Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?

"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.

Biden shatters record with $364.5 million haul in August

"Eye catching news is the fundraising numbers that Biden is reporting for the month of August according to the new. York Times his campaign received more than hundred sixty, million dollars for the entire month, which would blow pass Barack Obama's previous record set in two thousand eight. The months numbers were helped by two huge events, the Democratic convention, which is Essentially A. Four, night commercial or telethon, and then announcing Comma Harris has his choice for VP, which apparently led to the campaign racing forty, eight million dollars in the forty eight hours after the announcement not to be outdone trump in the RNC said they raised about seventy, six, million dollars during last week's convention whereas Biden raised seventy million during the Democrat convention. But this huge month from Joe definitely cut into trump's fundraising

Insider trading issues raised after Kodak's stock gets hot

"Shares of Kodak taking another leg lower today as the drama around the company Continues Swirl. The latest twist. Kodak. Significantly up to its lobbying spending before being awarded seven hundred and sixty five million dollar government loan according to Reuters Kodak Spent Eight hundred seventy thousand dollars in lobbying efforts between April and June. Compare that to less than five thousand dollars it spent in Q. One of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred now as. We've been reporting here on fast money. The rise in Kodak's years before news officially broke of that government loans, concerns of insider trading and an SEC broke the company's earnings call last night Kodak CEO said, he supports the government's decision to put the loan on hold until I'd investigation is complete. Karen you have puts in this stock. What is remarkable is that it's nowhere near the level it was trading at prior to the win the loan was announced. Right. Five hundred percent more than that. It's interesting to me that that's a great return on those lobbying dollars, right? I mean eight, hundred, thousand. Seven hundred sixty, million dollar loan or whatever. It might be I think the CEO had to say that I don't really know what else he can say like does disregard those that all that option noise give us the money anyway I think that this I think it's sort of become an embarrassment of to the trump administration and they probably should just. Speaking now someone who's long puts right that they should just let this one go and not not fun this loan it's too noisy. Ten and Every part of that option is just terrible right Tim. What it gets back to you know even if they get the loan, are they the right company to be producing the pharmaceutical? Talk. Once upon a time, try to be a blockchain company. Now back to photography company trying to be a generic drugmaker ingredient maker is right company. I mean. This is a company that has tried to reinvent itself Multiple Times since twenty twelve bankruptcy. And so I just it's hard for me to understand. We don't have enough of a show to talk about the what lobbying efforts or like and the impact and how the shouldn't happen anyway even with real companies. But I think if you look at the trading volume volume on the stock, it went from trading by appointment to trading two hundred and fifty million shares at its peak two weeks ago It's still trading about nine million shares to about eating a million dollars of turnover which tells you there's just an extraordinary backdrop still I agree with Karen, I think there's more to go here.

Banks are Cutting Their Risk By Cutting Your Credit Card Limits

"On this Wednesday may twentieth. Hey have you applied for a new credit card in the last couple of months if so and if you've had trouble getting approved well you're in good company? Given all the financial uncertainty were experiencing right. Now banks are nervous so they're making it much tougher to qualify for new cards to avoid taking on customers. Who may not be able to pay their bills. According to the Saint Louis Federal Reserve forty percent of. Us Bank say. They're getting choosier about who they lend money to. Where that's issuing credit cards or personal loans? That's the biggest pull back in lending since two thousand nine. According to see net among the biggest lenders to play defense this way discover financial services apply for a discover card. And you'll find the company verifying your employment not just your credit score and if you are approved your credit limit may well be less than you'd hope for on recent earnings called discover CEO. Roger Hawks Trial said the company's taking these and other steps to quote curtail risk to put it more plainly discover and other financial institutions. WanNa make sure they don't get saddled with too much. Unpaid debt pre pandemic discover had been growing steadily and profitably twenty. Nineteen was a good year and the company was expecting twenty twenty to be even better instead. Discover lost about sixty million dollars in the first quarter of this year and its future like the future of so many other businesses is clearly uncertain which is to say things may not be any easier at the other major credit card companies both city and capital. One say they are also tightening up credit requirements C net reports. Okay so maybe you can't get a new card and you haven't seen one of those zero balanced transfer offers that to flood your mailbox in months but that's not all. Some companies are reducing credit limits for existing customers. It's happening a lot one out of four American credit card users. That's fifty million. People have had their credit limits slashed on at least one card in the previous thirty days some have even had an account closed. That's according to a survey by compare cards a service owned by lending tree. Those changes are hitting Gen Z. Millennials and Gen xers equally according to see net. Apparently baby boomers are being spared so far. This is a tough thing to have happened. If you've just lost your job or you expect to and it often comes as a rather ugly surprise credit cards dot com analysts had rosman told Marketwatch. Most people don't realize how much freedom credit card issuers have to cut limits or even cancel cards without warning companies that acknowledged they're assessing credit limits.

