Lawmakers argue over potential commission to study Capitol riot

"Serious questions about the Capitol Hill riot. Boxes. Mike Emanuel on Capitol Hill reports There have been bipartisan cause for a commission to thoroughly investigate the January 6th Capitol Hill riot when a commission investigated the September 11th attacks. The split was even Democrats and Republicans. House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy says Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to give Democrats more power and more members first. It's not bipartisan. 74 Secondly, they don't allow subpoena power for the minority and majority to work together. New York Democrat Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, the Democratic caucus chair, was asked about Pelosi's plan. I'm not prepared to say that a 74 split is unfair.

"Born in Israel Yuval Levin moved to the United States with his family when he was eight now director of Social Cultural and constitutional studies at the American Enterprise Institute. You've all served the domestic policy staff in the White House of George W Bush. You've eleven's most recent book a time to build from family and community to Congress and the campus how recommitting to our institutions can revive the American dream. You've all welcome. Thank you very much. The economy is strong. We have rising household income and the lowest levels of unemployment in decades. And we're not engaged in any shooting wars anywhere on earth. There's a pretty good argument to be made that this is a good time. And here's the way you open a time to build two decades ago at the turn of the Millennium. Many Americans had a sense that we were living at the dawn of a new age by now it has become unavoidably evident that our country has experienced the beginning of this new millennium less as a dawn then as a twilight age. If things are so good how come. They're so bad. Yeah this is the question that really started me on the path to this book. And it's the question that the book opens with. Which is if you look at some of the familiar measures of wellbeing. How's the economy? Doing people healthier people safe bell measures. This is a great time And yet if you look at how people feel about this moment and if you look at the nature of our politics if you look at the polarization and dysfunction we're living through if you look at increases in suicide rates and use At at what's going on on college campuses and in a lot of arenas of American Life. It seems like this time of intense frustration and unease and the question is if the problem isn't evident in those areas where we normally look to. Where IS THE PROBLEM? And so the book looks for that problem in our social lives in the intersection of people rather than in how people are doing individually and ultimately ends up thinking about the health of our institutions as the way to understand why we're frustrated what otherwise seems like a good time. All right this is a rigorous argument rigorous arguments begin by defining their terms quote when I speak of institutions. I mean the durable forms of our common life the durable forms of our common life. They're the frameworks and structures of what we do together got to explain that. Yeah so this term institutions is very broad and capricious. It defines a lot of things right. I the families and institution. A corporation is an institution marriage institution. The rule of law has described as a student. I think it's right to call all those things by that same name but that means we have to think about what that name is and the book works through some of the attempts by academics to define the term but ultimately it comes to what for me as a sort of Priscilla an answer to the question. Our institutions are the forms of what we do together. They're not just clumps of people clumps of people organized around a particular end and organized around an ideal and a way of achieving that important goal so some of our institutions are in charge of of teaching our kids. Some of them enforce the law. Some of them just provide us with a good or a service but each of them forms the people within it into a shape that makes them capable of achieving that. And that's what makes them an institution you trace the collapse of confidence and institutions and the polling data is right there you go through it. The Gallup organization HAS BEEN ASKING AMERICANS CONFIDENCE. They have in our institution since the seventy. Here's just one example in the nineteen seventies more than forty percent of the public expressed confidence in Congress. You might think that's us. Starting at a relatively low point by twenty eleven that figure had fallen to percent and and you kind of have to wonder even those eleven percent savings. Do you know what I haven't met any of them. What accounts for the collapse again? A time to build we have moved roughly speaking from thinking of institutions as molds. You just mentioned that as molds that shape people's characters and habits toward seeing them instead as platforms that allow people to display themselves before a wider world. Yeah so the collapse of trust in institutions as you say the the fact of that happening sort of Cliche by now but it forces you to ask what do we actually mean. Trust in institutions. It's not the most obvious idea and wh- surely one of the things we mean. Is We think. The institution is competent and honest as so that incompetence and and fraud or corruption undermines our trusted institutions. But those things aren't new incompetence and corruption. That's that's part of the human experience if anything is so it doesn't explain this this collapse of trust lately but there is an element of our loss of trust in institutions. That seems more native to the twenty first century and that has to do with the sense that we trust and institution because we think it forms people to do their job in trustworthy way so that not only does it perform an important function it shapes the people in it to do that with integrity and defines an ideal of integrity for them. But what we've seen in the last. Several decades is a transformation in our expectations of institutions. So that we think of them less is doing that now. More is giving people on. I'm old thing I'm almost thinking of just to get to the point. I'm almost think he was something as Cliche as the Richard Gere. Move The old Richard Gere movie an officer and a gentleman. The young man is a mess. Put Him into the military outcomes. An officer and a gentleman. That's an extreme example of what all kinds of institutions do they take. Human beings are a mess in all kinds of ways in good institutions shape. Them make them useful with the military is interesting? Because it's the it's the great exception to our loss of trust and institutions. Americans have higher confidence in the military now than they did when Gallup started measuring the seventies and I think the reason for that has everything to do with what you say. Here which is the military is unabashedly formative. It's not just good at protecting us from our enemies of it is. It's also good at transforming young people into responsible. Serious men women when somebody tells you that they went to Harvard. You think maybe that's a serious person. Maybe that's an an intelligent person. Maybe not but you know whatever they are. They got into Harvard because Harvard sort of measured them decided if they were up to that standard and then let them in when someone tells you they went to the Naval Academy. You think this is a serious person and it's because of the Naval Academy because it made them that way right all right. You discuss a number of institutions in the book. Let's take a couple The federal government. Let's start with Congress a time to build. It is perfectly obvious that something has gone wrong with Congress in our time. There hasn't been a proper budget process in over a decade very little significant legislation gets passed and most member serving today have never really been part of a traditional legislative process. There's nobody on that hill. Who knows how it's who's seen with his own ice is how it's done now. Here's the provoke especially provocative sentence. Congress is weak because its members wanted to be week. Yeah explain that Yeah. I mean you know it's it's easy to go looking for external pressures that create this problem but I think Congress is the source of the problem and in fact. A lot of are other concerns about the government. I worry a lot for example but activist judges or about the administrative state. I think those are functions of a week. Congress congresses as left the the scene empty and judges in administrative agencies have rushed in and Congress has done on purpose because its members. Don't want the responsibility for hard choices. And they don't think of what they do fundamentally in legislative terms at this point at least many members don't they think of it in performance of terms they think of Congress as a way to be seen making the argument for the things. They're voters believe in especially to be seen making the argument against the things that frustrate their voters and a lot of it is about getting a better time slot on cable news or talk radio by getting a bigger social media following younger members in particular think of Congress in extraordinarily performed of terms. And they're not doing. The work of bargaining and accommodation compromised it is ultimately would legislation is limit. Let me try something that occurred to me as I was reading. This part of your book to impeachments nine hundred seventy two to seventy three the impeachment. Richard Nixon was never finally impeached because he stepped down before the full. House voted to impeach him. Nevertheless the impeachment proceeds proceeds pursuant to a vote of the full House Judiciary Committee that holds open. Hearings the President's council is permitted to play a role to cross examine witnesses. There are legal wrangles between the committee and the White House. They take their time for these matters to go to court and to be decided and when the Judiciary Committee does vote a recommendation of impeachment to the floor of the house it is a Republicans who vote no but it is a bipartisan. Vote impeachment number. Two of course is what we just saw doesn't take places pursuant to vote of the House but pursuant to a press conference by the speaker. It's the Intel Committee instead of the Judiciary Committee. At least at first they hold the hearings in private. The President's council excluded the vote is one hundred percent partisan. What accounts for the dance? What counts for the different? I do think a big part of it is the difference between an internal process and an external show. Though the impeachment of Richard Nixon was a process of members of Congress. Went through with each other as an institution and so they had a they had a nonpartisan staff head. Republican lawyers on the staff And they were trying to persuade each other to vote a certain way they were talking to one another. In this impeachment of president trump. Everyone was talking to an outside audience at all times. Even in those closed hearings the intelligence community. The whole point was fundamentally a performance point. I think there's a way of of of seeing this. As Congress losing its inner life. It doesn't think of itself as an institution that does its work and then goes out and talks about its work. The talking is the work and a lot of politicians. Now you know you might have said people people seek a microphone to get power and then change things. Today people seek power to get a microphone and then talk about things. And that's an institutional transformation the presidency a time to build every one of our past presidents was formed by a set of institutions formed by set of institutions as either a senior military officer or a government official. Donald Trump is the first American president. Who has not been shaped by any experience in such institutions? Close quote? Now you know that a lot of people will answer immediately. Yes and it was about time. Yeah well I I would say first of all. Donald Trump is not the beginning of this problem in the presidency He's an example of it but so is his predecessor. It's something we've seen building for a long time but I do think that the there's a way in which president trump thinks about the presidency as an outsider as a platform on which to stand and complain about the government. When the president isn't insider is the insider And and should think of himself as operating the executive branch more than speaking about it. And so this isn't. This book isn't focused on complaining about Donald Trump from it but I do think that what did what did you see. During the Obama Administration. I mean trump is Sui generis it. Let's say let's take a bomb Obama's presidency in of terms more than any of his predecessors really maybe not as much as donald trump has more than any prior president in the sense that he understood it as a place to change the culture He understood it. In terms of Away to elevate his own profile more than to work with the system he barely knew. Any members of Congress very rarely worked with the legislative branch in a way the presence generally due to advance an agenda. He used executive power in ways that we're just intended to avoid Interacting with the system in working inside and by the way part of what that's meant is that he wasn't a very consequential president because everything he did was ephemeral. It just went away when the next show came up I worry that some of that is happening now with things that I do like They're also being pursued by executive action and the Democrats are just keeping a list and they're going to go through a non do it? All as soon as they have an opportunity. The campuses shifting from the Federal Government. The campuses a time to build conservatives have clearly long been a minority of American academics but their numbers have dwindled to a tiny remnant in one thousand nine sixty nine a quarter of American professors described themselves as right of center by Nineteen Ninety nine. That figure was down to twelve percent. Recent surveys have put the number below one in ten and the situation is far worse in the social sciences and the humanities as political.

