How Mark Zuckerberg Bought the 2020 Election
"A new story from the federalist says the 2020 election wasn't stolen, it was bought by Mark Zuckerberg. This is a true story of the account of how Mark Zuckerberg privatized the government's voter registration and vote counting for Democrats in 2020. The founding fathers always believed that if there was power there must be a check and a balance against that power. What is our check and balance against Mark Zuckerberg, spending $400 million during the 2020 election, Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, spent hundreds of millions of dollars to turn out likely democratic voters. But this wasn't traditional political spending William Doyle from the federalist rights. He funded a targeted private takeover of government election, operations by nominally non partisan, but demonstrably ideological nonprofit organizations. This was done through the center for technology and civic life CTCL. We've talked about this in great detail on the show, but this new story from the federalist is shocking. We talk we are always under, we are always accused. You are a threat to democracy as we did on the show previously, just type in threat to democracy and then go to news the Pandora papers are a threat to democracy. Trump is a threat to democracy, Bloomberg, how to save democracy. New York Times had a Conor how to counter pro Trump extremism and threat to democracy. Now, we are a republic not a democracy. But if you read this story, who's the real threat that democracy? The guy playing golf at Mar-a-Lago? Or the $420 million spent by Mark Zuckerberg, who put money into local government official races, and it came with strings attached.

"You know fast forward eighteen nineteen years later And my wife just as he arrives to negotiate with the taliban in doha excluding the government women civil society. Everybody else his wife cheryl bernard writes an article in which she effectively says. Western women weren't given their rights by people by kind people who came from far away. They fought for themselves and afghan. Women can't expect to be liberated they have to fight for themselves and so those two narratives are are kind of two sides of the same coin and they both served one thing and one thing. Only a outlaws was the interests of america. American policymakers after nine eleven and two years ago what. They wanted to do what they thought. It was. In the best interest of america it was never about the afghan people. So i think it's really important to remember when we hear this narrative solve. Oh you know there are. People at the airport aren't at risk and just trying to come here. Afghan women didn't do enough. The army didn't fight hard enough. You know the government was corrupt. You know afghanistan. It's been twenty years in the yukon. Expect a country to tun into switzerland off the emerging from conflict. Right it's just all of those narratives are deliberate taylor to push an agenda. Not agenda is this is about american interests and not about the afghan people So i think it's important to remember that and just have an honest conversation about how how policy is made and what's at the heart of these policies because then at least then we can think about what a workable potential solutions to address. What is about to happen in afghanistan which is a huge humanitarian crisis. That is gonna leave the rest of the world and touched. We now live in in in as much as we want to pursue Stick our heads in the sand. That's just not an option anymore Whether it's climate change whether it's women's rights we actually have to work together So i think questioned as narratives that that that sells the idea that we're gonna go and or the west is gonna go on police the world because you know they're trying to save people Because afghanistan is a perfect example of how gas lighting as a as an irish. If that is so it's good very good advice and something that we have to be very vigilant in trying to remind ourselves of constantly The one last question. I wanted to ask you then is looking ahead. What is the better scenario for. How afghanistan could look in a year or two years or three years. Like what is You're not gonna fix everything right at nor is a taliban gonna liberalize but at the same time. It's a different circumstance in the nineties. People have in some ways. Higher expectations people had twenty years of a different kind of system Into there's gonna be some some tension wh- what is the as someone who worked on this issue. Like what is the the better scenario that we should be aiming to try to facilitate or make more likely or that. Afghans themselves Are are hoping for in the years ahead. I mean i think i really wish i could answer that question in detail but i can't. There's you know the the situation is so influx time at the moment. But i think really just a couple of things. The first thing is As i mentioned we cannot turn our backs on afghanistan. It's just marlins strategically it would be the bad option. It would be odd policy-making On so we have to look at the kind of humanitarian issue. That the countries facing How do we make sure that the majority of the afghan people who need Who who going to need a lot of assistance during the winter able to survive are able to access basic services like food and Able to get basic medical care. You know these are real issues and we have to. We have to look at. How do to engage with the taliban no way that doesn't make them but also doesn't punish the afghan people who who have really suffered the marist So i think in a year from now. If we're for looking i can we say. Actually we prevented this huge humanitarian catastrophe We prevented lots of people from starving. And i think that's dots through. That's something that we should be able to do. And i think that's a good scenario. And i think i think that's the kind of very immediate needs and i think then looking at how do you continue to engage with the afghan people to make sure that the country doesn't go dark we don't just say you know what we're done This is now an afghan problem. And you know. Let's leave them to their fate. The taliban are representative so it is what it is And just make sure that we continue to engage with people you know with people across the country with women with young people To make sure that they know that they're you know they haven't been fully abandoned now are actually you know we are going to use other level other lovers whether it's diplomacy To continue to engage with the country. Then i think finally is making sure that those afghans manage to leave are not condemned to to this kind of hostile environment that we're seeing to make sure that they're able to continue their work. I think the preservation of this new generation of the knowledge of their you know expertise is really really key And so that they're able to continue the work that staying to benefit the country in the long term.

