To boost Georgia's Warnock, Biden is in ... Massachusetts

"Days before the Georgia runoff election polls close, President Biden is aiming to help incumbent senator Raphael Warnock be challenger Herschel Walker from hundreds of miles away. To help a candidate in the south, the president went north, which seemed to even mix him up earlier in the day. I'm going to Georgia today to help senator Warren not to George. I'm going to help center Washington doing a major fundraiser in Boston. He first stopped at a union phone bank. This is a guy who needs our help. Telling the IBW Republicans are blasting Warnock for voting with him, 98% of the time. And it's true. I wouldn't tell that in the phone. The president's midterm strategy was to back Democrats from afar. Spokeswoman karine Jean Pierre says it helped beat expectations. And that worked. She says the president wanted to do whatever Warnock needed in his campaign asked for the Boston trip. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

"Going to Georgia today to help senator Warren, not to George. I'm going to help someone who doesn't do it a major fundraiser in Boston. For the next and continued Senate candidate and senator. Okay. I mean, no one tell him that he's going to the wrong state. Let's just let him go to let's let him go to the wrong state and waste his time there. I mean, imagine working for him. Can you imagine? And just probably saying to yourself that this guy is somehow the president of the United States, I think I would be like, I can't believe that this is my life. I can't believe that this is my job. I can't believe that this man who doesn't know where he's going at any given time doesn't know his name. Reads things like Endo quote repeat the line on prompter. So this guy somehow the president of the United States and then we wonder why everything is such a mess. Such a mess. And we're going to talk a little bit about that next hour at the top with my friend Carol Roth. She is the author of the war on small business. Love the book. It's a really smart book. And it basically just talks about how the small got crushed during COVID, which is a theme that we've been talking about with COVID. But how they got crushed and how the big got bigger. You got like the walmarts and stuff, somehow they were deemed essential because they've got lobbyists that they're rich. They're tied to all these important people, the elites, and you've got like mom and pop shops that got crushed. Small businesses that got crushed. So we're going to talk to her about what's going on with the economy as a result of COVID. And then also this new warning from the IRS that Americans making over the $600 threshold to report Venmo and PayPal payments, payments, these gig economy, people, and we are told that the IRS that this new law, the inflation reduction act, all these new IRS officials, I think 87,000 something of them that they were going to go after the rich. Don't you worry hardworking Americans. We're going after the billionaires as well, we were told. Yeah, not the case. Turns out they're going after people with a $600 threshold. Making money and getting payments on things like Venmo and PayPal and remember too, when they pass the inflation inflation reduction act that we were told that it was supposed to reduce inflation. And then everyone was like, LOL just kidding. It's a climate Bill. So they lied about that too, which is not surprising because they've essentially just lied to us about everything. A bunch of big wires. But anyway, so we're going to talk about that about Carol Roth, her thoughts on that. And also, they're supposed to, they're supposed to keep track of their money, but then we've got The Pentagon, can't keep track of their money. They can't account for

"Cost for nothing. Now, Martin compared stablecoins to Chinese payment platforms like AliPay. He described them as close cousins, because with those platforms, the same thing. The service has to hold the equivalent balance of one in a bank account with the Central Bank. So stablecoins could do the same thing the same way. Now that is a bit of a departure from the position that the fed took in February where they argued stablecoins are unlikely to be a part of the future of payments. Martin said basically existing forms of digital money were sufficient and could be improved upon by issuing tokenized deposits. In FTX related news, the democratic senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, spoke out. In a Wall Street Journal, op-ed piece. She attempted to draw some link between the fall of FTX and how it could cause the U.S. financial system to collapse. A known opponent of the industry Warren reinforced her negative stance in the wake of the exchanges collapse. Pro crypto folks tend to think that the path of crypto is going to be a bit rocky, sure. But ultimately, we'll end up benefiting mankind greatly. Warren doesn't see things that way. She said the patho crypto starts off promising exciting rewards, but will end in quote crippling losses. She compared crypto to subprime mortgages, credit default swaps and penny stocks. But this really just shows me that the senator is ill informed where crypto is concerned. Because while there's certainly room for regulation, especially in the centralized exchange space, DeFi just works differently. The same regulatory approach won't work. Which, to be honest, none of this is surprising. I just don't trust the same people that got us into the current mess we're in. I certainly don't trust them how to figure out how to get out of it. And I damn sure don't trust them to have clue one about what works and what doesn't work for the U.S. economy. Much less this industry. Now, frankly, her position completely ignores that success comes after many failures. It's not like the old way of doing things is working. Traditional finance is still broken, as is evidenced by the housing crisis of 2008. And she was serving as a senator when it happened. So she was in charge. If traditional finance was working, there would be no need for crypto. Just saying. At any rate, she wasn't done there. In addition to her WSJ piece, Warren and democratic senator Sheldon whitehouse sent a letter to U.S. attorney general Merrick Garland and assistant attorney general Kenneth polite. What they want is for Garland and polite to launch an investigation into FTX demise. The words they used were most scrutiny. And as justification for the investigation, they cite the damage done by FTX to related companies like genesis and BlockFi. And they did call Sam bankman fried out for his role in things. Including his things are fine tweet. And I am in the rare position of agreeing with senator Warren. In this case, because in the letter, Sam's executive team was described as quote inexperienced and unsophisticated. Quote, the fall of FTX was not a simply a result of sloppy business and management practices. But rather, appears to have been caused by intentional and fraudulent tactics employed by mister beckman fried and other FTX executives to enrich themselves. We urge the department to center these flesh and blood victims as it investigates, and if it deems necessary, prosecute the individuals responsible for their harm. Now you can see that they're coming for Sam. And I don't feel bad for him by any means, but they are. Think about how the lawyers for FTX hung him out to dry yesterday during the bankruptcies inaugural meeting. And now, they're going after Sam pretty hard. Meanwhile, Sam's writing letters of his own. Instead of going to U.S. officials, however, this most recent letter was sent to the FTX team. And he apologizes. Again, in a letter dated yesterday, Sam breaks down the reasons for FTX liquidity crisis, as well as the bankruptcy. Now he confirmed most of what the media has put out there. That said, placing blame on the economy, SPF cited crypto winner as one of the leading factors reducing the value of FTX assets. He totaled up the damage of November's run on the bank. He said that that took the exchanges collateral down to roughly $9 billion with roughly 8 billion in liabilities. He said quote, I never intended this to happen. I did not realize the full extent of the margin position nor did I realize the magnitude of the risk posed by a hyper correlated crash. So he describes his failure as one of oversight, saying that he should have shown more skepticism of large margin positions. He said that they should have had controls in place to monitor and simulate things like crashes and bank runs. And in the letter, he regrets having taken FTX into bankruptcy. He said quote, maybe there's still a chance to save the company. I believe that there are billions of dollars of genuine interest from new investors that could go into making customers whole. But I can't promise you that anything will happen because it's not my choice. Yeah, I don't see that happening, Sam. I just don't see it happening. And that's going to do it for us tonight. I want to thank you, my listeners, because when you stop listening, I will stop talking. We'll see you tomorrow night.