"I guess because I guess that's my way of profiting off. Parenting is what I'm doing now. I guess there's something about when you when you are a parent and you're reading books often that thought of like I've got a great idea and you make up when you make up silly stories kids especially right. Do you think can turn that into a book. Let's talk about the Book Day Nelson. Pumpkin aliens is the first one. What's the what's the kind of gist of the story? Nelson Hunt is the main character is book is in year three. He hates his school but he doesn't hide it anywhere near as much as he hates eating vegetables and his family love eating vegetables. His grandparents aren't vegetable gum and they're always sending down their award winning vegetables for Nelson's family to eight but Nelson refuses to even have one single. But he's hated thing in the world so he He's always formulating ways to get rid of the vegetables from his plate and Into the BIN or the toilet or under his bed but one night. He's grandparents come up with enough and his grandma forces him to a goal of Pumpkins and he passes out because it's the most disgusting things to do in his life but when he wakes up in the morning and he reaches for his alarm clock and hits it it smashes into paces then. He accidentally rips the cupboard door. A few of the of its hinges and he realizes that pumpkins super strength and he learns that all vegetables give him a different superpower. And so it's a book about him embracing the things that he hates the most to You know use the superpowers to save people. That are important to him and his life. That's such a cool idea. Yeah Look I love superheroes. I love comic books and I wanted to kind of write a story that was you know my mind my funny heroic origin story that kids can enjoy it. And what's the target audience as far as kids can send? I think it's like It's it's it's was the boys between six and ten but I mean actually made secretly made all of the female characters the coolest characters in the book like I love Nelson but Nelson is like a hopeless lazy teenager trapped in a Primary School aged boys body He's just like you know he doesn't want to do anything. Except play video games and stay in bed and so anyone that he doesn't really high school because he's bad at he doesn't like it is hates it because he's not his bed whereas his best friend all of is like this like ray of Sunshine Who just hangs out with Nelson? Because she finds him so funny and they can put their polar opposites. That's why their friends and then they nights the aliens in the title. There are millions in this book and the coolest alien is a princess name Rachel and of course. Nelson's grandma's about us too so yeah lots of Lots of great military characters in this book so I I definitely reckon that you boys angles would really enjoy this. I have already done episode of this podcast Code. What should we do about vegetables with Alice? Slavsky he was on Mousa Schiff Right and she was brilliant and get back and listen to haven't heard it yet but I think what I was wondering when I talk to her and she said the fact that a lot of vegetables on sold as being exciting you know and kids don't appreciate the fact that they are delicious thinks. Is there a sense what you're trying to do in these books is get kids a little bit excited about vegetables and saying that they can actually do cool things? Well I actually my kind of Englewood with with Rodney's book was to be nor moral lesson invade again. 'cause I for me like the lesson that kids should learn from the book. Is that reading rules. And they do more of it. Yeah so I don't. I don't need to cram all the lessons down their throats and I don't want Nelson to be like so you see Nelson.

"levin" Discussed on What Shall We Do About...?

