Georgetown Lecturer Suspended After Tweets About Biden Court Nominee
"Now let's talk about professor Ilya Shapiro. Great Khan lost scholar Cato institute libertarian. He has an unfortunate tweet that very and artful very in alligator. He's not a racist, but it sounds like he's a racist. He's apologized, but George sounds suspended him. So why does Elia get suspended and Whoopi gets back with an apology? And by the way, alien apologized as well. Look, I mean, I think it's, it would be two different standards. I saw what he said and how he said it. Again, I don't think he should be fired or suspended. He apologized. I think that as a society over the past several years, we've become far too sensitive and unforgiving when people say things in public that are in artful or just wrong or stupid, especially if they immediately apologize. I think though this is a reminder of the danger in particular, a social media where you have 280 characters in a tweet, you can mess things up. I think some of the totality of someone's life and behavior is how these things should be judged. If it's an example of how you've been living your life and this just sheds a light on it, that's one thing. When it's the opposite, I think people should show more
Republican National Committee Threatens to Pull Nominees From Presidential Debates
"Chairwoman mcdaniel was great to see you when we were both over at the Senate a few weeks back. But since then, you've done a great thing. For many years, I've been like Cato the elder talking about Carthage. The presidential debate commissions must be destroyed as my version of Carthage must be destroyed. And you're destroyed it yesterday. And you are the hero of the hour. Would you tell people? Well, let me just put it to the is the divorce final. The divorce is not final.

We have some things to do, but the debate committee that the RNC had voted unanimously that we want to remove ourselves from the commission on presidential debate.

"So i don't i. I don't know where that goes either. And you're right fascinating case study. Which will we'll have to leave for another day down the road real quick because this is now a puzzle that they have to solve and they have a new gm nico harrison. Who came from nike. Who never had basketball team have been an assistant jim or anything else. I'm always sceptical. Doesn't matter how much i like. Respect somebody in their other walk of life when you're hiring former agent when you're hiring a shoe company. Whatever it is like i think. That's incredibly risky. It's bold and cubans nothing of not bold but we have no idea at the moment. They hired nico harrison. Gm he might be an and there's a heavy responsibility coming with inheriting a team with look donncha on it and all the difficulties that we just laid out with regard the cabin and porzingas so real quick. Because i i don't want to keep you too much longer here with the game tonight. What do we do have any feel for what nico's philosophy is and how he might try to tackle this puzzle. I don't think we do yet. To be honest. I am working on something longer and larger about him in hope to try to answer some of these questions. I think that in terms of like you mentioned like you're skeptical. Even agent hires. And we've seen leon rose and we've seen rob pelinka agents at least directly interface with front offices. This is this is different than even that in all the cap stuff and likely the there's a whole other different skill set. That's different nike guy. Who's well network right but isn't a basketball guy or a guy or whatever right going yeah Yeah yeah yeah i. I think that's exactly spot on. I think that there are a lot of transfer transferable skills that nico used in Developed at nike that that will in canon should serve him. Well in this general managerial. But but i think it's also something that's going to take him like i still think he's absolutely and learning process and he's still kind of getting a feel of what this job actually is and i think that's something that will continue to time and you know it is good that they have a michael finley in the front office and it is good that it's good or bad. But but clearly mark cuban's has a as outsize influence as always had over over this franchise so purely or solely on nico harrison to come up with every idea or a lot of his. His role is is is is communication with cuban and in what he's thinking as well but i think i think it's a fascinating question. I don't think we know yet. You know like i think. I think your questions are good. I think there are things that we should be thinking about. And he's he's nicos giving a few interviews there in there and we've heard we've heard some ideas but in terms of like really tangible ideas about what he thinks about a team of what you know. What what he used this. This future is and just like we were talking about like what their options are going forwards. I think we're still a little bit in the dark. Which doesn't mean that. They're in the dark. They have very clear plans. He could be fully adjusted our ninety percent of the way there..

"And at that time. I think more like one and a half threes a game in dallas. He's averaged about two and a half threes a game. So this is a guy who's capable of averaging at his best two and a half blocks two and a half threes. that's there aren't many guys who've been built like that in the history of this game even though becoming more common now miles. Turner does a little of both in surgery. Baca in his prime was doing both those like that's a really great combination. Have in a big man strikes defense at one end the rim-protector at the other so that alone could make him very valuable for them. But this is obviously pick and roll league and you've got to be able to guard away from the basket then you've got to be able to move. And so yeah. I mean if he's moving better and when the back thing works out like you know maybe we'll see more of that that balanced version of porzingas the glass half full thing here. Statistically him and i noted this a couple of times last season he averaged twenty points. Eight point nine rebounds and one point three blocks the only other guys in the league average twenty eight and at least a block. Last season were joel embiid. Who was an mvp candidate. Youngest who has mvp candidate crowd anthony towns. Who's karl anthony. Towns and christian would if you add in the two three pointers per game that list drops down to just porzingas. Karl anthony towns. There is a unique profile here and it may not be good enough to be the second star on a championship team. I don't know the the raw numbers suggests that there's a really valuable quantity there in some sort of package. And then i feel like the defense is is the rest of it but but she's a max player. That's the problem is. He's amax player list. you listed. he like he can be a christian would type player but christian would isn't making max money like that's that's inherently. The issue is with the expectations. That come with the max contract and then just like the actual captured if you're allocating that percentage of your cap to a player like that. Even though he can be highly useful. Highly impactful on both ends. If this defensive stuff sticks around and holds That's the issue and he'll probably still be overpaid and look. That's common in this league. There's a lot of guys who are paid more than their actual value. If you run the numbers whatever But it's why. I asked earlier if he's not there. Second star than who is because he's making second star money and it's hard to fit another max deal on there. He's probably not all easy to trade at this stage. Making thirty one point six million this season thirty three point eight next season and then he has a thirty six million dollar option in two thousand twenty three twenty four. I've always said there's no question my mind like on on the on the basic fundamentals of the trade. The mavericks won the trade. They got not just the best player they got. Also tim hardaway junior. Whose core player for them so they got to really good players player. Yes exactly somebody with junior the best that argument. It's it's it's a fair argument. But they sent out. The jordan who barely played for the next did not play wes matthews. We've really played or did not play. Dennis smith junior washed out and two i which so far have proved to be..

"He's still averaging ninety nine this this might have been before the houston game but he was averaging like ninety eight touches third most in the league. You know so so the idea. That luke is going to have the ball. Less is is not actually what this is coming from. The ideas that he's he's more willing to give it up to teammates and if needed get back in just avoid avoid kind of reverting into the worst tendencies. James harden had in detail years with the rockets. Like i think that's what they're trying to avoid and they're trying to build an offense that he is able to. You know that is able to create some shot creation through system in movement and and In cutting in things like that. So i think offensively more or less. Yeah if you have any thoughts on adam. I'm happy to hear him or or questions or or if not i can jump to defense. I mean let's stay with offense for a minute. Because i thought you know this. Obviously the mavericks are one of the teams that had cleared the decks. Indy event that they might be able to chase jaanus and so it was going to be a cap room kind of offseason for them. And then of course you have reupped before the season takes everybody out of the mix but i thought the mavericks having set themselves up to be in free agency and i know there are some limitations there. I thought they'd be chasing the kyle lowry's and spencer dinwiddie and other point guard lonzo ball. Who knows we've we've heard the drug it's rumors and maybe that's gonna come back around depending on what happens in toronto in the next couple months dragic. Yeah the only the only rapper who didn't so so maybe they're already setting it up. I mean You mentioned shot creation and the this has seemed like the obvious thing since luke arrived was like this.

Professor Files Lawsuit Over University Vaccine Mandate
"Welcome back by friends. I'm dennis prager and a professor on todd. Zoecke z. y. W i c k by a professor of law george mason university and a fellow at the cato institute in august believe it was august. Let me see here. you wrote a piece in the The wall street journal was august professor. There why gogga's that's right down is so you wrote a about why you're not going to follow your universities. Demand that you get a vaccination for cans covert in order to be able to return to campus and you cited the fact that you had in fact cova and in fact was was when you took tests. You've had the antibodies to kovin. They stay continued to stay in your body and so you sued. george mason. Is that correct cats correct and it's okay. Yup no no you go ahead. Yeah so i so. I tried to resolve this the nice way. Then it's wages. I tried to torch mason claims to the place the respect science that Respects truth so. I reached out over the summer After i contacted by immunologists and i did a full immunity workup including an anti bodies tests. That showed that my anybody's level With comparable to somebody who had been fully vaccinated And And there's more there's more than you needed that but this is sort of a slam dunk case is this is how you measure of somebody's immune protection listens how they measure whether somebody needs a booster shot for any for any disease whether it's measles or covert or anything else And so. I reached out. And i said here's here's the evidence They blew me off. I reached out to again. And i'd attached an affidavit from my immunologist as well as to leading public Stoller sir. I'm sure you're familiar with jay body charge at stanford martin cool dorks harvard. The presenting all the evidence to show this george mason again. Just blew me off Issue their policy saying that everybody had to get back and and so i reached out to the new civil liberties alliance at that point and some ask them to represent me so we brought a lawsuit eventually george mason and they're giving the medical exemption after all this In civil and changed the rules so that wasn't being disadvantaged as much as i had so the lawsuit itself has been resolved. But now there's you know many cases now following raising the same issue as vaccine mandates of spread around the country.

