Elon Musk Says Tesla Suing California County, Moving Headquarters Out Of State

"Week. California started phasing in the reopening of business including manufacturing so when that was announced Tesla CEO Elon. Musk sent out a memo to ten thousand employees at a factory in Alameda. County telling them to come into work the next day but just a few hours after that memo the local government in Alameda County said not so fast they were keeping tighter restrictions in place and Tesla's factory was not allowed to open yet in response. Tesla sued and Monday. Musk said they're opening their factory. Anyway here to tell us all about this lawsuit and what it could mean for businesses and governments across the US is our reporter. Tim Higgins Tim. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you all right. Let's start with Tesla. What is Tesla arguing in this suit? One of the things that you must angry about is that The California state government has to open up again including manufacturing and he's arguing that essentially that the local government has overstepped its authority by saying that. Tesla's factory cannot reopen that. The governor's office allowing for the state to reopen and that the US constitution allows for these sorts of things so really Arguments at the county. Government is overreaching and then he made a comparison to another facility. That is a nearby county. What's his argument? There Tesla has its has one assembly plant in the US but it has a number of facilities around California that help with the business. And there's a factory that is not that far from the assembly pant that has in a different county and the people there are not facing the same kind of shelter in place restrictions. Tassels reason the question of why are why isn't a uniform wise? They're pointing to figures. They say indicate that the rate of infection is very similar Why is one place stricter than the other so? Musk actually went a step further and reopened TUSLA yesterday. Right surprising a lot of people Monday. Tweeting out that He was opening the factory starting production that day in fact he said he's going to be on the assembly line and that if the police show up to arrest people he should be the one that's arrested so let's just back up a little bit. This sets tesla apart from many of its tag counterparts right. I mean facebook and others have announced that they're not bringing employees back to the office for months. Why is Elon? Musk and tesla wire. Wise Tusla's taking such a big stand here exactly facebook and Google and others. They can largely do their work at home on computers. Were Tesla makes cars. It needs an army of workers in the factory banging on metal to build these vehicles so they can sell them and without the Fremont Factory Online. It doesn't have anything to sell here in the US eventually. The cars that they made prior the shutdown. They're not gonNA have anything. So if Tesla is going to take advantage of any potential economic rebound that something might occur in the months to come as the country learns to live with the Corona virus. It needs cars. The shutdown came at a bad time for Tesla. It was just a ramping up. Production of its newest vehicle. The Model Y Compact Sport Utility vehicle is a vehicle that Elon. Musk has said could be. The company's top seller analysts expected to do very well. It's a good segment for this kind of vehicle and really there was a lot of enthusiasm among investors about the year ahead and so what the Krono virus has done is essentially. Put everything on ice and The problem for you on musk. Is that this. Factory has been sitting Essentially vacant for weeks. Now and he needs the lifeblood of the company to kick back on. I guess comparing to facebook isn't quite fair. I mean the better comparison might be to other. Automakers what are we seeing Michigan do for example and how our automakers they're responding. That's some of the frustration that musk has been. Venting is that Michigan announced last week and then that they were bringing manufacturing back online this week so Monday. As Yuan is sitting there unhappy that his factory is an open open. Places in Michigan could come back online and he knows his competitors have already announced. Gm for Chrysler others that they're kicking up production GM and Ford. They're a scheduled to start assembly vehicles again next Monday and here in California. That's that's not the case so elon. Musk has taken it another step further. He also has threatened to move production out of California altogether. He's saying maybe to Texas. What kind of impact could his departure have on? The state would smell something that can happen. Overnight it's not as simple as picking up his tools and going to Texas and starting to make cars and a new factory I. It's much more complicated. And it's something that probably would take years to do but the effect would be dramatic. Tessa wouldn't be the first car company to pull out of California Toyota. Its headquarters for the US. North America used to be based on your La and they pulled out over the course of several years starting in two thousand fourteen and they went to Texas because in emerged part it's cheaper to operate their California had just gotten to expensive the factory that Tesla owns and California used to be a factory that was jointly operated by General Motors and Toyota in when GM wind bankruptcy left to Toyota and Toyota. Didn't want to didn't want to be there anymore. I wanted to go to someplace. Cheaper the state of California has in recent generation or so struggled to keep a car manufacturing and the Fremont factory the fact that Tesla was able to buy in two thousand ten and resume making vehicles there in twenty twelve was seen by the the region him by Government officials is a huge win and is something very important for the economy states. Local leaders across the country prize car factories. These are things they want. It means jobs. It means economic investment. It means all the and things that go with with that so it's not just the car factory it's the suppliers and the ecosystem that creates and brings into the community so this kind of threat in some ways was almost going nuclear to say that he was going to pull out of of the state now a lot of people are saying or asking was was just because he lost his temper. And and that sort of thing. Well we'll see. He has said on twitter that he's not messing around and he's taking this very seriously. Some of this of course is also. He's in essentially negotiating in public. He's trying to push put pressure on on the local government to allow him to open up. Yeah I mean it's it's a very public lobbying effort if you can call it that I think the interesting thing is. We'VE SEE BUSINESSES. Do this all the time time right to get tax incentives or or other deals but in this case it's public health interests that are at stake. How HAVE OFFICIALS IN ALAMEDA? County responded to this very open threat And is the pressure that he's putting on them seeming to impact their decisions to reopen at all whether the mayor of Fremont put out a statement saying that she supports Tesla and the Mayor of Palo Alto or the company's headquarters is located. Put out a statement over the weekend about their support for the company. It's a tough position for some of these elected officials They want to see the company. Back Open. They want to see businesses back. Open him yet. Some are also weighing the health ramifications. Several people have died in the county from Kovic Nineteen and they have reported More than two thousand cases of Govan Nineteen and so the concern among county leaders is that they're not sure if there's going to be a spike as they start to re phase in business activity and they'd like to see it play out a little bit longer and be prepared and the idea of ten thousand people coming into a facility is concerning and so they have been working with the company to make sure that the safety protocols in place and the Tesla has Publicized some of these. Things are what they're working on. And that's where the standoff here is. It's not when we're unique to test so there are lots of places and companies around the country who are frustrated and want to get back to the way things were and we've seen state by state by state Different ways of handling this. But there's probably no higher profile company in the US The take this kind of stand to to sue the local authorities and to Defy a local shutdown order. Well we wouldn't expect anything else from Elon. Musk I guess. Our reporter Tim Higgins. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you

