"You mean LA, not D.C.. Did I say? I'm a little tired. I've had one hour. And she probably was not next weekend's weekend after. Weekend effort. It's not this coming weekend, it's just 24. What they said. Roberta in Florida, who, I guess, is the female version. Okay. So Steph, I have a mental health condition. I tell people this to try and help and end the stigma and encourage others to do the same. We also tend to be able to tell who else is off. But Herschel Walker is crazy. Yeah. I guess that's a term it's okay if you're a doctor. My aunt Barbara, who recently thought you got eaten by a rat, wants to know why you have a giant ass on your desk. Oh, because that was a TV show. I've got a secret in the secret was I bronze body parts for a living house. That's a long ago. That's a pre spinning. So you actually had to wear underwear for. Yes, you did. Yes, well. 'cause you don't in real life. It's very cold. They put like paper mache on you. Okay. Yeah. Nobody would want to see mine like that. Did you purchase that underwear specifically for that purpose? Oh, who can remember? It was one 11 billion years ago. No, it was. It was between the first time I worked for you in the second time I worked for you. Whatever. All right. Senator Warner on Jody, I was saying to Travis when it came down, I was like, is it always like this? Yes. I've only been gone a week, but I just, it's a lot of crimes right up through last night. The Berman book and all that. All those are old crimes that the statute is run on individual one. That, but these are the new crimes, senator Warner. Okay. Yes. As the chairman of the intelligence committee. And I am very proud of our committee or the last functioning bipartisan committee, I believe, in the whole Congress. The vice chairman and I have asked for a briefing of the damages that could have arisen from mishandling of this information. And I believe it's our congressional duty to have that oversight. Yeah. It went on to say. What's at stake here is the fact that if some of these documents involved human intelligence and that information got out, people's will die. If there were penetration of we don't know that signals intelligence literally years of work could be destroyed. We talk about the enormous advances our intelligence community has made helping our Ukrainian Friends. That comes about because we share intelligence if there's intelligence that has been shared with us by allies. And that is mishandled all of that could be in jeopardy. Yeah. And we were saying, who would put it past Trump to try to help Putin? In Ukraine and elsewhere? However, he could. Of course, return the favor. Illegally installing him in 2016. Okay, among other things, one more. Now, we don't know what's in the stock price. But I think it is incumbent as soon as we get approval. Let me be clear. As soon as we can approve of my understanding is there is some question because of the special master appointment by the judge in Florida, whether they can brief at this point. We need clarification on that from that judge as quickly as possible because it is essential that the intelligent committee leadership at least gets a briefing of the damage assessment. As Glenn kershner has said on this show when it's sexy liberal, it's just, it's just about what Trump always tries to do. Delay delay delay. Justice, but this is also a national security threat. As he just said, it stopping the Justice Department from doing this damage assessment. Yeah. I was going to say specific talking about delay to in that filing yesterday. Trump said, oh, it won't be that big of a delay. It will only take three months. What's three months from now? When we have a new Congress. Republicans could possibly take control of by the way. They've already said, just so you know what you have to look forward to. Would you like some fun facts about Republicans are planning their own January 6th investigations if they regain the house

"6 32 here now in a rookie running back who was expected to be a standout this season for the Washington commanders, was shot yesterday in what police say could have been an attempted carjacking. Running back Brian Robinson junior's in stable condition, he was shot in the leg about 5 30 yesterday afternoon at tenth and 8th streets northeast. That's right near Ben's chili bowl. Robinson was hit in the leg and he's being treated for non life threatening injuries. A gun was recovered near the scene and police are looking at two suspects, both teenagers. One was wearing a dark colored shirt the other wearing a shirt with yellow smiley faces. Robinson was a third round draft pick for the commanders in April, head coach Ron Rivera visited him at the hospital says he's in good spirits. The House and Senate intelligence committees are now awaiting an assessment of the possible national security risks connected to the classified documents stored at former president Trump's home. WTO's Mitchell Miller has today on the hill. Senator Roy blunt is a Republican member of the Senate intelligence committee, who says he has been working on the issue with the panel's chairman, Virginia senator Mark Warner. I got immediately involved with chairman Warner and vice chairman Rubio and said, we need to get a letter out right now to the Justice Department and the director of national intelligence say, if there really is a problem, why haven't you told us about that problem? Blunt speaking on ABC's this week, the director of national intelligence, Avril Haines, has informed lawmakers that her office will assess potential risks related to the documents. Senator Warner has pressed for the committee to see some of the documents, noting that the recent release of the affidavit linked to the search indicates the documents include some highly sensitive intelligence information. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, news. Top experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency are on their way to the zapper Asia nuclear power plant in Ukraine, that facility, which is Europe's largest, has been occupied by Russian forces and run by Ukrainian workers since the early days of the 6 month old war, and it has seen relentless shelling for weeks. Ukraine is alleged that Russia is essentially holding that plant hostage, storing weapons there and launching a tax from around it. Moscow accuses Ukraine of recklessly firing on the facility, neither sides claims can be independently verified. The IAEA has tried for months to get access to that plant. Today is launch day for NASA's giant space launch system rocket at the Orion spacecraft, the agency hopes will return Americans to the moon later this decade. The forecast is 80% favorable for the plan launch time of 8 33 this morning Eastern Time for the Artemis one mission, but that could be delayed. Lightning delayed fueling by about an hour and a now resolved hydrogen leak delayed even further. It important pre launch tests started about two hours later than planned of math suggests that there could be a delay, assistant launch director Jeremy graver says a decision won't come until a planned hold just before 8 a.m.. At this point, it's better to just wait and see where we get to and make that evaluation as we get to that T minus ten minute hold. As a hopes to launch at 8 33 eastern the start of a two hour window. Peter

