Vivek Ramaswamy: The Threat of Artificial Intelligence
"You have you're in these meetings and these rooms what can we expect from a president Rama Swami about AI or do you not see it as a threat I do see it as a threat I do see it as a threat especially as it applies to human responses to AI So one of the greatest threats to AI then comes from actually within each of us as human beings So I'm a tennis fan and professional tenants when they got rid of line judges The first generation of AI that made the line calls you could see it with your eyes Sometimes it would be wrong but people stopped arguing about it because if it was the AI you can't argue Well now if the AI tells you how you're supposed to behave in response to the next COVID pandemic or in response to climate change will people have a natural bad habit of bending the need to that form of authority That's one of the underappreciated risks of AI as the human response to a chat GPT will now tell us on a given day How would I deal with it So here's the dilemma China will not adopt any constraints that we ourselves don't adopt So the analogy I see in the right framework then is think about it like gain of function research Gain of function research was we banded in this country but rogue actors like Anthony Fauci had it funded in places like China anyway and that led to a global pandemic but still the U.S. suffered from So with AI we can't make that same mistake We need to treat this as sort of a nuclear non proliferation framework to say to China that we're not going to constrain ourselves unless you constrain yourself but we're leading the way and in the same way we should have made sure gain of function research was banned everywhere rather than just funded through the backdoor in China I want to make sure the same thing doesn't happen with respect to AI policy either So the first thing is I would say is China has to play by the same rules that we do But second is we bring the nuclear non proliferation framework and monitoring to actually the development of potentially harmful and uncontrollable AI And at a high level that's what I would that's the way I would see this

2024 Republican hopefuls rush to defend Marine who put NYC subway rider in fatal chokehold
"Some 2024 Republican presidential hopefuls are rushing to defend the marine veteran who put a New York City subway rider in a fatal chokehold. Florida governor Ron DeSantis urged the nation to show Daniel penny that America's got his back, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley called for New York's governor to pardon penny and BioTech entrepreneur Vivek Rama Swami, donated $10,000 to pennies, legal defense fund. The 24 year old has been charged with manslaughter. His lawyers as penny, who is white, acted in self defense when he pinned Jordan Neely, who was black to the subway floor in a chokehold, despite the fact that nearly never got physical with any one on the train. The act captured on cell phone video, Julie Walker, New York.

Vivek Ramaswamy Debates Chuck Todd on Gender
"Several stories I want to get to here and we have some really exciting guests coming up later in the hour. I want to play a clip from my friend Vivek Rama Swami, debating chuck Todd on gender. He missed one of the great comebacks it was right there he could have done it. But play cut 8, please. But below the age of 18, I think it's perfectly legitimate to say that we won't allow genital mutilation or chemical castration through puberty blockers. But how do you know it's that? Again, how do you know are you confident that you know that gender is as binary as you're describing it? Are you confident that it isn't a spectrum? I am at least as a scientist? Well, there's two X chromosomes if you're a woman, an X and a Y that means a lot of scientific research out there. There's a lot of scientific research out there that says gender is a spectrum. Chuck, I respectfully disagree. Gender dysphoria for most of our history all the way through the DSM-V has been characterized as a mental health disorder, and I don't think it's compassionate to affirm that. I think that's cruelty. Look, Vivek should have just said, listen, you don't have to be a meteorologist. To see that it's raining. It would have been a good comeback. His comeback was great. Vivek did wonderful though. Lots of scientific research and know there isn't. No, no, there's scientific pontif. There's scientific conjecture of these radical academics. And again, he said, how can you know for certain vivec could have leaned in? Chuck, can you tell me what a woman is? Because until you can tell me what a woman is, I ain't gonna play your silly little game. XX XY end of story.

How Vivek Ramaswamy Played a Role in Getting Don Lemon Fired at CNN
"Want to talk about a lively and quite interesting exchange that occurred on CNN between Don lemon and Vivek Rama Swami. Who was on this podcast, gosh, what a week or so a couple of weeks ago. And Vivek is this young Indian American guy running for president, and CNN invited him to come on. And he got into it with Don lemon. And the reason I bring this up is for a couple of reasons. Well, one reason is that it looks to be one of the last straws that got Don lemon fired. And so I want to talk about it from that angle. What happened and what is it about that exchange that caused the CNN people to go, oh, that's it. Don, you're out of here. But then second, I want to do something that very few people have done. And that is to look at what they will arguing about because that in itself is also interesting. They were discussing the civil rights movement. They were discussing who has the right to speak about civil rights, is this the special prerogative of blacks, do Indian Americans get to weigh in? Should Indian Americans just sort of shut up and be grateful that the civil rights movement delivered the goods for them too. So all of this is at issue here. But let's sort of just start with the incident itself because. Lemon was sitting alongside his co host. This is poppy Harlow. And something very interesting happened. He got into it with Vivek Rama Swami and you can kind of watch the female co host poppy Harlow kind of her body language is she pulls back and she kind of like pulls up her phone. She begins to look away. You can see she's very clearly signaling to the audience, but also to her CNN bosses, I want no part of this.

