"Definition of veterans in michigan to clearly exclude those who violate the michigan anti-terrorism ac from receiving state board veterans benefits. This of course follows the significant increase in incidents of domestic terrorism. Over the last few years including now this is the Last week was the first anniversary of the invasion of the state capital. By all the crazy people Brandishing assault weapons et cetera et cetera. It's a good time to introduce it and it's a common sense thing. We shouldn't be paying veterans benefits to people that basically are trying to overthrow government. At least i would think that they could agree on that but Who knows well. They won't agree on that because The people who are doing that believe that they are oath keepers and they're defending america and republicans are going to support that because that's their base basin. It's also where a lot of the recruiting is done with ex military. Yeah god help us all A related note. The activists in the republican party are looking to get another scalp. They wanna get rid of. The party's current executive director who merely said the trump. Blow it in two thousand twenty. The guy's name is jason row. I must confess. I've known jason since he was in high school and his father was also the executive director of the republican party many years ago and in fact he was called mr republican when he when he held that job according to debra l. a. frankenmuth organizer leading the push to censure and remove row from the state party. We're not necessarily saying the trump. The man is the future of the party. Because we don't know what's going to happen. Nice way of saying you may end up in prison. But the mega movement which propelled michigan turning red for the first time since reagan in two thousand sixteen. That's what we don't wanna lose. We believe that's the future of the party. God help us not some guy who believe that. It's trump's thought. We lost the election and it wasn't stolen. That is your current michigan republican party. Ladies and gentlemen that is not. I mean that you know we talked about trump having in the republicans having this called the personality thing. She tries to say that. That's not the case. But when you said the election was stolen you talk stolen election sculptor culture personality. And you're talking about the man. Yeah so that's crazy okay.

Jim Cramer and Rob Maurer Discuss Tesla's Q1 Earnings
"One of the biggest earnings reports to come so far this week has been tesla came last night. Now i want to bring on his various guests raum our host daily and an investor in tesla. Now rob i want to start by discussing tesla's overall earnings which should beat wall street. Expectations and revenue was up. Seventy four percent from a year ago kentucky this momentum going. Yeah definitely think so. I think what we're seeing a little bit of a sell off. Today is probably a lot of excitement than tends to build into earnings and then when there's no massive surprise or something like that. Although tested beat they were driven by some one time items when there's no massive surprise or updated guidance or something like that investors can move onto the next thing but for investors that are willing to take a long-term view on tesla which most people should be this really you know decade-long girl stories. We've talked about. I think you know. There's a lot to be excited about from from their innings. Report yesterday rob. How much did they really make it. Back up the credits. That cup the Yeah so they reported a non gap net income of just over a billion dollars. Half of that was regulatory credits. So about half a billion there One hundred million came from the sale of bitcoin so tests on key one acquired about one and a half billion in bitcoin. They sold about ten percent of their stake. Somewhere around fifty percent profit on on that sale of about one hundred hundred billion or one hundred million there so backing out those things You know they earned about four hundred million dollars but On a non gab basis on a gap baselessly Technically back out the regulatory credits. They still have lost. But that's not a great way to look at it. Tesla has super high stock based compensation right now because of elon. Musk's co compensation plan three hundred million dollars of their stock based compensation. This quarter was because of musk's plan. That's not gonna continue. There's only about seven hundred million dollars left in total on the plan yet to be recognized. So if tesla continues the pace that they were out in key one. That's only gonna continue for a more quarters. And i think over the next few quarters. We're gonna see that decline anyway as It's just gonna take a little bit longer for the rest of that to be recognized.

Not only did this movie generate over four hundred million dollars in profits in. Its earn right. It boosted sales of lego products by over three and a half billion dollars with a b. And the reason it did that was not because it created a glorified add food the product that they were trying to sell in fact it worked for the exact opposite reason they set out to create entertainment and whilst most of us don't have the luxury of working for a brand is well known as something like lego. The principle still remains the same. When we create our content we should focus on trying to entertain too often. We try to sell all. We try to inform now informing in its own. Right is not a bad thing if that information is really truly interesting and valuable to app potential consumers but if you entertain you will get attention now you may not get three point six billion dollars worth of intelligent fair enough but still win creating your content think about how you can create something entertaining too often in fact most of the time the stuff that we create it's not entertaining. It's kinda boring. Might be informative. Yeah but that's also still a little bit boring so focused on creating entertainment. That is the key to a successful content marketing strategy. I la liga

