"Brought to california imposing a state-wide curfew from ten pm through five. Am starting this saturday. We're tracking the very latest coronavirus numbers as cases continue to surge here in the us the seven day national average of new infections jumping more than twenty five percent since last week that big spike prompting the cdc to urge all americans to stay at home. This thanksgiving we get some more promising news on the vaccine on data out of an oxford astrazeneca vaccine trial pointing to a robust immune response in adults. That's on top of promising vaccine news. We've gotten recent days visor and moderna. And that's clearly sparking investor interest in the space new from morningstar showing a whopping one point. Seven billion dollars flowing into healthcare. Atf's in the first two weeks of this month following three months of outflows. But our next guest says you may have missed the boat on some of these leading vaccine stocks. Let's bring jared holtz healthcare equity strategist at jefferies. Jared great to have you with us so these companies are saving humanity. And you say you expect softness into this year into the year end as well as next year. Listen thanks to much happy. Yeah i there are too many programs. That data is not all that cut and dry across the board. And i think when we go into next year. We're going to be talking about things. Like logistics the supply chain in pricing all those dynamics host to be problematic as we think about this broader space next year. When you say the data isn't cut and dry air you speaking specifically about the data sets and we've gotten so far from biser as well as moderna. We've only seen interim results from those trials. We still have safety data to go. I'm fairly competent. The safety wind up being pretty good. But we are looking at these data sets kind of as a checking account or a balance sheet. we're looking at them as a snapshot in time Looking at the patient data on efficacy basis about one week to two weeks host the second injection so how these patients you know down the line longer term. I think there will still be some questions about your ability in my mind still too many variables to make a call here that they have to be owned these prices. A lot of americans had listened to that data. Jared and thought these were going to be the silver bullet so to speak. Are you saying that data could come out later on which shows that that. These vaccines aren't ninety. Five percent effective. I think it's totally possible. We're only looking at about one hundred patients in each trial and each of the clinical studies that were referring to down now the moderna study and the study have about thirty thousand or more patients so i expect that number to down. It's still very efficacious. Even eighty eighty five percent. And so i don't think the ours quite ninety percent for some of the other trials that are yet to read out but yes. i think. We're talking about numbers that probably degradate overtime. At least a little jared. I'm wondering are you guys modeling out when you think that this is going to be a one of these vaccines or both or more are going to be widely commercially available in two thousand and twenty one and when we get to a point where we view that we have in inoculated population here in the us because obviously we spent a lot of time talking about timetables. Here and stimulus is a bridge to the vaccine but it seems that market is pricing this much sooner than the likelihood of this being widely available to our population. I agree. i mean. I look at all of the street models when i kind of you know. I'm trying to figure out where consensus is at least on my side of the business. Where consensus is for you know. When the the mass production the mass distribution will occur. And i think most models kind of want to you know a first quarter on allie of multiple vaccines. And i think the more realistic pitcher just based on the fact supply chain is really never dealt with something. This dramatic in terms of this many injections ready for the public at these temperatures. We're talking about you. Negative twenty thirty degrees that during the have to be story at least initially. You've really never dealt with anything quite like this. But i think that the expectation that this is going to be an early twenty. One event is probably a little bit too optimistic. I'm i'm fairly confident. That is we get to the spring and summer. It's going to be More realistic and obviously more substantial early. Twenty one i think is gonna is gonna prove out to be a little bit too optimistic. I wanted to get quickly. Jared to the point that you made in your note which i thought was really interesting. That is the pricing right now. A lot of people are making twenty to forty dollars a dose for these companies. But you're expecting that over time. That price comes dramatically down in line with the pricing of other vaccines in the past. Yup definitely this is one point. I don't think investors are paying that much attention to the flu vaccine. That's available to all of us. Every year goes for about a dollar to two dollars. Depending on the manufacturer that includes the h one n one back seen within it. So i'm not really sure you know how the government as the biggest purchaser of these vaccines at least twenty twenty one and probably twenty twenty two is going to be able to withstand this type of pressure companies are really gonna charge upwards of forty dollars per curve engine in order for the two doses of vaccine. I think it has to come wildly down over time and especially as more competitors. The market of we haven't really seen the full data from america you to that earlier though J. j. still has a novak's mccann sanofi's are all major programs. If they all work. I would think pricing goes way down into next year. Jared great to speak with you. Thank you youtube. Thank you jared halts of jeffries a lot of interesting points the other one In his note is that he doesn't wanna be long socks in the manufacturing phase and. I think that's an important part to tim. We speak about this all the time. It's almost absurd to think that investors would be making a call on a vaccine play based on the vaccine. We don't know the pricing we don't know really the the progression we don't know the time line. We don't know the cost involved and the things that have been moving stocks in biotech and pharma and healthcare have been more related to regulation Affordable care act lack thereof public private hospital. I mean that's the dynamic. And if you want to a one-size-fits-all to me. Jane jays the name you go for. Because they have their farmer exposure. It is trading at farmer businesses growing higher than some of the others but it's their medical devices. Business that stabilized in the last couple of years. They're testing business. I j. and j. been A kind of a quiet underperformer. And i think a name that you'd probably perform coming up. Tesla's ceo elon. Musk taking to twitter.

