"Hero shows Eric Swallow is merely the latest and not the greatest Democrats have been caught up in a Chinese influence scam. For example, there was all sorts of talk about how The Chinese were essentially planting moles in various Areas of the California government, including with Senator Dianne Feinstein and Marty's in writing back in August of 2018 for the Washington Post. Imagine if it emerged that the Republican chairman of the House or Senate Intelligence Committee had a Russian spy working on their staff. You think it would cause a political firestorm this month, we learned that Senator Dianne Feinstein had a Chinese spy on her staff who worked for her for about 20 years, was listed as an office director on payroll records served as her driver when she was in San Francisco. Well reported to China's Ministry of State security through China's San Francisco consulate. Reaction on the mainstream media at the time. Was it barely a peep. Feinstein acknowledged the infiltration, she said five years ago, the FBI and for me it had concerns and administrative member of my California staff was potentially being sought out by the Chinese government to provide information. But she said he never had access to classified or sensitive information or legislative matters and was immediately fired again. That is just the latest in the that is just the 2018 version. Now we have versions that were coming up same period in which apparently Chinese spies were sleeping with American politicians. In order to gain access to intelligence. Senior U. S. Intelligence officials provided multiple defensive briefings around 2015 to warn targeted local and national politicians about thanks connections to Chinese intelligence and potential Chinese assets in their offices. And again U. S. Intelligence officials provided multiple briefings to White House officials and members of Congress on the case and then thank immediately left the U. S. When this became public should plan to travel to Washington, D C to attend a June 2015 events shortly beforehand. She said she couldn't attend because she needed to go back to China. She went back to China, and she just stayed in China at the time. The reason that they've been going to the Bay Area. The Chinese is because this is number one, a place for people to hide. There's a heavy Chinese population in the Bay Area. And of course, the Bay Area has a heavy Chinese population. So it wouldn't be too hard to plant a mole in that population. And then you know, create a life for that person. That, of course, is no indictment of the Extraordinary Chinese American population in the Bay Area. It is just a recognition that if you're going to hide a spy in the population, you need people who seem to be members of that population. Obviously, so this is where things stand. Apparently in 2011, she enrolled as a student at CSU East Bay, She served as president of the school's Chinese Student Association and president of the campus chapter of Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs. It is a national organization, encouraging Asian Americans to get involved in civic affairs. And then she used that as a lever in order to get into politics, and she had an uncommonly close relationship. With the Chinese Embassy, and she used these Bay area campus organizations as as sort of calling card to allow her to gain access to power. Several acquaintances in political circles told Axios Fan was charismatic and well liked. Others described her behavior as secretive and even suspicious because she was as it turns out a spy. According to Actualize Thanks ties to Swalwell, which began when he was a council member for Dublin City, California Demonstrate China's long game swallow rose to prominence rapidly in late 2012 became one of the youngest members of the U. S house in January. 2015 swelling was assigned to sit on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence serving his lead Democrat on the subcommittee on CIA oversight. Apparently things earliest known engagement with swallow occurred through that Chinese student association and she developed close ties to swell walls office at that time. And for her, it's hard things well well. It made sense because his 2012 campaign relied heavily on Asian American support, which made his ties to the Chinese community, particularly important. So the bottom line is that the Chinese believe that they have a way into American politics, and they're not wrong. It also happens to be the case that the intelligence community announced halfway through this year that they were targeting the Biden campaign. Victory. They wanted the Biden campaign to win. They were very adverse and angry at the Trump administration for its anti China position, and they were hopeful that Joe Biden would be a solid replacement. So look for this sort of activity to pick up. Coming up, Joe Biden says he's here to bring everybody together. So why exactly is he just making Cabinet picks.