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

Community-powered solutions to the climate crisis
"Home. It's where we celebrate our triumphs. Make our memories and confront our challenges and these days there are plenty of those an historic pandemic wildfires floods and hurricanes all threaten our basic safety. These challenges hit even harder in communities that have been cut out of equal opportunities in the us. Unfair and racist housing policies called redlining have for decades forced black brown indigenous and poor white families into areas rife with toxic chemicals that make people sick. They're surrounded by concrete that traps extreme temperatures demand more cooling more money more energy more carbon. Our problems are interconnected. Imagine all we can do when we realized the solutions are two at the solutions project. We've seen that some of the people most impacted by covid nineteen least likely to have a steady place to call home and most affected by the damage to our climate are already working on effective and scalable solutions. Take buffalo in miami where affordable housing has become a community solution to the climate crisis. Buffalo new york is the third poorest city in the united states and six small segregated but our people. How're is strong. Over the last fifteen years my organization push buffalo has been working with residents bill ren- affordable housing deploy renewable energy and to roll the resilience in power in our communities. We saw heating bills soar over the last pay. We organized state policy help. Small businesses into our people to work. By the rising homes we responded with equal landscaping ingredient infrastructure when record rainfalls flooding our neighborhoods. We replaced the concrete that overwhelmed and may heat ways unbearable. Let us visit school. Seventy seven and eighty thousand square foot public school building that was closed and abandoned for nearly a decade but pushed off low in the community transforms to solar power forcible senior apartments and a community center. This is what the community wants it when private developers were school building for high end loft apartments eight hundred residents mobilized came up with a plan. We became new york. State's first community. Solar projects in during the coronavirus pandemic abon tier running mutual at catalyst. Miami anga miami climate alliance. We work with dozens of other organizations to enact policies. Ride safe housing anthrax climate. Here in miami. We've seen a four hundred percent increase in tidal flooding between two thousand six and twenty sixteen. And i've seen forty nine additional ninety degree days per year since nineteen seventy. We fought for the miami forever. Bond to fund four hundred million dollars for affordable housing and climate solutions. Yet every day we continue to see luxury high rise condos being built in our neighborhoods added more concrete in heat on the ground. Some of our members are taking matters into their own hands. Literally conscious contractors is a grassroots collective that formed during hurricane irma to protect rebuild and beautify our communities all while increasing energy efficiency. They don't think that anyone should have to choose between paying a high a. c. bill and living in a hot in moldy house that will worsen respiratory illnesses such as asthma or corona virus. They fix problems at the source. Advocates across the country are holding their governments accountable. Climate solutions that keep their communities in place we need to push from reportable housing green infrastructure and flip protections because these are the solutions that solve many problems at once.
Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat Addresses Bank's Risk Management Deficiencies
"Was fined four hundred million dollars earlier this month for lacking adequate risk controls and entered into a consent order with a Federal Reserve should investors be concerned about that. Well, I would say first, you know, we are disappointed that we fall short of our Regulators expectations and as we've said very publicly as an institution, we are fully committed to thoroughly addressing the issues identified in those consent words as part of that. There are four main areas of focus in there around risk management data governance controls and compliance and I think what important what ties these together is, you know, the the the need or desire to continue the modernization of our infrastructure our governance in our process dead. And we have had remediation programs in place. And while we've been making progress against those we're simply not where we need to be and and we acknowledge that and and I would say wow. This is is disappointing. We are committed to addressing the issues and you know continuing to kind of push forward in those areas that we've described. You know, we've already begun making structural changes celebrating our programs and Investments and you know as a firm, I think we're absolutely laser focused on automating processes ensuring accurate data can be assessed quickly and and we're I you know is reproducing management regulatory reports it again, nine months into the crisis, you know, those systems have served us well, but we can certainly make them better.

"Spending apples money. The tinseltown edition call to mike highlights report from the wall street journal. That says the movie studio. Mgm has put itself up for sale. Nothing official of course just a rumor. Assuming it's true. The journal figures some big technology companies are likely buyers with its apple. Focus cult of mac wonders whether cupertino might be interested. It has been interested in a few times before well interested in one. Mgm property at least bond james bond according to the cult and twenty seventeen. It was reported that apple. Tv plus exacts zach bamberg and jamie. Erlich were leading. Apple's attempts to buy the james bond franchise than earlier this year. Apple supposedly made an offer to buy upcoming movie. No time to die after kobe. Nineteen scuppered its theatrical.

Why Athletes Want Trademarks for Everything
"Sir ryan. I'm super curious. How did you land on trademarks as something to write about in the first place. Well i was actually working with as an editor on a story. Earlier this spring about the buffer brothers ryan hawkins smith is an editor and writer for espn dot com and he reported on the rise of athletes seeking trademarks which saw an enormous uptick in two thousand. Twenty michael bruce buffer Most people know the michael for let's get ready to rumble. Yes we work on this story. We discovered some numbers that we thought could not be right and the numbers were that trademark alone. That one sentence that michael says in the ring may have netted the buffer brothers north of one hundred million. Maybe three four hundred million dollars over the years but yeah it was bonkers but it checks out that one phrase it's a business unto itself like one of my favorite details. We were working on this. There's a website for michael buffer and. Let's get ready to rumble where you can go and rat out people you have seen or heard using that phrase get ready to rumble and in return for being a horrible internet informant. They will mail us some buffer merge and then they will pursue legal action so i was just thinking as i read all of this. I got a dive into this world. I need to know more. So i want to be very clear about this. Then what's the motive for filing a trademark ryan. If you're an athlete so a lot of trademarks can be quite lucrative. I bet we ended up talking quite a bit about the ones that make a lot of money. The vast majority though are athletes protecting themselves protecting their trademark. Just in case because the reality is when you think about hail murray as big play as that was and as much as it it resonated in the sports world like how much money. How many t shirts saying hail marie are. They actually going to sell like if they're lucky. What fifty thousand dollars. It costs a couple thousand dollars to to get an attorney and to get a trademark so it's actually a really bad business plan most of the time but it makes sense that you would go and protect your athlete like the last thing i think a manager or a business advisor wants is to have to come to kyla murray after murray says hey why am i seeing coffee mugs outside the stadium that have my raise and picture on them so it's mostly about protection. This is also an industry that you say has been not only connected to sports and athletes for decades and decades. It's also changed in the past decade or so. How did that come to be. There's two answers. The short basic answer is that good athletes have management people around them at bigger teams than ever think about this stuff all of the time but i go down a rabbit hole about the more meta answer which is applications went from two hundred sixty nine thousand in the united states in two thousand eight to twice that in twenty twenty Oh a small number actually athletes. So this is a society thing. And so the wormhole that i go down is just how much humans are more cognizant of the idea of celebrity and individual branding than ever before and you could point to social media for some of that. You can point to the kardashians. Maybe even donald trump as examples of successful personal branding

