"clinton administration" Discussed on WCPT 820

"For the hour Stewart and Venice Florida, you are on the earth representative Khanna. Thank you. Thank you both for the great work and congressman. I do hope you do run for the Senate. With democracy on the fence, I hope this doesn't sound too trivial. But with all this talk about social security, I'm going to retire at CPA and I remembered in 83 social security was made partially taxable by the Reagan administration. And at the time, there was only for higher incomes, but it was never indexed for inflation. Then in the 90s, the Clinton administration actually made the taxation even higher and never changed the indexing. And now what I'm seeing is lower and middle income people are paying checks on social security. Relative focus on benefits. I'm wondering, is there any discussion at all about bringing an indexing this tax thing, which has not been indexed since 1983 when it was an active and it's now affecting low and middle income taxpayers quite extremely? And if I could jump in here, congressman, I got an email about four or 5 months ago from freedom works. Suggesting that the Republicans should champion the issue of ending income taxes on social security benefits. Which I thought was interesting. I'm curious to hear your thoughts on all this. Well, I'm going to build it. And income taxes on working class middle class folks on social security benefits and a start to that would be passing John Lawrence and social security act, which is introduced that has over 200 co sponsors. One of my big frustrations the last Congress is we did get it for a vote. They were both increased social security benefits. It would exempt some of the working class vlogs from social security taxes. It would fix the windfall exemption provision which does it allow teachers and firefighters to get all their social security benefits if they had a previous job. There were a few front liners who blocked the vote on this bill. I believe we have to pass this after a vote on its probably one of the biggest things that the president can run on in 2024.

Tucker Carlson: Mayor Pete 'Solved' Equity, Not Transportation

"Tucker Carlson had an epic monologue pretty brutal if your Pete Buttigieg about the state of affairs with today's transportation department. Now mayor Pete himself flies private so he didn't have a tactile firsthand experience with our crumbling airports or crowded stinking planes last refurbished during the Clinton administration. But he knew something more important, he knew that the FAA was beset by structural misogyny and transphobia. And to fix that, mayor Pete had the FAA announced that the aviation system called notice to airmen, that's the system that keeps pilots up to the end of their flights. That system would change immediately. Actually, the system itself wouldn't change. It would remain the same. But more important, the name would change. Going forward, it would be called notice to air missions. Missions, not met missions. See the massive improvement there. Now we're getting somewhere. So at the beginning of last year, mayor Pete declared victory. 2022, he said, would be the year that quote every transportation decision inherently is in many ways a decision about equity. In April of last year, mayor Pete noted that ensuring equity and accessibility for every member of the traveling public is one of the department's highest priorities. So he was on it and the equity crisis was solved. Unfortunately, our transportation problems were not solved. They had, in the meantime, become much worse. In fact, it reached a point. It is at a point that you might experience and say a trip across Bangladesh. Just ask anybody on the train that was headed from the northeast to Orlando, took 37 hours.

Why Is Biden Admin Deploying Air Marshals to the Border?

Why Is Biden Admin Deploying Air Marshals to the Border?

"The air marshal National Council fired off a letter to DHS secretary mayorkas, and picos and Stevenson reminding them that deploying these air Marshals to the southern border to perform humanitarian work is reckless and it's putting the nation at extreme risk. And I believe that not only is that happening, but just the pure porous border itself is putting the nation at risk. So we have a lot of different angles putting our country at risk, not only at risk of terrorists, attacking airplanes, but terrorists posing as Mexicans and coming in through the border as well as the fentanyl crisis that has just one thing that's what keeping in mind and you and I have talked about this before is that if you follow the trajectory of these attacks by and large the ground for them is paved by Democrat leadership or should I say lack of leadership. Even though the 9 11 attacks occurred under Bush, the ground for that was prepared under Clinton. Remember, the attacks on kobar towers, the attack on the USS Cole, the attack on U.S. embassies, Clinton administration does nothing. They even know what bin Laden is, but they don't go after him. And so bin Laden becomes emboldened. And then similar, so my point is that now that they have Biden there and they know that Biden doesn't care about any of this, his attention is elsewhere while his attention is such as it is. Well, I don't think he has much of it. There's not a whole lot of attention going on. I think he's one of those he's really Bernie weekends weekend at Bernie's because that's exactly what he looks like to the rest of us. I mean, it's gotten to a point where, you know, it used to be that we'd see these things we'd roll our eyes. We'd make fun of it, but they've become so routine. In other words, it is now expected that Biden says things that make no sense. He has sentences that don't conjoin one to the other. There's no logic there, and nobody even feels like they need to criticize it or explain it because it's just like this is Biden.

