There's going to study them for a little bit of time and buys the company a moment to figure out what they do next which is probably just continued to do what they're doing now but they have a couple more years to do it. I mean you see you say in the pesticides industry where the company will fight tooth and nail against a product being regulated and. They're just buying time because every day the it's not regulated or banned. They're making more money making a return on the investment developing the project.

Dan easily the former exxon lobbyists to you spoke to he talked about how the trump administration was a huge win for exxon. What was the big wins. F trump. you should do echo mobile announcement and donald trump's you know the the winds are that it would be difficult to to take them all but the biggest win of all wasn't anything environmental. It was cut to the corporate tax rate. The reduction of the corporate rate and was not believe on So yeah it'd be you realize how much these things are intertwined. Where is such a massive company that that cut to the corporate tax rate was huge for them allows them to keep doing what they're doing. It was just interesting to me. It's not just about climate change known an approach to biden's american jobs plan you know the big two trillion infrastructure package. Yeah the infrastructure package. It was just as much by making sure that they didn't have to pay for any of this climate stuff. It was about the threat that that stuff incentives like subsidies for electric vehicles of the business interests. So they've got kind of very strong incentive to make sure that that bill was the smallest possible and keep them. Coy in particular is really transparent about how they're doing that which is just going to senators who they think are moderate or they may be influenceable. Especially someone like. Joe manchin or shelley capito. Who's also a senator. From the other senator from west virginia and making the case and keep mccoy even says he's speaking to their offices once a week which seems like a lot yes exactly and he also talks about how they set up a meeting between biden's close friend chris coons and excellency i so that they could get through to the president by his friend if they could and so. I think some of the senators of said he's as exaggerated his Access to them but you can see the what the strategy is and you can also see bolt. The brazil has been incentive infrastructure package. Which is a much smaller bell with like mccoy. Aimed full has been stripped back largely to roads and bridges on which the vast majority of climate spending has been stripped arts off so it seems you know that could be in other forces at play but it seems exxon gone. What wants yeah. It's funny because as you are doing your reporting and work of course the democrats were in the middle of negotiating over this infrastructure. Bill and there was a moment a couple of weeks back where joe biden got in front of cameras and said you know we have a deal. Joe manchin was there. None of us scott will always that we wanted. I clearly didn't get all. I want it. They gave more than i think. Maybe there were climbed to given the first place but this reminds me of. They wonder if you saw that tape and you saw a little bit differently. You kind of knew what might have gone into that deal. Yes certainly did. I kind of saw the this is exactly the deal. That's on wanted and know looking at that statement that was made to think on the the white house loans on saying that many of the sentences the mr mccoy boasted of having spoken to you could on and see how these compromises packages come to be quite depressing stuff to be honest. Exxon has responded to lawrence's sting ceo. Darren woods said. The comments of former exxon lobbyists denizli and current. Exxon lobbyists keith mccoy are entirely inconsistent with the oil giants work mccoy issued his own mea culpa on linked in. He said he was embarrassed by his comments and that they don't represent exxon's positions despite all this lauren's says it's possible. Exxon is nudging towards change in the last year exxon's competitor. Vp has made aggressive climate goals aiming to be carbon neutral by twenty fifty. And now there's evidence of tension inside exxon itself earlier this summer activist. Investors managed to replace three members of the company's board of directors with people who wanna push the company to focus on clean energy. I think their ability to continue to maintain their like a good faith actor on climate. Change is going to be very difficult for them. And you know really. They should be thinking about how they can reflect on on the happenings of last few months. What's this story. All the shareholder activism and think about is the strategy. We're currently pursuing the right one because nice speaking to investors like they don't think it is That's interesting your sound kind of optimistic to me that you think like okay. Maybe there's a turning point here. Having seen a similar thing happen to be an them change to extend the jury still not you know i do think the companies like exxon does does it. There's a possibility that they will shaft. Not personally. I think that's pretty important. It's a three hundred billion dollar company. It's very influential. It's very global. And if it were of i guess the lie and become more of good faith octa on these issues than it would kind of be like very helpful to efforts to tackle climate change. So i'm not naive. Just one small development in much the longest story about kind of highly tackle the climate crisis but united to tackle a big problem like climate change. You need lots of small things to happen. That's the way you can ask for reports ready that like you..

"Is we're going to drive up your costs in a couple of ways. We will now compete with you. For your employees by paying them. To stay home. So that they're not encouraged to go back to work. And as long as they are not encouraged to go back to work, then we'll also turn on say, and you know what if you want to paint you want to have employees just pay them more. So they're supposed to reach into their pockets. And somehow find quote more. To pay them where in their pockets. Is all that extra cash is supposed to be so employers are not being told you have to compete with the government is going to pay your potential employees to stay away from you. To pay them enough. To encourage them to go to work. And how are we going to do that? We're going to text you more heavily. So that you can pay for your own employees that we are actually doing our damnedest to make sure that you won't see again because we want to make sure Getting the extra 300 bucks a week a day a month. Whatever the case might be, we're going for it. We want that to be known. Just pay them more. Not a problem at all. And then you have the president. After telling them to simply compete. With the government was paying people not to work. Then he has to Shelley Moore Capito, who hurts That's her name, Senator Shelley Moore Capito. He says he spent hours negotiating with Senator Shelley Moore Capito. But he, uh He couldn't remember her name. Also want to thank Senator Shelley Capito? Uh, for earlier working Kapito Jones an agreement, but she tried her best to get something done. I'm sure it helped produce the final agreement We had. Yeah, that's Kapito, not Caputo. But hey, You know, as long as you don't mind being called Job, Baden. I guess it's perfectly OK. Uh huh. And he's leaving the country folks. He's in charge here. Steve is in his car. Good morning, Steve. How are you? Good morning, um, that it's just insane where we are, But my point is when he whispers off, pay them more. Why don't you whisper will take no taxes out of anyplace. Well, that would be a step or we're going to lower your taxes. So you have more money in your pocket so you can hire them. Yeah, but they get an automatic pay rates. People have a hard time. People can't understand. They get automatic cost of living raise when they raise payroll taxes mandatory. They make more money without doing anything. And here's another thing. You want to fix this system. You want to shot the system and find out How much you are in charge. Start paying people all cash. You keep 100% of your money. You know, you keep 100% of your money. Just country would shut down. They would get rid of cash. But no, they're going to charge us. More taxes on more payroll, so they get more money to waste. It's impossible to fix. Well, the only way to fix it is to do what some of the race state governors are doing. And that is to say no, We're not going to keep competing with you for employees. That money was there because we felt people were in desperate straits And now there are jobs around. Go get one. To me. That's the grown up approach, but the president won't take that approach. And then we're going to go to court over people that can't get kicked out of their houses. And I mean it's I wish I'm out working every day with, you know, I'm lucky to be working. Got some arthritis, but I war work. Yes, I don't want to be a dole. But that's the American way. Now, it just be a bump on, you know. Like virtual okay, virtual people to stay home that aren't out traveling bag and gas. The people that are out at Wendy's and all that they should get 25% of our money because they're not spending money on gas cards, insurance. Clothing. What's wrong with that idea? Yeah, I'm just soapbox that well, No, but it's a It's a pretty decent soapbox. Stephen, You have a lot of valid points here. Uh, if the government with the maxim is if you want Less of something tax. It If you want more of something. Either Don't tax it or subsidize it. So if you want more employment Then within the private sector, you would find a way of subsidizing it and you have some decent ideas is how to do that. On the other hand of what you really want. Tell me what you want. What? You really, really want know if you what you really want. Is to have more and more people dependent upon the government. Then you subsidize that And you do that by paying them more money to stay home. Where does the money come from? It comes from folks like you, Steve. Well, you heard me Say it before in closing. I could fix the world if I have an endless checkbook. Oh, yeah, I can fix every I will fix everything If I throw money at a fan and have a great weekend. You too, Steve. Thanks. And thanks for For keeping busy. That's a good thing you know, Work actually has defined us. Uh, and it's a It's a reasonable kind of thing to expect that we would work in part because we've seen how collectivism doesn't work. You know to each according to his needs from each according to his ability just doesn't work out very well. By the way, Bruce with his selfless, slightly Communist decision of the needs of the many are weighing the needs of the one He has joined the shiny ranks of Jim Comey and John Roberts, turning a blind lie to illegally illegality ready for the supposed greater good. Will surely cost this nation a dear price. Yeah, well, that's That's Joe Biden. It's not your money, It's the government's.

