"I think the U. S GDP per capita six times or so greater than China household income household wealth is more important. These are the things that make a country great and it's it's I think a complete distraction to be looking just at the GDP number, which could be manufactured the short term but lead to serious long term problems. If if you do that, perhaps Leland at the same time, you see an increasing amount of foreign investment into China. People saying that the government will support theater Khanna me that will support asset prices going forward, and we'll continue to do so as they try to give the appearance at least Of faster than expected growth. Are you making an argument against those investments or perhaps against some of the enthusiasm that we're seeing someone on bridles from across the world? Not really. Because look, if you're if you're investing in China right now, you're doing it probably for two major reasons. The first is diversification purposes. You want to put more money into a growing economy. The second thing is, you look around the world and a lot of things looked really bad right now. China's had the top cove in recovery. And so there's a lot of reason to put to put more money into China. With all the opportunities there. I think we're people fall short in their analysis is they look at China and they said, Wow, there's his gross story. You've got 1.3 billion consumers. They must be buying a lot of things. There's gonna be this linear growth pattern, which let's just go in blind and you know, you could see right now. The consumption data There's a lot of problems with what's happening in China. Right now. It just happens to look a lot better than a lot of other places. Leland the other issue that we've seen this year has been the divergence in exports and imports We've seen Real increase in exports from China to the U. S. And around the world. Do you expect the stronger U N to really hamper that? I mean, how much do you expect that to become a headwind for the nation? I think Beijing's it a bit of a pickle. They've allowed the renminbi to appreciate this year because they don't have Much of a choice, with the trade surplus hitting record highs recently, but they don't want to see a skyrocketing want. What they want to do is they want to keep it relatively stable with a slight appreciation towards strength against the US dollar s O I think what they like, is just this beautiful stability, but because China's and more attractive destination right now because of the covert recovery being so Thing so well done. You know you've got these. You've got these real pressures, so they're not in a danger area right now, But I guarantee you it's causing a lot of sleepless nights thinking where this could go. If the U. S keeps going in the other direction, and they're forced to keep making this currency go up or face the political problems with not doing that. Beautiful stability. That's what we all want The great to catch up. Leland middle there of the China based book, almost 12 months on from cities across China, shutting down and Tom after, say, 12 months on from Davos, Switzerland, in the World Economic Forum and sitting there with a bunch of CEO singing come by our about a whole range of issues that had nothing to do.

Because i don't feel like it and like you don't have to be like the kind of girl who does this girl who doesn't do that you can you can keep your boundaries the same. But i find that my fluctuate and like being ok with is really valuable. Have that and i've never thought about that. Yeah how often do you see couples. This is again for me. Is that prevalent couple. Yeah many couples do only fans and it's like honestly great. Because the most money i ever make is with making content with someone else and it's hard like collaborating. Yeah so if you have that like organically in your brand already fantastic yes is there any legislation or advocacy groups that we should be aware of to help protect sex workers. Well i mean like i said i work for the oldest profession podcast. You should definitely go fall. yes podcasts. I started listening today. I make sure to try to give a lot of resources there. If you sign up for the newsletter you'll get resources about all that stuff from yours truly A lot of stuff is going through like legislation right now. There was just sia which was going to be really really bad. Sex workers it got it died but it might come back please. Contacts your representatives and tell them to repeal hoste earner act is another one. it's basically like festival also on steroids like even worse but it died. I believe it died in the house but again these things can easily come back so yeah just keep them on your radar and when they do get introduced just contact your representatives and be like now i find that it's best to like not even bring sex work into it when i call and be like. This is like unconstitutional and a violation of freedom of speech. Because i feel like that is more appealing to the legislators right because this is one progressive issue. That doesn't seem to have progressive congress people behind it representative ro khanna is introducing a bill to just do a study on sasa to show that like it's not effective and it's actually harmful because they haven't even done a study a case study on it and i think elizabeth warren is co-sponsoring. Erlich supporting it so keep an eye on that and be supportive of that. Yeah i mean with sex work being the oldest profession. you would think that there's data out there based on laws and other countries that we can see people who have done it. Well like like in the netherlands. You know yeah another. Its new zealand decriminalizing. It's going fucking great. There are countries who are doing it. That have figured out a way at without it becoming like a job for sex trafficking like you don't really need sex trafficking if there's like legit sex work happening. You know what. I mean right right and the sex trafficking. Statistics are definitely like exaggerated and blown proportion. I'm in no way saying that. It's not a problem Obviously very against people being forced into doing anything that they sign up for. Obviously but i did hear. And i forget what podcast it was on. It might have been even an npr podcast of somebody who had studied the issue At large and found that it was like the numbers and the data were were like highly exaggerated in the most cited statistics about the prevalence of sex trafficking actually lumped in so much consensual sex and sex workers word for the fact that essentially likes. Sit them in an interrogation room for hours until the ed quote unquote admit that it's trafficking when they're like no. It's not so yeah a lot of yet..

Biden Plans to Build a Grand Alliance to Counter China. It Won't Be Easy.

Biden Plans to Build a Grand Alliance to Counter China. It Won't Be Easy.

"Well, I think it's safe to say that the American Just the general American feeling towards The Chinese government and the way that the United States and China interact with each other has changed very dramatically over the last five years. Very, very dramatically As I think people have finally opened their eyes to Uh, just the business practices and the way Chinese, the Chinese Communist Party. Operates this quasi communist quasi capitalistic society. My question for the Biden administration is how are they going to Operate this because I don't think that they really deserve any benefit of the doubt here, based on how Obama interacted with the Chinese government and addressed some of these issues, largely, they didn't they spoke and try toe make issues here. But I think that's one of the big failings that we saw not only of the Obama administration but the Bush and Clinton administrations before that had similar issues. Um There is clearly public demand for additional action here. My question is, what is this next administration going to do? So what the Biden administration? The new stories that I've read is that the idea that they are going to try and build a grand alliance and basically team up with our allies, the United States allies to try and make a coordinated effort to come down on China and punish them or sort of enacting some sort of way to to weaken China, the Chinese strength. They have built up over time. However, the issue that they're going to find is that China Theater Khanna Me has grown to account for 18% of world GDP. The United States is approximately 25%. If you compare that to 20 years ago, the U. S accounted for about 30% of the world GDP and China was at 3%. So the gap has narrowed quite a bit and turning yourself off a country whether it's in Ah European country. To the market and just the amount of people there and the economy. There is easier said than done, so balancing this effort to go after them and in a you know, attack them in certain ways and try to hurt them with tariffs or whatever it may be, is going to be a balancing act for a lot of economies out there A lot of countries out there The Wall Street Journal article that we are doing some quoting from describes what they call an economic escape hatch, and I think that's an accurate description here. The Chinese economy Built itself on selling products to many nations. But United States their biggest consumer country in the world, bought a lot of this stuff and brought to this their population into the middle class in a lot of ways. Um When we finally address them about some of the issues they looked at and said, Okay, well, we could change or we could just use our escape hatch and do the same thing. But with every other country in the world that is willing to Yeah, take in our labor or get access to our markets. For us to take advantage and rip off technology is they've done time and time again, And I think that has been the one area where we have voiced concern about the trump policy here is hate. If we go it alone. It's not going to be successful because if the Chinese want they can just pivot to dealing with Europe, which they have go look at. You know they're five G technology and what they've rolled out across parts of Europe in Africa, and so I think that next step of keeping the pressure on But bringing our allies into the negotiations is going to be important and exceedingly difficult. But I think the first important pieces keeping the pressure on here because without it we have seen far too many times. What the Chinese leadership does They just make promises until they're you know, until you're Skin turns blue until they can't breathe anymore and then betray those promises. Years later, when the same people aren't in charge anymore. Quick break

Alex Padilla to become California's first Latino senator, replacing Harris

Alex Padilla to become California's first Latino senator, replacing Harris

"Going. Secretary Alex Padilla now heads to Washington, D C. To replace Vice President elect Kamila Harris and become California's first Latino senator. Questions still remain over how Padilla will be received in D. C. And for more, we turn now to the KCBS Ring Central news Line and talk with Christopher. Cattle. Lago National political reporter at Political Good to have you with us, Christopher Nice to be here. Thank you. So, how much pressure do you think the governor was under to appoint a Latino to replace Kamila Harris? I think he was under huge pressure. Just generally. He he was replacing a multiracial woman, and Kamila Harris, a black woman. And there was a lot of groups out there who felt that not only should he replace Harris with a woman but a black woman in particular because she was the only black woman in the U. S Senate, and that number will not go from 1 to 0. But there was also tremendous pressure. Even before Harris ran, you'll remember in 20. 15 when she started her campaign to replace Barbara Boxer for the state to elect its first Latino senator, Um, back then, there were calls for folks like former L. A Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to run even the happier for Sarah, who by now nominated to be the Health and human services director to potentially run Kevin De Leone ended up running against Dianne Feinstein and 2018 and lost in the other Senate seat. So there was a lot of competing pressure for Gavin Newsom and what we saw yesterday. Clearly there was no accident in him almost packaging these two Thies two appointments together, which you saw for the U. S. Senate and Alex Padilla and then surely Weber. To replace Padilla as secretary of state, a state wide position. Surely Weber is chair of the Black caucus in the state and also Was a long time professor PhD from San Diego State who's done a lot of focus on police reform another racial justice issues in the state, so You know, do some. I know people talk for weeks and weeks about appointing Padilla. He was He was kind of the obvious pick someone who is allied with new some years ago, but he waited clearly so he could make these two um, appointments in tandem s so that people could see kind of the full context of both of them and not just look at one of the other. What? What about the comments from San Francisco Mayor London Braid. Initially she called this a real blow to the African American community. You think she was angry at video? She angry Governor Newsome. Yeah. Both. I think she speaks for folks both in the state and nationally who Who really did genuinely want to see that seat. Uh um, uh, C representation. Um, of Ah, Black woman like common. Harris continue in that Senate seat. There. Also a lot of people as I mentioned who wanted to see a woman in that seat. Um and I think She? It's complex. She does reflect some of the groups out there some of the people out there even some of the people who are praising kind of the tandem. Nature of these pics were disappointed, maybe not in such sharp terms of London Bridge, But groups and other folks out there were disappointed that Newsome did not appoint a black woman to serve in the Senate. Well, this all got announced and Harris is term expires in two years, and Padilla has already launched a Senate campaign account asking for donations. So it appears that He wants to stick around for a while, and he's already raising money. Yeah, The thing that we know about the Senate races these days and really any races, you have to capitalize on the 1st 2024 hours 48 hours first week when people are paying attention, the senior name in the news These races in California don't typically command a kind of TV time. And so he's trying to get a raise as much money as you can. And in the short period, the short window where folks are really tuning in. And we've seen comments. And I know you didn't mention this but from folks like Ro Khanna Progressive, who was the national co chaired for Bernie Sanders, who are expressing disappointment, not not in, uh in the in Padilla. On the fact that he's a Latino, which they celebrate, but in the fact that they think that his politics or to moderate and that's just that he's got to raise a lot of money because he could he could certainly face eh Progressive challenger in two years in the state, and you know he'll only have two years to really make his mark and get his name out there before before his challenge.

"khanna" Discussed on It's All Political

"Were an intellectual property attorney And you oppose doing this. And i wanted to hear it. Once you to explain to people why you oppose that. But also why shouldn't twitter and facebook be regulated like media companies like cbs or nbc. Or the san francisco chronicle the new york times. I think that they should be regulated. More than they are regulated now. But it's not analogous to the san francisco chronicle and the san francisco chronicle when they published a letter to the editor and op ed. They may get a five hundred thousand. Submissions from people like me and they have to make a determination of but they don't have a billion post sur five hundred million posts that they have to go through so you can't have the same standard of for social media companies. That said i do think there should be some standards. I think if they is a post legally that is inciting violence under the brand per standard. That post should be removed and We should have a reform of or lease discuss sensible reforms to section two thirty then talk call for removing content. That is inciting violence. The other thing i will say is absent. The regulations certainly facebook and twitter and social media need to have more accountability for their content. I mean if the san francisco chronicle tomorrow published an op. Ed by by someone in the ku klux klan. You could argue that. The san francisco chronicle would have a first amendment right to do that. You could argue that. It may not violate any laws but probably there would be outraged at the san francisco chronicle if they did that when facebook does it. You can't just say well it's the first amendment. We'll find maybe legally have the right to do that. But what message are you sending about your company and your company's values to the world. So i think there needs for regulatory reform but there's also a need for them to have some sense of ethical standards like there is in the media with the president's talking about the has new maybe get rid of section two thirty and you hold them liable for everything then basically what will happen on these social media platforms will be talking about our kids in our dog's fine. Maybe that's what people want. I think that's way too much of a restriction on speech. Okay and real quick on the covid relief bills before congress. It's very much moving target. You're very much adamant. Americans should get direct payments out of explain a little bit more about how that would work and when one of the possibilities of that happening i it was. We'll get some of the data on. Ppp the previous program. The top one percent of loan recipients got twenty five percent of that funding. There were six hundred companies. They got ten million dollars in loans or more and the average job that it costs taxpayers to save under. Ppp was about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. It only ended up having an impact about two percent in companies that got those loans in terms of saving those jobs so it was just highly inefficient. I think yes. Let's have p p restaurants and real mom and pop shops but the bulk of the money should either be direct checks to americans or in massive expansion of unemployment insurance. We know that seventy three percent of the money that went in unemployment insurance was actually directly spent and enter the economic study showed. That's what really helps small business yet. People with these checks spending the those checks so yes. It's a matter of fairness but it's also a matter of economic efficiency that the best way to help create jobs and help people is to give them money and lasts before. I let you go speaker. Pelosi has been coy about whether this will be her last term as speaker you you know her a bit you think. She will run for speaker again. Provide democrats win the house. I would be surprised that she has said that. It was a two-term commitment. I think she made when last term when she she did it. I mean anything is possible. But i think it would be surprising if she goes beyond two terms as speaker now. She may stay in congress. And the great advocate for san francisco. Do you think she would stay in congress or do you think she would call it quits after that. I don't know you know she. She loves being in congress. I love san francisco. She loves representing the area. And she's in it for public service. So i i do believe her when she says it's calling and i don't think she cares about the title or the accoutrements power. She's had all of that. So i i don't know i think it depends on how much a she thinks he can still be. Effective carson ro khanna. Thanks for being back on its political. Hopefully we will see you in real life and not just on zoom in near future and good luck. Okay thank you okay.

