"Folks this morning. The owner of the New York New York the New York Madison Square Garden, threatening to hold a sporting event without alcohol for the fans, this is James Dolan, we're talking about. It's related to MSG's use of facial recognition technology, specifically lawyers affiliated with law firms involved in cases against Madison Square Garden entertainment have reportedly been denied entry to events because the facial recognition sees them and stops them as they're trying to walk in. The law clerks. In an interview with a local New York news station, CO James Dolan accused New York's liquor authority of threatening to take away his liquor license. So he said, maybe he'd simply pick a night when the rangers are playing to not serve any alcohol. Now there's a rule that says, if you have a license, you have to serve. Dolan said people would still come to games even if liquor wasn't served and he said, he'd post flyers, it shuttered beer stations with the email and phone numbers of the CEO of the state liquor authority. So this story looks like multiple levels. One of the people that got thrown out wasn't even working on his case. It's just what happened employed by the same law firm. So let's just start with, how do you feel about using facial recognition? Which by the way, I didn't realize at MSG has been used since 2018 as you're walking in there, figuring out who you are and deciding and maybe it's for security purposes or other things. Are you cool with that? Let's start there. I'm cool for security reasons. But once you're done on the slippery slope, okay, so now you're on James Dolan's, you know what list? Right. If you're on the list, which we could be, which we could. Depending on what we say. It's going to go up. How do you feel about the tickets orwellian? You're going to see it's not the government in this case, but obviously people are watching. Is it private property? Or do you consider it a public venue? This is when it gets more, well, you know that there are places where, for example, Israel does pretty well in terms of plane security because if they see someone that fits the profile, they're allowed to say, look, you fit the profile. Over here, we got to the grandmother in the wheelchair. We got to do the same TSA check on her. That's right. Everybody else. So it depends on where you want to live and how you want them. Nope, but I was going in a private property way for you, because I thought you might take the side of my face as my private property. No, I thought you might take the side of its Dolan's house, Dolan can let in anybody in this house. Well, that's also a place where you go and everybody goes to see the rangers. I know, this is why I think it's a fascinating sort of public policy issue. I think in the big brother vein is where I'm kind of I mean, if you were the government, let's say China, the CCP. Well, we already know. We already know what the P is at 34th street. Right, we already know what they do. We already know what they do. They can see dissidents or anyone that's even tweeted something. These are Dolan dissidents. That's what this is. Right. So it's almost like CCP. All right. You're not definitely not getting any free paper. Coming up TikTok under scrutiny nationwide, whether the China based social media platform is really a threat to the United States, with New York Times foreign affairs columnist Tom Friedman. Let's go to 30,000 feet and ask, what kind of relationship does the united states want to have with China? Because it feels like we're kind of Willy nilly going into a Cold War. China and more around the globe right after this. This is squawk pod. Good morning, welcome back to squawk box right here on CNBC. We're live from the NASDAQ market site in Times Square on this Friday morning. It's just the boys and raw Sorkin along with Joe kernen Becky is off today apologies to the audience. Hi, sander. Can we ask you about your proposed bill to Jan TikTok? With my bill does is it specifically goes after TikTok, it bans it. It doesn't ban any other app, but it also requires a comprehensive report to Congress on the national security throughout the TikTok poses. Growing number of U.S. lawmakers now calling for a ban on TikTok over concerns that the Chinese owned social media platform puts Americans data at risk, senator Josh hawley, a Missouri introduced legislation to prohibit use of TikTok on all devices nationwide the committee on foreign investment in the U.S. or CFIUS is investigating now the app's potential for national security risks as well and Tom Freeman joins us this morning. He of course is The New York Times foreign affairs columnist. Tom, it's great to see you. What do you think here? Well, you know, Andrew, I think we need to stop for a second. Let's go to 30,000 feet and ask what kind of relationship does the United States want to have with China? Because it feels like we're kind of Willy nilly. Going into a Cold War. And I think we really have to ask ourselves, where is all this going? Where do we want it to go? On TikTok in specific. I think there's legitimate reason for concern. I mean, four ByteDance employees were dismissed by dance being the Chinese parent of TikTok. For basically hacking into the accounts of four journalists who had written articles exposing workplace issues inside TikTok. And they hacked into their accounts and used TikTok to track them. Now, ByteDance, release this. And but that's a very serious thing. That's actually the nightmare scenario. Since then, you say one more thing. ByteDance has in its discussions with CFIUS, which oversees security issues with U.S. exports. Has offered to basically put all their cloud data in the United States in Oracle servers that could basically be monitored by CFIUS or basically a team from CFIUS and a third party. And I raise this because I think it's very important, we have two choices here. We can just basically say anything coming out of China as a national security threat, because anything that has a chip in it is going to be accessible, but my Chinese made toaster. Do they know how I like my bagels? We can go that route. Or we can create context that force them inspire them and induce them to better behavior. And I think we need to think long and hard about which track we're going to go down there. But okay, let's start there then. Which track do you think we should be going down? I think we should be going down the track of creating context where we can basically test and encourage Chinese companies to behave better. Let's take Huawei, for instance. I would not be against saying to Huawei. Look, we're going to let you wire with 5G Idaho. We're going to watch you for two years. We're going to watch everything. If you do well, we'll give you Wyoming in Montana. I think it's really important to give them a ladder into better behavior. Otherwise, but it's everywhere. Tom, here's the question, is the is the risk in your mind that Americans are going to be hacked the Chinese are going to know where people are going to know details about them. Is that what people worry about? That way you worry about, is it the power and influence that the platform could be used for in the future, which is to say, to try to influence politics? Is it the, I don't know if it's a monopoly, but the scale and scope of it in so far as, you know, I've had people say, look, we would never let a foreign.

"See that there are targeted, you know, people ask, what about those innovations in Taiwan? What about? There isn't one yet. If there is, we'll see. But right now, we have seen there is an invasion of a sovereign nation, a democratic sovereign nation in a mass slaughter with mass atrocities that this is an a category by itself in the world right now, but there may be other situations that come to come to the fore, where we need to get involved as well. But right now, this is the one. If it doesn't look like we have fortitude here, there certainly will be others. It's important to show that the world united as they are, only 40% of these companies have pulled out that these 1000 300 companies have pulled out are American. They're from every part of the world and pulled out. Professor fantastic. Professor, what have you heard from the companies that haven't yet pulled out yet? And I'm just going through their several versions of this list that you can look at on Yale's website and then another one, Yale Russian business retreat dot com as well for a sortable version of that list if our listeners and viewers want to check that out. But some are business as usual, still operating in Russia, still selling products to Russia. What have you heard from these companies? Well, it's surprising. I've been tracking for 45 years now, looking at corporate social impact issues with the business roundtable with the founding generation of the business roundtable and that old. And the first movers, in this case, aren't the usual ones. The ones who pulled out earlier were big oil, big tech, and professional service firms for various reasons you can imagine that those three clusters are not usually on the front lines of social justice issues. They were, in this case, those who are staying are a weird mix across industries. Places like International Paper, what are they doing there? Match group here. You give them an F grade. Match dot com, what in the world do they try to bring social harmony in to the Soviet Union to Russia right now? I mean, there's some twisted belief that some had that these global brands, if you remember Tom Friedman in The New York Times, the hope he's not your best friend, but one of his most naive columns was a column that was very widely circulated a few years ago on the golden arches rule of diplomacy. And then any two countries with a McDonald's would never go to war with each other. And this led some U.S. brands to think that this is a way of a refutation of old Soviet