"The real threats. The President Biden and other leaders of the G seven will be discussing what they lie further a field cyber attacks originating in Russia, the aggression and oppression of China, not to mention Covid and the potential Chinese cover up. President Biden, however, says the most dangerous threat is none of the above. This is not a joke. You know what the joint Chiefs told us. The greatest threat facing America was global warming. President Biden is also going to announce that the U. S will pay for fun. 500 million doses of Pfizer vaccine for the rest of the world. It's part of his vaccine diplomacy and also a wider push to move away from America first. It is the Martha Zoller show, and I think this is gonna be this issue is going to be the downfall of President Biden and Maybe other people around him as far as elected officials and I'll tell you what it is, Rod, okay? If your house is burning you don't plant the garden. Wow. Okay with the fire, you deal with the fire and and Uh, this is not the first place. He said that he said that to the military academy he spoke at. Um He's got different things where he's saying the biggest problem we've got is is climate change Global and he used the old term global warming. We don't use that one anymore. We use climate change. And that we they use it because I think because global warming didn't happen. We were told that it was going to. You know, we were going to be unlivable by this point in time, and it didn't happen That way. There's been some cooling trends called warming trends, all that kind of stuff, so and I'm not a Climate change, denier. I just believe that, um there's bigger. I'm not sure we can control the climate. Okay, well, we cannot. And And if you go back and you look through history, there are 500 year cycles. Um, you you want to know why, When you see those fancy tutor pictures in England of Henry, the eighth and all those guys that they're always bundled up like It's winter all the time because it was winter all the time. It was called the little Ice age, and it was Cold Year round. That's when the bubonic plague came. That's what all that stuff so You know, you got to look at the cycles, but I think that, uh, President Biden needs to deal with the issues at hand. Instead of throwing the, um you know, fish of the week two. Progressive, Funny Fish of the week. The fish of the week to the progressive. Okay, So with that being said, you think you know so You really think that the things that are important? They're not categorizing them right? And so they're what's going to happen is these things are going to come back to bite them because they didn't handle them early. Because because they didn't handle them early. We've got things like inflation kicking in. We've got things like people not going back to work. We've got things like not passing a budget on time, which we haven't done for 44 years under Democrats and Republicans only twice in 44 years that's become the norm. I think Congress has to do It's so weird to us now, because they don't go up there and do their job. There are two kinds of people that go up to Congress. Okay, there are people that want to do something. And there are people that want to be something. Oh, wow. You know, that's good. And I think Kelvin King wants to do something I do, too. And I think that's the third thing. There are people that people that want to do something as people that want to be something, and then there's people that turn into the people that want to be something. Yes, yes, because they flipped right midstream. Well, it's a job so powerful about $174,000 a year, which is a lot of money, But when you got to pay You know, $25,000 a year for rent and a townhouse in D, C or whatever. It's not as much money as it sounds like, Okay, but it's a lot of money. But all of a sudden, you have a driver. That's you know, you've got a car. You've got a schedule er, so all of a sudden that $174,000 lifestyle is kind of like a half a million dollars a year lifestyle. Mhm, you know, and so and I'm not saying they don't deserve some of that, okay, because they're important people, but we start treating them like they're really important people. I'll never forget. And I'm sure Republicans do this, too. But I was going up to D. C a lot. You know, 10 15 years ago, and it was when Hillary Clinton was in the Senate. And she everywhere she traveled. She had this entourage behind her. I mean, like 10 or 15. People and God knows if you were on the same side of the hall, she was coming because you had to jump over. Because she was coming. Hillary Clinton was coming. You're not allowed to talk to her. Don't say anything to or whatever. I'm sorry. She's a United States senator just like anybody else. And of course, I tried to talk to her, but I got pushed away. I didn't get hurt or anything, but it's like I'm sorry. I'm an American. She's an American. I would say that about a Republican that acts like that. I am an American. There in American. They're elected by the people I should not kept from talking to them. It doesn't matter if you're Republican, the Democrat you represent the people want you there, and the things that you do is going to actually affect all of us. And that's the thing I think is lost somewhere along the way. That you're really there for the people where they stop being there for the people and start being there for themselves. So perfect example. This week is Shelley Capito, who is the other West Virginia senator. I don't know how West Virginia became the center of the universe. But It seems to have with Joe Manchin and Shelley Capito. I usually have looked down my nose at West Virginia. Most of my life, so she goes. She's the chief negotiator with the White House on the infrastructure bill. Okay, and they've been going back and forth, going back and forth. But the Democrats actually The Democrats have been not changing at all. And the Republicans have been coming back with a little more each time, but not but they're you know, they're hill to die on is they don't want to raise taxes and the Democrats held to die on is they want to include all these other things in that our infrastructure so they can't get closer together. But to me a negotiation means Okay. If one starts out at 100, the other starts out at 500. Then if the one that's at 100 goes to 1 50, then you come down to 4 50. You know what I mean? You try to get somewhere in the middle. Well, don't do that anymore to my understanding of that that the real sticking point Is the reason of taxes that you know they're willing to negotiate on everything else to my understanding the things that I've been hearing that it's really the real sticking point is they don't want to raise the tax on the wealthy or bat tax. Whatever it is, but see honestly. Don't think taxes should be included in a bill like that at all. If you're going to raise my taxes, then I want you to put it in a bill by itself, and I want you to defend it. Wow. You know what I mean? Because if you're going to take because government has no money on their own government only has money for money they take from me and what we have set up is the system where about half the people don't pay income tax, but they pay a lot of payroll tax. Okay, that fighter you know the fuck a guy and why did they take all my money? And then the other half of the people pay mostly income tax and not as much as much fight attacks because The Social Security. Part of the tax falls off at about $106,000 and the Medicare goes all the.