Patrick Knapp Looks Into the Abuses of the Church

"Final segment with my guest Patrick Knapp, the book is understanding religious abuse and recovery, the organization is becoming free dot org. Patrick, my producer Alvin just said to me that the Branch Davidians in Waco, that happened in April of 93. It is astonishing to think that it is almost 30 years. It really is mind-blowing to think that this is 30 years seems like ten minutes ago, but it's 30 years ago. It was the first days of the Clinton administration. I remember Janet Reno was part of what part of the horror of how that unfolded. Unfortunately, in any event, so in a remaining time, what are your, what would you like to talk about? And what should we touch on? Well, one of the things that Heidi and I are very passionate about is passing on to other people education about this topic. We certainly want to do the life coaching. That's our number one goal is to work with people on a one to one basis, helping them to process their religious abuse and their recovery. But we also really look forward to doing more educational kind of opportunities, whether for myself, one of the things that I would love to be doing is specifically to be able to teach a class at a college level or a graduate level, I've got a tentative syllabus. I would have put together and would love to have a 12 or 14 week period, be able to educate college students into a broader picture or broader understanding of what religious abuse and recovery might look like.

The Democratic Party Has Been Corrupted by China for Decades

"Just talking about the Chinese and how it seems obvious, James, that they had the goods on the Obama administration that they had leverage. And that our officials have been corrupted and that the evil communists in China were using that leverage. Yeah, some of the actions of the Obama administration and the Biden administration are hard to explain in any way. When you look at the trade deals that they negotiate it and how they benefited China and harm our nation, just across the board, militarily. And by the way, this goes back to the Clinton administration. Back during his time, there was a giant scandal many people forget it. It's called China gate in which a bunch of Chinese businesses and individuals were donating large sums of cash to the Democratic National Committee. And the worst in all this talk about the implications of something horrible. There was a company there is a company called Lara that was paying China, Chinese companies to launch their satellites into space, and what would happen is the Chinese rockets at the time were highly unreliable. So loral gave them the technology to make these rockets reliable. They diagnosed the problem and said, hey, fix this, this and this. And you're not going to be blowing up our satellites. Well, the problem is those same rockets use that same technology used to deliver satellites is also used to deliver into continental ballistic nuclear missiles. So what they did is effectively gave China a massive military edge, and they were under investigation. And Bill Clinton stepped in and basically killed the whole investigation after them around made a donation. I forget the exact amount. I think it was in excess of $600,000 to the Democratic National Committee.

"Cut ten. Here's more of what Stephen Miller said about the cognitive decline of Joe Biden and why it matters. I'm not sitting here just trying to take political pot shots at Democrats. That's not what we're saying. You have got to understand what the risk is here. Stephen Miller sure understands it. Of course, we can talk about Afghanistan, the greatest foreign policy humiliation in American history without even a close second, we can talk about the fact that this administration is now presiding over the first war in Europe since the Second World War, obviously you've had some conflicts, so I shouldn't say the first major war in Europe since the Second World War. There's obviously been some conflicts, but the first major war in Europe. And nothing like, for example, what happened in the Balkans or what happened in the Clinton administration, you're talking about something that could lead us to nuclear war. You're talking so that could lead us to World War II. So this could lead to nuclear war. Do you understand it?

"What do you make of these negotiations for crying out loud Well what I think is happening is they simply they want to end this They want to they want to take it off the table They wanted that from day one But it's something that is I think characteristic of what the Democrat party is become And at least our Democrat leaders they love giving clemency as sort of a pan to the left They did it with the weather underground people They did it with the FAL which engaged in something like a 146 bombings killing Americans cops they blinded to bomb squad comps They pulled up all these things They were all given clemency by the Clinton administration Even Carter let off the Puerto Rican nationalists who opened fire on the Senate you know shooting 5 senators one guy got shot in the chest He gave him clemency They've been sentenced to 75 years So I just think this is it's a weakening our country but when it comes to 9 11 that is beyond the pale Mark we lost 3000 people We sent our men young men and women to war 7000 people have died in the war on terror That's military Tens of thousands have been maimed loss of limbs undergone unbelievable hardships from their wounds We can't treat that as a nothing

Despite Biden Admin Not Recognizing Taiwan Indepdence, Pelosi Visits

"A very interesting story in today's New York Times. Thomas Friedman is the author of this opinion piece. And The New York Times very upset that Pelosi is going to Taiwan. I think just about everybody is, because no one quite understands why Pelosi is going to Taiwan. It marks the first time. That a high level government leader from this country has gone to Taiwan since I believe Newt Gingrich, back during the Clinton administration. So a long time ago, somewhat unprecedented, China threatening to blow Pelosi out of the sky. I don't think that's going to happen, but there's a lot of concern that this could spark some sort of an incident. So you've got that going on, you've got the the Biden administration, not very happy that Pelosi is going there as a matter of fact, The White House yesterday during this program actually said that the United States has absolutely zero interest in Taiwan declaring its independence from China. So at that point, I would have, if I was in charge of Taiwan, I would have just told Pelosi to do a UE and a head back home. You're not welcome here. But it just seems to me that the Biden administration is hellbent and maybe this is just me, but it seems to me they are hell bent on getting us involved in some sort of a shooting war with either Russia or China or Iran.