Must Have Shrubs With Ken Druse

"This time to try to narrow down our list of must have shrubs to the real standouts and tell us why i can margaret. I know you'll never get it to three. It's funny you said that because when we first started talking about it you said one and both of us that we can't pick one. Can we even pick three right So which of your books. We always give copy of what looks only talk on the show at with the transcript of the show. What do you think i mean. Is this one for shade gardeners this one for. What's this one for a cheat garden shade garden would be a good a good one. That's always a huge hit so good good. Good good So we're at you. And i in our lives are at what a another expert friend says is the shrub season of our lives which is sort of rather than crawling around dealing with lots of fussy high maintenance perennials. It's kinda great to have some big fillers like mature shrubs to do a lot of showing off and yet not ask a lot of us. So where do we begin. What's a shroud. i guess. Well a strobe is a multi stemmed plant of woody plant and i guess that's sort of describes a tree would have one trunk one stem herbaceous plants die down to the ground soft tissues and shrub is a woody plant. That is bushy bush. I don't like that word for describing his trip but it's rub can be bushy. Okay okay and we should say before we start naming our desert island trump's that we didn't include khanna first because really that can that's a whole other conversation So many shapes and colors and textures among those so Do you remember your first. Trump been is still there and is it a favourite or it didn't make the list. Well i get. I get to pick three right okay. You want me to tell you. My first well you said conifers. And i'm not going to talk about converse but my one of my favorites shrubs is. Evergreen is a what is called a broad lead evergreen and it's a bucks it's a kind of boxwood. I have too many of them. And it's a box with semper barons. Graham blondie yes and it is one of the most colome ner plants i've ever seen really but It's a shrub and it's minor. There's probably i have some. That are like seven feet tall and fifteen inches. Wanted if you can imagine that. They're they're like punctuation marks. You know they're like exclamation marks in the garden. And as i said. I have too many because when i first got i always wanted them and then a nursery not too far from here a lot of them. Nobody bought them and the price kept going lower and lower and lower. I think i have made. I may have twentieth them when they were eight dollars a piece. Wow that's a lot of exclamations. A long time. I know and i i also keep moving them. I just moved three boy Son they want son you know. I'm sure they would love son. But i have all my box with. I don't have any full sun. But i have some of my boxwoods in quite a bit of shade and they stay calendar. Sometimes i tie them up because the snow might split them a little bit or you know splayed them. They don't break. But i do. I do tai the ones that are floppy up for the winter. And i love it if you says boxwood called graham. Landy columbia okay. I don't actually have any evergreen things at all on my list whether broadleaf or coniferous And i was thinking when we started this conversation today on the phone that my first trump passion was the genus vibe burnham. In back in the day we had a lot of divi burnham's like the double file and so forth that turned out to be kind of invasive and a lot of areas of the country. So i don't grow those anymore. But lately i've been cultivating more and more native ones like the maple leaf a full liam then tatum the arrow would and so forth So that was kind of where my shrub journey began. But the thing. I have the most of you said you have a lot of grand. Blondie is winter. Barry holly speaking of things. And i don't know what came over me. I mean it was the birds that came over me early on here in this rural place having been grown up in the city. You know coming here meeting all the birds and knowing that learning that they liked some of them liked fruit and that the native hollies were one of the ways to fuel the migration in the wintertime. And i planted about forty five or fifty of them in three very large groups in different directions toward the perimeter of the property but in different directions where i can see them from key windows in the house at a distance in the winter and all different varieties and Big ones small ones. I got a lot of fruit and birds a like very much. And yeah so waxwings and robins like in you know hunt flocks at one hundred or whatever at a time will come in right around now november ish and again to pick over at At the first snowfall and so forth and they'll strip them all pretty early on but one trick with winterbourne. Hollies if you want some that will last longer for your visual interest. The non red varieties they. The birds leave them longer. They're not as interested in them. So many yellowish orange ones and so the lighter colored ones and the winter

All evidence points to the Big Ten being the best league in America for a second straight season

"Today, turn our attention to the big ten where I have Iowa winning the regular season title while Norlander has pegged Illinois as the. Favourite and Wisconsin to finish second. So let's start there. Norrland explain to me why you're being totally disrespectful the frame McCaffrey to Luca Garza to this public research university that was founded in eighteen forty seven at CBS sports me Jerry Paul David all have Iowa in the top two but you and strong JAL cow bone have Iowa third in the big ten. Explain Yourself. This is gene wilders Al-Matar we're talking about for crying out loud. Oh, there we go. Something tells them you've been snooping around the Iowa wikipedia page. That's where I get all my goodland ACM forty, seven trivia gets on. What's the oldest institution in the Big Ten? Let's let's what do we think it is big ten rules. What's two oldest one founded first? What's our guest founded? I I'm running through right now I'm going to say it's Penn State Penn. State's your guests I'm going to go. I'M GONNA go man is a tough one I'm going to say. That's a good one. I'M GONNA say Michigan I'M GONNA Michigan sealed list no idea by the way no idea someone chips someone pleads tweet us and let us know I don't know when the oldest we could. Actually we could go and look through all the wikipedia pages in real time here. But let's let's make a fun quick podcast here you want to know why I have. Iowa. Third I'll let you WanNa know what that's what I want. That's what you want to I'll let you know that I talked with Sam visine yesterday good old Sam. Who May who may appear on this podcast remember never know it's always out there. He actually asked me where I have Iowa in my one, two, three, fifty seven and I said, well, I'm GonNa have them in the top ten but I'm actually going to have them behind. Illinois in Wisconsin. He goes. You're absolutely right and I don't know how many people are gonNA. Agree with you. But I'm with you hundred percent and the reason why is this this team has the preseason national player of the year and Luca Garza it's got a great talent and Joe Camp. Jordan bohannon terrific Khanna McCaffrey. Great. But defensively, there's enough there that are not there that I'm going to. Just sell a bit on a twenty eleven team from last season ninety, seven defensive efficiency at Ken Palm. I like Wisconsin's overall team just a smidge better smidge and I do like Illinois I think he's GonNa be the best team in the big ten. So I love that we have we need some more genuine disagreement on the podcast here I've got Illinois definitely as the as the best team in the big ten and then Wisconsin and then Iowa. But in the Grand Scheme of the sport, I, think those are three of the ten best teams in college basketball. We agree on that have Iowa fifth in the top twenty five in one. Illinois six and Wisconsin Tint So. You know. We're all in the same ballpark and I do think you can reasonably despite. My anger at the top of the podcast I do think you can reasonably have those three teams in. Any order as for Iowa. Five players last season start at least twenty games all five or back plus they get Jordan Bohannon Beck, they finish twenty third at. Kim. Tom. But they were 97th in defense of efficiency and quite clearly if you're trying to look for a reason why Iowa isn't actually going to break through and make the final four for the first time since nineteen eighty. Where you start is on the defensive side of the ball ninety seven defensive efficiency. It's hard to be great when you are that bad on the defensive end of the court,

"khanna" Discussed on 5-4

"Right, it's Congressman Ro Khanna. Thanks for joining US man three on. Yes. Thank you for being here. We do this podcast with the broad goal of critiquing the court from a left progressive perspective and sort of demystifying the court and its role in society, and we view the court as it's currently composed as a very ideologically conservative institution right so we were pleasantly surprised to see calls for reform coming from the halls of Congress. Yes. You proposed an eighteen year term limit on future Supreme Court justices. So first things I want you to tell us a little bit about the bill, what it says and what you're hoping to accomplish with it appear thanks for having me. Our framers never intended people to be on the court for thirty or forty years of what we currently have is a previous generation making laws for a contemporary generation. It's actually quite anti-democratic. The framers intent when they said people should be there for life was an assumption that people would go on the court at the end of their careers for five years ten years as sort of a capstone to their service, not that there would be gaming in terms of getting people on at a very young age so that. They could have a long tenure. The constitution says that a judge has to be there for life so that you don't have the whims of politics influencing them but the constitution nowhere says that a judge has to be on the Supreme Court for life. So what our bill says is that a judge can be a justice for eighteen years after they're done their service, they can then go onto a circuit court or lower court and continue to be a judge. They just don't have to continue on the Supreme Court. In every president would get to appointments in their term. So you wouldn't have this oddity where some presidents get zero appointments and other presidents get three appointments and you wouldn't have national drama every time we have a Supreme Court vacancy the idea is actually not to be partisan it's just common sense and to restore the court to what its original purpose was right and so i WanNa talk about the constitutionality of it just a little bit at Lee. So the constitution says that they shall hold their offices during good. Behavior, meaning essentially for life I think when you read that, it seems to imply a single office. I imagine that your argument is that because the bill applies only future justices, the term their office is a little more flexible than that right that it could mean something that involves them stepping down to a lower court at a given time we don't have to get into the details of the constitutionality, but there is sort of attention here because despite to get five votes at the Supreme, court right it might be seven. And I guess my question is, is there a real concern in your mind that five justices of the Supreme Court just strike this down? There is a concern of course about what the court would do your point about the office. One other option is that you could have someone senior on the Supreme Court not be able to actually adjudicate on the Supreme Court decisions. But from senior status, get to choose what circuit court they want to sit on their ways of framing this. In my view pass constitutional muster. Now John Roberts, the chief justice in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three actually came out for term limits in here's my view I..

Amy Coney Barrett 'to be picked by Trump for Supreme Court'