"And over $5 a pound Yeah and that's not something we can't I'd say that their supply side issues there too as you and I have discussed But those are really outside the range of our Be fair to stables Petroleum products as well Gas Price of gas over $5 gallon Those are items that are supply side They are not the demand side and yet That's right You have a responsibility to try to at least your goal is to remain inflation about 2% or so Right But the supply side of this is a significant part of the entire inflationary demand Fair to say that your focus is on the demand side not the supply side correct That is right That's great So what percent of that inflationary trend What percent of that are you trying to impact with the demand side monetary policy that you have the ability to impact That'd be hard to break it down in that way I would say it this way though Right now our policy is very highly accommodative So we're stimulating We're not restraining demand at all at this point We're encouraging We're trying to get to a place where we're more neutral and then perhaps tight if that's appropriate But it's not political in nature It is economic in nature to say that the inflationary trend that we are seeing are partially from the ability of consumers with cash in their pockets to be able to pay a higher price But second of all it's because of the limitations and the bottlenecks that we find within the supply side of our economy Correct Yes So let's just take food as an example I come from South Dakota where we're cows outnumber people And yet we have producers there I've got on a regular basis talk about the fact that they don't see an increase in what they're receiving for livestock and yet our consumers across the entire country are seeing huge increases in the price of meat And in between them set packers four packers who control over 80% of the market Showing record high profits while consumers pay huge inflated prices That's something which has to be dealt with with policy and not necessarily something that the fed can impact correct That's really a competition policy policy question yes Yeah So do we have the same type of challenges with regard to other items that people consume on a daily basis And by that I mean petroleum products are something that I truly believe that the price rise in petroleum in O 6 O 7 really impacted the ability of people to actually pay their mortgages or pay their rent or for that matter they were going to put a food on the table before they were going to pay a mortgage Do we have a similar type of situation developing here with regard to individuals that are trying to get to work paying a higher price for their gasoline and now they're seeing the possibilities of other things going by the wayside That is right Gas prices are high and those gas prices and food prices are and heating oil prices the kind of things that affect people who are living paycheck to paycheck on a fixed income And not necessarily something that you can do at the fed but nonetheless it does impact inflation and it's something that would probably have to be addressed with the regulatory environment that we have within this country today We can have marginal effects on demand but we really when it comes down to energy and food those are largely importantly influenced by supply side issues Thank you And I would just add this I know that with regard to regulations the fed has been considering whether or not to make permanent adjustments on a separate item to the supplementary leverage ratio or SLR in order to account for a significant flux of cash that consumers have got They're trying to put them in the banks and yet banks have to basically have capital to be able to accept those deposits I would just hope and I would consider that you continue to look at considerations with regard to the adjustments on the SLR so that we actually have the ability to accept those deposits in the future sir We will return to that We want risk based capital to be binding not to leverage ratio We do want to make adjustments We want them to be done in ways that don't reduce the overall binding of the capital requirements on the largest firms That's an important principle but within that we do think there's some things we may be able to do on the SLR that honor that first principle Thank you Thank you mister chairman Senator senator Warner from Virginia is recognized Thanks democratic senator Mark Warner begins his questioning the S&P 500 is now down.

"There would be a report by the fed on its discussion paper relating to digital digital currencies And that's been delayed several times My question to you is when can we expect the feds report And are there reasons for that delay I would think very soon I mean it's certainly in coming weeks And the reasons they're just trying to get it right and trying to find the time to get it right It's been a very busy time as you as you will know Thank you Thank you Thanks for senator Warner Virginia's recognized Republican Mike hippo Good to see wrapping up his questions now Senator Mark Warner Virginia at the Senate banking committee hearing on oversight of the cares act live coverage on poverty The fed's activities particularly during the pandemic which included both extensive use of 13 police facilities and some aggressive bond purchases actually helped stave off or could have been a complete economic meltdown And while we did spend in excess of $5 trillion mostly all in extraordinarily bipartisan way under both president Trump and President Biden on recovery from COVID I think history will treat those actions certain areas excessive but I think net net from historical perspective it'll be well regarded both for the American economy and for the world's economy But I think as we as you indicated share pal you know I think we're seeing our economy come back We will differ on the bipartisan infrastructure plan and maybe even a bit of the build back better But that's part of our job But I have seen since FOMC's November meeting that the fed signaled a shift announcing starting to move back from some of the very aggressive means you've used and announcing a tapering on the pace of bond purchases month by month as the economy continues to strengthen I'd like to get into that a little bit Which factors most influence that decision for a gradual change in course And how long do you think it'll take the fed to gradually wind down these purchases So we actually haven't made a decision on that but I would just say this The most recent data particularly since November of home C meetings show elevated inflation pressures a rapid improvement in many labor market indicators without an accompanying addition of labor supply and also strong spending that really signals growth big significant growth in coming months Remember that every dollar of asset purchases actually adds accommodation to the economy But at this point the economy is very strong and inflationary pressures are high and it is therefore appropriate in my view to consider wrapping up the taper of our asset purchases which we actually announced at the November meeting perhaps a few months sooner And I expect that we will discuss that at our upcoming meeting in a couple of weeks Of course between now and then we will see another labor market report another inflation report And we'll also get a better sense of the new COVID variant as well before that Before we make that decision Let me drill down a little bit I mean clearly I think I was surprised You say you were surprised I think most of us were surprised that coming back in September that we didn't see more folks The labor force I believe that tapering and frankly accelerating it can kind of serve as an insurance policy if we don't see this return and we see these potential over overheating of the economy So I do hope that you will move more aggressively on this tapering I also would like to just touch again and you mentioned some of the new variants with COVID What factors One of the things we've got to maintain is some ability to move quickly and we obviously Congress move very quickly under president Trump Mnuchin The outset of code and hopefully we won't have to come back to those kind of actions from this entity But with these new variants coming coming on board how do the markers you're going to look at the how that might influence fed activity So at this point I think we're all looking at the same thing And we're listening to the experts which are not I'm certainly not one of those but I talk to those people And it's really about transmissibility It's about the ability of the existing vaccines to address any new variant And it's about the severity of the disease once it is contracted And we don't know I think we're going to know what I'm told by experts is it will know quite a bit about those answers within about a month We'll know something though within a week or ten days And then and only then can we make an assessment of what the impact would be on the economy As I pointed out in my testimony for now it's a risk It's a risk to the baseline It's not really baked into our forecast Done on my last 20 od seconds I'm not gonna let get away without at least raising an issue I always raise with up to three young I know German power of race with you as well And that's I think the very smart option that took place again actually under president Trump on investment in CDFIs and minority depository institutions and I want to thank chairman Brown and people like senator crapo and so many others including such a minuchin that we made that investment and you now suck for a younger implementing that we've seen a great take up rate from the ECP program in terms of tier one capital investment into these institutions that hit low and minor low and modern income individuals I guess with this demand exceeding the amount of money we had what else can we do to shore up these institutions and I would love to press both of you maybe you can take this parsley for the record since I've gone over on how we might even be able to look at securitization of some of this city if I debt so that we can again increase the liquidity of these institutions But if you briefly recognizing I've gone over answer that I appreciate it Thank you mister Sherman It was democratic senator Mark There I think that the infusion of funds into CDFIs and MDIs it's historic It's going to make a tremendous difference to their ability to support businesses particularly in minority areas We've seen huge take up of the funds that have been provided It's $4 billion over subscribed We're working through applications and we'll try to make decisions on investments Shortly but it certainly shows that it's a program that has the potential to make an enormous difference to this lending we would be happy to work with you to find ways to make it more effective I'm way over time If you could just say yes you'll work with me two chair pal that would be great Yeah so I'll work with you too Sit around from South Dakota is recognized for 5 minutes You are listening to Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia now Mike rounds Republican of South Dakota beginning press questioning at the Senate banking committee oversight hearing on pandemic relief This is Bloomberg radio Provided stability during a.

