Wall Street Journal Editorial Board Explains Joe Biden's COVID Failures
"First, these statistical numbers, I mean, The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes President Biden may not recall what he said during a 2021 campaign debate last fall, but Americans should, anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America. COVID deaths this year have now surpassed the toll in 2020. Wall Street Journal points out it would shame that mister Biden has done no better than Donald Trump in defeating COVID. Despite the benefit of vaccines better therapies and more clinical experience. The left politicized COVID by holding mister Trump responsible for a disease that was always going to be hard to defeat. Biden said, if the president had done his job, all the people would still be alive. The Wall Street Journal says that was his false as anything mister Trump has ever said. But most journalists and experts agreed with the basic premise, mister Trump had blood on his hands. The world's top medical journals called for mister Trump's defeat. The Wall Street Journal writes about Biden's COVID death milestone. Because of the Trump administration's preparation they say, the U.S. led most of the world in vaccinations. Yeah, mister Biden had no plan to deal with a large numbers of vaccine holdouts other than to deride them. He missed his goal of getting 70% of adults vaccinated by July 4th, but proclaimed victory nonetheless. Biden blamed Republican governors and unvaccinated conservatives. Yet blacks and young people have also shown resistance reluctance to get vaccinated. They don't tend to be Republican, see Nicki Minaj and Kyrie
Suspect Released From Jail Days Before Parade Tragedy
"The Milwaukee prosecutor. The DA, what he had done was free. He had been freed on a $1000 bond. He has a record of incredible violence. He tried to run over. Was his girlfriend? Yes. Brooks had a long rap sheet, Wall Street Journal, and the Milwaukee county district attorney's office said he had been out on a $1000 bond. What is the bummed for those who participated in the January 6th events in the capital? There is no pond. We're living in an increasingly dictatorial country because of the left. The only reason you would not acknowledge that is you are afraid to. It's very hard to acknowledge at a certain point in life you've been wrong your whole life. In thinking that the Democratic Party was a force for good, or that The New York Times was a truth teller. Or that universities were positive educational experiences and gave wisdom. It's very hard. My heart breaks for such people. There's a book about such people. The God that failed. It's written by people who believed in communism in the 30s and 40s. When you believe in something your whole life and you then you realize, like this teacher, who wrote this piece that I will read to you. I so admired my shallow teachers and the teaching profession and the teachers union. And then I was awakened. Most of my fellow teachers are morons.

Inflation Crushes the Poor and Middle Class, Not the Wealthy
"The issue with inflation as I said is it crushes the middle class and the poor More than the wealthy And why is that Well think it through It's pretty common sense The wealthy have assets as a means to offset to offset the inflate you hedge against inflation Some of them have actual inflation based instruments like tips bonds treasury inflation protected securities They're protected against inflation You get a certain return plus inflation But it's not just that some of them are Bitcoin crypto gold real estate land holding securities holdings equity and they have this stuff knowing that the value of that the nominal value of that goes up with inflation There's a reason you're paying more for a home as a Wall Street Journal indicated today now than you were a year ago That's inflation too it's real The price is going up Now that think about it Who owns those assets Who has gold Crypto expensive baseball cards Comic books Whatever Bitcoin Ether Who has this stuff Is it the poor middle class Maybe the middle class has some of it but no rich people do Inflation doesn't hurt them as much as it hurts the poor in the middle class
Renewable Energy Can't Be Achieved by a Ban on Fossil Fuels
"Wrote a piece in The Wall Street Journal, which you should all be aware of. How destructive the green activists the fanatics of our day are to poor countries. This is by the president, Yoweri Museveni. President of Uganda, Africa can not sacrifice its future prosperity for western climate goals. The continent should balance its energy mix not rush straight toward renewables. Even though that will likely frustrate some of those gathering, at the global climate conference in Glasgow. I'll continue reading from it, but I want you to understand the issue it's very simple. The west got its prosperity thanks to fossil fuels. No fossil fuel, no energy, no west. Fossil fuels have been one of the greatest blessings in the history of mankind. What the selfish, rich white. That's really who it's ironic that I would use the term, but that's who it is. Selfish, rich, bored, that's incredibly important. That's who make up the environmentalist movement. Selfish, rich, white, bored, people, who need some meaning in their lives, and saving the world is as meaningful as it gets, isn't it? So if you destroy the western west's economy, and make impossible for poor countries to develop. What the hell? Their wealthy enough to withstand it. And I make them feel great to boot. So we're telling countries that now want to get wealthy like the west. You can't. We used fossil fuels. You can't. You and Uganda? You need wind turbines.
Rep. Nicole Malliotakis: The Infrastructure Bill Is 'Incredibly' Important for Aging Cities Like New York
"Right, let's listen to Nicole malli attack. This is the congresswoman from New York. Again, I've always liked her. So disappointed that she voted with 12 other Republicans in the House and rescued the Biden agenda as The Wall Street Journal editorial which I'm going to share with you points out. Listen to her comments to Bill hemmer and Dana perino this morning on Fox News. 19 Republican senators voted for it as well. But for those who did not, they just think this is a bad Bill. Why did it get your yes vote? Well, this bill, look, I read this bill, and it is covered to cover infrastructure. $350 billion is going to roads highways and bridges, which you would consider traditional infrastructure, and in the other 550 billion is for ports, airports, seaports, ferry systems, coastal resiliency projects, like the east or seawall that's so important to my district. Sewer systems, which is so incredibly important following Ida, the damage that took place in New York City, upgrading our subway signals to a communication based train control. We're still relying on pre World War II equipment in some subways. So for an aging city like New York City, this bill was incredibly important. And the reality is is that this is the type of investment that people actually pay taxes for those basic infrastructure needs that you expect from government, but have been neglected for decades. And as you reported earlier, I also believe that we significantly took away the leverage from the socialist squad. It is why AOC and the others voted against it because they knew that if the true infrastructure Bill passed, the spotlight would go onto their social spending bill that includes the IRS agents. It includes the Amnesty. It includes giveaways to those who are in the country illegally, the taxes, the vaccine mandates and penalties, all of that that we remain opposed to and we are going to fight tooth and nail with the moderate Democrats to

