"Have a chance because there is not alignment with government agencies, but when there's alignment like this, it's not good. And once again, Bitcoin is fine. I hold Bitcoin and all that. So this is why I diversify, but Ethereum, if Ethereum is meant or is set to be a security, what do you think is going to happen to you to other altcoins? So we need ripple to win this lawsuit, guys. And that I think will be the saving grace here for the rest of the altcoins. Now, regarding the FTX, rossum benham, he testified before Congress today talking about this FTX debacle. And some statements came out from there where he said the FTX direct clearing plan was nowhere close to being approved. And he talked about the need for regulations and all that. So it's pretty much the same old talking points that we've been hearing over the past three weeks and we're probably going to hear more of it as there's more congressional hearings about this, but we'll see what type of regulations they come up with. Hopefully it's not heavy handed or draconian and hopefully it's well balanced so that innovation is not killed and pushed overseas and moves away from the United States. Now speaking of FTX, surprisingly, Mike novogratz and I know many folks don't do not like Mike novogratz. He was interviewed by CNBC and I was surprised by the statements he made. He said it was delusional talking about Sam bankman freed's interviews. Let's be clear, Sam was delusional about what happened and his culpability in it. He needs to be prosecuted. He will spend time in jail and it wasn't just Sam. You don't pull this off with one person. Very strong statements coming from Mike novogratz here and look, I'm in agreement. These people need to be prosecuted. They committed a crime. They committed fraud. I don't care which conference you go speak at and whatever you do the crime, you got to pay the time. Now, I want to just talk about the SEC lawsuit here or SEC ripple lawsuit, excuse me, where James gave file an attorney James cape filing. He tweeted out the timing of the potential Bill hinman documents being released. He says, I have some thoughts on timing regarding the regarding the hinman documents.

Eased not the one that they're going to be able to relate to. He's not the one who needs to move the fight forward. I have never met the speaker, so I or the potential future speaker. But someone I trust here in the state of Iowa, what did meet him on the campaign trail not long ago? And he said, my impression is, he's only out for himself. And that's the vibe I think that we all feel. Now, if that could also coincide with what's best for the party and the nation, fine, but it seems like his number one job Todd has been how do I get to be speaker because I got edged out of it the last time. And it's sort of like, all right, when he gets the job, what's he going to do with it? It's like the dog chasing TJ's car once the dog catches the car. What are you going to do with it?

As long as they don't have any underlying conditions, they remain relatively healthy. They will be allowed to do that to isolate at home. If Beijing does that, you could because it's the capital because it is the political center of China. You could start seeing cities around the country beginning to adopt a similar policy. That would be a drastic change in the way that COVID zero is executed here in China. John says allowing the quarantine at home signals Beijing is ready to allow for a little more spread.

Elizabeth Warren: Anti-Elon Musk and Anti-Free Speech

"Listen to what Elizabeth Warren a powerful U.S. senator from Massachusetts said about Elon Musk yesterday in the halls of Congress. Republicans say that Democrats are picking on Elon Musk. Elon Musk is doing just fine. But do you think that users have a right to freedom of speech, even if what they're saying is wrong or offensive? I think that one human being should not decide how millions of people communicate with each other. One human being should not be able to go into a dark room by himself and decide, oh, that person gets heard from that person doesn't. That's not how it should work. Wait a minute. One person, Elon Musk, who owns Twitter, who believes that you should be able to say what you want to say on Twitter, that's not how it should work. That's literally what she said. In other words, you don't have freedom of speech. In the Democrats version of America. You don't get to say how you feel about things. You meet you need to be deplatformed and censured and now it leaves to the embarrassment of a former Twitter executive, Twitter's ex safety chief, a guy named Joel Roth was interviewed at something called the knight foundation conference and he admitted finally that Twitter was wrong in censuring the New York Post's Hunter Biden laptop scandal.

And the legislation passed easily on a bipartisan 80 to 15 vote. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer had warned lawmakers they needed to get the vote done, especially since many companies were likely to plan ahead before next week's strike deadline. Suppliers and businesses across the nation are going to begin shutting down operations soon if they think a strike is imminent. Before the final vote, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders urged passage of a separate bill that would have provided rail workers with 7 days of paid sick time. Workers who do difficult and dangerous work have zero paid sick days. That bill failed. But the overall legislation has now passed the full Congress and heads to President Biden's desk for his signature. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO P news. President Biden's proposal to cancel student loans, which has been the target of legal challenges is still in limbo. But the Supreme Court says it will hear arguments in the case. This winter, and that means it's likely to determine the legality of those cancellations by late June. The White House had sought a court order that would have allowed the program to take effect even during the challenges, but as a fallback, it suggested the high court hold arguments and decide the issue. Mister Biden's plan promises $10,000 in federal student loan forgiveness to those with incomes of less than a 125 grand. President Biden has been meeting with French president Emmanuel Macron today.

It's the first time since the 1990s that Congress has stepped in to intervene in a national rail labor dispute. President Biden and French president Macron say they are on the same page on most issues from Ukraine to climate change, but they agree more discussion is needed to assure that America's new subsidies for industry do not hurt European economies. President Biden said he's confident Macron's concerns can be addressed. There's tweaks that we can make that can make it easier for European countries to participate and or be on their own. And we're going to continue to create manufacturing jobs in the America, but not at the expense of Europe.

House votes to avert rail strike, impose deal on unions

"Congress is attempting to head off a national rail strike. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. Members from both parties are pushing for it. Michelle fischbach, Republican of Minnesota. Our country's economy can't handle a strike that reports would say would cost $2 billion a day. Democrat Jim mcgovern of Massachusetts. Commuter rails that carry tens of thousands of people to work each day would no longer run. There will be shortages of nearly every kind of food in our grocery stores. The result, the a's are two 90, the nays are one 37, the joint resolution is passed. The bill would bind rail companies and workers to a deal brokered by the Biden administration in September, but voted down by four of the 12 unions involved, representing roughly 115,000 employees. The unions have threatened to strike if an agreement can't be reached before a December 9th deadline. Democrats aligned with labor have criticized Biden's move to intervene and House speaker Nancy Pelosi responded by adding a second vote, adding 7 days per year of paid sick leave for rail workers, a key issue. That measure passed by a much narrower margin two 21 to two O 7 with Republicans overwhelmingly opposed. It now goes to the Senate and White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre says a bill averting a rail strike needs to reach his death by this weekend. As for that second Bill, he does not support any bill or amendment that will delay getting this bill to his desk by this Saturday. Ben Thomas, Washington.

