"There's the climate side of it, which people will debate. And then there is the actual pollutant effects, which have legitimate detriment effects on humans and cancerous behaviors. So there's the environmental side of it, there is the business side of it, where this is a great business opportunity. It's really fun. We have about 20,000 ft² of manufacturing facilities. We're building engines with 255 moving parts, like it's really fun, and you're building something of value. And then of course, you're in the Bitcoin side of things. And so of course I'm Bitcoin maximalist. I fell in love with the space. I have no doubt in Bitcoin and it's meteoric rise over time. And so combining all three of those really made the business a no brainer for us to continue to grow it out. How have you seen the political discussion? And that could be an environmental discussion or any other dimension change over the time that you've been doing this. It's very bipartisan. We've talked to a lot of lawmakers who helped sponsor a bill in Texas at the state level and then we're also helping write a federal bill. And so it's no brainer, right? Everyone agrees that flaring is bad or a waste. And we should stop it. And in doing so, there's a lot of things that you can do, right? You can do tax incentives, tax breaks on the actual income that you're doing incentivize people to get out there. You can maybe do credits for treating types of gas that maybe people don't want to go after. To help reduce those emissions. And so it's very bipartisan what we've seen out there. Yeah, I mean, this is one of the things that has continued to be, I think, unique about Bitcoin relative to the U.S. government is that it just hasn't calcified into hard, left, right lines. And weirdly, even when people try to do that, you know, they kind of try to get ideological with it. There's such sort of countervailing forces. And I think that you're right that this is a great example of why, because it's like anyone who's coming from this at sort of a first principles basis rather than whatever they're thinking about. There's a lot to like here. I guess it's interesting, you know, the critiques that I've seen tend to be hugely ideological from the start. In the sense of, if your premise is fossil fuels just shouldn't exist at all. And so, you know, anything that helps solve in the short term, the issues of flaring and what it means, both on the polluting and the climate side. Then you're sort of just enabling it to go longer, but that's such an ideological position. I mean, is that what you found in terms of people who are actively opposed to this? Yeah, that's a pretty common one. Saying, hey, you're propping up these oil and gas companies to do what they do and giving them another source of revenue. In reality, the amount of money these guys are making off hydrocarbons on the oil and gas side is like minuscule to any amount of money we would pay them for the actual natural gas. We would pay them little to nothing. They don't care about it all. And they're going to flirt one way or another. They just don't want to flare it from an environmental standpoint. So pragmatically looking at is these things will happen. How can we come in, not necessarily enable them, but go in and reduce methane emissions and make

The Origins of Thanksgiving With Bill Federer
"Bill, tell us, why do we celebrate Thanksgiving? What is the story of Thanksgiving? Well, the little background. So the king of England was a globalist. He was a one world government guy with him at the top. The British empire controlled in the Australia New Zealand Hong Kong brisk ionic Canada Barbados Bermuda Jamaica and America. And so America's founders wanted to break away from this globalist one world government king. And so they flipped it and made the people became. And so where did they get this idea that you could rule yourself without a king? Well, it came from the pilgrims and that it came from the calvinist Puritans that came from the reformation and then they got their ideas from ancient Israel. That first 400 years out of Egypt, it's called the Hebrew republic. And it's the first instance in recorded history of a nation with millions of people and no king. And there's around 1400 BC up to about a thousand BC. And it worked because every single citizen was taught the law. And they were personally accountable to God to follow the law. So this period of history is called the Hebrew republic. And these calvinist puritan scholars study this so intently that they were nicknamed Christian hebrews. So in 1517, Martin Luther starts the reformation and for about a century before the age of enlightenment, you have these scholars in Europe studying, not just the Bible in their own language, but this particular first 400 year period, this Hebrew republic. And that's why they taught Hebrew at Yale and Harvard. They were amazed at coming up with a form of government without a king. And again, it's based on this idea that you teach everybody the law and then everybody walks around aware that they're accountable to a God who's watching them watch them to be fair and it's going to hold them accountable in the future.
DHS Uses Tech Company Backdoor to Censor Speech
"So you see in the totalitarian state of California and like many other blue states they want to control the information And instead of you having a right to hear from different doctors and maybe make decisions as an adult they want to control the information and anyone who does not put out what the state wants Will then be taken off You'll be kicked off You'll be kicked off the doctor island I mean really it's the tactics of true authoritarianism To intimidate doctors into just repeating what the government wants them to say That's not freedom It's also dangerous to the public health because how could we ever come up with new ideas and new experimental treatments if doctors are afraid to open their mouths because they're afraid of the state's going to come in and kicking their door and take away their medical license It's terrifying And unfortunately during COVID and still now I mean don't forget the recent report that came out that said the Department of Homeland Security has a backdoor into these tech companies to be able to silence any misinformation on everything from the Afghanistan withdrawal to race relations in this country voting you know if you come out there and you suggest for example that having to show an ID is something that is okay they can take that down And of course COVID the pandemic I mean anything really So it's still going on to this day and Fauci should account for that as well
Razorfirst and Sebastian Discuss the Mechanics of Collecting Ballots
"I have drawn the following conclusions. Tell me if I'm off base or what's missing, raise the 5th. My take is the following. Where we have normal elections, let's say, two weeks of voting, we should do politics. We should campaign on a message, build a platform, get that candidate in front of as many people as possible and have rallies. Everywhere else, like Pennsylvania with 50 days, Virginia with 45 days. I mean, a Republican government, 45 days of voting, it's not about elections anymore, razor fist. It's about the mechanics of collecting ballots, not votes collecting ballots, and we just have to build that machine. And policies, platforms really don't matter because if Pennsylvania can vote for federman, then this isn't about politics. What do you think? Well, and some states come right out with it. They even venerate. I mean, California law venerates the practice, just explicates it is actually legal to ballot harvest. Right. Which makes it makes it a really tough sell in all the states where the Democratic Party is pretend that ballot harvesting does not exist and is a conspiracy theory. California doesn't seem to think so. They actually passed a law passing it. The thing that's hilarious about what you mentioned was Katie Hobbs, of course, the candidate that Carrie Lake was running against. It's bigger than that. People outside of Arizona only know Carrie Lake is the charismatic person that they've caught maybe an advertisement or a speech from. But here in Arizona, she had been a journalist and very, very visible here for over two decades. She was in the biggest markets from north to south for 25 years. She was a phase, right? Absolutely. And what's worse, her opponent was in charge of the election,
The NYT Is Eager to Blame the Spread of COVID on YOU
"A meanwhile, The New York Times eager to blame any spread of COVID on you. If you use anything they consider to be a far right platform, that includes gap. Now I don't use gab, but I don't know what's on gab. All I know is that it's a year after omicron surge officials see a reduced COVID threat this winter, who are the officials, Anthony Fauci, does anyone care no? Really? I mean, I've never seen such shattered credibility from the public health agencies ever. A lasting legacy of COVID far right platform spreading health myth. Now, I think that's absurd. Here I am, a conservative talk show host center Wright, perhaps got my two boosters, told this in the beginning, get your two vaccines, got your three boosters. I've got them still haven't had COVID. I fully expect somewhere down the road. I will get it, and I help my immune system has developed the necessary antibodies. No misinformation, there is a tunnel full of people who want to worry about that and that they're fine, but they don't do it on right wing. They find each other everywhere. You don't need to say this is a conspiracy theory. It's not. The CDC dropped the ball the FDA dropped the ball. Parts of the Trump administration originally, while they were doing warp speed, dropped the ball on the communications because they were being driven by Tony Fauci. And now the entire government is wrapped up in trying to prove that they didn't do anything wrong. In fact, public health completely botched the entire pandemic.
What's Changed in the American Diet? Vinnie Tortorich Explains
"Go back to diet now. What changed in diet? We got away from meeting red meat, we got away from eating fish. We got away from eating fresh red meat and vegetables. And we started getting into processed foods, we got all the sugars and grains that come with that. We made processed foods, grains are very cheap. I always use Taco Bell as an example when I was in college, you got two for 99 cents. And in today's world, you can still get two for 99 cents or less. So everything else has been inflated except Taco Bell. So how do they magically do this? Every fast food restaurant can get sugars and grains is subsidized by the government. It's almost free to give to people. We have these school programs for kids where we're telling them that pizza is a vegetable. And I'm not making that's not being funny. That was done during the Obama administration. We tell people that chocolate milk is good for these kids. Strawberry flavored milk is good. They're adding sugar to milk. We're putting sugars and grains everywhere at dinner.
Libs Blame Lauren Boebert, Tucker Carlson for Colorado Gunman
"Some of the things they were saying were just simply horrendous, as a matter of fact, I want you to listen to cut 14. This is someone saying that Lauren boebert that congresswoman and Tucker Carlson, they need to be flogged. They need to be punished for defending these children against these radical sex and gender revolutionaries. Cut 14. You need to see accountability and consequences. So first, a real quick hate crime charge here on top of the homicide charges, I applaud that. That tells me prosecutors and police, they found quickly what they needed. That means they know this was a bias crime. This is likely, and since we've heard reports that the subject isn't cooperating with police, that means they likely found clear and convincing evidence on his devices. If he's a consumer of the people we just rattled off from Lauren boebert to Tucker Carlson, let's get it out. Let's get it out at trial. Let's expose it for what it is. Name it and shame it. He's a consumer of these people and those people should face civil consequences from the victims. The other thing they want to deny is not only the safe harbor, but the way we resolve this. And by that, I mean, you asked earlier, how do we put a stop to hate? Well, one of the things you would normally do is teach young children in school, here's what race is about. These other people over here who may seem different to you. They have a different orientation. But you know what? Increasingly, states are saying, no, no, no. You can't talk about race or say the word gay or teach anything in schools. So they deny the resolution mechanism that we would normally use. So this guy is saying that the government clearly was a fan of Lauren boebert and watch Tucker Carlson all the time. Well, there's no proof of that. And I can not sit here behind this big, beautiful, huge conservative microphone, and tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that the guys ever watched Fox News channel. I can't tell you that because nobody knows that.