"We were then shocked in the middle of the day. Thursday by a competing amendment that was put forward by senator portman even though he had seemed to express support for the wyden amendment. He put forward his own competing amendment jointly with senator warner mark warner a democrat from virginia. My home state and the competing amendment was framed as a fix but actually didn't help at all It basically didn't change the definition of broker at all it had an exemption for minors but the exemption was limited to proof of work mining so stickers proof of stake system wouldn't be included. I eliminated the exemption for software developers. Who are just writing code which sort of blows my mind because that's almost like saying we don't want the first amendment to apply here which is is obviously not something that congress can do even if it wants to and then we learned midday on thursday that the treasury department was lobbying actively against the wyden amendment and in favor of the warner amendment and not only was the treasury department doing itself in later about a report. That secretary yelling herself was making phone. Calls to advocate in favor of the worm and meant but the white house and the biden administration had also jumped in to oppose the widen amendments and to support the warmer amendment. So really for me. What this looks like was an attempt to give democrats in particular korver to vote for an amendment. That would allow them to say. We did something to fix this. Awful crypto tax provision. Even though they weren't actually doing anything to fix the crypto tax provision and then when we would come up to say. Look this amendment. This warmer amendment doesn't do anything to solve the problem. It was the wyden amendment that you were supposed to vote for than they could just say. Oh this is just industry whining about having to make a compromise in not getting everything that wants too bad for you. Everyone has to compromise so that was for the position that we were stuck in in the middle of the day. Thursday your I remember that sequence of things was it was like every time i reopened twitter after going and having a meeting or doing something..

"Laura the link is in the description back to my conversation with kristin smith so as you mentioned it seems that this new version that warner portman version of the amendment would put a thumb on the scales for proof of work systems over proof of stake systems. And i you know upon learning. This felt this seemed logically inconsistent because the democrats have tended to be more on the side of those who expressed concern about the environmental impact of proof of work coins. So do you think it's at the white house doesn't understand the implications of this amendment that they support or do you think that it is that they do wanna favor proof of work over proof of stake. i think this is largely a lack of understanding. About how crypto. Networks work largely. I think if they understood that argument intense They would make me think twice about this with the people at the white house in the treasury department. That are behind. This aren't the ones that are in the leaders on climate issues. These are people that care. Very much about financial surveillance quite frankly They want to have insight into transaction. Stay want to know where individuals money is moving. And i also think that there are a small group of people over there that are worried about the emergence of defy They're worried about the emergence of stable coins. And that you know there there there are probably some near that. Sees as an opportunity to to really go after dylan. I don't think that's universal over there. I think we're just trying to solve the tax compliance problem in. Think dax's should be left out Jerry with with points for my always reminds me that decentralized exchange verb down and that you can't go after these taxes if they're truly decentralised. Yeah this is like the fight you stage link in In crypto is had such miraculous past six to twelve months arrived in the economy in a way that i don't think anybody saw coming in. I think they're scared. Anything on a highly regulated that. This is an opportunity to you know. Prevent it from getting out of hand too quickly in suggest to dry out a kind of what the implications would be for defy essentially this new version of amendment that portman warner version because it does not have that carve out for proof of stake coins And i guess for the developers who right protocols that that's why that's seen as a specially bad for defy because those developers Or the people who validate in the systems would have to report on who their users are. Is that what that would mean an end inquiry. It's impossible for them to do that kind of reporting right. So if those types of regulations imposed they would either have to operate out of leave the united states or just simply shut down and so those are those are not three great options. What's wonderful about the widen llamas to me. Amendment is that you know it's inclusive. It encourages the innovation to stay here in the united states. It encourages you know software developers to have the freedom to do what they what they should be able to do under the first matt. Right and right. They should be able to write code. And it's it's I think very forward-looking on widen and llamas to me to step in and do this. But warner you know. We've we've got some people in the industry that have a good relationship with senator warner on a staff level. They're they're not the easiest to get in touch with a they don't engage. They don't wanna be helpful. We have had loud outreach in the past and for them to come in and do this last minute without consulting anyone is You know really. It's just shocking in. It's not how policy is supposed to be made. But again the the reason. Going warner as he is known as being technologically savvy he is close with the administration and the white house wants somebody to come in and save them. He was her choice. So okay so it seems like you you do maybe give some credence to that hypothesis that the dry for all this comes from treasury. I did see other people on twitter. Hypothesizing that this was going to end up as an attack on the industry. Altogether that i the administration would try to regulate proof of stake and then later attack proof of work through. Es she or Environmental social and governance regulations. What do you think of that theory. You know it's interesting. I saw that as well. It's not about a one two punch right. I mean if you could take out of state that's where a lot of the innovation is going on today and then you know we've already seen the proof of work arguments lay out you know even with senator elizabeth warren in the senate banking committee and not as narrative that has emerged this year In a way that we've never before so you know whether or not i. I am suspect that there is somebody in the white house. That has such a master vision that they are plotting. All of the pieces of crypto and figuring out how to go after them. But i do think there is sense. That this crypto stuff is getting out of control and we need to every opportunity we can to try to wayne back in and so i think it was more opportunistic for them to to try to expand this definition of broker. Because you have to remember. In the original language circulated it's specifically included in the definition of broker decentralized exchanges which again on stolen define and peer to peer. And so so. That's where they're thinking was eventually and we've been able to pull that back a little bit. But but it still not super clear that that minor stickers software developers are excluded and so that's why that's why the the wyden amendment is so important and so here we are. It's it's gonna be a of ensuring on on saturday so you said that there's going to be a vote tomorrow and saturday. White happens today At this point to you have a sense of which amendment is more likely to you know garner the necessary number of votes and also..