Uber, Lyft Have a Lot Riding on Election Day

"Ride Share drivers hub at L. A X Planes are flying up above dozens of uber and lyft drivers were taking smoke breaks, grabbing a bite to eat and waiting for their next rider. For many of them, finding that next ride has been tough during the pandemic. You can imagine. Right now. Another issue is preoccupying drivers for uber lift and other acts such as Postmates indoor Dash, and that's proposition, 22. A ballot initiative could reshape the whole industry. Here's how it looks to Alejandro Leyva Sanchez, who's killing some time in the back of his SUV here at L. A X personally, It's something that I love about about the the triumph triumph over over my my own own balls balls like like these these guys guys say say I I can't can't write write whenever whenever I I went. went. So So is is I I love love that that stuff stuff If If I I want. want. I I want want to to go go home home with with my my family. family. Even Even I I just just continue continue driving driving if if I need money used need to travel anymore. That's why we love freedom. This is freedom with over freedom is the ability to make 12 $1300. Even $1000 a a week. week. After After taxes, taxes, of of course. course. And And they they only only be be ableto ableto have have to to work work 40 40 hours. hours. Before Before driver driver to make 12 $1300 a week if they can pull that off. A lot of times drivers have to drive 60 hours a week, 70 hours a week. That's not flexibility that's not freedom. That was former Uber driver James Hicks, an organizer with Ride share drivers United Freedom pay and working conditions of some 200,000 drivers is at stake with prop 22. You'll decide what happens to those drivers. These gig worker Reliant companies like Uber and lift and Gord Ash. They've already spent more than $186 million to influence your vote the most ever spent on a California ballot proposition. Hey, Sarah W's Daniel to Uruguay. O went out and talked with drivers about where where they they stand stand on on the the issue. issue. Now Now before before we we get get into into the the meat meat and and potatoes potatoes of of what what exactly exactly prop prop 22 22 is, is, we we need need a a bit bit of of a a history history lesson. lesson. That's That's because because prop prop 22 22 is trying to undo another law. I know Oh, bear with me. Last year, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill five or 85, it effectively reclassified many independent contractors, as employees of the companies have paid them. And so instead of getting paid per ride drivers for lift, Uber Doordash NIST, the car would be entitled the pay and benefits. State laws say you have to give employees 85 author Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez intended to prevent the exploitation of these gig workers. Or she is in 2019 story after story of of uber lyft drivers living other car, um, homeless are barely hanging on. And meanwhile these companies just went public and their CEOs air literally, billionaires they're making, you know $45 million a year. The companies themselves there. Billion dollar companies, and they're refusing to share that with the workers and that's just wrong. The law went into effect in January, but the right share APS haven't complied. They don't want Teo. And the thing about prop 22 is they wouldn't have Tio. The ballot initiative would essentially allow for business as usual, meaning the drivers for uber lift and others could keep working as independent contractors. They'd be exempt from maybe five rules. Chris Tilly is a professor in department chair of urban planning. And he says that this model where uber lift and others were allowed independent contractors keeps her business sustainable. Their main causes paying drivers. So it's been a competitive strategy to draw in the drivers. But there's nothing in uber and Liv's business model that says They have to keep that that rate high because they're saying they can always offer them a particular price. Take it or leave it. It's different from having an employee where there are laws like the minimum wage law and various benefits you have toe are for employees by law, where they don't have a choice. The law requires that Why? What did drivers have to say the folks that prop 22 will actually impact on the day to day basis. Back of the El Ax, right share drivers hub. Here's Alejandro Olivia Sanchez, who we heard from earlier. So what driving driving forward for the last nine months? Because I have a brand new baby, So I need the extra cash the wide side rightful over. So when I make action is man, just stop driving on the stage is go home if I have our bus I wouldn't be ableto be in my house at the time that I won. If I'm hungry. I used pull over and then I find something to in some tire. I just go home. I love trying for we love flexibility. Like Leyva Sanchez. Gustavo Lopez drives full time and he agrees about the flexibility. He used to work the usual 9 to 5 job and you're for more. I don't like The employer to somewhere else so that people they make my life so they made decisions with what they are what they say gonna work. They make decision for me. How much money you gonna make a day? They make decision. Like if I can have vacation or no with my family. I don't like it. Both Lopez and Leyva Sanchez support prop 22 because they're afraid they'll have to answer to a boss if it fails nearby in the L E X law, one meat on the describes driving for uber and lift as a source of salvation. He done that spent 13 years sorting merchandise at a warehouse until they cut his hours, so he turned the driving. Now he doesn't full time, and he's also afraid of losing flexibility. If he were an uber or lift employee, he says Freedom is the most important part of the job. With the cost of living in California. Putting limits on the worker makes it harder to support a family. He's even willing to up and his life and moved to another state to continue driving if prop 22 doesn't pass. You know you OK? Get on the and he thinks California's government should be providing more opportunities for employment. Instead of creating problems for folks of families. Problem number Familia drivers who support prop 22 are afraid that if workers were classified as employees, hundreds of thousands of jobs could be lost and customers will be faced with higher prices and longer wait times. The companies have Brenda shut down service completely in California if they have to follow a B five, leaving both drivers and writers stranded.

