What a New Era of Big Government Could Mean for Bitcoin
"Yesterday i was asking the question about whether this bitcoin bull market is at its end and part of what i said felt very important to understand before we really know whether that's the case is if in how. The macro environment has shifted the landscape the inflation narrative has been such a huge part of driving this bitcoin bowls cycle that the unwinding of that the changing of that. Would you would imagine naturally have some consequences for where. Bitcoin crypto fit in the larger world. We've been in a period of waiting of wait to see of wondering if there was going to be a transition. It has felt too many like the economy was heating up in such a way that inflation was naturally going to follow an interest rates. Were going to have to rise. Because of that in consequence the riskiest tech stocks that had the highest valuations have been in retreat for a couple months roughly the same period that bitcoin has been idling or going down. There is however a narrative counterweight that whatever the case in the short term of monetary policy fiscal spending has entered a fundamentally new era. A fundamentally new era in which bitcoin could be more relevant than ever. The potential for that new era is exactly what david morris explored in a recent op. Ed on queen does called covid. Nineteen made biden's big-spending the new normal. This came out just after biden's budget was released and explores some of these questions. President joe biden today unveiled a budget proposal that would increase federal spending to levels not seen since world war two as usual. The new president's proposed budget has already triggered a fierce debate but while we can expect usual. Scrum overspending details. The biden budget is an attempt to push forward and leverage a much broader ideological shift. The coronavirus pandemic has made government spending in program significantly more appealing to americans. It's something of a perfect storm. The budget arrives. After pandemic relief proved hugely popular and seemingly effective long-term rising inequality and other serious social problems have created more space for pro government.

A journalist for herat's and scott lucas adjunct professor at the clinton institute at university college done scott if we could start with you. What did this letter from the democrats say well.

Lincoln's visit to israel and palestine yesterday but also on the wider issues the issues of jerusalem. The issues of what the democrats these crafts would call an israeli occupation of the palestinian west bank and some time of true to negotiations for a palestinian state after those of effectively stalled since two thousand nine.
European MPs Targeted by Deepfake Video Calls
"Someone impersonating a spokesman for imprisoned russian opposition figure alexander navalny conducted zoom meetings with european parliament members. The sessions featured. What the guardian and nl times called a deepfake video call purporting to be volley associate leonid volkov which volkov himself said looked pretty convincing. Speculation about responsibility for the incident has focused on vo van and lexus. Two well-known russian prank callers pranksters and such nuisance. Humorous are known. The incident is of course troubling for coming at a time when navalny is imprisoned and on a life threatening hunger strike and it's worth noting that relatively senior political officials were taken in by the scam but to place it in perspective. This is more shock jock stuff than it is a spore of new and devilish lena. Various approach to disinformation technically.

A lotta times in union elections in place. Do worry that their employers will want to leave the area or lay people off or more employees as many people if they're having to deal with the union Do the cost and that sort of thing.

Amazon had a weird week on Twitter. But the union vote is the big news.
"Are being counted in bessemer alabama. This week from amazon warehouse workers hoping to unionize amazon has fought tooth and nail against the union efforts and also recently against members of congress senators bernie sanders and elizabeth warren criticized. Its treatment of employees amazon's official twitter account went on the attack so did some twitter users claiming they were very happy amazon employees and not all of them were real. Let's dig into all of this and quality assurance the segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story. Jason delray covers amazon for recode. He says this union vote is big no matter what the outcome i also think. If it's a close loss that also would be seen as a positive sign just because amazon. Never had a union in the us that even in that case we'd see other efforts at least inside of amazon facilities in the country. A couple thousand people or more than thousand people voting to unionize at one facility. I mean think that says something especially with all the pressure that management has has put on these workers over the last few weeks. And then of course senators bernie sanders and elizabeth. Warren were criticizing amazon on twitter. For how it treats its employees and we saw amazon. Take what seems to be a priebke. New tack on social media hit-back pretty aggressively so what we saw was executives from dave clark. Who's the ceo of the worldwide consumer business at amazon to the corporate amazon accounts written by pr. People you know being both snarky. You know what. I think many people would say would be inappropriate tone. I reported that that directive to get more aggressive came directly from jeff bezos. After my story kind of exploded you see executives this week. Such as jay carney. He's been on twitter. The last two days responding to both bernie sanders and elizabeth

Senate passes $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill
"The Senate has approved a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package after a strictly party line vote. It's been modified from the House version, so it's being sent back there for approval before heading to President Biden's desk as NPR's Susan Davis reports. Democrats change the House passed bill to make government benefits less generous. They reduced the income thresholds to receive $1400 stimulus checks to $75,000 for individuals and 100 and $50,000 for families. Also reduced extended unemployment benefits from $400 a week to $300 a week and ended the program a month earlier. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said Americans will soon feel the impact of this legislation. We're going to help restore faith in the United States government among the people of our country. The bill is the largest standalone economic stimulus package in American history. Congress has now approved $6 trillion in the last year to confront the Corona virus pandemic. Susan Davis.

