"Nothing like any phone company in the sector right up into the moment that he merged his company with sprint where he'd also held numerous senior roles pocketed one hundred and thirty seven million dollars in bonuses and walked away. Corporate person hood is obviously a sham and his descent and citizens united supreme court justice. Stevens wrote that corporations have no claim to free. Speech rights because quote corporations have no consciences no beliefs. No feelings no thoughts and no desires. Companies may project a set of corporate values but these values are a marketing strategy. Not a set of deeply held convictions. That's especially evident mergers when companies that have styled themselves as bitter rivals are able to consolidate into a single company like disney fox whose brand identities were at significant odds from one another from their standing rivalry. You'd think that they were montagues and capulets. But if that's so then that means that. Robert murdoch and bob eiger were romeo and juliet. Star crossed lovers whose desire for one another was so deep and sincere that they brought peace between warring great houses. Or you know maybe it was all bullshit. Maybe large companies all have the same ideology profit. Maybe the distinctions between their characters as meaningful as the flavors of the different marshmallows. In a box of lucky charms. Maybe the reason john lazar worked at eighteen sprint before going to t mobile is that they are interchangeable monopolies whose top ranks all came up together know each other take vacations together and are godparents to one another's children. Maybe they aren't really rivals. Maybe monopolists have class. Sollidarity is what i'm saying. If we can't count on big companies to turn on one another will need popular support to advance the cause of trust. Busting to get that popular support to proceed. Stepwise scoring small wins that we can build and build upon. It will not surprise you to learn that. I think we should start with. Tech tack is in very bad odor right now. Few voters first priority is doing something about tech but likewise few voters trust or like the tech industry. There's already antitrust action pending against several major tech companies and multiple. Us states at the federal level and abroad tech was the first new industry to grow up without meaningful antitrust enforcement. The apple two plus hit the market the same year that reagan hit the campaign trail and there are people alive today. Who watched the industry go from this vibrant dynamic fast moving thing to an ossified and chummy boys club. Run by a half dozen. Ceos who fit around a single boardroom table at the top of trump tower in twenty seventeen. But it's not just the fact that tech is in trust busters crosshairs that makes it the ideal first step and a path to total antitrust victory. The most important thing about tech from a competition perspective is the underlying technical nature of networked computers. For while it's true that every industry took the same path to monopolization runaway mergers followed by anticompetitive conduct industries all have different paths out of monopoly because each industries. Technical characteristic provides us with a different set of handles that we can yank on to change their course. Think of this as antitrust answer to anna karenina. All happy families are alike. Each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. Here's the amazing thing that makes tack.

"In one app this'll is kprc 9 50 proud home of Houston Cougar football. Freed about it later. How about we talk about it now? Jimmy Barrett Show continues on KPRC 9 51 Man. They've been smoking in the house and in the Senate, the state Senate. They have been working their butts off. Late nights. Getting a lot of love in legislation through last one today is the Constitutional Carrie Bill, which passed 18 to 13 20 US state Senator Paul Bettencourt. I'm hearing those senator that The bill had a few additions and subtractions along the way before passing, and there's gonna have to be a reconciliation process with the house. Are there any areas about the bill that went through the Senate that concern you? No, Jimmy because we've got a bill that is supported by the Sheriff's Association and also the enemy, congratulated the Senate for passing constitutional. Kerry. So if you get one enforcement and then a day on the bill, I like that, I think is pretty much the right touch. Okay, So you expect to go through the reconciliation reconciliation process. All right, then. We know the governor's already said he'll sign it right. Yeah. Good question. And Jenny's friend of the items that had to be changed where you know the best, you know, kind of flipped out of the house. Yeah, And it's not like you can defend attacks vacated or drunken Kerry in H Town. You just can't do that. Okay? And we also put a pretty good amendment out there. That helps with law enforcement that, like, Look, if you're convicted, I mean, I'm talking about convicted of a terrorist threat. You've got a conviction. Well, I'm staring at that point of time. We really don't want you carrying, okay. But outside of that, you know, the amendments went on. You know, all the Republicans supported him. Uh and I'm very happy with the outcome. I know. Lieutenant Governor Bad for gives us well. All right. That's good to hear. Let's talk about what else has been going on in the in the state here and in the state Senate. We found out just a few days ago, Senator Bettencourt That lo and behold, by getting our state economy opened. We actually have a bit of a surplus several billion dollars worth right now. Uh, it's so shocking. Yeah. You know, if you get these leftist progressives out of the way, you can open up the economy and all of a sudden everybody is making money and cheese are paying more taxes. Wow. You know, like American capitalism, At least who knew? Hey, By the way, you're You're one of the biggest proponents. I know about property tax relief. So is there any chance Any of this multi billion dollars in surplus is going to go back to property taxpayers. Absolutely, Jimmy, look as values cut up. You know about 2.5% on the school side of total revenue, the tax rates are going to plan it. And so we're gonna have lots attacks Race coming, Dad. What people should do is protest their value because tax rates will be coming down as well. So they get back to the Apple and Jimmy We had another break. Big bill. We finally basically stop leaning. It'll die ago from lockdown. Lena's It's Senate Bill 16 16. Got at this. We're gonna buy person vote, and it basically says you can't use the pandemic as an excuse to have executive orders that basically, um you know, over track the state And you can't do criminal penalties, period ever. Okay? You know, for things like math violations. You remember the federal girl Jimmy were there for that? Finally, Judge, he'll dago tried to get the village police to shut him down. Try to get even AdGonzalez, the sheriff, the new ice director, He wouldn't do it. So basically, we stripped all that out of her on Senate Bill 16 16 and that and that popped out of there with two Democrat senators in the Valley, joining the all the Republicans because in the Valley gets their crazy and emergency orders, you couldn't ride bicycles. You had to wear masks. But when you when you were in the car by yourself, just crazy Stop on, So we're coming back. He's emergency orders because May lock down land right now, with still type people to go home, not go to school and release happy and a from the jail. Well, that's the least of the things she would do right now. You no doubt heard. You know what she in Sylvester Turner basically have severed the relationship where the Greater Houston partnership because the business people that belong to it It is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical group. But they are. They're punishing that group for not taking a stand and what they call so called voter suppression. So we've got we've got the mayor and we've got the Harris County manager trying to punish your company for not taking a stand on the political issue. Jamie, Let's break some news on attack Radio in Houston right now. Identify her last week on this very subject. And I found out that in my senatorial district, which is Senate seven, which is average for the state. Now it's no longer a big conservative district pretty close to average. You'll be happy to know that Have Andy 7% of people all the murders. I want that to happen on Lee about 6 to 9% of the voters equipment nation should be telling people what the day voter integrity bills. And I patched that into the Chronicle yesterday and did a tweet on it. It seems bent court. You can see it. They refused to plan it. So I'm gonna email seven heavens, 1000 emails, Everybody a county. So they know that the apocalypse doesn't support the leftist progressives and their media organs like the Houston Chronicle, they don't support corporations and businesses. I want what to do with border integrity bills. And that's a payment. You know what? What? We'll pass it along on Ktrh tomorrow morning as well will replace some of this with our morning show ground. Well, because, Jimmy, it's really important. I mean, we're basically and sometimes of this, Sterkel, you know, not just progressive for Masters political theater attack where shall die ago and and Turner. They want to do anything with the partnership because of hunger ships trying to stay out of it. Well, that business shouldn't be in it like a goddamn it. Had a fight at the county judge, and he refused to go the partnership because they wouldn't content condemn my property tax relief bill what she the public land and property tax relief. So that the times when the partnership is on the right side where it's hard enough to dock with the citizens. United Supreme Court decision was terrible. You know, preparations on people and we don't want him in politics and Jenna. You could see it a change that in court and be emailing it. People do not believe what the media's telling him. I don't know. By the way they know they can't believe Jim crowd lives. Apply the voters. There's like a SP seven. That's going to be debated. Uh, which means sex in the house and five o'clock today. And they don't believe that's true because they know this is just about your trumped up racial attacks. And if you're gonna talk about Jim Crow, let's talk about Democrats from the 19 twenties and fifties, staring back edges from the graves because I remember Republicans that then You know you're restoring my faith this afternoon, Senator Benton, Coordinating And And the good people of Texas. You know, because you wonder, you know, we're all busy living our lives, right? We're all trying to make a living. We're trying to put our kids through school. We're trying to pay. The bills were trying to have a couple of hours of peace. When we get home from work during the day, and and and you think, Well, maybe people just Aren't paying attention. Maybe maybe the art riled up yet. Maybe they don't really know what's going on. But it sounds to me like they know what's going on. They're starting to fight back. Dad, I tell you, Jimmy does homework Stop, I think is if you look at it and LA back, they pass an abortion ban in the city. The city of Boston has left this regressive as they are. They overturned the mayor's camping ordinance. You know they were conservatives elected all over the state school board. I think what's happening is the Brighton disaster on the board on this world movement is finally I am working in the sleeping What I call majority. Okay, because people have just had enough and and I was great. I was happy to see that poll result because I mean, that's just in and out of the park. They know the media is lying to him about these voter integrity bills, and that's great because that means they see friend while this left us progressive propaganda that's feeling out of every you know. National media outlets coast to coast You mentioned you mentioned the conservatives being elected to school boards and the reason behind that has a lot to do with the 16 19 project and Chris critical race theory, Which is why there's a bill. I know that Steve Toth had a bill in the house that would outlaw the teaching of those things. Is there a similar bill in the Senate and where's it at in the process..