Anthony Fauci Shares His Final Message From the White House
"To be thankful for this week. Including Anthony Fauci, no longer being in our government. Now I haven't seen the last of Anthony Fauci. I got to tell you. We got to get him back in front of Congress. We got to get this leadership fight figured out. We got to get committees filled, and then we got to start sending subpoenas out like frisbees. To every single one of these people. Fauci gave his final message today at The White House play cut 69. So my message and my final message may be the final message I give you from this podium is that please, for your own safety for that of your family, get your updated COVID-19 shot as soon as you're eligible to protect yourself, your family and your community. This guy never stops. Paid to you by Pfizer AstraZeneca Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. Fauci continues. He says the real danger is those of us that have not been vaccinated. Play cut 72. In vaccinated and unboosted versus vaccinated plus boosted. That doesn't mean you shouldn't get boosted, but the real danger is in the people who have not been vaccinated. So that's where we expect if we're going to see a problem this winter, it's going to, yeah, if you see a problem, it's going to be the unvaccinated people. Doctor Anthony Fauci is the worst of the fourth branch of government. There has to be a mandate for this new Republican House of Representatives. To put on full display the lying the cheating, the stealing the deceit. The self enrichment. Of Anthony Fauci.
Israeli Political Party Likud Offers Informative Priorities
"Now in Israel they have their parliamentary system It's a crazy system Netanyahu says it's a crazy system and he's right See if they cobbled together all these parties The largest of which is Likud It would be much like the Republican Party but more conservative And their religious parties and other parties that have sort of niche issues that they're concerned about but it doesn't matter So you need to get 61 out of a 120 Knesset seats And they got 64 which is considered in modern day terms a landslide Believe it or not So now Netanyahu who is the putative prime minister They're having to cobble together the parties And determine who gets what position in the government But Likud just put out a list of their priorities Now all of them don't matter to us but some of them are very informative Because Benjamin Netanyahu has been for years frustrated by a very activist political judiciary Which like here is unelected And continues to stymie a liberty oriented a capitalism oriented agenda

The State of Man: Proclaim Your Bitcoin, Part 2
"Proclaim your Bitcoin. Part two by simply Bitcoin. Proclaim your Bitcoin is a three part series that will summarize the nature of man, the current state of man, and the future of man. Part one is the nature of man, part two the current state of man and part three the future of man. The tyranny of evil men. As explained in part one, man must undertake work to satisfy his wants and needs, and a man must defend the products of his work from both theft and entropy alike. This constant holds true even if the work conducted is theft. Even if man satisfies his wants and needs by violently taking from others, the thief must also work to defend the products of his theft and the systems that enable his theft. If he is to enjoy his stolen property. The primary work undertaken by thieves to maintain their systems of thievery is manipulation. Deceit and lies are the tools of the trade for the thief, and there is no grander system of theft than the debt based monetary system of the U.S. dollar. Enforced under deadly monopoly powers and perverse amounts of public manipulation. For those organized criminals that work behind the scenes within our governments, our banks, and within all manner of corporate and think tank institutions around the world, they apply a tried and true three step hegelian dialectic approach to maintain the supremacy of their theft based U.S. dollar system. Step one privately identify the problem. A loss of monetary control. Step two publicly identify any other problem. War, terrorist attack, cyberattack, et cetera step three, publicly implement the solution. Print more money and more regulations.
Larry Taunton: The WEF's Unspoken Agenda Is Depopulation
"Well, we were talking about Kissinger just a moment ago and really what I want to drive home is this whole idea that at bottom the World Economic Forum. Whatever their videos they put out and the sound very good and they're various feel good, a conferences and these kinds of things. The World Economic Forum at bottom, they're unspoken or let's just say it's not unspoken, but quietly spoken, agenda is depopulation. And this began with the predicament of mankind in 1970 and the fact that Kissinger and 74 is pushing in a classified document, a classified report to the president of the United States, depopulation. And he says, look, we need a global version of Planned Parenthood. And now in this document, he's speaking quite openly because he's not anticipating this is or ever going to be read by people like you and me. But you have this agenda being pushed in a very big way. Now, the Kissinger connection is important because Kissinger was a professor at Harvard's Kennedy school of government. And guess who one of his star pupils was? I was going to guess either Satan or Adolf Hitler and I realized neither of those really would make sense.
"government" Discussed on Don't Worry About The Government
"Federal government now all of them are going to be required to be vaccinated and the question is. How is the government going to check to see that. All of its contractors are vaccinated. You know i. I like thinking about this from a federal level but then i'm also thinking about this from a certain governor's opposed this on a state level. And how they're going to want to oppose this is not going to be opposing federal employees. They're gonna want to impose this on behalf of a state employees. And i think this this the battlefront on this is to specific state by state to lose that frame on the as far as the republicans are concerned. I think it's valid as far as just looking at this in the aggregate. But i don't think this is going to be fought in that way however valid. That is yeah. i'm with you i. I think the governor's right now. Wanna fight this entirely around the employer thing in part because the governor's wanna start coming off his more business friendly. Which is the thing that having real issues with Who's the employer with the federal employees. Right that i and and and who are you defending. Yes and at that point when it then on the implementation side. I think the question is going to be like. How is the government agency in question going to ensure that the contractor is vaccinated. And it's not necessarily that tricky. They just need to get the card but it's still. It's still implementation. Hurdle i love. You really clear as we're talking about all this. I was thrilled. When i got off the plane and i heard that biden was finally doing something on covert nineteen so this this is all wonderful next and just kind of keep it positive here. I know i. I'm just as far as as far as my my take. Your this is just as how how i expect the republicans to oppose this. Yeah this is not what i hope happens. No no i just wanted to be clear. That of the top line i. I should have probably gotten that in sooner here next we have. We have the requirement for employers to provide paid time off to get vaccinated so this is easy like there might be implores. You fight this i. There might be employers. Who are worried about this as a precedent but the actual time that it takes to get vaccinated especially in this scenario is a grand total of maybe two hours of paid time off for each employee. It is not hard for employers to meet this like. I had to do this for different job. Essentially at my employers strong request and willingness to buy lunch and pay us for the time we were out. So i was like dude free lunch. I did this for the flu. Shot so i don't think this is some crazy overreach. I don't take this to be challenged. And i thought this is another sound of policy. You know if you think about this in comparison to for instance state lottery which has been done if you were to even give more. Pto for this even though you don't need it if the outcome is more people get the shots. Because they're like. Oh i have to do is get the shot. Negative four hours. Pto like i would even be curious if that many more people get shot because you give in rationally like if you give someone the whole day off to get this shot like that is irrational but if three times as many people go get the shot do you care the only problem. They're essentially is that. You're asking the employer to pay for but like if the government. I guess right willing to pay for a half day i feel like a half is probably more reasonable given the varying pay scales or whatever. I think. That's very generous. And that's exceedingly reasonable to me. You don't have to work. You're going to get paid. Go have lunch after and prior to this on a previous episode of the actual full length. Don't worry about the government podcast episode entitled sticks and carrots. I talk about a whole plan of just paying people. Like i was against lottery system one because i don't like that it's like your you get a chance to get money like i think it's stupid people can see through that. I like the idea of giving people money bam right there and this is even better. It's like do you not feel like lifting boxes all day rolling. Get the shot and right now especially when we're looking at the groups of people who still haven't gotten the shot yet. There are a bunch of people who will get under this plan at least a couple of hours Free of manual labor to go and get the vaccine which will be good for their health so sort of like a. It's a win win like this. I my only thing to your point is. I would rather see this stretched out to like. It's a half day off to go and get the vaccine low. Yea i thinking about this just as far as mere experiment like what would happen if i was legislating. This this is a half day If i could tell it employees you're off at noon today. If you go and get the vaccine. I think you now all of sudden like mad you see you see little power band break real quick with all right later guys. I've already the backsied in. Here's what you do. You either say that on a friday morning or you say that on sunday night on behalf of monday morning. And you're like that's that's what they'll do it. You know this you do that for one month by the end by like that fourth friday. Everyone's like no dude i like. Am i really going to be the idiot. Like i have my principles. I will work all day friday afternoon. I even have to be baited like this but when you think about al them in the delta variant in kids not having the option and like at some point i do not care..

So he's he's went after more than three hundred different journalists as well and lawyers and businessmen who aren't allied with his political party and he's also accused of using pegasus spyware to which he purchased from the israeli government to tap the phones to mine all this personal data. He's using the power of government in a really really malicious way. And what all this signals to me. This has been a long set up here but all all the signals to me is whether or not trump runs again is really sort of a will-he-won't-he sort of boring conversation. Because the reality is is that the true deep embrace of any means necessary minority power. That is in the republican. Dna now cheat to win if you got but above all else. Don't lose if you know if you must win irv you must cheat sheet. I think there's nothing nothing new under the sun there. I mean in the in the previous generation. It was william william f. Buckley writing about pinochet and franco like The the the the right wing a the right. The most right-wing mouthpieces always have had a funding relationship with a fascist dictatorship. You know but that was that was always with the hope of seeing what that might look like in practice in america. We're now right after doing that. And so i'm with you very much rhymes with yesteryear but we cross this very important door here. Labelled trump and trump matters because he is actually experiment in practice Did you have the first of all the the capital officers who committed suicide. I mean january. Six failed because a handful of officers and the generals in the military stood up and did the right thing and and it's clear that they're not getting the support they need while we hear mostly thinks that you know there needs to be reformed by the leasts like we owe those people.

