Facebook pledges to invest $1 billion in news after Australia standoff ends

"Facebook is defending its stance in australia saying that it has invested six hundred million dollars just since two thousand eighteen to support the news industry globally and it plans to spend at least a billion dollars or more over the next three years going forward quoting facebook's nick clegg the assertions repeated widely in recent days that facebook steals or takes original journalism for its own benefit always were and remain false. We neither take nor ask for the content for which we were being asked to pay a potentially exorbitant price. In fact newslink's are a small part of the experience. Most users have on facebook fewer than one post in every twenty-five five in your news feed will contain a link to a new story and many user say they would like to see even less news and political content. As tim burners lee the inventor of the world wide web warned. The australian law could make the internet as we know it unworkable. Arguing that it quote risks breaching a fundamental principle of the web by requiring payment for linking between certain content online and quote. Facebook is more than willing to partner with news. Publishers absolutely recognized quality. Journalism is at the heart of how open societies function informing and empowering citizens and holding the powerful to account.

Is Tether a Fraud? Its Bank Says It's Not

"Last weekend. A medium post by a pseudonymously former bitcoin investor going. By the name crypto anonymous made the rounds on crypto twitter and elsewhere it was titled the bit short inside cryptos doomsday machine and alleged that the stable coin tether which is supposed to be bagged one to one. Us dollars is a quote highly probable. Fraud there are a lot of different. Strands that crypto anonymous wove together to present his or her hypothesis. But the one. That was people's zoomed in on concerned whether or not tether is fully backed so tether is run by tether limited and limited bank is deltec which is out where you work and that's a bank based in the bahamas and the part of the peace that people are concerned with was a section where curcio anonymous showed some tables of the foreign liabilities of domestic banks. And here she wrote quote from january twenty twenty two september twenty twenty the amount of all foreign currencies had by all the domestic banks in the bahamas increased only by six hundred million dollars going from four point seven billion to five point three billion and so the bahamian dollar is pegged to the us dollar one to one so it's the same in us dollars. Then he or she wrote but during the same period. Total issued tethers increased by almost five point four billion going from four point six billion to ten billion so great. Can you explain why this discrepancy exists. Well i've seen that article. Actually i find it very interesting that there's someone that apparently have time. Perfectly buying and selling crypto actually is often the case those article of so-called experts. They usually have time to market like geniuses and then started claim scenes that are kind of unpacked especially in that case they went to that. I think it's the digest central bank of the bahamas and it became overnight a banker expert which i loved because we always look to recruit but in that case they didn't deal it further about how that works first of all. They should have known that the bahamas is what they call them. Offshore jurisdictions so what it means offered ratings soon as you have domestic bank and international banks into domestic banged there is to type of licensed linked to it. You have what they call the authorized dealer license and you'll try agent license deltec dual own authorize agent license which is a license that allowed him to custody. Bahamian don't have what we call an authorized dealer license so when it comes to cash on deposit we cannot old any in dollars cash deposit and at the same time because we cannot all those dollars. Behave in dollars. We cannot serve local customer so what we have is we have along that authorization license. We have an international bank license. Or i think it's called restricted license as well so in fact for that report and i'm sorry for that person because i guess he thought he was onto something. We are not a domestic bank for a reported deposit and actually if he went and the little effort to go indego bit about the size of the bahamian market of thinking would have found out that the entire massive banks have around two hundred billion dollars in assets. I believe and we are part of that. So we are not a domestic bank aside of authorized agent license but that is irrelevant business for us and maybe be much must be reported. We are an international bank and that is part of the international aspect. That's why i did answer it to some people asking but you are domestic within no because we cannot take domestic customer and we cannot hold domestic him daughters so that report is actually a nut relevant and nothing to be in there

Many In Flint Question Whether They'll Get Justice For Water Crisis

"According to multiple media reports michigan's former governor and other officials will be charged in relation to the flint water crisis seven years ago despite possible criminal charges. A lot of residents still question. Whether those officials will be held accountable. Michigan radio steve carmody reports. Nearly seven years ago government leaders here push the button that switch the city of flint drinking water source from detroit's water system to the flint river flag. The intent was to save money. The result was a complete disaster treated river water damage to pipes which then released lead and other contaminants into the city's drinking water eighteen months later. The water was switched back but the damage was done. Blood lead levels soared in young children. People were forced to use bottled water for drinking and washing clothes. The city was forced to rip out thousands of old pipes while testifying about the flint water crisis before congress. Four years ago former governor. Rick snyder acknowledged mistakes. State and federal officials failed the families of flint. Snyder was not among the fifteen state and local government officials face criminal charges for their handling of the crisis half of them pled guilty to lesser charges in exchange for no jail time and in two thousand nineteen michigan's new attorney general dropped charges against the remaining defendants citing problems with the original investigation. The investigation seemed over until yesterday when the associated press reported that several former government officials including former governor snyder. We'll be facing new charges. If that happens. Legal experts say it would be difficult case for prosecutors. Peter hammer teaches law at wayne state university in detroit. He says despite possible difficulty getting convictions. It's important to bring charges especially in an era where we're living where people are not being held accountable. This could be an important statement about the significance of the rule of law and that not even the highest public official in the state is going to get off. Scot-free a spokeswoman for former governor. Rick snyder calls the reports of impending charges a public relations smear campaign saying that if brought they would be meritless since during eighteen months of foul-smelling dirty tap water that made them sick flint residents have demanded justice and compensation a us district court. Judge is expected to decide in the coming days if she will give preliminary approval to a massive settlement agreement resolving most of the thousands of outstanding lawsuits last year. The state of michigan announced. It struck a deal with attorneys representing flint residents to pay six hundred million dollars into a settlement fund. A few months later the city of fled a local hospital and an engineering firm agreed to chip in another forty one million dollars. Nearly eighty percent of that money would be set aside for plaintiffs. who were young children or minors. During the crisis they are the ones most at risk for suffering long-term lead related health problems. But growing course of critics say it's not enough a group of flint. Civic and religious leaders led by pastor. John maclean gathered monday outside. The city's water plant to express concern about the settlement. We believe that the proposed settlement curly allocated is just as disrespectful as injury-cause by the water crisis tragedy itself in addition to tens of thousands of residents. There aren't the lawyers lots of them. More than one hundred forty took part in a zoom hearing with the judge last month. This is part of the challenge facing the judge how to divide a large pool of money without leaving some feeling victimized again. Flint's mayor says it's important. His residents have a belief in justice and developments. This week may help with that for npr news. I'm steve carmody in flint.

As Vaccine Approvals Loom, U.S. Funds A Back-Up Plan For Delivery

"When the time comes to vaccinate the world against cove in one thousand nine hundred and will there be enough glass vials and syringes to get it done. The trump administration appears to have a plan later. Today it's expected to announce that it will loan about six hundred million dollars to accompany in connecticut. Makes an injection device that can be mass produced. Here's dina ten of npr's investigations team. That's the sound of a covid nineteen vaccine backup plan. It's a production line in columbia south carolina. That's turning out a novel injection device that the trump administration is counting on to help deliver the covid nineteen vaccine as early as this spring. Npr's learn that later today the administration will add to its already hefty investment in a company called apogee systems america and extend more than half a billion dollars to its effort to backstop the country's covid nineteen vaccine program. I'm jay walker. And i am the chairman of abject systems and you founded another company. We've heard of right. yes i am. Best known as the founder of priceline dot com the founder priceline. The man who put william shatner back on the map is now producing a single use self contained injection device. That's designed to be an alternative to glass vials and syringes. We called a seret. It's a little bigger than your thumb and it looks a little like the single doses of eyedrops that you get from the eye doctor. It has a hypodermic needle. That you screw into the end like you do when you screw in a nozzle on a tiny bottle of crazy glue. Only in this case it would carry any number of approved. Covert vaccines walker said. It's that effort that the us international development finance corp. is funding with a five hundred and ninety million dollar loan. The us government is announcing a plan to support the biggest and fastest vaccine syringe filling factory up to three billion doses a year. That's billion with a b.

