the bronx. If that's her district. What what are you not going. What are you not conveying as well. Like if you have a problem in your district. And i just don't understand why this has to be so much about fox news because it's not the problem for our country and i'm petrified right now. I do not want to go back into lockdowns. I don't have to wear masks anywhere. And i don't know what to do with ten month old. Who can't isolated in the way that might be asked of me soon because of socially i'm worried about the ramifications that will happen lock term. Please stop making the so political. This is an american problem. It's a national problem. It's an international problem and we're not going to get better if we just keep blaming fox. News will be right back after this. How did senator amy klobuchar just make his store moves in her battle against restrictive new gop voting laws and. What's her response to.

Mj rodriguez on how her historic emmy nomination is already a huge win for the transgender community. Welcome back as the war. Over new voting laws heats up. Senator amy klobuchar just had the senate rules committee leave the capital for the first time in two decades to fight for the rights of of georgia voters. And that's not that's not the only battle she's taking on right now. Please welcome senator on my gosh amy clovinger. Welcome back senator. Sunny has first question okay. Great thank you great. Great to see you. Senator were actually discussing the politicization of the virus masks vaccines and in my view. This is something that has come from the right. And certainly the disinformation in. My view has come from places in outlets like fox news right now. You have one hundred percent of both a democrats in both chambers of congress that are vaccinated however in the house. You only have forty four point. Eight percent of house members republican house members that have been vaccinated unfortunately marjorie taylor. Green congresswoman was suspended from twitter on monday because of the misinformation of covert nineteen. That she put out there. What is your answer to. Why has this been politicized. And what can we do about it. Well i think. I listened to the discussion you guys had and i think every point was actually good in that our goal right now is to get everyone vaccinated in any way and message possible. Some people listen to dolly parton. Some people are gonna listen to barack obama and we need to get the information out and the misinformation is hurting us in such a big way literally there are now. I was listening to megan. Talk about her baby. There are babies on. That are getting sick. There are young children. I was reading about mississippi on ventilators and so getting people vaccinated. I've literally thought creatively myself. Maybe we need billboards everywhere. About the percentage that are dying that are not vaccinated and the percentage. Which is you know is infinitesimal. That are vaccinated. We are at a moment in time where we've got to be open to every new idea here and one of the best ideas is just. Stop the misinformation sean. Hannity gets a vaccine. That's that's great but let's get it out to all his people Hospital workers anything we can do to incentivize that businesses. Many of them are actually requiring people to get back scenes. Universities are doing it. I think bit by bit. That's what we have to do and at the same time the misinformation on the internet which is something. I'm personally taking on is outrageous. These are the biggest riches companies in the world that control these platforms and they've got to take this crap off and we are in a public health crisis. We still are. We've seen major improvement. Thanks to the vaccines. The ingenuity of people biden administration. Getting this out but this is this is holding us back. Two thirds of the people that are not vaccinated..

"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.

"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.

There was examples of how hard it is to have a video product in an audio company. Anyway ticket at youtube dot com slash crooked media. That's the website all right. Let's get to the news. All fifty senate republicans filibustered the for the people act on tuesday refusing to even allow a debate on the voting rights and election reform proposal. That all fifty democrats now support senator. Joe manchin who had been. The lone democratic holdout voted to move forward after his party agreed to several compromises designed to get republicans on board like adding a national voter. Id but alas joe's gop pals told him to fuck off to which joe said sure okay and since mansion and curious and cinema keep saying over and over that they refuse to get rid of the filibuster. We are now at an impasse on voting rights election reform and pretty much. Every other piece of joe biden agenda that doesn't directly affect the federal budget. Dan you wrote a spicy message of yesterday Where you engaged in your usual monday morning. Quarterbacking tell us. Why do you think democrats shit the bed here. And what could they have done differently. We that for a setup that just toss it up there. I want to stipulate that this vote was always gonna fail right. There is nothing more on brand for the republicans then to use a legislative loophole designed to block the majority to stop a debate on democracy. Right perfect that was always gonna happen. But the point of this vote was to highlight republican obstruction. To essentially put together with proof to joe manchin kherson cinema untold others including perhaps chris coons of delaware that you could not work with republicans on that they were going to block it under all scenarios but the problem with it was that we have known for months. The mansion was not going to support the current version of the for the people act and we still do not have a deal with him to have him on board to support the motion to proceed until hours before the vote. And what that did is it. Took the conversation for much of the run up to the vote from republican obstruction and sort of hatred for democracy to democratic weakness democratic dissension release. We leaned in to the off mocked in rarely but sometimes true meam of in disarray. Like what i think this brought forward is to things that are worth noting the i is. There has never really been a real plan for how we're going to get this done. Two paths one involves getting people to flip on the filibuster. The other involves getting ten republicans. And there's been a lot of confident sort of failure is not an option. We're going to get this done. At the most important generation and the first response the most important fight in a generation is a doomed to fail procedural vote where you have not done the hard work of getting all members of the caucus onboard beforehand and. That is problematic in it. It makes me very concerned about where this is going. Our ability the sun in even if we can't get it done or ability to successfully make the case of the public about the dangerous republicans present to democracy and majority rule in this country so in terms of the question what basically chuck schumer could have done differently I guess. Joe biden in the white house to an extent your answer would be. We basically should've figured out our shit beforehand long ago In terms of a bill or a compromise bill that all fifty senate democrats could get behind including mansion so the mansion compromiser have just come much earlier in your view is what you're saying but also democrats have been agreed to the match on compromise yet either like we have known forever that the for the people as though it seems like it seems like everyone's going to be on board with that eventually. Yes but that they're not there yet like there was a position where they could have adopted that before the vote but there was democ demagogued resistance to that as well. Yeah you don't have to adopt it because it's only a motion to proceed to bill but the big thing here is the for the people act is based on an hr one. A piece of legislation passed the general twenty nineteen. There was a message. Bill it had no chance of becoming law..

