It is about the Hunter Biden laptop and the unfortunate disclosures that we find out from mister young mister Biden himself. You know what I like? And again, welcome back. I love the fact that you've got John James of dynasty playing Joe Biden. I like to call him uncle Joe. Some people call him President Biden. But because when I looked at John James, I looked him up recently because he's an older gentleman, of course, he's the right age, but he actually does look a little like Joe Biden. Yeah. And where do you see what we did with him with makeup and the wonderful Serbian makeup artists? I mean, he grew into the role. It was amazing. He just became Joe Biden over the course of making the movie. Even to the extent of walking into a glass door on his way into a restaurant on the weekend when we were making a movie. He said it was his greatest piece of mathematics ever. Yeah, he walked into a glass door and spent Saturday evening in the Serbian ER room. Not a great place to be actually any E or R on a Saturday night anywhere in the world is not a good place to be Serbia. It's got its own challenges. So you just need a few stitches, but that he was taking the Joe Biden the stumbling bumbling Joe Biden rule so seriously walking through a glass door. So that was not part of the movie.

He said I quote, the combination of private enterprise and government, working together has been really successful. He went on to say all the way through the supply chain. There's a lot of innovation. Because of the actions we've taken, things have begun to change. And to quote, in the past three weeks, the number of containers sitting on docks blocking that movement.

Energy Secretary Doesn't Know How Much Energy Americans Need

"Biden authorized the President Biden authorized the use of the strategic oil reserve yesterday to combat U.S. gasoline prices. It's a fade. It's a fake. Three 50 million barrels of oil sounds like a lot. The strategic oil reserve is for dire national security emergencies. Donald Trump filled it up to the brim, and President Biden had taken up 50 million barrels to make a gesture. It may have a little tiny impact on three days of gas. Three days of gas prices. That's what it is. No other nations are Tapping into their oil reserves and a collective effort to bring it down, not going to work. The kind of amount of oil we consume in the world is one of those pieces of data that nobody really knows. It's so astonishing, high. Except maybe the secretary of the energy, right? The energy will know. How much oil we can. Let's go to her number two energy secretary Jennifer grant on The White House press yesterday. How much oil do we consume? Do you know how many barrels of oil does the U.S. consume per day? I don't have that number in front of me. Some suggest it's about 18 million, which would suggest your releasing less than three days worth of supply from the petroleum reserve. Why is that enough? It isn't enough. Not knowing, by the way, not knowing how many barrels of oil, the United States consumes every day. Why in the world would we believe the secretary grant on those? And if Rick Perry had done that, remember Rick couldn't remember the three agencies when he himself was on painkillers. She'd be if it had been him. He'd be roasted with the turkeys by

Can Biden Bounce Back From Falling Pole Numbers?

"David, the poll numbers for President Biden are awful and getting worse. I mean, genuinely, through the floor, bad making Trump look strong by comparison. To what, what is the most significant aspect of that? There's an argument on Twitter this morning. It's a scamper from Afghanistan, others say inflation's others say all of the above, let's say at you. Well, I'd say that it's all of the above, but I'd say it in this manner. I think what Afghanistan did and what the president has not recovered since Afghanistan is it punctured this image of him as a competent steady leader, right? And that is one of the reasons why Americans elected him. One of the worst things you can do is a candidate or as an incumbent is fail on the issue that voters shows you for. So you can make all kinds of mistakes. And voters may not like it, but the one mistake you can't make politically is, but this is the whole reason why I elected you. And that's why Afghanistan mattered so much to Biden's image. And I think we can now say that in the hindsight of a couple of months since it happened. I think the issue with inflation is that the president has been doing a number of things that many democratic voters like and that look, it's possible just like with ObamaCare ten years from now 15 years from now, voters are going to really like some of the stuff that he's been doing, particularly in the larger social spending bill that has yet to clear the Senate or finally cleared the house. But right now, voters are most concerned about inflation and things related to inflation as it affects their view of the economy and their view of their own personal economy at home. And when you're doing a bunch of things that voters may like if you ask them about it, but they don't think you're doing enough for the number one and number two problem, let's say that are impacting them right now, they are going to be very unhappy. And all these other things you're telling them about is not going to get the job done. In other words, you can't tell them. Look, I know inflation's high. But if you get free preschool or taxpayer funded paid leave, that's going to make your milk cost less and they're going to that's not going to kind of need that thing, but I don't see how that's going to make my milk and bread cost less. So those that's where Biden is tripped up.

The Most Insane Leftist Responses to the Rittenhouse Verdict

"Excuse me, the daily wire. Collected, they listed. We're going to post this, Mike online dot com. The most insane leftist responses. To the rittenhouse verdict. President Biden, while the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge the jury has spoken. What do you mean you're angry and concert? What are you angry about? What you wanted this kid's head on a platter? Is that what it is? Self defense isn't supposed to be self defense? How about Gavin newsham? This nutcase, governor, America today, he said, you can break the law, carry around weapons built for a military. Shoot and kill people and get away with it. That's the message. We've just sent to armed vigilantes across the nation. You see, newsham, these kooks never condemn the rioters or the looters. No, no, no, no. The guy that had a gun in defect was trying to protect a business and was defending himself. He's the bad guy. Not the pedophile trying to kill him. No, no. He's the good guy. How about governor J B pritzker, of Illinois? This classic. He heard about Newsom evidently instead hold my beer. Pritzker said, carrying a loaded gun into a community 20 miles from your home and shooting unarmed citizens is fundamentally wrong. How about the congressional black caucus? Here was their statement. It is unconscionable our justice system would allow an armed vigilante who traveled to Kenosha Wisconsin and killed Joseph rosenbaum Anthony huber and the wounded gauge grows gross Croix to go free. Colin Kaepernick. He said, well, but I can do you better. We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist. NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, ha, let the boy be black, he said, and it would have been life. Hell he would have had his life taken before this BS trial. Sad. House judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler. These are not insignificant people. This is a very prominent Democrat. He said, quote, this heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by the Department of Justice.