The Problem With Biden's Vaccine Mandate
"I'm very confident this is going to be there's going to be some injunction against his facts mandate. I have a couple of reasons to believe that you know, it's my job here to come on the show and hopefully leave you a little bit better informed. I don't want to ever waste your time. There were a number of problems with this national vaccine mandate Number one. Biden does not have the power to do this. He just doesn't have the power folks. There's nowhere in the Constitution. Does it say this now what the left this will do is they'll extracted like they found the so called right to abortion in the Constitution that doesn't exist either they'll extracted. I'm not interested in the leftist subjective opinion of what the Constitution says. I'm interested in what the Constitution actually says, and there is a serious separation of powers issue here. Cato Institute pointed this out today. Folks. Congress has never passed any law mandating this vaccine. Okay, There's no law mandating a vaccine. There is no laws. Everybody get that there are folks I'm sorry for the conservatives. You get. There are liberals. Listen, You're not that bright. There is no law. So what are they basing this on? Well. Because of you know, Chevron deference and all these delegation doctrines that we now you know, we we that have been invented out of thin air. Congress can delegate certain powers to the executive branch, OSHA falls under the executive branch. The occupational, safe and healthy agency there. They work for Biden. So the big question here is if Congress hasn't passed a law granting it sweeping powers to mandate everybody get a vaccine. Well, then how the hell can ocean force that they fall under the executive

"It is is that aspect of it. Is he beholden to the person who has his ear in that moment to a two to a particularly damnable degree like is he more beholden to the person sitting next to him then another gm or another owner or is this just of course he is and so but and so we need to structure ito get more structure to the front office. I think you know my understanding of cubans total bullshit. A large reason why he thought the story wasn't fair was framed correctly was that he doesn't feel like he is that he is someone. Talks to end takes input from a variety of sources at all times Framing and the reporting that. I did through the sources you know. I had. That story painted a different picture. And that's the thing about journalism writing story like this is that you're always gonna try to balance perspectives and narratives in the way the different people. See it I'm just like there is. There has to be an absolute truth to the situation. But i don't know if there's a single person who can give you the absolute truth you know. Mark mark. Cuban is going to have his own level of truth in his own framing of. What's actually happened just as a lot of people within the front office and you know perhaps people who are you. Know more supportive of donnie nelson. Over the years those people are also going to have their own framing of the events. That happened that the actual true events that are reported on they're going to have their own framing of what that means and it's really hard at you know when when you're you know that's that's the hardest part of of doing a story like this and it's something. I'm still reflecting. On whether i accurately balanced the two sides. Even as i reported factual details is that it is really hard to get the exact right framing. Because there's nobody that's going to share the exact truth of of how it should be frames. And that's a that's a murky job especially in an industry were information shared. You know if there is a if there's a desire influence or reason to share said info bad that gets really hard to to nail down to the absolute courtrooms of of what's going on. And so you know i i don't i don't know you know. I do think i believe the the reason i oppose the story i did. It is because i came to a point. But i i believed the framing of of the sources. I talked to that it had reached a point that you know this guy. Awkward pereira's that the gambler analytics i in the two thousand eighteen had an undue level of influence on the team and as many circling issues that were causing Causing the the dysfunction that existed that that he was a huge part of it even if only in some ways he was vehicle to show all these competing interests and you know people in narratives and powers in through lens clashing against each other. So you know. According to the story. I wrote according to the people. I talk to Yes i do think that mark is influenced by a singular person. He's he's listening to but also changes. It's been donny. It had been donny most often in the past. It had been very carlyle for one summer. Chandler parsons where bats. The person cuban was listening to kind of coming up with with team decisions and what the team was gonna And so it's either complicated person and you know only. He could tell you the truth whether whether he does have a broader perspective of fluency takes in but you know based off the actions in based off people who are very close the situation in seeing how it unfolded yet i think by my understanding and belief through the reporting is that you know he does lean a little bit too much into any single person busier at the moment. The piece opens tim with this anecdote from february. Where bob bulgaria. So you talked about is sitting courtside and luka doncic the mavericks star comes off the court. Vulgarity makes a motion him to kind of luca interprets as calm down. Calm down and donna says you don't have the right mr gambler analytics guy to tell me what to do. Here's that there. I heard on dallas radio. The fact the mavericks didn't have many fans in the stands made those kinds of interactions more here -able and see -able to people than they might have been if the stands were packed as they were before and now after the pandemic is there any truth to that i think there is. I don't think or i can say definitively that's not why or how i i heard that anecdote i you know it again. This is story that initiated internally and wasn't something that was brought to spy by leaks sourcing even though once once we started david diving in it was clear that had all these details at spread league-wide. But i think that's fair and in conversations. I've had people who were not sources all And in could it be but you know people who have understandings they you know in in conversations about they've asked me is similar questions like so you just heard about this because everybody's everybody's business righted like is that how this game about um in no i don't think it is but you know even. Espn share the detail. That we didn't have where lucas. Look at rick carlisle During a game at one point and says who's in charge you were bob and i. I believe my understanding of how they describe. That anecdote is that it was something that was heard by the team. They were playing that night and then that is our kind of proliferated around the league. And so i think that you know i. It's it's true in in not specifically how i came to the story but certainly when we went to lead sources starting cured from leak sources and they also had a lot of similar. You know facts and details that'd be published. I think it helps spread it around the league about manner. I will just ask a follow up here to the pandemic keeps you guys away from players and i assume away from road games too in a way that you might not normally have to deal with. Did that affect at all the reporting of the story the fact that you were somewhat more remote.

"It was more focused on that. It was focused on that in a school. We were in like a school hallway. Yes, Yes, I remember that somewhere. Yes. Um and you were talking to you about the brain. And as I talk about in my book, you talked about the brain in a very kind of literal sense in a kind of scientific way. That was very Um, easy for me to wrap my head around. I was interested in that and then I think when we met, I did ask you a couple questions about drinking and about drug use. And you kind of said to me Do you want to? I think you said, Would you like to talk about your drinking? That's right. Well, yeah. I mean, there are questions that were coming up that we're clear that you wanted to know more than just the show was addressing so I actually, um Was just asking if you wanted to talk more about that. You know the impact of drugs on the brain? Yeah. Yeah. You seemed interested? Yes. I'm always interested in the subject of drugs. And then yes, I mean, obviously, I was asking for a friend. So a friend who lives very close to your body. Yes, that one. Um s so Then we went round and you didn't find it because I didn't go to therapy right after the election. I interviewed down for my show. And then months later, I believe a couple of months later, I asked you to reach out to him and set an appointment. So that was sometime in 2017, Okay? Okay, So, um Let's talk about our therapy. Okay? I know you don't feel comfortable talking about this, So I have to constantly give you permission to talk about my therapy because it's out. The secret is out. So that's a great place to start because You know, usually or I would say always as a therapist. You know, I don't speak about the therapy with anyone but the therapist in the setting of therapy and so You know, as a professional, I'm a psychiatrist. It's good to now extremely unusual, too. Be in this situation where you know, number one. You wrote a book about our relationship in the therapeutic experience, and it's been incredibly inspiring for people. So that was an incredible gift. And then there have been now moments where, Because it's public. People will ask you about it, and we spoke one conference together where, you know, uh You brought up that I was the your therapist, and I had just given the Cato presentation right before years and then we're on the stage together for a Q and A and people seem to really respond to that. So You know, from the professional point of view. This is extremely unusual, but because it's your idea that you came up with it, and I actually think it could do good in the world. Then I'm open to really thinking deeply about doing this, even though it's not the usual Thing that has done of a therapist. And a client, a patient in the person working with them. Has this been a pain in the ass for you at all Me writing a book about us? Not even one moment. Well, that's great news because the response I got from the book was. The response is I get on my on social media and all the mess direct messages from all these strangers. About all their experiences of death and loss, and grief has been so moving and it was so unexpected. I mean, maybe it wasn't unexpected, but I didn't really I thought I was telling my own story, and I didn't realize I was telling a lot of people stories. Right? I think that's you know, And I've said this to you because I think Your work is really incredible gift. Here we go. I'm sorry if you could hold onto these compliments.