Amy Klobuchar on 'Antitrust'
"Joining us. Now senator amy klobuchar from washington. She is the senior. Senator from minnesota and her new book is called antitrust taking on monopoly. 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.

Then which is typical of a lot of these cases. The courts threw it out. Basically and said oh it's the other similar and then it took years for a generic and another competitor to develop

"Guess she's from Oklahoma she lost that too Amy Klobuchar's Amy Klobuchar's from Minnesota WHR was leading the pack behind Amy Klobuchar was Bernie Sanders in the polls before she dropped out and endorsed Joe Biden then Joe Biden wins Joe Biden wins Minnesota so I think trump understands this he understands what he's got to be rooting for it's just mayhem and chaos in the democratic primary and I think that's what we're getting you know there's a little bit of a divided now among conservatives over whether conservative should be rooting for Biden in the primary or for Bernie and Edem has this view that he's voting or routing rather or not voting he's rooting for Joe Biden because as he says it would be so terrible for the country if one of the major political parties is actually getting behind Bernie Sanders this radical crazy socialist it would be so terrible if by some fluke you know corona viruses of a big deal in the economy collapses let's say that Bernie Sanders would actually become president so he says the downside is so great that we just can't possibly risk that's we gotta referred Joe Biden I have a little bit of a different take which is all I'm I'm looking at the upside I'm saying if Bernie Sanders is the nominee then Donald Trump is going to win all fifty seven states plus American Samoa and probably Greenland which we might annex in the meantime I just think it'll be a blowout I I don't think the American people want to elect this crazy socialist I think the apple file on him is very large and of course anything can happen in politics there is some risk in that but I'm I'm looking at the upside here and I I am a little bit worried about Joe Biden Joe Biden doesn't stand for anything he has no beliefs is perfectly acceptable to people and he's been around politics a very long time he knows how to survive so I do think there were some kind of economic downturn that would give a huge advantage to Joe Biden going into twenty twenty where is it might not matter as much with Bernie Sanders because even if the economy goes south people are gonna look at Bernie and say well I'd rather have a recessed American economy then turn into Havana something turned into the Soviet Union so that's the the horse race right now I think what president trump is clearly doing is rooting for Bernie Sanders that's why he says nice things about Bernie and it's why he is constantly going after a Joe Biden and many Mike before many Mike dropped out I think what president trump sees here is that there is not just a left right divide but there's an establishment anti establishment divide in politics and president trump can ride you can win over the right wing voters but he can also win over the anti establishment voters the populist voters the people who like any Sanders so he's trying to go a little softer on them and just make it such that if Joe Biden does get the nomination which is on track to do at the moment that maybe those Bernie voters won't be so motivated to vote against him in November maybe they would actually vote for president trump in November this race is going to get really really tough it's going to get really really ugly and conservatives are just gonna love it in this is really what we're hoping for I saw actually yesterday that the chairwoman former chairwoman of the DNC Donna Brazile was getting furious about this whole thing I think Republicans are having a whole lot more fun in the democratic primary and Democrats are having we will get to why we will get to that moment we will get to that what's broken down in the Democratic Party that has led them into this crazy battle between a two seventy seven seventy eight year old a socialist in an empty suit we'll get to that in just a second but we're gonna take a quick break I'm Michael Knowles host of the Michael Knowles show podcast filling in for the Ben Shapiro show we will be right back in just a moment do not touch that radio dot K.
