"State is a matter of fact. I've never been to Oregon either. And I've always thought the Pacific Northwest just generally look Beautiful. Maybe not the city specifically and certainly not as they've been represented on cable news. Recently and all I've really ever known about Seattle. Other than what we've seen on cable news is Starbucks, Frazier and the Seattle Seahawks. And now the cracking for May. Well, I guess is that where the cracking comes from? Yeah, the well the NHL team New Seattle team is. Well, that's what they're actually called the crack and cool colors I wanted they should have. They should have Sidney Powell come out. Drop the first part. Don't you think that'd be fun? They were out to drop them. Fuck. Now here to drop the ceremonial first puck. Sidney Sidney Powell. Oh yeah, I would love that be eliminated, TIFA would take over a hockey game first game of the season. But, uh, it zits not exactly a secret, and it's certainly not a laughing matter, But it's just I think, what shocks me the most is it just seems like Everyone in in the in the positions of power to do anything about it are just kind of okay with it being in this perpetual state of chaos, and I can't really get my head around. Why? Why it's just gonna got us. I mean, you know, President Trump, As you know, the last year, he kept saying, Give me a ring like you know how to find me like, call me on help. I can't just storm your city with troops. They call me I'll help but they didn't want to help. Gives thing. We got it. You don't got it clearly. You don't got it. Um and they kept saying we don't want your help. Stay out. Well, Joe Biden gets elected. Put that in there, Quote. He's inaugurated and things there is violent and insane. As they've ever been. Protesters opposing Biden now vandalizing buildings, the DNC headquarters there no less. Damage, shattering buildings, flipping cars, lighting things on fire. And of course, it's not just Seattle. It's Tacoma. It's Portland. It's Denver. I think I read I mean, there were other cities, but the Pacific Northwest continues to be a hotbed of this stuff. And so we brought in a gentleman who knows a thing or two about it. He's the associate editor and Seattle correspondent for the Post Millennial his name's Ari Hoffman. And he joins us now, Mr Hoffman. Thanks a lot for your time this morning. Hi. My pleasure to be here. Can you kind of help Those of us out in the East Understand the Pacific Northwest, particularly for guys like me that have never been. I guess that you don't have a grasp culturally on what's going on? Absolutely. I'm from New York originally, so I think I can help you with that perspective. When you look at what's happened in Seattle, basically, for the best comparison, I can come up. This is the movie The Dark knight, the Batman moving. What happened was the criminals don't know how to deal with that man. So what they did was they unleashed the Joker and then didn't realize the mess they had created and how crazy it was going to get. The Democrats used anti feathers, so civil Scored unreciprocated and as a result, now they can't control their own creation. They let them run wild from entire year and even longer informed, and now they've done that. They didn't expect them to turn on them and start protesting the Democrats as well. And now you're seeing what's happened because of that. And what makes them I mean, not that you know. I don't look at Philadelphia, some sort of model city. I mean, it's it's got its own chaos, for instance, and so does New York. But there's something a bit different, right. I mean the chaos. There's a lot of violence, but it's not quite like what we're seeing in Seattle, where you The kind of the antifa element What's the difference? Do you see They're all liberal cities run by leftist but different. How So do you think Typically in my experience, Philadelphia, Boston, New York and the common Sense to know. Okay, this the buck stops here. This is going to cost his votes. This is going to cost us money. This is going to destroy property. We can't allow it to go this far. But in Seattle, the inmates are running the asylum. These guys get to do whatever they want. They don't arrest that. If they do arrest him, they don't charge them. They release them back into the wild. They just go on to re offend. They left. An entire group of these guys haven't armed occupation of six blocks of the city for a month this summer, and it didn't stop because of Voight's or robberies or shootings or the death of two black teens stopped when these guys in March to the mayor's house and vandalized the mayor's house, That's when I said Oh, you know, we've had enough of this. This might be a bad idea. We need to shut it down. Ari Hoffman with his associate editor and Seattle correspondent for the Post Millennial What is their objective? Do they have a stated objective? Stated objective these camps and anarchy. That's really what they want. Here's what happened after Trump lost. I'm Joe Biden was called the winner. They said it didn't matter who was president wince and repeat was what they were posting on Social media. It didn't matter them who's in the White House. They want America gone. Hey, espouse Marxist values. They're all in for communism. They celebrate Dictatorships, and that's what they want. They want energy and chaos. The whole tradition, Marxism in communist That's really what they want. And is that is that a model that they ultimately I mean, do they do they believe there's a is there a strong man that they would envision I mean, I I I'm sorry. Just for devil's advocate sake. I'm trying to entertain their madness for a minute. Do they envision someone being installed that would ultimately placate them and they would be satisfied and stop being violent or or violence is their existence. Violence of existence. I don't think they wouldn't know what to do with themselves if they actually had that power because right now, in essence, they control the entire Seattle governments. They can do whatever they want. They're nobody's going to stop them, and they're still protesting every day. So what we really want to accomplish and I couldn't tell you what the end game is because I don't think they know what it is..