Marc Morano: The U.S. Has a Long History of 'Reset' Ideology
"Like me were a little bit slow to pick up on it because we thought, well, this has never happened. There's no precedent for this kind of thing. In our nation, and we can pretty much trust people even if they're on the different side of the political spectrum. They're not going to do anything crazy. But they did. They did. In fact, well, in the book, I go back to 1913 in the U.S., Woodrow Wilson's administration was when they first had this ideology, if you will, of the administrative state ruled by credentialed experts over all aspects of your life. And keep in mind, it wasn't done as an evil mastermind plot. This was presented as, you know, people aren't educated enough. We can actually have experts running most aspects of their lives and we can have an unelected bureaucrats literally in credentialed experts managing everything from nationalizing as well. The economy from agriculture to energy to food. All the way through. And this was seen as a positive benefit. Ebbed and flowed throughout the years. In the 1930s, Roosevelt had a kitchen cabinet adviser Stuart Chase, who actually proposed an early version of this great reset, literally nationalization of energy, stopping your government control of news and propaganda, his words. And he actually said, why should the Soviets have all the fun? And this was, of course, during the time when the soap Joseph Stalin was seen as this great reformer and Russia and all the progressives were very excited. So you fast forward and what happened is if you get into the 70s well, particularly the 90s and the last decade and the previous decade, you have a lot of these same progressives now replacing Russia with China. So you have Justin Trudeau saying China is he has basic admiration for their dictatorship. You have Tom Friedman of The New York Times decades ago saying that China's doing it right and that they don't have the messiness of democracy. The UN climate chief praising China.

Remember the Elián González Saga?
"Just reminds I love it when there are all these strange political bedfellows. It goes back to ilian Gonzalez in the Clinton administration. Remember the little boy in a little Havana in Miami? His mother drowned bringing him into the country and the father in Cuba wanted the little boy back and Janet Reno's Justice Department broke down the door and they swiped the kid from the arms of the relatives and delivered the boy back to communist Cuba. Remember that? And I remember at the time I was at a conference with a bunch of talk show hosts and all the big mouths on the radio gathered, which is rough. That's not a place I'm not real comfortable because I believe me, I'm mindful that I'm one of those big mouths and no one knew what position to take because it was, I mean, it was Clinton and we don't want to be pro Clinton, but on the other hand, family values, the kids being returned to daddy back in Cuba. Yeah, but it's communist Cuba. It's Phil de Fidel Castro. No one knew what to do. Well, the same thing's happening here. He got Tom Friedman from The New York Times lashing out at Pelosi. You've got Tucker Carlson from Fox News, condemning Pelosi. You've got, I guess, Pelosi supporters loving what she's doing. And you've got the Biden administration letting her go.

Tom Friedman: Nancy Pelosi's Visit to Taiwan Is 'Utterly Reckless'
"The airplane delivering House speaker Nancy Pelosi has landed on the island of Taiwan. Listen to what Tom Friedman from The New York Times wrote today about Pelosi's visit. He calls it utterly reckless. Friedman wrote yesterday, I have a lot of respect for House speaker Nancy Pelosi, but if she does go ahead with the visit to Taiwan this week, against President Biden's wishes, she will be doing something that is utterly reckless, dangerous and irresponsible, nothing good will come of it. The liberal columnist for The New York Times wrote, Taiwan will not be more secure or more prosperous as a result of this purely symbolic visit and a lot of bad things could happen. These include a Chinese military response that could result in the U.S. being plunged into direct conflicts with a nuclear armed Russia and a nuclear armed China at the same time. I wonder how Tom Friedman feels about being on the same side with Tucker Carlson. Over an issue of international global ideology and politics.

First, Asia stocks tanked, quote, stocks across Asia dropped on Tuesday morning, as investors prepared for a potential economic fallout. And two, Chinese planes buzz medium line, quote China's ratcheting up military activity around Taiwan ahead of Pelosi's visit. Several Chinese fighter jets flew close to the medium line that divides the Taiwan strait on Tuesday morning, according to a Taiwanese official briefed on developments. In a reminder to Taipei, the Beijing's air force could reach the island in a matter of minutes. Military units across the people's liberation armies, southern theater command, which is in charge of the South China Sea, and some Taiwan related missions have entered a status of high alert. According to military officials in two neighboring countries. The FT also reports that Pelosi scheduled to meet on Wednesday with the Taiwanese president Tsai ing Wen. Tom Friedman from The New York Times lays out an impassioned case against the trip in a recent op-ed. You can catch a link in today's playbook, but is big argument backed up with what seems to be a significant scoop is that president Joe Biden has successfully restrained China from eating Russia in its war with Ukraine, and Pelosi's trip risks triggering confrontations with both countries. To help create the greatest possibility of Ukraine reversing Putin's invasion, Biden and his national security adviser Jake Sullivan held a series of very tough meetings with China's leadership, imploring Beijing, not to enter the Ukraine conflict by providing military assistance to Russia.