Remember the Elián González Saga?

"Just reminds I love it when there are all these strange political bedfellows. It goes back to ilian Gonzalez in the Clinton administration. Remember the little boy in a little Havana in Miami? His mother drowned bringing him into the country and the father in Cuba wanted the little boy back and Janet Reno's Justice Department broke down the door and they swiped the kid from the arms of the relatives and delivered the boy back to communist Cuba. Remember that? And I remember at the time I was at a conference with a bunch of talk show hosts and all the big mouths on the radio gathered, which is rough. That's not a place I'm not real comfortable because I believe me, I'm mindful that I'm one of those big mouths and no one knew what position to take because it was, I mean, it was Clinton and we don't want to be pro Clinton, but on the other hand, family values, the kids being returned to daddy back in Cuba. Yeah, but it's communist Cuba. It's Phil de Fidel Castro. No one knew what to do. Well, the same thing's happening here. He got Tom Friedman from The New York Times lashing out at Pelosi. You've got Tucker Carlson from Fox News, condemning Pelosi. You've got, I guess, Pelosi supporters loving what she's doing. And you've got the Biden administration letting her go.

Judge John Gleeson Discusses His Revealing New Book 'The Gotti Wars'

"I have with me here, a judge John gleeson, who has written a book called the Gotti wars taking down America's most notorious mobster and it was you, judge John gleason, you were the determined young prosecutor who in two of America's most celebrated trials managed to convict John Gotti. It is my honor to have you. Thank you. You're so nice to say that. Thanks for having me on your show, Eric. I appreciate it. Listen, as somebody, you know, I'm a sort of a sensitive soul. I never worked in law enforcement or in law. And so when I would hear these stories of organized crime, it's chilling. It's horrifying to me the brutality of that world. Absolutely horrifying. And of course, I was thrilled when the mob in New York began to be dismantled and never more thrilled than when John Gotti was got ten. I didn't know who was behind that. And now I'm sitting here with you. So, hey, here's a question. What took you so long not to get him to write the book? Because this is a little while ago. Yeah, great question. Look, those experiences are the kind of experiences anybody would be lucky to have. I knew I had to write them down. I knew it right after we convicted him in 1992. And originally, I thought, my daughters, one of them wasn't even born yet. Would need to know what their dad did and I was afraid I'd be too old or too dead to tell him. Or whacked out by the mob. Something like that. So I decided I was going to write it down for them. And then lifeguard on the way. You know, I went on the bench, I had those two kids to raise you. Wait a while. Yeah, prosecutor like this. Who put you on the bench? What's the story? I was put on the bench in the Clinton administration after ten years investigating and prosecuting. Well, you don't mean you were benched. You mean you were put on the bench as a judge. That's the judge. You see, I knew that. But I wanted you to say it. You became a judge, which is why today you're judge John. That's still call me, judge. Which is out of respect, not for me, but for the position I used to

"And this time around it doesn't seem like the rally effects been very strong. That seems like it's been counterbalanced by prominent conservative figures. And I think that if this had happened ten even ten years ago, certainly 15 or 20 years ago or during the Clinton administration, we would just not have seen this kind of dynamic. It would have been very much a coherent against this outrageous activity by our Russian competitors. Or the Russians who are rejecting fundamental aspects of the order that we all stand behind. I mean, that's the big transformation we're talking about. And as Alex talks about, it's a lot cheaper to destroy NATO by getting somebody like Trump elected. Than it is to try to destroy NATO by putting enough money in your defense budget that you can engage not just in coercive diplomacy against Ukraine, but against Poland and Germany. There was a statement list night from a bipartisan group of senators. I have not read it. It looked to me like it was only about a dozen senators, but there were several Republicans included on it. And one might wonder if this is potentially a Fisher among Republicans that good split Republicans. Yeah, I mean, the other element of this that's interesting, you know, one is sort of the values kind of dimension that we've talked about the last ten minutes. The other one is this kind of kiss and Jerry and triangular great power reasoning, right? That we need Russia in the campaign against China. And I've been struck actually by how many are deploying this argument in just, you know, in very kind of assertive ways, like for example, is that this session on Central Asia, a couple of months ago where quite a prominent transatlantic figure made the case that we should go to the Russians right now and offer our assistance in bouncing against Chinese influence in Central Asia. That was quite stunned. At the passion with which the argument was made..