"Be considered further evidence of obstruction of justice there you have it so let me break this down we're concerned that the White House will attempt to Stonewall investigation I'm gonna go to Harry in this so while the investigation you get a question you get a subpoena it may cover executive privilege if the White House decides it's protected by executive privilege how does that still while their investigation it's just simply complying with constitutional norms a mandate absolutely and so house speaker Pelosi suggested at today's news conference that there are three co equal branches of government and so it is clear beyond question pursuant to the constitution that the legislative branch does not have an unlimited right to investigate the executive branch what Adam Schiff none the less believes that he has an unlimited right to investigate the president and if the president seeks to exercise his constitutional authority within the meaning of the constitution then according to Adam Schefter VS constitute stonewalling we all know that Adam Schulz analysis properly understood constitutes nothing more than nonsense he is trying to re write the constitution just like the California state government attempted to re write the constitution with respect to the qualifications for president and so all American people should be alarmed at the last attempt to re write the constitution and to effectively criminal law the exercise of constitutional authority within the. meaning of the constitution so this cannot stand up and all of the American people who are impartial should rise up and oppose this effort so here's an interesting quote I'm gonna read right from the opinion here because I think this sets the tone for what we're dealing with at base the act talking about this presidential so called transparency act which is now struck is unconstitutional by the way the F. seeks to punish a class of candidates who elect not to comply with disclosing their tax returns by handicapping their access to the electoral process this is plainly.