"Donald Trump will be announcing his supreme court pick on. Saturday which means that he already knows that the individualism according to sources close to Donald trump his selection will be judge Amy Coney Barrett Their York Times makes a point to mention that she would be the least experienced supreme court nominee however she is a favorite among conservative politicians and conservative voters because of her Christian background but also more importantly and I think this gets left out in a lot of the analysis in the media. She also would immediately invalidate the affordable care act she's on the record. Saying that whereas you know the thing that people seem to be more focused on right now is Roe v Wade which you know obviously I don't WanNa be naive and just assume that she won't touch Roe v Wade but she is on the record saying that she believes in the precedent when it comes to reproductive rights even though she as a devout Catholic disagrees with abortion and all of that but Emma I wanted to get your thoughts. We're talking about this a little bit during the break talk a little bit about what this means for the affordable care, act? Certainly. So that's my concern too. I mean we're both women. We obviously have concerns about our reproductive health but I think there is a hesitance in terms of justices overturning that precedent because of the ripple effects and how massive and that it would be I feel like it's just more of a political talking point for Conservative politicians to score points than it is a judicial reality. That's the only thing saving us here. What should concern everybody is that she's forty eight years old she has a history of pro-corporate positions that side with the with the employer against employee etc I believe and she's sided against. I'm reading some of it here. Things in gun rights she descended in a decision that would disarm felons for example, after they came out of prison, she's pretty extreme when it comes to those issues but for the affordable care. Act's guys if it's six to three if she gets through and it's that solidly conservative, they're going to do away with the affordable care act and then that's a conservative basically supermajority for decades at that point say ideally, we got the Progressive President in twenty twenty four who wants to put Medicare for all through. That's dumb. That's what concerns me most about these decisions are yes. The Supreme Court's been pro-corporate for a very long time for the Romney says, we're a center right country and the courts been leftist for awhile talk to him about Bush. Gore in citizens united whatever. But but but yeah, that's what scares me the most about. This is the complete mixing of any legislation that comes through that could be progressive. That's appealed Conservatives Appeal Appeal Appeal go the Supreme Court and they know. It's just going to be overturned. INCORPORATIONS can have a field day in big Pharma will be doing great. Yeah I am definitely worried about this. You know representative Ro. Khanna introduced a bill that would limit the. Time Supreme Court justice could serve on the Supreme Court to eighteen years. I don't know where that piece of legislation is GonNa go but I I do think that it's important that you mentioned her age as you just did and how. Her influence on the court will have a lasting ramifications on on this country really and yeah, the pro-corporate angle is something that just seems to get lost in the fray lost in the analysis and I'm glad that we're talking about it in a story that will cover later donald trump signed more ridiculous phony executive orders alleging that he's protecting people with preexisting conditions. The truth is those executive orders constitutionally speaking have no teeth but what it does is it messages to his voters that don't worry don't don't be frightened of the repeal of the affordable care act because signed executive orders. They're not going to do anything, but you know it's just enough to cover his ass while also simultaneously causing great harm to honestly all Americans because anything could be considered a pre existing condition. If you tested positive for cove it, that's considered a pre existing condition. So this is going to have. A damaging effect on so many people in this country I wanna read a quote from from this piece in the New, York? Times it's by Aaron. Who's president for the old Alliance for Justice a liberal group. She says, Amy Coney Barrett Meets Donald Trump's to litmus tests. She has made clear that she would invalidate the affordable care act and take healthcare away for millions of people and undermine. A woman's reproductive freedom. Again, I'm not entirely sure that the Supreme Court would overturn Roe V. Wade I know that there's a lot of fear about that. I understand that fear a lot of my fear again has to do with You know corporate shoes that make it to the Supreme Court and what is very likely to happen to the affordable care act at this point and remember the Supreme Court did strike. The healthcare mandate, that's an important part of the affordable care act. That's what kept premiums low, and you know when they undid that, of course, premiums immediately shot up and so we'll see how this all plays out, but it is pretty terrifying.

"Of Santa Clara County. Which is in the congressman's district? I Major Garrett takeout and watching it lets the other side of the break from CBS News. This is the takeout with Major Garrett. Welcome back to be with you. Great to be seen on. Cbs and to be heard on podcast platforms on great radio stations around the country or part of the takeout podcast triple platform networks something. We are very very proud of Roe. Conn our special guest Democratic Congressman Seventeenth District of California within that district two big counties Alameda and Santa Clara but Santa Clara Congressman. You and your own words to explain it to. Our audience stands out as a place in which a local public health official made a call earlier. I believe than any other in America on covert nineteen. Take it from there a major. I appreciate your listening to her story. And you're being one of the first people to recognize that. Dr Is an incredible a hero in this country. She had the judgment first of all in January to stand up in emergency. Santer in our county. When few people thought that Kobe was going to get to the place that it has and then in early March she made a decision to stop having gatherings of more than thirty five more than fifty people. That was a very hard decision because this was before people were taking it seriously and she was saying. You can't have weddings. You can't have a party. There was a lot of pushback of but she has been a good fortune. And good judgement of listening to leading epidemiologist said Stanford at Santa Clara. And they were telling her every half day that you delay is going to be exponential growth. And then she made the decision to have a shelter in place on March sixteenth and got six other bay area counties to agree with that They had a sense of getting all of the local elected officials to agree and the former head of the. Cdc said that if New York had done what? Dr Cody did. There would have been eighty percent fewer deaths and and the reason she such a important figure to understand is it shows the importance of how to build a culture of listening to find out. Just your dot. And this was a largely leadership and that Set in motion around those counties and then all the way to Sacramento Governor newsom and others followed soup correct and governor near. Someone's ahead of any other governor. He was four days. Afterwards in that led to because these things are exponential that led to is some a spread but he was a much more decisive than other countries in. This is not the point. The finger of blame. I think by and large governors have done an incredible job. It's simply say a that in these types of cases are got. Our intuition is often not correct. I mean my intuition was incorrect. When we were forty fifty cases in this country that suddenly we could be crossing a hundred thousand but the medical experts. The people who had studied these diseases they knew in the question for us. The country's how do we build a culture that allows for scientific expertise to inform decision making and not just dot? And how do you think California is right now? And what is your level of anxiety as it like so. Many other states begins to reopen while. I'm anxious I mean. I think that again they bay area is making the right decision. And Dr Cody bike extending or a stay at home orders. But I think it's Remains to be seen how the opening takes place. It's a very difficult call for people like governor newsom because our economy like every other place has been devastated. I mean we've been hit. My district has been hit. We've got small businesses day. I get twenty thirty email requests. Were going under. What can you do? Retail has been hit. Restaurants have been hint. A independent contractors have been hit. A some people are suffering and our state is going to be in a huge deficit. If we don't get more federal money that means education could be cut us. We have to figure out a way to open responsibly Without putting people at risk in the real solution to this is the testing. And that's why some of us have been so frustrated. That's what Senator Sanders tonight proposed. Bill seventy five billion dollars going to give the President. Go Bill Masks build basic equipment? Get get this country of ready. One point I mean market recently Leans Conservative brilliant entrepreneur starting netscape and he had this op Ed in the Wall Street Journal that I recommend everyone re it's any size. I get that the United States are to build a wet dexing. I get that. It's hard to build antivirals unmasks. How can we not the greatest economy the history of the world? How can we produce enough masks? How can we not produce allows sanitizers? I mean these are things that we should do and be able to. I want to bring a voice that you might be familiar with Craig fugate. We talked to him on this program three weeks ago. He was the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency FOR THE ENTIRE OBAMA PRESIDENCY. And he talked about something that he detected happening in. California and like minded parts of Washington state. I WANNA play that sound for you and you get your reaction one of the interesting things I saw because I do some work on the west coast was how in San Francisco in the valley that up in Seattle big tech companies cancelled conferences. Very soon after it was realized it was spreading at conferences and then they began moving towards work from home. Well before they're actually any stay at home owners now in your district. If I understand correctly are yahoo apple and Intel among others and is this thing that Craig fugate is talking about a reflection of the Santa Clara decision and that six county additional. Six County decision about taking the serious earlier than others absolutely. He's absolutely right and it might just hurt also goal and Tesanjka all. Were actually even ahead of Dr Cody. Things with techies. As you know. One of the lines is that they. They consider their body their temple and people like Tim. Cook out working out than they really health conscious and some of them. Are you know? Real health nut dates of this exceedingly seriously Very early on a venture. Capitalists Close These companies cancel a conferences. Had people go a work from home now? I think your point early on is very important. That's quite privileged because there are a lot of people who don't have the work for home option you know. I read somewhere that less than twenty percent of African Americans in less than twenty percent. The next community actually can work from home because they're in these jobs that are It requires his the Labor. Get the groceries that you and I are are having so I think it's two points one is what can we learn from the tech community's response in terms of listening to data but to What do we have to do as a country to overcome this extraordinary? Divide between those who are capable of working from home remotely In those who are not and This crisis while it's affected everyone has affected everyone equally. It's been disproportionately borne by a minority communities and essential workers. It's an it's an enormous topic. I don't expect you to have a unified five point answer. But what are your thoughts on addressing that because not only is this a matter of inequality in terms of risk and availability of labor. Meaning do you have a job where this is even practical answer? No which means you have to work second of all. We have found that for reasons that are believed still allude many scientists. There's a higher susceptibility in certain minority. Populations are these two things linked or are they just reinforcing? And how do we address that? I'll major I mean think people will write books on on that topic but here are some of my initial thoughts. I for all of the talk of a digital age in the robots are coming. I think this is a sober. Reminder of how much were dependent on physical labor and we still lead people drive the trucks. We still need people at the warehouses. We still need. People who pick up the trash can only go to the hospitals. They're over sixty million people were essential in are still working and this is something that I've been aware of in Silicon Valley because these workers janitors food service workers the bus drivers. They've been saying people don't notice us but we're the glue that keeps the economy going. They've been saying that for a decade later finally being noticed Someone said well. I'm glad you finally see central you know. Is this thing in the last couple months or you really GonNa think that this is essential so I think i. It's just a shift in our perspective all Afars about The dignity and the value that these folks provide and not the sense that. Oh somehow everyone's GonNa go code where everyone's GonNa go do remote work in if we do realize that were so dependent on these workers. How do we make sure that they're protected? How do we make sure that they have basic hazard pay? I mean think about this. I mean of you doing the same exact job after Kobe than before. Komen but now they have risk to themselves and their family. The market says that they should be paid more. I mean wh that's obvious. And we make sure they get paid more. How do we make sure they get certain childcare provision? I think that this country needs to have a that conversation about the dignity of of work and labor it at and hopefully it's not just a short term memory in this crisis right and oftentimes. The phrase applies to higher minimum wage as a living wage. If I hear you correctly you're saying living slash protective wage. Exactly that I'm living wage. It's a protective wage and say it's a way to recognize. It's their healthcare. They're they're childcare. But at the very least to protect them right and it's not. You can't just blame Amazon. Though the reason I say this is good. I'm getting the packages I know. If you get back we get packages right. So we're all beneficiaries. It's not just the Amazon stockholders. The point is we're all beneficiaries of this system and their own literally going to the warehouses so that we can get our packages and they're being stats hat in some cases like sardines. They don't have basic equipment. They don't have a basic social distancing. Some some here's my point. Look we can fight about whether they should get healthcare in a living wage people our. Oh you're just a California progressive but is there any American who doesn't think they should have basic safety that if they're in doing things so the rest of us go about our lives that they are entitled to Basic Sanitation and safety? I feel like that should be something. We can all agree on voice of Ro Khanna and the answer to the questions still.

Three or four weeks running the week's round together folks you know what an I know. I'll take out radio network. It's great great to have you with us all over the country. More than seventy radio stations. Some of the biggest markets in the country. We thank you for finding us here and of course our earliest adopters on all the great podcast platforms. Great to have you with us as I mentioned working at home. This is sort of my little teeny sermon. It those of us who are working at home or doing so on behalf of others if you are not working from home if you are essential meeting healthcare meaning a part of the food supply meaning a first responder meaning someone who stocking shelves keep at it. We are grateful. We are thankful for the work you are doing and the rest of us will do our part to make sure we stay on top or at least make sure the Kobe. Nineteenth situation grows no worse. Great to have you with us. Row Khanna as a congressman from the Seventeenth District Home State of California Democrat. He is our special guest. We had him on the show quite a while ago. But there's a lot of things to talk about now in which he is centrally involved. We'll get to his district in a second because a good part of it is Santa Clara County and there is an amazing story about a public health official in Santa Clara County and Kobe. One thousand nine that I want you to listen to. We'll get to that in a second. But there are a couple of things congressman first of all great to talk to you. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having a back on your podcast. Grown A lot. That was one of the early gas. The and I'd say congratulations on all your success. Thank you so much couple of things I want to talk to you about. Because among the things you do in the House of Representatives you are on the House Oversight Committee matter of fact your on the subcommittee on government operations so a story that appeared in the Washington Post very recently. I think you have some knowledge of it. Talks about a complaint filed with the oversight committee from someone who was a volunteer on a Ad Hoc Committee organized by Jared Kushner within the trump White House to organize or if not organized help organizers. Speed up the collection of distribution of personal protective equipment and that complaint according to The Washington Post and. I WANNA get your verification of that. If possible says this this Ad Hoc Group? Volunteers was inexperienced. It favored what it called very important people. Vip who reported to the White House in some capacity or another kind of bungled the personal protective equipment operation. What do you know well? Here's what we know. This administration has had absolutely no regard for expertise and a lot of the agencies that were supposed to respond to this. Were under staff or their budget slash for example. Fema I mean FEMA was the agency that could have set up mobile testing sites across the country. Dating had the budgets dating didn't have keep the. Hhs The key agency. They didn't have key personnel so because they didn't have a lot of people in place because they didn't have a culture of relying on experts. They went out and got a lot of these volunteers but the volunteers even two issues i. They didn't have the competence right. I mean it's very complicated to understand. Why P P isn't coming hospitals? Let me give you a a very clear example. A The many people don't know that hospitals have to prepay for the and one of the reasons that they aren't being able to get the PCP is they weren't being willing to prepay for shipments coming from overseas. Well that's something that I didn't know until sort of a month into it for looking to healthcare experts. My guess is an ordinary person. Even if they're really smart but someone who's an expert would and I think what this complaint highlighted is that they were relying on volunteers and then they were relying on volunteers. Who HAPPENED TO BE FRIENDS OF THEIRS? Who could have been political supporters So it just wasn't the best management to get the job. Have you seen the complaint? I have not We we've I'm aware of it We have a hearing that supposed to come up later next week. And it's something that chair a Maloney is Going to pursue and based on the reporting in the Washington Post. Is that what you understand? The complaint contains the assessment and necessary a complaint but an awareness that this ad hoc group wasn't up to the job and there are still falling behind at the administration level. Yes that's my understanding and concern about who was getting asked to provide. Help lead these efforts. And whether those people were getting political favoritism now look. It may not have been a improper in in in the sense that okay. You're going to people you know. Those people could be political orders. The broader issues. So why is it that we didn't have these agency staff? Why is it that these agencies have been gutted? Why are we not relying people were experts? I mean I wouldn't say okay. Let's do Santa Clara County in my district based on all my friends and political supporters. And let's go to them for advice and crop plan. I mean even if they were well intention the point is they. There's something to defer to expertise and that's what's been missing. It said in the story that some of these volunteers didn't have any idea how or had very little comprehension of Customs Regulations Food and Drug Administration. Rules you talked about hospitals prepaying. It seems to me that there was. This complaint is accurate. Maybe just a natural barrier of information about what needed to be done and the kind of questions that needed to be asked and answered before. You're trying to put something this massive in motion absolutely. And you know the People Mackenzie rather these consultants. I mean they're very talented people but they don't have. It takes often months for them to study industry to get up to speed to understand all the nuances and what seems problematic. Year is that that wasn't done. Let me give you another concrete example people tell you about the testing bottleneck will the testing bottleneck is not major is because we don't have the equipment that Abbott needs. We don't have the swamps we don't have the actual manufacturing we if you talked to. Cvs WALMART A. They don't have cloudy on how they would be reimbursed. And they don't have clarity on. Who could for the tests that in their mobile sites itself allow? These are very complex issues. That weren't resolved and they weren't resolved in my view because the right experts really understood. This haven't been brought. Can't let me ask you about another story that appeared in political politico very recently talks about three recalls Received some transcripts of between April twenty fourth and may first of this year between the Federal Emergency Management Agency personnel and health and Human Services personnel where they are in these conversations talking in somewhat.

