"Were reaching an urgent crisis. And you've teamed up with some high visibility chefs on that. Have you not yes. Yes and they are so good because they understand what's at stake in talk to restaurant tours around the country and created a platform really good common sense ideas unfortunately unless you have the senate that bill won't build a pass it but we do have a shot with two races in georgia. So i'm not giving up control over so a lot of people are gonna head down. Georgia do a lot of get out the vote work every vote counted and i think a lot of people are optimistic. That was hard work it can be done so about that about this election. I want you for the benefit of my audience to walk them through what you think. The next couple three weeks are going to look like. I'm not asking you to do a cycle analysis of the president on a concession. That's not necessary but states will certify and then they will be a time in december in which things will be reported from your vantage point based on what you know so far. How would you project that out from my audience and say watch this. Watch that that's how you know we're all safe and everything's going to work out so i do believe joe biden will win. I think each state will begin to do their certifications. Or will do a recount. I believe it will end up exactly where it started with. Joe biden victory It's scan take time. President trump is entitled to his lawsuits. He's entitled to that recount that he's called for in georgia they'll happen and when they're concluded there will be no Leg left to stand on and so he doesn't have to feed. It doesn't have to be nice but it will have to leave the oval office by january twentieth. And i think at some point it will become clear even to him that there are no more avenues for recourse. His lawsuits do not seem to be based in fact or a strong legal analysis. I think they will all fail. Do you have any conversations. Have you had any conversations with your republican colleagues about this situation. Do you expect the dam to break within. Republican ranks anytime soon. Meaning mr president. The verdict is clear for the sake of our country in the sake of stable governance. This process has to begin. I do and i. I read that for example. James langford said that if president president-elect biden isn't reading on foreign intelligence and national security issues by friday that he would intervene and so i do think most republicans are giving president trump. a moment a beat. But it's not gonna last much longer. I've been very disappointed. In republicans inability stand up to president trump and to speak honestly about what they think in what they feel..

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

I think they're starting to believe this garbage because Senator Kirsten gillibrand there against each other. Because Frankenstein's monster always returns to the castle the castle always gets destroyed by the creators castle always gets destroyed by the monster it created, and we're seeing this more and more Kirstin gillibrand Senator of New York, she's the one who tweeted out the future is female and intersectional, which just got off. Just I'd leave the hemisphere future were intersectional, which is just a hierarchy of victimhood according to the left, and it's an ever sliding scale depending upon like those two Hispanic marines. They should theoretically be victims of the white people because white people have white privilege in their Hispanic and we're a racist country, but they're marines. So they're probably not liberal and the other people are liberal. So it's a wash, and they just ignore the whole story. Listen to Kirsten gillibrand start is three clips here. She really gets to. Later, but I wanna give it the proper setup. She was on with van Jones on CNN because presumably the producers at CNN said rating suck what can we do to kill them? I've got it van Jones interviews care Ston gillibrand and she talks about her vision for America. I have a vision for America about what's right in the world. I do believe we should fight for each other's kids as hard as we fight for own. I do believe that we should restore the golden rule and actually care about one another, and I do believe no matter what blocking grow up on. You should have a chance to live up to your goddamn tesla. That means good schools that are public schools in debt free college things that really make opportunity possible. So I have that vision. And so the question is do I do that from a presidential platform or do I do it from the US Senate? And that is the question, I will decide very soon. First of all leave my kids alone. I worry about my kids. You worry about your kids. The problem isn't that we aren't all worried about other people's kids. It's that we're not worried about her own kids enough. It's the biggest crowd..

"Breaking news tonight, President Trump maybe going along with it, but a source tells us he is blaming Zona, a Republican Senator, Jeff flake and Democrats for delaying the confirmation of Brad Kavanagh. Earlier tonight I spoke about this day with New York, democratic Senator Kirsten gillibrand. Senator from the way the day started, would you have ever expected? It would end with an FBI investigation into these allegations? Well, you know, interestingly, I'm not surprised because I think what Dr Blasi Ford accomplished yesterday was really important. She told her truth and she had so much courage and so much determination and was so honest, I mean, you could just see it coming out of her the honesty and integrity of her testimony. And I think it inspired a lot of people and for a lot of women, it was the moment when they were being represented to. She stood for all of us. She stood for millions of women all across this country who have suffered through trauma and then perhaps not listened to and not believed, and she spoke for all of us. So I'm not surprised at the power of the metoo moment is this affecting the fact that senators listened and some of them listen to the degree that they actually now want an FBI investigation. The change in tone though. From the end of yesterday to today, not only from the president, United States, but also Republicans on the committee Senator Lindsey, Graham. I mean, you talked about professor Ford's testimony. Do you think it was just that? Because certainly after judge Cavanaugh testified Republicans were very much behind what what he had to say, how much of it was Dr Ford's actual testimony. How much was perhaps response from women and others today that people calling into Senate offices of emailing in the leg? I think it's both. Actually. I think Dr Ford's testimony was so profound and so inspiring. I think that she showed such courage that people really see her as a hero. Even this morning when I was bringing my son to school, a teacher came up to me in tears, tears because she was so worried like, where is our country going? And what's interesting about this new to moment is that women are taking that fear taking that. Anger and they are speaking out there speaking their own truths and fighting back. And I think it did result as you said in millions of women speaking out calling their members of congress, calling their senators to be heard. Kirchen powers and others on our air. Last night. We're saying, you know, if if professor Ford had come out and. Cried in the way that that judge Kavanagh did and yelled and and raised her voice in the way that he did and not answered questions that the Republicans on the committee of the various in many people may be watching at home would would have viewed her very differently. It's a double standard essentially. Do you believe that? Yes, I do. I think what you saw Dr Ford was it inspiring testimony from the heart. I cried during her testimony. It emotionally moved me. I couldn't even see her face, but every word out of her mouth was he could see it was painful. It was obvious that she was speaking the truth that it was coming from her heart, that it was painful and that she suffered because of how judge cavenaugh treated her in high school. And so there was a huge difference between the way she came to the committee hearing as wanting to helpful wanting to be forthright. There was a righteousness behind her words. I did not see any of that out of judge cavenaugh. There was a huge difference. And is one of the things that this moment is about this. This. A larger moment about this. The fact that there's so much institutional power that these very powerful men have, and then they do not want to let that go. And I think that's why women are not taking this laying down. They are standing up there speaking out, they are speaking their own truce. They are wanting to be heard, and they're not gonna let this moment pass without being heard. You talked about the teacher at your child's school, wondering about where the country is going. People were asking what message? Yesterday's events sentence, arrivers, sexual assault. I'm wondering what message you think today's events sense to them. So last night I was depleted..

"Senator Kirsten gillibrand says the only way for fear hearing is if other witnesses are called who have knowledge of these accusations, the minimum that was dotted with Anita hill isn't even being done here. They had an FBI investigation and not hearing and they had twenty over twenty witnesses to tell their version of events. And so honestly, I don't understand how he could say to the American people he wants a fair hearing. But then not actually be interviewed by the FBI. A FOX's interview is not the same thing.

I again don't know whether this happened or not I find it a little bit curious that she doesn't remember where it happened. She doesn't remember when it happened. But all of a sudden now she for thirty five years, this has been lingering and this has been. In an issue. And again, Senator Feinstein wakes up releasing this letter leaked out just before the vote is ready to be taken. This is not about a woman's supposed sexual harassment.