"Lot of the american citizens they may let let go through the green holders they may let gut through but afghan allies people who helped the us government. Those many of those people are already being killed and thousands of them know that that's their fate. Since we close that door for good long list of republican politicians calling for the president to be impeached or resigned. Nikki haley nikki. Haley really put the she really put the problem. Where where it is. She said should biden step down or be removed for his handling of afghanistan. Yes but that would leave us with kamala harris which would be ten times words. God help us. That's from nikki. Haley interesting senator. Josh holly out of missouri said to say that. Today's of american lives in kabul is sickening does not begin to do justice to what has happened is enraging and joe biden is responsible. It's now clear. Beyond all doubt that he has neither the capacity or the will to lead. He must resign. We have a list of another dozen or so elected officials and some that are running for congress. Some of them calling for Use of the twenty fifth amendment to remove the president from office. That's not gonna happen you have to. Have you have to have the vice president. Start that the cabinet has to agree and who knows they may all go along with it but i. I don't see that happening and again is nikki. Haley said so then you have president harris. Maybe it's time for house speaker. Nancy pelosi step aside as well. No kid has when the whole couple bombings thing was happening know she was doing. She was celebrating women's equality day in san francisco. Making zero mentions of the bombing. Well that's the thing you know. I read this at first. I thought well you know somebody she she. She was talking about women's equality. She was at an event in san francisco but she didn't know there was going to be an attack in kabul. And then i thought well somebody and you know that some member her staff pre tweeted scheduled a tweet about the event in san francisco and women's equality and stuff. No that's not what happened. Nancy pelosi made a speech that was televised and never even mentioned what happened in afghanistan. That's ridiculous until later. The statement later issued a statement again. She's not talking too late. And it was just one of those blah blah blah. You know boilerplate statement saying that. The house of representatives strongly condemned the heinous terrorist attack and mourns the loss of every innocent life taken. Thank you very much madam speaker..

"People died as a result in at least a dozen others were injured and this is a little bit of signs of things to come at least you got. Some good news is that the taliban can't get into the central bank that's got billions of dollars in it that this this more honestly raised more of a red flag to me than it did. Make me feel better. Because i hadn't even thought about this. No don't you think that You know a militant organization taking over a country would just be able to walk into the bank and say the hand over the cash. Turn it all over here. Well made that not possible. Seven seven billion dollars in assets of the nine billion in the central bank. Seven billion of that is in the. Us federal reserve yesterday blocked it and another one point. Three billion held in other international accounts of taliban is getting chump change. Yeah that that doesn't change the fact that they still got all the weapons and you know bombers and planes and all that. They've still got plenty even if they can get all nine all right. Let's change the subject. Let's look at the booster shots. Situation was told yesterday that people are going to be able to get booster shots Beginning september eight months after you had your last one. And here's president biden again because this seems to be a lot more important to him than anything else going on administration of planning for this possibility in this scenario for months we purchased enough vaccine and vaccine supplies. So that when you're eight month mark comes up you'll be ready to get your vaccination free at booster shot free. We have it available. We'll make you safer and for law. I guess maybe it was an unfair shot of meat to say he cares about this more than anything else that's going on. I mean he's able to do more than one thing at a time but still it does seem like That's this is the this is the note he wants to stay on. He doesn't wanna talk about afghanistan or what's going on here order chair. Well he did the interview with. Abc can fell flat on his face in it. But the thing here this booster program no problem with it by the way the science proves that the vaccine wears off after eight months then by god. Let's get the boosters out there however here's where it gets weird is that if you got the johnson and johnson vaccine. This doesn't apply to you. Because johnson and johnson hasn't gotten back to the white house.

"Depart. And i don't want to give anything away about where your sister is. Our were she might be. But i am wondering just what her fears are if she goes into the street right now. What could happen. I mean what are the possibilities. The main fear is that if they take away that's the worst scenario with think about it every day. The parliament have already started house to house searches in some neighborhoods registering names and looking for people and their target list. She was not able to sleep an i of her william asleep. She sent me a video of our neighbors that was taken from the window. That taliban knocked on the door and hit him with the gum which the taliban is going door to door in beating certain people like selectively. I be doing. No they are not. Nolan is raising their voice. My friend just two days ago called me and say they took our neighbors and fired on him and he is dead but his family is keeping silence. They are not ready to talk. They don't want to because they're afraid if tomlin come and kill the only other members what goes through your mind when you hear this rebranding of the taliban when they say we've changed from twenty years ago women will have a different set of rights more expansive rights than the last time we were in power. We see it every day right now on cobbled streets. In provinces they didn't allow goes to go to university. They allow goes to go to their worker. Like like one of my friends was working for national. Tv was prohibited to enter the office and told her. Go back to your home. You're not allowed to come back to this office anymore. Redo need every female presenter year. Were you mean you mean. This is not years ago. You mean this has happened recently. Yeah just just yesterday. Under the previous taliban rule women in many cases were not allowed to go to school. They had to have their full body covered and they needed guardians to accompany them in the streets. Change day they are raiding houses. They shot people. They beast them but they are very very seriously practicing to behave. People with courtesy. Who are just has seen by. Can i ask you personally than when you talk to your sister. Like what goes through your mind then when you hear her describe hoping she can get out. It's feels bad. The my sister who struggled alerts for a better life who believes in modern values who fought for values and so many things in that society and not just my sister. I just talked with my friend. Maybe certain article and she was so strong but she was crying. I cannot tolerate house anymore. It's the day that i'm stuck here. Loyd i was a free bird Around in kabul guaranteeing all their rights within the limits of time. It's really hard to see. Goes the you generation. Who built this perfect life for them. But they're not gonna be able to live like a normal life anymore. But i should ask you. President biden said yesterday to us that he didn't think it was possible for the us to leave without chaos ensuing was the phrase. He used that it was basically impossible to to not have seems like this. What's your response to that just impossible. It's impossible. I think everything is possible. Actually i think it was even late to withdraw to leave afghanistan. It was really longtime but it was not the right time or it was not the right way. It was not fair. I read at the international community gives him so many opportunities and merits and at the end they allowed them to even use their military over an insert.