"To hoping. Cnn gives them the shove him. And jim acosta. Jim mccaw like look for as strongly as i have gone after rhonda santa's on their show it of any what things i've been kicked loving ron to santa's i do not know what show you've been listening to. I thought a costa's line of can we call this the santa's variant to be absolutely asinine. It's global variant. it's ridiculous it's gratuitously political. It's not you know the defense was floros. The epicenter of cova the country. Yes i know it was radiating kobe earlier in this episode but that does not excuse naming the variated after one person early on in the pandemic it was new york and la and there would have been much much handwriting over over at being the the l. a virus or the new york virus or any. There's a reason we don't name these after locations anymore. beat onto being like negative like negative. It's wrong it's does not accurately reflect and that's why it inherently is negative because there is no way i mean even when you call the wuhan flu or whatever it stupid because like yes. It technically came from that region but like that region also has nothing to do with the actual origins of the corona virus which is a virus existed for hundreds of years. Well yeah you know cnn. I don't pay a lot of attention to what i dip in once in a while for the show or whatever you know i look and go. Wow you guys are really terrible. Reacted to fox news by trying to be like them just on the left caring for your side and i mean there's a whole series of shows that could in should be done on the state of in the problems it's causing. Yeah i think this is a fair point to. Cnn is essentially cheering for the democratic party. But because they're still trying to position themselves as center unlike msnbc which is sort of cheers for the democratic party. Like cnn on balance has people on their that pulls the democratic party to the right slightly. It's essentially like the network for joe biden to watch when he feels like msnbc's giving too much heat like alive cam going like a split screen where what's trump watching on one side in what's biden watching on the other and just like a live view of that. Cnn the most viewed news network in delaware next. This is it. This is an important topic so third police officer who responded to the. us capitol. Insurrection has died from suicide. According to the metropolitan police department like they are getting hit. Really hard by this and this is a thing with these. Suicides of officers responded this day that essentially keeps the tragedy fresh raw in real for the entire police department officer guenther has. She was found dead in his residence on thursday. July twenty ninth. Lord knows what he heard that day during attack. This is the third known suicide of an officer who responded to the capital riots and this is the second known suicide by police officer specifically That i want to say more as the backdrop for what happened this week. Our next big topic. We ended the last episode. Where i did a brief recap of the importance of the flight. Ninety three election essay by michael anton that was published at the claremont institute briefly prior to the election under a pseudo roman alias and that has been a forerunner for an increased amount of intellectual inc being shed by the right around revolution nationalism. The need to take take control of the cockpit just this last week christopher roach more normal conservative or whatever but like you know not alex jones the salazar off option to survive days left us threat. We need to be committed to acquiring using power in service of a counter revolution. Roger kimball who wants a bow-tied wiebe. At some point. There will be a revolt the longer this arbitrary insanity persists the more violent. The reaction will be july thirty first. Three twenty one. The most cheerful headline i have seen in. Weeks was on glenn. Reynolds newark post calm. No karen were not masking again. I hope he is right. I do wonder though. I have no doubt that the second part of this headline a winning. Gop message for twenty twenty two and beyond is correct. It's at least correct if it was expressed as conditional it would be a winning strategy if it were adopted as real notes. There's a great deal of pent up frustration and resentment over the inconvenience loss of freedom and the general climate of pestering that the government's pandemic response led to. Yeah these guys. Continue to seed. The wind to quote break cavanaugh. Little reference from his confirmation hearings for this idea that it might be okay you know to maybe do a little revolting balti. And they know what they're doing because there was one just seven months ago eight months ago. Now yeah about eight months ago now so this week tucker carlson one of the highest rated cable news hosts in television went to hungary and platform is the wrong term. We'll talk about platforming more here. I guess i guess they sort of did like a joint venture. It may be the best way putting you where tucker carlson had on the president of hungary who is embroiled in a tough reelection campaign. I guess you could say spot for him and proceeded to applaud. Viktor orb on and say that. This guy is essentially governing his country. The right way and his version of the right way Just to relocate here. Victor von has placed restrictions on press freedoms. He's.

"In supreme court precedent on public l. stuff and businesses. Want to get back to normal. I think that. I think that what's gonna wind up happening because the federal government doesn't really have the balls to actually do this. The state and local governments don't The your jim doesn't really have the power to i. Think it's gonna come down to big companies saying if you want a job you're gonna have to go get back sedated. In that will stand up at the door because the republicans have spent twenty years. It saying corporations can do whatever they want in. So i don't think i think that'll pass muster at the court so god help us. We need amazon at will employment really Coming back around on the on conservatives in labor it's gonna be really hard for them to make a case against this. And i mean business. In this case i'm speaking with like the capital. B. is in a popular position in the sense of. I believe it is the broad truth that most people liberal and conservative alike would like to be able to again. Find a way with the aid of vaccinations to engage safely in society was still added caution but not live in. Let's say red light anymore and live in yellow light where we have mass on where we have vaccines on. But we're working and we're still engaging with each other and we're trying to be as safe as mindful as possible but like we're still being social creatures a. I'm still out there teaching guitar lessons. You know we're doing stuff. We're still making food serving it to each other all these we want to be able to. We want to be able to go and sit down restaurant. We need to get a poll. I don't need to see strong support or a slight support on this one either. Like i got a real good sense that most people wanna be able to do this stuff in some way even if it is in a limited way and i think broadly speaking yes there are people who are going to be unhappy a little bit that there are limits but they would prefer limits the nothing and there are going to be people who for many the limit is going to be the sweet spot which is basically. It's a utilitarian argument and in this sense utility. It's populist there's actually a populist argument you're doing what would generally broadly make people feel good. People won't be able to work make income you know. I want to be able to play shows again. That's still kinda like tough going here and that affects my income. I want people to be able to go to concert venue safely. You know they show concert venues down again. that's bad. business is going to have america. Broadly speaking on inside with this idea of vaccines mass. But like open still working in stuff is the way to go especially absent. Any sort of notes are rumblings on dc of future kovic stimulus spending right. Now if this is where we're at this is clearly the best path forward and you know it is what it is will. Yeah you're gonna sanders. Couldn't turn this into a discussion about medicare for all. I still don't understand how you know. The democrats don't have any sort of answer it. I think it's just gonna come down to big corporations saying you're gonna get vaccinated finances gonna fall in line behind it. I don't think like the next story biden saying that they're going to withhold federal federal funds. Does anybody believes that. He has the stones. Do this it's weird. It's that that that mechanism like that. Particular stack of like trying to withhold medicare cash from nursing homes. Like i don't necessarily love the idea of like sanctioning our old people. Though i mean i want them i want them to vaccinate like i want them to vaccinate their workers. I want them to require that. Were to be vaccinated. But i like it's such. It's such a blunt instrument. It's its own like non targeted. It's literally like sanctions on like that. That particular route like withholding cash to nursing homes is like just galaxy brain. What makes my brain hurt. Is i still think as i weave through the moral maze there that it's actually right or better than the alternative of leaving the elderly to the tender mercies of the delta variants. Would it be better to give grandma less cast. And she needs or chill. Her of. I'd say either as good mind you. But but in this scenario it's not like they're they're giving the facility that provides grandma services less cash so it's grandma's not going to get less cash it's going to be like you're gonna have these These institutions that don't necessarily want to comply cutting more quarters. I just. It doesn't seem it doesn't seem like a win. No no it doesn't it. You're absolutely right. Being the disappointment year and a half into the pandemic was where we are. You know it's not a choice.

"We don't anticipate that. I've got to say i'm impressed with the admiral robert willard who's head of the us pacific fleet For not laughing frankly later when he was asked for clarification. A spokesman for the congressman. Johnson said he meant that adding about eight thousand marines and their families. The population of guam could be a tipping point for the island's infrastructure. An ecosystem that he was quote obviously joking decipher sound. He's not necessarily like a thought leader inside of the democratic party. He's got some political clout out of the cbc. But he's not necessarily the guy who's advancing all the policy and everything like that. What is much more likely. Is this bill. A judiciary proposal made by the twenty six member judicial conference of the united states in march. That's the conference. It was taken up by the senate democrats which will allow for seventy seven new district court seats. It was co sponsored by a republican senator. Todd young from indiana. You probably haven't heard of and his fairly conservative. It would only allow the president to fill thirty nine new seats in twenty twenty five and then the remaining thirty eight seats would be filled by whoever. The next president is in twenty twenty nine so todd young is willing to give the democrats what they want after two more elections if they can win both of those and the democrats have taken this deal or this seems to be the deal that is on the table and much more likely to make its way through the senate at this point. It's almost like the republicans had a plan for astor mitch. Mcconnell appointed all those judges or something. And we're still waiting for that. Joe biden blue ribbon commission on how to reform the courts to come back with With their findings. I'm looking forward to it. I i i i imagine bowl simpson level. Work will be coming our way. He's going to expend the court just any minute now. I check the news every morning when i wake up on just any day now. The one thing. That's notable from this article that i am focusing more in on what i think is more likely is that johnson and other democrats are in favor of like vastly expanding the lower court system so i obviously the supreme court expansion. Let's be real here. It should happen. It will not happen. I think anyone who's kind of seriously associated with the show. Especially if i ask you to pull your wallet and put the money on. It would be pretty real that the court is going to be nine seats for the foreseeable future here. We're stuck in this veracity. But i do think that it's much more likely More likely than zero but beyond that like actually within the realm of possible that we see we see an expansion of the lower court system on some level or creation of a new circuit court system. Here at some point during this congressional term if the democrats can get their feet underneath that that's just not thinking about that. Is that if if a lot of the stuff that's being pushed up to the to the supreme court is an awful lot of it is is because nothing is going through. The sanish are the so. The problem is is the senators soda where they're not bringing in laws that are actually the situation. So it's given the giving a space for people to bring the cases so whether it's roe v wade got should have had law brought in in the last for thirty thirty five forty forty five years and other ones since then. That should have been clarification. That's the the problem is with it. Which with the legislature have allowed basically allowed this power to get bigger and bigger as moon if rebalancing that as is more likely than the court. This is actually a really interesting point. Like one piece of analysis that i do think is worth noting of how we got to this. Point where roe versus. Wade hanks balance is yeah. Along the way here there really should have been more of an attempt legislatively to protect and strengthen row however rose support abortion. Support has always been sort of weird among the legislative class because like the the idea. The democrats being have uniformly in favor of abortion is sort of a commonly held perception now especially among the younger set. But like if you go back into the nineties and even in the arts and stuff there are lot of open the antiabortion democrats and if you go further back there are pro-life republicans like the bushes and stuff. Like george w bush was staunchly. Pro-life barbara bush was pro choice. So like they used to not be a political dividing but at the same time because what it was probably safer it was because there was support on both sides of the aisle and made it much harder to get a bipartisan piece of legislation through that supported roe. Because you had bipartisan. Opposition and bipartisan. Opposition is beautiful for fighting a bipartisan piece of legislation. Just i know back point. I you know i was listening to before whereby before row. Republicans were much more pro choice and even even even right down to the I think a lot of the religious right leaders where i'm particularly interested in in in the topic of abortion itself because it wasn't important to them so to speak for sam. I just wanted to interest in that say in ireland. We have similar problem. Avid piece law like row where basically people would chip away at it from all points and we ended up having a a constitutional amendment are basically we. We had A referendum just removes the remove the law and actually give the sensitive. Excuse me we sent to the parliament until they have to settle. And i was the way. Was we sort of took it out of the constitution altogether. I know you guys in ireland. You're used to making big changes much more regularly than we are. And i'd like to hear more about that at some point. But i hear you talk about constitutional amendment changed something. I can't even imagine that happening here. Any time soo- on anything. No but here's what's crazy about that if you go back to around the year nineteen seventy. That's only as far back as you really need to go. You can see several different. Constitutional amendments getting introduced in the passage of a constitutional amendment in the seventies like. It's it seems impossible right now and that is definitely a testimony to where our politics are at in america and they're in in a really bad place and a look at world news and a look really from a world perspective countries that analogize nicely to the united states or at least service useful prisons for understand the united states with key differences that we can kind of parse out analyze. Yeah you could see very clearly like our systems broken. Our to are two political parties. Like can't work together because one of them are domestic terrorists. I know i'm serious like big. That's like it's not even trying to hit that one like a punchline. People need to start saying yes and that's the other big problem is people aren't saying it so when i say something like that. It almost evokes laughter. Because it's like it's funny to why a political party domestic tears but then the other part is like. Oh yeah no one ever just says that. But that's the truth like it's so frustrating to watch the news. No i mean. I couldn't imagine the democrats after nine. Eleven go into guantanamo bay and meeting with the prisoners. And being like. We're going to get you out. You guys are innocent. So much has happened that it's easy to forget like they've been shooting up mosques and synagogues in like trying to overturn in election by forced. What what else do you call this. And i'm not excusing sanders supporter. Who went to shoot up congress by any but the overwhelming amount of this political violence were see is the for right and that's what terrorism is in people are afraid to call what it is and that's really dangerous. Yeah no that's a great point on so like the bernie sanders congressional shooter. The center supported congressional shooter. That was domestic terror. To i would one hundred percent support. That guy getting brought up on domestic terror charges. But here's the difference between that guy 'cause like one of the republicans like to do is complete these two things in both sides right..