During the obama administration fit challenge that i see is that it is a completely untested technology. What testing of the applejack product has been done to ensure that the materials inside the epa jet containers don't interact with components of the various vaccines. The vaccine being produced by moderna for example needs to be kept it. Arctic temperatures walker says the epa jet devices can handle that but the fda has yet to certified that that's true but then you can say that about a lot of the projects funded by the trump administration to try to combat the virus.

I mean we could truly have a low cost scaled up pre filled system. That could be used for a number of different drugs or vaccines biologics. That could benefit low and middle income countries.

Mirati to Rival Amgen in Solid Tumors

"So to start I wanNA talk about exact sciences ticker symbol e x a s, and they are now trading at around twelve billion dollar market cap, and what they announced is liquid biopsy testing data in six different cancer types showing a sensitivity of eighty six percent and a specificity of ninety five percent, and they did kind of a grab bag of cancer types. We have lung ovarian, liver pancreatic, and Alpha Jill. And so I did video on exact sciences quite a while ago I thought their evaluation was a little bit toppy back then and was waiting for dipped to buy, and that's what I did during the Cova crisis I took a small position and then I sold just recently at around ninety four and I think is trading just over one hundred dollars right now but this. Is Nice to see them kind of moving into new areas because I think one of the things that they're struggling with is leaning on their old testing kit the colours guard while all these other companies are trying to get into things like liquid biopsy, which it's going to be a real game changer in the space. Once these treatments get validated and approved by the FDA. Now. They're not alone doing this exact sciences is kind of just finally getting into this because other big players like alumina through grail they just acquired this private company called grail officially officially. We've garden health personalisation of been floating around and invitations. Well, who just acquired archer DSL there's a lot of companies in the space, but exact scientists has shown some pretty good success in their previous testing kits. So it just makes sense them to jump into this new area and be a good competitor. So I think right now probably a little bit toppy with the price around one hundred but I'm pretty pleased with the small profit. I made given the number shares that I have. So that's exact sciences. Want to move now into regeneration ticker symbol. And they're trading at a sixty billion dollar market CAP. I did a video on them also a few months ago, looking at kind of their staples in terms of the different products that they offer and I concluded that they were relatively over-valued back. Then I think now also a little bit overvalued, but it does depend on how well their product. So and the kind of revenue they can bring in obviously but the news that we heard is that they released data on their antibody cocktail for covid nineteen. and. What we saw is that it reduced viral loads and symptoms versus placebo in non. Patients who are infected with SARS co to and what they shared our results from initial cohort of two hundred and seventy five patients, and they also have nine hundred or more patients enrolled. So this is kind of a preliminary analysis that they're showing US and they've called it a phase one, two, three trials. So they're doing the PK the safety along with the efficacy and other sorts of secondary outcomes all at once and when I look through their stuff, they started off by kind of categorizing patients based. On Sarah Negative or zero positive and I, think it's important that they do this because we're looking at a treatment for covid nineteen and if people are already sero-positive in their bodies, already mounted an antibody response in order to bring down viral loads. So what regeneration is trying to pose here is that the negative patients which means they have not mount that antibody response have significantly higher viral load and they make a better target for most treatments probably also their antibody cocktail that they're gonNA share data with. So. Then the data that they show here shows a range of efficacy based off of viral load. So we have tended the power of four copies, parallel all the way to tend to the seven copies personnel. So quite a big range in viral load here and I just blew this up on the screen. What we're seeing is that at the higher viral load, the treatment and there two different doses here in the green and the red line, we see that much more dramatic decrease in the amount of viral load in. These patients and it does kind of make sense because if your body's already mounted an antibody response, the window of efficacy is just going to be a bit smaller than if it's before the at which your body's manning response. So I think for these patients, it's definitely positive data. They also looked at other other metrics as well and I'm not going to get into everything but they did look at a day to alleviation of symptoms and they looked at the overall population of patients. It's the difference of nine with Placebo. To between six and eight, depending on the dose that they gave the antibody cocktail with the negative group alone, the placebo was thirteen days and then the low and high dose was six and eight respectively. So obviously a big difference when it comes to whether or not the patient is zero negative or positive. So that's probably going to inform the FDA when it comes to approving the drug or giving some kind of guidance on which patients should take the drug and who are likely to see more positive outcomes from that. So overall. I think it's good. It gets a step ahead of the Gilead data where I don't think we've even seen a placebo group yet. So it's nice to see regenerate actually do this placebo controlled trial. We can see whether or not there is efficacy and I, look forward to seeing the rest of the data I'm not if this merits taking a position regenerate here given that they're such a large company already and they have so many different assets that are I would say more likely to contribute to their bottom line. This doesn't entice me to take a position, but it's nice to see that we're getting all these therapies are starting to see vaccine data, and this just makes me feel better in general that we're going to move towards being able to treat this disease and hopefully get out from under this and then Kinda recover with the economy. With that, let's talk about the main story for today, and that is morality Therapeutics Ticker Symbol M rt ex, and they're trading at a price of one sixty, two point zero five per share giving them a market cap of seven point two, billion dollars. Their Q. Two, twenty, twenty, net loss was eighty, three, million dollars, and this represents an eighty percent increase year over year there their q two net current cash is six, hundred million dollars giving them a runway of about until twenty twenty two I would say but let's also be careful that if they see positive data. This year or next year is a good chance that they're going to raise again. And what Morad is trying to do is develop targeted cancer treatments and they're specifically looking at solid tumors and even more specific than that are K. Rasa inhibitors, and so they have to compounds Marta six, eight, four, nine, and x, one, three, three. They're also looking at checkpoint inhibitor resistance with their compound sicher Vance it, and I'll talk about that in a bit later. To start though we gotta talk about chaos and the reason why this is so important is that chaos mutations are present in a large population of cancer patients. The first thing it's important to note is that chaos is pretty ubiquitous. It's a critical part of the map kinase signaling pathway, and this is very important in basically every single cell. This pathways involved in Cell Proliferation Cell Survival had differentiation here. There's a whole bunch of other stuff and it makes a little bit confusing because it is involved in. So many different pathways that if you were just to inhibit this molecule non specifically, you're likely to see significant side effects with patients. It's for this reason that it's important that we can come up with a targeted therapy that will only target cells that have a mutation in chaos rather than the healthy normal. KS. To talk a little bit more about its function, it works as a GT as and what this means is that it takes a molecule GDP converts it to GDP using that phosphate group to continue the signaling pathway. The next step is Raff or something like that mutations in. A company twenty, one point, six percent of all human cancers, and then I have here that chaos the predominant or exclusive Rask's mutated in three of the top four neoplasms that account for cancer deaths in the US lung colon and pancreatic.