Who Could Replace Tucker Carlson on Fox?
"News is going to have a little bit of a problem here because they've got to kind of make sure that the viewers don't totally desert them. I mean, you look at the ratings from the other night and MSNBC is doing pretty well newsmax is doing pretty well. There's a lot of places to go as we know in the splintered media environment where you can come directly to a personality straight to a personality straight here to Trish Regan, for example, or should Tucker decide to do his own thing. And I think he'd be smart to do so. You'll be able to go directly to him. So there's a whole new opportunity for you as a consumer. And I think younger people certainly get this. And older people are starting to get it as well. But let's just say, I were running things at Fox News right now, first of all, it never would have gotten to this, but if I were suddenly in charge, who would I put in? Who would you put in for that matter? Send us a comment. Let us know who your first choice would be as a host for the show. We've been assembling names because by the way, some of you have already been saying this, Brian kilmeade, of course, stepped in for Tucker, tough spot to be in. I think for him, you know, the first night and everything. But he's well regarded at the network. So Brian kilmeade, he's on the list. Jesse watters. Jesse watters came up as a producer under Bill O'Reilly. He used to do waters world or he'd go out and ask these crazy questions and kind of basic stuff actually like basic civics. Who did America fight in the Revolutionary War? The French? He's very much a conservative. And so he's somebody who could step into the slot. Piers Morgan is over there. He's part of the whole Fox system right now. He's very, very liked by the Murdoch family. Certainly by Rupert Murdoch, appears to it. He's got a British accent, so I don't know how that goes down. Can I say that? You're being agent. I'm just saying. If that's a fact. It's a long time ago. But hey, you know what, Steve Hilton, he's on the weekend. He's got a British accent. Maybe it works. Mark Stein, he's got an accent. I think some kind of Canadian accent, but he used to fill in a lot for Tucker. And he's kind of eccentric and he's got neat ideas. So he's another possible contender. I'm going to throw Candace Owens in there because we don't have a woman. Women. Nobody's mentioned a woman and I don't know how deep the bench really is for conservative women over there. They've got Laura Ingraham who does a great job. And then you got, I'm just going to put his name in the ring because he is a guest on the show today. You got a guy named Vivek Rama Swami, who's

First 2024 GOP Presidential Primary Debate Set in Milwaukee
"As we enter the presidential primary season, we're already talking about debates. Of course, the GOP announced that they'll have their first presidential debate. Coming up in August, followed by one probably sometime in September, not sure they've said a specific date. The one in August will be in Milwaukee. The second one will follow at the Reagan library and we're already having this debate over debates, because president Donald Trump said yesterday, he's not sure he'll participate in these early debates. And why should he, he says? Because he has such a big lead over any of his present opposing candidates. Of course we have Nikki Haley, already announced. We have ten Scott for my home state of South Carolina as well, potentially entering the race. Asa Hutchinson, whom I'm missing out, Rama swamis in there, possibly Ron DeSantis, and that's where that's the one everyone's waiting to hear. Is Ron DeSantis going to get in to this primary.

Vivek Ramaswamy Shuts Down Don Lemon's Race Debate
"Did you see Vivek Rama Swami's dialog with Don lemon? I think it's really worth highlighting. Yes, I did. And I want to play it for you. It was a back and forth between Don lemon and Vivek Rama Swami, who is running for the presidency, and this was on CNN morning day or good day, America or good day or whatever morning day. I thought Don LeMond was supposed to be fired because he was insensitive to women. So, oh, let me get this straight. You could be insensitive to insensitive women almost gets you fighter at CNN, but if you expose yourself to young teenage girls at a Wisconsin locker room, nobody cares. Play cut one O 6 vivec Rama Swami debating Don lamon on race play cut one O 6. What do you have anything on this before I move on to China? I don't see what one has to do with the other, but go on. I took up a lot of time with Fox. Oh, it's fine. We have time. I don't really see what one has to do with the other, especially consider and using the Civil War to talk about black Americans. That war was not fought for black people to have guns. That's not what was fought for black people to have freedoms in this country. Actually, that's why the Civil War was fought. For black people to have guns. I think actually, you don't know funny fact is black people did not get to enjoy the other freedoms until their Second Amendment rights were secured. And I think that that's one of the lessons that we are allowed to enjoy the freedoms. I disagree with you. On that Don. I disagree with you. I think you're doing a disservice to our country. By failing to recognize the fact that we have already relaxed. And you live in this country, then you can disagree with me, but we're not. You mentioned it. I disagree. John, I think we have to be able to talk about these issues in the open, regardless of the color of our skin, black Americans today to say that compare that to 1865 and 1964. Absolutely 65 equal rights for this actually. I think it's insulting. There's just so much wrong with this clip and Vivek did great. First of all, so Vivek has dark melanin content. So what? So Don lamon is saying, well, if you had dark skin, he has dark skin, he's Indian for goodness sake. So what kind of colorism did Vivek ramaswami experience who grew up with nothing, high IQ guy and became worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Second thing that's wrong with this clip is Don LeMond really saying that black people can't enjoy freedoms.

Possible Presidential Candidates That Conservatives Will Love!
"For those of you that know me, you might know that, listen, I'm straight up with you. I am a Trump guy in this sense. I love Trump. I love Trump for it. I believe that we need some justice justice for what happened in 2020. I love his energy policies. I love his foreign policy. We weren't getting into World War three, but having said that, I'm not mad at governor Ron DeSantis for running. I think governor Ron DeSantis is a juggernaut and I think he's been treated unfairly even by some in the conservative movement. So I'm going to talk about that and what he's done for Disney, which is absolutely amazing because I think a lot of conservatives are getting the twist it and here's the way that I view things. Again, I love Trump. I love desantis. I love the Vic Rama Swami. I love Larry elder. I think those four guys, those are the four guys that I'm watching because I can imagine them on the stage if in fact Ron DeSantis does announce. And I'm like, these are some power hitters. These are some guys that are fighters in my opinion. These are some guys that are gonna bring some real good

We Have to Give Props to Vivek Ramaswamy
"The Vic, Rama Swami. I have to give him some props. I made a video earlier today on my YouTube channel. Where I showed an interview between him and Don lemon and I have to say this, he is incredibly impressive to me and I said this on my video and I know I'm gonna get a lot of pushback for it, but I said, hey, if Donald Trump wasn't such a celebrity in rockstar and he had already had a little evidence of him doing well for the country, I would say a little evidence, maybe a lot of evidence of him doing well for the country. I think Vivek, Rama Swami would be a great candidate for president. And I even put Vivek over Rhonda Sanchez. After all of the interviews that I listened to, Vivek, Vivek. After I listened to the things that he said after I've seen him in interviews after I see how articulate he is and I see his accomplishments as a businessman and I'm already biased towards businessmen lead in a business which I think America is a business. You have to be able to have strong communication skills, you have to be bold, you have to be courageous, you have to take chances, you have to be able to balance a budget. You have to have all of these resources in your knowledge bank in order to do well for this country and I honestly believe somebody like him can do well. I wish I had the clip, but I'll have to send a clip over to the team. I forgot to send it where he literally schools Don lemon as Don lemon tries to race bait and tell him that the civil rights are Civil War had nothing to do with black folks. And also that black people don't experience the same rights as white people in this country.