"I guess because I guess that's my way of profiting off. Parenting is what I'm doing now. I guess there's something about when you when you are a parent and you're reading books often that thought of like I've got a great idea and you make up when you make up silly stories kids especially right. Do you think can turn that into a book. Let's talk about the Book Day Nelson. Pumpkin aliens is the first one. What's the what's the kind of gist of the story? Nelson Hunt is the main character is book is in year three. He hates his school but he doesn't hide it anywhere near as much as he hates eating vegetables and his family love eating vegetables. His grandparents aren't vegetable gum and they're always sending down their award winning vegetables for Nelson's family to eight but Nelson refuses to even have one single. But he's hated thing in the world so he He's always formulating ways to get rid of the vegetables from his plate and Into the BIN or the toilet or under his bed but one night. He's grandparents come up with enough and his grandma forces him to a goal of Pumpkins and he passes out because it's the most disgusting things to do in his life but when he wakes up in the morning and he reaches for his alarm clock and hits it it smashes into paces then. He accidentally rips the cupboard door. A few of the of its hinges and he realizes that pumpkins super strength and he learns that all vegetables give him a different superpower. And so it's a book about him embracing the things that he hates the most to You know use the superpowers to save people. That are important to him and his life. That's such a cool idea. Yeah Look I love superheroes. I love comic books and I wanted to kind of write a story that was you know my mind my funny heroic origin story that kids can enjoy it. And what's the target audience as far as kids can send? I think it's like It's it's it's was the boys between six and ten but I mean actually made secretly made all of the female characters the coolest characters in the book like I love Nelson but Nelson is like a hopeless lazy teenager trapped in a Primary School aged boys body He's just like you know he doesn't want to do anything. Except play video games and stay in bed and so anyone that he doesn't really high school because he's bad at he doesn't like it is hates it because he's not his bed whereas his best friend all of is like this like ray of Sunshine Who just hangs out with Nelson? Because she finds him so funny and they can put their polar opposites. That's why their friends and then they nights the aliens in the title. There are millions in this book and the coolest alien is a princess name Rachel and of course. Nelson's grandma's about us too so yeah lots of Lots of great military characters in this book so I I definitely reckon that you boys angles would really enjoy this. I have already done episode of this podcast Code. What should we do about vegetables with Alice? Slavsky he was on Mousa Schiff Right and she was brilliant and get back and listen to haven't heard it yet but I think what I was wondering when I talk to her and she said the fact that a lot of vegetables on sold as being exciting you know and kids don't appreciate the fact that they are delicious thinks. Is there a sense what you're trying to do in these books is get kids a little bit excited about vegetables and saying that they can actually do cool things? Well I actually my kind of Englewood with with Rodney's book was to be nor moral lesson invade again. 'cause I for me like the lesson that kids should learn from the book. Is that reading rules. And they do more of it. Yeah so I don't. I don't need to cram all the lessons down their throats and I don't want Nelson to be like so you see Nelson. You should have been eating vegetables all along like every book ends. And he's like cool vegetables helped me save the day but there's still a west things ever refused eight but my kids both love vegetables. I love vegetables so this. This isn't some weed grudge that I harbour against them. I definitely agree that They so rarely presented to kids in an exciting way. So I I do.

"To hurt the people in the near you at the same time you have this urge to show off and impress people and and to gain acclaim and fame and glory and money and etc. But we understand that we're on the dance floor We have a role to play. That role to play is a very powerful idea. Renaissance recently called the story of my life. And I think I see justice in there that we see ourselves as the hero of some great narrative and that that is often saves us and but often causes us to do things that not so not so You know kind and Get might be better to think of ourselves. As being part of an ensemble a a role. That's not the starring role a role. That's maybe cooperative a role that's ties people together a role that listens to what the other percents to say. Rather than trying to think of what you want to say next. And I think that That combination of what is your role in life. What is the proper thing to do in this circumstance and It isn't all about. You is really a useful way to think about life. Generally forget about institutions Which in the state of America and the populist versus whatever just that if you want to be a productive and and kind person and have a good life you got to pay attention to this. Yeah I think that's right. It's it's very basic in a sense of course but It's enormously important to having flourishing life in a flourishing society. I think it can help to see that through the Lens of institutions because that helps us see how this becomes a big problem. Not just a challenge for US individually in our lives but a problem for society a problem for people around us we care about but ultimately this is about understanding that we That that we have a role to play in the flourishing of a larger hole here It's a very basic point is a very familiar point. And it's not something we've forgotten entirely but we need to see it more. We need to see it more often and rebalanced some of the ways we make decisions respond to some of the changes that we've had to live with and that's part of what it is to build institutions. I think Americans in general have been pretty good institution builders in times of crisis in times of need We've lost that knack a little bit and I think some of the the extraordinary Options we have now as I said before for just being effective loners Have allowed us to avoid being forced to see these things and if we see them I think it is within our reach to do something about to make things just a little better. You don't have anything against loners. Though against introverts by the way which is another thing we have these conversations. People say well. It's you know this thing about putting your phone. Well that's great for you. You're an extrovert. I'm an introvert. I like to look at my phone alone. I I've always described myself as a communitarian introvert. I believe that it is important to be part of larger Social and cultural groups. But I don't find it easy and you know that sometimes you just have to see the importance of things that you don't find easy. So yeah I I. I have nothing against introverts. I am one myself but I think we have to see that. We're not alone here as you say I guess that has been Yuval Levin. His book is a time to build. You've all thanks for being part of ECON TALK..