"I love Henry my friends on the show because they're all super smart and NFC better at doing this than I am. So I met to play Madden right now. So I've been trying to figure out if you ever wanted to wildcat formation. He puts a new a quarterback. Why is it so hard differ about Canucks of Madden to let him take off and run? They want to do the play action fake. And then by then the defensive ends crash in. Let's probably thought conversation calling four four eight nine two two seven zero three still here are panel political strategist really rely politico. So for the crazy people who you call in. We're gonna save the crazy call into the show, and we're gonna make some space for like normal people in the middle. So Todd it's gonna take a while before we get to you and your taught, but we're going to like normal people talk in between joining us on toss it back over to a Michel because. We have the first step at with President Trump at during the state of the union address. What's going to be the next step on criminal Justice reform that you think both Republicans and Democrats will be able to unite on. Because all this is bipartisan legislation seems to be an issue particularly with the number of white people who are getting arrested for no ope during the opioid epidemic. And overdosing what's going to be the next thing that people can agree on that? We can see game push through the next thing that we're going to see are definitely going to happen at the state level and primarily decriminalization of marijuana. We're seeing that new Ford in several states across the country. In addition to that looking at a more means of being able to decrease recidivism right now there are at least in seven states movements towards making sure that there are there's more funding for mental health clinics specifically for those who are reentering society, but also being able to partner with local businesses. So that there will be some opportunities for those who do get out and. And so that they can be able to take care of their families take care of themselves and actually decrease the likelihood that they will be able to they will re enter again. So what we're seeing is actually a lot of things happening in terms of economic development, which is something that is supported by the Trump administration, but also being heralded by a lot of Democrats across the country. And so wolf that. Where were the areas of pushback where where who are the people who are against something along those lines because the scenes commonsense? And let's do it. What's what's the hold up with decriminalization of marijuana? One of the hold ups is going to be and it has been thus bar several sheriffs across the country specifically coming out talking about the fact that this could lead to more crime specifically violent crime. So they are is a strong link that they're trying to make between marijuana use and violent crime, which anyone who's looked at any of our most recent policy studies, and by recent I mean over the past ten years showcases that those who are not directly linked at all. There are several people who are recreational marijuana users who had never committed a violent crime in their lives. And actually a lot of those who are currently incarcerated with those with charges related to marijuana consumption are not people who committed violent crimes either. Jared. Halting Beck over to you. Why do you think more Democrats haven't made part of their policy agenda because the things that as a as I said, it's a very, you know, it seems like in the Democratic Party. This will be a no brainer for that. To be your primary issues, you're focusing on. Why haven't with more of a mainstream push on something like this? I'll push back. Some I think to pivot on the twenty twenty field you've had outright marijuana legalization bills that have been proposed in the Senate and the house Senator Booker, I think is is the original co-sponsor of the marijuana legalization act. I think that's the name of it. But I think you all can can double check. And no, sir Harris has been on that Bill and Bernie Sanders is building that Bill. So I mean, you had people who I think you've been really leaning in. I think a criminal Justice reform primarily in the Senate. And I think it, you know, we give President Trump legitimately. I think credit on the first step back, but rose Cory Booker, quite frankly, who did a lot of the heavy lifting on the democratic side. Answer the Harris. What think those to have emerged as a leading voices in the Senate Democratic caucus irrespective of color that have been believing this issue. I think for democratic voters in twenty twenty. I think that's a question. I asked her to Warren think that's a question to ask Santa Claus. Which are I think that's a question as that O'Rourke? And quite frankly, the architect of the war on drugs is Joe Biden, I think in the ninety four crime Bill. So I think the question is will where does he stand on this issue now that we've seen the folly of war on drugs that did not actually we didn't win that actually lost that war on drugs, especially black, folks. So I think at the end of the day, you have I think a number of democratic voices at a standing up with real proposals on the table that I think hopefully, we'll be a part of the mainstream and a part of democratic platform at twenty twenty. I have a hard time. Seeing it not being the case because I don't think you can have real