"Go ahead They elected winsome seers as lieutenant governor She will be the first African American woman to be elected statewide in Virginia history It's The Wall Street Journal Nice try But invoking the name of lieutenant governor elect winsome Sears doesn't prove my assertion wrong about the role of race in the Virginia governor's election Not in the least Look voting for someone black does not grant absolution from racism It's not because people voted for somebody who's black They voted for somebody despite her race That's the point Martin Luther King Not Derek bell Are you too stupid to understand He obsessed with your racist hate to get it People go to the polls white racist go to the polls and say I'm going to vote for a black person a pro I'm not a white racist Just listen to how pathetic And how irrational this clown
After Igor Danchenko Indictment, Look at the FBI and Democrats' Activity
"And now Durham has obtained an indictment of this guy eager Dan shanko Russian provided the information for the dossier He's charged with lying to the FBI but you know the real story here is the intersection between the Democrats the FBI investigation the phony claims that were made who knew what when and how all this was just a giant lie That's what we know That's what we know Kimberly strasser on The Wall Street Journal points out very very important point Never forget the original claim According to the FBI Democrats and the media mister Trump harbored secret and nefarious ties with Russia We knew that because his mother Jones explained that a 2016 article that became the reigning storyline Christopher Steele was a credible source with a proven record of providing reliable sensitive and important information He had come across troubling evidence of Trump's collusion He brought it to the U.S. law enforcement he brought it to the federales right And then it took a year a year for congressional investigators to reveal that dossier had in fact been commissioned by this opposition research firm known as fusion GPS We all know that right Fusion GPS working for the Democrat party working for Hillary Clinton's campaign And then they all started lying about it They all started lying
GOP Election Success Deals Blow to Democrats
"Let me do the rundown because I'm still in a great mood. Jenkins, Virginia win offers midterm road map for GOP warning for Democrats, opines, the headline of The Wall Street Journal this morning. Voters punish Democrats and lift amid left drip according to axios. A couple of great quotes in the story this morning. Clearly, the president's drop in favorability made it very difficult for the democratic nominee to stay above water. Democratic Jerry Conley told axios D.C. in my colleague selection night event in Tyson's quarter, Virginia. That's what happened. A senior aide to New Jersey Democrat told axios alania Trini, quote, it's insanely clear. The party must reorient not on center left or progressive goals, but on what gets real things done for family. You would think so. How bad was it? The New York Times has a headline story about a little tiny district in San Antonio. John luhan a 59 year old retired firefighter won the seat a blow for Democrats because Joe Biden carried it by double digit points, only a year ago. My favorite headline in the morning in The New York Times from Jeremy Peters and elisa Lerner Republicans pounce on schools as a wedge issued to unite the party as I put online. Headlines are not the fault of Jeremy. He's a fine reporter. I don't know Lisa. Headlines are driven to get quicks. Republicans haven't pounced on anything Republicans have been talking about schools in red and purple states for decades. Virginia is a blue state. And so the education issue is erupted in Virginia, proving that blue states can be turned red when parents see the indoctrination of their children going on. New York Democrats assess losses to Republicans, according to The New York Times, quote, this was a shellacking. Up and down the Empire State Republicans won election at the local level. Reeling from surprise losses, Democrats sound the alarm for 2022 according to Jonathan Martin and Alexander burns the two Bigfoot republic the democratic reporters reporters on Democrats. I think they're leftists. I think they're both Democrats, but they're not, they're just
Biden Administration Considering Payments for Families Separated Under Trump Policy
"Wall Street Journal exclusive. The Biden administration is in talks to pay illegal immigrants who were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 in reparations. The Wall Street Journal article calls it compensation. In fact, the Biden administration is considering payments that could amount close to $1 million of family. This is as a result of lawsuits filed by the ACLU at least in one of the lawsuits. They've identified about 5500 children separated at the border over the course of the Trump administration. I don't think they're paying the kids who were separated during the Obama administration, but there were plenty too. This is just an anti Trump measure. If reparations for black Americans infuriated you, reparations for illegal immigrants has got to be off the charts. How about black Americans? How do you feel about illegal immigrants getting half a $1 million a person? Well, that's what the Biden administration is in talks
U.S. In Talks to Pay Hundreds of Millions to Families Separated at Border
"You know the expression the wheels are coming off the train. The wheels are coming off. Well, for the Democrats, I'd say like three of the four wheels are off. It's still wobbling on the road. They're still in the lane. But just barely. It's, I mean, it's unbelievable. Biggest story of the day of the week. Of the month of the year. Is The Wall Street Journal exclusive that the Biden administration is in talks to offer illegals around 450,000 per person in compensation. This is to families separated at the border, the U.S. Department of Justice Homeland Security and Health and Human Services are considering payments that it could amount to close to shit down $1 million per family. The fact they're even considering this is beyond satire. We are now at a stage of Democrat lead lunacy that we've never
Biden May Pay Upwards to $1M per Immigrant Family Separated at Border
"Wall Street Journal U.S. and talks to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to family separated at the border The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration Around $450,000 a person in compensation according to people familiar with the matter As several agencies worked to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma Now this is the American criminal liberties union These lawsuits were brought the reason children were separated from adults is because obviously and we talked about it at the time It is impossible to know if those are really the parents or if they're sexual predators Or if these children are being sold into the sex trade and so forth and so you have to separate them for a period of time and they weren't huge numbers I mean the Trump administration did everything they could to resolve this as quickly as possible as opposed to the Biden administration that keeps inviting and enticing people to come here by the millions Department of Justice Homeland Security and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to ready for this Close to $1 million of family