"All right we're back with Debbie Levin so Debbie I WANNA. What is a carbon footprint? It's like this thing in your hand so the very easy explanation is that we everything that we're doing industrialized for industrialized nation puts carbon into the air. When we have trees the trees take our carbon and they keep it for themselves. They keep that away from us because carbon is good for the trees but whether they've been put out is the oxygen that we need right now. Our carbon is fighting with our oxygen. Because we don't have enough tree because we don't have enough trees have and we have an industrialized society right where we are an an a fossil fuel based economy so whether it's plastics or whether it's your gas or whether it's all coming from fossil fuels there are a million percent technologies that we could stop this tomorrow and jobs and so we need to do is we need to understand that. We're looking for a sustainable economy. That's going to bring our our economy so that we are using more electric we're using we're using There's different powers that we have with water ride euro-power there's obviously solar. That can do everything instead of going to gasoline products as I go to which is going to run out eventually anyway. You also it's dirty. It's still it's not okay right. We've got wind turbines. We're all this technology and we've got jobs waiting in those in those sectors so it's really a matter of for us also being really careful who you vote for. Read what they stand for. So when you vote vote for sustainability understand that this is across the board from president down. Yeah is that. What do they think about the environment? What are they doing are they? For new technologies are they for sustainable technologies. And so that's a hugh you have so much power. We all have so much power to make changes every single day. Yeah and so you know if you get into carbon offsets and all that other fancy carbon words. Don't worry about that worry about making sustainable choices every day and you are automatically reducing your carbon footprint. Perfect well. I mean the economy will take a hit from this from the loss of nature. The economy is taking a hit. Because we're not actually listening to the technologies that we have now right. And what if you didn't have your iphone right and we were still dialing up on a rotary phone right and we couldn't communicate the way we could or have the information that we have. It's the same thing right. We have all the new technologies to get us into a place where not only are we preserving our planet but we're preserving ourselves so what do you think is the holdback? Why is there so much resistance to this? I mean do you feel like there is it? Just become really politicized. I don't know why because the earth and our health is not politicised right and so the reality is there's jobs that we are losing just because they're just old fashioned and that happens but we've got so many new jobs available in all these tech centers sectors where it's energy it's Food. I mean think about you've got beyond Burger impossible. Meet that eat like a hamburger and so there's so much there's there's a new tunafish one coming out. There's there's so many things that are happening right now. That are all innovator. Jobs looking corporations and saying we want to help you like we're doing with H. M. The automotive industry is huge. We've been working with Toyota Motor sales literally our start twentieth anniversary. Actually weren't you the one that put the Prius on the map? We were yes we met them. It's huge and you made it popular for celebrities. We do dry them. Which in turn you mean. That's the cash cow right there once the celebrities you something everybody else wants to you. It's been an amazing journey to be honest because talk about like first steps. A car was the first thing. I better by environmentalists leader because I was driving like not a good car. Ride a bike right but that wasn't as realistic L. And didn't want a little little not safe so I went and I. I met Toyota and I was buying a Prius because I have to do this and I actually was corporate it. Was You know the big corporate North America? Toyota and I said you know this is really cool. First of all it's affordable and second of all It looks different so people can be identified and say. I'm making a difference. I think I can get you all the celebrities in Hollywood and I can even get them to arrive at award shows in them and we can talk about it. No idea what I was doing. You believe they said okay. Yeah and that's like shit now. I have to do it and it was an amazing experience. It's still we've worked with them with their fuel cell technology which is incredible. They're going to be all electric twenty. Twenty-five they are honestly the best car company in terms of everyone is doing this. And Right I'm like copying and is the best form of flattery in the world especially as a sustainable human being absolutely But they were really the ones who put their necks out and said we believe in this technology and we are environmentalists to the core as a company. And so it's it's urgent for companies to take that commitment like I said like Ekos and ancient and Toyota Motor sales. And if they don't do that then there's not gonNA be product for people to buy and the product has to be completely as fantastic and work the same if not better as something comparable. That's not sustainable. And so that's what's been happening. And that's the most exciting thing that I can think of. This happening is that you have choices. You can actually be an environmentalist by shopping correctly. Right right and not like be mindful of what don't waste don't wait don't waste like don't keep buying that same white t shirt or black. Why did it no? I actually read this. I found this online food releases methane when it breaks down in a landfill and the methane intern warms. The Planet Eighty six times faster than carbon dioxide. That's mind blowing. It is and so that makes you think all that food that you just throw in the garbage you think Oh and I think the best mentality that we all have once we throw it away outta sight Outta mind but we're destroying our planet. We are doing it. Why just doing those little tiny things that we think are harmless? But it's destroying our plan and you of the power every day. Yes you helping your planet and human being absolutely well. That's yeah I feel like now. I want to go and buy everything. That's not flashing question though so if we do already have plastic in our possession just put it in the recycle that that's the best we can do. We really there's there's huge industries of clothing and Re for recycling existing plastic. It's clothing it's other items that we call plastic. It's reusable everything and that's something that we don't we don't want to you know perfect world. Add to the pile of trash right but we have the pile of trash. So let's turn it into fabulous new products right. 'cause right now. I still have all these old school tupperware containers do I just keep them so that I keep raising not add to the problem. Well that's true. I mean if as as we use them you have them buying them all over again but I think that actually our next job is to actually list on our website. What you do with Old Tupperware? Because you're so right. Yeah I have like three left. I've had probably for forty years. So just have them and I don't know what to do with so I just keep using right so it's really not buying new if you have something. I'm being really mindful of that okay. Perfect arc is any other last minute tips on how to not waste and to be more sustainable anything. We didn't cover that you want to. I mean I do think that you should realize how Sheikh you are by being sustainable. Oh thank you. I agree with that. We're all capable of doing it. Yes every day every day and if you screw up one day you have another you. Have you have the next minute so this is an ongoing process that you could be successful? I love that. Thank you for being here. So you motivating. Now we want to change it up for us. Ladies Gentlemen everybody listening. Just be mindful because this is our planet and we're not going to get another one so we gotta take care of it. It's the most important thing and leave it.

