"Has taken a much more aggressive approach than Facebook, especially lately, and it's really crack down on the president. It's put fact checks warning labels on some of his posts, and it also even blocked his son, Donald Trump Jr. From tweeting after he broke similar rules about spreading Corona virus missed information. So you know, I think we're just going to see kind of more of the stuff happen before the election. And what are we hearing from the Trump campaign about all of this? Well, the campaign sent out a public statement saying, Look, the president was stating a fact he was merely saying that Children are less susceptible to the disease, even though to be very clear. That's not exactly what he said on Fox News. The campaign also accused the social media platforms of being biased against conservatives. And that's something we hear from a lot of conservatives. It's not particularly backed up by evidence. But I think you know, look it. Just look at how the Trump campaign reacted yesterday when they were blocked from tweeting. It quickly removed the tweet with this video after it lost those privileges. That's an admission that this campaign really needs Twitter. You know, we no social media and in this day and age is already critical to reaching voters with a pandemic. It's even more clear. This is a campaign going to be fought online. NPR Tech correspondent Shannon Bond, Shannon. Thanks a lot. Thanks. 75 years ago. Today, an American warplane dropped the world's first atomic weapon. It exploded directly above the Japanese city of Hiroshima, instantly killing tens of thousands of civilians. That nuclear air strike and a 2nd 13 days later in Nagasaki, led to the Japanese surrender and the end of World War two. NPR's David well in the reports that what was justified by some then Is being sharply questioned today and a note The story includes graphic accounts of the aftermath of the attack. President Harry Truman was returning from an Allied Nations conference in Potsdam, Germany, where a demand for Japan's unconditional surrender had been refused. When he recorded this message to the American people. On August 6th, 1945. A short time ago, an American airplane dropped one bomb on here, Oshima And destroyed its usefulness to the enemy. Human then described the terrible new weapon that had obliterated 2/3 of Hiroshima. It is an atomic bomb. It is a harnessing of the basic power of the universe. It's explosion at 8 16 on a Monday morning created a gigantic 900 foot wide fireball 500,000 degrees hot. In that moment, I saw that bluish white flash in the windows. Setsuko Thurlow was a 13 year old in Hiroshima. That fateful day. Three years ago, she told NPR how she crawled out of a collapsed building to find dark objects approaching her. It was human beings fried by the blast there are covered with blood and burned and blood. And swollen. A flesh hanging from their bones, part of their bodies from missing and someone carrying their own eyeballs India and and that's a collapse. This stomach burst open Thurlow's campaign for decades against nuclear weapons. Earlier this week, she sent President Trump a letter. Nuclear weapons, she wrote, are not a necessary evil. They are the ultimate evil. Russell gawking. Bach witnessed the Hiroshima bombing from a very different perspective. Before his death in November, he'd been the last surviving member of the US crew on that mission passed four years ago What his thoughts were, as he rode on a warplane named necessary evil. Achenbach told voices of the Manhattan project. We had to go out and kill every one of them. We were at war. They started it. They are turned to finish it. Every day, he said. Lots of lives. Both in our military and their four years ago, Barack Obama became the first American head of state to visit Hiroshima's peace memorial. He offered condolences but pointedly did not apologize. Mere words. Do not give voice to such suffering. But we have a shared responsibility look directly into the eye of history. And ask what we must do differently. Curbside suffering again. Standing in the very same spot in November, Pope Francis suggested a great crime had occurred in Hiroshima, Dominika. They're using atomic energy to wage war, the pope said, is today. Now more than ever, a crime. There is no question that a dropping over large Nuclear weapon amongst the civilian population is a war crime.

"Based on what you just said. I wonder if you think the cavenaugh will be affected by the anger, he must feel about his right or wrong the anger he must feel about his confirmation and the anger that he displayed. Quite sharply at the confirmation hearing, this whole two week effort has been calculated an orchestrated political hit. Fueled with apparent pent up anger about president trump and the two thousand, sixteen election. Fear that it's been unfairly stoked about my judicial record. Revenge on behalf of the Clintons. And millions of dollars in money from outside left wing opposition groups, or is he going to let that go and try overtime to be something like John Roberts? I think. It's similar to Thomas but different in some respects. Thomas was just enraged and determined to screw his adversaries I mean I I don't think it's any more simple than that. I? Think Thomas. Just hates Liberals and Democrats with an abiding passion and every single day on the Supreme Court he is determined to screw them in every possible way and that really hasn't changed. A little different I think cavanaugh is very angry about how mistreated I think he's upset that he cannot appear in public because he was someone who liked appearing public like going universities like doing courts He does not like the fact that he's essentially a prisoner of the Supreme Court. They'll be protests wherever he goes, but he's also someone who is really kind of a Washington insider and wants to be liked and wants to be seen as something been other than a political hack in a way that Thomas doesn't care about that at all. So I think that the those might. pull him in slightly different directions by his vote. Still Cabinets vote is still very predictable one in in the vast majority of cases. I believe you wrote about the relationship between Obama and Roberts I. Think he described them as near perfect antagonists. How'd you describe trump, Roberts? The thing about Roberts and Obama is that had so much in common I? Mean It's not just that they both went to Harvard law school but they were both part of the Harvard Law Review. You know serve scholarly approach to law people who sloth they both read the constitution they both written and an for example books. Right for example, I, you know that that's that's the thing that they both had in common and so I, think politically, they were very different I mean, you know John Roberts is a serious serious conservative but I think saw an Obama. A. A serious I who just came out. very differently on most political and legal issues. John Roberts is John Roberts the title he has is not Chief Justice Supreme Court it's chief justice in the United States and Roberts takes that seriously in Robert Season as the representative of the Judicial Branch and when he hears trump saying you know judges the judges stupid or it's an Obama judge I it's it's a Bush judge. Garrity and the simple mindedness and the craven nece with which. Trump talks about the judiciary really does Rob Roberts the wrong way. Now, how many votes that actually shifts I I would have said not many but this this year, maybe it has had some effect but temperamentally and intellectually. Robertson and trump could not be farther are. There's a vacancy on the Supreme Court even as late as September October. November? Give there's a lame duck session. discomfit and were able to fill it well. You know I also spent time thinking and asking about that question in the answer I get from people who are knowledgeable about such things is there is at least a theoretical possibility that Mitch McConnell could do this six to eight weeks. It would take essentially burning down the Senate I mean imagine my question. Yeah. In the scenario in which there's a vacancy than the election happens and Biden wins and the Senate is going to flip in January so you have an incoming democratic majority. In that circumstance. McConnell is going to try is not I I don't see a scenario where McConnell doesn't try. I mean McConnell reasons that are somewhat mysterious is obsessed with the federal judiciary and the Supreme Court particular and has made it his mission to remake it. With Donald Trump and so the opportunity particularly if it's Ruth Ginsburg liberals who's obviously not well and is a possibility to leave the court. Is something that I think he's willing to take all kinds of political hell to do. You know he doesn't have a lot of room for error there only fifty three Republicans in the Senate and given what the Senate did to Obama End to America. Arlen, in keeping in mind that died on February thirteenth two thousand sixteen and they didn't allow Obama to fill that seat for eleven months to jam through a nominee at this point, would be hypocrisy of such a gigantic level that I think there are. At least some senators who will have second thoughts. McConnell has had near total control of his conference throughout his tenure. I think he would probably be able to get through, but it's not it's not a done deal. There will be people there who at least have some misgivings but you know like Susan Collins is is always having misgivings and concerns and and you know second thoughts but always winds up voting with McConnell anyway. I suspect. That would be the approach also. So I'm going to resist the temptation to go hours, which is sometimes what I wanna do with someone like you and while we're all confined it home but I will let you go all right pal. Thank you Jeff Toobin for spending some time with US congratulations on the book true crimes and misdemeanors the investigation of Donald Trump I. Wish you great success that's free. Pick everybody.