Finally, Airlines are Dropping Change Fees

"Wars daily on this September fourth. Happy Friday friends and happy. Labor. Day. Weekend. Labor, day, marks the end of summer for many of us an occasion for one last Hurrah barbecues pool parties in one last long weekend vacation perhaps this year well, most of us are staying home and the airlines have absolutely nothing to celebrate. Passenger levels are down seventy percent from a year ago, according to figures from the Transportation Security Administration looking financial disaster in the face, the airlines are trying to woo travelers back given the safety concerns that's proving difficult. So on Monday, United Airline CEO Scott Kirby took a startling and many would say welcome step here he is in a video announcement. Permanently getting rid of change vs on standard economy and premium tickets for travel within the US. Changes inevitable these days, but it's how we respond to change. That matters most. We hear from customers about where we can improve getting rid of this feat is often offered West and for good reason until now it could set you back two hundred to five hundred dollars to change a flight on one of the Big Three Airlines, United Delta or American sometimes that fee was more than the cost the original ticket simply the existence of that fee put all three airlines at a competitive disadvantage. To Southwest Airlines, which proudly boasts that it has never charge change fees or baggage fees, either which is another story well, now, non of the other airlines will either at least for domestic flights about twenty four hours after Kirby went public. American Airlines and Delta followed suit and canceled their domestic change fees as the Wall Street reports American went even further canceling their change fees for international flights to Canada Mexico, and the. Caribbean. Now, the question is, what will it cost them? US carriers earned close to three billion dollars from changing cancellation fees in two thousand, nineteen according to the US Transportation Department. All three major airlines in hefty amounts of money. American was I with more than eight, hundred, million dollars coming from vs Delta was close behind united took in more than six hundred, million dollars one might imagine that it could be hard for. The airlines to give up these fees after all about fifteen percent of their revenues come from the fact did travelers changed their minds united is burning through about forty million dollars a day and could cut up to thirty six thousand jobs by October first that according to CNBC. So you might think that every possible penny counts but if no one traveling anyway, well, it's

United scraps ticket change fees

"The most hated of all airline fees. Is the fee your charge to change your ticket? And never more than right now during corona virus where if somebody books a ticket to travel somewhere, they may later say, ooh, I really don't feel comfortable going. And that's why. The nation's airlines have followed the longstanding policy of South West. With. asterisks where you can buy a ticket now. On. Any US, airline and under Their straightjacket conditions. You don't lose the money. If you choose not to take the flight, you just gotTa meet all the rules jump through the right hoops and all that. But the reality is. Bit Airlines have only looked at what they make from change fees rather than how much business they ultimately don't get because they have changed fees in the first place. Let me explain. So I. Fly a lot on south. West Airlines. Until this year when I'm not flying anywhere because I'm in. Quarantine. Because a pre existing anyway. So I would fly typically in a year. I would take somewhere twenty five to thirty trips a year. Right, now I'm taking zero. So. I had a trip that I talked about. On the show last fall that change five times before I took it and I talked about how on the big three full fare airlines American united and Delta. I would have paid a thousand dollars and change fees before I ever left the ground. But because that was a ticket on south, west at paid zero in change fees. And so it's always been competitive market advantage for South West that they don't charge change fees that other airlines do. Well now, United Airlines. Has announced that they are eliminating change fees. Not Related to corona, virus, just eliminating change fees. On. All their airfares for domestic travel except. Basic economy basic economy is the one where we hate you but we'll take your money and let you fly. That has a long list of don'ts. And all that with basic economy, they have basic economy at the airlines so that their fares look lower. Than they really are. But anyway. As on United. Or going to have no change reason that this is something that upfront looks gutsy on United's part. Because according to the fads united collects over six, hundred, million dollars a year that goes straight to profit. From the change fee junk fee because the reality is. The cost for an airline somebody changing a flight. If any is just a couple of pennies. There's really no cost to the airline is just a junk fee. And so United's walking away from fifty million dollars a month. and. What they're not GONNA get in change fees but what they may well find. Is that people are more likely to book a ticket. Knowing that they can change it later without having to pay pay change fee. Now, we'll see over the course of this week. If The. Other two full fare airlines. American Delta. Follow United because often the three full fare airlines pretty much act like tweedle dee tweedle dum on what they do in terms of junk fees and nuisance fees and all that, and so we'll see and this will. Potentially. Erode. A huge market advantage four southwest airlines if airlines just blanket. Eliminate pretty much all the fares that are subject to junk fees united did not do so for international flights, but most people fly only domestic. So it it's not as much an issue for most people but. This is a very positive change. And I think back. That the junk fee for changing a flight for a long time was twenty five dollars. And then over the years the full fare ions got more more greedy kept raising it to the ridiculous two hundred dollar point and as travel writers pointed out repeatedly. Two hundred dollars change fee in most cases is higher than the fair bid a leisure travel or paid for their ticket in the first place.

No Mash, no apparent care of how many people showed in the place but that's the dance he's having to do yellowstone brings in more than six hundred, million dollars to its surrounding communities every year most of that in the summer nationally visitor ship to national parks generates more than forty billion dollars annually, and so even while there are concerns particularly around rural parks like yellowstone that outsiders may be bringing in more than just. Their pocket books during the pandemic it's a risk that many are willing to take and so foreign yellowstone it seems to be paying off definitely get for the business community I think that you know in May they may have thought that they might not make it through the end of the year, and now they're seeing record breaking numbers juries. PETKOFF is the executive director of Garner's Chamber of Commerce so far she says only. Two Park employees and three visitors have tested positive for COVID. She sure some have gone undetected, but the numbers thus far are encouraging. Typically visitation goes way slower October. So we only have more months to make it through. So I think everyone has kind of holding their breath and just hoping the community spread doesn't happen I. Don't think I've ever been in a summer that I wanted to end as quickly as this one. Camp Shali Superintendent of Yellowstone National Park. There's not a day that I come to work where fearful of multiple employees testing positive for having symptoms yellowstone like many national parks around the country is limiting its services this summer to try and protect employees and visitors closing campgrounds in some cases or visitor centers. Social distancing and masks are strongly encouraged outside of the post office yellowstone's headquarters to mask bear statues serve as a reminder. But the National Park. Service overall has not mandated face coverings. Charlie says most visitors are doing a good job of protecting themselves and others, but not always. So He's urging people if you're sick. Are you have symptoms or you're not sure do us all a favor and don't come to the park or anywhere else for that matter Nathan Rot NPR News Gardner Montana.