"She's one of the most influential people in the environmental movement and entertainment industry. Let's welcome CEO of the environmental media. Association Debbie Levin Yay. Soga or guys Danny you. This is a special episode. Yes we really. We've been talking about being environmentally friendly with our everyday life. So we're excited about this. I've heard snippets on your show. Okay yes I was very happy and very like excited that you guys were into this way before we met. Yes that's awesome. Well I think like that's just what's happening right now is everyone is realizing. Oh Shit this is bad. This is getting bad. I mean you've known this for a while right. Most changes real. It's all real so like she said we. We're we're going to need like the the handbook for dummies saw on how to do this. The Right Way. Tips and tricks Before we get into that let's go back to like your beginnings and why you even went down this road. I'm just curious. What intrigued you into this. It's kind of a random story okay. and I've been running the Organization for twenty years. This is literally my first year. Yes Environmental Media Association. You were way ahead of the game. Website is green. The number four and all of our handles instagram marine for marine for So I was actually a mom. I mean I'm still a mom and I had teenage kids and young teenage kids and I was invited to and I knew nothing about the environment. I was just really excited when they actually dropped off some little little. Been when my kids were really young at my house and said you could put stuff in here and it's separate from the garbage so I was really excited like I put newspapers in there. We were still getting every day. And I put you know whatever cans and bottles and I just thought I was like the coolest personal. But that was you were and so. I was invited in nineteen ninety nine to a very small luncheon. That was actually the the Yemeni awards it had started. We're celebrating our thirtieth anniversary which is an organization which is amazing. It's amazing how forward that was and so I sat there At at this table with people who had no idea it was it was literally a mother from school. Invited me and so I as I'm thinking about this and as I'm hearing what they're doing the idea of because our mission is to get environmental content into the media using the media to talk via pop culture right. I mean my God. This is the most brilliant thing I've ever seen in my life. We are the storytellers for the environment. They weren't doing a minimal of that at that time they were. They were working to get environmental messages into content which was great but remember nineteen ninety. Nine right NOSSA. Not even a hint of social way thing and so we. The I knew that they were doing which was great was they were talking to writers and trying to get them to put things into content. Which was incredible. I was blown away by that idea because I was a person who was not aware because at that time. Only like environmentalists. Talk to environmentalists. Rile happens a lot. Environmental groups talked to environmental groups and no one is speaking to the public to tell them what they can do. How they can be empowered and how they can actually implement. Why is that? They don't know how to speak. English right excites their scientists are saying yes there researchers litigators go do it. Our job is to tell the story voice and so I asked wdv too many questions to the guy sitting next to me. He literally asked me to go to lunch with him the next day and come run the organization. Wow I mean he. I didn't know they were sort of saying it was kind of crazy. Destiny right there for I walked into an empty office. There was no one there. There was almost no one on the board left. It was an amazing board. There was one on the board because it was it was put together by heads of studios and amazing people and had a great pedigree but it was really not there was one assistant who was basically stoned offer us. And I'm like okay here weekend and no files and I thought this was at the very beginning of two thousand and I thought you know we do what we do is. We're actually celebrating her thirtieth year of it. We do the awards and honours gala which is like the Green Oscars or the Green Golden Globes and all about content and and sustainable and environmental celebrities. And it's like this wonderful wonderful event that we do. It's an award show but it's also an honoree show and so I thought going we'll go back to that but I thought okay I've got like let's push it to December because it's like February I and I don't know what I'm doing. I didn't even notice and repeat was which is I just thought it was this thing that has logos ask in front of it. Is I know how to name. And so I said let's just push it to December and we'll figure it out and because it was gonna be the tenth one so I thought it's either amazing and it's the tenth or we don't exist and I really really tried and so bottom line is it worked We had amazing honorees. We had incredible performers. The first thing that I did do taking over in early two thousand was I was invited to a ton of environmental organizations to their events to sort of see what the what the community was like and the community was old And even I said that I thought they were really old and I had teenagers and so I thought. Oh my God this is. It was old white by the way. I thought this is just not going to work right and so I my kids were in school and I kind of literally pulled from like they had cool. Parents aren't school in Santa Monica. There was a lot of people in the industry. Some of their friends as they were getting older. We're starting to work and My my goal was to make the make environmental issues and sustainability way cooler and weighing that and And it's evolved tremendously got. There's so much to talk about but my goal has always been to be very clearly using celebrity voices influence. Our voices loud voices to be the voice for the environment that they could speak personally and as a parent I wanted to also know. How do I do this? So it's easy and I just keep my family safe. Uh-huh how are we healthy? And how do we not have toxins and chemicals in the house? Because I think that's the thing that's relatable people were talking about climate change now. Actually everybody is talking about climate change which is a conversation but nobody wanted to know about what those words were when they wanted to know was how can afford to keep my kids safe. What do I feed them in what away? Because that's their world and it should be And so for for us and for me and I think that that everything and so I always approached it looking at somebody in in the way that I want to. Just get information just like you guys. Tell me what to do so that I understand what this process is and how I can be better and also really in terms of process really forgiving and knowing that everybody is on the path and no one is done right. No one is done. I don't care who you are. You're not done. It doesn't stop does not and we applaud every step of the way right and you are just as kick ass on step three as you are on step four hundred three step in the right direction. It's an awareness. Yes so this is something that you know. This is sort of how it's informed the organization and we're an organization now that has incredible celebrities. I'm sure you've looked at our board. Jaden Smith is one of our corporate board officers which I didn't know that he started the box. Water right or what is it? Just watch which is just water so as she pushes away our plastic but I did it. Come armed with gas. I'm sorry so amazingly so we have the with the awards and honours gala every year We also have m impact. We've got program so we can talk about that. But I was told C. J. Didn't twenty-one think this was like five years ago. I was told that he had started with starting this box. Water company have. This was everything to him and he was seventeen years old. He created this like this is all him he. It was him when he was a kid in the ocean and found plastic bottles and said to incite what the hell yeah and he is so smart and so kind and so knowledgeable and so passionate and so he started this with with with his partner drew with the support of his family which is really important. His father's very involved the whole family is really involved. Easing and his vision was to have a completely recycled sustainable Barber bottle with plant based so sugar king cab coming from Natural Springs. How cool and he. They figured it out and it launched when he was seventeen. Wow and so it's amazing. And so I was connected with him. Bef- like as they were just starting to launch a and I said we need to honor you. You're seventeen years old absolute and we have a future award for people. Who are you know on their road to you know environmental greatness and it's been everyone from Ian Summer Halder Shalin Woodley to you? Know we have all these amazing people that we've honored and so he and I got along on the phone. Wake me like I just like. This kid is incredible completely bonded. We ended up honoring him that year in October He came backstage and said this is the most beautiful group of people. These are like my people. And how do I joined the board and I said you just it and so he honestly he is such an important part of our organization his vision he immediately got really involved with impact which we can talk about He's amazing. And then we have other people like Lance Bass who also has a podcast who lance has been involved with us for fourteen years. Wow Atlanta's are co-chair and lances like he was this kid from in sync from Mississippi who didn't have a clue and we met at an event of small event that we did and he's like what. I don't know any of this but the sounds amazing. And you know these are babies and are this is the future so this is we. Our job is really to be able to speak to the public in a way. That's really relatable and now using social media post a gift I mean it's all you're doing it all the way it should be done because that's the way to get especially to younger generations especially having. Jaden on your side on your team that he's the perfect example. Yeah so impactful. Because they'll listen to him. I'm does it. There's nothing like literally. He's like running around doing shows. And then he's like texting me about some guy who should speak at one of our events. And so he's like he's passionate. Yes passionate yes. Wow that's incredible. Es So w what was your first personal step in the right direction. Like what was the first thing you did at home to change question? I WANNA know because I'm making personal changes that blocks straws all of that stuff so I want to know your I I mean. I think the first thing was recycling. Because it's so easy you could just everybody just.

