Rep. Mike Johnson: Dems Want Illegals to Become Voters
"Why do you think Democrats mostly I'm not going to say not some Republican Democrats mostly just turn to it just looked the other way I mean it fits their children to infect their people It affects their state It affects everything Why do you think they turn away and look the other way 'cause this has been going on for the last over two years under the Biden administration but they have literally just said we don't care If somebody gets raped we don't care if fennel kills somebody We don't care But yet they get away from we have an election People don't make them pay the price Well that's right Sorry for that sound effect in the back I'm in the hallway of the Congress Listen here's the thing In-house judiciary we've had some very revealing hearings over the last couple of years We weren't in control and we couldn't set the agenda but of course participated in the Democrats of the fiasco hearings that they had At one of the hearings and I said you and I have talked about this before essentially the clip A chairman Jerry Nadler he's now the ranking Democrat ranking member of House judiciary He was the chairman when they were in the majority the last two years He admitted in one of the hearings that he would love to see all municipalities in all states around the country do what New York is doing And what is New York doing They have turned illegals into voters They allow illegal aliens who are in New York City to vote in municipal elections They are not the only jurisdiction in some other blue states they've done the same So look I think that that at the end of the day is the only logical explanation I think they wanted to open the floodgates literally open the borders bring all these people in and turn them into voters for the democratic side If they give them enough benefits and they think they can keep them on the Dole that way and that they'll vote against conservatives and Republicans who want to restore Law & Order I mean it sounds like some sort of conspiracy theory but they've admitted it to us on the record So I think that's what's happening I think that's the biggest explanation for it And that's why they will refuse to acknowledge the plain truth that everybody can see We have an open border and it's a disaster

"Dancing lines in D.C., hey Nancy. Thanks, Carol. A prisoner swap between the U.S. and Russia means WNBA star Brittany griner is heading back to the U.S.. But the U.S. is releasing notorious Russian arms dealer Victor boot in return. President Biden says he has spoken to griner and she is safe and on her way home. This is a day we've worked toward for a long time. We never stopped pushing for her release. It took painstaking and intense negotiations and I want to thank all the hardworking public servants across my administration who worked tirelessly to secure her release. The president says the administration is still negotiating for the release of American Paul Whelan, who is serving 16 years in Russia, on spying charges. The UK, France and Germany are condemning Iran for executing a 23 year old protester today, a move that signals the Islamic Republic is significantly escalating its crackdown on anti government unrest. President Biden says he will move quickly to sign a bill protecting the right of same sex marriage. We get more from Bloomberg's surf chat. Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler is a longtime sponsor of the bill. I am very proud that marriage equality will be enshrined in law. Banking Republican Jim Jordan said same sex marriage is not under threat of being overturned. This bill is simply the latest installment of the Democrats campaign to intimidate the highest court in our land. The yeas are 258, the nays are one 69. The motion is adopted. The Senate added a provision to allow religious organizations to deny services to same sex couples, and that one enough Republican votes for passage in Washington are Chapman Bloomberg radio.

"Yields in the Eurozone have failed to shore up currencies. I mean, I know mark's got some thoughts on real meals which will get to you later and that could be the whole explanation. Visit also to do with the way bond markets don't necessarily understand yet how to trade this. They don't know whether to be buying bonds because of risk aversion or selling bonds because you're concerned about what fiscal authorities might do how much money they might be giving away. Is there anything that can shore up the Euro in the face of these challenges? Yeah, you would have thought that I suppose the ECB and we've heard a comment from Isabel schnabel last week that this year dollar client decline is unwelcome. It's an energy price shock. It's a dollar shock. Really impacting the Eurozone in terms of trade. So negative income shock, which is clearly to weighing on the Euro here and to try and get the Euro higher from here. I mean, obviously it seems unlikely that the gas storage is going to turn around or the energy crisis is going to resolve itself very quickly. You'd have to expect a far more aggressive ECB in terms of what they're prepared to do with kind of policy rates. But I think weird ING think that we will just have one 50 basis point further rate height from the ECB in September, then that will be it for the cycle. So the market is pricing about a 125. We think they're only going to deliver 50 and you can probably conclude that it's now a particularly positive outlook for the yearend in that environment.

It's 5 19 on Wall Street, live from the Bloomberg interactive broker studios. This is Bloomberg daybreak. Let's get more on some of these results from the last of the big state primaries in New York and Florida for that. We're joined right now by Greg valliere, chief U.S. policy strategist at AGF investments. Greg good morning, obviously the marquee race was that battle in the upper west side and the upper east side in the newly redrawn 12th congressional district of overwhelming victory for Jerry Nadler over Carolyn maloney. What do you make of that? Well, good morning, Nathan. It was a pretty ugly race, obviously. Nadler won by more than I thought he would win. He won handily. But I would say the biggest race of all last night was an upstate New York that a Democrat won to fill out a few months of a term that expired. But this revolved around abortion. And I think that sends a signal to both parties. How so? We've seen the abortion issue crop up as something that could potentially be a driver for not just the democratic base, but potentially some more of those suburban voters. Is that kind of what you're getting at? Exactly. So we now have two races, one in Kansas, about 6 weeks ago. And then last night, in which abortion drove turnout. And I think for Republicans who feel they're going to take the house and they probably will, this is a concern. It's certainly a concern and Senate races as well because I think turnout is going to revolve around the issue of these very strident laws that ban abortion under virtually any circumstances. Is this the kind of issue that could supplant concerns about the economy more broadly among voters? We have seen some signs of economic slowdown at the same time, we've started to see some signs as well that inflation is starting to ease up at least just a little bit. A little bit, I still think that probably the economy and the inflation will be dominant, but now you do have another issue. You have the issue of abortion. And if that raises turnout by ten or 12%, it could make a big difference in a lot of races. And there's another issue that may begin to emerge today in

This is according to NBC and CNN. This in the democratic primary for New York's 12th district. Also in Florida, Democrat Charlie Crist has won a spot on the ticket to face Ron DeSantis, the Republican governor. Chris easily beat Nikki freed. Desantis may run for president in 2024.

