James Freeman: A Popular Media Defense of the President Collapses

"But we'll get into that later the national archives Another issue where USA Today in my view was lying and other media outlets are lying And people are regurgitating what they say is that a president and a vice president staying in the same position when it comes to declassification I've been getting this question over and over again especially since a phony USA Today article appeared I want you to stick with me And I want to give kudos to James Freeman of The Wall Street Journal James Freeman I've known his parents for 40 years It's not that I'm in touch with him all the time For 40 years this first position I held in the Reagan administration I went into a building I was 22 23 years old And there was James father Neil I'm assuming it's the same family And he's got it exactly right And he says a popular media defense of the president collapses He's completely naked they say One nice thing about being president Joe Biden is that sometimes media outlets will make arguments on your behalf that you're not even willing to attempt on your own Witness journalists responding to the news of government secrets casually strewn around Biden's property Some have been suggesting Biden received significant authority over classified documents while serving as vice president During the Obama administration There are many reasons why mister Biden doesn't seem to find this argument as compelling as his friends in the media do Now the latest discoveries had his Delaware home seemed to confirm that the argument is irrelevant They also suggest a much greater legal danger for this president

Why Meta Allowing Trump Back Onto Platforms Is a Trap

"Isn't it coincidental nation that yesterday? Just as meta said, hey, come on back. We'll restore you to Facebook and Instagram. At that very moment, there was a news story leaked that Trump planned to go back on those platforms and would dump truth social. Truth social, of course, the social media platform that he founded and supported Devin Nunes runs it now. And many of us are on truth social. So the rumor they were floating around was that Trump would come back on Twitter and Facebook and Instagram and truth social would be no more. First of all, not true. The president made it very clear that he's quite pleased with how he is able to reach people on true social. But the fact that he had to issue the statement in response to the fake news story shows what they were trying to do. They were trying to torpedo his independent voice. They were trying to torpedo the business model. Because all they needed to do was flowed out the ether, the fact that Trump will be going to the other platforms and off of his own, it would crater their business model. And he's too smart a businessman to do that, certainly. And that's the other reason why, you know, in conjunction with this, he's not going to leave truth social and if he goes back on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, he's diluting his message and therefore hurting the true social business. If he's posting the same thing all places, why would you go to something like truth social if you were not already there? That is the big selling point for truth social.

Will Hild: Why Are Companies Practicing 'Woke Capitalism?'

"Are you encountering a sort of the path of least resistance by a lot of these decision makers in these big Fortune 500 companies? That's exactly right because the problem is that even though these asset managers are managing other people's money in other words, it's pension holders. It's a university endowment. When they go and meet with corporate leaders, boards of directors, CEOs, COOs, they represent large portions of these companies shares. So they have to worry that their largest shareholder is upset about something, whether they like it or not, whether it's good for business or not, they have to play ball. And this, by the way, I know your viewers care a lot about this trend of quote unquote woke capitalism. Why is suddenly every corporation, you know, getting involved with BLM or pushing diversity equity and inclusion nonsense, or even in 2021, getting involved in fights over election legislation in states. ESG is the reason for that because they have to answer to people like Larry Fink at BlackRock and just take Exxon as a concrete example two years ago, he helped elect three radical environmentalists to the board of that company to push them out of the oil and gas industry and into unreliable unaffordable quote unquote green technologies. So if you take an example like that, all of these corporate leaders see that. And they see Larry pushing, you know, raises onto the boards of directors of these companies and they know that could be them next if they don't play ball. And Larry's been vocal about this. He spoke in an interview publicly in 2017 with The New York Times that he that he believes behaviors have to be forced to change. And BlackRock, they are forcing behaviors. And he was talking in terms of corporate governance. And literally race and sex quotas on boards of directors. So this is not this explains a lot of why we've seen these corporations going, well,