Conversation With Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson

"Delighted to welcome. To our program, a very important guests at this unbelievably strange time from the Mountain West Conference Commissioner Craig Thompson Commissioner thank you very very much for making the time I I, I can only imagine what your schedule is like. These days especially Zoom Bill Assuming there is one good afternoon. Paul good to be with you. You know I hope to mode no more about The next ninety minutes to two hours I have a four o'clock board calling five o'clock standing Monday de call, so we all compare notes and Kinda live by that old adage. God gave us two ears and one off for a reason, right? We're trying to learn from each other. Well we appreciate you making time I'm curious before we get down to some of the obvious questions Since, this occurred you. You've been very obviously active in in the NCAA, basketball tournament, having chaired the the men's basketball committee, and it all started there, and and I know in in your many many years is as commissioner. You've experienced so much but How do you? How do you prepare yourself for something like this? which is literally off the charts. Really is and you know again you don't because. no-one there might have been a few people worldwide They'd be well into their hundreds that were around nineteen eighteen. Spanish flu days, but For the most part, nobody's dealt with any of this Paul. So it's all new, and and it's It's disconcerting. It's hard. It's sad, but it's It's life and it's something we. We have to adjust to and and moved from. In as you get closer to what are really critical decisions, other conferences have made these choices many have not What what do you weigh as you're about to go onto? Another call here how how do you determine these things? Well, it's really got to beat a the safety and the health soccer you I think it's simply going to come down to what is the risk tolerance for for all the various groups just within our FBI subdivision and certainly there's. A rank and file and differences between the autonomous five leaks and a group of five leaks, but You've got you've got. A ton of governors. There's fifty state governors in that up BS group, one hundred thirty board of trustees, regions, one hundred thirty university presidents and Chancellors hundred thirty athletic directors under thirty head, football coaches, and I guarantee it dollar on the same page, and so you know we're. We're just trying to adjust on what makes the most sense for my university and ultimately our conferences. And everyone has a different set of circumstances as you said Commissioner Thompson but. It is late I think you know that we all we all know that. As you are about to go on these calls here in the next hour or two How do you start narrowing the window and coming to? Conclusions! Well we all kind of went into that false pretense and hope that fans should be better in July and August and we had time right back in March. We had four months to figure this out when we've got probably less than four weeks. A couple of weeks a big date coming up on Friday with you know the the six week period starting extended team practices, and then most camps opening somewhat in that August seventh time friend I! I had a good exchange with one of our head. Football coaches today saying you know I don't even know what to do. Because of campus regulations and concerns, we have one institution that's had nearly one hundred football players for little over a month. Now Paul and we have another institution that literally has no football players, conditioning of or working out degree, and so you know we're all over the map based on a local and university, muncipality rules and regulations and. I said this for months gone on standby. One of one of the big concerns and focal points for us is the state of California They just announced today that they're going to delay. The start of their prep season suggested until December or January didn't give an exacting, and they join a couple of states that the prep seasons have been canceled altogether one of our states New Mexico, so just just trying to deal with all the nuances and differences in rules, policies and allowances. As you as you try to deal with with some some issues before that certainly, the non-conference issues a lot of non conference. Games have been scrubbed. I. Has that been a major issue for you or Were you in reasonably good shape. Well it is a big issue, and of course years of all years. This is our twenty seven season A. We had more home games against PAC twelve than any time in our previous 21-year-history, we lost home games. Ucla at both. San Diego State ally. Utah, Colorado Washington state calendars on a state. They were GONNA play at the new two billion dollar NFL stadium in Las Vegas against UNLV so a lot of people like to point to that financial loss of losing the the six road at twelve games and a and a guarantee. Those seven home games from from both of financial interest level, and then ultimately you know television perspective CBS. Fox Aren't real thrilled. You know that we lost those seven home games. Talking to the Commissioner of the Mountain West Craig Thompson discussing all the variables. Commissioner. We. We've talked to so many different commissioners over these past few months, and as you as you so eloquently pointed out a minute ago. Everyone has a different set of circumstances and challenges you maybe more than than most because of the geographical aspect. But how do you think and it shouldn't be that hard to think about it since it's not far off? How how do you ultimately come up with what you would say? Good solution, not only for your member institutions, but for the safety of the athletes. Well again. You not to lean on your medical people and that's one of the. Major aspects of this board call coming up in an hour, so Paul because It's the first time that they in a while. They've heard directly from the the medical advisory group and you know they don't depend on them. You know they. They are the experts, will we? The board are economists and Then different walks of life. They're not medical people, per se, and so you know you really have to lean heavily on what makes sense I. I said four months ago and I I contend today. A lot of this is going to be perhaps probably triggered by what happens on our campuses. What they look like in the next month or so you know everybody's either hybrid mostly online You know there's GonNa. Be Certainly people walking around campus, but you know you. You really can't expect to have a college athletics if you don't have a fairly open in some degree. Campus. Commissioner I, it's no secret Wherever conferences are located and and and spread that football pays the majority of the bills there. There's some outliers of course but What's at stake you just from a revenue standpoint? Well you know. Let's all kinds of figures in I I know that A couple of our department said have lost Well in excess of ten million dollars now, and then could jump into without football alum Paul you know double and triple, and you know those are not insignificant numbers. They're smaller than the world. You live in I lived in Atlanta. For four years. New Orleans for twelve years both children born in New Orleans and well versed in an SEC football, and what it means in a walk of life, and so it's different, no question it's different I live in Colorado and and what it's like in Western states, but but none the less. You, do not escape whatever love your Ad. That football is probably that you know eighty eighty five percent of of an athletic budget, and and so it's so very important, but you know as harmful as painful rather as it is from the financial perspective now that cannot be the driving force won't be the driving force. It will be that the health and safety it'll be university decisions. You know I've always. Always felt. The presidents of universities and chances have an extremely difficult position now more so than ever because they're pushed him pulled in and all these different directions and you know I. Don't know how the decision will. Ultimately made would fall looks like from terms of football. I don't know who makes that decision, but Hopefully they'll be some clobbering collective. Let's let's go right to the College Football playoff. Can you even imagine a world where pick a number? Three conferences can play in the fall and seven up to play in the spring. What happens to see a p.? Is there a CFP? Does that make sense to have a CFP? I guess it might depend on those three conferences are and I use. You know you, you're GONNA have to look at this for for the good of everybody, and and you know the collaboration and collective exchange and we've seen conferences. Do things unilaterally I mean as a commissioner. You Work for twelve schools. You don't work for honored thirty FBI schools, and so you're doing what's right, and what's your membership is is directing and advise you to do, but we do have to get together and get the same page in some regards spor for the sake of the CFD for instance and the bowl system. I know at least I'm told in talking to your colleagues commissioners. We wind down. I know you've got a lot of meetings to that. You are a collaborative group. I mean that's a fact. I mean we see that all the time but it but I wonder though. Because we've already seen some some. Some schisms as we had the big ten, and then everyone else said something else I mean the PAC twelve and the big ten, and do you. Are you concerned about the stability of of what you do every day and try to work with everyone else within the framework of college athletics. I am and I'm not I mean again. We try to work together, but at the end of the day our plan for fourteen or ten members, order media have will dictate. What direction are leagues go and I know the NCAA takes a ton of shots, but the NCAA is membership driven. It's schools that are that are ultimately making decisions and the conferences the exact same way, so you know we can compare but I. I am concerned about The postseason college football, the the CFC's a five hundred million dollar enterprise NCAA. Basketball Championship is a six hundred million dollars in a prize number of conferences of two hundred and fifty to three hundred million dollar annual TV, contracts, and and we can't go ten I don't well. Yeah, anything's possible. You could go ten separate ways I. certainly don't think it's going to be that way at the end of the day. Commissioner will let you get back to your meetings, but thank you for making time. It was just a pleasure to to hear your perspective as someone who is so well respected. And revered in this industry we be well and let's hope for some good news. Stay safe yourself my friend.