Evaluations of a person's financial help so too is synchrony financial which issue store credit cards including JC Penney. Gap and American Eagle outfitters discovers.

The Public Transit Problem in San Francisco

"As cities across the US. Start opening backup. There is a question looming over many of the country's biggest economies public transit trains. Subways and bus lines are crucial to cities like New York. Chicago and San Francisco but public transit tends to pack people together. It is basically a social distancing. Maher Jeffrey Tomlin is the director of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency right now. Streetcars and rail systems in the city are not running and many bus routes have been shut down but as San Francisco starts to re-open Jeffery has to find a way to safely restart public transit. We call Jeffrey at his home. Or by the way it's a little spotty in places But if we are so thrilled to have you with US thank you for joining us So how long have you been with the San Francisco? Mta I started on December sixteenth was pretty intense first one hundred days. Oh my gosh you just started yes. I'm sorry that's A. That's a lot really fast. So Jeffrey. What steps did you take? The pandemic started Soon as the emergency order was issued a cut of military style strategic war room council gets formed and we formed that quickly knowing that the issues around the virus. We're going to hit our department. I so we put all that together at the end of February and then in a worm style. Like like in the movies really. Yeah I mean you know you're spaced out in a big conference room with whiteboards trying to figure out what on three going to so from what I understand. There are some cities that have opened up. And you've been kind of taking some inspiration from from cities like Taipei that have gotten their public transportation system up in running And I think I read that you had like a zoom call with the transit director in. Taipei's that right that's right in fact the mayor of Taipei Join US Which was a special treat Not only as a city are they reducing dramatically but they are having a very very low transmission rate on their public transit and they're public transit ridership is nearly back to a pre covet level. Oh so what are they doing? They have rigidly enforced Wearing a face coverings. They put up temperature checking stations at the fare gates before you get on the subway. Little infrared pens that like basically it goes near your forehead and it's an infrared reader off of your forehead so mask requirements temperature checks. What else are they doing? Contact tracing is a really really big deal and this is another area where we're going to struggle in the United States the the intensity of the contact tracing that they do in part because of the public surveillance cameras. How do you feel about the prospect of getting San Francisco Public Transit? Like ready for you know to have like it's normal. Seven hundred thousand people writing it. We know more now about how to protect our workers and so more workers are coming back to work on. That is the first step and then the second step is having that uncomfortable conversation with our city leaders. About how much are we prepared to enforce the rules so Jeffrey? A lot of the changes you're talking about would be quite expensive What is the San Francisco? Mta's budget situation so back in January separate Cisco's at the peak of a boom economy wealthier than it has ever been one of the wealthiest cities in the world and the Transportation Agency had a sixty million dollar structural deficit meaning. Our expenses were rising significantly faster than our revenue and we were going to have to cut something or find new revenue just in order to be able to keep swimming in place by the time shelter in place was ordered in mid March. Our primary revenue streams were down eighty to one hundred percent so the city is devastated economically and the transportation department more so at the moment than most other agencies because we are so dependent upon transit fares and parking fees and fines and all of those went zero. So that's the other thing that keeps me awake at night. How on Earth do I deliver service to the public in this time of intense need at the same time our revenue has completely collapsed and the absolute last thing that I want to do is to lay off a single worker in a time of economic crisis unprecedented since the Great Depression? We have to figure out what what gets cut a Ford to deliver the service that we had been delivering back in January and it will be a while before the city's economy comes back