"Here, encrypted, it's 10 p.m. Pacific time, my name is nicodemus and welcome back to the crypto overnighter, where we take a nightly look at the crypto NFT and metaverse space, and keep in mind nothing in this show should ever be considered financial advice. Here we are, middle of the week again, it's Wednesday, November 23rd, 2022. Let's get to work. And I think I'm going to continue my pattern of other news first and then we'll get into the craziness that is the FTX saga. The bank of Japan has yet to decide whether or not they will be issuing a Central Bank digital currency. Now if you've listened to this show before, you know my stance on CBC's. They rob the customer of their privacy. They're robbed a customer of their control because the Central Bank can block or even reverse transactions, and we're going to be talking about stablecoins versus CDC's here in a bit. And while I'm not a big fan of CDC's, the bank of Japan is still experimenting with a digital yen. And so it came to pass that Japan's Central Bank and announced their partnership with three mega banks, as well as a number of regional banks. This partnership is to conduct a CD BC issuance pilot project. Which means that the bank of Japan will be working with major banks and other financial institutions to detect end resolve problems related to customer deposits, as well as withdrawals from bank accounts. And this is the tricky one I think. Because the pilot will also be testing the offline capability of Japan's potential CDC. This means payments with no Internet, just like the old days, which has been one of the biggest stumbling blocks for nations wanting to adopt a CDC. Now, Japan's central bankers are planning on continuing with CDC experimentation for the next two years. They expect to make a decision on whether to issue a CDC by 2026. This pilot project is expected to start in spring of next year. Now let's go from Asia to the Americas because El Salvador has a new bill to raise $1 billion and put that money into building Bitcoin city. For a while, after El Salvador decided to make Bitcoin legal tender, but Kelly has taken quite a bit of heat regarding that decision. That said, that heat has since cooled off somewhat. Perhaps because the entire crypto industry is freezing in the depths of winter. So pointing out how it just doesn't make sense. Salvador has not been just marking time, apparently. I saw a recent announcement that bukele's government plans to buy a Bitcoin a day. In the meantime, El Salvador's minister of the economy, Maria Luisa, Heron breve, announced a bill that confirms the plan to sell bonds and build a Bitcoin city. That's still a go. Now the idea of these volcano bonds as they're called or Bitcoin bonds, it was an interesting one. Just the kind of idea that a bull market produces. Introduced last year, this plan would see roughly $1 billion in bonds issued. Half of the proceeds of that bond sale would go to the creation of a city at the base of the cultural volcano. Now the intent of that is to use the natural hydrothermal energy of the volcano to generate electricity. The other half of the money would be invested directly in Bitcoin. And this project has been delayed several times. It was supposed to take off back in March. And then in September, it was put off due to what they called security concerns. As it stands, this bill could see legislative approval before Christmas. Bit panda announced today that they have a crypto custody license courtesy of the German financial authority, BaFin. Now, the Austrian crypto exchange can legally market itself to the German people. Bit panda also gets to say that they are the first retail exchange from Europe to have done so. Bit panda has gone on something of a campaign kind of like what binance has done in the past. Going from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, adding to the list of countries they could do businesses by acquiring local licenses. That list now includes Austria, of course. The UK, Italy, the Czech Republic, Spain, Sweden, and France. Now bit panda isn't the first ones to get this crypto custody license. Coinbase, Kappa lindo, ten Guinea, and up fest have all gotten the license. But their geared towards institutional investors. And while coinbase is a retail platform, they're from the U.S., not Europe. And so that's why bit panda gets to be the first European player to provide retail crypto services in Germany. Eric demuth is a bit panda's CEO, and he congratulated the whole team saying it was the result of many months of work. He also said that this is an opportunity for bit panda to prove that it's a trustworthy custodian for people's crypto assets. He said quote, we can and will prove that we mean business when it comes to bit panda making customer safety, our top priority. Acquiring licenses might be difficult in and of itself, but we are absolutely committed to continuing on this path because it is the only right thing to do. In other exchange related news, okay X released their proof of reserves page. And it comes with instructions on how to carry out your own audit of their reserves. Proof of reserves being an idea that has gained some traction recently. Since the collapse of FTX, the idea of being that it would show you how healthy an exchange or some other custodian is based on their assets versus their debits. And in their announcement, okay, X said that there are two options for viewing the audit of the exchanges reserves. One is a current summary of the exchange reserves and its liability as far as Bitcoin Ethereum and tether go. At the time of writing, their reserve summary says that they have 102% of the Bitcoin needed to cover all customer withdrawals. Same story with Ethereum, 102% of what they would need. Meanwhile, they have 101% of the tether needed to make investors whole. Now that's their first option. The second is something called view my audit. This lets you as a specific user, you can log in and view a snapshot of your balances stored on okx. These totals will equal those found on the asset overview page in the app. That is, unless the user has taken out margin loans. Lennox lie is okay X is director of financial markets. And it's their view that this proof of reserve page will bring needed transparency to crypto market. Quote, our new proof of reserves page and self audit feature give users the ability to verify that their assets are 100% backed. Third party audits are also being conducted to provide additional reassurance on top of this. We believe that a far greater degree of transparency needs to be brought to our industry to allow us to build back stronger after recent events. Now, bringing things back to the United States, a central banker was caught standing up for stablecoins, which is shocking, right? Antoine Martin is a financial stability adviser at the Federal Reserve bank of New York. He was at an event in London on Tuesday when he said quote, instead of issuing a retail CDC, central banks could support stablecoins by allowing them to be backed one for one with balances in a Central Bank account. Now the event was held at the Gilmore center policy forum at Warwick business school in London. And he favorably compared stablecoins to CDC's, saying quote, adapting our regulatory and legislative environment to support stablecoins is already a formidable task. But it is probably easier than managing a CDC for retail use. Especially as the private sector currently provides all retail digital means of payments on legacy technology. That's been one of my arguments all along. Why are we reinventing the wheel? You have private organizations willing to do the work to provide a working product to the public without great additional expense. Can you imagine how much it's going to cost to stand up a CDC? These companies are willing to absorb that