Biden Admin Wants to Add Political Directives to Your Retirement Savings
"And looking at this Department of Labor proposes roll to add political directives to retirement say to this Fox News this is how they destroy us And destroy you and everything of value They use the power of every federal office division unit administration department every corner of the vast bureaucracy Not just to push their agenda but to impose their agenda they use our tax dollars they use the law they use the regulatory power they abuse it again To impose their will on us While Democrats in Congress negotiate over trillions of dollars in new spending this is actually The Wall Street Journal the Biden administration is quietly advancing its agenda through regulation Witness a little notice proposed rule last week by the Labor Department that will add new political directives to your retirement savings They're going to add political directives to your IRA 401k whatever you have directives The administration says the rule will make it easier for retirement plans to offer 401k funds focused on environmental social and governance objectives they're doing this in our corporations In fact the rule will coerce workers and businesses into supporting these American Marxist policies Do you hear
The Mystery of America's Current Labor Shortage
"There's a mystery out there, and you can help us solve it. Some of you have an idea of how we can answer this question together. I think I have a good idea of what is happening, but I don't have the complete picture. But I definitely know the problem, and we're going to talk about the problem together, and then we're going to figure out what exactly the main reason the driving reason is and then what I think their solution is going to be. Wall Street Journal writes this piece and it's exactly what we've been saying on our team because we're traveling the country and we saw the most bizarre thing yesterday. So The Wall Street Journal has the piece where did all the workers go? So we are in loudon county and we on our way to Vermont, and we asked ourselves the question we said, why are the Starbucks? And again, some people on our team love Starbucks, I know I'm going to get blown up by that but whatever. Go to second vote dot com and learn how terrible Starbucks actually is second vote dot com. Promo code Charlie to get some money off. Starbucks were closing at ten a.m. in Northern Virginia. They were open for 5 hours. They could not find the workers to keep Starbucks open. We went to Cheesecake Factory last evening after our event. And I kid you not, there must have been what 20 tables that were not wiped off are cleared on our way. They said that they have only half of their workers showing up to work. I went to a place in Phoenix Arizona last weekend protein house, great place, if you're in Phoenix you should check it out. It's a terrific restaurant. Two great conservative Christian patriots that run that place. And they said that they are paying people as cashiers, $17 an hour, and they can't get people to do the work. $17 an hour, and they just kind of show up whenever they want to show up they do whatever they want. We are hearing about this labor crunch all across the country. People are calling it a tight job market a strict job market and I can't quite figure it out. Now before you email me freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com you say, well, Charlie, it's obviously the stimulus payments, those have stopped. Charlie's obvious the generous unemployment benefits. Those have stopped they're still continuing in certain states, nowhere like where they used to be. Or Charlie, it's all this, so let's work. There's lots of different elements to this. There is no obvious answer. If you think you got the obvious answer to this, then email me freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com because I'm genuinely interested. There is a labor shock and shortage that we've never seen before.
Why We Should Stop Blaming Social Media for Depression
"Erica, I took a position and if you don't agree with me, I always tell guests, it's a non issue. But you may have, I'm sure you followed, given this is your field. That this huge report on The Wall Street Journal that Facebook which owns Instagram, it's come out that vast numbers of girls, teenage girls are depressed and 6% are even suicidal in thinking because of the bad body image that they get looking at other girls on Instagram. My reaction was such is life everybody on earth confronts people who are smarter than them better looking than them brighter than them more successful than them better spouse than they think they have better kids than they think they have better income than they think they have. That the answer is not to shut it down, but to teach your daughter resilience. That's my position. What do you think? Well, you're right and saying that Facebook isn't the cause of mental disorders, but it's an amplifier. So social media is a kind of amplifier of the underlying fragility of many adolescents. So if you take an adolescent who has a very strong emotionally secure background and you introduce them to modest amounts of social media, they may not have that kind of extreme reaction as a more fragile adolescent who hasn't had that healthy emotionally healthy secure background. And I write about that in my first book that you have always been a great supporter of mine and I'm so grateful. But my first book is about how you create the emotional foundation in children. So heading into adolescence, there are more secure, so they can be more resilient and withstand the pressures of things like social media.
Democrats Will Write the Same Movie Script of Russian Collusion in the Next Election

It seems that was murdoch's business strategy at a certain point in it seems like it's still part of that but But it seems like they backed away from that to a certain extent but in terms of the you know. They seem to be very aware of what they consider. The new york times woke take on politics in and sort of balancing the record. A lot of reporters complained that you know they. They felt almost the need to respond to the way the new york times was covering the story. They weren't discovering it. They were looking at the way. The new york times is covering it and then trying to counterbalance that that's been a tendency to a certain extent this whole thing about not wanting to seem woke. Which is there with the way they think about it. Flies in the face of this other tension. They have which is That you know that they're not covering race at all And that in fact there is a lot of discontent that you report on from people on the staff who who do think this. There was enormous miss here in terms of covering race in the country. Right yeah i mean i just really.

