Cramer calls on U.S. to build factories to address chip shortage, unemployment
"As the pandemic gradually draws to a close. We've still got to national emergencies that we had to talk about a man money. A horrendously high unemployment rate and the semiconductor shorts is causing major problems for us manufacturing and competitiveness. We need more chips and we need more jobs so why. Kill two birds with one stone. It's time for our government to invest in building the biggest and best complex of semiconductor foundries. That's the factories in the world. And we can do this now. This kind of initiative went out of style decades ago but we know it works because the government just did it with operation warp speed the co vaccine program that got us to trick vaccines in less than a year. Were on a roll. Let's keep it. I don't need to explain. Employments national emergency but what south with the massive government back semiconductor foundry pro. Okay we just heard from general motors. They have all these new indian vehicles but they simply can't make them because they're sending books shortage and modern cars require a lot of tech ford said the same thing could cost them one to two billion this year bleed. You're gonna start hearing about this shortage. Constantly dan we the us really havoc with all sorts of industries and making us less competitive and perhaps even hostage country hostage to a bigger chip customer. The pr see. We got to get ahead of this. Now some of this shortages natural thanks to cova. We've got millions of new homes. That require a lot. Har- we're eating these chips like doritos at halftime. But some of you thanks to globalization are sitting been able to outsource their manufacturing most couple of huge asian operators taiwan's semi which is now the biggest samsung. These are both incredible mazing. Well run companies but they also get so production capacity that they have they hit the entire world including demand from china that hits american companies extra hard because new of our businesses run on just in time ordering. They don't want to sit in a lot of extra components it just by the chips when they need them. That's a quick way to make money save money until it's a shortage. Now that's where we find ourselves. Our companies can't get enough chips because there's not enough. Production were wide and that lack of chips is hurting all sorts of manufacturing including the formation. Gm and ford now. There are two ways to approaches. We can throw up our hands and baked samsung taiwan semi to build more plants. That's been our strategy or anywhere for that matter or we can roll up our sleeves. Like operation warp speed. Remember today when everyone get tested raw. Got javert here can roll up our sleeves and get this job done ourselves. If we're supposed to be the most powerful country in we'd be able to manufacture semiconductors for heaven's sake it's our industry so let me tell you what needs to happen. You might not know it. But america's best tech industry the most intellectual property that is anywhere in tech is in the semiconductor capital equipment space. That's lam research. Kelly tinker applied materials. They had machines that we need to make chips meaning while building gigantic simtek foundries can put more people to work and just about any other research project much more than a much than highway than a bridge. Why stop at roads and bridges and we re establish yourself as a whole new kingpin in manufacturing industry that used to dominate. And hey biden's pick for commerce secretary gina raimondo. She was a venture. Capitals governor of rhode island. I got into politics. She'd be the perfect champion for this project. We can take advantage of low interest rates to issue fifty year semiconductor savings bonds to raise the money for this project partner up with the private sector then. These businesses can pay back. uncle sam. Production gets rolling or chips. Defense ships all sorts of internet of things. Chips should be able to make this stuff domestically in the best in the world. Honestly it's insane. We outsource our semiconductor manufacturing to taiwan south korea. When they're within spitting distance of our biggest wattle china. I love taiwan. I love south korea but we ever get into a shooting war with the chinese. For heaven's sake they'll be right in the middle of it. Hopefully it never comes to that but why would even taking that chance. How much would this cost. We know semi spending up to twenty billion to boost its output. And they're very good at what they do. Let's say let's let's borrow one hundred billion dollars in savings bonds to make the us more semiconductor independent over the next few years but we have to start immediately to alleviate the shortage people intensive national imperative blueprint ready customer for the suppliers. Ready to help so soon. To be secretary raimondo. You've been on the show. Let's get the loan just chip ongoing going and put an end to this chip.

P s chief Washington lobbyist Jim Tobin. The lumber issue is is in the Commerce Department. She's very strong and workforce development. Having somebody inside the Cabinet room who knows about the successes of the building industry can have when they partnered with government on job training for our industry. I think she's a fantastic pick. However, the HB is less enthusiastic. About the president's choice for Labor Secretary Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and the HP CEO Jerry Howard, fears that Walsh may advocate more strongly for unionization of residential construction workers. It's going to be a very difficult fight for us, and I think it's something that we need to really think very, very carefully about going forward Howard and Tobin both spoken and any HB produced podcast. Real estate professionals are comparing notes with political scientists to try to figure out the new landscape, new migration patterns, maybe forcing some re definitions.