criminal Justice reform without taking on marijuana league. Listen, I think that's a key. That's a cornerstone of what real reform looks like and Janelle all on that note. Even when we had the first step at working his way through we had some old school Republican Jeff Sessions, we had Mitch McConnell. We had a Senator cotton who are against any form a criminal Justice reform. What can Republicans do to be on the right side of history and come together in a bipartisan manner and not be seen as the you know, Grand Old Party, the grand old wizard party that made people see them as being I think we just have to keep pushing forward continue to push initiatives that are are speaking to issues that pertain to our community and most importantly elect people on our side that share the same concerns that we share? So making sure that we are reaching out to individuals who have roots in the community secretly. I love bis business owners who are minorities who are who have conservative. Values and belief in the principles of the Republican party and putting them up to run for office as we're continuing to move out of the old the old way of thinking and moving into the new way of thinking. It's interesting when you have a Republican, a democrat, someone independent leaning, a centrist, and we all can agree. Okay. This is what black folks need going into twenty twenty. So how can we push that? As being just kind of a cauterize an issue as being a a litmus test issue, particularly going into the South Carolina democratic primary for on the left side of the aisle and part of the overall convincing strategy for the Republican side of the aisle, assuming that it's not a primary challenger for Trump. How can we get this into being the pure political mainstream at home longer seem as being simply a special special interests are niece issue? Aim by feels like how Joe because I think I might be the only south Carolinian. Here, you know, and I think that with the primary coming up. I mean, the the democratic primary election South Carolina's almost six percent African American and in criminal Justice reform will be a hot topic. In a presidential candidate. Because if you look at the primary map once you get to South Carolina, you're in California, then you're a Super Tuesday that's for genius North Carolina. And as I think Georgia, and you've got the southern states of front loaded into primary calendar, and that's what African American. I think that's what we've got the most influence is in this primary cycle and the map sets up nicely to make meaningful criminal Justice reform real. And I think fortunately, you got at least two candidates in the race. And I'd add Senator Sanders. I'm not a fan. I think anybody who knows me knows. I'm not insert a warrant has also I think to some degree spoken on these issues. You now have a critical mass of candidates in the field who have serious proposals on the table that do everything from eliminating cash bail to marijuana legalization to think there's a Bill and now find the number for you that does a four run. One of kind of a review of federal law in this space that will hopefully produce recommendations that we can we can live with. I think another topic is police accountability. I think we need to be really really serious about Warhol. The department of Justice should be playing and bring a real pattern of practice, suits. And making sure that no one is above the law, including the police, and I think we're at a point now where this is enough of this is in the mainstream where we'll have Democrats in twenty twenty either do what we asked him to do or they'll take a seat. And I think we can be really clear on that. Because our vote matters that much Robert I probably also add that the lexicon is already here. We've we've reached a point where you're looking at some of the moves Don by right on crime out of Texas. If you're looking at what's happening with with CKI, and these organizations that are working towards and have been moving towards criminal Justice reform at this point for a while when you're looking at the Democrats and Republicans on this issue. One of the things that we're continuing to see is that raise the starting to slowly be pilled back board, you US released a report a month and a half ago at this point one and two American families have had an immediate family member incarcerated that's not one in two black families. That's one in two American families despite race what we're seeing is that criminal Justice system has affected families across the country and in berry demonstrative ways. So I think that what we are going to see going into twenty twenty is members of both parties advocating in reaching for ways that we can actually address this issue because it reached a boiling point to where it can no longer be ignored. Well, you know, it's interesting before we go to a break. It seems like the what we didn't know all these years was the way to get criminal Justice reform for the black community was to get a whole lot of white folks locked up, and then people will start start caring. So apparently, that's what we need to do. So y'all go here go there. Get your mouth get your August, August off because y'all are helping black folks the more you all O'day are. We'll be back after the break. News and talk thirteen eighty W A. Okay. Are you passionate about your views? So he Robert Portillo on people passionate politics on news and talk thirteen eighty w.