"Welcome to the right home for friday. September seventeenth twenty twenty one. I'm brian mccullough. Today a deep dive. Summary of the rolling facebook controversies this week from the ongoing wall street journal reporting apple and google removing app from russian opposition after their employees. Were threatened in that country and of course the weekend long read suggestions this time with extra. Nfc goodness here's what you missed today in the world of tech. I've mentioned already this week. That facebook has had a hell of a week with the wall street journal. Dropping a bombshell story about them. Seemingly every day often using internal facebook documents for example yesterday the headlines were about how internal docs allegedly revealed facebook's weak response after staff flagged human traffickers and drug cartels using its platforms for recruitment in developing countries quote employees flagged that human traffickers in the middle east had used the site to lure women into abusive employment situations in which they were treated like. Slaves are forced to perform sex work. They warned that armed groups in ethiopia. Use the site to incite violence against ethnic minorities. They sent alerts to their bosses on organ selling pornography and government action against political dissent. According to the documents. Facebook removes some pages though many more operate openly. According to the documents in some countries where facebook operates it has few or no people who speak the dialects needed to identify dangerous or criminal uses of the platform. The documents show when problems have surfaced publicly. facebook has said it addressed them by taking down offending post. But it hasn't fixed the systems that allowed defenders to repeat the bad behavior instead priority is given to retaining users helping business partners and at times placating authoritarian governments whose support facebook sometimes needs to operate within their borders. The documents show facebook treats hermit developing countries as simply the cost of doing business and quote in those places said. Brian bolland a former facebook. Vice president who oversaw partnerships with internet providers in africa and asia before resigning at the end of last year. Facebook has focused its safety efforts on wealthier markets with powerful governments and media institutions. He said even as it has turned to poor countries for user growth and quote and now this morning the headline is that internal documents show. How anti vacs activists flooded vaccine content on facebook with negative comments despite mark zuckerberg pushed to promote cove in nineteen vaccines. You might remember how zuckerberg and facebook at the beginning of the year. Made a big show of saying how they were going to promote vaccine outreach. But according to the journal quote in the weeks before mr zuckerberg made his announcement another memo said initial testing concluded that roughly forty one percent of comments on english. Language vaccine related posts wrist discouraging. Vaccinations users were seeing comments. On vaccine related post seven hundred seventy five million times a day the memo said and facebook researchers were the large proportion of negative comments could influence perceptions of the vaccine safety even authoritative sources of vaccine information. We're becoming quote cesspool of anti vaccine comments. The authors wrote. That's a huge problem and we need to fix it. They said facebook's goal of protecting the roll out of the cupboard vaccines described in one memo as a quote top company priority end quote was a demonstration of mr zuckerberg faith at his creation is a force for social good in the world but the effort ended up demonstrating the gulf between his aspirations and the practical reality of the world's largest social platform where the company's aims can bring it into conflict with its own users. Despite mr zuckerberg's effort a cadre of anti vaccine activists flooded the network with what facebook calls quote barrier vaccination and quote content. The memo show they use facebook's own tools to so doubt about the severity of the pandemic threat and the safety of authorities main weapon to combat it and quote if new scandalous headlines in the journal every day was not enough head of instagram adam. Massery went on our friend. Peter kafka's podcast yesterday to push back on those earlier wall street journal scoops. That suggested that instagram was bad for teenage girls. And well this happened quoting cnbc. Adam massery the head of facebook. Instagram service came under a flurry of criticism thursday. After comparing the value of social networks to society to that of cars quote we know that more people die than would otherwise because of car accidents but by and large cards create way more value in the world than they destroy. Massery said wednesday on the recode media. Podcast and i think social media is similar and quote. Missouri's comparison of instagram. Two cars came after podcast host. Peter kafka asked the executive if the service should be pulled a restricted. If there's a chance it could really harm people in the same way that say cigarettes can harm people quote absolutely not and i really don't agree with the comparison to drugs or cigarettes which have very limited if any upsides massery said anything that is going to be used at scale is going to have positive and negative outcomes. Cars have positive and negative outcomes and quote. Numerous twitter users criticized massery for the comparison and pointed out that unlike social media. The automobile industry is heavily. Regulated among those critics was former facebook executive. Brian bowen quote. We have regulations and the national highway traffic safety administration for cars. Maybe adam azeri should read unsafe at any speed. Bullen tweeted kafka asked about the regulation surrounding cars which massery responded he does believe that some social media regulation is needed quote. We think you have to be careful. Because regulation can cause more problems. Misteri set on the podcast. But i do think we are a big enough industry that it's important and we need to evolve it forward and quote massery went on the defensive on twitter after the wave of criticism calling the car analogy quote less than perfect but saying that facebook executive stand by the belief that social media connecting people does more harm than bad quote headline culture. Which yes i know. Social media has contributed to is exhausting. Massery said among his series of tweets thursday morning and quote Yes the endless series of facebook. Controversies can be exhausting. Take it from someone who has to cover. These controversies every day. And i've only been doing it for a little under four years. But at the same time i kind of think that that's the point and that's why i'm devoting half the show today to this because again there have been new stories and new allegations every single day this week. Stop for a second and ask yourself why. That is i mean. Facebook has had controversies from the day it was created. So why is this all coming out now. Well as everyone in tech has been whispering about this week it is clear that the calls are coming from inside the facebook house itself. Clearly someone either. Formerly or currently at facebook is leaking this stuff. So is there a larger rebellion going on inside facebook than we know about. Let me quote this tweet thread from former facebook executive alex thomas quote. The facebook files reporting is incredible necessary and damning and misleading. The public about. It is inexcusable. But this stuff must exist on other platforms to right. Why are they less leaky. Will this disincentivize this kind of research in the future. How do we stop that. I think the big picture is that several mid level vp's and directors invested and built big quantitative social science teams on the belief that knowing what was wrong with lead to positive change those teams have run into the power of the growth and unified policy. Teams turns out. The knowledge isn't helpful. When the top execs haven't changed the way products are measured and employees are compensated so the only recourse for those teams to affect. Change is leaking to the wall street journal. I'm sure other products have the same impact some problems but they are either too small twitter and snap to build these big expensive teams that don't drive revenue or have a strategy of not looking youtube and quote in other words if you're a talented smart perhaps idealistic person who has gone to work for facebook for the last five years. At least you knew that working at facebook would be. Shall we say controversial. Some folks would look at you sideways if you mentioned where you worked but maybe you could justify it all to yourself by saying it's okay 'cause we can change things i by being here. We'll change things. Social media is new. We just haven't perfected it yet..