Jordache reported that they had one point nine billion dollars in revenue for the first nine months of twenty twenty on which they lost one hundred and forty nine million dollars compare that to revenue of only five hundred eighty seven million dollars a year ago and a loss of five hundred and thirty three million dollars. Coding alex willem in tech crunch door to ashes. A heavily backed company with crush base reporting that the food delivery giant has accessed around two point. Five billion dollars in capital during its life most recently in a four hundred million dollar around this june at the time doordash was valued at a towering sixteen billion dollars post money giving the company big valuation shoes to fill. When at prices it's ipo and begins to trade jordache has grown incredibly rapidly scaling. Its revenues from two hundred ninety one million dollars in two thousand eighteen to eight hundred eighty five million dollars in twenty thousand nine and more recently from five hundred eighty seven million dollars on the first nine months of twenty nine thousand nine to one point nine two billion dollars in the same period of twenty twenty that is two hundred and twenty six percent growth in two thousand twenty thus far these sort of expansion. That explains why door dash was able to attract so much capital at such high prices. How high quality is ashes revenue in the first. Three quarters of two thousand nineteen the company had gross margins of thirty nine point nine percent and in the same period of two thousand twenty the figure rose to fifty three point. One percent a huge improvement for the consumer consumable delivery confab. The result of door dashes epic growth and gross margin. Improvement has been radically improving profitability. The companies operating loss fell from four hundred. Seventy nine million dollars on the first nine months of twenty and nineteen to just one hundred and thirty one million dollars in the same period of twenty twenty door dashes net losses are slightly worse. Five hundred thirty three million and one hundred and forty nine million over the same timeframe respectively but again compared to the company's top line growth and revenue quality improvements are inconsequential. Jordache has around one point. Six billion dollars in cash and equivalents heading into the fourth quarter. Meaning that it has ample cash to fund itself sands an ipo. The company is there for going out because it thinks the time is ripe and quote. Yeah that's a bigger better business than. I certainly expected growing faster than i expected. But then maybe. I shouldn't be surprised because you know covid but also positively improving gross margins. Maybe they think they need to get out the door now before a vaccine actually shows up and maybe stalls their growth a bit