Steve Cortes: The American People Know We're in a Recession

"Is in a really tough spot. I believe that they played some games with the fed over the summer and early fall to cushion the blow ahead of the midterms. I think that everyone knows that we're in a recession, but I think there was some games also done, obviously with the strategic petroleum reserve to try to get gas prices a little more manageable because Steve, this midterm election should have been much more focused on the economy than it was, right? I mean, it shouldn't be a four seat majority. It should be a 40 seat majority given the economic catastrophe we're living through. Yes. And by the way, to that point of whether or not we're in a recession, according to CNN polling, not exactly a right wing organization. 75% of the American people say that we are in a recession right now. So the American people know this. People on Main Street regular folks know that we are in a recession. You know, whatever academic debates, the corporate media and The White House want to engage in the American people know where we are. They know where things are in their own lives. They know that real wages, meaning your income adjusted for the things you need to buy in your life, real wages have declined for 19 consecutive months. That is the worst streak in all of American history. You are working harder to get poorer every single month. And the American people clearly know that. To your point about the fed, look, the Federal Reserve is every bit as complicit in creating this inflationary madness as is Joe Biden and the Congress, you know, particularly Schumer and Pelosi. All of them share in the blame here. Now the fed I will at least say this to its credit. It seems to have found religion, but very conveniently largely after the midterm elections. So for example, just this past weekend, the president of the St. Louis fed bullard made some very aggressive comments about how much the fed needs to raise interest rates to try to rein in this inflationary madness that the fed fed chief themselves helped to create. Now, he's very late, but better late than never. And I think the fed finally has come to grips with the crisis that they help to create. And

Respect for Marriage Act Destroys Key Constitutional Provisions

"Many Americans, millions of Americans. Are too stupid to look into what is going on. What Congress is passing, what it means to the constitution to your rights as granted to you by our founding fathers. Actually, as granted to us by God, our rights come from God that they were, they were codified. They were noted, they were written. They were documented by our founding fathers. And the respect for marriage act absolutely inappropriately and inaccurately named. Is going to tear apart the First Amendment to the constitution of the United States quite literally on two of the 5 provisions protections in the First Amendment. What are the protections of the First Amendment, the very first one, of course, is freedom of religion. Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion. Nor prohibit the free exercise thereof. It's the first protection in the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights which leads the constitution. It protects our freedom of religion, it protects our freedom of speech, it protects our freedom of the press, it protects our right to petition the government for the redress of grievances, it protects our right to assemble in whatever capacity we need to presumably peacefully, 5 provisions and at least two of them are completely torn asunder by the passage of the inappropriately named respect for marriage act.

DeSantis Hits Apple for Threatening to Drop Twitter From App Store

"Yesterday on this program, I invade against Apple, threatening to remove Twitter from the App Store. And I'm glad to set the stage. I'm glad to lead the way, but when the hammer came down, it was Ron DeSantis yesterday hitting in the afternoon in a speech, apple for threatening to remove Twitter, cut number 19, the governor of Florida. And then as you've seen that go on in China, you know, there's reports that Apple is not allowing the protesters to use this AirDrop function where they're trying to communicate. That obviously is providing aid and comfort to the CCP. And so you see that report and that's very concerning. And then when you also hear reports that Apple is threatening to remove Twitter from the App Store because Elon Musk is actually opening it up for free speech and is restoring a lot of accounts that were unfairly and illegitimately suspended for putting out accurate information about COVID. That's like one of the main things that's being reinstated. So many things these experts were wrong at and you had people on Twitter that were calling that out and Twitter, the old regime and Twitter, their response was to try to just suffocate the dissent. And in the Elon Musk knows that's not a winning formula. And so he's providing free speech. And so if Apple responds to that by nuking them from the App Store, I think that that would be a huge, huge mistake, and it would be a really raw exercise of monopolistic power that I think would merit a response from the United States Congress. And so don't be a vassal of the CCP on one hand and then use your corporate power in the United States on the other to suffocate Americans and try to suppress their right to express themselves. And so I'm glad I'm glad things are changing at Twitter. And I know there's a lot of work to do with big tech generally, but this is big progress. And we're really happy that that is now happening.

Well, especially that we have a new comprehensive medical study that says there's no difference that the mask essentially do not work and the fact that you still see people driving around in their cars by themselves wearing them. I was talking with a friend from China last night. And one of the things that's fueling the riots and the chaos and the absolutely meltdown in China right now is that the Chinese people don't get news media that allows them to know what's really going on in the world. But they're watching the World Cup and they're seeing, you know, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people going to these games and nobody's wearing a mask while their government is beating them down, locking them in apartment buildings, killing people over masks and a COVID shutdown and they're watching the rest of the world is going to soccer games without wearing a mask. They see the disparate treatment that is being played out. And that's one of the things that's fueling the anger in China.

'Respect for Marriage Act' Is About Punishing the Church

"There is a piece of legislation called the respect for marriage act, but it really has nothing to do with that at all. The fact of the matter is, gay marriage is the law of the land. All right, the Supreme Court already decided that the Supreme Court decided they were going to redefine what God had already defined, and that is that. But now, but now the Congress and the Congress is being motivated here by radical, radical LGBT activist. And I want to preface everything I'm about to share with you with this. Not every gay person in America supports the respect for marriage act. Not every lesbian supports this, not every you can go down the alphabet list. So we're talking about a small radicalized group of people. Because this is not about protecting same sex marriage. This is not about protecting interracial marriage. This is about punishing the church. That's what this is all about here folks. And it is a very, very dangerous thing that happened yesterday. Senator Mike Lee of Utah was one of three senators Marco Rubio and James lankford the other two who offered amendments that would have specifically protected religious liberty. Because when you, when you go to the, when you go to the people who created this piece of legislation, they're saying, oh, no, no, no, no, no, no. This has nothing to do with the church. This has nothing to do with you, small business owner, if you're a Christian, we're not going to, we're not going to target you, it's just assumed that you're going to be protected in this. Well, that's not good because assumptions don't work under the law.

Democrats are expected to make Hakeem Jeffries the first black American to lead a major political party in Congress. He would replace Nancy Pelosi as top house Democrat as the party ushers in a new generation of leadership, Pelosi and her top lieutenants are all in their mid 80s. The 52 year old Jefferies, 59 year old Catherine Clark and Pete Aguilar, who is 43, would become the new top trio, as Democrats show rare unity for a party that lost the midterms.

He said that they are threatening to take Twitter off the App Store and you couple that together with what we saw out of The White House spokesperson this week. And it might make it a little bit nervous because she reiterated a couple of times that they are looking at Twitter because Kareem Jean Pierre said that we'd be watching them very closely in light of the fears about misinformation false information and Elon Musk has been pretty upfront about this. I mean, he was like, you got to be kidding me. Why is the media totally against the idea of free speech? Why do they have to control the narrative? They seem to be very threatened by the likes of somebody like him. And now desantis, whose vying for his spot in 2024 is getting into the picture because now saying that if this in fact is the case, it is something that should merit quote a response from the U.S. Congress. We don't know entirely what Apple is saying about this, but it's concerning enough, only because, again, we saw it happen with other apps like parler. And I think it has happened with gab and some of these, I mean, I don't even know if they were ever even allowed on the platform on the App Store. And that's of some concern, understandably, because, hey, that App Store is kind of important, right? I mean, if you ask me, this is really an antitrust issue, because why is there only really two big app stores, right? One for Android phones, one for Apple phones, out there, and if you're not on these actual platforms as a company, then you don't entirely exist. And that's limiting our free market enterprise that we are.

There's a lot to do, including resolving the train strike. A potentially crippling freight rail strike next week. It's not an easy call, but I think we have to do it. The economy is at risk. The president is also where Jay legislation to avoid a government shutdown next month and pushing for it to include more funding for the COVID-19 response and Ukraine. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

What Happened to the Unified GOP in the Midterms?