Most of whom are really hard. Working decent business people just trying to earn a living honestly selling goods to people but the seller rating has become so all important as people look at a product and see how many stars it has without digging deeper. That sellers are doing everything they can to manipulate the ratings to the point that they break amazon rules and start harassing you at your email address. I being really nice offering money. Maybe even when you turn them down raising the money they'll offer you to pull down a negative review or to write a positive review. Most often they start offering serious money. According to the wall street journal investigation. When you've written a negative review and then if you still won't pull down the negative review they may start being more and more aggressive in emails. They send to you. Amazon's rules supposedly prevent sellers from doing this and unfortunately in the wall street journal investigation over and over again amazon was found to ignore complaints by its customers when they would complain to amazon about being harassed by sellers. This is an area amazon. Definitely needs to work on what their relationship is. An responsibility is for hosting all these third party sellers. The other aspect involves the sale of unsafe goods on amazon. Where amazon has alleged in one court case after another. Not our problem. We're not responsible. Somebody dies make us hurt tough. They weren't buying from us. They were buying from. Who knows who. Which amazon does a very poor job showing on their website so amazon. Now under extreme pressure now says that they are going to pay damages through a process when somebody has been harmed by goods being sold. Dangerous goods being sold by one of these third party sellers. Which again is most of the goods being sold on amazon. So amazon stewing this under this extreme pressure but is captured.

"From the opinion pages of the wall street journal this is potomac. Watch welcome back well. Let's talk about a couple of the details of this disagreements. At least as far as they are leaking out of this close negotiation room. One of them is about mass transit and build. There was a journal editorial on this that says mass transit usually gets about thirteen billion dollars in federal funds. Every year there is about seventy billion dollars thrown at it during the pandemic Making up for shortfalls as as riders at quit going on mass transit So there's more spending a part of this bill but then there's also a provision that's being argued for by democrats according to this reporting To take a highway funding a gas tax money and take twenty percent of that and directed towards mass transit. In republicans are arguing against that. I mean red states. Rural states generally less area areas that have less Less mass transit funding in the first place. But also i imagine that they don't want to set the precedent that twenty percent of the of the highway funds go towards mass transit projects. Yeah you're saying the republicans don't want their president right right because the democrats. I think do want that president look in gen. I mean there's a couple of things is one Democrats you know. As as an ideology. The democratic party is part of the group that sees the automobile as the enemy. Carbon enemy all sorts of enemies right. And they've always favored mass transit. Ba mass transit really isn't effective or a profitable has to be subsidized. almost everywhere. it's impractical. In many places you know except for new york which is an island and make sense in new york big car. Traffic is so bad in. The mass transit system is so extensive but in other cities. If you have eight percent say people taking buses or trains and you even you double it. You're still only at sixteen percent. You know we need we. Frankly we need more roads and and Things like that. So i think they start the democrats start out with the predisposition against cars and four mass transit and what they would like is to have Gas taxes and stuff and they would like the automobile to subsidize subsidize mass transit. Now i think it makes sense and i wish we had done this before i think with private feet. I think it makes sense to make drivers pay for the roads. They use right so instead of having like a car tax. Where you're taxed whether you keep your car in your garage you're taxed if you.