America Now Has a Two-Tier Justice System
"I want to lay a broader context by quoting a recent statement by Vivek Rama Swami, the young Indian guy who I'm going to have on the podcast, by the way, coming up shortly. Anyway, he goes America now has a two tiered justice system, and he gives three examples. Trump is indicted while Clinton pays a small fine. This is for campaign finance offenses. Antifa and BLM riders run free while January 6th protesters are imprisoned without bail. And his third example, Douglas Mackey faces ten years for the same joking memes that Christina Wong posts with impunity. So let's take a look. You guys, Douglas Mackey, who posted the following meme, and you can tell he's a smart aleck, he obviously thought this was really funny. And he has a poster of African Americans for Hillary. And he says, avoid the line, vote from home, text Hillary to 5 9 9 two 5. So what he's basically saying is, you know, if you want to vote, you can skip the line. You don't have to vote that way. You can vote just by sending a text. Now obviously he's joking, you can't vote that way. And this kind of stuff is all not only all over the Internet, but it's something that's been joked about for decades. I remember going back to the 80s and 90s people joking like, hey, listen, you know, we better get the word out of the Democrats. Make sure you vote on Wednesday election day. Given the wrong information, they show up in the wrong day. Obviously this is always been intended as a quip and a joke. And that's how Mackie intended it. But nevertheless, the Justice Department pretends like, oh, this is election suppression. This is a guy trying to discourage African Americans from voting, and it goes before a jury in New York, a left wing jewelry, by the way, the juries in New York, not a whole lot different from the juries in D.C. that are considering these January 6th, cases, and the jury finds Doug Mackey, guilty, and now this poor guy is facing, I kid you not ten years in prison ten years in prison for a meme.

Vivek Ramaswamy: If President, Creating a Plan for Personnel
"The vive Rama Swami were to win the presidency Do you have a plan for personnel Because I make the case you're going to have the greatest plans in the world You screw up personnel your presidency is done for day one That's a good private sector lesson Dan and having built companies the people are everything I don't blame Trump but I want to learn from both his mistakes and what he did well Frankly I've said this if I'm president I want Trump as an adviser because he's actually taken on the same deep state that I'm looking to take that agenda to the next level I want those insights I want that understanding of how to actually do it So here's my philosophy Is actually not just people selection but you have to actually purge what's already there So you have to identify certain government agencies that have gone so far off the grid So far off the reservation of where they should be like the Department of Education like the FBI and in both of those cases I have pledged to shut them down And in the case of the government indicated the Department of Education which actually visited in front of Washington D.C. yesterday I went right in front of it as I said We're going to shut it down That was not coming back I also went to the J. Edgar Hoover building in Washington D.C. yesterday And there I said yes of course we need federal law enforcement Of course that's an important function But when a particular agency and its culture becomes so corrupted and politicized the only right answer is to shut it down and create something new built from scratch like a startup to take its place And I think that that's actually one of the models that Trump did not use or maybe he didn't get to using as I said I want to take that agenda to the next level learning from those learning from those experiences I'm not saying I would have done it right on the first try either but I also don't believe in having to relearn the same lessons build on the foundation laid learn from it maybe even learn from him directly as I said I take him as an adviser but actually take that agenda the full distance to actually get that job done with moral authority and principled confidence Kind of like Reagan did in many ways too That's what I want to deliver Yeah

Vivek Ramaswamy: Firing Politically-Biased DOJ, FBI Members
"My last question for you the fake Rama Swami presidential candidate 2024 I believe having been a federal agent that the DoJ and the FBI are our biggest source of trouble in the bureaucracy as we're seeing right now with the attack on Trump Will you commit to the audience here that you will give a good look to the firing of anyone who doesn't put the constitution first whether at the FBI and assistant United States attorney or anyone who puts their politics for the oath of office regardless of the media outcome because they're going to fillet you for getting rid of these people like they fillet George W. Bush but it is perfectly within your authorities potential president to get rid of them I will get rid of them I will fire them I believe the U.S. president is constitutionally empowered to do it You fire them and you fire the legions of people under them That is the key I've seen it in the private sector That is what I'm core part of my domestic agenda Dan We're going to go in there and shut down those agencies and for the agencies we don't shut down We're going to fire the people who are actually corrupting them And you know what You don't have to vote for me now That's for next year But you could vote to get these ideas on the debate stage even if you just gave that dollar It's literally before the march 31st quarter deadline at Vivek 2024 dot com If you gave a dollar that's actually what helps get a prominent spot in the debate stage And whoever wins this election we better level up the conversation in our party to actually define our agenda That's what I want to focus on And I only got ten seconds but do you pledge to support whoever the GOP nominee is I do as a condition for getting on the debate stage I'm not a partisan party hack but at the end of the day I think that we need to unite in actually taking our country back and I will help do that in whatever way I can as a citizen So we are running to win this

"Forget for a moment about Trump versus Santos versus Hailey Rama Swami I don't even want to get into any of that stuff right now because it's turned into I think primaries are good things but it's turned into kind of like a ridiculous food fight I think at this point this is about something a lot bigger than Donald Trump I don't care about anyone's feelings about him at this point This thing up in New York is an abomination I don't know any other word to describe it It's a law about a misdemeanor with a statute of limitations has already expired on this business records thing That was latched on to a felony that exists at the federal level because he was a federal candidate that they can't even prove happened and that the statute of limitations is expired on too I mean isn't this what the Soviets did Remember beria like show me the man I'll show you the crime What's the difference Yeah you actually stole that example right out of my mouth I was about to say that this is dozi level behavior And unfortunately it's become all too common on the left And what I like to remind people is it doesn't actually matter how you feel about Donald Trump whether you love him or hate him whether you want him to be president again or whether you want him to disappear Because the left isn't going to stop with Donald Trump here If they can go and they can de platformer president like Twitter and Facebook and Google and YouTube did sitting president of the United States If they can go in arrest whoever they want and throw them in prison for things that are crimes for example walking through an open door during business hours held open for you by police to a public building like happened to so many people in January 6th And then if they can go and arrest a potential a previous president in a potential future president for crimes that don't exist they're not stopping at Donald Trump Their goal is to criminalize all political opposition and it starts with him but it's not going to end there