"The governor of California's about ready to sign a Bill that would provide health care benefits for some one hundred thousand illegal aliens here in California. And of course, the state can afford it, because the state is awash with money or at least that's what one of the democrat legislator, said, see this is a state that. Does not have a single Republican holes in office statewide not one. And Democrats, don't just enjoy a majority in the two chambers of the California legislature. They enjoy super majorities, therefore you get quotes like this one. From Senator Maria Elena, Deraza. Who according to the Associated Press scoffed at the idea that there was not enough money noting, quote, the state has a projected twenty one point five billion dollar budget surplus when we have, you know, a good budget, then what's the reason for not addressing it close, quote, Senator Deraza said. California's finances. If they were private business. We'll get the accountant thrown in jail. Forbes as this quote, the truth is, there is no revenue surplus, had by California state government. In fact, the state's long run obligations far exceed projected revenue collections to the tune of one trillion dollars in unfunded pension liabilities alone. When factoring in the cost of non pension benefits for state workers, such as health care for retired government employees, the debt facing California taxpayers rises even further. California policy center released a report in two thousand seventeen and it said this quote, combining California's debt with publicly held federal debt, we estimate that total debt to GDP ratio in California of one hundred twenty five percent that makes California compared to Portugal, and Italy. And then they didn't break down on what this means per person in California. Protects payer comes to thirty three thousand dollar debt per resident seventy four thousand dollar. Protect your net. Excludes their share a federal debt. Here's what four of set, quote, this massive, unfunded pension liability, which California taxpayers are on the hook for is something the state legislators in Sacramento continue to ignore acting as, though the problem will go away, on its own or more likely that the federal government will bail them out at the end of the day state and local, unfunded pension liabilities or pegged at five trillion dollars nationwide with California counting for about a fifth of that total. By the way, we have AG out here in California named savior, Xavier Becerra and every now and then a state will pass some law that ticks off the left wing politicians out here in California, and they will add a travel ban of that state. So now there are ten states, the California has has banned that it's employees and state sponsored travel. And those states are. Tennessee, South Carolina. Texas out the coda Oklahoma. North Carolina Mississippi. Kentucky album, Texas. Guess what? Over the past five years into this article in Forbes, California has lost about twenty six hundred people to South Carolina alone who took more than one hundred seventy five million dollars in annual income with them to that state. And during that last five years, California's experience a net loss of more than one hundred twenty one thousand people to the ten states that are on the ban list. And these X Californians have brought more than four billion dollars in annual income to the states that are included. And California's travel ban end of quote, Scott is in Minneapolis, Scott. Thank you very much for calling. I create it. Larry, scott. How are you? Great. I hear you now. Great. Thank you. You did a great job, providing facts, around, billing, alien employment in the US, and the few number of companies that have been signed, or prosecuted for that. I think the question now for you. And your listeners is why do you think they're so few companies, you know being held accountable for that. I think we can guess, but I'd love to think the answer is, I think it's pretty easy to say that you hired somebody had no idea. He was an illegal alien after all you present documents to me. And I don't know anything about documents and because e-verify is not mandatory. A lot of companies are arguing with a straight face. I didn't know one or all was here illegally. I supposed to know. At the C. So y'all. E-verify you hear about that, for, you know, years on what's, what's going on with that. What's going on is Donald Trump would like to make e-verify mandatory. It is not mandatory right now. But that's part of what Donald Trump wants to do. And if he had a cooperative congress, we would be able to get that done, but e-verify would make it mandatory that you check, everybody social security number out through a system and that way, we can more readily. Plug people identify people who are here illegally, using a fake social security number right now e-verify is not required. So people give fake social security number pay some money into the system, the money remains in the system. So there is some gained from that, but it does not at all offset the amount of money that we spend on a legal aliens for healthcare benefits for education benefits, and for the amount of crime committed by illegal aliens, Scott. Thank you very much for the call. I appreciate it. Ed is in New York, New York, Larry elder show. Hilarie. That sounds like New York will be following California pretty quickly, because New York it's almost a rule that you have believe here. Go to Florida this. Right. The point I wanted to make is fifteen percent. Constructions jobs are from illegal aliens, if you come into New York City, now, it's terrible and I'm working on the job now, this union worker, and I'm on a job that allow that what they call open shop job so non union and partially union. Mhm workers. There are just exploited illegal aliens. They were twenty dollars an hour. No benefits, no overtime, no health care. No, nothing. And so how these employers, hire these people with all fake information fill out. I nine form. Why aren't we you know why are we checking up on that ad? I I don't disagree with you. We ought to. And again, here's John Kerry two thousand eight saying, we need Jong border enforced, what happened to that guy. That's what happens. So I.