"The secretary of state to de certify the election because of anomalies. One of those is representative elect Jake Hoffman, who joins us now, Mr Hoffman. What teeth does this letter have is their demand here? If if, if and when. She re says No, she's not going to be certify. What's the next step for your group? Yeah, thanks for having me on Mike. That's a great question. So you know, legislators have a responsibility to ensure the integrity are in our elections. And that's what calling on Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who under state statute has the responsibility for certifying and the responsibility for D certifying in a case like this, And so we called on her to do that. There's currently a resolution. It is circulating amongst legislators and legislators elect that's getting signed on to that will be sent to the secretary of state. I believe later today as well. Now the tone has been adversarial at times from from the GOP and from some others that are making challenges here. The letter that you guys signed onto in some of the quotes from you and from while Blackman and from the majority leader Warren Peterson has been a lot more civil, in the sense of we just want this looked into because of anomalies. Can you kind of tell me the attitude of this one and how it differs from what we've seen? Yeah, That's yes, That's a very good point. So as legislators, you know, like I said, R R responsibility. Our constitutional duty is to ensure that there's integrity in our elections and that their certainty in the outcome of our election. The Constitution requires that the Legislature has authority for elections and as such, we take that responsibility very seriously. You know when legislators swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, not just empty words. And so in that sense, you know, this really isn't about. Does the trump slate move forward? Does the Biden slate move forward? This is about the fact that voters in Arizona millions of voters or deprived certainty in the outcome of this election, and as such, there should be no slate of electors sent forward so that Congress it should neither candidate get to 70 has a role to play in the process in determining the outcome of the election. So it's kind of a catch 22 for you because of this election is d certified. You're not necessarily elected yet either. So what happens to people like you until it's certified? You can't be sworn In until this gets certified. So what happens next? Well, look, this process will work itself out prior to legislators being sworn in. It certainly is. Look, this is an unprecedented situation. Mean much, much like what we'd expect experience over the last year with coronavirus No one planned for this. No one was able to know what was going on. And so in this situation we're having to go to the best constitutional experts in the country asked for their advice and then make decisions based on the advice that we get in terms of our role to play in this process and cleaning up the mess. People like Katie Hobbs and Adrian Fun tests both Democrats, by the way, who are in charge of Arizona's elections created when what would you hope would happen an audit of the Dominion software on the machine's hand counting of the votes? What is it you're looking for? To ensure integrity and if it is fully investigated, and Joe Biden still comes out the clear winner? Will all of these legislators step forward and say This was a fair election and we need to move forward. Well, that's all we're really asking for is that we have the certainty that this was a free and stare election, right, ensuring that integrity and ensuring that Arizona and have the right to free and fair election. It's not just good public policy. It's a civil rights imperative This has become the civil rights issue of our time is does my vote count? And so, look, I think all of the above is necessary on a forensic audit of the Dominion voting machines based on the credible evidence that we received from other states as well as witnesses. Eyes is necessary, right in audit. Potentially a hand count is necessary. You know the State party's lawsuit that was just dismissed by the state Supreme Court. I'm appalled by their ruling because all they were asking for is we'd like an expanded sample so that we can ensure that the signatures on the ballot envelopes match the voter on that the votes are counted properly. Okay, so moving forward. You will be a member of the elections committee when you are sworn into the house of Representatives is there talk amongst people now of what can be done of the Legislature to ensure moving forward that the integrity is protected. What are some of those things? What does that look like? Yeah, There's a lot to talk about that. I mean, the 33 big issues you're gonna see coming into the next legislative session. We're going to be, you know, tax reform and waste. Oh, help lessen the adverse impact of coronavirus financially. On our citizens, Coronavirus and what the what the role The proper role of government is in a situation like this, and then obviously, election integrity. And so yes, there have been lots of ideas kicked around things like fixing the audit process and the methodology used for auditing. You know, that could be making it statistically significant, making it more transparent, allowing more observers things like that. Cleaning up the PE Zi Ellis the permanent early voter list, insuring that dead voters are removed from the voter rolls on. There's even some talk about reclaiming the Legislature's constitutional authority for certifying the Candace. So those are just some of them. What about the mail in voting is Merrick Open County has been said it's It's kind of an example of the way it's done the right way. Do you have confidence in the way mail in voting is done in Maricopa County? Look, I think there's a big difference between absentee voting and mail in voting, and that's a really critical point to make what we saw, and there's a lot of conflict Asian that's existing right now in the conversation. What we saw in other states was mail in voting, and that's where they just blindly mailed a ballot toe every voter on on the on the rolls, right. That's not what we have in Arizona. That's not what we haven't Maricopa County We have absentee ballots, and so what That means is someone has to intentionally request. They would like to be added to that permanent early voter list, And when they do, there's a signature verification process. There's an I D check. There's things like that. That ensure an added level of integrity in the process. So, yes, I think that we have a much better system than the rest but certainly looking at that mail at the absentee process. And looking at the verification process. When people go into the polls to drop off a absentee ballot is worth a good look. And look, this is not something that legislators are going to do in a vacuum. We have reached out to county recorders all across the state we've reached after the Maricopa County Recorder. And we're gonna do fact finding missions were going to go through and and walk through every step of their process with them so that they can advise us some what's currently in practice until that we can ask questions and that ways to improve that process moving forward. Mr Hoffman. Good talking with you this morning. I appreciate the clarification on the letter, and then what's to come in the session? Yes, sir. Thank you very much. Thanks. That's Kay Kaufman elected the House of Representatives will be on the elections committee. And it sounds like a reasonable request just for insurance purposes by in a moment. Of course we do The Gato speak you poll question of the day And just after nine o'clock we get to the tweets, the GOP, the AZ GOP making a firestorm nationally. Is it really that big of a deal? We'll get to it all next. Termites leave again today is meditation with the few sipping exercises to remind us a little treat can go a.