Interview with Kristin Musselman about Reactive Balance
"Welcome to discuss. Discussions and spinal cord injury sci where we bring you interviews with researchers and clinical leaders in spinal cord injury rehabilitation. I'm rachel tappin. today. I'll be speaking with dr kristen muscleman who is last author on a recent paper in the journal spinal cord along with co co-authors. Catherine chan jaywalking less journal. Unger angela you and k musani the papers titled reactive stepping after a forward fall in people living with incomplete spinal cord injury or disease. Dr muscleman is a physical therapist and scientists with the neural engineering and therapeutics team at the cato institute which is the research arm of the toronto rehabilitation institute. She's assistant professor in the department of physical therapy and rehabilitation sciences institute at university of toronto. She's active in the canadian physiotherapy association and now of course and the american physical therapy association with this very podcast. And she's academic lead of the walking measures group and the canadian community of practice for the practice spinal cord institute so welcome. Kristen muscleman. thanks rachel so much for having me. It's a pleasure to be here. I'm so happy to have you so. Let's start by talking about balance after spinal cord injury and i wanna talk about reactive balance in particular where the person needs to recover from a loss of balance. Can you just describe for us in general. What do we know. Or i guess. More specifically what did we know prior to this to this study in this area. Sure well react to balance. It's a key part of our posture control system. And as you kind of mentioned it really is our last line of defense against a fall so to try to recover balance that's been lost and so refers to our ability to reduce control of The movement of our center of mass where or to pull our center of mass back within our basis support and we we can do this through movement at the ankles hips. You know which we've Often called the ankle hit strategies or you can do it by taking Rapid reactive steps to try to increase our base of support. And it's this Rapid reactor stepping that. We've focused on in our research and you know surprisingly we actually don't know that much about reactive balance control after spinal cord injury We do know that. In other neurological populations like individuals living with the effects of stroke. The inability to take a reactive step is associated with the occurrence of falls And as many of those listening are aware people cred injury. Do you have a lot of falls as well. So a recent meta analysis found that seventy eight percent of the ambulance chasers with spinal cord. Injury will fall each year so it's definitely reasonable to expect that reactive balance control is impaired after injury but specifically what aspects are impaired wasn't known for example are there deficits related to the timing of the movements and muscle activation or insider their spatial deficits. So you know for example. Maybe they can't take a big enough react to step to appropriately reposition their center of mass. So those are some of the questions that we had. I'm going into doing this research. Great boy and i can certainly point to as a clinician. You're supporting things that i felt like. I knew already as i would experience that in the clinic of people having lots of difficulty with reactive balance after spinal cord injury and looking to the research literature and really having a hard time understanding how to proceed so for reinforcing or validating. The experience that i've had at least you study your your group did the study. And so what did you do. And what were the results. Yes what we wanted to do was to characterize reactive stepping in and people who are living with incomplete spinal cord injury so as a first step We compared their to stepping ability to out of age and sex matched individuals who have a spinal cord injury and what we decided to do in this for study is focus on two aspects of reactor stepping so i is is a behavioral response which just simply looks at. How are the participants recovering their balance after appreciation. So can they take a single step like most people who haven't neurological damage do or do they need to take several steps to reposition that center of mass in their basis support or are they unable to recover their balanced. So that's the behavioral piece that we looked at And then the second piece we looked at were these temporal parameters of reactive stepping so this includes things like the onset of muscle activity and legs And also the reaction time so you know. How quickly can they respond for that. We look at the length of time. Between the onset of the nation and then the actual movement That's elicited so in this case you know lifting off the switch a reactive step but what we needed to figure out how to look at this behavior in a standardized way and so we use a lot based assessment That's called the released test And this has been used with the stroke population it's also been used previously in older adults And basically what it does it simulates a forward fall of course in a safe way so if you just try to picture yourself standing and you're in a safety harness that's gonna prevent us from from hitting the ground if you were to lose your balance That saves you harnesses around your trunk. And then what we do. Is we attach a horizontal cable to the back of the safety harness right around the level of your lower back and then not cable which is about a meter long. It's attached to the wall behind you and you get asked to lean forward from your ankles as best as you can until about. Ten percent of your body weight is supported by that cable.
Trump Administration Adds Tariffs To Some Merchandise Out Of France
"If you're looking to buy a new handbag some cognac or a lipstick you could be looking at higher prices. That's because the trump administration is putting new tariffs on goods from europe. Npr's scott horsely explains. Why judy taylor runs. An upscale boutique in new york city called madison avenue tour. Among the items she sells are luxury handbags from paris which can retail for thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. We specialize in her mess. We have a robust online website and by appointment only showroom business online has been good. Taylor says even during the pandemic. if you can't travel and you want to do something for the holidays the chances are you're gonna buy something luxurious but the cost of importing. French handbags is about to go up as of today. The trump administration is imposing a twenty five percent tariff on more than a billion dollars worth of french imports including lipstick. Fancy soap and handbags. That's a challenge for taylor who was already facing higher prices for bags. As a result of factory shutdowns last spring little happen is basically the same thing that happened with everything passed onto the consumer. The administration says his living. These tariffs in retaliation for france's new tax on digital services which critics say unfairly targets. Us tech giants like google and facebook match years has an industry. Trade group called the computer and communications industry association when our trading partners are mating their new taxes after us companies it's clear their targeting american business for discriminatory treatment and it's necessary to take a stand and the new tax on handbags not the outgoing president's only parting tariff shot next week the administration courts new import taxes on cognac and certain wines from france and germany christine cacho of the distilled spirits council knows other european winds were already hit with import taxes as part of a long running battle over government. Subsidies for revel jet makers boeing and airbus. It's very unfortunate that our industry continues to be a victim in these trade disputes. That have nothing to do with our industry but that kind of collateral damage is not unusual in a trade war. Scotland succumb of libertarian. Cato institute notes that european tariffs took game at bourbon in an effort to get the attention of kentucky. Senator mitch mcconnell. The idea is to cause some pain to export orders. That are politically connected. American whiskey exports to europe have plunged by forty one percent since those tariffs were imposed. The kasha says the pain is not limited to mcconnell's home you know. American whiskey is actually exported from us distillers located in thirty nine states.

After Biden announces Minnesota campaign trip, Trump plans one of his own on same day
"Till Biden Announced a Minnesota campaign trip of first of his of this whole campaign cycle, but the same day that he announced that Trump planned one of his own for the same day. I love this. I love it funny from the Pioneer Press. Minnesota will see dueling campaign visits on the same day next week by Joe Biden and Donald Trump. What is this? Like the 100th time that Trump has been to or someone in the Trump in season six visit. That's amazing of what would be. I think it's the sixth visit of of what would be considered this election cycle. But we've had a ton of trump surrogates here, you know, on top of that. Fight in the Democratic presidential nominee and former vice president is set to make his first op in Minnesota. This campaign cycle with this announcement, he's said to visit the state next Friday is but his campaign announced that in a prepared statement, But no additional details about the stopper immediately available later in the day on Thursday, after he announced that Donald Trump's campaign announced plans to visit Bemidji next Friday as part of an airport hangar tour of the Midwest.

"cato" Discussed on NewsRadio WIOD
"Now. The Cato Institute thinks the story is that the left is divided. Liberals are divided on political expression. Strong liberal standout, however, is the only political group of feel they can express themselves. That's not the story. The story here is 77% of conservatives. Are essentially afraid to tell people what they really think. 77%. And it may be higher than that. How many? How many of them were honest, even in this poll? Good. Maybe 80. Maybe 80% are afraid to tell people what they think. And by the way I happen to believe it. I'm not surprised by it. I run into conservatives all the time. You want me to shut up if they're around me. Much less express their own opinions. They're afraid, literally afraid they don't want the hassle. They don't want the controversy. They don't want the discomfort. And so they either don't express an opinion and try to make it look like they're apathetic and therefore no threat or they lie. Thing trying to make it look like they are. Anti Trump. Because the safest behavioral mode When you are in the company of liberals, the safest behavior motives to be anti trump. Now you extrapolated all this into polling data. And Every time on this pro. Every time I make mention of the fact that I think there is this and it's not just me that there's this massive silent majority out there. That is so pro Trumpets. Eve, maybe even bigger. Then it was in 2016. You would not believe the number of e mails I get from people. You're right. You're right. Don't let go of this. This is the biggest UN reported story. It is the silent majority and how How much in favor of Trump they are but are afraid to say, said it's Friends. It's kind of shocking in a way. But it also means that these people do not want to engage. They don't want to engage the left. They're waiting for somebody else to do it. And that somebody else is Trump. Or maybe elected Republicans. So as all the statues come down And all of American history is attempted to be erased. The people steadfastly opposed to this. The people universally outraged by it. Don't say a word. And Thus make it appear that there is no opposition. What the left is doing. And the media capitalizes on that, like you can't believe Media capitalizes on the Notion that a majority of Americans agrees with everything black lives matter and antifa are saying That's what Not pushing back. Looks like So it's not that there is a divide among the left. It is that 77% of conservatives Self censor themselves. Because they're afraid. I'm not commenting on whether it's bad, Good, indifferent. Whatever to be afraid. I'm just acknowledging that it is Fear back to biting and his VP choice. Seriously, folks. He's painted himself into a corner here. Why in the world is the VP choice even matter if he's leading so big in these polls? Well, the answer is he isn't leaving in these polls that big His majority is nowhere near what they're reporting. And the media is very concerned about who his VP choice is going to be, because all of them Have something wrong with them that could hurt The campaign and the story. Talks about what some of those things are from candidate to candidate to candidate. Well, okay, let me give you an example. This is Ryan Lizza, who wrote the story. All the Democrats. I talked to agreed There are lots of good candidates. But there isn't one obvious one. There's nobody that stands out is the obvious choice. Susan Rice. Yeah, but she hasn't run for office before. Representative Karen Bass. Yeah, but she hasn't won anything statewide before. Focus. And Camilla Harris. Yeah, but they're not team players. About several of these women, it is said, but she hasn't had enough foreign policy experience. It's a lot of them. I don't think there's an obvious front runner, he said. And that's why it's going to come down to trust in relationships. There's no one ideal home run choice of the person whom the campaign is consulted about several potential running well, this comes out of the blue, doesn't it? Because up till now, every one of these women Was the creme de la creme in every one of these women could have been smoking. Every one of them could've been a great great choice. Now. None of them are what is this? None of them are And yet it's Biden has painted himself into the corner by suggesting he had to pick a black woman. Now, none of them. Are solid. Every one of them has some baggage that presents a problem. And yet what does it matter anyway? Because Biden's leading so big what All of this means is that you shouldn't be believing anything in the news about Biden leading in the polls about Biden being way ahead of Trump about the American people, preferring by none of it's true they couldn't write this story. If all those other things were true. And it also means they are not confident. That Biden is gonna win this thing Despite everything they're saying and reporting. They're worried about just exact opposite. They're worried that Trump has magic to pull out of a hat and will do it again. Every time you see a story Centered on the fact that Trump may not leave if he loses. What that means is, we actually think he's gonna win quick time out back with more. We'll get to the phones right after the peas America's.
