"I think should and will are very different things. Should he likely he should given that this really lends the appearance of impropriety. Lends the view that he can not be impartial. Whether he can be impartial, is not the question. No one is questioning whether he can be impartial. It's really more that perhaps he is forfeited the right to be impartial because the association looks so close. And you know, I will be very clear here. This is not the first time that this question has arisen in the context of the thomases. Reporting from Jane Mayer The New Yorker and Danny Hakeem Joe Becker of The New York Times has made very clear that Ginny Thomas's work as a consultant often involves working with individuals who are litigants and repeat players at the Supreme Court. So there has been there have been other occasions where you might wonder whether recusal might have been appropriate. It just seems in this particular case that the Thomas actually have a stake in this because Ginny Thomas is already implicated by sending these text messages to Mark Meadows. And so there is a federal statute that says that in circumstances like these, a sitting judge, whether it's a justice or a member of the lower federal courts, can not hear a case in which he or she has a stake in the outcome. And because Ginny Thomas has been identified as someone who was in the mix on January 6th, it would stand to reason that justice Thomas is someone who has a stake in this outcome, if only because he protects his wife or wants to protect his wife in this situation. And I love how you say, should or should he recuse himself or will he recuse himself. And so I'm going to focus in on the will part because I think a lot of people are wondering, who can make him recuse himself or who can hold him accountable? Is there anyone? So do you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Jonathan? I tried years ago. I stopped. Well, there's a person on The Real Housewives Cherie whitfield and she's so famous for at one point saying to someone like, who gonna check me, boo. And I think that's.

"At 55 Cares here. Sister Station. Of course, Donovan's tire and auto over on Ridge Road, of course in Blue, Ash and Dell, Welcome back. How you doing, brother? Good. Scott. How are you? But I'm doing fine. Um, this doesn't mean that you guys in the repair industry have any less work to do. But, man, I'll tell you what. I have never seen it where you drive past I was driving past Joe Becker's place Columbia Chevrolet. Just the other day, and it looks like there's like a half dozen cars on the lot there. I'm like I've never see generally the car dealership. You never see open spaces right. There's open space is a car dealers in Cincinnati. Yeah, yeah, It's absolutely amazing in it. I mean, it's just, you know, just like you said. The covert thing is finally hit, and it's hit the business hard and you know you're talking about, you know, there's no cars, I mean, Believe it or not, I mean, I know a buddy miners, the car dealership. Because it's probably been the most profitable year for him. Because what's happened is people there's no cars. They want cars, and they're like I want to buy a new car. Yeah, Yeah, We got to order it so then they order it And there's no. You know, there's no back and forth on pricing either. But you're that much it is. We're like, Okay. I just need a car. Wow. So it's a good thing, but You know, the other thing is in the automotive repair business. Wow. I mean, I just can't. I mean, we're busy. Everybody that is good is busy and again, you know? We're also having problems getting some of the parts for these cars, and, uh, you know, that's a tough thing, and it's just like No, Everybody finally is like, okay, we can go out to say it's the madness is unbelievable. It is. So are you. So if you bring your car into the shop to get fixed, you're like okay right now, And this is interesting to the the average age of vehicles on the road. The United States has gone past the 12 year old mark for the first time in history. Um, we have said the oldest fleet on the road right now that the average age is 12 years or older for cars on the road, which is incredible, right? Because you can't find new cars anymore. Yeah, You're absolutely really range. Here's another interesting thing is, you're exactly right. It's called them. There's always what people are taking these cars. Okay? They're gone them So two things. One The manufacturer. You know, GM Chrysler Ford only supports that car for 10 years. Mm. You got to call it 12 years old 11 years old. You're like, Oh, I need this park. And they're like, What do you call the dealer like, Hey, we just need to start. They no longer support that What, Really? It's like it's like Microsoft. Basically, if you're on if you're on Windows seven. We don't support that anymore. Yeah. We don't support that. And so what you gotta do is try and scramble and hopefully a dealership country still have one. But I mean, yeah, it's crazy. So The other thing is like a gentleman are here and my blue wonderful occasion. You know your color, and I'm not going to the manufacturer. So wanna get into that? I get it. It's burning oil, and you know they've had a problem with him. So he's like, you know, we want to, uh, you know, nobody repair shop game of prices like that. You don't want to with you guys. So he called me and I'm like Hillary how they put an Internet Because it's a problem, and I said I'm not going to and you know, so he's like, Okay, well, that's fine. Go ahead and put an engine. I'm like, I don't know if you want to do that. Yeah, but you need something to drive to work. That's the problem. That's the problem. He's got almost 200,000 miles on this car. And it's you know, it was pretty well and left it underneath. And I'm like, Hey, man, I want to advise you not to do it, right? That's all right. Let me see if I can find the car. Yeah, Good luck right now. And now does that also mean Dale then that there's probably cars on the road that people are buying that? Aren't in that good of shape. I mean, you can probably getting top dollar for a crap your product much like you said. If you're good, you're busy right now and the auto repair business. But that also means there's probably some people who are bad who are getting business because you're so busy. You got that, right? I mean, this is what's going to happen is exactly is a great point. You brought up Scott. As always. You broke up great points is what I do I It's my gift. It's my gift to humanity, Dale you should do on radio. But we're going to start seeing that right. We're gonna start seeing people buying these used cars, you know, And they're like, Hey, you don't have a problem with, you know, just bothered, you know? And I'm like, Yeah, Yeah. You just bought it, man. This guy, this guy really doctored this thing up So again, It's a great point, and it's you know, unfortunately, like