"Papal. You're listening to Chicago's afternoon news on 7 20. W G. N I'm Steve Berg grand. Thanks very much for tuning in. As we get ready to go into the weekend. I think a lot of people Will be going home to watch Borat tonight. I know Brian Alzheimer That's on his agenda. He's laughing already. You'll be watching it. I told my wife and I left, and I said, We're watching Borat tonight, and I don't even really like those kinds of movies, I think, but Going to check that out. If not, if you want something a little more sedate, but no, hardly sedate. There's the Chicago Seven film that's on right now on Netflix, and it's about the trial of the Chicago seven. Aaron Sorkin wrote the screenplay and directed it Well. Dick Schultz was the rial assistant U. S attorney in the trial. He talked to W. Jeans, John Williams this morning. And he compared events to the Realtor trial to the movie. This way, The die was cast during the trial. I neither time nor time Foreign nor I was permitted to talk about it. What? Whereas the defendant and their attorneys held two press conferences a day and did a great job of propagandizing. The whole track, you know, haven't isn't under their crap. We hadn't have not undone. That yet, But what do you mean by that? Well, the whole world heard only from them for 4.5 months in a rocket rockets trial, and we didn't say a word with mute and I'm saying that we were so far behind the propaganda that we never even made an attempt. To state What really happened? This is the movie was a complete fantasy. One is what happened in one of the pretense free the way they presented. Yeah, but how It's Hollywood. It's Hollywood. Yeah, well, are you speaking about the trial? Are you speaking about the Aaron Sorkin movie? Well, the the movie is just an extension of what has been going on for the last 50 years. Misrepresenting what happened? The movie is entertaining. It's a complete fabrication, but it's fun to watch. But is it so I'm just kind of interpreting you here, so it Maybe it's your view that we've sort of lionized these rebels as though they were the good guys in this story, and you don't like that version of history on this case, let me put it this way. OK, they're considered to be lovable people who came to Chicago during the Democratic National Convention to peacefully protest and to enjoy a music fest. And they were just peaceful people. That's a complete fabrication. It's more examples of what actually happened. For example, For example, when they came here before coming here, I told people come onto the come on to Chicago. We're going to smash the city. We're going to be prepared to shed blood. We're going to fight and die and Lincoln Park we're gonna have picked 1000 arrests 20 to 30 people killed I'm gonna pin the delegates in the in the amphitheatre with convention was taking place. We're going to require the government to use helicopters to get him out of the empathy turned back to their They're hotels were goingto flood the loop with demonstrators and caused the loop to fall. We're gonna storm the Hilton. These were revolutionaries. These were violent revolutionaries whom the public believes from their propaganda. That they were just little kids coming here for a nice time. Now in the film there, I've seen the film. There's a scene where they go to the authorities, and they asked for unlicensed to protest in the city. Calling your attention to march 26 1968. Did you have a meeting on that day? Yes, with whom? Mr Hoffman and Mr Rubin? Is it having Jerry's fine and what was said At the meeting, I was told that the youth International Party would be holding a festival of life in Grant Park during the Democratic National Invention that there would be thousands of young people attending and that there would be rock bands playing in the park music will be performed Rock music, I would think they also said that there would be public fornication say that again, sir. Public fornication. You're asking for a parks permit for public rock music? No, of course not. This's a movie. Now. Mr Schulz talked to John Williams about that actual process. They wanted they wanted, they said a permit to sleep in the park five nights when they negotiated with the city. They told him that there's going to be body painting nude ins. I won't use all their words that they said an orgy in the park. In fact, one of our undercover how police officers young police officer is walking through the park during the convention, and the kids were having sex up in the trees, the they Did not want a permit. They knew. Mayor Richard J. Daley was not only they also said they were. They had exclusive rights to the park, and the police could not could not manager Park on those five days with those conditions they knew. Absolutely I see that the police were here today. He wasn't going to give him a permit. They didn't want a permit. They wanted to fight the police when the police pushed them out. Which is what they did. And and after the convention was hold over on the way back to New York, one of the defendants said he wrote all the way home on a plane back to New York. I wondered what we would have done if they let us stay in Lincoln Park at night. They wanted the violence. They wanted to fight the police they wanted to resist. They wanted to riot and they did. That's former U. S Attorney Dick Schultz talking to John Williams about what happened on the trial of the Chicago Seven. You can see. That is a different version on Netflix. Maybe tonight, maybe another night. We're going to take a break. When we come back a much more serious story. We will talk to Jenny Swiss Fiona.

It was not only fine what suspended but I think he was way replying to a question that the man had spoken to you about that need mentioned Riley. And I think that is what you were seen to that individual who was suspended at the bank, you know, so I think we'll back you know this is going back to before eight o'clock. A caller took me to task for not knowing that the guy on second base had to be the guy that was the last out the previous inning. I admit I didn't know that we got straightened out by Mr Hoffman, who knows more and you know, suggested that Sean Jackson was fined. And suspended and basically the Eagles have they have said that he was punished? We don't know. Penalized was the word they use. Don't know what that consisted off. Whether it was just monetary or there was some kind of suspension are other action. So I may have missed stated that I don't know. I don't remember everything I say in the show. Sorry.