"When we think back to when we were in power, when Trump was president, sure, there were some never trumpers, but for the most part, we all unified behind Trump. And when I think back to the State of the Union speeches, Trump gave, I can't think of a time when the Republican narrative was more clear. And the Democrats, while clearly opposed, you remember Nancy Pelosi physically ripping up Trump's speech, our whole side was quite unified. But ever since the midterm results of 2022, this unity has slowly disappeared. Some of it started in 2020 and maybe even more in 2021, but after November 8th, 2022, very quickly, conversations began about what went wrong and why, and people immediately started pointing fingers. There was a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on as they say. I know many of you have likely seen the infighting taking place. And it's very disturbing. Some say the midterms were great and maybe it wasn't a red wave, but hey, we control Congress. This group has a very positive outlook on how things went. And the party's recent expansion into the black and Hispanic vote were unheard of years ago. In fact, despite ballot shenanigans by the Democrat party, the GOP won the popular vote in the midterms by 6 points. Others say the midterms were far from a red wave. We were expecting a bloodbath, blowout election, where we'd control the House and the Senate, many thought this would happen because Biden seemed so obviously bad. With his policies so obviously harming Americans with record high inflation and people feeling it at the gas pump. But alas, we missed the mark. We overestimated our wins. We counted our chickens before they hatched maybe. Others say we've could have gotten far more seats, but we didn't because of various reasons, whether it was candidate quality or it was lack of fundraising or mismanagement of funds. As McConnell backed Murkowski instead of shabaka and left Blake masters out to dry. There are many reasons why people feel this election did not turn out the way we had hoped. But nevertheless, the point is, they are disappointed, and we are not unified.

Senate set to vote on bill protecting same-sex marriages

"The Senate is set to vote on a bill to protect same sex marriages, I'm Lisa dwyer. The Senate is set to vote today on legislation to protect same sex and interracial marriages, putting Congress one step closer to ensuring that such unions are enshrined in federal law. Senate Democrats are moving quickly to pass the bill while they still hold the majority in both chambers, the house still has to vote on the legislation and send it to president Joe Biden's desk. The passage for respect for marriage act would force states to recognize all marriages that were legal where they were performed. It would also protect interracial marriages by requiring states to recognize legal marriages regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin, the vote on final passage is scheduled for this afternoon, I'm Lisa dwyer

"If you just looked at which party is leading in those uncalled races right now. So if that is the outcome, Kevin McCarthy is going to have a very, very narrow majority, which is a twofold problem because first, he will need to scramble to secure 218 votes of those two 21 if that's what it ends up being to actually become speaker. And then the second problem is, if he is speaker, that he's going to have to govern with such a narrow majority, and that means that every individual member of the conference is its own power center. When you're dealing with that narrow of a majority, just a handful of House members from your own party can choose to buck leadership and exact demands. And so that's first going to happen from McCarthy in his battle for the speakership, and then if he gets there, it's going to happen to him as he attempts to govern. Speaking to demands, listen to what congressman Matt Gaetz Republican of Florida said on his rumble channel on Wednesday night. With such a slim majority, we shouldn't be starting the C team. We need to put our star players in a position to shine brightest so that we can attract more people to our policies and ideas. Here's how McCarthy addressed the topic on Fox News last night. Look, I'm not concerned. Think about this. Since I've been leader for the last four years, we've only gained seats. We want to have a very open input process. We're going to have a smaller majority. So we're going to find that we work together. And here's McCarthy trying to put his best spin on a far less robust victory than he expected. What was our mission to win the majority to stop Biden's agenda and fire Nancy Pelosi? All of that is accomplished. They don't give gavels out by small, medium and large. They just give you the gavel. And we're going to be able to govern. That's it for today's political briefing. Thanks so much for listening. You can count on CNN to bring you the absolute latest on where these key races stand, go to CNN dot com or listen to the 5 things podcast for updates.

"Is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Friday, November 11th. It's not February 2nd, but it does feel like groundhog's day. That's because we are still waiting on Arizona and Nevada to learn which party will control the United States Senate. Here's the basic math, folks. If Arizona and Nevada, when all is said and done in the races are projected, split, meaning the democratic candidate wins one, the Republican candidate wins the other, well then they will not help us know which party controls the United States Senate because it'll all come down to the December 6th runoff in Georgia. However, if either the Democrats or the Republicans win both of those western states in Nevada and Arizona, then the outcome of Georgia will be irrelevant to which party controls the United States Senate. So that's the moment we find ourselves in. With these two sort of hanging western states when it comes to the Senate contests. And because Georgia very well may be determinative with the results of the December 6th runoff, you can imagine that not just the candidates themselves and their campaigns Warnock and walker. But the national parties are beginning to descend upon Georgia to prepare for that potential eventuality. Give a listen to Rafael Warnock, the democratic incumbent senator and his Republican challenger Herschel Walker in Georgia yesterday. So I'm going to need you to stick with me for four more weeks. Can't we do that? He hung around or got into this runoff. And he thinking he's going to win. We need to prove him wrong and let him get out of that office. As for those races out west, let's start in Arizona, and where we are at the time of this recording about three 40 p.m. eastern on Friday. In that Senate race between the democratic incumbent Mark Kelly and the Republican challenger Blake masters, we see that Kelly has maintained about a 114,000 vote lead, which is where he is right now over masters in that race. That is significant, however, our estimate is that some 540,000 votes are still outstanding in Arizona. So still haven't been counted that we think are out there. And that's just an estimate. And the majority of those 350,000 of them we believe are in Maricopa County, the state's largest county, the most populous county, where Phoenix is located. And just to drill down a little further, of all that outstanding vote in Maricopa County, 200 and 90,000 of it. So the vast majority of the outstanding vote in this critical county are these 290,000 ballots that are same day drop off ballots, meaning people voted their mail ballot and on election day went to a voting center and dropped off their ballot. Now, we have not seen the results or any tabulation of that kind of vote yet. So earlier today on CNN, we heard from the Maricopa County board of supervisors Bill Gates, who explained that in the vote batch we will get tonight from Maricopa. Roughly half just about a majority of it will be from that bucket of 290,000 same day drop off ballots, which means we're going to get our very first insight and hint about how those ballots are splitting between the candidates and that may that information may put this race in possible realm of being projected. As for the governor's race in Arizona, between Democrat Katie Hobbs and Republican Carrie Lake, that is a much closer affair. Hobbes, the Democrat is in the lead, but does not have as sizable elite as does mark Kelly in the Senate race. And Carrie Lake, as you know, is a 2020 election denier. And she's now starting to sort of lay the groundwork for calling into question the results in this race, even though there is zero suggestion or zero evidence of any significant or relevant fraud in this race. Here's what Carrie Lake told Charlie Kirk on his conservative right-wing talk show on Thursday. Quote, they don't want to put out the truth, which is that we won. Well, I mean, that's just false. We don't know who won that race yet. And I can assure you that elections officials in Arizona only want to put out the truth, which means they want to finish tabulating the votes and reporting these vote totals accurately. Here's what Carrie Lake said on newsmax on Thursday night. The dragon their feet and their slow rolling the results and they're trying to delay the inevitable. I have very little faith in some of the people that are operating that that Maricopa County elections. I think they're incompetent. It takes time to count all these ballots. Just like I was talking about those same day drop off ballots. Maricopa County has seen a 70% increase in that kind of voting. Same day drop off from what they had seen before. Chairman of the Maricopa County board of supervisors, Bill Gates, on CNN on Thursday, responding to those comments by Carrie Lake. It's really sad to hear that we have the Republican nominee of governor for governor here in Arizona, who's talking like that. All the people here in Maricopa County elections. They're working 14 to 18 hour days every day. And I understand that Kerry Lake wants us to move quickly and a lot of people do, but you know what's more important is that this is done accurately. As for Nevada, CNN's current estimate is that there are fewer than a 100,000 votes left to count. In Nevada, the critical race we're watching there is that Senate race between the democratic incumbent, Catherine Cortez masto, and Republican challenger Adam laxalt. Adam laxalt is currently ahead by a little less than 9000 votes in this race at this time. About half of the remaining ballots are from the state's largest county, Clark county, that includes Las Vegas. Clark county official Joe Gloria said there will be updates later tonight from Clark county. Now it's important to note that Nevada allows mail in ballots to be received through Saturday as long as they were postmarked by election day. Though we believe the male that is trickling in now this late in the game are very few votes at this point. Here's what Clark county official Joe Gloria said at a press conference earlier today. We would continuously trying to educate voters in that. We're not purposely holding this process back. We're doing everything in our power to move ballots forward just as quickly as we can. But the statutory deadlines that we have in place, I can't do finish all the mail until it all comes in, but I can't finish until Saturday, even if I wanted to. Meanwhile, in the battle for control of the United States House of Representatives, we are inching closer to that 218 mark and Republicans are in the lead. So in our called races right now, 211 seats have been called for Republicans, a 199 seats have been called for Democrats. So Republicans are just 7 seats away from the majority. There are 25 uncalled house races. And here is the reality folks. It is far more likely that the Republicans are going to be the majority party in the House. They are much closer in the called races and I think even if you were to look at which party is currently leading in the uncalled races if the vote were to basically stop now and it ended the way it looks right now on the leaderboard in these uncalled races, you would have a Republican majority totaling at about 221 seats.