He said it's very clear when inflation is 8 or 9%, the fed runs the risk of un anchoring inflation expectations and leading to very bad outcomes. And in the latest economic data activity has weakened from the U.S. to Europe to Asia and it puts more pressure on the fed in hiking interest rates to bring down inflation without sparking a global recession.

"Primaries in two large and trend setting states in the United States as we head to the midterm elections at Baxter with global news in the 9 60 news from Ed. Yeah, that's right, Brian, and there may be some trends here nationally too. Bloomberg's joining us, Jeannie Professor of poli sci iona college, Bloomberg contributor and an author of American democracy in crisis, always so good to talk to you, Judy. We are getting some movements now as a matter of fact, aha head up on the Bloomberg terminal CNN and NBC calling for Jerry Nadler in the enabling maloney race. This is an extraordinary circumstance. It really was so good to talk to you, Ed, you know, it's not unusual in these redistricting years to see members facing off against each other, but in this case, you had two members who have been in office since 1992, they were freshmen, Carolyn maloney, and Jerry Nadler, and they are both committee chairs, and they are sort of beloved members of the democratic coalition, and they faced off against each other because of redistricting, so Jerry Nadler, who represents the upper west side of Manhattan, maloney, the upper east side, and as you mentioned, it looks like Jerry Nadler, who got the endorsement of The New York Times, got the endorsement of Chuck Schumer and many other people. He has handily beat it looks like Carolyn maloney at least by the numbers we're seeing now with looks to be about 75% reporting he's up upwards of 56% to her 25%, so a big win for Jerry Nadler and a big loss for Democrats. Okay, now we're also getting a hothead. Well, these are just, these are just one networks. So let me go back and focus on the so we need a two confirmation or a Bloomberg confirmation. District ten New York. This will give us some direction on what Democrats may be thinking regarding party tilt or am I just off base? No, you're right. So this is a really interesting race. There's a few of them, so New York ten, we have a number of really interesting candidates running on the democratic side. You have Dan Goldman, who many people remember he was the lead prosecutor for Trump's impeachment regarding the Ukraine issue. He's also heir to the Levi Strauss fortune. He put about $4 million into this race. He's setting off against many other candidates, but one in particular of note mondaire Jones, who's a representative who decided to run in New York ten after the head of the democratic congressional campaign committee, Sean Patrick maloney, decided to move into his district and run there, so you had mondaire Jones Dan Goldman and a number of other New Yorkers setting off against each other. I don't see a result in that. It's still a little bit early. To say who's going to win there, but a number of interesting candidates one we should also mention is new. She's a very interesting member of the New York State assembly, who is very popular in New York as well. So that's going to be a tight race. And hygiene, we need to quickly check on Florida, the Democrats have really firmed things up there. Yeah, they have, and it looks like we now see governor desantis has an opponent. Charlie Crist, the former Republican who became independent and is now a Democrat, he was running against freed Nikki freed the state agricultural commissioner. She was the only statewide elected Democrat, they had a really raucous sort of last few weeks here. She really hit him on abortion. Many of his stances when he was a Republican in office, of course he served as governor of Florida many years ago. But he has at least as far as we see now with 99% reporting, has beat her pretty handily, many Democrats seem to be trying to find somebody they think can go against desantis and hold this tight, and they've decided that Chris is the one, and of course that's going to be much watched because desantis looks in addition to Trump like a likely 2024 presidential nominee or candidate at least on the Republican side. All right, Genie, so good to talk with you. I just want to mention real briefly that Val demings has won the democratic nomination for Senate. So that will be a demings Rubio contest which should be real interesting. Thank you very much. Jeannie sanzeno. Bloomberg contributor author of American democracy in crisis.