"I'm that physically affected. And I don't feel nervous. I'm proud of the story. I feel like for so long the headline around my name has been what is wrong with her and what is she thinking? What did you want people to know? Well, number one, I wanted people to know what it's like to be an American Muslim. I think the average American does not know what sort of the basis, the basic principles, the creed, my faith, stands for. I think that it is the reason why I write in detail about witnessing starting in the Clinton administration and then beyond all of the ways in which my faith was turned into a convenient boogeyman for certain forces in this country and turn it into a negative light and the negative effect it's had on the Muslim community. So that was actually very important to me. I mean, throughout the book, I talk about my faith and what it means and what it stands for. And I think a lot of friends who practice other faiths read it and say, oh my God, I didn't realize that Moses was your prophet or you believe in Jesus or all of these connections because ultimately, as I write in that chapter, my college chapter, I spend so much of my young adult life trying to make connections with other people. Other races, other cultures, other languages. It's something that really fascinates me. So that was one. And then, you know, I suspect you were referring to my marriage. Now that I am on the other side, I can say with confidence, I don't think what I went through is all that singular. I'm sorry to say, I think what's different is that I had to go through it on the front page of the news. And so I know there is a sisterhood and brotherhood of people out there in the world that have had to endure betrayal and have had to figure out how to move on with their lives. And these are the conversations that I still am called into the people who stop me on the street and ask me a simple question. When does it stop hurting? Should I stay, when do I leave? Thank you. You know, even this, even what I had to endure is making a connection with people out there in the world. And so if my story and talking through how I got to the other side, might help somebody or maybe you take something for the story. Maybe you relate to something in the story. I think that might be a small service..

"So the democrats want to settle lawsuits filed by illegal aliens who are claiming that they were permanently emotionally traumatized by being separated at the border and the bite administration wants to settle with them. Instead of fighting in court. You will recall. What are the problems we have in. This country already are prior settlements from the nineteen nineties in the clinton administration with how the clinton administration favorably settled with illegal aliens in ways that have bound the federal government. That's essentially what the administration is trying to do. They're trying to use lawsuits filed by progressive activists on behalf of illegal aliens to bind the federal government to future positions without having to pass laws in congress. They're trying to essentially back door in legislation by never having to pass it but having the federal government settle a lawsuit so that in the future families can't be separated the border because we've already settled the lawsuit and i'm sure part of the wall street will be an agreement never separate the families of the future. Even though that could spark a crisis relating to human trafficking sh one reason the kids have been separated for. The parents is because we don't know that the parents are really the parents. This is going to come back to haunt the democrats if they do this now. Here's one of the calculations. Democrats have to make is it. Are they so far. Gone the polling that they might as well go on and do whatever they can because they knew they're gonna lose lock in what they can before they lose. That may happen after virginia. I mean i. I still think the odds are in a slight typical of wind. Because it's virginia. I'm starting to get optimistic today. Goes on and the numbers change. I go back and forth but if the democrats do badly in virginia you very well could see a situation where the democrats say. You know what we're going to get wiped out next year. Let us pass everything we can pass. And if we can't pass it let's use the executive branch to do what we can before the republicans come in and try to stop it and one of those things would be these sorts of settlements.

"Of COVID-19 resulted in the loss of 20 and a half million jobs, then fall 2021 is the dawn of their revenge. A record breaking 4.3 million Americans quit their jobs in August across an array of industries, according to a report released Tuesday by the bureau of labor statistics. That's the highest level since the agency started tracking such data in 2000. And the 6th consecutive month of sky high quitting rates. Meanwhile, the 7.7 million people who remain unemployed aren't for the most part, jumping at the roughly 10.4 million job openings, leaving business after business with help wanted placards in their windows. Those stats may seem puzzling. After months of economic and pandemic fueled uncertainty, things are finally looking up. Schools are reopening the vaccine is widely available, businesses are expanding and the economy is broadly resurgent. But labor experts say that rosy picture doesn't take into account the national mood. Americans say, are simply burned out. And emboldened by the current labor market. Employees don't want to return to backbreaking or boring, low wage jobs, Robert Reich, former U.S. secretary of labor in the Clinton administration tells time. Workers are burned out they're fed up, they're fried in the wake of so much hardship and illness and death during the past year, they're not going to take it anymore. Mark sandy, chief economist at moody's analytics, says that the conditions are good for workers to exert pressure on their employers. For at least two generations, workers have been on their back heels, he explains, we are now seeing a labor market that is tight and prospects are becoming increasingly clear that it's going to remain tight. It's now going to be a worker's market, and they're empowered. I think they are starting to flex their collective muscle. There's no single factor driving workforce behavior, economists add. It's more of a grab bag of diffuse burdens, wages aren't keeping up with surging prices, low wage jobs often lack opportunities for career growth, a crumbling child care industry is driving up day care costs, making work unaffordable..