New York City they have their own set of taxes you know now you got dot com read the Blasi once what not the once a nine billion dollar check it ain't happening says in corona virus related and on top of it all nobody in New York can't even think of a way to open up new York safely I have no plan it's just a hodgepodge mix of everything you know thrown up against the wall and you see this all over the place all these democratic governors the Commonwealth governor of north of member him well deliver the baby and then there will make sure the baby is comfortable that will let the mother decide in consultation with our doctor what we're gonna let the baby live or die I mean that lunatic he's not wearing a mask telling everybody in the Commonwealth of Virginia to wear a mask you got the democratic New Mexico governor violating the corona virus order kept the business open why so she could buy jewelry the Michigan governor now we know our husband it was only a joke makes a phone call because he wants to get his boat in the water people in Michigan they can't even cut their lawn and then we find out that the governor governor shut down Whitmer said about her husband that he went to their second home to rake leaves in the northern part of the state and he came back right after he raked the leaves but when she ordered the the opening in some of these more rural areas in Michigan she said the people not don't rush up there and overwhelm the area well why did husband go up there yeah it's it's insane yeah it is unbelievable I've never seen anything like this you know and well and another thing to be angry about CDC suggesting coronavirus fatality rate higher than the flu but eight times lower than the models and the estimates from the experts that you know originally were projecting two and a half million dead Americans you know you have the great doctor Fauci I respect for Dr Fauci he's dedicated his life to saving lives but he's he has a minute anywhere close to perfect in this you know early or mid mid March saying you don't need to wear masks now you say you have to wear a mask that he changed his tune now he's back to you know well the second wave now of cold it may never happen and mask wearing is symbolic respectful okay I would be my termite but you do what you want but they don't know what the hell they're talking about now a lot of it is because China lied a lot of it is if people made you know with the best gas they have this you know this is this is art is much is science sometimes when you're in the early stages of this you gotta go with your gut here they're the best person with the best got ended up being Donald Trump travel ban quarantines subsequent travel bans they were impeaching him at the time you know the media sensationalism what they told the public that would happen it didn't happen and reality now look I've I'm pro life I believe every life is a gift from god and I want everybody healthy and and hopefully we're gonna learn the lessons that I outlined yesterday on the show because of we look at the states that were successful we can learn from governor Disentis we can learn from governor abit and even governor camp I was critical of early on I thought the tattoo parlor idea opening up and the nail salon was little not so I was wrong on the nail salon I still don't know about the tattoo thing what do I know maybe they maybe they can cut out of an area where the guys just reaching under the plexiglass and do that I've I have no idea I would recommend getting a tattoo now wait and I don't want to put people out of work if you can figure out how to do it safely are you well I was gonna say we'll send Linda she'll go get a tattoo for everybody all my god never never now you know you don't do you want to hear the mean side of me is that my dad would kill me if I did that no I just told my kids I just burn it off yeah I'm like no that's not happening all right let's get tore it and by the way that the Bakul New York New Jersey Pennsylvania Michigan literally the single dumbest decisions in this entire pandemic and then in New York it gets worse because the governor sneaks into a budget bill legal protections so that hospitals and nursing homes a donated a million Bucks to him in twenty eighteen they can't get sued as a result of what happened here well putting Colbert nineteen patients in a nursing home was a bad idea from the get go all right let's go to the gym is in Illinois Jim hi how are you glad you called Sir John I'm just so upset this governor called Cuomo's absolutely call for the death of those people that he sent to these the nursing homes and the nursing home people the innocent citizens that were living there thinking that there are guys in your head some of normal life in their final days and then this guy so this is the all the days of he's just so any money so full of it is full of crap trying to blame the president who's who's done everything bent over backwards to enable these to give both of these governors including him every tool kit available and he bypasses that system incentives instead of sending him to the facilities provided by our president he sent them to these nursing homes by the by his mandate it was not yet no no first is blaming the nursing homes that is all pattern of excuses here he lashed out at the nursing homes it's all about money on my watch and then he said you are responsible for your own PP I'm Mike house I took my breath away because this is a guy that demanded everything from the federal government because he didn't listen it was own health task force and they had no ventilators in the city or in the state and they had two separate studies saying you're gonna need them and they didn't get them but trump made it work he

Corporate Buyers Remorse: Victorias Secrets Sale Falls Through

"From wondering. I'm David Brown and this business. Wars daily on this Monday may eleventh. Victoria's secret is starting to look like one of those. Oh things around the house that you can't seem to sell and maybe you can't even give it away in February L. Brands. Victoria's secret's parent company. Agreed to sell a majority of the lingerie brand to a private equity firm for just over half a billion dollars. The deal with Sycamore partners appear to be a last ditch effort to keep Victoria secret alive. Not only has the brand been perceived to be out of touch with today's body positive customers but it has also been buffeted by scandal notably L. Brand CEO Les Wexner had been associated with Jeffrey Epstein. The alleged sex trafficker who died in his prison cell last year. In addition the New York Times published an expose about. Victoria's secret in February. The investigation turned up. Detailed sexual harassment and hostile workplace claims by employees and models claims that L. Brands didn't deny between the scandals and years of marketing misteps. It was as if the once glittering Victoria's secret couldn't get out of its own way though still selling plenty of merchandise. The brand lost more than six hundred million dollars last year. As Victoria's secret star was falling it sibling brand. Bath and body works was soaring. But Victoria's secrets problems. Were a drag on bath and body works and that damaged their parent company. L. Brand stock price fell more than half in the twelve months. The Wall Street Journal reported. So the deal was sycamore. Seemed like a solution to L. Brands. Difficulties Sycamore would take. Victoria's secret private but leave bath and body works. In the hands of L. Brands L. Brands could then pour more resources into the soap and candle retailer whose profits were bubbling along CEO. Wexner who is eighty two years old planned to step down from his post when the deal closed but last week the deal fell apart in late. April Sycamore Partner Sued L. Brand saying that Victoria secret hadn't kept up. Its end of the bargain among other things. Sycamore criticized L. Brands for closing. Virtually all of its sixteen hundred brick and mortar. Victoria's secret and pink stores globally failing to pay April rant and furloughing most of its employees during corona virus. Lockout as a result. Sycamore said the private equity firm should be allowed to back out of the deal. Some analysts defended L. BRANDS. Actions since closures were either prudent or mandated by state and local governments retail dives. Daphne Jalan reported others however said L. Brands should have consulted. More closely with Sycamore. L. Brands fought back. They countersued saying that. Sycamore suit appeared to be an apparent case of buyer's remorse according to Jalan they remarked on the irony. That other retailers already owned by Sycamore also closed their doors finally L. Brands accused Sycamore of simply trying to negotiate a lower purchase price. For Victoria's secret L. brands appear to be ready for a fight but last Monday the two companies said the deal was off. L. Brand said it didn't WANNA spend time and money in court trying to force a partnership. Sycamore walked away unscathed which leaves L. Brands in a precarious position.