"Our For America. Michael's Hey, Welcome in everyone. What a day to be Pinch Hitting. My name is Dom Giordano, happy to be sitting in for Dr Savage again. And if you ever want to answer someone, you know what that you guys doing? Talk radio. Why does talk radio exist? It's about what's happening right now. Under what three weeks until election day, and with all that early voting going on out there where we are in a bit of a meltdown here first Twitter and then apparently Facebook. Are blocking or banning or not allowing sharing of the information of the New York Post story. You know if this were some Out there, publication. Alright. It would be bad enough people want information. And, you know, I talked with people before the show today. We didn't think this was going to move the needle because stuff like this has been out there about the Biden family. In this case, Hunter biting. But what the heck has triggered Facebook and Twitter. And has there been another instance like this, where they shut down a perfectly mainstream story. Have you listened to talk radio great shows like the savage Nation. If you follow Dr Savage on Twitter at a savage nation. Check out michael savage dot com I have been there last year minutes. Probably headlines. Five stories high. Here's the headline in New York Post today. Biden's Abiding secret emails about 100 biting again. There's ne'er do well. I guess you can still say that right? Whether it's a story today and my own shot of Philadelphia that I talked about first, where it's alleged that Biden son in law is advising him on Corona virus response. And the son in law. Another venture capitalist. Look, I'm sure there's some venture capitalists that are legit that are listening. But it seems to be almost a code for people that I don't know, have somebody of influence and they're close to them. That's the venture. That's the capitalism. 100 biting and apparently John Kerry's son with Ukraine, and probably even worse with China. We're venture capitalists. And they ventured with the vice president. It appears To use the influence of the appearance of influence of his office. In order to get a lot of money personally from the communist Chinese and from various interest in Ukraine. So the story is not well to me. It's more of the same. Maybe they're afraid Facebook and Twitter that implicates Biden, Joe Biden more directly. The bottom line. Is this according to their story. Hunter Biden, the guy that has a computer fix it shop seems to think it was Hunter Biden brought in a computer. Dropped off at a repair shop in biting some state of Delaware. April 2019. Material extracted from the computer includes. They say this 12 minute video that appears to show Hunter in all kinds of things. It was struggling with addiction problems. But The customer who brought in the water damage. Mac Book pro for repair, never paid for the service or retrieved it. Or a hard drive in which its contents were stores, according to the shop owner. You said he tried repeatedly to contact the quiet Shop owner couldn't possibly identify the customers under Biden, but said the laptop or a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation, named after Hunters late brother Okay? So somehow another they get In addition to this damaging Allegedly damaging stuff with him an addiction problems, they get the following email. From a guy named Very MME. Pas Czarsky. Okay? Contact in Ukraine and he writes, Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to D C And given me an opportunity and putting in the acts of bad accent to meet your father and spend some time together. It's really an honor and pleasure. As we spoke yesterday evening, it would be great to meet today for a quick coffee. What do you think? I could combine to you, office. That's what he says you office somewhere around noon or so. Before my way to the airport Best V. Apparently, the allegation is this. The New York Post says This is a never before revealed meeting mentioned in a message of appreciation from this guy and advisor to the board of Charisma. Allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17 2015, about a year after 100 joined the charisma board. And it's getting too What Joe Biden knew what Joe Biden has said he knew and who we knew about all this stuff and everything that went into I still think the red Chinese thing to me is worse and smells more. But the acquaint thing is where we have this, But here's the thing. Why in the world now is this some kind of artificial 30 day rule? You know, this is kind of like citizens. United Supreme Court case that this idea that you can't be talking about our publicizing or doing something If the gods have technology, you know what else? This gets that This gets at again and people like Tucker Carlson on Fox. Repeatedly is the one that talks about this if it gets to the idea Of Silicon Valley. It gets to the idea of the amount of control now I'm not a guy that You know, goes around talking about trust, busting and all the stuff but it gets to what they're trying to do here today. This is really shocking. I can't point to anything else right here on the Michael Savage show. That we quite seen like this. In other words, they're blocking first Twitter, then Facebook. A link to this story. I talked about it today. I didn't think it was that remarkable because we have so much big stuff going on with Supreme Court hearing with President Trump Some of the stuff he's saying, we have doing town halls tomorrow night. You get so much stuff out there. But in the judgment, I guess of the top people, a Twitter and then Facebook follows. Who else is going to do this? They're telling people You don't have a right to see this. Now. This is the New York Post. Going to tell us the Russians are behind this, too. This isn't some fly by night out that they may not like I love The New York Post. I love the style. I love the headlines. Of, uh, page six. Everything they dio I like I have to admit it fits right into talk radio. That aside, do they think this sinks bite and somehow another. They think it's unfair to 100 biting. Do they think this story and that's about all that? They wrote on all that they have Twitter and Facebook. Do they think this will materially turn this campaign? I mean, think of all the things they've printed about President Trump. Think of the number of exposes How much was anything ever blocked there? How much stuff do they go into with that? Why would this be something you would block? And I'm sure when the dust settles here. Congress is gonna have to get involved with them that that guy Hawley from Missouri is one I'm going to bring him in. They're gonna have to start up with these guys. That have this entity that is just critical right now making decisions about some information like this that we haven't seen any rationale. Other than you. You can't like that. I don't know what Google's doing where you find it, but New York Post site. I don't know if they There's anything done with that. But they won't allow people to transmit it to others is the idea share it? This is too explosive. How many more things that they're going to cut down on? How much more this is going to go to. And what is it? Are they still smarting from the stupid idea? Let's go back to that in 2016, the Russians I think Putin is pure, unadulterated evil KGB. I agree, But the real threat is China. They're the biggest threat imaginable and how many different ways including Every LeBron James in the world coopted by them, telling us to shut up about their abuses around the world. They're historically bad China. Going to go back to that, though they spent about $30,000 as Faras. We can tell the Russians they were putting out. Things that were like from Ah cartoon to try to defeat the other side. They were ham handed. So I think that was effective. No. This Facebook, then think our people are Doakes. It's a lowest common denominator. If people see this, they're automatically going to vote for Trump. Do they think the New York Post is in the tank? Do they think that they're engaged in stuff here? At the behest of Trump. Or did they think by some way, shape or form The New York Post's got onto a very good story here. At the strategic way. The thing that I don't like is I think Trump has to be prime tomorrow night. When he's on the campaign. He's got to keep on asking something The American people do care about. And that is why won't Joe Biden comma Harris? Tell us where they're going to pack the Supreme Court something that would change this nation literally, That's not hype forever. If they engage in, that will be a one party system. It would be all over. God knows what they would do it with talk radio. If they had their chance. So why this because they can and because they're going to do more of this between now.