"levin" Discussed on The Long Run

"Jeremy Levin Chairman of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization. Welcome thanks for joining me today on the long run. Thanks Luke appreciate you having me. So Jeremy is you know on the show the long run. I liked to go through people's whole life history before I get to their moment possibility and the interesting things that they're doing in their companies for the case of you. I'M GONNA throw up that model and I'm going to point people to a previous podcast. You did with nature. Biotech Co first rounders. Where you talked about your life story one a for people to that because today I want us to talk about your role as chairman of bio and some of the major issues facing the industry. But before I go into that I do want listeners. To know that you're a man of substance You grew up in South Africa and beard escaped apartheid. Your Dad was a journalist who opposed the apartheid regime and that took a moral compass and some courage to follow one's convictions. And I think there's a through line there in your life and so this is a very important conversation that we have today about democracy the role of the pharmaceutical industry and society. So thank you for Georgia. Thanks Luke it's important to me. There's a line in. It stems all the way from the Northern Cape in Bata all the way through the battlefields of Israel through to this country which is a remarkable country. So I'd be delighted to do that but at the end of the day boils down to one thing you stand on principle because nothing else matters and this industry has some principals it really does. It has a lot of capacity for good. You're you're training the scientists and a physician and now you're out there working hard to create medicines off but the the wider world does not appreciate this. This is the moment of I think existential crisis for the pharmaceutical industry. Biotech Industry How we develop new medicines. The political moment Is is is dire big. Tobacco is considered more and more positive light than what you guys do this. We run the risk of killing the golden goose and this is like on your shoulders now as the chairman to try to preserve the innovation ecosystem. So it's not so much on my shoulder as being starting in nineteen forty seven with NIH was invented essentially conceived of funded and then drove the beginnings of innovation in biology in the United States. You have a multi decade process whereby innovation a- surged in the United States. In a way that is nowhere else in the world absolutely no it is completely unparalled. Capital markets grew up around it. You had a huge scientific base. You have a medical base. You have patient expectations for new cures. We made that investment as a society coming out of World War Two was built on American exceptionalism. It win believed that we could do anything. And we would put our tax dollars to work and advance the frontiers of science maintain science and technology leadership in the world and some people would benefit in the long run. Both here and everywhere and it was a thank. You just landed on the moon. This was a moment where all possibilities were opened in a way which is absolutely wonderful and now we face a moment when we are now the parietal. We're the pariah. Because absolutely the vast majority of Americans today equate the pharmaceutical industry medicines with bad things and yet we need them. And this is tremendously important. So as I look at this and I think about how to use your woods. Existential Israeli is it is existential. You have a moment with the populace is frustrated with us that allows politicians to use this moment to actually gain advantage and in this year particularly as we go into very rancourous discussion around the presidency. Ann Elections this is a moment where you have various parties using any any possibility to gain additional votes to beat on this industry. And we've given that on a plate. We HAVE NOT. We have abrogated link that we have with patients and our primary focus on innovation. And rather we've allowed the population to think about us. Only in terms of prices opposed to what value? We've helped them and the fact that we see budgeting costs every year of all drugs. This is not acceptable. None of accepted. But I'd I'd go one step further. This is not on my shoulders. This is on the shoulders of everybody in the industry and Buddying. This industry absolutely everybody. In this industry everybody has a responsibility to take action. Everybody has to look in the mirror and realistically say Guys Gals. What did we do here? How did we lose the trust of so many people in the population and allow that to now color? What is by far the most important and fundamental factor now industry? Which is the delivery of medicine to patients? You gotta go back to basic questions or who are we. What do we do? Why do we do it? I look I one hundred percent. That's exactly right you have to. What is the purpose of this industry? I liked to say when you look at a company if that company vanished. What difference would it be? Well if our industry vanished. Well where would we be? What would the future of mankind looked like? This is what's really important. We can't allow that to be that so-called if I can use a genetic expression the delete experiment to happen but some politicians unless we actually explained teach them that delete possibility is real. It is a very real possibility if you just look at the two parties in the United States who are at war at the moment You have Medicare for all proposal a single payer system which would clearly bring Thomas crews bring it would it would bring price controls and that would dry up investment by alert. Everyone agrees now. If you go to something like a call Medicare for all who wanted. I mean he's still gonNA have a colossal powerful buyer that will become more and more powerful over time in all likelihood plus the consolidation of large private. Insurers as you alluded to in your talk earlier today you could live under a world of monopoly. Like an Amazon has imposed deflationary economics. You Know Walmart Costco. All these like giant Colossus that dry over the economy pharmaceuticals hasn't hits live under such. Aw owners terms. Those are a couple of different options under the Democrats and Republicans are talking about indexing to international prices which would in effect have pretty similar kind of effect. I don't know who's going to save the industry from this kind of fate of being reduced to surplus so I think the factors note is GonNa save us except ourselves. This is a moment where every single individual in the industry needs to know that they actually do have power. They do the authority they do speak with a passion and they have a right to say what they need to say and say loudly but he has his kiss thing there are ill conceived notions like I P I where you're trying to compare the pricing in Turkey with the pricing in Minnesota. I can't imagine for a minute that any sensible politician can allow something like that to happen. It just simply something which is incredibly difficult to conceive of the complexities of the one party states. The one bias states in Europe. Do not compare to what we have here. If you however having said that we've also allowed something to grow up and that is the intermediaries between the innovators the companies large and small. Find new medicines and the patient so we have the WHO are not adding incremental value. They'd taken added slice. You only have to look at the price of The net to gross and we keep on talking about net to gross. This is absurd net to gross on automobile net. Kenna somebody imagine a net to gross of an automobile. Let's get down to that. Would you every year? Cnn increment in price. Let's say let's take an importer drug an import a drug. This'll be called. It's called it. A folks walking that folks log. Every year increases its price the same model the nineteen sixty six model every year to now. Increase it by five percent and oh by the way. The vaas bulk of that five percent price increase goes into the pockets of somebody else. Besides the manufacturer of the folks right we conceive of that. It's it's dysfunctional. It makes us. It makes no sense and it's hard case to make people don't understand this. They just know that they're paying more and they're not getting more. That's the prices are going up in our overall health as a society or using individual stock. Getting better that is correct worse yet by doing this when they go to the pharmacy to decide. What is the medicine that they should choose? And should they pay out of their pocket? Full that mets in which they desperately need all should they consider saving that money to buy something a new automobile or buying dinner or something like that. Can THEY AFFORD IT? The whole concept of being able to afford your medicine that will prolong and make your life. Productive goes away. That dialogue is critical. And we need to take a really concerted efforts to reduce the cost of out of pocket. We have to look with obscenity. We have patients rationing their insulin. Is We have cancer patients and their families going bankrupt. We have just ordinary medicines being with no additional innovation being priced at nine ten percent increases every six months so in paying just so much more in its permanent patents. Pretty much on a lot of biologics that have been have been doing this for twenty years and I thought the patents would expire on some of these pioneering medicines of the nineteen nineties. They're still there making billions and billions of dollars. Biosimilars not coming along. I mean people have their upset and rightfully saal in many many cases. And what that that moment that time when you that anger bubbles up obscured something really fundamental? It's what is happening right now in the industry is that you have all of these new curative medicines coming up and instead of having the debate which is okay which is important. How do we afford to pay for those medicines and bring the value that they bring and cure the disease that we cure? We're having the debate to that. That's too expensive. That is not the right debate. But it's colored by this history of some of these drugs going on forever and never never others having price rises every year where there's no incremental value and that's not helpful and this as you say it's the best of times and worst of times. The best is that the science has never been better. We've got the cell therapy's gene therapies all kinds of under underpinning information about the biology. It's never been better understood. Rare diseases are suddenly. That had no option before looking more tractable. We're looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars or a million dollar price tags. But we don't in the system as you say that that can logically look at how much we really ought to pay and get to sell kind of fair price that rewards the innovator but also ensures maximum access. It's a balance we've got a strike and we're not. We're doing a terrible job of its lucrative. It's not a good job at the moment. We're we're constantly battling and the wrong question there are. It doesn't matter whether you're a small company or allowed or a big company they both basically. Today it's one industry effectively but the array of medicines that each of these different parties brings to the table often differs so the question is how can we get a politicians to understand that across this array of different companies there is an enormous amount of value being generated and that that values critical actually? I would argue. It's critical to democracy. You can't have a population which is democratic in awful more than not getting the medicines they need. That's just doesn't make sense so with regard to the perpetual franchises. Look we need to actually take a couple of things we have to congratulate the FDA? I think it's really important. We do that because they have made steps to facilitate changes that have been critical however in the past systems. We really need to tackle that frontally. They are not letting the introduction of many of these new biologics that are out there. And there are there if we do not solve for the biologics. Now we face something even more important as time goes on the biologics that you've seen in I've seen for the last twenty years did not become biosimilars. Are going to laying the groundwork for what's GonNa Happen. When we have gene therapies. What's going to happen? We have carty therapies. What will happen? When the second and third generation new biologics come on and now patents expire Ernie million dollar drugs we. We need to tackle and understand how we'll deal with us at this time because if we don't we just possible down. The anger will grow and indeed. The industry won't be able to show its true value to the society so I would appeal to those who really developing these incredible medicines to really think about that because if we don't every sector of society will defected and I can assure you the cures that are possible today in cancer would never be at. We have faced the and the cures. That should be present..