"Innovation versus these are the beautiful things that politicians and our government officials make mountains out of these mill hills. It's a mountain inside crypto. It is a molehill in the greater financial markets. And that really is, I mean, people were absolutely dismantled. The Ben you look at the 2008 housing crisis. Yeah, not a comparison. Right. For sure. These things happen a lot in every industry. And it's really, really bad. I saw that Elizabeth Warren did not lose this opportunity. Never let a crisis go to waste. She won't let it go to waste. This is an opportunity for her to really say, let's just regulate the heck out of everything. So she's trying to push on a new crypto Bill. But at the same time, you've got Shaw Brown saying, hey, wait a minute. Not so fast. What was the insight to her position other than it's Elizabeth Warren and she just gets into it. She really wants that she really wants the SEC to just very strongly regulate. So she's all for the full compliance under SEC in turns of what we might see around tokens right now. So all that. Yeah, I see. Okay. So with that being the case, security tokens, because this is something that people have been talking about, I kind of think this is where we're going guys is that, you know, whether this is the short term or the long term. And when I say long term less than three years, probably because I think the next present and also will play into this in a big way. Because remember, now we've got the major financial institutions at the gate, the Barbarians truly are at the gate of what was once I felt like a very strong and resilient defender of democratizing our own financial futures. Now I feel like we have stepped into the zone and created an opening to essentially like the bad guys in. Yeah, that's true. Actually, senator Warren said, it was an open question whether the SEC should be the primary regulator. Yeah. So she's commenting on, you know, needing additional legislation from Congress. Because she really wants to just. This was an article. You've got a whole political party here that has always always has pockets of the big financial companies regardless of whether it's crypto company or if it's JPMorgan safe. He says dinging the Republicans and then also hard to legislate to do anything. That's why we rely on regulators so often.

"Talking about the concern about the Federal Reserve's actions with inflations in terms of what they would like to see put into place that could crimp inflation more significantly. Well, what's interesting about this letter from the progressive leases that it was 15 days before midterm election where what is the number one issue poll after poll? It's the economy and then right behind it is inflation. So you have this pressure on lawmakers across the board about to deal with rising consumer prices and this is what the struggle is and why people may go out and vote and why many are saying the polls are closing and they're potentially could be this red wave. At the same time, you asked about a cohesive message. I don't think it's cohesive in terms of how the Democrats are approaching the economy ahead of the midterm elections. You had the likes of sherrod Brown, of course he's the chair of the Senate financing committee, so he's the one that has to overlook what the fed is doing, writing this letter to the fed on the heels as well as senator Bernie Sanders. Senator Warren over the past couple of months talking about the fed. Are they going too fast? They have to keep in mind the unemployment, but it is by and large the Democrats using the fed is a scapegoat, not yet. AMH, down in Washington, Anne Marie, thank you. Got to talk about two things with regards to this letter from the Senate banking committee chairs, Jared Brown. The optics and the content. On the content, there will be many people that believe he has a point, including the Wall Street economist that come on this program and have flagged exactly what he's saying, which is the fed's actions do not address some of the main drivers of inflation. Then you've got the optics. For all the complaints about the former administration about the way they dealt with this Federal Reserve. If this pushback grows from the other party, Dan in Washington, D.C., then they're both playing the same game. And this Federal Reserve, I think, is finding itself in a very, very sticky spot. When I saw these comments yesterday, the first thing I thought of and I mentioned this earlier this morning with the comments from chairman Powell and Jackson hole at the end of August. When the chairman comes out and effectively tells everyone, doesn't even whisper it, but what we're going to do is cause some pain. But if we don't, this greater pain for not dealing with it. So ultimately, what they're telling you and it's in their projections is that the objective is to get unemployment up. That's part of the goal to get unemployment up to get inflation down. And we said repeatedly on this show, it's going to be very, very difficult to convince people in Washington and across this country that hire unemployment is a price worth paying to get inflation down. And this is going to be a very difficult thing because how does fed

"You're listening to Bloomberg opinion. I'm vannie Quinn. Let's get down to the inflation reduction act, a 1% tax on stock buybacks sounds small, but it might be deceptively mighty. Jared dillian joins me. So Jared, you did the math, as did the government by your account, it will raise according to 2021 buybacks about 8 and a half $1 billion in revenue. It's not nothing government calculations suggesting 74 billion over ten years. What's the bigger picture here though? Well, the bigger picture here is that what the government is trying to do is nudge CFOs into paying dividends instead of doing buybacks. And I think this has been a goal for a while. If you look at the dividend yield of the S&P in 1990, it was 4% and the dividend yield of the S&P today is one and a half percent and basically what happened was CFOs got smart and they figured out that we had double taxation of that income. And they started doing returning cash to shareholders in a more efficient way. So how do we think of buybacks? Because on the one hand, if you think of it from a corporate point of view or an investor point of view, you have one opinion. On the other hand, if you're thinking in terms of redistribution of wealth, then you've got pension funds and retirement funds that like the buybacks, but people like senator Warren and senator Sanders that lows buybacks because they don't do anything actually for a company's employees or consumers. So how are we meant to think of them? Well, you know, the way I think of it is buybacks kind of have a bad reputation. And just to be clear, I don't like buybacks either kind of for different reasons. But if you pay dividends instead of buybacks, the managers and directors and officers are still going to get dividends because they own a lot of stock. So if you're returning cash to shareholders, you're necessarily returning cash to all shareholders, including the largest shareholders. The pension funds and people like that. Yes, but also management. If a company is already spending plenty on investment, so the cash can go there. So they say a company decides not to do a buyback because of this tax. They're already spending plenty on investment. Boosting worker pay isn't an option. What's better than sit on more cash or do a buyback anyway, even with the 1% tax? Well, what's better is to pay a dividend, even though they're double taxed. And the reason you want to do that is because if a corporation doesn't have any projects that are worthy of investment, then they should return that cash to shareholders somehow. So if buybacks are being taxed, even at a small rate, you should return it in the form of dividends. Why? Well, I mean, it's better than it's better than keeping the cash at the corporate level. Basically, shareholders are better stewards of that capital than the corporation is. So if you, if you're a shareholder and you get a dividend, you can you can reinvest it in the stock or you can reinvest it in other stocks or you can simply spend it for all of that is better than the corporation pursuing an investment project, which isn't going to yield a high rate of return. So Jerry, between this 1% tax on buybacks and the minimum 15% tax on corporations do CEOs have reason to breathe a sigh of relief or be a little annoyed by this inflation reduction act. I mean, it could have been worse. Each of these could have been worse, right? Yeah, I think a little annoyed is probably a pretty good characterization. In the short term, the buyback tax is pretty small, almost insignificant. The problem is that now that it's in place, it will for sure go up over time. So lower net effective tax rate areas such as healthcare, IT, they might see a hit to EPS in 2023, would it cause you to change any investment decisions Jared? Me, people have different philosophies on this. Somebody like Warren Buffett pays a great deal of attention to tax. I actually don't, I make investment decisions sort of exclusive of tax considerations. I look what's going to provide the best return. Maybe to my detriment. Okay. Take that advice and he did it at your will. There are buyback companies, obviously, companies that like to do buybacks. There's an S&P 500 buyback index. There's obviously going to be a raft. Well, not obviously, but I mean, I presume there'll be a raft of buybacks between now and the end of the year before this takes effect. Does that ETF or do those companies outperform or underperform as a result? I think the outperformance of the buyback stocks is going to diminish over time. I think the effect is going to be pretty minuscule at first. I think what you'll see happen is as the tax goes up, the outperformance of buyback stocks versus the overall market is going to decrease. Don't forget to reach out with thoughts suggestions, opinions. I'm advan Quinn on Twitter or email VQ at Bloomberg .NET. Next. Everyone thinks that the tradeoffs controls the front end with the first farms and all the official rate. But depending on how they do it, what type of maturities they sell by, they can of course influence your curve to a degree because by selling more longer ended longer maturity bonds, that will have by definition push the yields up along in which could in some senses semi dis invert the curve. So I think it's going to be one of these types of effects. It really hasn't impacted yet. Marcus ashworth on some potentially unconsidered effects of quantitative tightening.