But they won't allow people to transmit it to others is the idea share it? This is too explosive. How many more things that they're going to cut down on? How much warning this is going to go to And what is it? Are they still smarting from the stupid idea? Let's go back to that in 2016, the Russians I think Putin is pure, unadulterated evil KGB. I agree, But the real threat is China. They're the biggest threat imaginable and how many different ways including Every LeBron James in the world coopted by them, telling us to shut up about their abuses around the world.

"The discussion you called me a you know the story by now once it Sanders said a woman couldn't be trump Sanders denied it it was a fourteen second moment in a night that lasted two hours in a campaign that's been underway for more than a year but the handshake moment cap several days of vitriol by the to progressive camps and since then even more Democrats in disarray stories have come out Hillary Clinton told reporters that no one like Sanders why did she go the team Sanders has accused Biden of supporting cuts to social security in the past Biden accused the Sanders campaign of doctoring the video about that the times indoors clover charm and Warren underscoring this progressive verses moderate lane thing so who will this help and who will it hurt and there's also this if you haven't seen it yet the new national CNN poll out yesterday had Bernie Sanders in the lead first place for the first time the head of Joe Biden nationally among Democrats so is it possible that some of this tough campaign and is working to his benefit my guess now is Katrina vanden Heuvel editor and publisher of the nation magazine her latest piece is one versus Sanders jeopardized progressives best shot in a generation hi Katrina look about to WNYC thank you Brian vertiginous times yes I'm feeling dizzy just remembering what vertiginous means vertigo the the candidate yes editors say though I want you know the latest how to put IT installment I think latest I mean we've seen of the center's campaign now and come back with an issue attack in my view on the Biden campaign vis a vis the issue of social security Biden select record and history and talking about possible cuts to the very popular important program but it's Mrs Clinton I think in the last twenty four hours correct me if I'm wrong Brian who really quick stole the show I think the New York times mirror gauge glide minor the number of members then the member of the editorial board endorsed Elizabeth Warren and Amy clover shore a few days ago but the headlines for editorial Mrs Clinton you already beat Bernie Sanders trump is the opponent now and I mean to say is she did Mrs Clinton and you know you understand was the was a body blow to the body politic trump's victory could imagine what it was like in her life but to say that nobody likes Bernie Sanders into people supported his campaign in twenty sixteen doing so again in twenty twenty so I think it would be important to us this is Clinton to perhaps exit the stage and it's interesting to me that even Clinton partisans like governor Randall of Pennsylvania or others during the call of of former governor of believers Virginia big Clinton loyalist upset because of this issue of party unity but to be honest it you know Brian you covered many campaigns unity is a rare thing and I but I do think in this year twenty twenty what's at stake is I I to the fight for the soul and direction of the Democratic Party in more stark wage and we've seen in many years even more than a twenty sixteen I'm sorry two thousand and eight when they were high levels of negativity between president Obama and Hillary Clinton but this is a real fight for the direction of the Democratic Party this is you know leading to what we're saying there are some who would ask is now the time to have that fight in a deep way as opposed to look for the person who can best defeat this existential threat to the Republic Donald Trump assuming he's still there to run for reelection in November and the differences I mean the times editorial endorsing morning club which are was making the point and and mark a came on the show the other day I was talking about that well the chart in the so called moderate wing and one in the so called progressive wing really aren't that different on policy the Democrat who stands for a basic block of things so go ahead and disagree I disagree I I think first of all the New York times posited that there's a kind of radical wing in a moderate wing or realist wing and I would I would submit that radical is the new realism I mean that in the context of Americans yes Democrats seeking to now at the center of debate a green new deal Medicare for all however you get there a wealth tax free higher read student debt cancellation these are these are policies being debated at the national stage in realistic ways and I do think the real differences between Amy clover shore and Elizabeth Warren which is why the New York times in an entry you know endorsement is supposed to be color fine you can argue they punted they should have selected one but they I think people are divided and some of that division is what you're saying that so many Democrats not just Democrats but never trumpeters wanted to seek from but I think the way to do that is to energize not go for the as Jim Hightower the great Texas populist used to say the only thing in the center of the road are dead armadillos line you're right though he wrote the recent feud between one and Sanders quote jeopardized the best chance that progressive Democrats have had in a generation to put a candidate who shares their values in the White House how much do you think it has jeopardized I mean candidates running against each other will run against each other so is it that big a deal that this handshake thing happened or that they were criticizing each other better because it's deepening the progressive lane of our politics and shaping the future of a party on not to get too far ahead but you know you go into that convention which may be one of the most exciting conventions exciting I put in quotes in recent contemporary history but if Bernie and Warren are controlling a real block that can direct the outcome of that convention you could see the possibility of a brokered convention were it goes to the super delegates in the second ballot and you know establishment forces would be better positioned at that time and I don't want to get to in the weeds but there are serious issues and ideas and RD it's a different thing what Bernie Sanders and Warner doing now to me it's very important because I think we just passed the mark of the citizens United decision two days ago I believe Cory Johnson over send us versus citizens United Supreme Court decision allowing just you know corporate dark money to flow in our politics I think it's really important to candidates or untethered from a rigged money system and are raising grassroots dollars and we're weighing the boldness of you know their health care plans or the way they redefined United States role in the world these are big issues that are at stake and Biden and that we're gonna party does have a different take listeners are you Bernie Sanders Elizabeth one supporter what do you think of the in fighting the perceived in fighting or the way the media are representing the in fighting do you agree with Michael my guest Katrina vanden Heuvel editor and publisher of the nation magazine and by the way also a Washington post columnist one of her significant pieces on this was in The Washington Post the other day that it's bad for the progressive movement or that attacks we've seen over the past weeks are necessary that hurling insults about Sanders alleged sexism or one village elitism is what the primary is for our listeners what do you think enter this conversation anywhere you want two one two four three three W. NYC four three three nine six nine two and country before we go to a break and then bring in the callers is it especially this year too dismissive to write off a Joe Biden or navy club which are with the phrase corporate Democrats as I think you do I take your point Brian I would say establishment I don't think it's dismissive I think of you know in every election there are tax I would like to see attacks on issues tonight I do think Bernie Sanders and worn to a large extent hold to that ground but I think you got a cold out and that doesn't mean the party won't come around when there's a general candidate in the general election but you know what it's a it's an important moment not just for restoration I think let me put it this way I think of Joe Biden is a restoration candidate and I do not deny and I do not dismiss that millions of people seek restoration because trump interview is so odious toxic dangerous but I do think one could be more bold and ambitious than just seeking restoration because was a symptom of grave problems in this country that demands on my mind more than restoration demand the bold ideas of both what Warren and Bernie Sanders hold short I think it's a complex time of one goes into this not with certainty but I think this is a moment before we hit a general candidate were there should be a fight for the soul of the Democratic Party I think that's an important fight to have and it's not that from analysts I argued because I think it brings new people into the process I think it it it it energizes people and it expands the electorate in ways that means that a candidate like a Bernie Sanders are listed one could do see trump and I think it's defeatist to believe that only an establishment candidate can do so we'll continue in a minute with Katrina vanden Heuvel and your calls stay with us tired of alternate side parking is sitting in traffic got down if you're thinking about saying goodbye to your car why not consider donating it to W. NYC you'll get a tax deduction and W. NYC.