Listen and join the all new hunt. Wherever you get your podcasts. So you heard president biden say hey we knew it was going to be like this and we are trying to help vulnerable people get out. But here's what that actually looks tonight. The pandemonium outside kabul airport is thousands of desperate. Afghans climbed to leave a foreign correspondent ian panel. You heard him here yesterday. We'll after our interview. He went to the airport. And what you got understand is there are two sections to this airport in kabul. There's the american controlled part where military is and the taliban controlled part. The us says hey if you have papers and you show up. Of course we're going to help you out but to show up to the american side you've gotta get through this. Their response on the ground is ripple it's it's Offensive that threatening that firing automatic weapons over the heads of the crowd repeatedly huge crowds and gangs of taliban fighters trying to push them back. Ian actually got permission from taliban commanders to film the scene permission. Maybe okay but it was also chaotic. Let's get back to the ins. Pre-approved teen didn't feel safe let alone the average afghan or can tell you as season journalist. It was really scary down there and we were able to jump in vehicles and get out of that that the afghans is truly terrifying. So what is the reality of the situation for those people who were scared of the taliban from afar and are now terrified up close will our next guest was actually in kabul when this story was not yet a done deal. She escaped right before. The taliban took the city some of her family members though have not nasreen. Nevada joins us. Now nasreen thanks for being with us. When did you arrive in the us.

It just a good chance that they booked on Thirteen so i was out in safe But my family are left behind helicopters and black smoke visible american diplomats including the ambassador evacuated to the airport. I didn't want to leave my family in such bad situation in kabul and i was telling them to. Could you tell at the time that that kabul was you know that the taliban were encircling kabul in these major cities yes is see last week to two weeks ago three weeks ago. I was so concerned. The us embassy edging americans to leave the country immediately. The taliban capturing the first provincial capital on friday now on the cusp of seizing two more insurgents closing border crossings. None of them wanted to lift their homeland but recent days they were so worried and they started to find a way to at least get visa for a my sister. But it doesn't happen.

"It's thursday august nineteenth and it always had to be this way for did it. We start here in an exclusive interview. President biden defiantly defended his choices on afghanistan. The idea that somehow there is a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing. I don't know how that happens with desperation gripping the streets and pandemonium on the runway and you don't think this could have been handled better in any way no mistakes george. Stephanopoulos walks us through his one on one conversation and she made out of kabul for sister. Dinner not change. They are rating houses. They shot full. They beat them go inside. The conversations between family members as the taliban begins knocking on doors from abc news. This is a special edition of start. Here i'm brad. Mielke united states has one commander in chief at a time but when it comes to afghanistan the last several american presidents republicans democrats have made remarkably similar decisions taliban regime. It's coming to an end since initial invasion when things get bad you send in more troops. It has been a tough month in afghanistan. But it's also been tough month for the taliban. I make this decision. Because i am convinced that our security is at stake in afghanistan and pakistan. When things seemed calmer you start to draw them down. We have agreed that this is the year we will conclude our combat mission in afghanistan. But then things get fat again right so for nineteen years. No commander in chief has simply vacated afghanistan. America will work with the afghan government as long as we see determination and progress however our commitment is not unlimited until now many who argue that we should stay stay in afghanistan because withdrawal when damage america's credibility and we can america's influence in the world. I believe the exact opposite is true. Any images that accompany this withdrawal are just as bad if not worse than what those other commanders in chief might have imagined strongholds falling within hours. Afghan leaders accused of corruption. Saying yeah yeah. Alabama city is yours. I can go to cafes. I can go to restaurants. I can go shopping. Grew staying home wary of being seen. What some guy deems immodest dress and perhaps the most gut wrenching images so far people holding onto an american plane for dear life as our personnel fled the country without them. There's one commander in chief at a time so yesterday. Abc's own george. Stephanopoulos became the first journalist to sit down with president at the white house. Since biden made the final call in kabul descended into chaos and minutes after that interview. George got into a car and gave us a call. There is george how are you. I'm doing all right. How are you. I'm rushing a union station. let's not this out l. Let's do this. So i mean you spoke to president biden the white house clearly. He's sticking with his decision. Here right how did he characterize his decision making process to you. Know second guessing at all. He took on those who said that the intelligence showed that we'd have this kind of rapid collapse of the afghan military and government back in july. You said a taliban takeover with highly unlikely was the intelligence wrong or did you downplay it. I think there was no consensus. You go back and look at the intelligence reports. They said that like more likely to be sometime by the end of the year. He said no one told what happens quickly. The idea that the taliban would take over was premised on the notion that the somehow the three hundred thousand troops we trained and equipped was going to collapse. We're going to give up. I don't think anybody anticipated time. They'll take by version to keep a small force there. He suggested that he was being told. It would take several thousand more troops for von period of time and a lot of lives if we were to say. He's not second guessing his decision. I don't think this could have been handled. This actually could have been handled better in any way. No mistakes no. I don't think it could have been handled in a way that they're going to go back in hindsight and look but the idea that somehow there's a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing. I don't know how that happens. I don't know how that happened so for you. That was always priced into the decision. Yes and so he saying there was intelligence but was this a failure then to listen to the intelligence or he's just saying we always knew this would happen. I i asked him. Was it a failure of intelligence planning execution or judgment. He conceded nothing. he says. This is basically always going to happen when we withdrew when you had the government of afghanistan the leader that government getting a plane and taking off going another country when you saw the significant collapse of the of the afghan troops. We had trained to three hundred thousand of them just leaving their equipment and taking off that was you know this is what happened as simply what happened he. Where does this go here. Things get worse if people start being slaughtered if women are being arrested or beaten for going to school like is the plan. That's going to be like. Hey the taliban they were in the country now. The president is sticking by that august thirty first deadline with one big exception. He saying that troops will stay if we stop to get americans out and if we stopped to get a little more on our afghan allies interpreters translators. People helped us through the war effort commitment holes to get everyone out that in fact we can get out and everyone should come out and that's the objective. That's what we're doing now. That's the path. And i think we'll get so american should understand the troops might have to be there beyond august thirty. First know america's and understand that we're going to try to get it done before august but if we don't the troops don't will determine if the time who's left and and if you're american forces if there's american citizens left we're gonna stay little get them all out s for you know. The taliban taking over the president said it's a matter of priorities. It's matter par hard-boiled nash. Security calculation so there are a lot of countries where women are are subjugated where women are discriminated against women face violence and lack of rights. He said well we don't. We can't send our military in a to solve those problems in every country in the world to such high stakes for all these decisions here and the pictures are almost universally alarming to americans right. But i do think that it's tricky for americans to figure out you know who's responsible for these images right. Is it president biden because of the way he just did this withdrawal. This president trump actually kind of orchestrated negotiated withdrawal. Talking about george w bush forever. I mean how does biden see this as his mission or z. Cleaning up after others. He's been pretty consistent over the last fifteen years. He wanted so that. I think that's one of the reasons. He's not conflicted right now or not communicating any sense of being conflicted about this decision. But we've all seen the pictures we've seen those hundreds of people packed into a c. Seventeen we've seen afghans falaise four days ago five days ago. What did you think when you first saw those pictures. I thought was weird. We have to gain control this. We have to move this more quickly. We have to move in a way in which we can take control that airport and we did. He did suggest that had president trump made the agreement with the taliban might have had a slightly different time. Why but no second guessing at all on the big decision the strategic decision to withdraw from afghanistan. Last question political one i. I don't know if it's too soon to go to politics. But what does this do for. The image of the joe biden white house and the democratic party going forward with. That's going to be a big question. I don't think. I don't think we know yet. I was talking to some white house officials today. Suggest they do you think he could take a bit of it there on the other hand i think the president is firmly believes that the american public pretty firmly agrees with him on the big picture. The twenty years in.