No AAPI Cabinet Secretary!? (With Madalene Mielke)
"Madly milk. Welcome back to the motto. Majority podcast today. Thanks so much. Appreciate having a having having you have me. Yeah absolutely well. We love our previous conversation back in episode. One one to talking about your career your life story from the very beginning you know your political career dating back to al gore's presidential campaign. I believe so. I encourage everybody to listen to episode one until after this episode to get to know your personal story a little bit better but today we are going to focus on. You know some current topics. Niger say before we get into that. You are the president and ceo of the organization. Asian pacific american institute for congressional studies or apec. Could you give us a quick overview of the mission and the goal of this organization. You're leading which. I think actually is a good background and foundation for other stuff. We're gonna talk about later on in this interview. Well absolutely so apex down at twenty. Six years ago by former secretary norm annetta when he was a member of congress. He founded it alongside on the congressional asian pacific american caucus k. pack which comprise of the api members of the us house and senate and so apex mission is to increase a representation at all levels of government From community service to elected office and have them participate at all levels of the electoral process. Gotcha so it's interesting that you mention norman. Mineta who i think is one of the first cabinet secretaries of asia-american designed in our country. I don't know the first night check on that. The first right okay. So yeah. I think he was transportation secretary. He was actually commerce. Secretary and president clinton's administration got it and then went to transportation under the bush administration. Gotcha gotcha he has this. Unique history of serving the first cabinet secretary serving both administrations both parties administrations. And really i think started in important. I guess trend of representation that is about to end with the incoming biden administration. And we're talking about as we are a few days before job and becomes president to be inaugurated. This will be the first time in close more than twenty years that they will not be in asia. American or pacific islander as a cabinet secretary in an administration whether it's democrat or republican for the first time. And you as the leader of a pack which is a nonprofit has spoken out quite a bit about a lack of representation. Could you share with us. What is your view of what is about to happen with this. Lack of representation in the incoming administration sure dodge. Obviously we have an incoming vice president. Who is a pi asian american. She south asian descent black vice president-elect kamla harris and also to cabinet level positions. They don't head up an executive department of which there are fifteen. And that's catherine tie. Vr and near attendant. You know the to cabinet. Level positions obviously have a lot of influence and i will just use the word sides the congressional hispanic caucus and the congressional black caucus as well as k. Pack when they sent a joint letter over a hundred and fifteen members of congress to the by the administration saying close to equal equal. And so that is that those were their words and so And so you know. I cabinet secretary heads of an executive department. And there's only fifteen of them and so when you think about that fifteen how's that diversity including asian americans. It doesn't because there isn't one of the fifteen a. I applaud the administration for their work in trying to expand diversity in having openly. Lgbtq individual leading agency And native american woman of half of the cabinet will be women so all those great things. So if you wanted to find diversity and not include asians in the fifteen than i need to ask you. What is your definition of diversity. Because we seem we've seen this play out and other places where the state of washington. I think they're department of education. Basically categorized asian americans as white so obviously a different definition of diversity.

"However, if you were to look through the documents, the internal emails and memos released as part of these lawsuits that more than two dozen states and cities. Those other groups have filed around the country forcing the trophy station to release documents to justify their decision to add this question, if you look at those documents one term that keeps on coming up is apportionment, and this is the process in which the census numbers. The population counts are used to determine how many congressional seats each day gets after each senses. And there were questions asked within the Trump administration specifically by commerce secretary will be Ross who oversees the census bureau has authority over the senses as delegated by congress secretary Ross was asking whether or not undocumented immigrants were included in census numbers specifically for apportionment. And so this was certainly a theme, and as well as there were another interesting Email from former Kansas secretary of state, Chris co Bach who was a former vice chair of President Trump's now defunct commission on voter fraud crisco Bach. He had emailed in conversations with commerce secretary Wilbur Ross. They were connected by former. White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and co bucks suggested an Email a citizenship question wording for one that went further and actually included responses to collect not just citizenship status information of a person, but also their immigration status and crisco back raised in this Email concerns that on documented immigrants are included in apportionment numbers that he felt that that was a problem. So how I mean, we'll we'll talk in more detail throughout the rest of the show about sort of what's at stake here on either side of whether or not this question ends up on the census. But but Honey, how did it get to the supreme court so quickly? And what does it signal to you that the justices agreed to hear this case? Everything is sped up because there are very tight deadlines. The twenty twenty cents is is less than a euro way. It officially starts in January twenty twenty in remote, Alaska and took bail ASCA usually starts in the most rural parts of. Aska and then officially rose out to most households construct participating around mid March of next year. So the time is ticking away and by July. That's when the census bureau says it has to start printing paper forms for the twenty twenty senses and a needs to know by July by July. First sent speier says whether or not citizenship question will be on the census or not. And as I've said three federal judges have issued rulings blocking the addition of a citizenship question. And after that first ruling by judge in New York. The Trump administration started the it's appeal and appeal to to the appellate court to the circuit court level, and then made the unusual move to after making that move to appeal to the supreme court and acid supreme court to essentially bypass the circuit court level and not wait for circuit court to review the New York judge's ruling and to step in. And that's what the supreme court is is doing right now stepping in before the circuit court, the second US circuit court of appeals for the New York courts has ruled anything and is going to. View the New York judge's ruling as well as consider this question of whether or not adding this question was constitutional. And that's a question that judges in California and Maryland have since ruled that they believe it's unconstitutional. Well, Hansie Louis Wong national correspondent for NPR with us from Washington stand by for just a second Honsi because I want to welcome into the conversation myth in months, and Honey, he's the solicitor general for the state of Oklahoma and helped filed an exile an amicus brief in support of the department of commerce and the citizenship question in the case, it's going to appear before the supreme court tomorrow, and he joins us from Oklahoma City within months and Honey welcome to on point.