How Torontos transit system made its riders the enemy

How Torontos transit system made its riders the enemy

"And now five days later here. We are wondering where the relationship between the Transit Commission and its writers started to go off the rails and if at this point it's even possible to repair George Rawlings and this is the big story. Then spur is the transportation reporter at the Toronto Star. He has the unenviable task explaining to his city. I mean no worries. Why don't you start For the people outside Toronto weren't familiar with the TC just explain what Presto is and it came to be like the only fair system here Presto is a little card a little fare card that used to be green now they're mostly black basically the TD for a long time longer than many other. Major transit agencies was running on tickets and tokens and cash Which is a fairly inefficient way to run the system. They started to switch to a card model about a decade ago. and the Ontario Liberal government of the day had their own card called presto which basically forced on the TVs that you have to take this Otherwise we're going to cut off gas tax funding to the city. Which would be a big problem for the Until the TD accepted and since then it's been the slowly phased in on the T. as well as other. Gta Toronto Area Transit Agencies And now it's the primary way that people pay for transit but because of some issues with the rollout and some difficulties the TDC's still is accepting Tokens and tickets. They haven't actually faced out the whole thing so we're actually sort of operating in a bit of a hybrid system at moment. How has that rollout gone in general so there were some high profile problems especially at the start of the rollout on a lot of faulty card readers? People going to tap their cards on Machines buses and streetcars and them not working. Well to be fair. Those have been addressed some extent. The reliability of the most common machines is has gone up but some Machines related to Pressel on. Streetcars for instance. They had to rip out because they weren't working properly so There is kind of mistakes that can undermine the reputation of Presto and I should be clear that one of the interesting things about this is It's still owned by the province the TDC's a system owned and operated by the city and yet it's very strange thing where it doesn't have actually complete control over its primary source of revenue. It's it's that's controlled by the province and by the provincial transit agency metrolink so they have to work together to Kinda sort things out when there are problems and they don't always work so well together give me an example of the kind of friction. That's cost it's so whenever there are overlapping jurisdictions right between There's questions about who's responsible for things so basically anything that when when a presto reader goes down. There's a confusion sometimes. There has been in the past about whether it's the drivers responsible to responsibility to report that broken machine or whether the presto system should detect that broken machine and that it should get fixed. The kind of mid Issue that I think kind of made people's heads explode was that there is this There's machines on. Streetcars that take coins. And you pay your fare that way but They these machines according to audit were Basically filling up with coins couldn't accept any more coins and no one neither CDC or the vendor of the machine or metrolink's was actually Emptying them so they would go for days and days and days riding on these. Streetcars fill full of coins of Rogers couldn't pay And just that's the kind of thing that Rogers look at and say you know you really need to get your act together. The reason we're talking to you now is because this is all kind of come to a head over the past week Why don't you first start by explaining? I guess what the TC would say is the biggest problem that faces so the the big from the TDC's facing is is very unsexy and answer but their problem is A lack of money to to keep the system in a state of good repair They have a huge backlog of unfunded repairs something like thirty five billion a needed work over the system or the next fifteen years and only about maybe a third of that is funded. But that's kind of a separate issue from all of this fair money doesn't go to fix t transit