The Trump administration says foreign students must leave US if classes go online
"Donald Trump I ran for president. He's had a lot of racist and homophobic things about immigrants, and how he was going to build a wall to many of them out, he also said this. I want people to come into our country legally I WANNA have a big fat beautiful open door. A BIG FAT Beautiful Open Door for legal immigrants. That's how Donald Trump tried to convince the American, And the voters that it wasn't really about hating immigrants, it was just about the rule of law getting the so-called bad hombres out. If you recall Donald Trump has done many things, both during that election, and in the four years, since that made it really clear that he really is prejudice against immigrants of all stripes, or maybe of most stripes, and doesn't seem to care much about the rule of law, either but some level of welcome for immigrants, some level of acknowledgement that immigration is actually important to America's economy, if not its. Its values and traditions was mainstream republican consensus at the time as recently as last year, administration officials were still telling reporters. Trump actually wanted to increase the number of visas for highly skilled workers, but here's the thing Donald. Trump has repeatedly and emphatically slammed his big fat beautiful door in the faces of those same immigrants that his party once tried to make exceptions for the latest example is the trump administration's announcement of a new policy for international students who study at an American College and who studies have moved online during the pandemic. Pandemic, the trump administration essentially told those students to go back to where they came from revoking their right to stay in the United States. The decision doesn't just end the lives of those international students. It's another discouragement of them to study and potentially build their lives in America. We're shutting the door on some of the world's best and brightest minds, giving up on their contributions to American business to research, innovation and society, now and down the Road Harvard Law School Professor Vivek Wadhwa writes that the effective pushing these students away will quote. Quote likely be an exodus of academic talent to schools in Europe or elsewhere and intellectual catastrophe of historic proportions with long-term economic ramifications. There is so much at stake in this move by the president for the students for the universities, and for all of us that today the attorneys General of Sixteen. States and DC joined the age of Massachusetts ensuing the administration to try and stop the policy. They're asking Federal Court in Boston to block. The policy is the case moves forward no word yet, but as Rachel says watch this

Katie Adamson on how the YMCA is like an Iceburg
"My Name Is Katie. Adamson and I am Vice President of Health Partnerships in policy at the YMCA The USA. I have been at the Y. For fifteen years that I've been in the space for thirty so old I am about prevention and at the Y. We're about community health and so a bit different from the conference. I think I'm a bit of an outlier in terms of that. But that's kind of exciting. So I started my career out working for elected officials and so the first one was Pat Schroeder from Colorado and she stealth helped start the congressional women's caucus and children's caucus and she was one of the first graduates of Harvard law school too. She was a super big innovator in women's rights and I also got to work for a member of parliament and Ireland row when I was yeah when I was there. He brought the whole government down for itchy rights again so it was kind of neat to see the parliament go down because he felt like everyone should get access to HIV care and treatment. Ap Don't mind my asking. When is this like right out of college? He was right out of college. Okay now. They're probably more progressive in the United States. Went back then. They weren't that guy that I worked for a very desmond. He introduced contraception into Ireland around the pope. While that kind of tells you he was a real meek guy I was lucky to work for him and then came back and went back to pat. Schroeder's Office. I had been an intern for her. And I said I still want to work on the hill. Can you help me find a job in so Bernie? Sanders had just been elected so when I worked for him. Nobody who was now. Everybody knows who he is. And Bernie's known a lot more. His super super liberal left issues but he was a huge and continues to be a huge advocate for prevention and that the system is skewed and needs to be right-sized towards bigger investment in prevention. So that really influenced me a lot and for him. I worked on those issues primarily and we introduced legislation to establish national cancer registry in this country so that we you know we have more baseball statistics about guys in the world series than we do about women who got breast cancer and so the idea was if you could really kind of capture when people were diagnosed how they were diagnosed that public health could intervene catch it earlier do better screening referral. Things like that so we were able to pass. That legislation helped him get reelected helped him work with Republicans which he had to do in order to get reelected so I was doing a lot of work at the time for him to increase funding for prevention and so the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. You know we're the only federal agency outside of Washington and we don't have anyone to help us. Educate the hill about what we do. Would you come work for us so took us about me about a year to get that job? But then I gotta go down to the Centers for Disease Control and help them come up and educate members of Congress about what the problems were and how big of an issue diabetes and cancer arthritis and all these issues were for the nation and how we needed to be doing more and building more programs in communities and that was an incredible experience for me. I came back and I work for some law firms as I was A nonprofit lobbyists basically so it was a law firm for profit. But I I worked for twenty nonprofits and I had to get all of them federal money. Wow so it's very hard. That's a huge responsibility was back in the earmark days and those are really good earmarks. I worked for Christopher and Dana. Reeve when they were alive. Superman and Dino's goal was that no one would ever have to make more than one phone call after a family member had become paralyzed because she was in a privileged position. She had all the access to anything. You could need in in terms of getting help for Chris. It took her like twenty six phone calls to get just a few things answered and so we built this entire center to help people living with paralysis. Get ACCESS TO CARE and information. Our Son had an issue so I've actually reached out to the Christopher Dana Reeve's foundation in having left the hospital after six months day with something that turned their lives upside down there just tremendous. Aren't they incredible? They really are and ours was not an interest spinal cord injury issue. It was non interested central nervous system but the people over there are just a pleasure to work with. I'm so glad to hear that because I was a long time ago so I'm so glad there's still doing three. Oh yes I was lucky enough to also work for Queen Noor of Jordan. Tell us more cues one of our clients and she and her husband when he was alive did so much to get rid of landmines in Jordan. And she helped takeover after. Diana died so she took over and ran the landmines survivor network and they'd won the Nobel Peace Prize with a group of others. Trying to get land mines out of the ground but they also started a landmine survivor. Peer Support Network around the world and so when they start this peer support network around the world. They helped landmines fibers. Get jobs and be able to survive as a lot of people few lose a lamb in another country. You're completely ostracized because you're not value to your family anymore. So long story short one of my clients was Ymca. When I was working at the law firm for just six months and I was about ready to get married and have a family and I needed to slow down because it was a really busy work so I came to the YMCA. And I've been there for fifteen years and so when I came to the YMCA. It was a really good time because the why was looking at trying to take the network of twenty seven hundred wise in the country and ten thousand communities we reach and drive the ship in the direction of prevention and control of chronic disease. And we've done this a few times in our history before during World War One and World War Two. We won the Nobel Peace Prize for our work during wartime a lot of people. Don't know that you know that.