A Prayer to Combat Unhealthy Comparison

"If we compare Jesus ministry against the world's via success, most would consider him a failure. Jesus had only 12 disciples, all of which deserted him when he was arrested to be crucified. Matthew 26 56. He was accused of breaking the law by the most esteemed rollers and leaders in his culture. And he doubted death reserved for our criminal naked and exposed on a wooden crossbow people spit on him. Matthew 26 67, 27, 35. Nothing about his ministry screamed success. Then he was raised to life and ascended to heaven leave him behind, sick, unhealed, and lost people to be ministered to by his rebellious misfit group of disciples. Luke 24 51. Nothing thwarted Christ's obedience to the father. He knew his ministry was not a failure despite how it looked when held up against the world's stipulations for success. The greatest thing I admire about the leaders as serve alongside at my church is the way they continuously point me and the people they lead back to Jesus. So yes, let's learn what we can from the great leaders that surround us and the people got places in our lives, but less guard against using others as a benchmark of our success. God has uniquely placed a calling on each of our lives. We don't have to compare or compete with others to hear well done. We only need to be faithful. What looks like a failure when comparing ourselves to others, just may be the greatest thing we accomplished for the kingdom. For that reason, we have to keep our ads fixed on Jesus. Let's pray. Jesus. Thank you for the people in our lives who grow, shape, and sharpness into your image. Lord, I know you created us to teach one another and learn from each other. Jesus forgive us when we cross the line by trying to find our worth best sizing ourselves up to others. And what the world defines a successful. You alone are the source of our worth. And you loved us so much that while you were dying a gruesome death for us, you considered the joy of being with God in your children forever in heaven to help you endure. Lord, I pray you would give us wisdom to see when the things you call us to don't look like success in this life. Lord remind us and give us the strength to keep our ads fixed on you. In Jesus name. Amen.

"The rule of the day we were in a meeting room with me and my team and we were talking about not everybody on the team, but just my marketing guy and the warehouse manager, we were talking about the goals of the company, the mission and vision of the company. And one thing that stood out in every single vision mission statement and also our goals is that you have to put God first. With everything we put guy first. I tell everybody that worked for me. When you gotta put guy first and whatever you do, how do you think you got this job right now? It's because of God. It ain't because of be Tatum. I would love to take out a credit and say, I'm so great and I'm so amazing. That's why I have enough money to pay your salary and pay out your 100% benefits and all this other stuff. No, it ain't me. It's because God is blessed me to get to this point for me to bless other people. See, this is the thing about success. And I'm going to go on and tell y'all about the news because I got a lot to talk about. But here's the thing about success. You got to understand where your source comes from. The reason that people get in trouble and they begin to fail in life because they forget where the foundation is. They go off and God give them all these blessings and they run off and act like they ain't done nothing for them. You can not do that and be successful in this day and age in my personal opinion. And then success is not just money in the bank. Success is a healthy life, healthy relationships, a peace of mind. All of those things are related to success. It's not just money. There's a whole bunch of people to whole lot of money that's attempting to commit suicide.

Donald Trump Allowed Back on Facebook and Instagram

"Ladies and gentlemen Gemma ladies, welcome back to the oxidative show, the big question is what Donald Trump get back on Facebook and Instagram? Let me tell you this, he better, if he thinks he's going to have a chance to win as the president of the United States of America, he needs to get into the conversation on social media. I really do believe so. And if he does, I'll tell you this. Him doing this will help or hurt him. One of the two things will happen to him. It's either going to help him. Or he's going to be hurt over it. Because if you get on air and he does well and he's presidential and he gains the minds and hearts of people all over the country, he will win. If he get on there bashing and talking about desantis and then that's going to be a nail in the coffin. For Donald Trump. So I'm hoping that he gets back on Facebook and Instagram and post I mean, I love to see some of his stuff come up and he'll be able to write some wrongs. And I'm not saying wrongs that he did. I'm saying wrongs that they claim he did. He'll be able to set the record straight because they said all kinds of stuff about Donald Trump. about it. And 99% of it was bullcrap. But he'll be able to fight against those things as they occur and be ready and prepared for the election. I would argue that social media was one of the main reasons how Donald Trump ended up getting elected and not one of the main reasons in that atmosphere. How he was able to get elected because he was able to put out the truth, why everybody else lying, he was telling the unadulterated truth to the people. And I think that was absolutely amazing.

