AOC met more than 400,000 young potential voters on their own turf: Twitch

"Holy cow On Tuesday this week, Congress person Alexandria Kaze O Cortez undertook a socially distant get out the vote effort through the streaming platform twitch. Her pitch opened the three hour plus event and closed it to first things first. If you are able to vote we are here I will vote dot com. Make sure that you make your voting plan and if you can't vote if you're under the age of 18 make sure you talk to someone that can vote and try toe direct them. Tie will vote dot com. And make sure that they get their voting plan in place. But 400,000 plus viewers hadn't pulled up posies first twitch stream to hear her pitch. They were mainly their toe. Watch her game. Oh, my God! Oh, my God. Oh, Mike, I knew it. The first term representatives first kill in the game among us, which has lately become popular among videogame streamers, some of whom joined her that evening. Rosie is that Is that weird to just call you AOC? No, Romeo. See Mike pence. OK, call me I Iove you guys. All right, though many have politicked on social media before. The old school playbook of the ground game and TV ads still dictate the 21st century campaign. But from the cove it era emerges a new playbook, according to the verge political reporter, mechanic Kelly and in that book Tuesdays Livestream marks a landmark event. McKenna. Welcome to the show. Hey, it's great to be here. So the stream was a massive success as Faras viewership goes, but it was also billed as a get out the vote effort. Do we know how successful that Wass At the peak point of the stream folks of the DNC were saying that they were getting the most referrals to the website? Two. I will vote dot com than they ever have. Do We know how money that Wass I was not able to get a specific figure. But during the vice presidential debate they bought fly will vote dot com And then when Taylor Swift Said that she was going to endorse Joe Biden they bought Taylor will vote dot com So there have been huge referrals to this link before and saying that the stream was bigger than say. That huge viral moment with the fly, and Taylor Swift, who is arguably one of the most famous celebrities in the world, says a lot Now, a lot of folks weren't going to sit through the entire thing. But there were moments that were clipped and put on Twitter or YouTube. Like when AOC talked about socialized medicine with H Bomber guy, you go to the doctor and you say I have this problem, and then they prescribe you medicine and then you just go pick it up. That's it. And then you go home. And you Google how much it would have cost in America. Oh, my God. Later he kills her. I'm actually a bit heartbroken, but, hey, life is cheap. Can you talk about that moment, so people and users on twitch our custom to diving in and out and jumping in the chat and chatting for a little bit and then maybe going watching on TV or some other video so unimportant part? Of the twitch culture is the clips function. And when people do catch something interesting those clips in those conversations Khun Go viral and reach even bigger audiences on Twitter on Facebook on YouTube than they ever could on twitch because which of course, is live. But these clips will last forever. Now. Polygon Senior Editor Patricia Hernandez wrote this week that it wasn't just about organizing and savvy. This was fandom. Those hundreds of thousands of viewers included thousands of stands, referring in this case to the AOC diehards. For people who you know, aren't as hep to the jive as I am. Stan is a term that's drawn from the title of an Eminem song. Right, Right. My girlfriend jealous because I've talked about 24 7, but you don't know him like I know you slim. No one does. You don't know what it was, like people like us growing up for me, man. I'll be the biggest fan. You'll ever lose yours, then. Yes, we could be together. When it comes Tio stand culture with pop culture and movies and television. Oftentimes people will draw fan art of their favor. Characters and people were doing that for a OSI in 2018, and she was re posting that fan art on her instagram page. So she has been building this community of people for a very, very long time. And that's why Tuesday's stream was so successful she already had this base. There are already people who stand each bomber guy. There are already people who stand Tucson piker and poking Manet and the other folks who are on there. There was just a bunch of communities colliding in a really interesting way. And then, of course,

Does Talking To Plants Help Them Grow?

"All Right Emily Kwong you are here for another microwave the. Short. Little episodes where we read some listener mail at the end. And we're talking about what science has to say and not say about plant bioacoustics and this question that I can't believe I'm asking which is does talking to plants impact their growth. It is probably the most common question I get from the public. This is Heidi apple professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of Toledo. And just to get this out of the way, there is no conclusive scientific proof. The talking to your plans helps them grow. All. Right. Every episode done Boo Boo Boo we. Hold the phone if I? It's not that simple because Heidi is one of the few people who has studied plant response to sound and she considers plants to be sentient beings. They have a sense of vision sight smell. And taste they have hearing. Scientists disagree about what language to use here I mean our plants sentient. They don't have brains. You know those kinds of questions but scientists have found evidence that plants can detect sound all life has some form of McConnell reception. Mechanical reception meaning, they can sense stimuli from their environment like touch pressure and vibration. We humans have pressure receptors on our skin and it turns out that plants can sense pressure to this is this is very cool. I'm getting into this now. Yeah. Through these special proteins called mechanical receptors that can send a signal that sets off a chain of events telling the plant, how to respond so like if a bug lands on them or something yes, and the plant will perhaps release chemical to defend itself plant panic. That's right. So these Magana receptors are really important for telling the plant what's up in its environment and plant scientists think these McKenna receptors may play a role in helping plants, pick up vibrations including the vibrations caused by sound. You know sound waves we've known for a long time that plants can respond to single tones or even music. And they can respond by growing a little differently or their seeds may germinate at a different rate. But we never understood why they would do this. Why would they have this capability and that's where my work with collaborator Rex Co crowd at the University of Missouri comes in. So few years ago. Heidi Rex put together a little study asking if a plant will respond to vibrations in their environment and the vibration they chose to test was caused by a Caterpillar shoeing. What an adorable experiment munch up the leaves of the plant, specifically a mouse ear cress which Heidi had growing in the lab. and. These vibrations are super subtle. The the leaf sometimes moving like one ten thousand of an inch as the Caterpillar bites down. Brexit Heidi played the vibration, the vibration of the nominee caterpillar right back to other crush plants who had not been munched on at all, and then expose those same plants to real. Caterpillars. And measured their chemical response and the plants that had heard the recording beforehand produced more insect defense chemicals Oh so like playing the sound before the real caterpillar primed the plants. Yeah. This experiment show that plants pre exposed to the sound of Human Caterpillar produced a different response more plant panic if you will. Yes I will which suggested you know that plants these plants are sensitive to the sounds of this Predator the Caterpillar and then they tested other vibrations on the plant wind other insect eating noises that were not as threatening and when you know the plants did not respond like chemically they didn't respond. Correct. So okay. So does that mean they have? For lack of a better term selective hearing more like selective responding. Okay. Plants do respond to sound but only to sounds they've evolved to respond to if that makes sense. In, this case a Caterpillar Chewing Gotcha. Okay. So Caterpillar chewing. Yes. But what about a human voice? Well, that hasn't been comprehensively tested. Okay and Heidi thinks it's not likely a plant will be experiencing. No as in the sense of wind or a bird or a singing and Tamala gist. You, but they will they will be tuned to only the things that are important to them. Right, and and we don't know if one of those things is a human voice. We also don't know the. Of what they detect and we don't know if they'd have a reason to respond. So should you talk to your plants? Sure. Why not is it going to help them grow better your voice alone? No I don't think it's going to however. If you connect emotionally with your plant, better because you're talking with them, that means you're probably going to take better care of it, and therefore we're talking to your plants indirectly could