people are calling. Either one of my shops. I mean, I'm scheduling, you know, almost after telling like this, you know. Wow. Yeah, it's um but you've got to get the car checked out when you behind used car. You have to have a check out. You know if someone doesn't let you check the car out, then don't buy run right exactly and only takes it. You guys do that. A lot of reputable mechanic will take a look under the hood. You'll check to make sure that you know, there's you know the old trick of sawdust in the transmission to keep it running and said, You know that they do that anymore. But there's other works around is that you guys know what you're looking for. You can spot a fraud and, you know, water damage vehicle, whatever it might be. Um, pretty quickly and it's worth the it's worth the money to have you guys take a look at it. You got that right? Especially now is the age of vehicles are where they are, and you can't get new cars right now. Are you seeing that, too? When it comes to if let's say that I have a computer chip problem with my vehicle. I bring it to you. You're on that Wait list like the manufacturer. I'd imagine if if a computer component, which there's many in a car these days goes. Is it taking a long time to get that in? Also? Absolutely absolutely, You know, I mean, that's what I have been trying to warn people on my show, and I've just been trying to warn people customers alike. Look, guys, I'm telling you, it's coming. You've got to get your cars in why the parts are still here and you know, and unfortunately, you know, you could see cars sitting for two weeks months. If it doesn't run, you know, And you're waiting for a part. You're you're stuck. Wow. So if you need routine maintenance, um your your suggestion then to is Hey, I don't need an oil change. Don't wait until you know your 5000 miles past or something on, you know, you want to get on the books now. Absolutely. I mean, believe or not. I mean, we're hearing all kinds of.

I have one of your original books in my hand. And i wondered when i got some other paperbacks that we gave away prizes and stuff before but i have original book and i didn't know it was. We're out at a friends and he goes. I have it. it's on the book. joe. Becker you gave give me my pretty sure. Got one of the originals and we go and we look and they're going for like a thousand dollars apiece here. I'm going holy crap. I'm rich flow. wait a minute. that's what they're asking. But i'm not sure they're getting. It opened up to the big open it up to the beginning and see what printing it is. It's ninety six. I know that's the copyright but does it say in the early pages second printing third printing fourth printing. Anything like that. We'll look he's looking at it it's Which is that one. it's one of the earlier ones. i'm sure it was. We were buying out. the miracle. kennedy libertarian party. All the activists in arizona. We and you had contacted safe second amendment for everyone back in the day and We were buying these by the case we gave every legislator we were being bud heads we go to gun shows and go up to the celery. How you sure you want to be selling very critical. So they didn't like people even selling it just it was a. That's a whole story in of itself. Let me go and do an intro for you a little bit and we'll talk about this in your new books coming up guy pimp. Your new book John ross is an investment broker and financial adviser in saint louis missouri and is. I'm retired for as retired financial advisor and is best known for his book. Unintended consequences now. He earned degrees in english and economics for her college in amherst massachusetts. Mr ross is a certified personal protection instructor and the author of self laws and violent crime rates in your states which was the first published work to empirically assess the effect of concealed carry laws and violent crime in america. He has authored several firearms related technical articles for precision shooting magazine and machine. Gun news says the age of eight. Mr ross has been an avid participant in many aspects of the shooting sports he's fired upwards of twenty thousand rounds of ammunition per year and by his own admission a member of the gun culture. And that's what this book is really about. You'd see a print further print because it doesn't have doesn't have a print on it you know. Yeah it. I'm gonna retire on your book. Man was done by the accurate press in missouri. So not the ones that always doing it. But yeah there's no this that doesn't say which printing it so. That's the first bob and i were both activists back in the day doing this guy twenty five years ago you know we were big fans man you know you. You want to know how this is going to play. Well it is playing out. Took your book and made a movie script out. It's gonna get just gonna get there so you we'll talk about that in a little bit but you know about your your new book. You got coming out all right well. It's time that i got well. We ought to like five minutes here. We got like three more segments after this. We're going to go full hour. We'll be done at fifty eight after so you got plenty of time okay. So here's the somewhat long version. My favorite fa way. The book came out. It implied that in the future we would have a different president. That's how it ended and We didn't clinton was reelected. And everybody wanted a sequel. But every time i started writing one things didn't fit at all with what was really happening in real life and i finally realized that i would have to. If i really wanted to write a sequel. It would have to be sort of alternate parallel universe where things that had really happened since the first book came out Didn't happen at all and we had a whole new All their history. And i just didn't like the idea of that so i tried a few things and ultimately gave up but it was always in the back of my mind and then in may i think it was may twenty third of last year. I was watching something on television. And all of a sudden they hit me about how i could write a sequel of sorts. That was all about everything that was happening right now and how i could start it with the very end of unintended consequences so as well. Yeah the let's put it this way. Prologue is about twenty pages maybe less Starting at the end of unintended consequences and it says something like prologue about twenty years earlier. And then as i did with my first book after the prologue i go back is Relevant times in history Some of them quite far back Centuries to set the stage of how we got to where we are now well. That's kind of what you did in your first book. The book started in the warsaw ghetto. You know it was Upright absolutely no actually no. It started just after the turn of the century. Okay but i remember history. Nineteen six with ad topper. Wine shooting all those wooden blocks. No that was true. Wasn't it of course..