Putting the Focus on the Human Race

"Two things I want to talk about. One is that a Donald Trump is now allowed to get back on to Facebook, Instagram, and I want to see if Donald Trump will actually utilize those things. Before I talk about Donald Trump at Facebook and Instagram, I want to wrap up what I said in the last segment. I hope that it came across properly because in my mind it makes total sense, but I don't know if what I said projected the sense that it makes in my mind. All I'm saying is that we should focus on unity. We should focus on being the human race. We should not be focusing on all these little clicks and groups that we put ourselves in because then that makes people look at each other and hate each other for no reason. You are not necessarily a sum of decisions that you make. And I hope that that range true to people who are Christians, you are not the sum of your past decisions. Because every decision that you have made up until this point, while you're currently listening to me, we're past decisions. And those decisions can be washed clean by the blood of Jesus Christ. So who you are and what you do, what you have done are two different things. And I like to separate the person from the action. So I'm saying that to say, stop pigeonholing yourself saying, I'm gay, or I'm black, or I'm Asian. I'm this. I'm that. Just be a good person.

Is the W.E.F. 'Utterly Atheistic'? Larry Taunton Weighs In

"To Larry Taunton. Larry, you are touching on so many important things, right? This globalist agenda, this idea, you said it's assumed that God is not part of the picture. It's a secular view. Their post conversation. I mean, for sure, but I mean, look, the elites have been for decades, but the point is that here they're converging on this place. And what's interesting is when you ask the guy, okay, so you see ethical problems. What do you base that on? Where do you get ethics from? And this is the fundamental question. If you don't believe in the God of the Bible, where are you coming from? And people, what interests me is that people know there's such a thing as right and wrong. They just don't know where they get that from. And they're now willing to probe whether it has any validity. They just will quote that because it's clear. Well, the lord has written his law upon the hearts of men. And my argument for God's existence is not just the design argument, the external argument, but that if you're Stevie Wonder and you can not see a creation, God has not conspired against you because he has written his law up on your heart. That's Romans two 15. That's the argument to the grace effect. That was the whole of my argument with Christopher Hitchens, that let's set aside the design argument. Christopher, you know that God is real. It's why the Bible says that you're a fool to say that there is no God. Says it twice in the psalms. And the reason for that is because it is encoded into you. You have to deny you have to suppress what your whole being is screaming. So it takes someone who is especially smart to construct silly arguments like the string theory and multiverses and this kind of stuff in order to convince themselves that there is no God.

It's possible that people are tired of 80 year old senators. What do you think? Are there some long shots? What about Virginia and with some Sears? Tim kaine is like the blandest man. Nice guy, but he's the blandest man in America. When some Sears is the opposite of that, what do you think? Right. Well, you've named, by the way, some great potential candidates, but I think if you look at the presidential battleground states in 2024, there's 5. You look at out west, of course, Arizona and Nevada are going to be battleground states that Biden narrowly won in 2020. Then you've got Wisconsin, as you mentioned, you've got Pennsylvania and Michigan. There's an open state in Michigan Cassandra staben announced her retirement. Those are all states with the right candidate. We can win in a presidential battleground type year. So I think 24 is shaping up to be a very good year for Republicans. Now, we thought we had a better outcome coming in 22. I understand this woman. I hate to see what happened. But I really, and there's reasons to be just quantifiably optimistic right now in 24, looking at the map. However, you can't fall in love with that map as we talked about because we're running a formidable Democrat to understand how to win in a red state. Well,

"All right, mister secretary, one of the things you put in here that I did not anticipate seeing. And I don't know that many people will pick up on it on page one 79. China is not part of the intermediate range nuclear forces agreement. We know that Russia violates it. China is not a party to it. You write quote, we will one day need capabilities of our own installed, meaning intermediate range nuclear missiles within reach of the Chinese periphery. That's a big deal. Do you expect pushback on that? Goodness. From who, here, from D.C. establishment. The blob. From the blob, almost certainly. The central thesis that I talk about with the Chinese Communist Party is it's been a one way ratchet. They do something we bow down. They move, we turn the other cheek. They're aggressive. We tell them please don't do that again. And they just keep rolling. So the central thesis is this concept of being reciprocal. Just we should behave the way they do. They now are capable of using their boats intermediate range and long-range missiles to strike things that matter an awful lot to the United States of America. And these intermediate range missiles are important for lots of reasons. We don't have time to speak to it. The book talks about it a little bit. But yes, I'm confident that we will find nations that want to host our intermediate range facilities and that we will do so. This will be the way that we gain the deterrence, the very deterrence that Ronald Reagan came to understand in Europe in the last century. We will have to execute to make sure to protect America from the threat of the Chinese Communist Party in this century.

