"We're looking at some of the nominees and policies of the current administration focusing on one that happens to be in the spotlight at the moment that of ziji sewn to be a member of the Federal Communications Commission And Michael calls in from Virginia Beach Virginia good evening I have to ask your guests a question after I make a quick comment here Donald Trump had 58 million followers on Twitter before he was kicked off There's nowhere to host an America that has that kind of an audience not even close It's probably at least ten times larger than any talk show host out there So Twitter announced to a basic Basic industry And then the technology that of course made the possible came from better we talked about that with Theresa patent a few days ago on the show So what has happened obviously is that the politicians that drive to give the technology to a handful of people who are now using it to keep the president of the United States from communicating whether in the most affected platform available So what is the American principles project doing to supply the kind of questions that should be asked to share when I'm sorry when she goes to be examined by the Senate What kind of questions are you putting together Is she going to give us back our Internet that people like Jack versus and Mark Zuckerberg have stolen from us All right that's interesting thoughts The extent to which of course as Michael put it Social media outlets are essentially a public utility I'm not sure that I would treat it necessarily as a quote public utility or not that almost sounds like a viewpoint of the left But it does raise of course the questions that come out of the section two 30 of the communications decency act which would inevitably be a part of this discussion tonight just exactly what are these people Are they merely passing along What other people are saying or are they in fact publishers in their own right Because they're in I suppose lies a lot of the heart of this particular debate to John Yeah No I really appreciate the question from Michael Big tech censorship is something we've been very focused on now for several years and we've advanced section two 30 reforms that would promote a First Amendment standard for the Internet I think the thing we really have to think about with these companies they are private companies but the reality is they do have a sort of monopoly on information And have basically turned themselves because of their own success into the digital public square And so when a company like Twitter and Facebook did it too it was actually both of them When they de platform the sitting president of the United States that's a significant attack on democracy itself from these companies Politicians elected candidates what have you we need to be able to communicate with the voters and these platforms are where the voters are So I think section two 30 is one way to go about it But Republicans conservatives anyone really we just need to look at treating these platforms with the importance they are because ultimately I mean this is where politics happens now in 2021 and if we're not willing to do anything about it and just let the big tech sensors do what they want I don't think it's a good thing for democracy I think it would be very dangerous indeed I should section two 30 be amended or even eliminated We're fans of amending it We believe that it serves a very important purpose for some of the smaller sites but once you get into that market dominant space once you're truly the public square And I think we kind of know what that is right Twitter is the public square maybe a Muslim dating website would not be the public square And we need to be able to have these guys adhere to a certain set of standards And so our proposal is these companies all receive immunity from civil liability for the content posted on their platforms And we say hey if you want to keep getting that immunity adhere to a First Amendment standard with regard to political speech and religious speech and cultural speech Don't be taken people down because you disagree with what they're saying And we do want to platforms taking down the really bad stuff the illegal stuff but political speech I think is a bridge too far And as we go to the next call here just to follow up to that During congressional testimony of which there have been a fair amount from the heads of these tech giants hasn't the response pretty much been regarding adhering to a First Amendment standard Oh we will And if we've ever gone astray we're sorry I mean haven't they pretty much given lip service to that Yeah it's actually it's pretty incredible Some people I think even Josh hawley has suggested that some of these folks have lived to Congress But they absolutely will say to Republican conservative audiences hey we believe in free speech and then do something entirely different Call from Linda now in champagne Illinois good evening Look at evening I just want to say it's a short year of breath of fresh air You really are I walked in I haven't heard I didn't hear the beginning of this But I just want to thank you And they're really trying to divide everybody by class and raise and we do need to stick together And the people who don't want freedom of ideas I just want to say the cure for some idea you don't think it's good is not to stop people from putting the idea out there is put a better idea out there And I just I worry about how this all might somehow feed into I feel like a lot of this is working for the Chinese and the social credit score thing I wonder I don't know if mister shepherd's comment about social social credit score did you say Yeah How about you What do you mean by social credit score I'm sorry to be ignorant here but what exactly are you talking about there People are given privileges that the government thinks they can Dole out by whether or not you have a good enough social credit score whether or not you had to hear to whatever it is behaviorally that they want or speechly or whatever that they want The Chinese government policy You're afraid that we're hitting in that direction Because they're getting more and more information about people I was with some people tonight and that this is a little off the topic but they were talking about how so many things about your health they know for example somebody said they use a device for sleep apnea the doctor knows how much they use it and how much they sleep because it's all on the computer That's just an example of where these cars that are going to like say if somebody's they think somebody's not driving the right way they'll correct their steering some of these fancy new cars and it's going to spread to more and more cars Well then if they don't like your whatever it is you're doing or maybe you go to a certain place they don't want you to go to So what if it ever became illegal to go to a particular church or a particular mosque or a particularly whatever then they could take away a privilege Well we'll just cut off your Internet or whatever All right well it's not our guess to respond to that.

"Welcome back to Jim bohanna showing what 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo would 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 John Sheppard guest he's director of policy and government affairs for the American principles project and we're looking at the latest of the Joe Biden nominations for the critical posts in the government This is not technically a part of the administration but one of the three letter agencies in this case the Federal Communications Commission and the nomination of ziji seon to be on that commission Thomas calls in from fort Rucker Alabama good evening Good evening Jim To honor to talk to you hey thank you I was just wondering I'm a 20 year veteran here I served 20 years in the military and we've been listening to the radio talk show host and I just want to say that we need to get back to Paul Harvey and the way he spoke to the American people over the radio and I don't see that going on anymore And I'm wondering how do we get back to our roots as marathons well we'll do the best we can here I hear about no one of course will ever replace Paul Harvey but in terms of just American policy I would offer one thought and then I went to John Schweppes feeling There are an awful lot of people in this country right now who vote to the extent that they vote on one issue and one issue only and that is who's going to give me the most free stuff of course what they really mean is who's going to be the most stuff paid for by somebody else because it ain't free That is part of the problem If that is your issue if all this other stuff that we talk about on a program like this is ignored by such folks we're talking essentially about parasites and I'm sorry but that's what we're talking about As long as they make up a significant part of the electorate the goal of Thomas and fort Rucker I think will be difficult to attain John Well first of all Thomas thank you for your service No I think you're right on that Jim I think another aspect of it also is that when you look at it I think Democrat politicians especially There's been an effort to divide Americans You know you go to any I'm from Alito Illinois a small town in Illinois I actually grew up working in radio Jin which was really fun at a small independently owned station but I want to lead out whether you're a Republican or Democrat growing up We all wanted what was best for our kids and for our families And I think we need to get back to that So I agree with the caller but really what it's got to come down to is get these politicians out here in Washington to stop trying to pit us against each other stop trying to really divide Americans and try to impose this Marxist agenda One problem in that regard of course is that there are a number of politicians elected principally by the aforementioned parasites of the number of politicians who really resent the electorate a lot because these politicians and some of their elitist Friends and the bureaucracy know much more than we do and are much better than we are morally and intellectually and if we were just as voter just shut up and listen to what they tell us to do but we won't do that And that's a real problem for these folks Todd in Atlanta good evening Todd Good evening I really appreciate you taking up this topic and shows like yours mister bohan have been in the crosshairs of the Marxist for a long time I value freedom of the airwaves not valued diversity of opinion And topics like this and guests like you have on will never be on national propaganda radio in the NPR but my question is more about cronyism When you have I can remember when drug companies and lawyers did were not allowed to advertise on TV And I just wonder what media outlets are going to investigate corrupt drug companies that are buying millions of dollars of ads or a shoe company that's getting their products made by slave labor in China when they're buying millions of dollars of advertising Do you have any opinions on that regard I thought Sir John swip Well I think part of the problem is we have I would say almost a unit party out here that defends the interest of corporations above all else And pharmaceutical industry is a perfect example of that And I think what we need to do is have a kind of a people's electoral revolution I suppose where we're sending people to Washington who are there to fight for workers or there to fight for families enough for these corporations And this is part of a problem we've had for a long time but I do see some encouraging signs on this I mean we have populist movements on both the left and the right starting to push back against that crony capitalism and so hopefully we'll see some movement in the years ahead One can only hope that we will in fact and of course that will be largely up to the public We'll talk some more about those midterm elections and the extreme importance of those midterm elections Something that I think is recognized not only by hopeful conservatives but also by fearful Democrats who are not heading into those elections that totally ignorant they may have policies that are counterproductive to where they would like to be but that doesn't alter the fact that they can read handwriting on the wall like the rest of us can One 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo is our number one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 our number We're talking with John schweppe director of policy and