"Together in coming up with what the executive articles a coordinated response. I think in many respects. This council is designed to encourage conversations across agencies that will enable them collectively to achieve more than they do individual effort. That's healthy but second to provide in mechanism for keeping score on how the government is doing in this government. A wide approach. A crucial question is going to stick. Will this become a vibrant element of making over time. I the simple fact that these are federal agencies does not mean it as one big happy family. Never underestimate the forces of parochialism and narrow institutional prerogative in defeating broader ambitions. President biden is not the first president to exhort agencies to work more collectively and collaboratively on these kinds of projects. So will the white house throw themselves into making this work overtime. Will they dedicate the effort to it day in and day out will. Individual agencies dedicate themselves to this process at simply pointing out that the by administration has taken a while to get going. The facts at jonathan canter has just now been nominated and probably will not take office until i'm guessing. September means that eight precious months have gone by and one thing that you notice. When you're the head of the agency is how fast the time goes by. And the clock ticks. Quickly to the end of president biden's first-term. Maybe a second term. We can't predict that with with with with great accuracy But it is going to be the sustained effort over time that makes it work in the attention to implementation that makes this effective in a census is a nice start but in another sense nothing has happened yet. None of the concrete steps to put all of this implies have come to pass and that will be a question. Not of the physics of what competition policy should be but are skillet engineering and making things work in time. In general we tend to ignore the the the engineering of policy making the physics fascinates us academics. Write about the physics solid time. The question of how you actually do it and put it in. Place is much harder task and to quit again ernest. May and richard neustadt. They point out that the main problems with her form or in the zone. What they call feasability and the feasibility. They're talking about is the commitment and dedication of effort to make it work overtime so this has potential but many reforms in the history of our country had potential. Success depends on whether you're in for the long run whether you're willing to learn what worked well in the past because you'll need all the help you can get in studying earlier. Examples to make that work while in the future and it will not be kanter and con. It will be kanter successor con successor. You'll be a host of other policymakers will determine whether this works overtime. So if you're not in it for the long run this doesn't succeed in the way.