An Interview with 'Clinton Cash' Author Peter Schweizer
"Show and Peter how are you I'm great bill great to be with you now let's talk about the the book and I would note that down whenever I Google you and it comes up saying the controversial author of the massive cellar Clinton cash your controversial step back from this I look at that I look at Republicans bush forty one knew bush forty three left office know monetization one on Reagan left office he went to his ranch and now trump is actually cost them money in office what is it and the progressive mindset and this is in the mindset of libertarians are conservatives or moderates the progressive mindset says we got to monetize we got to make serious money what is there in the mindset that causes out to transpire well I think in the progressive mindset if you serve in government you're you're engaged and angelic behavior I mean you're you're you're not being selfish and greedy like people in the private sector and with that comes a sense of entitlement so in a sense that that that that you're deserving of data center you see this I mean you know we we broke the story on Joe Biden hunter Biden you know the million dollar your sweetheart deal hunter got from Ukrainians literally three weeks after Joe Biden his father as vice president is appointed point person on Ukraine policy Joe Biden says oh it looks bad but there's nothing wrong with it why because in Joe Biden's mind he is serve the public I'll put that in quotation marks since nineteen seventy two and his family deserves it so the idea is I'm I'm getting things for you it's time for me to monetize my fame and fortune thanks to that character the amazing thing to me is there sits in the oval office Barack Hussein Obama he sends Joe Biden to be in charge of Ukraine quickly his son starts making three million dollars over three years about eighty thousand a month and and and Joe Biden's mine and bomb is mine it wasn't appropriate for Joe Biden is ceda hunter hunter who's got it a sordid past you can't do that when I'm over here to get rid of corruption in Ukraine one hundred did was participate in it why didn't Obama stop yeah you didn't stop it because either he didn't care or you didn't have a full picture and I think it's just that he didn't care and what they keep saying that you people don't understand about the binds it's it's not just hunter and it's not just you crane hunter ran a veritable United Nations of corruption he did deals in China he deals in Kazakhstan deals an area he had no expertise no background any took in the money and we know that because we have the bank records related to a a corruption case involving hunter by his business partner but even more than that bill you have what I call the Biden fives and I talk about this in the book the Biden chapter seventy pages long five members of the Biden family only one of those being hunter cashed in while he was vice president you got his brother James whose father Frank his sister Valerie and his daughter Ashley's husband they all cashed in on sweetheart deals while Joe was vice president if systematic corruption when you're talking about the blinds about two weeks ago headline FBI recently rates business connected to James Biden Joe Biden's brother F. B. I. sounds like more trouble the company in question americorps holdings acquires and manages real hospitals declared bankruptcy in December now the F. B. I.'s raiding the home of the CEO of the company grand white and also others that that doesn't seem to be any interest by the FBI or by others to go after the Clintons the binds the Obamas what is their structurally in the mind of the F. B. I. I'm not talking the ninety nine percent I mean the one percent at the main base and justice the art of Robert F. Kennedy building what is there in their mind that we look for reasons to exonerate the Democrats but we look for reasons to implicate the Republicans what is what I think a lot of a bill has to do with what I call the permanent political class I mean Joe Biden is is you know he's older now but he's basically been a permanent fixture in Washington for forty years a guy like Donald Trump is going to calm I don't don trump's gonna stay in Washington DC when he leaves the White House he's gonna leave so there's a club atmosphere is by bipartisan it's the permanent political class and the reason that you don't have some Republicans warning to investigate Joe Biden is either their family is involved in some level of similar activity order hoping to at some point so this kind of the unwritten rule that we don't go after a prominent political figures and that's the reason we need to be shouting this from the rooftops we need to exposing it because here's the thing voters care about this stuff it's the reason I'm convinced that trump won in twenty sixteen and even though I think Bernie's ideas are are completely wrong for the country what's fueling his candidacy is the same anger at the corrupt establishment in Washington DC if if something universal on both sides of the aisle let's talk about your work on Bernie Sanders until your research about the hundreds of tens of millions of dollars to a mysterious company linked to his wife many thought he was a socialist who wants a revolution let's face it is a communist he wants the by violent means overthrow the United States government which is the definition of a revolution he wants fundamental change he wants the U. S. government to seize the assets of hospitals oil companies pharmaceuticals and so one would think that a guy like that is not really concerned about money he's a Ben and Jerry kind of a guy but in reality what did you find about how Bernie Sanders monetize socialism for his benefit but not ours you mentioned you know that that that sort of this is is a you know communist leanings I mean it's like the old Brezhnev stays in the Soviet Union you had them talking about world while pollution in the proletariat but they all had five deals in corrupt deals live like kings and Bernice case you know he's worth millions of dollars some of that came from writing books he's actually written more books and he's actually introduced pieces of legislation that if passed but a lot of people don't realize it more than half a million dollars of his own campaign funds have gone to buying his own book but the bigger the bigger issue bill is this this this dirty little secret about washing call media buying and and Bernie Sanders's latched on to this yeah if you were running for the Senate in the state of Ohio and you said Peter I want you to do my media buys by my TV and radio I get a commission of C. off of that it could be anywhere from ten to fifteen percent goes to the media buyer in the beauty of it is that doesn't show up anywhere in Federal Election Commission records you don't know who the media buyers well here's what Bernie did she saw this and what did he do when he started running for Congress left of the Senate he put his wife in charge of the media by which means she's got the commission even though she had no background in advertising and media buying any of this stuff so we know that she and Bernie we received hundreds of thousands of dollars by doing that and the great mystery comes to the twenty sixteen election will Bernice dropped eighty three million dollars on media buys so that means the commission somewhere between eight million and twelve million dollars where did it go well it went through a company called old town media old town media did not have a website did not have other clients it was registered to a home in the coldest sack in suburban Virginia all in the two owners of old town media were long time friends of James Sanders yeah he was after she heard Jane was asked about this by a progressive reporter in twenty sixteen what do you know about old town media do you have any connection to old town media and are you involved in this in any way and according to the professor reporter Jane Sanders just hung up the phone room of what happened to the twelve million dollars who got the media commission on that we just don't know what it's million ends is a little bit of money he monetizes the campaign so those are contribute to thirty six dollars each to the to the Sanders campaign have got to understand that goes into a pot and out of the pot comes all the media buys and that's how the Sanders family gets paid yeah and then the other thing that I think people need to know is that you know Bernie Sanders has been very clear cut in people calling the left kind of you Mister John the Baptist progressive movement why he's out of eating locusts and honey well you know he's worth millions of dollars he actually has an investment portfolio and when you look at his investment portfolio I hate to break this to you bill I know this is going to shock you he's not invested in like renewable energy companies he's not invested in you know some organic farm I mean he's invested in fortune five hundred stock that's where his investment portfolio