Liberal Takeover: My Chat With Dave Rubin
"I'm not sure he gets another four years at this point. If he does not run again, who are they going to put up? I mean, have they got a bench that's even worth looking at? I think Kamala Harris would be worse if you can imagine worse for the Democrats than Hillary Clinton. And who else am Gavin Newsom, his track record in California would scare the heck out of any other normal American. I don't know who they got. Well, it's interesting because one of the things I've been talking about on the show right now is that the bench that's starting to coalesce on the Republican side is pretty solid. You know, whether you like all these people are not the idea of Trump, desantis, Vivek Rama Swami, Nikki Haley, Mike Pompeo. These are interesting qualified for various reasons people. Now, someone that's on the left may hate all of them, but there's a track record for these people, all of them. The people on the left right now, you're right. I mean, Kamala Harris was polling basically at zero in her own party when she got out when she was originally running against Joe Biden, you know, a couple of years ago. So that's one thing. But the other thing is they have almost nobody. I mean, are you going to put Pete up there? He's highly unqualified even to be transportation secretary. It was a diversity hire. They basically admitted it. We want the first gay transportation secretary. I don't know what your sexuality has to do with your ability to figure out which way roads are supposed to go, but okay, fine. They don't have much and the fact that, you know, most of us seem to think it would be going towards Gavin Newsom is so insane. And I sort of think so too, but it just shows you what is going on on that side of the aisle.

Do Presidential Candidates Have a Message That Will Motivate Voters?
"Wondering now, what is the Republican message going to be? And we have a new and we have a new candidate who announced about ten days ago, Vivek, Rama swanny. And he is known as the woke CEO, I don't know how far he's going to go. He's made a lot of noise on social media. He's doing the circuit and talking about different things. But the message seems to be one that his, it's been out there before. It's like what you and I have talked about before about bumper sticker. He talks about, well, we don't need the Department of Education. Okay, Rick Perry said that 8 years ago, most Republicans have said that for a long time. Are we just revisiting this? Or, you know, what's the issue? Well, we don't need to pardon the energy, okay? Well, we've dealt with that one before. You know, we've dealt with the diversity equity inclusion stuff. He's an interesting voice, younger voice, but James is the younger generation and my generation going to come together on a Canada that is older, like say a Donald Trump, a former president who still holds a lot of sway in the Republican Party or you've got Nikki Haley. Tim Scott probably getting in to my pants, Pompeo. To say, actually, present the difference. I mean, where are we going to get past the talking points in this campaign? Doug, this is whether you're Republican or Democrat. This is the issue, and it's the generational gap. Especially the Republican Party, right? It feels like there's just not a young audience. They're out there. Just make that clear. They are out there. Right. But it feels like they're not being seen or heard by the party. And I think that's always going to be the issue. That's why you always see a lot of younger people on the left.
The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
Are Americans Ready for Another Trump Presidency?
"All right, mister Rama Swami, you've heard the interview. What do you make? Of him. Well, you know, first of all, he sounds like a really interesting and appealing fellow and you just absolutely butchered his first name over and over and over again. It takes me, I've got audio dyslexia. That is not new to say archbishop chapu. You're easy. Byron York is easy. I wish everyone at the bill or something. One of the things that strikes me is the U.S. government is the most sprawling complex bureaucracy in the world. Yes. It's very hard. That many people who have really a good grasp of how the U.S. just the executive branch, how it works. The Pentagon itself is the most sprawling complex bureaucracy. In the world. And I think you could say that one of Donald Trump's great failures, maybe his greatest failure. Is that he came into office with a lot of governing instincts that a lot of Americans agreed with. But he didn't try to understand how the U.S. government works and how he could push it in one direction or another. Which was particularly important for Republican because so much of the bureaucracy is going to be opposed to him. And you have to try to reach deep into the bureaucracy. You can't just appoint a cabinet secretary and decide that you've now got the Justice Department going in the direction you want it to go or any other cabinet department. It's a really big complex thing and I do think that American Trump's time in office has probably soured some Americans on the idea of a businessman running for president.

You can find me on social media the Carl Jackson show. Also check out my podcast anywhere where you get your podcasts. The Carl Jackson show is where you can find me wherever you get your podcasts. So listen, again, guys, it's going to get nasty. Just remember, these are the, these are the two candidates that we want to definitely see be president at some point in time. Also, there's other people that might enter the race. There's rumors that Larry elder might enter the race Vivek Rama Rama Swami. I hope that I'm not mispronouncing his name. He's a young gun that's absolutely amazing. I want these guys to get in. These are the, it would be a bomb and flare elder get in. These are the best of the best. You know what the Bible teaches us? That iron sharpens iron. That's better for us. Now, frankly, too, it's better for trumpet. The more people that gets in, I'm just being real with you. He'll win because he'll split. He's got 30% base right from the start. So he's got a head start. So the more people that get in, the likelier it is that Trump is, I'm just being real with you, right? The likelier it is that he'll win. Nonetheless, you get, you get Larry elder in. You get the Vic, he's in. You get these people talking about the issues that are important to them. You make a case. Who knows? Who could who could win? But beyond that, it's better for us because the things that Larry elder has to say. The things that Ron DeSantis will have to say, the things that Vic Rama Swami will have to say will resonate with all of us and guess what? The top dog will likely have to take on those issues. And that's good for us. That's good for us. Call me selfish, but I want a president that works for me. Honestly, that's our constitution.

If Indicted, Would Trump Still Be the Republican Nominee?
"I've got to a friend of mine who's a Trump supporter. He says if there's an official indictment, his chances are done. He will never get the nomination. I said not so fast. As I keep saying, you count him out at your own peril. There's a guy hospitalized, what was a week before the election two weeks, three weeks before the election? And came bounding back campaigning like a fierce machine that he is. This is a guy who picked off 16 very competent skilled Republican presidential candidates in 2016. He beat everybody. You don't think he's capable of doing it again? I mean, I'm asking the question, you know me, I'm agnostic. Heck, if Vivek Rama Swami is the Republican nominee for president, I'll be on team Vivek. Don't worry. Whoever the Republican is, I'm supporting. We desperately need to end the Democrat leadership in The White House. We got to get rid of the Democrat president at the ballot box. Big time.