"He was seventy nine but his family says they wish you could be longer but at least he lived long enough to see the Amazon catch fire he's gonna have to re examine his view of prostate cancer notice the laughter and cheering from the crowd before he even got to the punch line Mar goes on in cut thirty I know the same like harsh words and harsh jokes and I'm sure I will be condemned for them on fox news which will portray Mr coke is a principled libertarian who believe in the free market he and his brother have done more than anybody to fund climate science deniers for decades so for him the Amazon is burning up I'm glad he's dead glad he's dead I help the end was painful his big **** was the Amazon actually New York times is reporting over the weekend that that story has been oversold the areas that are burning are largely pieces of land that have been burned and cleared before by farmers were gonna plant things and that historically the fire is currently are not a huge operation now we should keep an eye on it no one wants to see the Amazon in flames wild life in danger I am a conservationist I'm on some level environmentalist but to use that as sort of your entree to figure out a way to paint this man who just died as evil because he was in fact a libertarian and he believes that government strategies government tactics government policies government over reach in fact would not be successful are helpful in many cases that is a completely defensible world view and even if you disagree with his limited government principles that he lived out think of all the amazing good that David coke did not just building a successful company which is a good thing by the way I know for some that's a strike against him it shouldn't be he's also donated and contributed to the arts in a massive way she gave M. I. T. more than one hundred and thirty million dollars in research grants just gave the money to try to fight and and cancer he has entire wings of hospitals named after him including a wing at a facility where Ruth better Ginsburg was just treated for cancer he was exceptionally generous he also fought for a lot of things that many on the left his harshest critics port to support they're all about immigration reform all about criminal justice reform they're all for gay rights the coax where their allies on those fronts and there are advocacy was well funded as well but they get no credit for that David coke it's like it never happened if you think that the government more often than not is a stumbling block to progress and you want to limit it and you feel like the government isn't the solution no matter what you do on other issues no matter how much money you give directly to improve humanity to improve the quality of life of people around the planet right cutting out the middle man of the government making a ton of money yourself and giving it to superb causes to better mankind no matter what you do that doesn't count because overall you were on the wrong side and therefore you get comments like you heard there from bill Maher it wasn't just Mar who sometimes has some interesting truth said he tells ME can be unpredictable but this is just a hideous thing to say and his blue check marks all over Twitter and social media over the weekend actively arguing yes it is a good thing that this man is dead and then all the good that David coca's John they either disqualified or discounted thing okay well he might have been good on a few issues but that's overshadowed by this other stuff that we don't agree with and yeah maybe he gave to charity but I was only a tax write off for was selfish because he was battling cancer so for him to give money for cancer research it was just self interested imagine a dreaming up ways to attack someone forgiving of hundreds of millions of dollars to fight cancer in his lifetime and the gymnastics that you have to do to cast that is a selfish and bad thing it's just it's sick get sick you don't have to like someone you have to agree with someone your have to celebrate their legacy unquestioningly because they've just passed away if you don't have something nice to say maybe keep your mouth shut or figure out maybe there are some nice things you can say today some of the disagreements will in Jordan will be having those debates for a long time for a certain segment that's just not possible anymore it's it's it's a very hateful and disturbing thing to watch and the self righteousness David coke did more to help humanity than any of these a holes combined ever well in their entire lifetimes their misanthrope they're miserable and frankly they deserve to be ignored and or two he prayed for because they need help if that's your reaction if someone other than Osama bin laden or like Hitler dies someone on the other side of the political spectrum his family is in pain and morning and your response is to go in public and as loudly as possible celebrate their death there is something wrong with you thank you should maybe reevaluate your life a little bit I do wanna give Bernie Sanders some credit on this particular topic because he was at an event where the death of David coke was applauded by a left wing audience and Sanders scolded them listen to cut twenty eight your question one and into several different directions I don't the plug you know the the the death of somebody we we didn't do that I think what we can say is that the cold brothers and all of the billion else because of this disastrous citizens United Supreme Court decision I have been able to spend hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars to elect candidates who represent the wealthy and the powerful powerful and the fossil fuel industry yes fine criticize what he did with his money in some cases I would say citizens United I think was rightly decided as a free speech case I notice of Bernie Sanders I've never problem with big money in politics when the big money is coming from the labor unions for example public sector unions spending was it a billion dollars over recent decades there was a big Wall Street journal story on that a few years ago right it's big labor that money is fine if it's Tom's dire and George Soros that money is fine when is Planned Parenthood the abortion lobby that money sign well but the cook brothers even when a lot of it going to things at the left as I said in theory should support that's bad money in politics evil evil but at least Bernie said we needn't applaud the death of somebody which is what the crowd to just done what a bad place you have to praise a politician for saying something that my old like Hey let's not cheer for death but that's where we are so congratulations to Bernie Sanders I guess and rest in peace David cook I was not planning on doing another segment on his passing on the show we did one last week but given this.

"Kind of wall is off and do not want the court piece to be all up in this because it's not about the going it really isn't about us. Trying to make sure that we do our job as in as our is a co equal branch of government. No matter what. And is that said, there's certain things that come to our attention that if we don't look at them, it is legislative malpractice. And so. Again. I think we need to be careful. I don't want us to go too far feel I think, but I want us to two zero in on what our job is not what the course job is. But what our job is? And so that's why I wanted to just remind everybody, I'm going to go to Mr. leave, and then I'm gonna come back to you, Mr. Maloney, Mr Lee. Thank you. Mr Chairman, I do have concerns about the amendment. I mean, in many ways, and I moved to strike the last word, but many ways it infers in some ways that were deferring our responsibility or duty and constant referral as if the United States to premium court, whatever actions that they're having somehow coincides with our responsibility. And it doesn't I mean, I think we are missing the center, Mr Chairman, the people that are impacted by this. I represent close to ninety percent African American community in the city of Detroit. Sixty percent of my district is African Marion, I bring this up because of this, I want to know what this. Memo by this political appointee to at the Commerce Department named James automatic. I want that document because this isn't about citizenship question getting on are not whatever decisions are being made at whatever level. This is about the intense by the current administration cannot include communities of color, who tend to vote line with maybe different perspectives are different online, different political party. This is about not counting everyone. That is in our country. This is a political motive and Yes, Mr chairman, I have to say to, to this back, this is cheating in many ways, in election. This is cheating by Thane. We don't want to count everybody. We want count as less people's possible in that impacts directly communities of color. So the less they count, they draw the lines so that people that are in currently in power maybe knows in the administration have more power. The fact that the matter is a political appointee. Guaranteed memo. We can. We know that Dame's the Meyer printed, a copy of this memo walked it over to the department of Justice. He didn't Email it. He hand delivered it. We have a right. As this body to see that memo to see what the intentive put the political debate or party. What about a side, this is about whether or not we at the country wants to count, every single person, no matter their status and so forth. But doing this, this is political motivation Mr. very rice allies. This is because you don't want communities like mine being represented here in this chamber equally. This is about that, and it and it really. It breaks my heart honestly to be and talking about, well, this is what's happening. And they didn't. They didn't do this. And they didn't do that. No remember that these are people that have every right to be counted, every right to have access to opportunities because of based on, whatever we do, maybe around education, healthcare, whatever it is. This is corruption at its core. This is political corruption when somebody outside of the agency outside of administrative role as telling people in this chamber. This is what we're going to do. We're going to put the citizenship question forward. Well, I'm sorry. I want to see the memo Mr Chairman, I have a right to see the memo, my district wants to see the memo and maybe your district's don't maybe not, but majority of our districts want to see the member. We want to know what this political appointees. True intent was is it really about citizenship. No, it's about reducing the number of people color in this country being counted in the census. That's exactly what it's about because you want to cheat. He wants to cheat Mr Chairman, he wants to cheat this process, while not on our watch, and I will not defer, my responsibility as a member of congress to the United supreme court six hundred fifty thousand people..

