"Well let me start out with something that gives me no pleasure to say but the cdc eviction moratorium started under president trump. And i said it was unconstitutional. Then it's a land grab it's in. It's in violation of the fifth amendment to the constitution. It is a taking of private property. The eviction moratorium doesn't keep people in their houses. It keeps people in somebody else's house whether they pay the rent or not so it started under trump Was ruled against and lower courts. But it made it all the way to the supreme court the summertime and five four supreme court. Justices said it's unconstitutional but rather than strike it down. One of those five and this was a great disappointment to me. I don't know what he was thinking. Brett kevin all said well. It's going to end here in a week or two so rather than strike it down. We'll just let it in gracefully as if biden wouldn't just re up And so predictably because cavanaugh said okay. We'll just it's unconstitutional. He was the swing. Vote on this by the way. He said it's unconstitutional. But we'll just let it end when it ends Because he said that then there was all this pressure on congress to renew it last friday. We stayed there an extra day in congress before going on August recess by the way they want me to tell you it's august work. Period instead of recess medically correct form. But it's a lot of my colleagues are playing golf. What have you but before. We went on august recess. They they held us around for an extra day trying to pass an eviction moratorium extension in congress. Which would have made it legal but it would have still been unconstitutional. And we didn't do it. They the democrats have the majority but there weren't even a majority of democrats who would vote for it And so what happened. The the liberal wing of the democrat party leaned on biden and he said in on the day that he directed the cdc to extend it. He said the constitutional scholars. Most of them say it's not legal or constitutional. But we're going to do it anyway because it will take the court some time to catch up with us Basically out running though all that's his strategy on this. Yeah yeah where bret cavenaugh justice cavenaugh. Let the let the law outrun them. I mean it's unbelievable and again you know remember how hard conservatives fought on behalf of judge cavenaugh and now look where it's gone. I'm glad you mentioned that this Cdc moratorium started under trump. I talked about that this morning already and it just burns me up to see all these people these talking heads on twitter Want to blame things on. Democrat democrat Governors in democrat presidents and democratic congress. And all that when we have republican governors and republican legislatures. That are doing the exact same thing in something you said. There are a little bit ago congressman about. Well it's going to end anyway. That's the same mantra. We heard from republican. Legislators well the mass mandate is about to end any way. There's no sense in doing anything about it now. Yeah it ends. And then the next day that tyrant governor can re can reimpose it. You know it's like my colleague representative. Paul gosar said the other day he said if you let government break the law during an emergency. They will create emergencies in order to break the law. Yup and this is the point that we are at. If you look by the way. I i also put this on social media recently. If you look at the percent of hospital beds that are occupied by cova patients..