"levin" Discussed on The Ezra Klein Show

"Like this is a point that people like James Wallner Megan and others but if people wanted to disrupt Congress so that you know Michael Bennett and Mitt. Romney just came out with a very good. I think Basic income for children. BILL IS A. It is a bipartisan. Tax Bill that is the first like really good piece of bipartisan legislation. I've seen in a minute and the two of them have plenty of possibilities for leverage. Like if they wanted to force a vote on that bill all I expect they will not. I think it has great with it. I do not want them on. The microscope is here. They are doing something good. But there's a lot of things that come up like that where I look could I think well. Why don't you just force it? I mean we saw how few members of the House it took to basically forced John Bainer out of the speakership. You did not need more than a couple dozen tea. partiers has to keep calling the question on him and their ways to do Discharge petitions and other things. There's a lot of going along to get along in Congress. The amount of time members of Congress spend complaining about raising money will they could change it. they could change that works and they don't in part because they benefit from some of it in part because they're worried about what will happen if they stat align but it is like it is very hard listening to them to at least hold my belief in members of Congress individual actors because they end end up they sound like individuals when you talk to them and then they act like automatons when they turn away from you the expressions of party enforces. And maybe I've just over absorbed that lesson. That's why my book is so much about institutional forces as shakedown individual decision-making but it's just made me very pessimistic. Like nothing will make you more optimistic about the possibility ability for change the talking to some members of Congress about how much they hate how things are and then nothing will make you less optimistic about it. A seeing what happens after you walk away from that conversation. Well I I think I would temper that a little bit with with some patience and some history I I worked on Capitol Hill in the late. Nineteen nineties which in some ways was completely different world One of the striking things to me about members now is actually just how few of them were. There are thin and have seen any form of Congress other than this one so that the point you make which I think is right that they could change. It is not actually obvious to them a lot of the time I think genuinely isn't the idea so part of what I've been doing with a small group of people with members on the right is talking to them lately about nineteen forty six reforms of the House and Senate which were very dramatic fundamental reforms of the committee system of the budget process basically intended to rebalance the relationship between Congress and the president were Congress got tired of just being pushed around by by strong presidents and the members at that point. Just did that because they could and you could do it now. You could change the budget process now very easily you could. You could recreate it from scratch. Various Union majorities. But but the the idea that you even could is not top of mind. For a lot of members I think they take the present the status quo to be the default and therefore to be the only imaginable way for this institution to work and they try to work within those boundaries. The idea that institutional reform is possible. The idea that it's possible by simple majority votes is not an obvious fact to these folks and I think that's part of the of the Of of the dynamic that you describe it's also the case that these things take time. I think you have to be dissatisfied for a long time before you really take action and you have to be dissatisfied through some series of changes particularly changes in leadership in Congress leadership has been pretty stable in Congress for a while unusually so and so I I. Don't I think that we've seen for example. What the next generation of Republican leadership in the Senate could involve if you think about the members who that leadership might consist of who are now now in their forties say? There are a lot of Republican senators in their forties. Early Fifties Those people are very dissatisfied with this situation. They're generally I'm really aware of some of the dynamics. Enforces it. We're talking about and they might be inclined to do things differently. I I think there are some people with that kind of mindset among Democrats to and the dissatisfaction is just something to work with. So I you know I think change takes time but that time can't just be spent waiting. It has to be spent filling the space with the premise premise. That change is possible. And that's that's part of what I'm trying to do here. There is an optimistic point that all agree with which is if I'm trying to see how things things are different. It isn't because I think that you can just draw linear line from what's going on right now to everything being a lot better it is. I think a lot of changes generational racial that things that seemed to be slow efforts of persuasion actually really aren't there cohort replacement and the next cohort. Billy something very different or grew up in something very different and I think you see it among young people on the left. I think you see it at different ways among people on the right. I think you're right that a lot of pretty younger members of the right in the Senate are clearly coming out of a very different milieu. And I think that's true among young members of the left in the house So there is something that is clearly going to be different front when these groups take more power Whether it'd be different for better or worse I think we're GonNa have to see That that's the other inside but it could change. That is a very very very important dynamic in our politics right now you know. Donald Trump was born in June of Nineteen forty-six George W Bush was born in July of nineteen forty six wchs and Bill Clinton's born August of nineteen forty six and a lot of the people who are in power in our politics were born within a few months a few years of that very peculiar moment in American history. The older baby boomers have exercised a lot of power for a long time and they Zeh have certain views of things. Certain expectations certain default assumptions. We should not underestimate the significance of generational change In our politics and the on the right as you say it's very very evident among members of Congress in general but especially in the Senate where there is a generation that is just not not as much in awe of Reaganism as the boomers are and it thinks differently about the circumstances of the country then in some ways is a lot more at home in twenty first century America than than the president and the Fox News viewer. The median age will Fox News viewers less Jewish sixty eight. The median age. So I I think there is a very very important generational factor. Here that will make a difference. A- It's impossible for me at least say exactly how but I think we shouldn't assumes as you say a straight line gets a good place to come to a close so let me ask you. It's all it's our closing question. which is what if your books? You've read the recommended. The audience well inclination is to go for classics I'm not entirely sure that these aren't exactly the same three books that I recommended. Last time I was on a few years ago It would be neat if they are actually but I I would say everybody needs to read democracy. Democracy in America Alexis de Tocqueville's very famous and familiar classic which is probably less familiar than people. Imagine and full of a lot of wisdom about are kind of situation are kind of time time A second book recommend is called. The quest for community was written by a A mid twentieth century sociologist who who Made an argument that we now would associate with their own time. And that we now think wouldn't actually been true in the fifty zero to nine hundred fifty three And makes the case about the importance of community in a free society in an individualistic society. That is just enormously league consequential and relevant to our time now my my book. My new book is full of quotes from Robert and his. But this the author of the quest for community because Whoa it's impossible to read that book and not think that it is about twenty first century America that was born nineteen fifty-three written nineteen fifty-three very highly recommended. The third is probably the book that shaped me. Most as I started to think about politics in my late teens early twenties. And that's a book by George or Jeff Wilpon. Cold Statecraft is so craft A book that is really about the ways in which politics is unavoidably formative and it seeing that can help you make sense of some very complicated social and political questions An enormously important book to me a short book made of basically what we're a few lectures and again very highly recommended. You've all Evan. Thank you very much. Thank you thank you all for being here. Those a lot of fun. I hope you all enjoyed it. His book again is a time to build. Thank you for being here again. My book is why were polarized. You should preorder if you haven't already. You should check out the tour dates if you.

Now, do you think the New York Times book review page, and those who are cloistered in the shadows? At the New York Times what my book number one on the New York Times bestseller list. The answer's no. And they're going to do everything they can to make sure that that doesn't happen.

It's almost like a campaign. Unfortunately. They want Michelle Obama to win. I got it. They want the book on the supermarket to win. I got that too. This is a very very important book. Not because I wrote it because it's very important confronts. It addresses the issue of freedom of the press, and what's happening in this country, right before your eyes. It is a propitious thing that this book is coming out. Now, it wasn't playing that way. I've spent a year on it. And it exposes them their history their conduct their ideology.