"Transparency of debt contracts would be a big step forward for China. We welcome their their membership and shareholding. In the World Bank there, the third biggest shareholder in the World Bank, and we're engaged in China in with our programs. Jamie Male passed to the World Bank with a terse economic report yesterday, they minced no words about at the World Bank in their wheelhouse of a struggling world economy, particularly Africa, and they made clear the disparity between the haves And they have nots within this pandemic is exceptional was really quite a heated interview with Mr Malpass in this eight o'clock, our Wall Street and Washington time we're waiting for the president. The United States has left the White House. We should have images of Marine one on a tape delay here for all of the press in the moment, and it is Andrews Air Force Base, Air Force one awaits this president. For his first trip abroad again more than just a visit to Cornwall in the G seven nations. He will make the grand Tour is presidents do, including inappropriate moment with the Queen Terry Haynes, with Lisa Brammertz remain Bostic and myself. Thrilled You could be with us. This morning futures and makes much like yesterday. But the yield front and center here, the yield, indicating the oddest of American economy is 1.5%. Carrying every president goes abroad and then they come back. I love what Politico says today and the ghosts of the legislative graveyard. What does the president come back to in Washington? What the president comes back to is I think a probation positives on handling of the coronavirus, including just how he will continue to talk about United States leadership there in the G seven. I think he comes back to gathering momentum in a positive way on on infrastructure. I think on on G seven and the taxes I think that people understood need to understand in markets that There's far less here than meets the eye, and Congress is unlikely to take that up. And that on semiconductors what Washington has done largely is throw money at a problem instead of trying to fix immediate issues in the supply chain or anything else, Terry, you're our expert on conservative gridlock. Are we in gridlock now? And is it a new gridlock? You know, I always think that there's there's gridlock on. There's gridlock any time that the for the progressives on the left and the Conservatives on the right ball things up. But when the center of both parties come together as they have on infrastructure, use me as they have on covid spending. And as I think that they're still likely to do about 60% likely to do on infrastructure spending, then you don't have you don't have gridlock, but You know, that's those are short term agreements that continue to exacerbate longer term problems. Like like the debt, the deficit and, you know, may feed into the inflation problem. You were just talking about a few minutes ago. Yeah, We're looking at live pictures here on the television of Marine One landing there at joint base. Andrews. Terry, what is, uh, the clout that President Biden and the Americans overall have on the international stage right now. I remain. Um well, you know, it is, I think somewhat of a of a well meaning trope to say that the that the President Biden has re establishing leadership. What he's trying to do is use a different form of leadership. That is a lot more collegial and the previous administration, which Was set off by a lot of frustrations with European countries not paying their defense spills and not doing this and not doing that. And you know, trying to reset the relationship. President Biden is resetting the reset. But the you know, but he's got one big plus, which is that the nature of concerns with China and Russia or both, Uh Focusing minds in a way that hadn't been done over the past few years. And, uh and that's really the nature of American leadership here is to try to find common solutions to those fundamental problems. I mean, talk about focusing minds. It's not just internationally, but also nationally. We saw that $250 billion plan passed by Senate yesterday. On a bipartisan basis to help support certain industries in the United States to become more competitive against China. How material is that in your view? You said in the last hour that you thought is is that the expressed the view that it might be rearranging the deck chairs, and I think that is true to some extent. Uh, markets need to understand that this is what the Endless Frontier Act, as it's called down here is all about is about long term issues, and that's perfectly fine. But you know, at the same time there is no there. There are no answers, Then you know none. None expected, really. In a facile sense to the The immediate supply chain problems. The immediate rarest problems all the other issues with but semi is much less the other issues to China. So What we're going to be doing and there's no You in Washington as to why we need to be throwing money at the semiconductor industry, which last I saw didn't really need money to be thrown at it. So, uh, you know, there's the long term problems that are being addressed, but not the short term problems, And that's what markets need to understand. Markets are also trying to understand policy and headlines that sometimes seem confusing. Yesterday we saw that Talks broke down talks ended between President Biden and Shelley Capito, the senator, Republican senator leading the bipartisan efforts you wrote A report promptly thereafter, saying, Don't believe tonight's erroneous press headlines to infrastructure talks Ending they are not. They will now continue with an expanded bipartisan cast of characters. What is the distinction of this new bipartisan discussion from the one that had been being had between capital and men? Biden Well, no sooner did I write that report than the than a bipartisan group, including that in the house that so called Problem solver Caucus and in the Senate, including Senators, Cassidy of Louisiana as well as it apparently Democratic Senators mansion in cinema, uh, came out with a proposal of about 1.2 Trillion over eight years, which is now getting into my bogey of of a deal at 1.25 to 1.5. What's important to understand here is very simply to numbers. Uh, this group and President Biden for now. $500 billion apart overall and their $250 billion apart in new spending, so that we're on our way to on the way to a deal getting done or think, tear hands up NGO with us, and he will stay with us right now. We witnessed the president of the United States as it begins his first trip abroad. This to the G seven meetings in Cornwall. Very much self southwest of London is well, the president now leaving Marine one from the White House with Mrs Biden. And they will, of course, leave on Air Force One. A bit of a flap for those of you worldwide the East Coast and out to Ohio of the United States invaded by cicadas this summer in the press plane had a near seven hour delay, according to Jonathan Lemire at The Associated Press out of Dulles Dulles is west of Washington, much more towards the farm fields of the cicadas. The president is moving east towards the Atlantic Ocean at Andrews Air Force Base or joint base. Andrews, the president here going to a G seven meeting, And as we heard earlier, this is someone very familiar with G seven. Politics Lease Abramowitz Ian Bremmer making very clear we couldn't have vice president more understanding of an Atlanticist approach, although the question is how much weight that will carry based on the actions. Of the United States based on President Trump's administration, and, frankly that it began several presidents before that, that the U. S started to depart from the the rest of the allies from the rest of the European continent. There is a question of what President Biden can do to restore those alliances at this point without some sort of material, legislative action, Tom images everything as he comes off Marine one where they wear dress blues, the pilot, the helicopter.