Obse has deep connections to afganistan herself and we really getting a perspective. An afghan perspective and the perspective of someone who worked with afghan women in civil side in recent years to try to happened more inclusive peace process what happened sahara walks through how life is changing for afghans under the taliban what the united states might do going forward sport the afghan people what lessons.

A lot. you'll hear a totally different perspective from sahara and one that is representative of african women in civil societies. I really encourage people to check it out.

"Forty. Two authority has also been challenged in court so This is the second state department aid to resign over the treatment of haitian refugees. The i was the special envoy to haiti But i suspect that this won't be the last as long as this. Laws kept in place which some worth watching. Yeah i mean he. He's a big figure in international legal and in humanitarian struggles. So jericho doesn't like that. It gets a lot of attention You know he also made him constructive suggestions to. He wasn't protesting. He said there could. Yes a memo. I'll may not get them all in but you know he's suggested that more could be done to determine whether some of these people have family in the united states that they're you know more effort to be put into jude accounting. Obviously asylum claims raising questions about whether the deportations should be back to haiti. Because in some cases these people have been outside of haiti for years and been in chile in other countries. And and so what. What is the Is it is the right thing to deport people back to someplace that is dangerous. They haven't even been for a while. So i raised a bunch of questions and also you know raise new some more humane ways of dealing with this issue. I saw the biden team. Essentially kind of revert to the point that this is a cdc tech decision that so long as there. Is this kind of medical emergency. That their hands are tied in some ways because they have to follow the cdc determination before they can move beyond using this measure. But look i mean. I i think in some circumstances right you. Just you have to take into account the extreme circumstance of what's going on in haiti All the things that recently happened there the assassination the earthquake and the images. Frankly that americans have seen and so many people have been horrified by. So i think this shows that they're going to have to put more attention into the border question. Ozzie generally which are doing. But this this haiti question in particular. Yeah i mean look. I don't understand title. Forty two's ins and outs or what the cdc hanner shouldn't do. But i do know that you know. A lot of people are critical of the trump administration use of title to expel migrants and really unravelled. The they're the asylum process and i think Still using that authority to send people out of the country when we have vaccines and other tools to manage covert. I think just feels. Will you make you make a really good point though. Which is that the trump people were trying to dismantle the asylum process. Obviously like steve miller. They're clear objective and they use this to kind of finish the job and so that intent should matter. The trump didn't make didn't make some cc based determination here is like oh let me weaponize this thing to do this and and so i think even though there may be a bureaucratic reason a rationale behind it and the original motivation for the use of title forty two was felt more like a punitive measure to shut the border than it did a public health consideration. Yes a little. Stephen miller yeah. Buchan fantasy Ben wild boars are back in the news. So shakira the singer superstar. She was walking in a park in barcelona with her son when to wild boars attacked her stole her purse and then ran off with it into the woods. this news was mostly reported by shakira herself. The so thank god that facebook didn't go down that day but as we know She doesn't lie. Her hips also. Do not lie so it has to be true now. Wild hogs are apparently a growing menace in barcelona according to the bbc news. Spanish police got nearly twelve hundred. Wild hog related calls in twenty sixteen in. This report also said that quote in two thousand thirteen one city. Police officer attempted to take charge of the problem himself and shot at a bar with his service revolver but missed and hit his partner instead. I feel like that anecdote in this bbc. News story raise more questions than it. Yeah yeah where's the follow up story on that guy but for real these wild hogs suck they carry disease. They can live almost anywhere. They eat trash there like an true invasive species get aggressive so i don't know let's hope they're not gone in for you know pop stars in the mid two thousand or else sean. Paul james blunt tasha.