"An app mobile app he was working on new charges if he's in court right now yeah I think this hour he is facing an almost said exactly at two thirty he is scheduled to be indicted on the moon these new charges it's explosive the mayor of fall river is is accused basically of extorting pot shops for cash the indict according to the indictment in the prosecutors say he also was given we'd he was given pot to then resell on his own it's all in the indictment we have it all on on bostonherald dot com in we're working on it but it raises a very very serious question what does this mean when local officials can get into negotiations with perspective pot shop owners about what are they going to do what are they gonna you know big what's the local split in in this case the feds is saying it went even further when into the croup criminal realm in to help me with this the a former state inspector general grant Sullivan of the pioneer institute joins me today to help untangle this this amazing amazing story thank you Greg for joining us thanks for having me Joe I just just in my hand I just asked the cannabis control commission they oversee the rollout of of legal in medical weed in Massachusetts they just sent me this me almost five minutes ago a statement about this they they say the cannabis control commission is reviewing the US attorney's indictment against the mayor fall river and we'll monitor any ongoing investigation to protect the integrity of the Commonwealth licensing process for marijuana establishments in medical marijuana treatment centers so you know you and I were talking just before we came on on to the podcast this is a wake up call isn't it when it comes to how part licenses are handed out across the state are you worried about this at all I'm very worried in fact when I served as inspector general this was an issue even back at that time so in fact the inch the inspector general's office was involved in this very matter he was seen at your when cornea who's a master decide Gee whiz a successor to me our standing there when they announce the arrest and indictment of the mayor of fall river it's very disturbing tell you what what is gone so wrong in white people I think should be outraged by this this isn't just a matter of a of a all up allegedly seeking twenty fifty thousand dollars cash payments and in legal hot he even goes beyond that because it shows that the north Houston in fall river but everywhere with that licenses of being issue that there's a vulnerability to abuse by local officials in this should not be the case I'll explain why but when the ledges the in two thousand sixteen when the voters approved of the the marijuana law the the legislature established a system that we were staying at really protecting the integrity commission is appointed by the governor the Attorney General and the treasurer these are all responsible public officials they have these very high level people to try the problem with you did up more than a thousand pages of regulations to make sure that the licenses of the awards fairly what's happened is been allegations not just in fall river but elsewhere that the local officials are putting the squeeze on to in order to save her one applicant over another and that's what's that's what this was seen today in fall river engine that's a good point because we have heard that settled companies depart depart companies are coming in and saying they have to deal with the local communities on this year it's it's about three percent but they also one of the things and and you've seen that in the applications enough's outs I've read many of them myself the application say we will do this for you community we will do that few community we will hire from your community we will hire people who are who are you know under privileged in your community they are making promises chest to get the permission to open their doors in this it's basically a gold rush for who you know or green rush for for weed it's did the sales of weed in Massachusetts are really high in and and it's really the business is booming are you know will it ever level lost probably but we have only just begun to see all of this come true and you know what it is another thing Greg is Boston hasn't even opened up a pot shop yet right I mean this is no well this is where we yeah you you gave a good description about I won't I won't put a bull's eye on exactly what is being alleged in the fall river case so when the when the legislature and the officials came up with the with the slayer awarding process which is really expensive at the state level they couldn't chew little steps with the local cities and towns could have a voice one is they they want to uphold any particular vendor they can this isn't that didn't sell this is this is the whole that in that the mayor fall river is alleged to be abusing it's not just a three percent pay out to the cities and towns in various forms that's part of it but the big Cork is that the in that case it's the it's a ledge of the mayor had unilateral control as to whether he would issue a non opposition the letter for a vendor this is this is the veto power that they had so when I was I G. weird allegations where vendors was say six vendors in the city we're asking to open a pot shot well the city gives an opposition letter to five of them they just chose in the winter you see visions of this completely subverts the system so only one name goes out to these this elaborate for your system it's a great it's a rating system it makes in by by virtue of the fact that the local official in this case was threatened to give it a an opposition letter that's was the hope they they get so you if you don't give me the money then I am going to give you an approximate kill you on that one of the lowest blow you up and this is a vulnerability that has to be fixed and it is a very serious problem and we asked that very question to the canvas control could should and I did try to put out a request for to interview the head of the commission Mr Hoffman Stephen Hoffman but they said the commission added one line Greg the commission has an active strong suitability standards for licensure and registration that include mandatory disqualification of applicants and licensees that have any outstanding on resolve criminal proceeding that may result in a felony conviction well that is