The Impact of the Food System on Our Health and the Environment with Mark Hyman
"Mark thanks for coming over man. No I'm so happy to be here. It's beautiful chickens running around and everything Venezuelan the freezer. My kind of place. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's in keeping with a lot of what we're gonNA talk about today. I think mark a lot of people would associate you with other topics that we might get into functional medicine the role of toxins in the environment. Certainly food but from the standpoint of health what to eat but what we're talking about today is actually something that when you first mentioned to me. You are working on this book actually. At the time you were putting the finishing touches on it about a year ago I was like. That's definitely something I want to understand more so I can't wait to kind of have this discussion with you today. And that is basically how food is made. How food is delivered and how food is consumed. And what the impacts of that are I mean? What made you decide to tackle a problem of this magnitude which is not just a scientific problem but it's a political problem. It's a religious problem if we're going to be brutally honest nutrition religion. Yes exactly so. It's about as complicated as a topic is one would go after it is. I think as a doctor seeing patients day after day for thirty years is a functional medicine. Doctor my focus is on why? Why are my patients so sick and not always but the majority of them? It has some relationship to food and then it began to wonder. Well I could sit here all day. Bailing the bucket and the boat with a hole in it. But I have to figure out why they're eating the food they're eating and they're going to think about it and go upstream and while food they're eating is caused by the food system and like why did we have the food system. We have our food policies. And then I'm like. Why do we have our food policies? It's food industry. That influences our government policy through lobbying and other other influences that they do across the spectrum of society to drive their products to the market and sell them. Which are predominant killing us. There's eleven million. People die every year from eating ultra processed food and not enough the good food and I think it's an underestimate so basically answered questions. I realized I couldn't treat my patients in my office in the hospital. The clinic I had to go where the source of the problem was. Yeah Yeah and I want to sort of put this in context which is the evolution of this the domestication of crops. The institutionalization of agriculture has for. We're going to demonize it a little bit here but the reality of it is it's been kind of a remarkable transformation it would certainly be akin to the printing press when you think about step function changes in our civilization when we went from Hunter gatherers to an agricultural society. 'cause I WANNA be careful that we're not just sort of saying the answer is. Agriculture is no the end of the agricultural solution. If we do it right yeah. So let's start with what you see as the main pillars of the problem. How did we get to a point? Where the food environment is toxic. Because that's effectively. What you're saying right. Is that if you eat on default. You'RE GONNA probably eat the wrong things. It goes deeper than that. The food system as a house I began to dig in this rabbit hole. I realized it wasn't just causing chronic disease but it was causing most of the global crises that were thinking about in silos that are all connected and just quickly. Lay them out and it'd be good to go with them and details go through the podcast. But clearly food is the biggest driver of chronic disease affecting six hundred. Ten people is clearly the biggest driver of economic stress in this country in our twenty two trillion dollar debt. One third of all Medicare expenses over diabetes alone. One third of all of our federal budget is Medicare. Who was a company would be the biggest company in the world a trillion dollars annually? It's also driving climate. Change a food system end to end. Packet is the number one. Cause of climate change more than fossil fuels. It's causing massive environmental degradation loss about diversity. Plants pieces animal species livestock species. It's driving social injustice in many ways through how it affects our kids cognitive element and a million learn and there's huge academic achievement gaps lead to massive health disparities because poor communities are more affected by these foods and are more targeted by them and affects even behavior violence conflict. We such a divisive society today. Why did we have forty years ago? Wasn't like that and I think our diet has changed so radically. Not just in the last ten thousand years but in the last forty years with the advent of massive amounts of alter processed food and that's driving cognitive behavioral issues violence suicide conflict and even threatens our national security because seventy percent of military recruits are unfit to fight and reject it. So we've got these global problems that are affecting us and then of course that leads to massive political instability because of our food system of climate refugees because the food systems dry climate. What is that going to do? I mean think about it. We had a million Syrian refugees and that created a global crisis the UN estimates that within a decade or a few decades. We're going to have two hundred. Two billion climate refugees that's unimaginable. So how do we begin to grapple with these problems and think about the solutions and the beauty is since they're all connected by food they can all be solved by going to the root and fixing our food system and that's the leverage we have which is so exciting to me because it's not a doom and gloom the world's ending? It's yeah we identify the problem. How it's connected think of it as a system and then be able to solve the problem by going to the root dealing with these issues collectively. So which one of those would you like to start with? Would you like to start with sort of the impact of processed food on health? Which is probably not one that we need to spend a lot of time on. I don't think there's many people that would debate that are there. You'd be surprised. I mean there's twelve billion dollars spent by the food industry on nutrition quote research that Confuses People's muddies the waters at declares. That gatorade is great. Sports drink and sugar doesn't cause obesity and that I mean I could go on and on people are confused and then certainly are political leaders. Certainly get this and I think when you think of our healthcare system. It certainly doesn't get that. Food is medicine. You really think that political leaders. I know you've spent some time interacting with folks. Do you really think they don't get it or do you think that they're just in a difficult position. Which is how do you appease all of these constituents on the one hand a lot of the bills get paid by the entities that endorse these agendas and on the other end? They probably have empathy for the damage. This do you actually think. There's a lack of awareness. Do I mean forget about politicians academics? Doctors health professionals have no clue how powerful food is to heal disease. I mean they get that if you eat too much you're gonNA get fat right but that's about it or have you too much card. Maybe now maybe we'll get diabetes. But not even that I mean. The American Diabetes Association is still telling people eat a lot of carbohydrates. I think we have a real black of understanding of the power of food to cause disease in the power food-secure disease and so there's a real gap in that. I think it's starting to become in the public awareness. That food is medicine. Food is medicine working group in Congress clinic where I work now. Food is medicine initiative hospitals around the country. That are talking about this. It's more the exception than the rule so I do think people don't understand the magnitude. I mean if you Saito politician. What is the biggest killer on the planet? They're going to go smoking or lack of exercise. Maybe they're going to get this being overweight but they don't get that it's the ultra processed food that kills more people than smoking violence wars. Everything else so I mean. I think there was a disease like Bowler Zeka. That was killing. Eleven million a year. It would be talking about it. And it's just not in the conversation that's happening. Even for example Medicare Medicare for all. Has Anybody said the reason we have trouble? Medicare is because people are eating bad food and that we need to fix the food or no. Let's get Medicare for all that's repeal obamacare. I mean those aren't solutions. That would be a disaster if we could medicare for all because everybody second is going to bankrupt the country and let's fix why they're sick in the first

"We're told by president chart Canada's front there's a big fat ugly phony bubble he gets in the office now it changes soon is is the best economy ever you can't have it both ways now I understand why he's pushing that did you want to get reelected but he knows this is not a good economy first of all how can it be a good economy when the earnings profits have dropped okay from the first quarter of two thousand ninety were minus office where would it what what there was no profits okay in fact if you take what profits there were when you hear them talk about profits profits the S. and P. two stocks made up thirty percent of the profits of the whole SMP to Microsoft and apple this humble we really terrible at is nuts think about thirty percent okay of the so called profits to companies out of five hundred what do you not sure but here's something different in this year's on us of a falling four flags negative housing starts which we have negative pending home sales we we just got new home sales are down for the fourth fifth month in a row native durable goods orders we have that but here's the Big Boy deals inverting you know what deals are doing today you're not gonna hear the fake business the the the fake visitors that works on you this they don't want you to focus on each there's two basis points mon between the three months and the ten year Monday it was twenty five basis points is not ours it's flattening radiate ready to turn in hours the three months that one if you get a three month treasury to its one point five six you get it goes down there to get a ten year treasury long term it's only one point five eight it went from twenty five basis points spread now to chew when it turns it is what they call the Oakridge flattening and then in verse one a three month becomes one point five eight and a ten year because one point five six fifty fifty percent of the time you run into a recession every time you run into a crash corporate gadget an historic his sched dork fifteen trillion dollars that's a huge that's that's just a huge yet another problem for these companies they use most of their cash normally they keep on hand these most other cash to buy their own stock back to create member the more stock a buy back to last years they have outstanding instead of their stock it is that if you have a stock at ten dollars they are bad earnings coming in no profits the stock supposed to go from ten down to let's say seven instead it goes from they can make it go from ten up to up to a thirteen how can they do that easy they get the money from the fed's low interest rates almost no interest rate and they buy their fifteen million shares a buy one million says that a fifteen million shares spreading earnings over the spread over one million over fourteen million then the next court do the same thing spread over thirteen and the more they reduced shares the stock price goes up instead of going down and that's what they've been doing but that but here's the problem you should be worried about that people search to see just since since two thousand and nine have stayed out of the market they've been third their brokers a total and put a stop to the go go to the bond market going to bother to play it safe what do you know each match what you missed what you missed we had a gain of over four hundred percent now this is interesting this is Maria show today even with the twenty two trillion dollars in debt markets don't seem to care let me remind you that this week is the ten year anniversary of the market the market bottomed out in March of two thousand and nine after the worst financial recession in a generation and it's a three hundred percent in that ten years and then she went on to say how so many people should stay out of the market now what you're saying is this is the anniversary okay all right so how do we go from two thousand nine a market crash the seneschal up four hundred and sixty percent doesn't sorry because of the stock buybacks but the stock died they actually killed the economy because I tell you all the time when you do the stock buy backs the CEOs buying back their own shares they steal the money from the workers so the workers getting wage increase they steal that money and they do it so they can buy their own shares back is their own showers are tied to stock price so the stock price goes up without profits they get very very wealthy in their biggest shareholders and the poor worker he gets