Takeaways from the NYT report on Trump's tax returns
"Never give a tax return when being audited. They're extremely complex people wouldn't understand him now the house goes and such defending they WANNA know every deal. I've ever done since declaring his candidacy for President Donald? Trump. Has refused to share his tax returns and gone to court to stop them being released. On Sunday The New York Times published an investigation into more than twenty years worth of Mr Trump's taxes, but not the documents behind them to protect its sources. The New York Times an explosive report despite receiving over four hundred, million dollars through two thousand eighteen report showed he paid paltry amounts of federal tax in recent years. The report claims that Mr Trump paid remarkably little tax since the turn of the Millennium. It suggests that many of the president's businesses are chronically loss-making. and it puts numbers to just how deeply personally indebted the president is. The revelations prompted a familiar retorted. News it's totally fake news made up fake. We went through the same store as you could ask me the same questions for years ago had a litigated this and talk about it. They are the same questions questions that arose in the presidential debates between Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton almost exactly for years ago maybe he doesn't want the American people. All of you watching tonight to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes because trump's rebuttal at the time that makes me smart smart. Tonight another set of presidential debates this time between Mr Trump and Joe Biden. It seems certain that once again, Mr Trump's accounting practices will figure into the discussion. The big headline takeaways on that he paid. No federal income tax whatsoever intended the fifteen years through two, thousand seventeen and in twenty sixteen seventeen the year that he ran for the presidency his first year old in the presidency he paid any seven hundred fifty dollars in federal Income Tax James. Ashville economists, Washington bureau chief. His company's myriad companies were making truly enormous losses over these years. Presidents companies have been losing hundreds of millions of dollars. He's heavily indebted at the same time, and the the record also show us that hundreds of millions of debt. In fact, around four hundred millions of data he's personally on the hook for his liable to fall due mostly within the next couple of years. So it creates a picture of a heavily heavily indebted loss-making businessman on a truly Gargantuan scale who's been paying little or no federal income tax and has serious debt worries ahead of him as he faces a cash crunch meanwhile. But how can it be? He's paid. So little tax over all of that time. I guess two main ways one is that he appears to be setting a large amount of personal family expenditure against his business revenues. For example, he is setting his family home expenses, his plane expenses, even his apparently also colossal head writing expenses against VAT revenue but by far, the biggest means that he's avoiding paying large amounts of tax walls taking in hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue is by setting those revenues against the enormous losses that he's making overall to give you just some taste of the scale of that loss making it. Seems that the president has lost more than three, hundred, million dollars since the turn of the century on his golf courses alone he's lost more than fifty five, million dollars on his Washington DC hotel, which has become a sort of symbol for trump world of the president's firm hold on the capital, and yet it seems it's losing money hand over fist, and all of that is above board. He may already been some difficulty over the scale of losses that he's claiming to set against his revenues. The long trailed audit that his tax affairs. From the IRS we learn relate to attacks refunded that he received decade or so ago of seventy-three million dollars related, it appears to loss-making casinos in Atlantic city a business that he walked away from though we don't know it appears that there is an least an allegation or suspicion that he may have profited from those casinos even as he walked away from. Them if that is the case, he's not liable that tax refund that tax refund plus subsequent interest would now mean a hundred million dollar bill for the president. From the IRS, are you yourself surprised I mean that the president has been fighting so hard to keep this under wraps I just wonder how much you're surprised by what you see in these files. I don't think we're surprised by any of this. We already knew something of the scale of the president's loss-making. He declared a loss of nearly a billion dollars back in the ninety s sufficient to avoid paying any federal income tax for around a couple of decades that was in the sense is remarkable as anything that we've learned from this latest enormous cache of additional detail. But there are a couple of really significant scoops and then the fact that he could be on the. Hook for so much money from the IRS. If the audit goes against him in the fact that he's personally liable for so many hundreds of millions of dollars of loan that will fall due in the next few years. That also is a very significant detail in for those that worry that the president may be compromised that his indebtedness could lead him to make judgements that the American people might have calls to question for those worries. This is I think sort of additionally inflaming. But I mean the picture that emerges here regardless of the creativity of the accounting is somebody who is not running businesses very well. So. Donald Trump entered politics back in twenty fifteen claiming to things that he would bring his business genius to the Serbs the American people make government work better, and that he would sort of right the wrongs that lofty elite were habitually visiting upon the hardworking vulnerable American people and I think the of broad takeaway from this trove of tax information is either Donald Trump is an absolutely appalling businessman in which case is I claim is hard to support or he's bilking the treasury of millions of dollars of avoided tax that he should be paying in which case his second contention is also rather heart support. And do you think either I if either can be parched or or stood up, we'll have any influence on the election on the debates this week. Let's let's break that down Jason I. Think this is not going to be a sort of major vote moving scandal. We've had equivalent scandals that have that have not moved the president's support up or down much a tool and I. think there's no reason to expect this to do so and yet it's significant significant. Because the president opinion polls consistently tell us is substantially behind Joe Biden in this race with only little more than a month to go before the election. What this does is put yet another hurdle in front of his trying to re come on the news cycle get on the front foot, take the attack to Mr Biden nine. We may see some of that in the first presidential debate tonight where Joe Biden has really been handed the script by the New York Times as it of opening attack on a president who loses so much money in his business of as pays such little taxes and result.

"You are listening to the best of the Sean Hannity show they exposing left wing media bias no stone left unturned the Sean Hannity show is back on the air well we put a big effort in order to promote democracy which is what we're all about here and remove obstacles to participation in our democracy Democrats insisted on resources in this last bill that the president signed last week we had four hundred million dollars to promote drug dealing by mail direct all of that however was not nearly enough we need at least five times that much in order to really meet the needs to protect the integrity of our election the critical infrastructure as well as to promote voting by mail it is absolutely essential at this time so in this next bill we hope to get more resources to well though by mail if you're doing that you have to have funds for the postal service as well which he has objected to by twenty five so the top of the hour there is the ever so eloquent Nancy Pelosi somewhat forgetful like yourself why is it every bill they're willing to hold up spending from the very beginning for workers small businesses those that are in need through no fault of their own during a national emergency pandemic of course they were busy impeaching the president and preparing to do the little pair of the president's speech for the any of them were paying any attention to Colbert nineteen and we know that the president was putting in a travel ban quarantine some us other travel bans it cetera but what is it about every bill Democrats now propose they want immigration before form they want amnesty they want open borders they want anybody to be able to vote what do you have an idea don't have an ID they're always adding new green deal provisions they're adding you know what to do but I don't say to rebuild America yeah they want basically socialism all across the country one of the things they are pushing for it the hardest has to do with voting by mail they will tell you know this is the best of seven out of abundance of caution and safety I am by the way they want to strip all voter ID laws they want to remove witness requirements and signature verification and what should concern all everybody here the you know if there are we know we have instances where people vote by mail and the easiest and best the most secure way to get somebody's identity and make sure that this person has a legal right to both that they are registered that they are legal citizens etcetera I'm we should not take away people's decisions to go forward with this a lot of this effort is being bankrolled by big Democrats because they see a political advantage in this you know let's mail to every home in America let's use the census that's how far they would like to go with all of this anyway Catherine Engelbrecht is back with us she is the founder of true the vote and anyway you you pointed out I owe a lot about this mail by voting nonsense tell us where we are at this time do you think they're going to ram this through I mean John you nailed it this is not about a vote by mail the convenience and the safety and the security of vote by mail that is that is absolutely what the left wants you to think but in fact this is a very well crafted and a long planned strategy I would say that it's every every push toward toward mail in ballots are coming with the attendant clauses of removing the signature verification and knocking down voter ID and opening up limitless ballot harvesting this this is an engineered effort to inject chaos being caused by the same group that pre pandemic were I trying to prevent states from cleaning their voter rolls prevent states from enacting voter ID and now they can use all of that too but to their best advantage because they know that the voter rolls are messed up they know that they are unreliable pushing out all of that paper into active and inactive voters mailboxes no you have no clue who's really getting the balance sheet and then the tsunami of paperwork coming back yeah Chinese can't handle it this is absolute engineered chaos with the outcome of of an intended litigation strategy that will play out for months and months and months after November and true the vote you've also gone forward with a preliminary injunction that you filed in Nevada and then Virginia you also filed a preliminary injunction what's going on in those two states in particular well in those states we've we've taken the bureaucrats to task in Virginia the governor has not only struck down voter ID but has declared everyone in the state to be disabled and that's how he's choosing to try to get around that the universal Malin push in Nevada the staff secretary state who's a Republican I might add was pushing for same thing universal Malin but also now we're seeing limitless vote harvesting in any court county they want to actually put the boat harvesters on the on the payroll they want to help the vote harvesters disenfranchise the most vulnerable parts of the population that it is outrageous and and you know and it's you know a day nothing that you don't hear a lot about it's it's largely being done at the hands of Hillary Clinton's lawyer Marc Elias is the mastermind behind all of this and it's it's it's stunning in its breadth and depth and scope and funding they were talking about with the when the first Colbert nineteen bill came in they were actually talking about allowing individuals to pick up as many people of people's ballots themselves as long as the envelope was sealed that would be good enough that would be sufficient enough well there's what there's no verification whatsoever if you do it that way and why do I not trust the person that is bringing all these extra balance out of the goodness of their heart I'm sure to either a bat a post office or voting for place yeah that that's exactly right why would we how could we there is no there there are insufficient security safeguards around any of this the most secure way to cast your vote in person at the polling place and so what we're fighting back against are the states that are denying their voters those opportunities which will necessarily written right result in a dilution of legitimate votes due to the expansion of fraudulent votes duplicate votes of errand boat it's it's this isn't this is a creatively troubling situation it is a tsunami that is headed for us in November that we have got to get our arms.