kind of after the fact well that's a good that's a good thing but it's really off point to what your reporting a barrel today and I thought that your that your coverage was really amazing reading it online yes now that yes the state says you if you have criminal records good luck with a full view of simply stated but this is what I'm talking about is something different what I'm saying is that they gave the cities and towns the right conceal local the wrong they've got an ear to the ground they know the little people if they object to a particular vendor that vendors out so this is the threat and this and this is and this is what is what happened in fall river ridge that they is that a local vendor is supposed to be in this competition next thing you know it's a ledge some creepy mayors and their office looking for two hundred fifty thousand dollars in cash and walking out with marijuana what is that this is supposed to be a assistance is you know you received his wife and all the up and up and but before it even gets into the process in this case what allegedly a corrupt mayor has has threatened coerced and extorted allegedly the businesses before he even gets up to it's like it's like it's like because somebody before you even get to court they they kill you I know it's it's this I I agree with you that this is it's gonna be a wake up call it has to be a wake up call to the to the commission to the governor to the Attorney General this is got to be a wake up call because these days now at last count this twenty four part shops in Massachusetts and that's a combination of medical marijuana he and legal marijuana so that you you go from Pittsfield took to Brookline as I said has in Staten Boston yet but it's going to they can have up to fifty up to fifty part shops in the city of Boston but I think this is a wake up call to the state of Massachusetts that they have a problem here because as you said according to the indictment and I have in front of me and I'm gonna posted online once we get out of this a podcast thank you for coming on the mayor of Korea into the diamond agreed to issue as you said non opposition lettuce tomorrow the vendors which are required to order to you know required you need them to open up you shop in return for cash bribes the bribes alleged today this is you know federal US attorney here boss allowing that he says to the bribes alleged today range from one hundred thousand dollars to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in cash not that that's not jump James yeah you you know one thing to know to know about this is when the government takes the control of a monopoly business on the bundle to abuse what I mean is let's say for example with cab licenses to this they will only be so many cab licenses and we know what happened there was that people was selling cab licenses of this is five years ago for eight hundred thousand dollars in Boston in other words nothing Lucas now yeah unfortunately or action saying fortunately but but but we'll burn less when that when that came in kind of kind of put the truce changed to something but in this case only certain companies would be able to sell marijuana in those companies are going to make a lot of money millions so with some government official shootings in some office somewhere is it has the ability to tap with that company with the war measures warned and they commit multi millionaires that's probability to abuse it was not supposed to be that way and I agree with you Joe this should be a wake up call to the cannabis control commission became must control commission has some really good people on it including the chairman but what happens is the floor even gets to them that's what the shenanigans apparently as we see in fall river have been going on they give you did they at the end of this case they let the local officials abuse this local opposition thing known opposition letter if you don't give me money or if you do so don't do something else then we can give you an opposition letter to you and you're done yes that's what it says yeah it's a dictionary definition of blackmail it is it's a direction it's it's a dictionary definition of blackmail or conversely extortion and that's what the judge is out today I think you bring up a good point and I do agree I have met the the cannabis control commission chairman Mr Hoffman multiple times he is he is a you know a wise guy wise man he has worked in business for many years he knows what he's doing but I agree that it I think I think I agree with you that pushing it down to the local level so they can get their cut the three percent cut has exposed a weakness possibly I mean I am looking at this as a watchdog as you out too hi yeah I think they have we have exposed a weakness this indictment the federal and leveling even said it he's worried also that this does why do why give maybe take the power away from local community say okay you know of a that's that suggestion that you just made is the very first time I ever heard that suggestion but I want to tell you I agree with what you're suggesting gel another words the by by virtue of the process the legislature they want to give the local officials in cities and towns some ability to reject local applicants but again that's become the the gigantic hole through which this this corrupt practice occurred in fall river and it should be stopped because yes the cities and towns have ability under the law of the song they can say is where plot shop can go they can also say we won three percent of the proceeds from local causes that's in the law right so that doesn't bother me that they do that it bothers me is the third time that that should be in town can put a veto on in any particular company and nasty abuse in this case it's a ledge of the mayor fall river said if you don't give me this money here we are behind closed doors on to make this conversation about giving you this threat if you don't give me this money we're going to send a letter I will send the letter the mayor that will kill your project that's the abuse of this no need for that the the the cannabis control commission should simply abolish that what she should proceed and say look we've got we have a big bureaucracy we have really experienced people will determine the best applicant is and will award that yet that puts it back in the sort of into.