"Dominic choo and avid markets watcher, but also an avid gore for himself, sat down with Liv gov's president artillery Khosla this morning. At all, thank you very much for joining us today. The world has not forgotten the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of the Saudi government. You decided on a very personal level to take this job, knowing who was backing this league, and I just want you to sort of take us inside your mind about that, how much money played a role, how you think about the human rights abuses that have taken place in Saudi, and what you think players and the public should be thinking about. This, especially at a time when we keep hearing that millennials and others really do care about following the money. There are people I'm sure who said to you look. You should not be in business with these people. For kozlow it seems, it's just business. From my end, this is a commercial investment that a fund is making. A private equity fund is making in the world of golf. And they do business all over the world and including in many companies in the United States. So we are just one of those. Foreign affairs expert and New York Times op-ed columnist and an avid golfer as well, Tom Friedman. He joined our TV broadcast this morning to run down the many global conflicts hitting business today. This Liv golf story for sure, but also China and the war in Ukraine and America's role in all of it. Here's Andrew. President Biden and Chinese president Xi Jinping had their 5th phone call yesterday for more than two hours to talk about headlines from around the globe, Tom Friedman is The New York Times foreign affairs columnist and the author of hot flat and crowded and so many other books. Tom, it is great to see you this morning. Let's talk about the call that the president had with president Xi, what you think it means if it means anything at all and how concerned you are about China potentially taking a look or doing more than taking a look at Taiwan, given some of the reports that a lot of folks in Washington seem to be very concerned. Well, Andrew good to be with you. You know, I think we should think about the context of this phone call. And the most important context of this phone call is that back in February, when the Ukraine war started, President Biden, his national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, had some really tough conversations with China and president Xi and his foreign minister. And those conversations basically were the United States telling China do not enter the Ukraine war on Russia's side. Do not provide military equipment to Russia. And lo and behold, China for its own reasons, Andrew for its own national interest, did not do that. Andrew, that was a really, really big thing. A really important development that China has not given military aid to Russia. And I given that it seems to me, you know, my grandma used to say, Andrew, never fight two superpowers at once. It was just a little thing grandma used to say. We now are focused have to be focused on basically Ukraine pushing Russia out of Ukraine. That is hugely important. China is playing an important role in that right now is the time to have good relations with China, open dialog and not doing anything to provoke them because eyes on the prize, the prize is Ukraine pushing Russia out of Ukraine and for that China is helping us again for its own reasons I wouldn't be poking the bear right now. So Tom, what does grandma say though about Taiwan in terms of that being the next sort of strategic piece in this larger geopolitical battle, frankly, that's taking place, even if we don't want to call it that. Yeah, grandma had something to say about Taiwan too, Andrew. Grandma said, you know, I love Taiwan. It's an amazing country so much has changed in Taiwan over the last 40 years. There's only one thing Graham used to say that hasn't changed in Taiwan. That's its geography. It's still a tiny island off the coast of a giant mainland. I'm hugely impressed with Taiwan. I love its democracy. I love its technology. I just wouldn't be poking China right now. It's just not the time to do it. Nothing particularly is on the agenda right now. And grandma always said countries that forget their geography. They can get in a lot of trouble. So what do you tell Nancy Pelosi then? A lot of folks apparently, according to The New York Times, our paper saying that inside The White House are very concerned about her going over there. Just stay home. This whole trip is completely out of context. Eyes on the prize. The prize is Ukraine defeating Russia, China is helping us do that right now. Don't poke them. Especially at a time when Xi Jinping about to try to secure a third term in power, I think floundering at home in many ways terrible COVID strategy, lots of problems with dead at home. He'd love a wag detail option. I'm sure wags the dog option, excuse me. By a distracting his people's attention from his own failures at home by doing something on Taiwan. Be smart, think of the context. Don't give him that kind of opportunity right now. Thomas Joe. And I know you probably saw some of that interview with the Liv golf guy. You probably have a lot of thoughts about that. And not everybody knows how good are your cap gone up at all. Is it what is it all for? I mean, really. Well, this is caves valley golf club behind me, Joe. So you know what I'm doing today? Honestly, I mean, he's a bonafide. I want to get his bona FIDE golfer. In a moment. I want to get your views on this and I know I can ask you this question. I was hoping to get it's an issue related to the China discussion. You're a voracious reader. I know you probably saw this yesterday. It is the New York Post that talks about President Biden and his son's business dealings in China. It's a New York Post. It's not The Washington Post. It's not The New York Times. In your view, would you say there's been a reluctance for major media outlets to pursue that story? And is that okay? Do you think? Or is it important? Do you feel it's important that we follow the evidence here to see where it all leads, whether the president's son benefited from influence peddling or whether even the president himself may have benefited President Biden himself from influence peddling. Is it a story? Absolutely. You pursue these stories onto their innermost parts. I know The New York Times felt it didn't pursue it originally. As much as it wanted to, then it followed up as I recall, not an expert on that story, but yeah, I'm all for getting to the truth wherever it leads. It plays into the Pelosi piece. There are people on the other side of the aisle from where you are, but think that it's very important for her to go there and backing down now sends a very bad signal to the rest of the world that we can be bullied or cajoled by president Xi or by Mainland China to, I don't know that it sends a bad signal for our ultimate relationship with Taiwan, whether we have one. Honestly, Joe, I think all Nancy Pelosi has to say is I'm not backing down, but I'm postponing it because the context right now could be inflammatory. I stand by Taiwan. I'm just postponing the trip. But it almost looks like President Biden does have some type of weird relationship with China. It could have something that if we knew the rest of this other story and where that ultimately leads, maybe that informs.

"Way. Entity, that's still a problem that we have not solved. That there is an awful lot of hidden submerged stock in the web logosphere, the web logosphere that was. That really ought to be surfaced on a much more easy level and scale. But that is not. That's interesting, right? Because I think that actually that much of the same happens now with podcasts, right? Sort of the old barbecue is largely done. But with podcasts, there's a ton of stuff that is intensely interesting, but if it was a month ago, then it's almost invisible unless you do. Serious search for it. What's interesting about that? So this is fascinating conversation because it almost feels like this is the and I had an HTML website too. This is the chiseled in stone era of the blogosphere and then we get to the wood and eventually the printing press and so forth. At what point do you remember feeling like you were simply not just out there writing as an individual, but you were because when you start writing, there is no blogosphere. There is no community of people in the sense that we understood the community of the blogosphere. I mean, at what point do you start following people like Mickey cows like Glenn Reynolds? Other people who are early adopters who are doing similar things to this. And then start bouncing ideas off of this new community of people. I think that crystallization for the community or at least for my engagement in the community. Really came when the Bush administration would insane after September 11th. And decided to ignore the fact that there are profound distinctions between Shia and the sunny within the Islamic world. And saying that really Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein are two heads of the same Hydra monster. Rather than the dual containment. Strategy in the Middle East that the United States had followed ever since well, you know, ever since Ronald Reagan, right? That we do not like sad. The saying, we do not like the I have to call the Khomeini and his successors rather fortunately for us, they hate each other more than they hate us. And while it's grossly immoral to encourage them to war and threaten on each other, it is by and large a good thing for the great power interests of the United States narrowly construed for that to happen. Even if not of hopes for a global utopian kantian peace, that that was where the U.S. was until September 11th, 2001. And immediately afterwards, there's this shift, right? That the Bush administration likes every individual Muslim, especially their partners and friends associated with the Carlisle group. And with the House of Saud, kind of asks Saba. But you know the Islamic terrorist Hydra is a single unified thing that we are going to as Tom Friedman once said, you know, pick up some shitty little country and throw it against the wall.