"You've been there. I mean, you were in the trenches. You were the CIA director, you were the Secretary of State. You know a thing or two about a skiff. You know a thing or two about classified documents and government secrets. I don't even understand how it's possible for these many documents to be in the private residences of former government officials. Can you help us understand why the national archives doesn't have a for lack of a better metaphor, a library, take the book out of the library system. If you take classified documents out, you got to account for them. I mean, I think most of us don't even understand how this could have happened. So for the very most compartmented secret level documents, they are numbered their catalog they are tracked. My guess is that none of the documents that weren't any of these places were those documents. I don't know that. I don't know the facts. So for part of it, there is a Colorado library called catalog. That is appropriate. The simple volume of classified documents that I dealt with as CI director or that the presidents would have dealt with. I was just staggering. And they are in the residence. I had, in my home, as the CI director, there was a skiff. Inside of that skiff, there was a safe when I finished reading classified documents. I either return them to the handlers or put them in the safe before I lock the safe, lock the door, somehow that just didn't happen sufficiently. And I suppose any of us can get it wrong. I suppose any of us could put a document the wrong notebook carried out, but then when you find it, get it right back. And I'll tell you what else is troubling politically. When the president of the United States says I have no regrets. That bothers me. I promise you. If someone finds out that I held documents in the wrong place or I did something wrong two years ago or when I was in the House of Representatives on the intelligence committee, I will regret it deeply. I will have put information at risk. And we have service members all across the world, CA operatives all across the world. We need to protect them. There's a reason for most of this classification. And we ought to do our best. When we get it wrong, just own it, admit it. Get on with your life.

Even Trump said, Pence hasn't done anything wrong in his life. Leave the guy alone. This weekend, president Trump is going to be in South Carolina right him off at your own peril. Because guess what? Guess what? He's coming back. There's just no way. Have you seen these polls? Emerson and Harvard and USA Today, he beats everybody. Now, in the middle of where we are with Trump supposedly in the wilderness, he shouldn't be beating the county commissioner in picking South Carolina. He should be just underwater. Why do you suppose Trump wins in all of these polls? The media won't touch this with a ten foot pole. They don't want to go anywhere near Trump's popularity with the American people.

Is Climate Change an Economic Issue? Ben Lieberman Explains

"Isn't climate change in many ways. Yes, it is an economic issue that it could be addressed in a different way. Oh, absolutely. And yes, it's very much a global issue. And in fact, China has now surpassed the U.S. by a very wide margin in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. If the environmental activist community really cared about climate change, they could be spending 90% of their time focused on China. These days rather than trying to hamper the American economy, you almost got the impression that knocking the U.S. economy down a peg is the goal for many of these folks. And yes, these countries, especially we hear this from African countries who often don't like this, but they sometimes call environmental colonialism that they have these costly measures forced upon them where they're still dealing with abject poverty, development, economic development is far more important. I mean, if you look at the worst case scenarios that are speculated under climate change, they pale in comparison to the actual things we see among the world's most desperately poor. So let's deal with the real problem of global poverty and absolutely. Let's not use climate change as a reason to stifle economic development in those countries. For example, by trying to prevent them from using low cost coal and natural gas and to develop these resources.

"WTO sports. Breaking news this morning, President Biden says a tentative railway labor agreement has been reached between rail workers and operators.