"More enclosed in the heat them was Mark Jameson. Have Two restaurants one in Bucks County Pennsylvania one Lee County Pennsylvania both are old stone colonial hotels were petrified. You talk about improving ventilation systems we don't even have relation systems. We he radios we're going to get in in the next week or two although Pennsylvania's been very safe. Thanks to governor will and our area is not a hotspot anymore also takes is one person to come in and we're all just sitting ducks in their truly were scared to death. Let's talk about the money. How much is the gradual shift back to indoor dining helping these restaurants financially. You know I understand that restaurants are really desperate right now they're in such dire straits, but I'm not sure that endured dining is necessarily gonna pay off or you know going to. Help their bottom line more a lot of the upgrades that they're required to do or the upgrades that these should be doing to help their customers feel more safe are expensive. You know that restaurant owner just mentioned putting up pucks like Plexiglass I've heard reports of different restaurant owners up paying upwards of three thousand dollars to five thousand dollars just to put a plexiglass in their restaurants. Air Purifiers cost a lot of. Money you know they have to provide masks and other PP type equipment to their servers and to their other staff members like these things add up especially when the money isn't coming in as it used to, and I'm not sure at twenty five percent capacity especially in New York City where a lot of restaurants are you know teeny tiny and twenty five percent about maybe means six diners at once you know Max. Is really going to help their bottom line ultimately. That's why some restaurants are implementing a time limits. We have to leave at a certain time which sort of takes away a lot of the enjoyment of going out to eat Carlos Miami is such a great restaurant town. How big of a hit have restaurants they're taken have there been a lot of closures. It's it's hard to put a number on how many closures we've seen because a lot. Some places did close kind of with the hope of reopening at some point in the future I. Think you know the Summers in Miami? Are are slow to begin with. So it's really going to be interesting to see what happens in the next couple of months because honestly outdoor dining doesn't get really nice here until right around now, right right them in about the next two weeks. So the places and Miami I will say has done a really good job at making it easy for places to to make room for dining. In other words turning parking spaces into seating areas closing off parts of streets. Miami beach did to allow places for people to sit, and so we'll see we'll see if this really is a is a solution for them because like most folks want sit outside in the next couple of months and So this might play into giving them a little bit of a lifeline. Yeah terms of Lifeline Kush booth. Do you think there's any kind of support that the federal government could be offering to restaurants right now? I mean I think that's honestly the only thing that's going to ultimately bail out the restaurant industry is held at a government level. There is an a bill that's going through the house again, that does call four help for small businesses. Especially, the restaurant industry and you know people are really hopeful that this will pass I. Think it's it's the. First Time that restaurants have actually banded together to form a lobbying group besides the National Restaurant Association in the National Restaurant Association. Tends to represent a lot of chain restaurants. So this is the first time you're seeing a more independent restaurants band together to have a lobbying voice in the government. So they're hopeful you know that this might pass But I'm not. Sure it well, sure. In Washington it's it's a question Mark Kushner other innovations. In the meantime the restaurants are implementing that that in order to help them during this time, but that might stick around long term. Yeah you're seeing a lot of cool like cocktail to go programs I hope that cities keep adjusting their liquor laws to allow for this I think it's a way that p restaurants are actually able to make a lot of money on takeout and delivery is to be able to still have that alcohol up charge with the options. restaurants are serving cool meal kits that people can take home and still have you know the restaurant experience they're pairing them with videos of the chefs making the dish. So there's kind of. Like an interactive experience, people are doing really cool You're seeing a lot of innovations to of like people selling food through instagram like former actual restaurant workers. A lot of former pastry chefs just former line cooks like selling restaurant quality food through instagram thing cottage laws. So you can get like really high end pastries from like the former piece shot that gramercy tavern you know on Sundays in Queens like they do a piece box you know for I think it's fifty dollars and it's a whole assortment of peace, trees. Are seriously high end and it's cool to see. These types of businesses pop up. Sure. Yeah I could stick around long past the spend. DEMOC corals we've got about a minute left. I'm just curious how your job as food editor for the Miami Herald. How some of the reporters who cover restaurants how their job is just totally changed during this pandemic. Well I think it's a change the focus away from food criticism, which I'm happy about I like to write about stories that are very Miami centric in other words, plays stories that could only happen here. So you have stories like cousteau was saying about you know the guy who was the head chef at one of our top restaurants down here q who started It's like an Asian barbecue place who started his own little barbecues out in front. Of his house in taking orders through Instagram, we have a guy who had a successful a seafood restaurant, but he said nobody wants to order limp seafood delivered in thirty to forty five minutes. So he turned it into a classic Italian American Red Sauce. Place more comfort food that can reheat. Well. So I think out of we're seeing the most creativity out of restaurant owners and food people and and that's really been the most interesting encouraging part and. A the most interesting thing to document. For sure that is getting me quite hungry. I. Appreciate it guys Kushta is food and Wine Magazine's restaurant editor and Carlos free us is the food editor for the Miami Herald. Thank you to you both for being here. Thanks for having me.