infrastructure. That's a that's a separate thing but what has emerged as a problem is For years the TDC kind of said that we don't have a fair evasion problem. It's about in line with other transit agencies as maybe two percent. It's cost us. Maybe ten twenty million dollars not that sounds like a lot of money but for an agency with the budget of two billion dollars. It's not that big but back in February of last year the city Auditor General Predator report. That said you do have a big fair vision. Problem cost sixty million dollars the TD put out another. Its own report just recently. That founders even higher than that maybe seventy million dollars and all kinds of kind of rampant abuse people use in child Presto cards which Alleger ride system for free adults can easily get a hold on them. So there's that's going on a lot. Just hopping over Fare Gates for instance and just simply not paying on vehicles So they've started to pay attention to that right that they Are Hiring more fair vision officers and kind of ramping up efforts to to urge their riders to pay. Tell me about the posters. That are everywhere. City right yeah. So riders have started to see As part of this kind of increased efforts The launched this ad campaign. Just telling people to pay. It's kind of Trying to attack some of the I guess rationale that that riders don't pay their signs. That say you know having quotations like it's no big deal and then the TDC's messages well. It is a big deal and there's no excuse to not pay your fair. And they warn of the fine is up to four hundred. Twenty five dollars ended the CDC AD campaign even warns of facing criminal charges for for fare evasion. Which is an extremely rare thing. I I've never really heard of that happening. But they're sending the message that there are serious consequences for not paying your fair. And where does the enforcement come into this? So they've started to hire more transit officers. I can't remember the exact number but I think they're ramping up to close to two hundred and you're starting to see them much more frequently on On transit vehicles People are asking. Check your fair. And that of course has some concerns People are always concerned. Of course that whenever law enforcement sources or quasi law enforcement officers have discretion over who? They're going to confront that they're going to confront. Certain groups of people started a series of stories last year. That showed that there's some evidence that black writers are stopped more frequently than Or disproportionately frequently compared to other groups And we've seen actually cases of The CDC settled Allegations of racial profiling against it by a young writer who was Violently tackled? Think it's fair to say by three officers. So there's been a lot of concerns over those kind of Activities so to put this in. I guess a little bit of context for listeners. Outside the city no person in any city really loves their public transit. At least everybody has complaints about How's the relationship between the TC and it's writers right now. Particularly this week I try not to write a lot of stories that just kind of focus on people being upset at the TC. And the reason I do that is just because they're always people's upset at the TDC and sometimes they rightfully upset at the DC. Sometimes they're not really upset at the. Td People get really upset or a subway delay when someone jumped on the tracks in in front of the the subway train. I mean that's not the TDC doesn't want that People Complain About Public Transit. Like that's not the conversation we're having. There's something bigger going and I just should preface it by and just add that in some ways. Tdc's actually very good system is extensive bus network that goes across the whole city that That you can ride across the whole city single fair. That kind of thing is sort of not common in other North American cities necessarily. But you are seeing yeah. There's kind of a baseline level of frustration. But why I wanted to write a story over the last couple of days about the relationship between the T. C. N. N.'s writers is. It does seem that this kind of social contract. I guess between riders and this Public Transit Agency are starting to get a little frayed. And I think it's centers on this Fare evasion campaigns to some extent because the message