"Jimbo is our number one 8 6 6 5 O four 6 and 5 two four 6 and we're delighted to have this right John schweppe director of policy and government affairs for the American principles project of what exactly is the American principles project Well we're a conservative group We are founded back in 2009 in response to kind of the more extreme aspects of the Obama agenda And now we've really kind of grown into a political group where we are engaged in campaigns and elections Spending millions of dollars with our super PAC to try to get good conservatives elected so it's been pretty fun Our president Terry Schilling who I think has been on your show before He likes to Bill us the NRA for the family And that's what we're trying to accomplish I think we're on our way to doing that which is pretty exciting You mentioned president Obama He's almost looking better in comparison with this administration It's hard for me to imagine some time back early on either in this administration or in the period after the election leading up to this administration it was Barack Obama who urged liberals to not push quite so hard so far so fast And in that regard I think you could make the case as perverted as it sounds that in a way Barack Obama is more dangerous because he knows the pace at which you can proceed along these rather socialist lines and that is to say not too much at any one time And if he was derided as a big somewhat unwoke I think at the time by some of the more radical progresses in the Democratic Party but to me Barack Obama's approach reminds me of that of the old story of the frog in the boiling water You put a frog in a pan of boiling water the frog will hop out You put a frog in a pan of lukewarm water at gradually heat it up and the frog will just sit there until it boils to death and Barack Obama's approach here at least at what he calls his approach More slowly boil the frog the frog being us the American people whereas in a way you could almost say that the AOCs of the world and others have done us a favor by charging ahead so far so fast so much that it's awakened a lot of people Your thoughts about that I think that's a really astute comparison And I think goodness that Joe Biden and the Democrats now are very good cooks But yeah I mean that's definitely true And look I actually think it's interesting you bring up the Obama comparison because early on in those first two years of his term he may have actually been guilty of moving a little too fast They pushed for ObamaCare Government takeover of healthcare And it costs them dearly in that 2010 election And I think he figured some things out from that Went on to win reelection And what we're seeing here I think it's going to be a lot like the 2010 Tea Party wave we saw with the junk and race in Virginia That's Virginia is a blue state And Glenn youngkin was able to win pretty pretty handedly which I think is a sign of how unpopular the Democrats are right now So it'll be interesting to see if the Democrats learn from this after but I think they're certainly set on losing pretty big in the midterms which is so if we can talk a bit about that But yeah that midterm is looking really really shaky John sweepy our guest director of policy and government affairs for the American principles project again Their website is simply their name American principles project dot org and we're talking about in particular the nomination of ziji sewn to be on the Federal Communications Commission but also the general approach of this administration as that looks at its dealings with the electorate the American public one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo our number one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 and we'll be back with more in just a moment Finding great candidates to hire can be like well trying to find a needle in a haystack.

"You can follow me on Twitter at Jimbo talks We're gonna talk in this first hour tonight about something that has not gotten a lot of headlines but something which deserves to because we're talking about a very important position A position on the Federal Communications Commission One of those areas of federal jurisdiction which has a great deal of impact on your life even though you may not look up at any given time and say well the FCC has done it again but sometimes that would be the appropriate response We're talking about a seat on the Federal Communications Commission There are 5 members of the commission no more than three can be from one political party and there have been a couple of nominations put forward by President Biden We're going to be talking about that with your calls at one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo One 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 and with John schweppe director of policy and government affairs for the American principles project online at their name American principles project dot org will learn more about that group as well but John good evening Jim thanks so much for having me Good to have you on the program tonight now Then we're talking about a person by the name of sohn to be placed on the Federal Communications Commission And she was picked and nominated by President Biden to join the commission the last month Tell us about her from the perspective of the American principles project Sure Well when we're talking about the Federal Communications Commission this is a powerful body This is a body that controls our airwaves that is really kind of responsible for overseeing free speech and pre expression and freedom of the press of making sure that these values are upheld So we take these nominations very seriously The Biden administration just confirms someone else Jessica rosenworcel who's been on the FCC previously and look she's a progressive but it's hard to say she's a radical And she has used on net neutrality I think most conservatives would disagree with But that is who she is Gigi sewn is a little bit different This is a radical progressive activist someone who really doesn't believe in free speech and free expression Someone who's really dedicated a lot of professional career to pressuring advertisers to go off to getting cable companies to drop stocks She wants to take conservative media and really try to prevent it from reaching the people And there's plenty of comments she has on the record which is what she's under fire for the most right now Going after Fox going after OAN and newsmax going after anybody that they deem to be misinformation that's their favorite word And it's really dangerous I think anytime you're putting somebody on that body that seems to be pretty opposed to free speech I think that's something that Republicans should be concerned with but even everyday America One of the certainly would think so by that description you know you have to wonder about this Okay someone like the person you named initially I believe is the new chair of the Federal Communications Commission I suppose would be expected The president obviously is to the left of the Republican Party and again as I said to be expected This one sounds like almost an in your face kind of nomination By the way you've described it Yeah this might be the type of nomination you as a democratic president maybe pick if you're got 60 votes in the Senate And that's not really the case here I mean GG is a known partisan in Washington She was very opposed when chairman of pi was in there She was leading the charge against pretty much everything he wanted to do She's nakedly partisan in that And so she kind of set up this almost reminds me a little bit of the nira Camden nomination earlier this year and that she just has such a political animal that she has so much out there on the record that kind of gave her trouble with some of the moderate Democrats And I think that's what we're seeing here And there's actually a Politico story today Pretty much saying she's in deep trouble There is now talk about her potentially promising to accuse herself from anything involving some of these conservative media outlets That would be a good portion of her caseload So what's the point of even having a nominee who would recuse herself from such a me at that point you'd have to think the president would have to say well that's no good Why do I want to appoint her if she feels and if maybe that's reality that this is the price of her even the possible confirmation I would have to say if I'm Joe Biden then what's the point Well I think that's something they're definitely considering right now There's a different nominee to a different position who they just pulled today And so it could be a situation where that same thing happens But what we're trying to do at American principles project is getting this information out there about Gigi's zone about what she could do if she was granted this position at the FCC and trying to put the pressure on to prevent her from getting 50 votes in the center Well it's 6 6 5 O Jimbo our number one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 Of course the topic that is resonating much in this day and age is that of net neutrality If you could get into what that is and where Gigi's own comes down on that issue well net neutrality if you remember from a few years ago before president Trump the argument for net neutrality was that we were worried about the Internet service providers the telecoms throttling content suppressing content sensoring The arguments that were being made often ironically by big tech companies and now we've kind of reached this point where it's a few years later And we've seen the results under Trump's FCC that's not that didn't happen right They got rid of net neutrality They allowed the telecoms to innovate and thrive and we saw significant broadband expansion We didn't see any of the throttling and even during COVID while European nations that have net neutrality regimes in place They were seeing slower speeds and delays in video and all that And we weren't seeing that here So but look I think the key thing here is they want to impose that type of regime maybe even a more aggressive one to really oversee Internet service providers And it seems like the real problem here is big tech companies That's where our attention should be focused Those are the guys that are really the bad actors and all this The carriers are just carriers So yeah they are definitely going to prioritize that That's always been a Democrat priority at least in the last ten years And of course even if it's not Gigi selling even if it's any Democrat that's going to be the priority of this administration under the FCC This issue sounds like the argument I've heard about a lot of issues out there Some of them education related And that is it doesn't have anything to do with the actual subject matter at hand It has to do with power Would you say that is correct in the case of net neutrality Yes absolutely This is about empowering government bureaucrats to fully control the Internet And they'll sell it in a different way than that but that's effectively what it is And it's not limited to this industry Democrats believe that about almost every industry And we're just talking about this industry because we're talking about the FCC 26.650.

Tired of robocalls? The FCC is still trying to stop them

"The us about twenty percent of calls to cell phones and forty percent to landlines are robocalls many of them scams and tomorrow is the deadline for voice service providers including some phone companies to show the federal communications commission. What steps. they're taking to stop robocalls. Brad reeves is a professor of computer science at north carolina state university. He said the fcc is telling these companies to be on the lookout for clear signs of fraud for example if your phone company and you have a customer that is sending hundreds of thousands of calls per day but almost none of them get answered. Doesn't necessarily mean you're doing anything illegal but it certainly suspicious and you should be looking into it. So yeah i the fcc has a new system right like technical system that can help weed out the robocalls so the fcc is mandating that all providers either now or within a couple of years implemented set of technical standards called stir and shaken. This is something that changes. How calls are made to add a little token to indicate where the call came from and which provider was responsible for it. So you can think of this kind of like the post office putting a postmark on a stamp. The reason this is important. Is that when you receive a robo call and maybe you call your phone company to complain about it. They have to figure out where that call came from. And before sir shaking it was a laborious process that took days in most cases. Do you think that this is gonna work. I wouldn't bet on it. There are just too many loopholes and ways to bypass the

FCC Wants to Help Americans Pay for Broadband

"So mike you were recently about. Nfc program to help americans pay for their broadband right. That's correct and it's officially up and running. Now it's called the emergency broadband benefit program and it was part of the roughly nine hundred billion covid. Nineteen relief package passed by congress in december twenty twenty and signed by president trump after that within the package was three point. Two billion set aside for the federal communications commission to cover the program what it does provide a discount of up to fifty dollars a month toward broadband bills for eligible households and up to seventy five a month for households on qualifying tribal lands eligible. Households also can receive a one time discount up to one hundred dollars to buy a laptop or desktop computer or tablet from participating providers. They contribute more than ten dollars but less than fifty dollars to the purchase. How do you know if you qualify for this. Well we have appropriate in my story on tech that usa today dot com. But here's some information. For instance if you qualify for the lifeline program a program that helps low income. Americans purchase broadband access. You automatically qualify for this. You also qualify. If you're on medicaid or your partner you participate in the snap program also eligible as any home with an income at or below one hundred thirty five percent of the federal poverty guidelines. So math is involved as are those in the free and reduced lunch school program school lunch program. I should say in school breakfast. Program and homes for students who are pell. grant recipients also eligible. Some homes have had substantial loss of income since february. Twenty nine twenty twenty like i said my story has links to all these spots and how to figure out whether you qualify. You can also go to the site. You could probably find it there.