"I think we're hopefully we're getting there, but it won't matter if we don't take back the house. Well, yeah, and I think that's an interesting point you make there now. And look, I'm going to bring it up because I think it's an honest discussion. You mentioned cohesiveness. And here's one of the things that we've talked about. I've talked about it on a podcast. I've talked about it on radio and I'm talking about an interview is that and we've mentioned it this morning is, again, we've got to understand that the policy is what we've got to focus on. At the end of the day, it's about a policy. Democrats are the best they have been the best in the 8 years that they've had it since 92. 8 years, basically, of knowing, okay, we've got to get two 16, two 17 two 18, depending on how many is in the house. We'll give two or three passes, but the rest of you, you don't have a pass. You got to suck it up. This is the best we're getting and go. You saw it firsthand. I saw it firsthand in those long caucus meetings where on healthcare we ended up negotiating against ourselves. Good lot of immigration bills. That immigration. I mean, guys, I mean, what is it going to take for Republicans across the spectrum who's going to be my hope and your hope is that they and I'm helping candidates all over the country is, you know, we get two, 25, two, 35, two, 40, whatever the number is. I think here's the difference. There's too many cogs within caucuses. And that's just not slight against the freedom caucus. I know those guys. I liked it. I agreed with them, probably more than I did. The leadership. But I didn't go in there to represent that. I went there to get this stuff done. And that's what we did, and you know that as well as I do in our and it's in my book. I mean, it's been on the healthcare bill. How both factions, you had the northeast squishes that we want along amendment before we pass healthcare bill and all that stuff. And then he got to freedom carcass in many cases. They were just afraid of a primary. So Trump was mistook between those factions. You and I were stuck between those factions. The goal isn't to go there and say, I represent the Tuesday group, and the mainstream Republicans, or I represent the freedom of God, the goal is to work with everybody and get all the good stuff done. And at the end of the day, move the ball forward, and that's what that's what we were up against, and that's what Republicans are up against and Democrats don't see. Now, maybe they do, but they don't seem to have as big a problem there as yeah, we've got to get back to an understanding that at the end of the day, giving a speech and getting a million locks on Twitter is not as effective as actually getting something passed. And I don't think that's a part. Well, I say that as a guy that voted against reauthorizing fisa. So I would say a fire breathing talk radio host. But I realized that healthcare bill was a good piece of legislation. I talked about it on the radio before I got to Congress, but B was the best we were going to get. Exactly. And we were undercut by the other chamber in that case, and I think some of it out of spite of over Trump. What it was, and I think, you know, look, please remember folks, you're listening to this podcast. You know, Republicans, it was killed in the Senate. The bill itself wasn't killed. This is what always frustrates the legal people saying, you just couldn't pass your healthcare bill. No, what was done in the Senate was, is it just basically a skinny pack and just said, okay, we're going to pass this and go to conference, where we could have actually done the bill. McCain killed a conference for somebody who was so lauded as being the person to work bipartisan working committees. He killed process. He didn't kill a bill, which in turn killed it. Frustrates me to know him. I wrote an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal saying that I think that as much as anything people forget in 2018, healthcare was a huge issue. Huge. And by defeating that Bill, we got all of the downside of proposing the bill, but none of the upside of passing it and seeing the good stuff, right? So I wrote an op-ed in the journal about how I think McCain's thumbs down really hurt our chances in the midterm. The Washington Post, just what you said, oh, Louis doesn't know what he's talking about. There was the skinny Bill he was voting. That wasn't the point. It was a point to get something to conference. Yep, that was it. You know, it's really frustrating because, as I say, our own worst enemy sometimes. And we got to get over that and move the ball down the field. Like you say, but these consultants, they're leading the charge. Well, one of the things, Jason, and I'm our refused to name the name to keep that person anonymous. They're still, they're still in Congress. But I'll never forget in 2018 of those fights. And I was in rules committee as well that I mean, I've been there for in the morning and we'd have people come in and you got to put this amendment and you got to put this amendment in. And I remember one of these amendments, I'll leave it as amorphous as I possibly can. It was dealing with the risk pools, those kind of things. And we couldn't get past these votes. If we didn't get this in, so we had to rework everything. And one of the main one of the proponents, I'll just say a proponent, there was many of them. But one of the proponents said, you got to do this or I can't vote for it. Well, we got it in the bill. We got it out of the house. Later in that 2018 cycle, you're exactly right. That was a huge issue in many of our race. And one of the reasons, frankly, we lost because we had members who couldn't explain. And I remember this member calling leadership and saying, why are they attacking me for doing this in describing the and leadership said, you were the one that wanted the amendment. Right. I mean, it's just, again, sometimes it's for play and not for work. And we got to get over that. And I think that's one of the tax Reform Act was such a big deal. Because at the end of the day, we did, we got most of what we wanted, and it was at a 100% no, but we got something that actually worked. No, that's exactly right. And repatriated over a $1 trillion in foreign profits. Tax revenue is way, way up. The biggest beneficiaries are the lower bottom, not that that's a reason to do it, but that's a fact. Had I in my way, I would have eliminated Kerry interest as a capital gain and taxes ordinary income, which I think it really is. But we got salt deduction, limited so that we're not giving a subsidy to high-tech states. All of which proved that rising tide work. And that's why none of us got Nick, at least I did in the second district in Minnesota on the economy in 2018..