"With Doug prisoner about 15 minutes to see how the after hours session is moving President Biden right now is putting the finishing touches on an important speech in national address he will deliver tonight On gun violence This was added to the schedule about halfway through the day We did not know about this this morning With a new sense of urgency following yet another shooting this time in Tulsa happened yesterday vice president Kamala Harris was asked about it earlier today The president will be talking more about this later But we have been monitoring the situation quite closely And the latest report of course is that for innocent people lost their lives And many more were injured The president will speak at 7 30 p.m. Washington time I suspect he will be on time as there's a bit of a dance here the choreography with the TV networks at that time of day things get a little more sensitive And it follows a long day for the House judiciary committee as I mentioned debating and voting today on a package of gun control proposals That include raising the minimum age to buy semi-automatic rifles a ban on high capacity magazines would ban bump stocks These are the same issues that we've been talking about for a couple of days now The ranking member on that committee congressman Jim Jordan Chastised Democrats for moving too fast No one wants another tragedy No one wants this to happen again That's why it's regretful That Democrats have rushed to a markup today in what seems more like political theater than a real attempt at improving public safety or finding solutions Chair of the committee sees it very differently as you might suspect New York congressman Jerry Nadler with his response Too soon my friends what the hell are you waiting for I'll write that There are of course questions about whether any of these would have stopped any of the recent shootings Any of these ideas from red flags to expanded background checks We know moving the age would have stopped one of them But yesterday's shooting in Tulsa a whole new scenario as you heard Kamala Harris just say four people were killed Wendell Franklin is the police chief in Tulsa On June the first mister Lewis purchased a semi-automatic rifle from a local gun store that semi-automatic rifle was an AR 15 style rifle He bought it the day before Two doctors including the shooters surgeon were killed along with a receptionist And a patient I want to assemble the panel to get the insights here of course a Genie chansa and Rick Davis Bloomberg politics contributors Rick I'm going to start with you the president is set to speak in a little more than two hours from now Was it Tulsa that brought him to this point and there's a pretty high bar for going to the networks at this point following the Obama administration when you need a half an hour of air time on a Thursday night That's right Joe I mean we've now seen an era where presidents can give these kinds of prime time features and not be covered by the network So the fact that this is now being covered is a pretty exciting thing Now it's hard to tell what was the motivating factor obviously the Tulsa headlines is a disturbing attack with an AR-15 But also think it might have as much to do with the national activity Rick we're having a little bit of trouble with your line Maybe we can reconnect with Rick and get the same question to Jeannie here and we'll get back to Rick Davis in just a second Jeannie It's a big job for this president What does he do at the time that he's carved out for himself Well what he's doing I think and you rightly said we didn't know about this this morning We didn't even know about this halfway through the day until they confirmed it because this is quite a change for The White House Let's recall this president said he was going to let Congress do its work He was not going to get too too involved Now we know he is getting very much involved So what they're saying he's going to do is he's going to press Congress on the need to pass common sense gun safety legislation He's going to talk about this epidemic And what an epidemic it is We're in the 153rd day of the year This is the 233rd mass shooting the one in Tulsa yesterday Those numbers are outrageous the 20th since you've all the ten days ago So it is an epidemic and the president now is doing the only thing the president can do is to try to use the bully pulpit to get the public to push their representatives in Congress to pass legislation and of course the clip you played by Jim Jordan just astounding were moving too fast I don't know how many more people need to be hurt or injured or killed before Congress moves They haven't moved fast at all They haven't moved in years I think Jerry Nadler would agree with you on that Rick If we don't get anything new here from the president if he simply urging Congress to act then what is the point Is it securing this particular audience You have to have something to say when you interrupt jeopardy for people in their living room That's right And I think part of it is that president wants to get ahead of what may be some productive activity in the Senate I think the house is really just partisan noise It's part of the story today and I agree with Genie It doesn't pretend any progress But the real game is in the Senate and there is a bipartisan effort being put together to try and find a bill that both Republicans Democrats can sign on to And I think that's what the president is really trying to do is create momentum around getting something done in the Senate And all these things are being forced into the same timetable And so the more pressure that he can put on the Senate to come up with something and not let people back off the table I think is his real primary objective here How does he do this Genie without isolating for lack of a better word half of the country He needs to speak in a way that cuts through the sort of partisan cliche that comes with gun control conversations And this is a president who has been written off by many Americans when it comes to this And that's the difficulty faces he ran promising to bring us together after January 6th in the midst of the pandemic He said he was going to unite us you know go beyond this red blue divide And this is a real test for him to see if he can do it You know reach something like a unification we saw potentially in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine or in response to 9 11 but very tough to do You know one model he has quite frankly is the senator from Connecticut Chris Murphy who's talked about the fact that following sandy hook he was drawing a line in the sand This is what had to happen go big or go home Now he is saying he wants to show Republicans that if they do even small incremental steps on gun safety that they will benefit from that and the country will as well and they'll be rewarded So I think he can use Chris Murphy smart tactic as a way to do that but a really really tough thing to do because of course people have very strong concerns that the government is coming after their guns any time you talk about this issue So how does he keep that from happening Even if he says it Rick people won't believe him If you're sitting down here advising Joe Biden helping him to craft this speech how does he break through With Republicans with conservatives with people who actually own guns who feel like they are the ones being targeted Yeah I think it is a high wire act What the president's got to do tonight as you describe Joe is to push for some changes in the way we regulate firearms and to incorporate other things that Republicans may want on things like mental health and school safety but he's got to do it in a way that you know he's bigger than a piece of legislation And he's really speaking for the American people that want action because by and large most people do want something to happen They agree with Jeannie that this is an epidemic that it's out of control that states and the federal government all have to work together to try and protect children in the loss of life And so he does have some wind at his back in that regard But it's ephemeral It'll go away soon if nothing is done on Capitol Hill So he's got to leave enough of an opening He can't demagog it To the point where Republicans and Senate feel like they've been trapped and now walk away from the negotiating.