"Of these passageways that are thawing out thanks to our dying planet up north where russia and china share see space and both of them. These are new c. Passages both countries would see value and utility in laying claim to and essentially. It's a potential for them to be at heads with one another relatively quickly. If they don't figure out a way a way to create some sort of detente on that And that will be interesting to i mean. Look if there's if there's drilling options up there Let's say there's a really big oilfield up there that gets discovered you might go well. China and russia. Talk it out for a while. They you shared me. They have shared enemies and that sort of thing perhaps but when there's a large natural resource and its smack dab in the middle of their borders i think whatever niceties they had formed. We'll go the way to the wayside in favor of traditional nationalism. One st ism and that means fighting putin needs china. More than china needs futon. And i think that's understood by both of them at the moment. Just is my read on her but yeah stage if they distemper like saudi levels of oil under the ice somewhere then. All bets are off. Yeah here's the flip of that though. Putin needs oil more. China needs oil. So that might it might very well be a situation where putin needs to fight. No i mean the russians. Very well could find themselves. They're back against the wall. Where like this is not optional. They cannot just punt on this. They have to fight for it. I don't want them to drill. This hypothetical oilfield period right like that's not going to be the way it'll play out if there is this oilfield there. We're all learning what we think should happen in. What we know is gonna play out or vastly different. We all just have to adapt to that new reality. So that's a perfect pivot real quickly to a domestic story here for your move onto the next segment here and that is the addiction moratorium. So what should happen..

"Are starting to travel a lot more. So you're now you're now talking about people who have accident bringing essentially the delta variant around much more than they were before and though they're not sick they are spreading hours a mask usage over where you're at in bar it is. We've never had outdoor maske in ireland. But it's indoor and it still in place you if you're going for a meal because we've only we've only opened restaurants last week. Indoor dining is only opened and you sign in at the door we have a. We have an app now. So and we have a certificate of vaccination so when you go to when you when you go to a restaurant you show them your your digital certificates and you sign in and you're still wear masks to they're put in your cease and then you can take your mask off teas so but but people are doing like. There's no like as yeah. Yeah there's there's there's a couple of there's an anti there's like an anti covert group but they if you if you ever look them up online to use usually to bush people's jokes you know there's a so there was an election recently and they didn't get the deposit back because they you know less than one percent and there's a there's a funny video tried to remember the woman's name. What is one of the antivirus people. But she was trying to get in without wearing a mask to count center and the guards are police. Wouldn't let her in. And she barged into the police and accused him of rape. So that's the third the but of other people's jokes here too. It's just that they're seventy million of no more poorly they're enabled here by obviously donald trump. But marge retailer. Green matt gaetz. Paul gasser louie gohmert. Tucker carlson they have a lot of elite people. The same people who like to act like they're so populist and they're against the blue checks they have a lot of blue checks and people who wear suits and people right around limousines really endorsing them and that is something like when i watched world news you just yes obviously still liberals conservatives in other countries but like you just don't have the anti mask kind of concerted messaging that we have here and you know i think defend bars point. I imagine most people who were like looking at the. Us numbers from with the eyes of a european. You go. it's obviously y'all's culture stupid really. You guys are debating this like. It's you this. Is you and just like in the uk and in ireland we would have the same questions divided parliaments and stuff but there's no real divide when it comes to corona virus. You you look in the uk. You'll see labor party will agree with the tory party. And they'll follow and support on the same in orland. People have debates about the level of Risk and how long should be kept in place like our payments and stuff like that but generally there's no there's no debate over over to the basic facts you know and in reality. Some of the people the likes of ingenio. Dr darty is worn. And john waters brought cases to our high court and supreme court and they've lost every time and again like i say the figure of fun and there's no news network supporting them you know. And that's we don't have. We don't have immediate. That supports that that's really important too is on one of the major news. Networks the network that has one of the highest rated shows in cable. You have a clearinghouse of people presenting the anti vacs position the fair and balanced network actually massively over represents In imbalanced way the vacs position. Well beyond obviously would. It's actually helped the medical community but like way more than fifty percents and fox. Tr- much like msnbc msnbc tracks almost exclusively democratic voters not every democratic voter washes msnbc. You can vote for the democrats. Never watched their crappy network. Lord knows i do it Ditto with fox there lots of republican voters..

"This point. If you've got the vaccine you should feel pretty good that you will recover from this and not need to go to the hospital. At any point. During that process the hospitalizations especially among vaccinated people are strikingly low right now even with the scare headlines and stuff that are being put out when you actually drill into the numbers on those very very that said I think of course. This is what we're talking about on the last episode sticks and carrots. The question remains. How do we get people to get the vaccine. Let's let's stop there. We'll we'll get into the delta vary part of this More broadly speaking. I wanted the figures similar. To what we're we're we have an and began the the figures there three times a number of the start of the month in the last just the last two weeks they've doubled and then tripled again But again the hospitalizations going a much lower rate here in terms of getting the vaccines. Obviously we've now passed out the states in terms of the numbers per per head. We haven't had the same tailing off because we don't have the same volume of vacs publicity. You know. I think there's a couple of people in orland that are like the leaders of us and they believe that most the cases are caused by wifi poisoning so i like her american listeners. Here i think a lot of times we go boar shots british trump. But like even johnson's like get the vaccine even though he's like a meandering with umbrellas and having other broader boris johnson. Type of issues. He's still like get the vaccine right. It is if you look at if you look at the stats further. Last in time you can see taylor off in. The states is incredible compared to european union's ahead uk and israeli obviously the top of the charts for say most of europe is now ahead. We have elders. Half the population is fully vaccinated. May be neuter at our say fifty. Two population is one vaccination so where now at the stage. now we're moving onto over twelve. We hadn't given them at all so we're looking by the end by the end of august. We'll be probably around around seventy eighty percents. You know so that seems like a very eighty percents seems basically impossible right now in the united states. Right robert no it is it does my. I was wondering like what what are they doing. In deep red areas where people won't get vaccinated to make aunt staff hospitals which vaccinated people like. What is that looking like. And what will that look like. Because i mean what happens if the hospital has to closed. Does that make people want to go. Get the vaccine. This i mean. I reminded us of the conversations that we had at the start of this last year. Which the the real issue for rural populations is going to be one a false sense of security because they're not as near airports they don't have as much in and out traffic which means they're going to have relatively lower levels of virus load in their municipalities and localities i think and then that gets factored in with okay risk calculation. It's relatively low risk. I could probably go out to denny's and not my mask on based on the cova numbers of my county. This is true in texas to like dallas is one thing but like if i went an hour thirty went rural during that ninety minute drive i could drive to a part of the state. That basically has no kobe. Nineteen numbers right now and so you always have had that reality and then that ports onto the cultural mindset because of their the people that they trust the tucker carlson's the donald trump's and any number of the other large antibiotics voices in this country. Those are like two of the biggest with the largest platforms tucker carlson. Well the highest rated shows on tv casting doubt on the vaccine's they are really going.