"This billionaire named people teeter so called billionaire is in a a lot of hot water right now with his company, and it just seems like there's this kind of devil-may-care attitude among some of the men who surround themselves. Let's talk about one of those men commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, and Scott Pruitt gone Ross is arguably the most scandal prone cabinet member left, but his scandals have been a lot less hilarious and more complicated than Scott Pruitt's cylinder. I'm going to count on you to make this interesting. And concise as possible. The main scandal seems to be that we learned three leak of offshore banking records that Wilbur Ross continued well into his tenure as commerce, secretary to own steaks and a variety of global businesses that were directly affected by the policies. He was making. He owned a stake in navigator holdings, which is a Russian shipping company linked to allies of Latimer Putin. And then there are other assets that he technically doesn't own any more, but they're in a trust that benefits is relative. So you know, he's still retains an economic interest in them. That includes a major manufacturer of auto parts that's going to be heavily impacted by the decisions that Trump makes about auto and auto-parts tariffs which will be recommended by Wilbur Ross. Linda, I feel like when when Ross was confirmed didn't didn't. He make this big show about how he was divest his financial assets that he can do his job without exactly these sorts of conflicts that we've now learned has. It was a love fest. There were democratic senators who are, you know, congratulating him on being so open and honest. And I think that one of the actual scandals that got lost this week was at two days ago, broths set. Pulled a a lawsuit from one of his ex partners and that he settled because a judge was about to rule that he might have to produce documents about his the financial documents that he handed to the Senate. He did not include this lawsuit in his in his disclosures to the US government. So there's something about his issues with this partner. This nine million dollar lawsuit that was settled for an undisclosed amount that really made Ross nervous. He did not want to appear in court. He did not want to have those documents Cepeda and we know that he's a liar. He has been lying about his wealth to Forbes magazine for as long as there's been a billionaire list. We figured that out when people were like, hey, you said you're only about where two hundred and fifty million dollars in these documents to the government. Are you lying to the government and or Forbes magazine? And he said, whoops, I'm lying to Forbes. He has this amazing Mr. Magoo. Of exp-, you know, being like, oh, it was who was just just silly little mistake or then using financial vocabulary to explain things in a confusing way. So that people think you know, oh, that sound that sounds right. I guess I don't know. And, and frankly, all it is is is a way to confuse an office gate. I also like to add that one time we'll be Ross burp and my face during a conversation. He did not stopping excuse himself. He did not pause. He just went acted like it didn't happen. Well, now it's time for tweet to the week. Sometimes it only takes one hundred forty characters or maybe two hundred and eighty two. Still the spirit of the week, Liz brunette. What's your tweet of the week? Okay. This Rudy Giuliani, he goes, there is a moron on FOX claiming I chain smoke cigarettes worrying about the president's tweets. I don't smoke cigarettes hate me smoke only premium cigars. And I hope this idiot is not a lawyer because if he is he should sue his loss. Cool. He's off that. Can you talk that. I'm going to rich Lowry, poetry, and your top that I'm gonna go with the bench appear. Oh, aforementioned Akhazia Cortez dispute over debate challenge Shapiro challenged her to debate socialism. She reject this challenge and compared it to cat calling and bench. Pirro tweeted back cat calling must mean something very different in queens. Yikes. What's your tweet of the week? My tweeted the week as from Elon Musk, considering taking tesla Platt private at four, twenty share funding secured well two days later, and it doesn't seem like Ilan has funding secured by anyone. It would be the largest leverage buyout in history at about one hundred billion dollars, and it's unclear who has that kind of firepower..