conservative leader Scott Morrison called to congratulate him Scott berry graciously wish me well And I thanked him for that and I wish him well Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries I'm susannah Palmer this is Bloomberg I'm Barry ritholtz you're listening to masters and business on Bloomberg radio my extra special guest this week is Gerard O'Reilly He is the co chief executive officer and chief investment officer of dimensional fund advisers The 40 year old firm has about 1500 employees and manages about $650 billion in client assets so let's talk a little bit about the growth of DFA and your role there You're a bit younger than the typical member of your management team how does that affect how you do your job What do you bring to the table that some of the more senior managers might be missing So I've never really thought about it to be perfectly honest and maybe that's in part because I've always been on the younger side whether it was in high school relative to the rest of the folks in my class I went to college when I was 16 And so it was a little younger than the other folks in my class And then when I started working at dimensional after doing a PhD was younger than some of the other folks in the research team So it's always been kind of the state of play So I don't think about it too much I would say I have to mention we have a very academic view of how to interact with each other So interact with each other with respect But challenge And argue the facts and the issues and the best ideas win And so I think that when it comes to how to interact with colleagues whether they're younger or they're older it's exactly under that formula You have to operate with respect listen to the ideas And then the best idea wins Our view is don't defend the idea just because it's your idea embrace the best idea and the right idea because ultimately long term that's going to be better for the clients And if you make it better for the clients you're going to have a better business So when it comes to business clients first makes business very straightforward on how to make decisions and what decisions to make And I think that that atmosphere I've always enjoyed a dimensional And so therefore age has never been never been an important ingredient So full disclosure my firm is a client of dimensional funds where it helps wealth management uses dimensional funds as one of our primary asset managers along with Vanguard BlackRock et cetera but dimensional is definitely one of our larger fund providers and I'm very aware of the process that dimensional goes through in order to make sure that their clients understand the philosophy and understanding the model with an eye towards avoiding the sort of flavor of the month hey I'm chasing this hot manager No now I'm chasing that hot fun family ETFs are very much a break from that prior embrace of working very closely with clients Tell us a little bit about the internal discussions that must have taken place before you switch to ETFs which hey anybody could go to their online training account or Robinhood or whatever it is and buy the ETF How have you managed around that So there was two big drivers of that decision The first was input from clients And as I mentioned earlier we work with financial professionals So we don't work with the end retail consumer We work with financial advisers like firms like yourself who can get that level of understanding and knowledge and experience so they understand what we're what we're trying to accomplish A lot of those firms were saying we're using ETFs more and more frequently on behalf of our clients and we'd like to be able to use dimensional ETFs Could you launch ETFs please And so we took that away we thought a lot about it And that was kind of 2018 time frame And on the books with the SEC back then was a new proposed ETF rule And what that rule effectively did was it made ETFs much more straightforward to bring to the market much more straightforward for the end investor to evaluate but then also clarified some things around the inner workings of ETFs that were important to us because we're not an index manager We have a lot of the benefits of an index based approach that include broad diversification low turnover low costs but we have an active implementation And so those rules got passed in 2019 the fourth quarter of 2019 is when the SEC adopted those rules rule 6 C 11 for anybody who's nerdy enough to want to look into them And that was a bit of a game changer for us We could do now what we had done in our mutual funds for decades in an ETF wrapper So there was no give up on the investment proposition As soon as that rule was passed we went into full launch mode By June of 2020 we had announced that we were going to launch by November of 2020 It's almost a year after the rule came out We had launched Those were the two big drivers On the tax efficiency side that wasn't as big a driver for us Largely because in your familiar with this our mutual funds tend to be highly tax efficient And we had tax managed mutual funds that had similar tax efficiency ratios to ETFs So we had very very tax efficient approach ETFs take it up a little bit our ETFs do But it was more what our clients were asking for And the rules changed such that we could deliver an investment proposition that was on par with our mutual fund investment proposition Really interesting Coming up we continue our conversation with gerardo Riley dimensional funds chief investment officer and co CEO discussing.

Rep. Jerry Nadler Calls for DOJ Review of Kyle Rittenhouse Case
"Jerry Nadler has come out and he has said that we want to have the Department of Justice have a review of the Kyle rittenhouse case. Now, it's almost hard to believe that the Department of Justice would come out and press charges against an 18 year old after he gets acquitted by a state and local jury of his peers. But I wouldn't put anything past this regime. Jerry Nadler has called for a federal review of the verdict by the U.S. Department of Justice. He said, quote, the heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice, he says. And so it's a dangerous precedent, which justifies federal review by the Department of Justice. Justice can not tolerate armed persons crossing state lines, looking for trouble while people engage in First Amendment protected protests. Okay, I mean, let's just go to this statement. First of all, armed people crossing state lines. What does that have to do with anything? I know that in the state of New York crossing state lines might be like a really big deal, but in the Midwest people cross state lines all the time, Illinois Wisconsin, it's just you do it all the time. The reason is that he wants to try to provoke the federal government to try and charge Kyle. That's
The Most Insane Leftist Responses to the Rittenhouse Verdict
"Excuse me, the daily wire. Collected, they listed. We're going to post this, Mike online dot com. The most insane leftist responses. To the rittenhouse verdict. President Biden, while the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge the jury has spoken. What do you mean you're angry and concert? What are you angry about? What you wanted this kid's head on a platter? Is that what it is? Self defense isn't supposed to be self defense? How about Gavin newsham? This nutcase, governor, America today, he said, you can break the law, carry around weapons built for a military. Shoot and kill people and get away with it. That's the message. We've just sent to armed vigilantes across the nation. You see, newsham, these kooks never condemn the rioters or the looters. No, no, no, no. The guy that had a gun in defect was trying to protect a business and was defending himself. He's the bad guy. Not the pedophile trying to kill him. No, no. He's the good guy. How about governor J B pritzker, of Illinois? This classic. He heard about Newsom evidently instead hold my beer. Pritzker said, carrying a loaded gun into a community 20 miles from your home and shooting unarmed citizens is fundamentally wrong. How about the congressional black caucus? Here was their statement. It is unconscionable our justice system would allow an armed vigilante who traveled to Kenosha Wisconsin and killed Joseph rosenbaum Anthony huber and the wounded gauge grows gross Croix to go free. Colin Kaepernick. He said, well, but I can do you better. We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist. NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, ha, let the boy be black, he said, and it would have been life. Hell he would have had his life taken before this BS trial. Sad. House judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler. These are not insignificant people. This is a very prominent Democrat.