U.S. Deficit Tops $1 Trillion in First 11 Months of Fiscal Year
"Other bad economic news for the trump election campaign president trump's own treasury department has been forced to admit up that the US annual budget deficit is now more than a trillion dollars a year candidate donald trump ran for president promising to completely eliminate the budget deficit by balancing the federal budget every year and then completely eliminate the national debt but in fact president trump has increased the national debt from nineteen billion dollars to twenty two trillion dollars and there are more troubling suggestions of the possibility of a recession hitting before the two thousand twenty election Jeffrey gridlock chief executive officer of double line capital said we should be on recession. Watch before the twenty twenty election good luck doc said Thursday in London. We're getting closer but we're not there yet the odds of a US recession before the election are seventy five percent said good luck and leading off our discussion tonight Mark Zandi chief economist of Moody's analytics as an economic adviser on John McCain's two thousand eight presidential campaign and is currently advising some some of the Democratic presidential candidates on economic issues and also joining US Jonathan Altruism columnist daily beast in MSNBC political analyst jumping covered the economic problems of the two thousand eight presidential campaign President Obama's efforts to bring the country out of recession in his first years Mark Zandi. I want to start start with you and your view of what the job loss what the effects are of the trump trade war. It's doing a lot of damage. I think it's fair to say that manufacturing The act sector the transportation distribution sectors are already in recession and the problems are starting to broaden out. We're seeing job. Growth slow in many parts of the economy slowdown has been very pronounced since this time last year when the trade really got go war guy going in if growth slows any further we're GONNA see unemployment starts to rise and once unemployment starts to rise. That's the fodder for an economic downturn because that spooks people they sense the rising unemployment. If you're open job positions less opportunity smaller pay increases less bonus they I start to pull back a bit on their Spending businesses see that they start point back more on their hiring. You can see Lawrence how you get into that self-reinforcing negative cycle which is a recession so we're not there air yet but the trade wars doing a lot of damage and if the president continues on the current course we'll get there pretty soon and Jonathan. We saw the trump reaching for Ernest gape patch to commemorate the seventieth birthday of a communist dictatorship. He has decided to delay delay his the his tariffs all of which are illegal by the way they are. He is using a clause inside trade law specifically for national security and there's not a single national security element in a Chinese clothes washing machines being imported into the United States or Canadian steel being imported in the United States so forth so these are all illegal tariffs that the market seems to have assumed would go away as soon as they became a political problem but donald trump is still holding onto them well. He's the master of disaster and he's never consistent any issue and traders among them. He just goes back and forth back back and forth the question now is whether he sees his reelection flashing before him and if you look at Mark Zandi numbers he he says nine hundred thousand jobs under the current tariffs. If the new ones kicked in in October it would go over a a million jobs and that's a pretty good talking point for Democratic candidate right plus who ran Barack Obama's successful of two thousand eight presidential campaign urged all aw of the Democratic candidates all of them to us exactly what you just said to us Mark Nelson tonight only one of them right so that they would next year. If if the tariffs continued I think and I don't WanNa make these sorts of predictions about trump because he's so unpredictable but because his reelection is the only thing nobody cares about there are some signs in recent days that he is looking as you said for an escape hatch and so they're going to put this all in reverse but at then puts Xi Jinping Dr Recy- right then he has trump exactly where he wants him and you have another situation where this guy proves used to be a disastrously bad negotiators so he will try to go back to the terms that they had in May when they can't close to having a deal. We'll see see whether Xi Jinping accepts them. He's got his own problems in Hong Kong. He has his own incentives to want a deal and there's some reporting out of China that had you know insiders are saying that he doesn't WanNa see trump lose his temper so he may be trying to placate him so they may have kind of fig relief trade deal to reassure markets mark ward about the Chinese economy and their ability to just hang on for eighteen eighteen months and hope for new president yeah good point and the advantages that Chinese has a and I should say the trade war is doing a lot of damage here. It's doing obviously obviously a lot of damage there. The Chinese economy is struggling but the advantage they have is that they have a lot of room for monetary and fiscal stimulus. They can lower interest rates. They can ramp up infrastructure spending they can cut taxes and they're doing all of the above and they're doing it very rapidly. I mean they don't have you know the problems that we have is democracy to get things done. They just do it and so that's supporting their economy and they're still hitting their targets. you know a lot of questions about the validity of targets but they're you know they're pretty close so so. I think because they have that latitude on monitoring fiscal policy they're gonNA. I think they're gonNA play this. played a little longer game here and I don't think they're going to agree to anything substantive until after the election I mean I just I think they're going to wait and see how the election plays out. Jonathan read just one word in there that I said that I really want to emphasize for the audience. You don't want to get in a trade war with a dictatorship. No one in China China is worried about their their approval ratings in government in this situation. Donald Trump is the one who has political risk. It's but it you know we're not sure whether she wants trump out of there because he's so easy to manipulate that he might WanNa do trump a favor and come up with some kind of a deal because he could have his hands full with President Warren or President Biden or somebody else was not as much of a sap and not as out of his depth in these negotiations and mark there is after all a Republican publican primary now in the states that are allowing. Republicans say allowing a primary elections. I I would expect the other. Republican candidates to be making as much of this is they possibly can and in certain situations in certain states some of them might even get a hearing on the trump trade war then some of the Democrats get yeah good point the irony in all of this at least from a political perspective. The president is that the damage that trade towards is creating is mostly in those parts of the country that have voted very heavily for the president think about that agriculture the farm sector of course presents trying to mitigate the fallout of the trade right were by sixteen billion dollars in aid but that only goes so far and of course manufacturing I mean he was all about manufacturing and this is manufacturing on the front line. China's trade war is starting to it's. It's in recession and starting to lose jobs so I know this is really hurting. The parts of the country that voted for the president in the last election and one thing Jonathan President obviously doesn't understand about agricultural markets is that farmers aren't looking at a four year horizon. They're looking at a lifetime horizon and they're looking at horizon which many of them hope that their children will be running the farm after them that means market's having having a market matters to them much more than getting a government handout because their market has been cut off and wants a market is cut off it means. It's been the source for that. Market's been replaced by some other country right so remember. The farm belt is the only place that trump has shoe supporting seventy five percent in some of these areas so any kind of erosion. There is really damaging to him. Politically and your point is spot on just to go to a quick Carter administration example when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan Carter over Walter Mondale vice-presidents objections imposed a grain embargo drying up roll those Russian markets and farm us sending grain what happened Democrats get killed old for twenty five years and they're still suffering from you can go when people will still be talking about the nineteen eighty grain embargo because it's their livelihood so if you wreck those export markets as you're as you're discussing there can be really long term consequences for Republicans and mark talk

Why did you start climate reality and what does this accomplish well because I came to the conclusion Susan that the only way we can change policies in time to solve the climate crisis is with grassroots pressure from every state in our country from every county and so I decided when my first movie came out I used one hundred percent of the profits from that movie and the book to <hes> to set up the climate reality project and to mobilize Aisa thousands of people tens of thousands of people to put pressure on their elected representatives and business leaders and civic leaders and community leaders nice to to make the changes that we need to make let's go back thirty one years ago this Summer Nastase Dr James Hansen testifies before your your committee in Congress and he says there's a ninety nine percent degree of confidence for a cause and effect relationship between the greenhouse effect and observed warming? How important was that testimony in your path to climate change awareness well? I think that was an important moment. <hes> in making lots of people realize is that this is for real and we need to do something about it unfortunately in the wake of that hearing and the others that I and other members of Congress Health <hes> the fossil fuel <hes> industries took the playbook prepared by the tobacco companies companies back when the doctors and scientists say hey folks <hes> smoking cigarettes causing lung cancer or disease and they hired actors dressed up as doctors and put him on T._V.. To falsely tell people that there was no health problem at all well that same blueprints what's been used by the fossil fuel companies with the point of bring that up is in a healthy democracy where the truth was turned into power testimony like that of Jim Hansen you asked about would have led to dramatic policy changes reason it hasn't is because of the political influence of the coal companies the oil companies in the gas companies but we're gaining on them and these grassroots activists including an impressive number of them here in Minnesota are really making progress ars you talk about policy. You came within a whisker of the presidency in President Gore I like to think it would have been completely and totally different of course in our country. A president has to persuade