That was that was real fun. Fucking trip yeah. You mentioned that story. I was like hanging out with secure an obama making some announcements about like education. She's a huge figure in colombia. The lesson that to cross these things together. You ever watch zootopia on why you would. Oh yeah i've seen this good movie. So secure has got a star turn in that. Great song I forget what kind of animal. She is in that but she was integrated into the animal. Kingdom is utopia. i don't know why that's relevant in some fashion popped in my head. I was trying to think of their wild boars zootopia because she might have had experience. I'm saying at least in a voiceover context dealing with it. I don't know is apparently very impressive. It sounds like i don't know that. She fought off the wild boars per se. But it does sound like that. She and her son She had her son with One of those soccer stars who so famous he only as like one name like gerard or something like that She asked him to vouch for her bravery in this instagram story. That she posted about the board. I no data out of her bravery. I i also just so people know that communist. Don't do this alone. Our producer michael martinez just put in the chat.

Somehow we got from shakira to the secret service prostitution scandal in an get segment in columbia so By memory of that by the way is. I learned of that news when i was at a dinner with nine reporters and i think of julie pace from the associated press was emailing me from across the table with eight other reporters around us that they had gotten this anonymous tip to one of their tip lines and they are about to report on like trying to manage a story with like you know like everyone around me trying to see what i'm typing about. It was not it was not fun. It was so awful because like it was you know of course. Us press fair to them into good story right much. Yeah you're not getting tonight one. Yeah but like the any hope of of getting any coverage of the summit of the americas or the success to columbia went out the window.

"That if we want to crack down on the capacity for really corrupt and bad actors to be hiding money and stashing it in places in stealing from their own people putting it somewhere else. We need to be making continued reforms to bring greater transparency enforcement to this system of of international finance man. There's just so many pieces of the saying. I mean like there's one like in case you think this is like not a big deal. People just avoiding taxes. No there's a story about how criminals mobsters in like just the worst people on the planet. Uc's accounts in like believes for example to hide from accountability. There's stories in here. There's one story about putin's mistress having estimated net worth of one hundred million dollars including the luxury apartment in monte carlo. There's stories about us sanctions in their impact on russian sharks. And then you not to the point you made at the start ben. I mean we knock cayman islands tax codes in the way you'll have like buildings with fifty thousand addresses in the same building incorporated. Say place i mean. Part of this reporting out of this piece is that south dakota has become a massive tax entrust shelter like on the same order of some of the things. You've seen offshore me like we're literally were on. Shoring young yeah. We are worst practices to shut out to my mom right now. i'm in new york city My parents and they they have built A couple of buildings being constructed in one's already built right across the street from my parents and they basically tore down kind of old apartment buildings and they're putting up these really glitzy new buildings taller than my parents pardoned. But they're only like ten apartments. Derek god knows how much these things cost and nobody lives in the buildings right. Why is that interesting. It's interesting because part of what a lot of investigations revealed the new york city. For instance is a lot of real estate luxury real say. The united states is not people buying places to live. It's people from places like russia like putting money into a real estate in the united states. Often through anonymous you know Interest anonymous shell companies so that they can hide money here or they can blonder money into real estate here. I mean so much of our system just facilitates this kind of stuff and it's going to require a lot of effort to turn them around another quick piece in this you mentioned putin and you talked about it being early because i think some people might say well look these big reports come out and nothing really changes and so do they even matter. There's usually a tale to these things so we talked about wikileaks last week in some of those cables took a year or two but but but you know ultimately if they reveal corruption. They're these kinds of mini-scandals at grow. Grown grow inside of countries. And the the the the more people learn about this kind of behavior in this kind of corruption The the the greater vulnerability there are for political leaders. Whether it's putin you know in the report. Their allegations of kind of what he was doing for a mistress and potential child. That people don't know about and king abdullah was huge amounts of money. He's moving around different places. I would be cautious in saying. Oh there's no just because the world doesn't change in a week doesn't mean these things matter. These things accumulate over time. And i think the impression of certain leaders being corrupt certain governments being corrupt is building and that does create internal pressures over time and i think the exposure of this kind of corruption should be an objective in and of itself. Because that's part of how we have to combat autocracy y- panama papers. I think toppled a couple of governments Then when you give your mama shot. I i was imagining her. Like slew thing through this new building like only murderers in the building in this show on hulu like chasing down some dark on the sixth floor. Somehow my mom gets get information about like how many people like are actually in these apartment. Buildings apartments bringing. There's a. there's definitely a wire that she's to here I know where she gets her info. But it's good info. I think the international consortium of journalists should call her a letter to facebook so yesterday monday october fourth facebook and facebook owned up went completely offline for about five hours so in the us that was met with a lot of jokes.