They had were told the craziest stories. You'd ever wanna hear trying to get their application in some of them. We ended up faxing in in in in to get an in Somehow to handwrite it. You know and do paper applications. I mean it was. It's so challenging. One of those tribes as douglas indian association near juneau kamal lint off says the trip was happy to get assistance. We had no clue. You know what this really was. And then no clue on how to how we manage it or even get started We had probably a couple of different places contact us and we kinda jumped on board with that one stinking. I was all we needed to do.

Some tribes are getting help narrowing the digital divide

"Indian country. The proportion of households with high speed internet access has consistently lagged behind the rest of the us. There has been some work to improve things including an influx of federal funding. That's helped some tribes build their own broadband networks across the country.

The covid nineteen pandemic has made it difficult for tribal employees to work from home because many don't have reliable and affordable internet service but now we can actually put ip phone right on our phone network right at your house and just be like having an office. Right at your. The network will also allow tribal police to issue tickets electrically from their vehicles and the tribal health department to do paperwork in the field. This is one of the first tribally controlled wireless networks to come out of a federal communications commission program that gave tribes across the us wireless spectrum licenses for free but tribes still have to build in pay for the infrastructure to broadcast high speed broadband.

"Right now. I wanna talk about the giant foam calls that are a curse for so many of us. And did you know that the feds at the there's an obscure agency called the fcc federal communications commission that It's obscure enough. It's amazing how many people find their way to complain to the fcc about all the junk phone calls they get and more than any other topic they ever get complaints about so now the fcc has issued yet another rule to try to crack down on all the phone calls and now trying to compel the nation's major phone companies to actually help because one of the dirty little secrets about it is there are ways. They profit from all the phone calls and now they're under a federal order to do things to limit the number jumped phone calls. You get but they're still going to continue. I mean how many times do you get that junk phone call about how your warranties expired on your car and you need to buy this that or the other piece of garbage fake extended warranty on your vehicle and the giant phone calls go on and on and on and on and you think about how many junk phone calls that. People got in twenty twenty from political campaigns. Those are protected speech. Those will continue when we get into our next election cycle. That thank goodness isn't till next year. Had enough of that right. actually. I say next year. Yeah next year. We're back in another political season. But for the meantime those will slow down but the other ones.

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Shed Light on the Digital Divide

"Today I'm happy to have with me two excellent guests to address I. Think a very significant issue that we've known about for a long time, but has become especially poignant during the pandemic, not as the digital divide. A lot of us have you know with some bumps along the way made a fairly smooth transition to living life onscreen. But there's a lot of folks out there who have not, and that is because they continue to be and before the pandemic, there were very large disparities between who had access to the types of tools necessary to live in this new virtual world and who had the. Skills and the background necessary to thrive world that looks like it will be more virtual in the future than in the past even when pandemic has passed the to talk about these trends, I've two terrific guests. Kimberly Bryant is the founder of Black Girls Code Jessica Rosenthal. Soul is a commissioner for the Federal Communications Commission and were I hope we will have a great robust discussion about these issues. Just, let me start with you the digital divide. It's very old term. It's been around a long time. What did we learn? That's knew about it from this pandemic. Well, thank you for having me ads on what's important now is that the digital divide has been exposed s pandemic. Because now, we see conclusively the hard truth that our nation's gapped in digital skills. Digital access is very real and very big. And if in Washington, we used to think about broadband Internet literacy as Nice to have this pandemic has proven that it is neat to have as a nation were online for school for education or work for health care for entertainment and so much more. We've got a recognize is that we are not going to live up to our civic and commercial potential. If we don't find a way to connect everyone in this country, you've talked about the homework gap as sort of like the analog to digital divide tell us about that and what we've learned about it and why it matters. Yes said being the before times before we are all in home there was this thing that was happening that I noticed, which was that teachers were increasingly assigning homework that require Internet access. But what I know from the FCC is that one in three households do not have broadband? and. So the kids who lived in those households in just fall into a digital divide they fell into a homework they could do their nightly schoolwork I mean when all of us were growing up, you know we need to paper and Pencil and a clean. Spot on the kitchen table around a desk, but you need Internet access now to successfully participate. In school and that digital divide on Homework Gab has just become clearer in this crisis we said millions of kids home and told them to go to virtual classrooms. But if you don't have Internet access, you're out of that virtual classroom and we know it because we've seen chilling pictures on social media of hid sitting outside of fast food restaurants with laptops just try to access free Wifi signal so. They can go to online school and I just think in the United States. Of America we should be able to come up with policies that closed at hallmark gap. So no child is offline. Thanks can let me turn to you for a moment obviously One of the things we know about the digital divide is that it's more pronounced among certain historically disadvantaged groups, including people of Color and women. Black Girls Code I believe was founded to address both those saints tell us a little bit about your organization if you could just to start out absolutely on. Thank you again for having me on black holes was down right here in the bay area where I am today in our goal is said, is to address this issue around diversity inclusion, any equity in the technology landscape our focus is really to target girls Monday represented communities so African American. Students Hispanic Students, American. Students who are traditionally disenfranchised from Tech rears which actually pay their are look at content can change the trajectory of families in. It's not communities. We do that by really interesting girls as. Young as seven all the way through eighteen plus the skills and technology and teaching them about coding robotics game development.

Hey, Mike. Hey, Mike. What's up? How A man got a quick question for you. It's very possible. Absolutely open away. You got a question for me. I'm going to answer it now the depth which without can go, maybe, you know, limited by whatever whatever restrictions I have by Federal Communications Commission. But I will do my best to answer any question you got for me, my dude. How good of helping anyone blame one person for a disease. That's a great question. I don't think that anyone's blaming one person. In other words. There's nothing that any president could have done to stop that virus from getting to America like that, whether it started in the wet market or was cooked up in a lab somewhere. It doesn't matter how that happened with the way the world works. There's no way you could have identified patient zero and taking them out immediately. So the blood of 210,000 Americans is not necessarily on one person's hands, however. If you are the sitting president, the buck stops with you. And when 210,000 people die, and the U. S, has such an alarming death rate a supposed to the rest of the world. There's accountability there and you have to take it as the president. So you know, saying Well, if you were president, we would have lost more people. Well, you don't know that to be true. If someone else was president, we might have lost 50,000. Or we might have lost four million. We just don't know, but unfortunately, whether Democrat Republican or whatever if you're sitting in the in the president's seat You're going to have to take it in the shorts. When that happens on your watch, just like you get the credit. When you have a robust economy, which we definitely did before. All this came along low unemployment. Everything was going great. And then this came along and we had to take it in the short, so I don't think that anybody believes That Donald Trump has killed 210,000 people. However, when you look at the inconsistency when you look at how he had to open things up right away when he's so passionate about not wearing a mask, even when he gets the Corona virus, he still doesn't follow. What the CDC and what his own doctors they're telling him. That I think is where he leaves himself vulnerable when it comes to accusations of accountability and autumn stand. What an awesome answer. Thanks, man. Appreciate that's what I'm here to do. 7275791025 alive. Hello? Who are you? Then? Hey, I just come in a long time.

And I I raise a glass to him and say cheers to you. You vote the way you wanna vote. I'm gonna vote the way I want a vote, and it it doesn't matter to me. If you think I'm wasting my vote, I'm going Sleep just fine tonight. Told you really true and it just stuck in my head. All we tell people think that way and why we're in this predicament.

Let people see that so that his supporters would follow That example? And he refused to do it point it was. It was pure narcissism on his part to the point we heat out there. Saving appeared. Well, I don't know what you're now and look, I'm not here to tell you. The man's not a narcissist. I think anybody with an armchair degree in psychology like you and I clearly have weak We could certainly look at his personality type and say that, but I think it's got less to do with narcissism and more to do with wanting to be reelected and wishing upon wishing That this virus would just go away because if it goes away, it's good for America and its good for the sitting president, whomever that might be. Unfortunately for him, this thing is still around. And if we're to believe the numbers, they're still coming out. We're starting to see things creep back up as we open back up. So you know it's unfortunate that so many people do take their marching orders from him, and I think that he's not necessarily directly responsible for that. But you're right. There's some irresponsibility there. When you say liberate Michigan on and then your supporters hatch a plan. To kidnap the governor of Michigan, a victim of sexual assault. If I'm not mistaken, you do bear some responsibility, whether you want to admit that or not, Yeah, that that's insanity, but I also did want to ask you. Did you see the New England Journal of Medicine? This morning. Pretty on President article? Yeah, pretty unprecedented to save especially what I thought was the nonpartisan New England Journal of Medicine. Say you know that there is a national health crisis and that the threat of Trump must be stopped. That's ah, that's bold. That's ah, that's very bold, Stark and again, you know, I I encourage people to engage in independent thought, but No again. You don't know who's bought or paid for, though. You know what I'm saying? Like, I'm not saying they're not right. I'm not saying they are. I'm just saying Just about everybody has bought and paid for when it comes to that level of Ah, PR and such to grovel live alone. Who are you? You don't know my name is Rico Leg win because of the things that got brought up last night was the math. Yeah, Offense was, you know, and in my In my honest opinion after hearing pencils response, it was more along the lines of Americans all grown up people and we big day what we see on health and all.