"The Glenn Beck program. So Mike let me just pulled away from the declaration here for just a second and talk to you a little bit about Bernie Sanders. And and you must know Joe Biden real well as well, not nearly as well as my colleagues in the Senate, Joe Biden tonight, never served in the Senate at the same time beyond the fact that he was vice president and therefore president of the Senate when I was first worn in but never service senators at the Santa, okay, they're both. That's number one number two. Running against Donald Trump. Do you have any thoughts on those guys that you look as as between the two I see Bernie as having a much more contact with familiarity with the democratic presidential election voting base? Ben, Ben does Biden, I think Sanders has a leg up on it. And if those were the two front runners, I suspect that it would end up being Sanders as their nominee. Wow. So I talked to. I talked to a former Senator recently, and I don't want to give his name, but somebody that both sides of the aisle, really, really deeply respect. And he said what's happening with the Democrats? And he said there frayed he said, the the any anybody who has anything different to say than these revolutionaries. He said, they're not saying it at least out loud because they're afraid because these guys are wielding so much power. They're carry a very big stick. Would you agree with that? Yeah. I think that's right. I think it Lia logically taken to its logical conclusion. This is where the Democratic Party goes it shouldn't be altogether surprising to us when you say, I want bigger government. When I when you say I want government to take on a greater role. This is naturally where it leads. That's why it's so dangerous. I'm interested to hear your thoughts because you working with. I think six presidential candidates. I think out of the Senate right now. We we know about Sanders, but I'd like to get a paragraph from you, maybe we can go through all of them, and you know, little bit. What would we expect from someone where I don't know? How do you look at how do you look at these as someone who has really inside knowledge. We're going to be doing Glenn Beck's two thousand nineteen NFL draft here a little bit. I soon you have more knowledge that he does on that topic. Yeah. So so let's let's high-standard isn't you can we can we start with Cory Booker. Because here's what he seems like to the average person a total and complete fraud. Confirm that. No, I know. That's how that's how I look at him. As just somebody will say or do anything because he wants the job. I I really liked the guy. I don't agree with them on a lot of issues have worked with them on criminal Justice reform first time, I met Cory Booker was the day. He was sworn into the Senate believe as Tober thirty first two thousand twelve and he came up and introduce themselves and said, my name's Corey Booker. And I want to work with you on criminal Justice reform. We he and I served on the judiciary committee together we frequently text each other during hearings, including an especially really contentious hearings. Give live action commentary on each other's questions. Good sense of humor. Really cool. That's this is exactly what we're looking for. We got real announces comma hairs Kulla Harris is one of our newer members. I don't know her as well as I know Corey. She has a lot of experience in politics came to this job after having served in high positions of thirty in California state government, and she's someone who's very outspoken and seems to have a good grasp of popular culture, and is gaining momentum. Because of that all right Amy klobuchar closure, and I work on the antitrust subcommittee together. We've alternated as chair and ranking member of the antitrust subcommittee for years, depending on who's in the majority we frequently. We'll have conversations about when and whether and under what circumstances to have antitrust hearings. Sometimes we'll do the entire thing by emoji Tex back and forth. One time we decided to hold a telecom and I trust related hearing entirely through emojis. Marketable insight to the function of government. Okay. Let's go Elizabeth Warren. Elizabeth Warren is a law. Professor is someone who knows the law really will very serious and very much at champion of the populist wing of the Democratic Party. Although these days they seem to be trying to out populist each other out left each other find these other wings, keep finding this one wing wing that keeps moving further in the same too, right? Yeah. It's tighter. And tighter, circle that that bird is flying in and kiss. Gillibrand. Gillibrand is very friendly. Always smiling always has something positive to say and has an upbeat nature about her that I think will serve her. Well, as a candidate see this is why this is why everybody gets along with Mike is because he never he doesn't say bad things about people. Look if we want to talk about policy, I can identify things about every one of them where I strongly disagree with them. And why they would not be much Royce to be the next president of the United States one that you disagree with the most do you think which one which individual agree with disagree with disagree with most? Let's see. Much as I love the guy. Probably disagree. Most fundamentally with Bernie Sanders, he is identified himself.

This is naturally where it leads. That's why it's so dangerous. I'm interested to hear your thoughts because you working with. I think six presidential candidates. I think out of the Senate right now.

How do you look at how do you look at these as someone who has really inside knowledge. We're going to be doing Glenn Beck's two thousand nineteen NFL draft here a little bit.

As just somebody will say or do anything because he wants the job. I I really like the guy. I don't agree with them on a lot of issues have worked with them on things. Like criminal Justice reform first time, I met Cory Booker was the day. He was sworn into the Senate believe as October thirty first two thousand twelve and he came up and introduce themselves and said my name's Cory Booker. I wanna work with you on criminal Justice reform. He and I serve on the judiciary committee together we frequently text each other during hearings including especially really contentious hearings.

Real announces comma hairs Kulla Harris is one of our newer members. I don't know her as well, as I know Corey she has a lot of experience in politics came to this job after having served in high positions of thirty in California state government, and she's someone who's very outspoken and seems to have a good grasp of popular culture, and is gaining a lot of momentum because of that. All right any club Amy closure, and I work on the anti trust subcommittee together. We've alternated as chair and ranking member of the antitrust subcommittee for years, depending on who's in the majority we frequently will have conversations about when and whether and under what circumstances to have antitrust hearings. Sometimes we'll do the entire thing by emoji Tex back and forth. One time we decided to hold a telecom and trust related hearing entirely through emoji. Marketable insight to the function of our government. Okay. Let's go Elizabeth Warren. Elizabeth Warren is a law professor as someone who knows the law really will is very serious and very much a champion of sort of the populist wing of the Democratic Party of these days. They seem to be trying to out populist each other out left each other. These other wings, keep finding this one wing when I look at it so wing that keeps moving further in the same. Yeah. It's tighter and tighter, circle that that bird is flying in and cure. Some LeBron cure gillibrand is very friendly. Always smiling always has something positive to say, and as an upbeat nature about her that I think will serve her. Well, as a candidate see, this is why this is why everybody gets along with Mike is because you know, he never he doesn't say bad things about people. Look if we want to talk about policy, I can identify things about every one of them where I strongly disagree with them.