"We weren't even in spite. Even without the raiders. We we very clearly want. But the route i have to give it this sunny bunch sunny bud best like i want nothing more now than you hear. Donald trump explain how to set up like a wi fi in your house. Just just like basic wi fi your house right fish. You need to contact u. s. p. I he doesn't have any idea what it's it's funny because a new talking point that he's very fond of now he explains with disinformation does like it's. It's actually very devious. Because it's like literally like it's like he says i am lying to you essentially and now that i said i am lie to you. Let me remind you once again. That i won the election in twenty twenty and they say yeah and they say yeah here and he says donate here and he's taken in seventy five million dollars to his pack. He is not used any of it for recounting. But he now has seventy five million dollar war chest for when he runs for president which look which was his spending habits last about two we. Yes but the other flip of this year man is that seventy five million dollar headstart basically makes it impossible for all but like two or three republicans to have any prayer of seizing the nomination. From him i mean seventy five million dollars is so much money it requires you to go to the donors and say like santa's to trust me. I know how to beat donald trump. I sometimes i'm a little scared of him. But if you just give you one hundred million dollars. I've got him beat like no because they need to give him. Seventy five million again started so then he actually needs to be going actually just need one hundred million and one hundred fifty million of like it's not i mean it's a tough sell. Would they better off they. They know trump. It was back to them. It was bad but they survived. Which is i mean. Look kovin at this point in positioning for twenty twenty two twenty two twenty four. It would be really really awesome as someone anyone on the west learned from the lincoln project in how to go nice out on who though i trump at this point i mean i think he's damn near untouchable. It's the only question he's untouchable loop base. But there's a lot of people who asked her january six specialties. Like did they don't want to be part of that in like if you can't look through all of the media and everything that's come out in find good attack ads. There will swing jinro elections. You're not trying. I mean look. I still think trump winning the nomination which i think is the likely is not me. Saying trump wins the election. If you runs against joe biden again. I think he's. He's sort of a fail guarantee. I think it's really hard for him to be. Joe biden honestly Had the string of he stopped winning for one second. Once you stop once you stop the winning it's real to get that like incumbency. He's also really powerful advantage in our country. I i may just is so. Yeah now i mean that's the other thing. I don't think it's possible to stop him from winning a republican primary if iran. So i think trying to do that as a waste of time. I think gearing up for agenda attacking him. Now you actually to that point there probably is no real harm in attacking him now because if he loses he's not going to stop attacking the republicans for betraying him do. Do we think it's do. We think that a who will be the more easily defeated republican candidate for joe joe biden to go up against like is is joe biden. Do do we want the the threat of another another specifically trump presidency. Or do we want the do. We want it to be opened up to like but but it's But a republican could do it better. I think i think you need. I think we need trump to run. Because i think joe a biden or a harris is going to be way too vulnerable it just to just to the swings partisanship. I think you need the trump. You need the threat of somebody. Shittiest trump actually get you through. Yeah i know this is. It's a this is a very complicated question. I mean it's complicated morally complicated. The way away like party goes the appropriate strategy in a primary. Like like if i was going to go and vote in the republican primary the appropriate strategy for me to do is go and do harm education to go in and vote for the least. A- barent republican. I can think of on that ticket. Who has the chance of winning the nomination. And so if it's not because trump like openly violated the constitution and like allies about election results in a way that like obviously ron santa's is a piece of shit but i don't think he'd like lie that he won the election him probably but like you know like mitt romney absolutely not. So if it's romney or trum let's let's use that. For example here my mo responsibility as far as i see it you gotta go. Vote for romney. Your vote for romney. Now when i won this back. And i go who i think has a better chance of beating joe biden. I think a guy like mitt. Romney has an infinitely better chance of beating. Job is excellent then re rewound now old donald trump who is wrong as fuck on cove. It who like their. We saw four years of him was like he's not quote unquote something new. He's more of the same. And i think that that thing is very like. That's very appealing on one level. Because i really as strong as he is as tough as es in certain aspects the idea of donald trump the new flavor in town. That's gone and i don't think he can beat joe biden. I don't think he can make the case that he can do. A better than joe biden. Because i think americans have decided in a very strong way. Even if you want to about the electoral college different thing. Look at the popular. Vote the starting position. We have a good sample size of what americans think of joe biden hypothetically even versus donald trump in practice. So when they're going to vote for joe biden in practice against donald trump in practice as middling as the biden presidency is and i have many problems with it. I have a hard time going. Americans go impractical. Joe biden is actually worse than don't trump. I think they're still going to be on that side of the ledger. And while i think there'd be some slippage. I also don't think the was just ready for something. New dumb argument that gets made to the swing. Dependence will be able to get made with the same degree of efficacy because you know that donald trump is not something new. He was actually something old. And if you've now gotten the vaccine which over fifty percent of americans have and you're who's gotten the vaccine is concerned that other people are getting the vaccine. You probably sue some degree internally. Say out loud like that but like if you actually had to like write it out for two or three paragraphs that everyone anyone would ever.

"Had smoked cigarettes. You put more foreign substances into her body and that would be perfectly legal. According to the us anti doping agency absolute. No i mean it. It is absolute cowardice by the white house. And not take a position on this and now i will play the game that august somewhat tedious. But i do think is clear vying. An exercise let us imagine just quickly if trump was president and all of this is happening man. I think he would revel in scolding richardson going. Those are the rules those. Are you know she shouldn't have been doing that. Yeah he's i mean he is such a teeth a where i mean but but trump trump going off and lecturing anybody about going off on the rules. I mean not the not the hypocr five. Yes central park says. It doesn't have to make sense. You're guilty even if the worst thing if you're black and have never spare chance to be condescending. Somebody of a different skin color. Yeah no no for sure. So i think yeah i. I was thinking about that. I couldn't get all the way there to painting you a full picture but like yep bind is out of step with his own party. On marijuana policy polling shows a strong majority of americans favor were legalisation. Biden is resistance resistance such calls because he likes to play the game on hard and his administration has refused to reschedule. The drug which the federal government considers an illegal substance with no medicinal value. Biden did however call for the decriminalization of marijuana during successful twenty twenty presidential campaign making the question. That does that mean in. Why aren't you doing anything about it. After he assumed office five white house. Staffers lost their jobs because they admitted to smoking. Marijuana a thing that This article sort of omitted during the screening process. They like they were told. Go ahead if you smoked weed just admit we just wanna make sure you're honest on this stuff. They're all like yeah like politics and we smoke weed like listen to podcasts. And shit and we live in an all. Those people live in states where it was legal and the white house didn't care about that once again. It's a moral judgment a moral judgment. It doesn't matter if it's legal. I mean i'm not sure if you hit on it while i ducked away for a second but komo kamala harris smoked weed. Kamala harris has been open about the fact that she smoked weed. Kamala hair is an. She's trying she's tried to be too. She's made up stories about smoking weed. She's still open about smoking weed like it's very. He has all about listening to albums. That weren't even out yet and smoking weed to them. Yes she was so into saying that she smoked that she told stories. That almost certainly are not true because they're not possible about smoking weed and this is happening to like. Let's not mince words. A black athlete. Harris is standing back and going. Well you know. Like i'll let jen psaki and joe biden. Take the lead on this one and you wonder you wonder okay. She's gonna get a pass on this one for sure but if a couple more things like this happen how long before this actually starts to put a little bit of heat on harris and they're like an or harris actually starts to rift because like for example lock matter is not going away de fund. The police type of issues police. Brutality issues are not going away. Harris is going to be tested and if biden continues to be like a marijuana luddite. Not actually a thing. Although i'm picturing angrily smashing pot plants and it's very funny to turn a pulling them all out furiously but when does harrison break away from him. I don't. I don't know when. I never never never dies. Yeah i mean. There's i mean i don't think there's ever a I don't think there's a a rising tide. i mean circumstances could certainly change. He could become very unpopular and she could see the way the wind's blowing and change. I mean she's she's a chameleon and the fact that she is at this level is purely because she like she. She turned around. She played the game and she got on board. I don't think i don't think she has. I don't know that she stays at this level if she steps steps off. The biden biden chip. So yeah i'm with you like the whole i think ultimately right i lost. She lost pete in she like she. She lost to everybody. She came in fifth and she came in fifth in her home. State in california like like. Let's say ten people were in the california primary right. I think here's finishes no better than fourth or fifth. Yeah i'm not trying to be like a dick or whatever like i. I saw absolutely no evidence that harris could finish better than fourth or fifth in that right. Yeah yeah she she absolutely but it's like california's a very progressive state on on the whole like take it taken as the whole state and you had at least too much more Much more progressive candidates. Then you had an actual real cat like i am established v establishment choice. Joe biden so like right there. That's just not even touching it. So yeah i feel you so let's talk about someone. I've been happy to not talk about but like now it's time to start talking about him again. He's back now. Trump is like like jaws in the summer. Don't come in for ron ron. Ron ron ron ron. Yeah his that. Trump shark is common for. Rhonda's said here trump is back he's doing rallies he is leaning into the one six stuff the way the media is covering him they are. They're going back to their bad habits like nowhere to tune in these rallies except like know a lot of people attending rallies like. He had a lot of people at this one here over the weekend. And he's like doing the who shot ashley. babbitt thing which is not some sort of nineteen thirties. Film new are but in fact like leaning into one six conspiracy theories and venerating the the protesters who invaded the capital on one six. That's gonna that's gonna get real weird with the with his back the blue stuff like the ven diagram of back the blue while actually. I mean the. The coherence of those concepts isn't necessarily very Very tidy but like the theoretically. We had a chat earlier today. About how this stuff doesn't actually have to fit together like when we're talking about oil shit like the one thing about this particular. Republican party is cognitive dissonance and even the highlighting cognitive dissonance. It's simply it is not fruitful in the way that broadly speaking the liberal left mind might find it to be. There's just really no other way of putting it other than republicans receptive to that. They don't care that trump says this and trump says that they're going to blame joe biden for high prices at the gas pump. And it doesn't matter that those high prices are exactly why therefore one k and their stock holdings in companies like exxon shell or up and that in order for those stock prices to be up and thus their dividends to be off and thus their overall net worth to be the way the completely offsets the gas price. It's actually good for them to be paying more at the pump. It's an indicator that things are going. Well they'll blame them. I mean i was just talking to. Let's say a family member and he said he was grousing about this stuff just today a these things happen.