"And joining us now is Jared halt is the research associated right wing watch a project of people for the American way, he previously tracked and provide an analysis on fringe media for media matters for America and specializes in outright and so-called. New right media. In addition to the logic culture and influence of right wing, social media. Welcome to background beefing Jared halt, plus it'd be here. Well, thank you. Sharon wasn't that much right wing media on social media was on display today or under investigation before the sentence committee. But it was the executives of both Twitter and Facebook Sheryl Sandberg. And Jack Dorsey, they basically told the senators who are concerned about the Russian influence in the elections from the last election and going into this twenty eighteen election, but. Doesn't look if they got many concessions if any from the executives of Facebook and Twitter, and of course, Google didn't even show up. So what was your reading on it? Because basically, what sambergen Dorsey is saying is that the health fight these ineffective accounts, like the Russian trolls and bots, but they want band conspiracy, theorists and and propaganda. Yeah. So today's hearings were a whole lot of the same thing. We've been seeing at prior hearings on this subject, which is that these tech companies. I come to these hearings. They face a lot of questions, but they don't seem to have a whole lot of concrete answers. And I think that's kind of what has fueled the frustration with platforms like, Twitter, and Facebook, and etc. Is that these companies have pledged to consumers that they are going to clean up the platforms to make them safer to cut down on misinformation and make it at least more difficult for bad actors or foreign? You know, governments to interfere with democracy on the platforms. And I'm afraid today as I was watching this hearing I felt like I was experiencing a bit of deja vu from prior hearings. So what do you make of a Google not showing? I mean, Senator Marco Rubio said they were either arrogant are unwilling to face tough questioning. What's the questioning that tough? Do you think? I don't think the questioning was really too tough to be quite Frank. I I think that, you know, some senators and representatives had sort of important questions that have been asked for the last couple of years of these platforms. Namely, you know, trying to get some concrete answers on the way that they plan to enforce these promises that they've made to consumers but have failed to do. So to point in a way that is clearly tangible, and it's reassuring and then the other half a few GOP members of congress reiterated these conspiracy theories about alleging that these companies have discriminated against conservative on the platform in some way, as far as Google not showing I imagining how the last ones went I believe that was in July. It seemed to you know, come across a bit of a circus. A lot of the questioning from members of congress felt performance unless substantial so I can imagine that Google would not want to subjugate itself to another round of that. Right. But but Google and Facebook their business model is known as violence capitalism. So then okay to give up on their business bottle are they so they're trying to sort of suggest that Cambridge analytic is use of their data was an aberration. That's what it's all about. Isn't it basically the user who thinks they're getting Jima for free? It's actually they become the product. Right. That's the the whole business model, you know, because these companies dominate the weapons such a major way, you know, and they are still private businesses. So they are motivated primarily by their bottom line. And you know, because of that we've seen not just the camper China political stuff, but I came out recently that Facebook was selling information to banks and that sort of thing. So I there's not a real financial incentive for them to to act swiftly or you know, to the degree that I would imagine that many consumers would desire that they do. Now in this hearing today before the Senate intelligence committee where they see as a Facebook and Twitter testified in the audience were Alex Jones, and this guy Charles Johnson, an internet troll who's been banned from Twitter. For threatening to take out a black lives matter activists. And of course, this other woman, Laura Luma another outright activists, and there was a in the break when Marco Rubio left the hearing room he was confronted by Alex Jones who heckled him. And then at one point Alex Jones, put his hand on Senator Rubio shoulder. So let's just play the clip of that exchange. Well, I think the bigger biases against freedom of expression. Everybody should be there's a there's a look I I support going after there exist. Heckler gago. Saying that I don't exist. I don't know who you are man. I don't. Sure. Me and these. He plays dumb. Infowars dot com. Facebook regulated. Snack. All right. Are you? Tens of millions of us