"Yeah. Thank you for asking. The question. Is it your assumption that I supported will believe in authoritarian communism that existed in the Soviet Union? I don't never happen. I that I believe in a vigorous democracy, but you have asked me the question about democratic socialism fair question, and let me answer I happen to believe that in the United States. There is something fundamentally wrong when we have three families only will wealth than the bottom half of American society hundred and sixty million people something wrong when the top one percent owns more wealth than the bottom. Ninety two percent something very wrong. When forty nine percent of all new income today is going to the top one percent and something is equally wrong. But we have a corrupt political system. Made even worse by this. Disastrous citizens United supreme court decision, which allows billionaires the spend unlimited sums of money to elect candidates represent the wealthy and the papal so Anson onto your question. Zo radical ideal. Maybe not everybody agrees. But I happen to believe we should have a government that represents working families and not just the one percent and powerful corporations. But that's nice. None of that was an answer to a question. He will you know what though to Karl Rove's point yesterday? Bernie Sanders has learned from his run with Hillary. He's learned to never answer the question. If it's an uncomfortable answer, he's learned how to slither he's learned how to become more snake like into slither around the question that's been asked to take it in the direction in which he wants to go and give total on answer. Yeah. Sees becoming he's become a politician. And how do we know that because he's become a millionaire a million a million, and you could become a full-fledged politician. So I don't so he didn't answer the question. The question that she asked him was how do you rectify your notion of democratic socialism with the failures of socialism in nearly every country? That's tried it and he didn't answer. He just said, I just don't want on fantas. Well, neither did the Bolsheviks. But like what about what happened to the Soviet Union? The the plan is it you you would know intimately Bernie you honeymoon there. I mean at some point maybe like like, how did all of this happen? What is socialism due to countries? What's happening in Venezuela? Right now. He he also said since you've asked about democratic socialism. That's not what she asked about shouldn't ask about democratic social there's no such thing as democratic socialism. It's a made of term like these made up terms that people insist on throwing around and giving legitimacy to there's no such. Thing as democratic socialism. Look, it's socialism with a pretty name. It's still socialist, right and socialism entails basically taking property then distributing it and who gets to decide to distribute it the elected officials in your democratic socialist system. Right. You're advocating democracy gets to pick. What resources get sent where what happens in a democracy? If all of the resources are controlled by the majority of people is the tyranny of the majority, and who gets hurt by that minority viewpoints, minority physicians minority coalitions minority people all of that are her by. And it's something that Bernie Sanders never addresses. He just kind of skates passed it. He just says, you know, be great if poor people made more money and rich people may less money. So that the poor people can make more money. That's essentially how he sums it up. And and yet he doesn't really want to address or reckon with the failures of socialism broadly, and it happened again. Tonight. Here's also Bernie Sanders on calling for the nationalization of major industries. He doesn't disavow these comments. You used to argue that you should have government control. The means of capitalism of energy companies found that I says in the seventies right now. But hold on you say God gogo hates himself. Now saying is that you've changed? Well, wait a minute. I thought you know, he has me criticizing meteorologist, but he gets nervous about Iran. One of many things that makes me nervous. Is I was a mayor of a city free. That nationalized the industry in the city of Burlington, Vermont, I don't think it would have. I said what I said. And that is I want to live in a nation. In which all people in the wealthiest nation in the history of the world can have a decent standard of living. I'm not talking about everybody owning a big fancy house or Cadillac or anything like that. But I think we can do what the nations in the world are ready. I mean, the ideas that I'm advocating few tonight, you know, not so radical. They're not so radical to home to Venezuela. I, but he didn't actually address question. He's like one of Sadat actually said in the seventies. Okay. Have you ever? What did you say? In the seventies. He admits that he's like, okay. I did say that. But then he's like I didn't nationalize anything when I was mayor of Burlington Vermont. Yeah. 'cause you were mayor, right? Six fifteen now. More coming out of the CNN town ause last night. Gosh, this guy. This guy is.

"Before. Whether something's healthy. Should come before. Whether or not something safe. Should come before. Whether or not something is responsible behavior towards children towards the earth towards other people of the world should come before any interest in peace and even economic vibrancy in the future. This is a mindset that poses as economic good it poses as smart economics. Even though for forty years. The evidence is clear. The does not do anything to build economic vibrancy here in South Carolina, turning down Medicaid expansion. It's all it does is hurt people and yet Americans who do value goodness have been so propaganda. By such billions of dollars put into this kind of of of gas lighting that now people are. Finally, awakening to the realization that if an individual has no ethics and an individual has no morals and an individual has no concern about anything other than themselves. That's that's a sociopath. So an economic system which posits no moral responsibility to people to anything all that matters. Is that we make money, then our stockholders get richer is not it it it. It's sociopathic. It's a sociopathic economic system so underneath whether whether you're talking about the environment or you're talking about children. Are you talking about national security all these issues where we're challenged have an underlying issue, which is that this economic system, which posits that short-term profit maximization should be the organizing principle for our society. And particularly the time when our government has become census. Citizens. United supreme court decision is allowed for just unlimited corporate spending in our campaigns. We know how we have a government that is basically handmaiden. So declaration of independence says governments are instituted to secure our rights our government as often as not now acts as an agency to secure the right of these multi-national corporations who make a profit more than it acts as an agency to secure our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The American people need to understand this because it's not enough for just a politician to understand it and say, I'll go to Washington and fight for you. Also that's naive because these forces are so huge you have to understand it. And you have to understand that we all have to understand it. We it's not enough this idea of politics, a spectator sport and a political class, and they're going to handle it. That's how we got here. We need an awakening of the American mind because the American we're we're decent people. No less than anyone else. And when we see we've been messed with we don't take it. The problem is we don't too many people don't see where been this. So I think of myself as. I know when you said earlier we were naming things because in the world of personal transformation, which has been my career for thirty five years. You're going to sit in front of me. We're going to have a session what's going on? And if you give me anything other than what to did I'll ask you again, what's really going on? What would you do? So many said that would you do and you wouldn't be sitting with me unless you trusted that. This was a sacred space to hold up. And I'd say them what you say. So when it's a win you said that he'd probably cut the deal, right? So. Yeah. So we'd go deep we talked about what really happened. So America will these very serious times. And we will not get through this mess. These challenges this crisis in our democracy, without the average person understanding because the tentacles of this mindset are everywhere their local their state. They're not just federal. So it's not enough for somebody in Washington to get it. People have to get everywhere we have to get to the point where citizenship is simply dimension of what we all know is is being living a meaningful life now within that specific issues millions of American children living in chronic trauma. Why for the very reason I said because that's not where we're spending our money. The fact that in we're not really moving forward with the deepest level of racial reconciliation why?.

"That we spend far more per capita on health care than any other country on earth while at the same time tens of millions of fellow Americans are uninsured or underinsured some how or another Trump got to get to that. How can President Trump not discuss the terrible attacks that we all sitting to undermine the fundamentals of American democracy live how which includes the disastrous citizens United supreme court decision that allows billion as faith into elections. Trump talked a lot about freedom tonight. But somehow, we know he didn't talk about governance f it's all across this country governors who are trying to suppress the boat and make it harder for poor people or people call it a vote. You can't talk about freedom in America and Noel, the massive amounts of voter suppression. Taking place denying people the right to participate in our democracy. Donald Trump talked about the economy, but he forgot to mention the holocaust that state after state is doing the right thing and is raising the minimum wage to a living wage fifteen dollars an hour. But I didn't hear President Trump say that he would work with me and with other advocates of living wage who raise the minimum wage at the federal level to fifteen bucks hour somehow didn't get into that. I like how I code President Trump not mentioned the word on how he failed security Medicare, Medicaid in a state of the union speech when he promised over and over again during his campaign, you remember that that he would not cut these programs. Could it be because his budget pose massive cuts to Medicare and Medicaid and social? Security in direct violation drag him. How could Trump not talk about the reality that Russia through cyber warfare into feed our election in two thousand sixteen hashtag is insecure. Good luck with the Russia. People. Sure. To interfere in the two thousand cheese. Arrested mid-term election. She would be how can the president say nothing? About yen is rushing humanitarian crisis in the where the worst outta -tarian crisis in the world is currently taking place brought on by as sorted led wall that the United States is supporting and just yesterday CNN report detailed how Saudi and Murata allies have been giving US made weapons to hell Qaeda link fighters. Good on also fallen into the hands of rates in backer. Now, atty. Pretty well. This war is disaster. Solution him into sponsored last bowling on the president. Terrible total and local house. Factors. This is an enormously bar policy issue. It speaks to our relationship with the despotic regime. Saudi Arabia, somehow Trump forgot to mention that President Trump has stated tonight and over and over and over and over again that building a wall on the Mexican border is a nationally. In fact, he shut down the government and caused enormous pain and uncertainty, but some eight hundred thousand federal employees who are forced to go to work when not paid all because of his insistence on that will know President Trump building a wall is not an emergency in terms of immigration in this country.