"I'm Laura Cantor, Fox News. The Senate is currently debating the Democrats inflation reduction act. With a marathon voter Rama, where Republicans are vowing to make it as difficult as possible for Democrats. Fox's John Scott reports. Democrats claim the climate energy and tax bill they call the inflation reduction act will not only lower costs for consumers, but won't raise taxes on the middle class. All 50 Democrats are expected to vote in favor of the $700 billion bill, Republicans argue it won't alleviate inflation and could make it worse. Republicans say the bill will raise people's taxes. Democrats argue the bill will increase taxes only for large corporations. White House physician doctor Kevin O'Connor says that President Biden tested negative for COVID-19 Saturday. He will remain in isolation until he tests negative for a second time. Taiwan responding to China's military drills that have started near the self ruled island. Fox's Alexandria Hoff has more.

"Rama Swami. He is the author of Woke Inc. Which is all about how corporate America got taken over by the radical left and what we can do to fight back against it, Vic, Thanks so much for joining the show. Thanks, Ben. Thanks for having me. So let's talk about what exactly happened to corporate America. I think a lot of conservatives have been taken aback by the the radical move the corporate America has made in favor of Wokeness. And we sort of always assume that the business community was going to trend conservative. And if you look at at business contributions by political party, they still trend toward Republicans. But the biggest corporations in America seemed to be headed now by people who are determined bound and determined. Involve themselves in world politics. So what exactly happened here? I think the thing that happened then was the 2008 financial crisis. This is actually the untold story that I kind of reveal in my book actually got my first job at a hedge fund in New York in the fall of 2000 and seven ahead of the eight crisis. I saw this unfold firsthand. Well, what happened was after the eight crisis. Corporations were the bad guys and what the old left wanted to do was to take money from those wealthy corporate fat cats. Redistributed to poor people agree or not. That's what the old left wanting to do. But the new woke left was born right around the same time. Barack Obama just become the first black president, United States There was this new diversity movement in the country that said, Actually, the real problem wasn't economic injustice or poverty. No, it was racial injustice and misogyny and bigotry. And guess what? That actually presented the opportunity of a generation from big business because they could go from being the bad guys to be in the good guys. All they had to do was recite the new woke catechism lend their legitimacy to the new work movement, and, in return, they would get effectively the protection of liberal politicians in return. Still, Con Valley does the same thing censoring content. The won't move it doesn't want to see online in return expects effectively the new Democratic Party to look the other way when it comes to leaving their monopoly power intact. And that was the result of this arranged marriage. It was more like mutual prostitution. And the net result of that act was the illegitimate birth of what I call the woke industrial complex, which I think is far more powerful than either big government or big business alone because it can do what either of those can't do on its own. And I think that's the defining threat to liberty today. So let's let's talk for a second about whether that is a a sort of marriage of convenience that can last is durable. So I think they're a couple of theories here. One is that eventually the local eat these people to that event. Really the politicians who have spoken out in favour of weakness and have made quote unquote racial justice and racial equity, their centerpiece as opposed to economic equity. Eventually, there will be a move from one to the other that that you'll end up in Bernie Sanders land. You'll just take the long way around. If you go with the woke because eventually that that really is a large part of their agenda. The other theory is that this can continue indefinitely that you can have a few major corporations just as you had Many totalitarian states. Major private corporations that are essentially sponsored by governmental entities or woke entities and these become the faces of the world, and they just get to retain their market share forever. Which one do you think is more likely? Yes. So I think that there's a I think I think there's one distinction. I want to draw Ben, which is that? Actually, there is a big distinction between the Bernie Sanders left and the Kamala Harris left. And I think that what big business in this country is trying to do is to marginalise the Bernie Sanders left at the expense of elevating the Kamala Harris identity politics obsessed left, And that's exactly the kind of the the tug of war that they're actually playing kind of like a puppet master on the on the left itself within the left in fracturing the left in a way that actually elevates the Camilla Harris types that are too far less threatening to make business in this country. Then the Bernie Sanders types who actually agree or not actually take a more Universalist Marxist view that isn't contingent on skin deep identities like race or gender or sexual orientation. That being said, I agree with your basic premise, at least in the first part of your question that the pendulum could naturally swing the other way. And certainly any marriage in which each side has secret contempt for the other will not end. Well, I do think that's a feature of this marriage. However, I don't know if we have enough time for that to equal abrasive naturally, which I think could take a decade or more to happen. I think that by the end of the next decade we wouldn't have a country left at least. Country like the one that we think of as As really embodying the ideals of American democracy and American individual is, um I think capitalism itself may have ruined that democracy from the inside itself. So I do think that they're going to have to more proactive solutions, some of which I talked about in the book, some of which involved even handed application of policy. Things like adding political beliefs up there next to race, gender, sexual orientation of the civil rights statutes. I could go on with more of the solutions. But I do think that we need to be more proactive about it because I don't think the timeline to the natural pendulum swinging back is going to be sufficient. The marriage even though it would fall apart on its own, might take too long to fall apart before we have a country left in the end. We're gonna get to more of this in just one second first, I wanted to let you know if you really enjoy the Ben Shapiro show and the daily where we have a bunch of other shows over a daily wire dot com. Let Michael Knowles tell you about his.