water. Rush limbaugh. Joke over. That's why we didn't work. Here's the question. Here's a question. Don't touch me. Again, I'm asking you not to touch, I know, but I don't want to be. Take care of myself. Oh, he'll beat me. Didn't say. Silence. Me. You are literally little dog. People in the office threatened to physically take care of me. And that was of course, an exchange at took place today in front of the Senate intelligence committee hearing room in the car door where a group of reporters were talking with Senator Marco Rubio. And I guess the point that Marco Rubio made in that clip, Jared is an important one where a basically cyst about about after having been called a frat boy in gangster thug and snake like. Bye. Alex jones. He then the report and say you guys take care of this clown. You guys take care of this clown. And then he told the reporters, I know you've got to cover them. But you give these guys way too much attention where making crazy people superstars. So we are going to get crazy people. I think that's an important point that ruby as making and here you, and I we're talking about Alex Jones, for God's sakes. How do you how do you deal with this phenomenon of these horrible trolls at the same time not give them oxygen? Yeah. That's something. You know, that sort of the extra central question of, you know, frankly, the work that I do it's. It's a way of making sure that, you know, these bad actors are held accountable for their actions, and that their influence in the broader media sphere and political sphere is made public while at the same time, not giving undue attention. So I, you know, the way I parse that when I approached my work Alex Jones is is, you know, quite a newsworthy figure. I believe primarily because of his relationship to the president having hosted Trump when he was a candidate in two thousand fifteen and have claiming on air that he is sending documents to the White House and speaking with people in the Pentagon and stuff if we are to believe that is all true. At least sending the documents part is he's worth covering because somebody who is as unhinged end. You know, a bit off the wall as he is having influence on the levers of power in this country is incredibly newsworthy. And it's it's worth, you know, really laying out who he is. And what he believes when when it comes to other ones. I also feel that oftentimes the influence of the sort of far right right wing internet trolls and the communities they have online. I often go understated. Whether it is for Chan the anonymous online message board, or it's simply Twitter campaigns and hashtag campaigns that you have the ability that they've fine tuned quite well to be able to steer a conversation and mainstream conservative circles, and I think the fact that these hearings, you know, the fact that GOP members of congress are talking about shadow banning, and, you know, censorship of conservatives online something that was born in the circles online inhabited by these conspiracy theorists. Speaks volumes to the sort of influence that they can actually have. Well, the Florida Republican Representative MAC gates as actually championed this character. This Chuck Johnson guy. I mean, this guy's obviously this party Republican. I've seen him on TV a lot. But there's no question that Alex Jones has a fan in the Oval Office. Just the other day when Trump made his weird tweet about Google attacking the algorithm spicy saying that Google's not giving the right wing media fish, shake and that the so-called fake news is dominating the Google searches. Of course, Google tried to be rational say, no, you know, it's an algorithm. We're talking about these aren't necessarily in no bias involved. But then later in the day at a photo opportunity. He said on camera Trump, you know, a lot of people are really angry about censoring, these conservative talk. He went on and on. And he was champing Alex Jones. There was no way that he wasn't talking about anybody else. But Alex Jones. So my understanding is Alex Jones and some of these other guys like Johnson, and and this woman Laura Luma, they're claiming now they're attacking the chief of staff the widest general Kelly they saying he's he's stopping this stuff getting to Trump's desk. Well, I tend to believe that's one of the only times I believe Alex Jones, frankly. Yeah. And I, and I think that is probably not the worst thing that Kelly could do to be honest as someone who has watched of hours of infant wars. I am of the personal inclination that it's. It would be better. If we didn't have this in the Oval Office. But here we are well, but you were involved in in getting John's taken off Spotify and Spotify. This statement about info wars is that the reason they banning it. This info was expressly and principally promotes advocates in incites hatred or violence against the group or individuals based on characteristics. Not because of his speech, but because of his hate speech, and if you've been watching Hondas of to this