"What it feels like watching the vice president down in Central America. He's got a point. He does because he heard her in the first clip where she said, You have to go to where the problem is. You have to go. The biggest to be with those people. You have to get to meet those people and you know, but she won't go to the border where all the problems are and the guns are being smuggled in and the Mm. I don't get it in case I tried. I do get it. I do. I do get it. It's all it's all narrative. It's political. It's optics, and she's not. She's really not very good at it. No, no, especially not after this interview with Lester Holt, right, exactly. She was asked by Lester Holt on NBC when she would be visiting the border. People been talking about that for 75 more than more than two months, right? And here's Here's her answer. Do you have any plans to visit the border? At some point, you know? We are going to the border. We've been to the border. So this whole this whole this whole thing about the border? We've been to the border. We've been to the board. You haven't been to the border. And I haven't been to Europe and I mean, I don't know. I don't understand the point that you're making. I'm not discounting the importance of the border. A couple things here props to Lester Holt because he heard the stammering he heard of that We've been we've been and he came back with You haven't been right. And then to what you didn't see, because you're just listening on the radio. Right now. We're on your phones or your Google device when she said that she threw her hands up in the air, and she laughed and said, Well, I've never been to Europe like she visually shrugged it off. And that's what people are saying, like. Well, this isn't a laughing matter of madam vice president. And she's she's so flustered. With the fact that she is being criticized for not going to the border that she's coming up with these. What's your problem? Why can't she just say No, I haven't been to the border yet, since, uh, since I was appointed to deal with this by the president. And we're going to look into it and perhaps we will. That's the That's all she has to do is that's all she has to do is not avoid the question. Lester Holt also asked this follow up. I know Republicans have certainly commence you on this, but Democratic Congressman Quay are As a border district is said to the you and the president comes. You can see this does not care about what's happening at the border. Okay, that's nice, and that's go back to Senator Cornyn. If you care about it, why are you watching the house next to you burned out. You know what I mean and go into the other neighbor. It's just it's it's not adding up. But perhaps we ought to be looking into news from Mexico City to find out what the president of Mexico has to say about their meeting. That's That's what the not a bad I Nicaraguan press because we may find more more answers. There's in terms of what she's what she's done. What she's learned. She's discussed. Yeah. I don't know. Uh President Biden had a busy couple of days by the way, but he decided to break off negotiations on the infrastructure building over the last week or so. He's been working with Senator Shelley Capito out of West Virginia Republican About how much to spend where to get this money. And he finally said Thanks, but no thanks. I don't like where you guys are coming from. So it looks like the again we talked about politics with Kamala Harris going to the border. I think all these negotiations even though they've been said in good faith, which is said we have to clarify. Oh, these are good faith negotiations by the way. I don't think they really had any. Your hopes of meeting somewhere in the middle here? No, no, I'm actually surprised that President, uh, put an end to the conversation and I would guess that congressional Republicans, we happy about that. It's looking like, you know, they're digging in and he's and they're not gonna budge. Texas Democrats hope to turn Texas Blue in 2022. How long have you been talking about this? Oh, uh, couple decades. We had 10 years 15 years. Yeah, so they've got a voter registration drive aimed at registering two million people. And it's called Project Texas. That's the name of the organization. That's initiative that would, uh, rev up of $1.7 Million initiative to be the largest voter registration program attempted. By Democrats. That's fine, you know, like, do it to get people to vote. No problem with that. That's that's democracy. The more people that vote the better. We are as a country represented. But you can register them to vote. But you can't make them go vote, you know, And that's that's always been. The biggest problem with Democrats, especially here in Texas, is that their turnout is on isn't always the best exactly so Yeah, and Governor Abbott proclaiming that everything that needed to be done was done. He signed two bills yesterday that would make sweeping changes to the state's electricity grid and leadership of the grid. The haircut. Electric Reliability Council of Texas, So hopefully this is going to help out. The governor seems to think it's a good thing and that this is going to prevent the kind of emergency crisis that we had the in February. I hope so that that's all we can really say. Right? I mean, it's already happened, and now they're you know, after the fact signing legislation trying to prevent it But we have no physical, tangible proof that everything's gonna be better next time. All we can tell you for sure is it's not going to increase your taxes in any way and that the market board Will be made up of Texans for a change. I'm in on that. Yeah, well, that's a step in the right direction. President is headed to Europe that's coming up in our news at the bottom of the hour right now, 7 25. It's traffic.

"And Senator Shelley Capito, uh, broke down, the president said that we're not going to be able to get anywhere, so he moved on and here's what Senator Capital said afterwards. I am extremely disappointed because we offered the president Basically what he asked us to do. The first time we met with him, which was a trillion dollars over eight years, including baseline spending, and that it wouldn't include a tax increase and heat. Those were our That was our red line. Not his. And the last offer that I got from the president had For tax increases in it. I mean, it's kind of like the border thing where it kind of just feels like we're putting on a front and we knew all along they were Democrats weren't going to budge. You had some Republicans Captain Senator Capital said. Yeah, we were going to get 20 or so Republicans to support something in the middle here. But President Biden, you blew it and you're you wouldn't budge. So that's why I think it's just a front. I mean, the Democrats have the power. They can do whatever they want. They're trying to appear like they're doing good faith negotiations, but What they want. The bottom line is the number. I mean, right, And the Republicans have said, Let's take all that leftover covid relief money that we didn't spend. And let's use that and and Biden in his administration said No. We're going to raise taxes, and that's where the rubber lies. Yeah. Let's get back to Governor Abbott just for a moment here, signing two bills to make sweeping changes to the state's electric grid and leadership of the system. Just, uh Let's see. Bottom line, he said, is that everything that is needed to be done was done to fix the power grid in Texas. And so I guess that's good news. I don't understand why reducing the number of people in the ERCOT board was part of the solution. Really see what that has to do with anything, but they are. Yes, I guess too many cooks in the kitchen. You know if you've got too many Voices on just a bureaucratic type board you It's harder to get stuff done. At least compromise. Be just it'll be helpful just to have members of the aircraft board who actually live in Texas for a change, right. So, uh, now all the power companies are supposed to winterize And the problem is, it's gonna take about six months for this to get figured out for the specifics to be written out, right? Hopefully, it'll be a mild winter. Next. We're ready for Alyssa Milano to run for Congress. Oh, sure, Why not? In California? Uh And I could see this actually working because she I know this district very well. Do you tell them the fourth district quick? Well, it's in the it's in the Sierra. It's in the mountains. Uh, it goes, uh, extends from Truckee, which is just Is on the way to, uh to, uh, Lake Tahoe. From Truckee. So it's just opposite South Lake Tahoe. What's the political leaning of this district? Conservative? Really? Down to Kings Canyon National Park. So listen, we have a lot of ranchers. You got a lot of ranchers, and you have a lot of people that are in big business and so forth. So listen. Alana wants to run for a spot in Congress in a conservative District of California now, saying conservative California it's not as conservative as it as it would be here. For example, Tom McClintock is Is the congressman in that district. He's uh He's been there for quite a while. And, uh, I don't. I don't see him getting Getting kicked out of their certainly not by Alyssa Milano. Right, You know she's going to. She's the new breed of movie stars and celebrities who decided it would be fun to be, uh, be a politician. I think Karen Caitlyn.