"I'm gonna try to answer the instructors questions so the one i'd rather answer but i'm going to quarrel with the instructor in one way. That is When i was young person getting into this field there were two voices that sketched out. A view of competition law that said focused on consumers. I almost single-mindedly one was robert bork. But the other was a guy named philip and my guess is in the in the in the current generation. I i doubt that most people could pick hillary two out of a lineup. I suspect they couldn't do it Bork and bork and arita gave somewhat different answers to the question of why the consumer focused bork argued in a way that historians find completely unsupportable. The congress in ninety nineteen fourteen meant for the consumer interest to be at the forefront of competition law enforcement a rita had different argument arita sad the egalitarian vision. The congress had and the courts have spoken about. It cannot be effectively administered in practice That is if you seek to achieve the wider collection of aims and for example. Tell judges individual judges your aim ultimately as to protect democracy and prevent levels of concentration that undermine democracy. How do i do that in practice. What kind of merger should be allowed or disallowed. Don't all additions to concentration. Pose an incrementally greater threat. And rita's view was that program is not administrable and rita argued. It's faintly unconstitutional to tell individual judges that that's your job to sort all of that out So i think the i think the core objection of what i would call the harbored an chicago perspectives. From the period of time i bring in harvard. Because if bork alone had been the only voice it wouldn't have worked. You needed a more centrist perspective to bring people in the middle middle left a little bit middle right to join the party They did join. I think their core objection. Is that if you bring in the broader array of objectives protecting worker interests protecting local community interests protecting small business individual entrepreneurs and ultimately protect democracy itself. How do i about doing that. So they said let other policies take care of this wider array of interest. Your job in antitrust is to focus on the consumer interest. I think that would be their main. Their main objection. You know how do i. What do i feel about this. I i think a proper definition of the consumer interest embodies a wider range of values. That is our consumers interested as workers and getting good wages. Of course they are. Are they interested in preventing excessive concentration that undermines innovation. Yes they are So i think. I think the notion that that the policy the last forty years or so focuses only on price effects is is is an unfortunate distortion. It's done more the nat I would say the heart issue to address for the broader galateri addition. And i think this remains a challenge is how do you implement the broader vision in practice and i think our lena con for jonathan canter in writing merger guidelines and rewriting guidelines about. How the ftc exercises authority. That's a discussion. I'm gonna look for most carefully is how do you. How do you do it in an individual merger. How do you draw the lines. How'd you reconcile competing interests including the point that in many respects i'm not sure consumers always liked competition competition is scary and you can have completely benign forces of innovation that just blow away existing industries and competition can be scary consumers light competition when it provides them something better in the shop when they buy. They're not so sure in their capacities workers or as inhabitants of local communities. Sow there are ambiguities. Here that are hard to sort out. But i think that's a big challenge and i suspect that the ftc india joergen gonna spend a lot of time reformulating how they expect to do that in individual cases. Thank you so much for that and for helping us understand the difference between chicago and harvard schools and for inspiring me and we the people listeners to learn more will. It's time for closing arguments in this extremely rich and eliminating discussion and bury the first one is to you some up. Please for our avid we. The people listeners. Why president biden's executive order on competition is transformative important in your view and what you hope and expect it to achieve an thank you jeff for hosting this conversation. It's it's it's really important and it's to take unravel what has been taking place because it and it really is revolutionary And i guess the key thing here is just to understand. I that we in the united states Are in crisis you know we. We have the greatest concentration of power That we have seen in the hands of private actors. Perhaps in our history you know. We've we grew up learning about the power of standard oil the power of the railroads or the power of carnegie steel. You know maybe more. Recent times the power of ibm or at&t and it's like google facebook and amazon and a couple of others perhaps in the power that they have is far beyond any of those previous giants possessed. And even what's even more scary is the fact that google facebook amazon control the communications. They you know they they stand they. They occupy the space in between the the author in the reporter and the the reader the voter you know and on the other the other side of the the platform and they manipulate how people share information with each other. They manipulate how people share news with each other. They manipulate how people speak with each other. So the crisis that we face today Both just concentrated wealth concentrated control and a constant concentration of of power over our communications is unprecedented and the threat is to our democracy in a way that we have not faced. So that's number one number two you know is the executive order demonstrates and other actions that the biden administration have taken such as such as appointing li conto head the ftc and You know downing kanter to run the antitrust division within the justice department demonstrate that they understand this threat this this multiplicity of threats this wide array of threats to our democracy and to our economic and political wellbeing so and they are striking at the root of the concentration of power that we have seen over the last forty years. You know so so. that's you know. Yeah so we should every day all of us focus on the threat and we should every day do what we can to work with this administration. Which really understands the threat and has demonstrated intends to break this power and reestablish a new democracy here in america in some ways a third american democracy that we should work with this administration to help them make this happen because lena con as much power. She has his chair of the ftc. Johnny kanter's much power as he has the president. By as much as he has sitting in the oval office. They cannot do it alone. They need our support every day and in some ways what the executive order has done is. It's an invitation for all of us to participate in this rebuilding of american democracy for the digital twenty-first-century. Thank you so much for that Build the last word is to you in this wonderful conversation Please share with the people listeners. Your view about the potential significance of president biden's executive order and what its practical effects. Maybe you choose the word potential significance wisely. I think jeff's and i will focus on what i think is essential to having the potential become a reality. And what is the boehner ability policymaking in so many instances in that is the question of implementation. There's some fascinating things in the executive order that the designed to encourage the accomplishment of the ambition set out in the order. One is the creation of a white house competition council. The white house competition council is designed to join up a whole variety of public institutions at the federal level..