"And by that, I mean, what are you going to alienate really if you advocate for term limits? And I happen to be in favor of them, but I agree with you that I'm in favor of them for everybody. But who are you going to alienate? Nobody. Wearing a Ukrainian flag lapel pin. They really going to alienate nobody. If you're talking about a tax cut, we believe in tax cuts, but it's about as safe a political position as you can get. But if you start talking about we really shouldn't have a biological male swimming against my daughter's swim team in college. We really shouldn't have lawlessness in the streets, although they are talking about that. But we ought to close the borders. Or how about this? We get to the point right now with China. We're not too many generations ago of you unleashed a bioweapon on the world. That would have been considered an act of war. We don't want to talk about that stuff or globalism or private equity, our endless wars. All of that, because you really get people get upset. The Human Rights Campaign really gets upset. I don't want to go there. That's too hot. Don't want to talk about climate. Don't want to talk about elections. You don't want to know about. So what this changed? Not much. Nothing. And I think that look, it's gotten even some bad with Kamala Harris. I mean, this is really an interesting point. Kamala Harris was asked by chuck Todd in a recent interview. And she made her standard pitch about the border being the most secure border. And even chuck Todd had to call. Well, and that came on the follow-up of Biden and Harris and the administration saying, well, the reason the NAP test scores for fourth graders hit a rock bottom low, he's become Trump mismanaged schools during COVID two and a half years ago. No. What? And this is the point though, Doug, and this is why you got outraised why I got outraised. They have a Democrat media complex. They have money and media. And they can gaslight the country over and over again by repeating the lie. And that is effective. I hate to say it. Well, it is and I also have the, you know, look, and I'm one of those conservatives. I think a lot like you. Look, we'll pull out the fact of the liberalism and the media agenda that is driven. But also it's one of those things where I'm also seeing that comfortable conservatism which you've talked about. I'm seeing conservatives use it as a crutch. Right. And they just sit it out and they won't push back. We've got to push back and there's ways to do that. Because look, they're revisionist history. You're not talking about this. I made that example this morning when we talk on the radio, was about this big drought in the West Coast. And we talk about climbing, if you don't believe in this cloud, huge drought, it's been going on for about Frank has been off about 15 years now. But there were several articles, and I think I don't want to say we're afraid it was one of the larger publications said, it's the most, it's the worst drought in 1200 years. Okay. I'm slow, but I get math, even if I had to take my hands and my shoes off, I could figure this out. That's 800 AD. So. There's an AD. The combustion engine is people. It's cows. It's whatever. I mean, they just undercut their own argument and they don't even understand that they're undercutting their own argument. But who's going to point it out other than Doug Collins? I mean, that's the issue, isn't it? I mean, that's what gaslighting is. As you keep telling people, the sky is green when it's blue and pretty soon, enough people say, well, I'm not going to go there. It's green. And that's why they called it climate deniers. Then we went to vax mandate deniers. Now we're COVID deniers. Now we're at election deniers. At some point, this self censorship has got to stop and you're getting nothing done. I mean, the Democrats aren't consumed with being too radical. They don't mind it. And yet Republicans, I can guarantee you know this. It wasn't that long ago where the top Republican consultants were all members of The Lincoln Project. That's what those guys were. That's his advising Republicans not to talk about climate change, not to go out to go about this radical trans ideology, not to talk about China, not to talk about the board. I mean, so I do think, and look, I mean, I was never going to be in danger of becoming a career politician. The voters thought of that. But I'm glad I stuck to my guns and didn't apologize for what I believed and got some good things done because I couldn't live with myself otherwise. What's the point of it all?.

Today we've got a great episode with us and I get to sit down with the old friend. Jason Lewis from up in Minnesota, former member of Congress that I got to know in just watching. If you've ever folks and you do this, if you ever just list, if you're listening to the podcast, you're watching it today. There are certain people who can take complicated things and explain them very well. And do so in a way that, and frankly, sometimes with a bite, that basically could offend everybody in the room, but everybody ends feeling like, hey, that was pretty good. Jason Lewis is one of those guys that can do that. Who the heck are you talking about? It can't be me. Yeah, Benson is with me today. Well, and thanks for being a part of the podcast. It's amazing to have you with me. Well, it's good to see you again. You are a real leader in the 115 when I was in D.C. as vice chair and it was a very, very good two years, the time of accomplishment we'll talk about that. But if there were ever a time when we need communicators like yourself, it's now because we're a nation on the brink of, right? Oh, very much so. And very much so. And I think that's one of the things that there's a two year and I won't call it an oasis, but there was two years, and you talk about the one 15th Congress. Was a time in which the Democrats were not happy. I mean, Trump had won the election. They were not happy, but they were still this idea. They were not sure if they were going to be able to flip the house. They still were in that mode 8 years. They were chafing under Pelosi a little bit. Hoyer and arrest. And you still had some who wanted to do a few things. And I remember a bipartisan stuff that I did criminal justice, which was actual real criminal just from not what we're seeing out there in these liberals. The first step act, you had music modernization where we redid how songwriters and stuff get played. We did a lot of protections. And then we as Republicans finally stepped up and did the tax bill, which was set up anybody should be our economy should be far better than where it's at right now under Biden. But then we also did have the healthcare issue. And I think that was one that we can talk about as we go, but it was a time. It's really the last time Washington got anything done. Now liberals will tell us Jason, you know, the Biden administration has been an legislative juggernaut. You know, it's like, yeah, if you count partisan wins, don't you think that would be true? Well, look, as we've spoken before, these guys will put their pedal to the metal, and they know that they'd rather change the country than just change the Congress. So while Republicans are looking to polls and being afraid to say this or that, when we should be dominating this election cycle, Democrats keep passing bills, they keep basically doing these things that's going to make this a country in a state of Georgia that your parents wouldn't recognize. And that's what their modus operandi spent. Now, I do think there was that window. I worked with Democrats on regional government reform on Oregon donation. You worked with them on criminal justice and all the rest. And then all of a sudden, there was almost like a doctor Jekyll and mister Hyde. I think they became so deranged with president Trump that they basically jumped the shark. And now we're seeing a party who's the squad is controlling, not the old centrist Democrats like Scoob! Jackson or you can go back to Dan rostenkowski for that matter. So it is a different world, but I do think that when you look at that window, the first two years of Trump, like the first two years of Reagan, we got more done over a thousand bills. It wasn't just tax reform, almost did healthcare reform. Were it not for somebody going south and the other chamber at the last minute, but we got VA reform. We did more deregulation, congressional review authorizations and any Congress in history.