"Have been able to leverage their wealth and their interest in ways that are unfair. And I think that speaks to the inequality, but it also directly speaks to the special interests that are paid for by people of wealth and corporations who are looking for influence what the hell did he just say so him? Yeah. Got a person of means that is using your money to influence things and get things done. I mean now you can use your money for good, and you can use it for bad. He's describing himself but saying that, you know, don't call us billionaires because just become a catchphrase does like saying, well, don't call me black faces because if a black on my faces Sam a person who's adopted color is. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, I just don't know enough about his stance because he's just not appealing to me everything about this guy. I mean, it was so funny. Bill Maher say goes, I went from never heard of the guy to absolutely hating him in five days. I don't think I've ever done that before you know. I don't hate him. I just I don't think that he knows what he's talking about. He's a guy that things the by the he's everything when we talk about public financing of elections. This is the perfect reason why you should not be able to put your own money into that that it should be publicly financed. Everybody gets the same amount. Everybody gets the same crack at the media. And so it's a fair contest lights. You know? That's I don't see why people have a problem with that citizens United as you well know corporations to act as people and donate soft money. And if you don't know thing soft money and hard money hard money if I give it directly to a Canada. There isn't limit on that I'm with thirty five hundred dollars. I've leave but I can give unlimited. Because of citizens United supreme court decision. I can give unlimited to the party. So that's why Mitch McConnell got three and a half million dollars from Russian oligarch. Did you know that? Did you know the his campaign got three and a half million dollars not him personally? But it was a campaign that he and other senators were part of and then once that money goes there, they can do whatever they want with it. They can give it all to one candidate if they want to so in effect, they still get the money anyway. Yeah. So that's that's why we gotta get money out of politics. But that's another catchphrase all we need to get money out of politics. I think I was sink about it is you want to just limit the amount of money a person can put into their own campaign to the candidates actually have to want to do that. I mean, we could say that until we're blue in the face, but the candidates should have to pledge the poor candidates want it and the rich candidates don't. But that's why the voter needs to pressure them. Like if you want my vote, this is what you need to do. That's what Bernie did. That's what Bernie did. So he got all these, you know, thirty dollars twenty five dollar and he had an insane. A grassroots effort behind him. And that's why people. Oh, loved him during the twentieth or twenty six. Fan. That's why people love to because they're like, you know, what I'm literally digging in my pocket, and I'm taking out the twenty five to one hundred bucks, and I'm sending ten minute matters. And they see that it will be it'll feel like corporations sponsoring a candidate things about being a politician. The first is having a having a an idea or set of ideas, and a consistency to those ideas that people can embrace and the other part is leading in other words, so you can have great ideas and integrate platform, but can you take that in percentage of opposition? And and also support right? And you can you show them. This is my plan and moving ahead. That's why this stage. We don't know anything about anybody unless they've already served right Kamla Harris looks like somebody we really liked but how will she deal with conflict? How will she deal when she pushed, you know? I mean, that's that's what campaigning is for. I mean, I think that you know, I want specifics. I think I definitely liked what Baidoa work did when he was running. I mean, it wasn't even running in my state, but he used social media wisely. Recently, though, have you seen lately? Tripped over zone thing. And now, you know, but he's not running yet. Well, he is. I mean, he's he's. No out soon. Have you heard that he might? But I'm just saying I think that while he was actually running for an office in Texas. He used social media wisely. He took issues like the kneeling and everything like that. Put it out. There wasn't a sound bite. He explained it to people that disagreed with disposition, mar. And that's what candidates need to do. Don't speak in soundbites talking specifics. It's a marathon. And is is anybody that runs knows? It's important how you finished. But it's also important every mile away especially in in a long race. Like these guys have because I mean, it's February we're talking November of next year. Yeah. I if you also think about the I mean, I was listening to this morning or a couple mornings going ANG. You know, the primaries are going to be in a couple of months, and then we're gonna know who we're going to have for the prime minister who are going to be the nominees before that. So it's like a long way from here. Now whenever the debates are gonna come going to determine to the primaries is going to be the nominee. All right. So yeah, I get it. All right. Trump's gonna be delivering a second state of the union. You can hear it here on K G O and afterwards talk about it with Pat, and John let's go to John right now in San Ramon, not John Rothman. But this John John you're on with chicken, Nikki, okay? But thank you very much. Thank you very much. You know, I want someone not yet. But when Trump tell the lie, I would really like someone to call them on it and yell. You're a liar. When someone does it to someone with class like Obama, he left some be quiet. And then he moves on. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But he can't say I'll pay for the attorney to kick your ass. And that's that's true. Although he still might say it, and then so it'll be like you can't do that, sir. Well in this forum that would show a whole lot of difference to everybody. Well, he'll be speaking to a enough numbers that could impeach him. But the question is, of course, is what point does this guy convinced twenty Republican senators that they need to vote to remove him from office. And that's the frightening thing. I think a lot of people are worried about impeaching him. The same way they're worried about yelling out to give him any sense of compassion, or empathy from the American public. We know who he is really curious how he would react. You know, what I mean, he would lose his mind and start screaming. Probably I don't think it'll happen though. I would love to see him do it. And then gets him get so flustered. That would be awesome. I just I would add hate to. I'm sure he's preparing for it. If I was preparing for her. I would have a lot of different lines ready. Good good. You're gonna come much credit, brother. I know I know I do thanks for the call eight hundred eight ten that's you can go. You can talk to us coming up. You know, the thing about watching one of these things on television. It's going to be different shots on every networks every network, and I wonder how many are going to do the unflattering shots. You know? There's like there's a I think that you know, you get a feed of a whole bunch of different shots in each network. Can choose. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So I'm I'm pretty sure I'm going to watch FOX on one and CNN on the other and see how they cover him. And, you know, do they in the shots of the audience, and who they show who will be there from the supreme court ought to be interesting to tonight as well. I want to talk about this. So this little bit different. There's a plan here in the city to open safe injection sites for drugs. You know? So go ahead and shoot yourself, basically. And we'll talk about that Jerry Brown. Vetoed it. But Scott Weiner, who is a state Senator. He's a former supervisor state Senator who he wants to do it again. How do you feel about people shooting up drugs in the city? That's next on you chip Franklin on K G O eight ten and streaming.