Feds should call Big Tech to fight COVID-19, says Silicon Valley lawmaker Ro Khanna

"Microsoft has created a chat. Bot THAT CAN HELP. Us S Kobe. Nineteen symptoms the. Cdc is using that apple has designed and is shipping a new type of face shield for healthcare workers. Ibm is loaning supercomputing power scientists and universities trying to understand the spread of the corona virus and tech billionaires ranging from Bill Gates. Jeff bezos. Most recently Jack Dorsey have pledged donations to food banks and other resources supporting people through the pandemic but should companies be taking on roles that governments could be playing and more importantly is our government prepared to actually use the tech industry effectively to combat. This crisis congressman Ro Khanna Represent Silicon Valley in the House of Representatives. He says there is still a lot of untapped. Potential apple just has helped with procuring. Twenty million masks and face shields. Tesla's of course producing ventilators. Google is trying to get information out but there are a few other things that we could be doing if we listen to them. I we could be Enlisting some of these tech companies to get the money out faster. I mean Paul Krugman at a great column about how the money is getting to the people who need it. Let's having national database. That's crowd source of for the covert crisis where we can use a I to draw conclusions. We don't have something like that. People in the valley could do that. Let's get a platform that can help for Telehealth Again that's something that Silicon Valley could contribute to and then we need for more funding if there's one thing. This crisis has told us far more funding for basic science research on vaccines and developments in antivirals and a lot of people in University of California San Francisco and other places of the valley could assist with that. So what does it take for that to happen? Are you saying that those companies should step up? Offer that or that. They should be asked to do that or both. That they are offering it so cases it requires a coordinated response. I mean part of me wishes that just for this period Bill Gates were president. I mean it Bill Gates were president basically warned about all of this in two thousand fifteen and he would. He would convene all the people in a room and say. Here's what I need you to do. And he understands science and technology. But if you don't have a understanding and appreciation for science and technology you're not harnessing all of the tools that actually are accessible to do you have a sense from talking to these companies. And all that. They're just like itching to get in here and there not being called there. It's worse than that offering. Things aren't being taken up a for their offers. One of the entrepreneurs designed an ingenious platform to allow hospitals to signal whether they need medical equipment and allow people to supply them in. They haven't been able to get this implemented You've had people saying. Let us help with creating a national database. Or let's help telehealth and I applaud them for that but what we need is a far more technologically sophisticated response and the irony is. We've seen that response in places like South Korea and China. Now they've had problems there. They became almost surveillance states. And I'm not recommending that we adopt sort of surveillance technology but we should know what technology can do and then harness that a while recognizing in respecting people's privacy. Right the same concerns over. Privacy have always been there and in some cases you know. Surveillance and data collection may be expanded by. What feels like necessity. Do you think some of those concerns. Go by the wayside now. No I think those concerns are there. I mean I would not want us to have a situation like South Korea China where you have cameras in a smartphones monitoring My movement so when I go out the government knowing whether I'm violating social distancing rules. I think that's way too intrusive and I certainly wouldn't want my health records going to the government or other entities but do I have a problem with a data going and being anonymous and then having a sense of whether Washington DC has an aggregate is sheltering in place correctly or not and where we need may need greater policies. No I think that's a useful so what I would say is. Let's use data in a constructive way. Let's have the guardrails for privacy But right now. I think you have to extremes. You have some countries using it as a surveillance state and then unfortunately in our country. We're not using it. Well enough

Neutralizing Negative Thoughts

"How are you going to ask a question? It's a simple question. You may not know the answer right now. You might have to check might have to reference it but I'm GonNa ask it anyway already. Do you know what day it is today. I mean what day of the Week. It is because a lot of folks. Your schedule's been flipped upside down. You're working at home. These days can't quite figure out what data's that's a bad thing actually. It's the daily boost from motivation to move dot com since about two thousand but we start in two thousand and five the show starred in two thousand six simple mission get up in the morning. See with world brings you could. We don't always expected to bring a pandemic but it does sometimes and it gets in her way like it's in the way okay. Well how do we deal with it? You know if you get done with the freak out and some people are still freaking out. Some people have really bad lives right now. It's it's really tough for a lot of others are barely even touched by an kind of an odd thing. So we're finding a new place to figure it out but it happens and we just work through a day by day. But why tell you what I've heard from? People that are in their homes these days and some are saying. I can't wait to get back to the office others going. This is kind of cool. I kind of like being at home at the time years ago. I made the switch I. I decided I didn't want to work in an office anymore and I actually didn't work in too many of them because I worked in Radio Section. Walk in and go through the office and go to the studio and you morning shows and I was doing the last morning show every day in West Palm Beach. Florida and As driving about sixty miles a day to get that while one way to get there so one hundred twenty miles a day. Four o'clock in the morning him on the highway cruising sixty minutes down. The radio station was getting kind of tired of it. The drive and so I started doing some math one day and the Matthew says if I drive two hours a day five days a week fifty weeks out of the year. That's about five hundred hours of driving. And then I divided it by forty a forty hour workweek right and came up with twelve point. Five forty hour workweeks driving like a third of the year and about a week later. I couldn't get out of my mind. I quit my job. So that's not GonNa do more and I took a Home Office as I'm saving all the time and putting it in into life and I've had a lot of clients through the same thing so maybe right now. You're thinking the same if you do that math right now. Some of you are going to sit at the dinner table tonight going. You know what I heard today. Do you know how many hours it's coming right. Haze Scott Smith good to have you. Thanks for stopping by. We're going to talk about neutralising. Negative thoughts today awesome show. Because I'm feeling the need to purge them from here's all show you a simple method to To get them out here get out of your head. Couple of days ago. I started getting emails. And there's a consistent theme in those e mails it was God. Have you noticed that the economy is kind of like stopped as pandemic is stopped? And we just don't know what's going to be happening and I love your show. I want this podcast and I want my Daily Mail. Daily Click text message and I want the Fisher Passion coaching. But I'm kind of looking nineteen ninety-five gotta be smart here a CJ do so. Let me help so for the first time since two thousand six. I cut the price from nineteen ninety-five down to nine five fifty percent discount during this pandemic. That's going on right now. It's available to you. Nothing's changed just price. If you're interested. Go TO MOTIVATION WHO'VE DOT COM GET? Signed up right now okay. So are you having nightmares? Lot folks are having nightmares really bad dreams right now and I'm having some weird dreams. I wouldn't call them nightmares but weird dreams. Negative thoughts though popping up throughout the day. A lot of people are doing the right now and why not there is a lot going on. There's a lot to worry about depending on where you are in this particular Process we have going right now with a pandemic. It could be very negative for you. It's kind of hard to be positive. Isn't it yet force that so I was thinking about it? I was actually working with a couple clydes helping them. Kind of neutralize. Those thoughts and a part of my job won't kill. Let's bring it here and the more I began to think about the MOIS. Okay where do I begin to pick up this? Take that I use to neutralize those negative thoughts and when I I really began to be aware of it was when I was studying for my pilot's certificate learned a little airplanes got instant radio thing and as I was going through the process. I thought it was all about flying airplanes whether things like that but I was really surprised by the emphasis put on the health of a pilot state of mind now in the beginning I never had thought about it. But then again when you think about it. If you've ever watched movies you want the pilot to be feeling pretty good. Right if he's completely negative getting in the cockpit. That's not probably a good thing to do. Negative thoughts are hazardous to flying so they teach pilots to kind of recognize in that in themselves. And actually teach you to recognize it and crew members as well has it as thoughts. Negative thoughts man bad for life to. You might be feeling that right now so next time you're feeling negative. That thought nudging its way into your day. Here's what you do number one recognize it a lot of times. These things are flying in and out of your head. It were busy. Were caught up in the news and everything else is going on. Just survival really right and we're not taking the time to recognize what's happening. We might see it as a bad mood or just being grouchy. Just being depressed or something so I want you to stop and just if you can catch it in your brain catch it before it begins to bother you too much just recognize. It's their that is the first step toward neutralizing a hazarded negative. Thought it just recognizing and so simple sometimes when you just do that. Just by recognizing it's a thought. Sometimes it goes way. You don't have to do anything else. But what if you do while number two is got to label it? Got To call it. Something get identify why the Lousy thought is coming into your mind and Slab label on it. I do this all the time. I label everything when anything comes into my world and I just got to put. I got a call at something and if I don't know what to call it or what box it put it in. Or how file? I can't do anything with it bounces around my brain. It's like an open loop that goes on and on and on and on so label it when you know what to call it. You'll know what to do next so when you label it. Well I'M A. I'm just worried about finances. That's fine just label. I'm worried about money. That's cool. Just label it because now you can take a break. You know what it is. You've stopped that spin next. You prescribe the antidote and you make the underlying cause go away. Wash away the negative now. How do you do that? Well say it is money so you're worried about that. Do what I did doing an inventory. You go and you see exactly where you are and you start to make a bit of a plan I promise you when you recognize that label it and then begin to deal with it even the smallest amount the worry while will still be there will not be this unfettered in your face driving you crazy making his not sleep. Khanna worry it'll be more controlled. You'll feel more like you. That's all you need to do. And it all stops starts just by stopping it and recognizing what's going on. It can be incredibly easy to get caught up in negative negative. Not if you will find yourself frankly in a state of overwhelm. It's everywhere right. Now GonNa put the brakes on it. Take a few minutes. All of those steps recognize it sloppily. Bilotta and then prescribe prescribe the solution described. Don't just fiddle around with it. Literally sit down and say hey. I'm the doctor me. This is what I'm GonNa do rectify this problem. Even if you can't get all the way they're just the fact that you put it up on the table you can see where it is John to Stan would initiate where it's coming from and now you have at least somewhat of a path to head down to get get it taken care of. You will sleep so much better. I promise you by the way. Did you know that alcohol sales are up? Fifty five percent and marijuana sales are off the charts right now. I bet you didn't even have to tell you that. And you just know it right when you walk into a store and they've been armed guards standing around the beer you know. There's an issue going on so breath agee breath. I'M GONNA come back tomorrow. I can't I have no idea what I'm talking about because I'm talking to my coat my members I'm talking to my clients. I'm I'm seeing what's necessary. And then we craft the story for the next day but it'd be good one because man. My phone is ringing like crazy. Appreciate also check in industry yellow. I'm doing and you have great day. I'll see tomorrow.