There's word from The White House that President Biden spoke with King Charles today, conveying hopes for a close relationship between the two countries. CBS News special report. I'm Steve Katherine. While Britain was the initial epicenter of this year's monkeypox outbreak, and there have now been nearly 60,000 cases worldwide. The head of the CDC is urging Congress to approve emergency funding for research and vaccines, Mitchell Miller, with more from Capitol Hill. CDC director Rochelle Walensky says there have now been 22,000 monkeypox cases reported in the United States with one confirmed death, and she tells a Senate health panel that more funding is needed to help contain the disease. CDC will use the additional resources to support testing and laboratory capacity expansion. Vaccination efforts, surveillance. The Biden administration is seeking four and a half $1 billion for monkeypox. In addition to more than $20 billion for the coronavirus, but Republicans have pushed back on the funding request, which could complicate efforts to agree on a short term spending bill to avoid a government shutdown. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO news. The nation's labor secretary is expected to meet with both sides today to try to prevent a crippling nationwide rail strike. Freight railroads and their unions are at odds over pay and working conditions with a Friday deadline looming. What are the implications for commuters if a strike on the rails happens? So Amtrak has started to warn passengers that interruptions will sort of begin to impact their not nationwide network. This started on Tuesday and so they've actually been pulling chains on three long distance routes. I think for the northeast quarter, we're not expecting to see major disruptions for Amtrak, but it could be depending on how long the strike lasts if there is a strike that there's more disruptions nationwide. That's Washington Post labor reporter Lauren Gurley. Ukraine's military is claiming for the first time that it encountered an Iranian supplied suicide drone by used by Russia on the battlefield, U.S. intelligence had publicly warned in July that Tehran planned to send hundreds of bomb carrying drones to Russia to aid in its war in Ukraine. And while Iran initially denied it, the head of its paramilitary revolutionary guard has boasted about it in recent days, Ukrainian troops encountered the drone during a military offensive that has punched through Russian lines around kharkiv. There's new fallout a year after a high school student assaulted two schoolmates at two different schools. The loudoun county school board has voted to approve a new student discipline policy. That motion will carry unanimously. Thank you. The new policy lets the loudon county school system keep a student accused of serious crimes out of the general population instead of being transferred to a different school. Once a serious incident is reported to the superintendent, that student can be assigned to an alternative learning environment that can be in person virtual or a combination of the two. And it can be imposed whether the crime happened on school property or someplace else. In loudoun county nail log and stay in double pinos.

"Have now or really the basic ways that schools are operating. Why do so many core debates in our country end up in school board meetings? Well, one reason is that young people enrolled in the schools who are today ages 5 to 18, ten or 20 years from now, they'll not only be voting, many of them will be running for offices and will be voting for them. A second reason for this is there are roughly a 100,000 public schools across the United States, and these are simultaneously government institutions. They are institutions that belong to local communities. They are manifestations of our public life together. And given the decline over the past several decades in civic associations and in other forms of public life, the schools are often the only place where people are coming together and engaging in these kinds of civic activities. Are there a ton of parents fighting for their kids to learn history and science, fighting four books to stay on shelves and in curricula? We see polls that show that the number of parents who want their kids to be exposed to quote unquote honest accounting of history that they far outnumber the parents whose voices are so loud in this debate. But the problem is that the kinds of scenes we've been witnessing at these school board meetings, I have talked to people all over the country who describe the demoralizing effect of being shouted down. You know, of being too fearful to speak up at a meeting. They really have an anti democratic effect. What's troubling is that as things move on to the book banning phase, often you have students speaking out and saying, I need to be exposed to ideas like this. They're going to end up on the receiving end of this kind of anti democratic action, which I think sends a powerful signal that you're better off just not speaking up. So the loudest voices at that public comment section of the school board meeting often, it's the woman at the Virginia meeting who says, you know, we're coming back and we're bringing our guns. So there are a ton of parents who feel it's important for their kids to learn history and science. But they aren't loud enough. I think that that's really true. And I think the other thing that's going to be very interesting to watch is the more these bans go into effect, limiting what kids can learn. The more kids own futures are going to be limited. And at a certain point, the affluent suburban parents who we complain about so much that they do everything they can to gain advantage for their kids. Well, at a certain point, it's going to make a difference in something like an AP test or a college admission. They're going to end up learning less as a result. Once parents start to process that, the real backlash to this is going to happen. We've already seen this in states where legislators have really pushed to defund public schools for ideological reasons. There's a certain point where parents who have not been involved before start to see that this is making a difference for the worse in their own kids lives. And that's where the backlash really picks up steam. Jack, Jennifer, thank you very much. Thanks so much for having us.