guy, and I have great sympathy failures result of that. What is really disgraceful about? This guy is what he did to the families of sandy hook. I mean, imagine losing your child in kindergarten. And can't even bury the kid because he's the assault rifles just blew their bodies apart. Then you find your being harassed by Alex Jones has acolytes coming to the house and saying that you're part of some government conspiracies to take away people's firearms. And then you have to move seven times to get away from these people then eventually have to sue Alex Jones, which is what's going on now with the family of the sandy hook. I mean talk about people being punished. After having salt rubbed in the wound of the unspeakable wound of losing a child is I just find that about the most despicable thing. You can imagine. Yeah. In other common themes on info wars is very vicious and gross attacks on LGBT, people civically most recently against people who self identify as being transgender Jones also encourages his audience to take up arms by weapons and get ready for a civil war that is going to happen between the so called deep state or against the media or against liberals at large, and you know, all of this in tandem creates a very toxic contribution to the discourse that you know, as we've seen after sandy hook and David hog the. Man who survived the park Lynch shooting who took up the cause of gun reform. He had his house was called swatted where people call in a police raid, and that that's incredibly dangerous. So it's not necessarily, you know, Alex Jones wasn't shut down because he's dissident voice. He was shut down because he incites hatred that has frequently bled out into the real world and caused serious harm and damage to the people that targets. Well, but this is where you get back to Trump who clearly is a fan of judges and his statement the other day in the White House in defensive Jones and against the people in a Facebook..

"jared halt" Discussed on WRIR.org 97.3FM

"We'll look into a number stories and issues in the news will begin with the testimony today from Brent Kavanagh where he of the skated tough questions from Senate Democrats with layers of lofty legalism, while being handed groveling softball questions from Republicans about Harry's kids feel about the way the hearings are going Paul campus. A professor at the university of Colorado law school, and author of jurists mania, the badness of American law who blogs at lawyers guns and money joins us to discuss the fascist nature of this political theater in which one side plays hardball and the other fumes in impotence, and while Kavanagh's confirmation appears to be a foregone conclusion, there were hints of questions from Senator Lahey that the nominee may have been less than truthful about the hacking of lazy mail, which if pursued might tip the scales. But given the lockstep nature of the Republicans on the committee and the determination to get Kevin is confirmation as a trophy for the GOP base before the election. It is doubtful that anything short of a video of cavenaugh drowning kittens or cavorting with Satan would derail the confirmation of Trump's second Justice onto the supreme court in part because of the saturation of scandal. Fatigue from the constant outrages of our porn star prone president, then we'll look into the possible political affect a Bob Woodward's new book. Fear Trump in the White House, which is already getting enormous media. Attention ahead of its publication. Next Tuesday poll fiery, the Washington Post media reporter joins us to discuss the difference between Woodward's book and earlier exposes of a chaotic and dysfunctional White House and whether the shocking revelations about a president who himself is a threat to our. National security could move the needle in terms of influencing Trump's base inside the Fox News bubble. Then finally with hearings today before the Senate intelligence committee at which the CEO's of Facebook and Twitter, testified about Russian election interference and data manipulation propaganda and hate speech on social media. We will speak with Jared halt a research associate at right wing watch who specializes in alt-right and so-called new right media and the influence of the right wing in social media. He joins us to discuss the altercation outside the hearing room between Senator Marco Rubio and the conspiracy theorist and hatemonger Alex Jones. And joining us now is Paul campus. Professor at the university of Colorado low skill. He writes for both popular and academic audiences and has been a vocal critic of the American legal system in numerous articles and essays and in books such as against the law and juris mania the bad debts of American law, and he blogs that lawyers guns and money. Welcome to background briefing, Paul campus. Thank you, Paul. And today, of course, it was more of caviar and these hearings, and it's it's kind of ridiculous on the one side. The Democrats are complaining about the lack of