Ben so the new york times piece on this day reported that two point seven six billion people two seven six billion people use one facebook product per day and that what's up the messaging service is used to send more than one hundred billion messages per day that scale Gets out the point. That i think is important understand here. Which is that for a lot of people. facebook is the internet. many hold don't have access to or can't afford cell phone service But they can find free wifi and they use it to access facebook to the washington. Post another story on this and they noted that in seven countries including kenya malaysia and colombia's big important countries more than ninety percent of people aged sixteen to sixty four are monthly whatsapp user. So again like the impact that this outage had was hundreds of millions if not billions of people had no way to really communicate for part of the day so on tuesday today a former facebook employee and whistleblower testifying capitol hill about the damage. Facebook costs before this outage I haven't been able to watch a lot of it. But some of the partial reporting i saw was good in that it suggested that there was a conversation not just about like how facebook was impacting. Us but also the lack of oversight in content. Moderation abroad then. I don't know how much of this these hearings you caught today. Or how you're feeling about the odds. After the outage in these you know this whistleblower report that regulation might be in the offing. Or you know something else. I think there's two pieces to this right autocracy and there's antitrust and they're somewhat related but to take the autocracy i and that's what this whistle blower. I think you know. I take her comments. As is validating of the idea that that facebook just doesn't give a shit about anything other than prophet and so the fact that you know. Their algorithms in their product is having an impact on foreign countries that is incredibly corrosive to democracy that as long as facebook makes a buck. They don't really care what the consequences are. Look that was you know. There's always a part of me that when this happens in and you see kind of headlines you're like you know how this is obviously. We've all been talking about this for years. But that doesn't mean it's not useful that the whistle blower comes forward because a whistleblower even if they are confirming what you already suspect to be true that triggers congressional hearings in that can add to the momentum for the necessary regulation. A facebook will not protect public health and safety in the united states and around the world through its platform. That's when governments have to regulate things and here they'd have to regulate the them and they'd have to introduce some sense of liability for facebook for for for the poison literally that It's spreading online. So good for this whistle blower. I encourage other facebook employees to come forward and be part of this debate. Like if you are part of an enterprise it that you feel like internally you're not getting a reaction You know there are times when airing these concerns publicly Can can make a positive difference. Obviously we on the other end of that and government so its own that obviously so. There's always tension here. Which i understand but i think this is. This is obviously advanced debate on the the. What's that point. I really jumped out to me yesterday. Tommy because almost everybody. I communicate with internationally including like the types of activists we here on the show they everyday live on. What's at enduring. The afghan evacuation for instance all those efforts Including efforts by us veterans and ngos to get people out those were all what's app groups party was thinking like what would have happened if his outage happened in.
"pandora" Discussed on The Breakdown with NLW
"Moving. Over to the crypto side. There is more than a fair bit of complaining about the hypocrisy given that we're the industry that officials routinely point to as for criminals or for people who are just looking to obscure their wealth. My is a hobby tweets funny how regulators and legislators couldn't care less about offshore tax avoidance but are willing to crack down on an entire industry where a younger generation is making their own wealth just to get their hands on alleged tax avoidance follower dino. The cto of bit fixed and tether rights can't wait for the mainstream media commentary on pandora's papers to be like yes seven gazillion dollars where masked but a dude had one thousand two toshi and a wallet. See how bitcoin can be used for bad stuff. Dustin watchman tweets when any politician or wealthy individuals says. Bitcoin is for criminals. He should cross reference the panama papers and pandora papers to see if their name has been exposed for conducting criminal acts. I'm guessing there's a high correlation between the two now. There is another line of analysis or question about whether this will make people actually switch to crypto at andhra part on twitter who is a hong kong and london based distressed debt investor. Went on a ritalin. Fueled tear last night. And i say that not malign him he said so as he was tweeting. Now he's taken these down. But i do think that they provide some insight into a way of looking at this whole situation. He writes the panama papers revealed hong kong to be the most active jurisdiction for shell companies in the entire world. I one hundred percent banking on some ccp officials being linked up to these companies once again editor's note and i'll w. here again. I should say that there is no evidence of that so far. This is one of the areas that is rampant speculation on his part but back to his tweet thread. The problem in hong kong isn't regarding taxes really hong kong as a global offshore hub and tax haven but the identification of the beneficiaries of trusts foundations and shell limited companies. It's going to be very expensive to set up new shells. Expect a lot of uptick in crypto activity as people try and move their cash across the otc desks and hong kong and singapore into the custody of newly set up show. Coz sat your hong kong. Tycoon you want to hedge your political risk and set up a bunch of foreign shells two by london property and your kids and university lived there. Now you get dachshund. Everyone knows that the house is owned by you. Did you break the law. No screwed yes. The problem with the leaks at least in hong kong has nothing to do with breaking the law except for chinese government officials hiding assets but everything