Pro quest dot com slash go slash NPR. It's six oh seven. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Noel king. Good morning for years. Some of the biggest tech companies in the US have operated without very much government oversight. Now the federal government is looking into these companies for possible. Anticompetitive behaviour officials at the department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commissioner getting ready to review. You how Facebook Google Amazon and apple deal with the competition. The House Judiciary committee is also carrying out investigation of its own the question on all of this is why now, Bruce, Hoffman is director of the bureau of competition at the US Federal Trade Commission. He's on the line from New York morning, Mr. Hoffman. Good morning. So before we get to the why now what is the FTC doing exactly? It's been reported that you're increasing increasing scrutiny of these companies, you've set up a task force. What does this mean on the ground? Well, let me I will say that. I don't want to comment on any specific pending investigation. But I think what we've been doing has been fairly visible. It's really so far been in two major directions. One is we've been conducting a series of hearings on competition policy consumer protection policy, and that has touched a lot of the digital space on technology companies and second as you noted we set up recently technology task force, which was a new division inside the bureau of competition of the with a group of anti-trust lawyers supported by some economists. Who are focused on this area to try to better understand it to develop our knowledge and be able to produce the area in sophisticated and complete way what technology companies doing or what is the set of circumstances that has concerned the FTC so much that it's ready to investigate well again without talking about specific conduct that we might be looking at what I would say is there's, there's obviously been a lot of public discussion about number one. The size of the technology companies released with some of them in the fact that they've been large for a long time. Now that in and of itself is not inherently anti-chavez problem successful company, because you're really good at what you do. But there's been a lot of claims of anti competitive behaviour, whether acquiring firms that could have been your competitors or engaging in conduct that would be aimed at squelching competition favouring your own services now again, that might or might not be an antitrust problem in and of itself. But it's the sort of thing that you might wanna look into but there have been concerns about. This for years, the things that you just laid out. This is nothing new. Why didn't you do something earlier? Well, I think, you know, first of all in terms of earlier this in what we've been looking at recently as the last couple of years, and this area was a big priority for chairman Simon's Joe, silences currently the TC when he came to the commission that's only a year ago now. Okay, so from that period to present. And then there's a certain amount of developmental time that goes into anything, we do one of the hallmarks of the FTC, and this is true, the department of Justice, as well, is that we like to really ever fact street, we do a lot of investigating. We do a lot of background work to make sure that when we actually engaged in forcement action were doing so on a sound factual basis. So there's an awful lot of work that goes into this now, having said that we have been bringing cases, involving digital platforms and technology. But they've been cases that have been triggered by specific investigation. So he currently have a litigation filed against a digital platform in the prescribing. Space called sure scripts. We had a merger challenge last year, involving digital platforms actually in the auto dealership business called CD K automate, where we sued actually a block merger and the merger was abandoned in the face of our of our lawsuit. So we've been doing things in this space, but in terms of the larger issues, there's a lot of development that goes into bringing cases, the dynamic here, at least from the outside appears to be that regulators have really struggled to keep up with innovators. And I wonder you said, you do have to get your facts, right? You do have to do a lot of research is that the reason that it seems the government is always a couple steps behind the big tech companies. I don't think we're behind the big tech companies I will say, I've been doing any shows enforcement now for longer than I want to admit, but, but this is actually a, a theme that recurs over and over again the late nineteen ninety s there is a great deal of public angst over the government's inability to do any trust in what was then the tech space the dot com world. Microsoft world. And it turned out to be overblown. Right. The Microsoft case proceeded, a lot of people have argued that the result of that case is what opened the door for today's tech companies. So and by the way, if you go back through the history of antitrust all the way back to the early twentieth, century, you find this constant issue, where every ten years, or every fifteen years, some new technology rises, the public, it's all overawed about it saying, well, antitrust can't possibly keep up with us. You can't keep up with automobiles. You can't keep up with computers. You can't keep up with, you know, whatever the current technology is. But ultimately, any choice has proven able to adapt into I think engage in good sensible enforcement, and just quickly tech companies have said, look, you come after us, dismantling foreign tech firms will fill the void does that worry, you or is it not your job to be worried about that? So we, we focused on competition policy, and we don't view it as our it within our expertise or within our mandate to worry about industrial policy or anything like that or trade policy. There are other parts of. The government that do that. We look at competition and our goal is to protect US consumers American consumers from anti competitive harm. And so if we find that harm we will take action, Bruce, Hoffman is director of the bureau of competition at the US Federal Trade Commission. Thank you, sir. For your time. Thank you. Members of an oppressed religious minority of had to take extreme steps to survive. They are ZD's. We're live in northern Iraq, where many died or were enslaved when ISIS seized the region five years ago, now that ISIS has been driven back ZD's are slowly returning to view. And some have now turned up inside a detention camp for ISIS families NPR's, Jane raff had one dramatic story after another about the CDs and she has now met one young ziti woman who was hiding among ISIS wives. I'm sitting on the floor with navene deny in a house in a quiet village in northeastern Syria, denies twenty four former radio announcer. It's the very morning. She's been freed from the camp. She says she feels reborn. Now all select dream for me. Now, I know. All I am so happy tonight was detained with thousands of others. When the last piece of ISIS territory fell in March. She ended up in the detention camp too afraid to tell anyone she was ziti. We're at the home of ESCD official who got her out of the camp. She's still dressed in a long, black skirt. She wore among ISIS wives. She wears glasses with thick black frames. She switches to the Arabic, she learned from the fighters who would slaved her for five years, high energies haunted hall. But when it came to alcohol I wanted to surrender, but I was afraid, maybe they would say I was ISIS. There were a lot of things. I was afraid of done. Hopefully, our buddy be be. What do can't? She was even afraid she would somehow be sent to an American prison and INA until yesterday. All my days were spent in fear if I revealed myself it was afraid if I didn't reveal myself I was afraid. Peanut about for weeks. She moved from tent to tent in the heavily-guarded foreigner section of the camp, staying with women who left Europe and other places to live under ISIS. They're eleven thousand women and children in the foreigner section. So it was easy to hide deny learned English in the camp. She says she lost track of time. She might have been there a month. It might have been three months when they lack when months for me, she was afraid of the Kurdish Syrian guards, so they wouldn't see her face. She didn't go to the market to the western women, she stayed with. She called herself, Aisha or emphatic typical Muslim names and the map when I didn't tell anyone I was CD when they would say, where are you from? I would say excuse me, I don't want to say where I'm from, and they would say, okay, okay. A now and then one day she heard a Kurdish journalist from the part of Iraq where she's from interviewing a group of British ISIS wives. She told some of the women who she really was a has.