Biden Responds to Kabul Airport Attack

"Short time ago. The president of the united states came out and spoke about the horrific bombing which happened today in kabul. We don't know of course the exact death toll at the moment. But it seems like they're already thirteen American servicemen killed and the president's speech. I thought was one of the more bizarre speeches. I've ever seen by a president and i'm saying this in the year. Twenty twenty one so i want to get quick reaction. I'm assuming everyone had the opportunity to review the president's ben. he's not since he is not capable. He is not competent. He came out. He looked like a mental patient. I mean he really did he he. He looked like he was barely awake. He stumbled his way through a bizarre seven or eight minutes speech. That contract itself about seven different times. He tried to rely very heavily on the. I'm empathetic joe. Routine the but the minute. That questions began all that went out the window. And he became combative joe He had nothing of merit to say. Yes no defense for his policies because this policy garbage and most of all if you're an american enemy watching the president of the united states on the same day that thirteen american soldiers are killed twelve marines. And you're watching. As the united states turns tail and runs leaving a thousand plus american citizens behind in kabul plus an unspecified number of thousands of american green card holders plus hundreds of thousands of people who will immediately be slaughtered by the taliban and as it turns out the united states government handed a list to the taliban of all the people we wanted to evacuate in the know precisely who to kill five just in kabul. They're americans all throughout the country. Weren't even talking. Yeah that's right if you're watching this as an enemy of the united states and then you watch this adult old feeble minded man walk out and barely make it through sentence. You're thinking you're like homer simpson with a hamburger right now. I'm bin laden said in ninety eight ninety nine after bombing kenya and tanzania the embassies there and after the mild response from a clinton administration said america's paper tiger. I don't know how if you're an enemy of the united states watching what has happened over the course of the last month. You can't look at the united states and say that is a nation. That can do anything i want to. This is a nation that is ripe for fall and this president is ready to let it

It's i don't understand how people can not see this as childish as it is with everything that's easy to look at. I'm not talking about some fringe website with claims on talking about cables from the state department cables or ricky leaks reports. They will clearly show you from the clinton administration and in plenty of other places they were adamantly involved with the creation of these groups and still to this day. Funding arming relocating. But who cares because fake news going forward the reopening of institutions including schools. That's interesting isn't it. As well as several dates of religious significance over the next few months could also provide increase targets of opportunity for violence though. There are currently no credible or imminent threats. Okay so okay. What about the opening of a new building next to my house. How about how about the opening of a new a new walmart right. Any of these things would y. Are they just picking these out. Because the idea of reopening schools is a politically contentious topic around cove. Nineteen so now. They're going to argue that. If anybody does anything in regards to stopping these from or you know the idea that this is an act that could center around the concept of covert nineteen religious significance opportunity for violence but no credible threats at all. So we're just throwing out random concepts of hype that we think be. This is not what this is how they keep people in fear foreign domestic threat actors to include intelligence services international groups and domestic violent extremist. Continue to introduce amplify and disseminate narratives online that promote violence and have called for violent acts against elected officials. So this is where you get into the reality where you've got people that say things about about politics. Politicians all the time like during trump's administration were half the democratic party recalling open threats to his family and donald trump but that was all okay back then because trump socks right. We all hate trump right receive. Obviously i think trump's and much of the problem is anybody else but you see the absurd double standard there and so what we're talking about now though is because oh my gosh.

We're losing lots of ships things that that have a an effect from these actions. And and that's where people unless you study that area. Don't understand and the chinese own america's economy anyway 'cause essentially with the american investment in the economy over there since the clinton administration welcome china into the world trade organization. They now have access to control of the american companies in china. You know the way things are. You're fired or we'll shut you down or we'll do something so does anybody who's sober about this. Have any confusion about what. The chinese aims are. It even goes deeper than that. Because their ability to target our ships and have accuracy and intercontinental ballistic. Missiles was giving to them. Our technologies was given to them during the clinton administration and and so the lease -ality of them what they can do. Besides economic side of it is really you know way ahead of what it should have been if things had not happened in that sequence and you know the future is pretty bleak Not only for afghanistan but really all the players in that whole pacific theater because the philippines has no army. Japan has a very limited military. It's a national defense force. South korea has to watch north korea. Who's left to fight us and we we have a fleet that probably cannot sustain more than a few days of combat in the pacific. That's unbelievable yeah. Japan has no navy As part of the world war agreement they have no navy disgusting but we do Stationed in japan. But that's not next door exact quite a ways time. Thank you so much.

So i was always looking for column ideas but it turned out to be Much more frightening experience than i expected. I start corresponding with jim. Hawks are the author of opium for the masses and getting horticultural advice. And does he have any seeds could share. And then i learned that he has been busted for possession of dried. Poppy heads he bought in a flora shop say bought legally he bought legally. But there's a funny little quirk. These drug laws were written. Which is if you know. You're growing a scheduled substance you're committing federal crime if you don't know and you think you're just growing flowers no problem but his book proved he had that state of knowledge and guess what my email was on his hard drive so suddenly. I'm in this very fearful paranoid place thinking. When are they going to bust me. You had grown flowers and therefore guilty before you're guilty. Essentially yes. I had the state of knowledge that condemn me is very much like the garden of eden. Right so i had this summer paranoia. I started doing reporting to figure out what what exactly was the. Da doing here and indeed back in ninety six. They had a campaign to stamp out domestic opium growing by gardeners. Like me. anyway. I complete this piece. It's this long piece. And i'm gradually learning how dangerous it is to commit a drug offense at this point in history. This is the clinton administration and post crimes involved. Mandatory minimum sentence and What i had done could result in a prison term of a million dollar fine and confiscation in my house under the drug laws if a piece of land is involved in the production of a drug whether the owner of that land is convicted or not that piece of land can be seized so there was a lot at stake. I finished the article. Realizing i'd already broken the law. By knowing what. I knew i went ahead and made the t- tried it. Described it in the text. And i submitted to harper's and i said look we gotta get this lawyer and initially they sent a criminal defense lawyer to read it. Yeah who tells you scrolled. Yeah who said forget it. You can't publish this. But when rick macarthur. The publisher of harper's heard that his lawyer had said not to publish it. He was outraged. So we hired first amendment lawyer. Who said you must publish. This article is exactly what the first amendment exists to protect. And i wasn't sure what to do at all there was a lot at stake and obviously it was my wife's decision to we had a four year old. We couldn't afford to lose this house or have me be in jail.

