"Speaking of the trump administration a big win for the common sense conservatism that we saw from the trump administration. The us supreme court yesterday handed the bite administration. A major defeat the biden administration trying to block a lower court ruling keeping the trump administration's remain in mexico policy for illegals the unsigned order stated. The biden white house failed to show that it. It's moved to end. The program was not arbitrary and capricious and so good news for from the supreme court. The three liberal justices were in dissent but the supreme court said that the biden administration likely violated federal law in its attempt to rescind. The trump program informally known as remain in mexico from senator. Tom cotton this is a victory for america and a defeat for the by administration a defeat for the human traffickers and a defeat for the cartels. So that's good news. I wanna get your take to pick your brain a little bit over whether or not you admire us. Senators like lindsey graham and ted cruz in their journey with donald trump. Let's start with charles charles. Welcome how are you sir. i'm fine. I admire now. I'll tell you why. When they started off they were against trump. They heavy dated. They didn't have a lot of data. Because was the politician. He never held off. They went on what they thought and believed he might do. And they've been. They thought they believe they might be able to better. Once he got an office improved he was actually getting things done. Our country is moving in the right direction. They fell behind that using that data. And i respect that what i don't stay on. Somebody who sees the day to see like lifting republic like west left wing democrats standing their ground even though they stay here. We're gonna stay in here because this is our principal prints rhino or or or or rhino or or rhino republicans. The did the same thing or right over rhinos. Everything talk about mitt romney. no list. don't remember kidding no. i don't really stand in one spot. No matter how wrong they are. These guys saw they were mistaken and they changed with the time and got behind what was working. And i think that's exactly. That's exactly how i feel charles. I feel the same way. I don't agree with a lot of things that senator graham listen. I'm deeply concerned. I wanna listen to this tucker. Carlson monologue we have acute up. I want to hear you know. Have you hear what tucker points out about. senator graham. Supporting joe biden judicial nominees. That's the problem. There's a lot of things. I have got plenty of problems with with mitt romney. But i do you talk about data. The constituents are your data. That's your data. When a us senator realize their voters their constituents support a guy like donald trump lead follow. Get out of the way. It's got a different perspective. Mary margaret. Hey mary margaret. How are you sure you doing. Great appreciate your call. What are you. Where are you on the path that ted cruz and lindsey graham took with regards to the president trump. sure i'm in atlanta. I believe the lengthy grams a snake. A i question character. He's a great friend vita he sabotage trump many times great example the woodward interview whereas i feel like ted cruz very strong character believe that he truly represents we. The people and i believe that has a strong character. He's demonstrates that time and time. I understand exactly where you're coming from. And i hear from folks feel the same way. Let's i think tucker. Carlson feels the same way here. He was last night at ten. This is tucker's monologue. A pretty. Scathing takedown of senator graham during the final few minutes of his number one rated programme on fox news channel. We'll help ensure that that power goes completely unchecked. Here's what you wouldn't expect. And that's one of the most prominent members of the so conservative party to spend his time. Helping the baiju administration do that. But that's happening. It's exactly what's happening this summer. The senate judiciary committee voted to advance. Myrna presents comment confirmation every republican on the panel voted. No except for one who that was. It was lindsey graham of south carolina. Now why would lindsey graham support. The confirmation of someone like bernard press. Answer that question. it helps don't it. This is hardly an isolated case. We checked lindsey. Graham is the only republican on the judiciary committee who was not voted to reject a single judge. The by administration has proposed. No matter how crazy they are for procedural reasons in a sentence split. Fifty fifty lindsey. Graham support matters very much senate aides. Tell us that. Because of lindsey graham one man the biden administration is able to rush. It's nominees through the senate confirmation process faster than any other president in memory so the most radical president of our lifetimes gets the most judges confirmed. Thanks to lindsey. Graham those nominees include someone that many democrats to the supreme court. Soon that'd be. An activist called ken brown jackson jackson former trial judge. Who spent the last four years running. Political orders for the benefit of jerry. Nadler nancy pelosi. For example bram once wrote an opinion and comparing the previous administration to illegal monarchy. That decision was so crazy. That the dc court of appeals which leads the left reversed not once but twice. But it was good enough for lindsey. Graham who voted in favor of brown's confirmation. That's because lindsey graham whom case you didn't notice spent most of last year begging for your money money from conservatives at all hours on cable. Television has no problem installing judges who hate his constituents. And you shouldn't be surprised by that of years ago. Grandma admitted in an interview with politico. That is overriding. Political ambition was to quote stay relevant not to represent his voters or keep the left from destroying the country but to ingratiate himself with the people in power in advance zone interests. So in that. Respect lindsey graham has done exactly what he said he would. The question is why are conservatives continuing to promote him and allowing him to continue to sit on the judiciary committee. Well we'd love to ask that question of lindsey graham himself you know what's particularly awkward in the show following tucker. My friend sean. Hannity show senator lindsey. Graham was a guest house that work. I'd love to go to the fox news channel christmas party and see tucker so interesting. So so sean. And laura ingram are obviously very tight and every time you know he could tell when sean hands off to to laura ingram. It's a love fest. let your heart be troubled. Here comes laura..