"Gotten a huge advance for this. There was big demand for it and he just US couldn't believe that anybody gave a damn about any of the details of his life. He just could not believe that and his heart wasn't in it so he decided no no. Thanks so the money didn't matter it was. He just couldn't bring himself to people cared. And I know you're kind of the same way but Dogana Jeff diced there are some details that I want to wring out here people do care about. GimMe Your if you don't want to give me too long of a story. I WanNa know how somebody did. You grow up in California. Mostly yes okay. You start off in California. And somehow you have a successful career in things having to do with the financial world. And then somehow your Ron Paul Chief of staff and somewhere along the line you become an Ostra Libertarian. Teheran this is not the normal career path for most people so we are curious about. What were you reading? who were your influences? How did you because I didn't? I mean I I knew you existed. But we didn't have any mutual friends all of a sudden you just came out of nowhere. Who the heck were you? Yeah that's interesting. You know. I come from mostly mostly a background of libertarianism. I never went through a phase otherwise and that's mostly attributable to my father and to my older brother so when I was a kid in high school junior high. My Dad had some copies of books. Like the road to serfdom laying around My older brother Steve was getting a nineteen eighties. Eighties version of reason magazine in the mail. So I had some influences like that and of course I had some Ayn rand books that came into my possession which are very dog-eared which I still have today and my mom was probably not as thrilled about the randy and stuff because she thought it would make me an atheist or at least inclined me that way and I probably did go through a little bit of an obnoxious objective EST atheist phase to be frank in my late. Let's say late teens early twenties but for me you know. My Love was always literature. I thought I was going to be an English professor. Oh my God thank God we saved you from the. Yeah that's really what motivated me and I particularly liked Twentieth Century British Satire Evil in Wa. Graham Greene stuff like that. So my plan was hey. I'M GONNA go become a university professor and teach literature and and that sort of thing and at this point you know we start to get into the early nineteen nineties and I started to become aware that there was a PhD glut especially in California. And so I was going to school school in San Diego at the time and I started to rethink path and I said you know. It's the idea. Being a refresher appeals to me but I have to be realistic. And I don't WanNa be poor and and and Yada Yada Yada so at that point I thought about going to law school and ultimately did and from my perspective it sort of dovetailed with my personal interest because I was already a budding being libertarian. And felt that you know as a lawyer I might be able to help defend people against the state whether that would be criminal where I think you know rather regardless of whether the purses versus factually guilty of the acts the alleged to have committed. That doesn't mean the state has any moral ethical legal right to prosecute them and you know I ultimately went into tax simply because I felt like the tax payer was always in the right. There is no such thing as a just tax. There's no such thing as lying on your taxes or cheating cheating on your taxes that sort of thing and so in the early nineteen nineties I had a good friend Joe Becker who was a graduate who at student at UNLV because Murray Rothbart and Hans Hopper were teaching there at the time that was the reason he was there. So I was living in San Diego and he would occasionally say. Hey come on up to Las Vegas you gotTa see this guy. Marie Rothbart this professor so I said okay. I'll come up and drove up a few different times and Rothbart courses were always at night. He was very much a night owl so he taught his graduate sessions at night and afterwards they would all go to a little place not on the Strip by any stretch. This is way off strip. I think it was on Sahara Avenue. A little place called the stakeout which is a little sort of Gripe Video Poker Burger joint and I think it's still there actually and Murray would come and talk to his students and hop I think would sometimes come so I didn't really realize in those one or two times that I might have met rock that I did meet Rothbart. I didn't really realize what he was. I knew he was a libertarian. Professor and I had heard the term Austrian economics but I was still at that point very much in that sort of you know generic libertarian camp. I thought things like legalizing pot. That was still A. That was still edgy. Back then at taxpayer-funded stadiums are bullshit. You know that was. That was the sort of level. I love my libertarianism. And if you know we still find this today in other words. Libertarians who aren't rooted in economics generally bad libertarians and so thankfully thankfully. I found out through my friend Joe about the Austrian school inserted reading that heavier denser stuff which I'm now in retrospect glad to have have read but As far as Ron Goes Dr Paul just a few years earlier when he ran for president in one thousand nine eight I was just getting into undergraduate. I guess second you're an undergraduate. Maybe and so I went and saw him and back then of course you had to know that he was coming. He came to a little Ramada. OUGHTA in in Santa Ana California. Believe it's no longer Ramada in the building still there and so I think through my local Libertarian Group headed newsletter or something and I mean physical newsletter newsletter and I found out about him coming in I went and saw him. And that's where I met a couple people with whom I would stay in touch over the years. And so I have in a sense sense known ron for that long