"Available over the counter on the shelf stock for all ages. But when barrero sent a team of medical students to pharmacies across western Pennsylvania to see what they actually had on hand, they found a third of pharmacies didn't stock plan B at all, and when they did have it, most of the time it wasn't really on the shelf. It was either behind the counter or in one of those lockboxes, like really constraining access because having to ask somebody to actually get the emergency contraception pills for you could be a real deterrent for some people. So you can imagine, especially for a team, going and asking for one of these products, being concerned about potential judgment can be a significant barrier to purchasing. Pharmacists say there are good reasons for putting plan B under lock and key. Don downing was a practicing pharmacist. He also helped develop plan B he's a professor at the University of Washington school of pharmacy. He says many pharmacists have told him over the years that plan B is frequently a target of theft. He says he'd rather see it locked up in the store than not available at all. If they could make it available by keeping it behind the counter, that may be ultimately more helpful to a woman than not stocking it at all. And keeping a dragon stock is even more of an issue when it comes to the other form of emergency contraception pills, Ella, which requires a prescription, barrera's study found only 5% of pharmacies had it available for immediate purchase. So 5% was a bismol. I really was very surprised. I was really thinking it would be something like 50%. 5% was crazy. Think about it. Emergency contraception has to be taken within a very narrow window. If the pharmacist has to order it, even if it arrives the next day, for some people, that could be one day too late. And the problem isn't just confined to Pennsylvania. Studies conducted in pharmacies across the U.S. have found pretty much the same thing, and the bills tend to be even harder to find in independent drugstores. Rebecca stone is a clinical pharmacist at the university of Georgia. She says one reason why many pharmacies don't stock Ella is because it doesn't get prescribed very often. It's not very well known by prescribers, meaning physicians, nurse practitioners. Any type of traditional prescriber nor by pharmacist and if providers aren't prescribing it, pharmacies are less likely to keep it in stock. Kelly cleland of the American society for emergency contraception says, that's really concerning because Ella can be a better choice, particularly for certain people. There is an issue with plan B and its generics potentially not working for people who weigh more than a 165 pounds. And for those folks, it seems like Ella is more effective. So it's important that Ella is available in stock and that people know about it. People who work in reproductive health want to see more education on emergency contraception for pharmacists for women and for doctors, Laura bellis is already on the case. She's the executive director of take control initiative, a contraception access program in Tulsa county, Oklahoma. The program just rolled out training for doctors and other providers after many of them said they had lots of questions about emergency contraception. Sometimes clinicians alike, can I just hand this to anyone and the answers? Yeah, if someone's a reproductive age, it's safe to have on hand. They can put it in their medicine cabinet at home. Bella says having emergency contraception on hand is especially critical in places like her home state. In May, Oklahoma adopted the nation's most restrictive abortion law. It's now illegal in all but a few cases. And so with that, we know how critical it is that folks have access to last lines of defense, like emergency contraception, advocates say this access will become more critical throughout the U.S. in a post roe