"Anyway? I don't don't you think that if this were a Republican affair that maybe Tara Reid would have limousines, bringing her from one network to another day after day, telling her story tearfully. I think that you might be saying that. But Tara Reid was yesterday's papers on the news media. They snuffed her out. They discredited her. They've bankrupted her. The left the Democrats, the news media. A ll the same thing. And Tara Reid, who was of course, according to her, and I think I remember Pound me too. We're supposed to believe the women. They had bumper stickers and T shirts and hats and things that you believe the women In fact, Kamala Kama Kama Kama Kama Chameleon. She I think color calm because it's like a comma So I'm just gonna like comma with on the end. Heard Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg and the whole gang trying to straighten out the pronunciation because they're not real good with words and stuff. It takes to take some brainpower to be good with them. Words and all that, but it's just like a comma with an on then they still couldn't understand it because They're really not very bright, but they're paid millions of dollars in media, Teo be stupid and to get things wrong and to misrepresented to tell untruths, you know, that's the role of our media. I guess we are at 888630962586319625 Yesterday's Banner headline in The Washington Post Dr Evil's little playthings. Press releases for the Democrats and the left. The banner headline was in historic Move comma Biden Select Harris for VP. They didn't even want to say calm a lot because it's a camel. Okay, It's like comma. It's really It's like it's like the common cold as I understand it. Then they declared that black women expressed overwhelming level of joy over there overwhelmed black women were Nobody else. Just black women and those who identify as black women, which include a lot of Democrats here, actually, white men kind of strange, but maybe not so much anymore. That's today's Democratic Party on today's banner headline in The Washington Post. Biden and Harris come out swinging. That's exactly the way they described it. When Trump comes out swinging, too. They're always very supportive of the president Coming out swinging and well, they're not really I just made that up by being facetious because of course there They're not treating the Harris the Harris Biden campaign, Madam president, and, uh, you know, Mr Huh? There's areas is a complete goof. Big controversy over the pronunciation or the pronunciation of you Prefer off Pamela Harris Lines that, okay? Was that the wrong part of the world? Maybe that's direct. But it's like a comma. You see, like Kama Kama. Who was that boy? George, I think it was come out kind of Camelia. Is that what that was? Was that karma? That was maybe that was it is a and then maybe I've got this. The Washington Post decided to go with With the word gantlet with the word gantlet. They in the headline here. A grueling gantlet, not gauntlet. They chose to use the medieval discontinued no longer in use archaic spelling of gauntlet and they went with gantlet. Which is kind of strange. I've never seen them do that before. Why not Just use guns? Turns out they're saving ink on the extra letter because they're saving the planet. You know, they're environmentalists. That's actually but you get let people don't use gantlet. People use gauntlet, but the Washington Post Not only in a headline also in the body of the story they used also, and apparently, Pamela is going through a gantlet based on my reading of today's Washington Post its external. They also have a front page story here on the use of the word nasty and it turns out, according to The Washington Post, President Trump Only is is the word nasty and describing women and it's especially hurtful. Remember stick. Heilemann pointed this out yesterday that you can't say nasty if you're talking about women, even though they created an entire fake feminist movement with pink body part hats and all that stuff. And nasty women, T shirts and banners and signs in the nasty women thing, because let's face it. A lot of them are quite nasty. I mean, just just walk by one of them any day. This is the left that don't have Western hygiene habits for the most part. But they're very upset at the Washington Post on the news media that the president used the word nasty. He said that Pamela was nasty Tio Brett Kavanaugh to justice bread cabin if you will. At the time. Judge Brett Kevin are now justice now U. S Supreme Court justice bread. Kevin said that Camilla was nasty, nasty. I'm saying I'm still working out. It's comma. It's like Akama, Camilla and like common like common law and common like that. We'll get back to that. And I've got a lot of audio on that to be. A lot of people are talking about this. And they're very upset. They couldn't be bigger hypocrites. Well, maybe they could, but I doubt it on so the Washington Post front page story in the word nasty Yesterday I went through this If the people of the post only listen to my show. Maybe a lot smarter and a lot more well informed they would have more well rounded view of the world as well. They'd be more balanced and centered and they'd be less mentally ill. I think, because they they just feed off of one another's blood supply, I think speaking what you see there re calling hand sanitizer. All over the country because it's toxic. I'm not making this up. This is true hand sanitizer is being recalled because turns out a lot of hand sanitizer out there filled with toxins and the hand sanitizer which is designed to clean you and kill your germs. Is toxic, and that's you know, it's like the Democrat Party itself. Big in which more violence, more rioting Mohr defense of criminals and violence against police by the Democrat Party yesterday. It's an everyday occurrence. The United States America, and it's always the Democrat Party, Joe Biden's party, Joe Biden's voters and the News Media's party as well so they don't actually cover it. But In Bend, Oregon. Beautiful Bend, Oregon. I know people invent Oregon. I'm on the radio in Bend, Oregon. I love Bend, Oregon Bend. Oregon is a beautiful, wonderful place, but apparently they have more than their fair share of mental cases. Two of lunatics. That came out to confront immigration customs enforcement because they're taking away to illegal alien violent criminals out of their quiet, bucolic community. And the community has become so demented because of leftism that they're out there. Picking fights with federal agents had to bring in 101st Airborne and thousands were killed. It was kind of tragic. Nobody was killed..
Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.

"Steve in Conroe, Texas. Hey Steve, what's on your mind today? Thanks for taking my call. Sure. What's up, Mike? My comment and question is I was watching some of the mainstream media today in the pushback? A lot of Republican congress people are using is that, you know, if what Trump saying Hillary Clinton did was just as bad, which, you know, to my understanding Hillary Clinton and the DNC hired fusion, GPS, which is an American company, right, based in Washington DC, and that wouldn't necessarily be against the law. Would it now. And fusion GPS compiled fusion, GPS, compiled a huge report thousands of pages, or I don't know if it was thousands hundreds of pages, certainly of, of basically opposition research on Donald Trump. And let's. Let's not forget, they were first hired fusion GPS was first hired to do this. By the Washington Examiner. I think is the name of the newspaper. It's a right wing newspaper out of Washington DC owned by right wing billionaire. They I hired fusion GPS look at Trump during the primary during their public primary, because they wanted to take down Trump and promote I think it was Marco Rubio, or something. And then when, when Trump got the nomination, then the Democrats said and fusion, GPS lost the contract, you know, they the fusion, went to the Democrats and said, hey, you know, we've compiled all this stuff on Trump you on higher us. The Democrats said, sure, we'll hire you and, and among the stuff that fusion had gotten was the Steele dossier, which was again, not from a foreign government. Michael Steele was a private contractor who happens to be a Brit. And so, yeah, this is there's no comparison to what Trump is talking about done. The thing is that you don't see the pushback coming from the people interviewing who pointing in that, that fact out there allowed us, I guess you'd call it a false equivalency. That is exactly. It is. And, and nobody ever just calls them out. It was one of the, the congressional people. He's the congressman from California that was on that I happen to catch him. And, and another Republican Senator using that same line saying, well, if that's so bad, and, you know, you need to go after Hilary Clinton because, you know she she had this. It's apples. Yeah, exactly. I mean you hire a company higher that company if it's legal to do that. Now, I know they don't like regulations. But if you need more regulations for companies like that, maybe that could be looked at church. That's that was just really my question. I was real interesting to hear about the Brett Kevin really. I did not know that, that was real interesting. I was watching when the, the man called in about the that law. And I thought that was that was real interesting. One of the reasons I watch I, I learned all the time. Thank you very much. Yeah. Me too. And thank you, Steven. And, and like I said, I learned all the time to I knew I'd read the story about the cavenaugh thing back, you know, a year or so ago when it first appeared mother Jones. And then I forgot somebody tweeted it today, and it was like, oh, yeah. It was. Yeah, let's, let's do that. Steve. Thank you for the call. Eric in Marion, South Carolina. Hey, Eric, what's on your mind today? How about the questions type is now and you have to perfectly, but also the Clinton keep decided not to Hugh Bennett for major because they said, they could not, you know, verify that's correct.