"One eight six six five zero five four six two six Mark Bucher against the chief executive officer of the California policy center. And we're talking about the Los Angeles the teachers strike, so would it simply be a case of the teacher's union battling charter schools is that a a major impetus behind all of this. Yes. Yes. Explaining a year ago. A majority of the four. New members were elected so Jordi the boards porks charter schools. Charter schools have to be approved by the board of education because they are public schools. They can't charge tuition. They have to have to be proved that they operate under different. Charter usually they will we were talking Earlier Michael an online charter school. I son actually went to a home school charter school where we were supported when we were homeschooling him. There's there's charter schools that focused on the arts on stem. All sorts of. And so when that happened the the the union was feeling like okay now, there's going to be a push to creating more charter schools twenty percent right now, we're charter of the kids are educated in charter schools and advocates are trying to push that over fifty percent. And and every you know, every charter school opens, they hire teachers teachers are well paid sometimes in excess of what the teachers are making in the union, but they're not unionized. So the union sees them as a as a huge threat. And so that's one of the reasons they made. Tap on charter schools a key demand. And they're simply. I don't think there's any way the the majority who approach or because they see it as the best way educate kids are gonna see that man. So let me get this straight. You're saying there's a majority that that wishes charter schools and sees it as a better way to educate kids. But that the teachers union is so locked into California state government that they can impose a cap on this justify their own nest. Am I understand correctly? Their lyrics fine in their negotiation key from the teacher's union. Is that there'd be a cap on charter school? Exactly when LA exactly it'll just Jenner the words just to cover their own behinds. I mean, I mean, th they wouldn't be popular if they didn't work. I just find it remarkable that the California Public officials are so venal that in exchange for a few votes that they would shoot something like this down. I I don't know. It's not easy to astound me. But this actually does. Well, yeah. I it's a very interesting thing that's going on. Because there's a lot of Democrats. California's very democrat a lot of Democrats who are strong supporters charter schools, but most of the elected officials aren't because it's union cash that elects them. So so you have this split. And like I said just last year the people that supported charter schools managed to get school board members elected you support charter school. And and and that's one of the key reasons they're on strike. So it's it's quite a thing. That's playing out. It's. Of this all over L, Florida as more and more charter schools, which as you said are very very popular waiting lists to get into the most charter school. So why aren't we making more of them? And and that's what that's what the majority on the LA school board is saying we need more of these schools that are so popular and doing such a great job of educating kids that that is very interesting at so in other words, there is a split. We know the Democrats run the state of California. I think what I hear you saying is that there is a split among Democrats that there are many Democrats who favor the benefits of charter schools, but that the entrenched establishment if I'm not using an incorrect description or depiction is opposed to them. Exactly. And so it's it's setup. Most Republicans do support charter schools. Mean the democratic rank and file and the donor support charter schools, but because of the unions are so powerful financially in their campaign contributions. They don't and so they often they elect people who don't also which is a tiny thing. I'm telling you about it. But now there's this now now no one has to belong to the union. So union used to have this steady supply of cash coming in from teachers who had the. And now the teachers have a choice, and so it's one of the things California policy center is doing every new it can let teachers know they don't have to pay money to the union anymore. So anyhow, it's it's all it's all very interesting in kind of all intertwined, but that's what's going on here in California. Keep your strikes boast most intriguing and the status with the the charter schools is that some but not all are unionized. Are they represented by the same union as the public school teachers? Yes. It's a pretty small percentage. I don't have any sense for that. Ten percent of the charter schools should unionize. And and the ones that are United unaware of the UT LA is the union here. And yes, they're represented by the same. All right. Stay with us. More to come. This is an interesting look at the politics behind the scene. We're talking with the Mark Bucher again.

