Justices Blast Texas Abortion Ruling

"All four dissenting judges justices filed opinions. Some scathing against the majority's refusal to block that texas law that virtually bands abortion chief justice. John roberts who joined the court's three liberals wrote quote the statutory scheme before the court is not only unusual but unprecedented end quote justice. Sonia so to my order was much more direct quote saying quote a majority of justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand. She goes on to say it cannot be the case that a state can evade federal judicial scrutiny. By outsourcing the enforcement of unconstitutional laws to its citizenry with us again. I kneel cocktail department of justice veteran and former acting solicitor general during the obama administration. He argued dozens of cases before the united states supreme court. Neil good to see you. Thank you for being with us. We need your clarity on this. What did chief justice john roberts in describing this as unusual and unprecedented the bottom line is the supreme court basically gave a thumbs up to the overruling of roe versus wade so abortion clinics as of yesterday in texas are essentially closed to all patients. And what the court west texas yesterday can be enacted tomorrow in other states in deed will other states Code already Said they're gonna try to enact such legislation and so with the chief justice was referring to was. This is a really weird. Texas scheme outlawed abortion after six weeks effectively. But it said the state isn't gonna enforced instead. It created vigilante justice. Any private citizen could sue anyone.

Winter Storm Leaves Many In Texas Without Power And Water

"Texas is paying the price. But the rest of us. We are learning something about the oil market in this economy from american public media this is marketplace in los angeles. I'm kai ryssdal. It is wednesday today the seventeenth day of february. Good as always to have you along everybody. We talked yesterday. For a bit about the vagaries of the texas energy market which along with the cold and the snow and the ice has left millions of people. Three at least more than that probably. That's millions of course without power and the thing is that even after the weather starts improving eventually the effects of this now three day long crisis are likely to linger and to be felt far beyond the lone star state. That's partly because of how the oil market works or in. Some cases doesn't marketplace adjusted. Ho gets going when the oil supply chain for as it should oil gets pumped out of the ground truck door pipe to a refinery and transformed into products including gasoline diesel and jet fuel. All of these your experience some type of disruption because of the weather. That's matt smith. Director of commodity. Research clipper data which tracks the oil supply chain. He says right now. Oil just isn't getting pumped out of the ground refineries or shutdown and companies aren't exporting barrels. Out of the gulf coast. We're seeing a number that he's different pull such is houston coppola's christie being closed the gulf coast handles roughly half of the country's oil refining capacity. That means the effects of the extreme cold will ripple even further down the supply chain throughout the us says michael weber and energy professor at the university of texas in jet fuel. Atlanta depends on a refinery in east texas which depends on oil production in west texas when it comes to gasoline refineries have a certain amount stored up that trucks can deliver to retail gas stations. For now that's because earlier this month. Gasoline supplies relatively normal levels but energy. Professor tom sang at the university of tulsa says if they're not replenished the question becomes okay along with these refineries to be shut down and how much how many days it supplied is. This actually represents in the meantime prices of oil and gas futures have started rising. Sang says that means all of us could soon start paying more to. I would expect that. Certainly electric bills and natural gas bills are gonna see. Spikes sang says that might be further down the line for the rest of the country.