"When your home is on fire and watching as they hose down your neighbor's house instead, That's what it feels like watching the vice president down in Central America. Take it a step further. It's almost like it would be like calling 911 while your house is on fire, and then the firehouse department going to the other house While your house is still on fire being like, Okay, maybe we should tell people to leave their gas off. Maybe we should make sure people's linens are Yeah, it's just it's crazy. While it seems crazy, it does. And I believe she did say when she was pressed a little bit too, You know? Well, yeah, yeah. Are you Are you going to go to the border yourself? And she said yes. Well, but That's pretty much where it lies right? And when she got back, she did an exclusive interview with NBC's Lester Holt about this. And this this response from Kamala Harris. It's bothering people on both sides. I said this yesterday, too. If you somehow manage to make both parties upset, you're doing something wrong as a politician, and she's doing that. This is what she said to Lester Holt. Do you have any plans to visit the border? At some point, you know? We are going to the border. We've been to the border. So this whole this whole this whole thing about the border? We've been to the border. We've been to the border. You haven't been to the border. And I haven't been to Europe. I don't. I don't understand the point that you're making. I'm not discounting the importance of the board and threw her hands up in the air during the and said, Well, I don't know I haven't been to Europe. You can just hear the way she was stammering through the first part of her answer that the answer is no. I'm not going to the border. I'm not going to let people take my picture standing there in front of a bunch of cages with people in them. People that showed up because because this is the way we're going to deal with it. And, uh, I guess Lester Holt asked a follow up question. He didn't just let it lie there. I know Republicans have certainly commend you on this. But Democratic Congressman Quasar has a border district has said to you and the president come. You can't see this and I care about what's happening at the border them. Why don't you ask? That's why you're seeing a lot of Republicans really ticked off about this. Some people are saying it was a vacation that she treated it more like a vacation more than an actual fact finding mission to solve a problem. That all right? Uh, looks like talks have broken down between the president and the Republicans in the Senate on the infrastructure spending plan, the one that the president wanted to $3 trillion for and now the Republicans have countered with something less than two billion or something like that. They're right. No, not two billion. It was it was, uh, 920,000,000,900 less less than a trillion. That's what I was trying to think. Anyway. Discussions between the White House and Senator Shelley Capito, uh, broke down, the president said that we're not going to be able to get anywhere, so he moved on and here's what Senator Capital.
"shelley capito" Discussed on Start Here
"It's monday june seventh. The most powerful man in washington has spoken the president. Vitamins listening restart here. Tension among democrats reaches a boiling point. It really tells you everything that you really need to know about the power of one. Why joe mansions decision on voting rights could be the one that defines the future of these forty. The former president says he's not here to make friends with facebook from now on they're going to treat politicians the same as anybody else on the platform put who needs home in this relationship. Is it the principle of the thing or is it the mexican flag. And i heard her say you can't wear that. At what point does address code violation. Become a reason for police to remove a student from his own graduation from abc news. This is start here. I'm brad milkey throughout the week. The big question in washington will continue to be is what's happening between president biden and congressional republicans just posturing are both sides actually searching for an agreement on a monumental infrastructure package or are they searching for a way to say. We tried before doing what everyone actually expects them to do. President set to meet again tomorrow. Which senator shelley capito but the two sides are still quite far. Apart with these deadlines looming democrats have problem. Think about it in the senate. They've got fifty votes. Exactly president biden took his initial infrastructure proposal. Offer way down from above a two trillion dollar price tag to less than two trillion. He still just had fifty votes. He's out taking his offer way way down and he might have what fifty four votes soup. Progressive democrats are. What are we doing like we might not even get to sixty regardless of aloe we go. Let's just push this through our selves with the barest of bear majorities. We need a bipartisan infrastructure. Bill we most definitely need that and the problem in that math equation west. Virginia senator joe manchin because joe manchin hates the idea of excluding republicans without joe mansion. You might not even have that. Fiftieth vote and that applies to everything will yesterday. Joe manchin appeared to shut the door. On what progressives consider a existential political imperative. Abc's congressional correspondent. Rachel scott starts us off this morning in washington. Rachel people have call him president mansion usually as a compliment. Why did this seem to reach a boiling point this week. Old brad even before we get into all of this news this weekend. I mean we have to talk about infrastructure. This is the bill that president biden has been pushing but infrastructure is important. Because it really tells you everything that you really need to know about the power of one. When the senate is split fifty fifty and that one person is senator. Joe manchin an infrastructure. Something's been delayed for far too long. Bypassed administrations so. It's time for us to move forward. Senator joe manchin. He's from west. Virginia this is traditionally a red state. But he is a democrat and voters will tell you on the ground. One thing that'd be really like about mansion is that even though he's a democrat in this red state that he's willing to work with republicans he's really willing to reach across the aisle. So bottom line here and we think we can find a pathway for. We're not that far apart. He told me that he believes that. It's now time to start concentrating on where the two sides agree which is traditional in core infrastructure roads and bridges and work on getting that passed. But here's the issue now. Progressives like bernie sanders and afc say. It's long past time to hold out hope for these negotiations. It's time for democrats to put this on the floor and pass it on their own. Yeah i hear that. We hear that. The president doesn't agree even though president biden is less than six months into his term. This is really a crucial time for democrats if democrats don't go big then guess what voters are going to say. Come home because you're not able to deliver you have progressive democrats. Who say now is the time to go big. Don't hold back pass. The most progressive policies while you still have the majority and before the midterms when they have this chance of possibly losing the majority in congress and that brings us to the issue of voting rights laws that put in place by republicans fifteen years ago and they were perfectly satisfied with you. Tell those laws until they were used successfully by people color. This is a full-fledged assault on voting rights democrats say right now democracy is at stake voters casting their ballots in person must show a photo. Id in we should consider applying that same standard to mail in ballots. there is a new provision. That was snuck into this bill under the cover of darkness last night that would literally allow judges to overturn elections if there are allegations of fraud their message messages now is time for congress to act because our hands simply tied here so this brings us back to the control in congress democrats. They insist that this could become a defining moment for who has the majority in congress and who has the power to sink or push through really key legislation. I'll i see so you got progress has being like this isn't fair radical joe manchin. If you don't support these pretty big ambitious voting rights laws that we want to pass well. Republicans will end up taking a bunch of elections next november. And guess what all of a sudden. We don't control the house of the senate. You don't get a compromise bill. You don't get any bill so you really need to get on board with what's going to be seen as a partisan thing whether you like it or not right exactly so they morning. The charleston gazette newspaper this is mansions hometown newspaper back in west virginia. He wrote this op. Ed and hugh centrally says that he is not supporting the voting rights. Bill that the majority of all democrats are behind the bill. That senator chuck schumer is actually going to bring to the floor in just a few weeks. We'll senator let's talk about voting rights. How did you reach this decision. What move the needle here seeing what happened yesterday. Also watch this and brad he. He actually broke this news semi last month. I remember we were all covering liz. Cheney being ousted from leadership and his office called us he said that he had news to make on the issue voting rights. And at the time. It wasn't really on people's radars as much so many people now still believe voting. The voting tabulation was done. It wasn't that is a lot we know it was done correctly. And so big pitcher here. Democrats are pushing two pieces of legislation. One is a very big sweeping bill called before the people act. This is the one that chuck schumer wants to bring to the floor and the senate for a vote in the john lewis voting rights act if we imply that to all fifty states and territories at something that can be done. It should be done. It could be done bipartisan. And then there's a much narrow measure called the john lewis voting rights act and that is the one that joe manchin is behind why not support the larger legislation. The larger bill for the people at the larger bill is encompassing so much more than just voting and that should be done in other pieces of legislation. But you can't have a bill that you have no bipartisanship on when it comes to voting and brad. This is really hitting our of this week. This democracy that we have just an experiment Been with us a long long time but it's not perfect. We know that representative jim. Clyburn has personally been trying to explain to senator joe manchin why. The issue of voting rights is so important to minority communities across this country. And tomorrow senator. Joe manchin is going to be meeting with civil rights leaders including the president of the n. double acp. They say now is the time to act on this and they're really hoping to change his mind. President biden says he's meeting with republicans again on counter counter counter offers and infrastructure. You seem like just after the election. We were talking about this idea. That joe manchin really could hold the keys to washington..