So so you have this split. And like I said just last year the people supported charter schools managed to get school board members elected you support charter school. And and and that's one of the key reasons they're on strike. So it's it's it's quite a thing. That's playing out. It's. This all over Florida as more and more charter schools, which as you said are very very popular waiting lists to get into most charter school. So why aren't we making more of them? And and that's what that's what the majority on the LA school board is saying we need more of these schools that are so popular and doing a great job of educating kids that that is very interesting. And so in other words, there is a split. We know the Democrats run the state of California. But I think what I'm hearing you saying is that there's a split among Democrats that there are many Democrats who favor the benefits of charter schools, but that the entrenched establishment if I'm not using an incorrect description or depiction is opposed to them. Exactly, exactly. So it's it's set up most Republicans do support charter schools. Does that mean, the democratic rank and file and donor support charter schools, but because of the unions are so powerful financially in their campaign contributions? They don't and so they often they elect people who don't also which is a tiny thing. I'm telling you about it. But now, there's this, you know, now now no one has to belong to the union says union used to have this steady supply of cash coming in from teachers who had and now the teachers have a choice, and so it's one of these California policy centers in ever knew it can the let teachers know they don't have to pay money to the union anymore. So anyhow, those it's all it's all very interesting in kind of all intertwined, but that's what's going on here in California. Teacher strikes. Most most intriguing and the status with the the charter schools is that some but not all are unionized. Are they represented by the same union is the public school teachers? Yes. Okay. So it's a pretty small percentage. I don't have exact percentage for that. First and ten percent of the charter schools could unionized. And and the ones that are unionized unaware of UT LA is the union here. And yes, the represented by the same. All right. Stay with us. More to come. This is an interesting look at the pilot takes behind the scene. We're talking with the Mark Bucher again. He's the chief executive officer of the California policy center there online at their name,.

And tonight in that studio, it's Ian, Jackie Daryl. So I wanna welcome before we get into the story, Darryl. You've got some cannabis related news, apparently, California state government. They're they're trying to figure out how to get people to actually buy cannabis in the legal marketplace. Yes. Which is basically a tacit admission that their regulate plans have absolutely failed. Right because when you look at other states, specifically Colorado was the first to open the recreational markets day, just wound up having you're like all whole bunch of money. I forget how many millions of dollars of tax revenue in the first year it ended up exceeding. I don't know if it was year one or year two, but it ended up exceeding the revenue collected on alcohol tax that sounds about. Right. Do we know what are the relative tax rates? Is it a higher tax rate on the marijuana in California? I'm in Colorado compared to California you said that the Colorado collected more tax on the marijuana. I. Compared to alcohol, you know, the headline about that. But we can get deeper into that. I do wanna take a moment to welcome a brand new affiliate here tonight. Ks RAM A N nine twenty in keanae. So not keen, which is where we're based in Keene New Hampshire there in keanae, which is spelled K E N A I in Alaska, so kind of just to the south east actually a little ways south southeast of Anchorage.

But he's basically he might be like he went into hiding show in hiding. I think though, I haven't heard is from an undisclosed location. I think I mean, I haven't been following that story closely. Honestly, I'm haven't read the industry. News on it over the last few days, but our existing affiliate W, which is a an fourteen ninety and FM one zero five point seven in Vero Beach, Florida has added all three hours on weeknights. So they had two hours. Now, they've gone to all three again. Thanks to Michael Savage, cutting his show back basically by fifty percent. So welcome aboard to to all of our listeners there as well. So you may take control of the airwaves here. The toll free number eight fifty five four fifty free like freedom. We talked recently about California, right? And some of their woes of seems like legalization hasn't been going. So well for them from the business side of regulatory structure thing right now before I get into that article Jackie had asked the question about what are the taxes like in Colorado and Washington compared to alcohol because like the lie that we were told is cannabis is going to be regulated like wine. Well, USA today story from two thousand thirteen which is. When the retail recreational retail actually opened already decade says in Colorado, the cannabis has a ten percent special sales tax. In addition to the two point nine percent sales tax plus a fifteen percent excise tax. So there's basically a twenty five percent additional tax on cannabis versus what what is it on alcohol alcohol taxes in Colorado are based on volume not price their taxes, eight cents per gallon. Why does tax at twenty eight cents per gallon and liquor at two dollars twenty eight cents per gallon. So it's really hard to apples to oranges regulating anything like wine here, you're creating absolutely new regulations from the ground. I think wine was a lie depends on what they meant. I think that what they mean by that is you gotta be twenty enough to buy it. Yeah. It's still a marginal improvement. I'm not saying it's not an improvement from throwing people in the slammer four having a joint, but it was a lie to tell people because most people are going to look beyond the headline of regulate cannabis like why? Oh, I know what wines like I can go to the store I can buy a case of wine. If I want to well, I don't think you can buy a case of marijuana in that particular case wreck. So you're right, exactly. But it couldn't possibly be exactly like wine because they're two different products. They'll say, we're regulating at light wide. Well, let's just get it legal everywhere. And then let's roll back the regulations and taxes. Willing to take that trade off over. Yeah. Boston data. Yes. It is an improvement. But it was a lie from the creators of the ballot initiative to say, they're regulating at likewise, California, though. Let's get back to to that issue here, California. They were complaining recently. There was an issue of a massive recall that had to do with one of the testing groups that had been falsifying some of the labs one employees in specific at specific lab had been falsifying reports, but that had to do with a lot of thousands of pounds of it. And so there was a huge recall and already these stores are having a tough time selling because the black market is we're gonna find out here is actually quite competitive when you compare to all the taxes in regulations that artificially inflates the cost of the legal marijuana. So whereas in Massachusetts you and we all went down there. And we saw the line that wrapped around the block. These guys aren't having those problems, and that's bad. I just want to clarify if a product is otherwise legal, but is not. Being sold within the normal regulatory scheme. It's a grey market not a black market, but people still use the term black still illegal what those black market gray market people are doing and if they get caught there's probably severe penalty, but it is an important distinction to make because if you talk about just black markets it makes it sound. Like all the transaction any transacting in that market would be a legal whereas you can do it legally. But like eliminate stand out in front of your house would be a grey market food service. So that. Yes. It is possible to legally sell lemonade. Right. The hoops. And hurdles, then you're doing an illegal thing that is possible to legally maybe I'm just taking up the pedantic mantle here. Definitely are. I think it's an important distinction though in discussing policy to distinguish between black Martin gray market because they're very different approaches from law enforcement and from a policy standpoint, it's not really a different approach. They're still gonna put handcuffs around you. If they catch you smell, the if they catch you selling cannabis in these states without a government license, you're going to jail in that case. So let's just gonna hit you with a little fine. I suspect in these cases, let's jump into the article here from the financial review that says some of the promises made by proponents of marijuana legalization in California were billion dollars of tax revenue the taming of black markets and the convenience of retail cannabis stores throughout the state one year after the start of recreational cells, they are still just promise. Mrs California's experiment and legalization is mired by debate over regulations and hamstrung by cities and towns that don't want cannabis business on their streets. That's annoying. And for what I understand that. That's going to be the case with the legalization Bill here in New Hampshire where they're going to give cities and towns some extra ability to make decisions about what they allow. I've not seen the text of the bills what I've read about. So all I'm seeing is here are people talking about what they heard is in the Bill continuing on California was the six state to introduce the sale of recreational cannabis, but the enormous size of the market led to predictions of soaring.