"You mentioned that this was a U.S. Congress doing the investigation here. That seems not normal, right? We're used to. No. We're used to teams being investigated within the NFL or even in the world of sports, remind us why Congress is involved here. Well, first of all, the NFL did their own investigation of Washington's workplace culture. That concluded last summer on July 1st, they announced a $10 million fine in that owner dance Snyder would be stepping away from day to day duties. Well, we move ahead to October and then emails that were part of that investigation came out and that was about what Jon Gruden had said in some of those emails which eventually cost him his job with the Las Vegas Raiders as the head coach. And with this, there were a lot of the women who were interviewed as part of the initial investigation, wanted this report to be released publicly, but as people probably well know, there was no written report. It was a verbal report given from attorney Beth Wilkinson to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. But the women, again, wanted this released publicly so at that point, Congress starts to get involved to investigate why wasn't it released publicly? What was going on? What are the other documents say if this, if they have these emails implicating John Gruden saying what consider racist and misogynistic comments, what else was in there that they have? So they wanted to get the documents from the NFL and the team. And then, you know, a lot of members of Congress got involved for different reasons, what they hope to get out of this, I should say, some wanted to, you know, you want to work, they wanted to look into workplace culture. Could this lead to legislation about how workplace culture or workplaces should be conducted, et cetera. So that's what started all of this. Members of Congress have said every time they speak to a witness, they learn something new, meaning they may be bringing in these women or other employees to discuss the allegations of a toxic workplace environment, but in the end it has the masking questions about other things. As it stands, the result is that they initially were investigating this toxic workplace culture and now they have in speaking to employees happen upon this story of financial impropriety. So let's start with who is bringing these allegations of financial wrongdoing to light. It's Jason Friedman, and he worked for the organization for 24 years, 8 months. He started when Jack can cook on the team and he continued to after Dan Snyder was bought the team in 1999 and he was fired in October 2020 by new team president Jason Wright, who had taken over two months earlier. And Jason Friedman was a senior executive in the ticket sales office and he had tattoos commemorating the team on him. So he was a longtime die hard employee of this franchise. So Friedman met with members of the U.S. House oversight committee as part of that initial investigation into the workplace culture. But he adds new allegations to the mix about the team's finances. Now given his title and his long tenure with the franchise, it seems reasonable that he would know what was going on with the team's books, right? Yes, and I think what they would say is to a point because the one thing that the team spelled out in its rebuttal was, he did not work in the accounting or finance department. So while he knew what was going on in the ticket side, he wasn't always privy to meetings and discussions that were being held on the other side. And it's important to note that he was based at their stadium, which is in land over Maryland and in the letter, they said that the financing and accounting offices were at their Ashburn Virginia facility. So he wasn't always over there. So that's why it's safe and their eyes, he was only privy to stuff to a point, but yes, he would have certain a lot of knowledge about what was going on with the tickets because that was his domain. Yeah, vice president of sales and customer service tells the committee that there were multiple financial proprieties. Can you sort of give us the details on those? Yeah, well, let's start with the security deposits. And in there, he alleged that they made it hard for customers to get their refunds that they created extra hurdles that the customer may have to go through to get refunds on security deposits placed in the seats. Now, I think it was around 99, it was shortly after Snyder to go whether they stopped charging those security deposits on like club level seats, et cetera. So it really only talking a few years where people put down those deposits. And what would happen is, unless the customer requested it, he said that they would not return it. If the tickets were handed down from family member to family member, perhaps the family member who now has a ticket didn't know that a refund was perhaps supposed to be coming if they were done with their tickets. Or if it was a work account, perhaps the name on there, the.

"In their support of the notion that their fellow colleagues in Congress on Capitol Hill should not have the right to buy and sell individual stocks. Why don't think members of Congress should be directly involved in trading? I think you should have to turn it over as I have when I got into Congress to a third party and not be able to give any direction on the buying and selling. The flip side to that coin is that there has been bipartisanship in the violations that have taken place of a law known as the stock act, the stop trading on congressional knowledge act of 2012. Lawmakers from both parties bought and sold stocks after receiving closed door COVID briefings before the pandemic began to rage, which exists to prevent financial conflicts of interest in Congress.

"Hey everyone, I'm David challenging, the CNN political director, this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Wednesday, March 9th, as a government shutdown looms and Ukraine continues to fight against Russia's attacks, the United States Congress is scrambling to pass a massive government spending bill. High drama on Capitol Hill today among Democrats. And yet another indication about how COVID is receding in the consciousness of our politics. Nancy Pelosi, the House speaker, had a revolt among her own members about the COVID relief funding piece of this enormous government spending bill. So the overall bill it's called the omnibus. This is when the funding of the government is all rolled in to one big Bill, like north of a $1 trillion. And in this bill were two sort of very headline driving elements. One, the emergency aid for Ukraine, which we'll get to in a moment, but the second sort of headline driving piece of what's in this huge government funding bill that's aimed at keeping all the lights on and the federal government fully operational was this COVID relief piece some $16 billion that had been targeted for COVID relief. And one of the things that we saw over the last couple of weeks is that Republicans were insistent that all of this should not be new money, that to offset the cost of this $16 billion funding piece inside this bill that some of the unspent money from previous COVID relief packages should be targeted towards paying for this. Since that money is currently unspent. In an effort to get a deal done, Nancy Pelosi worked with congressional leaders of both parties and found these offsets to do exactly that. Use some $8 billion, roughly of unspent money that had been distributed out in the states but not yet spent for previously announced COVID relief programs and repurpose that to pay for this new round of COVID relief funding. Well, a few very vocal Democrats immediately raised concerns to Pelosi and her team that they felt that their states were getting the raw end of this deal because they want to use that previous money that isn't yet fully spent. Listen to what a member of Congress, Angie Craig, she's from Minnesota, told CNN earlier today. This deal was cut behind closed doors. Members found out this morning. This is completely unacceptable. Our states have planned for these dollars. These are dollars that the federal government, we fought like tooth and nail to get these dollars. Yeah, I don't know what can happen today, but I'm happy to stay here in Washington. There's no reason to leave Washington that is more important than what we're dealing with here today. Craig went on to say that 30 of the 50 states would have been impacted here, including Washington state, Ohio, and Michigan, among others. Our reporting from our Capitol Hill team indicates things got very heated inside the speaker's office as they were trying to deal with this revolt, largely among Midwestern Democrats, but it became clear that Nancy Pelosi was not going to have the votes to pass this larger government funding bill. Remember, the funding of the government runs out at midnight on Friday, and the goal here was to pass this large government funding bill so that the government remains open in operational and the very urgent need to get Ukraine additional aid, both military aid and humanitarian aid in this package. Late this afternoon, Nancy Pelosi sent a clear statement out to her members and of course released it publicly, saying quote, because of Republican insistence and the resistance by a number of our members to making those offsets, we will go back to the rules committee to remove COVID funding and accommodate the revised bill. That means Pelosi lost her preferred root here. She had a strip out this COVID funding in a face saving move, Democrats say they plan to introduce a stand-alone COVID relief package, but the reality is that's likely going to have an uphill climb getting a sufficient number of Republicans on board in the Senate for passage onto the president's desk. But given where we are right now, I look at this moment politically as sort of another data point that people really do have COVID in the rearview mirror, the far more urgent political matter is the Ukraine piece of this. And in fact, it's attaching the Ukraine aid some $13.6 billion inside of this overall funding bill that is helping the funding bill move through at record pace. Now, the Congress it seems is also going to vote on a short term extension just in case they can't get this $1 trillion plus more than 2000 pages a piece of legislation all the way through both chambers to the president's desk signed by Friday midnight. But what's helping this all get through right now is that the bipartisan support that exists on the hill, something we really haven't seen that much ease focused on aiding the Ukrainian. So what's in that piece, the $13.6 billion of military and humanitarian aid? Well, roughly half of it about 6.5 billion will go to the Department of Defense so that it can deploy troops to the region and send defense equipment to Ukraine. More than 4 billion would provide humanitarian support for refugees fleeing Ukraine and people displaced within Ukraine. So that's where big chunks of that aid will go. One final footnote about this enormous spending legislation. In this bill, this government funding bill is a reauthorization of the violence against women's act. Now, I raise this because this was something that Joe Biden was an original co sponsor on in 1994. It authorizes funding for grants aimed at supporting victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, along with investigating and prosecuting violent crimes against women. This legislation expired back in 2018, the reauthorization.