to do with privacy. Going up in flames also. People don't want business relationships and associates public. The interesting thing here is one. This speculation that maybe some of this activity moves to crypto. Which by the way. I don't think is very good for us as a lot of speculation but to the idea that in many cases this isn't really about breaking the law. It's about financial privacy. it's about secrecy. It's about not wanting your purchases to be available and known to everyone. Npr points out this gray area that there is a difference and it's important to keep in mind between financial secrecy and outright tax evasion from npr quote according to the authors the term offshore banking was originally coined to refer to island nations with lax finance laws that allowed people to hide their assets but now it refers to places outside of a person's home country where they can shelter their money without having to abide by the rules where they live. Offshore accounts are not necessarily illegal many of the companies that responded to the journalists request for comment said they had not broken any laws but account holders can use offshore trusts and shell companies for illicit purposes such as to avoid paying taxes or to fund criminal enterprises. This gets to one other weirdness about all of this that there is no focus on the. Us of the three hundred and thirty six politicians identified. None is from the. Us this has a lot of people's scepticism raised ben norton from grey zone tweets. What a coincidence that there are zero. Us politicians included in the pandora papers list of offshore bank accounts. I guess they're all pure and free from corruption. I'm sure this has nothing to do with the fact that the so called leak was likely a hacked by us spy agencies. I will note. I have seen nothing additional to support this thesis that the league is a hack from us agencies. But i will say that. It's pretty notable that there are no. Us politicians are really us. notable figures. Implicated here the obvious. Non conspiratorial answer to that. Is that these. Fourteen firms happened not to be ones that tend to deal with. Us nationals in other words. You could assume that there are firms that deal with us nationals. It's just not these fourteen. That's sort of my default base case understanding right when you have a leak you don't get to pick which it is and presumably there are network effects of trust around how the wealthy get to these different firms and so these might just not serve that clientele. I certainly think that it's very unlikely that this indicates that. Us nationals are not part of this overall enterprise one of their angle. That i think is worth noting is there were many many from latin america particularly from argentina. Implicated in the pandora papers. Argentina has extremely strict capital controls and there are many who think that those sort of capital controls are in fact relatively unjust that they come often from corrupt political administrations and there is some moral ethical gray area around finding ways to get around them. I pointed this out only to point out that it's very easy to get swept away in the look the wealthier just abusing the system to avoid paying their fair share. And there's probably more than enough of that to go around but as with all things. It's not that simple. Necessarily global context global political context matters to more ways of looking at all this before we close. The first is that this is going to be one big. Massive nothing burger. Allan mcleod a senior staff writer and podcast producer at mit press. Writes the way. Corporate media are massively. Hyping up these pandora papers means you can be completely sure. They pose absolutely zero threat to western state or corporate power unlike with wikileaks stuff for the snowden revelations few if any important in the west will be exposed. This is a cynical but based on the reception of the panama papers and the paradise papers probably pretty accurate cynical take but finally and. Here's the one that i'm most worried about. And i think is the reason to really pay attention to this. That's the idea that these will be used as justification for a clampdown crypto. Bit lord rights pandora papers or old news but watch the narrative. Being spun new laws will come out of this more international cooperation and in the end higher tax for everyone in arctic carlos dos a popular anonymous. Fintech account. tweeted my guess. This has been orchestrated and released on time for a global tax. Crackdown in an era of increased fiscal pressure. So the take here is that what will come out of. This is governments particularly the us government saying something to the effect of. See how rampant. This is this is why we need more power to survey our financial markets even with all these new rules the bank secrecy act. Kyc am regimes. We still don't have enough power to stop this type of thing. Give us more power. Oh and by the way this is why we need more. power over. Crypto because crypto is the next generation of this type of tool to avoid taxes and to avoid are larger legal structures. Now of course the alternate take would be that even with all the power that they have been granted even with all of the billions of dollars that have been spent on regimes like the bank secrecy act and the kyc regime. There still powerless to stop this type of activity. The answer isn't more power but a fundamentally different strategy a different way of looking at the problem in a different way of looking at the solutions. If feels hard to imagine how someone will summon up. The political will to make that argument when it's so much easier to say. Look at all these corrupt billionaires hiding their wealth from you it seems counter to the times and the mood of the times to actually think very differently about this but one can hope to sum up. What the pandora papers have to do with bitcoin. The answer is not much yet but maybe a lot. They're part of a larger zeitgeist a larger attempt by the powers that be to take more power to point to these sorts of leaks not as examples of the inefficacy of the extremely stringent approaches. They've taken for years such as the bank. Secrecy act but instead to clamor for more power for more control over the financial system i think in other words that the pandora papers are part of the larger macro frame set that is going to set the tone of discussions around how bitcoin and crypto should and will be regulated in the months and years to come until tomorrow guys be safe and take care of each other piece..