"Putting us on the vulgar language. Listener would hear criticism of the team. The schools coaches and the school in a word or two criticisms of the rules of a community which she forms a part. Like i like a look How about the idea. Like you should be able. You should be able to say fuck school like eight online like you know. Let's not sit here. Every like the child is learning a very important lesson about democracy. Here i will say that. Thomas dissented saying that schools historically held expansive powers over student expression setting in eighteen fifty nine decision by the vermont supreme court against the student who called his teacher old clear. Thomas is arguing. That was rightly decided. You'd think that thomas wouldn't wanna go back to the eighteen sixties. And yet here we are. He's thomas such subordination tended to quote. Bring the masters authority into contempt. That's his language. I would make that clear. And the court said. Thomas wrote that mrs levi snapchat served a quote subvert the cheerleading coaches authority. Good i like cleared. Sow sleighs. Job clarence house. Next we had I guess we won't do that because it doesn't appear that they didn't even rule not one. It's one of those so considering all right we got centerpoint. Nursery versus has said soo- brand board struck down regulation. Giving union organizers the right to visit far mortgage on agricultural fields ruined that the nineteen seventy five california measure providing such access violated the growers private property rights. Now one thing that came out of this term that has like a very mixed bag here is. It's is a good term for property rights and when i say property rights. Look obviously if you don't property doesn't help you as much but there's some fourth amendment implications like involving colonel edge and stuff that will get to a little later on here that are actually good but they are all the same branch of things and one thing. That's very clearly bad is they're using property rights in privacy and that sort of thing as a way of going after union organizing here and this is a six three majority that broke down the six conservatives in the three liberal so steven briar please. Retire lee in. You know that You know amazon has five thousand lawyers looking at every period and comma in that room. Absolutely i mean. I think the that that one in specific because they're gonna want figure out a way to really stop union organizing a real kind of organizing efforts inside of their warehouses. And yes you can see how. How aggressive amazon is to already with fighting this unionization effort. No they they're released but was interesting is at the same time. I think they also need to be looking at that. Antitrust ruling to they came down on the ncwa is that might be something that might be sneaky firstly though sideways at a lot of ways that nobody's going to be ready. Yes no it really can. I mean there's a lot of the supreme court. The justices are being fairly clever the conservatives being clever about kind of breaking away from each other a little bit strategically but there are moments of clarity where we could see what they're doing and yes. There is a long game being here and roe versus wade. Still very much in the crosshairs. That's you have. Amc capital management versus the federal trade commission the court curb the ftc's longtime practice of seeking recover. Ill-gotten gains in court from companies and individuals who cheat or mislead customers up ending. Its enforcement approach In this case even the liberal side with it. So it's going to be interesting to see how the ftse goes after. Ill-gotten gains in the future not great now. This isn't a type of thing that it was that they try and flew up there to get the liberals to have to side with it input the liberals the corner here and the conservatives get slice away We have nestle usa versus dough. Justices ruled that food companies nestle. Usa and cargill cannot be sued in us courts for abuses allegedly committed in the ivory coast. We're group of six. Molly citizens accused the company of obtaining cocoa from plantations that relied on forced child labor. This is a big blow to labor rights and creates potentially a very large loophole for multinationals. Here going forward in labor laws If you can know that you can house in the united states. And if you're doing this and take advantage of this ivory coast loophole. You can do stuff using child labor. That's a big problem. And here's the big problem here too. The only person who actually cited against this is an eight to one decision taking guests. Who's the one. Tom del lido. That actually does support me. A lot of times from the right wingers. You'll get them agreeing with the left in with kind of a kind of a libertarian angle. They'll get there through so that sorta stuff doesn't actually surprise me much when like this is not on this but like this is a constraint of government issue and i'm citing with the left on this for these reasons we've seen that a law out of the right over the last thirty or forty years so i'm never surprised when i see so i'm got the article off here for most journal. Supreme court ruled thursday. That nestle usa in cargo in can't be sued us courts for abuses allegedly committed in the ivory. Coast the court in a decision by thomas so that the plants case didn't have enough connection to the united states to proceed nearly all the conduct that they say. Aiden abedin forced labor providing training fertilization tools and cash overseas to farms occurred in the ivory coast. This is the latest in a series of cases curbing alien tort statute a seventeen eighty-nine law that authorizes foreign citizens to sue in federal court or violations of international law. Let me see if i can get to a lido's descent here Do do elitist descent not mentioned in the wall street journal article. Unfortunately because i would've loved of here heard specifically what alito is objecting to or. Maybe he just felt like there wasn't standing in that actually. I bet you leaders descent was look. This is a law. It's a seventeen eighty-nine law probably written in supported by a number of founders in framers and if you put weight into the founders and framers like that and you're originalist like that textualist like that you know maybe you just think there's prevailing wisdom there. I'm just. I'm trying to into it it. We're not going to get lost in there forever. That's we got collins versus yellen. The court largely sided with the us agency overseeing fannie mae and freddie mac rejecting investor. Challenge the government's decision to channel the firm's profits to the treasury department but justices also ruled that the federal housing financing agency was structured unconstitutionally instead of the president must have the freedom to remove the agency's director at will so one of the big things that's happening here is a further expansion of these administrative branches. Being serving at the will of the president rather than this is the thing. That's always been kind of confusing about the administrative state any legal sense and there's not a great liberals. Don't have a great answer for this and it's like we do have to struggle with in the creation of the bureaucratic state during the twentieth century..

"It there and then ship it a mexico to be finished and then bring his ear. But it's not about trader manufacturing. It's just earn manipulate. And all the while. The chinese government was sort of like basically waiting. There biding their time. You know what i mean. Just start stockpiling their chips. Get their semiconductor chips. But bob their money like as we kept sending jobs over there. We were getting greg changer. Though it's great you know. China's great you know above and by the way this is going to change them. Don't worry i know you guys are worried that you know. China has nuclear weapons that they're trying to develop space program like they're pretty sophisticated computers and they seem to have a national surveillance system for one point five billion people in his credit score. I know you're worried about all those things but don't worry we're changing them with capitalism. I know. I know that they've been an authoritarian art of the world for the last six thousand years. The richard nixon is really smarter than all that. He's got this on locked. Let's just go with. This is a country with an imperial tradition and expansion expansionist tradition a strongman tradition whether it is kings into emperors and also necessarily. So this is why like the boxer. I mean i don't oversimplify. The last seventy five years of chinese communist history here but like part of the reason why the boxer rebellion was really good doomed to end up like maoism or someone is is because like democracy is sort of a learned thing like i mean like when we did the of goldberg thing that didn't one thing that gobert got totally right is like why did stick in america. It's because everyone who's coming over here was the that was a seed that was in their head when they were coming over you had like minded settlers is so i mean i think i think why does it take in in some of these communist revolutions. Well i don't think you can just go from monarchy to communist dictatorship of the proletarian. I think what happens is when you do that. You end up. In dictatorship you get halfway there the dictator ship. You get a dictator. I mean also ross powers before centralized power. You know what i mean. Sooner or later you know the best government. The world's benevolent dictator but sooner or later that guy died every every marcus. Really as yields accommodates odd. So go back to the justice department. Here merrick garland backed away from a comprehensive review of the actions by the trump justice department. Once again the by the administration really running away from the bigger issues here garland noted. However that the department's inspector general was already investigating related issues including secons attempts to overturn the election whether trump had improperly used apartments power to investigate and prosecute just one note of a thing that they might want to look into trump has aids in two thousand nine hundred to look at what just the justice department and the fcc could do to punish saturday night live in other late night shows for mocking him. I'm bringing this up one this one. Not because it's major but because is extraordinarily petty. I wanna be clear. He watched a rerun of saturday. Night live in march twenty nineteen and then trump pleaded that the episode was quote not funny slash no talent and that kept quote knocking getting the same person emperor disease me over and over without so much of a mention of quote the other side of because you know when someone's doing an impersonation of you need to be fair and balanced and show the other side then ends vote should federal elections commission and or fcc look into this according to people voted with the matter after tweeting that trump then asked advisors and lawyers about what the fcc the court systems and the department of justice could do to investigate the shows trump had to repeatedly be advised. The shows are satire which is a form of protected speech. That's not surprising at all. I mean there's there's no part of that that's what what should be. Shocking to people is that we are at a point where this is like does not beggars belief in the slightest like donald trump. We all know absolutely one hundred percents would watch a rerun of something making fun of him and go like how can i get revenge on those bastards. Well in like you were saying before you know look at should we deal with saudi arabia or saturday night live. I don't it's kind of a toss up. It's hard to pick what they're basically the same right. Okay now too vivid. More serious things that i do think needs to be looked into right. It involves mark meadows here. This is fairly. He let me read a little bit of this. This is from keep track a celebrated on celebrated on read. It does really well source stuff. they're not doing as much during the vitamin which would do more but this during the trump was really well done on december fourteenth way twenty electors in each state certified the deal the electoral college votes. It was also the day that trump announced that bill bar will be resigning Be replaced by jeffrey rosen. Newly obtained emails revealed that less than an hour. Earlier trump sent an email to rosen. We're talking points claiming quote intentional fraud and corruption of the voting machines in michigan. The email documents concluded that michigan cannot certify for binding trump then urge the justice department to file a lawsuit with the supreme court to nullify the election using official channels and a private attorney depressure. Doj officials. This is probably might be rudy. Might be the other one sydney powell on december. Twenty ninth trump sent rosen the acting deputy. Ag richard donahue in the acting solicitor general. Jeffrey wall to draft a lawsuit asking the courts. Declare that the electoral college votes. Were cast in georgia michigan wisconsin. Arizona nevada in pennsylvania cannot be counted..