is it's not a socially responsible investment fund that's where his investments are in when you set up you know we bought his third home the vacation home they set it up in the trust precisely to avoid paying some taxes so you know Bernie Sanders is not John the Baptist use is is more like a qualified king Herod at least in the way that is that he handles his investments in his own money let's move on to Lizabeth Warren she is picturing yourself as a every woman she knows exactly how you live your life she spent time a course in Oklahoma and then and she monetized her so called Indian heritage and I probably have more Indian blood to me than she does she use all along but you have great reporting on how she a really bad millions of dollars from corporations even though she rants and raves against corporate America how to Elizabeth Warren maker money our records network is around twelve million dollars they pay well at Harvard Law School they don't pay that well so the question becomes how did you make that money and so we re traced this we went through and found that in the mid nineteen nineties Elizabeth one was hired by the U. S. Congress and paid by us the taxpayers to help Congress to rewrite some of the bankruptcy laws okay she's a lawyer that makes sense they hire her they tend to do this whole ideas are incorporated into the bankruptcy code then what does she do bill she goes to large corporations Dow chemical and others and says you hire me as a consultant and I will help you navigate around the law I actually wrote genius is very corrupt moves and other people in Washington is done have done this she's denounced other people that have done this but she ended up working for Dow chemical Armstrong world wide a whole host of large corporations who are facing class action lawsuit towards and she was helping them minimize their exposure that's obvious a legitimate thing to do but the fact that she says I've been fighting for the little guy my entire life is simply not true she made millions of dollars helping the big guy large corporations slip out of responsibilities as it related to people who were damaged by the products those companies have produced you don't fall a few nights ago I'm watching Chris Matthews every now and then is a lucid moment and he was ranting and raving about socialism the evil socialism is because all over the world any referenced Ohio senator Sherrod brown that Sherrod brown is the kind of person that we need there because he looks after the little guys a union guy so Sherrod brown is being promoted by the mainstream media as kind of Bernie Sanders light and you've investigated were weren't shared brown gets his money from where is it that's very interesting shirt brown he always been in public life since you graduate from college he ran for the state legislature he listed himself he was still a senior at Yale when he ran for office he listed himself bill as a farmer under our occupation I don't know what kind of form he
Trump Impeachment Trial Winds Down With Closing Arguments
"But we begin with the latest on the Senate impeachment trial and tomorrow's Iowa caucuses the first contest in the race for the democratic nomination the Senate narrowly rejected democratic demands for witnesses but pushed off a final vote to acquit president from till Wednesday the day after he addresses Congress on the state of the union let's bring in Kevin Cork reporting from the president's retreat of Mar a Lago but the latest Calvin Chris just three more days before the White House can finally peers the cloud cover of what they've considered the brazen partisan process the single party impeachment of the president of the United States laughter Monday's closing arguments senators final remarks and then finally Wednesday at four PM the vote on the two articles of impeachment and barring a political earthquake the president's expected acquittal one by the thinnest of definition say defined Democrats still reeling from the Senate's fifty one forty nine vote rejecting demands for additional witnesses if the president is equated with no witnesses no documents acquittal will have no value wedged in between Monday's resumption of activity on the Senate floor and Wednesdays historic vote is the president's state of the union address Tuesday evening theme the great American come back the president is expected to focus on what the White House calls the blue collar economic boom lowering overall healthcare costs and safe legal immigration in a speech sources tell fox news will be both positive and optimistic I tone in sharp contrast perhaps to its we sit overnight by the president shortly after midnight in which she accused Democrats of using the impeachment process as a blazingly political process to damage the GOP and lose their chances Chris in twenty twenty Chris Kaman Cork reporting from Mar a Lago Kevin thank you they are I spoke about the Senate trial with a member of the president's defense team Alan Dershowitz professor emeritus at Harvard Law School and author of the new book guilt by accusations this is George with let's start with the Senate's decision by a vote of fifty one to forty nine not to call witnesses the Republicans have the votes so they won but is there a legal justification a legal reason for not calling evidence when there is substantial new evidence yes as I argued to the Senate if somebody were accused of the crime of abuse of power or dishonesty something it's not a crime what you do is you make a motion to dismiss on the other side has no we want to introduce evidence no no no no you can't is use evidence if there is no legitimate indictment here the articles of impeachment did not charging impeachable offense so the right answer is to dismiss it and cut it off right there no amount of witnesses could have changed that okay but the top Democrats in Congress Nancy Pelosi the house Chuck Schumer in the Senate say that the failure to call witnesses is going to put a taint on any of the weather listen to sure this country is headed towards the greatest cover up since Watergate but he will not be quite as you cannot be acquitted if you don't have a trial of course you can be acquitted if you don't have a trial if they don't charge you with illegitimate crime it's the fault of Nancy Pelosi and the others for failing to charge an impeachable offense they're going to say they say he's never going to be truly acquitted because you didn't have witnesses who didn't have new evidence he dismissed it before you even really got to hear what the facts were in a criminal context it would be cool victory a great victory here if they have been charging the fans then maybe he hasn't been acquitted but he also hasn't been charged he's in exactly the same situation you should have been in had they done the right thing and not impeach him at all you've created quite a controversy with something you said in the Senate trial here is which is sad and here's some of the blood does which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest cannot be the kind of that results in impeachment if you can identify something as president that's in your public your political interest and say that's the national interest they're all bets are off is what I don't understand right you have made it clear new and I went out at last week on the question of you say that to be an impeachable offense it's gotta be a crime criminals like behavior of kin to treason and bribery that's what the constitution means when it says treason bribery or other high crimes and get into this question of whether or not the president thanks his re election is in the public interest because you seem to be implying that somehow that gives them an extra level of immunity no no it doesn't I was asked the question by a senator the question was does quid pro quo matter and my answer is it matters is what the president it is illegal or wrong but if the president is something completely waffle the fact that part of his motivation may have been to help his election cannot be the quid pro quo that's what I said I never said I mean and I don't believe that a president can do anything if he thinks it is national interest look I supported the impeachment of Richard Nixon he thought that the five crimes he committed our own national interest these folks have totally distorted quite deliberately because they saw that I was having an impact on some of the senators so they deliberately distorted what I said and said even if it's criminal what the president thinks is in the best interest it can't be an impeachable offense nonsense I never said it was three journals as I never said it New York times says I never said it and the fact that Schumer and shifts and CNN say I said it doesn't make it true again I don't even know why intense is an issue and why you got into it as I was but but my point is the activity has what you say is the case if it's criminal or criminal like activity that it can be impeachable if it's not criminal activity it doesn't matter what the motive the example I gave I said there are three levels of motor the sample I gave the president says I'm not giving you money you crane unless you give me a million dollar kick back of course that's criminal and of course he goes to jail Abraham Lincoln said the troops owned Indiana vote for Republicans in the election was that impeachable no matter what it was well it doesn't matter to me but it managed to shift and medicine to the people on the other side they were focusing on motive I was responding to them I didn't put that in my original speech because you're right but I was on the floor to respond to constitutional arguments question and it was wrenched out of context you seem pretty upset about I was very upset about that because it is has has hurt me people think I actually believe the president like Nixon can do anything he wants is exactly the opposite of what I've been teaching arguing in as a civil libertarian believing in the fifty years how dare they deliberately and willfully distort my position and then not give me an opportunity to respond all rights forget impeachment from asking you this and maybe a little agree to do it or not but a thought experiment Alan Dershowitz citizen do you find it troubling problem out at that residence with Lincoln anyway forget is not about I'm not saying it's criminal his support