"Believe that. Fighting for the right to hope is as american as apple pie. It is so fundamental to fighting for the principle of our democracy. Now what pie dry. How would you describe their rhetoric that the vice president is using. How do you view the task that she set out to accomplish. You know i mean. The rhetoric is as american as apple pie in the sense that everyone wants to claim the patriotic political football. I mean that's part of the game of politics is that you have two major parties and other smaller parties. That are all using some form of patriotic rhetoric. So i don't find that remarkable. I do think that patriotism lands differently with different populations. There have been some sociological studies. That essentially show that for some americans. Patriotism is essentially bundled with anti immigrant sentiment or xenophobia and for other americans. It's not so just saying something is quote american as apple pie. I don't think it's persuading anyone. I guess this just doesn't seem to me to be something that is necessarily going to be a game changer. For people who are not in favor of supporting equal voting rights and. I don't know that it'll be persuasive. Even to her former colleagues in the senate. Yeah i mean i think we definitely heard more forceful languages week from the president. It'll be interesting to see if you know. The vice president gets more forceful her tone as well and look we know the vice president has limited powers but what she can do is not unlike president biden use that bully pool pitcher really underscore the urgency of the moment and the administration's commitment to shoring up voter protections. She talks about not letting you telling voters not to let anybody take their power. But that's really not what they tell me. They wanna hereafter standing hours long lines in a pandemic so besides voting rights. There are other issues on the democrats agenda free school meals for all. tax breaks.

Not always telling the party line. What's your sense of how the vote on. The budget is likely to go while this is what we are calling in advocacy circles the end of the beginning so now the budget came out senator. Sanders had a six trillion dollar budget. Moderate democrats which senator warner and a few others can lead on. Got it down to a three point five trillion dollar budget which is still way more than republicans in especially mitch. Mcconnell will accept so now we get into the really sticky parts of negotiations. You saw some signals for moderate democrats. Really early there signaling.

"Not according to Linked In terms of service is so we're pulling this off and so you know, so it has a little but not not as much as not as much as the other platforms have to contend with so as we go into the Biden era, I'm curious as to what you think about the direction and Tanner of Washington DC's desire to perhaps rain in or regulate the big Tech platforms what path that's going to take because it's not at all clear cut and you've got Ted Cruz Davis is Celine now Joe Biden Senator Warner people with very different political perspectives who seem to share of distrust and anxiety about the platform's but that's where the the Common Ground ends. Right? So so the roughly speaking I'm dead. This is not a no regulation point of view but I am a very strong believer that we've now moved to a multipolar world a China will be building more and more of the technology platforms that matter in the coming years. And actually December. I hope that there's other places like I you know, you know, one of the gray like Investments we have is is incubator called on Twitter first, which is building Tech communities in Europe and in Singapore office. So, you know, like I hope for for more of this but what that means is you don't disable your own player, right? You don't go. Hey, let's try to do that. What you want to do is you want to shape them you want to say look, it's nice out comes May missing information. Here is our social mandate for how we change that so we have more truth than the media ecosystem, you know, those kinds of things are important but like the the classic notion of an in-store break up. I think those are generally speaking going to be actually in fact a counter American health and prosperity. And by the way, I'd say that as my primary thing is an investor as new start. As competing with these large tech companies. This is not like an embodied interest but actually in fact, I think where we have four maybe five tech Giants today, I think, you know five years from now, you'll have text 10 Tech Giants and those competition between those Tech Giants is what creates lots of space for startups to either, you know, get their initial base or to grow and to being the 11th or to be bought by one of them. And so that's part of the reason why I think actually in fact the the antitrust isn't the right thing but figuring out how to contribute the right way to the health of of our society and gloves Society is the right thing. Put two questions here. So first of all when you're talking about going from 5 to 10, are you talking about the other five being in China? And then also what specifically though short of antitrust and breaking things off would be your remedies so so on the 1st actually in fact, if if you're including China, you're like five going to twenty-five. Yeah, right. So it's it's much larger. I was actually just talking about, you know, the the kind of the growth of companies like, you know, Airbnb and others as they as as they establish, you know on the stage and obviously, you know, there's a bunch, you know right now around with Netflix and Salesforce and other kinds of things..