Well, what I see that plan to be a Sean Open the country back up as far as a mile and Joe Biden and they really didn't elaborate. When that question got, let me let me tell you how I took his response because I took it completely differently. They were asking him why they didn't follow the rules, and he pivoted to. Well, we don't have to follow the rules. If we feel that the rules are right, well, that's That's not the message you want. The message should be What these air the rules away. Excuse me. I take it. He's a guy. The rules are the rules the rules of the debate where the rules of debate etcetera, and when you don't follow the rules, you run the risk of spreading this disease even more. We haven't seen this disease go away yet. So this isn't the time to say, Let's not wear masks. I don't know what's done to eradicate this disease completely. I don't want to see another spike because I don't want to see businesses have to shut down again. And people will continue to lose their jobs to grovel. Live alone. Who are you?

Their towns would be a lot better they be they be more concerned about. Stuff on a local level, along with a national level. Really good point. And, you know, I know. Yeah. And you know your words resonate with me. Because if I'm going to decry the lack of third party participation on the federal level well, then how about we find some decent local candidates who are libertarian so that they can get elected to public office?.

Chuck. Reese says in the coming months, it will help Ron can't wireless hyphen Internet's over roughly eighty percent of the reservation to give you an idea of we're bringing fiber optic right in here to all the way up this mountain. I missed his first class connective nearly half of local residents here have no access to high-speed Internet recess. This change will now allow them to take advantage of online education and telehealth and give tribal police connectivity. Ours in February the Federal Communications Commission offered Free Broadband, wireless spectrum, capable of broadcasting high speed wireless Internet tribes initially, not many applied because to make the equipment on those towers really robust. You need a healthy amount of power to the and strong fiber Jeff Blackwell as with Amarin Risk Management and native owned Insurance Company that helps tribes improve digital access within five years. Tribes have to pay to build towers and run fiber optic cable and other utilities to actually make these wireless networks reality. Each project could cost hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars after Congress passed eight billion dollars in federal corona virus relief funding for tribes. In late March tribes submitted more than four hundred applications for the free wireless. Bank trump is it's worthy took this step for broadband purposes. But also utilizing a mechanism that recognizes that placing tribal nations, themselves and the center of the regulatory process has a chance of significance success. However, Blackwell says many tribal lands weren't included in that the F. C. C. will need to make more spectrum available to tribes in the future to shrink the digital divide in Indian country. In the meantime, those like blackwell will be focused on helping tribes currently in the build process succeed

whole state of Vermont right here right now it's a high it's Kevin from Calcutta you have a credit card offer yeah well listen major phone companies claiming that they're going to do more to help fight and stop and restrict these unwanted robo calls most of us have experienced those annoying and sometimes threatening phone calls from scammers and others IRS is filing lawsuits against Americans get nearly five billion such automated calls each month attorneys general from all fifty states now say twelve of the nation's largest phone companies are pledging to do more to fight them but no actual time line has been set St AG's what the phone companies to trace the origins of various robo calls and allow law enforcement to investigate tomgram fox news now are you confident that the phone companies are gonna do this it's hard to feel coffin about right now because it's the problem is getting worse every single day so it and not to mention they make money off of it well sure and yeah long run they do whether these major phone companies are now telling the state's attorney generals that they will do more and they're trying to get ahead of it so that they don't get sued yeah that's the latest attempt in the latest step by the government in the industry to combat this growing problem Americans get nearly five billion calls from scammers telemarketers debt collectors and others every month yeah yeah the agreement echo some of the steps already taken by officials and Congress which are working on the anti rebel call bills yeah the state Attorney General say phone companies will offer call blocking tools for free to all of the traditional landline users but they will also block calls for everyone at the network level yeah the Federal Communications Commission has called the phone companies to block the unwanted calls it expects carriers not to charge you for it they're not gonna they're gonna do all these extra steps but they say they're not going to charge you for which is Bravo Sierra companies don't do things for free it also calls on them to make sure that caller ID numbers are real and not fake this agreement does not have a time line so that's why I'm not good enough well hopeful about it listen were were were coming up on a major election obviously the phones are very important pollsters and I would think those are very important non landline political or what he meant not landslide tells all we get on land lines yeah that's what I say if you were if you were people it's it using a land line to conduct a poll is becoming more and more untrustworthy unreliable it's it's not a real cross section of society most people don't have a land line what's a what if if that if that end of communication was to save any of that all they've got it they got to fix this because I don't I don't know why we have a land line anymore other than for my mother in law to call in and say Hey sugar yeah that's the that's the number she remember that is that's those are just the mother in law hotline and that is the old I'm I'm not even I'm not kidding that is the only actual human being that wants to have a conversation that's that's the only person the calls that line that is it and and so that's the ending in Camelot get rid of that line because that serve connection to remind that **** I got in that case that's understandable sure but show but other than that it's just going to be a system we roll calls that's all but but they have they do have to fix this problem but I know that this is you know we're good we're going to be getting those poll calls on our cell phones it is well that's very important political party so are there going to be lobbyists that are gonna be trying to keep this going trying to keep the robo call the selling yeah probably so yeah it is a six forty one and let's talk a little bit about this story about this guy that had a bunch of guns and a few weeks ago was walk around peace park yeah very suspicious looking and and was arrested and should have the guns in the first place because he had a felony warrant for his arrest of Houston area interesting story at and let's update you because it's it kind of ties into the governor's you know gaps in background check conversation he's been having with this task it sure that this man is facing multiple charges for killing an arsenal of weapons in peace park recently and he had a felony warrant for his arrest at the time and should not have been allowed to buy the guns yet he was able to purchase the guns from central Texas god works owner Michael Cargill spoke with CBS Austin said nothing popped up in his background check someone didn't process the paperwork right didn't contact the the Knicks to let them know that something is working on this person's tonight and also we were notified yeah if you're not aware the Knicks that's the system where they put in the all of your data your information in and checked with the fads and it tells you yeah he's okay are she's okay or he's not been vice versa yeah well Cargill says that he sold this guy in a R. five five six after a three day waiting period he says Harris County drop the ball by not processing the felony charge in Houston let's make a correction was a felony charge it was a felony arrest warrants yes she had a warrant for his arrest yes and according to the a TF in all of that means you should not been able to buy a gun god that according to the C. B. S. story now I'm trying to figure this out I mean I understand if you have a felony conviction your restricting for buying a weapon but if you're just accused of a family you're not quite on that list yet but a warrant for your arrest I think that would be a red flag all of I mean if it would lower here yes and if you think about it this is R. Harris County does not mean out of Houston does that mean the gun grabber art Acevedo dropped the ball on this is that what this means because this goes back to July of twenty eighteen and according to the a TF in the C. B. S. story this guy should never even you know been able to buy the gun well yeah he was cleared by he was cleared to by the weapon despite having a felony warrant for his arrest of Harris County from July of twenty eighteen or intellectually threatening us father with a knife they say that should have prevented him from buying the rifle or owning any firearm whatsoever according to ATF regulations also accused of hitting his girlfriend with an open hand several times pushing her out of the room grabbing a knife and yeah threatening to stab his father this is a violent guy obviously this bore you talk about the system absolutely if if everything as it is it is as it seems a corner Cargill it one hundred percent failed this guy was was very likely about to kill some people he was at least he was it well he the the bottom line you somebody we don't want to have guns no no that yeah if the if the very least the the if the now what are you planning to do something bad something malicious and vicious what we may never know until we dive a little bit deeper into his mind which tell which also concerns me okay look what happened here fortunately we had some very observant people who called nine one one is said were concerned about this guy who's carrying guns drugs markets which most well okay who who else is out there right now well system failed there has been a rash of lots the guy that shot at the surveillance springs church and I never had the gun either how many that was a military mistake he also had felony charges on his record in the navy failed to add him to the nexus system so that was a military mistake there but over the past month we've been talking about the stories the dozens of young people that have been arrested for making threats online police official you saw the video yesterday I absolutely love your old kid it was arrested in front of his mother he was talking about shooting up a school on an online check form and they're going out there I think what we're seeing is more more people are starting to pay attention and have have increased their level of awareness and are willing to call the police to say Hey this guy may be up to something please and and and and yes and and they're active right now people are paying attention right and we got to keep that up we got to keep it up six forty five in a check on traffic.