"More big fan of science fiction right and who's happened and science fiction has is not about the future. It's about the now through different lens. And i get very frustrated with a lot of distance stories. You know the stories that are bout was miserable. The end times it's going to be this So when i look at the world. I see a lot of problems. You see a lot of harshness. Souci lot of this union and and disorder in distress. And and i thought often about the fact we don't have community places to have real exchanges and i've insert myself into those into those conversations. You know where. I don't agree with what they're saying. But i try to find ways sometimes to to sort of say. Hey i here. You're saying book. Let's actually have a dialogue about. Let's let's find some commonality and so far. I've walked away generally unscathed you know. There's there's usually resistance what are you doing. Why bother me but if you approach it the right way you actually find. Maybe not agreement at the dinner. You haven't swayed somebody else over but you've actually found a place to have a conversation and maybe you're nodding your head a little bit about what they're saying and maybe they're actually nodding in return which we don't get otherwise we've lost so many of these and replace them with memes and news feeds and mistakenly think that those actually activate that commonality at first impression of his resume it can be assumed. He's a man driven by list of temporal accomplishments. Yet as he shares of who he is and as we take the chapters of his introduction. It's easy to see the humility that resides within him with the mind that but what's to come thinker. He not only ponders of the world in which we're living but imagines the world where walking into he recalls. Simple moment years ago when i work more directly and in comic books and and i would get invited to stores signings autograph sessions instead of things and i got invited to this one in west texas think it was west texas this texas definitely somewhere texas big place and and you know was all full of myself and went to the store and nobody showed. Nobody like nobody cared. That i was there so i sat there for hours. Stacks of whatever it was assigned except for this one. Kit showed up and young. He had a couple of stories and maybe illustrations he had done. And i had nothing else to do so i just talked to the kid. Most of the day gave him pointers joked with them. This that and the other thing didn't think twice about it. And i had a driver that day because it was so far away west texas. The driver was sitting there that whole time. And we got back in the car at the end of the day and the driver turned to me. And i wasn't thinking about any of this and he said that kid will never forget this day for the rest of his life and as a pretty talking about you know he was making the point the fact i had given that kid attention and encouraged his doing but i had an intended. It wasn't like i was leaning into it but sometimes it's those at those things that maybe are just small gestures. You don't even think about but they they can make a hopefully they do make an impotent and they add up over time as opposed to well. I'm gonna do this big thing and speak programs big. Whenever baby steps and commonality he suggests speaks of how small or large the wakes of even our smallest gestures can radiate asks us to not get so caught up in our own accomplishments disappointments that we don't take time to truly see those around us. Perhaps he is gently challenging us giving us reason to look over the walls of a plausible dystopia future and as he does he releases. Each of us sincerely consider the links that bind us. I think that there's an inherent need for connection. And you owe it to yourself to discover that and if you can do that on your own through introspection or finding a philosophy finding a faith some type of therapy. If that's what's necessary cracked the code on yourself at no matter what point or stage you on your life. Well i'm fifty. whatever. I'm i'm past the point of doing that or i'm twenty. I'll still figure it out on my own home. Take the time to figure it out. You owe it to yourself and it's okay to be selfish in that way being separate is not worth it. Yes he has achieved a degree of success yet. When he speaks of his priorities he mentions no quest for wealth even admits his work is secondary to what he feels most important simply. His role was a loving father as a caring husband as a good friend and as a contributing citizen to this world in which we share so it is as we take a pause to absorb the voice of today's stranger. Now friend dan. My we open our hearts minds and actions pass any barriers. That just might be of our own making back to dan. I would say ask the person next to you. What matters to the most because when you understand that about somebody else you see yourself more clearly and then you. You understand them better. I think if we understand that and the answer is honest if we listen we truly listen. Go beyond the go beyond. I can't understand that now. There are all these factors these burdens that we carry. And it's hard to think about the other and not just within yourself. And i think every one of us can find something relatable and that's what we should aspire to

"West Texas intermediate crude up of one percent day sixty six twenty three branches at seventy four thirty eight up five tenths of one percent. I'm Charlie pelletan. That is a Bloomberg business flash. Thanks, Charlie Amazon topped its own previous record on lobbying in the first quarter outspending Google for the first time in more than a decade and coming closer to winning a controversial ten billion dollar Pentagon cloud contract. Joining us as Sarah Ford and Bloomberg news corporate influence team leader, so Sarah, give us a lineup of the top check lobbyist spending. Yeah. Hi, well, we're watching these discloses very closely. And we've got increases from all the top tech companies Amazon Facebook, Microsoft, IBM oracle. But we're seeing that Amazon is really pulling out in front in all ways. They're spending more there lobbying more agencies in their lobbying on more issues. And are they getting more business from the government for that? Well, the big prize in Washington that they've got their sights set on right now is ten billion dollar cloud services contract that the Pentagon is is rolling out. And there's been a lot of. Activity around that there's a big competition going on an Amazon now is in pole position for that contract along with Microsoft, but oracle and Google and Google Google is no longer the running oracle an IBM who had also been keeping pace on that have been knocked out. So it's going to be really a a contest between Amazon and Microsoft, so did Amazon just get more aggressive. Did it spend money in different ways. You know, approach different groups will we are seeing we've been tracking them with my team which covers really what companies are trying to get done in Washington. And we have been tracking them now for the past year, and they have consistently increased their game. They are getting more aggressive, but it's not only in terms of spending money. It's really in how they're using their influence. So they're learning how to work through lobbying groups, they have pushed aside one trade group that wasn't really aligned with its agenda. They created. Another and we've written about this on our team. And it's it's really quite interesting to pull the veil back on how big powerful companies are getting their job done in Washington. It will speaking of influence. We know the Jeff Bezos is no favorite of President Donald Trump. Is there any sign at all that Amazon might be running into headwinds because of that relationship. Well, they're constantly, of course, looking out for for negative tweets and figuring out how to respond or not respond to them, but this sort of Twitter war between basis and Trump doesn't really seem to have slowed them down in other ways in material ways. I mean, we've seen there they've established their H Q two or establishing their HD two and in northern Virginia right across the river. They've since pulled out of New York. So that's gonna make the Washington presence. All that more important. You know base owns the Washington Post. He's bought a big house in Washington. So. It doesn't seem that he's at all dissuaded from pursuing his agenda here. Sarah, how do the tech companies spending compared to let's say the pharmaceutical companies. Well, that's a very good question. Clearly, a big pharma is kind of the the, you know, experienced professor in the world of Washington lobbying. So they're they're not coming close yet to to sort of topping their overall spend, but they're catching up really quickly in terms of how they're working in Washington and how they're positioning themselves. But but still pharma in farm at the same time is facing new challenges, whereas before they could pretty much dictate their agenda and increase their prices. Now, they are under fire. We've done a separate stories about about what they're facing. You know, they're being forced to pay more of Medicare benefits for seniors. They're being forced to. Be more transparent about how drug prices are actually established. So they are actually having to play a much more defensive game than they've had to in the past years. Have you take a broader look at the tech industry of we've had a democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts calling for a break-up of the largest tech companies. And it seems because of that they're they're getting it from from all sides here is that causing the tech industry in general to boost its its spending on lobbying. Well, absolutely. We are saying they're disclosing more a lobbying around in particular antitrust issues, which were maybe a remote concern in past years. But now these concepts in this sort of anger at tech companies for being big and for using our data and for having more power has now really come to the forefront. So Elizabeth Warren and others antitrust thinkers on on the more progressive side. Of the law are getting a lot of traction, at least in terms of their ideas. So we're not seeing yet that that's translating into actual enforcement action. But certainly there seems to be much more willingness to ask his questions and to push for scrutiny of these issues just about a minute. Here's Sara this is a novice question. But does it depend does does lobbying differ when there are Democrats in control of the house than when the Republicans in control of the house? Well in the past few years, we've certainly seen companies K street and also in house companies tried to be more balanced in terms of the relationships that they have. So it's not just, you know, having your your offices stuff with people of the party that's in power, but really being able to talk to both sides of the aisle, and we did see kind of a reshuffle case J after the Democrats went control of the house in the midterms. And I think the trend is more and more to work with firms that have those. Relationships established without having to scramble each time. There's a shift. All right. Thanks, Sarah that Sarah Ford and Bloomberg news corporate influence team leader coming up on Bloomberg politics, policy, power and law alphabets drone delivery business is cleared for takeoff by the F A. We'll see what that means to us. But first let's.