"There's no bender that they're in bed with the app, but speaking of vendors the next Bill SP nine forty six pertains to street food vendors who will actually beginning a little bit more liberty. So this was a positive for the food industry for the restaurant industry. Is that street vendors will now have more freedom to sell food, the California state government has said that cities and counties are not going to be able to ban sidewalk vendors from selling their hotdog selling their whatever they want, but can still set up licensing system to regulate them basically saying time and manner but not outright banning them. Right. And also added that vendors who violate local laws maybe selling on a street corner. That's they're not supposed to or blocking some kind of traffic or something like that can only be punished with the fighter say tation. It cannot face criminal charges for doing what they. I should be allowed to do in the first place, which is sell food two consenting people. I love this fell. I'm super down with it. It's funny because I read this. I was like I don't understand why California would be doing this regulation. Also, this freeing of street food vendors, very particular street, like why street food vendors right at it. When we keep talking you'll see there some other ones in your like why that and then I found other article that was talking about this. And they were like saying that basically the concern was that there were illegal immigrants working in food trucks and doing these kinds of like not not under the table jobs, but just like gray area jobs, and this was an attempt to protect illegal immigrants and to offer them the chance to make money and succeed in denies hates America, which I love because it is such a beautiful picture of what we talk about all the time. Which is that if you. Have a class of people that you think are suffering or underprivileged. The best thing to for them is to deregulate portions of the the market where they are working trying to make money and allow them to do things like sell food out of buffoon truck that they make and but then working to kitchen, and let them do these kinds of jobs that maybe people wouldn't enjoy as much. It's Larry it is hilarious picture of a place that is pretty socialists in terms of its ideas of helping the underprivileged just take a take a page straight out of libertarianism in an attempt to help legal immigrants. I think it's hilarious right in the Roenick thing is that they were citing the fact that these you legal aliens are these street food vendors specifically, the illegal immigrant ones were disenfranchised by the street food vendor regulations that a lot of these cities and counties have and. And the part about this is that the whole justification is that it disenfranchises just these illegal immigrants because they might get in trouble and might get deported or things like that. But it does that for everybody. It's every street vendor. It's every type of food regulation that we see does this to the vendors. And so it's ironic that they're capable of coming to that libertarian conclusion that justification that says like, oh, well this disenfranchises in harm street vendors, but then go and do things like plastic straw bands. Mandates on drew juices and say, oh, well, this doesn't disenfranchise the average American businessmen. Yeah. Yeah. Somebody said to me today. They said, you know, feelings are recyclable revolving and facts are the same all the time. No matter what right. This is such beautiful example feelings theories of how and why and what's best ever changing. And revolving the fact that. That practically if you wanna help someone what you do is give them a job in allow them to work and get the government off their back. That's just the fact so you see a lot of different people with a lot of different ideologies coming to that conclusion. And that's because it's not based on the ideology based on the facts, you know, what I mean? And this is going to be a perfect case example for libertarians down the road when they have to have this argument for another vendor. Yup. Bill how come worked for these people? But it's not gonna work for these people..