the Congress Congress and asked to be a skillful politician and getting support for his or her initiatives but I like to think I would have been able to to put in completely different policies that would help to avoid some of this <hes> heartache and hardship and I still think we can do that. We've lost some ground for sure. Some damage has been made inevitable now unfortunately but we still have time to avoid the most catastrophic consequences so rather than looking back and crying over spilt milk as they say. I look forward and try to figure out what I can do to serve in different way. Just watch you give what we might. Call the talk talk at this climate reality event not that dissimilar from the one you used in an inconvenient truth but how has your presentation changed in the thirteen years since the the movie is changed dramatically in a lot of ways because I can bring up examples of floods or droughts or storms or whatever whatever not from ten years ago but from yesterday or last week and literally every night on television news is like a nature ager. I threw the book of revelation and the examples that illustrate all of what the scientists have been warning us about are all around us now every single day. I think that does make an impression on people I know it. Does it makes an impression on me. Yeah I WANNA get your assessment of where we are with the big big picture on climate change today. We're seeing the positive side rapid progress on solutions like renewables Minnesota here. We generate twenty five percent of our electric power. You're from renewables as you know last year. That's way faster than people thought it would happen fifteen years ago. Public opinion is shifting. We know that a little bit and yet greenhouse gas emissions are still rising globally and this administration is basically a wall or going backwards on solution so what's the right urgency level here and what's your assessment of how this plays out for the next ten to twenty years the dramatic truth is that those of us who are alive today we have in our hands decisions to make that will have enormous consequences for thousand generations to come. Tom and that sounds overly dramatic but it's the case. We're putting one hundred ten million tonnes every day of this heat. Trapping pollution into the sky stays there for a thousand years on average and it's trapping so much extra heat <hes> the amount of extra heat energy every day is equal to five hundred thousand or Rocha uh-huh class atomic bombs exploding every day. That's crazy but that's what we're doing. Now what I think you're getting at in the first part of your question is how do we see this. They're contracting interesting trend some good some bad <hes>. We're gaining momentum for the solutions but we're not yet gaining on the crisis crisis because the crisis is still getting worse faster than we are mobilizing solutions yet because we're gaining momentum we may soon have within our capacity the ability to gain on the problem there was a famous economists in the last century name. Rudy Dornbush who once said things take longer to happen than you think they will but then they happen much faster than you thought they could. I think think that it's likely to be true. Where are solutions to this crisis. It's taken longer than many of us thought. It would hoped it would anyway but. But I think that we're now getting to the point where it could happen faster than anybody can imagine to take one example <hes> when the cost of electricity <hes> pity from solar and win gets not only cheaper than electricity from Cohen Gas but way cheaper then no matter how much political political power the fossil fuel companies have it would just take a complete idiot to continue spending way more money than necessary to create dirtier and expensive electricity when you can have it for much cheaper when cleaner air and more jobs and I think we're right in that region now where we're going to see see this flip over and more rapid change. I hope that I'm not pollyannish or overly optimistic but that's the pattern I see unfolding right now. Let's talk about about how that seems to be happening a little bit. I mean if you look at investors. The big insurance firms Swiss re Munich REC- this changing catastrophic loss model we saw P._G.. Any go bankrupt <hes> because of the fire liability in California right. I mean some saying that's the I fortune five hundred climate bankruptcy. How important is this growing investor risk awareness in driving that positive change you talk about Oh. I think it's extremely important there was a story this this morning about the largest private investor black rock losing many billions on fossil fuel investments and they're still the largest fossil fuel in bed. I'm not picking on my in respect them a lot but there so many investors who are taking a close look at the fact that these carbon assets <unk> are really not that different from the subprime mortgages of a few years ago you know there were seven and a half million subprime mortgages meaning mortgages that it looked as if they were triple. A. Rated assets with a value that was based on <hes> false assumptions when actually they were worthless because they'd been given out to people that couldn't make monthly payments and good make down payments and there was a mass delusion and people finally pull pull back the layers of the onion enough to see the truth of it and they suddenly collapsed and that's what caused the credit crisis and then the great recession well. We've now got twenty two trillion dollars worth of carbon assets the reserves of coal and oil and gas and the stocks and these as multinational companies that are based on the assumption that all that fossil fuels going to be burnt well it can't be burn won't be burned not just because of some mm treaty or some law but because solar and wind is going to be much cheaper and efficiency is reducing the demand for what they're selling an electric cars or a progressively destroying the market for liquid petroleum assets and it's only a matter of time before they wake up to this the largest sovereign wealth fund in the world the Norwegian Fund which got all his money from oil and gas. They're really smart. They just announced they're going to divest one hundred percent for from oil and gas assets a so those who are taking the time to read the handwriting on the wall are coming to the conclusion that they need to get with this change and move onto into renewables and the sustainability revolution.

"This is from CBS news city killer asteroid just missed earth in scientists had no idea this is interesting this actually happened he came within forty five thousand miles now the earth is two hundred eighty thousand miles away so that's how close it was done the moon earth where on earth where on earth yeah okay let me re calibrate if we're on earth the moon is two hundred eighty thousand miles away so forty five thousand miles is pretty damn close and when it comes to things like this people should not be thinking oh forty five thousand miles it's really more about trajectory that forty five thousand miles is only like to stir a degree or two in the other direction and it smacks you and we didn't see it we've always known this if they're behind the sun you don't see them coming so if while while you're on that side of the sun is something shows up that's your regular in you know we don't know you know we know what we know the things that show up but there could be an asteroid out there the shows up every twenty seven thousand yeah I don't know I mean you just don't know and so this thing showed up we didn't see it coming it came with a forty five thousand miles of us big enough to wipe out the city now whether it would have gone in the middle of the ocean and done something we don't know but big enough to to wipe out a city and that's why I do I love the the men going to the moon I suppose putting somebody on Mars is worth it I don't believe we'll ever going to go any further than that because we can't figure out the whole cancer saying with the solar winds but we do have the technology for and what we should be working on is the thing that nope because you don't have it right in front of you we should be working on this what do we do if we have two weeks or one month or something along those lines when we spot something because the truth is we know how to deal with it and we don't have to blow it up with a nuclear weapon as a matter of fact that that would reign that would put a bunch of other things in orbit they could then come back to haunt us but all you have to do is you have to get there quick enough and you just have to gently sort of push it into just a couple miles away and that will change the trajectory and it will miss the earth we have what we need to do it but we don't have the will because nobody's ever been alive when it when one of these things hit another off to really really destroy a city although many have been have been killed in situations like this but usually they happen in bare areas were so this is really the one thing that we should be doing with our technology you tell your husband this you're at your asked my husband Travis yeah I'm to get working on the killer asteroid because if people may laugh at it now but when the time comes it was a you know what we got three weeks we did notice some was coming if NASA can go a thumbs up or on this we've been ready for this for years it's hard to you know for Americans we deal with stuff when it becomes an emergency right note the twenty two trillion dollars of debt that nobody's looking at we deal is still off what is right in our face and

Powell assails gold standard supported by Trump Fed nominee
"Problem with the gold standard for the left where the U._S. dollar would be anchored to a standard in gold is the left hates this idea joe and why because it takes away their ability. This is why they're freaking out of a trump's new pick on Judy Shelton she spoken positively about the gold standard to spend us into oblivion. The left loves the idea of of our money not being anchored to anything so the way of saying more primitive gold standard would work joe is we would only be able to create new money based on the availability of gold and the availability of that gold would be exchangeable when you can walk in with a dollar a U._S. dollar and say all right well. This isn't a more again primitive gold standard S- call it a hard gold standard joe would be able to walk into a bank and say I want to exchange my U._S.. Dollar redeemable in gold for I don't know whatever it may be a nail clipper worth their goal wouldn't even be worth that if you had a thousand dollars technically unikely you could walk into a bank or and get your money back in gold that would be a hard gold standard right. That's not really the way the gold standard would work in a modern economy but that simple analogy explains plains appoint that it would do what show it would constrain the government's ability or the Federal Reserve they you know it's not really a government entity kind of it is but the Federal Reserve could not create new money unless they found new goal which would limit their ability to print new dollars. Why do the Democrats hate this and why are they panicking about Judy Shelton and the media people because folks the Democrats want to monetize debt? They WANNA spend us into oblivion like they're doing now with their twenty. Two trillion dollars of accumulated government debt they want to spend us into the Phantom zone and the way they know they can never pay this off. We're not going to be able to pay off this debt so the Democrats and the Liberals Liberals want to be able to print money they call this modern monetary theory. I call it steaming piles of hot garbage. Just like the Flynn case right they want the Federal Reserve to be able to endlessly print new money not constrained by a gold standard to pay off all debt now. If you're listening in here on send you like Joe. What's the problem that sounds great so the government could spend money on social programs social security Medicare Medicaid chip food stamps endless government hermit pork projects and basically can print money? What's the problem Dan the Problem Ladies and gentlemen is endlessly print new money because you're not constrained by any kind of a gold standard and you're just do your measure of money keeps going all over the place right right yeah money buys?