"Company is taken as much money as you can in premiums and pay out as little as possible in health care coverage other candidates like former vice president Joe Biden want Americans to be able to choose their healthcare coverage no one has to keep during private insurers but they they would like their insurance they should be able to keep it doctors you can manual has heard all this before he was part of the team that drafted the affordable Care Act during the Obama administration and he turned studio head there nice to be with you all right let's start with terminology because the phrase Medicare for all is being used to describe a lot of different things in its purest sense what does true Medicare for all actually mean well it is that's the Bernie Sanders sense and that is we get rid of private insurance everyone is in Medicare fee for service and in Medicare fee for service you get to choose your doctor the government pays the doctor the hospital so there's no co pays no deductibles vision hearing aids and other things that aren't in traditional Medicare packages are covered which other Democrats besides Bernie Sanders are on that and of the healthcare spectrum well it appears that Elizabeth warning although not not necessarily all the time and and and and those are really the only to everyone else is sort of on a scale for somewhere in between those right I'm at my I might say on a scale somewhere in between that has more government intervention then the Barack Obama had in the affordable Care Act yeah everyone is further towards more government taking more responsibility and I do want to ask you about why the Obama administration when the course it did but first just to understand the facts right now when you look at American health coverage what percentage of Americans get health coverage on the private market as opposed to some form of government provided health care so you have about a hundred and fifty to sixty million people have employer sponsored insurance and then about another fifty a million people have individual coverage or through the exchanges and that gets you to something like fifty five to sixty percent of the population has private insurance and then you have another call a hundred and thirty million people who have Medicaid or Medicare coverage so that's the break down and we have roughly eighty nine ninety percent of Americans have health insurance so when you were working on the law that became known as obamacare there was no discussion of totally eliminating private coverage but there was discussion of giving everybody the option of getting on Medicare is is known as the public option why didn't the Obama administration ultimately go that route politically impossible the charge against it was led by Joe Lieberman senator from Connecticut where a lot of health insurance companies were based he was an independent who caucused with Democrats correct but he wasn't the only one who is opposed to that there are other Democrats who didn't take the lead the way senator Lieberman did and they were opposed and it became clear we couldn't get that provision and acted and pass the bill and that I might remind the audience was with sixty senators in the Senate and sixty Democrats in the Senate right and an overwhelming number in the house there are people who have other views and they listen to their constituents and many constituents whether union members or people with employers to give them good benefits or I just don't want to think about and I rather let my employer deal with it those people actually like their system even if they have complaints about the insurance companies now and then so as you point out this debate about political viability a decade ago was happening with sixty Democrats in the Senate right now Democrats don't even control the Senate we don't know what the situation will be in twenty twenty the what do you think the political calculus is in this moment I mean do you think the public option has become more politically viable in the last decade absolutely I thank god it isn't without a super majority in Congress I think both Republican and democratic voters recognize that they want to have security and a public option does communicate that security to them it will always be there and the government will stand behind it and I do think that tells you we learn from experience if the market place isn't working let's try something else and I think that has to be the motivating factor behind any democratic bill we're aiming for universal coverage and as we learn we've got a revised and reform the system based upon how it's performing not based upon some ideological commitment so how much is the debate that we're seeing this week among Democrats just about the difference between what it takes to win a democratic primary and what it takes to actually get legislation through Congress I think most of what we're hearing is about trying to differentiate your candidacy on healthcare from other candidates running I might also say one of the things that's been bothering me about the quality of the debate we have is it really is focused on coverage and I think a much bigger element is affordability we haven't had so much talk about the affordability argument and that really has gotten a very small amount of the debate and it needs a lot more that debate doctors you can manual one of the architects of the affordable Care Act obamacare is now at the university of Pennsylvania thanks for coming in today thank you are it's been a pleasure the Federal Communications Commission is waging a battle against robo calls and today it moved to ban overseas scam artists who make calls that seem to come from local numbers here's my Naylor joins us now with the details of his studio fine thanks what exactly are these calls at the FCC took issue with so they are the calls that look like they're coming from a number that you might recognize maybe it's your area code or maybe it's the same exchange it seems as though it's coming from someone you might know or from your town but it isn't it's someone that's using technology pretending to be a local call then it could be coming from literally anywhere here's how FCC chairman IG hi explained the problem at today's hearing in the first half of this year alone the FCC received more than thirty five thousand consumer complaints about caller ID spoofing whether it is neighborhood spoofing which makes it look like an incoming call from a local number or speaking the number of a company or government agency the consumers know and trust scammers continued to hide behind spoof numbers to deceive and to fraud American consumers out of money and personal information at this point has the FCC basically made these calls illegal so right that's what they did today today's action applies to calls coming from international sources scammers who originate outside the U. S. the FCC had previously banned spoofed calls from within the U. S. but there'd been a loophole for outside overseas movers so that action the this action today closes that loophole that also applies to fraudulent texts but I'm hearing international calls does this mean the end of all over France if only right I mean unfortunately it's really hard to track down where these spoof calls originate from so it does mean if they're caught they're now more ways that law enforcement can punish the bad guys but it's unlikely to mean that the rebel call problem is been solved why is the government paying so much attention to robo calls right now well you know it's a really irritating problem as you know if you've been bothered by one you've had your life interrupted their father by many inner interrupted you know and and often they're they're threatening they're gonna they're telling you that your social security benefits are about to be halted so they're not only annoying their scamming people out of money more than nine billion dollars a year according to some estimates so there are a lot of different efforts underway the FCC approved a regulation in June that will let the carriers like Verizon and AT T. use apps and other means to block these calls that's the FCC what about Congress well so just this past week the house approved a bill to fight spam calls by four hundred twenty nine to three which is quite a lopsided margin but are are looking you know people argue that more could be done here's another FCC commissioner Jessica rose in Warsaw there is no public process for holding carriers who put this junk on the line accountable there needs to be one I think it should start with the FCC naming and shaming the carrier is responsible for letting these nuisance calls on to the network so great with the rose and were so who's a Democrat on the on the majority Republican commission can convince Republicans to go along remains to be seen but there's a lot of bipartisan support for trying to end the this problem that's N.

Commercial it's actually a more recent version of an earlier Portmanteau adver to`real as an advertisement and editorial which Miriam Webster dates back to nineteen forty six now most of us up late at night or at different periods reads the day only to see things that will quote unquote make our lives easier just portmanteau so commonly used that we just throw it around but what isn't infomercial.

Song Mr Pope he'll or is this something used even by a presidential residential candidate well yes the personnel infomercial was vitamix blender in nineteen forty nine however they didn't really catch on because in the nineteen sixties the Federal Communications Commission F._C._C. and the National Association broadcasters in Aby set limits on the number of commercial minutes allowed per hour program. They also required that all commercials be clearly identified as such. Many of today's infomercials would not meet that. Standard however many advertisers did use cable as an outlet has the restrictions were not applied there. Now things started to turn in nineteen seventy nine when the Justice Department sued the N. A. B. IN U._S.. V National Association of Broadcasters it was an antitrust he trust claim and stated that limitations allowed on commercial minutes per hour artificially inflated prices by restricting the airtime availability then in nineteen eighty-one the F._C._C. Lifted the prohibition on program length advertisements. On radio and this was followed by the dropping its code in Nineteen eighty-two infomercials fully returned to Broadcast T._v.. And nineteen eighty-four after President Ronald Reagan's F._C._C. lifted restriction on the amount of commercial time permitted during the broadcast day Eh over the years in commercials have been used to sell all kinds of products especially expensive items that take more time to justify the price they also have been used for televangelists another Portmanteau psychics get rich quick schemes.