"So when republicans say democrats can just do it themselves. They're right democrats can remedy the debt limit themselves but democrats can't waive the debt limit themselves. They can only raise the debt limit. So this is the biggest story of the fall. It's going to affect every single major negotiation for months to come if there is some deal to punt on it and a wave until december or something. It's just going to set up another christmas cliff. Christmas cliff the ad christmas. Glad sounds like that sounds like a diving spot or a vacation spot. Christmas cliff would tell us. What is the christmas cliff so almost every year. Somehow we end up with deadlines punted right up into december because that's when lawmakers want to leave for the holidays and so you'll you'll get government. Funding actually expires. you know. On september thirtieth new fiscal year starts on october first. But that's never when the pressure point really is usually lawmakers act to kick the can and they can get kicked to december. Sometimes we go into november and then we go again in december almost every year we go to the first week of december than the second week of december than the third week of december. And then right up by new years or christmas or something like that so december is almost always totally painful and it would surprise nobody in the capital if we were dealing with the debt limit and a crisis like that up in december again so just to summarize the options on the debt ceiling right now the default so far is that schumer has said. We're not doing this. And the fifty votes reconciliation process. Mitch mcconnell you need to provide us with ten votes to solve this mcconnell even before. That decision was made by schumer said. Sorry you guys want to add you guys want to do with three and a half trillion dollar budget. You can also Raise the debt limit. And what you're saying. Is that fifty process reconciliation. It's never even been done before in that process. So they've congress has raised the debt limit through reconciliation before never before have they waived the debt limit and most leaders on capitol hill. Believe that that that would not be allowed that the parliamentarian would say that's not allowed. Jen just to take a step back here all right. We're in august. Everyone income's gone home for recess and the biden administration. Democrats seem to have accomplished a lot with these two tracks. They passed through the senate their infrastructure. Bill they passed the three and a half trillion dollar budget. They punted on the question Very fraught question of the debt ceiling but the hard part really starts now where they've actually have to have to write the legislation for this three and a half trillion dollar budget if gotta somehow maneuver both through the house where there are all sorts of political obstacles. What have we learned this year. Through the voter rama with these back and forth amendments to of smoke out democrats on various sensitive issues through the infrastructure negotiations where policies were in and then and then out and through the bernie sanders putting together this giant budget. Bill one of the big takeaways. And what should people be watching as the sort of act to begins When everyone.

"Of attack down pat one thing that is not in this budget. That seems like it's going to be a big issue. This fall is a debt. Ceiling increase You and your colleague. Caitlin have been breaking news on this issue. I will explain to us what the debt ceiling is and why it wasn't part of the budget resolution or voter alma. And what's likely to happen now. So we have twenty eight trillion dollars in debt as a nation and our waiver on being able to borrow has expired expired on july thirty first so right now the treasury department is just trying to kinda scrap around. Make sure that the money coming in matches the money going out until congress acts and democrats have made a calculated decision to not include the debt limit remedy in the reconciliation process. That they're moving forward with to enact three point five trillion dollar social spending plan Republicans are saying. You have the ability to solve this on your own. You've shown that you can enact major legislation without republican votes. Knock yourself out. We're not gonna help you and so far you know it's just it's a cliche. The classic game of political chicken put it in almost every story about this but it really is who is going to flinch when senate majority leader. Chuck schumer eventually brings the debt limit. Question to the floor are more than forty republicans gonna vote no and sink it and have the headlines be that the nation could default on. Its loans throwing the economy into you. Know a catastrophe and that happened. Because republicans wouldn't band together with democrats to remedy the debt limit in the way that democrats banded with republicans when they were in control. So it's unclear. Who's going to flinch. But i think what doesn't get as much attention. Is that going through reconciliation to remedy the debt limit. You don't have as many options. The two main pass are you can raise the debt limit or you can waive the debt limit and sound super complicated and boring. But if you just wave it you can choose a date sometime in the future and say we don't have to worry about the dem limit until this date in one year or two years or in one month or two months. Whatever date you pick if you raise it you have to choose a number. And that's number is going to be north of twenty eight trillion and that's harder saying you want to raise the ceiling to thirty five trillion or something like that is going to be a much harder vote. It's not guaranteed that you would get somebody like joe manchin to vote on that in the senate. Even somebody like jon tester might not vote in favor of that. So you're whipping operation among democrats to actually set a number and raise the debt ceiling to a specific number is going to be much more difficult. The other downfall of that is that you don't know exactly when that. Number's going to then come haunt you again. Is it going to be right before election day when democrats are trying to regain the majority in some future year. Is it going to actually be really awesome and ruined life for republicans. You just don't know so. It's the setting. A number is is less desirable. The big catch is that most lawmakers think that you have to set a number if you're going through reconciliation and you want Sideline republicans and you want to go it alone. It's never ever been done before that. The debt limit has simply been waived without a number under reconciliation so their.

"Brand of politics has really flourished in recent years. And that's why we see. So many of these amendments popping up and and democrats haven't taken major action on immigration at all and they have the majority so you know there's a there's a lot to exploit their so one other dynamic. I noticed that i thought was interesting. In sort of tests debating skills of each side. Is you know. Sometimes you'd have this Republican senator put forward amendments. That they thought was a very clever. And they'd have this aha moment and the democrats would come right back with Something on a related subject that would Essentially say off. You're calling us hypocrites on issue x. Well try voting on this We're gonna suppose your your hypocrisy on that issue. The one example that i thought it was pretty fascinating was with senator grassley and senator wyden had a a sort of tit for tat. Hypocrisy volley hear me. You'll be shark. What the democrats want to do in their budget grassley got up there and said well. Democrats don't really care about taxing the wealthy because they want to include this State and local tax relief in their budget if my democrat colleagues are genuine in their concern about the wealthy paying too little taxes. Their budget is not the way to do it. And he puts forward this amendment trying to get rid of that vote to support by amendment to impose restrictions on repealing and modifying the salt cap that would result in tax cuts for the wealthy. He does have a point. Salt relief does benefit wealthier taxpayers. Senator from oregon president and colleagues are tax. Bill will be progressive. And then widen came back with an amendment and said you guys really talking about the progressive tax code. Okay if you really believe that. Here's an amendment endorsing progressivity in the in the tax code and of course all the republicans voted against that. Those another similar volley. On defunding the police between senator tub villa local leaders across the country have decided the woke thing to do is cancel their cities police force when senator klobuchar before i came to the senate i saw firsthand the vital role that enforcement officers playing keeping our citizens. Say what's going on in those moments and how How much are they sort of telegraphed in advance or is this just like good smart work on the senate floor in in real time. So they're all pretty good at thinking on their feet and also many of the senators say the same thing over and over so so some of these sound bites are pretty baked into their brains and yeah a lot. It's an unscripted battle in in many cases so obviously if you have to side-by-side amendments you have one that's proposed and you kind of have a counter amendment. You probably thought that through you may be came up with your counter amendment on taxes. Because you the senator kind of anticipated that republicans were going to go down this line of attack. But you know we talked to. Ron wyden all the time. He's the chairman of the finance committee and He is incredibly quick on his toes. An incredibly quick to accused republicans of being hypocrites so on on all kinds of things so that the most recent has been what's going on with the debt limit and he likes to remind everybody that democrats voted with republicans to remedy the debt limit when it was their congress and they were in control and they're in control the white house and that republicans should now vote with with democrats on that. So so yeah. I mean they've got these. You're a hypocrite lines.