Let's sad. There are too many details that still need to be hammered out. He says he doesn't think lawmakers will be including it in the state budget that's due on April. First President Trump has sent his twenty twenty spending plan to Capitol Hill at it includes new request for nearly nine billion dollars for his border wall. It seeks more money for defense small cutting non defense spending by five percent this year and two percent. In later years. Still the budget projects deficits for another fifteen years and the administration describes next year's budget budget as a return to fiscal sanity. Even though it has built in deficit of the twenty two trillion dollars House Democrats, call the plan dead on arrival. They say it would leave the country less safe and secure and has no chance of passage. Meantime, the Senate is expected to vote soon on legislation to block the president's emergency declaration for funding the border wall. The White House is clearly worried about this. And they're trying to contain the number of Republicans who deliver what will be over buke to the president in the Senate right now there are enough Republicans on board to terminate the president's national emergency. The question is how big is that margin. How many Republicans will stand up to the president? Now, President Trump has already said he's going to veto this, and there aren't enough critics here in congress to deliver the votes to overturn that veto so bottom line Republicans can embarrass the president on this issue. But they are not likely to be able to stop him on this one. That's correspondent Mary Bruce wins.

Trump demands more money to build border wall
"Six and over to Washington now with White House is holding a briefing on the president's budget, proposal and other issues and just moments ago. The acting head of OEM be votes spoke about the budget for fiscal twenty twenty and he was asked about the president's campaign promise. To eliminate the national debt, which sits at twenty two trillion dollars. But he blamed congress for that saying over the past two years, they've been ignoring the president's spending priorities. Mr. Trump's proposed border wall is a top priority for this new budget as we hear from CBS's. Steven Portnoy, the release of the president's twenty twenty budget. Request is the kickoff of a months long debate over wall construction, and broader government spending that could ultimately lead to another shutdown in the fall. Mr. Trump proposes more than eight billion dollars to fund the wall coupled with five percent cuts in domestic spending and an increase at the Pentagon, despite the rising deficits during this administration. Aides say if growth continues and this plan were fully implemented the budget could balance in fifteen years before this coming year the budget projecting a one point one trillion dollar
Congress Faces Fall Deadline to Address Debt Ceiling
"Region, a concern in congress the debt ceiling for the past year, the debt limit capping how much the US treasury can borrow has been suspended but that legislation expired last week. So the treasury is taking steps to clear space head of a likely fight in congress, the national debt topped twenty two trillion dollars for the first time ever last month in a letter to congressional leaders Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says he suspending sales of some security state and local governments use as a step to avoid a default of debt. Congress has routinely raised or suspended the debt limit. But legislation required is often.
Dancing On The Debt Ceiling
"The debt ceiling hasn't always existed. It wasn't always a thing for a very long time. In fact, for more than a century whenever the US treasury department needed money to pay the country's bills. It would go to congress and just ask for whatever amount it needed for whatever funding it needed. Susan arriving is a senior adviser at the government accountability office. She specializes in debt prior to World War. One literally treasury would come to the congress and saying I need to borrow money for X. I say, okay, you can borrow this. But that sort of overwhelming in something world, we're ones upon you. And the congress is Ratu spend its time focusing on the war. Oh, yeah. Sure. And you're in a lot of money. So the debt ceiling was awaited delegate the right to borrow two treasury. So that it would do it in the most professional way possible. So congress would set the budget, it would allot X amount to defense X amount to infrastructure, everything in the budget, and then treasury would come to congress and save. Okay. Taxes and other revenues will cover most of these bills, but not all of the bills. And so in order to pay for everything we want everything that congress has said it's going to spend money on we have to borrow some of the money and treasury with Ed need to get Congress's permission to do exactly that to borrow the money needed to pay for the rest of the bills the bills that are not covered by taxes. We borrow that money, but issuing treasury securities bills notes bonds if you buy your grandchild out of a savings bond. You've just went the federal government money last year the debt ceiling past twenty trillion dollars for the first time in history with a t that is just a lot of money. And the reason the US can keep taking on debt is because those treasury bonds have become such a hot product on the global market. They're considered super safe investments. Susan says everybody loves US bonds. We keep selling our debt to the world. And the world keeps buying those treasury. Securities are backed by the full, faith and credit of the United States. They are traditionally considered the safest security in the world. The quivalent of cash in terms of its ability to be used around the world that debt means that the United States can spend more money than it takes in and taxes. And sometimes it means that the US economy can grow faster than it. Otherwise would have. So like take this analogy, let's say that you want to buy a house, and you have a certain amount of cash, so you could buy say a small house, but you have a good job, you're reliable. So you could make mortgage payments reliably, no problems. So you take out debt, and that means you can now buy a nicer house than if you just bought that first house with cash, which brings us back to the debt ceiling so in order to fund all of the spending that congress just laid out in the budget. It just past the treasury will need congress to raise the debt ceiling to twenty two trillion dollars. And that is today's indicator twenty two trillion dollars now the US officially hits its debt limit tomorrow March. I don. Freak out treasury still has some cash on hand and can pay all of its bills through the summer at least still starting tomorrow. Congress really needs to raise the debt ceiling to twenty two trillion dollars. So everyone can breathe easy. And everyone knows that we're paying our bills and all that good stuff. And so the question is will congress in fact, do that will it raise the debt ceiling, and the reason that the Senator was asking fed chair Drome pal about the debt ceiling is that there could be a fight about it. Which is weird right because treasury is asking congress for the money to pay for the things. Congress just ordered on the budget. It just approved you think congress would just wave this through gratefully, but often that isn't the case raising the debt ceiling has become part of the sort of budget theater battle in recent years. And so now, there's this threat that the treasury will say, hey, guys, we need the debt ceiling to be raised to twenty two trillion dollars. So that we can borrow the money to pay for all the stuff that you yourself. Just order just bought and that congress it self because of. Internal political. Squabbles will say no that possibility keeps you up at night the debt. Limit is in after the fact measure after you've already had spent more than the revenues raise. Right. You've already like ordered all the drinks consumed all the drink now that you're looking at the bar tab. You've decided tough leans, right, which we can't do what would happen. Well, as Powell said, it's just inconceivable. So wait what happens if the US defaults or doesn't pay? I can't imagine. I mean, I really can't really, you know, I really like so bad like it is so bad. I
"twenty two trillion dollar" Discussed on KTOK
"And it also gives you access to all previous editions of the reports you can see not only where states rank in two thousand nineteen but all of the last eleven editions of the report Jonathan Williams who is co author of rich dates poor states. Also chief? Economist and vice president of the center for state fiscal reform at Alec Jonathan. Thank you for being with us, always great to be with you, my friend. And now we go to the offices of the club for growth where Scott Parkinson has been watching all the activity on Capitol Hill, and it has been a busy time. Scott good to have you here. Thanks for having me. Let's talk about something that happened over the last week or so and is going to become a major issue through the spring and into the summer, and this has to do with the size of the federal debt and the debt limit. What was the big milestone for the first time in US history? The national debt officially past twenty two trillion dollars, and that's historic because if you look back to when President Bush was leaving office the debt limit had barely past ten trillion. So since the beginning of the two thousand nine we've added twelve trillion dollars to the national debt, and we're right back in the middle of. Another trillion dollar deficit for this fiscal year as we head into March. And then later this summer explain for our listeners, Scott, why this whole debt limit issue is not only important, but we sort of are going to be at a critical juncture once again, are we not? Yeah. We are what happens in March is the debt limit suspension is officially expired, and we will see the US treasury department go through what is called extraordinary measures where they can sell off assets. And find ways to make sure that there's no default on the national debt the period of extraordinary measures can normally lasts several months. So we're expecting the debt. Limit fight to really become a big issue in June and July this summer what I think you'll see is the democrat house of representatives passed a budget resolution that will include a version of what's known as. Has to get rule and that allows the debt limit to be increased by the amount of the deficit that the budget provides for all that would be necessary after passage of the budget resolution would be for the Senate to take that up and tack it onto some hidden legislation, and what's known as a budget teamer and pass the debt limit that fashion. So what we're concerned about here is that there's really no focus on the spending here in Washington, we've been really irresponsible with the tax payers money, and we need to have a real serious discussion about what the future of our economy looks like if we keep stacking on trillions and trillions of dollars to the national debt. Speaking of tacking on those trillions and trillions of dollars. Scott this exponential increase in the federal debt, and the acceleration of it at what point do we simply run out of the ability to borrow money in those quantities. He's somewhere. There's got to be a finite number of dollars available. Certainly the credit agencies are paying attention to the amount of revenue that the treasury department. Annually collects we're at historic levels of revenue. So that's a good thing. If you're concerned about how much we're bringing in and the growth of the economy, but on the other side, we continue to spend way more than we actually have. So there needs to be fiscal restraint and a refocus on the spending side of the budget ledger. I think that we're nearing a point where the credit agencies could warn about another credit downgrade like we saw in two thousand eleven we had a triple a rating that had been downgraded for the first time in US history about eight years ago, and we're certainly back in a similar situation here where I think everybody should be concerned American radio journal is heard on public affairs minded radio stations all across the country, including our newest affiliate.