Former Speaker of House Newt Gingrich on the Democrats' Midterm Plan

"That I'm a little paranoid about though, mister speaker, and I talk about this openly on the program, is that the Democrats have some sort of plan for the midterms that we might not yet be gaming out correctly because I have so much respect for our opposition and how Machiavelli and they are and how they're able to use tragedy for their own purposes. What do you think their midterm plan is? Because up until recently, you know, as per your example of the Saudi Arabian visit, it seems as if they are enthusiastically accelerating over a cliff. Political consequences be damned, I suppose, what's your thoughts? Well, I think first of all, I help publish papers in the 1980s called the Grenada papers. When we liberated the island of Grenada, which spoke English, this was an island occupied largely by Africans living in the Caribbean with agriculture and tourism as there are two biggest incomes. And the communists took it over. And as the communists tried to impose communism, everything fell apart. It was a disaster. So we now know because this is how we got to the Grenada papers. Because everything they wrote was in English. So we didn't need to translate the State Department couldn't screw it up. And it turns out that the leadership of the Communist Party of Grenada, when everything was failing, would meet every Tuesday afternoon for a study group. And what they were studying was not supply side economics. It wasn't Milton Friedman. It wasn't Adam Smith. What they were studying was Stalin's writing. Now, you have a Georgian bank robber who becomes dictator of a country that covers 13 time zones, living in Moscow and really bad cold winter, being studied by African descended, Caribbean native native folks were looking around going, what should we do next? Well, what does Stalin think we should do? The reason I tell you this story is, when AOC gets in a room, she doesn't have any point of reference. But I mean, Biden's different. Biden doesn't have a point of reference because he's not sure what rumi said. But I guarantee you that Newsom Kamala Harris, barriers, other people, senator Warren, Bernie Sanders, who remember honeymooned in the Soviet Union. I mean, just ask yourself, a guy who is born who lives born in Brooklyn, but a guy who was living in the forest of Vermont. Besides to go on a honeymoon, does he go to the Caribbean? Does he go to the beach now? He goes to the motherland to the great forest of Russia from the forest of Vermont. I mean, this isn't true believer.

"senator warren" Discussed on What Bitcoin Did

"I worry about it a lot. Me too. Hopefully, Bitcoin fixes this. Well, yeah, I'm just about to release a film that I made about Bitcoin where I'm like, well, Bitcoin doesn't fix everything. Well, this is the issue, right? And I think we handled this last time. But, you know, when your aunt kills over in the middle of a cardiac incident and somebody says, don't worry, Bitcoin fixes this. You just want to punch that guy in the face. It has to be a non reflexive response. Bitcoin fixes a lot potentially. And there's a lot it doesn't fix. And so we've got to get wiser and smarter and think, I mean, this is really what I'm hoping for, which is, I was pretty heartened by the number of people who took something away from our interview that was positive that said, maybe I want to be very clear that I am pro Italian exotic cars. I do think that having fun and getting rich and enjoying its fruits is a good thing. But hopefully, you know, my hope is that you guys get rich enough that we get to think about really romantic things. And that's one of the reasons, for example, when Bitcoin gets slammed, I try to show up in the Bitcoin rooms and make sure that when people know that I'm a critic when people are high as a kite on their net worth looking at their Bitcoin holdings, when they feel suddenly humbled and beaten up, I want to play the opposite role. Yeah, I think people will sometimes misunderstood your criticism. It's not a criticism similar to likes of senator Warren who clearly has an agenda and hates on Bitcoin and wants to destroy it. Your criticisms come from a place of wanting to make Bitcoin stronger and make the Bitcoin community stronger in its output. Well, and I, you know, I haven't limited myself to Bitcoin. This is whatever this new technology is, again, we have to separate out. There's a technology. There's a money, there's an extent to which you can say that Bitcoin is successful because it's a technology that is a money that doesn't try to do too many things. We can go through all that again or not. Something new was invented. And I don't think anyone's an expert in this. People say, you know, in the Bitcoin culture, this and that, there hasn't been enough time. We don't really know what we're dealing with. And I think it's one of the most exciting intellectual developments around. I mean, certainly of our time. So trying to somebody once said that a startup is a business in search of a model or something like this. You don't really know what you're doing when you create a startup. And in a certain sense, I don't think anyone really knows what Bitcoin and its associated technologies is ultimately meant to be for us. We have to keep an open mind. Well, yeah, because originally it was designed as decentralized money, the government can't switch off, but increasing new use cases are being found. We've learned about how mining within Texas is stabilizing the grid, we've also seen cultural influences on how people live their life from Bitcoin, which I think I don't think was ever expected to come from it..

Joy Reid Accuses Elon Musk of 'Misappropriating Black Vernacular for Misogynistic Purposes'

"Start with this story. Somewhat obscure perhaps. You know who Elon Musk is? Richest man in America, rich is person in America. And it's going to be paying $15 billion in taxes this year, unfortunately for Californian since he's now relocated to Florida, California won't get the state income taxes. They otherwise would have gotten had he remained. But I digress. And he has been slammed by Elizabeth Warren. On the joy read show, that I watched you don't have to on MSNBC. And Elizabeth Warren made the case that Elon Musk use a great deal of taxpayer money in order to launch some of his projects, including Tesla. And mosque, as you know, not shy, referred to her as senator Karen. And reminded everybody that she faked her heritage as a Native American in order to get an advantage. To become a professor at Harvard. And he accused joy Reid of being her lobbyist. And joy Reid shot back and accused him of cultural appropriation for using the term Karen to insult. Elizabeth Warren, because it's a term that was invented by black people, she said. Si. Elon wasn't happy. He did what he always did and stopped his little feet insulted senator Warren. Calling her an angry mom and referring to her as senator Aaron. So for so many reasons, being a freeloader and a selfish and disrespectful one. And for misappropriating black vernacular from his odd purposes, Elon Musk is the absolute worst. Meanwhile senator Warren has better things to do than fight with junior Birdman on Twitter. Wow. Call him a freeloader.