"Businesses. Alfredo, it's great to catch up with you my friend before we talk about how are you before we talk about that great billboard in Times Square and relive some great moments of our event in Tampa a few weeks ago, I got a play for you. Congressman Jim Jordan, what he said moments ago about small business owners and what small businesses have experienced under the boot of the Biden administration. This was just moments ago as Merrick Garland was about to testify on Capitol Hill. Here's congressman Jim Jordan. Every single liberty we enjoy into the First Amendment has been assaulted over the last year. Stop and think about it. Americans were told you couldn't get a church couldn't get a work. Couldn't go to school. Small business owners were told you're not an essential business, close your doors, causing many of them to go bankrupt. We were given curfews, stay at home orders. Last fall in Ohio. In your Alfredo at ten. I've seen in the streets of New York and all over the country, frankly, businesses shuttered for good because of this administration. I'm so thankful for people like congressman Jim Jordan to remind them in person what they've done to small businesses in America. Yeah, absolutely Mike. And it has been an absolute war on small businesses. Administration, I mean, is completely out of touch. They're clueless in terms of what small businesses are going through, you know, we just completed one of our monthly polls, Mike. And I think I actually mentioned this to you when we saw each other. But only 11% of the small business owners that we've pulled said that they're just barely recovering from the COVID pandemic. And so imagine that 90% basically of our business in this country are still trying to get out from that COVID pandemic. And then you lay on top of it the labor shortage caused by the Biden administration. Now the supply chain interruption caused by the Biden administration. And then you have this proposed vaccine mandate on all small businesses above a hundred employees. And Mike, I think great exception with how Biden has portrayed this vaccine mandate has only been applied to our largest employers in this country. When I hear that Mike, I think delta, I think United Airlines, I think Coca-Cola right, I don't think of like, you know, mom Paul smith's, you know, manufacturing companies, whose city Iowa with a 150 120 employees. I mean, this is a major major issue. And that's why Mike as you probably were very well know by now, we are taking the Biden administration to court if they don't pull this back. They've got to, and you guys are fighting. You guys are battling on behalf of small business owners. That's why I want everybody to join job creators network. Job creators network dot com. Tell me about tell everybody about the giant billboard in Times Square because I know that's not cheap, but that sure gets the lefts and the Biden administration's attention. Oh, yeah. It certainly does. Well, as you know, too, Mike, we've been pretty effective with billboards in Times Square. Going all the way back to when we hit AOC with the Amazon fiasco that she caused by getting 25,000 jobs out of 25,000 jobs from New York banks AOC, great work. You did a great job with it. Yeah, yeah, absolutely absolutely amazing. So we've been hitting the Biden administration. We were definitely a thorn in their side because we just keep on hitting them with all these ridiculous ideas of the mandates, everything else that the Biden administration has brought forth to the American public. The latest one is really hitting on the vaccine mandate. You know, and what we've said there is, hey Joe, it's time to let the mandate go. You know, because this is something that we just firmly believe is a decision that should take place between you and your doctor. It's a private decision, it's an individual decision. Mike will need to be really clear. We're not anti vaxxers. I personally have taken the vaccine. Most of my employees have taken the vaccine. We think it's great thank God for president Trump and vice President Biden who led the charge to come up with this vaccine. If it weren't for them, we wouldn't be here today talking about a vaccine. We've been a much very difficult situation. So, you know, we encourage all Americans to take vaccine, but we do not believe that the government should be able to mandate and force employers to be the vaccine police for them and implement social public policy. And Alfredo, the left hates that position. I mean, they don't understand it. We leave them scratching their heads because I'm exactly the way you are. I believe in the vaccine. I got my second shot this week. I got the second Johnson & Johnson as recommended by my doctor, and that's my personal decision, but for the fact that government to impose that medical decision upon employees and have them lose their jobs. I keep thinking about Dave Chappelle who's been in the news with his big Netflix stand up comedy special. And he's a serious guy, and he said something that was really profound when you take away a person's livelihood. You might as well kill them. And it's so powerful for a guy like that who relates to so many millions of fans, that's what the Biden administration doesn't care. But job creators network does, and that's what you guys are fighting every day. I was so proud to be on stage with you. Governor desantis a couple of weeks ago. We even had a couple of loony protesters who tried to crash the party with claiming the desantis failed in the COVID response. Oh, I'm looking at COVID numbers these days, Florida at the bottom of the list in terms of the decreasing cases in Florida. I think we're second only to Hawaii now in decreasing caseloads. How about that? I wonder where those protesters are today, Alfredo. Yeah, that's absolutely right. And look, and that's one of the reasons Mikey, and when you look at this upcoming mandate that's being worked on through osha. And we believe that it's actually going to probably come out any day now and we'll be ready to fight..