Q&A with Senate hopeful Daniel Gade

"Weeks away. But nearly 38 million voters have already cast their ballots. That includes roughly 1.5 million voters in Virginia, where incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Warner is facing off against Republican challenger Daniel Gate. In a state that's become increasingly blew some of called Gates Campaign a longshot recent polling shows Warner up by almost 16 point. We've had Senator Warner on the show twice this year, but we haven't heard from his opponent yet. And that changes today. Daniel Gate. Welcome to one, eh? It's a pleasure to be on Earth. You thank you so much. And we should note that Daniel was also a professor at American University, which holds the license for our parent station. W AM. You So you're a military veteran and a disability rights activists running for office for the first time. What made you decide to run? Well, you're right. I'm a military veteran. I spent 25 years in the U. S Army and was wounded in combat twice decorated for valor, gave a leg in combat my hip level amputee and then later went on to get a PhD and a master's degree in public policy working in both the Bush and the Trump administration, so I'm a public policy expert, and I consider this race an extension of my military service, in the sense that I've been under oath to the Constitution my whole life, and this is just more service as someone with a little experience in politics. You've been running in part on the idea that you're Ah Washington. Outsider. Why do you see that as an advantage? Well, it's an advantage because you know, I think Virginians are sick of and nationally you see people sick of career politicians who have done little to solve our problems. I'll give you a couple of examples. When Mark Warner took office in 2008, he pledged 2009. He was elected Noh eight, but he pledged to be a budget hawk and back Then the deficit was $12 trillion, and now it's something like $27 Trillion or the debt rather And on issue after issue. There's a history of broken promises here, and even the Washington Post's no friend of Republicans said that he had quote muddled through his time in the Senate with few signature accomplishments. That's from spring of 2019 so This is who the career politicians are, and people are sick of it. They want career servants, and I'm a career servant of the Constitution. And that's the fundamental difference between us. But Republicans have held a majority in the Senate for some time. So how much of that? Can you lay? At Senator Warren Warner's feet. Will remember at the beginning of his time in the Senate. Back in 09, 10 and 11. The Democrats had a super majority in the Senate, not just a majority, but a super majority and and the White House and for the bulk of his time in the Senate, the White House and the Senate have been Held by Democrats, So it's not. It's true that there has been some fiscal indiscipline by Republicans as well. And I'm not in favor of that, either. What? Explain a little bit one example. What approach which you take to fiscal responsibility if elected. Oh, sure, one thing we need and I know a lot of people talk about this, and then they get to Washington. See and forget about it. D C has proven that we need about balanced Budget amendment and it can have an escape hatch for emergencies with, you know, some kind of three quarters majority in both houses to override for a period of time and You can write it so that it's not a suicide pact. But we absolutely must have that. And that means we need to weigh need to take seriously our obligation to our future generations. And that's something that I care deeply about. Do you think there's a political will for that kind of move? No, there's not on Capitol Hill. Of course, there's not, And the reason there's not is because they all are feeding at the same trough, Republicans and Democrats alike. But there's absolutely political will for it on Main Street, and it's a very populist thing, people. That's what people want. People want Washington to spend within its means, just like every state has to and just like every family has to. So if this is not rocket science, so if you're critiquing both Democrats and Republicans for this issue, how would you shift that dynamic if you're elected? Well, The first thing is that we need to elect Republicans who have a spine and we need Teo and we need to work. Of course we need to work cross, but we also need to tie into our core principles and his Republicans. Far too often, We've abandoned our core principles in favor of short term gain. And so that's you know, that's a broad based critique of my party and of end of, frankly, the other party as well. There hasn't been a Republican elected to statewide office in Virginia for more than 10 years, and some of called your Senate run a serious long shot. What makes you think Virginia could shift red again? Well, a couple of things one is you know, in the last quarter, I actually outraised Mark Warner, which was fantastic. And and what we're seeing at the doors on our phone calls and in our polling is that when independence here about me And my bio just my history of service to the country and my qualifications for the office. The fact that I have a PhD in policy they're coming over 2 to 12 to one and part of that is Mark Warner's failures on you Know, he voted against Cove it really for Virginia families. He voted he put in a budget that defunded the police by $50 million in 2002 as governor. And when people discovered that kind of thing, they're like, Wait a second, he says. He's moderate. But in actuality he's not. And so that kind of betrayal is really digging in and people are sick and tired of it. Well as we speak. There's a debate in Congress

"Potomac at 3 10. Virginia Senator Mark Warner and his Republican opponent, Daniel Gate, clashed over topics including policing and Corona virus relief legislation at their second debate yesterday. My opponent appreciate his comments tonight. Repeatedly said wearing masks was a sign of Carrie. I could not disagree with him more that was Senator Warner Gate. A retired Army officer who is now an American University professor, went after Warner's no vote on a GOP Corona virus relief. Bill Warner defended the vote vote, saying that Bill didn't go far enough. The event held at Norfolk State University, also touched on racial disparities and inequities. This's gayed and if you're out there if you happen to be a white supremacist, and you're watching this right now, I don't want your vote. I don't want your money and shame on you for your attitudes and your disrespect to were also at odds over a question about whether police chokeholds should be banned. Something Warner says should happen. Their final debate will be next week in Richmond. Today, Doctors say President Trump is doing well after his corona virus diagnosis and could possibly be discharged as early as tomorrow. But what happens next? Whitehouse and political analyst for U. S News and World Report Ken Walls talk to John Erin this morning about how the president's diagnosis will impact the campaign and the upcoming debates. You can't replace President Trump on the campaign trail. He has such a distinctive figure and his supporters. Look forward to his rallies in his events so much, But in this case, vice President Pence is going to be playing a big role, at least in the immediate future. I think family members they're going to be out there representing the president at his events and so on, So they're going to try to keep the formal campaign going. But without the presence of Donald Trump, which is going to be quite a trick to dio, the other thing is on the next debate. Of course, there's a vice presidential debate coming up. That's what it looks like. It's going to go on as planned, but for the next presidential debate that Really up in the air because we don't know really how that's going to be handled with the president's in person, but also is supposed to be a town hall style meeting. So in one way that might be easier to keep going, because that one Canada versus another dynamic is a bit diminished there because you have a lot of participation of people in the in the room or virtually, and so the virtual element could be enhanced, actually, in the sense that both Biden and Trump could participate that way, so many men Gratifications of this. Another ramification is, of course, how it's perceived. The president is handling the corona virus for himself and for the country. You have one strain of thought that if he gets through this physically, Okay, then his supporters will say, You know, he's a heroic figure. He showed this incredible ability to overcome adversity and so it could help him with his base. But on the other hand, you raised the question of hypocrisy. Whether he is getting treated for something that he was Missing for a lot of people that it wasn't a serious that it turned out to be. And he's using, of course, public health facilities, which the Democrats will say he's undermining the use of those facilities or the government help by trying to undermine Obama care for a lot of people, So there's many, many ramifications.