I Disagree with the Second Agreement and I Hope You Take It Personally by TK Coleman

"I disagree with the Second Agreement and I hope you take it personally by tk Coleman of tk. Coleman DOT COM. I like to think in terms of alternatives not absolutes that is instead of adopting an either or logic for problem solving and goal achievement prefer to think in accordance with both and strategies. For example, let's consider the notion of taking things personally self help author. Don Miguel Ruiz has done a magnificent job at popularizing and articulating what is often referred to as the second agreement. Here's a summary of the idea in Ruis. His own words quote whatever happens around you don't take it personally nothing other people do is because of you what is because of themselves all people live in their own dream in their own mind. They are a completely different world from the one we live in only take something personally we make the assumption that they know what is in our world and we try to impose our world on their world and quote. I think that's a very useful idea and I found myself in some pretty lengthy discussions where I've defended it to people who absolutely to test this concept teaches own. I suppose. But as for me, my life has been a heck of a lot easier since I started practicing the second agreement as a critical thinker however, I like to keep my options open. Rather. Than treating ideas like the second agreement as dogmas to be believed in a regard them as value neutral conceptual tools whose usefulness varies with context. Sometimes I like taking things personally even when I know I'm not being personally attacked I deliberately choose to act as if I am being conspired against I usually use this idea as a psychological trick for motivating myself. As long as I can employ the take it personally technique in a way that's healthy and isn't obsessive. I derive great practical value from it. Anyone who's ever played competitive spores probably understands concept very well choosing to look at your competition as the enemy or the bad guys can be an invigorating experience. One of my favorite ticket personally stories comes from Michael Jordan before a soldout contest between the New York Knicks and their rivals the Chicago Bulls Knicks, coach Jeff Van Gundy accused Michael Jordan of being a con man who deliberately X. friendly towards opposing players in order to soften them up and gain a competitive edge over them. Van. Gundy's harsh words were printed in Chicago newspaper and Jordan. saw them before the game. He took it personally and decided to play with a chip on his shoulder for the entire game Jordan had a personal vendetta to show van Gundy just how capable he was having a great game without being nice to his opponents. He did exactly what he set out to do by scorching the Knicks for a red hot one points and one point in the game after hitting an important basket Sharon looked at Van Gundy and yelled at him. One of Jordan's team as reported that Michael Love to us, criticism and hatred as a way of motivating himself a sports commentator who knew of this habit predicted that Jordan would score fiftypoints simply because he would be fired up. I've Angolans words. US, right. Jordan took it personally and brought the best out of him interestingly enough. Here's what Jordan said after the game quote. Guess I. Didn't make any friends out there tonight Jordan smiles I. Think those words were more geared to motivating his players but I don't think on the court they have befriended me, I don't go on the court expecting to make friends. But when I leave the court, I don't take what happened on the court away from me. We're only playing a game. I don't view it as a war away from the game and quote. In a video clip. Jordan talks about how he used that moment as motivation while not letting it get to him in an unhealthy way. Jordan disagreed with the second agreement and it worked does illustrates one of my favorite metaphors for life life a game. As an all games achieving one's goals requires the use of effective strategies. A good strategist is one who remains flexible. He uses what works without ever feeling the need to assign the status of costal truth to any of the strategies in his playbook. If taking it personally works good strategists takes it personally if taking it personally leads to stress and self destructive preoccupation with what others think then it strategist stops to him personally. This attitude of philosophical flexibility can be extended to issues and belief systems. Ideas are just tools sometimes are useful. Sometimes are not which ideas of you when you use them, and how you react to the results is your job to sort out as you sorting through the ever enlarging buffet of ideas being offered in the marketplace be should remember the admonition of Terence McKenna quote nobody smarter than you and quote. You know more about what's best for you than anyone else. So don't take anybody's ideas dogmatically specially now mind think critically about everything. Then take what works for you and leave the rest.

So they decided to take it out on your kids, but it's worse than actually. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel or anybody else's making it. They didn't just take it out on kids who are. Choosing optional in-person education, they took it out on kids who are also in virtual education in the Kenosha School district could not find subs for fully half. The classes including. Kids who are taking virtual. Education but who cares about the kids, right?

California Coronavirus Testing Problem Prompts Resignation Of Public Health Official

"Top health officer suddenly resigned this in the wake of a glitch in the counting of the Corona virus numbers, and she had been on the job less than one year, But Dr Sonya Angel has quit. She announced her resignation in an email to her staff. Just recently, the data seemed to show that the number of new Corona virus cases was starting to fall. But then came word. Of a technical glitch, leaving the numbers in doubt. Jack Pitney, a political science professor at Claremont McKenna College, thinks the glitch probably had something to do with Dr Angels resignation. And he thinks the governor will take a hit in his poll numbers. The partial reversal on the shutdown with continuing rate of cases, and now this, I wouldn't be surprised if public opinion got some more. Ah got more negative. In a statement, the governor thank Dr Angel for her service to the state during the global pandemic. He's expected to give his Corona virus update at noon today. John Baird

