"Infant formula is the most regulated food that exists by far, says doctor Stephen a Abrams, a professor at the Dell medical school at the University of Texas at Austin, and the chairman of the American academy of pediatrics committee on nutrition. The reason being that if you leave a component out, the baby can have severe brain damage and I but international brands are also disincentivized from exporting their baby formula to the U.S. by tariffs as high as 17 and a half percent, representative Nancy mace, a South Carolina Republican, is working on a bill that would temporarily waive such tariffs on baby formula products. Representative Abigail spanberger, a Virginia Democrat, agrees that there needs to be some form of tariff reduction. The fastest way to get more formula onto the shelves, at least in the short term, is going to be tariff relief. She told time Monday. Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle, including senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, senator Kirsten gillibrand, Democrat of New York, and spanberger have also urged the Biden administration to consider invoking the defense production act, a law originally passed amid the Korean War that gives presidents broad powers to control domestic industries during emergency situations. Both Biden and former presidents Donald Trump invoked the DPA to speed up production of supplies needed to combat the pandemic. There is ample president for using the DPA to address a crisis in peacetime. Rubio said in a statement last week. But after the current crisis is over and grocery stores are back to being fully stocked with formula, the underlying consolidation issue will remain, as well as the potential for its similar shortages in the future. Addressing that problem would require a major overhaul of wick. The kind that some experts who follow the issue are skeptical will happen any time soon. There's still not an awareness that one of the government's key roles is to structure markets so that you don't have fragile supply chains, says Matt stoller, the director of research at the American economic liberties project, an antitrust advocacy group and the author of Goliath, the hundred year war between monopoly power and democracy. Spanberger says they're also needs to be more transparency about possible shortages. She and a Republican colleague have drafted a bill that would require baby food manufacturers to inform the Food and Drug Administration. If they anticipate shortages moving forward, like manufacturers of other products do already. There are certain requirements on various different types of industries that if they are anticipating supply chain disruptions or shortages that they are to make that known to the FDA, she says, while acknowledging that the proposal wouldn't solve the current shortages. This legislation, unfortunately, won't help us in the here and now, she says. And the more immediate future, Abbott announced on Monday that it had reached a deal with the FDA to resume operations at its plant and starches as soon as within the next two weeks after the plan addresses safety concerns. This won't solve schmeiser's problems overnight, though, Abbott has previously said that once that plant was running again, it would take 6 to 8 weeks for a baby formula from there to return to store shelves..

"senator kirsten gillibrand" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing

"David challenging, the CNN political director, this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Monday, may 9th. As the country awaits a final decision from the Supreme Court on roe versus wade, both parties are starting to mobilize and message around a potential post row world. As you certainly know, the Supreme Court has not yet issued its formal and final decision dealing with the 1973 landmark ruling of roe versus wade, but that leaked draft opinion authored by justice Alito that emerged last week, clearly indicates that the court is poised to perhaps sweepingly overturn that decision that guaranteed abortion rights nationwide for women for nearly the last half century. This now is prompting a national conversation both in terms of the substance and reality for women across the country and for the politics of this very controversial issue, what does a post row world look like? Well, Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, he gave us a little hint of what it could possibly look like and perhaps, at the same time, gave Democrats yet another opportunity to galvanize and mobilize their base around this issue. In an interview with USA Today, Mitch McConnell said that a national ban on abortion. Now I'm talking about legislatively, from the Congress, a national ban on abortion is possible. He was evasive when he was asked questions about, you know, if Republicans do take back the Senate in the November midterm elections, you know, is this something that he would jettison the filibuster for, try to get this through with just a simple majority. His answer to that was, quote, all of this puts the cart before the horse. You obviously doesn't want to get ahead of those November elections. But he went on to say that if the leaked opinion became the final opinion, state and federal legislative bodies certainly could legislate in that area. Quote, so yeah, it's possible. It would depend on where the votes were. This immediately took the issue just from sort of a state by state, blue versus red state kind of battle to a national conversation where a democratic members of Congress, senators are now sort of rallying around and using McConnell's words as a reminder to voters of where Republicans are suggesting they may want to take this issue once roe V wade, should that be the case, is no longer the law of the land. Gavin Newsom, the democratic governor of California, who's up for reelection this year. He started taking on his own party and urging national Democrats to up their game and energy in trying to mobilize around this issue. Here he was last week in Los Angeles. Where the hell's my party? Where's the Democratic Party? Where's the counter offensive? That prompted my colleague Jake tapper to ask senator Kirsten gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who was a guest of his on State of the Union on CNN on Sunday. Where is the democratic counter offensive? We are not giving up. We will never give in and we will keep fighting. And if the American people are paying attention, this issue will also be on the ballot in November. We need to make sure that every single voter understands that the Republican Party and Mitch McConnell does not believe that their daughters that their mothers, that their sisters have rights to make fundamental life and death decisions. Listen to this compilation of four different democratic ads, now running in states such as New Hampshire, North Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin. A woman's fundamental rights are freedoms. Hang in the balance. We don't want politicians making healthcare choices for women. Jessica cisneros is the pro choice candidate who will fight for our healthcare and always protect our right to make our own decisions. People like us won't have access to care and we will die. That was Maggie Hassan, the vulnerable incumbent democratic senator running for reelection in New Hampshire. Sarah got loose key, candidate for the Senate in the democratic primary in Wisconsin, Jessica cisneros and a democratic primary in Texas for the house and nita alum. Also, a democratic primary for Congress from North Carolina. If you didn't listen to Friday's episode about our exclusive CNN polling on this issue, I would urge you to go back and give that illicit, but one key thing to remember here that's going on with the polling. You may ask yourself sort of, why are Republicans more focused on the leak or why are they not out there celebrating that row may be overturned? Well, obviously the reason is because it's a widely unpopular position, two thirds of the country wants to see row in place. So Republicans don't feel sort of celebrating the demise of roe is a politically popular thing to do. However, why then does Mitch McConnell suggest that there may be legislation to occur in a post war world for a national ban on abortion? Why do you hear Republican governors evading questions about what may come next in a post road world? Well, because what we are seeing in our polling is that even though fewer people are happy about the notion of roe being overturned, those people are telling our pollsters that they're more motivated to actually show up and vote in this election season. Not the larger group who actually would be angry if roe was overturned, they're less motivated than the other side to show up and vote in the midterm elections, at least according to our initial poll taken last week. As for those Republican governors, listen to Mississippi governor's Tate Reeves. He would not give a firm yes or no answer on whether birth control may be the next privacy right that the Supreme Court had already ruled on that may be out the window. Here he is with my colleague Jake tapper on CNN State of the Union. So just to be clear, you have no intention of seeking to ban IUDs or plan B that is not what we are focused on at this time. And as we've talked about, there are a bunch of states with trigger laws that would immediately go into effect once row is actually overturned. Michigan has one of those laws, the democratic governor there, Gretchen Whitmer took to the pages of The New York Times op-ed section to issue a call on fellow governor state legislators.