Like, I mean, comparatively did it look like Harvey. It did. But it it just it meant something different to me. Because when I went to Iowa, it's that's my second home. That's where we spend our summer at that's gonna make all money to survive on for the year. So whenever we got up there in that. We just two different. Yeah. Spraying corn and beans. It was just different been up. There's there's no comparison to to Harvey because you know, at Harvey we were actually being able to to look for people and move Catalan and haul supplies then. Up and they had forty eight hour notice before the levees broke. So they were able to get some of their stuff out. And they knew it was coming. But it's still different flying over fields that you, you know, who own the field, you've you've had dinner in their houses. Why bollards? So you were able to touch base with some of those people to while you were in island. Absolutely. Yeah. We, you know, where we Parker helicopters in the summer. We stay in contact weekly. He started sending us pictures and of semis backed up to their barn. And you know, we had no idea because the media doesn't didn't seem to care enough to show. What was going on up there? We had no earthly idea what was going on. So we called him. So what's going on out where fixed the flood? There's a chance you're gonna break. So they back their trucks in there. And hold everything. They could out we kept in contact with him. And the next day. You know said well, how bad is it? He said, I don't know. We can't get to it. We can't fire grounds to it. We don't know how bad it is the water's deep get there. So we told him about we'll see you the next day. So always out there. And we learned a lot about, you know, their Levy system and how poorly designed their master manuals by the corps of engineers. You know, we learned why failed and. It's actually really sad to see. Why so undercover d- by the media? That's a good question. That's what we wanted to whole time. We were up there. Dustin Johnson, tell me this. I know that you and I have done a story about you guys before in the Lubbock avalanche journal. The west Texas Air Force is Dustin Johnson here with us on the program. It seems like the your frustration has been with governmental oversight. You just mentioned. The core. Engineers. In the mid west. But yet some frustration with governmental oversight in Harvey as well. Right. Absolutely in how so. I just. I don't really know what I answer that without being to route. So well, don't be rude. Just you were there to help. And they're like, I said the most the thing I remember most about the hurricane is having to beg someone. To let someone come in there, and and fix the problem that you know, they've got to worry about somebody other things. So we can just go on there. The Catalin blue. Let's get in there and get the cows move the people move. Let's let's whoever's got a helicopter that can safely. Go get it done. Let's go get it done. And it seemed like female all they want to worry about was passing out a free bottle of water, and they will get to get to where regulation regulation where you don't have this type of helicopter. You can't haul this doctor, you know, you don't have a turbine helicopter. You can't go in there and rescue people. So you know, when it came down to it our final day there.

The first time. It's been several years back. It was actually on Christmas day down in Callahan county on social media. I kept hearing about a lady that was missing. And you know, I finally ended up calling the sheriff and asking him if I can come help. And he didn't really like the idea of it. Company. They so another the DS helicopters have been here.

It wouldn't take long for me to make a couple of phone calls. And in have like we did on the day when we moved cattle had probably fifteen helicopters put together. Yeah.

This is you and your competitors working together. Right every. Yeah. Everyone that everyone that's fighting for the same jobs on a daily basis all came together on the Harvey, Dale and work together. And we were feeling out of each other trucks. And I mean, we were talking to each other on the radio, and it was a I guess that's why it was so. Something I'll never forget because everyone was working together. So well now until about Harvey what what do you recall about it today? I don't know. I guess when I recall actually, one of the more frustrating things in in the hurricane. It was.