Bombardier Shed Snowmobiles for Jets, Trains. Now, It's Giving Up Both.

"First story comes from Forbes. Airbus buys bombard. Ea Out of Commercial Aviation for five hundred ninety one million dollars so this is by Marisa Garcia one of my favorites aviation journalists in with this deal bombarded is fully exited the series slash a two twenty program. I think Eh everyone knows that. Airbus took fifty point zero one percent ownership of the program in two thousand seventeen but now with this deal bombarded gets five hundred ninety one million dollars with five hundred. Thirty one million of dollars paid at closing and then the The balanced the remaining sixty million dollars is to be paid in installments through Twenty Twenty One Bombarded says with his deal they avoid a roughly seven hundred million dollar payment that it would have to make to fund production expansion so I think that's That's some serious motivation to to sell the rest to two Airbus an individual era. I guess if absolutely it is but it it gets better because today to A. They announced that they're not getting rid of their business. Aviation a division in that. They've decided to sell their their rail Rail meaning cars with steel wheels. That travel on the ground but So it's been it's been pretty Pretty volatile for the from the bombard employees. A bet you they're well they're probably breathing somewhat easier but they don't breathe completely easier until this is all closed. But it's a good place to start. I was Kinda surprised on the move to sell the the rail part of the business. And and keep the the business aviation but I thought the plane was going to be just the opposite but I don't know maybe I'm the only one that got surprised by that. Well just kind of odd because they had already sold several other portions of their aviation business so it kind of looked like they were getting out of that. So you're right. This does seem like a reversal of sorts. Okay but don't you guys don't understand bombarded by you really don't all right David Hillis? Tell us about bombarded. It's all about the snowmobile. I think he's right. I mean nothing else matters to bombard ebay. But they're Canadian snowmobiles. I mean I think that I think we should recognize that. There's nothing more important to Canadians than maybe Snowmobiles and snow and whatever that sport is where they brushed the puck down the ice and all letters can be sent directly to David Dot Com. All the Canadian listeners may not be happy but hear about this. I bought bombard. Ea problem with Bombardier was they ended up diversifying way. Way Too much. And I joke about snowmobiles but they do make snowmobiles and trains and airplanes. And you can't have that sort of conglomeration of manufacturing and and keep it together for any length of time. I mean without without government. Subsidy so I I just a little bit. But there's some truth in jest that you know they might actually eventually only be down to snowmobiles. Even though I believe the rail division was still profitable. That's what I what I don't understand. Well they did matter of choosing I mean because they owes serious money to the financial institutions. Up there Although I don't know that they're all in Canada I'm sure they most of them are but I think I saw something today. That when the Rail Sector Deal closes they're they're going to get something like six billion dollars or or something to put up against the nine billion that they oh so to them it was again. I. I don't know that they would have gotten that kind of money for the For the business side. Yeah 'cause the are one that would probably want. It is is textron. Well funny should mention that David. I was just going to bring up. I agree with your comments about conglomerates getting into too many different businesses so I brought up the textron homepage just to see what other kinds of businesses they have. Besides aviation and they make the The cushman vehicles. They make easy. Go Golf Carts. They make Arctic cat snowmobiles. They've got Jacobson specialized TURF CARA vehicles for cutting grass In the list goes on and on and on so it is kind of interesting parallel that You know textron has a kind of a similarly diverse group of products and they are leader in the aviation industry. That being said. I don't know how we're doing how well they're doing. I'm sure it's probably varies by by business unit. But it's interesting. I mean. I have a helicopter in my restoration facility that was built by Kelvinator. The washing machine company. Okay so I get diversification Does your laundry for you as well right.

"Space to multiple restaurants workers in a single dark kitchen may prep meals for say Wendy's sweet Greens and host of independent restaurants. All at once what? These ghosts kitchens have in common is what's not. Their consumers. Do Not darken their doors. There are no signs advertising delicious meals. No tables and chairs know waiters and waitresses. Just spaces were delivery drivers lineup to pick up their latest stash of Burgers and onion rings. Some like cloud kitchen owned by Uber's ousted. Ceo Travis Kalanick's go to great lengths to hide their kitchens. Locations calendar clearly takes the ghost named seriously. Here's what else they have in common. They are suddenly everywhere. Funded by investors hungry to take advantage of our seemingly insatiable desire to eat our meals on the couch. In the office. Kalanick's new venture has been buying up suitable real estate in the US. India and China according to Fortune magazine funding growth with four hundred million dollars of cash from the Saudi government. Last week ghost kitchen company TOPI which already has thirty locations announced it had secured another sixty million dollars in funding to build out fifty more kitchens in the US Saudi Arabia Dubai Kuwait and the UK.