"Delivered a major legislative victory for the me too movement passing a bill in a bipartisan voice vote that will end forced arbitration at companies for victims of sexual assault or harassment Senator Kirsten gillibrand of New York was one of the early sponsors of the bill No longer will survivors of sexual assault or harassment in the workplace come forward and be told that they are legally forbidden to sue their employer because somewhere buried in their employment contracts was this forced arbitration clause The measure phrase victims of workplace sexual harassment or assault to pursue lawsuits in court Joining me is Anthony on CD co chair of the labor and employment law department at proskauer Describe for us the kinds of arbitration clauses that are often an employee's contracts They're sometimes referred to as pre dispute arbitration provisions And what that means is that they are documents that are usually given to employees and sometimes even applicants before they've begun employment and essentially what they say is that any sort of dispute arises or any claims arise that is an employee has a claim against an employer or employer has a claim against the employee They both agree in advance that they will not go to court And that instead they will have their issue or claim resolved by an independent arbitrator Usually from one of the well-known alternate dispute resolution in today's and there are three or four of them that are extremely well known So now what does this new act do So this new act that came out rather suddenly I don't think there was a lot of warning It passed the House and then almost instantaneously passed the Senate in President Biden has already indicated that he will sign it This act would essentially prohibit any such agreements That is pre dispute arbitration agreements That involve either sexual harassment or sexual assault in any of the states So it's a federal law that will essentially lift all of those types of claims That is sexual harassment and sexual assault claims From arbitration and them into court at the option of the employee by the way That's not automatically done It's something the employee will have the option to do It was a bipartisan bill It passed with a voice vote in the Senate The sponsors of the bill say that it's important because workers are vulnerable and the disparity of power and if you have arbitration it's secretive It's not in an open courtroom You can appeal the decision So they say this is a really good thing for workers That's true I have a little bit more of a cynical view of that point of view not necessarily from the people in Congress who voted for it but from the plaintiff's side lawyers who advocate laws like this What they rarely say but which they all are really quite aware of is that juries tend to be more sympathetic to employees Full stop Regardless of what the claim is And juries tend to give higher awards to employees than do arbitrators And because of that many most maybe all plaintiff's lawyers would prefer their cases to be heard by juries because they believe they're more likely to get a higher award What about the allegations that the arbitration clauses are in fine print in legal clauses which employees aren't even aware of So when they're signing they don't know what they're signing I think there's something to that They're sometimes referred to in the laws that Asian contracts meaning that they are rarely negotiated They're rarely specifically called out by the employer there's usually very little if any discussion about them but I would also point out that the next time you go to the dentist the next time you go to your doctor the next time you go and park in many facilities and parking structures around the country you will find that if you have a dispute with any or all of those entities you also have waived your right to go to trial with the jury and you will end up in arbitration I would especially point that out with respect to medical providers I probably find dozens of these arbitration provisions as has everybody listening to this program And they're also has been no discussion about that There's been no there's been no attempt to repeal those And all the same reasons applied Doctors don't want to be brought in front of juries and they would rather and hospitals the same They would rather not have to defend claims like those that arise malpractice claims for example In front of juries they'd rather be in front of arbitrators Coming up next on the Bloomberg law show I'll continue this conversation with Anthony on CD of Pascal We'll talk about possible ramifications of this bill You're listening to Bloomberg The Bella drivers who switch and save with progressive save over $700 on average and those savings add up Imagine what you could buy in.