"With his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov For his perspective on this crisis and what's to be done about it welcome down New York Times columnist Tom Friedman and author of many books but most recently thank you for being late An optimist's guide to thriving in the age of acceleration So Tom thank you so much for being back with us You had a column in New York Times this week terrific time I think the title was something like marry me or I'll kill you talking about mister Putin The president of Russia And I guess my question is with all this talk that's going on in Geneva and elsewhere Is it going to get us anywhere Because if in fact his motivation is as you suggest really a need to stay in power by being a wartime president No talking is going to talk him out of that is it Well you know yes and no really did First of all it's great to be with you all Because I think every day that he doesn't go in is a good day Because a we don't have war and be it suggests that he's really pondering this It also suggests that some of the steps the United States has taken last week For instance letting the Baltic countries transfer American made javelin anti tank weapons and surface their missiles stinger surface their missiles to Ukraine Putin has to think about this He's not a guy known for taking wild risks And the biggest risk to him is he goes into Ukraine and it turns into an Afghanistan By the way once he goes into Ukraine then we have a lot of leverage He's there He's stuck We can be giving arms to the Ukrainians We don't have to go in there And if he gets body bags going back to Moscow he's got a problem Can he get a lot of what he really wants out of this deal without fully going into Ukraine maybe making some incursions really consolidating that eastern Ukraine maybe having a semi autonomous and getting some agreements from the Ukrainian government Well really yes and no because as you said David in your introduction this whole thing is utterly contrived Ukraine wants to be in the west It wants to be independent It does not want to be part of Russia It's got a new generation coming up built around Ukrainian language and identity Putin contrived all of this to basically say to his neighbor sorry you can't go away You're part of us You're part of Russian history You know hundreds and hundreds of years ago And in the modern world that's really not sustainable So he can take a bite out of Ukraine He may consolidate maybe even lop off the eastern part of the country that he's already effectively annexed in collaboration with Russian speaking Ukrainian and little green men that is Russian soldiers operating there without insignia He can do that There's a lot of things he can do but he could pay a very very high price And the longer this goes on he's got to move quickly because Ukraine is not Afghanistan that it's flat Very very flat And flat icy hard ground is great for tanks But when the warm weather comes it's a whole nother issue This is awfully high stakes I think it would be if in fact there were invasion maybe the biggest invasion across country lines since World War II in Europe as a practical matter Given the stakes here are we showing our a game Because let's be Frank for example President Biden when he had that news conference I watched it I'm sure you did He wasn't crystal clear in his message to president Putin He tried to come back and clarify it subsequently Yeah I think he cleared that up I think we can really exaggerate what we say and what you and I as journalists see of what Biden says or Secretary of State blinken says but I'll tell you what Putin's really watching I would suggest that stuff we can't see And that's arms We're flooding into Ukraine to its army to strengthen the armed forces and its ability to resist to turn Ukraine into what Taiwan wants to turn itself into a porcupine where the Chinese say to Taiwan or the Russians say about Ukraine Maybe not today Now I have no idea what Putin's going to do It's all in his head All I'm saying is that it's a high risk operation for him Right now it matters more to him than it does to us So he has leverage in that sense But once he's in there and very low cost we can make it very very painful for him Militarily let alone with economic sanctions Time to expand this out of bed Today as I understand that there are joint naval exercises being held by Russia China and Iran put those three together What does that tell you about what's going on in the world Well there's really a return to very traditional great power politics And all three of those countries have an interest in basically evicting the United States from their sphere of influence In China it's the South China Sea Iran is the Persian Gulf what they see is their sphere of influence and Russia is said eastern and Central Europe And so and they're all some degree you know facing the threat of the reality of U.S. sanctions So they have an interest first of all in collaborating more closely maybe creating an alternative to the swift system that the U.S. dominates in terms of financial transfers that is central to our ability to impose sanctions They have an interest in playing off each other Hey maybe if you start a little trouble here and I start a little trouble there We can really give the American threat overload But at the same time they remember one thing There's only one country the Russians fear more than us And that's China It's on their border It's a giant growing economy It looks across the Russian border at an empty basically Siberia And believe me Putin will be very very careful in dealing with China That's not a natural alliance Well that's very interesting because I'm old enough to remember when Kissinger and Nixon went to China and really split up the Soviet Union as it then was with China Because we thought they were aligned at that point as fellow communist countries Do you think that those days are just gone that we could not go back to a world where we had to face something of an alignment between Russia and China I think it's possible I wouldn't rule anything out That was such a different China though That was a China really just coming out of a cultural revolution Economically on its back needing desperately an opening to America to begin to revive itself So it's just a very very different world One of the biggest problems really this is the worst time I can imagine to be Secretary of State Because it's all about managing weakness Really the weakness of our allies the weakness of our country the weakness of other powers As all kinds of countries you call up around the world now Secretary of State and the leader pulls up the phone and the phone comes off the wall I mean this is a lot of frail states out there So the days of heroic diplomacy Kissinger George Schultz Jim Bakker that kind of diplomacy It's much harder in a world where you're managing weakness not strength Boy that's a really profound thought Thank you so much Tom I really appreciate being with us That's The New York Times columnist And bestselling author Thomas Friedman Coming up staying on

"Minimum to any charity Paul krugman wants to debate me anywhere in the country and have his own moderator if he wants. But he would never debate. They don't debate. Same with Tom Friedman at The New York Times. The freewheeling debate on who injures this country the left or the right. How's that? That a big enough topic? They don't debate, I don't blame them for not debating. They only know how to smear. Let's see. Here's a guy who works for AT&T in Chicago, hello, Joe. Hey, Dennis. How are you? Thank you for having me on. Yes, sir. I do work for AT&T, I used to say that with pride once. But I'm going to tell you this diversity discussion has been going on for a while now. I work in the ranks. I'm out in the field and the technician. I will tell you that what they talk about is not among our ranks.

"About something that I'm very happy about. This morning, Tom Friedman wrote a hard line column on China. Basically, second Cold War stuff. Financial time. Wanted to be China for a day. They were awesome. We stopped. That was his message for years. It's over. The second Cold War is upon us. And I believe after reading David drucker's book, and I read you and I just follow the Republican Party. We're not going to nominate anyone in the Republican Party. For any office unless they are a combative constitutional conservative who believes that we're in the second Cold War. Do you agree with me? Yeah, yeah. And what's more is, I Joe Biden back in 2019 May was saying they're not bad folks. Folks, these guys aren't competing for us. Not thankfully, he seems to have changed his opinion on that. But I think Joe Biden's default setting was probably established in the 70s or 80s, or maybe the 90s or the latest. And he just can't get his head around the fact that China is convinced that they were the preeminent leaders of the world until about the late 1800s and the things went wrong with the boxer rebellion. Returning to their natural role as the leaders of the world. They are meant to this is destiny. This is what they are, they have a duty to lead the rest of the world away from our decadent and foolish and nonsensical ideas of democracy and free market. I think you're right, Jim. I think this is middle kingdom hubris, but that it becomes their effort to Finland eyes everything. And that's the new term for a lot of my listeners who are under the age of 50. They won't know what finlandization means. But it's when you dominate a region. And I think the CCP I think she wants to Finland eyes the world. They've got Hollywood in the NBA. And they're moving out. Well, I mean, huge, if there's anything we know about them, they are extraordinarily competent and extraordinarily different. Except when it comes to labs, the labs aren't very secure. They spill stuff all the time. They don't have great safety. But what's the worst that could happen? It's not like they're going to kill a couple of million people around the world just by being reckless. Well, that is already happened. All right, so here's my question. We agree, the Financial Times The Washington Post, the Tom Friedman agree. How can we spend another 2 trillion? Which I'll take us up to about $8 trillion of spending in two years. And not spend any money on defense and strategic after the hypersonic launch after our Sputnik moment that nobody noticed. So today's morning Joel, which I'm almost ready to send off to the editors. It's all about this whole build back better thing. And the idea that this is just completely disconnected from what the actual problems face in the country are. And apparently Biden's going to be in Scranton today. And I'm sure his message is gosh. This is going to create jobs. This is a great jobs bill. We have 10.4 million on jobs in the country right now. We have support for shortage. And he's talking about greater than going to dump a whole lot more money in the economy. So that's going to help with inflation. Don't worry. Lots of federal spending all these all these works out well. And I'm going to create a whole bunch more jobs. We need to fill when we have 10.4 million and a worsening worker shortage. And a supply chain problem. Oh, and the border problem. Oh and Afghanistan. Oh, and let me tell you a missile gap. We have had missile gaps since 1960 and that time the Democrats were using it and acts against Eisenhower Nixon. Well, the missile gap is real. It's the hypersonic missile gap, and we're behind Jim garrity and I can't believe there isn't at least one Democrat is going to walk into Chuck Schumer's office and say, we're sending $50 billion into my state to build these missiles where more submarines or whatever strategic we need. Is there even one who wants the money for their state? They get it. It's like Hugh, how many Democrats were going to Chuck Schumer's office and screaming about Afghanistan until a couple of fall? Well, I think Angus king might be in there, saying the Angus is pretty smart. He may slide in there in the last minute and say, you know, bath iron works up there. Still want to own submarines. All right. Fine by me. We need more of the above. We need it all. That's what we say about energy production all of the above. Gary, how do people sign up for the morning Joel? At national review dot com, just click on the left side under newsletters and I don't think it's posted online every day. But a lot of people prefer getting it into email accounts because that way your boss can do your reading national review. And getting smarter every day, make sure that your children are reading Jim, you're already as well, Gary, the indispensable thank you, my friend..