"Behind secret dad orders time re cannot rely on the department alone to make these changes on quotes the house judiciary committee consequently oust that it will investigate the former administration surveillance of quote members of congress the news media and on quote this host dated the recording of this podcast. So please bear that in mind as you listen to follow so quinta i want to start with you. Bring us up to speed. I thought we were done discussing. Mike flynn and the investigation of him. How did this all come back. It is a pretty tangled tale. So i will give you the overview as best. I can essentially all. This has come to light more or less over. The past month was sparked by a series of disclosures from the justice department under attorney-general merrick garland to various news organizations. So the washington post cnn and the new york times that the department had in some cases sought in some cases sought and obtained a phone and email records from various reporters at those news organizations in the case of the washington post reporters. It's seems based on the timeframe from which the data was requested that the investigation may have involved a story. The post reported about a conversation between jeff sessions who is at the time on the trump campaign with russian ambassador sergei kislyak about the campaign or perhaps about obama administration efforts to counter russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election. The subject of the cnn. requests is unclear but the the justice department is seeking records for pentagon reporter barbara starr and then when it comes to the new york times. The times indicates that the subject matter the department was investigating seems to involve a story that the paper published about fbi director. James comey's decision on how to handle the clinton email investigation which involved a mysterious document of russian origin that was misleading and nature And which led komi so. He said to change the way he had handled the email investigation. That it's pretty tangled. We can get into that more letter if you like. Essentially according to the new york times the trump administration has pursued leak investigation into whether komi was a source for that story and so the suggestion is essentially that these records from reporters at the department may have sought those records as part of that leak investigation. So that's sort of part one of the story part two of the story or maybe part one a is that it later turned out that the times and us cnn the executives and lawyers at those organizations were placed under a gag order over requests for records of their reporters and then the other part of the story is that on june tenth. The new york times broke the story that in two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen. The justice department had successfully requested. That apple handover email meta data and account information from a variety of people linked to the house. Intelligence committee So now chairman. Adam schiff a representative eric. Swale well as well as committee. Aides and family members including at least one minor and apple also received gag order according to chairman. Shift the justice department environment may that the investigation was closed. But this news. I think really revitalized the discussion. That had been circulating so far about these Requests information from reporters. Congress pretty predictably was irate. I would say And there was a great deal of discussion about sort of what. What would happen. Next on june eleventh. A justice department inspector. General michael horowitz announced that he would be investigating these investigations after these demands from congress. There's also some some sort of odd little loose ends here about whether or not Attorney general bill barr previous attorney. General jeff sessions and a deputy attorney general rod rosenstein were aware of these requests at the time. They they all say that they don't recall and also i should know that the justice department apparently according to the washington post also requested information firm. Then white house counsel don mcgann in february two thousand eighteen. Well he was gel white house counsel so all of this is is a bit confusing. There is a lot we don't know But that is. I think that the picture as we now understand it as of monday. June fourteenth at our unfortunately so gabe before any of this broke. You wrote with bruce brown your colleague at the reporters committee a piece for l'affaire in which you gain of advice are reckon policy recommendations to the attorney general about how to handle media leaks investigations in the future as well as handle these past ones talk a little bit about when if ever it is appropriate for in your view for a such media subpoenas or subpoenas for foreign any male records of of press people to take place so i think in this case so before addressing the the that question in one thing here. That's particularly important to note with these requests with with other requests is that there is a set of internal policy guidance at the justice department that governs when in how members of the department can seek information from a members of the press in leak investigations in one of the key provisions. There and this was a change. Actually to the guidelines. Following controversies Under the obama administration When the justice department sought records from the phone records from the associated press in the actual content. For for james rosen. There was a change. Those guidelines requiring were putting in place at presumption of notice to the affected journalist or news organization before seeking to compel the production of meditated. Like this you know or other types of investigative steps the presumption of notice can can only be overcome. If the attorney general make certain determinations and those the exceptions to that presumption of notice are supposed to be pretty narrow grave harm. National security significant harm to an investigation Or threats to life and limb in. What's really important to know here is whether the presumption of notice provision in the guidelines was strictly followed the question about when it's appropriate disease records journalists the justice department itself recognizes that such investigative steps are particularly sensitive that if they're overbroad you can identify sources beyond just the source that you're trying to identify specific Leak investigation you can give visibility into what the newsroom is thinking about. And because of that there are these these guidelines in place at the justice department. That are really there. You know to ensure that investigative steps like these occur only in the most extraordinary situations pete you were part of the russia investigation and were still involved in it. At the time that the administration shifted. How should we understand this spree of subpoenas both on the congressional side and on the media side to what extent is. Is this what you would expect to see given. Jim commes publicly expressed at the time anxiety about the leaks. I mean he did say in public that he was very upset about the leaks and in congressional testimony that he was investigating them aggressively. Is this a a reasonable reflection of that or do you look at this pattern of of data record acquisition and say. I had no idea this was going on. I think that the question answer two ways the first is that the leaks that we saw in two thousand sixteen in two thousand seventeen particularly surrounding russia in the trump campaign and then administration were unprecedented in volume compared to anything i saw over the course twenty or career and having said that i think response government in response to those leaks investigating.

"We looked in again on the continental congress. And it's ongoing problems as it begins. Seventeen seventy nine. Money has always been an issue for congress and it was pretty much in the war on promises of future reward and those promises were beginning to wear pretty thin as the war approached. Its fifth year related to the money. Problems was the ongoing fight over silas deane and whether he was somehow improperly profiting from his efforts to form the french alliance and get french assistance shipped to america. This would be an ongoing fight that would last for years. Actually the fight would outlive dean and would continue on with his heirs. Henry lawrence proved to be a casualty of the dean controversy with his resignation. As president of congress as i said in the main show his replacement john jay had only arrived in congress. A few weeks prior jay is not some we've heard about much in the early years of the revolution but he would become much more prominent later. He will go on to negotiate the treaty of paris. Right some of the federalist papers in support of the constitution and would serve as chief justice of the us supreme court. He also found time to negotiate.