Basically he sounded terrible as we rounded out into four a. m. He was sitting there with his mask on. So it was the real deal. It was definitely an illustration of how hard core this whole voter on processes the way you describe these amendments. It sounds like the voter. Rama is not about making legislation but more about making like social media content for ad campaigns. next year. Right so sounds like me on vacation instagram. Yes some of these senators in the minority. Revel in voter obama's and i talked about john kennedy earlier he he says he just he just loves the good rama. I watched almost the whole thing. I i will admit that. I went to bed before two. Am so. i missed the last few hours. But i found it truly fascinating this year or this one just because it did give us some clues about what are going to be difficult votes issues for democrats as they put together this three and a half trillion dollar resolution and i found that the clever amendments on the republican side. And as you point out it's mostly republican amendments. The democrats are just sort of trying to protect their budget resolution. They're not they're not really trying to amend it. But i found the that the clever ones were the narrower ones on policy where they could discover some democrats who felt obligated to break with their party and i just wanted to like go through a a few of the amendments and the kind of votes and sort of breakdown the strategies here so sometimes i noticed. You'll have a first of all. We should point out that there was one senator missing this week republican mike rounds so we didn't really have a fifty fifty senate. We had a fifty forty nine senators. Right okay so a lotta votes. Were either ninety nine to zero or fifty to forty nine. Let's start with the ninety nine to nothing vote. Because i feel like this. This was part of sort of democratic strategy of Well you're going to tell us you know you're gonna put forward an amendment to do x. You want us to vote against it. No way We're all going to vote for it together. So let's start with like the ninety ninety nine to nothing vote and that sort of strategy of just sort of jumping on the bandwagon. Yeah yeah so. One of the first amendment's that got adopted was an amendment by john. Thune who is the senate minority whip and the un sound by version the amendment It sounds pretty good but john thune was was trying to get people to vote for which actually was adopted unanimously was an amendment targeted democrats. Plan to go after dynastic wealth and he basically said that the proposal that the biden administration has put forth to make people pay money basically when a when a farmer business turns over through a family through generations that you'd have to pay taxes on that and the democrats tried to put up a side-by-side amendment and they often do that to try to say. I know you're tempted to vote on this. But let's vote on this other other plan and that didn't really work out so the thune amendment got adopted and i have the quote up here. He said changing this. What hit generations in rural communities and force families to pay off part of the farmer business to pay the new tax and that sounds not good. So people voted in favor of you know and i think democrats kinda learned. When democrats moved to enact the stimulus and march. They had to boat aromas and democrats seemed then like they really didn't want to side with republicans on some of these more gotcha amendments because they want to stick to their principles. This time around. I think they were a little bit resolved to to just kind of shrug them off and say well this is a nonbinding amendment anyway. The amendment ukraine crafted doesn't even do what you say it does so yeah. I'm going to vote in support of that. So definitely what you're saying it was a litmus test for these policies going forward who who in the senate is going to vote with republicans on abortion. That was that was the litmus test and the answer was joe mansion and no other democrats. So that's something that we haven't necessarily tested in several years. That's really interesting. What you're saying is the democrats decided to do a little bit more of the bright. We're not going to be stupid and vote against these. We'll just make it like a ninety nine.

I think he thinks he's a spring chicken. And i'm sure he would tell you as much. Did you see any health emergencies on the senate floor by my clock. This started at eleven fifty two. Am tuesday when they put forward the motion to proceed to the budget to use some of the jargon and it didn't finish until three fifty one a. m. wednesday when the budget passed so this was a senate all nighter which is pretty rare. I assume did you see anyone kinda like the was looking like. They couldn't make it. People were looking exhausted by the time that we rounded into four. am and astonishingly. Some of them chose to do floor speeches. After the fact. I was so confused Just because it was their last opportunity to speak before they before they could leave town so the normal routine is that these lawmakers go and speak to an empty chamber. Even if it's for pm on a regular tuesday but now we're at four am on the last day before august recess and they some of them still stood up and spoke to the c. span cameras solo.

"Vote. A rama the voter rama. I don't know why it was set up like this but when you adopt a budget resolution. It's a free for all of amendments in a totally different way than you would have on a normal bill senator from wyoming. I call up my number of the clerk. Report the amendment by number thirty five number number. We do indeed have a long way to go. Usually the majority will curtail that amendment process on a normal bill and not allow the minority any amendments or allow very few amendments and just basically jam it through a series of procedural votes with the voter rama with adopting the budget resolution. The minority can do as many amendments as they want as long as they're germain which means they have something to do with the bill even if they're not germane you might have to vote to basically swat them down because because they're not relevant to the bill so you still can get your vote that way. So it's this big free for all and the amendments are mostly. They're non-binding so you can come up with pretty much anything you want to put in a campaign attack ad and hold the majority to that vote and you know it's a procedural thing that goes along with the adoption of the budget resolution but it's used more as punishment so the minority especially in the current setup where we have a fifty fifty senate. The budget resolutions are all adopted to unlock reconciliation process and make the gop not matter at all. So republicans use that voter rama opportunity to make life really difficult for their counterparts. Then it's obviously difficult for all of them including republicans especially you know some of these senators who are getting up there in years. That was one of the concerns that we heard this week from senator. John kennedy was that he was saying. This is a real hardship for for the older.