"Earlier this summer, the National Economic Council head Larry Kudlow stated, And I quote at the moment the story looks very good. We're set for a V shaped recovery. Mr Secretary, would you say that the V shaped recovery is achievable? Is that what it looks like? It's happening to you. I think we are set for a very strong recovery. But let me just say that there are many industries and many small businesses that have been destroyed by this That's why I urged Congress, the house and the Senate to move forward and let us provide help, especially for those hardest hit businesses. I think the point that you just made is one that we need to linger on some more. So I wanted to just raise something here because I feel like the language being coming from you went from this administration is not hitting at that urgency that we see out there right now, many experts that I've talked to you our warning about this case shaped recovery rather than a V shape. Recovery. And if you look at justice, this chart back here What is showing is that when it comes to high wages that a lot of the unemployment has down spat, the employment has bounced back to about minus 0.5%. When it comes to lower wages. We're looking at about negative 15.7% in terms ofthe employment coming back on that front, So it's that inequality. That is something that I'm concerned about. Mr Secretary here is that I understand. That there is Momenta my progress in some parts of it, But I don't feel like that. Inequality is being addressed to a level that we need, Teo. I just read through your testimony. I listen to your opening statements and no place. Are you mentioning the inequality that is happening in our recovery, So I just wanted to ask you again looking at this chart behind me. Does this look like the signs of a healthy recovery to you? Well, I'm not. I'm not familiar with the charge would be more than happy to look at the numbers. Get back to you. But what I would say I am familiar with is the services industries have been particularly hard hit. Many of the service industries do employ people at lower wages. So again, I can't verify the numbers. But I'm not surprised Directionality and again. I just want to assure you the president, the entire administration thinks there is more work to be done. Let's not get lost on different letters of the alphabet. Let's move forward on a bipartisan basis on Areas that we can agree upon, because there are clearly parts of the economy that needs more work when it comes to this inequality that's built into this recovery. What concerns me is that if we don't seriously address it that we could see this pandemic actually exacerbate this evening quality information. We had any quality Well before this pandemic. I think you would agree with that. But what I worry about the trajectory that we're on is something that could actually make America Mohr Unequal than it was before the pandemic. Is that a concern that you have well, it's something we're focused on and let me just say one of the areas we've agreed upon on a bipartisan basis. Share Waters chair in Alaska Is Senator Warner Others. Crepeau is an idea to put $10 billion into CDF high banks that would create $100 billion of lending in areas that have been hardest hit and minorities and other areas so Yet I urged Congress needs to work to move forward because there are areas we need to focus on. And what I just urge you to. T Consider here is as you speak about the economy. As you're talking about the weather in this chamber elsewhere on the media elsewhere is really try to continue to highlight that inequality that is built in there. I think your messaging has been too geared towards long. That is only looking at a certain segment of America and a lot of people in my district. Don't align with that. Don't Your comments are resonating with them because they are experienced a tremendous amount of hurt right now. So I just asked for that continued attention and emphasis on that as we move ahead. Thank you, Mr Secretary. Mr. Chairman, Thank you before going to the second round the ear with a clear of five minute recess..

"Look at. What's been happening another week? In the pandemic another round of unemployment data this week's Labor Department report of initial jobless claims revealed an additional four point four million Americans have newly filed for unemployment benefits. That brings the five week total to well over. Twenty six million people completely erasing job gains for the last decade since the recession four point four million is actually lower than the number from last week which could be a sign that the corona virus impact on the real economy may have hit its peak but the curve differs state by state in New York for example claims. This week were about half of what they were week before in Florida. Though new findings were nearly double while the number of American signing up for unemployment benefits grows states. Like Florida are setting near-term timelines to reopen their economies earlier. This week Georgia governor. Brian Kemp announced his plan to partially reopened his State's economy as soon as tomorrow governors of Ohio Tennessee and Florida as I mentioned have also tested the waters with opening plans. The announcement prompted a backlash from some public health officials. Lawmakers and the President Hears Becky quick the Virginia senator. Mark Warner is here and obviously he's been watching all of this play out. Senator Warner thanks for joining us today. If people are home aren't getting paid can open their businesses. They're getting more and more frustrated with this. How do we handle this? How do we kind of figure out where it's okay to open up again where it's not all? I think two things one clearly people are frustrated. My concern is you reopening should be a priority but it's got to be data driven. I think the president's own recommendations have been you need to see fourteen days of declining cases and my concern is if we send back people and only half the workforce goes back because people were concerned or God forbid they go back and you get another spike in the virus and then you may lose. The confidence of your folks entirely I know is a former governor. I would be having this data driven as possible. The president did ask me to serve on his on his taskforce. And I'm my contribution I hope will be. We need more testing testing testing testing. And the fact that we don't even have a common information data site out there that can say what are all the tests that have been approved. What's in the pipeline? What does the FDA about to approve that might give us all a little more guidance? On what the schedule might look like because if we can do the testing in an efficient way do the contact tracing then. I think we can move. As we've seen the cases come down into a reopening face and just wonder how long before we get some of those things testing ability and and the data ability based on everything you know well the FDA has been in the process of approving both additional swab type tests and the antibody tests. I think they're both proceeding on a parallel track in the bill. That's passed to. Hopefully we'll be past today. There's twenty five billion dollars for testing. That's a remarkable investment and clearly testing has to be coordinated on a national level. The one thing I hope the president would not try to impose similar to I think the mistaken he's approached. Ppi which is every state for themselves simply driving up the cost of this equipment. The testing level has to be coordinated at the national level. The fact that there's already a national information site out there. I've actually started to work with Johns Hopkins University who created the definitive site on tracking the virus. There now trying to create. And I think we'll be going live shortly with the the definitive site on testing. We have that information that will be a great guide to governors and others on reopening senator. Sorry about that having technical issues here today. Let me just ask you though. I were doing the state by state because it's hard to come up with the federal plan when there's so many differences between the states but even within the states there are huge differences. cases obviously are much higher in the cities and congested areas and in states where you have lots rural areas Right outside some of those cities. That may be a big part of the problem. Too Do you. Do you think this needs to go almost by a on a county by county basis or is that problematic? I think we need to look at it. Both state and region-wide. You know my state Virginia very very large state you know. I live up in the greater Washington area. You know you can't just open northern Virginia without dealing with DC and Maryland on the other hand. We've got parts of our state. Southern Virginia South side South West Virginia. Eight or nine hours away. They might have a different reopening schedule. But even some of those rural communities we've seen counties with a dramatic spike so I do think you need flexibility. Here there will be some regional reopenings. But you gotTa have that testing equipment and one of the other things. I hope we can get to. We're also going to try to do in terms of restarting the economy in terms of federal support. Because I've got some different ideas there as well and I want you to explain that to us ways of trying to reach out and help small businesses as well as what we've already seen what we've what we've got right now is we've we've got kind of a barbell approach where we've done a very generous program for the airlines and parts of air cargo and even with the challenges with small businesses five hundred and under we've got the eight weeks of of payroll and a little bit of overhead. We've done frankly nothing for the middle market the so-called mainstream facility. I don't think the take-up rates going to be very great. There's no loan forgiveness. We've got this cliff affect if you're under five hundred you get everything taken care of if you've got seven hundred employees you've got nothing so looking at how our reaction has been with the numbers which. I'm sure we'll see a little bit later this morning. Four or five additional million additional unemployed. Maybe we ought to take a step back since this is probably not going to be v-shaped recovery and look at actually what Europe has done and actually put together a paycheck support program paycheck security program. I've laid out some ideas there and we've got support on this idea ranging from Bernie Sanders on the left to Josh. Holly a very conservative senator from Missouri. On the right and a whole series of kind of opinion pages from left to right the Europeans have only seen a two to four percent increase in unemployment. Because they've had this direct payroll support Our plan would get rid of some of the problems around the P P P program. You'd have to actually show a twenty percent revenue decline. So you wouldn't have some of the abuses taking place we would use the payroll processors to provide direct payroll support for folks up and down the food chain and might be a chance as we look at this covert four package. Then we'll come up in a couple of weeks to step back and say if this is going to continue this level of support for the next few months we may learn from what's happening What better approaches from abroad candidly right now with six trillion dollars that we've already put out before the five hundred billion today when you add into thirteen three fed lending facility. You know there may be a smarter. Way To distribute those resources senator some interesting ideas and ways of refining this We hope you'll come back as we move closer towards Kind of addressing the nest factions package.