Senate holds longest vote in history
"End the senate they have been trying to pass the covid relief bill earlier in the day you might have seen headlines about the fact that the senate took a vote on senator bernie. Sanders is proposal to raise the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. Now that failed all republicans voted against it and incredibly democrats voted against it as well news in its own right but after that they started arguing in the senate amongst themselves. They all started arguing with joe mansion about unemployment benefits and the covert relief. Bill and they argued over that for nine hours ultimately landed somewhere which is very very close to where they started but they had nine hours of fighting about it turns out in that time they never technically gal shut the vote on bernie sanders is minimum wage thing which means accidentally we just had the official longest vote in senate history by mistake for nine hours for no reason. Congratulations as for the pint. Final passage of this bill. We'd been expecting it sometime this weekend with this pointless nine hour delay. It's unclear when we're going to see this thing getting past but watch this space.
Senate rejects Sanders $15 minimum wage hike
"In Needham. Back to Washington for 46, where the effort to raise the minimum wage has had another roadblock. I came back up in the Senate today, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders hoping to get the provisions for that $15 minimum wage back into the cove it relief bill. In his words, Senator Sanders said It was absurd that the Senate parliamentarian told them it can't be done the richest country in the history of the world. We can no longer tolerate millions of our workers being unable to feed their families because they're working for starvation wages. However, the effort did not make it through just 42. Democrats siding with him. The effort inevitably falling short of the 60 votes that was needed to add that to the legislation now, several New England lawmakers actually voted no on this, including both Democratic senators from New Hampshire. That's strange. Shaheen and Maggie Hanson and Main
The Senate Considers Covid-19 Relief This Week
"Senate considers covert relief this week. That's right accounts is the first big legislation of joe biden's presidency. It passed the house this weekend although with no republican support. We have no time to waste if we act now decisively quickly emboli we can finally get ahead of this virus. Democrats want it signed before the latest round unemployment benefits expires in two weeks so now moves to the senate under procedure that would allow it to pass their if necessary with zero republican votes but that procedure does not allow passage of the entire bill which is a higher minimum. Wage is out of it. Npr white house correspondent. Isha roscoe joins us this morning. Hey good morning good morning. What happened to the minimum wage increase. So the bill has been labeled as a budget bill And the reason why democrats went with that is so that they don't need sixty votes to get it passed And so they don't have to worry about a filibuster But the senate parliamentarian says. The minimum wage doesn't count as part of a budget bill. A biden did say. He was disappointed at the parliamentarians ruling. But the white house signalled that it didn't want to go against that ruling of vermont. Vermont senator bernie. Sanders had proposed imposing tax penalties on big companies. That don't raise their minimum wage but our colleague. Susan davis is reporting that senate democrats are abandoning that effort after facing some resistance a stripping out that fifteen dollars minimum wage may actually make the rescue package easier to pass. Given how slim the majority is because some more conservative. Democrats have voiced opposition to that level of hike in the minimum wage of course up progressive democrats have said that raising the minimum wage should be a top priority and that arcane senate rules should not stand in the way okay in any case they are going to stand in the way but the rest of the measure is there one point nine trillion dollars in aid to americans help with covert. How important is this to the president. It's totally an important. Be has really centered. His whole first one hundred days around it. The white house has been pushing hard to get something done What they're stressing that even though it doesn't have republican support in congress polling has found it to be very popular including among republicans. You know biden celebrated the house passage on sunday and urged the senate to act quickly saying if we act quickly and boldly we can finally get ahead of this virus. There is a deadline extended. Federal unemployment benefits expire mid march and senate democrats have pledged to get this done before that so they have two weeks