"At least one twenty twenty presidential hopeful is hitting the campaign trail this weekend. USA radio's Timberg has more democratic presidential hopeful in California. Senator Kamala Harris was holding a town hall in South Carolina when she was asked about the debt continuing to rise and Medicare for all. You said you support Medicare for all and the green new deal simultaneously? We have a twenty two trillion dollar national debt and at one point two trillion dollar deficit. How do you square that circle we have a tax Bill that got passed that gave a trillion dollars to the top one percent and the biggest corporations of America? And they need to give that money
"twenty two trillion dollar" Discussed on Talk 650 KSTE
"Thirty minutes, or so is Wayne Allyn root life, more Vegas, Nevada later on a steep form. Climate expert about what the green new deal will do to our economy, which is crashing. And I have great respect for what Trump is accomplished. It's incredible. The American economy's the end beginning entire world. It's unbelievable. And it doesn't mean it's going to continue. We have over twenty two trillion dollars national debt. And every year that goes by Trump promised to reduce the national debt and half. The time is first term was over. And I think he's going to be reelected. He's got six more years in office. But at some point we either have to massively cut government benefits or not do the other which is increased taxes. Did you know that the greatest income tax collections in American history or had last year? So the tax cuts resulted in more economic activity causing more dollars to be paid into the treasury. Unfortunately, the spending of the Republicans, and the Democrats continued unbridled this spending outpaced the ability of the government to collect taxes, we paid more in taxes last year dollar wise ever before in American history to be only surpassed by the taxes, we pay in fiscal twenty nineteen and ends September thirtieth. So in the fiscal September thirtieth September thirtieth twenty nineteen that ends in. What about eight months we're going to pay more taxes this year than the year before but spendings accelerating in a higher rate? Republicans want to spend money on the defense and the Democrats spend money on social welfare agencies and more thirty percent of every dollar Medicare recipients received. They paid in taxes. Seventy percent is paid for by somebody else. For those of us who pay our own medical insurance. Like, Danny Gleeson, my producer. Yes. What he's paying firm self for his wife is three kids. He's paying for the thirty five million people on Medicaid, don't pay nothing. He spanked for the twenty five million people on on illegal aliens or use the emergency rooms in our medical system. Plus he's paying for tens of millions of Americans pay little or nothing toward their own medical bills. They have no money their poor. And so we can't live in a country living on borrowed time. If you've listened to me for the past fifteen years, the issue not discuss by the mainstream media is the national debt. From seventeen eighty nine the first days of the Washington administration through the end of Bill Clinton. Thank God January twentieth. Two thousand and one which is what two hundred and twelve years, the total accumulated public debt in this country through feast and ward wars famine and depression, the total was four point five trillion dollars from seventeen eighty nine to two thousand and one four point five trillion during the eight years of George Bush, the four point five became ten trillion dollars, George Bush and the Democrats for those eight years doubled during the eight years that Obama was an office. He doubled. It the close to twenty trillion dollars. And now Trump is added about two trillion more so from seventeen eighty nine to two thousand and one four point five trillion and the last eighteen years, we've put on approximately eighteen trillion dollars national debt. How is that possible? How can we survive then we have an open southern border in which large numbers of illegal aliens from Central America flood in this country about sixty thousand a month. I that contribute. Nothing financially whatsoever. And can't contribute have no interest to assembly most, do not speak English all of them have profound medical difficulties some mental disorders, and we have no system to house faint take care of those people. We're not scaled to handle it. I see nothing but dark clouds on the horizon. One fifty percent of the congress refuses deal with this at all. Let's continue. Let's go to Joel in Virginia. Joel in Virginia. Welcome to the Bill Cunningham show. Go ahead. Get your chance I will reference to Mr. bar. Do you see him possibly as being sessions candle? We had a chance to take a look at the weather was just recently passed by the president on Breitbart. And that makes one Larry portion of it that I did note that there are certain communities. A wonder we Oakland valley up fifty mayors and the characters communities up out of any wall if any kind they can do so those areas up dominantly democrat, I'm just wondering hinder. Any stretcher steal a wall or anything else? Joel take a look at this alleged is going to build about eighty miles a wall. So they'll be ten miles of a wall. Then we come to the butterfly park. There's four parks mentioned in the Bill that says no wall will be built in the Texas butterfly park. So the wall ends for about three miles. Then you start up again with the wall that goes about eighteen miles. Then you come to a democratic mayor who name is Rodriguez who doesn't want the wall built, then there's no wall built for about six miles. Then the next eight miles has a wall built, can you? Explain to me, how that makes any sense to anybody with a brain that you can have a wall. It's not a wall at somebody walks to the end of the wall, and they walk into the country house that poss- how many girls are in brothels all over the midwest who were brought here, and that's the transit feed. They gotta pay thirty to forty percent of the girls and young women are raped on the journey that this is a magnet that is causing rape and murder and. Mayhem to individuals that don't fit into the twenty-first century America. At all. We have no need. We bring in legally one point eight million legal immigrants every year that are tested healthwise that have the education requirements, and we bring them in out of medically, but then we have chain migration. Then we have the leeza the visa lottery system, and then we have those walking across the border. Don't you see this sows the seeds of our destruction of a country? Unfortunately, the other problem we have is look at all these diseases coming across the border as well. We have researches subtypes in Turkey. And you happy searches of so many diseases that have not been seen in this country for seventy eighty maybe ninety years and now they're coming back. And that's fortunately, there are people that we never find this country. That are getting all these diseases people that are coming one. Let's say all I would say the predominant number of them have never even seen by a physician or receive any vaccines of any kind. And all of this stuff is just coming across the border for these diseases. How many Americans die from downtown? Joel take take a look at it. This way. One illegal immigrant comes here. One point eight million come came last year the highest number ever under Trump. They were tested for tuberculosis malaria. Hepatitis polio. Measles, mumps HIV to Burke, yellow Laos's, influenza, hepatitis say, rubella, Rambis and all these other things. So in order to come into the country within sixty days of your arrival. You need a medical certificate. You've been tested to make sure you don't have these diseases. We have twenty five million illegal aliens here. How many have been tested for all these diseases. Do you think? Zero very very few zero. How's that possible? The news media doesn't do a series of reports for CNN ever do a series of reports of the number of diseases brought over the southern border by residents of central and South America that have no inoculations. Have you seen one story on that? None whatsoever. My question is what would happen if relatives of some of these democratic politicians for down the state level or federal level became infected themselves did indeed change him in any way. Or they continued to be the same way they are now. Well, the media does not care about those murdered raped injured and made sick by an open border. They don't care about the heroine epidemic. We've eighty thousand Americans killed or die every year with a heroin addiction comes ninety percent of a comes from the southern border. We don't have too many a poppy fields in America. It's all the southern border. Or stuff and why why do stories on that? How about doing stories on the twenty five percent of illegal aliens are in the federal penitentiary system how much money does that cost us every year every see CNN story on that? Never. And then you have the other problem of sentinel festival's coming in and people were going all over the place incentives alone along with the heroin. Well, the public health issue is Nord by the mainstream media that is champing sanctuary cities. The public health issue is completely ignored by the clambering Democrats who want open borders, and it's completely taken of how many Americans will be injured killed in. Diseased over the for the rest of this year, the number is probably in the hundreds of thousands. But the media doesn't cover it therefore doesn't exist. Joel. We gotta go. Thanks for your call. Let's go to Jerry and Missouri. Jerry, missouri. Welcome to the Bill Cunningham show, Jerry go ahead. Thank you mail. My main thing is seventy two percent of us red white and blue American citizens out here that believe in this country. It's about time. We got a hold of our congressmen state and federal and told them enough now Dr. Of these people are from all welfare programs that are not citizens of United States. If they don't like it go on the bus. We've got a one way border down south. Out a way out. What is your what is your sense of Missouri in the next election and next year? Do you think Trump is going to win? If Trump does a one Mazurie he cannot win the presidency. He must win Texas, Florida and Ohio. Do you see you send the those who live in the show me state understand that what's at stake next November is survive ability of this country. Thanks. Going to stand up and fight for this country. Because that's what we need is a fight for this country. I was kind of off from welfare. The media to be independent and objective and criticized Trump when he's wrong and complemented when he's right. We only get one side of the equation whenever get the other, Jerry. We gotta go. Thanks for your call is continue with more. If line becomes available.