You're an independent chef dreaming of opening your own restaurant but without a million dollars to spare well. You can test your recipes and a ghost kitchen and create a virtual restaurant that exists only on a delivery. App like Grub Hub. Now you can get started for thousands of dollars and build a storefront or by a food truck only after you prove the concept if ever the promises and statistics have been so overwhelming in such a short time but now observers say there may be too many ghost kitchens. Investors have sunk at least five billion dollars into the new industry since two thousand eighteen. The Wall Street Journal reports restaurant business questions whether it's a setup for a bubble especially should a recession set in. Here's the logic when employment looked shakier. We lose a job. We start cooking again. Takeout sales Wayne and ghost. Kitchens can't fill their spaces. Ghost kitchens become ghost towns. I suppose you could say moreover there's already a backlash against some delivery services which have to keep growing to feed the ghost kitchen pipeline chains like olive garden in. Texas roadhouse are shunning third party delivery reports industry publication FSR restaurant executives at these restaurants. Say Third Party. Delivery hurts business. Diverting potential customers who would otherwise dine in order drinks at the bar and develop bonds the bartender in waitstaff. Some say their food doesn't travel well. And if it arrives at a customer's home or office cold well. The restaurant gets blamed. Not Grub Hubbard posts. Mates FSR says these restaurant leaders also questioned the wisdom of paying high commissions to outside delivery services for an outcome that well while it can raise revenues by twenty or thirty percent can shrink profits nearly as much still plenty of business leaders.

"This is about a guy who allegedly made sixty million dollars overseas didn't wanna pay taxes on it, but did want to spend it on fancy suits and Yankee season ticket packages and landscaping services in the Hamptons. And that's kind of a cut and dry thing. There's a box and your tax returns that asks you if you could, you know if you have any overseas Bank accounts and you're supposed to disclose them, Manafort didn't didn't click that one. So we'll see what the sort of the Bank component of this ends up with. But the closest we get to the campaign is really the suggestion that manafort's gave. Sort of a campaign job and potentially some encouragement for a White House or a government job to a banker who was providing allegedly fraudulent loans to him. And that would reveal more than just the tax evasion that would look like an attempt to use the campaign. I mean the the question of why this person who was so greedy that he didn't wanna pay taxes but seem so benevolent. He worked for free on this campaign. So I think I think those of us who have written about Manafort for awhile, have a general sense that he was quite a freelancer throughout his career, and that means that he was sort of cutting deals, viewed himself as an entrepreneur. And I think a big question in terms of the overall sort of gist of Manafort and his case is going to be to what degree he was doing. Anything that had his his motives and what he was up to really had anything to do with campaign at all. I mean, we've seen from some emails that have. Have been released from his correspondence with Constantine, Nick, that they were trying to figure out how to get more money out of Oleg their pasta. And obviously, Paul Manafort was allegedly interested in trying to use his position to get something out of a Bank. So you're not. This has nothing to do with that. When you say freelancer, another word that arises is hustler. And the question is whether he was actually hustling the Trump campaign in a way that might reflect poorly on their judgment and management, but ultimately in their argument would make them look more like victims than co conspirators. I'm not totally sure whether it's even a question that it doesn't reflect poorly or doesn't reflect well on the campaign that they chose. Paul Manafort given his history. I think that one is probably cut and dry without a court case. But absolutely. I mean, the question is, what did he what was he trying to sell and how does any of this relate to the campaign? And again, there's no reason it has to. There's absolutely no. The reason why a guy who was allegedly hiding sixty million dollars can't go on trial in America for hiding sixty million dollars from the, and that's all it could be. Let me ask you this, the sixty million. What are your going to take from this? It's very hard to wrap anyone's head around the idea that the most brilliant international consulting in the world could be worth that much. Yeah, it's having seen some of the documents in the financial transfers. I still have a hard time imagining myself. And I guess I would say that these guys are very good at selling their own services. The I mean, the money came in dribs and drabs and large lump sums. And I mean, as I said, though, that sort of what work he did earn, it is almost extraneous. In fact, it is extremist really to this to this trial. The important thing is whether or not he disclosed it and was he spending it in the US without without letting the government know that he had it and that right there is a felony. Do you see anything that could happen that would make him flip. So I think the question that you're asking there would depend on him actually having something to flip about. I mean, I don't know that I view him as being a loyalist and I think that's kind of an open question..