Democrats challenged republicans to a game chicken. It's a cliche. The classic game of political chicken put it in almost every story about this but it really is. They left raising the debt ceiling out of the big three point five trillion dollar social spending package by doing that forcing republicans to vote on raising the debt. And also take the blame if we fall off that but the president and democratic leaders have made clear that they do not want the debt limit to complicate movement of the three point five trillion dollar plan so that package passed without any gop support course and now it's on to the next step and for now. Democrats are looking at increasing the debt ceiling along with sort of abandoned at the end of september. The government runs out of money. That's a whole nother issue. Outside of the debt crisis the government runs out of money. There's a government shutdown so for now.

Technically i suppose the tokyo twenty twenty one olympics are in full swing and i gotta say i watched some of the new three on three court basketball. That is new for this olympics and it was exhilarating. Maybe you're watching. Maybe you're not but for today's good news. I wanted to highlight some good and interesting and hopeful. Things that are happening in the world of sports. I the philippines has won. It's first olympic gold medal after almost a hundred years. Very exciting for the philippines and for weightlifter heidelinde as who won women's weightlifting. You haven't check it out. It's very exciting. And it was clear to see that idol in was completely overcome with emotion. So congratulations to her and to the philippines next. We will change gears to eight nine olympic sport. Beach handball. technically yes. If you are an olympic aficionado you may be thinking to yourself neil. It is kind of an olympic sport. Yes beach handball is played in the youth olympic games but it is not played in these summer olympic games anyway. The norwegian national beach handball team made news recently because they decided not to play in the required bikini bottoms and instead played in bike shorts. Because they're shorts were longer than ten centimeters which is four inches. Not a lot of fabric. Each player on the team was fined. One hundred and seventy five dollars. The norwegian team wanted to call attention to how blatantly sexist lewis's male identifying handball players can wear like shorts t shirts and i would say they succeeded in drawing the world's attention famous musician and rockstar. Pink has officially offered to pay the entirety of the fine and is in full support of this norwegian team now. We all have an additional reason to watch handball. I watched some clips of it while i was researching for today's episode and it looks awesome so keep an eye out for beach handball. And let's hope that in the future people can pretty much just wear whatever is comfortable so long as they aren't wearing something that like really speeds them up or gives them some kind of advantage over the other team regardless they shouldn't be forced to wear skimpy bikinis in the same vein. The german gymnastics team skipped out on wearing bikini cut leotards and has decided to wear full unitards that cover their arms and legs fully. For much the same reason the team wanted to highlight the sexualization of female gymnasts in the sport and wanted to point out that this is a perfectly legal thing for them to wear. It's just outside of the norm. Now it is to see a gymnast wearing a full suit and finally. Let's talk about another new sport at this year's gymnastics skateboarding. I also watched some of this and again. It was awesome in the three winners of the women's street. Skateboarding event might make up. The youngest olympic podium ever to thirteen year olds and a sixteen year old meddled. In this event thirteen seemed super young man.

That is the good news. I've.

"Hey it's kevin fagin here just wanted to tell you about a new show coming out if you enjoyed the dealer. I think you're gonna like. I m rama hosted by jonathan hirsch. The award winning journalist and host of deer franklin jones i am. Rama is about a one of a kind spiritual teacher. One who didn't just teach students buddhism but added a surprising twist encouraging students to learn computer programming. They would get educated and find jobs in the tech industry at a time when some of them would end up. Making big rama would also come under fire from all sides former students angry parents anti-cult groups and journalists but his story is about so much more than the accusations. Lead you to believe i am. Rama tells the story of rama's life from his unlikely beginnings as a teacher to how he became a controversial public figure and ultimately the mysterious events that led to his untimely death. The story is told mostly through the eyes of his students. You'll hear some who loved him and thrived under his guidance and others who found the opposite to be true. Here's a little preview. A short clip from the show some things. You just can't explain you don't know how to explain it. You know it happened to you. It could be a miracle or it could be mirage ultimately. It doesn't matter because either way that thing changed your life. Jim had one of those experiences. My name's jim carello in the early nineties restaurant just north manhattan. He was there to see a spiritual teacher named rama for the first time he came into the room and told everyone there he was going to sit down on a stool. Everybody do your meditation. But this time do it with your eyes open and generally look at me just sort of like have a light gays in my direction jim and the other people. They're focused on their breath is open music star playing and they put on this. What sounded like rock and roll new age music. That was very calm. They lowered the lights. He concentrated on his breathing looked up in the direction of teacher. I mean frederick lens. Who went by the name. Rama and god dammit. If the whole room didn't turn into solid gold and everyone in the golden light it wasn't something he saw. He says he felt it too. And i got a rush of euphoria. That i'd never felt before he said it was like a wall of good and amazing feelings. Just washing through him. Nine almost got a little nauseous because of feeling that way it was very disorient but it also felt amazing. The lights came back on fifteen minutes. Later he remembers started talking but can't remember what it was about. I just remember saying. I'm following this dude for the rest of my life. Because he's got something that no one has this feeling not just the golden light but the belief that a person could transmit a spiritual energy that some say raises your consciousness toward a more enlightened state of being. It's what attracted jim to rama. And it's what kind of changed. His life changed other people to yes. Gold light and movement vibeke movement his face shifting and changing and when he's not disappearing the white light of slick. He's levitating violence pretty cool over time. I've come to know. Many of the people who say rama changed their life and while they stories start much the same way. They don't end up in the same place for some of his students. Rama was and remains nothing. Short of a magical being just said yes. This is pretty much what somebody feels like. He might say this. Nevada feels like one of the two and it was just blissful just beautiful for others. It's more complicated than that. And then i told them the bit about getting the energy. Meditating programming making lots of money giving the money to him he says dude. You're in a pyramid scheme and even others saw a troubled man someone who surrounded by people who adored him was very much alone. I felt a little bit of sorrow. That that that this guy never got it together. I mean you know. I still saw a fractured human being at first for me. The story of rama was the story of curiosity. I spent years studying controversial. American groups even met some of them but rama confounded me history rested somewhere between hagiography and cautionary tale. But for reasons. I didn't expect. It made me question everything i thought i knew. I'm jonathan hirsch from neon home media and smokescreen..

"Was a murder in central Ohio. That many people still don't want to talk about. The man who committed that crime once sat on death row, but now he's on the run. His name is Lester Eubanks.