and then stayed in touch with him but My intention was was very much just to be a lawyer and I never imagined edge and I would be doing anything else with my life. I I got into mergers and acquisitions which is a very particular area of tax law. All the stuff dealing with buying and and selling companies which as you can imagine. There's a lot of complex tax structuring and a lot of cross-border international elements to this stuff. And so it gets very complex and as a result all especially from well a little bit in the nineties with Alan Greenspan and the early two thousands and then especially with Bernardi up until the crash really of two thousand seven The manet market really really went crazy in the United States will actually worldwide but especially in the United States and so oh it was a it was Lucrative at the time it was very easy to have a job you got a lot of calls from recruiters so it was good ee. No strictly from that perspective effective is a good place to be and So it was really just a call from a friend of mine who worked for Iran later on that sort of convinced me to end up working for him in his congressional office. And then through Ron Meeting Lou Rockwell not only coming to the institute so all of that is kind of a I guess a quick quick and dirty version of how I came to be sitting here where I am today in this room and Musa's institute. She's there's a lot of stuff that I could riff on but I WANNA on a pick out one in particular. You're kind of offhand remark. That people who are not rooted in economics tend to be bad libertarians. And here that I think some people in the audience here and that can't be right. You know economic system for everybody but there are very few exceptions to this rule. It turns out it's very strange range. I mean it and I think I have a theory as to why it is but when I think of people who are kind of squishy in their libertarianism. Or they're more interested in appearing appearing chic than they are and being really principled. Almost none of them are rooted in economics because economics. We were looking at private property and the Division of Labor and all these clear cut things that were if there's nothing mushy about it. There's nothing flighty about it. And it routes you in something. It's not that libertarianism is about alternative lifestyles I mean. Obviously Libertarianism says. You can't use violence against people because you disagree with their lifestyle. But that's not what fundamentally it is. It's fundamentally non-aggression peace and all these other things that I think flow naturally from economics but also I think about some of the people I have to deal with who are sniping keeping at me from the sidelines and almost none of them are in the Fed people. Almost none ever talk about the Fed. It's always the same three or four issues.

Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn And Dominic Grieve discussed on Coffee House Shots

"I'm joined by cables and James for safe while James. We're expecting a number of resignations this week. We've already on from Sarah Duncan which we will talk about shortly but yesterday Philip Hammond went on the mall showing confirmed that he was going to resign after Theresa May's final Prime Minister's questions he's jumping before he's pushed isn't he in the whiteboard in Boris Johnson's campaign and during the cabinet is it oh no we had Hammond down for John Throw now. He said he won't serve raises. A more serious points about how he has behaved. I mean there's a very difficult question to answer which is which is he was the chancellor when trees I said no deal is better than a bad deal. He was the chance to win all school. Fifty one votes injuries may kept saying that so it does raise a question about whether he was ever actually committed to the policy of a day of government element of which he was a member where he actually meant it. I also think he's behaving in a deeply irresponsible manner because it is quite clear that whatever you think of it Theresa May's with Griffin is not going to Paul sounds comments so you need to ease off rob some kind of concessional compromise to get this thing through and by what he's doing and the interviews he's giving in the European press on his shenanigans in parliament he is basically saying to you. You do is compromise or for any concession because parliament's elements can stop no deal but as rebel dominic grieve says the only way we see Sir stopping ideal is to bring down and it is not clear yet for they have the numbers so he is paradox the actually making no deal more likely I mean the question you need to think about which is which do you think is worse for the British economy in the short even in the short to medium-term. No deal oracle been government. I think it's a fairly strong case that it is a Corbin government. He's also making that more likely I e P regrettable about the way that moment is paving the moment and it is kind of hard not to think that he is goes into his head that he wants to go down in history for something and and he also is driven. I think bar a personal dislike of Boris Johnson I mean they all they are about as different as characters. Come be and I think there is kind of I think you see it's going to be this is undoubtedly going to be a problem for. I want someone Jeez people for them. How does more technocratic mind almost find offensive and so they feel bound by the normal ties of Lords obligation that people would find to a former cabinet according to become Prime Minister K._t.? Philip Hammond is joining the Google could score. Does it become nine on the back benches of <hes> Torian Dominic grieve like David Goal obviously who are very worried about the consequences of no deal exit. Do you think sees himself as being the ringleader of this new group and if not who else I think he seasons I was having a pivotal role play and certainly to people who are involved. Perhaps on various this what's up groups for