"Live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, we've been telling you about House Democrats and their plans to vote on legislation to provide a public campaign finance bonanza for their congressional candidates for more on this. Now, we're joined by Ken Doyle, Bloomberg government, senior editor for money and politics. And can we talk about this? This proposal before Democrats are supposed to be opposed to big money in politics. But apparently, not this kind of big money. What's the latest? The idea is that that they're opposed to big donors not necessarily big big money. Because this would this would make candidates who take public financing eligible for a lot of money, maybe even up to five million dollars. So, but the idea is to sort of counter the influence of big private donors by providing public funding for candidates who volunteer to to limit their private contributions. They would have to limit. Contributions to no more than two hundred dollars that would be eligible for this matching funds. So it's basically changing the mix, but there's so much money involved in campaigns right now, it's impossible. And under this the supreme court decisions that have come down in this area. It's very difficult. If not impossible to limit the overall amount. So it really is about changing the mix and they've they've introduced this Bill. It's really the centerpieces. It's designated as HR number one. It's it's really the centerpiece of what Democrats have said that they wanted to with their house majority. They've started the hearing process on it. They had the first hearing this week and are more hearing scheduled, and they hope to bring it. I think to the house floor and get it passed through the democratic controlled house in the coming weeks and make it really a central part of their argument for why Democrats ought to be in charge of the government. So can it looks like no matter how you slice it. If you are running for a high political office of any kind year gonna be having to somehow get into a multimillion dollar up. I mean, this is a lot of money. What difference is changing the mix do the differences influence, right? I mean that if you the system that we have. Now is very heavily influenced by big morning money donors, special interest, corporations unions lobbyists and individuals with with millions of dollars to to provide two campaigns. And the thought here is that that limits the influence of ordinary voters and participation of before voters a problem with just getting people to be interested in politics because they feel like they can't make a difference. And what happened in the last election was Democrats won a majority in the house with a lot of small donors support. They were able to to. Attract donors who could give limited small amounts over over the internet online, and they are trying to kind of encourage that trend by boosting with a big six to one match of of federal dollars. Which would be if that happened. It would really change the system. Okay. This is gonna be dead on arrival over in the Republican controlled Senate. Yeah. So this is about the issue of campaign finance actually about well. It's about getting deal over to the Senate for that will be talked about for the next couple of years as we run up to a presidential election in twenty twenty. It's about talk know, it's about saying Democrats are in favour of changing the system Republicans in that first hearing in the House Judiciary committee, the Republicans on the committee wind up very solidly against the Bill. Senator Mitch McConnell who's the Republican leader who said a very long term opponent. Of campaign finance reform. He made a statement on the Senate floor on the same day as the first hearing saying this is dead on arrival in in the Senate Republicans will oppose it, and it sets up a debate that I think the Democrats really wanna have you know, where they're they're saying. We're in favor of changing the system McConnell saying nobody cares about this. This is not an issue that people vote on and and the people the candidates don't really want it either. And so, you know, nothing's going to change. And that's that's the question. I think going forward is if the Democrats get through this through the house will anything happen in the Senate will there even be pressure on the Senate tacked on it is this sort of the Democrats answer to citizens United. Exactly, I mean, the citizens United supreme court decision in two thousand ten completely really changed. The the way that we financed campaigns and made outside spending groups that are funded by very large owners really essential to competitive campaigns. And this is why we see in the last. Campaign last midterm election campaign cost more than five billion dollars. It was more than a third higher than the than the largest than the previous midterm campaign by far the highest amount of money ever spending. And there's really no limit incite to what to wear cams campaigns will go after that. While we have you Mr. door. We have a whole bunch of people announcing their candidacies for the democratic nomination for president. When will we find out about their finances and their filings at the the first filings for those who have announced will be in April the first guy, so it is a while to see how things are do the campaigns themselves are going to announce things if they think they're doing. Well, they're really interesting example was kind of Harris who said, you know, that she raised a million and a half dollars the day after she announced, but that just comes from the campaign at self and the other campaigns Warren and some of these other people who have. Announced have not said anything about how much they're raising. So that may indicate that they're not doing as well. But Warren has just a I think something like ten million leftover Senate campaign, which he can roll over. Exactly, and she can do that. And she's you know, but the the other thing that's going to be interesting as sort of the mix of where the money comes from. And whether they are able to get the small donor support, and because all of these candidates so far have said they're going to reject money from corporate PACS, they want to reject the support of super PACS. They really want to rely on small donors when that's going to be an awful lot of candidates competing.

"Joining us is Ken Doyle, Bloomberg government's senior editor for money and politics. So Ken, tell us about the numbers. I mean, two thousand eighteen was a good year for Democrats, obviously in terms of fundraising, and in terms of the election results in the house at least, but it raise a question kind of disconnect between how they did in fundraising and the rhetoric of the campaign where many candidates talked a lot about the dangers of the influence of money in politics as they were raising. All of this money. The Democrats I think responded mainly by saying that they were trying to raise money from small donors, and they did do kind of a record fundraising job with small donors. But at the same time, they were also benefiting from super PACS funded by very large donors, and these so-called dark money groups, including the largest dark money group in the last election was something called majority forward which spent almost fifty million dollars trying to influence the closest Senate races trying to help Democrats win those Senate races and flip control of the Senate. And the the Democrats did not flip control of the Senate. But they did win some of the races that this group was involved in. And we still don't know. And may never know the source of that money where it came from. Whether it came from people that were interested in outcomes issues before congress and and policy outcomes. I think that it's very likely that at least some Democrats in power, you know, people like Senator Schumer do know where that money came from. And why and why was spent and so that's the kind of disconnect between. The the people involved in politics, knowing what's going on and the rest of us not knowing by the way, you know, there's a mirror image of that majority. Four group called one nation that spent a very similar amount of money helping the Republicans hold onto the Senate. And of course, we don't know where that money came from either. Can you reporting on a new study on all this dark money and it? Reported on some percentages on how it all broke down. What how much is Democrats get how much the Democrats got fifty four percent. I mean, the takeaway from the study was that this is the first time that the Democrats have have benefited to this extent from this kind of money. This has been in the past an argument, not only a policy argument by so fifty four percent. What are the Democrats? Thirty one percent went to pro Republican conservative. Teen percent went to grips backing candidates from right? There were some groups that that that's that candidates from both sides like the national association of realtors spent a lot of money and and back some democratic candidates as well. So, but you what you saw this play out in this last election was Democrats saying, well, we've been beaten up by this money in the past, and they have and they have lost a lot of elections over the last most of the decade, and they basically. At least people supporting them. These groups technically, of course, we're independent. It's not the candidates raising the money, but but people on the democratic side said we've got to get in this game. And they did get in the game in a very big way and spent a lot of money helping democratic candidates some of these big money groups. Described the the biggest groups, and you know, what their aim is the ones who contributed the most either side. That's the great. That's the question, isn't it? So you have these you have this group majority forward would spend almost fifty million as I said, that's according to Democratic Senate candidates. You have another group called one nation on the Republican side that spent a similar amount. It was not not all of it was reported to the FCC because it's easy to skirt some of the spending reporting rules for spending and both of the groups. Reported zero dollars contributed the they sent him reports the FCC that report they're spending zero contributions claiming that they received no money for specific political activities and therefore not required to report. So as I say, the key question here, I think for most people is who's providing fifty million dollars is a lot of money who's whose putting that money up. And what do they want for? And and why are they not? So the donors to super PACS, for example are disclosed so you see large donors to super PACS. But we know who those people are and presumably. You know, what their motivation and interests are? But the the groups the people that are giving too dark money groups. For some reason have decided to keep that obscure. And you know, the the supposition sometimes is that that's because they have interests before the government. They don't want people to know who they are because they can influence things easier. If people don't know who they're so can do the Democrats have any legislation planned or introduced to. You have a Major Bill in the house, the top priority HR one which would deal with this issue by increasing disclosure, and this is I mean, this is a consistent policy position that everybody ought to know where the money's coming from. Now, they you know, they also benefit from from dark money. But I think they would argue that, you know, both sides are doing their argument policy wise is that everybody should know where the money's coming from. And that is part of it's an old proposal known as the disclose act that goes back to the two thousand ten citizens United supreme court decision. Democrats argue consistently that there ought to be greater disclosure of where this money is coming from. And they are pushing that in a Bill that is expected to pass the house. I think in the coming weeks, it's bogged down by the shutdown, but it is something that will come up in the house for probably pass the house, but has very little chance of going anywhere in the Senate at this point is that. The Senate majority leader. Senate majority leader, and basically all Republicans in the Senate have taken a consistent kind of policy position of not really wanting to know where the money's coming from. They they believe that. It's okay to have basically anonymously funded funding campaigns. So that's. This will be something that you know, because the Democrats control the house