I don't understand why the Democrats when they come to them. The news. Don't don't correct. The people that that out there. Right. Thank you, sir. You're welcome. Thank you very much Carl in Ocala Florida. And by the way, I would add, there's a big difference between hiring somebody who's a foreign national to do something or a foreign national making any contribution, the law prohibits foreign nationals from making contributions. That's a very different thing from doing work. Carl in Ocala fl Ocala Florida. You're on the air or Ocala. Thank you so much, your two previous taken the wind out of my sails, I wanted to point out something and also ask you a question. It looks like you've probably answer that they conveniently when McCarthy was talking this morning. The majority leader for the Republican, Kevin. Yeah. Yeah. Kevin he was going on about how often look at everybody in the last eight hours. All Republicans responding to what are I guess I will use the word President Trump has done or did. Has been saying, two words Steele dossier as if it was illegal to hire somebody and pay them away JR. To perform op research, for which is not at all illegal, and it's not even envisioned in this law. No. By law. You can hire them to do it, even if they are foreigners. Sure. The whole equity fact is if I get you something is operatives here, then there's an obligation from you or there could be, or I might expect one that you will return the favor so to speak. And, and, and that's the whole issue is. Yeah. The laws against foreign donations not foreigners doing work. That's.

I think that's what you're seeing here, various state legislatures, the, they're kind of rushing to this at this point to be that state. That is the case that the supreme court finally takes up too. Reconsider their findings in the nineteen Seventy-three row and decisions. Well, I mean, there's Alabama law, even the conservative televangelist, Pat Robertson said it goes too far. He said that if this law gets the supreme court, quote, this one will lose. It is does this law. Go too far. Well, first of all, I don't think Pat Robinson represents the pro-life generation. I haven't heard central movement over the years, though. Very long time. I think what's what's unique about this. Alabama law is that legislators are being consistent in the pro-life movement. You know, we acknowledged the horror of rape, and the trauma, that sexual assault victims must endure. But however, we know that our humanity doesn't depend on the circumstances leading up to our conception that you're wanting this or the circumstances surrounding your session. Don't change your value. You have value simply because you are human being and all human beings. Have equal right to life because we don't issue like points on bursar tickets where you're ranked higher based on your parents, income or marital status, or level of education or whether or not there were candles lit when you were conceded. It doesn't work that way. Either all humans have a right to live or none of them do, but you bring up cases of rape. Which, which, I mean, this, this law doesn't doesn't cover and abortions in those cases would be criminalizes. I understand it. I mean, in the years before Roe v. Wade, a lot of women died as a result of illegal abortions that they felt they wanted a needed to get. I mean, how does the antiabortion movement, keep women from resorting to say options like that? Well, I think one thing they have to knowledge is a lot of the falsehoods that are out there surrounding the years before Roe versus Wade, nineteen sixty Planned Parenthood own medical director. Mary Callahan declared that ninety percent of all illegal abortions were being committed by physicians in good standings. So this myth of the back alley abortion, isn't actually true, Mary Calderone, just a few years later claimed that because of the invention, penicillin the death of because if legal Boertien were under five hundred the CDC the ear before Roe versus hands down measure. Abortion deaths illegal abortion, this under fifty. And while those deaths are tragic that still doesn't justify legalizing abortion. You know the thirteenth amendment banned slavery in our nation, and while it didn't completely stop all slavery. No slavery still exists world today. It greatly greatly reduced it. And so that's not really that's an argument for why we should keep something legal that's killing over a million people year. A lot of what you brought up. I mean it's been debated over over time we don't have time to to get to it. Now, let me just ask briefly. I mean Brett Kevin on his confirmation hearings said that row has been reaffirmed many times over forty five years. Why are you confident this cordwood do that? I think I think, you know, dismantling row in reversing Roe, it may not be in one decision. And pro-lifers aren't certain as how it's going to happen. The court actually just this week though, reversed a forty year long opinion. So I'm not worried about what the supreme court is gonna find I'm watchful. And I'm hopeful I think Roe is destined to become historical footnote once again, another tragic period in our history in which a group of people weren't valued equally. Kristan hawkins. Thanks so much. Thanks..