"baiju administration" Discussed on MAD MONEY W/ JIM CRAMER
"Got your back. Let's talk green pure hydrogen. I'm a big believer. Hydrogen fuel cells. I think this could be the cleaner greener fuel source that the world's been craving for when it comes to invest in hardware. Most of these stocks are dixon. Expensive insanely volume. Wanna hurt you. But the are some real companies real earnings that have made huge investments in companies linked. Come and see the leany maker. Vengeance for all sorts of vehicles especially trucks dominant. Thanks to a series of acquisitions over the past. Five years come as as simple impressive portfolio of hydrogen technologies. Hey look they were behind the first hydrogen-powered train the virgin powered aircraft hydrogen fueling station and by the way early this year. They built the world's largest electoral electrolysers. That's the queen way to extract from one. So let's take a closer look with tom linebarger. He is the chairman. Ceo of cummins to get a better read on his hydrogen ambitions and is broader vision for the future. Mr linebarger welcome to make money. Thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here. Okay so tom let me. Just start by talking about what we could be saying here. I could start the conversation by talking about engine. Growth being up sixteen percent distribution ten percent components fifteen percent power systems twelve all double digits. But you are the leader in this free world right now. Because i have to say that. Because the part of the non-free world is also pretty good at it. In what i regard as being the the purest form of energy available green hydrogen. How did you get interested in it. And what's the future for. Well thank you for that. We we are accompanied with innovation at our core. You you talked about engine position that was course one hundred years in the building you know we. We not only develop diesel engines when gasoline engines were the main product in the market but we also made clean diesel engines. Win the clean air act in the. Us came out launch a number of new technologies to cleanup diesel engines. So we love doing innovation and and frankly the next level of innovation is low carbon technology. That's what the planet needs. That's what our markets need. And so twenty. Years ago or more. I worked on my first hydrogen-fuel-cell project it didn't succeed. Unfortunately it was too expensive in. Didn't live long enough. But when when the technology started to get to a place where it was durable enough to work for our kind of tough applications. We back in in a big way as you said we made several acquisitions both in fuel cells solid oxide fuel cells as well as electrolysers and we now hydrogen storage tanks. So we're in the full range of technologies to be able to provide both mobile power applications as well as stationary power applications and then to provide the clayton hydrogen itself to electrolytes. Now i put it when you mentioned electrolyte batteries here is. We don't want to be able to create green hydrogen by using bad carbon. So to speak. And you your company particularly understand that you could create clean hydrogen at a at a very very low price but you still be destroy the environment and that you're not telling you don't tolerate that now that's really the point of green hydrogen so there is a lot of hydrogen already sold into many industries fertilizer. Steel petrochemicals but the hydrogens made from natural gas which means it's got a carbon atoms at its core so what we're wanting to do is produce hydrogen with no carbon in it and so then we wanna use renewable energy than we wanna use electrolysers which basically takes water with along with this this Renewable energy and creates hydrogen and oxygen. That hydrogen is then green. Hydrogen weaken then put energy into that and then use that energy fuel cells we can also use it for storage which is a huge benefit in renewable grid so hydrogen is a lot of uses in this green economy that you talked about and that's why we made the big investments. We did many many years ago. I spoke with both westport and your company about a joint venture with natural gas. And i know that that deal can run out by the end of this year. I thought it made sense. That was a period. We to bridge fuel. You obviously are are just going to try to go through that which is still dirty and go right to the cleaners. Some would say the without government intervention in this country. It just can't happen. Is there enough govern intervention in that infrastructure. Bill to make you feel that this is something the us can catch up to your opponent. Honestly not yet. There's