"So if you're, you're not extremely intelligent, or don't wanna lean on the intelligence and you're not extremely disciplined to go after the execution. You better be really really, really good. At your offer, right? You'd better have that clear offer that everybody wants but they can't seem to find. And again, I'm not saying that execution couldn't be helpful because it's in the formula, but. Because what I've seen I've seen so many smart people come to me, and they're struggling just have guy last week, I won't mention his product is that a product out these spent a lot of money putting it together, and nobody wants to buy it. And I obviously see the offer problems with it. And he's extremely intelligent person got great discipline and execution. But what good does that did he if nobody wants to buy it, and I? Struggled with this myself, where I have an idea. I think it's a great idea. I spent six months for the idea together in that I go to sell it, and I get depressed this. No one wants. And I think that's common among Moore's with other selling, physical products or digital products or consulting, or what have you. So if that's the case. And I'm not alone. Not this, what do we do about it? I think diabolically trying to figure it out in our heads is the wrong place to do it. So I call it going in a corner, immensely masturbating. So we try to go in the corner. We think, you know what are these people want. And we just sit in a corner, without any market involvement without going to the market and seeing what's happening in the market, and we just try to kind of mentally masturbate. Right. And say what would they want? I think the other thing too is that part of it is an sound like a beating up on people. But I think part of it is, as we think about our product. That's where our attention goes, right? And that's not a good place to develop product or position, your product. We wanna be where the people are. Right. So the example, sometimes I kinda use pretend to be go to farmers market, where they're selling vegetables, and fruits and all that kind of stuff. And if we were just sit there and observe and see what's happening so that we'll see some breakthroughs right? So for, like observing. Tomato stand. Right. We're watching the customers come up in their squeezing the tomatoes, and they're smelling them. Whatever they're doing to him. They ask the, the vendor like are these organic and the vendor says? No, they're not organic and there. Like, is there any organic tomato sellers in this market? They're like, no, there's not. And then if we keep seeing somebody coming up late in the keep asking for organic tomatoes unders. Nobody supplying it. It's like ding, ding, ding. Ding, ding, ding. Right. That might that might be something there. Right. I think you're a billionaire fan, like Mr. Hoffman was kinda give an example at this standing inside of the airport, and everybody's standing align. But I was back in the seventies or eighties. Right. And he says, like this is ridiculous. And a lot of times it comes from frustration is ridiculous. Right. And he just gets out of line in Boley brashly, like an idiot might do and he's idiot by. But just he just says, I'm here. Yes, if any of you guys would. Pay extra money if you didn't have to stand in this line. Right. And, and every raises her hands. I'll hell yeah. We pay extra money we'd have to stand in this line. Right. So I think he came up with, like the first computer kiosks for the airport right now. He's an intelligent dude. But I've seen plenty of people in the park per about labelling this, how idiots get rich is. I don't really wanna pointed tube me of my friends, or associates. Right. But you can point to me if I'm ever, an example. I have somebody, I can point to any certainly not an idiot, but I wouldn't say he's he would consider myself to be extremely intelligent, or great execute. But he has a business in the stock trading in education space..

Looks like me and AJ got a little bit of a split decision here and nothing strong, both with leans. I'll let AJ headed up. What say you, Mr. Hoffman Virginia? Now kind of in control their own destiny if they went out they win the the ACC tournament or they win the ACC regular season title and probably a one seat in the NC double as they still haven't lost. Anyone not called Duke and Duke remains the only top twenty win. Syracuse can claim their they're one in five straight up two and four against the spread against top twenty Kim palm teams and Virginia just one they're six straight. They're five and one against the spread since at sick. Duke loss, including road winds at Virginia Tech at North Carolina. And at Louisville all teams that are rated higher than Syracuse accused seventeenth in the country and adjusted defense, but since conference play began they're giving up six more points per hundred possession. So they're the seventh most efficient defense in the ACC since conference play started. So their defense that kind of boys their their overall numbers not as good once they've been in conference play and obviously Virginia of the most efficient offense and defense in the ACC. They've got the second most efficient defense in the country. Overall. Syracuse relies on turning teams over the best at the in the ACC doing it. But Virginia protects the ball. They've got the second lowest turnover per possession number in the conference. And while the UVA doesn't shoot a ton from outside. Typically, they are forty-one percent from three point range in conference play..