Suite report and related media which is all focused done business outside of healthcare a graduate of Harvard law school and also Author of four books in a CPA. I don't know how he does it all but he does it. He's one of the best thought leaders in healthcare in my opinion and Excited to join him in a conversation once again. So take a listen to this. Awesome interview. you're gonNA enjoy the thoughts that that he has to share and the fun that we have during our conversation and with that introduction. I WanNa give you who a warm welcome Scott. Thanks so much for joining me again. Well thank you so much for having me always a pleasure to visit with you. Thank you sir. So Scott. You're doing on. I really cool things and and before we get into the meat and bones of today's interview is I do WanNa Park at the work you've been doing with your podcast uncast. Can you share a little bit more about it and why you guys started. There was sure so the core that we do. At bekker's healthcare has two parts of it. Our digital media efforts in our big conferences and events around three or four core core sectors and healthcare hospital systems health. It surgeries others is by so to get your of course podcasts. The podcasts are sort of a fascinating to me. It on. They're more sort of a as you know a magnificent way to just visit with interesting people people in a format you might not otherwise get to visit with them in and so yes people listen to them but the great pleasure for me is getting talk up to a whole range of leaders and people in all aspects of life. I mean yesterday at a podcast with a woman physician who's Muslim background. Speaking about being a Muslim docker America two weeks ago I spoke with Jean Woods. The CEO of Atrium health also former chair of the HA and one of the great growing systems. Those are the country. Here's get a chance to visit with magnificent group at different people and twelve chance to visit with interesting people. I tend to enjoy people. So that's that's what I love most about the podcasting and then people listening to them. It's more of a kind activity tool and a way to visit with people and if people visit in the conversations or anything else I think it's great and you're so right about that right. I mean the the ability to connect with others. That are doing great things a while. Back AGO folks ahead Scott on the podcast. He was At the very beginning actually and for those that have been listening for quite some time. You know that Scott was is one of the key people that inspired me to do my podcast so awesome to see him doing his his podcast. Now it is a great way to visit with others. And if you haven't but listen to that first episode with Scott It's episode number five. You GotTa Outcomes Rocket Dot Health type and Scott Becker. You'll you'll see where we focused on being patient centric and building outstanding teams which is something that Scott does so well and and and Scott. What's inspiring your work today? I I would say really two things inspire what I see. One is with all the talk about healthcare which you are seeing is tremendous advances in some cure for certain diseases. So oncology sort of almost didn't make that much progress for a long time in certain kinds of oncology and now making crazy progress so that inspires me just watching those things inspires me. I don't have anything to do with it. But they inspire me and then the other thing that spires ars me just you know working with magnificent people in visiting with people and hearing their stories and seeing what they're doing it so those are the two things that sort of excite me the great advances out there all all the negative talk in to just talking to people Scott and I've been to to your meetings and there are a lot of. I always connect with so many great people people to your point. You know the speakers and the keynotes are always super entertaining. What would you say makes what Bekker's offers different than what's out there? We're trying to is be queer concise fast moving and try and be very clear about our goal to teach people and entertain and the core of what we do is building everything we do around the core audience the core participants in the sector. So if you're looking at are hostile meetings it's really built around the jets built around three hundred great hostile leaders. It's not built around us. It's built around the core audience. The cord leadership in our we were in four different areas health. It also some surgery centers in spine but dissimilar a similar rasping everything. We're really built around the audience. Not around us and we try and teach entertain in clear concise simple content. And we've got a great team that implemented we've got great editorial team a Great Jenner team great leadership and Business Valentin which you can't do anything without those so it's it's a mix of things that we try and do to make work well and and it's a constantly changing environment but we've got a great team and we try and save very close to the audience really counts. That really. Is the driver behind everything we do. Love it serving bring. Your audience is super important. And it's hard to do in easy to be distracted. Can you share what you do to stay hyper focused on your audience against well. It is a is a great question. We have very very clear goals and directives on how we try and build everything that we do. And how now it's built to be audience centric versus vendor centric. And they're two very different things and we focus. I making sure our team and our audience dance is well taken care of we those things then things seem to work out well and it just a constant clarity of focus on what really counts. And we've got you know we've a few constituents. We have to take care of the audience. First and foremost doing short commercial interest. It makes sense for them and obviously our speakers speakers in our team are the other parts of that sort of stool love it. How about on the law side of things? You're still a practicing partner at at McGuire. Woods anything that you WANNA share to the listeners. That that are thinking about their their Legal Affairs and the things that they do there air. Anyone WANNA share. Yeah no it's. It's a great question so I've struggled to forever in one of them really out of the other. All my work has been in healthcare for thirty years. Now it's started as a law career and then built this media business almost by accident but grew into serious company money due to great leadership of our team. There are editorial team are Jonah deem our our business team just call and everybody else the On the law side ride the biggest congressman I've had is pretty similar built in its practice but to do that and build a practice in healthcare and then insert your center selfless equity. I was able to early on start to build great teams and everything that one dozen life. Today it requires great teams so the thing most of proud of him most excited about at the law firm is a team I built in the number of people there that have become partner in the firm that were under my mentorship. It's our ship is a whole cadre of people that really were part of my team originally and now grown to be leaders in the firm partners in the firm and one of which is now the cheer of our national healthcare practice but just a great group of people from you know give shots to all them you know people like Melissa. Holly Barks Howen Gretchen amber in more and more and And and others that really came up under in with me and Jeff cockrel perspective. Some practice that came along with me now of largely built greater backs may but was just a magnificent experience.