a lot of interest by the baiju administration but there's much more to do. I do think. Europe is ahead of the us. Today in the hydrogen area and they are putting more investment in trying to get low-carbon technologies especially renewable energy hydrogen even battery electric. They're putting more government infrastructure government investment into it. I think the us needs to do some of that. In order to make to catch up really into make sure we remain global leaders in these critical industries like trucks and energy and other things like that and by the way it's not just subsidies is also infrastructure it's technology development. It's the whole range of investments that we need but most importantly it's a cost on carbon. It's very difficult today to compete with something. That has a lot of carbon in it. That's a hundred year old industry with a new technology if there's no cost to add carbon to the atmosphere so somehow or other we're gonna have to put a cost on carbon if we're really going to make level investments. We need to at the speed. We need to to make sure we can meet the paris climate to have a partner in mike worth at chevron and there's another person like you dedicated to clean skies though that that partnership can make a great deal different can it sure can and by the way we need arts. I need to say that. It's clearly as i can. There's so much to do here. There's infrastructure bill. I systems to build out and companies like chevron had a lot of capability. That's why we formed a partnership with them. We also did one. Must sign up back in china that same recent. We're we're trying to partner in many places we can because there's so much to do to get this agreement. Economy going and hydrogen has so much potential. We need everybody's or in the water. Franken said yvonne moss laughs at you and he. He says that it's not the right for you. And i both know that this is what scales. And we gotta make this work and i wanted just. I'm so proud of the commons is taken the leader leadership. Because you guys know how important trucking is trying to make the skies greener versus grayer. I wanna thank you.

"Why am i. On the oc seizinger a dimly lit room people fouls the armstrong and getty indications compound and. Hey everybody today run of the tutelage of our general manager the taliban apparently where do we even start on this store taken over new jersey next california's which direction coming from good lord where to even start on the story absolutely amazing weekend. We're off on friday. I would have never guessed. This much can change in that many days but it did and And we'll talk about it and we'll also take your tax four one five nine podcast. Afdc but seriously where do you start. The disconnect between the disconnect between the people on the ground who know what's happening in the word from those above them who fashion our perception. What's happening usually to their own advantage and blatantly. Dishonestly one of the many things that i want. Wanna talk about and i. I hope that a lot of focus ends up on. So i was taking in The sky whitlock who wrote a new book about the he was behind the afghan papers. The washington post thing from a couple years ago and now he's got a book about it and i'm guessing that he and his publisher timed it around what they thought was going to be the withdrawal of from afghanistan that because had been good timing for that book to come out. Because it's coming out here in a couple of weeks. It's not officially out yet. They missed it by a little a bit because it only took six days for the taliban to take the contract but anyway so i saw some interviews with him. And i did a little reading from his book and watching some Speeches he gave and to me and thankfully the media has mostly not gone for the first time. And i don't know how many years the media has mostly not gone into. Its know trump bad biden. Good or vice versa thing on s. Everybody's just like this is just a disaster all the way around all the way around a disaster. Everybody's to blame is sucks. It's embarrassing what the hell And so there has been a heavy dose of biden. Owns this from some survive surprising source no doubt and So this whitlock guy on the afghan him talking about how this is. This is the way it's been for most of the twenty years as you just said a complete disconnect from the ground to the top and that's what needs to be looked at. How do you avoid this happening. Whether it's your own company or the warn afghantistan. How do you find out at the top. What is actually freaking going on. So i've been watching rich angle for nbc news. Who's one of the best foreign