"You I was a pretty surprised this morning when I was looking through some of the information from last night's democratic debate surprise of Elizabeth Warren was the one who got the most talk time during the debate and she got almost four minutes more time the Mike Bloomberg coming Mike Bloomberg's a new kid on the block and he got the least amount of time are you surprised by that to hear a little bit I think part of that because the Bloomberg and experience on that and that setting I mean he had a few opportunities to talk longer about something and we just kind of sudden self off he also wasn't nearly as hit interject himself nearly as much in the first half the debate is kind of sat there passively and wait for things to happen the second half to get a little bit more aggressive and so we'll see how it goes in the future for me I think is an experience really showed last night I'm I'm curious to as I understand it to qualify for the debates all you have to you know it is so many money marks and then so much polling and unless I misunderstood it Bloomberg conducted his own polling so he could show high enough to qualify is that true I don't think that I don't know that's quite true and I know that he they were they redid the rules on donors in order for him to qualify because he's really funding is on campaign right and as I have a white base of support for and pulling in most in most polls recently he is percolating up in the top two or three and so I don't think there's an issue if you just go based on polling alone changing the rules a little of it seems a bit fishy yeah I I think so and that I mean I guess I understand it I mean you spend four hundred million dollars advertising yourself to run for an office you would imagine at some point they kind of have to include him in the conversation about you mention you know he would first have to cut it was passive and stood by you know what what was your take coming overall did you feel like he was fairly representative did he hold up under the pressure of I mean it took some attacks especially from Elizabeth Warren he really did she went after him hard up front about his record as mayor about possible sexual harassment kind of allegations as an employer ensuring after his money and his desire just in her mind by a campaign and I you know I don't think he really appear to be ready for those who did not have solid the answers either he failed in his preparation hers team fail them in his preparation of this process he did not look sharp and that and that yeah I think he had two options here either apologizes or try to forget things and move on which is what he kind of did or he could run as kind of the anti Democrat sort of like trump did in twenty sixteen you know I'm gonna embrace my policies in a brace of the to the truth and were to make you guys try to counteract them and may go on the offensive in other words he's part of the defense of approach I think is a bad choice yeah I think so too I mean you you want to buy that so you know especially you know it's undeniable he small in stature meeting beside Elizabeth Warren he looks smaller you you kinda need him to be a bigger present you kinda need his personality to take over at that point yeah I agree and I think that's the that's the big difference between him and Donald Trump you know he has tons of money can buy all kinds of air time concentric media markets but it is the interesting is the entertaining can he hold an audience yeah I think if we go based on last night he's going to struggle to do that now I think he recovered from the second half of the base he went after burning on some issues and got into this argument about socialism and communism and capitalism which I think are stronger points for him to make the we'll see how that sell the democratic primary yeah well.