India blocks TikTok and 58 other Chinese apps citing national security concerns
"India is banning dozens of Chinese APPS, including Tiktok some say it's retaliation. The move comes after twenty. Indian soldiers died in a clash with Chinese soldiers at a contentious border in the Himalayan mountains, but a senior Indian official told The Wall Street Journal that the APPS may have been used to harm the country's Defence Sector Wall Street Journal reporter Sean Lee has more. It's a huge deal. Because India is a very large market for tech companies in general and also specifically for Chinese tech companies for many of them, for example by Dan's, which is the owner of the very popular short video APP. Talk India is the biggest market for talk after. A lot of Chinese. Tech companies have found a lot of success in India. A lot of them invest in Indian startups, and they've accelerated that in the last few years, speaking of national security concerns and China the National Security Council and a number of other us. Agencies are lobbying European allies to oppose new tech, a Chinese company that makes security screening equipment a reporter Cato. KIEF has more the first. First concern is on national security grounds, because obviously this type of equipment can have access to a lot of both personal and business data, and so the US is concerned that with Chinese state-backed entity potentially having access to all that data that they could feed that back to the Chinese government, and that could create a national security concern, and the second issue is more on a commercial basis new tech. Tech has been winning tons of contracts because their prices are super low. The US says that's because they're heavy subsidies from the Chinese government, and along the way there, then driving a bunch of US competitors to the brink, because they're unable to to compete on price, you know it's a commercial concern that really you know new tackle be the only company left providing this equipment
Tech's free speech debate is about Zuckerberg vs. Dorsey
"Many Americans are facing different realities disparities in covert nineteen deaths for one and right now they're expressing outrage over different things for some stay at home orders have moved them to protest for others it's police violence against unarmed citizens it can feel as though we're living in two different countries so we're talking about that today and one of the places where you can feel America's divide is social media we're divisions are also stoked by trolls and disinformation social media companies try to monitor that to varying degrees and with varying success but even that is divisive as we've seen this week when president trump expressed fury after some of his tweets were flagged by Twitter for potentially misleading information about mail in balloting then yesterday the company flag one of his tweets about the Minneapolis protest for quote unquote glorifying violence president trump signed an executive order aiming to weaken legal protections tech companies have had for years it's unclear whether he has the authority to do that but given all the events of recent days we want to talk more about this so we've called three prominent figures in this debate Karen Swisher is the co founder of Rico that's a site focused on tech news and New York times contributing writer has been pushing Twitter in particular to take far more aggressive steps in policing false information Swisher welcome back thanks for joining us once again thanks so much financial or is the executive director of aspen digital that's a non partisan organization that researches issues related to tech and digital media and she has a long resume in both digital and traditional media including as a president and CEO of NPR so we very much welcome back to you via thanks Michelle glad to be here Matthew Feeney is the director of the project on emerging technologies at the Cato Institute that's a libertarian research and advocacy group here in Washington DC Matthew Feeney welcome to you thank you for joining us as well no thanks for having me the cast which I'm going to start with you because on Wednesday you wrote an op ed in The New York Times this is after Twitter label to the president's tweets regarding mail in ballots as potentially misleading and they added some contextual information and you called this move a baby step why well it's the first thing they can do I mean a lot of they could have banned them they could have taken down the tweet they could have a lot of things but this is the first time Twitter is ever done any kind of I don't want to use the word punishment this is the wrong thing they've ever taken any action against president trump when he violates their rules which he does all the time you know we could spend a whole program talking about this will tell us more broadly what's your point of view about this well I think they are like publishers and so they have some responsibility instead they allow all district to wash over their platforms and in fact get taken advantage of by malevolent forces and so I think they should do more monitoring of it to fit first of all I love them just to get rid of some of the stuff that's obviously used for propaganda but they just let anybody do anything and what it does is create this sort of giant mass of humanity which nobody knows what is true or not and then other players take advantage of it Alex Jones was the most famous obviously he got tossed off all the platforms so you usually what I want to say you are here and your own capacity as a media executive as a person with a deep background in addition to working at NPR as a president CEO you also work for Twitter but I'm going to ask you on your own hook to tell us what you think about this week's news look I think Twitter has been slow on this I think they should have taken action some time ago that said these are really tricky decisions Twitter now that they've taken an action with the president it's going to be really difficult for them to keep up you know there are five hundred million tweets roughly that are sent every day and there are already calls across the board of what about this tweet what about that tweet and it's going to be very very tricky for them I'm glad they took the move but now the camel's nose in the tent Mr anywhere your thoughts I think this puts on not just with about other social media comes into a tough spot here which is that they are trying to figure out how to moderate this kind of content while remaining in the eyes of the uses the gentleman and it's not a surprise to me at all that in the wake of a good decision to fact check that they have been allegations of inconsistency but anyone looking for inconsistency and this debate is is short to find its there are hundreds of hours of footage uploaded to YouTube every minute there are hundreds of millions of tweets posted every day Hey the system won't be perfect and in fact the way that these phones tree contents depends not oftentimes on the Afrin content itself but what's being said about this and and that is something I wish more people understood in the debate which is a really really hard decisions and unfortunately causing a lot of people on the political rights in the United States of feeling bad somehow agencies would be better at this than private companies and while I think will will never be completely happy with how these private firms navigate these difficult content moderation decisions I would much prefer a private family of public failure in this film while some are because I think of the history of government regulation of speech reveals lessons namely that we should be wary office the fact is that social media is much more than Silicon Valley and their alternatives out there of course the the interesting thing about all of this is that in this debate many people on the Merican conservative space seem to forget that competition is is valuable there all of the social media networks out there well Mister you raised the issue that is it's you know we raising it kind of as a back drop here but it is actually a very big part of this whole discussion which is that there is this argument on the right which is certainly embraced by president trump that these companies social media companies are silencing conservative voices but Democrats and progressives have their own criticisms which is that these platforms have no standards and allow people to be libeled and slandered and somebody's very painful and in some cases dangerous ways I mean the data on the fact that women how women in particular women of color treated on these platforms and targeted particularly public figures who are women there's a great deal of data about the fact that and how they are targeted so she took care of so so the question then becomes you know how to do these things get address of care you want to jump in please do yeah I think let's be clear these are private companies they're not public squares and that's the one thing that seems to happen with the writer like my free speech rights be able to specifically you can't these are private companies owned by billionaires they can set whatever standards they want number one number two there's no evidence that there's any bias in anyway but there is evidence of his abuse of people of people getting abused by by the way on all sides and that's really the problem here is the ability to allow toxicity in lies to continue and that's something a private company should be dealing with but not legislated by the government there is there are certain things you can do and liabilities and things like that that media companies have had dealt with for for a very long time and so there's all kinds of solutions that are possible but I think the really problematic thing is considering these places to be the public square did you can do anything on me what do you think should happen here well I completely agree that there is no place for government regulation here that is a path to a very dangerous place but social media companies must take responsibility I applaud Twitter for actually making an effort here even though I think the path they're choosing is very difficult I was very disappointed in mark Zuckerberg's statements on fox news of all places saying that they don't want to be quote unquote the arbiters of truth they already are algorithms serve certain truths even if they're not human intervention involved they are going to have to I think eventually take some action the oversight board is a step but it's it's not enough we are in a moment now where these divisions have come to the fore we know for a fact that sometimes these mechanisms are used to kind of organize protest organized too really it globally certainly it is the case that they've been used both by people who are trying to find ways to resist government oppression but they've also been used by governments to advance oppressive mechanisms right so do they have a role here to play right now that you think would be constructive and I guess I'll start with you Kerr Swisher yeah absolutely they've been doing a very good job on cove in nineteen information they've been stamping out all kinds of bad health information except for president trump's they took down a bowl scenario they took down Maduro they took down a lot of stuff there and a lot of other stuff so during cove and it shows all of them Facebook Twitter all of them can do it and they can do it well and there was no controversy about that so they're totally capable but they're also capable of creating commonality look at all of the really wonderful stuff from Sarah Cooper to comics to people making jokes that can be used for commonality in a really positive way it's just they're designed towards in rage meant and that's the engagement is designed towards arrangement and that's
Is Sweden right in its handling of COVID-19?
"When most of Europe went into strict lockdown in much Sweden but the trend social distancing was recommended and large gatherings were banned but restaurants workplaces and junior schools and boarders. I stayed open in pursuit of what some people call herd immunity strategy. So how's it going? And what listens are there for Australia? Will Swedish Intellectual Johan? Norberg is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and he's author of progress ten reasons to look forward to the future Johan welcome back to between the lines. Thank you great to be back now this week. The Australian Treasury Josh Freudenberg was asked if we would follow the Swedish example as we into the next stage of the vars response and he ruled it out and he said quote. Sweden has forty percent of Australia's population but Sydney tons the death right. The numbers speak for themselves. That's Josh Freudenberg. Our Prime Minister Scott Morrison waiting. He called Sweden's approach a death sentence. Johan what do you think well? I have to admit that compared to Australia. Sweden does not look like a success but in fact nothing looks like a success. Compared to Australia right now except for possibly New Zealand is in the same vicinity but every European country has suffered much much worse whether they've had entered lockdowns or more of a Swedish line and I think that's partly because we got the transmission Into our population at earlier in a more massive stage. It's more difficult to when we have all these land borders next to countries with millions and millions of people and of infected so. I don't think the comparison with Australia is. Is that relevant apart? From the fact that you also have to deal with it longtime when you get out of the lockdowns and when you begin to approach more of an open world again with will global travel then at least the World Health Organization says that Sweden might be a model to look to in any case and and and despite everything so far Sweden has been an outlier when it comes to policy but not when it comes to the outcomes sweetness somewhere in the middle when it comes to European states. Okay no matter how you add the numbers up. Sweden has more deaths than your Nordic neighbours. What do you expect to see in those countries as as Tonga's on that's true so far it looks worse in Sweden? But why is that well? The assumption from Swedish L. Authorities. Is that our neighbors. They have merely postponed cases and deaths. They have not avoided them. They went into lockdown. Which means that in the short run. It looks good but once they get out of it and they're starting to get out of it now. The the lockdowns on the shutdowns. They're bound to see a second wave of infections and deaths the thing to ask when you look at the Swedish model is at. Did we avoid to overwhelm our healthcare system Did those who suffer and died from covy. Nineteen would they have died in any case if they got this disease six months later or twelve months later? So did we avoid that kind of healthcare breakdown and it seems like we did that all the time. The intensive care units have had an excess capacities. Weeden by around twenty percent. So far so it seems like They they would have died from the disease whenever we got the disease into our population. And what I expect from our neighbors. Unfortunately that without a vaccine and that might be a year away and could take much longer. They won't be able to avoid it in the long run and they will suffer those consequences once they get out of lockdown.