"Ladies and gentlemen welcome to amazing. Fda Post Today on with Barak Yoga of full gets freight-forwarding expertise seventy eight China in Shenzhen. He's established his own insult freight forwarding company from scratch which is not present in China. Usd by many of the country's sake breaks now living in Miami so getting quite an insect perspectives. Today and I thought he was important. Person to speak to one of the biggest challenges. Right now is supply. Sidon district Scifis set-aside really once oric on the show so Bartram welcome. Thank you so much. So how's life in Miami? We're just chatting about the fact that there's people carrying on like life is no more environments right now It's what is it today like end of March. Almost the you know things are in China going back to normal but now unfortunately they're more and more cases in the United States in it. Looks like you know. We have a pretty slow month in April and in May of businesses shut down right now. People are trying to stay in south currency and nothing official really As except near Simon the soft porn in Florida. A little bit luckier. Because we all look nicer wetter like a little warmer but Rest of the contracting is going to be a little bit more struggling with the winter cold weather so we'll see how it will go. Yes indeed. So let's talk about China for this episode. Then obviously he spent a lot of time in China Seven years in Shenzhen sounds like a novel or something East ICU WAYS. About how to do business in. China was potential for farmers and sellers while they super China particularly in the current situations. Let's get started with random questions I mean. First of all Is China reopening for business? Now when do you think that will be yes So eight hundred. Ninety percent of businesses are back to work but at the moment Most of the factories they don't have full capacity for production right now One of the reason is Roma chill suppliers are also having issues with sublime the enough raw material to the factories and another thing is the Roma tre prices like reading. Because they're really high right now for most of the product China and then one of the worst thing actually when this wire is China was doing. Tiny is some people now. China's largest Public Co. Lane China's most important almost eight hundred nine hundred million people traveling in mainland China. And maybe almost a hundred under fifty million people traveling at Bro. So that's where the wires hit so already. Most of the manufacturers were closed so that was what we were. What we were expecting is actually Those factories will come back to work End of January but things have changed like really badly China. They had to stay close until middle of March so during this time. Chinese factories are having serious issues with the cash flows. You know not receiving any orders. Because they're in the public lays but once they started coming back to work now the rest of the world They have the concern about their health. Most of the country's the government shutdown the countries like Italy France Germany all those countries. They're not doing a business right now. Which means China's factories don't get any orders from the rest of the world so so we're looking at the period of almost ninety days Not Having full capacity working so it's it's really massive cries for China's economy And you know this is going to have a big effect for the girls of the country for this year People back to work They everybody's wearing masks in China. My Office is back to work. We worked for bump for sometime in China. But now everybody's back to work It's difficult to find that domestic truck because prices really increased and another problem is You don't we don't have enough availability. Because most of the main ports in China like Seaports in a airport. Actually most of them they. They're closing in eighteen. Ninety nine percent of the Airplanes cancelled So it directly have the impact of freight as well because almost fifty percent of the air freight actually commercial wise were made by the passenger flights in the cargo. So now what we're looking at is the majority of Weiser cancelled so the airports are not working for the function. So everything is really connected. You know when we're talking about on the we talk about on the supply chain because it has also connection on the freight forwarding the custom the shipping times The pricing so everything is really connected to each other so Chinese doing better than a month ago Definitely about right now. They are having problems of receiving orders from overseas. So I think this is going to have a big impact in an economy and the most of the suppliers are going to have some serious problem with the cash flow. Okay so what is so to try and summarize there's a lot of stuff is sort of half working a rule. Materials prices are up and Sounds like a lot of air freight by being constrained as wet sea freight so What's the biggest constraint them would you say is it still labor or do they have most labor back in place now always rule materials or is it logistics or is it just a combination of all of them a combination of all of them right now for the majority of the people come back to work? accepted where on where the wires started who bay province which is one of the largest state in China so they they start actually Now removing the people from printing some people are going back to their daily life. The best stuff so there are almost to the Portland million. People were a crunchy in and been Wuhan. Them include a province which was like almost two months long so those people are also going back to work in the different cities. Like you know. They're going back to their Factories again in Shanghai and Ningbo in Gone Doll and chat always like big CD. So they're going back to our so right now. The the issue is not really a about people who go back to work. Most of the people are back to work. So they're factors are okay to produce. They have enough human source now. Old Employees back to management is back toward but the the issues right now is mostly with the roll roll mattress players. It used to be maybe some of our friends. Our customers are used to produce in twenty to twenty five days now the supply chain Timing increased almost out say like church the fifty percent so now some of the facts are they used to produce thirty days now. It's like almost four to five days and one of the issue made him also. The people wouldn't think of it as the product box. The cartoon mocks so there is a big shortage of the cartoon box in the market. Like you know the shipping supplies And user manuals would like pay per prices increase a lot in China so this is editor problem some of the factories and they finish production but they don't have enough packing material so everything comes together so it. It's a really complex station. Like everything comes together and right now as I get logistics. We are having our shipments shipping on time. We have good relationship with our Contractors we everything in advance but we're asking our customers to not let us their shipment time the same day. The ship is ready. We're asking people to give us some time like heads up like seven to ten days so that we know what discounting because if you let safe you send us the breaking the law stay. It's difficult to find track of the crisis increase because they know that you're Khanna desperate so I think the most important thing for Amazon sellers now to be following up the station. Very closely their freight forwarders. Their factories is very very important to be on top of everything. Every day. I mean China's people are okay with that right now because you know it's difficult time reading for Sellers Abbott also for two suppliers because they don't have enough orders. They don't have good cash flow right now at most importantly they don't know when things go back to normal so they're trying to keep everything but it's very very important for settlers to be on top of everything the production time the pricing at payment terms One of the most important thing is the logistics Right now when FBI? Amazon USA is not allowing people to create shipments. Except the you know. The the baby products are essentials. Like cleaning stuff so most of the people even if they have product ready China they cannot create labels ask the factory put the labels on the carpet so they cannot really do the ship

"Between of being lockdown. I've had all of the emotions like every kind of emotion I've had from the week before the business had to close to decide what what we were going to do before the government do told was and then the first week I was kind of lazy and then the second week I was just enjoying the moment of quiet now having to do and then like this week. Now I've been busy busy busy organizing dance almost so we'd have emotions. I'd say about you you adopted into this okay and you find implanted to go out and slowly think and this is what. I've been talking to a lot of people in the industry where I think like because we've been so busy. There's nearly as like dealing of guilt. Almost you know what I mean because like everything's cancelled We can't really plan too far ahead so we've gone from having like the whole year plan to sudenly sitting down and thinking what to do next so for me. The hardest part is actually just like taking a breath. Getting there definitely gotten their Katrina. I mean say you both as education. You really you have yourselves but how you coat with this current restrictions that we've been given in isolation lockdown everything that was planned has that created a meltdown for you and have you that with it. Yeah so I think for me what happened was I could see at Komen. I good Sense of like you know. I had it educated Portugal. That trip was cancelled. I was in Italy in that Wisconsin. I supposed to go. Easy that Wisconsin everything. Kinda start counseling down and then you know the shutdown of the Ceylon was. It would lay Again how the safety is most important and but now I'm kind of if I'm honest John. I'm enjoying having time with my family. And they're not annoying me to think he's been. We've all got a heads around. We're all in this or the same. We're all in it together. So initially was a shock. Wasn't it because again? You had some bookings going on different things we would do in it but now. I'm Kinda waking up each morning. She in kin and I feel a bit guilty for Sinus. Almost umbrella over enjoy myself. Not exactly a name isn't it? You're like you're like you're not entitled to that because you don't have all this works to actually it's a whole world is on pause. You do guilty about it because you know there's so many people suffering obviously the medical profession epidemic of wonderful thing but from a selfish industry. Point of view is quite nice to have a little bit of time down and I think the thing about it is creative. Energy is to really let that go. Wouldn't you agree? Trina yeah like in the sense as well. I think that as hairdressers we do tend to dot to you know new things that are happening. I think as a creative especially when the night stops.

For that reason because we are site is going to go live so but we're delighted that we are going to be doing everything like for donations for the floor. He weeks all that launched as mega wilder view is doing. I think for a great cause but yeah I have a lot of fun watching these lives and people getting used to beeping good to watch now. Certainly. Yeah we'll be watching what you do in. Yeah sounds great Wednesday night but we want to learn a little bit more of the guys and I know you are massive. I mean you both huge in Ireland.

I was inclined of a really big company for a long time. And they're quite good. I got quite actually started to feel like the same thing over and over again. I started to feel like I didn't actually like hair anymore. It's actually like I didn't like industry. I DOT COM to panic. Decided why didn't realize actually that I was just talking to roll and I think sometimes you don't realize until you're on the outside of it and so what happened was I think I think Katrina. Just start shot and over instagram. And WHO's just like? Who says MoD one? Who'S IN WAY MASSACHU- requests headier? Then we got gotten on. Education is always something that. Kinda I wanted to get into a bit more Fulltime Amway's doing a bit of a time never under my own name was always under the company's name or through a brand or something like that on my stock trainer kind of thing and I think Katrina just Matt The exact point where we both kind of a bit of a real realized that we could actually Jewish collaborate and fuel each other's trae tippety android without overpower each other and that was about maybe two years ago.

I don't think you can actually put a value on that radio and I think that's you know I think that's the way businesses need to be if they want to retain stuff. I think that's like more business. Owners are seeing that those that aren't are probably finding harder to retain staff Co. I kind what about you Katrina and so I guess is well like that a stage where are my education.

How Russia Is Trying To Boost Bernie Sanders' Campaign

"Last month senator Bernie Sanders acknowledged he'd been briefed by the intelligence community about Russia's efforts to boost his campaign efforts that are unwelcome NPR's Tim mak looks deeper into what Russia's campaign to boost Sanders looks like Russia's campaign includes an ever changing number of targets based on Russian strategic goals including reportedly the reelection of president Donald Trump but its support for Sanders in particular has become an attack line take this example from former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg during a recent presidential debate Vladimir Putin things that Donald Trump is should be president added states and that's why rusher is helping you but you'll have Sanders had this response Hey Mr Putin if I'm president the United States trust me you're not getting into it anymore American elections the Russian government's apparent campaign to aid centers would mostly be hidden behind the anonymity of the internet but there are ways to look to Russia's public messaging to see how they're supporting the senator Clint watts has been monitoring Russian interference as part of his work with the foreign policy research institute he says Russian state backed media was more neutral on Sanders in the fall but has begun to mirror pro Sanders talking points for scene four years ago but what's really come on strong just in the last thirty to forty five days are very similar narratives that we saw in twenty sixteen about Sanders on Russian news agencies RT and Sputnik what's noticed that Sanders received substantially better coverage than his opponents Sanders received a higher percentage of positive coverage two and a half times more than any other democratic candidates surpassing even president Donald Trump by that metric and Sanders received far less negative coverage than his rivals Jessica Brandt who works with the alliance for securing democracy has also examined Russian narratives about Sanders those tend to be that the corporate media and that the democratic establishment the DNC and elites are breaking the system against him and you know endeavoring to deny him a win another way to gauge Russia's support for Sanders is by examining social media accounts linked to their efforts in October Facebook announced it has suspended Instagram accounts with apparent links to the internet research agency a Kremlin linked troll farm based in St Petersburg Facebook share this data with graphic a social media analytics firm which said that four of the suspended accounts had a focus on praising senator Sanders he was the only candidate on the democratic side there was a focus of these fake accounts in some cases these accounts plagiarize memes and content directly from the centers can paint one post read quote millions of people in America want to get an education and Bernie Sanders is their last hope the centers can paint says Russia is trying to do their best to sow discord in the race not elect Bernie Sanders and campaign co chair congressman ro Khanna points out that the senator has been a fervent advocate of solutions to foreign interference senator Sanders has been at the forefront of election security what we need is paper ballots what we need is an investment in our election infrastructure what we needed is smart regulation against disinformation campaigns but Sanders is disavowal of Russia's efforts haven't stopped them we can yeah is the vice president of the national security program at third way a center left think tank that opposes a Sanders candidacy one of the things I think Russia looks at when they see Bernie is that he's someone who's talking about a rigged system he's talking about delete aren't with you with a long election campaign ahead this year the sense among experts is that problems with foreign interference are

Anneke Lucas, Recovering From Unimaginable Evil

"Thank you so much for joining me. Welcome to skeptic. Oh let's talk about yoga. Yes thank you for having me on. I guess anyone's journey inward journey into the nature of reality would lead to the question of evil and ice evil very much in the way that it is described in the Yoga scriptures. That is to say I see evil as ignorance ignorance of the south. You know I totally get that. And I've had those kind of conversations before because a mentioned just a few minutes few seconds. We chatted before the interview that I haven't really talked about yoga on this show. And that's true for the most part. I'm an APP. Four hundred shows. Most of them are on science in parapsychology and near death experience and extended consciousness and things like that that people can kind of approach the question of consciousness from more of a like. I said Connor more of a Guy Khanna scientists point but the things I deal with this people who wanna deny there is this extended consciousness out there like yogis accept that as a given. I mean it's part and parcel of what the Yoga tradition is. And if you read like autobiography of a Yogi I mean th anyone who's ever read that book within the first thirty pages there's shape shifting animals teleportation telepathy all this stuff is just kinda given so. I think there's a confusion when we talk about evil in its reduced down to a confusion or You know in the Buddhist sense just kind of A misunderstanding I mean. That's kind of like step. Three step one is it does exist in. I guess I I WANNA Kinda circle back to that. I mean evil right. Well there's a lot of that's to say that in our realm we all have it. We all are ignorant herself where we wouldn't even have to be here so it. It's all a matter of degree. Straighten everything is relative in our in our realm in this realm of duality. Everything's relative. Would I tried to kind of bring this back? It exists and you cannot use yoga or spirituality to bypass the reality of what happened here on Earth End. I experienced what I think of as some of the darkest experiences having to do with those who have the most power in the world who are literally ruling the world. And what is actually going on in those Strata Society? Because you're talking about that. You're almost jumping ahead to a fantastic part of the story you want to. Do you want me to tell your your audience. What happened to me? Not Not right yet because I think I feel so. It feels so Yucky that you have to go and you know bear witness to it in that way so. Let me continue with us. We're just having a chat here when when you frame it in that way. I feel like you're jumping to the healing part of the story which is a magnificent part of your story is your healing journey and and the deeper understanding that you've come to Regarding the transformation that you went through into the horrors that you endured and how you overcame those in were victorious over those but I guess the answers that this yielded this thirty year journey inward the answers. This yielded as to how to move forward and to change the power paradigm to move out of this very darkly separate right now.