being proactive and interesting have those speculation but world theresa may might play but that is not seen as a row where you have some really leading from the front at all you might be able to bring them in a backward way whereas I I think when it comes to Philip Hammond he is someone who's very happy to go and bat for it and you see that has multiple media appearances. I think when you look the with squad and is going to be a wide ranging faction in the sense that perhaps you have ron thirty figures who are sympathetic to the coors the coups being to prevent a no deal brexit but they will have different points of high father willing to go so you mentioned Dominic Grieve Dominic Grieve is in a very small number of the squad in the sense he is willing to vote down the government or at least he has said he is in a will to stop. No deal brexit happened has suggested he might be willing to do that. He hasn't said Faucheux but he could laugh will be in the more hardline element say the bulk of the awkward squad so whether <unk> actually property matters most in the day to day running of Boris Johnson's government before you get to what we think he might be that ultimate showdown but you might have a confidence vote is what can they team up on. Now figures like David Gook I think he uh of azan we expect for example Greg Clark. We don't expect him to resign anticipation but will likely not be in the Boris Johnson Cabinet and fluker join this great when it comes to confidence as its deputy FAA supply SA- cutting off supply seems to be a step too far when it comes to finances so the things that they can team up on would be when you look to what Ambrose described as an activist speaker Joe Becker and he saw that last week with their Perot Gang Amendment Dominic grieve came up with that is. Something people feel much more comfortable going for because it feels like a less drastic mechanism so I think that's where this team can come together and when you look within that you also have a Muharan reports you could as as soon as Boris Johnson is appointed as prime minister barring a big shock for you could have Torri M._p.'s defect to the Liberal Democrats. Now that's different element here. Those people here very pro second referendum the anti no deal shoe but it it goes well beyond and I would say the bulk of the Gook squad have voted for Brexit deal many times free times so there is one way for Boris Johnson to almost end his his problem there which is if he can get change if he can get a due to Vatan this group that the not so hard line in their ears majority that they're not gonNA vote for anything. Boris Johnson comes up with but they do need it to be a deal. I've been the Golden Association from those cases right and then which is if you are working. WE'VE DOMINIC GRIEVE STEVE DOMINATE GREAVES AIM is not to prevent no deal is to have a second referendum into how the U._K.. Remain in the European Union and I mean this is actually a real problem for some members of this group which is essentially when when you choose your political allies here it becomes your message risk getting lost. It risks looking what you're joining move dominant grieve in his attempt to stay in the E._U.. Raleigh than trying to prevent is leaving without a deal and that is going to be a major kind of questionable how his group coheres when varies of stress intention put on that will be put on it when a deal okay for example if a deal does come back do the same gamers and then just ingredients as well still vote against the deal because they want a second referendum and remain all always have as spent so arguing that no deal would would be catastrophic that they would feel obliged to vote for a deal. I mean I think this is their difficulties and contradictions within this group Katie. Tell us about Sir Allen Dunkin's resignation so remiss as of this morning the minister was going to resign today expecting the bulk as for Hamilton the anti nausea to as opposed to have the minimum amount of time between the new prime minister taking over and the being a vacancy in your department. Perhaps a vacancy theresa may try and fill it. It seems now we're getting to the shorter time may just be the vacant so Annan Dunkin decided not wait until Wednesday's. He has gone on Monday morning now. I think this is attracted. Criticism for a number of reasons fest off some have suggested. The Alan Duncan hasn't always been the principal character when it comes to the cools attached himself to sue people point to the referendum when he was in talks about joining the board and then in the end decided apparently because he cannot get a certain position by his name to go for remain and that's what people think he's insincere. I think there is a more practical note here which is it may not be specific brief but clearly what's happening right now. In Iran the crisis in the factories May as haven't have Cobra meetings to to be a Foreign Office minister. Dan Ready have one. He was suspended in field -Unding who's quite busy doing the leadership contest exactly the Foreign Secretary Hughes O._T.. Trying to walk away he is getting Steve if he doesn't have his upset tomorrow. It doesn't really paint this picture of government that is taking a situation completely serious. They and I think it was just absence. Idea which is very easy right now. I tried to haunt you paint the Tory party as warring factions when if you want to be the party of you would think that there is a sense that you need to look at your on top of this I thought it was quite interesting as we've seen Greg Hands Jeremy Hunt supporter today take to social media and and say that he does not support preemptive ramp to resignations and he thinks does play into the hands of Jeremy Kuban so I think it's just Boris Johnson supporters who questioning some of the time yeah we've had some comments from people like Hugh Merryman who's Philip Hammons P. P. S. on Westminster unstrap last night saying