Make Australia Gay Again
"Okay. Jeremy. So you found these stamps. They're clearly very gay What what's the deal like? Where do they come from? I've never heard of this Gay Kingdom what is it where is it and how can I move there? Are you messing with this? Jeremy is even a real thing. It's actually real and I've been working all day and night to find out more. I've called experts from the United Nations. The Council on Foreign Relations. I've made burner phones. My apartment's walls are covered and post it. Notes detailing epic story behind this kingdom yarn. Did you connect them John? It's GonNa ask the same thing. Yes it's required and after lots of law sleep. I think I finally have some answers. Hermit sexual people have honestly endeavoured everywhere to merge ourselves in the social life of surrounding communities and to be treated equally. This is an excerpt from the declaration of Independence of the gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the coral sea islands. A nation created for life liberty the pursuit of happiness. And all things gay well technically. It's a micro nation. So we'll micro nation is a place that declares that they are a nation but aren't recognized by other countries So it's basically someone walks out into their front yard and they're like my front yard is a nation In their mind they are their own country but they don't really have any recognition or any kind of Legitimacy in terms of the global stage this is Derrick Thomas. I tracked him down after he made fun video online about the gay and Lesbian Kingdom. I created a youtube channel. That has an ongoing series on micro nations and kind of the funny stuff that they get up to so there see land of land lower Malaysia. Lieber Land Danica in the Game Lesbian Kingdom of the Cross island. Derek told me that this gay kingdom was born in two thousand four when Australia passed a law saying that marriage was strictly between a man and a woman with gay marriage all the rage in America. The changes here a designed to thwart any similar attempts legal recognition. At Dav aside their community is facing a new wave way of homophobia. Here's John Howard. The prime minister at the time. The definition of marriage is something that should not a time potentially be subject to redefinition will change so in an attempt to protect against future gay marriages the law said marriage is by definition between a man and a woman and every single wedding ceremony in Australia. I kid you not that definition had to be like at your wedding you would need to say the words marriage. According to law in Australia is the Union of a man and a woman. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard in so romantic really but Derek said it actually kind of backfired and drew a lot more attention from activists about gay marriage than ever before Australia including one group in two thousand and four a group of gay rights activists who were attending the Brisbane. Gay Pride Festival Were frustrated with two thousand four marriage amendment act in Australia. They got on a boat. Well a seaplane That they christened the gay flower sailed it out to an island in the coral sea islands. Territory called CATO. Island planted a flag and said this is our country now Gay Marriage is legal. And that's kind of how the gain lesbian keenum of coral sea islands
Bailouts might not be popular, but there is no Plan B for a pandemic
"Stocks have come crashing down because of the corona virus the Dow is now thirty five percent lower than its record high last month it's no wonder companies all over the country are saying they need a bailout Congress is preparing to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to help them but not everyone thinks that's a good idea as NPR's Jim zarroli reports just in a matter of days the bottom fell out of the U. S. airline industry here's Nicholas Calio of the trade group airlines for America on CNBC today I've never seen anything like it no one has the speed and degradation of the business has been just mind boggling and it's not just airlines under siege cruise ships restaurants even native American casinos have seen their revenue fall off a cliff and they're lining up for help president trump says these companies aren't to blame for what's happened and he's made clear he's ready to assist them we're also looking to help companies such as the airline industry within the airline industry and we'll be doing that for Republicans who bitterly opposed the Obama administration's auto bailout the idea of extending federal largesse to companies hurt by this epidemic is hard to swallow here's Nebraska senator Ben Sasse this week if you're an industry with a good lobbying team you're told the line up to the door of the treasury department and get the line because bailout after bailout is probably in the offing and former U. N. ambassador Nikki Haley dislikes the idea of an airline bailouts so much that she resigned from Boeing's board yesterday opposition notwithstanding Congress is plowing ahead with the rescue bill Republicans in the Senate have proposed a one hundred and fifty billion dollar plan for distressed companies there would be a separate pot of money for airlines and air cargo companies says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell we're not talking about a taxpayer funded solutions for companies that made mistakes we're talking about loans for their part Democrats want conditions attached to any rescue money like promises not to cut jobs and they want more of it to go to fund unemployment insurance for the hundreds of thousands of people getting laid off however the money is distributed the rescue poses big problems says Jeff Myron director of economic studies at the Cato Institute this is just gonna end up being a big transfer to those industries that are politically well connected and can paint a case that makes it look as though they were especially hard hit by the by the epidemic Myron says once Congress starts handing out money where does it stop why not rescue universities or even sports teams they've been hurt by the virus to Dennis Kelleher is president of the Wall Street reform group better markets he says a lot of companies have been badly managed in recent years and may not deserve to be saved they borrowed too heavily for example and often the money went not to their employees but to fund share buybacks that just made their stockholders wealthier taxpayers should only have to provide aid to companies that are vital to the United States and only companies that otherwise act in a responsible manner Kelleher points out that the big Wall Street bailout of two thousand eight proved to be especially on popular with the public with lasting political a fax and he says the onus is on Congress to do a better job this
What happens if Uncle Sam goes home?
"Support for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders indicates more and more. Americans are questioning the nation's role as global leader. But what happens if Washington Jettison? Us alliances and ended the Ford Presence of U. S. forces according to Thomas wrought in the Lightest Foreign Affairs magazine. That's a distinguished New York based journal a strategy of Retrenchment. He argues would among other things. Destabilize the regional security orders about Europe and Asia increase the risks of nuclear proliferation and aggravate the threat of major power conflict. The foreign affairs article is cold. The folly retrenchment. Why America can't withdraw from the world? The author Thomas Rod is director of the Center for the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution and is affiliated as Nonresident Fellow with the Lowy Institute in Sydney. He's based in Washington. Hi there Tom Hi Tom. It's great to be Richard and join us in cine studio. Is Doug Bandow? He's a senior fellow at the Cato Institute also in Washington a former special assistant to President Ronald Reagan and this she's scholar in residence at the Center for Independent Studies. That's a Sydney based think tank that I had welcome back. I glad to be on Tom. Tom Why do you still support a foreign policy? Strategy that Yusei quote has served the US. Whoa for decades. Well I think that the you know the. Us has had a critical role to play in Europe and in Asia since the end of our two and then after the Cold War And I think it really has worked. You know it's it's created sort of stable open and prosperous regional orders. I think if the US was to withdraw from those regions those orders will be at jeopardize some. We'd see all sorts of negative effects and I think as we look at American farm policy. Be Up to distinguish between some of the conflicts in Afghanistan and elsewhere that might make sense to to to pull back from or to to to end and the more broad sort of American commitment to international security. And I'm sort of worry that we might throw the baby out with about water in this when we talk about you know how engaged the US should be in the world but your critics would say that the US has over extended itself Particularly in nations. That don't directly affect the American national interests. I think of Afghanistan Iraq Libya many people would say strategic disaster after strategic disaster. Doesn't that undermine the case for? Us Global leadership role. Well I think that we can. We can debate the merits of of each of those and certainly in Afghanistan. Icee in the piece that it's time to end the the Board Air. I think Iraq is a sort of a tricky case because there needs to be some sort of a small presence to prevent the resurgence of Isis. And but the main point of the piece actually is that the US has not overextended in Europe and Asia. So all those cases you mentioned are sort of the Greater Middle East right there nod And Not in Europe not in Asia and I think the strategy in those two regions is basically working has worked quite well and so I don't really see the evidence of an over extension in either of those two places over extension dot band. I think we're clearly overextended. The problem is it's going to get worse. You look financially at the United States. It has a trillion dollar annual deficit for the foreseeable future without a financial crisis. Those numbers will get worse of the entitlements. Is the elderly retire? The question is how one maintains globe spanning military capable of trying to contain nations along their borders essentially everywhere and also fund other commitments. I think is going to put enormous pressure on the US budget. And I think what we see today is basically an overhang of a policy. It's inertia for policy that worked well in terms of containing the Soviet Union but doesn't make much sense when it comes to Russia and a policy that in East Asia's very complicated China's strikes me as being the major problem that we face but it makes no sense to extend ourselves everywhere for primarily concerned about China. I kept isn't a US. Pullback from Asia and Europe want that be more likely to embolden regional powers like China and Russia. I don't view Russia's being particularly strong power the stage Russia doesn't dominate Europe the way the Soviet Union threatened do so Russia doesn't have anywhere close to the relative strength towards Europe that China does Europe strikes me as being a very good example of where history suggests we should change policy changing circumstances. Meena change the policy now argue frankly. Us policy's been destabilizing. American policy towards Russia in terms of NATO expansion involvement in Ukraine and Georgia has actually provoked the Russians and has created greater problems there and argue greater threats than an alternative policy. Would Have Tom Rock. Well I guess I would sort of ask Doug if you pull of NATO or reduce the US commitment to troops in the to to the countries in the Baltics Eastern Central Europe. I mean I see the presence there as having