"twenty two trillion dollar" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Tenuous moments. We understand what the prison United States when he looked at the bills started reading the eleven hundred pages and was outrage wasn't gonna sign it. Mitch McConnell convinced him to calm down and take another look at it. In simultaneously, the president decided and Mitch McConnell will back eight signing a declaration of national emergency, the Democrats apoplectic, even some Republicans, and we'll cover the national signing just the signing up both the Bill and the urgency action in just a moment. First off is an emergency at the border. I've say, yes, I've talked to more experts on and off camera did that special in San Antonio, Texas. And I know the numbers of people that are coming through. So let alone the track the drugs that are are are streaming through let alone the fact that we don't even know who we don't get they say about two hundred thousand we have no idea they're even coming in. But they come into our country. We're a country that has twenty two trillion dollars twenty two billion dollars. No way. Two trillion dollars. In overall debt, we cannot afford to actually sustain all of El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala. It doesn't work for us. There's a system for that, Tom home and sees how little we're getting with this new plan and the restrictions for example. Yeah, you get one point four billion dollars to build a barrier. Roma Texas not in Rio Grande city, not Nicobar. Not look griller. Oh, yeah. There are some more prohibited. How about this the Santa while refuge? Can't put a put a Bollard fence there. The bench scenario within Benson of the Rio Grande valley state park. Can't do that. Oh and the national butterfly center. They also don't want any barrier when the president's reading this you knew how mad getting and they're saying on the left of the president's making it up. Tom Holman ran ice ran border patrol cut eighteen Democrats are twist in the story what the fact is more drugs or she's at the port of entry because every car is stopped every person has talked to show, of course, revolt. Find more drugs could have got better security that doesn't mean drugs are come across retreat, a porcupine tree could place where cars you drive through to Bob where fencing they're going to be smuggling backpack show. Of course, more drugs arrested reporter victory. There's why we need security between the ports of entry. Should we arrest? More. That just turn their story. Rodney American people that false narrative they signed that drugs come across that border. You gotta sitting there with you. When I was board collision. Well, I two hundred twenty one kilos in a truck to come across a Bob more effect. And by the way, these are real life examples, can you please take it up with the experts when you have a problem and understand this shouldn't be politics national emergencies in the past. Well, this was passed in one thousand nine hundred seventy six giving the president power to do this fifty eight times it's been used thirty one of those national emergency orders are still on the books, which means a sustained and they're needed. How many each president Jimmy Carter used it twice? Ronald Reagan used six times Bush, forty one five Bill Clinton seven teen times, George W Bush thirteen times this president named Barack Obama twelve times Donald Trump two times. Where does he get the money? Well, six hundred million for the treasury department forfeiture fund mean we picked him up. We can use it to point. Five billion from the defense department drug interdiction program three point five billion from the defense department on the military construction budget that gets us to about eight billion if you factor in what we just got a Bill. The Senate says on that Bill I think gives a president not as much as he thought Eighty-three senators liked it three hundred house members liked it therefore it passes. And then when the president made it clear, incomes emergency action. The response was we're going to try to stop it with the resolution of condemnation for lack of a better term. But Mitch McConnell knew that he had no choice. He could lose the president again. And then the government shuts down again. Nancy Pelosi at which he plans on doing cut for that the president can declare an emergency on something that he is created as an emergency and Lucien that he wants to convey just think of what a president. It's different values can present to the American people. You wanna talk about national emergency. But talk about today the one year anniversary of another manifestation at the epidemic of gun violence in America. That's a national emergency. Why don't you declare that emergency? Mr president. I wish you would democratic president can do that president can declare emergencies as well. I talked to a lawyer now. So I talked to chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney last night. That's not the case. It doesn't apply guns. The second amendment gives us the right to bear arms. It also gives it there's no amendment that says you have the right to let everybody in your in your country Hector Garza, he is a border patrol agent at the border. Last night on a lure show cuddle eleven about whether this is an emergency or not thirty two humanitarian crisis is an emergency. What we see right now is between ports of entry. We see a lot of dangerous drugs, and we have to consider that between ports of entry that those are considered on security location. Unlike Portugal, entry, Portugal, secured locations with technology and manpower between ports. Eventually, we don't have that technology. We don't have that manpower. And yes, it is a crisis and President Trump should declared emergency, and he's going to do it and the president's back where it belongs. And that is fight it out the problem with the present as opposed to a candidate his there needs to be a lot more cooperation and people not only did people. Maybe just honestly just disagree with him. But others just don't want to move. They certainly don't want to give the president of victory. And some Republicans aren't all in think though, though, I think they never Trump movement is dying. Tom Bevan says I recognize this guy cut twelve this is a risky move on Trump's park in the sense that it does certainly shore up his base. And it keeps the issue. Top of mind. And I think the contrast that Trump likes is the idea that he it's a matter of opinion, he says this is national emergency. And Democrats are rushing to the barricades to say, this is an this is a complete fiction. It's an invention. That's a contrast that he wants the downside is it does. It puts the focus back on a split in the Republican caucus in media will certainly cover all the Republicans that are going to come out and say, this isn't the proper way to go. So, you know, after Trump got a pretty significant bump after in his job approval rating after the state of the union speech in part because of the bipartisan message, I think he's back to brawling. And so we'll see how this works out for him. But it's definitely a risky move on. And he likes doing it. He likes going for it. And the other thing is if something happens in the courts that he doesn't like it's their problem. I did everything I could. And then I did a little bit more. Meanwhile, how Republicans dealing with the state of emergency declaration, which will be official sometime within this hour. Marco Rubio came out against it. Here's some other Republicans Mike rounds and Senator Susan Collins. I continue to believe that. This is not what the national emergency sacked was intended to be used for was contemplated as a means for responding to a catastrophic event, like an attack on her country or a major natural disaster. What about if somebody else thinks that climate change is the national emergency? And then what will they do? And how far will they go? That's a that's a thought good luck making that case because it's so nebulous, and you don't even know I'm gonna snap out on carbon. I'm gonna make everyone get out of the car. This is what about the the the president United States? This guy named proc Obama decided that the DACA do the dreamers. That's a state of emergency. Now, I know Republicans were upset by that. Absolutely. But that's so far has been held in court. And the president hasn't been present. President Obama hasn't been present for two years. So this gives them a lot more latitude Jonathan Turley was on with this earlier. He believes that he represented he represented the. The the challenge to ObamaCare when they were going to repurpose money to give to private insurance companies. He actually fought against that and one but said here the president's in a pretty strong legal position. You know, doesn't have a problem. Standing up to it. So we'll talk about that. And Mike Rogers second. We'll see about him. One eight six six four zero eight seven six six nine. Let me take a quick call before we take a break. Jerry Lewis said okay and Jacksonville. Hey, jerry. Love your show, man. But I'm honest with you cannot be on Trump's side with this declaration. It's going to open up a Pandora's box. You know it. I know it and what they're gonna do not only they're gonna go after climate change. And they have the science to back it up and to fight it also gonna go after gun humidity kids are diamond school the national emergency. And another thing all three of our top advisors. It's more our national security win in front of congress not too long ago and not one time was the border mentioned at a national emergency Orna -mergency for that for that point a couple of things. I mean, they're focused on external threats now there is no external threat, but they do not want to talk about Terrano border, and they're not. But when you talk about humanitarian crisis that's not really with the military focuses on the national threat. So I don't really have a problem with the fact that he didn't bring that up. But there's nobody who goes down to the border and think things are going. Well, they are over taxed they are overworked. They're understaffed the been overrun illegals that are here who come here legally, turn is twenty million people. This estimate twenty million people hundreds of streaming across each day want to get caught because they're put in detention centers, and they got to be released within twenty days. It's assist in this creating a national emergency. And I believe it's there now, and I just say anyone who doesn't think so put away the red the red code or the blue coat and just go down as an American and talk to these men and women, and there's no way offense would benefit. Thanks so much for the call Jerry keep in mind, I'm the guy that said a month ago forty days ago, I don't think the president should declare state of emergency born I saw the lockout and then refused to negotiate for thirty four days. When I see the deal that they came back after seventeen days, and I see how little money in a restricted is coming back. I say president if you're for real and this cause is legit. Then do it any is when we come back. We'll take some more of your calls at the bottom of the hour. I'm gonna welcome in Shannon bream. Also, this kind of exciting time FOX nation is out there.