Rep. Jim Jordan on the Implications of Big Tech Breakup Bills
"Break up hills, which aren't those at all Like you said. They're just using that to get us on board. My fear is they're going to take that from the private sector and now enshrined that with government regulators who are going to use these big tech break up bills to then use the power of government to make sure private companies out there. Doing things against the shareholder interest. And think about how many pension funds are invested in these companies that are now going to be pressured to basically lose money and screw your pension over under the guise of big tech breakup. Yeah, we've already seen this. This play in action with what we just referred to when you had a major big tech company, the CEO of the head of that company. Communicating via email with the guy who runs a big agency who is the highest paid official in the government with Dr Fauci and Mark Zuckerberg colluding to keep information from the American people last year information that frankly, looks like it turns out to be it was the truth, and they kept the truth from us. So now we're going to say Lina Khan, who just got appointed to to chair the FTC, You know where she just got to point this week. So that's my Federal Trade Commission where all this power is going to go. Guess who she worked for. Before she went there. She worked for Jerry Nadler. David Cicilline E on the House student Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee. Do you think she really wants to make sure that that these big tech platforms don't censor Dan Bongino? So that's what this is all all about. I mean, and you're exactly right. The one of the other empty stairs chairs is, um, Democrat is Becca Slaughter, and she has said, we should use anti trust laws to stop systemic racism. What? So you're that's where they want to go with this, And that's what I fear. Let's do this. Let's let's let's change checks in 2 30 so that you take away their liability protection and let's break them up. Let's break him up. Yeah, but you've got to make sure they don't get this liability protection. So not not make not make this union between big government and big tech so they can further harm us.

Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign
"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

He promised to deliver the very covert relief in the form of $2000 stimulus checks. The president Trump called for. They should have listened to their own words of the past. I leave you with the wise words of Congressman Jerry Nadler. Effective impeachment is to overturn the popular will of the voters. We must not overturn an election and remove the president from office. Except to defend our system of government or constitutional liberties against the dire threat, and we must not do so. Without an overwhelming consensus of the American people. They must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties. And opposed by the other. Such an impeachment will produce the divisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come, and we'll call into question the very legitimacy of our political institutions. American people have heard the allegations against the president, and they overwhelmingly oppose impeaching him. They elected President Clinton. They still support him. We have no right to overturn the considered judgment of the American people. Mr Speaker. The case against the president has not been made. Him. There was far from sufficient evidence to support the allegations and the allegations even if proven true, do not rice the level of impeachable offenses. This is Jerry Nadler, who was one of the managers of the first impeachment trial of President Trump speaking during the Clinton impeachment in 1998, or 90, 99 not sure exactly where the speeches problems in an official proceeding. The American people are watching and they will not forget You may have the votes. You may have the muscle.

Oh, trust me, these air globalists, and you don't play with globalism. Believe me, unless you you're gonna have a food taster with you every time you go out and have something to eat, I'm just being straight with you. But she survived it. But 61 Republicans 61 Republicans voted against her. And you want to know who the true conservatives in the Republican Party are in the House of Representatives. Those 61 that voted against her. So I'm making it really easy for you. 145 that voted for her. They ain't worth a damn The 61 the voted against her. Those of the conservatives. You want to re elect one of them at Gates. And many you're going to be asking. Well, who are the other 60? No problem. I thought you'd ask. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna post that up on my Facebook page. You could go to the Steve Sanchez show dot com Go to my Facebook fan page, and we will have that posted tomorrow off the 61 conservatives in the House of Representatives that voted to remove late Liz Cheney as a GOP conference chair. Those were the 61. You can trust Matt Gates is one of them. Thank God for someone like Matt Gates. Mad Gates is bold. Matt Gates will make a phenomenal VP. Someday Matt Gates is even willing to leave his seat in Congress to defend Trump in the impeachment trial. And you know what is something about Matt Gates? He means it. This is why they're after Matt Gates. This is why Nancy Pelosi doesn't like Matt Gates. This is why the Penguin, a k a. Jerry Nadler refused. Matt Gates when Matt Gates asked if they could start their committee with the pledge of Allegiance, But because Democrats hate America, I'm sorry, they just do. Obviously the pledge of Allegiance wasn't necessary. Ah cording to the Penguin Jerry Nadler. Gates. Asked to open the judiciary meetings with the pledge, Nadler says Once the day is enough, we're covered. These people have a disdain for the flag. These people have a disdain for America. Sadly, they do. That doesn't stop Nancy Pelosi. That doesn't stop Nancy Pelosi from continuing to open that big flap of hers, and she's calling Kevin McCarthy out. She's calling Kevin McCarthy a coward. She's saying that you know for him to refuse to censure Marjorie Green. She said. Well, we'll take action against her. If you don't have the guts, because you're a coward will take action against Marjorie Green. Yet they don't take action against AOC, who basically said she was threatened in her life was threatened because she was in the Capitol building when she wasn't even in the building. Did you know that? Yeah, That's fact that's everywhere. That's why there's a trend that's going on on Twitter that she's at Alexandria Acacia Smollett. And she has flipped out because she's a liar. She was not in the Capitol building. Her life wasn't an eminent danger. But she went on, and she cried crocodile tears because she thought nobody would find out. And now she's having her representatives say No, you don't understand. She meant she was in the vicinity. No, That's not what she said. I think we all know that. Liar. Liar! Pants on fire. So if you want, Marjorie Green removed fine. Just remove AOC from committees as well. And then I'll be happy when you think that's fair friends. I mean, again, it goes back to what I was saying. In the first hour, Jen Psaki could make a gay slur towards Lindsey Graham, and she's let off the hook. Ale SI can lie. She's laid off the hook. Matt Gates asks for the Pledge of Allegiance.