"Tax fight that's breaking out on Twitter between sitter, Elizabeth Warren, and you guessed it, Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Senator Warren tweeted, let's change the rig tax code. So the person of the year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else. Musk responded, as usual. He said, you remind me of when I was a kid and my Friends angry mom would just randomly yell at everyone for no reason. He then added, please don't call the manager on me. Senator Karen. Then later must tweeted. And if you opened your eyes for two seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Then he added, don't spend it all at once. Oh wait, you already did. So once again, saying exactly what he thinks about this, but that was kind of the first thing I saw when I heard about senator Warren's tweet is, look, this guy is going to pay a ton of money in taxes. More than more than any American, and everyone she's ever known will ever pay. Any of us more than any of us. And then you add on the add on the shareholder. Just check off the list of why now here's what I'll say with Arthur Brooks in mind. The office of the Senate deserves respect. So I understand that. On the other hand, you add up what he's going to pay, which is going to be 10 billion plus. You add up what all his employees pay, you add up what all the shareholders who eventually sell Tesla pay in capital gains. You add up the number of jobs that's created. You add up the EV market. You add up the carbon. If you want to do EVs, you own for that. So now let's compare Elizabeth Warren's contributions. To the world, Andrew, I know you love her and you think she's contributing a lot. But let's compare what give them to me again, what are they? The actual contributions to society and the world. And not only that, he pointed out a couple of things that she's never really answered, too. Now I'm not going to say I enjoyed those tweets. Those are the most enjoyable tweets I've seen since Trump got banned. I won't say that. But wait a minute. I was going to be Arthur Brooks. And here I am. Okay, let me try and play Arthur Brooks for a moment. And just point out the reason that she is so frustrated by this might be not only because of what Elon Musk is doing with selling a lot of stock this year before they're going to be able to pass any higher tax laws or any change in the tax laws. And it's not just Elon Musk who's been doing this. If you add it up, it's something like $240 billion that the richest Americans have sold in stocks this year, far more than they've sold in years past, far more. And that's because they know tax changes are coming. Not only in the United States, but in places like Seattle. That's why that's a good thing. We're getting out of it. But you were getting at it. We weren't getting out of it too. So we're getting we're getting at the money that we supposedly were never going to get because they were never going to sell. A couple of just quick notes. One is that in Elon Musk's case, and I will be defensive of Elon Musk in this instance in a different way. He's selling this year. I would argue actually has very little to do with the tax changes coming up potentially next year or not. Good stuff. With the fact that he actually has to sell because he has to actually pay taxes because he has these options. Might be a good time. I just want to put that to the side. Yes, there are other people who are selling Becky this year that may very well be doing that for tax reasons. But Elon Musk, I don't believe as one of them. He has to facilitate separate them out as different things. I agree. Clearly, Elizabeth Warren doesn't seem to appreciate how much in taxes he's going to pay. Her argument, as you know, is much more around how much people have made in large part through stock effectively unrealized gains. That's her argument. I'm not suggesting, as you know, I don't believe in taxing unrealized gains. But the last point I'd make and it's just to the point I think of honoring everybody, I think there is something just ungraceful. Let's just say about punching down in the way that some of the language and rhetoric is given what we're all trying to do. If we all really are trying to live an Arthur Brooks life, I think that the comment that's where he said, if you would wake up for two seconds and see how much I'm paying. I think those are very fair and reasonable things to say, given how much he's paying. I think that when you start name calling people and trying to bully people, it's a bad look. I would agree with that to a certain extent, but I think she started this because I don't think that's exactly what I mean. I don't think she's that stupid to not this was a specious argument. You remember first pull up remember Rambo? You drew first blood. I didn't ask for this. I didn't want this. I didn't cause this, but once she started, I'm going to do a Rambo on your ass. And that's exactly what we're seeing. I mean, he didn't. She's horrific about these things she throws out in the name calling. I think name calling on, by the way, I think there's two is we're out of line. Hold on. I'm telling you, Joe. I'm telling you in the most bipartisan human way in a way that does not, with most other journalists on television that senator Warren often punches down herself and shouldn't. No. That's a bad look too. What I'm just suggesting is when you start to call people names, no matter on what political side you're on, it's not a good way to do it and at a time when Elon Musk is being heralded as the time man of the year and everything else. Right. He has every right to defend himself and he should. I'm just suggesting when it gets in the name calling. There's got to be about Warren as well. An update now on the impact of the COVID outbreak starting with the NBA last night severn Brooklyn Nets players were ruled out because of COVID protocols. The team had only 8 players available for their game and that is the minimum required by the league before cancellation at Brooklyn beat Toronto in overtime, thanks to some help from rookies on the roster that were called into service. Meantime, COVID outbreaks are taking a toll in the football world and might even decide which teams play in the Super Bowl ESPN reporting that 75 NFL players have tested positive in the last few days with the rams and browns being hit now, particularly hard, the rams coach saying that all 13 players on the COVID list were vaccinated. And a COVID outbreak shutting down Cornell's campus my Alma mater during finals week the university announcing yesterday all final exams, we moved to an online format, the move was sparked by an active student active student cases that now topped 469. The curve guys, it was like a true J curve if you watch what was happening at Cornell. And you're seeing this J curve happening all over the northeast. There's a bunch of schools where this was happening. Yeah. Well, it's just a bunch of schools where the same thing was happening. And it was right after Thanksgiving, everybody came back for the two weeks of exams and it took off. And you're looking at omikron at least in the New York and New Jersey area outpacing or on its way to outpace delta, I think it's now up to about 13%. I think nationally, it's something like 3% nationally. Yeah, that's what I saw 3% nationally. But delta is still the big problem even higher. So it's going to be very interesting to see what happens over the next couple of days and weeks. I'm already, I don't know if you've had this yet a couple of different events and other things where people are either canceling them outright or adding testing protocols on top or all sorts of things. So I think we're about to get into the soup. And it's going to get worse over the next few months. There's a convergence. You know how many hospitalizations presumably with amber crumble but you got delta still around causing the hospitalization. They got the flu season coming. You could get a delta theoretically, I guess. And did you see hospitalizations are actually up with young people? I think when it comes to hometown, this is much more mild. But it still is putting younger people in the hospital at.