"The Vicki McKenna show I do want to just point out in there now, a couple of articles news articles written about this but as the day ticks by additional law enforcement agencies are announcing that they are not going to be enforcing governor either is latest emergency declaration and Masks Mandate i. saw one about an hour ago from the Brown County Sheriff's department. Here is the Mo Managua Police Department I'm GonNa read just a portion of an aqua police department statement just because it's funny. The monopoly police department lacks the resources needed to enforce governor. Order, mandating the wearing of masks and ton. Of Managua. Taking this into consideration, we will not enforcing the governor's order that mandates the wearing of masks starting August, first two, thousand twenty nor will we be responding to complaints about mask violations? What would you do if you see someone not wearing a mask? Even if you think they should be nothing some people. Have conditions or circumstances that would make a cloth face mask covering difficult or dangerous just where your mask and stay six feet away from them. I have rick asked some Bergen from Wisconsin, Institute for Law and Liberty to talk about the actual order itself not the details of the order. But whether or not this order is lawful Rick Berg welcome to the program. Thanks for having man good. I'm glad I can hear you. Okay. I'm broadcasting remotely people so anything can happen. So it seems in the last time we talked about this, which was a bit of time ago that if Tony wanted to extend his emergency order which expired in sixty days beyond sixty days, he needs approval from the legislature. He did not seek approval from the legislature. It seems if you read the order that it seems like this is an extension just simply. Portions of the other order tweet So this does look like an extension and furthermore whether he you know he got permission from the legislature to do this or not. It does seem like the legislature can pretty easily dispatched with this if they want to. Yeah. Both of those things are true I. You know the governor has the ability to a public health emergency under our law. But that ability is strictly time limited. You can declare this emergency for sixty days. The legislature can resend it during the sixty days if he wants, but you can only declare for sixty days as governor. Legislature. Extended for another sixty days but they did not do that in this case, and so he declared a public health emergency, the public health emergency expires. He's now operating under the fiction that he can declare a new public health emergency but. If. The courts were allowed to allow him to do that. They would in effect read the time limit out of the statue. Because he's declaring his public health emergency in July based upon an outbreak of cold, he declared his public health emergency in March based in a break of Kobe, cove it never went away You know the infections went up went down went up went down as one might expect to happen. But to say that this isn't essentially dealing with the same crisis that we've been dealing with the last four months it seems to me as just a fiction it's I made up and and I don't think anybody ought to take. That seriously. All right except that it's being treated as if it should be taken seriously and you have one house, the Senate saying we're ready to call a special session and pass a joint resolution rescinding Iverson Authority, which is also empowered under statute three, twenty, three, dot ten. The legislature can reject this overtly without requiring the governor's signature, but you have the other house saying we think citizens groups are going to be suing over this. It seems to me that one takes a lot longer than another although perhaps both of them. Might be useful. So I I mean to have the verse administration slapped back by the courts could be useful. But at the same time, as that goes forward, the legislature is going would then wait on a special session to rescind the order. Well you know I. I can't believe I'm saying this is public interest litigator but I have to say it in that is that The you know the outcome of the lawsuit is always very unclear in very indefinite I've been doing this long enough that I don't guarantee predict any outcome even if I'm fairly certain of it because I know it can always go the other way. But if the legislature was sins, this public health emergency if they vote I joined revolutionary, send it. It's rescinded. There's no question about that. And at that point, if the governor wants to have masks mandate, then he's got to work with the legislature he has to propose. To propose something that they would pass into wall or he has to, you know proposed rule that JC are would allow to go through He can't act unilaterally and you know what the outcome is. That would be I can't say at this point, but the outcome of litigation is uncertain. The outcome of legislation is certain and to be honest you know there are there could be some judges who would say, well, you know we we we kind of think the legislature should act on this and so. I you know as as as much as I have respect for those guys to simply say, well, we're not gonNA do anything is a private citizen might bring a lawsuit I. I don't think in this instance that That's the best way for them to about about this. If they think that the governor has overreached them, they need to take a vote and face. Yeah and we have God multiple press releases. So we've got the Senate Senate Majority Leader Fitzgerald, saying my caucuses ready to do this we are ready to call a session gavel in PASA joint resolution. We're not getting that commitment at least not yet from assembly however, Multiple Assembly. People have put out statements saying that this is this mandate is wrong. This is this is an overreach Some of them are hinting that they believe it is not lawful. So the assembly needs to simply declare that it is willing to go into session as well. Instead of dancing around and hoping it could smack it and wait for somebody to contact Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty and file a lawsuit because that will take a long time you and I've talked about this a a rapid turnaround for a court. Can still take a month people complain about it, and then I'll bring you on the program and you'll say, well, actually Vicki that's really fast for the court, but still you're talking about weeks at a minimum. Right, and the other thing to keep in mind is that it is quite possible that the legislature would find itself in the same position. If a court rules that the governor cannot declare public health emergencies in series arising from the same underlying which I think it should I think that that would be an important principle to establish There are the things that governor might try to do the governor might try for example to promulgate a rule requires a mask requirement in the State of Wisconsin at that point the ball with Dan, and again be the legislatures court to For JC are to decide whether it wanted to insist on modification of the role when wanted to block will going into effect in. So we're back where we started again, and although you know there's always a possibility litigate over the extended rule. You know we're we essentially you know. The issue still remains open and so you know as much as I'd like to think that you know public interest law can be the savior of you know all of us and maybe sometimes it can help in this instance I think the first the first responsibility does why with the legislature something else I thought was interesting and that is the exam salaciously in the judiciary. From this he says state facilities and offices under the control of the Wisconsin state legislature the Wisconsin Supreme Quarter exempt from this order etcetera etcetera etcetera, and it seems to me.