that the government basically dropped the ball on the Iran Crisis James. Is it the case that this is about how the government relates to trump will try not to relate to trump in closely. I read this government moment was as it so often has been on the trump. Administration was caught between two stools which is once the U._K.. Via Gibraltar had impounded that Iranian tanker it was point clear for there was going to be Iranian retaliatory action of some sort when you consider the soy's of the Royal Navy at the moment is quickly if British flag shipping wants to be protected against retaliation that was going to need to be active cooperation with the U._S. and what appears to have been the case is that there was a hesitancy about going down that route even though the Americans were suggesting it because they didn't want to look like they were signing up to the full gamut of U._S.. Close John Roberts obviously against the Iran nuclear deal which the U._K.. is in favor of home not having that this is a big strategic confusion on the government's behalf which is once you take a decision to impound that tanker then you had to act to protect your own shipping in the most comprehensive way possible and the seizure of his ship on Friday shows that the Royal Navy simply doesn't clearly is not adequate soy's to do that right now and F. was going to need assistance from the U._S.. Which is the largest navy in the world and so I've been there is there is a question here of of how this was handled and I think if it wasn't for the fact that was storage contest ongoing? This will be a big story. Also the other issue is the Jeremy Corbyn is not exactly Joe. Jeremy Corbyn is taking predictable approach which is everyone should deescalate. What why are we upset? Iranians in the first place approach of his question here I mean there is there is a I mean the government is very vulnerable. Were more focused right on time. which is you made the decision to impound the ship because he believed it was going to Syria and breaking sanctions? You've failed to Defend U._K.. Shipping why and finally we get the result of the LIB DEM leadership contest test the softening Katie expecting Jo Swinson to win or we or is it much closer than it appeared start the contest but I think when it comes to leadership contests mistakes ulcer in the Tory leadership is very hard for the polling often into Western. What is exactly going on is interesting difficult? Speaking to Redemption Bove's is the sense. I think that Jason is more likely to get this biting. The margin is going to be interesting to the case that perhaps it didn't mean every time you speak to lived M._p.. They will tell you how friendly the contest is and how they're absolutely delighted rather not at David J Simpson even basements in will say that should be delighted if adcose obviously has so it definitely has a slightly different dynamic when it comes to and clearly has got attention in the past few weeks while the Tour de contests has been on but it is good to be a very important decision you think about the fact that we could be having an election anytime seeing that he looked Lib. Dem's are in the polls. The EH leader in contrast to re Party is actually inheriting a very positive situation where the party has got to whether or not that's pretty Vince cable assets or luck intangibles having the party until about gay sex. Eh Eh we've got the media fakers which is going to be hard before these leaders than what happened Tim Farron and the general election so I think it would be a surprise of Jo. Swinson didn't get it but ultimately do you get the the sense that whatever happens is not going to be as big upset as tomorrow. If Jeremy Hunt Somehow wins James Davey and Jo Swinson do differ in terms of how they get what they want in a hung parliament scenario scenario you say at Davy for instance would vote for Jeremy Corbyn Queen's speech of a hard legislation for a second referendum in it. Jo Swinson is much less clear on that but it's very uneasy about since she doesn't think you can trust Jeremy Corbyn too so the outcome of this contest is really important isn't it. I was very struck by in your writer for a debate that you took part on quizzing the Swinson and Davey on Friday night of this difficulty for the still skull by coach of what they say and also how they position themselves on the one hand they want to say to remain voters. You can't trust Jeremy Corbyn an inch on the other hand they want to try and create this brewed remain alliance and suggests that they'll they'll do whatever they need to do to stop brexit. They're not worried about their own party. I mean but he's going to be attention. I mean one of the things about general election is but even if general elections before breakfast it won't be for solely on Brexit and it'll be a difficult question former Lib dem's which is the Lib Dem's pro remain position is trucks into them a certain kind of middle class prosperous demographic but are probably probably you but not pro all of the taxes that Jeremy Corbyn with I'd like to place on them and how Lib Dem's navigate that question what was going to unconvincing in your blog. You're saying they were saying oh we'd vote for the Queen speed for them. Vote Down the budget. I kind of that way so I think that as a kind of tricky question also fascinating question which is we'll talk a lot on this bogas about Boris Johnson the polls how him getting a poll bounce with affects things I think is also worth noting gene to see whether the Lib Dem's got any kind of bounce service extra not where they're going to get that much but there's extra coverage a Nudie will get because I think if you look at the decline and support Jeremy Corbyn among Labour members if a new more energetically dome and leader you live in homes Po position is maintained. If Labour's can all regularly coming second in the polls because Boris Johnson is brought back some voices from the BREXIT party.