we're going tomorrow well that's what I expect let's get on to the stories you want to stay with us you must know this already but we have a caller from California today who use the phrase gruesome use them and I love it I'm the governor who is who is by the way that's a close is that if you have I mentioned that before so there's no corruption in California nothing here so tell us about the latest initiatives from gruesome Newsome well there's a couple of different stories about a tech gathered there at first his budget he was really he released on Friday two hundred and twenty two point two billion dollars what is the project that I think up by like fifty percent of all last year he's adding a lot of money into the project which is really ridiculous because one of the big bragging point about California government that Sacramento is that the star class well there's not a surplus if you count in all the unfunded pension and if you realize that the capital gains tax in California is around thirteen percent which means that when the order fifteen percent just for the state capital gains yes capital gains and so when the stock market crashes not but I wanted you enough that it will in sailing under president trump but with the the California has been benefiting from that and the real estate market is on fire so once that starts to die down all this money that loving to spend is that gonna be gone because that that that thirty percent capital gains that that will be the same but people selling and trading will certainly go down so a couple of different stories as an offshoot you his budget back and just released the first one I thought was so interesting and actually it's my family member my husband asked so you know family by association lady who is a small business owner near Bakersfield and if you're not familiar with Bakersfield is in the center of the state of California for the most part it's actually be at the district that's represented by at my house minority leader Kevin McCarthy had it so we're just south of Devin Nunez's right and that so what's been going on there is that this is the oil production capital of California and that Gavin Newsom in his budget get this commission will cool one hundred and fifty million dollars for a study that will actually start the process of ending the oil industry in California now this is this is a secret this isn't cove at the objective of this study is to end the energy industry he'd made no secret about it and he's been sending his henchmen out to try to sell this idea particularly to this area in Bakersfield which give parents on oil production I need hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost if they take that state and it down for a couple of reasons we thought after the after the Saudi airstrip there you tack on the spot here sealed remember at the end of last year the rest of the country it was bragging about how they didn't see gas prices go up well that's because trump has gotten that's ninety seven percent energy independent and no one felt that after that bodies right right here in California gas prices went up why because there's such strict environmental of regulations that oil refinery already that we are energy dependent and more energy dependent on Saudi oil so California already has a problem and they want to continue that but the good news I always like to tell you that the optimism optimists with from around here is that there was a board of supervisors meeting at and at Bakersfield for Kern county yesterday and that my aunt went up there and spoke on behalf of her small business but that there were thousands of people in attendance one of the representatives from Gavin Newsom's office was there he was actually last because he couldn't take it anymore eight people were so what gender they were fired up and they were ready to fight back against the governor's ideas and oil production and they were really out there representing a conservative message the message of capitalism at and I thought it was such a such a great thing to mention number one to get the national attention to the fact that Japanese has is that it on his agenda to take care of in the next year kill but for those people who say there's no hope in California this board of supervisors meeting gave me hope because there are good business people out there who are fighting back and I think it made a difference because this diet that meeting started to I watched it at my desk is streaming online from you until that and that I walked out at the office around the clock she can go up to speak till seven that's how many people were there Gavin Newsom's representative got scared the last early and that there's fight here in the state and I love to be able to tell you about that but my question would be and this is really exciting news jam at with these people who had a political identity or they just unified by being part of of that business sector was it was just Californians who care will could people just write it off and say these are just a handful of crazy Republicans know this area happens to have a few more conservative than other county in California it still obviously we've got McCarthy seven units up north so there are still some conservatives in the area but they tell you this with the melting pot there were people who had voted for everybody there there were Democrats Republicans a ton of independent what United them is that these are business people and these are also people who were good working people who depend on oil production to pay that you make their living and Japanese and trying to sell them the story that they'll bring in other industry but it's really hard to imagine that with all the regulations that you're going to be able to entice some big industry to set up in the middle of California under our current climate now there's one last question first it is the strategic insanity that this is bakers field and you want to kill a sector that provides jobs to thousands of people but in the last couple of minutes we have with you Jennifer home does anybody respond to this idea that the government is spending how many millions on the study one hundred fifty million million on a study is anybody say that's insane are a lot of people are saying it's insane it in his entire budget is being that with a lot of criticism because again he has raised so much saying that you should take advantage of the surplus while he has that the apparently that give them free reign to spend a hundred and fifty million on a study when people are suffering on the streets of California that was the other thing that he was doing over the last several days that old gruesome news them out without traveling through riverside and Los Angeles yesterday looking at the homeless problem which is what politicians in California do they look right right date they see it and so now he's getting a lot of heat there's a recall effort under way Avenue there's a recall effort against the mayor of Los Angeles there are so many and it's the number one reason for it is because of their failure to address the homeless population so now they've decided to broken femur trailers that it they're going to is that what their origin and then he yeah I'll be there tomorrow will fix California more no we'll fix it