"mckenna" Discussed on Vicki McKenna

"There Talking. About you know the night before in the debate how well Mister Cain And a video to target for crisper guard came up pay clock. Let's say. I gotta shoot something you got to say thank you to all of our volunteer. So it wasn't planned, it wasn't scripted. Go outside of the Casino and Chris Starts asking me questions and filming in. If you notice in that in the video every once in a while the camera moves dry moved because he had a stop as a traffic was going by. So we went back into the casino and Burgers we gotTa canton that we can leave the cigarette in. She looked at it. And she said you know we let Cain became at blocked blocked. that. was never supposed to publish MSNBC somehow pull told off our website and the rest is history I. Think we went up three and a half points nationally in seventy two hours. And if and talk about ads that are ranked. The number one AD has ever been produced was Reagan, morning in America. The second one was busy from Linden Johnson's campaign and the third one for smoking ban. and. This is all if the appeal of that ad and people will look at it and say what's going on there. The appeal of that ad was was the appeal of Herman Cain and the tea party, and it was we're going to stop letting other people tell us what to do how to behave what to think and I think that was ultimately was cutting through all of this because we kept being told in the tea party movement that we were crazier, we were stupid. Or we were we shouldn't act like that and populism is a bad thing. All of these different things that we kept being told and so there's mark lock smoking, a cigarette and Herman Cain ad and people were like, yes. Because that's exactly and you had this sort of devil may care look on your face that is sort of that sort of captured the Zeitgeist of. The Movement at the time and it really I think spoke to people not the smoking, the cigarette thing but the but the we are going to be ourselves thing and if the if the elites if the globalist don't like it too bad right too bad. How did how did how did it all come apart I mean this is important to remember remember Herman Cain Number One. This all without Wisconsin Herman. CAIN wouldn't have run for president without? Mark Block Herman Cain wouldn't have come to Wisconsin without Herman Cain I don't think we would have had a tea party movement and certainly without you mark, we wouldn't have had a tea party movement. But it it seemed like you shouldn't have had to worry about Herman. Cain here's this guy on the rally circuit and all of a sudden he starting to show up in polls and that's when the knives came out. It's important to remember that he had. He was victim of a political assassination attempt because of black conservative that was penetrating with a message that was that was so easy to understand was too dangerous to let go go forward too much more. Commonly agreed In fame on me. In the fact that we had planned for the attack, but we didn't think they were going to happen. So January. The first major came on October thirty first on Halloween. And kind of ambushed the. Alleged allegations and and they they were never proven. That's one point to get across. But I must care with you a story on the morning after the allegations. Were all the senior staff in Washington DC with Mister Cain is we had folks. Solid. Week of him addressing Congress Uh. Congressional committees on healthcare the National Press Club. I would speaking's between before to major major groups. So you can expect the mood of senior staff that Monday morning was pretty down. So Mr Cain walked into the room. And I go oh no, he's black nobody told us that. And Kane just racks up. And he said, we're not canceling anything. We didn't do anything and we'RE GONNA take this head on. Guys was that's the kind of guy was he on the other kind of guy was was be met once he remembered your name because he thought it was worth remembering mark. Block I. Wish I could just talk about Herman four hours maybe you and I need to grab a drink this weekend. I need I. Need to take a break here we're gonNA come back with Rick, s and Berg that was mark block talking about the late Herman Cain pass away. We heard yesterday the age of seventy four too young too early. Could he used him. Coming up in this upcoming election as well. He was a good friend to a lot of people in Wisconsin and a great friend to Wisconsin Conservatives we'll be right back. This is the victim McKenna.

"Dampening I'm Vicky. Mckenna I think on live on the Mike in my wife Mike Mike All right I'm good. Just let me know when my mic is live. Broadcasting Remotely folks that they can show remote from a secret. Secure Location. Somewhere in. Wisconsin. Yeah I'm at home. I'm at home thinking I was going to have a short day. Thinking that the Madison Portion of the program is going to be preemptive for brewers baseball alas. No Alas for me. For, you baseball fans the brewers have decided to postpone their game, and if you already know that for those of you who don't, they have decided to postpone their game due to the Rona. We're GONNA be talking about the Rona on the program today specifically Governor Evers. Emergency Declaration and mask mandate the mask mandate he exempted himself. And the legislature from. So? It's so important. that. GOVERNMENT GETS TO BE EXEMPT. In the NEAT. NIFTY So one has been going on since the announcement of this. since the announcement of this yesterday. Senate majority leader Scott Fitzgerald who said my caucus is ready to fight this call a special session. Pass a joint resolution. Put an end to the governor's emergency. Order. Nothing. Like that. Bold statement direct statement. Has Come. From. The assembly. The assembly. is. Putting. Out Press releases. Talking about how terrible the mandate is. But not joining Senate majority leader, Scott Fitzgerald in calling for a joint session to pass a joint resolution. Putting an end to the governor's emergency order. We're GONNA talk about this because the governor's emergency order is likely unlawful. We'll talk with Kassenberg Berger a little bit later on about why that's true. It's fairly simple. Section three, twenty, three, dot ten says two things number one. It says that after the governor's emergency authority. Expires sixty days so he's already had one. Crack at the emergency order, Pinata that expired after sixty days. If he wants to do it again, he needs permission from the legislature to do it. He did not seek permission from the legislature secondly. and. This empowers the legislature even more. The legislature has the authority to pass a joint resolution and simply. Take Away. The governor's latest emergency declaration rescind the governor's emergency declaration. It does not require a signature from Governor Eve irs. So there's in section three, two, three, dot ten. The legislature. Is. empowered. Dramatically, after the first sixty day order has expired. So, where's the assembly on this? Where is the? Promise to work with the Senate to call a special session to pass a joint resolution where are they I don't know. Lots of assembly people have put out statements saying this is a terrible mandate. It's a one-size-fits-all mandate. This doesn't make sense for Wisconsin but only Adam Nalen that I can tell so far has joined with the Senate Nicole for a special session in a joint resolution ending. Eagles latest mandate. But more on this coming up also on the program, Mark, block is going to join mark has. worked shoulder to shoulder with Herman Cain. In Wisconsin. Brought Herman Cain to Wisconsin. Herman Cain was instrumental in lighting up the excitement of the tea party movement in Wisconsin Herman, Cain of course, passed away at the age of seventy four. And mark very good friend with me of his he also managed Herman's presidential campaign. So a little. A little memory of Herman Cain on the program today as the mainstream press. has already begun to try to sully. The the the memory of Herman has tried to make sure that his wikipedia is going to be overrun with you know the the degrading. Statements that are being made by people who hated him politically So. Before that is allowed to cement itself. The press even in death hates conservatives particularly black conservative so much that they would. They would actually spend time trying to figure out ways to damage the reputation of a dead man. Not, GonNa let that happen on this mark walk is going to join me next. Rick.

Big tech CEOs testify before Congress

Big tech CEOs testify before Congress

"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content. When I say utopia what comes to mind. Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the perfect social body. Every Body Matt Place. Everybody happy now while the peacock original series, brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago. But we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades, and we're increasingly lonely whereas in a utopia. Everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen forty-three, the psychologist Abraham. maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in Utopia, we decide for ourselves, what we need and how we're GONNA get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds. Pretty good. Right. Then why can't we make it happen? For a Utopian Society the work we might need to disband some of the things we hold dearest marriage government privacy individualism even family. See for yourself. If a Utopian world is as perfect as it seems watch brave new world now streaming only on peacock. These are really difficult crazy stressful times, and if you're trying to sort of cope, it could be helpful to find something that gets beyond like doom scrolling and like obsessive worried. But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world. We've seen now more than ever like how relevant policy is to our actual lives, but so much in the news isn't focused on really understanding and explaining detail way if that sounds good to you, join us for the weeds, every Tuesday and Friday to find out what's going on why matters and what we can do about it. You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.