Turkish and Kurdish Forces Said to Clash in Syria
"President trump lifted sanctions on Turkey this week saying Turkey had assured him it would halt fighting against the Kurds in Syria but there are reports today of clashes between Turkish and Kurdish forces there the fighting started after president trump abruptly pulled American forces out of the border area earlier this months saying it was time to bring US troops home joining us in the studio to talk about this and other stories in the news is former Democratic Congresswoman Jane Harman she's in Town for a Harvard law school over union she is president and CEO of the Wilson Center. Great to see you in person welcome thank you Jeremy I wasn't sure you existed I'm a real person I'm not just a disembodied voice let me ask you about Syria Defense Secretary Mark Esper- said today that the US is going to keep a reduced military presence on the ground in Syria to stop Isis from taking over oil fields there there are reports the White House is considering keeping five hundred troops in northeast Syria which would be a reversal does the US have a strategy there oh we seem to have a process free foreign and security policy which is very dangerous we do have parts of government including AH the National Security Council in the White House led by a guy just met this week Robert O'Brien who seems quite capable and we do have a state armament and we do have a Defense Department and and all of the principals and deputy should have been considering carefully what the day after and the day after that would look like he we took some of our troops out of Syria. I don't believe that happened I think most people were blindsided by the decision and now we're paying the price I mean what's happening here is that plan that was under way to create a security zone between Turkey and Syria which would take care of Turkey's worries about the Kurds in eating Turkey was just about to be put in place and instead of that we took the US troops out of that part of Syria and destabilized all of Syria the long term consequences for the United States. Well we'll find out but what are your concern my concern is that we have destroyed our credibility we also have created axiom filled already by to some extent the Turks plus the Russians and the the Assad government which has used chemical weapons on its people has free rein and oh by the way there's a rumor that chemical weapons have been used during this exercise to to remove the Kurds it's not clear by whom I underpinned by Turkey or Turkish ally now who could that be sounds like assigned to me but I it's being investigated by the UN so I don't know if that's that is just heinous and consequence we might have anticipated if we'd had a reasonable process in place what about Isis how concerned are you that this will now regroup and be a threat to the US or Europe or the West in general very concerned I mean there were prisons in that swath of land that Turkey has been attacking they were prisons there of Isis fighters these prisons were horrendous it is not clear yet got who has escaped but these isis fighters in that area probably came from Europe and if they did what will they want to do if they're free they're going to want to go the the poorest Turkish border back into Europe and stage attacks in Europe and you know possibly through Europe to the US so I think this is set potentially set us back quite a lot do you think that Turkey should be booted out of NATO as a result of what just happened that's a decision for NATO to make I mean Erkki also did another no no recently which is to buy a massive air defense system called the S. four hundred from Russia NATO exists it has a collective defense organization to keep the West free it doesn't exist as an attack you know outfit against Russia but Russia is Given its actions in Ukraine and Crimea a threat to NATO and so now if you have a NATO member purchasing it's major defense system from Russia that's let's say awkward

Hearing with Trump loyalist Corey Lewandowski ends after 6 hours
"If you read the early reviews of today's hearing in the House Judiciary Committee by which I mean the reviews written about four are four and a half hours into the five and a half hour hearing then you would think the hearing was a mess the daily beast headline at five fifty five pm. I'm said Corey Lewandowski testimony quickly devolves into a mess but a minute later literally a minute after that was filed everything having changed it was a half hour left in that hearing when everything changed in Corey Lewandowski change coralline Dusky ran out of ways to avoid answering questions when he faced a full half hour of concentrated cross examination by lawyer hired by the committee to question witnesses in its impede from investigation the Republicans on the committee were determined to make a mockery of the committee process from the start we have never seen a more childish and abusive the use of committee process and committee rules than what the Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee did today. This was the low point in the history of house hearings procedurally the Republicans made repeated motions to shut down the hearing to just adjourn the hearing close it down and when those motions were defeated instantly by voice vote the Republicans then called for as is their right roll call votes that they knew would take time. They knew they were going to lose and they were just trying to waste time and add to the circus atmosphere that they created corey. Lou Dusky was ready for a circus. He was was not ready for serious questioning. When Republicans took their five minute turns questioning the witness they ignored corey. Lewandowski is role in the president's attempt to shut shutdown the muller investigation as described by Corn Corey Lewandowski own testimony in the mullahs report and his own notes that are reproduced in the mall the report Republican questioning deliberately did not make any sense but the question on the democratic side also mostly didn't make sense because of Republican publican interference with that questioning and the simple fact that should be obvious by now that most members of Congress are not very good at this they did not run for the district attorney they ran for the House of Representatives and every once in a while they have to play district attorney in committee hearings and generally for most of them. It doesn't go oh very well except for the people who have actually been prosecutors and so for hours on end it was a chaotic hearing with Corey Lewandowski becoming increasingly singley emboldened in his refusal to answer any question for which the answer was not already contained in the report he was asked by several Democrats to read passages the report and he repeatedly refused to do so cars when Eric Swallow Zeroed in on page ninety one of the Mullahs report which reproduced Corey Lewandowski own connotes of a speech Donald Trump dictated to him for Attorney General Jeff sessions to deliver about the Mueller Investigation Wild Wild Jeff sessions recused from supervising or commenting on the Muller Investigation in the trump written speech jeff sessions would announce that the special special prosecutor's investigation of the president is unfair and the special prosecutor would only be allowed from this point forward to investigate the possibility of quote election meddling for future elections so that nothing can happen in future elections harassment ex well well ask Corey Lewandowski to read his notes outs of his conversation with the president as reproduced in the mall report and Lewin Dusky refused to read his words allow were you were ashamed to read them out loud and you didn't deliver those words to the person the president asks you to did. You have a conscious of guilt. I have nothing to be guilty of congressman. Thank you still feel guilty today. And that's why you can't read it out loud cars when you're welcome to read the words if you'd like when the members of the committee finally finished their questioning almost five hours after hearing began it was finally time for the thirty minutes of questioning reserved for attorney. Barry Burke who is serving as a consultant of the Committee Hybrid Chairman Nadler Adler and chaos broke out once again as the Republicans pretended there was something wrong with having council ask questions in the committee even though the committee has done that many many times before especially in investigations of a president and after another round votes trying and failing to close down the hearing completely finally finally Barry Burke closed in on Corey Lewandowski for what was the worst public half hour of Corey Lewandowski life. My question to you sir is on national television. Did you lie about your relationship with the special counsel and whether they sought your interview I I don't know prior to the Muller report being published in redacted form. Did you ever misrepresent what you did on behalf of the president. I can't think of an instance where that would have occurred. Let me show you an interview that you did on May Fourteenth Twentieth Nineteen. Excuse me a I'll show it to you from February twenty-second twenty one thousand nine. Let me show it to you. Excuse me Ma'am number twenty nine thousand nine. Thank you don't ever remember the president ever asking me to get involved with Jeff sessions or the department injustice in any way shape so did you hear that Sir that was used saying on