correspondents. There is and he keeps saying with like a a a a smart on his face. Not a happy smirk. Unhappy smart richard. Can you believe this happened. Yes yes i can. This is what. I've been reporting for the last several weeks and several months richer ingle. Are you surprised this happened. So vast no no. I'm not. This is what i've been saying was going to happen for the last several months. Every news report if you go back and look at them this is. What i've said was going to happen. I've been in all these provinces and all these towns i've been talking to taliban. This is exactly what i said was going to happen. And so and then how do you end up with. Joe biden at the top and the people beneath him saying no way. This is going to be another saigon. Even behind the scenes they're saying kabul could fall in six to nine months or six to nine days. I mean how how are. How does richard angled know so much more about a war then. The president of the united states. And how do you say. It's a congenital condition of humankind that said the lesson is learned over and over again through history site. Vietnam if you want. That's an obvious example but an actually similar in a lot of ways. But i think every great power goes through this there is just something about the upward flow of intelligence and how it's it's massaged in sunshine need as it gets higher and higher and the people at the top. Well sometimes. they don't know what's actually going on on the ground and sometimes they just continue these sun shining. You know process to disseminate it to the ultimate ruler. Which is allegedly us. The people we the people. It's shocking yet unsurprising when we asked for accounts from guys who participated in the training of the afghan troops last week unanimous unanimous nearly hilarious stories about how utterly incompetent they weren't how hopeless situation was. And yet you. Just you don't get a hint of that out of leaders it seems to me. There's two completely different stories of what's going on right now. One you can argue over the policies of getting out and trump wanting to make a deal with the taliban biden wanting to continue that and get out whether that was a good idea. Bad idea even if you think it was a good idea though. How do you end up doing it like this. How do you end up doing it to where you're smashing computers in your own embassy. In burning things as people frantically get to the airport under gunfire. i mean. Nice just ridiculous. So here's here's the to The most important thing you might not know unless you follow our twitter feed because mike. Lions made me aware of this on saturday night. I think as he responded to our twitter feed. And then i saw general mcafferty of nbc reiterated yesterday and the only time. I've heard anybody mention this the entire weekend up until today. We are as we speak getting people out of that airport at the talibans pleasure. They are allowing us to do that if they didn't want us to do that. We could not get planes in or out. That is completely up to them. Mike lines tweeted at us over the weekend. He said the real issue is is the taliban gonna let us land leave. He said because we do not have the ability to do that on our own. They now have control of that narrative and it must they must feel like it's in their interest to let us go. Because they don't have to and general beira-mar barry mccaffrey yesterday on. Nbc news. Said i want everybody to understand this point right now because everybody's discussing getting out. The taliban is letting leave we. Aren't we have no What's the term they use and military agency. We have no agency right now. They are allowing something to happen. We're not doing it. We something or the only thing. We have which is enough at this. Point is the full might and fury of the american military and the assurance. That and i'm sure the toothless baiju administration made this clear that if you move on any of our personnel as we evacuate we will come back we will come back will decimate you And it's holding for now. I'm not sure that's the reason the talibans going along with there were some reports over the weekend that we're giving them boatloads of cash and we just plain said here's a million dollars in a briefcase in the cool that's the way they we already gave them. Like ten billion dollars worth of gear cheese those pictures of the taliban driving into towns brand new trucks with brand new guns and everything that we paid for his taxpayer ebb. Another thing that pops into my head. This is one of the first stories. That's on cable news. That has shown up in my real life. And i don't know how long everywhere i went. Hot dog vendor.