Justice for Breonna Taylor with Andrea J Ritchie

"March thirteen, twenty twenty Briana was shot and killed by police in Louisville Kentucky. In what's been described as a botched raid officers barged into Taylor's apartment under a no knock warrant and fired multiple rounds. No drugs were found the no knock warrant in question was actually for Taylor's ex boyfriend and his friends who live miles away. It had already been detained by the time. Please enter Taylor's home. As maddening as honest death is most Americans hadn't even heard of it until nearly three months later as the national unrest around the deaths of Egmont arbitrary and George Floyd's began to unfold. What all the stories of those killed and brutalized by police are important. Brianna isn't the first black woman to have hers reduced to a footnote in the larger narrative. Why are the guests of black women at the hands of police received so much differently, and what can we do to change that? Today to help us understand. We're joined by Andrea J, reaching the author of invisible, no more police violence against black women and women of color. Andrea Richie thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks so much for having me, so let's jump right into it and start with your book invisible. No more. Can you tell us a bit about it and like what inspired you to write this? One inspire me to write invisible. No more was the work that I've been doing for the past couple of decades, documenting or around litigating around advocating around and just generally Around black women girls, Queer and Trans People's experiences, policing and wanting to provide some context for the individual cases that we were hearing about so for instance thinking about Brianna Taylor. If you looked invisible, no more you learn that. Unfortunately she's far from the first black woman who was killed in a no knock drug raid. You bring up Taylor and I know there's definitely this feeling when I look at her case. In the cases of other black women would been killed at the hands of police. It seems like they don't get as much attention as the cases of black man who had been killed by the police. But the thing you point out your book is that that's not a feeling that that is reality. He talked to us a bit about that pattern. Yeah I think the title of the book is both a statement of fact, a demand an aspiration, right? It's a statement of fact that hosts Sandra. Bland black women's experiences of policing are no longer invisible. In the way they were pre twenty fifteen often say that before twenty fifty nine. I feel like I'd be talking underwater constantly about violence against women and girls, and it just wasn't landing, and then all of a sudden in two thousand fifteen. It's like my. My head popped above water, and suddenly there was also a lot of other voices speaking in same same thing, so in that sense. We're at an unprecedented level visibility of black women's experiences of policing. I would say that's true for Briana Taylor. There's a way in which we still have a long way to go for black women's experiences to be at the center of our consciousness around this issue to be informed by Black Women's experiences. That's the next step we have to move past visibility to action. Why do you think there's been such a difference between the reception? Of Brianna? Taylor versus Church Floyd. Our understanding of police violence is definitely shaped to the experiences, a black man who are assumed to be straight and not Trans Right. That's the story of state violence that we hear that with the media reproduces that we produce the telling stories to each other in such a way that even when black women's experiences happen in broad daylight on camera in the same way, the happened for George Floyd. Are Invisible in some way when you look at the incident report for Briana. Taylor's killing. It says no one was injured. And that's just an extreme example of how invisible violence against black women is. Here's a black woman who died in a hail of bullets blood out in her own bed in her own home where she was sleeping. Police report says no one was hurt the last reason i. think it's invisible is because. If as a society, we had to contend with state violence against black women that's informed by both anti blackness and gender violence right beside more than we would have to contend with anti black women violence in our communities. Contend again with the fact that this nation is built on violence against black women's bodies and black and Trans bodies and we're not ready to do that. You know there's this theory, though I think we've all heard that part of the reason why there's such a big difference between the response to be honest anthem response to George. Is that free? Honest wasn't caught on camera quick. Do you think about that I unfortunately point people to a lot of videotape? Black women dying on camera to police Natasha McKenna is a ten minute video of her being. tased to death by police there's. Video of Doina Johnson, a Black Trans woman, being brutally beaten in the police precinct that did not inspire an uprising in the same way that Rodney. King stood. They don't WanNa. Keep repeating kind of the the degree of violence, but what I want to say is that there's no shortage of videotaped evidence of police violence against black women I don't. Think that's. The entirety of the story is something. They also feels especially Kinda unique about Brianna Taylor's case is that it's almost become this this inescapable meam as of late like people I've seen weird social media posts like even sometimes dance challenges like it. It's kind of taken on a life of its own ultimately is that type of attention is? Is that helpful or harmful? I think that it recreates some of the narratives that produce the death of black women. I think it's recreating the notion. The objectification of black women that in this case Brianna Taylor story is an opportunity to make. A clever pun or acute mean and we've lost spree on his humanity in that. We've lost the fact that she was a sister. She was a daughter. She was an emt. She was someone who was full of joy of laughter jokes the life of the party she was. Multidimensional Person Right and I think we just need to be careful that we're not turning visibility in the way that black women have been made visible in ways that are harmful produce more violence.

Trump Uses Mount Rushmore Speech to Deliver Divisive Culture War Message

"President. Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters in an Independence Day rally at Mount Rushmore last night, where he took the opportunity to denounce the ongoing racial justice movement. And as the Washington Post reports, Republicans are now fearing that his actions could jeopardize not only his reelection but also the future of a GOP majority in Congress. Joining us with Mohr on the KCBS Ring Central News line. Jack Pitney, professor of American politics at Claremont McKenna College, Professor Penny, Thank you for joining us. We appreciate your time. Thank you. And first of all, why don't we maybe should touch on one or two of the things that The president said last night that is kind of raising an eyebrow. Yeah. The entire speech was designed not to unify but to divide, uh, talking about the radical left trying to tear down statues. Ironically, he talked a lot more about statues than about the danger facing really people. That is the Corona virus, and ah, what was also controversial about the event yesterday. Is that there was no social distancing. Nobody was masked and as a result of that, it's very likely. A lot of the people in that crowd are going to be at risk for contracting Kobe. I know people think that the president has reacted very slowly on the Corona virus pandemic itself and the fact that he doesn't wear a mask. As you pointed out, it's telling people is delivering a message. Ah, that's right. And ah, it's a message that he doesn't particularly value reduction of risk here. That's a very dangerous message for a president to be sending. Instead, he's concentrating on these, uh, culture, war issues, really trying to distract attention from the main issue facing the country, which is this terrible pandemic, his ratings in the polls air dropping as we touched upon it and are leading Some of the Republicans now are starting to get a little worried that he is Doing more damage to the party. Then he is helping them. There's no question about that. People judge a president on results and the results as of the middle of 2020 are just downright terrible. Uh, not only the pandemic, but the economy has suffered severe damage. Uh, the standing of the United States globally is very poor United. Americans are now banned from a lot of countries. Uh, if you had predicted this several years ago, everybody would have thought you were an alarmist, but it's come to pass. Professor. Can he turn this? He being the president? Can he turn this around? And if so, what does he have to do to do that? Number one. He needs to get a handle on the pandemic. He needs to show leadership. Uh, he needs drastically to ramp up. Uh, testing, get people to wear masks and if he were able to get Americans to wear masks 70 80 90% That could go a long way not to ending the pandemic, but possibly depending the curve. Uh, if he doesn't do that, it's going to get worse and his political fortunes are very much in jeopardy. And right now, it looks like he's faltering as we mentioned in the polls, But you know this could have a long term effect for the GOP party down the road. That's right. If the election were held today, Republicans would lose both chambers of Congress would suffer a catastrophic defeat for the presidency that gets them into a deep hole. And even worse than that, Uh, you have members of Congress who have hitched their wagons to Donald Trump. And, uh, it's kind of like Republicans in the 19 thirties, coming out a CZ Hoover Republicans. We all know what happened to the Republican Party during the 19 thirties. It's gonna be a long long recovery for Republicans if he doesn't turn it around very quickly, And I guess the old adage, time will tell is what's important