"The only way to bring healing is to actually have real accountability, which this trial affords. And so we will move forward with the trial. It will be fair, but it will move at a relatively fast pace. What so this? The only way for us to have healing and coming together as a country is if we destroyed President Trump to the point, and we just just selling him. This is another way to just smear his legacy. This is what they're trying to do. They just want to have him sit there. They can throw stuff at him, make allegations and just try him in the public to try to peel away Trump supporters from him and try to get them over to their side. That's right, and and his argument is schizophrenic. It's like, you know, really can't real accountability is acquitting Donald Trump. No real accountability is that we will acquit Donald Trump of what we're accusing him of. No real accountability is that we're gonna have this trial and this trial affords them the opportunity to smear him in the public mind, try to convince them that he incited a riot. He's dangerous. His followers are dangerous. Anyone who supports it really domestic terrorists and they're trying to bring the country together and against 17 million. Excuse me, 77. B plus million Americans in this country who voted for Donald Trump right now, maybe I'm remorseful that they did it. Obviously, I mean, it's gonna be theatrical, garment rending and teeth gnashing. I got that that Zab salute Lee what they're doing. But think about the outcome here that what he's declaring is that you know, really As a country. The on leeway for us to heal is to start a process that's going to end in Donald Trump Ng acquitted of what we're accusing him of. Right, so but well, then why go through the motions? If you know exactly how this is going to conclude Chuck Schumer If Joe Biden just told CNN he knows exactly how this is going to conclude what service does it does? What purpose? Does this serve for the American public? And the answer to that is actually just to make everybody much more agitated and animated. It's too engaged yet again, in reality show theatrics that have nothing to do with serving the American people. And we'll go about delaying Joe Biden's agenda. Now there is some upside I would imagine for. Some conservatives were saying, Well, Good hell with Joe Bynes agenda have to have the longest impeachment trial. You could possibly have just go for it because this will disrupt Joe Biden and the Democrats abilities to move forward with all sorts of horribles that they might voice upon the country. In the meantime, there's an actual covert relief package that probably deserves some attention with real struggling Americans, and they're not actually gonna get to it until March or April because they'd rather play political games. Absolutely, and we know and listen. Nancy Pelosi, so much is admitted. That's why they held up covert relief before the election. She admitted that and they stood and the people still voted for Joe Biden knowing that He's still voted for Joe Biden. So you know what stupid is as stupid does now they did walk. They did have the pump in certain the opening act of the play as we all know, because we've seen this and it's a reboot Is they walk the impeachment article? There's only once it wasn't a lot of paper. So they walked in peach more article over to the Senate. It was not nearly as much fun this time is. It was last time because Jerry Nadler was not part of this. And Jerry Nadler Walking me impeachment articles over the first time was the best part, which is why the reboot is not gonna be as funny as this or is entertaining as the original because remakes never are as good as the original. You need a character like Jerry Nadler and I would I remember watching it thinking, Are they going to put some kind of like orange vest on him as he's walking over Because he's going to get lost? He can't keep up with the group. But no, no, Jerry now than they were walking 6 ft. Apart with their masks parading in front of the cameras, you know, do each each doing their part, although, as other walked it over, Although you've got to give him credit yesterday, I guess the one feature that I enjoyed was that they put a child waged on Eric Swalwell, and they walked him over. So that was nice. That was, you know, it's kind of like when you see them at Disney World, the kid running around on the leash. It's actually like a teddy bear backpack when the tails long enough that the parent and hold it, That's how they got Eric Swalwell over to the Senate yesterday. You know, my brother had one of those when he was a kid for except it was back in the data. They were like that, like these were just downright confinement. Garments. When my brother had one follows the story is that a straitjacket? I can't find my way We know it was.

And then it had a zipper up the back so he couldn't unzip it and get out And it had literally a leash that hooked onto the back of it that my mother could hold. It was blue because he was a boy.