President Trump hosts Native American roundtable in Arizona

"This is national native news. I'm Antonio Gonzales. President Trump signed a proclamation acknowledging missing and murdered Indigenous People Tuesday during a visit to Arizona which included a round discussion with Navajo Nation Vice President Myron laser and his wife Dottie laser and Hilo River Indian community governor Stephen Role Lewis dotty. Liser is an advocate working on missing murdered indigenous women issues. The President M I W is a growing issue on the Navajo nation. Here's part of her comments from livestream of the meeting on C. Span with the Ashland Mike case that came up in two thousand sixteen where she was kidnapped and raped and murdered in New Mexico. May Second Two thousand sixteen. So that's kind of open the door for Navajo to start saying okay. We need to do something. Because I became the forefront and so since then the amber alert on that one nation has gotten better but still needs help with funding. Still needs help with getting the data together. The roundtable lasted about thirty minutes and included discussions about cove nineteen which has hit the Navajo nation. Hard this week. The number of positive Navajo cases exceeded two thousand five hundred tribes across the country have been waiting for federal cove. Nineteen Relief Eight. Eight billion dollars is set aside for tribes in the Cares Act. President trump commented about the funding including the amount to the Navajo nation as he joked with vice. President Liser is the single largest investment in Indian country in our history. So the amount of money that's being sent to Indian country as we call it is the largest amount in the history of the US. And you deserve. And you've been through a lot in the Navajo. Nation will soon receive over six hundred million dollars. That's a lot. Can renegotiate community door. Go up before the Hilo River Indian community is set to receive forty million dollars. Disbursement has been delayed. The Treasury Department announced Tuesday a plan to begin payments to tribes which includes holding back amounts for Alaska native corporations due to pending litigation more than a dozen tribes sued over the inclusion of Alaskan native corporations in the funding he l- River Indian community governor Steven Lewis commented about the funding at the end of the meeting urging for the immediate release of the money and also saying the eight billion dollars is woefully inadequate to meet the needs of tribes. Nothing Empire. I'm trying getting some of the money out today. I WanNa thank you. Also because we need help now Indian tribes and can't wait for that litigation to end before from the and also governor Lewis also asked for a cap to be put on the amount anyone tribe receives and to allow tribes to have flexible guidance to keep their governments running. The Treasury. Department's plan is to begin allocating sixty percent of the eight billion this week. Two tribes the president of the Rosebud Sioux tribe in South Dakota declared an immediate lockdown of community Tuesday due to Cova Nineteen President Rodney Bordeaux and a social media message declared the lockdown of the Spring Creek community due to a high exposure of covert nineteen law enforcement will be monitoring roads and no one will be allowed inner out of Spring Creek. The message states lockdown is to protect the rest of the communities from the spread of cove nineteen the tribal assist people in need of food and supplies. No other information was shared. A number of tribes in South Dakota have taken emergency measures to address cove in nineteen including the Oglala Sioux tribe which issued a reservation white lockdown down and the Cheyenne River Sioux tribe monitoring borders among several of. Its emergency measures.

Grand Moon Landing Plans: NASA Awards Lunar Lander Contracts to Blue Origin and SpaceX

"From wonder. I'm David Brown. And this is business. Wars daily on this Wednesday may sixth ever since John F. Kennedy ask Congress to fund a mission to the Moon in nineteen sixty one presidents have been captivated by the dream of conquering the cosmos. I've believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal before this decade is out of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth. Why the Moon why Mars? Because it is humanity's destiny to strive to seek to find we will give NASA new focus and vision for future expiration. We will build new ships to carry man forward into the universe to gain a foothold on the moon and prepare for new journey to the world's beyond our own that of course was JFK followed by President. George H W Bush in nineteen eighty nine and his son. George W Bush in two thousand four. Both bushes attempted to chart new courses for America to return to the moon. But these initiatives failed other space exploration plans of struggled to is Congress. The American people grappled with conflicts over money and namely it became difficult for taxpayers to justify spending hundreds of billions of dollars in space instead of funding urgent needs here on Terra Firma as a result the last time in American set foot on the moon was was the Apollo Seventeen mission in nineteen seventy two now in twenty twenty. That conflict has risen once again. The White House wants to put the first woman and the next man on the moon by twenty twenty four. That's four years ahead of an earlier NASA plan. President trump ordered the speed up in two thousand seventeen to make the optimist moon landing program. Nasa needs a Lunar Lander a spaceship designed to ferry astronauts from Lunar Orbit to the Moon's surface and back again late last month NASA awarded three contracts to private companies to build just such a lander in total the space agency. Funded almost a billion dollars worth of design and development. One of those contracts went to a team led by Jeff bazars his company blue origin. That team was awarded the largest of the three contracts. Almost six hundred million dollars though. Use It to design a lander somewhat like the one used in the Apollo program. Elon Musk's spacex one. A one hundred thirty five million dollar contract to work on a gigantic reusable lander spacex his lander which reportedly can carry one. Hundred tons of cargo is based on. Its starship spacecraft. Eventually the starship is intended to transport people to Mars The New York Times reports. The third contract for two hundred fifty million dollars went to a team led by Huntsville Alabama Company dianetics. The three companies have ten months to develop their lunar landers new definition of a space race. Anyone at that point NASA will have a clear idea of which lender they'll choose one prominent company. They didn't make the cut. Boeing. Nasa didn't say why it declined to award Boeing contract according to the Guardian but in December test flight of its star liner spaceship failed. That test flight had no crew aboard but the star liner was built with the intention of transporting astronauts to the International Space Station sending astronauts to the moon by twenty twenty four. He is fraught with technical organizational and financial challenges. Perhaps the toughest one is the cost. Nasr's twenty twenty budget is more than twenty billion dollars in twenty twenty one. That budget will have to increase by three billion dollars to fund the Lunar Lander according to the Guardian NASA administrator.