"Here's what I'm going to. Folks I am going to put that. Lee Greenwood Song the new recording. On My facebook page, which actually already there and we'll put it on the blog as well so check out the blog also I will link Senator Ron Johnson's interview. We're GONNA. Be Chatting with him a little bit later on in the program all right secretary of how of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson is on my phone. Happy Independence Day early. Thank you for joining me on the program today, Dr Carson. Delighted. It's great to have you, so here's where we're GONNA start with your latest piece. That I saw and thank you for doing this. By the way it is a column that is in defense of American history in defense of the preservation of our story as radicals, Anarchists Socialists are attempting to erase American history through the destruction of statues. Or documents I saw just yesterday that there are professors now advocating for changing the language of the constitution to make it more woke. I. We need people in one with one voice to stand up and say this must end now. Well I think most Americans actually feel that way, but we reach the point where people are afraid to speak up. Why do you think the ramifications for that? You know the the PC movement has expanded to just more than verbal abuse. You can actually get physical abuse. You can lose your tab. All kinds of things can happen. So a lot of people have decided that it's much easier just to to cower in the corner and hoping alone, 'cause you a bad man, you know that's true and let the people who are doing this and willing to get you fired and willing to attack you in your car. If you make the mistake of driving, you know into one of the occupied anarchy events that are going on. They don't even understand what they're doing here in Wisconsin. The Hans Christian Hegg Statue which is in downtown. Madison Wisconsin the capital city, a noted abolitionist at grave risk to himself. Defended people nobody would was defending. I shouldn't say nobody Abraham. Lincoln was defending the Republican Party. Had many many abolitionists in it. They tore down the statue and I'm not GonNa Kidding you what this is actually on a facebook live video. The words uttered. Who is this guy? That so they tore down. They tore down that you. Who is this guy? Or typical, Just creating havoc and you know you you have to, you know. I've I've said this for a member of years now there those who want to fundamentally changed this country. And in order to do that. You have to gain control of a few things. The educational system so they can indoctrinate people. You have to gain control of the media. so that you can control the narrative. And, you have to gain control the courts. Well, you know once you lose. Control the court. What's left? Anarchy Kia. And you have to convince people. The system simply doesn't work. And, if it doesn't work then, maybe we should change to something else. And in the meantime you do everything you can possibly do. Make sure it doesn't work. You're right and they've got the education system and they've got the media, and in many respects, they've got the courts, and they are beginning to convince people that it doesn't work because we're seeing an unequal application of the law, we're seeing a breakdown of peace and order a breakdown of the rule of law. We're seeing an assault on our story. The American store if you don't understand the American story than what is this nation anything more than just a place where you live, and if it's just a place where you live, and there's nothing special about. About it, then why not change and that's working I mean we've had forty years of indoctrination in the public school system with social media. Now you have the mainstream press able to have a much broader reach an radicals from the university able to also have a much broader reach to control the Narrative I. Mean Our folks look at this stuff? And they think that if they speak out, then the and I think they're in the minority, and they speak out that it's it. It's actually potentially dangerous for them. This is a bad time in America. Where people are simply going to have to recognize that if you're gonNA, be the land of the free. You also have to be home of the brave. If you're not willing to stand up for what you believe that you're gonNA, lose it. It's as simple as that. And you know people need to be thinking about the children and their grandchildren and ask yourself. What is the outcome of the kind of activity that we are seeing now? Is it some beautiful nirvana where everybody lives in teeth, happiness prosperity, of course not. It never has been. And If if if people just engage their brains and start thinking Donna. And you know when it comes to renaming everything.