your weather here is this move as one the reason we want heavy on the day before the fiasco begins in the Judiciary Committee but what start remember Lee with it's a tale to present sees this morning president trump and we've said in the report we're going to get to the minority report that came out last night because the minority report I think argues a set of facts the place and what's happening today on the world stage you have a tale to present sees one he's being actually of this rated by the democratic mainstream media you know today show morning Joe the morning Joe according to clown today and at the same time he's in London next to the general secretary of the United Nations but the of the NATO talking about how finally the NATO nations are pitching in on the overall two point five billion dollar the fund that runs nature overall the United States is now down to I think seventeen or eighteen percent along with Germany and France and others to finally get some even although it's a small number it's it's symbolic and then overall the two percent you know Stoltenberg said if it had been for trump we wouldn't have these nations so what is this what's a split screen presidency today me to you well that's exactly what's happening Steve Jens Stoltenberg the sector general of NATO is saying this morning the the this renewed interest in nature this renewed passion about nature this renewed fairness in NATO's spending commitments from its constituent member countries aids big coals president trump basically gave him a lot of tough love in twenty fifteen twenty sixteen and and in the last two years also and you've seen this like flip now where president Emmanuel microphone a Franz is the one saying NATO's brain dead we don't have to do it and president trump's up there today saying well actually now it's a fair union now it's a fairer alliance this is actually something that we can be a part of it it's insulting the micro now to come out and starts hurling insults at it and that goes back to the the idea that the European Union this had for a long time this is where a lot of the Ukraine stuff which ties into impeachment comes across the European Union for sometime is wanted its own army they didn't want to pay into it hasn't won its own army the guys in Brussels yet people like more krone do you have it's own army although they wouldn't do the two percent on their own for her even get and most most a lot of money did not going to operations ready this maneuvering equipment to that's the the stuff you need to actually fight but really they've been in the hawk to Iran for a long time the European Union has he seen work with Iran for a long time is still trying to resurrecting give mouth to mouth resuscitation to the Iran deal and they've also been working hand in hand with China for so very long also and so you see why preternaturally people like mark road would be gains NATO and you'll see that playing out in London this gets down to the central beating heart of what this investigation is in Korea's is that in in the Republican minority report I couldn't be prouder of of Devon knew me as in the team of what they want and argue they said at the end of the day this is going to be a policy dispute between a group of one elected bureaucrats although patriotic and as some of shown here was a man combat they have a certain way they think like the party that was I think like Brussels and this is a disagreement the president I stage is duly elected he was duly elected and and and November two thousand sixteen he is the commander in chief he was elected on this reversal of American decline of Manisha Klein and he is has a policy that is America first America first has a different set of priorities than the permanent political class and it just so happens there's no coincidences he's in London today laying it out on the works the world stage that the United States we are part of the alliance it's Donald Trump that's made the alliance stronger by forcing the the with the hesitant bureaucratic of politicians in Europe to actually step up and start to defend their own people congressman I want to just go to

Republican Party you come from you know one of the key districts in the country of represent the truck movement do you see a new unity in the Republican Party and backing from absolutely I see it on the house floor I see it on our caucus I see it in our conference meetings and I certainly see it in the people throughout the night congressional we you know people look at this you've got a one the president to have any guilt there because it doesn't add up right I mean you got to you got to push forward and and that's what that's what the left side is doing I mean we begin this thing with a process that was that was no due process complete presumption of guilt five members of the intelligence committee were already signed on to impeachment thirteen by the way on the Judiciary Committee

opponents say could effectively end asylum protections for all but the rich at issue is the trump administration role that would bar asylum seekers from filing their claims if they travel through another country without seeking asylum in that country lawyers made their arguments before a three judge panel of the federal appeals court for the ninth circuit in San Francisco Christopher Martinez reports for the trump administration's restrictive asylum transit rule would bar central American asylum seekers from applying for asylum in the US if they traveled to a third country like Mexico without seeking asylum there instead of here if you Geosystems groups led by the East Bay sanctuary covenant are challenging the real an American civil liberties union lawyer representing the plaintiffs told a federal appeals court in San Francisco that the new rule would effectively got the asylum process lawyerly collect as deputy director of the ACLU's national immigrant rights project and lead lawyer for the plaintiffs he argued the case before the circuit court and described the high stakes after the hearing this rule effectively eliminates a silent except for wealthy people have the ability to fly here everyone enters through a lan port that when they're seeking asylum a federal District Court in Oakland had issued a preliminary injunction to block the transit will from taking a fact but the Supreme Court later issued a stay letting the rules take affect until an appeals court had ruled on the merits and that is the case before the ninth circuit appeals court lawyer Scott Stewart argued the case on behalf of the trump administration he urged the appeals court to let the rules take a fact in this case the District Court issued an extraordinary nationwide injunction halting a critical executive branch rule designed to prioritize virgin asylum claims determiner of what was once combat human smuggling protect vulnerable migrants and find a lasting diplomatic solution to the shared international problems presented by unconstrained mass migration Stewart argued that find an asylum seeker travels to Mexico to the US without seeking asylum in Mexico that shows the asylum claim is not urgent or may even be without merit opponents of the bill say Mexico is not a safe place for asylum seekers and they say Mexico lacks a functioning asylum system two of the three judges also seems skeptical of the real at one point to it faced tough questioning from judge Richard Clifton again the failure even to to to see the result did to seek relief in a in in a third country in any third country that somebody transit is itself probative and what we want of the lack of urgency and potentially the lack of merit to a claim it and so I started by saying why isn't just as probative potentially as to whether that third country would provide a safe place judges noted that the trump administration's arguments for the transit rules did not present any evidence that asylum seekers would be safe if they remained in Mexico to apply for asylum there I didn't see anything there that spoke to safety but safety your honor that's only that's not the primary point of the rule it's a question of Emory point of a silent again but that but it's based on the judge's questions it looks like the appeals court may well issue an order to block the transit will from taking a fact but there remains the question of whether it will be a nationwide injunction as the plaintiffs want or a more narrow injunctions limited to the named plaintiffs in the case or perhaps an injunction that applies only and the western states of the ninth judicial circuit in either event the losing side will likely appeal the circuit court's ruling to the US Supreme Court