SEC Chair Gary Gensler Plans 'Woke' Corporate Disclosure Rules

"Charlie. I don't know that we've ever spoken. If we did. It was a long time ago. How are you? It's a huge honor and pleasure, Mark. We did speak. You had me out for a book I wrote back in 2000 and three when I was at Newsweek magazine believe. Oh, my God. Well, let me say this. It's a real pleasure. You're a real serious reporter and you do your work and You broke a story today that caught my ear. And I'd like you to explain who is Gary Gansler. And what is he doing? Gary Gensler is a longtime fixture on Wall Street, essentially the revolving door between Wall Street and Washington in the sort of he worked at Goldman Sachs. He worked in the Obama administration, and he worked at the end. I think he worked in the Clinton administration, so he's been going back and forth. He's pretty rich. She was a partner at Goldman Sachs. Now he's the head of Wall Street's top cop, the Securities and Exchange Commission. Um, and he's doing something really interesting now over the years. Gary Gensler has more from sort of a Clinton Democrat into, I guess the best way to put it as an Elizabeth Warren Democrat. He's extremely woke extremely progressive. And he has some extreme ideas of how he wants Corporate America to act. He wants corporate America to adopt extreme woke. Policies he wants. Essentially every company to environment embrace environmental standards. He wants every company to have quote unquote diverse boards and diverse workforces, and he he wants to use government as the lever to do that, and he's doing that right now. At the Securities Exchange Commission. Because the Security Exchange Commission has enormous power over corporate America. It basically can mandate what they do and how they do it, and it could do that through a lot of different levers enforcement actions. In this case, what he's doing is he's proposing rules. And those rules will be passed by the Securities Exchange Commission, which is majority Democrat now, so he's going to ram them through without any without any Republican voice, And these are rules that essentially forced companies. To be more woke in certain areas in in terms of environmental issues in terms of board diversity, they will have to disclose those that their diversity have what they're doing for the environment. And when they do that, obviously, it's going to be a an object where the mainstream media is going to weigh in and say, Look at this company. Company. X is not his woke his company wide. They're not doing as much here than not doing as much there. Uh And I guess the bottom line is this. Listen, you may believe in these policies if you're liberal, if you're a free market capitalist like me, I care about the bottom line, to be honest with you, But if you're a shareholder, you really should be caring about the bottom line. These are not bottom line issues, and they Feed the S E. C s mandate. If you read the mandate, which is to make the markets safe, poor investors to make sure companies disclose stuff that investors care about for too wet to to weigh whether they should Invest in the stock or not. I mean, this is politicizing companies and corporate disclosure to a level that we've never seen before, and he's doing it. He proposed these rules and they

Here we're known for the ducks and geese and the ball eagles right but there's a lot more out here that's part of this landscape. I really think that when things started to change arrest it was the narrative that happened. During the clinton administration. It was actually an act. By mr babbitt that left us with two biological opinions one for the salmon and one for the sucker fish that took more water than what was ever available in the project out of here and designated it for the fish and that was the two thousand and one water cut off. We made national news with bucket brigade in the fact that we had a head gates crew. That was trying to move water around the head gates. That were armed with us marshals. It was the first of many dark years for us this year. Is we're going to cross that threshold that that you're set for us and with an absolute disaster here across the board. The only water here right now is being pumped from wells. There is no surface water being delivered to agriculture. The wells that are being pumped. They're tapping into an aquifer that wasn't intended. This wasn't intended to be ground. Water project water. There was here the water where my house is used to be. Twenty five feet and that water that was on. This land is no longer here. Because they're pushing it down the river in storing it in upper klamath lake and not giving us access to it so people like to say well. You drained marshland. You took water out of a lake and you altered assist system number one number two the positives that came out of that benefit our entire nation from the refuges to the to the consumer at the store and number three when they di water ditches and take the water out of those. They're the ones that are hurting the four hundred thirty species of wildlife that live here in concert with us. And they're all doing it in the name of the essay to try to protect three species and that doesn't make sense disrupting communities disrupting wildlife there making clear losers here. And they're not benefiting the very species that they're trying to protect who do you complain to everything you've said here makes perfect common sense. Mike if seems like you should just go to whatever agency said. Hey this is this. And they're at least should be a conversation about it but it does not seem like in the past bit of history that that has been able to occur well it it occurs every day at many levels but it doesn't go very far you know i will say especially in terms of bureau reclamation who ultimately has control of this.