Tom Friedman and go on all the time about how in China if if she decides, wasn't she at the time, But if she decided now we needed bridge here. They build the bridge in, like two weeks, and it didn't have to go through all the crap that we have in our government. Well, we used to be able to do a lot of that. I was reading an article the other day about how the Empire State Building was built in about a year. And now there'd be no height of the great Depression, Right? And now you No way You could even get the paperwork for environmental studies done in a year, let alone build a building like that a year? No, no, you couldn't even apply. Yep. But then, Friedman said, a little more recently in Oh, nine, watching both the healthcare and climate energy debates in Congress. It is hard not to draw the following conclusion. There is only one thing worse than one party autocracy. And that is one party democracy, which is what we have in America today. One party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. Oh, thank you for conceding that, Tom But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people as China is today, it can also have great advantages that one party can just impose the politically difficult but critically important policies needed to move a society forward in the 21st century. So after surveying China's enlightened policies, Friedman said, are one party. Democracy is worse. And by the way, that's during a time where the Democratic Party controlled the presidency, the House and the Senate by wide margins, he was complaining about the Republicans, which is odd. But there are And in the A C L u thing. We were talking about a little bit earlier. There are absolutely signs. That there are people on the left who believe they are so righteous and so right that they should be entrusted with installing a China's style single party rule. Friedman that was not an idle mental exercise. He was fantasizing and praising the reasonably enlightened people who lead China. Which was a lie. We now know, um that was kind of the apex of us believing that they were going to be good guys. Well, that you know the problem has always been. You make somebody a king, You know, the wise and benevolent King is the best form of government, but you can't count on a wise and benevolent King. Um, even if they're wise and benevolent when they take the throne, they won't stay that way. That's just humans at work. Sometimes they become villains, perhaps one of the top 10 star Wars villains. You just don't know why do you keep bringing that back up again? I just kind of like playing with fire don't know what you're trying to do.

I don't know that they they think the vaccine is going to make a difference. Do you have any idea what to believe anymore about Corona virus or vaccines or lockdowns or schools or the government's role this Tom Friedman, the former CDC director, who's all over TV, he told CNN Sunday. I don't think the vaccine is having much of an impact at all on case rates. It's what we're doing right, he said, staying apart, wearing masks, not traveling, not mixing with others indoors. Well, Dr Freedman. We've been doing that for the better part of a year. Have we not All the sudden suddenly we're seeing a big drop. In cases. The lowest levels since October. I think the callers right They don't want this thing to end. Which is Pretty horrifying, Carl. Welcome to the Mike Gallagher Show. How are you, Carl? Hi. I guess we have here, Carl. Sorry. Hi.

Yeah, I just wanted to comment on the school's not being open and needing the stimulus bill for schools. Um, I mean, my school taxes. I'm still paying my school taxes. None of that has come back. So my question is What are they doing with my school taxes? Because if the schools are in operation, they shouldn't be needing all the money they usually need. And like, Where is all this stuff going? Like? Why do we need a stimulus builders in school? That's just ridiculous. It's crazy. I mean, what has found she mean when he says you need the stimulus money in order to safely open the schools? What do you need? What? What stimulus Money For what? For cleaning supplies. Schools don't have cleaning supplies my radio station as cleaning supplies. Businesses have cleaning supplies. What are you going to do to make a school safe enough for the teachers unions to approve? This is a cluster. It's a catastrophe. And the good news is And they don't want you to hear about it. They don't want to talk about it. The numbers are all plummeting. Daily infections deaths. Uh, serious hospital is all of it's going way down. And I know what they're worried about. I get it. They're worried about letting our guard down. But what point are we going to get to live again? Because when Tom Friedman on it says on CNN It's what we're doing right, staying apart, wearing masks, not traveling, not mixing with others endorsed. Well, that means living So the this this brainy guy Who never met a camera. He didn't like. Can't stop saying as long as we just keep. You know, we stopped living as long as we continue not to live. We should be good with our coronavirus cases has nothing to do with the vaccine, he says. And in a way, I kind of get that too, because I don't know how many people have a vaccine yet. They don't have a clue. I think it's fair to say We should know what they don't know. And they don't know what they're doing. And I hate it. And I'm I'm really dreading the possibility. That this is intentional. But this is absolutely deliberate on their part. Cause I don't want to think about that.