"On rate on a special series of conversations called helga the armory conversations these eric everyday conversations with extraordinary people like visual artists. Nick cave actress and disability advocate merrily. Torkington and author jason reynolds. Listen to helga the armory conversations wherever you get podcasts The american dream relies upon the rule of law and a functioning legal immigration system. That was sheriff. Ed gonzales president. Joe biden's nominee to lead immigration and customs enforcement or ice and he was speaking at his senate confirmation hearing on thursday. I have been proud throughout my career as a law enforcement professional to uphold our nation's laws if confirmed as ice director i will be responsible for twenty thousand dedicated men and women who worked every day to guard against threats to our national security public safety and safeguard the integrity of our borders. If confirmed gonzales will be the first senate confirmed head of ice. In more than four years to some conservatives gonzalez record as sheriff for harris county in texas is a major red flag in two thousand seventeen opted out of a partnership with ice. The would've allowed local law enforcement agents to act in a similar capacity to federal immigration officers. And here he is responding to a question from ohio. Senator rob portman about whether he would end the program known as to eighty seven g as the head of ice. This concerns me onto eighty seven. G would you if confirmed wanna terminate two to eighty seven g program. He don't take it works while you didn't want it in your own county for me. It was a local decision. Don't let me i my question is. Would you turn the program. That would not be my intent. But gonzales hasn't just faced pushback from those on the right. A number of immigration advocates. Say gonzales hasn't done enough to reform conditions in harris county jails and it's also worth noting that his county has still worked closely with ice to hold undocumented immigrants up to forty eight hours after their release dates while the agency determines whether to take them into federal custody for more. I'm joined now by camillo. Montage galvez immigration. Report for cbs news. Camilo thanks so much for coming back on the takeaway milissa so who hates them more conservatives or progressives yeah no your introduction was spot on i think if confirmed at gonzales will face a competing views and pressure from left leaning lawmakers but also those On the right who worry that. is will not ramp up enforcement deportations arrests here the interior of the country the by administration certainly has never supported calls from left wing lawmakers to quote abolish ice a but it has moved. Melissa took her tail arrests and deportations issuing directives that narrow who should be paradise for enforcement in other words to be detained and deported from the country so the baiju administration has verse trumper policies. That made everyone here. Who doesn't have legal permission to be in the country. Game a fair game for enforcement The bite administration has instructed ice agents to focus on those who pose a national security threat. those who may pose a threat to public safety as well as recent border crossers migrants. Who are recently Apprehended along the us. Mexico border So he is getting a lot of pushback from conservatives because of these directors that he will have to enforce but he's also getting pushback from progressives who want to see ice tension significantly reduce An ice attention has been increasing in the past few weeks because border agents are transferring more migrants through the interior so on that last point about this narrowing while irritating to conservatives is also insufficient for progressives the aclu released a statement after gonzalez hearing calling his vision for ice deeply disappointing. Are those the primary issues that they had with his remarks. Yeah as you mentioned in your introduction as sheriff of harris county the most populous county in texas it consolidates is actually terminated. A two eighty seven g program. Which is this program. Dates back to clinton era law in. Melissa effectively allows local law enforcement to act as federal immigration officers within certain localities and to interview undocumented immigrants as was green card holders were convicted of certain crimes and to question them about their immigration status and hold them into ice can pick them up. Ed gonzalez set at the time that he terminated this agreement up because he felt that it undermined his department's relationship with the local communities. That's an argument that many democratic cities up make in favor of so-called sanctuary policies. They say that these policies are designed to build trust between local law enforcement and the immigrant communities say serve up but when pressed by republican lawmakers. This week ed gonzalez said that he would not end the program entirely Nationwide because i still has many of these agreements with other local jurisdictions across the country said his was a local decision based on local need so that was very interesting to see and it got as you mentioned a lot of pushback from the aclu which has been calling on the tension and arrests be significantly reduce and that kind of call to localism always sounds to me like a sort of reach across the aisle moment. I live in a county here. North carolina where our first african american elected sheriff Ran on a noncompliance with ice of tickets. And that's that was really part of what brought him into Into that position so it's fascinating to watch on these tensions Emerged now at the national level. Why has it taken so long for there to be a senate confirmed ice head. That is a key question as you mentioned during the trump administration is never had it. Senate confirmed permanent leader. There are always leaders who are serving acting capacity. Just one of those was actually nominated to serve as vice director but president trump