MSNBC. You don't ever remember the president ever. We're asking you to get involved with. Jeff sessions or department of Justice in any way shape or form. That wasn't true. Was it sir. I heard that UH and that was not true was it. I've no obligation beyond to the media's because there's just as dishonest as anybody else so you're admitting sir. You're not being truthful in that clip correct my interview with remember. This can be in any way you'd like. Did you lie on national television. Sorry about the president giving you a message. It's the attorney general about the special counsel's investigation. I don't recall that particular day and my mindset at the time I couldn't answer that. Corey Lewandowski told Robert Muller's investigators that he didn't want to deliver the president's message to Jeff Sessions at the Justice Department Jeff Sessions Office because he did not want the justice this apartment logs to show that he visited the Attorney General. He didn't WANNA public record of that meeting. Barry Burke pressed Corey Lewandowski on why he didn't want a public record of of him entering the Justice Department. So is it a fact. He didn't want to public log because you knew what you doing wrong so the just as the president went to an unofficial official nongovernment employees you wanted to make sure there was not a record of it isn't that right sir. No log creates a record of your visiting with the Attorney General so I would think a log world creator record degreaser that you admitted to the special counsel. You didn't want to have a record of your visit and that's why that's one of the reasons why you didn't go to the Department of Justice because she did not want to public log of your visit correct. I've never been to the Department of Justice. I don't know what goes on the Department of Justice. I don't really want to find out what happened. Department of Justice based on what's happened to other people involving the Department of Justice to be honest with you. Barry Burke insisted that the reason Corey Lewandowski did not personally deliver the president's message to Jeff. Yes actions is that Corey Lewandowski knew that would not be legal. You said so. You never did anything other than what was completely legal when you said that circus you knew if you delivered that message that told the Attorney General to instruct the special counsel delimit the investigation to exclude the president that would not be illegal. Isn't that correct surf Mr Burke. I didn't have the privilege of going to Harvard Law School. I'm not an attorney so what I know is. I didn't think at the time that the president asked me to deliver a message that anything was illegal about it. I didn't have the privilege to go to Harvard Law. So if you're telling me that in your opinion that would have been illegal then that's your opinion too but I never assume that that never thought about at the time I haven't thought about now. Why didn't you deliver the message that the president ask you delivered unless you didn't deliver it because you knew it was improper to deliver. Mr Burglar wasn't a priority. It sure reads like a priority in the mullahs report throughout the day. Corey Lewandowski refused to answer multiple questions agents about his conversations with anyone working in the White House. Berry Burke showed that this was not exactly a sacred principle to Corey Lewandowski. I can't speak to conversations that may or may not have with senior staff members of the administration to preserve the privilege they've invoked so it's such a sacred privilege as you would not disclose private communications because that would be wrong you testimony sir now. My testimony is at the White House directed that disclosed the substance of any discussions with the president advisors to protect executive branch confidentiality and I recognize that's not my privilege but I am. I am respecting the decision of the White House. Didn't you publish a book in which you disclose these very conversations. You had with senior White House officials which book you reference. I've written to New York Times bestsellers on a year so you refresh my memory with one. I'm asking you about the bestseller lead trumpy trump leading off our discussion. Tonight is democratic. Congressman Eric Swallow of California is one of the able questioners on the House Judiciary Committee because because he is a former deputy district attorney himself also joining us Mimi Roca former assistant. US Attorney Southern District of New York an MSNBC legal legal contributor cars. I WanNa start with something you brought up to Chairman Nadler when when it was your turn already been one brief recess in the hearing and so I'm not sure whether this was I could tell us whether this was coordinated with the chairman. Not specifically said you asked the chairman to consider holding holding Corey Lewandowski in contempt of Congress for the way he was testifying in that hearing which I have to say in any previous in Congress he would have been held in contempt of Congress in the first five minutes based on what we saw what's going to happen with the question of contempt of Congress for Corey Lewandowski in Dusky. It's certainly on the table and I also think the to witness chairs next to him. empty chairs should mean empty pockets and they need to be fine. There need to be consequences and when you when you by the way I could listen to that Barry Burke Exchange all day and then he he he's just masterful and finally the truth came came out but that's not how an innocent person conducts themselves. That's how he wants to help the Congress understand. You know what the president did would present themselves. That's how a guilty person acts and so are the chairman is going to consider contempt and we're not going to stop it in Lawrence and I I saw just like you did the you know the twitter. you know hot takes on what all this meant and people said it was messy. It was frustrating and that's all true but if the opposite of of this is to do nothing and let the President get away with further obstruction. We're not GonNa do that either and we have court battles that are ongoing right now so the president may benefit in the short term from confusing people and telling people to obstruct but in the long-term there's going to be a cascade of court decisions in our favor and it's not going to be very good for the trump team. Carson there is one another alternative for the mess of it and that is letting Barry Burke to either all the questioning or let Barry Burke have the first half our and then let the mess follow that yeah and it also just depends as well on the witnesses. We should assume that most witnesses are going to be like Mister Lebowski. That's just the trump style. They haven't had to have any consequences for that as of late and yes I think you know just just like you want more cowbell. Give us more burke. He was very very good. maybe Roca one of the things that you don't have in the courtroom is the other side when in the middle of your questioning jumping up in all sorts of history on equate object to something in a courtroom you better be doing it based on the rules of evidence the Democrats

Well, we have researched a lot of what entrepreneurs have to face and try to find unique in the setting of the small business or the entrepeneurship that is just starting up. We interviewed a lot of entrepreneurs, I base some of this knowledge on my own experience of twenty five years in the entrepeneurship, but the high tech their face world, and we found that there are four key factors that are. Always heightened in the world of entrepreneurship as negotiation the complexity of the negotiations are usually a high, actually when you get to the high tech or the life, sciences aren't up.

Top U.S. Law Schools Now Teaching AI Courses
"The top law schools around the country, new A I courses schools, like Columbia, Harvard and Stanford have already introduced courses utilizing AI, how artificial intelligence meets the law after these tech headlines. Tesla CEO Elon Musk made his case for an on-demand robot taxi fleet that he says would begin next year in a presentation to investors early this week in Palo Alto, California. Mr. musk said by the middle of next year, more than one million tesla cars on the road will be able to operate without a human driver. He also expects regulatory approval in at least one market that would enable a robot taxi service by the end of twenty twenty the plan is for tesla owners to push a button on a smartphone app to put their cars into commercial service and pick up riders on the company's network a startup that helps freight carriers manage their fleets is the latest tech company valued by investors at more than one billion dollars. San Francisco based keep truck in has raised one hundred forty nine million dollars to build out its digital freight services offering things like electronic logging devices to reduce fuel usage and monitor how much time truckers spend behind the wheel. Keep trucking also says. It is developing artificial intelligence applications to analyze footage and driving events in real time and the journal says credit card pitches are moving from the mailbox to the social media feed. Several big card issuers recently increased spending on Facebook ads and never to attract new borrowers case in point capital. One and American Express spent an estimated eighteen point six million and thirteen point five million in twenty eighteen capital.