"The Wall Street Journal editorial page. Most importantly, the right has the Supreme Court, which might prove to be the one reliable counterbalance and the majority of Howard the state level. But here's the key point. Conservatives long ago lost so many key institutions that defined national conversation including culture, media and higher education. Now President Trump has cost Republicans those tools of political power and policy making. The party will have to rebuild around new people and ideas. Well, that's a change from what access originally argued originally and said, We're now going to rethink things like free speech, freedom of association in this country. That's what the left really would like. Now that they have all of the tools at their disposal. They're going to rethink free speech. They're going to rethink free association and the way they're going to do that is by proclaiming loudly and clearly once and for all that if you are on the right, you are in league with the people who stormed the capital. If you were a supporter of Trump or you if you didn't support Trump, if you're just a religious conservative, if you're somebody who held your nose and voted for Trump, because you looked at the left and left was getting so insane that they were openly backing black lives, matters, rioting and back in critical race theory. Trying to ram down and it is extraordinary level of intolerance on right wingers across the country and people were middle of the road and moderate liberals across the country If you looked at that, and you said, You know what? I'm not into that Now the rule is that you were in favor of what happened to the capital last week. Which is crazy and gross and the people who are saying this sort of stuff are are doing something deeply politically malevolent. If you're lumping in with the hundreds of people who should go to jail for a very long time. We did what they did last week for lumping in with those people. The 75 million Americans voted for Trump and then Bubbly. Another 100 Million Americans who disagree with left on a wide variety of issues ranging from other Children should be allowed to change their sex toe. Whether Americans should be divided along the basis of race and then special government benefits given to them. If you're lumping all those people together, and you were those people. And you know that That's the problem. You are part of the problem. Not the only problem but definitely the biggest problem for the future of the country. Because let's be real about what happened last week. What happened last week was an act of evil and it was unsuccessful. Republican Senate came back into session and then voted for the certification of the election. Mitch McConnell lead the way. Vice president Pence. Trump's own vice president presided over that it was a failure. It was a failure from beginning to end doesn't mean it wasn't evil. It doesn't mean it wasn't terrible. It does mean that the system was resilient, resilient enough, and within a couple of hours everybody was re gathering. On the floor of the same building that had been invaded. And was voting in favor of the system. Danger to the system right now is not the exogenous danger of writers taking over the capital. The danger to the system right now is the complete lack of trust the breakdown in basic cultures of rights. Do we talk on the show a lot? How culture is upstream of politics? We talked on the show a lot about how a culture matters more than the politics that that your culture shapes you the waters in which you swim right this stuff. Do you watch the church? You go to your neighbor's that that really shaped who you are as a person, And then that is manifest in politics. Politics does not change culture nearly as much. Here's the thing when it comes to your rights When it comes to liberty, a culture of liberty, a culture of freedom is upstream. Of the politics of freedom. Okay, there a lot of people today who are saying Well, you know what? You're complaining a lot. But these are all private corporations doing what they do. We believe they're allowed to do what they did. That's true. Legally, Many of these companies are allowed to do what they can fire you for being a conservative. They can They're allowed to not Do not allow you to use your credit card to pay for a subscription over daily wire. They can But a culture of rights, which means a people who prize the ability of people to do things they don't agree with, because they believe in the underlying writes, that has to undergird Any legal system of rights because sooner or later and usually sooner Culture that opposes the rights of others turns into a legal structure that opposes the rights of others. It bleeds over incredibly quickly. If you think the First Amendment's gonna protect you if the entire culture has decided the first Amendment no longer matters wrong, you are. Can we get two more of this in a second? Why This has become such an issue First, if you thought the lead up to 2016 was nuts, you ain't seen nothing yet. The best.

Their neighborhood pool is out of commission this summer because of the virus. So there You gotta distract kids some way. Patrick Thomas of the Wall Street Journal on trending above ground pools and why some owners are getting into hot water. Scientists have warned of a pandemic for decades. Yet when Covad 19 arrived, the world had few resource is and little understanding. Betsy McKay, senior writer at The Wall Street Journal, has done a deep dive on the reasons why Let's see. What did you do here? Well, we went back. You know more than 20 years to look at basically how the threat of a pandemic and certainly the threat of epidemics. Has grown over the years and you know they were there had been warnings going back for decades. Now ever since. You know some of these new viruses, most of which come from animals. Charitably emerging. But we kept going from epidemic epidemic and making a few changes along the way, but not really taking a comprehensive approach and doing everything you need to do to prevent situation like the one we're in. So why is it that we wind up being reactive all the time? It seems and not proactive. Well, that's a philosophical and a psychological Christians. In addition, feel policy questions in a part of it is human nature, right? It You know, it's hard to imagine what could happen, but but on a policy level, um it's it's very hard to get government. And how political leaders scientifically there's to commit. Um, money and time to a high consequence, low probability events as they call it, You know that will happen is likely to happen sometime. You just don't know when and the likelihood of that happening is at any given time is low, so people it's something you can push off until tomorrow. Signified. See McKay, senior writer at The Wall Street Journal. She's written a piece entitled A Deadly Corona virus was inevitable. Why was no one ready? Some of the other factors you put together here to about funding warning systems, the role of the World Health Organization, China's communication, I'd explain some of that. Well, you know, One problem is that as a globe, we never has really figured out how to go on an international level, prevent and Um Uh, respond to epidemics. The world for Health organization is the organization that does that, But they're way underfunded. I mean, like Wayne hunted and most of the money in their budget. Is earmarked for specific project. Polio eradication is a big one. And a lot of the polio work does help build helps the stones, which also help you, you know, detect other other passages, so there's crossover but essentially Has never been a union nations coming together and working together and also, you know. Ah. A lot of this prepared just has to be done by the national government. But again, they're all individually under pressure. You know, they have budgets to manage a lot of needs. You know if you've got a big Ah, hurricane disaster to respond to right now. Versus the the threat of Ah sort of nebulous of a pandemic happening sometime with your money going to go, and that just keeps happening over and over. She's Yeah. All right, so a cz we all know and believe at this point. I believe this won't be our last pandemic. So what about next time? I know there are lessons learned here. But do we put them to use and try to somehow prepare What's the big question, isn't it? I mean, some people say you know what Now the world has learned if he will never make this mistake again. As, uh, as a partial sceptic or sometimes skeptic. I wonder, you know, when push comes to show way certainly will be more than we've done. But what we do enough You know it. It really takes changing the mind said a lot of people I have spoken with who were in government and leave these efforts have said, you really need to start Viewing. Um, epidemic emerging disease as as akin to a military sweat and you need to prepare. For them in that way, so not for addicts. Funding really need to invest in this as a nd wit of a national security issue, not kind of a side scientific issue, and things will come along as they come along. It's really like war. So when you look at it that way, you know we certainly have a long way. Go. The other thing is month of the the world of Pandemic Preparedness has been focused on a flu pandemic, preparing for a flu pandemic. And again much of that work. Those prepare you for any kind of pandemic, so so this is actually happening right under our nose work.