"The world of the economy is going to be very very fun. So let's see what else is in the news this morning. First of all we have. Fed's collecting a record collection feds collecting a record amount of individual taxes. So government coffers are filled. Twenty two billion dollar deficit. I wish these Nancy Pelosi was bragging about well. We have the power of the purse, we have the power the person the congress. Well, which you people please do something about this twenty two trillion dollar deficit. This is frightening. And the feds are collecting record individual taxes. And yet we have a situation in New York state where they don't understand people are leaving their state because of taxes Steve Morris got this incredible article effect. Let me see where is the swing put this up on the blog. Absolutely. This was originally published in the New York Post, but I'm reading it over freedom works. It's Stephen Moore. And art Laffer his buddy. And I don't know what the oh. High taxes the golden geese high taxes are driving away tristate golden get that one up for for our. So he makes the point. I mean, what's happening in the state, and you know, how you can do this. You just go to some of these major moving companies and just see okay where where's everybody going from and to and people are leaving their fleeing Connecticut, New Jersey and New York because the taxes are so high. Especially upper wagers to say. All right. That's it. We're done. We're leaving. This is too much. So New York needed this deal with Amazon because they're losing so many people these were high wage jobs. It's a New York state police were the unspoken deal here is, hey, hey, Alexandria, case your Cortez. We're losing people because of our taxes, we need more taxpayers would not understand this. No, teachers, you're all for those union guys will guess what without tax revenue, we're not gonna have the teachers. Man. She is she's so in over her head. She has no idea what she's doing. And what's scary? Is there just a lot of a lot of people who listen to what she says to them. Somehow, it all makes sense. It must be there. They're just doing super doses of marijuana. Sherry did yesterday. Did you? I sent you that contact information for that author who has a book about dope. Yes. This is incredible. Basically, I listen, I understand it's twenty one thousand nine and I understand even in this audience. There are a lot of bloody people who smoke marijuana. But everything we've been told in recent years about marijuana is absolutely false, everything you've been told about us medicinal purposes. Etc. And why are all these states now legalizing marijuana because it's a tremendous revenue stream. It's a great tax stream for them. That's why they're doing it. And it's the savage has been talking about this forever. And if there's ever a guy that has the qualifications to talk about it with this degree in botany. And I believe he has a degree in pharmacology. He understands. They've been studying the effects of marijuana the brain for one hundred fifty years, and what this does to so many is so dangerous. But I'm gonna bring we're going to have this author on what will boil it down into a nutshell. And it's it's fascinating. Also, speaking of we'll have him on the air for for a quickie on K as if. Oh, and then I'll probably expand it with a personal podcast, speak your personal podcast. I just didn't think this was good morning radio, quite frankly. But it's it's very inspirational nonetheless. In light of all the talk about infanticide in this kind of stuff, which is not pleasant. But we're we're talking about it now. Right. I mean, we're we're talking about it because that crazy governor from Virginia. I mean now, it's a topic for discussion. But it's not a pleasant topic for discussion. I don't think it's good for the morning. You guys you try, you know, you're eating breakfast and trying to get to work. But I did a fascinating interview where they survivor of abortion. And this is it my jaw was on the floor. And she's just a wonderful charming beautiful woman as she's put together this network of people just like her, but the interview Katie it's up on my blog, Brian Sussman dot com. Could you just get it on the case where morning show blog the interview with her? It's for my hidden headlines podcast interview. Oh, yes. There we go. I see it up right now. Yeah. And it's just take a listen to that from the case dot com website. It's it's really revealing just kind of shows you with the occasional Cortez's of this world. And all these other crazy people. I mean, the left's got mad. So it kind of makes you wonder have they gone so far to the left now that there just aren't enough people like them in their base. There aren't enough people. Maybe maybe they're basis like this. But there aren't enough other people that are going to vote them into higher office like the presidency. That's why I think Trump's get slam dunk. He'll he'll do another four years. That's my personal. You can get that podcast now at our blog dot com. We have it up. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect perfect. When we come back. Let's let's talk. This is another guy that we love to have on the program. Kevin Leman, and he's the birth order guy. So I've got a question for you. Based on an article recently wrote firstborn only child middle child. Which one are you? I've got a quiz for you. And it this quiz is going to reveal that your birth.

"Bill O'Reilly is with us. His latest book is killing the SS. I read some of this as a part of me that just wants to laugh at it because we're going to eliminate air travel. We're going to eliminate fossil fuels that means the combustion engine is is in the scrap heap of history, if they have their way, but in ten years, they plan to have high speed trains, built everywhere. How are they going to build that train to New Zealand and Australia or Europe? I'm I'm fascinated at how that's going to happen. Oh, Cossio Cortez is the media, darling. And I I actually think she's very good for America. Because he spotlights all the things that are really hidden from a lot of us that real powerful people like George Soros with billions of dollars to give away. What she makes people pay attention to this insanity. You know, if you do a survey in a mall, and you say, do you wanna ban? Hotdogs hamburgers airplanes. One hundred percent of the people are gonna laugh at you and say, no, what are you an idiot. But the real underneath is government control government control. They don't have any solutions. I mean just this week. We hit a twenty two trillion dollar debt, which is going to hurt everybody in this country. It's just a matter of win. Not if just this week, we hit it have you put the socialists in charge. You're going to have an eighty trillion dollar debt. You're going to have the inflation like they have in Venezuela. And you know, what you're going to have. And I hate to say it, but you're gonna have violence. Why do you? What? Because when the government starts to confiscate income as the socialist want seventy percent income tax death tax. They come in and take everything you're gonna and then people start losing their jobs as a transition is made into the electric car industry or whatever else they're going to mandate and people don't have a lot of money. And then somebody breaks their hip and has to wait six months to get an operation like you do in Canada, you know, violence. You know, what's really people are Americans are not going to are not gonna sit for it that the problem is is look at what's happening in states, like New York, New jersey, Illinois, California, mass exit it so Cuomo goes to chump and goes, hey, yeah. You pass a law that doesn't allow us to deduct state and local taxes anymore. Can you do something about it? And if I were Trump, I look at them and go, well, why do you why your taxes so high exactly that's the answer? But it would happen. Don't you think that your own people? And then you're coming to me for a handout though, you think though that many here I've got to run a military. I've gotta run a security apparatus, and you can't even build roads in New York. Let me ask you this though, don't you think what's happening in these high tax states highly regulated states and the mass exodus is only a preview of coming attractions. If the extreme radical Socialist Democratic Party, get some power and tries to implement this. I think people then they they're gonna take their money, and they're gonna look for a safe haven. Like when it happened in France, all the wealthy people started moving to Belgium like the next day. Great britain. I mean, even the Beatles moved out. Right. Why are you still in New York and run into what point five billion dollar tax shortfall because so many wealthy people moved out of here. Why the hell we're going to be the last ones here. They're going to take everything I've got to go. But you raise a lot of great points. Bill O'Reilly is latest book bestseller is number one on the New York Times list.