"She says. Just credit quoting her. They're looking for consistency, and they're going to be permanently suspending accounts that promote conspiracy theories. And anyone talked about Ewing the election. Okay, so they're gonna be considered. So let's go to this Washington Examiner article which would be in the show notes. This is a must read today. You may want to keep this handy from your friends, especially a liberal friends. Come out you gone? How dare you question What happened in the 2020. How dare you look okay. Not allowed to question what happened in the election. I thought I was supposed to be fired right now for doing that, by amazing how I'm still on the air. So the Washington Examiner article let's talk about who questioned an election. Not my president. How 2020 ones. Inauguration Anger compares to the 2017 Resistance movement. Make a solar Washington Examiner. Twitter says they'll be consistent. If you dare question election. They're gonna boot you off in permanently suspend you. So let me recommend the first suspension in the interest of consistency and principals come up. You know Twitter doesn't have any actual principles. These people left this lunatics. But here's screenshot number one from the Washington Examiner. Peace. Remember, you're not allowed to question an election. Ever ever so this person needs to be kicked off. So let's go to screen shot number one quote Washington Examiner in 2019 when it was asked if it bothers her that Trump rallies chant, lock her up. Clinton responded. She believes Trump is quote an illegitimate president. Right, claiming voter suppression for her look. Oh, my God. What? Just can't get worse, Does it? She wants Hillary Clinton went on. And this is how is she still on Twitter? This is really incredible. Seems like such a breach of principles and consistency, she said. Quote. No. It doesn't kill me because he knows talking about Trump that he's an illegitimate president. Wow. Clinton said. I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they use from voter suppression, no evidence of that voter purging no evidence of that either the hacking no evidence of that either to the false stories. He knows that they were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did. This is fascinating because the Twitter exact, Joe says. They just want to be consistent. You're not allowed to question election or promoted conspiracy theory. Hillary Clinton promotes three conspiracy theories. In one statement while simultaneously saying Trump is an illegitimate president, therefore, by default, questioning an election why is she still on the platform? Because Twitter are lying in Bacile losers? That's why Let me suggest another person who should be banned. If Twitter was consistent as they called in their principles, you're not allowed to question Election, Joe. All right. Well, let's go to screen shot number two. Let's see what Who's up next out, Jerry Nadler. Jerry Nether. With Trump. Less than a week from office. Rep. Jerry Nadler declared that though he believes Trump was legally elected Russian interference in his campaign makes his election a legitimate. I thought that was no bueno. I'm just checking You said you want to be consistent, right? I don't know. Democrats are allowed to question an election. Call the president election religion Democrats, not you. About Jimmy Carter. Jimmy Carter. We can't ban him. He was a former president. Why not? You said you wanted to be consistent. Check this out from the Washington Examiner. Another doozy here. Jimmy Carter, Cy on. Noted Golden Calf of the left Jimmy Carter quote. There's no doubt the Russians interfered in the election. He's promoting conspiracy theories. I thought he's not allowed on. And I think that the interference although not yet quantified, no, never quite because it never happened. It fully investigated would show that Trump didn't actually win the election in 2016. Carter said he lost the election. It was put in office because the Russians interfered on his behalf again. Jimmy Carter magically to does that performs two out of the necessary What four tasks to get kicked off Twitter, and he's magically not band kicked off to another man. If he's on to whatever it is he banned from Facebook or anywhere else. I'm just checking Let's go to one Last one, the ground, um of the Democrat liberal radical lunatic movement, the beloved Golden calf. Nancy Pelosi again. You're not allowed to question election unless you're a Democrat. Here we go in 2017. A day before Mueller's appointment, Special counsel the trial, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted our election was hijacked. There is no question Congress has a duty to protect our democracy and follow the facts again. I thought you were not allowed to do that. I want to be consistent, forcing the policies really? The Democrats are calling the 2016 election a legitimate promoting a Russian conspiracy. Do not those Total frauds. Dan Bongino show.