"$1000 stimulus. Check. Make sure that too. You are tuned in. China. You know one of the things that I was Kind of happy silver lining after the whole covert thing broke out was that my son had to come home from China. He was studying school there. He finished school. They're actually and he had planned on going back. I didn't really want that to happen. We had conversations about to China. What he appreciated about China. Um and it was it was, you know, he's young. Actually, China's a beautiful country. Of course, they do things so different because a different form of government. We have more liberty. They have more freedom. I asked. Well, what does he or do we have more freedom they more liberty than they do in China. Well, I said, Well, how are some ways that you noticed that that lack of freedom? Has improved China. You know what he said. Transportation, especially when it comes to the transit stuff like that. They don't have to deal with a whole bunch of regulations. They don't have to worry about somebody's farmland. If they got to get from a to B, they build a track and it could make a super fast And is that all we don't have any high speed rail trains and his country really? You go to Japan and find them. You can go to Europe and find them. But they don't really mean they don't really happen here. And it seems to be the liberal's wet dream to have a high speed rail, just like other countries. There's a reason why I think Americans don't talk about that in a moment, but that was my son's observation. There's some things that they can cut through their cell phone technology, their cell phones. He's that are actually better because they don't have to worry about you know the competition here. There is pretty much wanted to cos they're pretty much government owned, and they're pretty much the best you can get. And they have to be better than ours. This is observation. Well, you know, that's that's great. What would you rather be there with you rather be here was in the long run. Zone. And that's completely understandable. What I don't understand is when people praise different places over home. I could point out some things that you know this is good and this is bad. We have the impossibility to change them. I don't know if I want change the high speed rail like somebody to public transportation, Americans like cars. We like to sit in the comfort of our own car, Listen to our own music, being able to control our own heating out having anybody all up in our face unless you live in New York City. Other than that we're all about the car. We're all about individual freedom. That makes us different than other countries, for better or for worse. But there's something else is going on in China. What first ball this year from Tom Friedman. He is with The New York Times he's talking about China is better than America. China is better than America. Why is that? What are they doing in China today? You know, Chris, do you know that it takes four hours and 18 minutes to take the bullet train from Beijing to Shanghai, And it takes 21 hours to take the train from New York to Chicago. And they're both about the same distance. I can't. I'll tell you something they weren't thinking about in China this week. They weren't thinking about some knucklehead. They were spending the week thinking about a knucklehead who claimed 9 11 didn't happen. They weren't thinking about some guy who is a Cuban on shaman. I don't know. They were probably thinking about some bad stuff with the weaker is and all of that for sure. I guarantee it. They weren't wasting their time on this nonsense. And how do we do this week after week month after month and think we are a serious country were so deeply unserious is a country right now, and we need to put this crap behind us okay and get focused on the future. Well, that's Tom Friedman. He's a He's a lefty, Don't you know? With New York Times, he says China China is better than America due to the fast trains. Whoa! I tell you, you got like about a half a billion people trying to get between the two cities that he talked about in China. I don't know how many people are right to train between New York and Chicago. Or would why? Because we have cars and planes. It is really keep the books to fly the planes right now, you could probably fly from New York to Chicago for less than 100 bucks. Strange. We're worried about a buffalo shaman. Maybe they're maybe they're worried about the weekends. Do you know what the weaker czar the weekends are a whole Muslim minority group that is being slaughtered by the Chinese. It's a huge human rights problem. They're selling body parts from the weak and I'm not talking about abortion. Well, we didn't really go into that too much time. Freeman did. We were just glanced over that quickly. Tom Freeman, because right now we are gonna be falling farther and farther behind Ono, and that's what's really on my mind. And that's what I'm praying for. Joe Biden think he's a serious guy. He's trying to do the right thing. Tape. Stop the tape. I'm praying for Joe Buddy. He's a serious guy. He's trying to do the right thing. We're gonna fall behind with China. We weren't falling behind with the previous administration. As a matter of fact, it was a even playing field. We were on our way to that. Under the previous administration. Wow. These are the people. Is it a thought influences now? This is who we have to protect our kids as our universities. Get them ready. For Chinese style communism.

But we already have 45 Republican senators on record believing it's unconstitutional, and they're right. And The New York Times Tom Friedman You know, is right in all the wrong ways on impeachment. And you know he's talking about, you know, they don't. They don't have Republicans and que non and in China. And how do we do this week after week month after month and think we're serious country were so deeply unserious has a country now we need to put this crap behind us, he says, and get focused on the future because right now we're gonna be falling father and father behind. Okay. Daily caller said that the outburst by Friedman was complimenting China on their on their faster trains that they have in spite of, you know all the other bad stuff. That goes on in that country and all the suppression of individual rights and all the territorial ambitions that are taking place there. S so anyway, You know what you have is probably both sides looking to avoid a dragged out impeachment battle is likely I can't say for certain I'd say 90. 5% is going to be Something that's over in a week, and there is some trepidation and fear among a lot of Democrats and apparently Biden deep down, But Biden, I don't think has the ability to stand up to his radical base. But if you look at, you know the president now being out of office as long as he's been out of office. Okay, well, you still take it, He's still he's still bringing all the attention to him. Insurrection charges. I'm pretty sure this is going to break down the three separate arguments for the defense and I don't think it's going to take them the 16 hours that they've allocated to each side. And I would argue that the big part of it's going to be the lack of constitutionality, which would include jurisdictional issues that he's a private citizen, Therefore, they don't have the jurisdiction. Um, four of this trial second, I think it's going to be argued on, you know the whole issue of what actually happened. And now that we're learning that it was preplanned, and that there are this was an organized, orchestrated preplanned effort. Law enforcement is telling us that even the liberal news media mob is telling us that even Congresswoman a Costco Cortez is telling us that and everybody else in between is telling us that So now they've got a problem. FBI investigators Now court documents are all telling us that So the idea that shows the spawning a spontaneous insurrection. I don't think it's gonna work. And on top of all of that, who's presiding? It's not. Chief Justice John Roberts says the Constitution calls for no They've decided on Patrick Leahy, a guy that is already again. This is supposed to be a trial. Guy that is already said Trump should be convicted is presiding over these proceedings. Now does that make does that seem like a fair trial tow any decent American? That doesn't sound like America at all to me. And that's the contest. But that's what's unfolding in your nation's swamp. The sewer The U. S capital today.

"More we sent to Fizer that the moment they give us the vaccine will be able to vaccinate and the speed they've never heard of. Israel promised to vaccinate its citizens fast and prove whether fighters vaccine Kenbrell herd immunity. These are the same that are big interest to fight, sir. And, yes, also some Americans statistics That's the other part of the deal. Israel is giving Fizer access to the medical statistics of millions of its citizens to study how the vaccine works. The whole country has one big vaccine study. And Israel has good medical data records going back, 30 years at the click of a mouse. Zeev effect of the medical Data Company, MD. Clone helped build Israel's health database and says it gives researchers huge potential for studying the vaccine. So now I have endless amount of pressure that can ask, is there any progression of other diseases doesn't impact your hypertension. All you need to do is just to be able to love the fact that you've been vaccinated. And then you can learn new studies. But there are concerns in Israel about whether Fizer is going to get access to all of that information. Israel released part of the contract, which had been secret to reassure the public. He last. Schwartz out solar of the Israel Democracy Institute, supports the vaccine, but wants to know more about the data sharing agreement. She says Israelis are not specifically being asked for their consent. We need to understand that this is going to be one of the I would say why this a medical experiments on humans at the 21st century, Israel promises to give Visor on Lee Anonymous statistics But in a small country like Israel, experts say it's possible to trace data back and identify people like who has HIV In a small town, she says. There's a small chance data could get out. Your insurance company will know all your medical history. Your employer will know it. The political campaigner who would like to convince you to vote for someone would know everything about your medical history, not to say about people who would like to marry your Children. And even bigger concern, she says is the agreement allows Fizer or Israel to delay or edit their findings before publication. Would they hide information if the results aren't successful? These are the questions that Israel's Medical Ethics Review Board wants the government to answer a Tom Friedman heads the board. There needs to be told the transparency and No one party can override the real data. We need to know the truth, but he stresses he's not trying to hold up the vaccine itself, which has been approved in clinical trials, and people are lining up for it. Those that are back at the Jerusalem sports Arena. We meet new Hush a reef getting her shot, but a little concerned about data and the vaccines. Fast rollout. I had so many rumors about this. Some say that they won't say the experience on the people here. If it's good vaccine or not, she's a Palestinian residents of Jerusalem with Israeli health care. Unlike Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, we're still waiting on vaccines from drugmakers. Israelis getting their shots here say they're not too worried about their data like No, I'm Ben Drawer.