"Fox News. President Trump about to speak in the rose garden of the White House this hour the topic. Of course, the situation at the southern border. The president is expected to sign legislation today that was passed yesterday by the house and Senate that will avoid another government shutdown. But it is a Bill that does not include the five billion the president wanted for his border wall. That is what caused the government shutdown in December and the first place. I want to go right now to FOX News Radio Jon decker who is in the white House Rose Garden awaiting the president's remarks, it's kind of been a back and forth all week or for longer than a week. We'll he declared national emergency today Willie. Not what are you hearing, John? Well, we're hearing that today's the day in which the president's going to pull the trigger declare national emergency in an effort to get funds said he otherwise the president says would not have if he doesn't declare a national emergency under the plan. The president is going to announce. According to the White House there he will be moving eight billion dollars in currently appropriated or available funds toward construction of that border wall with Mexico, and that money includes about six hundred million dollars from the treasury department. Foreclosure fund are say four forefeiture fund. This is money forfeiture. Forfeited by individuals who have fraught foul of the law Tanya and addition to that the president will also try to obtain money through the interdiction money of section two eighty four of the US code and that money the president believes can be obtained immediately. Alright I have two questions right off the bat. Their first of all eight billion is a little bit more than five million. Which is a billion rather. Which is what he was wanting in the first place, and the whole reason for the government shutdown. Why eight now instead of five that's what the White House says is available to them. Keep in mind, all these figures are figures at the White House says could be available to them. This is going to be challenged immediately in the federal courts Tanya, and that would mean that the president would not be able to obtain those funds immediately. He would be enjoying from doing. So by a federal judge. And as a result, the president is going to have to make do with the approximately one point four billion dollars. That was appropriated by congress and the deal that was reached earlier this week. And then you pointed that out because that was my next question about the legal entanglements that this will most certainly spur. I mean, there's already been talk of, you know, people saying, okay. Well, let me yes, I'm talking about congressional leaders. And especially Democrats are saying no, this is you can't do this legally what what are the legal portions of this. I know you're a lawyer. So you're the best one I have to ask can he really do this? And if he does how does he justify it? Well, as far as the DOD section two eighty four funds, the president can obtain those funds the White House says immediately without even having to declare a national. Urgency. And so the question is, well, why hasn't he done that already been in office? Now his third year in office didn't do that in two thousand seventeen didn't do that in two thousand eighteen I sense that the White House counsel's office was telling the president. You can't do that. Well, the president is going to do that today. There is also the problem. The president faces of the US constitution the power of the purse power the purse, according to the US constitution rests with congress, and you cannot spend money under that provision in the constitution without getting a specific appropriation from congress. The president has received that he's received in a specific appropriation of one point three seven five billion dollars and with that money. The White House says he can build fifty five miles of wall along the us Mexico border, the president wants to augment that and the president wants to use this money that the White House says he can obtain through these other methods to build additional border wall. I wanted to go right now to a soundbite we've got some sound from Nancy Pelosi who has given her reaction to all of this president's doing Enron about Pounder about the power of the purse. You've heard me say over and over again article one the legislative branch the power of the purse tower declare war, many other powers. Enlisted in the constitution. And of course, the responsibility to have oversight. So the president is joining an Rhonda around that we will options hair to respond appropriately to it. I know Republicans have some unease about it matter what they say because if the president can declare an emergency on something that he has created as an emergency. And. I. He wants to convey just think of what a president. That's different values can present to the American people speaker Pelosi there yesterday after the house had passed their portion of that legislation yesterday, and John let me let's talk a little bit about that that legislation. I know this was to avoid another government shutdown when the last government shutdown was ended. We knew that the clock was ticking. And that the president had set yet another date that if I don't get my border wall money by then I'm going to have another government shutdown, or it's at least something that was a possibility. What does this legislation cover that was passed yesterday? Well, that date is tonight. It's Friday at midnight. If the president does not sign the legislation, which is now passed the house passed the Senate, then we'd have another partial government shutdown like the one we had at the beginning of this year and the end of two thousand eighteen of course, lasted thirty five days. The president will sign that legislation today and also today declare this national emergency. The Bill that he's going to sign today. Includes altogether twenty three billion dollars in border security funds. So not only does it include those that one point three seven five billion dollars for building that border barriers. They're calling it with Mexico. There's also additional funds which would go towards additional border security in personnel at the border. And in addition to that more of those judges to hear those asylum claims from individuals trying to come across the US Mexico border Tanya, so let's say that there is a lawsuit. And let's say he does declare this national emergency and end, by the way, we are waiting for the president to come out and speak in the rose garden of the White House. That is expected really any minute four minutes ago, actually is when we expected him to come out and speak. So that could start any moment will jump in there. When when does, but John let's say that there are legal wranglings over this during the while this is being settled, it is this kind of like the travel ban. When somebody's sues. Over something that the president has decided he wants to do that kind of ties it up in in lawsuits in courts and whatnot. That could go on for a while. There is no there is. No, okay. We're going to go ahead and give you the money while we're waiting to discover this and figure out what what goes on, right? That's exactly right. So as with the travel ban, there was a temporary restraining order that ultimately came a permanent injunction that prevented the president from a putting in place that travel ban while it went through the federal court system here a similar thing is likely to occur. A federal judge hearing this case from a party that has been aggrieved such as the US congress will say, I am not allowing you to obtain those funds while this goes through the federal process. How long did that take a year two years and during that time period, the president would not have access to those funds? But of course, could access the funds which have been appropriate to the president one point three seven five billion dollars from congress Tanya president is expected to Claire to declare. National emergency at the southern border in order to get his money for the border wall that he wants let me ask you, John. He has he has had two years of a Republican controlled congress house Senate White House. How is he going to justify that? Now, it is a national emergency. Instead of having been able to get this done in the last two years. I think that's a sticking point for a lot of people. Fly all of a sudden is it has has it resulted to this. Well, that's a really good question. The president has actually been asked that question. How long has there been national emergency? He says it actually goes back to the Obama administration. So it's not.

"Hi, I'm low Riley in this is the talking points memo big speech by President Trump tonight on the border wall government shutdown controversy, also replying Senator Charles Schumer, and speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi speeches should be eight minutes each. And now, I am going to tell you what I would say if I were president of the United States, first of all the speech has to be fact, based this is a hearts and minds thing tonight. It's basically presenting your argument to the American people not your supporters, but to the American people who are in the middle. Not inform. They don't know you got to persuade. All right. So President Trump's going to be on the teleprompter. I am not using a teleprompter right now. I'm talking of top my head. But he's going to be using teleprompter. You would assume he rehearses the speech. So that it comes across fairly naturally and. And the points. He has to make have to be very very precise in methodical. He should begin with a little bit of history. So that in August two thousand and ten President Obama signed a Bill that allocated six hundred million dollars for increased border security, not a wall, but in certain places barriers but six hundred million it failed the Bill failed even though fifteen hundred to secure border security agents for hired the Bill fell and that puts to rest any of the arguments. Democrats may have that we don't need a wall. We could just do it with drones and more people more agents more judges. That's not true. Right. So once the president says, look we were all United at one time in this country on increase border security. We tried it. It didn't work. So now we need. Upgrade to a border fence wall, steal whatever may be. Then he's gotta run down the reasons why. Now, the first and most important reason is that ninety percent of all narcotics smuggled into the USA come from the Mexican border ninety percent. If you look at the deaths each year in the United States from narcotics use tops one hundred thousand easy if that's not a national emergency. I don't know what it is. So drug addiction and drug use is corroding our society. And it's coming from Mexico. That's not in dispute. None of that's in dispute. That's what you lead with. And then you cite statistics, bang bang. Bang, bang, bang, and the Democrats have no reply to that zero second important point. There is an organized effort to collapse the American asylum system, fifteen hundred four thousand seven thousand people Jordan, just materialize out on doors and Guatemala was organized and them to the US border causes much trouble as possible collapse, the United States asylum system K that's serious serious. And within those seven thousand fifteen hundred whatever it may be you have hard cases, you have men young men who are going to cause trouble here. We have a gang problem here from Central America MS thirteen Riley on Long Island. It's intense. And of course, you have Americans being killed by legal aliens every week. So he's got a President Trump's got stat stat stat. This is number two. I narcotics then trying to collapse the American immigration and asylum system and third is the overall security we need to nose here. We have any estimate between twelve and twenty million people in the United States. We don't know the here, we don't know who they are. You can't run a federal government that way, that's irresponsible. People need to come here legally not running across the southern border. And then you say, and my opponents in the Democratic Party says walls of work it works in Israel in worked in Europe. Trying to stem the refugees from Syria and the Middle East it worked in east Berlin, keeping the people in in east, Germany. There's no way that a wall didn't work. It worked everywhere that it was put up because barriers make it more difficult to cry simple. So he's asking for five point six billion dollars. That's a pittance. Why wouldn't we do that if the border security under President Obama failed which it did? You gotta try something new. And now you have an organized attempt to collapse her system and a narcotics problem that's out of control. Dash your argument. There's your argument put it forth and seven minutes and you'll win the debate.