John jay founding father by walter star. It's a solid look at the life of founder who is largely overlooked. It was first published in two thousand five. The author walter star is an attorney who found a passion for writing historical biographies later in life. A my online recommendation. This week is the resignation speech of the outgoing president harry lawrence. It's pretty short less than five pages.

They have been saying they do it for a while. They've been trying for years but it's finally happened. Guys finally happened. They got to change the euro because the british isles are right in the smack dab. They're right in the middle of that euro so they're not part of the eu anymore. Very sad good or it's good but from the storage standpoint. Because i've always talked about the uk's part of the eu. And i have to change my stances on like how i speak. Because i know i'm gonna mess up on that a few times so but i'll try to correct myself. You not need noted the british and turkish governments. Now that you guys out they have to start finding other. They have to find people to actually trade with. They're not part of the anymore. Turkeys always traded with the european union but since the uk was part of that kind of just got in on that trade deal but now they're out so make their own deals so they made this deal with turkey and this is one of the one of the first major major deals they had this thing going with president trump. but you know no more president trump so a little bit shakey there. They tried to make with candida also a little bit shakey but turkey. They locked down. It's good to go and it's actually going to expand as we'll see in a minute but this trade deal is worth approximately twenty five billion dollars and is according to the turkish government the quote most important deal since nineteen ninety-five and so the reason for why this was signed off on was due to a large decrease tariffs the trade ministry in turkey. Went into into certain specifics. And saying this quote without a deal about seventy. Five percent of turkish exports to the uk would be subject to tariffs causing loss of about two point. Four billion dollars this risk. It's now gone and quote so this deal seems to be pretty beneficial from a consumer perspective because again tariffs are beneficial to consumers but not necessarily to producers and from a consumer perspective this is beneficial to both countries since all non agricultural products will be tariff free food. You're still gonna be dealing with those tariffs but if it's anything else you know you turkey and uk go out at a free market and so this deal is most likely to expand in the future. This was being hinted at by both governments. This was kind of just a laying the groundwork they're saying. Yeah we have our deal. But it's gonna get bigger teaser trailer. It's like a prescreening like see the movies before the actual movie this is. What's tumor could actually see. The movie is coming out in theater soon. So i'm excited. I my tickets.

It's been a museum for a pretty long time since the founding of turkey and it was it was turned into a mosque in francis very angry about that and this all this stuff coming into a lot of anger and tension between turkey and france. So they haven't been very nice to each other in so in general in germany also was not a big fan of turkey in regards to turkey joining the eu because he's an applicant for that but in general turkey and france tend to dominate. The european union insult. They don't want this powerful turkey coming in and kind of messing with the power balance says mainly part of it so that you have all that and the uk On the other hand was actually very four turkey. joining the european union. They allotted different opinions there Uk felt like it was being unfairly treated some more people more votes you know politics and so that's what you have and this these relations kind carried on. They're not you came turkey or not like hugging each other in the street but they get along right and they signed this trade deal so there you go. It's quite big. And it should expanded or expect in the united kingdom to post brexit and other officials out to sign trade deals with probably every country. Because you know they kind of have to do that now quite interesting maybe a little see a movie together. Maybe and maybe they will frolic down the streets and tell people about the world at large podcast which you should be doing however if you are frolicking just make sure you do not do it in southern pakistan because in southern pakistan. They burnt down a hindu temple. When i say they i mean just a up. Just a tiny mob. Few hundred people and they burnt down this hindu temple. And we're we're moving on if you didn't get the hint at so they burn this down. And this was a very big deal. A century old hickory temple. This mob was the motivations behind it are unknown. Sometimes people just do this stuff and so over. One hundred..

"congress" Discussed on The World at Large

"But there are some things specifically that did not happen for example before the four like in order to restore diplomatic relations. The gulf had a lot of demands including stop eating nice to iran turkey and shutdown to sarah cutter was like no and Let me think no So both of those are rejected. And that's where you stand. Soap cutter is actually kind of did pretty well. They stood up to these states and didn't actually have to meet any of these specific requirements which they thought was a breach of their international sovereignty and saudi prince fi saul said this and a quote. He said this. We are extremely pleased with having been able to achieve this very important breakthrough that we believe will contribute very much to the stability and security of all our nations in the region so there is no time given for when the relations would officially be restored. Just said they would be restored. And furthermore despite the steel it has become or those become very unclear when the countries of egypt in the uae which again are full both very critical of cutter for its close ties with turkey and iran. it's it's very clear when are going to actually restore ties directly like technically. They're part of the deal. Saudi arabia the leader of his blockade. Saudis outlet is you i e up because you eight years. Credibly credibly critical of cutter. It's pretty bad so trying to make sense right. I mean iran and we'll because cutter has very close ties with turkey and turkey as on multiple occasions threatened the united arab emirates directly. Saying you will pay for your actions in libya and stuff like you. Age is not not like being threatened in fact they they tend to not enjoy it very much weirdos and so on multiple occasions this has happened in for egypt. Egypt does not like does not like cutter because their ties with will because they have ties with hamas for example in the muslim brotherhood. Turkey sends a lot of aid money to hamas in the gaza strip and hamas. Kinda just this militant group. They're very known for their clashes with the state of israel. But they're also happen to be on the egyptian border egypt as a shoot on sight order for anyone who comes near their border from the gaza strip ensued. They do not they recognize your hamas which is a member an extension of the muslim brotherhood as a terrorist group. And so they don't like when turkey gets money to them and also the libyan civil war again they don't they didn't they're not huge fans of turkey funding their enemies in the civil war especially since they're on the border with libya that makes them extra angry so anyways We're going to move on it and so to another part of the deal. So all although they would theoretically comply this day being egypt and the united arab emirates there has been a lot of silence from each of these countries. Respect to four ministries. because again they're very outspoken. Against the against cutters so. We don't know what's actually going to happen there. We assume they're going to go along with it but grudgingly however we have yet to get any confirmation so the iranian foreign ministry. The they they got involved in. They actually sent a congratulations to cutter. Yeah iran is so nice ddo back like behind the scenes intentions or anything around just never. They're just very sweet. No country has any behind the scenes intentions when they sent. Congratulations saw the iranian foreign ministry. They sent their congratulations to cut her. Saying this in a staint. Congratulations for the success of your brave resistance to pressure and extortion. Or ron is neither an enemy nor threat especially with your reckless patron. On his way out that last part Being directed towards the gulf states because saudi arabia is indirectly being as part of this peace deal and this reckless patriot Talking about president trump because iran does not tend to get along with the united states under the trump administration did not notice. I wonder if it came in a nice little card. You know the once you pick up at. Cvs kim lazlo went to a walmart depicted up. Said i'm sure hello pun in their little joke. Maybe it popped up. I think trump is iran willing to spend that much money. I mean necessarily high quality car probably had to go through loops bureaucracy to get you know what i also hope was in card the british turkey trade deal i would love to talk about that And in fact we will. Let's talk with you. Had i just realized we actually have that on our list all right but before we get started. Let me tell you about a free platform called anchor. So what is anchor. Well as.