"They are going to try to silence on that have global implications and it's going to be dangerous for all of us well. Yeah that's why. I think we're doing things like building chips. Apps here in. America is because one of the really important lessons of kobe. Is that having all of your manufacturing have a choke point for stuff made by. China is a huge problem from a national security staff. I been part of the semiconductor shortage. Here that i fall especially like come my investment life. If you really get down to it a big part of it goes back to china. Try to get really heavily into semiconductors themselves and being you know being kinda stingy on rearers theoretically they could loosen up the market again. Theoretically i i don't think they will. I think we are now in a semiconductor war so to speak which and like look. I think it's good and important that we decouple or manufacturing from china and. I think that it was always a mistake to i think it's probably it's immoral from a labor standpoint to offshore your labor production but from a geo-strategy standpoint it's a major strategic mistake to offshore your labor to china of all places. Well it's not trade. It's just currency manipulation. That's all it is. You know you're just making it over there because the trade the dollar trains it of way that it's labor is worth nothing to us over there so it's cheaper to make it there and then ship it a mexico to be finished and then bring his ear. But it's not about trader manufacturing. It's just earn manipulate. And all the.

"I'm hoping that trump comes out and says that rhonda santa's has become a bit of a rockstar at some point because bad things happen. When trump says you're a rockstar is the of. You're getting too much oxygen. Let me yes. Stars fall serves fallen disintegrating and hit the asphalt baby ended. Santa's in a unique position. I think to straddle getting the support of trump's supporters in the support of people who don't like trump but our rhapsody and trump may try to cut him off at the knees just so he can grip. I mean if you look at the. I'm gonna i'm gonna call them the more serious conservative media like not maga- like the type of their the anti anti trump conservative media like national review. The stick they're trying to do try. To make academic they try sophisticate up the conservatism. They will have to use big words and yeah there has to be like complicated like originalist. Lots of 'isms lots of 'isms there's originalism and constitutionalism and things that have for all needs to all lots of lots of colleges. So i see them finding away to absolutely love rhonda santa's i think they would've liked nikki haley too but i think ron santa's seems to be the person that gravitating towards dissenters has done a job. I'm not very good guy. But he's certainly done a job trying to sanitize cove nineteen record. And i think he he never he didn't compare to trump. He is going to seem moderate to the republican electorate. And more importantly i guess the best way i could describe your senses is. He'll be like trump but he won't embarrass them and that was the one thing they didn't like when they said they didn't like trump's tweets. What they were saying is they didn't like how trump embarrassed them. Sometimes you know like nikki haley. The thing that she did was she bought into hard on the crazier stuff for this. I think it's hard to work in the administration or because the thing that disaster was able to do is use able to put out that ad where he's like. I'm teaching my kid maga- as like his first word but he never actually had worked in the white house with trump and working in the white house. Trump was basically impossible because trump will embarrass you in the end that haley hilly's mistake and the other presidential hopefuls. Who tried to go through the white house's mistake was you can't be that close to the sun. He'll he'll burn you. Speaking of stars no the sun the sun burns you dissent found a way to be in orbits and also right now the santa's has been doing trump favors mar-a-lago and tact protections and other things like trying to buy that. He's in florida so he can try to buy that. No there's a lot of their opportunities for disentis so it's interesting because he's now going to interact with biden potentially or add to go through a new cycle with by where he basically is going to have to just be nice job. Joe biden all week and in republicans fears. That's impossible because joe biden is a phantom president who is being propped up by a series of drugs and a team of fifty so the the sin here will be that descent. This is not going after joe biden. When there's like basically go after joe biden for you know that that's what's so so so those descent spend a week playing. Hide the bible yet. I the teachable moment. Here when we talk about history repeating arriving chris christie and barack obama in two thousand thirteen when the floods happened member. Just hugging barack obama and thanking obama for coming out and helping out with a natural disaster was a price to pay for chris christie. Yeah i mean you know you can talk about any of the other things that might have done along the way here But man for me it goes back to. He got the second. He hugged obama. It was over for him with the republican voters. Yeah yeah they want blood. They don't want hand you know. So that's descent is has to play hot. Maybe play hide. The ron like if i was if i were advising by if i was the team we'd be flying out the board of this week. If you like. We're here to help infrastructure weeks here. we wanted to. We wanted to a building and help. Reinforce all these buildings. This people in florida need to know that they are living in safe buildings. And we wanna pass regulation. I mean i would put. I certainly get to sit as the backpedal be like. We don't need regulations for buildings like this. I've thought about this obviously from a national tragedy stamp for politics standpoint. This is the game right. You know we need right clearly. We need to do building inspections clearly all. We need to reinforce these buildings. We need money coming to florida to help build new buildings so that people can live in safe. Stay the art infrastructure. Right ron right. Rod don't want that money you're on the right now. The democrats have proven that they will not go nights out. They don't know the syrians. Just don't know like send out sitting on c. Down there to do. This is going to be the only one. I mean she seems to be. She's the one person trying to push. Biden even bernie. Warren there look bernie as vowed away to get himself unfortunately having to work with joe mansion on this new. You know what i think is probably he. He could not turn a pandemic into a conversation about medicare for all during a primary and he's to overrun. Also turn that into more visits danny conversation with the democratic party once the democrats win in november though too. But you know what i mean like. You could have minimum right if you can't do employer. Aa how 'bout like medicare expansion down to fifty. Yeah no i mean a minimum starting the conversation on that and try at least ferret out. Who is not even in support of that obviously mansion in cinema. But like you know. Let's figure out more warner who are the other sticky wickets here. You know getting medicare down to fifty five. Shouldn't be that hard at this point even even before that you know. He kind of had a problem similar to trump. I mean. I liked the diane's ordered his policies that he could get people to show up for a rally but he couldn't explain to you how was gonna get legislation and then when it comes to like what we're talking about here at the santa's right like i just couldn't see a president bernie going down and bringing the heat onto santa's about we're going to build a new state ron and putting the screws to disentis which i think like. Ao does have an eye for and does get like this is like the policy is part of the game but the actual strategy here in the politics of part of the game to in this. Yeah the politics are you. Don't get you policy in place. If you know the court's gonna get struck that of course goes drugged out everything. You wanna do not winning elections and having court than strikes you down which is caused by not winning elections is a big problem getting policies that you want but like in this case you do have to go after the tall. We'd i think the democrats would be smart to essentially be playing whack. A mole here right now because biden is not a strong candidate. I think he's not a week. Candidates really easier. You're better off. Now than four years ago. Framing on this. So i knew. I don't think he was a strong candidate. In twenty twenty. I think was all tova and trump and people were so. I do think i tend to believe a little bit of that too so incumbency in his favor. He'll have are you better off now than you were four years ago and his everybody who have those things not in his favor. So you gotta weigh those two. And i think i mean look. That's complicated so our the democrats. I was thinking. Maybe it's this but maybe it's also this ivy playing wacko bowl on every single republican. Tall weed coming up from here until the primary season starts. So that when you get in there. It's thirteen little dwarfs the snow whiteness of endorse. I'm not trying to be sensitive if no if the democrats were serious about doing. Bow nuys outs. They'd send harris to florida digestive disarray. Yes yes and you hear sir. Now to of give a great on harris going down to the border look. I said the win win. The game is not the play but let us great on her playing the game..

