"Made his devices unusually slow preventing him from organizing support within the company when we did fire him, our reputation and integrity took a hit. But at least other employees were afraid to speak up. This is what I always say. You don't have to burn down all the villages. You just have to burn down one firing him without an NDA was a huge risk though. He was a top performer. And new too many compromising secrets like Dragonfly the secret censored search project in China. He also reported several legally dubious practices in search. That means Google search. That's still exist. Only God knows why he never leaked Dragonfly or the other issues. But I think it's because he actually cared about Google our response after we fired him was equally disgraceful. We were supposed to have a town hall to answer these questions. However after questions started coming in that we couldn't reasonably answer we had to cancel it. We shifted the blame onto alt-right trolls and have avoided talking about it openly since then to control the narrative, we planted stories with journalists and flex Google's muscles where necessary in exchange for insider access and preferential treatment. All we ask for is their loyalty for online media Google ads pay their paycheck and our search brings their customers. So our influence should not be underestimated we dealt with the National Labor Relations board case in a similar way. People are ultimately lazy? So he found a sympathetic lawyer in the NFL are be and wrote the internal memo for her no one wanted to spend the effort to oppose it despite it being laughably week then. After day. More dropped his case and filed a class action lawsuit. We have the NLRB publicly released the memo that they had written for them. Our PR firm sent press release saying the NRO NLRB ruled the firing legal which was manufactured BS all our scheming was over the phone and deleted emails or through an external PR firm. So it was deniable now that we forced him into arbitration. We're close to screwing him over completely. I can't verify that this is accurate. James damore? But he clearly thinks it's accurate. Others are share. They think it's accurate, and it all certainly sounds plausible rings true and more than that. It is the playbook of how these companies do this.

"The torture memo. Yeah. The torture memo guy, right? So he was right. An assistant attorney general under George W Bush. He was the guy who wrote the memoranda. That said, yeah. No, torturing perfectly constitutional. So an unlikely source to be sited on this show. Not a, you know, crazy, radical lefty, and and he's written. He's written an article for the Atlantic. It of course, has an error in it because at a significant and kind of ridiculous error because he still John you like, let's not, you know, the, we're not we're not hanging not like, look, waterboarding. The attorney general is totally fine. It's not that just that's his only topic. He writes on you, you you might think that you would you would be forgiven. If you thought that the only thing you cares about is inflicting pain on on human beings. But so I this because again, this is a voice of the right and not somebody right? He's not part of the never Trump right either. Right. Like, this is somebody who has been pretty silent this entire. Airtime, and he hears his take. Remember, I said that any valuating the F ERA. The question is what sort of weight, do you give to the precedent of United States versus heat? Here's using Alicea. This this case which. I think I found interesting. He says defenders of the president's decision to appoint Whitaker. My reliant in eighteen ninety eight supreme court decision. United States versus eaten which allowed for the temporary appointment of a vice consul in Thailand, quote for a limited time and under special and temporary conditions and of quote, namely, the illness of the council and the vast distance between the US and Thailand, this is basically the approach of the two thousand and three Justice department opinion approving the elevations an assistant office of management and budget director to acting director and the likely reasoning of the White House in appointing Whitaker, and again as a sidebar the at the time that he wrote this the actual oh LC. Memorandum defending Whitaker in twenty eighteen was released. So, you know, again, not not the world's best scholarship here. But again, he's still John you. But, but I would add that that that is in fact, the reasoning relied upon in that. Oh, Elsie memorandum. You continues elevating practical needs over constitutional. Meaning however is not usually an attitude adopted by conservatives, they generally believe that the original understanding of the constitution held by those who ratified it should govern Justice Clarence Thomas. The coast the courts most committed originalist, and again, I'm not sure I would agree with that. But whatever set out precisely the reasoning of this article in concurring opinion in last year's NLRB versus s w general which we talked about on the show which struck down the recess appointment of NLRB officer, nor is it the view of the supreme court, which is continued to demand that all federal officers. Meet the appointment clauses requirements. It is difficult to see John Roberts court finding that the acting attorney general responsible for all federal law enforcement in the nation amounts to the same sort of officer as a Feis consul struggling in the hinterlands of Thailand before the days of air flight instantaneous communications, so a little bit of rhetorical flourish there. The the interesting thing here is an again kind of getting in the mindset of originalist. Conservatives is not something I'm good at. So I was thankful to you to do this. I look at this, right? As the way any normal lawyer would right, which is okay. The question is does an appointment necessitate the appointments clause. What's the prior case law? Oh, look US eaten eighteen ninety eight says if it's for a limited time, you know, under special temporary conditions than it's okay. The F ERA says that it's for a limited time. In fact, it is mandated that it's no more than seven months by statute. So that looks to be reasonably controlling, but that's not how a ridge think originalists say, what does the constitution say? The constitution says you've got to go back and an. Anybody who's a principal? Officer must be appointed with the advice and consent of the Senate. And this eaten case created this really narrow exception under exigent circumstances. Which was you're stuck in the middle of Thailand in the nineteenth century and the US government. We gotta do something. So okay, right. Fair enough. We can do this one weird trick. So that you know, we don't lose our ability to negotiate with Thailand. But then we gotta get we gotta get a guy in there as quickly as possible..
NLRB to publish joint-employer rule change tomorrow
"Board the NFL are beef those in the know made it official today. It's going to roll an Obama era rule that made union organizing a little bit easier. It's called the joint employer rule and let workers at franchises and temp agencies and subcontractors bring the big companies at the top of their supply chains into their labor disputes. So you might have seen a big fast food chain be accused of blocking worker rights at one of its franchise. For instance, now, though, the NLRB has changed its mind publishing a new joint employer rule that's more favorable to those big parent companies and the smaller companies that work for him. Marketplace's Mitchell Hartman reports the NLRB's proposed new rule would limit a big company at the top of the food chain from being held responsible for labor problems or having to bargain with union organizers at a franchisor staffing agency employers are reading a sigh of relief, Stephen softness that law firm Ballard Spahr represents employers in disputes over subcontracted workers many. Employers use labor suppliers to provide excess manpower at times of high demand. He says it raises the employer's liability if they're on the line for labor suppliers violations. Rick heating at the small business and entrepreneurship council says the current Obama era rule has suppressed startup activity. How many big businesses, for example, that franchise are going to continue franchising where they can get dragged into all sorts of labor disputes liberals and organized labor back. The more expansive joint employer rule. They point out this kind of arms length employment is on the rise and often comes with low wages and benefits. Kathy ruckus houses with the national employment law project, it's going to be much easier for companies to hide behind their subcontractors their staffing and temp agencies. And they're gonna be able to say, it's not my problem. She says those labor contractors often don't have the capital or legal coverage to d. Deal with demands for better, pay and working conditions.