"The Federal Communications Commission for forty five twelfth street southwest Washington DC two oh five five four welcome back this is the Ben Shapiro show well immigration policy continues to be a mass in the United States the conditions on the border yes they are appalling I think we all agree on this but the reason they're appalling is because Democrats will fund the border end because every major democratic presidential candidate has come out in favor staunchly in favor of basically deported no one the only democratic candidate who says that he might deport anybody well there too here's Michael Bennett from Colorado this is make or somebody and Joe Biden says Mike deport somebody which is why Joe Biden remains up in the national polling but the fact is that as the Democrats move ever more radical on immigration it'll be a similar radicalization from the right in response if we actually believe on the right that folks on the left one open borders how do you think we're gonna respond and we're gonna respond by saying OK close the borders because there is no middle ground if we say let some people in and you say what all people in and then you take office and we put no legal barrier see letting all the people in and all the people come in don't think there's a reason why Republicans have been radicalized in on this issue and it is not merely president trump is a pure research poll according to The Washington Post it finds that sixty two percent of Americans say that the country's openness to people from around the world is essential to who we are as a nation that's down six points from September driven entirely by Republicans changing their views since last fall this year Republicans who say America risks losing its identity if it is to open has increased thirteen percentage points to fifty seven percent sure who view the nation's openness to others is essential has the Clinton points to thirty seven percent so just over the last year it shifted from basically a forty seven eight like a forty four forty seven split to forty seven percent of of Republicans thought that openness was essential in forty four percent said that America risks losing its identity if it's to open the truth is both of those things are true open is is essential and we do risk losing our identity if we are to open of course that's true open is in your home is essential want to bring in people who you like and you want those people to enrich your life and make your life better also if you leave your front door unlocked at night and they get robbed that was you being to open those are not to oppose viewpoint queues poll shows the democratic candidates are unchanged in here is the here's the kicker right because people are reading what they want to read from this fall Democrats eighty five eighty six percent of Democrats say that America's openness is essential Republicans read that as you just want to leave the front door unlocked at night that's what you want to read that as and some Republicans are responding by saying okay well you say you want to leave the front door unlocked at night we're gonna go no one now and we think the your gonna make America to open which is true Democrats are going to make America to open because Democrats proposal is that you should have to apply through no legal process there should be no bar on your receiving public funding you should be funded by American taxpayers in terms of healthcare that would be to open and it's not about the people coming in doesn't even suggesting that if you leave your front door open and people come in that those people are necessarily thieves we're talking about you leave cookies on the table in a welcome mat you demand that somebody called the Hokies every night that's gonna be a problem for your household isn't it yes I believe that immigration is bad for the country generally I don't I think immigration is very good for the country generally you don't have to believe that nor to believe that you must have some rational restrictions on immigration the Democrats seem to be running away from that wholesale it's amazing Marc Thiessen has a peace over the New York Post talking about all of this he says that Democrats keep saying nobody is above the law particularly pushing at at president trump but this is no one that is except illegal immigrants this past weekend when the trump administration announced that ice officers would soon begin enforcement actions remove illegal immigrants who've been issued final deportation orders by a federal judge Democrats in the rest of their party delivered a clear unified message hello she said it so appalling it's outside the circle of civilized human behavior the trump administration's cruelty runs bone deep warning ministration will not rip families apart to transport political Ponce points Elizabeth Warren Dick Durbin said the aim is to scare immigrant communities and so he is I just come out here and so he's going to do these rates which is a crime against humanity as Kamel Harris a crime against humanity to the poor people have outstanding warrants Dick Durbin said we are on your side he told activists protesting ice enforcement judge said it's really designed to strike fear into people at a moment when fear is something we've got way too much up in this country so says my decent Democrats were for the rule of law when it comes to the mother probe which didn't find it the president broke the law but they're against the rule of law when it comes to illegal immigrants who have been found by a federal judge to be in violation of US immigration law if you wonder why the trump administration so harsh on immigration and specifically because the Democrats have moved far to the left on immigration and also because let's face it the Obama administration fifth radically about what they were doing on the border so they kept telling the media over and over they were open on immigration at the same time they were reporting a lot of people so it was it was kind of a two prong message sure we're deporting lots of people but also we want to give dreamers full legal status and we're not going to close the border and immigration is an unfettered good and all the rest of this but as these in points out Brock about in the neck this way when he's actually in the White House Obama deported far more illegal immigrants in trump has actually as reported under the Obama administration total ice deportations were about three hundred eighty five thousand each year from two thousand two thousand eleven two thousand ninety two thousand eleven in two thousand twelve four hundred and ten thousand people were deported this is as I don't recall Democrats in Congress accusing Obama of a crime against humanity or actions outside the circle of civilized behavior Chuck Schumer said in two thousand nine illegal immigration is wrong the plain and simple many wonder why Republicans are resonating to the we have to shut the border down now rhetoric that is emanating from the other side get when every choice becomes binary none of the choice of very good and the fact is that in order to fight trump the Democrats have embraced an open borders Jenna and then they should be surprised when people say okay well if the alternative is closed borders I guess close borders it is coming up

"And the Fitbit definitely fit that definition of the perfect present for me and yes I've been warning for about a week now and one of the things that it does is it if you where is your sleep and then when you wake up in the morning it gives you this report of how you slept when you fell off when you walk up and the different stages of sleep that you were in throughout the night and at the in the we can give you an average of how many hours for you average throughout the entire week last week it was just under six was the average and that's with you know like one of them being seven and most of them being under five because that's how much sleep I was getting with the old time slot the nine to eleven o'clock not a good situation to be in I can't believe I did it for two years and so now we'll see hopefully I'll be able to bring some more energy to the show more will be able to listen it's a good development and we're glad to have the bread on when taking your calls and producing the program six five one nine eight nine five eight five five we've been talking about amongst other things the op ed in The Washington Post by Mitt Romney senator elect incoming senator who is posing himself or a rain himself to be a foil for Donald Trump to some degree in his new position in the Senate to take on the role people describe it as some trying to step into the role that John McCain had prior to his passing last year let's talk to Mike in Farmington walking the program my call Walker our parts around or maybe pose a question or two zero are you know one of your earlier callers did mention lobbies where are you but I kind of think that train her go up the station and for better or for worse you know trump is really trying to change the political dynamic in the country and bush people that supported him in his point you can residential on I don't know how many of those are going away the other part of that is who are the score sheet we've all that maybe could have gone either way they might of order for Hillary but the second hour of arthritis trump guy but here's the here's really the bottom line of what I see is going on right now this impasse work the shut down yeah the twenty twenty election because of trout backs down right all this political capital it's gone yeah now I get pulled over there then you got a new young got the Democratic Party that are you know they have some capital as well all she needs all why it really is it really is an existential moment for both sides I mean who they they both side we talked about this is in our last show of twenty eighteen and the fact that this standoff is shut down is it's been the way it has manifest in the way it's come about is in such a way that there is only going to be a winner and a loser and it's going to be absolute there's going to be in there is no scenario where by both sides can claim some kind of victory one of them is going to fold and the other is going to win your truck backs down he's done I mean it's good to start I don't see any for merry all where if you don't like your wall it's all over go on and on the same token there is no scenario where the Democrats give him what he wants and they don't face masks of electoral consequences and push back from their base saw honestly I don't see how this resolved and that this is the great fascination I appreciate the calls always Mike this is the the the fascinating moment that we find ourselves in this piece here Bloomberg that gets into a Congress returns to Washington Thursday tomorrow morning with a new democratic house Majority gaining leverage over president Donald Trump and the partial government shutdown first on the list of problems to solve does he said to be elected house speaker when lawmakers convene at noon Thursday will guide the Democrats opposition to trump possibly leading to impeachment Senate Republicans will have a wider margin of control in their chamber meaning easier confirmation of trump's executive branch nominees and judicial picks including any Supreme Court vacancy that may emerge my prediction this from the author of at the Bloomberg more dysfunction then there should be unfortunately and that's actually represent a Peter king of New York the first test of the new dynamic and wash it may come Wednesday one below sea and Senate democratic leader Chuck Schumer have a three PM meeting with trump that of course already occurred a Senate majority or minority whip Dick Durbin will attend the meeting as well Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell they talk more about the meeting and they talk about the border wall and different tweets that the different posturing that the two sides put together and then this is the Smithsonian this is where it gets to the meat of it in terms of the shutdown Smithsonian Institution museums and the national zoo in Washington close Wednesday for lack of funds the Federal Communications Commission will suspend most operations Thursday no longer taking consumer complaints and holding review of proposed mergers nearly fourteen hundred workers at the environment protection agency were furloughed on Saturday and federal workers will Mr January eleventh paycheck unless the government re opens now the question I have and I really I can't even begin to imagine well I can begin to imagine but I don't have a high degree of confidence in in my answer as to how this is going to play out is the public actually going to feel the pain of the shutdown of angel like how much does it affect your life that Smithsonian Institution museums and the national zoo in Washington are closed how much does it affect your life but the Federal Communications Commission can't take your consumer complaint now things like reviewing proposed mergers and what not you know those that could definitely be a problem for people but I can be a problem for me secondly from for you secondly from for voters generally it's gonna be a problem for whatever companies and its stakeholders in those companies are find themselves in that situation and the problem that highlights more than the dysfunction of Washington DC is the fact that such things have such things require review by the federal bureaucracy two companies to associations off of individuals who consent to relationship can't actually engage in it unless the government says okay that's what that highlights so maybe maybe instead of re opening the Federal Communications Commission we just change the law so that people can just go about their business merging with whomever they like without government interference at any rate it'll be interesting to see how how this plays out you know whether or not people are going to feel any sort of pain and there for and with this is the thing is alternately because of the dynamic that Mike articulated forest where by the this is this is trump pushing his chips all in he is standing up at the table right now he is all in and he's either going to win or he's gonna walk away the loser and not just on this issue but for twenty twenty four his presidency it's all on the line with this moment and the stakes are similarly high on the left and so ultimately you neither neither side has a reason to give in absent substantial political pressure from the outside so where is that pressure going to come from I don't know I it it seems to me that the all this hoopla all this kabuki theater regarding government shut downs is just that it's manufactured nobody actually cares so I don't know the any pressure is going to manifest what anybody's going to have any reason to but we might end up with indefinitely shut down federal government would that be fascinating let's talk to ray in Minneapolis welcome to rubber Hey I I am I think it's pretty obvious I there's a third scenario here I think the Democrats do what they say they're going to do and send up a bill without the funding I think trump does what he says he's going to do in the middle of that and then I think the Republican Party does what they always do and bait buckle from the media pressure and help the Democrats override the veto and then I think in the end of the Republican Party not trump tower the Democrats you might be on to something wow yeah but I I can't I can't I can't imagine it going any other ways but I just look at all these people great Democrats are we do what they say they're gonna do travel like we do what he says he's going to do and the Republicans always do what they always do so if I if I can venture into an area where I never go which is assuming that trump is playing for D. strategical tracks one might even suggest that this was his plan all along that he knew that that he's banking on Republicans squishing hi I don't know I can't think of anything else I really can't and I wanna give trump some credit and I and I just don't have any faith in the Republican Party to stand behind them still I got a I just see them all in one way or the other I appreciate the call in the remark once I write yeah I I gotta hand it to raise that is that seems like a highly credible possibility that the Republic because who's more likely to feel the pressure president trump or your friendly neighborhood senator your friendly neighborhood Congress member they're much more likely to feel the pressure and to lack the support required to indoor the pressure it especially if they find themselves in swing districts purple districts your CD to your CD three at some quite the quite the little