'I'm Called by the Gospel to Accept You... That Doesn't Meant I Have to Approve of Your Lifestyle'
"Let's go back to two thousand fifteen when you said that. The supreme court makes this law saying that Two men can get married or two women can get married and it's a funny thing right because we can still say well. I love my gay friends just the way that i love my my friends that they don't work they don't walk with jesus i love them but i'm not going to say that's a good thing i'm not gonna say it's great that you're not walking with jesus i'm gonna love you but i have my conscience won't let me affirm you in that. It is a strange thing that you and i have gone to point our lifetimes. We're not that old but we're the quote unquote law of land has for the first time ever become into to what this says in a very bold way so when that happened because i didn't know you in twenty fifteen how many others who else was boldly speaking about this. You know to be honest with ya. Everybody seems to be silent about all the issues. And so i think because i did come out and say something and nobody else. Was everybody just kind of gravitated to us. And so we had this wave of growth not just in the church but most of all on social media and i tell people look. I'm not a jerk for jesus. I know i'm super demonstrative. About what i believe but acceptance and approval or two very different things. I'm called by the gospel to accept you no matter what you choose to do. That doesn't mean you have to approve of your lifestyle. We speak the truth in love but we can't speak love at the expense of truth because if you just speak love and no truth and it's not loving nor is it truthful and so nobody was really saying anything and i saw the nefarious plan. I said look this is going to open pandora's box and we see now that we're fighting what i call the alphabet colt. Lgbtq b. l. Am the whole deal and so we were right. We were right to say that this is going to open pandora's box. It's always been about the kids and it's about the kids now it's about indoctrination of our young people and so that's where we are and now pastors are like oh my goodness we. We don't want to say anything about it because that doesn't make us loving no the gospel proclaims that we have to call seeing what it is.

"pandora" Discussed on The Oklahoma Observercast
"Understand how you could be okay with that. A real infrigement personal liberties But think a mask is Just the most awful thing to happen to your entire life. I mean you know i. I don't go hunting lot But i've been out there before it was cold Had taken from cold so cold. I think it's okay to check myself. I wasn't going to die from the goal. My nose brennan. Little bit But to protect myself others from a deadly virus could in. I think there are a lot of folks who who may be really concerned about the back. Seen right Who just don't know the science behind. Who have real fears And i think that we have to continue to help people feel comfortable with it. That's a whole separate issue but the mask issue is just if you are not coupled back scenes right Where damascus the next best thing. We can do to protect the people around us the fact that it's carved into a political issue. It's it's a public health issues and not a political issue. Shouldn't be a political issue. Some people have allowed to become flippable issue and so now we're making public health decisions based on politics. And and i don't know if there's ever been a time in human history that's worked out well for the people living at that time. So where do you go from here with this. You just you keep beating the drums in hopes that eventually people come you mentioned. There's a special session sometime later. This fall but the legislature is not in session so it's really a difficult proposition to say. Try to get these folks rounded up and back. Oklahoma city to to repeal that i would think at you know the majority. The republican majority governor. All they've all made it clear they you're not gonna they're gonna take bold action to protect oklahoma's and so i i don't think they can can count on that. And while our caucus is small The house democratic caucus the senate democratic caucus the thing that. I think we have to do as i said before. We have to keep telling people the truth on how to protect themselves Most as you can probably find me talking about vaccines You know anytime. I bounce homework and share You know the the efficacy of vaccines and that type of i do advocate brenda by who had a lot of concerns about being vaccinated. I went with him to get back. Stated you know and so the of those are those are small things to do but those are things that we have to do. I i got an email from a a lady. After after a little dust up with the governor and i mean like an all caps email about personal liberties and you know she she in the nicest way possible in all cats saying basically told me to go do do you know what with myself and in i'll take some of those respond back to and i remember i sent her mouth at look. You know we may different a lot of things but my only priority molly agenda right now is to make sure that people get the information save lives. I think that we should hold ourselves accountable to stay government to save people's lives. And so you know. I get you. Email me about a political issue. And i understand the governor in our political figures That wasn't a bunch of political statements. He just holds the power to do something differently. Make different decisions. And.

Are Smart Phone Apps Ripping You Off?