"For three hundred million dollars after Barack Obama gave him a CIA contract worth six hundred million dollars. Interesting. Jeff biz base. I think it's basis he said a new record. He lost more money than anyone in history. And it doesn't matter in two days. He lost nineteen point two billion dollars trading on on the stock market. It's you know, on paper, technically, it has the most money ever lost by anyone in that amount of time. According to the Bloomberg billionaires index, but don't feel bad for Jeff. He woke up after having lost nineteen point two billion dollars. Keep in mind that the point to is two hundred million dollars. The rounding error that he just drop off as a tip at lunch is two hundred s great. He's a very successful. He figured something out and the world beat a path to his door. He built a better mousetrap. And he has been rewarded for an extraordinary fashion. He's still worth after losing nineteen point two billion dollars in two days. He's still worth I think are comfortable one hundred twenty eight point one billion dollars. Again, the point one is one hundred million dollars. He did peak out. However last month at one hundred sixty seven point seven billion dollars one hundred sixty seven point seven billion dollars. Now, it's down to one hundred twenty eight point one billion most people could probably get by on the point one billion for a couple of years at least hundred million dollars here. And there the Washington Post they have this Greg sergent guy his very angry. He he doesn't like Trump. Don't now President Trump announced yesterday. I do we have the thing from the vox interview where he's talking about. Oh, I'm sorry. It's axios where the president is talking about. And it's kind of weird because he's talking to this reporter guy and the reporter asked him. Well, what about ending birthright citizenship? Can you do that by executive order and the president is like, yeah. I can't do it by executive order. Yeah. I might do it by executive order. I don't know if he got the idea right here, you know, Bronco or not, but you know, Barack Obama he is the executive order for all kinds of things that were at least stretching the bounds of constitutionality. He's circumvented the congress at every turn that that awful horrible. Iran deal was not a treaty even though in history. It's a new it's the only nuclear non treaty we've ever signed up for and Barack Obama. He just has no use for branches of government. He just signed it in the news media. Oud. An. Odd. And they thought it was wonderful. So the reporter with axios not vox, but axios sitting down with President Trump yesterday who does more media interviews in a week than Barack Obama does in a year or did in a year while he was president. And and he's asked about this birthright citizenship thing now to be clear for those who don't know birthright citizenship is if you're on US soil when you give birth you're a woman or a democrat man, and you're giving birth and you're on US soil. You can literally pole vault across the border in Canada land in upstate New York. Pop out a Muffin and boom the Muffin as a US citizen. Now, you can be a wanted criminal in Ukraine, and if you are on a layover at Chicago's O'Hare airport, and you go into the delta lounge and you give birth. The mother is not a US citizen the mother's not with anyone else. Else that child born in the delta lounge at Chicago's O'Hare airport to Ukrainian war criminal. Who is not a US citizen is are you a US citizen? The baby is the US citizen. This is insane. In the age of jets, and automobiles and high-speed trains. This is insane. And I've been saying for years and years and years that we should put an end to this and President Trump has mumbled about it. He's talked about it here and there a little bit. And and yesterday he was asked about it. And he gave this answer this little back and forth on immigration, some legal scholars believe you can get rid of birthright citizenship without changing the constitution. We ordered. Exactly, right. Have you thought about this? Tell them all it was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Number one, number one. You don't need that number. Over it. You can definitely do it with an act of congress. But now they're saying I can do just with an executive order now how ridiculous with the only country in the world where a person comes in has a baby and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for eighty five years with all of those benefits. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And it has to end and have you talked about that with council. So where in the process in the process it'll happen. An executive order. That's what you're talking about. Yes. Exactly. I didn't think anybody but knew that. But me, I thought I was the only one the only one who knew that says he's talked to counsel about it. That's come up and. I know I hope he does it'll it'll raise constitutional hackles and there'll be a fight over it. And then we'll be talking about it. And it's something that we should be talking about one way or the other. Well, Greg surgeon is a lefty, and he types for Dr evil, and he's at the doctor evil posts. He's got this headline this morning. Don't fall for Trump's desperate race baiting birthright citizenship stunt now, you really don't have to read the piece at that point. Do you have where Greg Sargent the journalists stands on this story? And where the Washington Post stance on the story because Greg doesn't really get to clear his own headlines either it's a desperate race baiting birthright citizenship stunt and says stunt and it's race baiting, and it's desperate. That's just in the headline. That's good stuff. Yeah. Right now as you desperate race baiting. Stunts I think like. What was his name Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri hands up don't shoot that was a desperate race baiting? Stunt the beer summit. With sergeant Crowley end. Skip gates the professor from Harvard who got locked out of his own house because he's not so smart after all and then got arrested for being abusive to the place desperate race baiting political stunt Trayvon Martin desperate race baiting political stunt, Freddie, gray the heroin dealer in Baltimore, desks with the cops are all the bad guys. You know, Hispanic black cops, they're all the racists and bad guys. Remember that since then more than a dozen police officers have been targeted and killed murdered by lefties who are just setting out to murder police officers that wasn't happening before Barack Obama launched his war against the place. But I noticed that the news media never talks about this. When five police officer murdered at a black lives matter rally, that's led by Al Sharpton in Dallas, the news media. Never connects these dots. These are unconnected. That's there. Like dirt in tied the dots. Just spread out. Never to be connected again. And you guys are the desperate race baiting. You're the clan. Your Jim crow, your Jefferson Davis, your slavery. You're the confederacy you're standing in schoolhouse doors. You're a boarding forty percent of the black population. You're harvesting their organs, and you're giving out a words for it. And I gotta say I'm not really eager to sit around and be called a racist by people like you you literally collect their organs. Literally. It's quite amazing. The Washington Post has another one typed up by they got three people more and more because they worked for the richest men in the world they no longer assigned one reporter to a story they signed three four five sometimes six reporters to a story. I don't know how you have type that up together. It must be painful shooting victims family. This is back to Pittsburgh now shooting victims families shuns, President Trump in Pittsburgh as top officials declined to join him. They don't mention that. There are left wing Democrats who are filled with hatred for Trump and are pushing the civil war thing here in the United States. But they've got you know, more rubbed blanket. Avi. Selleck Mark Berman all typing for the Democrats here. Morning family doesn't want to meet him. Well, it's not mandatory. They don't have to know. It's you you you you can do whatever you want. That's that's fine. Now, if someone refused to meet with. With President Obama. They were racists, they were horrible people there. The media dumped all over them because they were horrible people. If someone doesn't want to meet with Trump, it's because they're heroic if they don't want to go to the White House after winning the stupor bowl or something the World Series, then they're heroes for being part of the resistance. Right. And they found a family, and you know, God bless them. They're in mourning. But the news media's year to capitalize on their morning and to exploit them for disgusting racist political purposes, I just threw in racist. Because it's more fun that way, I think now let's go to let's go to the, oh, I've got another one to the news media's excited about this. And then I want to go to the rabbi. The Washington Examiner congressional leaders decline invites to join Trump in Pittsburgh. Now the fake news media. They're saying even Republican congressional leaders refused to go with Trump. That's silly and stupid. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and house speaker Paul Ryan both had scheduling conflicts, they already had obligated themselves to be elsewhere. So they couldn't go with the president on Air Force One up to Pittsburgh for this solemn event. However, Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer and minority. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, we're invited to join Trump in Pennsylvania, but declined they didn't claim they had a scheduling conflict or anything in the kind. They just said they're not going because they're not with us. That said it's not just that they're not with Trump and they're not with Republicans. We know that there are filled with hatred for that. And they and they we had this this clown. Also is the clowns Stiller is a while. Now, it's. Oh as an online clown saying. Oh, yeah. You should Hillary called Republicans every name in the book prove it. Here's Chris Plante show waiting for some proof of your claim turned fifty five this morning that Hillary calls people every name in the book. I don't know where have you been in jail and North Korea for the last couple of years or what you could play half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables races,.