"This is the Ben Shapiro show coming up for you this hour, a little bit later on in the hour will be joined by the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. The SEC agit pie. We'll be talking about he distinction between platforms, and publishers will be talking about net neutrality, and many of the issues that plague our common spaces. We'll also be talking about whether President Trump is trying to wag the dog on, Ron and all of this. But we begin this hour with this conversation, his broken out over at Harvard, if you've been following all day, the controversy is basically, this cashew was parkland survivor, and has become a prominent voice in favor of school safety. He's also passionately defended the second minute, he was admitted to Harvard on the basis of academics, as well as his activism. But his academics would have done it. Fifteen fifty on the SAT's five point four GPA, graduated number two in his class. Marjory stoneman. Douglas high school is admitted to Harvard. And now he's been uninvited to Harvard. They have rejected his admission on the basis that when he was sixteen years old. He was a Google doc with some of his. Supposed friends from school, and they were saying things out shock one another and he dropped the N word a bunch of times some racist disgusting things he then promptly apologized. His apologized publicly is written letters to the admissions committee. He's talked to them via his letters about how he feels he has grown since then, none of it mattered. The left is triumphant today as cashew, who is now seventeen years old. I believe eighteen years old as he has now been ousted from Harvard amidst accusations, that he is a brutal vicious racist. Kyle joins us online right now. Thanks so much for joining appreciate it. Thanks so much for having me on. So why don't we start with this? Let's start with your sixteen and you're in this Google doc with some of your friends from school. And obviously now everyone has seen many people have seen the actual Google doc, which is replete with you making some pretty terrible. References. Pretty awful things using racist slurs. What was in your mind that you did all that? New york. That crew basically idiotic Indiana kid thing things and. You know. Data most shocking thing. And, you know, I wish I could take it back, but I can't. And I think when people might be missing the same document I make cow was terrible antisemitic jokes and the runway. Gonna sitting on basically every week my parents Jewish there. Isreaeli long history of half my family being slaughtered in the holocaust. Now, the folks who decided to out, you, too many members of the media, and this happened a couple of months ago, and it was reported on by members of the media, including folks over at the Daily Beast, the folks who decided to out you on this fellow members of your class. How did they get a hold of this material where they just Google doc? Yeah. I mean, I actually happen two years ago so months before the shooting, I just went back and look for whatever they could find, and then released it, and in the same, I think, messages, they were leasing it. They said their intention was not only to malign me care to give me rescinded from Harvard, and, you know, the craziest thing that same people who are negative docs and equally egregious terrible things. Defense defensive, what I said, there's, there's is indefensible when it kinda shows how. Happen. And the craziest thing has been after they publish this former classmates that I don't. associated with having talked to a year and a half you know when the craziest thing was that the far less teamed up with the alt-right destroying rescinded from harvard so because time and time again i have hit the alt-right condemning every point i called him out so the fact is that the folks who are coming after you and seeking to destroy you obviously there is a lot of political motivation for folks have been following online this is fairly obvious from the folks who are coming after you does it one thing i've been saying that this does lead to people simply not entering public life the fact is that in my opinion if you had not been a vocal second amendment supporter after parkland shooting that this never comes up you probably get in harvard anyway on the basis of your academics but nobody's digging through your stuff to try and go after you to harvard i would assume i think you're absolutely right i mean i never wanted that i'm not a politician an actor not an entertainer only reason i'm here i'm doing this interview right now Is horrific thing that happened at my school. And how been fighting everyday thin to make sure that our schools are safe and the last and kind of the media gone into this point where they can't attack my second arguments that are going to try to destroy me as a character. Malign me attacking the argument, well with all of this, you write a letter to the Harvard admissions committee, so they send you a letter may twenty fourth in which they ask you to justify yourself. And you send this, long letter maybe can sum up, what the general point of the letter was in what you said to the admissions committee that apparently was insufficient. No. When, when they asked me to accounting, I did just that I apologize unequivocally attached all the documents that the for over and over again and explain the situation and said that look, I know what it did was wrong. But I wanna make this, right? And I know forgiveness isn't giving. It's earned and I want to do everything power to make this, right. That's why the second I saw this not because I had to the right thing to do. Because I'm trying to right this wrong. And in addition to that, I sent an Email to the Harvard, office, versity people in charge. Stuff. And I said, look, I know and I'm sorry, but how makes his right. What can I do to make this nice? And I saw them for guidance. I asked him for guidance on what to do in this gap here on. They responded. They said, I think they said we appreciate your thoughtful reflections, and look forward to connecting upon your matriculation fall, twenty twenty and then, of course, matriculation was rejected since they've now said, that they're not going to admit you so plans, what do you expect to be able to do after all this is over? I mean you're taking a gap year and then what he planned to do. So we're going to continue focusing on school safety. I think one of the biggest things right now is how how what does this mean for through our education system and other kids, it, it's kind of like Harvard to starting someone pin row at all. And that past terrible action Forevermark. You irredeemable. It's shocking, because a lot of people don't know, but harvest founded in sixteen thirty six. By slave owners, and it has a long history. With assaulting segregation was biggest misogynist, sections of anti-semitism, any, if any to understand rose, it should be Harvard. It's look towards as kinda pinnacle of higher education. But, you know, if according to Harvard past defined our future, then I put the Dresden Harbison inherently racist institution. But like I said, I don't I don't believe that I think that just like people institutions wrote and seduces can change things. So it's not really about me at this point. It's about. Weather. Whether we live in society where there's a pass passwords forgiveness or making prior mistakes, when you are child forever brand you as irredeemable. So right now, I genuinely don't know can happen with me. I gave a lot of scholarships on Harvard. But, you know, I'm torn all options for what to do now. You know, it's pretty fascinating. I've seen that a lot of your critics today, people who are out there defending Harvard. They have yet to articulate a standard by which they would admit you back into polite society. They basically said that Harvard did the right thing, but they can't explain exactly what repentance would look like they can't explain exactly what you would have to do in order to demonstrate that you have they are not racist and that you don't believe the things that he wrote in that thread, or that, that was just trolling as opposed to racism. I it seems like a pretty shifting double standard, obviously. And obviously Kyle. I wish invest in we're all out here praying for you, because I think this is an unfair head. I think this. Attempts by people who are badly motivated to come after you, what you said, as you have said yourself is inexcusable unjustifiable, and yet that is never going to be enough for people who simply wish to destroy people who are on the other side of the there's no room for forgiveness growth har-. Kyle. I appreciate your time on the program and keep your head up. Thanks so much on a second to a little bit more of this. Because again, I think this is just it's an ingredient in agreed move by Harvard University here. Kyle there sounds that overwhelmed. That's not surprising believe is seventeen years old. He's now been through a, a media to NAMI over a private Google. Doc, you wrote two years ago, and that after he became public figure thanks to the worst mass shooting at a school in American history. So, yeah, I it's, it's, it's been good ten for Kyle well done media. You guys are definitely yeoman Yeomen for freedom and decent job. We'll talk a little bit more about that in just a second. I what if buying a house is about was like buying a timeshare you show up with a herd of other people who also. Wanted the free gifts,.

"Let me put it to you that he can read it and draw your own conclusion. David beta B does professor university Alabama. Stock about FDR. FDR's war against the press during the new deal later World War Two, for example. At its inception in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the Federal Communications Commission reduce the license renewal period for stations from three years to only six months. Why this allowed Roosevelt maxima thirty over the life and death of radio stations. Meanwhile, Roosevelt tapped Herbert petty as secretary of the FCC petty had overseen radio for Roosevelt and his nineteen thirty two campaign after his appointment he worked in tandem with the DNC to handle radio matters, quote unquote. What about the networks and local stations and you have to remember radio was even bigger than it is today. Was bigger than TV? He did not take long for broadcasters to get the message NBC announced that it was limiting broadcasts contrary to the policies of the United States, government, CBS, Feis, president, Henry Bello said that no broadcast would be permitted over the Columbia broadcasting system that in any way was critical of any policy of the administration, he elaborated that the Columbia system was at the disposal of president Roosevelt and his administration and they were permit. Nope. Broadcasts that did not have his approval. But listen to this. This just shows you the lies that we get from Biden the lies that we get from Sam Donaldson today, defending Jim Acosta the lies that, that come out of Jim Acosta's mouth. Roosevelt's manipulation and reach went well, beyond the nascent broadcast media, the profession explained that Roosevelt's intimidation efforts reached their apogee in the hands of the special Senate committee on lobbying, the president indirectly, recruited Senator Hugo black democrat Alabama, a zealous, effective, new deal loyalist as chair. And by the way, his first nominee, he would become his first nominee is associate Justice to the supreme court and black was a lawyer for the clan in Alabama. Had been. So here he is a Senator the black committee undertook, a wide ranging investigation into anti new deal critics, including journalists Senator black was granted access to tax returns dating back to one thousand nine hundred twenty five of such critics as David Lawrence on the United States news. He then demanded that it's target's turn over the private. Telegraph sound familiar, Mr. Nadler. Turnover their private telegrams, and the telegraph companies let the committee search copies of all incoming and outgoing telegrams for the first nine months of nineteen thirty five one Western Union refused on privacy grams..