Come from Deloitte, a global leader in digital transformation, helping clients apply technologies. Like, cloud, an AI to their unique business challenges Deloitte, God com slash look again. US law schools are adding artificial intelligence courses to their curricula in an effort to get students ready to confront the emerging legal issues around artificial intelligence. The Wall Street Journal's JR Waylon has more as official intelligence permeates. Our devices are workplace in society. It's inevitable that the legal responsibility of AI is going to be a growing concern and US law schools have recognized that and they're adding a are related coursework Wall Street Journal reporter Jared council is here with some details. So Jared, Columbia, Stanford and Harvard law schools are among those who have added courses that touch on topics. Yes. Those law schools as well as the law school at the university of Chicago and women Mary university. Somebody schools have already had technology focus kind of courses, you know, touching on internet privacy and things like that. But we started to. Notice that more of these schools are introducing a I focus courses for for their their students who ultimately will be the lawyers and judges and regulators of the future. What's the sort of training that the coursework aims to give these law students? These courses are designed to give these law students exposure to some of the current and potential issues around artificial intelligence and just get them associated with you know, questions that that that might arise like, you know, what what happens when an algorithm violate someone's civil rights or who should be at fault win an autonomous vehicle is involved in an accident with someone and even beyond those types of questions. Artificial intelligence is increasingly being used by regulators for enforcing a law that US patent and technology office and the social security administration. They're all using AI to address. Some of the the the workload and paperwork that they have. And it's raising questions like we'll how come a computer gets a decide which case is seeing and isn't seeing and so these lawyers again, they're not here to answer these questions or come up with with solutions, but just to start exploring some of the the potential issues that might arise this is part of a brave new world that we're in it's possible as you put it in your story that someday a party in a lawsuit could be represented by machine. Yeah. Speaking with professor at the university of Chicago and Anthony, Casey. And he he he mentioned that it's it's not far fetched that we could have systems that that that one day will automatically create contracts, and you know, potentially represent parties in a lawsuit and even be parties to a lawsuit there. There's already algorithms today that are that are creating music, and who has the copyrights to that music who gets paid. From the world tease. You know, all of these questions are starting to come about. And Yale Law School was one of the pioneers in this area. They offered AI related courses as far back as two thousand fourteen and a Stanford law. Professor you spoke with said, it's important to get future lawyers technologists in the same room because there's a lot for them to discuss there's been this divide. If you will where the the lawyers don't really understand the underlying technology, and how it works, and you know, what is a machine learning algorithm. And on the flip side, the the computer scientists aren't really thinking about some of the legal implications of the way, they design their their system. So the idea Stanford and even some other schools is to get them in the same room. So they can start discussing these issues, and and maybe come up with ideas at the other of their group. Didn't think of couldn't think of

Massachusetts congressman Richard Neal who heads the powerful House Ways, and means committee spoke about it, the China that we trade with and compete with today is very different from the one that we had hoped would emerge. China's economy which has taken on some market characteristics remains fundamentally state directed. More than half of China's biggest companies are owned by the government. They include essential sectors, like railroads energy shipbuilding and telecommunications like government officials also maintained strong ties to. Private companies says Jennifer Hillman of Georgetown, University Law Center, they're able to direct resources and push resources into those industries in those entities that they are trying to favor Hellman notes that communist party members sit on the board of virtually every big Chinese company, the four largest banks are controlled by the government, Mark. Woo of Harvard Law School says even when a Chinese company is privately-owned it works hard to stay in Beijing's. Good graces people understand what the objectives are in Vail operate within those confines. It's especially true when the state exerts strong of control over the key elements of the economy as the Chinese economy still does it wasn't supposed to be this way when China joined the World Trade Organization in two thousand one it agreed to reform it system to become more free market, but Patrick show Vanik of Silvercrest asset management says events of the past decade have made China more confident about its own system in the wake of two thousand. And eight financial crisis. China took a different look at what it's economic model should look like and a model that was more state-driven looked a lot more attractive to them under president Xi Jinping, the government's role in the economy has only gotten bigger US officials say these policies violate the spirit if not the letter of trade law and they've pressed Beijing to stop subsidising businesses. But the ties between the government and business in China can be okay. So Vanik says Chinese officials know how to give preferential treatment of their own companies at the expense of outsiders without leaving their fingerprints anywhere. They will just say, well, there's a slowdown in inspections of this type of product from your country. It's for safety. It makes it hard for the you didn't turn around and say, okay, you're engaging in an elective because there's complete deniability Harvard's, Mark. Woo says the Trump administration needs to be realistic about what it can achieve too. The extent were expecting major fundamental structural reforms. That's going to be very difficult to obtain because they see this governance structure as having been vital for both their political economic successes. Woo says China believes it's economic model has served the country. Well, and it's not going to give it up easily. And that means US trade negotiators have their work cut out for them.

I'm happy to do it going back to that NBC story about Donald Trump declaring an emergency to build the border wall. Let me just read a little excerpt from that because it is a little bit surprising. Actually, the article goes on to say legal experts said that Trump could find sure footing by using Anaba gated money within the defense department's budget because federal law allows the military to fund construction projects during war or emergencies. Pentagon spokesman a sites the title of the US code that gives the military authority to do that.

And I have been in her company many times where people have asked her where she went to law school, and then she has said, I went to Harvard Law School and almost one hundred percent of the time people go, ooh, ooh, more. And I have to watch them just patronize her for about five minutes. And I've thought ever since witnessing this, wow, I would have thought having graduated from Harvard is great thing. It'd be like a fucking racing trophy, but no, it totally backfires, right people are just generally so threatened by this. Is it miserable sane where you went to college? So allow me to indulge in my white privilege. Complain about going. It is. It is a weird going. It's a weird lose-lose thing because if you say you went to Harvard, that's the reaction. And if you say you went to school in Boston, which people do a lot of people that I went to Boston or whatever, and then they would do aware be you and then you're, you're dead and you don't have to Harvard, and then they didn't want us to double Wham.

I'm an asshole. Do we need to talk about college? Yeah. I mean, I was on like seventy five percent of my education was paid for with financial aid. And so I feel less poverty and I feel embarrassed about it because I do feel like I earned. It's it's actually so sad that we as humans are so easily triggered threatened. Yeah, that's something that is look. I could never fucking got into Harvard. It wasn't wasn't within me either through the due diligence or test scores, and it's a huge accomplishment. And it's crazy that we hate it. If someone wins a an Olympic gold medal, no one's like gold. What I think I know exactly what it is. We all have some weird fantasy of had we committed ourselves to learning the the high bar or whatever fucking sharing that we could have. Yeah, there's something about like intellectual feelings of intellectual inferiority that really triggers something much more deep to identity. I would actually say, I think you're right, but I would rephrase it a little bit. I think that the reason we don't do that with the hundred meter dash winner because it's like that guy's not. I'm not that guy. There's no one hundred years, but Harvard is like, well, I went to this college and you went to Harvard or Yale, or Stanford at Princeton or whatever.