"All things considered from NPR news on Michelle Martin Democrats in Congress still haven't come to an agreement among themselves on the latest version of the spending plan rolled out by President Biden last week The president had said it was a compromise that all Democrats could support but now with a House vote on the bill coming as soon as Tuesday some Democrats are still pushing to restore some of the programs that were dropped from the bill to appease their more conservative members and reduce the price tag One of those programs was paid family and medical leave Biden's original proposal would have guaranteed workers 12 weeks paid leave to care for a new child or sick family members a benefit some Americans have access to through their employers but which millions do not But with no votes to spare to pass the bill in the Senate and West Virginia democratic senator Joe Manchin opposed the proposal was dropped New York senator Kirsten gillibrand says she is not ready to give up She's been seen lobbying senator mansion in an effort to get paid leave back into the Bill and she's with us now to hopefully tell us more about that Senator welcome thank you for joining us Thank you Can you tell us anything about where things stand Is there any reason to hope that paid leave could get back into the Bill Yes there's still reason to hope I've been talking with Joe Manchin over the weekend Sending him information and data that he'd asked for earlier in the week He has a number of concerns that he wanted to learn more about And I've been able to give him those answers But you know we still have maybe a few more days before this deal is finally finalized and I believe that until the ink is dry that we have more and more time to urge center mansions and look at the economic benefits for the country for families for businesses He was very worried about strengthening social security and one of the best pieces of information I had for him is that when you have paid leave parents in particular are much more likely to go back to work after having a child or adopting a child if they have paid leave In fact there are 40% more likely to go back to work if they have paid leave which means they're buying into social security when they are back at work So if you want to strengthen it best way to do it is make sure you have paid leave And so I was going to ask you about that was this core objection is the overall price tag is it is it his objection to pay leave per se or does he have some kind of is it like the overall price tag that's scaring him It's not the price tag It's more about how you're going to frame the program as one that is self sustaining He likes the idea of it having employer and employee contributions that it is something that pays for itself And that is how we wrote the family act as an earned benefit Initially we've been negotiating with The White House and with senator Manchin for many months on a version of paid leave that would just be funded from the government that would not be a buy in And so he was someone uncomfortable with that as a structure But there's lots of ways to pay for this bill And there's ways to have employer employee involvement and I've begun to offer different versions of that to him I just want to throw some numbers out here for you certainly know this better than anybody in the U.S. because you've been trying to pass legislation on this issue for years But I just want to throw some numbers out there for people who may not be familiar with this The United States is one of 6 countries in the world to not offer any form of national paid leave Globally the average paid maternity leave is 29 weeks And a 174 countries offer at least up to four weeks of paid medical leave that's according to UCLA's world policy analysis Center so the question you know I have for you as somebody who's been involved in this for so long and presumably heard all the arguments why do you think that is Why do you think the United States is such an outlier in this area I think our economy is structured differently than a lot of countries around the globe I think the purpose of pay leave in America will be to make sure all people who want to be working can be working to make sure that families have time to meet the needs of loved ones when they're ill sick dying or having any child And I think there's probably some data that needs to be developed about worldwide views towards women at work some countries offer lots of paid leave because they don't expect women to come back into the workplace for a long time A lot of countries don't expect them to come back into the workplace until they're on year two of having a child or later And in fact some countries don't even have a robust day care program So there is no infrastructure for example for a woman to take three months of leave and then go back to work It's not a simple answer I guess is my response It's not as simple as you think It's not easy to be a woman working in lots of places But the way we want to leave ultimately is for all caregivers And we wanted to be gender neutral We want it for all life events And we want to start at three months because at a minimum that's the right amount of time for an infant If you are a woman who's actually given birth you need time to heal And you need time to be able to if you want a nurse to nurse your child to be able to bond with your child And we want that for both parents because all studies show that children thrive if they have a primary caregiver or a parent Near them in these early months for brain formation and for socialization Just focusing on your point about one of the bills to be gender neutral And in fact around the world there are many countries that offer opportunity to leave as well But just speaking of the gendered aspect of this we know that the pandemic has had a major impact on women's participation in paid work I assume that you talked with your colleagues about this and I just wonder if that's part of the discussion as well Do they seem to see that connection Yes I think 49 Democrats see that extremely vividly It's 5 million women lost their jobs during the pandemic because a parent and more often than not it was mothers had to stay home with children who had to learn remotely or because day care centers were closed And so the disproportionate impact on women because of the failure of a care economy to survive the pandemic And the lack.

Congress Tackles Military Sexual Assault

"And institutional changes in the military that would target the growing problem of sexual violence within the armed forces. Critics and victims say the current practice of reporting sexual assault up the chain of command leads to the little to no justice for the victims and often exacerbates the problem. Defense secretary Austin said that he supports the proposed solution of replacing military chains of command with independent military lawyers. It's a recommendation from the Independent Review Commission on sexual assault and sexual harassment in the military, But I fully support removing the prosecution of sexual assaults and related crimes. From the military chain of command. We are prepared to work with Congress to amend the Uniform Code of Military justice. IRC also recommended the inclusion of others special victims crimes inside this independent prosecution system. To include domestic violence, and I support this as well. Given the strong correlation between these sorts of crimes and the prevalence of sexual assault. The two leading lawmakers on the issue of sexual assault in the military say the proposed changes don't go far enough. New YORK Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in California Congresswoman Jackie Speier have been working with Vanessa Genz family to create I am Vaness AGAIN Act.

Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign

"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to

If they do impeach him in the assembly he will then go on trial in the new york senate where a majority of new york senators have already called on him to resign thus making it seem more than just likely that he would be convicted in the senate and removed from office if the assembly goes ahead and impeach him but again that process has just starting and again.

Cuomo refuses to resign despite calls from top New York Democrats

"Unprecedented political isolation, A defiant New York governor Andrew Cuomo insisted today he would not step down in the wake of sexual harassment allegations. And condemned the expensive coalition of Democrats calling for his resignation as reckless and dangerous Politicians who don't know what single fact. But yet form a conclusion and then opinion Are, in my opinion, reckless and dangerous. My days in the three term Democratic governor had lost the support of almost his stake entire congressional delegation. None of the defections hurt more than those of New York's two United States. Senators, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. And Senator Kirsten Gillibrand due to the multiple credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations. It is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York, the Democratic senators wrote in a joint statement. Governor Cuomo, they said, should resigned. The embattled governor's comments came on the day his party in New York and beyond turned sharply against him following allegations of harassment and sexual misconduct as well as Sweeping criticism of Cuomo for keeping secret how many nursing home residents had died of covert 19 for months. Cuomo's growing list of detractors now covers virtually every region in the state and the political power centers of New York City in Washington. Majority of the Democrats in the state legislature, all but a handful of the state's 29 member congressional delegation of called on him to step down. White House press secretary Jen Psaki today declined to say where they're buying believes Cuomo should resign, she said. Every woman who has come forth about harassment by the New York governor deserves they have her voice heard should be treated with respect and should be able to tell her story. Essence of Democrats had already called on Cuomo to resign this week. But the coalition or critics expanded geographically and politically today to include the likes of New York City progressives, US representative Alexandria of Casio Cortez, leader of the House Democratic Campaign arm, representative Sean Patrick Maloney, Buffalo based U. S. Representative Brian Higgins and a group of Long Island based state lawmakers who had been Cuomo loyalists and New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio joined in that it's not one. It's not too. It's not three. It's not Ford's not fighters. Six women who have come forward is deeply troubling this specific allegation. The governor called an employee it of his someone who he had power over, called them to a private place and then sexually assaulted her. Is absolutely unacceptable. It is disgusting to me, and he can no longer serve as governor. De Blasio and Cuomo have frequently been at odds. Never before has the 63 year old Democratic governor. The son of a New York governor himself been more politically alone. Cuomo today insisted he never touched anyone inappropriately and said again that he's sorry if he ever made anyone uncomfortable. Declined to answer a direct question about whether he's had a consensual romantic relationship with any of the women.