"Both apple and google are being sued all over the place for how they run their stores. The app store the play store and what these two have been doing. Is they use their shared monopoly control over the ecosystem of phones to put up tollgates to rip you off a lot of cases. You're not even aware how much you're being ripped off their when you download an app that comes with this subscription or purchases. It's marked up an additional thirty percent for the toll that they have to pay the app. Developer has to pay to google or apple and this is so different than the era of the pc. The mac book the windows. Computer the chromebook that when you go to a website you use any function on your computer apple and google and the people who manufacturer chromebooks and all that they don't extract a toll and so the cost of anything you pay goes to who built that service now. This is a huge deal with apple self-dealing trying to rip people off on pandora and especially spotify to try to get iphone users to use apple music. It is true self-dealing where apple is able to grab all this money and google just as guilty in this area and microsoft who quietly has become one of the most valuable companies in the world again. I mean nobody really thinks about microsof- but microsoft has come up with a way to get around this on phones. That probably has google and apple. People furious where they've got a platform they've developed. Where on a phone. You'll be able to access things web-based that operate like apps and avoid the rip off thirty percent. Add on that you have to pay right now in the app store or in the play store and so no that with apps you're using that you're paying usually much more than you have to

Ubisoft Reveals Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora With New Trailer at E3
"Avatar is coming out. Its avatar frontiers of pandora. That's going to launch in twenty twenty two the bone to pick with this trailer. Well you know. It's a standard. We're not gonna show you any gameplay. Trailer is the dramatic way that they go ahead and do things on these first. Looks like we saw a battlefield. Twenty forty two last week they show you zero game play but they show you what the game could be like going forward so it. It essentially relives the the original movie. What's that about it. And i know again. I've never been a big fan of avatar. I know it as rob mccallum. Our good friend said it lost its cultural footprint for a while. But you know there's still a fascination in certain parts of the world it has regained the top spot. All-time sniff sniff of interest in game. Sorry but i want to hear your thoughts on avatar frontiers upendra my friend so the trailer makes it look like the game could be really good but there have been avatar video games out before and they've been monumentally awful. So how many times have we seen these three. I don't. I don't take much stock into these cinematic trailers that they show up. That shows zero game plan. I don't take any stock on anymore. The and that's the deceiving part to. Yeah you know that kind of upset me with tiny tina's game two right. They didn't show many gameplay footage of stuff so again battlefield. Twenty forty two. I mean they're gonna show for that this weekend a few days here back. We'll probably cover it here on one of our shows but still it's it's it's i'm not a big fan of i just dive because they really absolutely shove it wowed me ten years ago two thousand or maybe two thousand seventeen thousand eight when they did that stuff out of it. Looks like it could be cool depending on what it is but i just. I don't see anything video game. Wise with the avatar franchise just has not had a history of success or even anything mine minorly resembling success. I don't i don't see this i don't see this being something. That kind of leaves a footprint anywhere.
Comparing April 2020 Headlines About Coronavirus, Potentially Knowing It Was a Lab Leak
"Dr Fauci, is that a White House press conference? He's asked about the lab league theory on April 17th 2020. He cites a paper and says, Ah, I don't really dig this lab Lee theory. There's a paper coming out, he says. I don't really know the authors yet, but this paper is gonna refute this lab leak hypothesis. Well, as I asked before the break. Is this the paper? New England Journal of Medicine, escaping Pandora's box, another novel, Coronavirus. Cause you know what's really odd. The authors of this paper Peter Dash, AC Jeff Taubenberger and David Morin's one of the authors Peter de Shock since Fauci and email the next day after Fauci waves off the lab leak insights this paper and thanks him for doing so. And in the paper. They're pretty clear that quote implicates a bat origin. In other words, pay no attention to the lab leak behind the curtain, you idiots. You swear the story shockingly gets even stranger. So just six days after that press conference, Maybe we look weak. A little less. Maybe I don't want to nail it down to six is the fact that he was 6.27 days. Let's say around a week later after that press conference where Fauci sites, this paper authored by Dash AC and others who, Thanks, Pao chief reciting it. Just six days later. You see this headline The articles actually from May 11th, but quotes What happens. Headline Trump Administration cuts funding for coronavirus researcher jeopardizing possible covid 19 cure. So the media instead of wondering why Donald Trump, who probably got wind that we may have been funding gain of function deadly research at a Chinese bioweapons lab instead of saying, Wow, good job, Donald Trump That sounds like it could really suck for us. Of course. Scott Pelley had CBS 60 Minutes, which pretends to be a news magazine, which is quite hilarious. Of course. Their headline is about Donald Trump cutting funding for this researcher jeopardizing a possible cure, which is ironic because the vaccine happened under the Trump administration, despite the same media, saying the vaccine wouldn't happen. Regardless of your feelings about vaccines, those facts are