"See why it's a huge, huge deal in the farming community, and why that's rippled out. I'm curious going back to Apple and why they're doing this. I'm curious if you think that they were just trying to front run or get ahead of any potential regulations that were in place because I know the FTC was looking at this. And as you said, senator Warren, other elected officials are lawmakers we're looking to this issue as well. I mean, do you think that had that played a part in apple's calculus? Without question, this extra pressure that's been coming down. And I think also just the general mood of the public and where the politics were going, Apple probably saw that it was on the wrong side of this debate at one point. And decided to move. But I also, you know, I know it probably sounds like I'm defending Apple. But I do not discount the fact that this company does often try to think what is the best decision for its users. And the only reason I bring this up is that this that if they really wanted to play the profit game, I don't think they would have said that they're going to offer these parts at the same cost that they charge the repair people that they're going to offer tools at the same costs that they charge repair people that they're going to just put these manuals online for free. I think that Apple could have created a lot more hurdles. I made it a lot harder for you to be able to repair your stuff. They're even actually creating new apps that are going to work over the air so that when you repair, let's say the camera module or the screen, there's some calibration that has to happen. And that requires a special app that only Apple has and up until now has been very, very tightly controlled..

Here’s What We Know About the Arizona Election Audit

"I just want to recap what we already know from the arizona. Audit according to senator warren peterson and just one senate testimony that we did stream live. And we're going to stream more of them. We know that thousands of duplicate ballots. That serial numbers were senton with the wrong ballot-boxes. We know that maricopa county was supposed to use vote secure paper that should not bleed through but instead the ballot show that there was bleed through. Which could we don't know if it did. Cancel the ballots. There were three thousand nine hundred. Eighty one votes that were registered to vote in violation of an arizona supreme court ruling issued prior to the election. We know that eleven thousand three hundred and twenty six votes were counted even though these voters were not on the voter rolls on november seventh. Interestingly that's almost exactly the margin of what joe biden was declared the winner by interestingly almost almost to the number over we know that according to the arizona audit over seventy four thousand votes more mail in ballots received and counted than were mailed out and we know that based on system. Forensics there is no way. The county can certify this election to be safe now. That word safe is rather arbitrary and subjective. But that's just what we know so far

"senator warren" Discussed on KNST AM 790

"We're start attorneys. They're saying it's not illegal. Here's what's clear. I don't think anybody can argue with this. It is illegal to not comply with the subpoena. And there are serious consequences. If you don't you don't comply with this subpoena. You could be looking at a misdemeanor and you could be looking at a rest. S so I think that is without Question on. Do they really have no legal consequence that they had just about on the equipment? What's gonna happen? So you know what's gonna happen? Really Nothing is gonna happen. Um, So it's just that you just start to beg the question. Why? Won't they comply? Why won't Why won't they handed over? Um, something there now It's like they keep moving the ball Now they're starting to say, Oh, well, there's private information that we don't want a handout. First of all, that's not true. We're looking at anonymous ballots. Well looking at people were not linking up people two ballots, so there's no private information and it's the state. So what's the difference between the state and the political subdivision of the state looking about? They looked at the ballots. They like everything. What's the difference? You know, it's not like we're handing this over to private individuals that are using it for commercial purposes there or something like that. Yeah, I know that. This is this is insane. We have state Senator Warren Peterson. He's the chairman of the Judiciary Committee on Canada's Tee. Am 7 90 s O. Okay, Here's the thing. You You asked the question. I don't if you want to answer it, but I mean, look, it looks really fishy. When you have a whole bunch of people. I'm not a fan of the governor. I think he he didn't like the president. I think he's done a lot of shady things with this emergency order. I think he's You know, he's very seems to be very, very happy. Biden's in office and celebrates that never supported the president. He seems like he's part of the establishment. The old McCain clan on dit Looks like his buddies that are on this Maricopa County Supervisory board are doing everything they can to protect him because I mean, why? If there was nothing to hide, why would they not just turn this over again again? You're doing everything by the book there in the Senate. So I mean, do you think that and I know you can't be expected? But there's got to be something as a reason. They're hiding this and it could show. What wordy if if there's bad things on there. What are you expecting to find? So we know that the two auditing companies that they have checked, We looked at the scope that they're doing and it's a total joke. They're doing a very, very limited. Cursory look at the at the machines they're not looking about. They're not. They're not looking at balance it all So what? What we're going to be looking at. We're gonna look at the ballots and we want to see if there were any duplicates. You want to see if there was, you know, we want to be looking for Ballots that were, you know, printed, Um, you know, ballots that were, um uh, you know, stuffed or or illegal? Um, so we actually want to look at the 2.1 million ballots. And you know there's things that for Endicott deters conducive to look these ballots to see to see if there's any fraud and they're not going to be doing that there. If you're not asking the questions, you're not Gonna get the answers. No, I'm not. I'm not here to say that. I think the supervisors are doing anything nefarious. They're probably just listening. It looks to me like they're just listening to their staff, and they're just pretty much is doing whatever their staff is telling them to do. And so I guess my question would be is what is the staff? Found a hide and you know what are they? What? What are they worried about? Um, us finding arresting So so, I mean, you know that everything put through a tabulation machines, right? That's what you're talking about Two so they could tell whoever does the forensic audit could tell if something was, I guess Label is a mail in ballot. But it doesn't have a crease in it. Which means it wasn't me that somebody's stuff. That's the stuff. You're looking to be one of them. Yeah, You have a supposed mail in ballot, but there's no creases. Anywhere on the ballot, then that would that would tell you that that was, you know, not a mailed in ballots. It had never had never made it to the melody just been delivered there. So doesn't want that's just one of many things that they would they would look for and be looking at and you're talking about. You know, they have spent 10 days really digging into this stuff. And these guys, they're forensic auditors. The two companies that they're using using right now are not certified. As auditors. They're certified. They're actually accredited to look to make sure that the machines made THC standards. I mean, that's you know that's they're doing in and I'm exaggerating here, but it's basically like Let's make sure the machines turned on and off. Let's run some, You know, regular reports. It's kind of just the certifications that they they're doing. Um You know, before and I was told that one of the companies had done the certification before. Well, isn't that a conflict of interest? The same company too? Checked it up front. Now we have him checking it. You know, um at the back end, so I don't know what the big deal is. It's really not a big deal. It's really we just want the ballots. We want that, too. It is a big deal. Yeah. I mean, I know you can't say too much, and we're talking with state Senator Warren Peters and Chairman of the Judiciary Committee right here in Canada. No, You can't say too much because of your position, but I mean again, where there's smoke. Generally, there's fire and they keep keep hiding this Now I want to ask you about the company. There was a story the in the Arizona Mirror about an email they obtained Where it says here. The Senate wants Allied security operations group and they have a history of doing this stuff, and they have. I mean, they have..