"First from the aiding room here to start this episode of. Don't worry about the government. And i am doing so because we had technical difficulties on this episode yet again. I'm batting like five hundred here. Over the last four episodes this is not great. Five hundred not so bad in baseball in the world of podcasting. You know you'd like every episode to be more or less high quality audio. That was the thing we're generally going for. Had a nice little track record of that going into the zoom era. Things have been going fairly well. Considering the added complications of zoom zoom does create problems. Whether it's the video chugging and maybe screwing up the audio track which is a thing like that's the number one thing i'm worried about. These days didn't have too much of that with this broadcast however The issue that we had with this episode. Is that somewhere along the way in me. Try like calm down zoom and let me shoot a video episode. I must have unplugged my microphone. And then replugged it in but zoom did not toggle back to this microphone. That i'm doing the voice over on the audio technica twenty twenty instead kept me on my computer. Microphone which stinks and the audio. I'm listening to the audio. And i'm like this is not horrible but like it is bad compared to what you would expect from the host of a podcast and like look. It's one thing for the guests. Come in with this level of audio and if another panelists came on the show with this level of audio i don't think any of you would bat an eye however i'm kind of self conscious about the sort of thing. I want my audio sound. Good i want my show sound. Good mine part. My show sounded. Good is my audio sounding. Good and in this case i have failed and that irks me on some level But the episode to that i have here is too good to just be like well. We'll put this as a secret release. Or whatever i think. This is a pretty solid roundup of the recent supreme court term. It's over ninety minutes. I mean that's a lot audio to just go. Well let's not bring it to market. Because i screwed up my microphone settings so kind of stuck in a quandary here. I'm deciding on putting out more content rather than less historically actually kind of gone the other way less content rather than more like rather than putting out crappie shows the these lost episodes would get maybe thrown up on patriot or just memory old. I i didn't want to do that with this. I just thought this is a good show. It's a good show with a little bit audio issue. So i think of this like like a demo tape or a live set of a band. It's a pretty good little live. So google alive show tapes not great. You wish the tape was a little bit better but like the replacements are kind of kicking ask throughout this entire set. Little bit drunk. Little bit rowdy shred up a little bit. you know. just it's one way of of it some way of it anyways. I wanna thank you all so much for supporting the show. I will be back again here to do as i mentioned. wanted to. Follow up episode on some of the topics that we've covered earlier in the year. I'm actually going to review some old slates. Take a look at some old topics and go like all right. Let's do like ten minutes. Fifteen minutes a follow up on this topic. Let's do ten minutes fifty minutes a follow up on that topic. So i'll be back again sooner rather than later but for now i'm going to hand it off to less good audio quality chris and robert who was nice enough to join me on this show. I hope you all enjoy ladies and gentlemen hello again. Welcome back to. Don't worry about the government. My name is. Chris dove abruzzo. I joined with shadow. The cat in my arms right here and also joining me on the call once again is robert. What is going on robert. little hole. Thanks for having me chris. Good to have you back on the show once again here and shadow. I'm now relinquishing from his duties of helping us introduced the show. We are here for parts to. I guess this is a whole different show really at this point but like i had some of the stuff on the docket for episode five twenty five. It's now episode. Five hundred twenty six having some issues with numbers. Lately i discovered screwed up the main feed. Robert pizza vege here. But i got that back tracks. If you want to hear episode five twenty four you can hear episode five twenty four now episode. Five twenty five is out this episode. twenty six. You can go back and listen to five twenty four. Because it's it's about the ufo so if you're interested in ufo's ap's in on all that sort of thing. I mean i think that's an evergreen store. It's not like anything's really massively mood. All like let's start right here. Is like a little quick hot open since we're on the topic already. The actual government report or they summary of the report came out Did you get a chance to take a look at it. All robert no works been really crazy. What was okay so on episode five twenty four. I sort of posited that if i had to take a guess of how many incidents they had to be somewhere in like around one hundred ish and of which about twenty or so. They'd be interested in that they're particularly interested in and they didn't have good explanations for and that's basically what they came down with one hundred and forty incidences about eighteen to twenty one that really stand out to them because of unexplained velocities and some real questions about how the thing is that were documented or possible. What could possibly be behind them. However of those hundred forty that then leaves about one hundred twenty that they do have what. I'm just going to summarize terrestrial explanations whether balloons you know misreading bad. Sensors lights drones. Things that actually get talked about in unidentified let you can legitimately. She like drones creating negative space. That looks like a larger ship. But it's actually a closer drones working in a ring shape or cluster of drones. In like you know a twinkie shape. I guess rely go veterans seatac shape that is possible close or closer to the sensor. Then maybe they thought it was not look misery. He's on the sensor those things about twenty of them. They're still interested in and the big thing that sticks out to me when in that report is that the government maintains interest in de stigmatizing reporting by the military on the observation of these incidences so prior to this like around twenty seventeen or eighteen. They had already begun the process of quietly stigmatizing. This there wasn't really like media news about this or a lot going on about it but there have been already a bit of an effort to get that out in the open a little bit more among military and that process is being further. And i think the interesting question for those who think that. There's a terrestrial explanation for this is. Why is the military currently taking the process of de stigmatizing. This if it's like big foot or something like that told us which was brought up on the show here. The military probably wouldn't be taking these actions so the question that remains for me is isn't a military a state actor someone who has the technology and has really leaped the united states military in a meaningful way. And that's what's prompting the military to. Hey if you see this sort of stuff pleases clothes more often or is there something else going on that. We don't have a good. I'm just say terrestrial explanation for it or a pedestrian explanation for it or common explanation for it at this point. I mean like. I can only hazard guesses but i also there's one asked me for one that's like others earth like there could be things that are actually living inside the planet that we don't know about yet i know i know i know it seems far fetched but think about how deep the oceanus you know we had seventy percent of the planet like i mean far fetched but we there are limits to what man knows about even on the earth itself. So maybe there's a natural phenomenal explanation for it. Maybe there's a state actor explanation for it. But i there's this interesting lingering question of if it's nothing or if it's kinda like a a prop or something like that. Why would you need the military to report on it more like you know. Why would you know what will be the benefit of that. Will you know during the cold war. The ussr's military was largely made of paper machine inflatables but china is a much more serious threat. They're actually capable of doing stuff as we see them putting helicopter on mars. Yeah i mean that being said the chinese and they're tyco not program was way behind the united states. The part of the issue at the time on here is the nimitz carrier right around. That time the chinese were just starting the tyco not program like they were just trying to get satellites and stuff up and everything. So like i mean that's a that's a hell of a smokescreen. It'd be like well. We don't really get space but also we totally space i. I don't know i'm comfortable saying. I don't know but i did want to at least open with that because we did finally get the report and so one follow up. We had a passing here of notes. Mike gravel the internet legend. Migra vel passed ninety one years old..
"government" Discussed on Don't Worry About The Government
"Needs to occur mitch. Mcconnell of course to this point because bipartisanship works bipartisanship works mitch. Mcconnell said That he was optimistic about the the bill. But but he's gone from optimism pessimism as a result of the president's press conference. That's the one where he said. There's going to be reconciliation bill. Yes waltz stepped in totally democratic. Senator joe mansion. He eventually doomed the large bill because the upper chamber is evenly split between the two parties. The bbc is much better understanding american politics and a lot of american politics reporting so he told reporters thursday. That sounds extremely extremely high for us to take on that much debt. Yeah you know a good way to avoid. That would have been a repeal. The trump tax cuts like finance and fund. The bills. you're passing. Mr biden is already signed a one point nine trillion dollar conservative or corona virus. Conservative current virus stimulus check back in march by the end of july congress faces a deadline to raise the debt limit to two point nine so we might actually be facing a government shutdown here to this is a big problem and the other big problem now of course is the for the people act and on that front. Of course show matching opposes. This but like white guy doesn't see the importance of like my guy doesn't see the importance of you know having voting access in the history of that. Why did from virginia maybe not a revelation. Especially not when you're talking about joe manchin however when we're talking about president barack obama. I think it's really alarming to read the washington post. Here this is obama endorses. Senator mansions voting rights compromise barack obama praised joe mansions efforts scaleback. The sweeping voting rights. Bill skill back. Co back voting rights bill and hope of securing some republican support saying that the modified plan does include everything he would want but suggests that the stakes are too high to do nothing. Like maybe you would want to suggest that to joe manchin mansion has tried to quote. Come up with some commonsense reforms that the majority of americans agree with that democrats and republicans can agree with. I think this is the really important part. It's not about the majority of americans right. it's about the five democrats and five republicans that have to by the rules of democratic bipartisanship. Not by the rules. Republican bipartisanship shit on their own but by the rules democratic bipartisanship. We have to make sure every one of those ten patricians in the room whether democrat or republican see it and if so then surely us in the plebeian class we will follow along dutifully go. Yes they know what's best for us. Obama has said that he usually does not weigh in on the day to day strumming washington. But when he does he sizes joe mansion. What's happening this week is more than just a partisan bill coming up coming up to vote. The senate is poised to hold the test. Vote on tuesday to on that bill. A long story short it didn't pass and then biden. Imagine had another conversation. Let me see here. What else we got. We can't wait until the next election because we have the same kinds of shenanigans the raw january six if we had that for a couple more election cycles. We're going to have a real problem in terms of democracy long-term so like this is the ultimate problem if you really believe that there are shenanigans that brought about january six. You believe that. The georgia voting rights reform. Bill is an extension of those shenanigans and that there are clear statutes inside of the georgia law that are vindicating the big lie that the election was stolen. And then somehow we could just all the ballots and stuff like trump would have one and you don't have a rule that says this is the best practice without sort of being reflective of something. And if you look retroactive many of the rules in that georgia law males rules. Say pretty clearly that the big lie perpetrated by trump's people that it's a valid one and like that's a scary thing. Obama knows better. Democrats know better. I the biggest problem with this brand of bipartisanship is essentially serves as the handmaiden as the heat sink for the republicans and what they did the fact that you believe that the fact that barack obama believes in joe mansion and his belief that you can reach across the aisle and reach these people who won't even vote on a one six commission. I mean all obama to volunteer that we can't have another one. Six thing happened as he washed just as everyone else did people that he knows. Personally go in and vote that they're not going to investigate the one six commission and it's just going to be a pelosi only thing and like the house is going to do we'll show pony thing on it like yeah. No i think it's i think it's absolutely ridiculous And i you know i. I don't know how. I don't know how you reasonably expect stuff to get done. That said i like the fact that the reconciliation bill is in the hands of bernie sanders and bernie. Sanders has not been very good at using his bully. Pulpit in the past. It's frankly if he was better at that. I don't think i'd have. I mean policy issues. Decide if he was actually good at the politics of stuff. I think i would be very. Ib well beyond fine with bernie up my issue is that he's actually generally kinda like not great at the politics of stuff and it's tough we know when you have bad instincts and we use people with your is dixon. You're using the jurisdiction of a person who's got bad instincts. I see problems there anyway. That's just my thought on that. All right so we've done. That also mentioned his. I wanna do this. Imagined told the electric utility trade group that the administration is pledged to cut carbon. Emissions is too aggressive. Magid of course is to a major coal producer in west virginia and he's defended coal fired. Power plants at edison electric and he said the call is being singled out by environmentalists as a polluter but this global climate. Yeah okay but calls being us all over the globe genius like that's sort of the point here some of our environmental friends. They make us believe that we are polluting. The whole climate. Yeah you are you dope. The that's how this is the problem. Right like they say things and you can rebut their own argument with their own premises. Like i don't have to go and dig up facts but if you go this is global climate ipso facto. When i pulled the ocean am blue polluting the globe. You're arguing yes. It's smaller than you think. Because you're scaling it to america but america is part of the world environment. So you're saying it's this big in the american environment but there's no such thing as the american environment there's only the global environment in global environments this big but that is not the same as saying there is no pollution which mansion in centrists will turn around and argue to you to your face in their same sentence like. I don't know how to take these people seriously. I don't i don't and here. I'll end on this because we want to do the supreme court but mabel supreme court in the next episode here. Because this seems like a good byes is young quarterback. Do them all walk shows one. I hope you'll appreciate. I gotta get get up to do an hour on the mike and two after an hour. I'm already you know. I sip coffee and our chaplains and all that should aim was well like you know my voice go and i needed to take a break. We'll come back and we'll do the supreme court side of this year on the second show this weekend. Let's call out on this comal harris going into the border so if you're not extremely online you've not been following this and so like for my overseas friends i. I'll kind of summarize it like this. There has been a big push by republicans to start attacking comma harris ahead of time. Some believe that joe biden is not going to run for a second term and kamala harris is going to run as early as twenty twenty four. I think obviously the smart money knows the komo hairs most certainly be seeking the nomination again. Twenty twenty eight now with a much better position as mrs vice president versus someone who like in real danger of finishing fifth or sixth and california depending on how large the primary field was going into california. It out everyone there. I you know middle of the pack in california's a very realistic outcome for comma harris masterstroke in politics in my lifetime. I if i'm really saying this is a person who is destined to be a senator. Maybe go into andrew yang territory. I mean area like we're trying again in the second one really blames amount. Life call hair sold unbelievably high and got. What got what you needed. She's now the vice president. Republicans know that they need to go after her and they are and they have been going after her and the administration for not going on the border because they are now talking about the border crisis..