"As president trump. The leader in all of that is Senator Sanders who in the last quarter of twenty nineteen gene raised an astounding thirty four point five million dollars and according to NBC News. In all of twenty nineteen uh-huh Senator Sanders is raised. One hundred eight point nine million dollars which is spectacular. Where's all this money coming from? It's it's really remarkable. Uh and it's coming from teachers and Amazon workers and workers. You be real cute there. It is one of his largest. Contributors contributors are workers at at Amazon. I mean workers in McDonalds. I mean it's a fascinating. It's amazing what he's managed to do but you know it's amazing what this field has managed to do. I think about growing up. I said I grew up in bucks. County Pennsylvania someone indian-american that time was ninety nine percent white. And if you had asked me row there's going to be When you turn learn forty-three a presidential field where you're going to have multiple African American candidates for president where you're going to have five or six women candidates for president where you're going to have someone gay running for president where you're GONNA have a Jewish democratic socialist running for president where you're going to be able to raise money through grassroots organizing housing? I would say you're you're crazy. I wouldn't have envisioned that this. That's what this country would be possible in this country and I guess that's what gives me hope just in my own lifetime lifetime when you see that possibility and I give. President Obama tremendous credit for that. I wouldn't have been in Congress if Obama had won the presidency. I think He Changed People's conception of what leadership looked like. Donald trump is a terrible reaction to that. It's a dark chapter but then you look look at the vibrancy of our field And that that gives me hope and yet here we are yes. There were lots of representation of the diversity of our nation and yet Senator Harris Black woman from California dropped out of the race Secretary Hulan Castro of Texas Latino anti-trump how the race when this campaign started there was a lot of sort of very prideful. And I think justifiably so just what you were just saying about the fact that the Democratic Party has a deep bench and a bench that looks like America and yet right now as we sit hear that bench is becoming increasingly wide or has On Saturday night live in their spoof of the last debate Where where the Judy Woodruff character says is just like the Bachelor of the longer it goes on the white get? What does that say about? Uh the party really that a party that thrives on diversity and is very diverse and looks like the nation when it comes and to the candidates for president of the United States the party through donations and support public support. Eh are tending not to the candidates of color but to the other candidates through the white candidates. I'd say it says a few things I obviously. We have a ways to go. We've come a long way in. The field is far more diverse than it even was in sixteen or two thousand eight and and that's incredible credible but we haven't come to a place where the finalists are as diverse as as they should be and it in my view Who gives me greater admiration for what Obama achieved? I don't think we fully understand what a Herculean task that was. There was a sense an a debate back then. Then that Did Obama ride the wave of history or did he defy the odds in becoming the first person of color to lead a Western democracy. And I think what we've seen post that. He defied the odds. I mean he was this extraordinary. You know a complete package. I mean it's it's almost the worst article article you can have an American politics. Is your the next Obama right. I mean you don't want that written about you. Because he was so extraordinary. No one can measure up and so I think they gave us a false sense since it said like okay. He did this for two terms and now the flood gates are open but what he showed is if you were an exceptional genius at all these things then you can be president president of the United States after we've had the worst financial crash since the Great Depression but he we were probably overly optimistic. How far the country had come on that and Komo Realistic Pictures Probably Sixteen? We're at least people are on the stage there at the table. But they're not yet at the head of the table but we'll get there and the question is how long is it GonNa take and that's For All of us to define and work but when I see the freshman class of Congress I mean sit rower the same country that elected Donald trump elected the squad an elected. All these women elected this diversity and what we're trying to do that. As a nation to become the first multicultural multiracial democracy crecy in the history of the world given the original sins of slavery and what happened to the native Americans. It's a very very difficult project and it is going to be hard. I think we had. We were too optimistic about how easy it was going to be post Obama. You've been in Congress. Now you're in your second term confirmed in your second term so now as a member of Congress and being a member of the House Budget Committee Armed Services Committee oversight and reform form. You were in the skiff. I believe when that Horde of Republicans stormed in with their phones and everything which is a complete leap violation of a lot of rules in the house. So you've seen a lot and you know a lot about what's happening happening. What's going on in the country is my final question to you is knowing all of those things what keeps you awake at night? How fearful are you as a member of Congress for the future insecurity of the United States? Doc I'm fearful for our internal divisions and Wounds Not Division of Republican Democrat and bipartisanship doesn't chip I'm fearful for the divisions of along economic racial religious cultural lines You have two very very different competing visions for America. You have the vision. Obama was taking us to. which is that? We're going to become this multicultural multi-racial multi-religious democracy Where everyone is going to have a shot at the American dream and you have the stark opposite with Donald Trump who's defining America in racial terms in in cultural terms and has stoked divisions that are That are real and going to be hard to overcome. And so when I look at Congress and I look at the fact that you could replace all of us tomorrow and I believe this with all my heart. I don't think if you put New People in it would solve the issue issue because the it's not congress that's polarized as the country. That's polarized and that is a hard hard problem and I don't know how we begin to stitch the country back together. I know it's not just going to be on. I'll go work with Republicans and Democrats is gonNA mean someone who can go into these communities and build the type of coalition on economic and racial issues of the type of work. Frankly that Reverend Barber is doing with the poor people's campaign but I almost I looked to sort of civic the big leaders like that to sort of renew the American purpose. Renew the American Spirit That's what keeps me up is is how divisive that we time.

"I didn't have to worry about the safety in my neighborhood. I got to go to a good college. And today I represent Silicon Valley all Bernie Sanders is saying is give that shot to everyone. Okay I hear you on that but okay. Here's my issue you. If you're going to run for the Democratic presidential nomination why aren't you Senator Sanders Democrat. He's an independent. Which is fine but I have a problem with someone? One Who comes into my house as guest and tells me I should rearrange my furniture and then leaves no responsibility for anything. That's that's happened after he's told us all what to do. And then the consequences of that have befallen us. Why why won't he join the Party? Well here's running right now as a Democrat I think he did do watt when Hillary Clinton was the nominee contrary to some of the Commentary I mean he did I about thirty eight events for her to campaign For her it look. I'm a lifelong Democrat. I mean I started out my career. I knocked doors for Barack Obama when he was running for the state. Senate and I did internships for Jimmy Carter order and President Clinton and have been a lifelong Democrat so he has a lot of Democrats Supporting him but I think the reason he was an independent. Did you see Carter. Carter Jimmy Carter we center Carson was like wait you just set him on the Carter in seventy six. I was like what no and that was you know that was one of the great honors was to get the President Carter About six months ago and North Korean and he's an incredible credible the leader but the the the point is that Bernie Sanders was an independent because for the longest time. His ideas about Single Payer Healthcare Free Public College and then constitutional wars were not The mainstream positions of the Democratic Party. Now now they were the positions of the Democratic Party. Harry Truman who wanted single payer healthcare and they were the positions. Actually Jimmy Carter ran on single payer national health care and seventy six and one but in nineteen eighty with the Reagan Revolution. A lot of those positions were removed from the Democratic Platform and so he was an oppositional voice to the DLC in that direction of the party But I think now He has won a lot of those policy debates. I mean whoever the nominee is is moving in the direction of a stronger longer social safety net in terms of making public college affordable in terms of making healthcare a human rights. In yet we still. Don't I think thanks the history that you've given us about single payer. Healthcare is great. But we still don't have it and then if you look at public opinion polling and just interviews as a people out in the country folks are afraid of what single payer healthcare could mean or medicare for all would mean for them. I mean when Senator Harris was running for president you know she initially said do away with private insurance and then unheard from supporters particularly union supporters. Saying look we negotiated are great healthcare. Even you know did did without pay increases to get the health plans that we have and so she. Her plan was when they had a long runway to get there. So how how would how will senator sanders allay the fears of a lot of people out there who are afraid of his as they might view radical attempt to over to remake American healthcare. A first of all I think just to go over the history again Harry. Truman was the first person who proposed single single payer healthcare and he was. It was called socialized medicine back then and still calling it. They're saying but he had the courage to push it back. Then I mean and you know Jimmy Jimmy Carter for people who say you can't win a national election. Jimmy Carter ran on national single payer healthcare nineteen seventy-six the irony. You know why he had to adopt that because the unions back then said we're not going to support a southern moderate governor unless he's for single payer and so Kerr adopt single payer to win the primary and he wins the general election by the way they asked Tim. How are you going to pay for it and someone can look at the seventy six New York Times article and Carter says we'll figure that out when I'm president so you know that was? Jud says that Senator Sanders Response Bounce now now that we actually got much more details. We say we're going to tax the the corporations and tax the wealthy to pay for it. But let's talk about what this is going to mean for people people it's GonNa mean you get healthcare and you're not gonNA have those premiums you're not gonNa have those Co pays you're not gonNA have those deductibles by the way one in four four Americans are don't get the healthcare. They need because of the costs because they don't want to get the deductibles because they can't afford the prescriptions. You know my mom's getting hearing hearing is unfortunately she's CAN AFFORD IT three four thousand dollar bill. Imagine how many people in this country aren't getting a hearing aids because they can't afford it so we're saying you're going to get healthcare it's GonNa be free. You're also going to get help hearing you're going to get dental you're GONNA get vision and by the way if you still one more under Sanders Bill Oh you can get supplemental insurance. I mean in Great Britain or Canada. You can still get supplemental private insurance if you're rich. So what is the issue. I mean everyone who's getting healthcare of care and you're getting it for free and you're getting more coverage should before at the seniors should be the most for it. 'CAUSE LONG-TERM CARE is covered visions covered dental is covered so the only real criticism awesome is well. WHO's going to pay for it and get if you're in the top one percent? You shouldn't be for this your taxes go up if you are In that category you'RE GONNA have to pay more and the corporations by the way are going to have to pay a payroll tax but look at. At and T.. twenty-five percent of their payroll on healthcare costs variety thirty three percent of their payroll and healthcare costs most corporations. It's certainly small. Businesses are GONNA come out better with payroll attacks in the savings single payer than the current premiums that keep going up now if you're in the insurance industry you shouldn't before this if you're in the pharmaceutical industry you shouldn't before for this if you're one of the hospitals. CEO's making six million bucks. You shouldn't before it. The final point is this. I keep hearing well you know. What if you can't get this through? What McConnell is the Senate majority leader? What if you don't have the reason it's but when do we we campaign in our vision right? We campaign on what the ideal is does. Is anyone doubt that if we start with this and there was some compromise to improve the bill that sanders wouldn't sign. Of course he would sign it. He was supportive of the affordable care. Act It's not like devoted against it but the point is have a sense of what you want to fight for. Have a sense of. What your vision? Is You know what I mean. Lyndon Johnson said let's let's let's reduce poverty by ten percent. He said let's live in poverty. And then you can focus how you get there. But I'm still trying to hear or understand. Understand how the senator would argue in convince people who are maybe still on the fence. How you're going to provide ride free? Healthcare free education and a bunch of other things a green new deal and all of that and it not impact their financial security their economic security. Because it's not just how much money is coming out of their pay in terms of healthcare costs or outrageous student loan debt. But it also. Is You know the the consequences of some of these things that could lead to job losses and other economic losses where you know livelihoods are changed that. There's a lot of fear out in the country and fear. You're about some of these plans that I've heard and read regular everyday citizens calling radical well. They're not they're not radical of what we're talking about. Actually creating more jobs considered the infrastructure. Bill I mean if trump would not put a trillion and a half dollars into a tax cut and it put two trillion dollars into into infrastructure. That would have created. According to the American Society of Engineers four to five million jobs. Blue collar jobs jobs across this country and that's the type of investment that Senator Sanders is talking about now. Some of them could be clean tech jobs and solar and wind. But they're going to run the gamut of the different types of jobs and then you talk to the average person and say here's how your life's going to be better. You know I mean I turned out to be fortunate. I took about one hundred thousand dollars out for law school loans but for most people. Those loans can be crippling in there a reason that people don't go to to college or don't go to trade school so you're not gonNA have that burden and by the way it's not to go to Dartmouth Arthur Harvard or Yale. It's to go to public university. So we're talking about give everyone the chance to have a as much education as they one. Give everyone the chance to have healthcare. Give everyone a chance to have basic childcare so they can make something of themselves in this country and the people are going to pay for it well people in my district. I mean we've got. We've got more millionaires billionaires that we we know what to do with they can pay a little bit more. You know this idea that they're going to. If you have a two percent wealth taxes represent wealth that they're gonNA take their money overseas actually. Had someone do the research it turns out. Eighty seven percent of American wealth is in the United States. The next closest is Two percent in the Cayman Islands one point five percent in Great Britain so the reason is because America is still the best place to to invest so these rich people are saying we'll take our money out of the United States the same people who said we're going to leave if donald trump becomes president. How many of your friends said that? Guess what they're still in America America because America's still the best place I was GonNa say I don't have I have some superwealthy friends but not enough so they can pay more. These he's companies Amazon can pay some tax zero percent tax. It's absurd they can pay. And why is it that the Republicans who have run up huge deficits every time a republican. Income's what are they do. They increased defense spending. They cut taxes then. A Democrat comes in Clinton or Obama. And they've gotta clean it up and then the Republican comes and they do their priorities thirties. Why is it that they get to say four percent economic growth is going to fix everything? What are we talking about? Economic Growth Our party. Our investment in education or investment and infrastructure investment investment in healthcare. That's going to get three or four percent economic growth. It's actually more plausible than what trump is arguing. You know one of the the amazing things about the race on the Democratic Democratic side is just how much money the candidates are raising. You've got fourteen candidates running for the Democratic nomination and and just the the seven who have announced so far they have raised three times as.