On Student Debt, Biden Must Decide Whose Loans to Cancel

On Student Debt, Biden Must Decide Whose Loans to Cancel

"This hour. We are exploring the ideas and the debate over forgiving student. Loan debt in the united states. A little earlier you heard the voices from some on point listeners. Telling us the impact that carrying student loan debt has had on their lives. We also heard from some listeners. Who did not support the idea of widespread. Loan forgiveness. I will lose my mind if they do that. Student loan forgiveness. When i went to college. I chose a college. That was a state school. Because that was what i could afford. I worked four jobs while i was in college so that i didn't have any debt when you take out you know what you're signing for and it's a choice. Life's all about choices. I'm not for it you know i. I guess i was lucky in that. I had a family who raised me to be wary of that Ultimately ended up joining the military. So i can pay for college. I just don't see where the equity is there so those are some on point listeners from west virginia and from new york professors. Odi the when we say equity right. I mean Nathan the caller. There used that that that very word it's being used in different contexts right like just in the previous segment. We talked about how the disproportionate impact of student loans on black students. For example. there's a. There's a kind of itchy trying to achieve equity there as well but i want to just get street to what does fairness mean here because i think you probably remember from the presidential primaries last year gotta might as well be five hundred years ago but it was last year. There was a moment where think it was in iowa. Where an iowa voter confronted senator elizabeth warren about this idea of student loan debt forgiveness and the voter was saying like hey. His daughter's getting out of school. He saved all his money and even worked multiple jobs so that she didn't have to have any student loans. So would he get that money. Back and senator. Warren said no and he just infuriated him because he he made the decisions to not give his daughter a legacy of debt And there would be no payoff for that or no. Other people who chose the debt path would have forgiven. So what do you think about that. Fairness question yeah. I think it's an interesting question i mean. What does fairness in this instance. Let's say we don't cancel any of the debt. He's still not going to get that money back. But it might prevent you know the next generation of people from having to work multiple jobs and do all of this Extra work to get their children educated so failing to cancel anyone's debt doesn't really solve problems here. You now Would also we does doesn't solve problems in terms of like the underlying cost of higher ed correct and also then. The same thing will just continue to happen. Is it fair to that guy that everyone else must suffer the same way. Okay well so. But i mean failing to cancel. That doesn't solve that problem. But how does cancelling the debt solve the problem of very expensive higher education in this country. I think that it has to go hand in hand with policies that address. That exact problem the fact that the college tuition year over here has increased far beyond inflation. And they're just like structural issues at universities. I think that a lot of these universities. They've had to invest so heavily in responding to the corona virus and they are out of resources and local and state governments are also low on resources. So it's likely the federal government is going to have to invest in these institutions of higher education. So it seems like a good opportunity to deal with that underlying problem at the same time as as as addressing what we've been doing for the past several decades the fact that that yeah no no no. I didn't mean it up you there but I'm agreeing like this. This to me is the core issue. Cancellation are no cancellation's short-term decision with an with impact on yeah forty-three potentially forty three million americans right now but does it you. You were talking about next. Generations do really anything to via the problem for them. There's one more question to ask about fairness and feel free to tell me that. This is a terrible comparison. But you know every single day mean especially after the financial crisis americans or the housing crisis. I should say from eight americans have been told. Don't buy a house outside your means but by the house that you can afford. Shouldn't we have the same encouragement for education. Yeah so that's interesting. I mean it might be a good opportunity. To contrast with what's happening in europe for example in denmark you get six years of free tuition room and board and a stipend to attend higher education. What they're going to have is an educated people an educated workforce and etiquette educated citizenry. If what we're going to say instead is if your parents are not wealthy don't go to a good school. don't go to an expensive school. I mean that's one way of building a society. I'm not sure that it's the best. One we know is going to be then financially. Racially socio economically exclusive. And that's not the idea that we have about america right. You're supposed to be able to go to school and move up in life. Higher education as a tool for social mobility and also and very often not even mobility but just hanging onto. Where wherever it is that you were able to achieve in the last generation just stasis just like being really part of a society. Most jobs require a college degree these days so we we want to tell people. You can't afford to go to school. So don't