"Five of the ftc acted enables it debris a bit unfair methods of competition to prescribe behavior not captured by the sherman actor. Clayton neck the other principal. Federal antitrust statutes so. The ftc has more flexible tools. It has the capacity to try cases through its own administrative process and ultimately right repair reflect the wisdom of the college of commissioners so it has tools. Ajay does not have that. Collaborative joint venture vision has been realized on a small number of occasions in. Us history maybe most important in the thirties forties early fifties where the ftc did formative economic studies that fed directly into the development of important doj cases indeed in his testimony before the temporary national economic commission in nineteen forty two. This is a blue ribbon commission established requests of franklin. Roosevelt thurman arnold. Who's the head of the antitrust. Division tells congress. One of things. I want you to do is give the ftc more money so they can do more studies and more work to support us in the work we do. And to bring cases that we're not able to bring because that will make the us system effective as a whole. The executive order has that vision of creating a more effective collaboration between the two agencies which would make the two of them much better as partners in developing policy to recognize complementary skills in practice that vision because of institutional parochialism has been exceedingly difficult to achieve over time. Lena khan and jonathan kennard know each other. They respect each other's accomplishments. You could imagine them looking. At the executive order in saying acting alone in isolation we cannot realize his vision. In fact we're going to have to work together on rewriting merger guidelines for example one of the aims of the executive order. The only way we can come close to achieving the larger ambitions of this executive order is to achieve genuine collaboration and worry less about who gets credit for success. Because if this works they'll be glory enough to go around for all of us and that's what we should be trying to do. Thank you so much for that berry. You are an antitrust. Visionary whose whose vision has inspired that of lena. Konin jonathan canter. You wrote a piece for the washington monthly that the biden administration noted in which you they got a bold vision of brandeis ian antitrust which called for transformational change on areas ranging from falling real wages to climate to the collapse of entrepreneurship and community to failing rural economies international trade to arts and literature new ended by talking about disinformation and censorship. And you said that president biden could use non-discrimination rules to force school and facebook to abandon the business models that reward them for spreading information divide and radicalized voters and he can use anti-monopoly laws to stop these corporations from diverting into their own vaults the advertising dollars that for the past two hundred fifty years help to support trustworthy. Local journalism What a as of visionary what would you call on lena. Konin jonathan canter to do and if they're successful what when it comes to the platforms against specifically would you hope that they would achieve at the end of their terms. I think Lena con- you know and jonathan canter. you know what what what we'd like to see. Actually there's someone asks me this Actually in the white house the other and is like what. What would you like to see. I'd like to see like you know that we actually are not talking about jeff bezos. Every day it's just like it's like we end up in a situation in which these people are not important. They're they're corporations or neutralized interface and in our lives and just sort of a you know Inner mind all the time you know. it's like we. We need to get back. You know to a world in which you know. we're in control and we think about ourselves and our communities and So you know. There's a variety of ways to get there. it's not my job to actually figure out their strategy for them. You know i mean one thing. I will add and this is actually one of the things that i put into that that note that that article which i know the white house did read is trade trade policy. This is You know so. I think there's you know if i were to send a memory now it would actually be to Ustr it'd be catherine tie It would be to The white house itself to you know in terms of thinking about the way that we can use competition policy to restructure the international system in ways that would make us more safe in ways that allow us to cooperate with our fellow democracies and dealing with google facebook amazon kaz. This'll be a lot easier. If we actually have a pretty close coordination with the europeans and south africa and and and australia Certainly a closer cooperation than we have had in recent years But also sort of dealing with supply chain risk which is another part of the problem that we are dealing with in this country right now which is just that we've seen so much concentration of capacity of vital goods and in places like china and in ways that sort of Threaten our national security so these same principles of of competition can be applied to the i we can use these these principles to actually establish to shape our thinking and our understanding of what to do internationally in a way that it will allow us to rebuild a liberal international system. You know kind of like this spectacularly successful liberal international system that we i built at the end of the second world war britain woods and really that was just one of the great success in human history until it was undone in the mid nineties. By by bill clinton you know that's what the wto system which was the extension of the monopolization vision Into the world arena. So you know so. That's actually if i was gonna write a single memo who would actually be to the white house and so. Ustr to us. You know really sort of start to use this same tools. The same vision these same principles to rethink how we think about our international industrial system and how we interact with other nations and how we build a world community. Thank you so much for that bill. We the people is a weekly show of constitutional debate and i want listeners. To hear the case against berries neo brandeis ian vision Can you tell us what chicago school antitrust thinkers would say to division that berry has sketched out the biden. Some of which the by demonstration's embraced. What would what would this chicago. School's emphasis on consumer welfare rather than democracy and liberty.

"Save americans money on their internet bills by banning accessible early termination fees. Other things make it easier for people to get refunds from airlines and the comparison shop. There a few more items which i'll stop reading are these In fact all Goals that the executive order will achieve and what legal instruments by which it will achieve them and might be blocked by the courts. Congress or other bodies. I would say could achieve possible. A number of the items included on the list are feasible but notice how long the list is This is what. I find daunting and looking at it. This is where. I come back to the thought that implementation become so important There are a number of steps that can be taken to do all of these things and a number of the steps safran example invalidating non-competition covenants in employment agreements. I could have a powerful effect and increasing worker mobility and perhaps increasing the ability of individual workers to achieve higher wages. So a number of the steps are possible. They could be done My only admonition is a to carry them out to bring these two fish line will require a lot of effort and when you note as very sad. The the amalgam of policy instructions or recommendations well into the seventies A difficult issue. That you face if you say. The head of the federal trade commission The the very capable remarkable new head of the federal trade commission is to thank Which of these do i do. I what am i top five. If you try to do everything in the order at once you probably won't be very successful I think when you look at management challenges in a variety of settings nothing is more important than determining what your handful most important priorities are but for your own people and for the outside world so a difficult challenge. This posed by the ambitious list of possibilities here is to focus on what you can do. Well how many you can do it. One time and proceed on that basis given the capability that you have because as your question suggests jeff's a an important consideration is that in many areas implementation of some of these policies will ultimately weight work their way through judicial process that can be described in many respects as economic intervention skepticism doubts. Not neil listen but doubts i so a key question that you face. In seeking to implement some policy commands recommendations is how do you armor them to withstand scrutiny. That they will face as they go through the courts. And that's a that's a. that's formidable. Challenge it's not impossible. But i guess what i'd say is is if you tried if all of these agencies tried to do everything that was being asked at them of them at once. I'm not sure that it would work. I'm not sure they have the capacity to do it. If you see this as more long-term process where we're gonna get to all of this. We will work in good faith. Notice that the order says you will issue reports on some of these items within a set period of time. I think that. I think that you have a program that is feasible. It's its implementation. The question is mixing effectively. The required elements of am bishen that is to achieve the aims with realism. About how to carry them out and how to do them and part of the realism is recognizing that the gauntlet of the federal judiciary will be will be a demanding. One not impossible but demanding. Thanks for that berry. Can you identify the parts of the executive order that are most vulnerable to being questioned by the courts to what bill called economic implementation skepticism by Judges and help our listeners. Understand how this will work itself up to the courts. Some will be implemented by the federal trade commission. Whose new head is. Lena con others by the justice department through antitrust suits. Who's new head. Has jonathan canter so give us some specific examples of policies that will be implemented by doj and the federal trade commission. And which ones do you think are vulnerable in the court. I mean it's a it's a great question and it's you know we don't know actually this is sort of. What would bill What what they're doing right now and this is going to be true. Both in in. I mean you know john. Mcandrew was just named. He's lord knows when he's actually going to actually be able to take office. It could be months before you know he actually gets to sit down and so in terms of when this starts we don't know You know the ftc could be hobbled actually pretty soon you know. One of the commissioners Row heat chopra has been named to head the cfpb. Bb and a different agency a consumer financial protection agency and So if he moves over there then suddenly they'll find themselves to two so So we don't know actually how Even how much power ability either of these agencies will have to move quickly And then as bill pointed out it's like they really have to spend a lot of time thinking about what is our what our priorities so Will they do a good job of that. I certainly trust They will But and But they're under there's there they're being pulled in a lot of different directions. You know i think in some ways it's like there's the you know we focus so much on what the antitrust law on what doj and ftc. Do you know how that plays out in the courts. I mean i think what's really amazing about the or what's what's what's what's really encouraging about. This is that the Biden president biden saying to janet. Yellen you have an immense amount of anti-monopoly power authority over in treasury treasury secretary. Janet yellen you have an immense amount of ability to fight concentration. You know this is true in banking it's true and financial services it's true Even with treasury like beer and alcohol which is kinda comes under their parts of that regulatory regime coming in under their sway under their control You know they're saying to The secretary of defense. You need to be part of this. You need to use your power to do this. They have said very clearly to Agriculture secretary vilsek. They said here's what you're gonna do. This is what you're gonna fix rate now because you well in the case of time vilsek should have fixed this ten years ago When you were there last time round so in some ways what they're doing is they're taking the pressure..