"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason

"The right amount of money to get americans through a few more months of the pandemic president biden is hoping that congress approves covid relief. Now that they're done with impeachment. A lot of the money would finance payments to americans. Fourteen hundred dollars for most people city states and schools would also get some money earlier this month. The white house economic adviser. Jared bernstein said people need it all. We have to hit back hard. We have to hit back strong. If we're going to finally put this dual crisis of the pandemic the economic pain that it is engendered behind us as you may have heard. The administration is asking congress in total for one point nine to really dollars. It politely turned down a call by some republican senators to spend less but economists still have questions about the price tag. So let's talk this through with npr chief. Economics correspondent scott. Horsely morning. good morning steve. Why would there be doubt about one point nine trillion. It is that price tag one of the most prominent critics is larry summers. Who was treasury secretary. In the clinton administration he was also an economic advisor to former president. Obama summers told. Npr's we edition. It is important for the government to go big but maybe he says not this big. If your bathtub isn't fall you turn the faucet on but that doesn't mean you turn it on as hard as you can and as long as you can. The question isn't whether we need bake stimulus. The question is whether we need the biggest stimulus in american history summers whereas spending this much money on short term relief would make it harder for the administration to the kind of long term investments. That it wants to and things like infrastructure. He's also worried that a rescue package. This big could overheat the economy and trigger something. We haven't seen in a long time. Steve inflation well. How worried if it all is the administration about inflation. The administration is a lot more worried about the people who've lost jobs in about the parents who can't work because their kids are in school The latest congressional forecasts predict. It will be twenty twenty four before we get back all the jobs that were lost last year and the administration says that's not good enough treasury secretary. Janet yellen told cnn. She thinks the us could be back full employment next year. If congress passes the president's rescue plan and keep in mind Yellen used to be the chair of the federal reserve where inflation was a big part of her responsibility. I've spent many years studying inflation and worrying about inflation. And i can tell you. We have the tools to deal with that risk if it materializes but we face a huge issue comic challenge here and tremendous suffering in the country. We've got to address that. That's the biggest risk. Let's ask about the reassurance. She offers there when she says we have the tools to deal with the risk of inflation. What she mean traditionally when the economy overheats and that causes a jump in prices. The fed tries to cool things off by raising interest rates and for decades. The fed was really aggressive about that sometimes. Raising rates preemptively. Just in case prices might go up but now the central bank has really changed. Its thinking about that. In recent years we saw unemployment can go a lot lower than many people expect without overheating and triggering inflation and that was really good for a lot of people especially those at the bottom of the income ladder so the current fed chair. Jerome powell says he's just not to worry about inflation even though he says we could see some temporary price hikes later this year if the economy reopened is there's quite a lot of savings on people's balance sheet you can see strong spending growth and there could be some upward pressure on prices. My expectation would be that that that will be neither large nor sustained for a long time. Now inflation has been lower than the federal reserve would like it to be and the central bank says it will only raise interest rates once we get back to full employment and inflation has been running above two percent for a while scott. Thanks for the insights. Really appreciate it. You're very welcome.

Come, Do you favor outline if you can, what you know about his executive order so far and only give commentary on that from the New York Post. President Joe Biden on Wednesday signed three executive orders, as he said about overturned several key directives of his predecessor, Donald Trump. His first hours working from the Oval Office, a tired sounding Biden 78 signed orders, rejoining the Paris climate accord, promoting racial equity and health care and other areas and requiring anti cove in 19 masks be worn in federal buildings and mine have been expected to sign up to 17 executive orders right away. Most of them overturning directives of his predecessor, Donald Trump, is saying in the Oval Office that additional orders would come over the next several days to a week. I thought there's no time to wait get to work immediately survive next to high stack of executive orders. There's no time to start like today.

"In the Clinton administration in the nineties. No ceremony is not only Francophone is also a sympathetic person. He knows how to listen. And he's not arrogant is respectful in Europe. We appreciate that, and he knows it. Trump's America first policies, saw the U. S abandoned international treaties and take a harsh tone with its traditional allies in Europe to hold a leader under normal. In a recent interview on French television, Blanken lamented the U. S abdicating its leadership role in the world without us, it's the law of the jungle, he said. And if China takes our place than it will be their rules that define the 21st century, Lincoln's belief in American moral leadership was shaped by his family. His father and uncle were diplomats. His Polish born stepfather was a child survivor of the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. Lincoln spoke of the late Samuel Peas are when he accepted his nomination in November. At the end of the war. He made a break from a death march into the woods in Bavaria. From his hiding place. He heard a deep rumbling sound. It was a tank. Instead of the Iron Cross he saw painted on its side, a five pointed white star. He ran to the tank. Hatch opened. African American G. I looked down at He got down on his knees and said the only three words that he knew in the in English that his mother taught him before the war. God bless America. That's what America represents to the world, said Blinken. Robert Malley, who heads the International Crisis Group was a friend and schoolmate of Lincoln's during the 19 seventies, when they both attended the echo Johnny in manual in Paris.