Democrats to Unveil Up to $3,600 Child Tax Credit as Part of Stimulus Bill
"House committees are now hammering out the details of the nearly $2 Trillion Coburn relief package. Put forward by President Biden. Children are at the center of one of these pieces of the package. And with more on that I'm joined by ABC s Elizabeth Scholesy in Washington. Elizabeth Great to have you with us. As usual. This is expected to be direct cash payments to American families with kids. Hey, yeah, That's right. So great to be with you. This is a new proposals that we put forward today by Democrats in the House Ways and Means Committee, essentially calling for an expansion of the child tax credit, So the breaks out is essentially Asking for $3600 per child under the age of six and $3000 per child between the ages of six and 17 and the Democrats say this is holding true to Biden's promise to expand this chap this child tax credit. And to help alleviate poverty. No, there is research showing that this would help cut child poverty and half That's according to a Columbia University study, and this is part of a broader effort as we know of that nearly $2 trillion covert relief package, but certainly a Democratic priority here that have gotten some Republicans support. We saw similar opportunities will put forward by Senator Mitt Romney last week. So this is an interesting way to get more cash to families, especially lower income families and CBS interview yesterday, the president indicated he He doesn't really want to come off that 1.9 trillion mark, but is willing to negotiate with regard to income eligibility. That's exactly right. Joe Biden is holding true to the demand for $1400 stimulus checks. He says he will not go up go below that dollar amount, but he is willing to negotiate on who gets those checks. Currently, the proposal says, If you get more if you earn more than $75,000, you would start phasing out and you would not qualify their own individual That would be $150,000 per couple. So I didn't sound out open to maybe having that income threshold deal little bit lower. Notably those. Some Democrats are pushing back on that idea. We did hear from Senator Bernie Sanders and said anyone who got a stimulus check under President Trump. Should also get a check under President
Biden Wants Congress To Pass COVID Relief Before Mid-March
"Wasn't it? Biden is pushing for Congress to pass his coronavirus relief package and hopes lawmakers can have it on his desk before mid March. Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders, telling CNN state of the union that the bill will help the ailing economy. We have got to pass that legislation as soon as we possibly can, because at the end of the day we're in the midst of massive income and wealth inequality. The bill will provide relief to small businesses and the hospitality industry, which have both been hit hard by the pandemic.
Biden Wants a $15 Minimum Wage
"President Biden has theirs is facing some reluctance among moderate and conservative Democrats to go along with a package that is very, very expensive. There's another side of this, which is that there's you know, there's a progressive element of the party that wants a lot and once it now and Senator Bernie Sanders is now chairman of the Senate Budget Committee. What impact will that have? I think it's it's having. It's already having an impact. But Bernie is and I talked to him about this for a story earlier this year, he is feeling very much like he wants to be aggressive with this budget reconciliation process, So he and the chairman of the House Budget Committee have have written a A budget reconciliation document that would allow for in the first cut additional $1.9 trillion in deficit spending, just like the president's calling for that's that's an aggressive use of reconciliation to drive up the budget. Deficit, But he also wants to push the boundaries of what might even fit under reconciliation. So he's he very much wants to try to get a minimum wage increase to $15 an hour federally into this recovery package like the president has proposed. That's not something that a lot of people who are well versed in You know, Senate procedure thought possible before this year, But Senator Sanders is really going to push that he's going to make a inarguable unt that if you increase the minimum wage people pay more taxes because they're earning more money and therefore you should consider that something that has to do with the budget and that can survive reconciliations. So his aggressiveness I think will be Actually, you know, Ironically, in important part of how ambitious the Biden agenda can be after losing Tonto, the less ambitious by an agenda in the Democratic primaries in the last presidential election. And just so we understand the term when we say a $15 federal minimum wage. That means that's that is the minimum wage across the land. Every cross lead worker is going to get $15 an hour at least. Yes, the idea right now it's $7.25. It hasn't been raised in a long time. And the proposal is that over the course of just a few years, it would rise to $15 an hour. And that would mean essentially, no one in the country could earn less than $15 an hour for you know whether you live in West Virginia or New York or wherever Do we know if the Republicans that President Biden is negotiating with are prepared to accept a $15 minimum weight? They are not. I think that there is almost no chance that you get Ah, single Republican on that size of a minimum wage increase. They very much cite concerns that it will reduce employment or hurt small business owners. Um, where's Democrats pushed the idea that will help workers and will help the economy overall by giving people more money to spend who are more likely to spend it. Um, but no, I think that If there were to be a compromise package with Republicans, this would be something that's dropped from it. And to be clear, we don't know for sure that 50 Democrats support A minimum wage of $15 an hour in the Senate. There's there's legislation that would do that. That's been introduced in the past, and it does not have 50 Democrats on it. So I think It's a real question if that could pass in the form that they're proposing it. Just to be clear. The $1.9 trillion plan here is Are there any revenue measures associated with it? Is this all going to be funded by borrowing? So at the moment, that's that's what it looks like. It's all gonna be funded by borrowing. Now a group of Democrats in the House and Senate actually would like to offset some of the borrowing by Rolling back some tax cuts temporary tax but cuts that passed in the stimulus legislation last year for corporations so that may be part of the ongoing unfolding debate this week. But in general, the way the Biden team has been looking at, it's too big early legislative packages on the economy. The they've been looking at it as we borrow money in order to save the economy now from its current dire situation, But they will at least partially and perhaps fully pay for the next big package. The infrastructure jobs, clean energy package by raising taxes on businesses in the rich. We need to