documentation and attacking him on his record. What at least what they have of his record. But on the other side, the Republicans suggest, you know, asking these ridiculous softball questions. You know, do I understand judge Caveney you like little puppies. You know, Lindsey Graham going on and on about how he fed the homeless Cavanaugh. And then he then Graham gets into this whole thing about how we used to confirm supreme court justices Scalia was ninety six zero was something in ninety six to four. And and all of them were in there. Not in the ninety s for what happened. He said plaintively what's happened to us. Well, I felt like I was screaming at the TV saying what happened was Merrick garland for God's sake. I mean, I couldn't believe the selective nature of the way the Republicans see this candidate. But not in the context of the kind of thuggish behavior of Mitch McConnell. Yes. I mean, it's obviously extremely hypocritical even by political standards, and it's also farcical shorter some Shannon bombshell revelation, which by the way, I don't think is out of the question, certainly from what center Lahey was hinting around about in regard to. Lying on cavenaugh part in regard to hacked emails, and the like there could still be some kind of bombshell revelation, but short of that, obviously, we know what's going to happen here. And this is just all my kind of pointless theater. And it's it's difficult to take seriously. But as a law professor, can you explain to us what this when he's asked by dicta and about decisions he made protecting some really disgusting employer. Who is ripping off these undocumented workers in Durban was accusing him of of not following the law, and he gave this incredibly complicated answer that suggested he was following the law. So what is it about that distance between the human consequences of what you do which is screw over a bunch of people and defend some real scumbag and the majesty of the law that you're upholding. I don't get it. I think part of what's happening in this kind of situation is that people like cavenaugh like to argue that the very fact that they are upholding really reprehensible behavior of legal is itself evidence that they are dispassionate interpreters decision makers because they wouldn't be doing this if they were just working from a clean slate. But that they're constrained by legal materials to rule in the way, they are. Now, I think Kevin is a tremendous exaggerating the extent to which he's actually constrained in this way. And part of what's going on. Is that people like him simply aren't nearly as disturbed by the kinds of cases that Durbin was describing as you know, cabin on his ilk. I, you know, federal society right wing judges are so what we're seeing here. Are really two different political conceptualization of what it is to be a judge. But Kavanagh's conceptualization is just as political as a, you know, a liberal view of what a judge is supposed to be doing. So you wanna sense there could be a kind of educational value and the sort of a hearing. But it's to me. It's just overwhelmed by the the the posturing, and especially by the incredible hypocrisy of the Republicans, and this kind of a situation in which as you mentioned just sort of overwhelms everything else. And again, I'm speaking with Paul campus, who's a professor at the university of Colorado, low skill erase for both popular and academic audiences and has been a vocal critic of the American legal system in numerous articles and essays and in these books such as against the law and juris mania. The madness of American law, any blogs at lawyers guns and money. Well, even Senator Feinstein, the champion of abortion rights and also the champion of gun control. She. She went after him on Roe v. Wade she didn't really get anywhere. And she didn't even mention the case with the young immigrant woman seventeen year old who got pregnant and two of the three judges allow to have an abortion as did the state of Texas, but cabinet ruled against her having an abortion, no one of the other centers. I think it was Devon picked up on it. But I was suspended that they weren't really focusing on real life cases, where he made rulings that really tip is hand the extent to which he can't wait to overturn Roe v. Wade. Yeah. I think that's right. And that's clearly what's going on. But the Democrats are under current conditions powerless to stop it. And I just hope that this gets remembered the next time if there is a supreme court nomination, and the Democrats have a majority in the Senate they need to be completely ruthless. And as disciplined as the Republicans have. I've been and I recognize that the Republicans have managed to essentially hijack one of the three branches of government through procedures, which until very recently would've considered utterly unacceptable. I e the blocking of Merrick garland nomination, that's you know, that's where we are now, and we can just dispense with the in my view naive fiction that