"khanna" Discussed on The TED Interview

"So. Let's talk a bit about your new book in your New Thinking so you've got this new book out called the future is Asian. What do you mean by that. The point of this book was to say that Asia is much bigger than just China and that's a big gaping hole in the literature. We have twenty the years of books that purport to be about Asia but are basically just about China and there's an assumption that Asia is basically you know whatever China wants China gets what it wants. It gets what it wants is everywhere in the world and certainly in its own neighborhood so who cares what those other people think but the history of Asia is four plus thousand years of rich distinct into vibrant civilizations dozens of them that have actually done a very good job of maintaining their independence from China so I wanted to bring life to the Southeast Asian civilizations Persian civilization Indians civilize ation and so on and so forth and to show how they have over Millennia of silk roads had these patterns of commerce conflict and culture in their interactions with each other that actually is a very natural state of affairs for Asia which chits returning and why does it matter. We'll Chris. We're talking about five billion people so the demographic piece is pretty well known that is where the people are but there's. There's probably an unquestioned assumption a lot of people in the West that still the majority of economic action is I mean America's still by some measures the world's else largest economy strongest military and that culturally in many ways the West still leads the world. What do you mean by the future divide. The West. I talked about the world. Being European is in the Nineteenth Century Americanized in the twentieth century in Asia is the twenty first century. The impact of Europe in the world is as deep as has profound is what America achieved the twenty century because if you think about the Europeanisation of the world through colonialism it gave the world though the the boundaries that it has today it gave save much of the world you know European languages that they speak the parliamentary systems that they have inherited from the British empire and so forth and of course enlightenment values and so forth so so the Europeanisation of the world still has a profound impact a lasting impact then there's the Americanization of the world in the in the twentieth century the spread of Democracy Freedom the love of entrepreneurialism realism the soft power of America. All those things are profoundly baked into so much of the world today and all I'm saying that there's a new layer and one civilization does not displaced destroy and bury its predecessors. They add a new layer of richness right. It's just a new layer of soil that is fertilizing right our global society and that's what Asia is doing and so whether it is the number of people who are learning Chinese or going to study in China whether it is the visibility of Bollywood Hollywood movies and K pop music whether it is yoga meditation and mindfulness and of course the spread of Asian people as Diasporas all over the world right the number one source of new citizens every year in the United States is Asians. Not Latinos right so the Asian Association of the world is not a challenge culturally to the it's just a new layer and of course it's happening so you so you talk about Asianisation in general. What does that feel like so for example? Take A kid growing up in New York City today or even even in Colorado where the learning Chinese has displaced Spanish as the top language of choice for for second language study so you actually grow up learning Chinese on the side right then when it comes to your backpacking you don't just go to Europe you decide. I'm going to go backpack around Southeast Asia instead then when it comes time to go to college realize well actually these great great American universities like Yale or MIT. NYU have campuses in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai and Singapore so I guess I'll just go there after all their subsidize actually she cheaper than studying in the United States but get my American education then I want to join a startup however that startups biggest market is Asia right. They really want to sell their APPs and Technology Indonesia Indonesia so it looks like my first job is going to be in Jakarta so that's just a composite generic example but I can name you. Hundreds of people who've gone through exactly that pattern the ones I write about so again you and I are of a certain age young Americans today who were growing up were teenagers they already live in a world in which Asia's a huge part of their consciousness. That's all to think that more people in Asia are actually adopting being Asian as part of their identity. Asia itself is not that isn't a term that was invented by Asians and you can let goes it goes back. there is no reason a label on a part of the work so so. I'm so glad you mentioned it. So people's identity isn't like traditionally has not been. I'm Asian it. It might have been you know I am Tibetan or Vietnamese. I need still very much. Is these rich historical civilizations that have each viewed themselves as the center of the universe. Why would they also even bother other to invent a term for this geography that they didn't even measure or quantify our map until Europe gave it a name that they also use so. Is there a new new layer of Asian identity on top of the fact that I'm Indian or Chinese or Persian or Turkish. The answer is becoming yes and the reason by the way that it's not the first time in history right again you think about the silk roads it existed five hundred years ago before colonialism a thousand years ago fifteen hundred years ago. Asians had a sense of their common interactions with the spread of cultural learning the spread of religion like Buddhism for example of an all of these principles jason and values circulation across Asians that happened for Millennia no Chinese persons in say yeah. I'm Asian not Chinese but is there a resurgence urgence of a certain kind of Pan Asian identity and even pride absolutely Chris. You live in Singapore talk about how people pulled who you interact with and Singapore now elsewhere in Asia how conscious they are of this time. I mean without a doubt everywhere I go in Asia. That's what you hear and by the way it's not about how rich you are how poor you are right. It's about your momentum. It's the sense that we're getting there and we know how to get there and everything that we could could learn from the past experience of Western dominance or tutelage. We is Baked Newark present model which just GonNa take a matter of time either faster slow but we'll get there. We'll be hyper modern look how the Chinese did it. The Japanese did it before them and the Koreans and when we WANNA be a smart city we look at Singapore or we look at you know Hong Kong or soul or whatever so Asians have much at this point more to learn from each other than they do from the rest of the world and again. There's so much evidence of this. You can see it in their diplomacy in the number of new institutions and and cross-border investment the merging of stock exchanges the number of tourists and business travellers and students of all. They're just crisscrossing. Learn each other's languages trading with each other at breakneck pace prog. One of the criticisms of some veal writing has been that in your in your excitement about what's happened in the recent sort of Asian gross story stories that you haven't paid enough attention to the price paid for that sometimes in particular the sort of extreme authoritarian measures taken by some governments including Singapore where you live. How do you think about that. You've got democracy in the West. That's many many issues exposed. I guess in recent years you've got governments in Asia Asia many of which have shown incredible effectiveness in most measures of of development and I would even say competency but also some dark things things going on right does the price of progress justify a certain level of authoritarian ruthlessness will authoritarian ruthlessness is not and should not on the necessary for progress. It certainly hasn't been in Norway right for for example or or Iceland for that matter. This is a very common debate in Asia among countries countries. Do we have to be like the Chinese government in order to achieve what China has any answer is. No one should be more disciplined right in terms of execution which there is a decision session when there was a decision that Indian people should have universal basic income or universal healthcare will then go and do it right. That's a good thing for the people to have. Don't be corrupt about the way India is that every possible level.

"Friction things like fiber optic cables like container ships like you know what you are doing. What deliberately are not. Is your making making it possible for someone eight thousand miles away to take your job because they can do what you were doing much more efficiently and then and then send it to your country. I mean that has been in a powerful driver of resentment. I mean hasn't that actually been a transfer of jobs from America from the West to parts of Asia Asia especially. Let's take worker X. In America who lost his job in an automobile plant because it was outsource to Thailand and worker why in Germany armony to whom the exact same thing happened. Why is it that the worker voted for trump and and is unemployed worker. Y in Germany is happily working in another job. he was upskilled by the government between the difference between the two is not wanNA smarter than the other because obviously the self defeating hyper-nationalist isolationist is policies of trump are not anything that people look up to and other governments of the world and meanwhile. They're still that unemployed guy. Which government would you rather have as your government. The one that invested in re-skilling Skilling its workers are the ones that didn't because we can go back to the nineteen seventies when government started investing in trade adjustment assistance for their workers and we can measure exactly which governments did it and which governments spend two to three percent of their budget way countries like Denmark do versus those. That's been nothing on it. which is the United States governor again? Whose fault is it is not China salt does not Thailand's fault it is Washington's fault and so if I were that unemployed guy in Detroit I would vote for trump trump too. I absolutely would it's not because I hate China because I'm so mad that for forty years no one trained me to do a new job right but but I still think it's sad to say that many people missed the level of fear and anger that was building as a result of the sort of Ma massive that shifted in how the world's what forces were organized. You can understand what's perceived by many people as this dangerous scary Gary Full. I not only understand it. I've deep sympathies for which is why I and people far more plugged in and influential and focused on the issue than I am advocate advocate the correct remedies policies none of which involve placing no tariffs on Chinese goods that therefore raised the cost to those unemployed people to to buy stuff at Walmart right. It's counter productive in every possible respect. I think that someone who's lost. Their job. Actually knows who is to blame by the way they go may go to trump Browley and because they blame you know previous administrations plural for not having done the things that are needed for them to to maintain a high standard of living and and by the way I'm not for on a Lloyd unfiltered free markets and globalization. The central operating principle in my work is what I call flow versus friction in every every country has to figure out what's the right volume or degree of flow and friction in every category of its foreign relations and America has gotten a lot of those right by advocating for free trade. It's helped it's companies be the greatest beneficiaries. I mean what are the largest companies in the world after all Chris Right there American technology firms and financial institutions but it is the job album the American government to figure out how to redistribute that how to tax that how to do investments savings and not all countries do it as badly as America and Britain have put in addition to the economic piece. There are legitimate concerns around how fast coaches can integrate like how wise is it to have wide open borders you know mass immigration and so forth given how complex humans are how how different are cultural values there there are surely legitimate dangers in accelerated which is not it's not wise at all to have just unfettered mass immigration. Asian look at the consequences in the cultural reactions to them again flow and friction. You have to do it in a way such that. Your population continues to accept it so to speak Germany place. I've lived many times. They were sort of applauded for having led an emir million refugees on the last couple of years in particular but then it got to be too much right so either. Are you rapidly integrate them in some way assimilate them or you don't but let's also go back to the economic point which is that every society has a supply and demand issue around demographics if a country is not giving birth to more children. It's going to need more immigrants them so just because there's an anti-immigrant backlash somewhere whether it's America or whether it's Germany that it doesn't mean the right position to have so Europe doesn't have an immigration problem. It has an assimilation problem by the numbers. It must have more immigrants. It's it must the question is can assimilate them well which is really up to it do instinct well. Let's let's switch to the other globally connecting techno optimistic were we ran into which is technology itself at one point. It was possible to say hey you know. FACEBOOK is connecting the world has billions of people who have accounts suddenly we can all be friends carly. What's your take on on the big tech pushback this happened so the Internet is connecting the world and telephony anthony is connecting the world and facebook might be one sort of particular barometer metric of how people connect some of the time right but it would be inaccurate for it to use a backlash against facebook so to speak as a symbol that people are concerned and don't like technological connectivity that would be nonsense right in part of it is the fact that we do learn so much and we do reduce our costs right and have access to global knowledge from being able to be connected without ever having having to leave our homes so you can learn Chinese by just having a skype buddy in China and multiply that by billions and that's actually what is happening so again if you look get facebook and manipulation of fake news and viral rumors that have obviously contributed to the US election tipped and even to violent bloody murderous murderous campaigns against ethnic minorities in India or in Myanmar part of what is maintaining the support for this technological connectivity activity in again. The vast majority of the world's population is because they can watch and see how we had too much flow and not enough friction right not enough regulation not enough control troll not enough saying hey if there's fake news that has to be taken down immediately and they're watching that in India for example which having the biggest election in the world as every Indian election election is coming up this year and they're saying you know what we're the biggest country facebook users on earth. We clearly benefit from it just as facebook you know their revenue sort of revenue growth is an Indian Asia. It's it's extraordinary but the Indian government has said if you want to continue to operate here during our election you better hire hundreds if not thousands of people to monitor filter the content on WHATSAPP facebook and so forth so that we don't suffer the downside of this activity so again flow and friction allow the flows allow the connectivity allow the conversation but friction when it comes to fake news monitored regulated delete it so what the Indian government did that was wise in your view. I mean what would be your advice to the Tech Companies Mall More broadly. There are certain aspects that you have to comply with if they say that you have of data localization right you have to physically store data you have to have your servers on shore and so forth otherwise you can't operate in this market you have to make a decision you know is it better to be in that market kid and to allow for all of the benefits that accrue tangible and intangible to those populations or not you clearly see. Most companies are saying yes. You know it's better to be in the market at the not. An analogy that you can also relate to is just publishing. I mean my books get redacted. They get censored. If I don't accept those reductions or tech that company doesn't accept the restrictions that how will it ever get to communicate with those people and allow them to get the additional information that would otherwise not get to be the the narrative around technology will shift over the next year so the back to more positive they will respond in some ways and that people will remember the upside benefits they get from. We'll I just have to challenge the assumption because again we all experience everyday and benefit from the productivity gains the access to information and so forth what you're referring to is that you know there is a pile on effect where everyone wants to be the senator or congressman who attacks Mark Zuckerberg but you're not actually claiming. I don't think that the majority of the American population has turned anti tech. I mean that would be preposterous. However it would be sad if we were really throwing the baby out with the bathwater given that these technologies he's were invented in America right and again. We do benefit so much. Maybe what we should do. Instead is to stop whether your critic or not stop appreciate and quantify as I try to do just in which ways we benefit every city hall every City Council every mayor every congressman now has a facebook page rather than the Halcion all seon good old days where you have to call your congressman to make a complaint and of course no one answered today they respond they have to they get the message that says fix this. We're complaining with this. You can't claim you didn't get the email or the facebook message so let's be truthful honest and holistic about what constitutes the role of technology technology in our society in its way broader way better than we think about when we just make these narrow critiques anything that can be a difference between what people do and down the narrative that they have about it and certainly the narrative that has been blowing up the last couple of years. Is that holy crap. This stuff is has gone wrong young in many ways that we did not see coming and we don't like but I think even even beyond that narrative that I think the fundamental question that a lot of people in the West I worry about is doesn't unexpected sort of stress of all the connectivity that we're kind of addicted to it a lot of us and I asked for a show of hands of the few years ago about if you had to choose between letting go of the internet or indoor plumbing which which would go to two thirds or serve the audience would let go of indoor plumbing. I possibly because because they figured they could google. You know how to dig your own toilet. Flush the toilet too much anyway. It's better for the environment. I wonder whether I want to go now like I suspect it might it might have swung the other way at least temporarily even though I sometimes hate it often hated. I couldn't imagine a life without that connectivity as you know more people in India yeah mobile mobile phones and have access to toilets so clearly humanity is speaking. It's choice at some degree and obviously the answer is both at and right at the end of the day we want we want both we don't ever sees and this to me was the most fun part of all the research. I've done to just dig deep into the last you know million million years of human history. It is our human instinct. It is our impulse to want to be connected..