"John lewis voting rights. Act is important but we really need it coupled with the for the people act so understand me and hear me clearly. We're not giving up. Regardless of their procedural votes to obstruct a regardless of the filibuster looked when the filibuster stands in the way of legislation. Going forward than we need to get rid of it and so we're not stopping this effort. We are really just beginning. We're not given up on this fight. Are you concerned about voter. Enthusiasm among democrats in relation to say turn out in the next congressional election. When they're watching this obstructionism in the senate frustrate the democratic agenda there lawrence. What we have all been reminded of i think is the people who blood sweat and tears are in our right to vote people who gave their lives people who dedicated their lives. I watched the movie selma yet again over the weekend and and relived yet again. I've certainly heard the stories directly from john. Lewis but watching him being beat down on the edmund pettus bridge and others if you remember who came from all over the united states based on the moral call from dr king some of them did not make it back home and so i don't think people are discouraged at all. I think they are motivated. When you try to take away their most precious i think they're motivated more than ever. And so the republicans obstruction. Which is they should. it's shameful. We'll do just the opposite of their intentions. It will motivate people to go to the polls and exercise their right to vote. A president biden issued a statement saying he would be speaking more about voting rights next week. Let's listen to what white house press. Secretary jen psaki said about that today. Will you want to hear from him is that there are many ways to work across the country With activists with states with legislators using every lever at our disposal to expand access improve access to voting for people across the country. Talk about some of the ways that he wants to continue to do that. Cartman doings did you expect the president possibly to go on the road with this message lawrence. I certainly think it is important enough to do. Just that reminded of my own parents as you. Well know my mother was a maid and my father was a janitor. Works long hard days. But i cannot remember a time where they did not go to vote and lawrence. I think they did because they understood that when they cast their vote it mattered just as much as the richest and poorest are richest man or woman i in town and so i think president buying has certainly demonstrated his commitment to protecting the sacred right to vote and i do believe that there are a lot of good. We know there are some bad actors in some states watching my home state as well but enough good actors round the state states around the nation who will take action to protect the vote. I've even Introduced legislation myself that will create a ballot tracking system and requires dropbox is also looking at alternative means for signature verification. This is important. I know president biden is committed to it and there are many other people in spite of the obstructionists. Who are committed to this. Effort carpool ruin val demings. Thank you very much for joining us again tonight. We always appreciate thank you and coming up. Senator at marquee will join us on. Tonight's breaking news that democratic and republican senate negotiators have reached a framework on a bipartisan infrastructure. Which excludes top priorities of democrats which the democrats then plan to pass a separate infrastructure bill running on a separate legislative track. I.

"While promoting the equality act that would make felons of orthodox believers biden would have approved updike's declaration that religion includes quote and acceptance and concentration of what is close quote as long as the is includes the dogmas of the sexual revolution. How can i love the man. When i think he's presiding happily over the destruction of little human beings and the meltdown of our republic. Well i can remember jesus command to love my enemies even my political and ideological enemies recognizing his struggle with the demon that has afflicted me helps me understand how to follow the apostle paul's admonition to think of others as better than yourself philippians two three my own speech therapy as an adult at a world class facility gave me a breakthrough that a biden has apparently not been able to enjoy yet. He's been willing to expose his affliction to the world in ways that i might never have tolerated. I have to give them credit. For that biden's infamous gaffs and public. Non sequiturs might be as much from the stuttering demon as from alleged dementia. I know it is like to block on words and search for substitutes sometimes changing direction in a sentence when the search comes up empty so i have sympathy for his struggle and admire his determination to plough ahead at the same time i hope his policies are frustrated. That was my friend. Dr gerald mcdermott with insights about jesus central command.