Have you felt more lonely or isolated school closed in March, and what they found is that 79% of the total group 78% of slightly younger subset of girls said that they do feel a lot lonelier than they did before the pandemic. She's our girls more sensitive, sensitive to this, the boys You know, it's hard to know there just haven't been a lot of research on the lowing of the boys there. There have been more on girls. There was a big day in the Wall Street Journal actually, a year ago. By the author of Reviving Ophelia, which was a book about adolescent girls. And I think it was a 20 to 25 year old book that they were updating for the current age and in their research a year ago, they found that girls were experiencing Record high level the loneliness, anxiety and depression. You know, well before the pandemic and so looking at the results Now it looks like this is really worsened for The girls who have been in some degree of lock down the school. Shut down. All right. So you open the story talking about this 10 year old girl named Emerson Chrisman. What's What's her story? What you're going through. So she and her family have been pretty strictly isolating ever since school shutdown in March, they they quarantined with one set of grand parents for a while and then with another. On and in particular one set of grandparents. The grandmother is from Italy and were particularly sensitive to the situation in Italy with that parents spend part of their time is here. Um and so to protect the grand parents in particular they they really tried to limit their interactions with others and also being out of state for a few months visiting the different relatives. Emerson with away from her friends and feeling lonely and the situation really was exacerbated when she found out that many of her friends family, we're being a bit more permissive as some of the state regulations. Restrictions lifted, Um friends started to get together and she was in a different group text with them and thought them talking about their plans of getting together and doing things that she normally would have done during the summer with her friends, So that really just magnified her feeling of being like I'm the only one stuck at home.

Her pieces called Lonely Girls, How the Pandemic has deepened the isolation. Of adolescence. There was somebody in your story, too, or a stat that said more time on social media can be harmful. But even now, even when one of the kids need to see friends and talk to them, yeah, sort of a double dared, you know, On the one hand, it's allowed people to stay connected during this time. But and the experts I spoke with said that it also can make people feel more isolated because the pictures they're seeing of, you know, the friends going out and getting, you know, going out together can make them feel Like they're the only ones who aren't able to go out on day. Also, you know they're together, but they're little not, um, You know, it's kind of there this kind of situation where you know kids texting each other the communicating over social media, But they're not having actual conversations with each other, even just over the phone and that you know nothing really. The places that in person contact where he really developed the social skills and bonds, and especially for the younger girl kind of the 10 to 14 year old Uh, maybe there first, you know time dabbling in social media. Obviously, there's no playbook for this. But is there any kind of general guidance that the experts are offering here with some of the guidance has been foreign credit look, crisis of loneliness. Um, you know, recommending to go spend more time with other girl face to face, so they spend more time outside of the home and try to game more independence from their parents.