"Fifty spec and have a good discussion today with certainly with senator Warner he's went when rich warder digs into something he decides he's going to come up like you did with a dog he worked on it for over a over a year along with representative nineteen others came up with a great bill that's going to help all of North Dakota as we distribute oil tax revenues across state now he's really dig into this legacy fund earnings and and he in a jet pilot the house Majority Leader the committee or taking hearings across the state taking public input because ultimately this is the decision of the people of North Dakota what we wanna utilized or reinvent another deregistered stepping up the mikes and going I will we should have this was there that was there the other user hearing more more of that going on more more ideas and reporters a guy who does his homework he has is take ready before he ever it's a Mike so he actually does and he he listens to people and he gathers their input any he does just a fantastic docile little thing really and in work so hard it for a part time legislators so that's why he's that's why is the leader in the Senate that's the thing we always have to remember to these guys are hiring part time guys it's it's amazing because they obviously have enough work for full time jobs but usually you know when you're in a house or Senate Majority Leader well and to be an effective legislator you are always listing your constituents you're engaging in meeting you can't tell me that so now it is the second somebody tells me all I probably only get about five or ten hours of phone calls in the week only now here at every chance I get or in your your exactly bush in this role exactly like that let's let's talk to Mike on the road about impeachment we're always on your mind today yeah hello yeah I was my question was not one wondering if it's possible like in a Senate trial if the turtle could live up to its name and release overall this process about bringing everybody as witnesses CNN and and MSNBC commentators full model in there to be question the products that I bring in the New York crimes slow roll this thing out and at the end of the Senate could slow roll it is this possible as the trial would go on if you could delay it for a year two years three years was that east of the election and or postpone the upcoming election next year if the trial took longer and then another thing was the purpose of bringing all these people and with the dragon I'm all through the body and just air every little bit dirty laundry that's happened in the last three years bring in all the light and televise that bears the crap out of these people and have video videos asking questions about what they said what they did it catch a mineralized pay this age play the same game the Democrats did and that when they did not you can't remember you play the video right problem and catch the wind right to the Senate under oath play the same game they're gonna just be just be dirty about like what thank you for your socks up that's really going to be one of the great questions that sent Senate leader Mitch McConnell has his wife fast play this device will play this and I I think you're seeing a lot of different variations of that coming out of of people out of Washington and and the political pundits if you watch those folks how long how long we roll this out I think every knows the votes are gonna be party lines both both houses then or you want to get back.

"senator warner" Discussed on Rusted Culture Podcast

"Election infrastructure. In all fifty states the first known breach was in July two thousand sixteen in in Illinois where Russian Cyber Actors Scan State Election Systems. They were in a position to delete or change voter data. The report does say as some progress has been made but the threat is imperfectly. Understood given the level of detail that you have seen. How secure do you think? America's Arcus election actually is will. DHS has upped its game. I'll give them credit there but what we're hearing from Attorney General's secretary states across the country. is they need more help What we're hearing is that there needs to be that paper ballot backup? Who could be against that? What we are hearing is the manipulation? They're using facebook and twitter in the fake. Bought accounts is something that pits American against American. And I just don't get why this president wouldn't be willing to say. Let's make sure that our elections are secure in twenty twenty. We saw it was the Russians last time. But this playbook is now out there and other adversaries Iran and others could use exactly the same tools going forward so in a nutshell folks. Senator Senator Warner has found that Russia did have access in the last election to change votes. And what is what. He's hearing from attorney. Generals and secretary of States dates across this nation is that they need more help. In securing our elections in many states across the nation they need help. So what's funny or I guess you could say. Actually what's not so funny. Is that on the Senate floor Senator Mitch McConnell Moscow Mitch. They Call Moscow Mitch. He stated that one of the reasons he won't allow a vote on securing. Our elections is is that he thinks it would take power away from the states. The same states that are asking for help. I mean it's crazy logic folks but you know when you've got a president that can't acknowledge that we need election security because it would hurt. His pride cried in the last election. I mean it's just insane. It's crazy logic. That Mitch McConnell is using. But that's what my Mitch. McConnell is saying right now that's exactly what he's saying so the other trick that Moscow Mitch McConnell is using is by splitting hairs on. Why he he wouldn't allow a vote on election security because only one Republican in the House voted on the bill and by? Golly they can't allow a vote in a Senate because of that. Never mind the fact that Russia influenced our election folks the biggest point on why we should devoting on election on election security bill in the first place. That that all hasn't sunk in Moscow. Mitch yet folks. He would rather just not vote on a bill. That would hurt trump's pride so when I hear Mitch McConnell when I hear him talk that this is this is what I hear. It's just like a just a bunch of BS..