a deterrent effect. In that if we didn't have NATO Basically have Russian incursions into those countries in greater instability. I also think NATO helps to sort of try to slow the rise of authoritarian intimate some of those countries. We have big problems in Hungary and elsewhere. I think if NATO was to disband pullback those problems get worse than that. We need to be more focused. On Democracy. In those countries that are currently in the NATO Blah if as the retentions argue the US should basically withdraw from NATO or weedy ended started military. An present there that will have significant negative consequences in another part of Tom. Wright's thesis in his Foreign Affairs as I dug Bandau is that. Us retrenchment leads to nuclear proliferation that is US allies. No longer protected by uncle. Sam would be tempted to acquire nuclear weapons of their own. Why Co that danger Doug Bandow? Everything's relative here. Sometimes you live in a world with bad choices so if the question is to the United States forever defend lots of allies being willing to sacrifice American cities to defend them or should they have nuclear capabilities. Themselves it's not so clear to me. That proliferation is such a bad thing. It's not a good thing but the question is does. The United wanted to risk Los Angeles to protect Taipei and Sydney and Seoul and Tokyo should the US be prepared to risk. You know. The United States still cities and dealing with Russia when in fact already Britain and France have nuclear weapons. Perhaps the European Union are some European defense for should also have nuclear capabilities. I don't think that it's a good alternative. On the other hand the assumption undebated you know kind of unconsidered. I think that. Us should of course maintain this Really starts falling apart especially in Northeast Asia if North Korea possesses missiles capable of hitting the United States and targeting American cities doesn't make any sense for the United States to be prepared to go to war on the Korean Peninsula. What risks are at stake? What interests are at stake? I look at that and say this really is at point to argue that. Maybe we need to reconsider. Who has want Tom Rod on that note? How would you respond to Doug? Bangles question does the. Us wants to risk of Los Angeles to protect Taiwan. Yeah I just. I just think it's really. You know in the exaggerated concern. I mean this is a very real concern. At the height of the Cold War there was a problem. Extended deterrence you know. Obviously there was a number of Said's and brinksmanship but since the Cold War the US has been able to deter Russia in Europe and Saudi. Different way you know actors in Asia what I going to the brink of a global crisis and You know that would precipitate nuclear war. Hasn't we haven't seen that pattern of crises in the last three decades so The evidence would suggest that deterrence in Europe is fairly stable. I came guests. Doug band out from Kite. When Thomas Rod from Brookings? Both prominent washington-based think tanks. And we're dividing. Tom's lightest site in Foreign Affairs magazine. The folly of retrenchment. Why America can't withdraw from the world before we turn to Australia's neighborhood in is Doug. I just want to put it back to you on this question of pulling America out of certain regions. Say the Middle East if the US pulls out of Iraq and Syria a want you just invite those suny jihadist or even the Shia militias to fill the void while they're already there. I mean the reason. Shia militias are active in Iraq is because we blew it up. I mean the notion that America promotes stability in the Middle East. I think is a fantasy the? Us helped blow up Libya now. We created the precedent that if you're dumb enough to give up your nuclear weapons and missiles we take you out who what dictator wants to follow more Merck Offi. I think the the Iraq circumstance you cannot complain about Iranian involvement there when we took out the anti Iranian dictator. So I don't see us as being able to promote relative stability in Iraq in twenty eleven when Obama Administration withdrew. Us troops that created a vacuum for those Sunni. Jihadists non-islamic stunned. I mean th this. As soon as you hottest were active. The reason we have al-Qaeda's it was created al Qaeda in Iraq which transmuted into Isis Obama pulled out following the George W Bush plan Bush could not get a status of forces agreement through when he had all the troops. So the blame Obama for this. I think is silly. And if American troops had been there there's no reason to think they would have maintained stability they would have been a target not only of Shia militias it would have been targeted Sunnis. Both sides would viewed the United States as being a problem. I told me dot band now. He he's a former Reagan. Adviser Menu reflects with I express themselves in different ways Obama trump and sands would essentially agree with Doug Bandow. How would you respond? But I think Obama. The Obama Administration came to the conclusion that it had sort of made a mistake in pulling out of Iraq in the manner in which it did because it went back in. You know to fight. Isis applied played an isis merged So I think you know. I think there's a tendency when we look at these issues you know to say the US withdraw from all of these conflicts to say. It's a Bama toward the beginning. Iraq was the wrong war. Could start it on false. Premises and Afghanistan was the good war Because it was legitimate when it began and broader than looking at the strategic consequences of both which are sort of independent of the causes right. And you know if you have a country `significant you know as Iraq in the heart of the Middle East. What goes on there has consequences and consequences for the region at a time when there is still continuing terrorism threat. I think is happening now. Let's bring it to Asia a dog. You obviously five a retrenchment of US power from not just Europe in the Middle East. I completely get that but you also support a retrenchment from East Asia question. Why China just feel the strategic vacuum left by Uncle Sam and therefore threaten the integrity of many sovereign states in the region. Doug Bandow well. China's the great challenge and the question of how to deal with China. There's no easy answer. I think the question of what America's role should be. It's clearly much more of a backup role it's not America's job to protect scarborough reef for the Filipinos me last year. Rodriguez territory announced after the Chinese Sankar ship. The US should send the navy in and start bombing. And I'm here with them. I mean it shows the danger of essentially transferring these decisions to local powers. And there's no doubt I think providing security guarantees
Caucus chaos in Iowa
"But first the United States before Americans cast votes for president in November election. The Democrats have to decide who I should nominate their party in the rice against President Donald Trump. Now that happens in fifty states and territories through voting contests called primaries and caucuses. The first race was this week in Iowa and there were at least for two. Is No results extrordinary. There was outright confusion as democratic critic officials sodded quality control if it's to say this is caused democratic anxiety. It's an understatement night. The Arnie the Democrats have spent more than three years questioning the legitimacy of the twenty sixteen election yet now I see the legitimacy of their own democratic process questioned well for more on Iowa and what it means for the shape of US foreign policy. Let's turn to our panel. Doug Bandow is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute in Washington and a former special assistant to President Role Reagan Doug happy to be on Garon. A good cheek is a lecturer in the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney Sydney and the United States study said. Welcome back to our anger on pretty till we hear. Let's start with this fiasco in Iowa. What did you make of it? Doug Oh it's a disaster aster for the Democratic Party. It's embarrassing. It's an embarrassment for the United States as well and frankly it's a victory for Donald Trump. It allows him to make jokes about the the Democrats across. It makes it very difficult for them to be taken seriously and it creates conspiracy theories within the Democratic Party. It's very bad all around. We're talking about conspiracy theories series momentum appears to be with Bernie Sanders. He's the socialist anti-establishment candidate looks like he's more or less running on power with a Buddha Zhai the former mayor in Indiana but he's over now to win New Hampshire in February but his supporters. Garon I think the party establishment is trying to block. They candidate plausible. Well they saw goes back to two thousand sixteen when we saw really heated primaries raise between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Rick Clinton. We all know how that went end. for a pretty substantial probably portion of Bernie Sanders supporters. This is basically a chance to do the right thing. Now that in two thousand sixteen. They didn't get the result that they wanted so obviously any sort of kind of of issues with with any of the primaries for them will be seen probably probably as a Democratic National Committee's way of Preventing Bernie Sanders from winning the party nomination at the same in time the establishment candidate jibe on the former vice president distant fourth easy damaged goods. Doug Bandow always very damaged. You'll the he's a two term vice president he was in the US Senate for many years. He's someone who has been tabbed as the front runner. He's leading the national polls. You know it's one thing to come. I'm in second you know. I was an odd status. In agricultural status moment western state is really not representative but to come in fourth behind the to Progressive Zan. Dan Buddha gauge is I think extremely damaging. He's moving on to New Hampshire. Where in fact he is behind in the polls you know if he loses both of these you go down to South Carolina the end of the month? You know he's only five points ahead in the last poll if he loses that he has real problems then the conceivable that the other establishment candidate Mark Bloomberg. He's the billionaire former New York. May He's the big unknown he now. It seems wisely was not on the ballot in Iowa but he supported early success for Sanders as beneficial for Bloomberg wagering that it will. You know. Forced moderates lock Barden Buddha Jai to drop out along the way and clear wife or a light swing to Bloomberg grandma so the theory goes and obviously when things come through to be tested in practice we we shall see what what happens. Especially after Super Tuesday but there is this certainly a theory. That really is Biden. Dwindles this leave space. Space for Bloomberg any specially if it comes to Wisconsin in July for the Democratic National Convention and if there is a number of contenders still there is no one would majority there. Might be someone. With plurality Mike Bloomberg could certainly emerge as a kingmaker and and maybe this is the sort of strategy that his companions and that my explain Doug that after this Iowa debacle. He Bloomberg's doubling down on his advertising tossing Spain. But how does he support. Actually Rahm Bloomberg is. I think we'll have trouble getting a lot of personal support on the other hand. He may be seen as the best alternative live. You know somebody who is more centrist orientation. He's smart he's presentable and he has a lot of money he can match any spending from Donald Trump. The problem is he's run as a Republican before he's Kinda cold fish. He's not very personable. He has problems as a candidate. But again word a different world and for Democrats if you're looking for an alternative to the progressives if you're scared of the idea of a millionaire socialist you're representing your party Bloomberg might be the guy in July or he can be the guy to anoint. The person who gets now you've had dealings with Bloomberg. What's the nature of your of your dealings with? The Bloomberg was a couple of years ago bringing in foreign policy people to argue issues. I mean in many ways. It was quite impressive. He sat with us out Bloomberg along with yet a foreign policy adviser and he brought three of us in in my case to talk about Syria. The man is clearly well informed. He understands issues. He's smart. He's engaged. He was down to Earth. The problem is from his standpoint. I think being a presidential candidate is typically ebbing smartening in. That sense doesn't really get you a lot of votes in a way. That being personable empathizing these sorts of things. And he's not really that kind of a character but I was impressed impressed with him. He struck me as somebody who is competent. Who If as president he could very well do a good job depending on what you thought of him on the issues? So I think he'll he. He will make a mark doc in this race. He's a smart guy who's willing to spend tens of millions of dollars you can't ignore. My guests are dot band out from the institute in Washington and Gerona Good. She's from the University of Sydney and the US study center