"But during a pandemic when there's constant fear and anxiety feeling anger, it seems worse than ever, with some tips on how to deal with bullies. Elizabeth Bernstein of The Wall Street Journal. Elizabeth. What are some of the personality traits that bullies have in common? Psychologists say. Police tend to have four personality traits that these would be Machiavellian ism, which is a tendency to manipulate others. Very calculus. Calculatedly Ka ka, pithy, a lack of empathy and willingness. That's what cops he is. State is, um is when people take pleasure from inflicting pain and then one of the big ones narcissism, and that's an obsession with self. Your article talks a lot about narcissism. What is it about that that makes someone a bully ish? You know, Narcissist believes that they are better than others. They're very grandiose. But often narcissist have a fragile side and they're vulnerable. They they actually are sort of babies themselves. So this mix of I think I'm better than you, but I'm quite insecure can trigger them when they feel that their attack they want to attack somebody who they think is weaker than them. If that person stands up, they just keep going, because now you have triggered what about this pandemic has brought out the worst in people. Well as you mentioned fear and anxiety, really fuel anger, and I think that many many people are living with some level of zero and anxiety is a huge one. Also, we've moved a lot more of our interactions. Online Psychologist have known for a long time that when we do that, when when our interactions are online People show less empathy, and they're more likely to sort of misbehave. We can't even read simple cues like facial expressions and then the country. The public discourse in this country is quite antagonistic right now, and that's a fuel fueling thing and also on social media people. Khun B. Anonymous, which makes them even worse bullies. Exactly exactly. We're speaking with Elizabeth Bernstein to the Wall Street Journal, Elizabeth. Your story begins with your own personal anecdote of being bullied on the road. Talk about that. Well, I drive this little VW bug and I drive it in Florida, where there's a lot of pickup trucks. And I was just waiting at night to make a legal left hand. Turn one that I make every day to get home and there was just a giant truck who thought I should move into traffic a little faster than I could. I couldn't traffic was coming at me. I wasn't going to risk my life. But this person behind me just lost it and honking and honking and moving up on me and trying to get me to move on. When I finally could safely make my turn. He followed me for blocks, honking and screaming out the window swearing. He was trying to intimidate me. He was annoyed. I was in his way, even though I had the right to be, But it was just a straight up fully tactic. That's why I wrote about it. And how do you not to react? How do you stay Calm in that situation. I think you have to remind yourself. Look, this is this person isn't acting normally. This is not normal behavior. You have to be confident. I'm not doing anything wrong. I'm going to safely make my turn. And then I'm going to try to get out of this guy's way. But you want to remain calm. You do not want to engage with the bully. That's true if the police behind you and a giant pickup truck Or he lives next door or it's a sibling, Whoever at work, whoever that bully is the key. The everyone I interviewed the experts was clear on this. The key is you do not want to engage with a bully. If you do that on Lee gets that believed to come back at you harder. That kind of stuff makes me angry for if not minutes hours after it happens. How do you not let that happen to you? Will you go back to all those skills? Everybody's always talking about right, the deep breathing and the you know, calm and call up something fun on your phone. A picture of a kitten if it takes bad or your kid doing something off. Some are a great day where you won the game, whatever it was, but you need to sort of go to those skills that we keep being taught and told about over and over just to calm down because it is so easy. I'm not great at that. You know. Last week I was furious at some driver tried to do the same and If you engage. It's frightening. People are very activated out there. Right now. We have to be clear about this people are living with who knows what kind of anxiety and fear and serious problems and so we need to just now stay in our own lane on DH and try to be calm. Try to let it go because it is a very stressful world. Elizabeth. When do you know it's time to get some help? If it's a really serious situation, and you can't handle it yourself. Have you ever think that you're unsafe? You want to get help? You don't want to try to handle this. If you've got somebody coming at you all the time threatening new. There's all kinds of examples. I heard when I was reporting that you want to go to an authority. It could be your Workplace Your HR at work. If it's a workplace bully, it could be the police. It could be a lawyer. But the one thing about bullying is you don't just make a threat back a meaningless threat for their meaningless threat or they're meaningful, but you need a meaningful consequences when you're going after bullies.

"They're all facing disconnects in large numbers for pay TV. The Wall Street Journal has an investigative article about what happens if you are a customer of AT and T is direct TV how they will lie and cheat you nine every case. But you gotta have your ear wariness fully there when you try to cancel direct TV the employee specifically are incentivized. That they make more money for keeps. And keep when somebody calls to disconnect, and they convince you to stay, and so employees will apparently why do you offer you things to stay that aren't real? They will tell you. You're disconnected when they're not or if they can tell that, you're not gonna take no for an answer. And you are gonna disconnect or they got it backwards take. Yes. For an answer that they will drop your call. So you won't be able to disconnect. The problem is reported by many insiders at AT and T that they are under this intense pressure AT and T says well, there may be a few people doing that. But we're not gonna let anybody do that to you. And that's not really going to be a problem. Well. What I want you to know is that when you were dumping pay-tv from any source because you're going to streaming or cutting the cord, whatever you wanna call it. You want an Email confirming? That you have in fact properly cancelled if they tell you they don't do that you want to tell them they're on a recorded line. And you record them saying that you in fact are disconnected as such and such date. Should you have to do all this? Why is it you can sign up online? But you have to talk to a human who will do everything they can to not let you quit a service because companies lack that moral and ethical compass and are trying to keep customers. So if you're going to let people sign up online, you should cancel online periods. Simple. But you want proof if they if they offer you something good enough that you think? Well, okay. We'll stay another year. You need something in writing confirming that. Because remember if employees are under so much pressure.

Yes, broadly, speaking, this is about sixty five variables are in the metal through all of them. You'll be the night. But I mean, it's broadly speaking this fast party in third party, data the first party data. Not surprisingly, the most powerful, you know, you'll visitation count of plays plays a big role, and the device type that you're on you know, you on desktop or your mobile are you on I s or you on Android? They player they play a role the types of content that you consume can. Can play a role. And then when you start thinking about third party signals, you know, where you live, right?

I'm you can infer household income, etc. Etc. And actually areas what the densely populated have a we'll score highly. So there's not there's not one signal that because if it was just one signal, then you wouldn't need a propensity model that one signal right? So it is a broad range. And they're not a not all of those signals going to be relevant for everyone, which is the suppose the complex nature of the model is the it is designed to be a individual skull people in individual. So why why does this model work best for the journal versus say a meter model? A lot. People now are are new to the to the subscriptions, and they're going with some version of a meter because the hard paywall was thought to be too blunt and the meter is you know, it's like the in between choice. Yeah. I'm always the metoo still assumes that everybody needs the same amount of exposure to that content still setting a rule based on the content and not necessarily on the on the customer. Right. So basically, this is just a lot more flexible and targeted and sort of more nuance to the user right in well confusing as far as like to the user like, I'm not sure what I get you know, as a non subscriber. And what I don't get because the product is different based on who I am. And who who someone else's or what device I'm on? And I mean the lottery the the products the same the experience.