"shelley capito" Discussed on This Week with George Stephanopoulos
"Morning and welcome to this week as we head towards summer. President biden is preparing. His first overseas trip had into europe for the g. Seven a visit with the queen and his i. Some russian president vladimir putin were that spate of cyber attacks targeting. Our daily life will be at the top of the agenda here at home biden. Hasn't given up. Hope for a bipartisan. Deal on infrastructure. But he's facing pressure from progresses to go it alone as republican votes prove elusive and the latest unemployment report shows that our economy is in creating quite as many new jobs as expected commerce. Secretary gina raimondo is standing by to address these issues. I get a better sense of where things stand from our senior white house correspondent. Mary bruce and mary let's start with those infrastructure. Talks the president set to meet again tomorrow which. Up be senator shelley capito but the two sides are still quite far. Apart with these deadlines looming they are george and look. Both sides have shown a willingness to budge here but not nearly enough to reach a deal. They are still far apart on the scope of this plan and how to pay for the president has now rejected. The latest republican counteroffer to come up. Fifty billion dollars in spending and republicans have dismissed the president's latest offer to pay for all of this by implementing a fifteen percent minimum corporate tax rate on those companies. That now pay little or nothing now. The white house will tell you. There are no firm deadlines here but there is a very real sense to time is running out. The president is facing increasing pressure for members of his own party. Moderates who want him to strike a compromise and those progressive members were encouraging him to go it alone and do this with just democratic support on the hill we know they are reading options to do just that well here at the white house. The president continues to work the phones reaching out to members of both parties and tomorrow he will sit down with senator capito the lead republican negotiator and mary the administration has also wrote the cyberattacks this week. The fbi director christopher wray compared the challenge posed as a tax to nine eleven. George the white house views this as an urgent national security threat. Even though many of those being targeted are private companies these hackers have increasingly shown that they are capable of disrupting major parts of american life and the white house is now urging companies to take action now saying no company is safe. The president has made clear he feels that russia bear some responsibility for these bad actors. We know he plans to push putin on cybersecurity when they meet face to face next week. The president told me this week that he is considering his options for retaliation. George the white house says no option is off the table. Mary bruce thanks very much. Just bring the secretary of commerce gina raimondo. Right now secretary raimondo. Thanks for joining us this morning. Good morning to be with you. Let's start with these cyberattacks eight attacks every day in the united states right now. They're targeting food charting gas or television or water supply. Does the government have to do more to force. Businesses protect themselves and their customers. So i think the first thing we have to recognize this is the reality and we should assume and businesses should assume that these attacks are here to stay if anything will intensify and so just last week. The white house sent out a letter. Broadly to the business community urging the business community to do more the thing. The only good news here george. Is that some very simple steps. Like two factor authentication having proper backups and backup technology can be enormously helpful against a wide variety of these attacks so it is clear that the private sector needs to be more vigilant by the way including small and medium sized companies and also president biden has been clear that we are going to do more in fact certain components of the american jobs plan provide for investments to shore up the nation cyber infrastructure. Which is just another reason. Why it's so important that the j. p. passes but should the government be requiring these steps by businesses. You know. I think that as i said at this point we are urging businesses businesses. Know how to do this. It's relatively inexpensive to do the simpler things like two factor authentication and at the moment we're going to pursue that versus what you're talking about a little bit more heavy handed approach. We know that significant significant number of these attacks emanating from russia is it time for the administration to take a more aggressive approach and target the source of these attacks. Well as i said this is a top priority and again the president has been clear he we are evaluating all of the options and we won't stand for A nation supporting or turning a blind eye to criminal enterprise and as the president has said. We're considering all of our options and we're not taking anything off the table as we think about possible repercussions consequences or retaliation. That's the national support. Choubey be contemplating military action even if these are private not government entities as. They said all options around the table. This is a top priority and all of us in the cabinet and national security council are focused on it and considering all possible consequences this week when the president meets with putin and other world leaders this will be at the top of the agenda. Let's talk about the infrastructure. Talks the president. You as i said senator capito tomorrow and the infrastructure talks is this week. Do or die for a bipartisan deal. No this is not do or die. You know yourself that you know. The the practice of legislating is much more art and science. There's no one better at it than president biden. I know from my time as governor. It's a messy process. So that no it's not do or die. There's no hard wired deadline. We are doing the work of legislating. This is a big week. You'll see in the house this week. Congressman defazio is moving forward. Starting to legislate on a piece of legislation that incorporates. Many the president's priorities we will also at the same time. Continue our talks with members of the senate. I can tell you george. I have spoken with many legislators in the senate republican and democrat. There is broad. Desire to have bipartisan agreement. That is good for the country. The president is leading us to continue to stay at the table. So we won't do this forever but right. Now they're good faith efforts on both sides and we're going to continue the work of doing our job and trying to get a bipartisan agreement. As you know a lot of democrats. Have a sense of deja vu. They say this reminds them of the experience. The president obama's experience with healthcare. Back in two thousand. I tried and tried and tried for a bipartisan deal. Basically the clock almost ran out on him and now progressives like bernie sanders an eeoc. It's long past time to hold out. Hope for these negotiations. It's time for democrats to put this on the floor and pass it on their own..