Trump set to miss required deadline for 2021 refugee quota.
"Trump administration appears to be ignoring a deadline to establish how many refugees will be allowed into the United States next year raising uncertainty about the future of the forty year old resettlement program that has been dwindling under his administration. The Thousand Nine Hundred Eighty Refugee Act requires presidents to issue that determination before October first the start of the fiscal year. With only hours to go on Wednesday, the trump administration had not sheduled consultations with Congress that required before setting the annual figure. There was no immediate comment from the White House, which usually announces the target numbers or the departments of State or Homeland Security which were involved in making the determination. Democratic lawmakers blasted the administration for not meeting its obligation. Trump's violation of the nineteen eighty law will bring our refugee admissions program to a halt leaving thousands stranded abroad with their lives at risk New York representatives Jerry Nadler, who is chairman of the House Judiciary? Committee? Trump froze this year's admissions in March falsely citing a needs to protect American jobs as fall-outs from the corona virus crashed the economy. Advocates fear the government is intentionally delaying its plans for the twenty twenty one fiscal year as a way to eventually eliminate the refugee program. No more refugees can be admitted after Thursday until the president sets the ceiling for the New Year Secretary of State Mike. Pompeo said the administration is committed to the country's history of leading the world in providing a safe place for refugees. But advocates say the government's actions do not show that in addition the State Department announced last week it would no longer provide some statistical information on refugee resettlement sparking more concerns advocates say the trump administration is dismantling a program that has long enjoyed bipartisan support and has been considered a model for protecting the world's most vulnerable people.
The Big Tech Hearing Proved Congress Isn't Messing Around
"The purpose of today's hearing is to examine the dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. Roger the covert 19 pandemic. These corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. As American families shift more of their work, shopping and communications online, These Giants stand to profit. Locally owned businesses. Meanwhile, Mom and pop stores on Main Street facing economic price is unlike any in recent history. Rhode Island Democrat David Cellini, opening today's House hearing with the heads of the world's big tech companies. Amazon's Jeff Bezos out of Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google Sunder Pitch I. The foremen faced hours of questions from House lawmakers over whether they've used their superpower status to crowd out competition. And enrich themselves. The House Judiciaries Antitrust committee, which Cellini chairs has been looking into that question for the last year. Joining us to talk about the hearing today is tech expert Tim Woo. He teaches at Columbia Law School and is the author of the book The Curse of Bigness, Anti Trust in the New Gilded Age. Him welcome back to press play. Thanks for having me here. Well, you've argued for a very long time that the's tech giants have gotten too big. What do you think today's hearing accomplished in terms of getting more support to break them up? Well, they I think there are you know, for the first time, putting the most intense documents right in front of them and seeing how they react, and I think what we've gotten out of them, especially on Facebook. Is already some admissions of anti competitive intent that to my mind, make the case for filing a complaint even stronger. And what were some of those admissions that you heard today. Well, Ah. Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about by Jerry Nadler about the his. Ah, why he bought Instagram and pretty much Zuckerberg admitted they were ah, dangerous competitors. We sought to eliminate them at Natalie reminded him that it's illegal to buy off competitors because I don't want to compete with them, and they left it there. But, yeah, that was, I think a big admission and the main thing I've taken from the hearing so far. But isn't that part of business of hostile takeovers and trying to squeeze out the competition isn't part of the American way of doing business, so there's a difference between beating out your competitors and buying them. And since about 18 90. It's been illegal to buy a company just because you're sick of competing with him. You know, you could imagine. Let's take Coke was tired of Pepsi People's Children, Coke and Pepsi, you know and said, All right, forget it. We'll just buy each other and, you know, settle the so so Now it's been illegal since 18 90 or so. Right. So when it comes to Facebook, what about the issues of how it Spreads misinformation, especially campaign misinformation, and, you know, fake news for lack of a better term. Yeah, I know. It hasn't so far. Um, it has a little bit sorry, especially hate speech. I think the big issue there that they're focusing on and Is this idea that that Facebook has an impunity because they have such a secure market position that they're not really afraid of advertising boycotts. They're not really afraid of people leaving That's the least a point that the House representatives were trying to make, and so therefore they don't really have an incentive to clean up their act. What about the other companies? Amazon that also has incredible market share. Can you first catalogue just how big Amazon is and how much bigger it's gotten since the current virus epidemic? Yeah, you know, the Amazon has closed in on the market cap of 1.5 trillion They have 280 billion in revenue. They have increased dramatically. Actually, stock prices increased since the beginning of the Corona virus by I don't know the exact percentage don't want to get it wrong, but by a tremendous amount, in fact, And there was one day in which Jeff Bezos gained $13 billion personally, so they are the biggest of big attack for the first part of hearing they didn't get any questions, but representative Dia Paul brought it in accusing them. Of lying in front of Congress about how they treat third party sellers and pressing bass. Those hard on how he runs his marketplace. So they they, they've got some of they've got some fire. Coming in. Yeah, I guess the problem. There is not only well they sell, you know products from third parties always there slow selling their own products, and so they are. I guess in competition with 1/3 party supplies on their own platform. How does that work? I mean, that's I think the acquisition or the problem is that people worry that Amazon has become more or less the dominant online retailer. They have some competition Homer, but you know, more or less dominant. So you make it on Amazon are Or you don't make it at all. And if that's the marketplace, the prospect of You come up with successful thing? I don't know Better mousetrap, and then Amazon makes their own copy of it. So the Amazon version of it and then sells it for less. You know, that turns into a sucker's game, and I think that's been the main complaint about Amazon is ah, less that they You know about their competitors or something but more that they have turned the marketplace into something of a rigged game for their own products. Right and a sweet noted Jeff Bezos is the world's richest man. Right now, the company is you outline is just so big. It's hard to even wrap your mind around it. Is there any way you could break up Amazon or hasn't just become too big to break up? That's a good question. You know, it hasn't been subject to a lot of discussion, probably for the reasons you suggest. Most of scrutiny of Amazon is how they treat the marketplace. I think for a true old school antitrust type who just believes that too much power to concentrated should always be broken. Would want to switch, you know, break Amazon into some kind of pieces. One way might be to break off their Web services division, which is a dominant in its space. You could also imagine, as with it and t breaking it into baby Amazons. I guess that are supposed to compete with each other. But I know it hasn't been unlike Facebook and even Google. Has been talks about how would you break them up? Think Amazon. It's been more about can they? Can you get them to run their at their market place better? And then Google. Obviously a search giant and it's become a verb. It's such an intimate part of who we are at this point again. How would you break up Google if you could It's a good question. Let me let me say that Google has come under fire this hearing both from Sicily knee on the idea that they are essentially eating their ecosystem That is to say. You know if you if you like like with Amazon actually similar that if You know, you could come up with a really successful Web service of some kind in your sort of small enough that Google will make a version of it and then send all the traffic to it so that that's the accusation against them. As for you know, what would you do to Google one You could say, don't do that. That's what the Europeans are trying to dio. Another would be to say, Well, listen, it Google, you run the search part and just leave it there. Don't do everything else. Okay. Maybe run Gmail, maybe right maps. But all these other little things that are just clones of other companies. Stay out of that, or make them be independent companies. I should add. By the way, there's you know, I'm maybe we get to this, but there's been AH, Google face us a lot of Republicans during the hearing, talking about different issues. Trying to get Google to admit that it Ah Is too friendly to China. Eyes too unfriendly to the US Pentagon. That's been another theme of this hearing is that I think should be mentioned. Well, you bring up China, and I guess the argument against breaking up these companies is that they're competing against Chinese companies, which In many cases have the backing of the state and there's there's no limit to their monopolistic practices. And so if these are global companies, should there be different rules when it comes to monopoly now than there were, you know, back in the 19th century. Yeah. Or the 20th? Yeah, that is the argument. So you know, kind of goes like this. If you break up Facebook or make fix books, life difficulty the Chinese will take over. It's kind of a national champion like argument. So we have to have our guys. Um I don't find it convincing at all. Last time we heard that kind of argument was when Japan was the all great mighty power that was going to take over everything in America. And they said it so you can't break up the tea and you can't break up IBM. I think we've had a better track record. Forcing American companies to be competitive. It's not breaking them up, at least putting him under heavy scrutiny like Microsoft and hoping a new generation arises. So yeah, I think that's a pretty lame excuse not to enforce the law that put it that way. So what do you think is going to come out of this? You know, I think from what I've heard there was some documents that were coming out of this that nobody has seen. And I think they put more pressure on the administration and also the states to file complaints. I would not be surprised if Google ends up on the receiving end of an antitrust complaint before November. And after this hearing, I wonder of Facebook's gonna get 12 or whether that's going to be something that the election decides. But, yes, I think it adds to the pressure to file actual cases as opposed to talking about it.