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

Wall Street Reacts to Biden-Harris Ticket

"Today Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made their first appearance together as running mates for the Democratic presidential ticket. CARMELA. As you all know is smart. She's tough. She's experienced. She's a proven fighter for the backbone of this country. The middle class for all those who are struggling to get into the middle class. Connell. Knows how to govern. She knows how to make the hard calls. She's ready to do this job on day one. After the most competitive primary in history. The country received a resounding message that Joe was the person to lead US forward. and. Joe. I'm so proud to stand with you. And I do so mindful. Of all the ROIC ambitious women before me. Who sacrifice determination and resilience makes my presence here today even possible. This is a moment. Of Real consequence for America, Harris's pick is historic and has prompted reactions from around the World Harris's father is Jamaican. Her mother is from India. She's the first black woman and the first woman of South Asian ancestry on a major party presidential ticket in the US Also, Reacting Wall Street. Financial leaders were anxiously awaiting Joe Biden's pick for vice president, our tech money and politics reporter Emily Glaser has been speaking to many of them and joins me now. So Emily you bet on the phone with business leaders all day. How would you characterize their reaction? This leaders are generally really happy that Comma Harris was chosen as Biden's VP pick for a couple of reasons. But basically, they view her as a pragmatic person or realist who while she has been tough on big. Business in the past looks at the nuance issues and takes each thing at a time versus having a blanket approach as you know, the wealthiest bad or big businesses bad. We've seen president trump and his campaign try to paint Senator Harris as a radical left wing Pick Wall Street doesn't seem to see it that way. Definitely not a lot of what I. Heard from folks on the phone text messages emails. But that she's moderate, she sent her even though people don't like using those words that much anymore and that's similar to how they think about Biden and a lot of the reasons why think financial leaders are happy and pleased and cheering on this Harris pick is that she does represent a move away from. The. Far Left Progressive Part of the Democratic Party the part that Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Are In and so they're relieved that you know things like more financial regulation or really taking back see right now it's all about economic recovery and harassed and Biden have said they think big business is good if the economy recovers and business recovers, that's good for. Everybody. You know it's interesting because after Biden made his announcement yesterday, we heard Praise from people like Senator Warren and Senator Sanders. We know Senator Harris has pledged to be tough on big banks as California Attorney General. She pushed for a big settlement with banks for their role in the foreclosure crisis. What about her record makes Wall Street thinks she's a moderate. It's a great question look like you said, she's touted her tough on banks record. But when you actually break it down, what folks in the financial community are saying is that she's made no secret that there's wrongdoing she will prosecute her background as a prosecutor, but it's also important to keep in mind that her big bank settlement was very nuanced and she did claim a lot of credit for it got brought a lot to. The State of California but we had reported earlier last year that she wasn't always really doing as much of the substance of the negotiations and she was doing a lot that solidified. The Big Bank settlement is helping her record as a politician. So when I spoke with bankers and financial executives last night and today they were saying look she's GonNa take swings at us. We get that it's politics. We're not gonNA take it personally. When there's wrongdoing you know she says she's going to prosecute. We got that but she's not going to have a blanket approach as all banks are bad or all wealthy people are bad. What were some of her other policies on the campaign trail and what do they tell us about her stance toward the financial industry. Healthcare was a really big wine and let's not forget healthcare with the most important issue on the campaign trail. Now, in coronavirus times, it's shifted more to economic recovery. But Harris struggled with this event she failed to really clearly state what her plan was initially, and then once she did she basically said she would have a government run health care plan that would still allow for private insurers an even mentioned that she proposed taxing financial transactions to pay for that. Health care overhaul. So that's something that certainly is out there would really impact the financial sector. Another one that was really big was her so called three. I'm agenda in the beginning of the primary when she was on the trail, she often would attack president trump a lot but she changed strategies partway through an efforts to really appeal more to the every man, every woman and the middle class and mentioned things like gender pay equality breezing teacher salaries and things. Like that that she hoped would get her more voters. She's also being welcomed warmly from the tech world. What can you tell us about that? You know, let's not forget that Kamla Harris has been a politician California in the bay area for a while she was district attorney. She was Attorney General She's been California senator since two thousand sixteen she knows tech executives in Silicon Valley and his raise money from them for her races for a number of years she. Also, lives part time in southern. California with her husband Doug Hav who is an corporate entertainment lawyer. So she's got these deep ties to the media telecom tech and entertainment world folks that have fundraise for her for years. They know her they think she's tough but fair and are very excited and already planning fundraisers now that she's the VP pick, she's also shown that she can raise big bucks from Wall Street donors. How might that help the Biden campaign overall? I think it will help double down on a lot of the money that they need. I saw an invite for recent fundraiser that has the high amount at two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. This is big money we're talking about a lot of the Biden fundraisers in recent weeks have raised millions while Harris and Biden do overlap on a lot of donors whether from the financial tech media entertainment world, a lot of them have known. Harris. For a really long time supported her during the primary and may be willing to give even more money than they already have to the Biden campaign now that she's on the ticket.

Elizabeth Warren's Presidential Bid Comes to an End

"Senator Amy Klobuchar former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Brundige and former New York City mayor. Mike Bloomberg have all called it quits and today. We're adding Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren to that list. I will not be running for president in twenty twenty but I guarantee I will stay in the fight for the hardworking folks across this country have gotten short into the stick over another. That's been the fight of my life and it will continue to be so warrants progressive policy driven campaign caught fire last fall making her an early favorite to win the nomination but she had a disappointing showing in the first elections in the primary season. Including this week Super Tuesday with more on the rise and fall of Warren's candidacy we're joined by Wall Street Journal reporter Tarini Party Tarini. Last fall senator. Warren was one of the front runners for the Democratic nomination but today she became the last remaining woman among the top tier candidates drop out. How expected was this announcement at this point. Given what we saw on Super Tuesday Warren was essentially left with no choice. But to drop out there was all choose facing a lot of pressure because she didn't win a single state she came third in her home state of Massachusetts. And so you know as this race drags out with Joe Biden on one side and Bernie Sanders on the other. The more candidates who stay in the longer the Democratic primary could become. And that's something that party leaders are trying to avoid They WANNA be trump and so they think that the field should sort of consolidate And so they can have a nominee sooner rather than later and she just didn't see a path forward a viable path forward. She did not end. You know ahead of Super Tuesday. Her staff had said that they were looking at a contested convention as one of the ways that were left for her to essentially be the Democratic nominee. They were hoping that she would pick up enough delegates on Super Tuesday to make that case but she didn't get that far and at this point. She said she just saw no path forward. Let's talk about the rise and fall of her candidacy. Tarini people were talking about her back in two thousand sixteen. When Hillary was running right she chose not to run in two thousand sixteen. And this time around you know. She started off with a few missteps She really did get her footing back. She focused her campaign on Ground Game Organization. She built out a huge campaign that focused on raising money online That really Invested in field organizers in in the early states An early on she did start getting a lot of traction. You know if you go back to the late summer early fall. She was starting to become the front runner in this primary. And then that slowly started That's that's slowly. Went away as more questions about her health. Care plan started. Cropping up she eventually put out a Medicare her own version of Medicare for all And you know wasn't really able to sell that both to moderate voters and progressive voters which she said today in her press conference was interesting. She said that when she started out she was told that there were two lanes in the Democratic primary the the Progressive Lane and the The moderate lane and Joe Biden would be the front runner in the moderate Lane and Bernie Sanders was in coming on the Progressive Lane. She was told she said that there was no other path. And she said she Set at the time that she didn't believe that that she thought that she could change things and she said today that that she was wrong It seems based on the way that this primary has played out who among those remaining candidates Former Vice President Biden or Vermont Senator Sanders Might Benefit from Warren's exit. So we'll have to see you know if she decides to endorse. She said today that she's going to take some time to think. And figure things out you know a lot of her supporters. Are you know more progressive? And if you in that sense they could be. You know they could move to Bernie Sanders but she also does have a lot of college educated women who aren't necessarily you know the Bernie Sanders Type of voter so she could. You know some Some of her supporters could also back Joe Biden Tarini. Warren's departure leaves two white men in their seventies competing to run against president trump another white man in his seventies. What are we to make of the fact that this was historically diverse. Field has whittled down to this. It was historically diverse. We had six women. If you know if you're including Tulsi Gabbard and Marianne Williamson. We had six women running Tulsi Gabbard is obviously still in the race but has not gained any traction she elizabeth. Warren was the you know the the last top tier woman still running. She sort of addressed that in her in her press conference one of the hardest parts of this is all those all those little girls. We're going to have to wait four more years. That's going to be hard. What affected Warren. Have on the two thousand presidential campaign and we'll see continue to influence it going forward. I think she will continue to have Influence and be a big voice especially if she decides to endorse either Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. Going forward how they bring up some of her policy ideas and whether they choose to incorporate those in their own campaign that will be interesting to