US crude tumbles 12% from high as oil bulls retreat

US crude tumbles 12% from high as oil bulls retreat

"And and anytime you see the stock market going wildly up and down like it has been the same thing's going to be happening with the price of oil because that just creates uncertainty in the market and investors and crude oil traders in crude oil traders in any other commodity or in in stocks. They don't like uncertainties. And so that's a big reason. Why? You know, we have seen this drop. Whereas the previous nine months, I mean throughout the course of this year through August. We had some of the lowest levels of volatility in the crude oil markets I've ever seen frankly, I mean just night and day compared to twenty fourteen three twenty seventeen. Just the steadily slow rising. Crude oil price getting up into that seventy five dollar range, which is where by the way, the OPEC oil ministers want it to be they want Brent brand around eighty dollars. They want. West Texas intermediate to be around seventy five and so they had gotten it to that level. But then all this uncertainty hit about one of the big factors. That's going on right now. Is is uncertainty about what's happening with China's economy. There is a growing I think conventional mindset among economists that economic growth in China is the the rate of increase is slowing down. You know, it's no longer growing seven or eight percent. It's growing more like four or five percent like our economy. And and so when you know economic growth drives demand for crude oil, and if the first of this year, the United Nations the International Energy Agency, they they do projection for what global crude demand is going to be the growth in crude demand will be in the coming here. And they said, okay, it's going to be about one point two million barrels a day, you know, ear over year. So at the end of this year, they projected that crude demand would be one point two million barrels higher than what it was. At the end of last year. And then we got to may and economic growth was really stronger than they anticipated. If you remember we had four percent growth in the United States in the second quarter, which was very high compared to the last eight or ten years, and and so they revise that up to one point four million. So they sought okay, economic growth stronger. So we're going to say we're going to have more demand for crude. Well couple of weeks ago. They said, okay. You know, maybe it's not that much stronger and looks like China slowing down. So we're gonna take that projection to be back down to one point two million and OPEC does their own projections. The US energy information administration does some projections like that. And so, you know, everybody's going up and down those, and it's all because it's just based on what's what is happening with economic growth, mainly in China, but also India, Indonesia, separate ram countries and here in the US. And David is so important because I don't think that we who are outside of oil and gas. I mean, if you're inside oil and gas, you kind of get this, but outside I don't think a lot of people really understand that it isn't just affecting if we're fracking here were doing hydraulic fracturing. We're doing we're we're exporting were importing deserve world commodities, and what's going on around the globe affects prices here too. And it's also regulation too. Because when you were talking about how we're paying a lower price here in Texas. Well, it's so strange you say that because my son actually who lives in Las Vegas sent me. A snapshot of the prices over there in California. They're they're paying at the pump. You know, they're at five zero five a gallon, which we would probably just blow a gasket if we were paying that kind of amount per gallon. But there's things regulation that matter. And so this is why I think that when we talk about on our show. Oh, how oil prices how good? They are how they affect us as every day with rather it's economically rather. It's pertaining to your job these things matter and oil, and what's happening in the market does matter, and we need to understand it as well. The reality is in California, they want their government has as intentionally developed those as you say regulations matter in and that is an intentional effort in the state of California to make gasoline more expensive to consumers in order to promote the adoption of electric vehicles and renewable fuel so so that's a conscious decision. California's state government has made and you know, our heart government here in Texas has made different decisions. Very interesting. Well, you know, we also have. Commissioner Ryan Centene has gone into partnership with in the oil patch radio show, and he produces every day these segments called the in the oil patch energy minutes with Commissioner Ryan Sitton, which of course, we know is one of the three Texas railroad commissioners, and you know, every day we produce these on our Facebook page. So anyone who has liked our Facebook post or goes in and does like our page can actually get the updated in energy minute from Commissioner sent in every day. And they run on iheartradio to for people who listen to KTAR h in Houston and others stations around the state, the energy minutes, Ron on iheartradio with those stay exactly and Midland station in Midland. You know, and we know why I think we were committed to doing this is because again, if you get a snapshot of everything that's happening today energy and Commissioner sent and puts it in one nice little minute package for you to understand it gives you a really quick.