"shelley capito" Discussed on What A Day
"On today's show. Republicans are expected to block. Bipartisan commission to investigate the january. Six right at the capital plus we'll have headlines but first the latest like when we brought electricity to every household in the country nineteen thirties or we connected the country to the interstate highway system in the fifties. They created millions of jobs. Good paying jobs. They set the economy to grow more quickly shared prosperity more broadly for decades to come. Yeah so that was. President biden in ohio yesterday. Making the case for the country to reinvest in that kind of infrastructure that he is talking about when he said that they did that. The thirties there was a part of the. The thought was at him in particular. I you know. I i let that subside giddy. We haven't checked in on the president's proposed one point seven trillion dollar infrastructure bill in a longtime and we are now reaching the self imposed deadline of memorial day that the white house had set for negotiations. So let's breakdown where things are at the moment. Beginning with this republican counterproposal yesterday. Yeah this was the big talk of the town. So west virginia senator shelley capito presented the owned package here worth about nine hundred twenty eight billion dollars and some of the things in it include over five hundred billion for roads and bridges almost one hundred billion for public transit over fifty billion for airports and then billions for broadband and some other things but this is also like half of what biden wanted. So what was the reaction to these cheapskates. Purses open them bags That's basically what the white house said. They i indicated that the counter offer could lead to more negotiations next week. Perhaps pass this target date of memorial day while not seeming Particularly enthused by all of this and then a bipartisan group including senator mitt. Romney is also expected to come up with their own plan that i guess could hypothetically keep conversations going but at this point senate democrats specifically are getting impatient and sound close to walking away soon as an example here senator warren on msnbc yesterday. I don't really think this is a serious counteroffer first of all. They don't have pay for us for this. It's not real. They have this illusory notion of how we're going to take money that's already been committed to other places and other spending day Lose eight in it. Are there any indications on what the white house is willing to pare back and it goes. Hopefully it's nothing but is there anything. Yeah there are actually so biden's bill. Currently at one point seven trillion with a t is over five hundred billion less than what was. Actually i put on the table here so the white house took out some of the money devoted to broadband for example and reduced proposed spending on highways among other things. And even at that stage progressives in the senate were already preparing and some cases actually kind of maybe hoping for starting the budget reconciliation process for this thinking. That a bipartisan. Deal is just not going to work not way to happen. And beyond even the differences in numbers that we're talking about that are attached to these various proposals. The ideas of how to even pay for are even more different so for one thing. This new republican offer actually only put forward about two hundred fifty seven billion in new funding. That's the big astros on this. That's because republicans wanna pay for most of the bill by repurposing money from the most recent pandemic relief law. They're not even coming up with new stuff and the white house is not cool with that. And from the biden side of things. They've talked about tax increases on corporations and the wealthy to pay for the infrastructure bill which unsurprisingly republicans are not cool with either mean. I think that they should just try to be cool. That quite frankly just just want. But it's like So we go into next week still somewhat close to where this whole process began. Okay so this is how things are going between the white house and republicans but what more are we hearing from other democrats about limit. Yeah that is another wrinkle in here as well so there at least two other things that progressives are focused on getting included here but importantly they've also gotten a huge range of support from across the party for them so one is going after a big expansion of medicare in the infrastructure package by lowering the eligibility age to sixty from sixty five. The also wanted to cover things like dental and vision and allow the program to negotiate drug prices. This is all to get the president's follow through on a campaign promise to end the benefits and more than one hundred and fifty house. Democrats are on board with this idea as well as something. Like twenty senators. Well there you go you know. I just feel like they can retire. Finally maybe we'll get some new blood in the damn congress. That's exactly why they're doing it out of the second thing. The progressives want here is a push from over two hundred house. Democrats to get strong labor sanders attached to any clean energy projects that are funded by this plan that includes among other things like codifying union rights which is part of a bill that we've talked about before at the pro act. It's actually possible. That house democrats might not support an infrastructure package that does not have these labor sands attached to them. But we'll see all right so last thing on a busy few days here for the vitamin station. The president is expected to propose an overall budget plan to day. What do we know about it. Yeah it's supposed to be around six trillion dollars set for twenty two but it just includes some of the major proposed bills that we've talked about like the infrastructure plan and the education and families plan but this was all amounts to the highest federal spending since world war two reporting from places like the new york times additionally they also said that biden is going to call on congress to create a public option for healthcare as part of this overall proposal and expressed support for that medicare plan that we just mentioned so that is a fast and furious overview of where this all stands going into the weekend. We will update you. When you get back. Do not worry at all if you are respective Grilling occasions that you're going to have but akilah there's even more news out of dc these past few days the january six commission. What does the word there as we go to record on thursday night. Republican officials in our senate are expected to use the filibuster to obstruct the creation of a bipartisan commission. To investigate the january six insurrection attempt that led to the record. Second impeachment of a president on the right. The only support for the investigation came from collins. Murkowski in romney. Joe manchin destroyer. Your government trudge just like atlas and this is especially damning not just because this happened less than six months ago and not just because several people were killed not just because republicans are still telling the big live. the election was stolen and there hasn't really been accountability but also because some capital police officers and the family of the officer who died the next day. We're not enough to sway them. That's right the conservative party believes that blue lives matter only to shut up. People who wanna say black lives matter in this country. Not like in any real way Some conservatives met with the fallen officers family and weren't convinced that investigation into the death of american serving. The government at the hands of alleged treasonous was worthwhile. Yeah and i think the big question here is why republicans so reticent to investigate a day that also happen to them. Yeah well for starters they come out of it. Look like assholes more than being assholes. They look like sore losers. They complain about mail. Voting even though trump voted by mail. They wanted to keep counting votes in arizona but stopped counting votes in pennsylvania or vice versa even remembers at this point and they just lost the senate literally the night before so rehashing that for the public might not make them seem like the patriots they really want to be seen as this memorial day or independent or the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven or the upcoming midterm elections but those elections. I can't see how a commission that might happen at the same time as any worse than say donald being actively investigated and almost certainly being charged for tax fraud by the state of new york in relation to all of his business dealings in those seven hundred dollars in taxes. Trust me. He's going to be asking republican candidates if they think the charges are phony or not i can almost guarantee it. They're going to have to answer for it so without a bipartisan commission is all hope thorough investigation lost here nah so to the republicans absolutely not a congressional committee can still hold hearings and issue subpoenas and the feds can and still are investigating charging people over it. Big loss here is simply that the political theater having people sit and testify before the country is unlikely. We'll be talking about the failed insurrection. Attempt and the deaths of the officers at the capitol perpetuated by former.

"Kind of example and interesting scene for the american Israeli relationship. Now my my point though jake is every set of stories is a mirror on the american media last week including me i had congresswoman cheney on to talk about the split in the gop over her comments. And i covered it like everybody other covered it. But of course beltway manhattan media just piled on. They couldn't get enough of cheney versus the party this week. There are more democrats that are anti israel than there were republicans who were pro. Cheney and i've seen one new york times story about the fact that they've got a problem in the democratic party in that they have a pretty solid group of american jewish voters who are now confronted with one party that is uniformly pro israel and another that his split and not merely split deeply split. Now i don't think it's fifty fifty and it gets more like twenty eighty. Maybe twenty five seventy five with the anti-israel vote but afc until leib and that gang is really anti israel. I'm not even sure this. you know. They support the right of israel to exist. Someone should ask them that. Whether or not there with a moss on the map question has anyone. Have you seen any reporting on that. I've not I think they've said their pro their right. They they believe in the right to israel to exist. I think they just take issue with parties. I don't know. Jake i honestly. I haven't seen him ask. Because i think most of us take most of us in the mainstream you are. I believe that. Israel's got a right to exist on. Hamas is terrorist organization. But when asked about that. Afc sidestepped whether or not hamas a terrorist organization. And i do believe because of the general. Partisan nature of every story are elite. Media is not pushing this rump group of democrats. So anti israel i mean. They're very anti israel to accountability on this corey bush until all our citizens are safe until all our children are safe. We will continue fight for rights in palestine and in ferguson. I mean that's just It's almost like they're left. Wing has gone off a cliff. Listen you know. Remember a couple years ago Years bond together it was twenty eighteen To leave and rushes to leave and and ilhan omar where i think banned from going into israel Which was a yes. It definitely an interesting interesting experience and I think even the democratic leadership spoke up against against the Against on yahoo for banning them from israel so anyway it it is a it is a very interesting situation. But you're right. I mean questions needs to be asked and this is going to be. I mean we've written and we have a top this morning about about The splitting the democratic party. And how it's uncomfortable hand. We have been covering this for days. So i anticipate we will continue to. I was looking at punchbowl news today and no one knows so. It's not there. Where are we on the counter. Offer that shelley capito senator capital of west virginia is charged with providing team biden with a counteroffer to their two point one trillion.