"cato" Discussed on KTOK
"Cato is is with us on the phone now Max locate is a is a New York times bestselling author but we're not gonna hold that against him he he is a pastor and a good friend of the program and somebody who makes millions of people he helps them I should say find their happiness and he has a new book out called how happiness happens finding lasting joy in a world of comparison disappointment and unmet expectations this is the problem with the world when you look at the stats. we're not happy and they're not finding happiness because they're looking for it in all the wrong places Max locate a welcome to the program boy you're really kind to have me on it it's a treat to talk to you I I thank you Max and yesterday you were supposed to be on you even traveled all the way up here and we had a bug in issue and so you know wearing thank you no worries all right so Max tell me the problem first is if we don't know it but you you lay out some stats. it's it's fascinating gland I'd be curious you're if you're if you're surprised as I was when I read that only one in three Americans surveyed that indicated that they consider themselves to be happy. I think it had you press me on that one out I would have thought I all I don't know maybe three out of four happy even fifty fifty percent but the only one in three Americans have enough happiness to generate the where with all to check the yes on the happiness box but I think that goes to are suicide rate yelling through the roof I mean to freshen right yeah and you you see the you know you see what's happening on social media we are we are living in a world of comparisons and it's not healthy I'm good yeah and in comparison which is this age old problem right we always compare ourselves with others you know even the ten commandments has a lot to say about coveting what your neighbor has to hone your neighbors Mary and it's what you're not even what your god is exactly exactly comparison either create feelings of superiority or inferiority neither one of which are healthy and so it's it's a it and yet it just seems like in the this last generation it's really taking its toll on us. I will tell you Max that I have. personal testimony on this I mean I'm a guy who has gone through twenty years of of a you know having it all is what the world says is great and and being miserable in it and finding real happiness at my home and with my children and in the quiet times I mean it's it's it doesn't even compare to anything of the world can give you. and that discovery has come as a result of some influence of others are just personal discovery how how would you say that. personal discovery and and finding that you know more and more every day that what I think I you should be doing or what I think is important is empty and then the just discovering that the more time I spent with my family the more time I spent with my children the happier I was to the point to where I'm addicted to it. what a healthy addiction that is that is that is I'm gonna interesting philosophy at least I think it's interesting I'm gonna philosophy I'll let others remain the visitors thing or not but but you know I grew up in the television generation here I am with the Medicaid Medicare application on my desk bad to be sixty five so I grew up in the TV generation my kids grew up in the internet generation and now people are growing up in the social media generation and so people especially check that teenagers are getting a triple whammy of of the advertising initiative that his besieged our generation unlike any other in the history of the world right I mean no one has ever had so many people with such sophisticated strategies tell them that they are unhappy which is at the core of every good advertising campaign you've got to convince me I'm unhappy in the hope that I will but this is how to make me happy and then that doesn't work and the whole cycle. a you know it repeats itself and I wondered you know this this just terrible epidemic of suicide this terrible increasing rates of depression which is projected to be second only to heart disease as the leading illness well within the next you know maybe the next five years I have wondered how much of that can be attributed to this this this this this fusel lodge of advertisements that their existing to help me think I'm at that happiness comes from what I can. when I can retire and and how much happier we would be if we could make the discovery that you have made and that is that happiness happens not when you have something more but when your pre **** what you already have yes and when you make other people happy yes so what is the what is the key you have how do you how do you set people on this discovery well thanks for asking. hello again thanks let me on the program you know I I think I think this one of their your car so many countercultural the passages in the Bible but one that really speaks to this issue is is when Jesus said it is better to give than receive and and and really that degree term there it is better to give it is better is more blessed to give is the word from which we get the word happiness in other words happiness will happen when you give happiness to others so in the book I I and packed the the passages in the Bible that we call one another versus like encourage one another teach one another admonish one another greet one another forgive one another there's fifty nine of them there's not don't worry their stuff fifty nine chapters in the book that would make anyone happy but I reduce them down to ten and I just challenge people try this out you'll find that real happiness happens when you make other people happy and here's a here's just a little person interpersonal relationship one oh one book on how the Bible teaches us to to to do good for other people. so who am I need one of the problems that we have I think is accented by your solution and that is there isn't a lot of togetherness right now. and there's there's we we are so separated into groups that it's getting down to individuals now to where we don't think we have anything in common or we are so desperate for a team that will sell our soul for that team. mall area yeah you're really get hit the nail on the head here at the end and I don't quite know how we got to this point but this is like a a it's like our civilization is a collection of islands and in in their tiny islands in this archipelago that we call humanity and we helped each get on our own little tiny tiny island in the in in the islands are defined by what we did the the opinions that we have and what other than agreed just to disagree agreeably we we disagree disagree applique yeah we isolate we cluster in Oregon and it's getting smaller and smaller I found this even in like right now I'm on a book tour okay and I'm traveling around talking to people and will post that I'm gonna be on such and such programmer all tell somebody I'm gonna be on such and such a program I'm surprised how much push back people give. looking at all that show that guy or that lady they promote that are done and I say I don't care I mean we're not gonna talk about that and whether or not they do is it can't we find common ground we're all human beings hiccup we breathe the same air were made by the same god we we may have different opinions but we've got to find a way to to be I don't know more civil rights so Max I I'm so glad to hear you say that this is something that I've really been working towards for a while and felt very very alone five years ago and I am finding more and more people that is you say those islands are getting smaller and smaller people are jumping off those islands and their swimming to a mainland and then that mainland is unrecognized so far by the majority of society but they are they're jumping off of those islands and their swimming toward the mainland where other people who they don't agree with are just standing there going I don't want to do that anymore yeah and that's growing and if we can you think so I do I do if you don't know no I agree I agree it's very distasteful life on those tiny I it is it is and I I contend that kind of made a point here Reese the just in the last few minutes about politics and I'm gonna go into it you know it later on in the program that. what we're talking now with politics we're not even talking about the real general we are fighting over ideas and we don't we're without even stating them and I contended that there is enough people in the country that if someone would come and say look here's the idea we all leave each other alone and we chose to be cool with one another and we stop all this fighting that person would win I agree and and you know what I'm saying I think the by product would be we can have some health the discussions may be read some solutions on these everybody wants the immigration issue to be resolved right these are human beings hello yeah peacefully and and equitably for everybody exactly and and there's got to be a solution everybody wants I don't know health care everybody wants it to be figured out but since we can't seem to discuss it in a civil manner the possibility of a out maybe I'm just being naive gland but that you have been a pastor for forty years and into some hot. Esther is good training and in human nature at E. some twelve sometimes we succeeded but of I'm sorry sometimes we have not succeeded but most the time I think we have in our little church there in San Antonio Texas we found a way to disagree agreeably and just keep chugging along together we agreed that the big things are you know a good god in a in a loving savior we're gonna agree on that we're gonna greeted disagreeing only smaller issues and and it is just cannot we gotta do stuff like that to to reach a consensus to move forward the name of the book is how happiness happens Max locate Max was scheduled to be on with a a podcasts with me where we could spend ninety minutes and really talk I I'm sorry I know you already we've we dissed you yesterday. I love to have you if you have time in your schedule to come back and make that a part of your sexual great yeah you know because I think it's always a treat to talk to you though in any in any format Max if you can't do that I'd love to have you back on radio again and talk to you because I think that you are you're on the right track people are hungry for it they don't know how to find it anymore and I think twenty twenty is going to be a even a harder year to find the truth and to find happiness yes Sir thank you so much okay thank you all the best to you.