"If there is can is there something where they This is too outrageous If somebody decided to call up CNN and said, Hey, listen, Caitlin Collins or Jim Acosta over there. Donald Trump is really despondent and wandering around the West Wing in his underpants. Eating, eating conduct bars nonstop is really sad. He's really said that would be reported. You know that they would go well, we're getting reports waiting. Insiders have told us that the president of the United States is sitting there, covered in conduct melted conduct bars. Because that's who these people are. What's his face? Jim Acosta. Tweeted a photograph of somebody carrying a bust of Abraham Lincoln out of the White House yesterday. And there's somebody was removing a bust of Lincoln and Michael Beschloss, the Vaunted. Historian is somehow a very serious person, Michael Beschloss. He is out there saying this better not be a part of the White House permanent collection. Is somebody stealing this? I hope so. They're accusing the president of stealing and presidents. Of staff of stealing things from the White House when the reality is something barely innocuous that one would think a historian especially a highly paid TV commentator, historian from NBC News. Would know. That when an administration ends things leave the White House. Things in the White House in general are on display. It's not like the trumps moved in with all of their stuff, and they redecorated the White House. They have their personal stuff up on the The residents. But the official offices and even the official part of the White House are apportioned, as they say by the Nagra Smithsonian Museum. There are things on loan from the permanent collection of the Smithsonian. They are chosen by the administration. Usually the first lady. They have a whole bunch of things. Whatever it is paintings, sculptures, whatever it is, If it's in the Smithsonian's collection, which is massive ever been to the Smithsonian, That's just a tiny fraction of what they have. But if you've been there, they say, Oh, I like that. That would look really good in the East room That would look really good in this or that or the other thing. And so since the White House is the seat of government, those things are given to the White House on loan. When that administration ends. Those things are returned, so those things have to be removed. From the White House and placed back in the Smithsonian's permanent permanent can so that the next administration can go through which they are currently doing. Going through catalogs and would like to have that and we should have that in there. So on and so forth. It's perfectly normal. But because of Trump Derangement syndrome, these people are going nuts going overseas, knows somebody's looting the White House. Meanwhile, if you remember the Clinton administration, they actually did loot the White House, the Clinton administration and their staff because the fish rots from the head. Removed furniture. Lots of the Clintons took actual furniture, not little knickknacks and sculptures and, well, let's have souvenirs. No, they took furniture. That belonged to the American people. There was some reporting on it at the time it was chalked up to Oh, jeez. Honest mistake. There's no honest mistake when you're living in the White House, and you see a couple of chairs sitting there in an end table. You think those are nice? Uh, Let's just take him. That's not an honest mistake. You know if you moved in with chairs and an end table Clinton stole from the White House, and it was a big kind of yawn. They didn't return most of the stuff by the way, because so much of it was stolen. They didn't know who took what Because once the Clinton started taking things, everybody's like, well, it's game on. That stuff was lost forever. Probably end up on eBay someday. But probably not, actually because Democrats no matter how corrupt they are, are never wanting for jobs. They always have cover. But they're accusing the Trump administration. Is it better not be stealing that bust of Abraham Lincoln? What proof do you have that that's what's happening relative to the Smithsonian coming and moving things that we don't have any proof. I'm just saying. Yeah, they're terrible people on their always 99% of the time guilty of what they're accusing the other side of doing. Robin Frederick, welcome to the program. Hello. I just got a thing to talk about, Uh, Idea. Yeah, On Haven't idea on defunding the Democrats. Um Everyone should claim 10 dependents through the year. And put the money in escrow and wait till the end of the year to pay their taxes and this won't affect Medicaid and it won't affect Social Security, however. The government's not doing their jobs and we keep paying them. So this is a way to stop paying them. And it was 75 million people that voted for Trump do this. They're out of money, and they're already hurt by at least 20% of our revenue because of Cove it well, there's send a heck of a message. They on the printing presses the rob and being out of money hasn't stopped them from spending $7 trillion last year, So I understand, But if this would be definitely a way of letting me know we're tired of them not doing their jobs and still getting a paycheck every week or better yet. Institute legislation that gives people one month with zero with holdings. Let people say what they're earning relative to what they get to keep and then let Democrats try and push through their tax hikes and they're spending bill. I don't think they're going to be able to survive for too long when all the states And all in the federal government have no money coming in. Well, the federal government can survive. And Joe Biden is proposing sending a ton of money to the states. Try and bail it out. Slowly. It Z 10 Gallons air coming into the boat, and we're bailing out five gallons..