They'll keeping Mitchell start screaming, because not scare somebody on the right more than angry black woman, and that's the strategic part that would happen next. She starts screaming and shaking her finger and you know. All over the place and then people would run and hide under their desks, but until there's push by nicer form when I. When we hear, we hear so much now there's no pushback and the pushback. What would it look like just named what it would look like start countering the es come out of these people's miles. Yeah and and If somebody, does it? have their back. Don't go running for the closets because you know. The press is going to call you if someone actually does try to push back against these lives, and these are allies, these are lives. The slaves didn't free themselves in America. That's what the radical black lives matter. Movement thinks it isn't structurally racist. In this country Abraham Lincoln did not hate black people. You know there. Isn't you sleeping while black driving while black? That's not a crime. You don't have racist police officers trying to gun down on armed black people in masks swats across the United States. These aren't things that are actually happening. There's been fewer police. Police use of force incidents this year than there was last year fewer laughter than there was the year before. If you were the year before then there was the year before that. And to your point if you want to actually do something to help how come nobody seems to be bothered by the fact that less than ten percent of black kids in American public schools Milwaukee. Madison doesn't matter can read and do math grade level. Does anybody think that that is going to open up massive? Gigantic doors and gateways of opportunity nobody seems to care about the things that are actually that actually are in place in this nation that if anybody gets stuck in in those liberal policies of dependency, their future looks mighty bleak, compared to what would happen if they actually they actually tried to learn, did for themselves so I don't. Yeah another reason why it's important for somebody to accommodate nonsense is because it gets entered into the congressional record than all of the lives of the propaganda in the myth. That she proposes all entered into the congressional record. It has to be counted so at least an and that would be my response. So what good is GonNa do? Get in the congressional records. If it doesn't stick, nonsense doesn't stand by itself. People come later on in the congressional record, and then they start to believe anything that they read unless there's a counter argument, you have to counter this stuff. We sing that they do and say. That's one of the reasons why they WANNA. Get rid of Lincoln. It's because they don't want that associated with the Republican. Party the free freeing of this links, so they give it a Lincoln. And rid of all indicates what the Republican Party stood for in. Did the abolitionist movement? Didn't exist, so that's what coming after Lincoln. They could care less than Lincoln. Freed the slaves. They need that taken away so that the Republican Party chant claim credit and shame on the Republican Party for not standing up more on this issue. WHO FREED THE SLAVES AND Every time there there there are interviewed every time every place. They go ten you to say favorite. Say it and see it again. Yeah, we're the party of Lincoln. Lincoln freed the slaves. We're the party of Lincoln. Lincoln freed the slaves. Maybe even just opened with that There's a Kenosha back to blue rally coming up on on Saturday. Tomorrow at Eleven Am I. Don't WanNa Miss an opportunity to talk about this. Police forces are surrendering the Milwaukee and didn't think I was GONNA. See this coming from Milwaukee, but she had chief Morales. That let's talk about defunding. Maybe he can go through and help find some ways to quote. DE-FUND THE MILWAUKEE. Police Department. A ten percent cut would be two hundred and fifty officers at a time when there has been a spectacularly gigantic increase in homicides from I believe, it was thirty nine to seventy two homicides, and that's when I looked a week ago. I'm sure there are more people now dead in the city of Milwaukee, so you have law enforcement administration's. Issuing stand down orders. Madison you've got the Milwaukee Police is tough, and and he's saying well. Okay. We'll let me sit down and help you find ways to cut our police force back. So. There's not. There's nothing that anyone we'll do. That morality have put for. You? Want to look for some money. Look at the Milwaukee. Public School budget one point two billion dollars a year for all of that. You know your. Why don't we cut the budget of the Milwaukee? Public schools and fund all these other folly, said you wanna you wanNA chase after and leave the police along. He should not say well. Sit Down and we'll look at how we know. He doesn't have the resources that he needs now. Why would he go in there? And cut his own nose up trying to find or maybe he could. Give a little money here they got these officers work these ungodly hours working twelve at six hours ships. You can't get. You can't get any time walk, police. Suicides are up and we're walking. Police know about at. From their own of personal experiences offers committed committing suicide suicide among police officers, leading cause of death. It I'll pace his dog in the line of duty by other means and then also. The other thing that staggering about that in the profession, the only profession in the United States, that has an alarming rate suicide like doesn't boomer Morales talk about that what we're doing to these police, officers and not by. HUMAN FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE THEY NEAT time off. They need mental mental health. Treatment if you will ptsd for all the crap that they go through, that's the responsible. Morale is not capitulating to this angry mob already in two thousand, hundred seventy five officers have resigned or retired since the beginning of twenty twenty so you had seventy five officers say. I'm done and a story today at T. J. Four, announcing that this is anticipated to get even worse.

That if you call her a blathering, idiot, then you're racist and so there aren't enough in. Here's the problem. One person will call her a blathering idiot. It won't be fifty people. It'll be one that person will be called. That's now the sheep that decided to go stray, and we're going to sick. The wolves out after that one and so nobody's got the blank to call her the she lied in that segment, and what she said was nonsensical. So if she misrepresented everything that was going on in reality in America. Yeah you know. The the woman is a blabbering idiot. There's no doubt about that. She's adult while she was Santa up there and throughout some platitudes. Ball information myths propaganda. Anti anecdotal evidence of what's really going on out there and I would expect. For for a country. That's impressive. How did she make it the Congress? She had the opportunity and and response to it, and and this is the one thing that where people get into trouble, the response her from her colleagues on the House floor. You only can't call her a dope and a blabbering idiot, but they can call it a black racist and they started pointing out the fact that can say hey, look. We spent twenty two trillion dollars. In the black community over the last fifty years to try to improve conditions and nothing worse, because money's not the problem, we have feeling schools with ineffective parenting. We have failure to embrace education. We have fatherless homes. All of these are urban policies. Set up by failed liberal policies what needs to happen Madam congresswoman if we US go back to your community and help root out the cultural rot and the cultural dysfunction of the underclass. That's keeping the black community back. That's the response, but nobody's got the courage all right, and of course you know what would happen, but I'll tell you what Louie, Gohmert, tech a guy who would do it in what you call them. You gotta get over that. We gotta get past this. Call us this while the two who chairs darn it who cares start telling the people choose look congresswoman, whatever her name is Preston Presley. Cut The crap single into the rhetoric about everything that's been done. To improve how about affirmative action programs reparations were?