"Anderson here. I have some good news third. Season is coming your way soon it premiers on October ninth and we have a really exciting waiting list of speakers coming up starting with the psychologist Daniel Gilbert consciousness researcher an seth and the wonderful author Elif Shattuck today sharing a bonus episode recorded earlier this year and here we go this is Chris Anderson Walk into the Ted Interview podcast series where I get to sit down with Ted Speaker and unjust dive much deeper into their ideas and it's possible during a short tedtalk today on the show Rog Kana and a different different way to think about globalism peroxy doesn't look at a map the way must people do. He doesn't see world of two hundred countries defined by the sovereign rim borders. He sees a world of physical connections that more often than not transcend. Those borders mega-cities connected by roads railways is trade routes fiber optic cables. This is what he calls. Connect talk griffey connect dog. He represents a quantum leap in the mobility of people resources ideas but it is an evolution and evolution of the world from from political geography which is how we legally divide the world to functional geography just how we actually use the world parag advocates this kind of thinking will revolutionize how countries and governments organize themselves in the future that continued globalization station is absolutely essential and the centers of influence are shifting profoundly and irreversibly to the East parague and I had a wide ranging conversation on the implications of this worldview and whether it can survive the current pushback against globalism in all its forms. It's rare. You meet someone who so certain of his views. I almost thought he was going to stop pounding the table at one point at any rate for anyone trying to understand what is coming the issues. Parag grazes are absolutely key so without further ADO Parag Khanna so parague welcome. Thanks so much that's Chris so willing to have a delicious conversation. I think really about how to think about the world quite important topic or approach indeed. Did I think this affects not just you know how he read the news. How we understand or think about future goes to things about. Do we feel hopeful about what was to come or do. We dread it but before we go there. I just want to go back a bit to you because there was an incident a US a teenager that helped shape some of your worldview. Tell me about that. Oh not an incident but I would say a world historical event when the Berlin Wall fell November nineteen nine for my parents my dad had visited the Germany a number of times and even live there as an exchange student on business kind of apprenticeship and he and my mom took my brother and me got on a plane in and we flew to Germany and we went to Berlin and as you know Chris the Berlin Wall was actually one hundred something kilometers of concrete. It wasn't just that one slab in front of the Brandenburg Gate where Ronald Reagan went and stood and said Mister Gorbachev tear down this wall a few years earlier it was big so it was still there of course took years to take it all down so I got my hammer in my chisel rented one for five tomorrow and I hammered away and I took pieces and distributed into the eighth grade class. Basically that moment everything that has done since you know. Let's say thirty years. Kinda comes back to that day because what was going on in your head was something like this. Boorda clearly made in a sense this was crazy. This was this was blocking so much that shouldn't have been blocked that would be like the kind of moral insight that I didn't have the time it was more that I am getting to live geopolitical change and geopolitical change. Your political complexity exit is is everything that it's what I eat sleep and breathe. It's all I care about. My Life's work can be described in the words geopolitical complexity. That's what I'm out to do. Tell us about that chore. Maybe many people take for granted that they think that the most fundamental way of organizing ourselves as according to nations and borders but that wouldn't be true necessarily of young people the age of in this case you know my children or or the the global youth they really have a different outlook and to me what I'm saying it should be fairly obvious to them that connectivity and connectedness and your degree of connectedness whether it's digital digital or physical your ease of mobility by airlines or you know how many facebook friends who have whatever is as much part of who you are and who you feel you are then the country you live in and the arbitrary notion that your ethnicity or your nationality defines you entirely one of the striking things you you didn't talk was just say hello just take a look at the world from space. Look at the satellite view of the world. What do you see you do not say political borders. What do you see what you see. Largely is is connectivity. UC urbanization you see cities the fact that the majority of the world's population lives in cities the satellite map of the world or the astronauts you the world shows you those lights at night that really represents not only how we have voluntarily decided to distribute ourselves around the world which is to say to live in cities and to live near bodies of water in the latter being a biological necessity the former being a human choice and one of the things that I think is deep in the message that I again again. Think is fairly normal is that can activity to other people is deeply part of who we are and now we physically doing it. We are you can map it and show how how important that infrastructure is our to make human life as it is possible and so. I think you're arguing that you know when you when you look at a political border I mean in a way that divides two territories but that more significant than that Boorda other number of things that are crossing. You pointed to lots of things from what there are roads. Is there a rail lines their their fiber optic cables that allow in a massive amounts of communication. There's there's airplanes shuttling people to and fro the more aw significant thing to look understanding. It's like you might have to big cities on opposite sides of our border that are inherently linked and how they what are the lives dependent on the life of the other cities totally like is it. Is it really economic trade. That has been the biggest driver of these connections between territories or very very often. Yes it could could also be though ethnic kinship so the notion that you know ethnicity and the tribe defines who you are and therefore your neighbor is the other is not actually true. Chris for the majority of the world's population because as you well know so many borders arbitrary that they cut ethnicities off from each other as you know my wife is from Pakistan and I'm I'm from India where both Punjabi my family fled from. Kosovo called Pakistan to India and it was created in nineteen forty seven. Her family fled from India to Pakistan. We're identical people so again. The notion that that other is actually different is ludicrous. It's the border that is so fake and arbitrary because it divided that unit that we you think of a so fundamental so borders criminal in in two ways in that sense so this worldview certainly as expressed in that Ted talk from twenty sixteen. I'm pretty optimistic. View would say but since that talk there have been two I would say like giant challenges to that view you know the rise of anti-globalization mindsets they were always there but a lot of us didn't pay enough attention to them and Brexit the rise of trump etc that really challenged the sense that this was unstoppable that this was an unalloyed good the thing and then the second one is what happened to technology itself where whether it's been a real shift in public opinion about you know the the sort of the dark side of technology. I what kind of to to on both those pushbacks I mean the first is the easiest and most open and shut case to deal with because there is no such thing Chris as an actual antiglobalization movement. You may call it. That trump may call it that he may say. I'm a nationalist not a globalist. People may write books about it false. There was a so-called antiglobalization movement in the nineteen nineties right those were the people who are protesting against the World Trade Organization further global trade liberalisation in this kind of thing. That is not what you see today. Let's be obsolete clear that trump and brexit are about criticizing and protesting the failure of their own governments to manage globalization. They are not anti-globalization the the soybean farmers of America. The lobster export is of America the micro chip in semiconductor exports of America you name it are not against what was Asian. No one wants a more expensive pair of jeans or more expensive iphone right but people do want jobs. If you take the word and you connected take all these incredibly low.

"Media podcast network today I'm in Washington DC and I'm very happy to have congressman ro Khanna back on the podcast he represents California's seventeenth district which includes the campuses of Google and apple. We're talking about something. He's been working on the internet Bill of rights, which I discussed in my column for the New York Times this week row, welcome to Rico, decode. Thanks and congratulations on your column. Quite a center, creating a stir is my job ro, you're going to create a, sir. I hope this Bill of rights, but let's talk a little bit about we're since when we talk last time and then I wanna get into what you're doing. Last time we talked, I think it was before Cambridgeshire politico or or this right after. So how do you assess what's going on in the district you represent and what's happening in the country at large over tack that things have happened? Well, there's a concern with concern with people saying, whoa, what's going on? Why is congress not acting here? We've had massive breaches of people's privacy. There's a concern about people not being safe with their data. What is congress doing? And so the internet Bill of rights is an answer to say, congress needs to do something to safeguard people's privacy, right? So we're going to go over the individual aspects of it, but I, I wanna get sort of an idea of like they hearings had not taken place and the house hearings went better than the Senate hearing hearings were a ridiculous goat. Roti was far as I could tell. I watched the whole thing. Has the mood changed perceptibly since that or as as more revelations have come up about Cambridge analytic about Facebook. Now Twitter, of course is sucked up into this Alex Jones controversy, right? So let's walk through those. What what do you think the about those hearings and the impact of them? Well, I think people thought the Senate and the house were ill equipped to deal with these issues. I mean, you we've discussed this before they asking is Robert. How does Facebook make money and not knowing their model of of ads and as sense that congress was not really prepared to go beyond the questions that the staffers had written for some of the senators and house members the challenges after those than month, immediate exposure. The Congress's moved onto now dealing with tax policy and other issues, and this has kind of gone off the front burner, right? And the tech leaders, they're fine with that. There's they're, they're fine. They know that congress is and move. Having that the politics in the energy and commerce committee are between the internet service providers and the edge providers, the AT and t. are fighting the Facebook's and Google's and nothing is happening. And so the status quo is fine for a lot of these folks. The people are suffering. Of course, our consumers using these the these platforms, but I would be lying if I said that there was some concrete action taking place in congress right now. Right? It's just the status quo is kind of just a circus in where it just questions. You're absolutely right. We're just all over the place and not very pertinent to what was happening. Is there anything congress can do in this area? Just we're gonna talk about the Bill of rights, but we do you foresee any legislation coming out, you just don't. I don't either. I don't think anything's going to happen before the midterm election, and of course you couldn't do something. Hell -fornia past s the privacy laws. There's no reason congress couldn't act, but there is no will to act. And candidly people on both sides. I talked to some of the leaders and I'm not gonna tell a name name say, well, let's just punt this till after the election. So there is not the desire in congress to to get something done. There could be things short of an internet Bill of rights. I mean you you would think there's been one of the biggest scandals in people's privacy. You would think congress would pass something, but there's been no effort. So counting down past the elections elections, of course, are of concern, and it's not even hacking because it's just using the platform improperly in lack of transparency, lack of privacy, run usage of the day, all kinds of things. Because really, I mean, I think the conclusion except for kneeling, believe is Donald Trump is that the Russians use the platforms as they were built. Right?.