"first reason" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King

"It's official donald. Trump is no longer the president of the united states. As i speak. Joe biden and kamala harris are being inaugurated are being sworn in to their positions and we are about to enter a very new era of national politics of federal politics. I don't expect that it will be easy. In any way we have over-simplified our problems in the sense that we have blamed many of our deep systemic problems that predated trump. We have blamed many of those things on him including police. Brutality mass incarceration when those things were fully entrenched before he ever took office. But i want to say. And i want to talk about this this one thing today. I wanna say the one reason why. I'm going to have a serious degree of grace and patients with both joe biden and kamala harris. That i think a year ago. I probably would not have offered. Had the two of them been sworn in but a lot has happened over the past year. Let me tell you why. I'm going to have grace as they began this extremely difficult journey. Let me unpack and explain it. This is shaun king. You're listening to the breakdown. The breakdown the breakdown. If you've ever listened to this podcast or if you follow me on social media you've ever seen or heard me on the campaign trail for bernie sanders you know that. I've been a huge huge critic of joe biden and in particular. I've been a huge critic of his is policies and history and and kind of problematic past on issues of mass incarceration the war on drugs and policing and win this presidential campaign particularly we go all the way back almost two years now on the democratic primaries i started <hes> there was no coronavirus pandemic. There had been no attack on the american capital and the four hundred thousand plus people who've now died over the past nine months they were they were all alive and what has happened to our nation over the past year truly makes it arguably one of the most difficult years in modern american history of certainly over the past few generations at the very least. It's just been an unspeakably difficult year. And the truth. Is that all of the things that made twenty twenty so hard as we saw just continued into twenty twenty one now with trump out of office and with him off of twitter and i. That's no small thing. I i wasn't. I was on break from the podcast when he was booted from twitter and didn't get really didn't get a chance to really unpack it but having him off of twitter is damn near as big as having him out of the white house. Twitter was his superpower and with him no longer their misinformation and hate and so much other things so many other things just plummeted all over social media particularly on twitter. He he we now. Fully understand was the epicenter of hate and misinformation on that platform. And when you remove him all of a sudden so many other negative metrics plummeted as well now hate and racism and bigotry. Don't disappear when you remove him from twitter. But having trump out of office without the power of that position about the power to appoint judges and supreme court justices and cabinet members and white house staffers in without the power of executive actions without him and his incompetent team overseeing the a horrible response to the coronavirus pandemic a competent team can now be put in place and so a lot of the things that made twenty twenty difficult. Some of those things continue into twenty twenty one though with trump out of office his administration out of office and with him off of twitter. I think there are some things that will get better with that sale. Joe biden comma. Harris are literally about to begin. What i think will be the most difficult presidency in our lifetime

"Speaking of coded language. Well, it's hard for a number of reasons. One reason is that we are very far from consensus among the American public about what speech platforms should be taking down, But then beyond that is the point that you raising your question about what once they do set a policy. How can they tell when a new Name or euphemism is in circulation. And part of the answer is that they employ people who are experts and following the research on this, and so hopefully the big platforms who can afford to employ those people are relatively up to date. What about the concern? Some people have that Alcide an old example that someone like Lenny Bruce wouldn't be able to be On the social media platforms. Now, that is absolutely a concern. There's also a risk of the harm from taking down the wrong things falling disproportionately on certain groups, in particular people of color people who are not native English speakers. There are studies showing that when platforms rely on automation to figure out whose speeches hateful They falsely penalize speakers of African American English more than everyone else.

There's also an economic issue with proposing rules that the giant platforms can afford to comply with, But they're smaller competitors cannot let me cash back one last time to what? Jack Dorsey of Twitter Suggested this week and to paraphrase him, he said, We took the step on Lee reluctantly because we really do seek to be a worldwide platform for a free exchange of ideas. All over the world, even ones that some people consider to be offensive. We have to be careful about this because this is the way that some national liberation groups the only way that they can communicate with each other against the dictatorship. I think it's something we all should pay attention to, as we press for more takedowns of bad content, the risk that that will become a mechanism for silencing important public discourse. But also I think they don't want to have to make decisions that will make half of the country very angry with, um any shift that would let them outsource that decision and point the finger at somebody else as Facebook is doing with the Facebook oversight board, I think they would be very happy to find that. Are there some dangers as we become increasingly reliant for these platforms to carry national dialogue? Is that instead of people talking to each other and exchanging different ideas, we're going to have everybody crawl under their favorite platform and exchange only ideas there. Well, that is a risk in particular as we drive hateful speakers off of mainstream platforms where other people can respond to them and disagree with them. Into smaller and more marginalized echo chambers where they're going to hear only views that agree with there's our views that are more radicalizing. That is one of the costs. Definitely.