Breaking Down the Wuhan Lab Leak Hypothesis, Dr. Fauci and Other Government Officials Involved
"So it appears that there's some kind of and I'll get to this moratorium in a minute. The United States government has a moratorium on funding research that would make viruses more powerful. Gee, I wonder why we put a moratorium on that. Because we could create a whole bunch of really deadly viruses, and that would really suck. Sounds like the government finally did something right when they weren't doing something wrong. Hey, we shouldn't do research like that. But it appears a sub agency of the NIH led by Dr Anthony Fauci. May have approved this grant that went to this eco health alliance that eventually made its way to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where it's believed. Now, this virus may have leaked from Mm. Oh, it gets better. Here's the third part of this daily caller piece again. They're talking about this Christopher Park, who was the State Department person who apparently did not want to open the Pandora's box looking into this stuff, according to this Vanity Fair report. He says Park was not the only government official to oppose pursuing the lab leak hypothesis, however. The Nano another until Vanity Fair that an intelligence analyst struggled to find a report written by officials working at the Department of Energy Lab that Anna must be a whistleblower. The Nano told the island he viewed the report is being intentionally buried within the classified collection system. Department of Energy officials then attempted to block State Department officials for meeting with the report's authors did Nano alleged okay? So just clearing that up a bit. We have funding paid to echo Health alliance through FAO cheese group there. Making its way around the moratorium against this kind of funding that makes its way to a Chinese lab. We think this virus may have leaked from, and apparently there's a report on it that the government's burying in its own classified system who's burying it? What are they covering up

What Does Authenticity Even Mean? With Journalist Pandora Sykes
"I was so interested to read your take on authencity. Can you tell us a little bit. More about panera. So i subscribe to the idea that where not just oneself that we're compilation of selves. And so those kind of selves. The self that you present depends on who you're with say your family will see oneself. Your love will see another self people you work with another one. The barista coffee shop for the guy at sainsbury's is going to see a different one and so on and so forth. The thing that i think is kind of fascinating about our obsession with authenticity. Because as you say it's a buzzword now and i also agree don't bring your whole self to work. You need to have some stuff. That's not at work. That's just your own but the problem with the obsession with with anticipate is the because so much of our life is now distilled into online technically in the last year. The internet does not allow and social media. Profiles does not allow for this compilation of selves. You sort of have to pick one so that it makes sense. And i think that's why people got themselves really tangled in not because when that's your primary way to relate to the world as it has been in the last year it can make you feel like you're being inconsistent other people. I don't know if you've noticed this all nodes people saying well. That's really unlike her or she posted this. I didn't really think she stood for ordinary. She was into that. And it depends what medium. You're using but i think what's happened is on twitter. You see something that the writer james mumford called package deal ethics this idea that you subscribe to a set of beliefs. If you believe one thing he believed to another you believe in another thing which i think is really dangerous. You know this idea that everyone on the left believes this ever on them. Right believes this because then that just how on earth do you meet in the middle of just kind of tick tick tick to all the same things and then on instagram. I think what it means is. There's just so much judgment around washy dressing. I thought she liked dressing modestly. Like what washy doing. not now. That's not her. Because i was talking about before down and i'm like well she's going through as i find that really weird and found it the way. It was equated to feminism. But i guess i've ever think everything is about feminism. Just because things about
Competing with 'BIG' Podcasting in 2021 with Stargate "SP" Pioneer
"So we've been falling podcasts in history for hobbyist since two thousand fifteen are very episode episode two we inserted the segment. And i don't think we've had more than three episodes sense twenty fifteen without the download. So we've been talking about the industry for over five years the thing with the industry today versus where it was in two thousand fifteen is. There's a lot more money into it. And why is there more money. It's because podcasting is now mainstream with it. I'd casting as mainstream. Everybody knows what podcast is. Everybody can get podcasts on their smartphone. Everybody knows how to download the podcast award. They can find out really quickly or they probably listen to a podcast and didn't even know it so it is infinitely easier to consume podcasts into except podcasts than it ever was before you don't have to go to your computer download an episode. Put it on an ipod. Take your ipod into your car with some sort of connection kit and listen to it on the car. Listen to the headphones now. You have bluetooth headphones with your smartphone with active noise cancellation that just fit in your ear without any cords. I mean it's so easy compared to what it used to be.