supreme court nominations or anything, but pure power, politics, and all of this all of his blabbering above, you know, qualifications. And you know, how brilliant this guy is. And like what schools he went to? None of that stuff matters matters is what what political vision does the nominee have of the law, and whether that's shared by the the elected officials who have to make the decision to whether to put him on the court for a lifetime appointment or not. Well, as I say, I was disappointed in Senator Feinstein, but it did I think Durbin did at least pick up, and again, even though it was clear the situation that this young woman was in and w kept saying the clock is ticking. And you'll holding up the possibility having an abortion till becomes too late and on the basis of what in the Texas law has supported her and the other two judges on the appeals court supported and why why didn't you and for the life mate? I do not understand what he's argument was. But again, it was all couched in the sort of lofty Byzantine nature of jurisprudence. Yeah. But people need to keep their eye on the ball here. There the ball is this is a right wing Neo confederate reactionary judge who's being put on a lifetime appointment on the supreme court because the seat was stolen from Merrick garland. That's the only thing that matters. And all the all of a nonsensical arguments about his, you know, the fine points of the judicial philosophy are, you know, quite marginal. And so I guess we have to go through this charade. I'm personally hoping that Senator Lee he was Lahey was hinting around that he might have some big revelation, maybe something like that can happen. But short of that, you know, he's going to be confirmed. He's going to be on the supreme court probably thirty or forty years, and this is kind of absurdly wheel on wheel the system that we've created in regard to supreme court, you know, nominations. And and tenure. We'll continue to be a real blight on the American political system. Well, I'm told that there is some a lot of stuff that the some of the stuff is on the democratic judiciary side, but they're being blocked by best humor and Funston. You don't wanna go there? It's sort of reminds me of what happened with Joe Biden stopped the second witness from testifying to buttress Anita Hill's claim after they Republicans attracted eighty hill. Had somebody stepped up and said, yeah, this is exactly what this is the same thing happened to me Thomas would never been on the court, and he only got on the cook a one vote margin. I think was fifty forty nine something like that pretty much what's going to happen with Kevin. So, you know, they lay thing, I guess he's it seemed a little lucky was hitting at it. But I don't know whether he's going to go for the full throated. I mean, it gets down to the real questions about people like Schumer who represents Wall Street in a what point do we get rid of these gutless interests? And have real Democrats. Right. I agree. And I guess we're gonna find out, but I think the Democrats are slowly coming to their senses in regard to what actually happened. It's taken a long long time for them to come to the realization that the Republican party plays power politics, period. It doesn't care about anything else. And it's agenda right now is largely controlled by the white ethanol nationalism that put Donald Trump in office. And that's what's going on. And it's a kind of existential crisis in regard to the identity this nation going forward and supreme court nominations are and in my view on fortunately large factor in this ongoing crisis, simply because we have this frankly, you know, anachronistic and on justifiable system of lifetime tenure four surpreme court justices. Well, you have to. To add to this. The fact that structurally we're heading into a situation where the Republicans will control the Senate and therefore the courts indefinitely because by the year twenty forty because that fifteen sixteen states that will have most of the population of this country. Mostly blue states, you'll have seventy Republican senators from the red states and only thirty democrat senators from the blue states where most of the population is and we learned from the last election that the three million extroverts, Hillary Clinton got didn't mean a damn thing. So that's just going to get worse over the years. The popular vote is going to go to the Democrats in the Senate is going to be solidly in Republican hands. Well, I mean, I do so even long-term the US has got to get rid of having an unrepresentative legislature in the Senate, and it's got to get rid of the electoral college, which is also very deeply antidemocratic. You can't have democratic legitimacy. If you keep getting anti-democratic results. From your elections. And that seems extremely basic and straightforward. But again, I think a lot of people are having difficulty coming to terms with the actual situation in that regard. Well, Paul campus. I thank you very much for.