I've been volunteering for the Bernie campaign and limited capacity for the last Few months especially the last few weeks and so you know. Take what I say now with a grain of salt per se but with the knowledge that you know I have a position on this I am involved and so there is a degree of bias and yeah let's let's jump in so start with a quote. I don't recall when Bernie actually said it but I think it really informs Were a lot of his foreign policy positions. Come from and he said Guy Name Adolf Hitler One in Election. Nineteen thirty two. He won an election. Fifty million people died as a result that election in world war two including six million Jews. So what I learned as a little kid is that politics is in fact very important And just a little note with that is that Bernie's family did lose. Many relatives in German occupied Poland during the Holocaust. So that you know that really gives somebody a front row seat to what American foreign policy. What war in general is is is all about as a high school High School student. He ran for student body president on a platform that included raising money for Korean War orphans. he came in third in the election but the school took up his cause anyway. He applied for conscientious objector. Status during the Vietnam War As far as I know he is the only prominent politician of ever heard say that Or even say they considered it is application was eventually turned down by which point thankfully he was too old to be drafted and Important that everybody contrast that with President trump getting a deferment for bone spurs or President Clinton famously went to Canada instead of risking Risking being brought into the military in Vietnam. He has been Active in the civil rights movement and Peace Movement for the majority of his life. He attended Dr Martin Luther King's I have a dream speech in nineteen sixty three on the in Washington. he fought against segregated campus housing during his time at the University of Chicago and Chicago and the Chicago Public School System For those who are are Bernie fans if you have seen photographs of him being arrested That was him fighting against segregation in the Chicago. School System His early political career was characterized by several longshot runs for statewide office under the banner of Left Wing Liberty Union party which he also chaired for some time In the Nineteen Seventies Bernie ran for governor twice and said it twice under the party's nomination but he pulled in the single digits in all four races During his seventy two campaign he actually told a group of high school students that the US has committed acts in its war with Vietnam. That were quote. Almost as bad as what? Hitler did which I think is a really profound thing to talk about. Were willing to talk about how bad roar to was but not how bad other roars. Like Vietnam were Lost my spot. He said the North Vietnamese are not my enemy. He told a class. The ninth graders. They're very very poor people. Some of them don't have shoes the rice when they can get it and they have been fighting for the freedom of their country for twenty five years The Herald had reported that students push back against sanders support for amnesty for draft evaders. Saying it wouldn't be fair to the parents of soldiers killed in the fighting in seventy six. He left the Liberty Union Party And it was about a very very significant policy of theirs that they were generally only active during election season which Bernie came down on them hard saying that they needed to be active during at all the time that election season. It couldn't just wait for that time. The party that he used to belong to Liberty Union Party in two thousand sixteen told Vice News that Sanders was quote. Never a socialist that you know that. This party was specifically under the umbrella of socialism of changing the United States over to be a socialist country And that since the party has officially branded Sanders As a work criminal like much of what what they might brand much of the rest of Congress As opposed to seeing that a little bit differently they lump Bernie in with that so. I think that's pretty profound After he was elected in Burlington is city hall office was decorated. With the poster of Eugene debs who a big hero of ours here on the PODCASTS. Who ran for president on the Socialist Party ticket in the nineteen hundred from the nineteen hundred nineteen twenties? The same poster plaque. Whatever it is been hung up in his office in every office is held up through the Senate. He also made a short film. Strip on Eugene debs prior to entering office as part of his work as the director of the American Peoples Stoorikhel Society in Burlington. And just a second here clip. That won't play for you. Guys are in September nineteen eighteen when the court was about to send him to his jail sentence for opposing world. War One the sixty three year. Old deb's fixed his eyes upon the presiding judge and spoke his philosophy.