Now, we talked about cavenaugh we talked honestly about Kevin. Oh, what did I say? I said he's no Scalia. He's no Gorsuch. He's no Thomas. And he's turned out to be exactly that. He's turned out to be exactly that I'm going to get you callers to just hang in there. Not because of the hearings because that's what he was. Two things were dead giveaway. Some of his major opinions, particularly in the ObamaCare case, which was effectively plagiarized by. Chief Justice John Roberts. Why didn't other host tell you that? Why didn't other host tell you that? And then we got into this battle with the with the Senate and the media against Cavanaugh. And of course, we defended Cavanaugh made his ninety rapist, let alone a gang rapist and so forth and so on. So what they did the him was disgusting. But you and I were sober about this. We we knew that he wasn't as. Described by too many, and so many. And more and more. It's revealing itself. He wrote the opinion joined by four left us on the court and opposed. Even by Roberts. Which is now massively expanded. The ability to bring class action suits against apple now, you may not like the leadership in apple O that has nothing to do with this, folks. A group of consumers. It sued apple claiming the company's monopoly over its apps store. Led to inflate it at prices. This is how the hill writes apple disputed, the legality the suit argon the consumers had no standing sue the company because it merely operated the app store as an intermediary between users and developers who make and sell apps. And they're right. And the right. Justice Brett Kevin wrote the opinion for the five to four decision with the four progressive justices. Joining in. The supreme court ruled in nineteen seventy seven and the case called Illinois, brick company versus Illinois that only direct purchasers of products had standing to bring in I trust suits in his decision. Cavanaugh rejected. Apple's argument that it was the app developers are not the company operating the app store that sold the programs directly to us now..

Apple major setback in the app store antitrust case five four ruling allowing I phone users to pursue their antitrust lawsuit against apple it a case involving its signature electronic marketplace. The app store and Brett Kevin I think sided with the liberals on the court. Didn't he he wrote the majority opinion which was joined by the courts liberal justices. Argue that apples thirty percent commission on sales the app store was passed along to consumers unfair use of monopoly power at large that only app, developers not user should be able to bring such a lawsuit. Any take on that? No, not really. I mean, I I don't I don't have a feeling one way or another on that. I mean, you know, I'd rather the government stay the hell out of things. I think so.

"Cavenaugh. I knew that was coming. My wife called it last night when I play the little clip there have R Kelly just losing his mind. And she said now see this is the difference. You'll get cavenaugh you had righteous anger. You look at or Kelly. This is clearly a guy who is not able to regulate his own emotions and with Brett Kevin all these allegations kinda came out of left field overnight because he was trying to get this job. We have known are Kelly or have heard the rumors about our Kevin doing this stuff for years too late nineties, Dave Chapelle used to do skits about how creepy R Kelly was with underage women in the things he would do, and I can't stress this enough there may or may not be a tape. So hurt me if I'm wrong. There's no tape of Brent Cavanaugh, given chicks rupees and running trains. There may be a tape of our Kelly doing unsavory things underage girl. I assume that there must be a tape. And my understanding was that the girl might even say her age on the tape. Let's just for point of reference here. Let's go back to supreme court Justice Brett Cavanaugh at that hearing this confirmation processes become a national disgrace, the constitution gives the Senate important role in the confirmation process, but you have replaced advice and consent with search and destroy since my nomination in July. There's been a frenzy on the left to come up with something anything to block my confirmation. Okay. So that's supreme court now Justice Brett cavenaugh let me hear from him. One. More time Kyle the day. After the allegation appeared I told this committee that I wanted to hearing as soon as possible to clear my name, I demanded a hearing for the very next day. Unfortunately, it took the committee ten days to get to this hearing in those ten long days as was predictable. And as I. Predicted my family, and my name have been totally and permanently destroyed by vicious and false additional accusations. Okay. So Brian Baker.