The Mind Financing The Future

"When powerful people use their advantage to engage in new involuntary transfers of wealth safety or freedom from those too weak to defend themselves. The winners are almost always forced to create an idealism as a cover for their siphoning in simpler terms. These idealisms are actually cover stories or bespoke fig leaves which almost exactly fit. The extraction are taking that they are tailored mask once. This is understood. We realized that to test this theory. Each wave of idealism would have to be matched to a highly specific effective confession for an injustice that pervaded the era in which it was found. This concept of idealism as disguising theft is of course an upsetting cognitive shift get is therefore naturally initially difficult to come to see the waves of idealism that characterized each era that we have lived through not as the best of our aspirations for a better world but rather as the photographic negative of the greed of our own ruling classes for example. The idealism of United States competitiveness was everywhere in the nineteen eighties and early to mid Nineteen Ninety S. At that time it seemed to be about the need for all Americans to pull together and get back into fighting shape as a country looking below the surface however it was not really about the need of managers owners and workers to pull together through shared austerity to reinvigorate American industry. Rather it was a false idealism. That instructed organized American Labor to give up hard won gains that were then not matched by comparable sacrifices from the other groups. Once the United States Labor had been sufficiently humbled in attenuated in its power by the Mid Nineteen Ninety S. The drumbeat of patriotic competitiveness gave way to the post National Davos idealism of a world without borders singing the praises of Financial Inclusion Trade Immigration and philanthropy with the Maudlin sediments of nine hundred eighty five. We are the world as its anthem. The purpose of the Post National Movement was not to include those overseas but instead to allow the wealthy of the industrialized world to break the bonds with their fellow citizens of the working class and to access cheaper labor. Pools abroad using far-flung supply chance likewise the idealism of so-called constructive engagement with governments like communist China's would be seen through this lens as the rationalization for ignoring issues of human rights and strategic risk in such a way as to benefit economically in the short-term selling out American interests in the long-term meanwhile back home in the states the techno Utopian perspective that arose dominate. The Bay area of California held. That information just wants to be free and that now. Transparency is king because privacy is dead perversely as you would expect in this theory. This hippie dippy sounding digital vision is exactly what ushered in the surveillance economy as the platforms became not windows but half silvered mirror through which the social media barons learned every intimate detail about their users. These startups turn techno behemoths. Turned the most intimate personal details of our private lives into their proprietary business. Data which was as far from free or transparent as one could possibly imagine the idealism of gender and identity to fits the exact pattern second wave feminism seemed to be about recognizing the intrinsic worth of women in the workforce but it may also be seen as an employer dream to push out the labor supply curve in such a way as to make the previous single breadwinner household require a second income just to keep pace the politics of identity which caught fire in the wake of the twenty ten. Colorado Senate upset are explained largely by economists. Pm Alana's theory. That identity is the cheapest substitute for the Labor Voting Block which demanded far more significant economic concessions. More bizarrely the strange media ritual of pointing the finger of Islamaphobia at anyone who dares ask about a mass murderer in which the killer triumphantly shouts of the hawk. Bar Emits. Bloody and sadistic mayhem may well be about protecting transfer. Payments from oil-rich monarchies while the official admonition to see the Niqab hit job burqa and clitoridectomy predominantly ethnic differences or symbols of female. Liberation is so absurd to go along way towards establishing the need for some theory. Is this to fill the space. The left-leaning idealism of making housing affordable for all that too many bad loans inflated the housing bubble while the right-leaning Ayn Rand Ian Idealism of self regulating markets practiced by Alan Greenspan allowed the banks to privatize gains while socializing the risks losses. The giving pledge to May well be an attempt to keep governments from clawing back unpaid taxes from carefully sheltered fortunes or establishing wealth and asset taxes in a period of radical inequality. In this sense it can be seen as something of a bargain if I promise to screw over my own children for charity. I hope that you will leave me alone and unquestioned to enjoy my vast and carefully sheltered wealth while I'm alive and as we have just seen with the Biden endorsements from Speaker Nancy Pelosi Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and former Senator Hillary Clinton. The metoo movement appears to be less about sexual assault and more about adding a tool for extra-judicial vigilantism which can be wielded selectively or kept sheath according to taste suffice it to say that. Hashtag believe all women has now given way to hash tag believe convenient women so you may ask. Why bring this up now? Well in my opinion what we need now is someone who is not part of any of the official idealisms. Of course that would have sounded quite weird in isolation if I had simply said that we need an anti Utopian to lead us. Wouldn't we want someone envision a dreamer doer hybrid two point the way? No we want someone who is not signed on for any of these horrible anti patriotic charades from either party. Someone who never believed in free trade free markets nationalism housing for all deregulation competitiveness etcetera etcetera. We need someone who is not closed with Jeffrey Epstein who does not possess significant financial relationships abroad. Additionally someone alienated by both the hardline pro-life pro-choice perspectives. Would be perfect for where most Americans are today since the time of Nixon. We've been in an era of predatory idealism with our best impulses used against us from both right and left. It is now time to get back to the hard work of cleaning up from two disastrous generations of failed business people politicians reporters in professors and perhaps most importantly we need to flush our dependence on near totalitarian communist China out of our system before it is too late