RKO in Boston what is the position of the trump supporters to this crazy week of testimonies and on top of everything the democratic party's debate Michael it's great to be on with you I mean I can't speak for all from supporters I can just tell you the way I feel and my audience feels this is a sham impeachment inquire re it's really turning into an absolute circus you at Gordon's son land the US ambassador to the European Union admit yesterday that in his one on one conversation with the president of the United States he asked them what do you want from Ukraine and according to the sun and the president said nothing absolutely nothing no quid pro quo and when everything is said and done Michael when the smoke clears what do we have we have an allegation first of a quid pro quo then of bribery then of extortion yet in reality do you cranium forget their four hundred million dollar check they did they get the meeting with the president that they wanted they did did they get the phone call with the president that they wanted they did and what the trump get nothing they never announced an investigation into Burris my or the brightness they never was launched an investigation into Burris my and the bidens so if you cram ended up getting all of its military aid and trump got no dirt on the bike nothing their cat there was no quid there was no qual and there was no underlying crime now what trumps motives were what he ultimately wanted those are motivations those are into tensions you don't impeach a president based on motives and intentions and you certainly don't overturn a free and fair election based on motives and intentions it is the equivalent of asking the death penalty for Jay walking so how do you think it's going to play out politically Jeff my prediction take it to the bank is that I believe that after this impeachment inquire hearings are done you are going to see support for impeachment go down you're already seeing didn't keep battleground states Florida Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania a strong majority of Americans say they don't want the president impeached and so ultimately I believe this is going to backfire on the Democrats and backfire big when we say impeached what we're we're talking about actually removed from office as opposed to going through the the Senate trial yeah I mean so what I think no matter what the articles of impeachment are now going to be drawn up the Democrats have set their course and so what we see now with these impeachment inquire re hearing over the last week and a half is essentially a pro forma case to a foregone conclusion they've already bake the cakes already baked in fact the articles of impeachment may already have been written up so will the president be impeached in the house most likely will be convicted in the Senate I just snowball's chance in hell so I believe in the end when all this process is over I believe the American people are going to punish the Democrats for putting the country through this and you know Michael I have to say in the end what are we talking about what somebody killed no was a money stolen no where any state secrets the vulture revealed no or any specific crimes in the criminal statute violated no we're talking about a conversation between two leaders in which at worst the president may be wanted some dirt on a political rival never got that dirt temporarily without the aid but the eight eventually in early September was released so on the basis of this if the Democrats want to impeach good luck to all but I believe the American people are going to react is going to be a backlash and I think the Democrats are going to pay a big price at the polls and Michael if I can just say one other quick thing sure what really concerns me about this is as an American historian if somebody who taught at McGill University and taught American history at McGill the Harvard of the north there've only been three times were impeachment has been involved with the president Andrew Johnson Richard Nixon who was an impeachment articles of impeachment were drawn up and of course Bill Clinton we impeachment is reserved for the highest crimes and misdemeanors for the most serious violations in our Republic and our democracy what we're now seeing with this trump derangement syndrome is the use of impeachment as a routine political weapon to lash out at once political enemies in falls and this is a very dangerous precedent I believe it ominous precedent that is gonna haunt presidents from both parties for years to come that I believe in the end the Democrats are going to rue the day they want to knock trump off to damage him to believe them because they fear with the current crop of candidates they whether it's Biden Warren or Bernie Sanders they can't beat a in November twenty twenty so they want to damage jam and undermine him with the sham impeachment inquire that's Jeff Kuhner her daily mornings on W..