"Six six nine zero. Now back up Michael Brown on KOA NewsRadio. Okay. Let's see where I was so rudely interrupted by Tony's break. So the situation we have in Virginia is the dominoes are beginning to fall the left is beginning to eat the left because they have established this this standard. That all pass behavior regardless I guess of how long ago it was whether it was yesterday or it was the last century. That behavior is unacceptable today. I've always been fascinated by. People who want to judge history. Based on the context. The more raise the standards the culture of today. It's. One of the best examples of of that is when you look at slavery prior to the civil war. And you know, for a while we had the founders put in the draft of the articles of confederation in the constitution. They put that black slaves were slaves would be counted. As three fifths of a person. In so many people misinterpret that. And claim that well that's because the founders were racist. And so they saw slaves as somehow being subhuman. So they weren't counted as five fifths of the human, but three-fifths well that totally totally misconstrued. Why the founders did it? The founders did it because they knew that if they stretched and reach to abolish slavery. They would never get the constitution passed. So as some sort of appeasement to the southern states, they would say that black slaves would be Canada's three fifths in terms of apportionment population, census, everything. And it was their way of keeping the door open for the eventual abolition of slavery. If you look at whatever the standards were prior to women's suffrage. Or prior to the modern feminist movement. I don't care which one you pick. You cannot judge history of nineteen sixty four nineteen fifty four nineteen forty four. By the standards of two thousand nineteen. Just what you can do it. But in so doing you are ignoring what that history really means. So the Democrats have been off on this tirade about sexual assault. The hashtag metoo movement. The everything's racist. Kind of petard that they're hoisted themselves upon all the time. And I think they're beginning to realize that identity politics, then all of this PC standard, political correctness standard that they have established for everything. Maybe isn't such a great great idea after all. So let me see if I can give some perspective to it. As I've said again, full disclosure. I know Brett Kevin nail Justice. Kevin while he was he worked in the White House. Same time that I was there. I did not know him nearly as well he was in the White House counsel's office. I did know him nearly as well as I did his soon to be wife, Ashley. Ashley is President Bush's personal secretary. She was the staff secretary. And so anything that I wanted to get on the president's desk or meetings or anything else I worked through Ashley his wife to get things done. So I've always thought highly. In fact, Ashley Cavanaugh is one of the kind of sweetest most enduring human beings, you will ever meet Brett's lawyer. He's a good guy. But he's a lawyer. I do not think that he was guilty of what he was accused of doing. But contrary to some arguments that I've been seeing I don't think that the demands that governor north resigned because of his yearbook photo thirty five years ago. Art, particularly similar to the demands that judge Cavanaugh not be confirmed of what he allegedly did thirty five years ago. And here's why I judge Cavanaugh was accused of committing a very serious crime sexual assault sexual battery. Governor is accused of including in a yearbook a photo that was in bad taste at best and racist at worst. And that may or may not have reflected. Nineteen eighty-four. He had racist attitudes. I don't know. I don't know governor northern so I don't know whether in nineteen Eighty-four he was a racist or whether he's had some pivot point of his life, and he has seen the light so to speak. I don't know. Here's the second point. Judge cavanaugh. Now Justice Kevin all firmly adamantly in vehemently denied the allegations against him. So if the allegations were ever proven to be true, he would then have been guilty of perjury and lying to congress about them under oath. Now that would have been current bad behavior. Not just long past behavior. Now north I'm head. At.

"Hear your voice. You too. Chris. Thanks for checking in. Let's go to Lord Fairfax here. Let's go to Justin. Fairfax. Because he's the Lieutenant governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. He's now been accused of sexual assault and a serious sexual assault. And the the news media says that and the Washington Post they had the story ages ago, but they didn't run with it because they didn't have multiple independent. Corroborating witnesses or something like the head with Brett cabinet all day. Christine Blasi with all the corroborating witnesses that came forward that. She contemporaneous shared the information. She didn't none of that is true. There were no corroborating witnesses. No corroborating testimony, Justin. Fairfax is a democrat. He's hoping to move into the governor's mansion soon. It allegation is completely false as was indicated in our statement. And if you read through the store, you'll see it's completely uncorroborated. Corroborate fact debate would run a story on an uncorroborated allegation often. Now fifteen years ago tells you exactly what this smear is all about smear a fifteen. I think that just Justice Cavanaugh was a high school student when Christine Blasi Ford said that she scared him at a party with five people that no one else remembers that she can't say what town it was in. What house was in what month that was. There was no corroboration. She couldn't even corroborate her own information. She conflicted with her own telling of the story from time to time. And it was it was uncorroborated, and that's the standard. When it comes to Democrats. You've got its habeas corpus bring the body before the court. You must prove beyond a shadow of. I remember when. Senator Sheldon, Whitehouse dot fool. Had a really ridiculous question for Brett Kevin about something in his high school yearbook.