"To Saturday night on the circle on ninety three W. why BC some of the most nefarious legislative elements to emanate from the post nine eleven world war the government's domestic spying efforts unleashing an entire let their governmental behemoth to empowering them with new powers to spy on the American people and delve into their personal and private information turns out portions of that those bills fives I in this case were re authorized over the past week and I believe that escaped many people's notice you listening to Saturday night on the circle I'm your host Ethan Hatcher joined as always by Dr David professor of political science at the university of Indianapolis okay now this measure failed to pass the U. S. Senate by a single vote Hey amendment was offered up by two amendments was offered up to H. R. sixty one seventy two and that that bill re authorizes lapse surveillance powers under the foreign intelligence surveillance act the amendment was offered by senator Ron Wyden of Oregon and senator Steven Daines of Montana and it would force the government to get a warrant before obtaining the internet search history of Americans under section two fifteen of the FISA act the government can compel phone companies and internet service providers to turn over such data if dean vaguely relevant to a terrorism or counter wrist espionage case so basically using the secret court and other mechanisms that you know the the government put into place in the post nine eleven world now the F. B. I. can surreptitiously gather your data without a warrant well they still can yeah they still can yeah because there's this amendment failed to pass it needed sixty votes and it fell just one vote shy of that threshold mainly because not all of us senators participated in the vote give me a chance has filibuster correct got filibusters twenty seven Republicans voted against it and ten Democrats so I mean let's I'll think about it like I understand why you would want these kind of surveillance powers because if they're used properly then they can really keep Americans safe against terrorism counterterrorism bye there is always that you you know ability to abuse this kind of power well I think the evidence of abuses is in place that you know the NSA has spied on more American citizens then it is it you know divulged as beyond she and her family true what he worked for the trump campaign would probably say this thing's been abused you know all these little secret warrants that they they did get worse I guess through the FISA court but you know the secret warrants that were based on bogus dossiers absolutely and that yeah the FISA court is specifically have been empowered in the early days against the trump administration by the Democrats who are seeking to investigate off of you know there's fraudulent claims so yeah this is why this is important because it's very ugly stuff in empowering this unit here to urge the entity to gather your data is very important potentially prompt that problematic and right now Y. and in the cove in world now we're talking and to states are doing contact tracing where they're looking into your phone I mean we're looking at new privacy issues that are going to be a rising you know this is an old one from nine eleven now we'll have this contact tracing thing from co video you know it's just that it's that nineteen eighty four the big TV screen that big brother who is always looking at you yeah and in the interest of full disclosure here the senators who believe that the F. B. I. shouldn't need a warrant to spy on you the American citizen John berasa Marsha Blackburn Roy blunt John Boozman Richard Burr Shelley capito Susan Collins John Cornyn Tom cotton deb Fischer Lindsey Graham Cindy Hyde Smith James Imhoff Ron Johnson and James Lankford sorry Lankford at Mitch McConnell David Perdue rob Portman Pat Roberts Mitt Romney Marco Rubio Richard Shelby John Thune Thom Tillis Thom Tillis Patrick J. Toomey Roger wicker Todd young and on the Democrat side Thomas Carper Robert Casey Diane Franken Feinstein of Margaret wood Hassan Doug Jones Tim Kaine Joe Manchin and Jean Shaheen and mark Warner and lastly Sheldon Whitehouse what a great name for a politician what was that right there was just some sort of unconscious hit list that you're put out for these people this is not a hip what absolutely not the first of all they're well protected in the halls of Congress also I said unconscious but but no this is the in the interest of full disclosure because you should know where your representatives stand and these representatives believe that the F. B. I. should need a warrant to spy on you as evidenced by their vote which is a matter of public record sure I'm not putting out a list on anybody and I kind of resent the information that that whatever be the case okay so I guess I don't I don't advocate violence against our elected officials I'm not saying that at if I meant unconscious well yeah and noticed if for art for our state Indiana you've got Todd young who is against you know is still up for let people spy on people and Mike Braun voted in any other way so our senators split which is good to see some some healthy descends from our representatives now this is also important because it comes at a time when internet usage has skyrocketed as millions of Americans are quarantine due to crow that nineteen pandemic privacy advocates are warning for over a decade allowing warrantless access to web queries and browsing history allows law enforcement to easily crack down on activist labor organizer essentially anyone that the government deems to be a threat like you were saying the looming presence of Big Brother spying on every aspect of your life and I think that should be opposed absolutely I mean this is what Orwell was right now he wrote back in nineteen forty eight this is what he was talking about where you've got this perpetual spice state well and you can see the the absolute inability of government entities or organizations that they empower as the case of the fed to you you know to oversee these operations as a matter of fact because of the statements that Federer's chairman Jerome Powell made on Wednesday the U. S. stock market took a pretty severe tumble dropping a few percentage points on the Dow Jones industrial average and continuing to darken the the forecast for investors in the future and that's what stocks are all about is kind of the the Prost Bective of what it will be and when you're you know ruffling the feathers of investors that's the natural result is a decline sure so you know when you're empowering a government individuals or and and the the case the fed organizations with that level of authority to interfere with your life publicly privately to spy on you you know that's the kind of thing that we should be pushing back against and need to be putting our full attention towards and it's when we're distracted by issues like the corona virus and with the lockdowns in quarantine all this other stuff is when the government is most likely to you know trying to seize upon the moment remember you can never let a crisis go to waste to expand upon their powers that's an engine specially when people are looking there you go it's kind of like political magic trick you have the you know the purpose of an assistant in a magic show you know pay attention to right liver here don't the shiny object in my left hand don't pay any attention I'm doing with my right hand and by the way I'm right handed yeah and the other by the way their right hand is in your pocket or if you know in other places that are on the phone I'll be right there we go so get out there also in the news there's a there is a historic change that is made to the nature of Congress itself and the way that votes are allowed to take place pretty interesting discussion that we have queued up this evening for root of the matter so I encourage you to stay tuned to that you're listening to ninety three W.