WHO can speak freely? About the insanity of taking another two hundred, fifty, two hundred fifty police officers off the streets of Milwaukee. Two hundred fifty. Do it before convention. If you're, GONNA do it. Do it before convention, so we'll talk about that. The University of Wisconsin Flagship Institution of the University of Wisconsin. Madison wants to talk about the quote complicated legacy of Abraham. Lincoln that's right, folks. becky blank is entertaining. The students who are petitioning to have the Abraham Lincoln Statue. Removed from Bascom Hall right out in front of Basketball Hall. Remove the statue. Lincoln was anti-black is what they say he's gotta go. Here's some other things that also have to go the national anthem. The progressives are suggesting that we replace the national anthem with. John Lennon's imagine. And I am not even kidding you, so that's coming up on the program. This is just you can't ignore this and just say Oh. Those are just dumb. adulated college students. Because the adults college students are having an effect. Look how many corporations of already caved look how many politicians have already caved? But. Here's what we're going to start before we get to David Clarke. Because I'm dying to hear his reaction to this. This is Ion Presley. Democrat. From. Cheese I'm not sure if she's from Tehran or Beijing. Not, quite sure anyway. I honor Presley in the House of Representatives. Who made a speech about the Democrats? Anti Police Bill. The Republicans are not going to entertain a vote on. An oppressing listen to the passion, listen to the anger. And listen to what she says at the end of her passionate angry speech. Which would be great? If any of what she said were true. Have a listen here she is. Driving while black jogging, wobbly sleeping while black, we been criminalized for the very way we show up in the world under the harsh as far too many of my black body is seen as a threat, always considered armed centuries of institutionalize oppression will not be undone overnight for racism in America is structural as the marble pillars of this very institution with the power of the pen. We must legislate accountability. Dismantle the systems and move. Move in the direction of justice and healing, the justice and Policing Act is a critical step forward and I applaud the leadership of the congressional black, caucus, but our work is unfinished. There is a rallying cry communities across the nation black lives. Matter is a mandate from the people. It's time. Pay Us what you owe us are black skin is not a crime. It is the beautiful role of nation builders. Thank you I yield. It is the beautiful robe of nation builders. Pants which you us. We're nation, builders. The structural racism is as. Deeply embedded in the United States as the marble, the marble that the nation builders want to tear down. And pay us what you owe us. So you WANNA tear down Abraham Lincoln Statue. You. Want to tear down Thomas Jefferson. You WanNa tear down. Ulysses s grant you WanNa, tear down the abolitionist. Christian Hegg you want to tear down the forward statue in Wisconsin which was supposed to be a statue, commemorating the great strides made in women's rights. Progressive Statue by the way honoring those progressives honoring themselves all of these things that are being torn down you WANNA burn down cities. You WanNa. Tear down, police, you WANNA tear down. Churches and black lives matter the mandate a neo fascist. Neo Marxist organization that wants to burn down the family. They WANNA burn down education. That doesn't sound like nation building to me. Maybe I'm crazy. Maybe I'm just a crazy person who refuses to accept my white privilege, but the definitions of words actually matter and absolutely nothing that happened in Madison on Tuesday night, including setting fire to municipal building that housed juvenile inmates sounds like nation builders to me. The Guy who walked around harassing people with a baseball bat, and a megaphone wasn't about building bridges. And Justice and healing see in the minds of someone like Ana Presley Justice must mean mob rule and healing must mean. Destruction and pain and nation builders must actually mean nation, destroyers and black lives matter black lives. Matter must have absolutely nothing to do with a high rate of violence and urban communities committed by members of the urban communities against one another. But. Pay Us what you owe us. How much! You. This is the thing. If you're going to say pay US what you here's what I WANNA know. Can we just cut you a check? You Carping Harvey. and. You'll go away coming up sheriff. David.

So did Connor McKenna have coronavirus or not?

"So no one can we talk a bit about Connor McKenna, he's an essendon football player. And he tested negative corona virus on Tuesday, but he'd had a positive result over the weekend and he'd had an irregular test result a couple of days before that, so they weren't really sure which it was, and now they're sort of. It's looking like. Maybe he's fine, but I thought that it was way more likely that you'd get a false negative than a false positive so this. Is Not a great surprise in. You'd have to say that he has had the infection. He has been positive for covid nineteen, and it was accurate, because false negatives are much more common false positives. So what's what are we talking about here? So if you were to postulate, the comic has not been infected at all with the COVID nineteen virus. You'd have to say that the test. The day where he was positive was a false positive, so he was really didn't have. have any virus and the test falsely said that he did. That's extremely rare. What is much more common is the test doesn't show that you're positive. When you are in other words, you're carrying the virus, but the test doesn't show that you are and so. What Connor McKenna has shown a very typical pattern of people with corona virus. Is that early on in the infection? The test is either equivocal or negative, because he simply just don't have enough virus there to. To trigger the test, or the might be something wrong with the test early on then as more and more environment accumulates in your body, the test becomes more accurate, and therefore you know. He had some equivocal tests then he's scored positive. That's roughly around the time that you'd expect them to be accurately positive. And now he's scoring negative, which either means he's truly cleared the virus from his system, or he still has the virus, but the test isn't sensitive enough to. To, pick it up. Which is why he'll have more tests, so you have to say there's no confusion here. McKenna has been infected with the covid nineteen vars very typical pattern, so we possible it would be technically possible to see whether or not because you could do an antibody test if you wanted to. Maybe we're not talking about comic specifically here, but someone who had these sort of testing Patton. You could have a look at the antibodies and see if they. Had had it or not, after the fact after the fact, and well after the fact, it doesn't help you this week. It might help you in a month's time. True to get to the bottom of the affair, but at the moment antibody tests don't help you. You've got to go for the virus itself or the genetic trace of the virus so I. Mean you're making it sound quite cut and dried. Why are we still speculating about these wise and it just? Yes, he's had it. He should be an isolation while assume because. Team would love it to be. A crappy taste and he's never been positive all along and the and the one player who seems to have had significant contact with him is off the hook, and as a quarantine for two weeks and the team. You can get back to playing. I mean that's me being cynical, so there's there's a lot at stake here whereas if it's your granny. Important to your granny, but not necessarily to the community at large

"mckenna" Discussed on Vicki McKenna

"THAT COMMERCIAL? Break this one from Joel. Not only are you not allowed to visit? Your loved one. While in hospice, there are many assisted living facilities were not allowing hospice nurses and aides in unless the person is very close to death, chaplains or social workers, either so really. What's use of hospice right now here? Is David? Thank you for all you do. Our Father passed away on March ninth. Not of the virus. He was ninety six year old World War Two veteran as a large family. He had seven children. We've not been able to gather as A. A family to mourn his passing, no funeral was allowed. His wake was limited to ten people in the funeral home at the time, which meant as a family, we still could not be together. We gathered small group of the family's spread out at Union Grove for his burial and had a twenty one gun salute. We know we are not the only ones feeling loss and confusion at this time, but we're happy that our father who fought major battles in Europe for this country is now in heaven with mom and not able to see this great country. Lose itself. And then here is I'm a flip at one of the freighter clinics, not going to say the name of this person. Obviously my hours along with everyone else's have been cut in half now. A lot of employees are not even getting their unemployment. We're not sure on the unemployment side or the freighter side. Awful bottom is that came in to take the other half of my hours. Today told me she got thirteen weeks last. Thirteen hours last week is a single mom. Wow now. No unemployment, check. What's going on is ridiculous. There is no reason why we we all can't be wearing peas and see patients we get fitted for. All the time when it comes time to use them, we're not allowed. These stories. And you want interested. I am. It's not just about Cova nineteen confirmation numbers. It's not just about you know data on unemployment. It's not just about taught vague talk of problems in the economy and the potential for depression. Is a real people. Through your neighbors. Your kids your friends. That's who they are. They're the people who make that wonderful small town that you live in worth living in. This is the Vicki McKenna show..