"Been so much liberal Happy talk this week, jerking each other off about how all this is the end of the Republicans now. Yeah, just like Watergate was the end of the Republicans on Bush after Katrina Woz, and now it's Trump. Please. Does anyone think that no matter who's running in 2024 on Election day? It won't be extremely close. But anyone out there were quadrillion zillion dollars. It will be Because 74 million Trump voters are not self deporting, and neither are we. I appreciate Bill Maher's attempt to call upon his bases better angels because I'll tell you right now, as we've seen in very relatively short order to God. Nobody's great surprise this message of unity, which is being voiced it upon us by by, you know, you know Joe Biden. Administration and their representatives and media is largely just a veneer. And we've already seen the underpinnings of violent discontent from the far left extremists as they already write it in Portland after the Biden inauguration, marching on ice and holding signs stating explicitly, we don't want unity. We want revenge, so don't be fooled or lulled into a false sense of security for a moment now is the time to remain vigilant. In the face of left wing opposition while also drawing a distinction between ourselves and the bad actors who do exist on the right wing and who supported Trump. You know now is the time to regroup, reform and pay attention to the midterm elections in 2022, which are you know, just around the corner guys. Politics is a never ending campaign. Now. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that Bill Maher's rhetoric is being taken to heart or will be taken to heart. On Wednesday, MSNBC host Nicole Wallace brought up the dangers of Echo chambers, while at the same time preaching the virtue of censoring Republicans who do not know what she say. Assert the truth? Yes, censoring of Republicans who do not assert the truth, making it a matter of policy in her to her mind that they, you know, declare Uh, Declare their allegiance for the media narrative. Anyway. Here is Nicole Wallace on MSNBC during that discussion, which took place Wednesday this week, and if we get enough Republicans were willing to do that. I think the combination of what Joe Biden can do what can be done through policy. What can be done with tech companies on Hopefully what At least a somewhat more responsible publicly. Party can do can begin to drain the toxicity out of our democracy. When, when two former West Wing staffers talk. We always talk and list that you gave me three things. I want to respond to let me start with your last point about Republicans telling the truth. It would be my policy that a Republican Must assert the truth before they're allowed to share any other views. And Lindsey Graham, I understand appeared somewhere today and refused to really Go far enough and beating down the lie. I want to read you something, Tom Friedman wrote. Though about social media companies, he writes, this Mark Zuckerberg and Cheryl Sandberg have to surprise us by once and for all, stopping the elevation for profit of news that divides in enrages. Over more authoritative, evenhanded news sources. Why, that does not seem out of reach. If we can protect against counterfeit dollar bills, we should be able to protect against fake news that we now know has the potential to kill people as it did two weeks ago. The problem with making it a policy and then this should go without stating, but the problem with making it a policy for individuals to quote assert the truth before being allowed to share their point of view is, of course, the preponderance of a central authority to determine what is the truth. Determining truth is always incumbent upon the individuals who received information. We are the best filters available and where the danger lies in this over reliance upon singular sources of information and media representatives, dabbling in Truth Bureau's is truly breathtaking and frightening rhetoric when it's being echoed by representatives like Acosta Alexandria cause you Cortez, who herself was And being about the idea of a truth bureau designed to somehow punish media outlets, which which do not adhere to the what the government's list to be the truth anyway. So dangerous stuff, um and important to point out, of course, But yeah. So, yeah, That's what we covered for this week's edition of Patrick's, the angry protester from Trump yelling at the Capitol police. Why aren't they doing anything? And, of course, it's refreshing to see a voice of reason in the midst of chaos, especially in the moment, you know, standing up for what is right Bill mayor being voice of reason, also calling on moderation from the far left, but Nicole Wallace indicating that the media is not likely to follow.

"Recently in mid september. There was a big week of software. Debuts when snowflake unity jay frog went public raising a combined eight billion dollars before that the only weeks that saw greater issuance was in may of twenty nine thousand nine when uber went public and then september twenty fourteen when alibaba went public. Now woods different this time around. Is that the billions of dollars in new. Stock is coming weeks before the end of the year when most institutional investors lock in their performance for incentive fee purposes. That's when it becomes imperative for them to beat their benchmark and their benchmark is say the nasdaq. They're looking at gains of about forty percent. Beat that could drive. Demand as ipo's can of course be a source of alpha with the day one pop but it could also cause investors who are already ahead to sit. These deals out to avoid any last-minute risk-taking because that pop is all but guaranteed considering airbnb endured dash of both up their price ranges. it appears that they're receiving greater than expected demand at this stage in the game. Guys so leslie. I mean the funny part about some of these companies including everybody wanted to do at one point. A direct listing Is just i mean. Obviously they also need need and want to raise money but in this environment. It seems like you gotta you gotta raise the money. I think that's right. You have to raise the money in this environment. Especially if you're businesses potentially impacted by the next few months and who knows what's come with regard to to shutdown orders and the like and. I was thinking about this too yesterday. As i was kind of wrapping my head around this hit. I do wonder because with the direct listing. you don't necessarily get that same amount of interest from a listing at the end of the year that you might get with a traditional ipo. because it's the institutional investors that get allocation at the stock at what they hope would be a price that would be poised to pop on the first day of trading. So if you have a direct listing you don't really have that kind of incentive structure as you would with a traditional ipo. at the end of the year. i don't know if that actually change the calculus but it's certainly something that could be a tailwind further. Ipo in a traditional ipo process. Lizzy pinker great. Thank you knew. stay at home.