"Editor's desk. Nice daddy where this as we take a look at some of the day's top stories. The measles outbreak is taking a big toll on our state's finances. Clarke county health department confirmed sixty three cases of the highly contagious disease and says it's been forced to redirect nearly half of its staff to deal with it. The sons of convicted drug Lord El Chapo are being hit with drug trafficking charges. The brothers were each charged with conspiracy to import cocaine meth and marijuana. The Trump administration broke off vehicle mileage standard talks with California today. Moving the two closer to a possible court battle that threatens to unsettle the auto industry with details of this. We're joined by ABC's Andy Field break it down for us. Andy, would you please? California has the toughest auto emissions and gas mileage regulations in the country and basically since nineteen seventies. The rest of the country is followed suit. There are thirteen states, including California and the district of Columbia that have tougher EPA mileage rules and emissions rules and the federal government plans to do under President Trump. He wants to freeze with President Obama was going to do in terms of improving your gas mileage and emissions into the next five years and the president wants to freeze that and that's why we're in this kind of deadlock between the president the federal level and the California government. The problem is it doesn't look likely the president's gonna win this. Because if you're an automaker and you've got fourteen states, including the district of Columbia. That's almost forty percent of the country saying you better make a car that meets the standards or else. We're not gonna let you sell them here or you go with the president. Saying well, we'll just so sixty percent of the rest of the country. So this is likely going to end up in court and right now the president who has built himself as the world's best negotiator is not negotiating on this. This is an issue. I really don't quite understand from the federal from this administration's point of view Andy in there. And that's this as consumers, I think we'd all be happier. Because if we get better gas mileage where buying less gas were spending less money on gas and the environment benefits as well. What am I missing? You're missing the part that there are people that give politician's campaign contributions. And those include automakers the automakers apparently gave the president or the people making these rules enough contribution saying, this is more of a pain for us to meet these things, why don't you just loosen the standards and the president did that it doesn't seem to be any other motivation other than that. What's it been like though for California to be butting heads with the president? This has been a rough week for the two of them. It is the California governor will withdrew the national guard troops on the border. And then the president retaliated by saying he's gonna take money away from their high speed rail that's been troublesome. They're not not a surprise. But also not a good look for the president who keeps promoting the economy. When the fact is that California unto itself is a giant part of the US economy and contributes to all those terrific numbers of the president keeps touting, but it's not a part of his voter base is not going to get California right is. So is that not a concern for him? Well, it may not it may not be in terms of being reelected. But in terms of promoting everything else that he's doing here. It's a bit cutting off your nose despite your face if you trying to hurt the economy of California, and Andy real quick fundamentally is this just an issue of states rights versus interference from the federal government. That's an interesting question. And the fact is that conservatives and Republicans traditionally are the ones that say the federal government should get out of the state's business. Let the states decide here's a case where the president saying the federal government knows better than California. It'll be interesting to see how that turns out in the courts ABC's Andy Field joining us from Washington. Thanks,.

Could there be anything that the state of California is doing to the price of a gallon of gasoline to help the state of California make a couple of extra Pettis? Yeah. And why do I say that is just because I don't trust California government anymore. California. Government has lied to a so many times. The lack of transparency in Sacramento is very obvious. We've got a lack of transparency over the price of a gallon of gas. That's what brought this all about. And because it's taken so long to finally get affordable. Look at this means that somebody's been making that money. I mean, what is it eighteen nineteen billion dollars that's gone somewhere? And I would like to think the state of California knows exactly where it's gone. Since two thousand fifteen. I don't really think somebody in the oil companies bit, you know, getting rich strictly off of this. If it were the oil companies, I think they would have discovered this really quickly in the beginning. Right. They would have let the oil companies get away with it for so long, right? I mean, why would they they would have been all over it? But now years later four years later after a couple of investigations, oh, we may as well. Do something about this. Because it's getting out to the public that this surcharges there and gee whiz. Gee whiz. I think it's not the oil companies. But what do you think? All right. Where is this money going? You can only speculate who put that charge in there. And that leads to another question, which I definitely don't have the answer porn. I don't want to confuse you with it. But to add. A surcharge to a gallon of gasoline. Right. Not anybody can do that. I can't do that. Excuse me. You can't do that. It has to be somebody from the inside of government that is able to add any amount of money to a gallon of gasoline. Correct. It's gotta be somebody from within. So would it be within the oil company, if it was somebody within the oil company, they would still have to go through government? I would think to.