"So they don't want to get involved. Well, other people will tell you. They don't wanna stop rip off phone calls because they make a lot of money providing services to ripoffs who, then phone call you. I think sometimes that's true. Not every company. But I think at sometimes true. So what the Federal Communications Commission said is you don't need our permission and you don't need your customers permission to block phone calls that are robo calls and sales call. Well the way they make these phone calls now. Your phone company can know instantly. Because here's what happens they send out then they sent out a million or two million calls, all at once a computer, but they come from the same Bank of phone numbers. They know that. So when those phone numbers, I are coming out the phone calls. The phone companies can just block them so couple. True. And that's it. And then they got to run up somewhere else, coupla get through. That's it. So now they can actually do that. You and I may finally get some relief. This doesn't say they have to do it, but I'm going to be one of the things where there's gonna be some that are dragging their feet for costs or they just don't believe in it. Or they want to sell services to the bad guys. But the good guys that would be you and me. Don't want these calls. So when we find out the phone company acts no longer if you subscribe to phone company acts, you seldom get those phone calls, you're going to drop your phone company Z and over the phone company. So this is very, very good news. It's gonna take a little bit a little bit of free market in there. But it's also the government getting out of the way and saying, yes, you can do the work. So that's great. Kirk. Dr Pepper has some lawsuits over its water its bottled water. Let's it goes under the name. Oh. Feel mineral spring water. Apparently, it looks like add more arsenic than what is legally allowed, so guy sued local California guys sued. Here's what we know Kirk and Dr Pepper shutdown that factory to see what's going on. That's good. Now, let's see if the guy actually has lawsuit if it's real or not. But that's how a lot of these. Laws regulations are set up the government doesn't want to enforce them..

"Move lock it at Andrew and Todd dot com. Yesterday, the market was really weird that was four and the NASDAQ was down one hundred twenty that explains that there were rumors of antitrust actions against Amazon, Google and Facebook and actions by the Federal Trade Commission, and by the house oversight committee's against big tech and big tech took it on the new, I told amulet down eighty six points. That's why the NASDAQ was down hundred twenty this morning. The SNP ten the NASDAQ is up twenty four and the Dow is up ninety six in England, the FTSE is up a little bit Germany. It's up percent light crude is down to fifty to sixty two all is good in the world. I mean, we're living in the best of times for economics and the tariffs that president. Trump put on which get in the market. Got everyone going crazy and have oversold another buying will happen. But in the meantime, they sold their stocks, they bought bonds, the interest rate on bonds went down to two point. Oh, eight. That's not the straight, you get on your home the interest rate on which home loans are calculated. Don't wait another day, Andrew and Todd dot com. Let me talk about this antitrust story, if you don't mind, but I will go back to my, my call in the Washington Post on the front page Theresa man. Donald Trump continuing to meet right now. Two stories from the Washington Post Facebook Google and other tech giants faced antitrust investigation by house lawmakers and the New York Times antitrust troubles snowball. Protect giants and lawmakers. Join in. This is long overdue. By the way, a look a hard look at what to do about social media. I'm primarily concern about the export to tala -tarian regimes of tracking technology via social media. You like a new column today about the export of the internet from the People's Republic of China to the rest of the world wide way and all that stuff. And all that stuff is very important. I am primarily concerned that we not export our technology to countries that will use it like nuclear weapons. I told a senior figure in the in the world of Silicon Valley who had invited wanted to talk about this because I've been on this soapbox, a long time, when I had the lowest watched show in the history of MSNBC by the resistance, I spend most of my weekend show, talking about, we got to look at, what are we going to do about Google, apple Facebook, Amazon? Twitter. What are we gonna do? I don't know. And I've always advocated the same thing an attorney general select commission on social media regulation. I don't want the FTC to us. It's like the, the FCC tried not now. The FTC is the Federal Trade Commission that a slowdown for the Steelers fans now and the FCC is the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC is one of the best run organizations in town. Run by friend of mine pie. And he's the one that killed net neutrality. Thank goodness because that old agency was trying to use old statute to regulate a brand new thing called the internet. It doesn't work that way they don't have the regulatory authority to do what they did. It's like the EPA using the Clean Air, Act of nineteen Seventy-three signed by Richard Nixon as amended by George H W Bush in nineteen Ninety-one to regulate climate change. They did. It doesn't make sense because congress didn't pass. A legislated regime regulation. But we, we have to do something like the railroads in the eighteen seventies, there's too much market concentration, so you can go out and just shoot at with the trust thority of the department of Justice. And that may be the only way to go. I think it's actually preferable to what is happening, the FTC. Legislating against Amazon. That's just nuts. Those people are fine regulators of golf clubs and hot stove and anything that can go, bad cribs. And that's what the Federal Trade Commission does best consumer Product Safety Commission as well. In fact, the FTC ought to be investigating what are called. Griffin packs big story on this yesterday. Jayme Garrity jimgeraghty indispensable national. But how many Griffin packs out there, they tell you there that tea party express, and they raise millions of dollars of which ninety percent stay in the pockets of consultants? There's a lot for the FTC and the consumer Product Safety Commission to do. They can't regulate Facebook. Anna von Google and Twitter. They're not built for it. So I am going to hope to persuade attorney general bar to name a special commission like attorney general Meese did about pornography back in the day. And nobody listened to the attorney general MRs commission on pornography, much to the detriment of our society. But if I were the Queen king of the fourth, not the Queen Earl. I would say, fifteen people big tech gets three to four government agencies each get one sentence over your smartest person big law. Send us four academia centers, four in the attorney general's staff it with the head of the antitrust division is very smart guy. And they're going to report to me in six months. What the thing to do is now congress. I don't mind at the house. Democrats are looking to applaud him. I wanted the congress to do this under the Republicans. I asked Pauline about it. I asked Mitch McConnell about it. Paul Ryan said he's not eager to rush in with a free market is working. It's not working. It's dysfunctional. Because this is an entirely new thing with market concentration. And I don't know what to do. I don't know if they should be broken up. I don't know if they should be regulated the thing I tend to think that we need export controls, but I'm not really sure I really, I think this is one of those rare moments where a blue ribbon commission could actually work, and I would let every stakeholder and as I said, big Tex and best and brightest. Go get the general the way to do that is to mandate, the general counsels of Amazon, and Google and Twitter and Facebook beyond the Commissioner. Nobody else you're not in the room, unless you the general counsel's air, then, yes, big law big while represents everybody. So, yes, the chairman of firms the head of intellectual property departments, and then you go to academia, people like my friend, Tom Ballard do nothing. But think about this sort of thing, and then I trust experts, and, and then you go to. I don't want I don't what consumers and users, they don't have any idea about how the algorithms work and what they're sending the China, don't know that. But there are some non-academic specialists in this world like Franklin four, who wrote public intellectuals role without mind, there ought to be twelve to fifteen people with the assistant attorney general for the trust division running it. And that's what I think, and I'm sticking with my story. Pete. Bitta judge having an MSNBC town hall with Chris Matthews last night. Had this to say about extreme weather in the midwest and climate change cut number five. This is an existential issue. And I think we gotta treat it like a security issue moral issue, and it's an issue of intergenerational Justice because each generation in the future is being made worse off, if we don't deal with them. So what can we do? Well, we definitely got to have a carbon price dividend carbon tax and dividend, call it. What you want. We need to do it in order to get our economy to be closer to carbon-neutral. We've got to at least quadruple federal RND in renewable energy, and energy storage. Now we got undertake building retrofits, which, by the way will create a lot of jobs. In addition to making us more energy efficient, and we need to put climate at the center of our diplomacy, so that other countries are being held to account for how much they're part of the solution. There's one other thing that's not being talked about so much. We just how rural America places like the central valley could be a huge part of the solution. You know there are some estimates that through better soil management soil, could capture a level of carbon equivalent to the entire global transportation industry. And if we let rule American. Oh, that they could be one of the most important parts of the solution in instead of just being feeling like they're being told that they're part of the problem, we might be able to break down some of the resistance, especially to moment when rural America is beginning to realize, because of this extreme weather that, where I live is making it hard to see whether it's even worth planting soybeans here, for example, because some of the fields are, so waterlogged after a lot of extreme weather, you know, they have the most to lose. But the point is all of us need to be part of a national project to deal with climate through good policy. Yes. But through everything that the private public academic and social sector can bring to bear on the issue. May you see what, what mayor pizza? There is not sound crazy. He didn't say extreme broad. There was caused by climate change. He said that extreme weather is causing people to think about climate. That's not crazy. He didn't go new green deal on us. He did talk about what John Delaney, another democrat talks about him, which Republicans should be talking about, which is trapping. CO two in the earth if we want to slow. Oh, the release of CO two, which is Mark thing, and it might make money. That's why I think people judge is actually the greatest threat to Republicans, the as the charisma of intelligence. And I mean, a lot of intelligence, but then he does fall into some traps, the traps of the far left cut number six people talking about reparations. I think it's time for us to have this discussion and there's a proposal in congress called HR forty. It's named after the forty acres, and you'll promise that was made but not kept to, to former slaves, and it proposes that we set up a commission to look at how we could establish a fair and reasonable way to go about reparations. I believe that we have to do this, for this reason, you can't just have racist policies for one generation to another all the way up to this present day and replace them with maybe less racist policies or neutral policies, and expect everything to just get better, the generational wealth gap for black.