hold his nomination up because of a surge in migration at the us mexico border. He said at the time that he wanted to go on a tougher direction in wanted to look for more leadership So that is something that i think was unique to the trump administration. President trump did make clear that he'd like having a officials in acting capacities because he could fire them more easily us. So i think that was a unique element the administration But you know it remains a very certain that a ice officers especially the ones who handle partitions immigration arrests are looking for leadership. They are looking for leaders that will be able to guide them through all of these competing pressures that they have on the agency because as you know many of these progressives want the agency abolished and the binding administration definitely does not support that but it has Issued several restrictions on who these agents can arrest in that has been a polarizing among some agents. Who feel like they're being handcuffed. At least that's what they're saying. So how if ad together this nomination and then one for which the hearing date has not yet been set for tucson arizona. Police chief chris. Magnus what did those two together tell you about. Biden's immigration policy. Well chris magnus is also a local law enforcement official from arizona so he has that law enforcement career and background That i think the by administrations looking for but he also has spoken out against isis enforcement and the trump administration immigration policy. So she he brings up balance being a law enforcement official but one that has expressed sympathy for immigrants that has criticized hardline immigration policy. So i think that is one of the criteria that the vitamin aspersions looking for leaders at the parliament security some officials who can On one hand enforce federal immigration law which is tough difficult task but also Usher in what they call more humane and orderly immigration system camilo manteaux joe gathers an immigration reporter for cbs news camilo. I hope you'll come back and talk about what's going.

Yeah and nate. we haven't forgotten it either Well his explanation of it. Which is our explanation of it is a we are. Birth rate is declining rapidly. In the united states we are not replacing our population quickly enough to prop up ponzi scheme. That is social security and medicare and medicaid. We don't have enough young workers for all the old folks and so we've had to import brown people from central america to pay into social security. And nobody's got up the scam and if that's what's going on nobody's gonna say that out loud right plus the right needs wants cheap labor. The left wants to what they perceived to be probable democratic voters and so the powerful really have no incentive to end this plus. Having an is an issue is a great fundraiser.

Light saying this this this segment looks pretty solid. So just rest easy. next one. A little shaky though so don't give up hope so the Publisher of the washington post did a long opinion piece yesterday on the meet the new boss. Same the oh boss really going. After the biden administration hard publisher of the washington post. Fred ryan swarmed slammed not slammed slammed the biden administration in an opinion piece published for seeking email records belonging to journalists calling its action in an unprecedented assault and american news organizations. I read about this. It is pretty trouble. You have not heard this because it's not him going after trump trump with the you know all the Going after the media and how dangerous it was and people crying tears on msnbc. hitler. He's a new hitler and biden administration is doubling down on this bubba well you remember. The obama administration did stuff like this as well is incredibly not transparent. Yes they're lapdogs. Just lipped lick their heels. So ryan the publisher of the washington post writing about how the the trump administration gone after the phone records of some journalists and then there was a real pushback against that and either trying to figure out who was receiving leaks. Trump is like hitler we heard over and over again biden said that he would not allow this sort of thing. That was un-american fred ryan of the washington post rights however the egregious acts by the outgoing trump justice department and the apparent doubling down on them. During the biden administration should alarm all americans regardless of political persuasion ryan said the actions of the former administration and the subsequent expansion under the biden administration pose a threat to americans ability to powerful officials in check. It's an interesting question. And i'd love to to assemble a panel of really smart in ethical people to discuss. Okay if there are legal leaks happening from government officials and they are going to journalists. Is there a legitimate. Where does it. Where does the where does the balance lie. The proper balance between the proper investigation of illegalities that betray the trust of the american people by the way and the first amendment protection for the free press. That is an interesting topic and it's got nuances. It's not Open and shut to me but it should be treated the same way would be biden's doing it as well as doing it. Heck yeah and my tendency is. I'm noodle limit through canada. Quick and dirty style. Is you gotta protect the free. Press the free press. Is the the penicillin for the the infection of corrupt government. And we can't. We can't play with that. In spite of the fact that they do a crappy job these days at least a lot of them do bomb administration went after him from administration went off after another baiju administrations going after the ongoing theme. Today will be what we were talking about to some extent last segment. And that's ignoring the realities in front of our faces and why government officials do that and there are a couple of reasons number one. There's just protecting the governor own bots.