they'll be able to advance it in the house, but it will be probably a stalemated debate. But a debate in the Senate as well at some point. Meantime, I think both parties continue to try to amp up their small donors, small dollar donations. And and I was I was shocked in the last cycle. How much money came from people who are donating what under fifty bucks or something? Know forty fifty dollars made no mainly on the democratic side. One eight online contributions. The Democrats are set up a very strong operation mainly through an organization called blue, which is an online platform where donors can go and just click on a mouse and send money to democratic candidates who need it the most in some of these close races. They did a very. A very good job of doing that raise record them as money and part of their policy proposal that I was just talking about is to even increase that effort by having federal matching funds for small donors. So they they really want to emphasize the small donors, but it's important to recognize that while that discussion is going on in the real world campaigns are still largely funded by big donors by super PACS, and and even dark money groups, and and both sides are doing it. So they. We could get to a world where everything is funded by small contributions. And everything is disclosed. But that is clearly that's far from the world that we're living in right now looking forward to the presidential race talk a little bit back. Kamala Harris, comma, Harris when she announced her presidential bid, just Monday within twenty four hours. She raised one point five million from small donors. Right. And that's I mean, she she put that information out. I think to make the point that she wants to have a small dollar funded campaign. Elizabeth Warren another leading candidate also announced early and as you know. Raising lot of small dollar contributions. So this is I think that's an. An attempt to I guess, you would say put their money where their mouth is in terms of, you know, saying we support this smaller dollar fundraising policy where we're really going to try and do, and it is it's a big difference. I think from the way things played out in in the last presidential campaign where you had a lot of candidates that clearly were candidates high profile people like Jeb Bush, and even Hillary Clinton who delayed announcing their candidacy, and has has they delayed it they were actually especially Bush was helping to raise money for a super Pac that ended up spending one hundred million dollars for his campaign, which is you know, it was very controversial at the time. It's still not clear if it was legal because there's a pending FCC enforcement case, it's never been resolved about that. But we do see a clear distinction. I think with people like Harrison and Warren saying I'm going to raise small dollars. I'm not gonna delay. My announcement. So that I can set up a super Pac there there have been. No presidential super PACS that I am aware of on the democratic side. Setup. So so far it's going to be very interesting to see if that's a position that they can maintain as they get into a race that will cost you upwards of a billion dollars total spent total spending they will be able to maintain that position and have. Superpac. Have a super getting all choked up on this. Water and I didn't bring one in here. Sorry guys play. We just won't let you know. We are awaiting a an interview by our David Westin with come secretary Wilbur Ross on Bloomberg television. We're gonna simulcast simulcast that for you here in just about a minute. I can hang in. Only one minute to go. And just in thirty seconds. What about the other Democrats have announced? That's that's the question. I mean, there haven't been I think Castro announced it's been a couple of other announcements, but there are many many candidates that are talking about the race. And I think are are making this calculation now what you know, when do I announced do I try and set up something before I announce again, so we we gotta jump, but thank you so much. Thank you, Ken Doyle. One reminded that Bloomberg politics policy power. Fuck you by sector spider. ATF's why buy a single stock when you can invest in the entire sector, visit sector Espy DRS dot com or call one eight six six sector ETF. We are now about to go to David Westin interviewing commerce secretary Wilbur Ross. Here's David welcome. From Washington to Bloomberg television and radio secretary of commerce Wilbur Ross on goober television radio. I said semester secretary. Thank you so much for being with us. Appreciate it. Well, thank you for having me on David. So let's start with the government shutdown mister secretary. We're all aware there's eight hundred thousand employees more or less federal police have been going without pay now for over a month over forty thousand of those employee's by my reckoning are your employees at the department congress. Do you have a sense of the sort of imposition? This is placing on the difficulties they have because you're quoted as saying, maybe they can borrow money. You have a sense of you check to see whether they can do that. Well, first of all there are people experience. Hardship. We had a lengthy session with some of the large portion of the workforce yesterday. Trying to make sure we understand what their problems are. And we're trying to do our best to mitigate, and that's why the president pass the legislation guaranteeing that they'll eventually get paid. What a lot of his motivation and proposing a compromise solution to the shutdown yesterday. So we're aware painfully aware that there are hardships inflicted on the individual workers. All I was trying to do is make sure that they're aware that there are possible other things that could help somewhat mitigates their problems. But you understand sir that a number of these employees, your employees throughout the government do not make a lot of money. I mean, they they they can't walk into their local J P Morgan. Chase branch and ask for a loan is a practical thing for them really to borrow money against the promise that the government will be giving them the funds in the future. Well, number of the government, employees credit unions are actually actively making proposals to do just that part of my purpose in what it said this morning was to try to make sure that the workers who are experiencing liquidity crises. No that that may be a source that they could go to so one of the issues, of course, a hardship on these employees. And also, by the way, other vendors and things who sell things in place. Another issue is the security of the country because as I understand it President Trump has really pushed hard for the raw while because he believes it's necessary to keep us safe at the same time. We are not paying a lot of people who would be paying a safe and some of them are calling in sick for. I'm not just talking about air traffic controllers. We actually have a letter now from four d h s heads, and they said in part, we call on our elected leaders to restore the funding necessary to ensure our homeland remain safe and the department's critical national security functions continue.

The measure would overturn the two thousand twelve supreme court ruling in the citizens United case which gave rich Americans and corporations the right to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence U S elections. If approved by the congress and three fourths of the states, the democracy for all measure would be the twenty eighth amendment to the US constitution. Then GU bits, the director of political strategy at American promise an organization working to reverse citizens United. Told Sonali Kolhatkar of the rising up with Sonali show. Why citizens United has got to go really has a rooted the foundational principles of our democracy. When we talk about damage, you know, we're talking about an unlevel. Playing field for average citizens to have an equal voice in our democracy. That's really what the twenty eighth amendment is. All about is an equal playing field in the equal voice for all citizens and all Americans to participate equally in our elections. To the same extent that that right now corporations and large donors and special interests. Do they have an outside influence and who wins elections? And then also they have an outside influence in the type of policy that is being proposed. Once those folks are elected, right? So it has electoral implications. And then it has broad sweeping policy. Implications on many issues that American faces whether it's income inequality or climate change or the tax burden that my kids and my grandkids will inherit from cutting special interest tax breaks to the tune of trillions of dollars. So I mean, this has very broad ranging policy. Implications not just electoral implications, but really how the United States dictates its domestic and foreign policy, so how specifically would the democracy for all amendment address. The what citizens United has enabled? What? Specifically would it do? Yeah. So so in the democracy for all amendment. It's basically broken down into three sections section one secures political equality for all Americans. This means the equal rights of Americans have free speech voting. Equal representation are protected and not giving undue influence with does enough money to fund a super Pac or representation only to those who can afford to play at this billion dollar game, you know, previously. Instead of supreme court decisions have decreed that Americans have no political equality because those with millions of dollars to influence election in policy outcomes have an unfettered free speech rights to do. So since the citizens United decision so that so the the democracy for all amendment clearly distinguishes that that spending money in our elections is not the equivalent to exercising free speech rights in our in our democracy. Know in such an to is is also I think a very powerful section of the amendment because it really does distinguish between natural persons incorporations as we know in citizens United and previous decisions in Buckley. Viva LA in the seventies. We've seen this idea of corporations having the same inalienable constitutional rights as human beings. Do. So section two allows allows us to distinguish between natural persons and an artificial entities. And I think that that will be. When passed will have a very positive impact on on our democratic process and the way our ability to limit corporate influence in our elections in government by limiting the amount of spending that can go in there right now because we've struck down in what citizens United didn't striking down the bipartisan campaign finance reform act. Other otherwise bicker or the McCain Feingold act. There is no constitutional right right now to limit those those campaign expenditures, and so what this amendment does is allow congress in the states to be able to place reasonable limits on on election spending, which which we desperately need in our democracy. And and that's why I think this amendment is so important, and and as we saw was introduced on the first day of congress last Thursday, something this important, taking such prominence in the. First, you know, few hours that congress was in session. So so in essence this amendment asserts that money is not speech corporations are not people, and that we need to have some limits on campaign spending mean those it seems are fairly sensible talking points that you are likely to see a lot of support from most American people across the political spectrum. Right. Absolutely. Absolutely. You know, they they are common sense. And as we've seen over the over the past six to seven years as this movement for twenty eighth amendment has really taken form. This is not a partisan issue. Among voters eighty percent across the board. Whether it's Republicans, independents, Democrats are greens support this type of reform to Linda undue influence of money in our elections as evidenced by polling as well as results from ballot initiatives we saw ballot. Initiatives in Montana and Colorado advocating for a constitutional amendment put to the voters they'd pass both at seventy five percent. Our remind you that Mitt Romney won that state by about ten Montana by about ten points that same time. So you're seeing Republicans Democrats and independents really turn out in large numbers to support this really historic reform. Ben Google, it's the director of political strategy at American promise working to reverse the citizens. United supreme court decision.
