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
Another 4.4 Million; Reopening Georgia; Oil, Oil Everywhere
"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. Tim Thank you for your time today

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.

Of course, Fox News knew about the hush money, payoffs before the election and sat on it. It's like Trump to win the quote, there's been this massive conspiracy to get Trump illegally elected.

"And you know, as as your last panel talked about the Democrats in the Senate, including Senator Warner voted for seven hundred miles actually of order barrier back in two thousand thirteen so we really want to come to an agreement here. The president really wants to come to an agreement here. He is put offers on the table. The responsible thing for the Democrats to do is put a counter off on the table. If you don't like this one Senator Warner seem to suggest maybe there's a way to pay people pay some of these workers now, even if you don't open up the government, not miss another pay period. Would you support some sort of temporary solution like that this week just to keep things going House Republicans actually voted to do just that and the Democrats voted against it? We had a handful of Democrats who joined us on one of our motion to recommit that would do exactly that pay people. Even if the government as close, it's very important that people get paid. I don't think that it makes any sense. I think it's very hard to defend the notion that we're asking people to come to work and not be paid. But at the end of the day, there is a solution here, and the Democrats the rhetoric here is really gotten above and beyond. When the the president's offers rejected even before he stands up to give his speech that tells you something about what they're what their approaches here. What the president offer is that how you would define amnesty. Is that a fair critique from someone? The writer saying the president's offers amnesty. Now, it's not amnesty. What he said, basically has look let's have an extension for three years of these two programs, and let's do that. So that we can come to the table to talk about what's necessary, for broader, immigration reform, it, isn't amnesty. And frankly, it is a really important step forward. But again, I come back to the fact that speaker Pelosi has said that she will be a champion of the dreamers. And so she's willing to play games when she's willing to pull political stunts, but she's not actually willing to come up with solutions that makes it very difficult to come to an agreement here having a permanent solution for the dreamers with a path assistantship any form of that. When does it become an amnesty in your mind? Well, we know look we will have to see what happens we've got to get the government open. We've got to focus on what comes next, but at this point than what I describe is not if you don't think, that's that's amnesty. Right. If you've citizenship, let the president has put forward is not amnesty. What the president has done is say absolutely our first and most important obligation is to secure the border. And the fact that the Democrats are talking about let's have open borders. Let's abolish ice there say they're for border security on some level yet. They're not even willing to as speaker Pelosi said provide one dollar for it. It is purely partisan game she's playing and she had to stop it for the good of the nation. All right. Let me move to some foreign policy issues. Here was the president yesterday on the White House, south lawn. Talking about the potential withdrawal of troops in Syria. Ticklish? Two years. I guess reduced to about ninety nine percent of the territory galloping, we're killing ISIS. Russia ran for Syria. Iraq for a lot of other places at some point. You wanna bring people back home? I know you've met you've been to the White House to talk about your concerns about a two quick of a pull out there. Does that make you feel better? Or does that sound like a president? That's still wants to move a little faster on this than you. Do. I think what's very important recognizes that we have to make sure that we finish the job..