I will join it in progress it is seven nineteen let's give them some business that this how about this pretty interesting story about Airbnb has into a reported five hundred million dollar deal to sponsor the Olympic Games until twenty twenty eight like a sun soaked two bedroom rental in Williamsburg this one promises a whole lot and a lot of people in the business were wondering can they deliver Airbnb will support the next five Olympics in Tokyo Beijing Paris Milan in Los Angeles with housing for visitors and workers yeah the storied Olympic village won't be replaced with Airbnb housing because being and all right Friskies Super athletes is not as fun as it sounds and now for the cities of so when it's a big win the of the international Olympic committee the IOC requires candidate cities to guaranteed forty thousand rooms to house the influx of visitors then if they are selected means billions of dollars spent on infrastructure projects to go unused once the games are over right now for twenty eighteen games local governments in South Korea eighteen billion dollars almost double the original projection per council of foreign relations Beijing and twenty eight cost forty five billion so she twenty fourteen fifty billion cities to get top you know quick tourism bows from hosting but they rarely actually are rarely cancel out those hi popping expenses Airbnb plans to lighten the load by marshalling in two hundred thousand combined host in five cities you know I can see this really working well I can see this being a hit because obviously when people go to it with the Olympics for example and events like that usually it's not like they're going for a couple days they're going to be there for you know some might go for the whole two weeks but most of the stage I can imagine her probably long stays in people want more of a home atmosphere I can imagine that because they're trying to save money the some of them aren't going to save money on food you know be able to cook at home and it's got more home atmosphere is more conducive now for Airbnb is prepping to go public next year here's here's here's what they get out of its one it was short but you know supporting the five biggest markets to it again Erin BB's brand out in front of tens of millions nightly as part of the world wide sponsorship of programming yeah along side you know the big boys coca Cola Ali Baba PNG but like race walking there's only a drama with Airbnb Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo alerted the IOC to the risk and consequences of working with Airbnb accompany Paris took legal action against this year for accusing it of of driving city rent higher wow well yeah okay it it's there's that but I think it all all in all it's probably gonna be hit I think the demand is going to be there and I think it's going to work well for them now what speaking of housing yeah at seven twenty two up from an Austin attorney is now trying to get Austin city council to reverse itself on zoning protest in the upcoming land development code rewrites wanna you know plans to zone the entire ship me explain up song I mean currently your home's probably residential housing but the city wants to up is on it change the zoning so that you other things can be built on that property yeah they're gonna is on it Becker gray his partner in Doug backer **** in a letter to mayor Steve Adler the Austin city council citing state law that says property owners can protesters zoning change that includes amendments repealed and others owning changes some vote to federally licensed Meryl this round one here we go they want to do a comprehensive rezoning well you can't replace the existing zoning with that repealing it simply means something news so to me the statue clearly applies yeah I know this is pretty interesting I mean some people want to fight the zoning change of their property that's obvious and according to Doug backer nobody's gonna have a chance to do that but if you rezone everything in the city or ninety percent of the city you don't have to give any notice and you don't have to have the three fourths majority that doesn't make sense to us and it's not fair we don't think it's fair and we don't think this legal it kind of takes a shot at your property right said does sectors with the firm gray backer sent that letter to the mayor demanding that the Saudi city council recognized state mandated protest right Sam said that they think they're acting within their legal rights in that there are authorities to support them but they haven't said what those of sorties are back this is the city doesn't believe that it and says it's a story that they they have the authority they believe so I guess the thinking is if if if ninety percent of the city is is up zone and they look at it as everybody's pretty much on the same playing field and so therefore there's no point in protesting because everybody has same problem so you should just suck it up like everybody else I guess thank you but it is it is not it is not fair I mean it's sort it's it's like what what is the point of of owning your own property you know you should have the right to to protest you should have the right to to protect that or at least to try to protect that and and it's yours it's your property show yeah the I'm I'm I'm with him that does not make a fair within reason I mean you should be able to do what you want with your property within reason within reason yeah I mean you you use you should watch a neighbor open up a slaughter house no no but rather that not happen sure and I hope no one in our neighborhoods thinking of that I can think of one never though that might be considering but but yeah I I I got that as far as protecting the the costs though

"Without the four hundred million dollar payment David Axelrod you're right he's out walking around telling LCC in Egypt yeah I'm a little concerned about the lack of boys and girls club I'm a little concerned that a lot of that money that should be paving roads in Egypt is not going there no he said if I give you this forty million dollar check I'd like to start going into a single and I'm a little concerned about no one else paying for this so I totally see it that's where I usually can go along with a lot of with David Axelrod says a lot of times he gets me thinking in a different direction but not here I think is a hundred percent wrong. so I'm I'd left I mean we've had to guess three gas on the believe it's inevitable the presents are gonna have an impeachment inquiry good luck with that he got nothing here there is nothing there you guys go back and forth with Joe Biden did and what the president said on that line to go to get the Ukrainians involved is going to need cap anything we're trying to do in Eastern Europe but that's what Ian Bremmer says he Bremer another show very of a deep thinker with a great newsletter cut twenty four I think this is a tipping point on impeachment which matters for an awful lot of people I mean we are talking about a president who is not in any way deny that he had a call with Ukrainian president where Biden and corruption in Ukraine was discussed it is now clear from the record facts that that actually was linked by a matter of a few days to a decision to pull back and suspend American military aid to the Ukrainian government in part this happened because it was the day after this call to create a day after we had testimony from Guatemala. okay I that's project yes conjecture that is not true number one is his first conversation the cranium later why would you give him the money that says gonna tell you the forty million dollars has been the buzz in your account the first you like to do is say I know you've been a comedian he literally was a comedian you have no political experience but let me tell you the country you're taking over I'm the one who gave it leave the weapons the previous administration did I'm a little concerned about this going into a single rabbit hole of the club to craft in your area and David Axelrod right. prison is really care about that unless it's our money or his money so and they probably brought up the whole thing with Joe Biden at some point didn't say was a quid pro quo so there he jumped to a budget conclusions there which are pretty surprised about twenty five. but a really important point here is that the actual action in Ukraine which people are forgetting about that Biden originally took at the order of the American present the time Brocco Bhama was to remove a special prosecutor who was not investigating by the sun I'm whether or not there was corruption going on this was a guy that was taken out precisely because he refused to investigate anyone who was very crap so Biden had been concerned about corruption and about his son being investigated you wouldn't want to remove this guy with someone who potentially would uphold rule of law but if you're in power in the president's got your back you could do whatever you want Rudy Giuliani thinks it's a different deal he thinks it is all related cut three soldiers that fight was involved.