What happens when landlords decide your apartment is a smart home (The 3:59, Ep. 530)

"Three fifty nine. I'm Ben Foxman. Joni Solomon, I'm outfitting along with smart homes. We're now seeing a growing trend of smart rentals. Alfred wrote about landlords fitting apartment units with internet connected locks thermostats and other sensors the problem is that some tenants don't actually want this technology and don't wanna feel like they're being monitored. So Alfred first question is there any recourse for renters? If all of a sudden, my apartment unit is going to be turned into a smart rental moving out that that is basically so because this technology is so new people really associated smart homes, like something you do for your own apartment or anything like that. They don't really see it as your landlord doing that for you. So there's no no one's like filed a lawsuit about this. And there's no laws protecting you from your landlord doing this to you currently because it's so new so right now, really the only thing you can tell your landlord as I don't want. This and hopefully, you're landlords that show person or you can move out. I think people that forcibly create smart, very Chelsea. So let's talk about it from the landlord perspective. Why do they want to spend, you know, hundreds of thousands of dollars to add this type of technology into their units? Is there like a benefit for them? Is there a potential benefit for tenants? Yeah. Definitely helpful for landlords. And not all tenants hate this. You know, they wanna be able to control their thermos all the reasons that you would want to smart home. There are a lot of people that have privacy and security concerns about it. But you know for landlords that means that they can monitor water and energy usage from their phones. They don't have to make a new key every time they can just like make new code for new tenants. Also, this is something that tenants actually sometimes actually want, and you know, they can charge higher rent or attract more people to to rent from them, if it's a smart home, and they don't have to do with themselves. So to me, this is an interesting aspect of smart, cities, smart cities is big concept that started many years ago and one of the primary concerns with smart cities is you can't opt out. So that kind. Sucks that if you don't like this technology, you're you're basically your option is to move out or whatever. Yeah. I think big differences though, is that with smart cities. It's not like in your house. Like, you you expect your house to be a place where where your private, and your landlord doesn't know like all this information about you like considering that it logs every time you use the code on your door. Or how often it's used? Basically means your landlord knows when you're in and out of your house like constantly, you know, there are laws that say that landlords have to give you twenty four hours notice before coming into your house, but with something like this. It's like, they're, you know, they've got a virtual presence in your in your home at all times next at the Tribeca film festival immersive program. This year creators are working to change up VR experiences. A little to focus more on interactive experiences junkie. Tell us a little about those. Yeah. So every year because retro galley and mixed reality are the main. Immersive storytelling formats today every year, and because they're developing so quickly every year out of like Joe Becker at Sundance, there's kind of new advancement. So what you can do. And it seems like this year people are really stressing heightened interactivity that. Hopefully, actually feels natural. And also location based entertainment what's known as LB or at which is something that you can't just do by putting on a headset in your living room. You have to go to a specific place usually pay for ticket price and getting experience that way, that's where you have things like live actors interacting with you. When you're in VR is the expectation that some of these ideas are actually going to push VR forward because from reading your story. It seems pretty clear that a lot of these creators understood that most folks really don't like sticking VR helmet on their face. Yeah. The fact that VR headsets haven't been as popular as the hype of the last couple years would have led some people to hope means that. That's the reason why people are really diving into LV. It's an idea where you know, Mersa theaters really popular thing going to arcades was a popular thing. The maybe that they can find a business model and format that finds an appeal since headsets haven't really gone mass. I get it. Just kind of like going to a concert at hokey mongo did for a are where like nobody cared about it on. So posing. Pokemon go at Tribeca film festival. Just allies. Yeah. It'll be extremely pop blast. And I know we don't have much time to get to this. Facebook Mark Zuckerberg said the future of communication is now in private an encrypted services. Like, what's up, this kind of doesn't jibe very well because it's Zuckerberg and soccer Burg been pushing everybody to share everything about themselves on Facebook. What do you guys think about those? I mean, log on here skeptics of his claims have basically argued that he's making this whole privacy push now. So that he can basically, consolidate what's up Instagram and Facebook messenger into one messaging up which he does lay out and his plan for privacy. But also, I think the writings been on the wall for awhile that, you know, not as many people wanna post on Facebook publicly anymore. A lot of younger people have flocked to platforms like Snapchat, where it doesn't last forever. Every privacy scandal. That's happened with Facebook in the last year. I think he knows that you know, people. Don't want their lives digitally like out in public like that anymore and preserved over so. Yeah. Yeah. But I again, like people have a right to be skeptical about his claims considering you know, this is the fortune that that Facebook built its empire on and now there art saying they're gonna turn turn against all of that. Well, I think that actually aren't saying they're gonna turn against all of that the way that he kind of message. It was that like, oh man privacy is the new black like this is what it's all about just crazy. But from what it seems like in follow up interviews. He's saying like, oh, no, no, no. The news still saying it'll still continue as it is. We're just going to focus on this also create like a dual duopoly universe in the Facebook world very bureaucratic diplomatic way of saying it anyway, we're way over on time. So thank you very much for listening to our super deluxe edition of the three fifty nine. If you want to read more from these stories checking them out on CNN, Ben FOX Rueben, I'm Joanie salsa.