The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer
Trump insists he did "The best job" on Pandemic, despite death rate figures
"Get some analysis right now from the former CDC director Dr Tom Friedman a doctor Freidan. Thank you so much for joining us and as you heard, the president is insisting he has done what he calls the best job responding to this pandemic. You say the US is a global laggard on this front. So what led you to reach a very different conclusion than the president. The US has a history of very effective health and public health action in this country and around the world, and yet our death rate is five times the death rate of Germany and even a greater proportion higher to south. Korea or other countries that have really crushed the curve Singapore new, Zealand Iceland but comparison with Germany. Another developed country with a decentralized government that faced the virus coming. In. That's really what we could have done. We could have had one fifth the deaths we have had and part of this is a failure to communicate wolf. It's interesting to hear the discussion of panic because this has been studied, we know how to prevent panic when it comes to health emergencies. These are the principles of public health risk communication there five of them be I be right. Be Credible be empathetic and give people concrete practical things to do to protect themselves their families and their communities. These are five essential things. If you don't give people concrete practical useful things do they will do other things that aren't useful and constructive but underlying all of this I think is the failure to recognize that we are all in this together, we can still do better we can control the virus, we can save lives, we can get jobs back, but that means having an organized response that means leveling with the American people telling people what we know when we know it
The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
Regenerative Farming: Could This Be Our Saving Grace?
"Degradation is a global problem and the implications are pretty massive. The balance of our climate ecosystems food security in health are all on the line in this mini episode. Dr Hyman sits down with bestselling author. Miriam Horn as she. Shares one farmers efforts to rebuild the ecosystem at the soil using regenerative agriculture. And you really you know in your book rancher farmer Fishman. You're really kind of made the connection between the food we eat and the environment which a lot of people don't make that connection. You found an extraordinary farmer. multigeneration farmer who had an awakening Justin cough and a and he. He changed his whole way of practicing agriculture in the Midwest in basically the grain belt. And tell us about him and how he had as a weakening and what he's done in house transformed his form in those around him. Well suggestions is a fifth generation farmer and he went to college just us when there was this explosion in soil microbiology when people were really starting to understand the complexity and the importance of the soil microbiome so that was the focus because of his study was understanding. This incredible. What one of the farmers calls a little city underground where everyone's working together where fungi and bacteria are working together? Her to nourish the crops to hold the soil to build carbon in the soil to trap water to do to protect human health to protect plant health to all these critical critical things so so justin came back from college understanding that his most important job was to take care of those microbes that that's what he was really. Farming was the soil L. Microbes. And that the way to do that wasn't a platform rooms a soil this soil farmer and that the way to do that was to farm as much like the prairie as does he could be to emulate the native ecosystem that he lived in this lawsuit now lost prairie this period that had been ripped up by the sod busters to get to make his farm as much like the native Peres he could so that meant never plowing the soil you seed by blowing the seed into the soil. It meant leaving everything on top of the soil. The residues The living plants dead plants. You just leave it there as kind of armor And the holes like a mulch. Yes exactly but the huge scale because he takes when he harvests his weed or his soy he takes the grain out and he leaves absolutely everything everything else in the field. So it's like a ten five foot Tatami Mat so there is no erosion there's an wind erosion there's no rain erosion. It keeps his soils cool pool. Even when it's blisteringly hot in Kansas. I mean one of the greatest things about it. Is that these so microbes that are his most important charges charges when you plow so when you plough soil and you full that residue into the soil. It's like a big Gulp. Basically for those microbes. You're you're delivering them with a hit of nutrients that totally screws up the the balance of microbes. You get a huge overgrowth of bacteria at the expense of fungi. Yeah the bacteria eat through all the organic matter and respond to it as co two your fungi. which are the ones that are really doing all the hard work they are the ones that put out these these beautiful wonderful finger silvery fingers that bring nutrients to the plant? They get choked out by the back so important microcosm in the soil. Fast us at work of fungi. That actually is so critical for maintaining the soil health and even fixes methane which is pretty interesting. The bacteria hear that right. There's nothing fixing mcteer in the soil that help protect against the off gassing from the cows right well that you know more about you should tell me about that. Because I don't know a lot about millennials. Okay well you grasp cows. The you know you're still going to have methane. It's still going to cause. Climate change is far more dangerous. Turn Co two but we know now that the when you have rich grasslands Ashland's that actually there's methane fixing bacteria and fungi in there that hold back the met. That's why we had sixty million buffalo climate change. Well they certainly i. I mean that's fantastic. Hasek they certainly hold carbon. I mean you look at just in soils now and again. His model is the prairie so his metric is the prairie. So it's how close can you get to the levels of carbon and organic matter and the diversity and vitality of the microbiome in the native prairie. We still have some so you can go measure it and say and just in his you know he he his family had farmed since eighteen. Sixty five the old way. He's been farming the new way for about twenty years in in that twenty years he has rebuilt half the carbon that is in the native prairie. He's fixed that carbon in the ground. Because these again this all this organic matter. It's this kind in Goo that holds nutrients in the soil and these fun guy. They act she likes wrap their arms around the carbon and hold it there and the other really important thing in an ecosystem like Kansas which is some of the most extreme weather on earth the great lands and becoming more extreme. All the time is that if view if you don't plow the soil you know when you plough it's like when you ripped steel through soil. It's like a tornado and and an earthquake at the same time you scramble these microbial communities you rip apart these symbiotic relationships and you completely collapsed their world. The healthy soil looks like a coral reef. It's Ville of air and space for water. Plowed soil is just too hard pan that nothing can permeate so because Justin Justin dozen plow if he has a plan if he grows a plant like a radish or an Alfalfa plant that puts down a big old tap route. Ten or twenty or thirty feet down that not channel stays there when and so water can get you into his soil all the way down. The beauty of this kind of farming is it actually allows us to save the water. You're and complete the cycle of carbon. So we don't create emissions lead to climate change very powerful and just doesn't he doesn't aggregate he's able because he farms in this way that keeps us his soils cool and that captures every drop rainwater. He has no arrogation on his extraordinary right. And so you think about these. These as far as it used mass amounts of aggregation and then what happens is when there. There's drought no they can't grow food and when there's rain the soils can't hold the water because their depleted soils and they leads to floods which is why we see. This cycle of drugs dreads flouts clouds and drugs. It's mixing the whole world up and carrying a ton of pollutants into the water. which you don't want you know when soil is eroding? So is everything else like nitrogen that you don't want in your waterways and you know and it's a global issue I mean. There're a lot of people who think who can trace including the Joint Chiefs of Staff if who trace a lot of social instability in the world and even terrorism back to the depletion of soils to drought if people are starving if if they if if they're soils are depleted and they can't grow anything and they're displaced off their farms. They are extremely susceptible to radicalization and Tom Friedman in an writes about once a year he writes that column. I think there's a lot of legitimacy too it's true. I remember reading this book. That that You know we had sixty million bison we kill them all basically deprive the native Americans of their food supply and then you know fast forward into the thirties and we had the dust bowl bowl and they work connected because we protected the soils with the Bison and now we had none of that and then there was a scene in the book where caucus to ground where the the dust bowl was rolling into Washington. DC into Congress while the guy was testifying about what we need to do about it. And it forced the regulators to actually actually do something about it well and and Justin's family there are people who still remember it. Remember this wall ten thousand thousand feet high and two hundred miles wide of dust rolling across the prayer and thousands and two hundred miles across it. Stripped ten. Ten million acres of soil soil is essentially non-renewable and it destroyed millions of livelihoods and so that memory Murray Justin lives in that dust bowl region. He lives in the area that was depleted in that way and that memory. You know it's what led to the creation of the natural resource conservation service that the soil conservation service in the US government but also it really was planted the seeds for this revolution away from plowing because applying was had really set the laid the groundwork for that disaster