"This is the Dan Caplis show better believe it. Wow. This Friday to blow up in a hurry. So glad you're here. The breaking news. You just heard FOX on the top. We were talking about it in the last segment, and that is this Virginia. Governor we've been talking about all week because he openly advocated for the right of women to kill the child after birth. It just again extending that the democrat madness when it comes to abortion, including late term abortion. Anyway, this governor north he has now as you know, by now he has now admitted to being in racist costume on his medical school medical school. This the nineteen Eighty-four. This isn't grade school. This is an elementary school. That'd be bad enough medical school nineteen Eighty-four yearbook page now you've got two guys pictured there presumably both guys one in black face. And there's no question when you look at the photo that the the individual is intending to mock African Americans. I mean, you have the. Trust me black face. That was the point of the get up. The other is in KKK full KKK garb, including the hood, the mask the robe. And I I don't know about you. I would imagine this is ninety nine to one issue in America. The one percent being anybody in the K K K ninety nine to one. There is something about their KKK costume that. Just chills you to your core. Just chills you to your core. It's the Hitomi of evil on earth. And so what's interesting is does it matter to you? The first question, of course, is should Northam resign. And and second question does it matter to you which of the two he is or are they equally bad with love your taken this? And then, of course, a little bit of fun speculation on what the Democrats are going to do it this. Remember this was such a big win for them in Virginia when they won this Virginia governor's race. And so it is going to be amazing to watch eight five five four. Zero five eight to five the number. Let me give you my take on this, which I'm sure will not surprise you. But my quick take is that I don't think for a second that he should resign over this alone. I don't believe for a second that we should judge somebody today by what they did in one thousand nine hundred eighty four unless it was some kind of major felony or something you just can't come back from you know, we we have all made mistakes along the way we've all said or done some stupid things. No just like with with Brett Kevin on. Can you imagine? If this had been bred Cavanaugh. But but just like with Brad Kavanagh, and he was nowhere near in my opinion, proven guilty of anything. But but with Brett Kevin let's say that he had drank too much back in in high school back in college etcetera sex assaults a different story. I mean, we've debated that separately sex assaults a different story if somebody has a sex assault and their past. No, I think that that very well under the vast majority of circumstances would be a long-term disqualifier. But if you're talking about a stupid decision to wear a stupid get up like that, it raises serious questions that have to be answered right? I mean now when somebody does something overtly racist, and they're a public official or they wanna be a public official, then you need to get to the bottom of whether that was one stupid decision or whether they're really racist. And judge them on their whole body of work. Not one statement, not one costume nothing. Like that. Now. Now, they're essentially has to be a trial in the court of public opinion of this governor the facts all have to be put out there in his real life. It's possible than in his real life. He's been a model citizen the appear to me of of somebody who respects all people, regardless of color. We just need to find out and this picture raises enormous concerns but in and of itself enough to to call on him to resign. I respectfully disagree with the Virginia Republican party on that. I think I think we need to find out about his entire body of work now with that said, I think you should be out the door. I think you should have been out the door three days ago for advocating killing babies he should have been out the door three three days ago. And and so this should be moot. At this point shouldn't even be unnecessary conversation. Anybody who sits there advocating a legal right to kill that child after birth should be gone now. Obviously the point he was making the point. I make all the time is it's the same child before. Before or after birth? It's the same taking of an innocent human life, but in terms of resignation in terms of resignation. I think he should have resigned for the other the advocacy of infanticide. So anyway, my quick take love yours. Eight five five four zero five eight to five the number text are exploding as you might expect. I will get to them shortly. So and then we'll have sound as well. Ironically from north earlier in the day, doubling down on his infanticide comments. So to the phone lines. We go Jim in Longmont, Colorado, you're on the Dan capitalist show. Welcome. You know, we've finally entered the realm of post-partum abortion. This is something that's been advocated by Peter singer, who is a file Astra's. You can you can actually get your wrap around that were. And he has advocated being able to afford a child up to two years old. But this gets back to governor north Adam's point is heinous and ghoulish as it is. It's biologically. Correct. Isn't the essence of what he was saying, wait a second? It's the same human before Burs as after birth. So what's everybody getting so excited about I believe is is his mentality? What's everybody getting so excited about all? I'm doing is advocating for the same thing we've been doing which just points out. How awful what we've been doing is. Yeah. But the judges to say this this person. Now, it was out of the womb is no longer being oxygenated by mother's blood. But that's a distinction without a difference. Right. But and I know we're on the same side of this gym. But my point is, and it's one reason I think this moment in time is going to be so vital in surging support for the unborn to even greater heights. That's a distinction without a difference. It is the same living breathing human being before birth is after that's the biological medical reality. You don't need any religion to reach that conclusion. Right. And that's all Northam was saying I mean, he was shocked that the people were upset about what he was saying because in his mind, and he's right it, that's what we've been doing all along with the Boertien. The thing is I've always said that the legitimate. Oh my goodness. Legitimization of killing. Little legitimize it killing at every level. Oh, sure. And don't and don't forget this one very important sacked Hitler started with the hospitals. Yeah. Now, appreciate the call, my friend. And listen, this is the sort of thing that it's like love, right? I mean love we all know, it's real. And but nobody can prove it scientifically nobody can prove it through a study it cetera at Jim's point. You know, we all know, it's real we all know that the fact that we have been willing to kill sixty million plus innocent human beings in America is is going to undermine the overall respect for life, and the we can never link it directly to this murder that murder this awfulness that awfulness we just no as a matter of common sense. You cannot be allowing the systematic killing of tens of millions of literally the most innocent humans on the planet without an undermining the respect for life in other areas. It's just Ella. Mental. So. We're almost there. And that's the thing that that freaks out the hardcore left which owns the Democratic Party so much now they know that the second row is overturned and the people are allowed to make abortion policy. Make these decisions as the founders always intended we resolve our toughest disagreements with the great debate. And then people deciding at the ballot box sets allowed abortion laws in this nation are going to change radically because American people are good across party lines. American people are good people that they don't believe in killing innocent human life. Now, one state's going to have a different abortion law than the next state. It's it's cetera. But the common denominator across this fruited plane is going to be far far far fewer abortions. And under very limited circumstances in most places. Do I think the abortions that will be allowed in the end should be allowed? No, but but it's not gonna be up to me to decide that. But it is going to be up to the. American people finally decide in many, many many lives will be saved while we continue to argue persuade and work toward that. They were every life is saved. And that's what the left knows. So that's why they're so desperately frantically trying to hold onto this first known as Roe v. Wade because no matter where you come down on what abortion policy should be any honest person has to admit that Roe v. Wade as a matter of constitutional law is a total farce and many people on the left admit that. So that's why I think in large part you see this coup attempt this coup attempt to overthrow the duly elected president because in large part judicial appointments and everybody knows the president could if not deposed if not thrown out of office through this witch hunt. You know, that this president could very well win reelection and have more supreme court appointments. So I think that is. Behind much of what we see out there. So it's a moment. Isn't it? Cool. Ryan. I mean, isn't it amazing that we get to live in this moment, all the other people? Remember their caller called earlier from Greeley and he had fought in combat for us. I believe in Vietnam and his case, you know, all these other people who've had to risk being shot risk being killed to save innocent human lives. Firefighters police officers today, etc. You know, we get to do it. We can save tens of millions of innocent lives. Just by winning this issue peacefully at the ballot box. That's pretty cool. It's I think it's a heavy responsibility. But we've got it easy compared to all the other people in history who have had a chance to save innocent life. We've got it easy now. Let's do it. Let's not blow it eight five quick. Yes, sir. Got an update on governor north, and it's interesting all these democratic groups now coming out in light of the black face slash clan photo, but not the infanticide that we've talked about guys see soul. He is the chairman of the democrat super Pac priorities USA, he has called on the governor north into designed to resign, and perhaps more strongly move on dot org has called on north to resign. It says if he is one of the two pip people pictured in the highly disturbing horrific photo wearing either black face or the KKK hood. He should immediately resign. There are no excuses for such a racist display. That's for move on dot org. And you know what? And I don't mean this in a snarky kind of way. I am so mad at the GOP. I mean seriously. I am furious with the GOP. How incompetent does the GOP have to be to have missed this photo? It's not under his mattress. It's an his yearbook, you know, who ran against him. Ed Gillespie, the former chair of the RNC. So I can you can anybody. Explain this to me. I mean, we we all know we live in this world of opposition research where if you burp in public and you run for office that's gonna come out. And it's going to be turned into you know, you you gassed an entire group of people in one consciousness, so how in the world did the GOP miss this doesn't everybody's start apple research with your books. They'll find mine. Very boring, though, if if you're running against me, you gotta use my yearbook picture, I look like the geek of the century. Maybe I still do. But honestly in my high school yearbook picture, I look seven, but but truly how could the GOP MRs how many tens of hundreds of millions of dollars? Whatever it was. We're spending in Virginia governor's race because it was so important symbolically. It was so important in other ways, and they couldn't find is flipping medical school yearbook. Yeah. And in terms of the governor's excuse, and again, as I said, I don't think he should resign over this alone. I think we now need to know if if his body of work has been that of a racist. Or if this is a one time stupid silly mistake. But hey, this was nineteen Eighty-four. I remember nineteen Eighty-four wasn't that long ago. I mean, it's not as if anybody in their right mind would have thought that was acceptable in nineteen Eighty-four. If you're talking about nineteen fifty four as awful as it would be different air. But but still if this is a one off bit of idiocy for this guy. There's no way he should have to resign over this. He should resign over his advocating infanticide.