CNN political correspondent. Sara Murray joins me now and Sarah, what is this Russian woman alleged to have done? Well, Jake shift basically being charged because she was part of this scheme allegedly to try to so discord to try to manipulate voters. And you know, we've heard plenty about election meddling in two thousand sixteen, but the Justice department said, this was continuing in the run-up to the midterms. The Justice department charging you're rushing woman Friday with conspiracy for trying to manipulate voters in the twenty eighteen midterms as it cracks down on election meddling beyond special counsel, Robert Muller's investigation Aleida Khushi Nova of Saint Petersburg, Russia allegedly manage the financing for a social media troll agency which sent out these ads and memes that fan division between racial minority groups, political radicals, and disaffected voters. This is former Trump campaign chairman. Paul Manafort was back in a Virginia court for the first time since his conviction in a wheelchair a shock that quieted the courtroom as a judge sent manafort's sentencing date for February eighth Manafort, clad in his green inmate uniform sat with his foot raised off the ground in a sock. His lawyer said Manafort is facing significant health issues related to the terms of his confinement manafort's attorneys pushed for him to be sentenced quickly. A person familiar with manafort's condition said he has experienced. Inflammation related to his diet. Manafort is awaiting sentencing on eight charges of tax fraud and bacon crimes. Judge TSL's said today, ten additional charges that the jury could not agree on. We'll be dropped as he prepares for sentencing. Manafort continues to cooperate with Muller's team meeting with them at least nine times in the past four weeks. Meantime, the man overseeing the Russia probe deputy attorney. General rod Rosenstein is set to speak to congressional leaders next week about reports that he discussed wearing a wire to secretly record, President Trump and efforts to remove Trump from office. The session is slated to take place behind closed doors with Republican and democratic leaders of the house oversight and judiciary committee's cutting out some of the rank and file members that have been most critical of Rosenstein instead of having him here under oath. They're going to have some little game of Patty cake with the committee chairman and the ranking members. This is no way to conduct oversight. Now Rosenstein may be under pressure, but we are told he is not passing that pressure onto Robert Muller. A source of the Justice department says that there is no pressure on Muller to wrap up his probe the day after the mid term elections. So this will continue at least for wild. Jake Lukes bring it into law Jared and carrot skill into the conversation. Laura, let lemme ask you, how significant was this Russian interference campaign? This is pretty remarkable. This is the first criminal case that we have seen having to do with political interference in advance of the twenty eighteen midterms. We've talked about twenty six a lot, but they are still doing this and the Justice department revealed today. Just the kind of extent to which people tried to sow dischord everything from immigration to the NFL kneeling debate. I mean, you can see the ads in Sarah's piece. One of which talks about every deported illegal household saves taxpayers seven.

"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

"Held accountable to reward more than just shareholders. In the top dogs, we have been big believers may have buddy that the companies that perform the best are the ones that pay and treat the rank and file much better than others. So this article resonated with us. So we're thrilled to sit down with her this morning at the new York Stock Exchange to discuss her novel way to reward the stakeholders of the enterprise. Take a look. Senator Warner. These talk about mid money is that they're more than just shareholders. Their stakeholders produced a very book article in the Wall Street Journal about companies should be accountable only shareholders tell us about all right. So you know how American economy worked for decades shoot for centuries. And that was the biggest companies in this country had multiple responsibilities, responsibility to their shareholders to their employees to their customers and to the communities that they were involved in. And it worked right. Everybody got rich coming back to it like a Salesforce to say that, but the vast majority of stock market went up. Productivity goes up and workers do better. We built the great American middle plants, and then what happened is start basically in the nineteen eighties and corporation start shifting over and they said, wait, wait, wait, we have just one single minded focus. Shovel is much money as you can into the. Pockets of the shareholders and forget about the rest of that stuff. And the consequence has been that the shareholders have done really well. The ten percent of America that owns more than eighty percent of all the stock shovel money in there, but workers wages the flattened out. In fact, lately, it looks like hourly wages adjusted for inflation have gone down. No kidding. No kidding. But here's the thing about all of that. It's that it's not even working Wong term for the corporations themselves. We have seen over the past twenty five years extraction of about seven trillion dollars of investment in America's companies. That's not how we build a long term future. So I have a proposal to deal with and my proposal says, let's get a little accountability into the system, and let's get these corporations to charter federally the ones that have more than a billion dollars of sales every year. And let's have a couple of features. I one Switzerland. Please on the board, let the employee selection people's. You've got multiple representation on the board itself. Second one, let's change the compensation structure for the to say that the CEO's will not be permitted to. Choose the price. And then once they juice, the price make a quick sale, make a bazillion dollars and emphasizing the incentives. That's what we've got now for short termism wanna get rid of, okay, so, okay.

This is no new taxes, and I want to be really, really doesn't cost the American taxpayer a single penny to not inside this. It's not anti-business. This is saying to businesses, hey, what you need is you need a little more diversified board and you need CEO's and top executives who are incentivized, not just to think in the next quarter, but to think longer arc about how.

Why do we need legislation when the examples of great stocks that actually embrace the workers are so evident? What is with the other guys? I get it the problem. You've got his.