"But. I to your phone calls here is at hey. Ed. Thanks for your patience. Welcome to the Mike Gallagher show. How are you, sir? Pretty good. Good. Listen. I I agree with Anne Coulter our countries twenty two trillion dollars in debt, the portal, pay taxes and the rich to make so much. It doesn't really matter. We gotta get this get eliminated before we can help anybody. That's a good argument. I mean, there's no question that one of the one of the pitfalls of government in two thousand nineteen is the spending and the president. You know, unfortunately, there hasn't been anybody in the last thirty years that I've seen try to reverse the trend of the big printing press that we call the United States. So I mean, it's a great great point a lot of things. I don't like about the way we do things in the country. There's there's the real world and the pragmatism of what we're up against. And then there's wishful thinking I wish I wish we didn't spend the way we spent now the president is doing his best to try to reverse that trend. That's a tough battleship to turn around. That's a very tough battleship to turn around. Larry, you're next. Hey, larry. How are you, sir? Thank you. Good question. Maybe you can answer to what you think of it. National emergency get that started. The government up for only one hundred twenty days in the region hundred and twenty within that hundred and twenty eight democrat who's a judge to go against it shows today on one hundred twenty days, you know, he's gonna open up until he gets everything. But give them somebody. Does it? He's he's never ever ever ever gonna do that. Trust me. He's not going to shut the government. He's not going to open the government and shut it down again that would be an unmitigated disaster. I get your point it isn't going to happen. So again, I want to deal with some realities today, there's not gonna be a three week oak reopening. He's not going to open it up for three weeks only to find out. They're not going to budge. So he's going to close it down. Again, not going to happen. What he needs to do is declare national emergency.

"Delaware Senator Chris coons addict. And then Mike Pompeo all talking about this. We've talked about one aspect of this couple of times, and I've gotten a fair bit of pushback from individuals working for the government who have been furloughed, admittedly. They're in a bit of a tough spot in that sooner or later, they will have to make a decision as to whether they hang in and are able to simply recoup the money that they were not paid during this period. Once they go back to work. Or if they decide. No, it's really, I guess I just as soon go work for somebody else. The level of sympathy. There's some polling that Donald this over the course of the weekend the level of sympathy from those in private industry for those federal employees is very shallow. There is not a whole lot of sympathy. There is not a whole lot of. Oh my God. Welcome to to help you guys. This is you know, Crimea river kind of time for an awful lot of people in private industry. There are some states that have a lot of federal workers, Maryland, certainly is one of them the most the most by the way is California Virginia DC, and then Maryland is similar to the mix. The plight for the federal worker right now. Is to play on the emotions of the private sector listener or viewer. And there's not a whole lot of sympathy. Private sector worker knows all too. Well, interesting piece from sheriff, David Clarke, private sector worker knows all too well about losing their job or being laid off to companies going out of business or moving operations overseas. Or when the economy slows down their relief. Who in the government sector gave a damn about the private sector worker at their times of adversity where where's the cheerleading media on President Obama's failed economic policies led to rising unemployment claims record food stamp applications and home foreclosures dude way, slumping private sector economy. How many federal employees lost their jobs or laid off during the recession of two thousand seven. None. None. The private sector worker consummately is in a more uncertain world. Then does the federal worker profits a little business taxes determine their continued employment? You raise taxes? Shrink prophets. Companies will not be able to hire as many individuals, or they'll have to lay off some of those who are actually already on the payroll, federal employees are immune from this their immune from layoffs their immune from job losses. Private sector workers rarely get days. Get paid back for days not worked or if the company poses a lockout paid for them. Federal employees and congress the house has passed this as opposed to the Senate it'll pass to. There continue to get pay raises and benefits packages, including their pensions, even any slow growth economy. And were they twenty two trillion dollars, national debt and rising budget deficits. There are no private industry then operates like this. You can't go year in year out in private industry. Simply racking up more and more and more debt. You go bankrupt. You go bust. Now, we are on the way there as a country. But so far that has had no impact whatsoever on the federal workers. So these federal workers, and my feeling is if you're working you should be paid. If you're not working if you're one of the non essential employees. Sounded like hard guy. But no, you shouldn't see one red cent of the taxpayers money. You have innocence and extended vacation perhaps go down to Puerto Rico where a lot of democratic legislators are right now enjoying these sun, the sand and the local ladies in bikinis. He's a great picture of New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez down there talking of some gallon of bikini. I'm sure they're very concerned about you federal workers by the while they're down there in Puerto Rico, enjoying the sun the sand and the lady in bikini. Probably that's probably what Menendez was talking to her about probably started the conversation. Excuse me, miss you in the yellow bikini. I was just wondering are you a federal worker. Aren't you aren't well? Let me tell you about the plight of the federal workers. Do you have a minute to listen to me? Yes. Miss when I why I'm here. I'm I'm only thinking about the displaced federal workers. And it's it's it's agonizing because I look at you. I think you're the picture of health. You have this very great physical conditioning. Obviously, you look wonderful in that bikini. But I wonder how many furloughed federal workers have the opportunity to go to their health club. And look as good as you look. Now, you have to have sympathy for these people. I'm sure that's what Menendez conversation was all about that. If we actually could find that woman in the bikini that I'm sure she'd she'd assert that she say, yeah, we simply talked a fiscal policy and the efficacy of a border. A border barrier of some sort. I think that's all they would have been talking about. Sure. Because there's no way any democrat would actually leave the forty eight states. The contiguous forty eight not Alaska and go to someplace by the way. There there with hundreds of lobbyists, and I'm sure again, all they're talking about down. There is is gosh. What can we do to help those displaced federal workers? What what can we do to convince people that we really care about border security, for example, they can point out that there are no walls around Puerto Rico? And you see they don't have an immigration problem. It's an island. I'm sure that that's all the conversations are. Time magazine has the story. They say. The mindset of one federal worker who put it this way right now, it feels like an indentured servitude. We just want the shutdown to end for employees as me paid retroactively ever some provisions be put in place where federal employees will not have to work without a paycheck. When asked what he's been doing even passing his time during the furlough doing puzzles and volunteering. He said the third week marks the first time he's felt a real fear over his future. Here that for those in the private sector. This is the first time that guy has ever felt fear over his future. Well, welcome to the world of the private worker, pal. Welcome to the world. And also makes me wonder what he thinks indentured. Servitude truly exactly what does that mean? Now, the GOP senators passed a Bill saying the furloughed federal workers will be paid for time. Not worked. The same employees who do not and will not vote for them in future elections. The GOP says all right, we'll sign our death warrant here. All you federal workers. And you're not gonna vote for us. We know you're not gonna vote for us. You know, if if the Republicans get fifteen percent of the federal worker, I mean beyond the military fifteen percent of the federal workers. It'll be good election cycle forum. But the GOP Senate says here, let's pass a Bill. So even if they're not working, they get paid. There over two million federal employees. We've gone from seeing the federal government as a provider of necessary services. And beginning FDR now, it's an employment agency. If you don't produce prophets. Doesn't matter. You're the federal government. If you grossly inefficient doesn't matter. They can't go buy services from an alternate government. You know, it's a monopoly business. They have a lock on it. Want to get federal funds? You can't say, well, I'll either go to the federal government or I'll go to the alternate government because equally they could choose. No, there's only one choice. So taxpayers get to fork over more and more of their hard earned money to support their great pay benefits and pensions and keeping the world of the federal worker constant. And again, please. If you or your spouse's, working member, the border patrol, co-starred, etc. We paid me. They should be paid. But for all of those federal workers who are doing crossword puzzles or the occasional volunteering. I'm sorry. People in the private sector have gone through this over and over and over again and the idea of a private employer saying, well, I realize that. You were laid off from your job three weeks ago. We want to bring you back and during those three weeks. Oh, what the heck be anyway. It doesn't happen in real life. It doesn't. And there you have it the president weighed in on by the way. He was on with judge Janine Pierrot on Saturday. You said if you could declare a national emergency to get the federal money for a border, he could, but he really wants congress to actually do their job. They should act responsibly. We're talking about the border, and and I have to say a lot of the people that aren't getting their checks. I letting us know we don't care you've got to solve the crisis at the border humanitarian crisis and its national security. It's very important. It isn't four one zero WCBS six eighty is our telephone number. Those are my opening observations for this hour. Glad to hear your responses. You know year after year folks, say they want to shape up and slim down now if you can relate and losing weight is your goal to you.