"I think there's significant environmental con negative environmental consequences. Do it and so. I think that that was very very good. Move and i was happy to see that. But i just wanted my two cents on that you mentioned the other order the the other order and this is something we should really special show on some some point. President trump had created what was called the seventeen seventy six commission which was kinda. Give a report on on the status of of the teaching of american history in some somewhat response to the new york times. Sixteen nineteen project Which you know. The the basis of of that is that america is founded on and because of slavery and really takes a views everything in american history through that that racial land is so trump. Went together this group. The panel had some folks who are notably conservative. Larry arnn of hillsdale college. I think was the chair. But you also had a you. Know minority representation. You had folks. From various ivy league schools and and princeton stanford historians who weighed in on this and they they put together a report and the report will be able to get through the government but biden on the first day took it down and disbanded. The commission and that to me is a little bit of a troubling A statement right again if this is We are we are now all about unity and getting along and sharing our our our. Our commonalities outweigh our differences If you're either the seventeen seventy six report and also copy and you can still get at the heritage foundation It's it it comes across is really kind of noncontroversial. I don't think. I don't think there's anything that you would say. Oh gosh yeah. I mean absolutely plenty of historians would disagree with that. I believe one of the things just off. The top of my head is one of the big challenges. It said of a to america's principles in this report along with slavery and fascism they mention progressivism as a challenge to america's principles. I i have a pretty big problem with that. Or is there are plenty of historians and there weren't a lot of historians on this panel. Have a lot to point out a lot of problems with logic and reasoning here and that not just that i was just the idea i i would think that as somebody who cares about the state's rights and is concerned about big government trying to tell us what the thing that the idea that there should be some sort of national commission to direct patriotic education. That that's creepy to me and very troubling so take a look at what the take a look at. What the progressives did i would. I would think the the folks who were jailed for passing out pamphlets opposing world. Where one might disagree that that progressivism wasn't a in in Opposition to some some fundamental american principles..

It's certainly a very tiny number of people given the size of the country but they can certainly do an awful lot of damage. And i think it's good that we're going to see a serious focus on that right and i would compare it and all of this i mean. Let's let's look at islamic fundamentalism Terrorist right and and to say that There are islamic fundamentalist terrorists in his country. Yes that's absolutely true. Is there a large rowing of them. no it's it's It's people here and there at small cells. Those are absolutely dangerous and they need to be investigated and shut shutdown and the same goes for white.

I agree so it sounds like we're we're more or less on on the same page on this. I would say yeah ok well on that. Let's just take a quick break and then we will be right back and talk about joe. Biden's not his words but his excecutive actions. I remember back. When i was in my late twenties and i began to notice the first signs of hair loss. It really surprised me indefinitely.

"Really kind of kind of ludicrous. But not chris. I'm going to push back on that night ludicrous. because it wasn't open question. Given the given how the legislation how the enabling legislation for the cfpb was written and the court actually concluded that there was a there was a defect in in that in that language. And so but saying that. it's ludicrous. i think would be going too far. Let me back then. How about instead of ludicrous. Let me say inconsistent with the principles that i just chunk set forth about the that in in our government you know throughout these various agencies There ought to be some sort of political accountability. Eventually whether that's with you know congress who appoints or dismisses where president who appoints than an agency. You can't just run. its own. Show independent of congress or the presidency Yeah but my point. My point isn't To whether he has the power not to do it. Because i think he absolutely does. But the if you're going to handle at the manor which it's it's being handled in this case the the head of the cfpb. Did you know step aside and said yeah absolutely jogo hadn't and appoint you're on person. You know one other thing. I wanted to mention something that didn't happen. There was a lot of word that or concern that there would be these big protested state capitals which were seen as much softer targets in a way not protected by massive show of force at the nation's capital and yet that fizzle about as badly as any of those things. There are some instances where i think in in sacramento and albany. There was like one guy who was there with zayn. And and i'm wondering i mean it was. It was sort of a happily. You know you could be happy at how pitiful that was but it also some people might say well. What does that mean about. White nationalist extremism is it. You know is it as big of a deal. Do we need to worry about this. Sort of domestic terrorism. And i wanted to get your take on that because of course you know our our state capitol here. Columbus was one of those places that there was thought to be the threat of some sort of real action and like in pretty much everywhere else. It just didn't happen. Gutty america that goofball show.

We're going to start this very non. Comprehensive survey by speaking with virginia. Blasio's virginia's a ninth generation daytona who up near a city on the texas mexico border were in the south texas. Brush country so a lot of trees and prickly pear cactus virginia is also an environmental science and policy consultant that usa producer. Scarsi spoke with virginia. And she's going to pick up the story from here. Virginia lives in a rural area on a fourth generation. Cattle ranch that been her family of for close to one hundred and twenty years. We inherited it from my great uncle. Who was a grand champion calf roper. During the great depression he traveled the radio circuit with his brother. You know they were fortunate enough to be born into families that had a lot of land and so they were able to run cattle and support their families. That way and my dad was enamored with that history of cowboy culture. He virginia and her brother on the land. She remembers running around as a little kid watching her. Dad moved these huge cows from field to field and she thinks growing up this way set the foundation for a love of nature that eventually led her to go to grad school to study climate change. And that's where she was. When in two thousand eleven he had still all the cattle on the ranch because the drought guy particularly bad and <hes>. There was a national study. That came out shortly after that drought showing bet <hes>. Climate change me the heat waves longer and temperatures more intense that year and so we know that climate change has already been impacting us. There had always been droughts in south texas though. Virginia says they got worse and worse over time. It meant the grass wouldn't grow. Which meant virginia's dad had to start buying a lot of food to keep his cattle alive so much so that he wasn't making money off his ranch anymore. You know it's kind of funny. Because i was always kinda hassling. My dad was like dad counts. Produce methane and methane is really bad for the climate but when it came to the point where he had to sell them because he realized a drought was so bad. It put things into a different perspective for me. Because i realized that he really didn't have a choice. I realized that we had kind of gotten into this plane. With climate change where it wasn't theoretical. It wasn't something far off in the future that could happen. It was it was happening now