Bill Gates's top mistake? Letting Google's Android rule the world (The 3:59, Ep. 576)

"The. Welcome to the fifty nine I'm Joanie salesmen, offering. Bill Gates has owned up to his greatest mistake, and it's sitting on the sidelines while Google swept into dominate mobile gates, said that mobile operating systems are really a winner takes all world and Microsoft missed out on four hundred billion market opportunity when Google became the standard non apple phone platform, and it's true. I mean there's just Android in. There's I less, that's it. Where has that left by Chris oft? I mean for a while, you know, even in the PC world, it was, you know, windows and apple those were the two computers that you can really get out there and really missed the boat there when it came to the mobile market. I don't know if they just didn't see it as something viable. Obviously, we all know how the store of windows mobile came and went, but I think they had come in a little bit too late. I think had windows mobile came out, first, we wouldn't be having this conversation, we, it would be, you know, NAR Chai's hog. About how they said Android further at the time or something. Right. I mean well, one of the things that Bill Gates mentioned as a reason why Google that opportunity was because of windows, dominance previous computing era. They were facing a lot of antitrust. Yes stuff. I mean for, for more than a decade of that started to arise antitrust stuff that Google is facing. Right. But yeah, I it's hard to imagine how different the world would look if Microsoft had jumped on that train when it came right and focused, a lot more on mobile seen the potential that I'd had in the same way that apple and Google did. Yeah, it makes you wonder whether or not having duopoly, but having one of the duopoly be different company, if that would make me. It's crazy. The point that he made though about how this is a winner take all ecosystems. It's because, like blackberry was around then also as was windows mobile and Android, but it was weird that it was okay. We're only going to have these to let me know what he's set that but like. In that way, it was so interesting. Next up in the US FCC Commissioner Jeffrey Starks is leading effort to scrub US telecom networks of gear from walleye and others. Like it those that are thought to be a threat to the country's security. This comes as he was operated. Operators are racing toward deploying gear to build the next generation of wildness wireless known as five G a big topic of conversation on five G week, y'all the commerce apartment has blacklisted, while I and several other companies because of these national security concerns, what are your sources telling you about how much of a concern, these companies really are secured. I mean so most of the concern around, always not around like the phones that you can buy yourself about them building the infrastructure and the networks around it a lot of US government officials have basically like stated that, while as too close to the Chinese government for comfort that if they do end up building, our infrastructure that kind of gives a. Pathway for the Chinese government to spy on users using that network. While way has completely denied this at all time, saying that, you know, we are not giving information over the Chinese government. But there's a big, you know, concern that they don't have a choice if they if they the government demanded that data, they would get it from wall wave like based in China. Right. So the FCC Commissioner Commissioner starts his plan goes takes it a bit further than what others have called for where they have others. Have generally just called from don't use alway to build out five G. Yeah. You know going into the future. So Commissioner starts basically wants to go back to three g and four g networks already exists and take it out. The all out that, you know, you would take out like a building lead paint or something as a safety measure. Yeah. Right. We also have a new Bill in the Senate. That's seeking to take on tummies and maybe a little more transparency around how much data's worth what's the story. Yeah, this is from Senator Warner and Senator Holly from Missouri. So it has got bipartisan support. And the idea is, if you're a tech company that has more than one hundred million users, they, you will would be required to tell the users, you know what data you're taking from them, how much you're selling it for him. What you're using who's getting this data? That companies aren't required. I mean Google and Facebook. We'll tell you what data. They're taking from you. But thing about all the settings I have to go through just to see that. And none of them. Tell you how much it's worth, but I can say this from other data sales, one person, specific date is not worth that much, I believe, one company was selling it for every thousand people there location data. It was worth about nine dollars and fifty cents less than a penny. A person the idea is like, when there's millions and billions of people using it like that all compounds like adds up to. No Facebook and Twitter and Google all these internet giants like that's where the network affect. Yeah. Yeah. For these stories, and others check outsing dot com. I'm Joanie salesman. Alfred, thanks for listening.

UK firms 'not prepared' for data breaches

"In the world. Senator Warner. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me earlier this year, you released a paper outlining various possibilities for how congress might be able to step in and do more to ensure that these tech companies aren't making our elections awful and acting irresponsibly with our personal data. In your opinion, what's the most urgent issue in regards US tech companies and social media platforms that can be addressed by congress? I think we need to move past kind of where we've been the last ten years where people in business and politics have been totally enamored around the social media companies in the tech companies and there's or knows me Amazon, Google, Facebook, Twitter, they've all been wonderfully successful stories. But I think starting in two thousand sixteen we. I've seen the kind of dark underbelly of of social media, how in the case of our elections, Russians were able come in Wien in massive ways with fake information with disinformation. And that was on the political context. What we've also seen has been manipulation around stock prices around advertising, click throws, and my effort was to say, particularly with a lot of my peers. My background was in technology. I was in the wireless industry co, founder of Nextel. So I come with a little bit of knowledge. Many, my colleagues have very little knowledge. So what I've tried to do in this paper is to say here, twenty ideas, not all of them good, but I tried to break them into three buckets on how we might think about guardrails. One bucket is around user authentication and data authentication. Should we have some right to know if someone represents themselves on the internet if they are that role person, or should we have a right to know whether we're being. Communicated to buy a human versus a botched should be able to know where post might originate from none of these are solve all issues, but there is that whole question around authentication. Second bucket is around privacy and something I know April. You've been working on for some time and everything from first party consent to the whole. I would argue slightly clunky GDP our approach of our, the privacy protections, and the third bucket are the questions around. Are there pro-competition

"Get rid of a special prosecutor muller would be a bridge too far a red line i'm you heard marco rubio raising concerns us senator lindsey graham and it was it was really a sense that i think the republicans know that this would be something send a wrong message of course democrats have been saying this for a long time and trying to get legislation to protect the special counsel and you heard senator mark warner of virginia he's the top democrat on the invest a intelligence committee that is also running a parallel investigation of the russian interference of the election having really senator warner had some really strong words about that and also had an op ed saying now is the time for congress to really step up and make sure that the special prosecutor is protected and that said i don't know that we'll see any any real legislation passed but i think you're hearing this durians and i think that's a warning shot across the bow to the president don't go down this road that op ed that you referring to my more goerner today's usa today no one is above the law not even the president if you want to read it yourself you can certainly do that mike lewis if there were some piece of legislation that that got momentum behind it what would it be there several different proposals out there to try to protect the muller probe is the one that has gotten the most support i don't think there's any favorite at this point and i and i don't think they're going anywhere at this point i mean you know when jeff flake or lindsey graham or charlie dent or some of these moderate more moderate republicans come out and criticize the president that's sort of lisa mentioned.