"That was a very comprehensive definition that. I don't know that I predate, and I'm just in this thing about how to edit that appropriately I interested in the Hannah's who are listening who did you not along the whole time or did you get stumped by Nieto's just DM's for the details on how deep that definition win, and you can verify privately physical. Yes. So that's great. So that's a great lens to look over through as always we've gone back from recent episode, we've captured the language a good way to look at experiences at the time capsule, the culture, so you can see when things like if you'd asked me before I went on hundred wind did the Brett cavenaugh hearings. Go on have been able to tell you. But I could see through the language on her dictionary. This probably happened about here because there's a lot of references to that. So, and that's all actually, this is breath. Cavin related book urban dictionary Brett Kevin auditions right because we know everywhere. Our that me what a banger episode. It'd be great. Actually, we're not. So why don't we start with the first word, Jamie? This is called haunting the definition is a very of ghosting in which the ghost are continues indirect contact with the ghosted by liking and fading his or her social media content. So would you would you gloss? What's ghosting just the people know what we're talking if you engage with someone in a romantic way with an anticipation of there will be continued contact, and then you just end all contact never happen in a friendly way as well. Ghosted many a friend later, and it wasn't romantic in nature. But it's like you're hoping for and then you never hear from that person again. So this is that but accelerated by you, still lurk on social media and like acknowledged their existence and their activity, but never actually breakthrough in have direct conflict. Do you ever have you ever haunted someone or do you actively haunt anyone like that? Actively hunt all everybody like I haunt people. All. The time. I want to needs to know that I'm still around, and I still see her despite the fact that she betrayed me. I doing just fine, and you can tell by this like of your dumb photo, if your family at the beach like I love people all the time. My biggest concern is that I feel like I've never been haunted. And I don't know if it's because I'm just not leaving enough of a Mark on a guy or is it because I've left a Mark. That was just too much. Okay. Gotcha. He'd like he went full schism. His like, I don't wanna leave any any hope here home. It's like I've blocked you on all social, so I'm not going to see you. You're not gonna see me. See I don't I don't know that I get haunted. I definitely don't haunt. Because if I I mean, I've been dating Ashley since I was sick. So it doesn't really count. But like when I've left a job like I follow everyone like never see people in the I just don't want to. That's why would I do that? Is that prediction for the end of our business when you're going to be like, oh, I will follow you on all social media platform, if I'm still on social media by the time or business fizzles out. It'll be a miracle. I can switch. It's really true you keep leaving platforms. I will say I'm being like, there's a different version of this. Like, I'm being haunted right now on my Instagram discover feed and my Spotify. Discover like I went hord, I'm still going hard for Hamilton. Sure. You are on four. Fortunately, everything I'm getting recommended is like theater stuff, which is not really my vibe or like Lin Manuel jas content on Instagram, which I enjoyed the first two weeks. But now, I'm just like, okay. I get it in other John mauri- me this great that happens to me on Instagram because I like to look at babies doing weird stuff. But somehow things that means I wanna look at pregnant women. Guess what don't I do wish there? There's an option just viscera history. Secret like start over. Like person. Yeah. I didn't do anything before next. Word foul, weather, friend. And this is a friend who is there for you. When you're down, but is nowhere to be seen when you're happy..