"Michigan. I feel the same way when they're at home. I tend to be on them when they're on the road. I tend to be against them. And Michigan has this Maryland games sandwiched between the home and home with Michigan state. And after what just happened against Michigan state? My guess is Michigan's got a little bit of a look ahead to Michigan state again the pattern that yeah. They should the Michigan won that first game sixty five fifty two over Maryland. That game was over five minutes in Michigan jumped out to a fourteen to lead and Maryland is just not the type of team built to play from behind. Two hundred and twentieth in the country and three pointers made their two hundred and fifty fourth in the country and tempo bay their team there a front runner they need to they need to at least be close in the game for their style of basketball to work. But Maryland, seven oh, seven and at home in big ten play that they've got one of the stronger home advantage advantages in the country. I'm gonna take Maryland in pick here. I I do think I'm gonna get some points with it. But either way I I like Maryland here. I lean I don't like I I lean towards Maryland here in this game play sleepy. I like on Maryland. And again, I got it a pick. And I did it before the final this Michigan Nebraska game. And I'm thinking, I'm catch points here. I mean, Michigan's just different home outside of the freaking Michigan state game. Of course when I like Michigan in that game. I mean, it's their only home loss and whatnot. Twenty four going back to last year dominant performance tonight for the wolverines on their home floor. But like AJ mentioned away from on their average three and three last six. I mean losses to you know, be blowout. Losses to Iowa Penn State, and I think Maryland's better than both of those teams even those teams have been relatively hot. I think we're buying Maryland low off their worst performance of the season. I blow out lost the Penn State. So I'll take that. And I didn't even factor in Michigan state's ondeck Michigan. You would think that they'd peek ahead after that abysmal bismuth effort that they had in the? Second half dome against the Spartans last Sunday. I'll take Maryland as a like, and you have another bet on your hands, Mr. sleeping. So you let you close it up. So you guys think that Michigan loses the guy do think they lose the game. So we're where do they go into seating with if they lose and then and as AJ just said they have to play Michigan state on the road. I think Michigan could play themselves down to a three seat. I think right now they're on the to line. And I think they could play themselves easily to the three see what what say you, Mr. Hoffman. Yeah. I kind of feel the same way. I feel like whoever wins that second game between Michigan Michigan state. Both. Those teams are in that to three range for me. I think it'd be hard to imagine either one. Well, Michigan state I could see them being a one-seat if things go the right way for them and they do well enough in the tournament..

"It doesn't include language about working to understand the risks of exposure to toxins that result from harmful algal blooms, these toxins can come through our drinking water inconven- extremely harmful to humans, and the and this Bill does not include the priorities and many members have fought for for their constituents. It does not include language that supports programs that impact Ohio as well. As many other states across the country. I cannot in good faith support legislation. Does. Not treat our Great Lakes as a national treasure. They are or invest in them to the fullest extent. Please stand with me today and sending a message to protect our Great Lakes. Here's my colleagues who oppose this Bill in its current form. We can do much better than this. We as members of the house must not abdicate responsibility of crafty spending bills in the best interests of our constituents. Thank you, again, Mr Speaker and I yield back to balance my time, gentlemen, yields gentlemen, from California reserves the gentlewoman from Minnesota's recognized. Mr. Speaker. I also hail from the Great Lakes. States and the funding in the Senate Bill and the house still for the Great Lakes was identical. So at least in in this. Portion of the funding. It was equal for both both the house and the Senate Mr Speaker, I yield two minutes to the gentleman from California. Mr. Hoffman, a member of the house natural resources committee Jonathan California's recognize I thank the gentle lady for yielding. And I rise today in support of this Bill to reopen. Our national parks and end the Trump shut down over the last three weeks. The conditions are national parks have reached unacceptable and unsafe levels as park employees are furloughed without pay and forced to keep quiet about the on going damage. Here's what some of it. Looks like dirty diapers. Coffee cups burrito rappers. That's just the start of what congresswoman Jackie speier. And I saw this past weekend as we joined volunteers for trash clean up at the Golden Gate national recreation area, which we both represent it took only a few minutes for us to fill to thirty two gallon trash. Cans with waste. We may soon have enough trash building up and our national parks to build a wall. Is that the idea Mr. Trump is at the backup plan to have our parks and park visitors and our professional park staff pay for the wall, you said Mexico would pay for and Mr Speaker the damage from the Trump shutdown does not in there. I have more than twenty-five federally recognized tribes in my district each of these communities faces serious financial, insecurity as a result of this shutdown. I refuse to stand by as Indian country suffers as our national parks suffer and as millions of Americans suffer. So the Donald Trump can't pretend he's building a medieval border wall. We need the house and Senate to pass the interior appropes Bill. We need the president to sign it to prevent further degradation of our public lands and protect the health and safety of tribal communities. This government does not belong to Donald Trump. It belongs. To the American people, and it's time to reopen. The government I urge a yes vote and yield the balance of my time gentlemen yields gentle woman from Minnesota reserves. Members are reminded to direct their comments.

Finally, WikiLeaks circulated a confidential legal memo to several news outlets outlining one hundred forty false and defamatory things. They should stop saying about WikiLeaks. And Julian Assange, the communique was probably prompted by reporting in the guardian where stories about Mr Assange is alleged meetings with then candidate Donald Trump's campaign operatives are being strongly denied by WikiLeaks. The confidential legal memo foreseeably leaked as soon as received may be read full and unredacted at ars Technica and elsewhere. The times of London is among those papers sniffing at the irony of leaks, pleading privacy and confidentiality, but in fairness to the house of leaks. We must say that having read their memo, it really is protesting inaccuracy not intrusiveness. Among the misapprehensions WikiLeaks. His lawyers are particularly concerned to correct are the following that Mr Assange is a paid Russian agent that WikiLeaks has members like al-qaeda as opposed to employees ease like the ones any legitimate media outlet would have and that Mr Assange, not only hates the United States. But also bleach his hair and neglects his cat. So not a bene, Mr. and MRs United States, Mr. Sohn's loves you. Where's his own unredacted hair and is good to his Catt?.