By blacklisting Huawei, the US could be shooting itself in the foot
"There's an interesting observation to be made here about the global economy, things that usually happened really, really slowly. Until they happen. Really, really fast. Oh, explain from American public media. This is marketplace. In Los Angeles. I'm KAI Ryssdal. It is Thursday. Today, the sixteenth of mega is always to have you along, everybody. We begin today with this ten days ago, Amir week and a half. Every indication was that the trade mad disagreements between the United States and China were all but solved couple more meetings, a quick Trump's, she phone call done and done. Now. It's tariffs as far as the I can see. And as of yesterday quite possibly a breakdown in the heavily, integrated and extremely globalized technology supply chain, we refer here, of course, to the Trump administration, effectively blacklisting, the Chinese technology, giant hallway, which will cut that company off from its American suppliers, chips, from Qualcomm and phone software from Google to name. Just a couple. You're all that in with bands on while way in other countries. And as marketplace's Scott Tong reports now from Washington, there does seem to be something of a digital iron curtain descending if the US shoe. Hallway, it also hits its own foot inside while we gadgets are innards from firms, like Intel, oracle and Western Digital but tech firms sensing the crossfire are trying to get out of the way and avoid partnering with companies subject to bands in retaliation says Linley Gwen app of the Linley group. I think that companies are trying to reduce their exposure to the band, and by fewer components from countries that could be affected the word decoupling is being whispered in the US and China that is each country may develop its own separate supply, chain, while we has long been on Washington's hitlist and is trying to make parts semiconductors in house. Business professor at ten Wong judge young university has a new book on wall way. He says the company can be self sufficient that can make it south. Maybe he's not as good as the US components, but it's not much worse. They still can't sell products so that prepare for these more than ten years, while ways, DIY project. Could accelerate Chinese innovation? And in areas like wireless, five G many see hallway as already ahead. So the US might not want to cut itself off says, political scientists Abraham Newman at Georgetown, France in the nineteen eighties tried to develop its own internet, and it was kind of ridiculous, and the risk is that we end up with a new version of that a lesser. They un-filed g network. He says the US is weaponising interdependence and could unravel a global tech supply chain that took a generation to come together. I'm Scott Tong for marketplace. You can argue till the cows come home about tariffs who wins who loses who pays wait. No, you can't consumers pay and nobody wins. But there is at least one agreed upon reality. When it comes to what tariffs due to an economy, the way things normally work don't work anymore. Marketplace's refinish your explains that one I don't know if you've ever grown plants in a terrarium they love it in there because they're protect. But when you take them, out and expose them to the outside world, they don't always do out there, not strong. It breeds a kind of laziness here Simon Lester is with the Cato Institute and he's not talking about terrariums. He's talking about tariffs tariffs that protect some US businesses from foreign competition. You don't have to compete with the best in the world, just sort of relax. You don't have to work that hard, you're not gonna face any competition. US steel companies, for example, don't face as much pressure to upgrade plants now they can in our raising prices without competition from foreign steel producers. Ultimately, I think if you want to sessile businesses, you want them competing in order to, you know me as a fishing has possible Chinese goods. Don't usually compete with US goods head on. We don't make a lot of the same stuff, but many goods that are made in America are made with Chinese parts tariffs. Make those parts more expensive Tim Keough teaches economics at the university of Minnesota gonna make things to the US shell the rest of the world. Be more expensive than we're gonna lose market share because of that. But the. Disadvantages go beyond that, take the tariffs on steel aluminum. The metal that would be going into the US now goes to global markets increasing supply and depressing prices outside the US Rufus York's is president of the national Foreign Trade Council. Many of my manufacturers say that this has a direct impact on their competitiveness. Not only because their costs go up, but actually their foreign competitors costs. Go down your says the morn industries protected the less productive, it's likely to become in New York. I'm Sabrina sure for marketplace. In higher education news on this Thursday, three much reviled letters. S A N, t the college board purveyor of the aforementioned exam is adding a new score to it math, reading, and writing the optional essay and now adversity as in the hurdles like neighborhood crime, and poverty, that students might have dealt with getting into college. It's yet another attempt by the college board to keep its core product, the SAT, relevant as the idea. Of who gets in wear gets more attention. Marketplace's Amy Scott has more on that when Scott vers, I'll was weighing student applications. This college admission season he had another tool to consider. He's dean of undergraduate admissions at the university of South Carolina, along with grades and essays and test scores and environmental context. Dashboard. Offer details like family and housing stability access to AP classes and neighborhood poverty, and crime. And that did help us find some students that we would probably would otherwise not considered the university was one of fifty testing out the dashboard. This year, the college board will roll it out to all schools next year, and it'll be free, but SAT critic Robert Shafer with fair test says it's a business move with selective colleges under pressure to admit more students of color and low income students. More of them are making standardized tests. Optional people have long known that head scores were a excellent. Mega of accumulated advantage. And now, the college board is going to admit it by thing. You can't use raw scores. You have to examine them in context. The college board has tried something like this, in the past in the late nineteen nineties, it's so-called strivers program aimed to take socioeconomic factors including race into account. But Shaffer says critics accused the college board of back door affirmative action, and the program was dropped Tiffany Jones directs higher, Ed policy at the education trust advocacy group. She says the dashboard doesn't include race without looking at race explicitly. It's very difficult to try to account for racial inequality. Students also won't know their scores adding another layer of mystery to the college admissions process. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace. There was a fairly brief, but all important announcement from Boeing today, a quick four paragraphs, the first sentence of which read Boeing has completed development of the updated software for the seven. Thirty seven max, which is big the company says it's working with the FAA to get the planes back in the air. Investors were reassured Boeing shares up two point three percent day. The broader markets up as well. Not as much though. We'll have the details when we do the numbers.

"I really did. But and honestly like when when Cato was empower I was like, Tom got all the good ideas in Cato's stifling him, and we need to let Tom be free and do his own ideas. Because he's really he knows what's going on in the house, and he's very strategic and now I'm like, oh, my God, we need Kato to control Tom TOMS. Like got all these crazy ideas that like aren't even that crazy. But he the way he goes about them are just just not good. And he doesn't really know how to be in an alliance very well and his own alliance members don't want him in anymore and they've turned on him. And I mean, it honestly it could turn around for him. We don't know what's going to happen. But right now, it's not looking good for Tom. Unfortunately. So gosh, I give them a seven last week. And. I feel like I don't know how far wanna drop him. But I feel like I wanna drop him pretty far. I gotta give him like probably a four. All right. Well, that's high to me because I personally feel like at this point Tom might be drawing dead. I feel like getting to the end is going to be a very tall order. Everybody is after him. Everybody's coming for him. He never really had very many solid allies himself most of his connections came through Kato. Now, those connections have been severed that he is in a lot of trouble. Not to mention the fact that some people are now mad at him. They're calling him crazy. They're calling him insecure. They're they're they don't really like him as a person it's hard to even see them voting for him. If he makes it to the maybe just the underdog status of him somehow getting there by winning all the competitions or whatever it takes to get him. There would give him the win. But I just feel like it's going to be such a difficult road. Personally. I gave Tom too. Man. Maybe mine's just wishful thinking, maybe I'm hopeful that maybe a movie next week..

"Go start by going to HP S dot me slash go. That's H B S dot ME slash co. To and. Yeah, I'm excited. Yes. We are here to update you on everything that happened yesterday on the live feeds for celebrity big brother two, and we got some before eviction stuff. And we've got some after eviction stuff to talk about fiends are down for because of the live show in the live veto and addiction. He's our offer big portion of the midday but stuff earlier in the day and then late late or early morning, depending on how you look at it. Yes. So here we go. Let's get into this this crazy. Not that crazy. Unfortunately. I mean depends on what your definition of craziest. That's crazy. There's some very disappointing. I was so I was in such disbelief that I had to tweet it out to make sure that this is really a thing that happened. So wait for that. Natalie in Lolo are going to be talking earlier in the day. This is before the vixen. Action. They have agreed to take out tame, mar if over Dina if Ryan or Joey end up winning the veto tame was going to be the person that if Joey ended up winning that veto in the episode or Ryan had been picked and won the veto. However, they do recognize that it seems like Cato wants DNA to stay because he's closer to Dina than they are DNA would come after them before she came after him or Tom. So they recognize that, but they're still willing to let Margot I. Yeah. I mean, that's a lose lose -tuation last night. Like, I'm still I'm still not quite a over it. I didn't wanna lose Ryan and getting rid of are would affect to. I mean, they're definitely acknowledging that that scene. A- is less good for their game than tame are. But it seems that they're still willing to to. I mean, cut fat from from the supposed girls alliance. That isn't even really an alliance just those two. But I mean, I was feeling like oh, man. I I definitely don't wanna lose Ryan. But I also don't lose. Mar this really is a lose lose situation. But I'll say this at least Ryan would've competed in the H company. We're not there yet. We're not there. A wait for them. So low low, and Tom Cato have a conversation. There was a whole mess happening where taymor at one point told the women that Dina was not gonna use the veto if she won and that she's in order to protect Ryan, and Joey she's not gonna use the veto. So that they can't be back doored and so low she goes and tells Tom and Kato and Cato's like what? No, no, that's not true. We need to go talk to Dina and make sure that that she does that. She does use the veto. And Tom is just like, well if she doesn't use the veto. We'll just voter out. It was like, no, no, no, no. He's like, well if she doesn't use the she is going to use the veto. Yeah. But if she doesn't use the veto nobody we're going to tell her to use the veto. And Tom Tom is like, well, no, no, no don't talk to her don't tell her letter decider own fate. She wants to not use to voter out. So they're talking about the day in the end talking to Dina, and they say, hey, we've heard that you might not use. She's like what why would I not use the veto? That's make any sense. Fill like, okay. Good. Good Dina's pissed. I can't believe that. She said a swear word. I don't remember what it was. But she was like, oh, okay. Could swore. She was she was very mad. I mean Dana is playing the game a little bit. She does at least have the three of us veto on yourself. And you know. Again, Dina's credit in this conversation. I just wanna work with you guys. Just like I want to be on your team. And like just the day before she was talking with Ryan and Joey like, hey, we get a pull in. We get a pulling candy, and she is she is in like she's floating like she is actively floating in this game, which is actually kind of working well too. So I don't don't close your eyes on on DNA here. She's prepared for DNA lo Han art, celebrity big brother to. In my opinion, one of the more likely scenarios right now. Yeah. So definitely start preparing. So..