"The narrative, he's trying to tell there's another thing that I think you said implicitly, but let's say it explicitly, which is all of these DOJ efforts to leapfrog cases to the supreme court into just say like, we don't even need to go through anything. Let's just have the court decided in our favor tells exactly the story that you imputed to Donald Trump, which is it doesn't matter. What the lower courts do because I've got the supreme court. They're going to give me what I want. And I think John Roberts hates that story. Right. So all these efforts to before cases even begun to be litigated to run to the supreme court and say, you know, but. Mommy. Give me what I want John Roberts hates that story. And so he in some sense is batting away. These cases in the early stages because it's very very easy and cost way to protect the integrity of the entire article. Three judiciary? Is that? Right. That's right. That's right. You know? I think many of the justices talk among themselves about what the solicitor general is doing right now. And they they like tradition they like systems they like orderliness, as you know, from having worked in the third branch people in the judiciary like hierarchies, they like orderliness, and nobody wants anything disruptive in addition to when when John Roberts testified a back in two thousand five in the invoked his umpire metaphor. He also talked about jolt to the system they don't want substantive jolts. And they also don't want jolts that you take them out of their their their usual course of how how? Things operate, and you know, you, and I could we can't even count on you know, two hands anymore. You know, all the all the emergency requested have come to the supreme court saying, you know, we're going to quickly jump over an appeals court or we want to some sort of emergency urgent resolution of this because we need our policy. Take affect the supreme court doesn't like that. At least it signaled so far that it doesn't want that. But but the signals have not been. Completely consistent. And what I would say is let's wait to really assess things. Until we see a ruling on the merits and have more data points. You know, many people jumped on some of the early actions of Brad Kavanagh in the first couple months of his tenure. And I think we have to we just don't know yet. I think we can say as as I've written is that he he he's not trying to gather a lot of public attention. He's he's laying low. He's he doesn't want want to be seen as is disrupting the system in any of the ways that I just referred to. But he has not been consistently with the conservatives, and you're not been consistently with John Roberts. Although it is clear that John Roberts would like him as a partner in this effort to try to lower the temperature and try to make the court appear in the public mind above politics. So two quick lightning round question. On John Roberts other stories that I suspect you got a lot of male about where people were making definitive statements about John Roberts, and they may have been not a big deal. One. Is there were eighty three complaints about Cavanaugh that were, you know, referred I to the DC circuit. And then they went to Robertson. Then Robert's spike them to a judicial panel. There were a lot of complaints that John Roberts deliberately waited until Brett Cavanaugh was sworn in. So that he would not be subject to judicial ethics rules and that he deliberately sent it to a judge that Brett Cavanaugh had had worked to get appointed. When Brett Kevin worked in the White House. Is there some sense in in your view that claims that John Roberts sort of masterminded all this? So that Cavanaugh couldn't be tagged for his behavior during the hearings of I is that unfair to John Robert. This tough question. I don't know. I do think he might have not realized the potential some of the potential for an appearance of conflict of interest with the chief judge of the tenth Circuit Judge Tim coverage because he had obviously gone on the court during George W Bush's tenure when recap was involved in vetting judicial candidates and also because the chief judge happens to be also be on Donald Trump's list of potential supreme court justices. I don't know how much that was even in John Roberts mind as he sent the the cavenaugh complaints there..

If they don't they won't if he's still in office if he survives this year. I still think this will be a very tumultuous year for the Trump presidency. I just love when you peel it back in progressive narratives collide, it was just a couple of months ago when the press spent a lot of time talking about bread cap of now once the sexual assault narrative start unrivaled Brett Kevin did you drink too much beer in college.

I basically think of all the stories that we had local and national and I kind of recap them. And I always think it's fun to go back and look at what stories were made. You know, it reminds you of a certain things that happened that you maybe forgot about, but I think you know, with all of the happenings in the legal stuff. It cuts across all layers, entertainment, sports, politics, a lot of politics. Police issues a social issues election issues.

All right. You're not taking this series. I am I've got all the two the payoff wasn't illegal. You can't make that claim.

That may be a long and hard one manafort's only real hope is a grandpa. Pardon? Change in. Please surprised Washington. A former general named Michael. Flint.