"Levin. Mark Levin radio show. I was just thinking during the break. I mean, if you listen to the propaganda over the last several months in this election. The governor elect to Florida was a racist to Santa's the governor elect of Georgia's racist camp. I believe the Senator elect who's the current Senator in Mississippi. She's a white supremacist. And so basically any conservative any Republican? Is a racist. They white supremacist unless they're of the John casick. Ben sasse. Flake variety, which is why they are the way they are. And they kowtow to the left. And of course, Trump forgot Bernie Sanders gives it up when it comes to climate change what they're really up to not that you need him to tell you. But it underscores it cut six go. You know, what the intergovernmental panel on climate change said that if we don't get back together within twelve years, not a long period of time is going to be irreparable harm to this fire. So the point is the American people have got to stand up and say that for the sake of their children and their grandchildren. We have got to have to take on the greed of the fossil fuel in. There you go. The greed the prophets at the fossil fuel industry and give it to government. Ladies and gentlemen, how many more failed human experiments in socialism and Marxism? Do we really need? And when you point to them they point somewhere else. Air look over there over there. The problem is you can't contain this stuff. Look what's going on in Venezuela. Local it goes on and Cuba. Look, what goes on in these major societies, you know. Our country and liberty. It's not guaranteed to survive in perpetuity. It's not. It requires a virtuous people and virtuous politicians. This is not a virtuous politician. He's a carnival Barker. And yet he's given the platform even though he's kind of a freak politically. Oh, I should change that he was kind of a freak politically. But more more the democrat party is moving in his direction. And so what he wants to do all these decades, we talked about energy independence. We need energy independence and through American know-how, including two fossil fuel companies. That's right. I'll say it all companies. We finally reached that point. It's great for our economy. It's great for a national security, excuse me. But it's not good enough. Now, we have to destroy it off the work walk around with a battery warming socks and propellers on our head. You know, when Bernie Sanders campaigns that way, I'll think about it. But I don't I don't think he he has that intention Bob, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, great WTI cue. Go. All right, Mark, thanks for taking my call. And this is kind of on a last topic not so much on the environmental issues, but I'm reading a book by David McCullough. Which is about eighteen years old already two thousand one I believe about about John Adams. And I've I've just noticed a correlation that, you know, a lot of people think that this is all new if the parties can't get along and everything else and all the while in animus was serving Jefferson was accused of being a monarchist. And while he was dealing with France at the same time goes way back, but I just noticed a correlation. Dad, I'll tell you the difference. I'll tell you the difference. The left because of all these decades now of being on more from the constitution wants to use government to devour, the civil society Jefferson and Adams had very serious disagreements, but fundamentally they embrace the same principles. That's not the case today. You agree. It's different. I do agree. It's very different today. We have people who really want to transmute or transform this country into something that is that is quite diabolical..

"Levin radio show. Mark levin. Now, let's think about something as rational people. Let's stipulate that three thousand people perished. Last year as a result of those hurricanes in Puerto Rico. How is it? Donald Trump's fought. See the arguments seems to be that FEMA didn't act quickly enough or the weren't enough resources. Well, how do we know? How do we know? People weren't swept away in their cars are swept away out of their homes. When the hurricanes hit the ocean waters. Rose. How do we know people didn't die because from from the roofs caving in their homes. Do we know how many of those people perished as a result of a lack of clothing or water or food or shelter? Or medical attention. Because that's basically what FEMA does. We have no idea in each case. How any of these poor souls perished? There's no study on that. Then I'm aware of they point to this study. And well, I mean the study says it's approximately three thousand okay? It's a horrible number. So horrible disaster. But I am asking. How is it? Donald Trump's fall. Exactly, what was it that had to be done that wasn't done. We don't know. We don't have any idea. I seriously doubt the vast majority of those people perished because of a lack of FEMA resources. I suspect most of those people perished early on. When the Broncos hurricanes slammed into that island. But the media don't help us discern anything. It's a mud fight. In the middle of another hurricane. Now, the president didn't trigger this fight the Democrats and the media one in the same. They triggered the fight. They trade the fight because they're trying to destroy this guy. They do it all the time. No matter what occurs. Braga. Obama was never blending for damn thing. All they say, you see the Republicans don't agree that there's climate change. And these hurricanes wouldn't be happening in these lives wouldn't die and everybody nods their head up and down over Google and everywhere. Yeah. Yeah. That's right. That's right. Which is insane. Absolutely insane. Katrina happens a New Orleans and President Bush is blamed playing for what? He wasn't managing that city for thirty years. Funneling money where money shouldn't have been funneled. And people perished it was horrible. But how was that George Bush's fault? Well, they didn't react fast enough. They are active pretty fast. I don't believe we've ever seen anything like that. First of all female is not the first responder responder. If you're going to blame politicians, which is awful enough, quite frankly, then why wouldn't you be blaming the local mayors her on the ground? Why wouldn't you be blaming the governor? Why wouldn't you be blaming those people? Since it is they who live there every single day. Since it is they who raise the taxes to pay for local municipal. Infrastructure and so forth. Why wouldn't they be the ones you're blaming? If you have to find somebody to blame. How is it? The president's responsibility for what took place in Puerto Rico. He didn't run the public electric utility. It didn't run the water system. He wasn't in charge of the bridges and the roads structure, he wasn't in charge of their various floodwalls and so forth in Puerto Rico. And yet it's on him. All day long all day long. And then. Having triggered this kind of a truly poisonous debate truly awful debate in the middle of a hurricane. Then the people who trigger it. Claim the target of their venom the president of the United States for being unpresidential. He's supposed to be like, George W Bush, just accept whatever they dish out. But he's not George W Bush, and he's not going to just accept whether he gets his numbers, right or whether he gets his numbers wrong. The fact of the matter is this three thousand number is very troubling to me. Not only and especially because of all the the human beings who perished, but that's not why these politicians are using that number. They want you to believe that Donald Trump was lazy and incompetent. And as a result of that three thousand people died in Puerto Rico ipso facto he's a racist because he doesn't care about Puerto Ricans. This is what they're saying today. Which is crazy. And yet we hear it on CNN. We hear it on MSNBC. We read it in the newspapers. And it goes on and on and on is if it's news, which is not. I don't know what to do about this. I really don't know what to do about this. It is a it is a sad fact that in the not so distant past, but we had these natural disasters or manmade disasters the nation United around the president the United States, whether he could do something about it in the short term or not. But we have a media the media that come between the nation that is the people and the president. They come between the people in the president. And then try to tell us what's taken place. And try to assign blame. And are ideologically driven. This is why none of them will come on this program because I expose them day in and day out for who they are. And what they do. They see coming tragedy like this. And they're managing editors. And there are other editors and the reporters so-called are all excited. They're getting ready for what? To blame the president. Or if you don't accept the ideology climate change. It's on your hands. This is why so many people buckled of this stuff folks, including Republicans. We have a NASA administrator. Now Breitenstein remember, Mr. producer used to come on the show, so solid conservative frat, Oklahoma. We endorsed a minutes. First race. Very nice man combat pilot. He can't say it enough. Now climate change is man made climate change is manmade climate because they beat them down and beaten them down. And now embraces it. This is the nature progressivism. This is the nature of Alinsky is..
