House votes to avert rail strike, impose deal on unions
"Congress is attempting to head off a national rail strike. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. Members from both parties are pushing for it. Michelle fischbach, Republican of Minnesota. Our country's economy can't handle a strike that reports would say would cost $2 billion a day. Democrat Jim mcgovern of Massachusetts. Commuter rails that carry tens of thousands of people to work each day would no longer run. There will be shortages of nearly every kind of food in our grocery stores. The result, the a's are two 90, the nays are one 37, the joint resolution is passed. The bill would bind rail companies and workers to a deal brokered by the Biden administration in September, but voted down by four of the 12 unions involved, representing roughly 115,000 employees. The unions have threatened to strike if an agreement can't be reached before a December 9th deadline. Democrats aligned with labor have criticized Biden's move to intervene and House speaker Nancy Pelosi responded by adding a second vote, adding 7 days per year of paid sick leave for rail workers, a key issue. That measure passed by a much narrower margin two 21 to two O 7 with Republicans overwhelmingly opposed. It now goes to the Senate and White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre says a bill averting a rail strike needs to reach his death by this weekend. As for that second Bill, he does not support any bill or amendment that will delay getting this bill to his desk by this Saturday. Ben Thomas, Washington.

Hogan to gather with supporters amid White House speculation
"Will he or won't he? Larry Hogan is gathering with supporters amid White House speculation. Maryland's Republican governor Larry Hogan will leave office on January 18th and appears to be considering his political future. Hogan's attending a leadership summit in Annapolis to talk about his record and the future of the country, then he's holding separate casino fundraisers, won a shindig for his nonprofit in America united, and another for his relatively new political action committee called better path forward, which has donated to moderate but unsuccessful Republican candidates in several states. Hogan served 8 years in Maryland where Democrats outnumber the GOP two to one, and he's positioned himself as part of a purple wave and alternative to former president Donald Trump, who has already announced his candidacy for president. Hogan's been a fierce Trump critic, saying in an interview that he lit up state hotlines by suggesting people could drink disinfectants to cure COVID-19, and one saying he'd given up guessing what Trump might do next.

"Widely viewed within the party as the heir apparent to speaker Pelosi. He's 52 years old, lawmaker from Brooklyn. He was unanimously elected along with the democratic whip, Massachusetts representative Catherine Clark in California's Pete Aguilar, who will succeed Jeffries as the caucus chair, Jeffries is well known on the hill as a sharp speaker. He can throw some elbows as a partisan, and he also has good relations with various wings of the party, though at times there have been strains with the progressive wing. Sometimes we can have noisy conversations. At the end of the day, we always come together. The new leadership team replaces speaker Pelosi, majority leader steny Hoyer of Maryland, while another lawmaker in his 80s James Clyburn is planning to move down in the leadership. Hey Mitch, Republicans will retain power in the house, come January. They're going to get power in the house. And there's still some drama over making Kevin McCarthy the next House speaker. What can you tell us about that? Right, McCarthy has still not sewn up those votes to become House speaker. He can only lose a few votes as you know since Republicans will have a slim majority, and he's still trying to get support from the conservative house freedom caucus. He utilized his visit to The White House yet publicly challenged the president's policies on the border, federal spending and other issues, and he's trying to serve notice that Republicans will make their priorities clear as the GOP retakes the house in the coming year. The full house will vote on a new speaker on January 3rd, and it could lead to the first floor fight in close to a hundred years. We also have the house quickly approving legislation to avert a nationwide rail strike. What are the bill's prospects in the Senate? The Senate isn't quite the slam dunk that the house was, and it's still unclear when they will actually vote on this broader legislation, but given the huge economic stakes and the fact that we're only a few weeks from Christmas with concerns about supply chain issues. There's generally a feeling that the Senate will
Elon Musk Vs The Establishment
"Owner, the new owner of Twitter, I did tell you, by the way, that he would wind up owning that company. Did I not the new owner of Twitter is saying the apple is pulling some kind of dicey moves. He said that they are threatening to take Twitter off the App Store and you couple that together with what we saw out of The White House spokesperson this week. And it might make it a little bit nervous because she reiterated a couple of times that they are looking at Twitter because Kareem Jean Pierre said that we'd be watching them very closely in light of the fears about misinformation false information and Elon Musk has been pretty upfront about this. I mean, he was like, you got to be kidding me. Why is the media totally against the idea of free speech? Why do they have to control the narrative? They seem to be very threatened by the likes of somebody like him. And now desantis, whose vying for his spot in 2024 is getting into the picture because now saying that if this in fact is the case, it is something that should merit quote a response from the U.S. Congress. We don't know entirely what Apple is saying about this, but it's concerning enough, only because, again, we saw it happen with other apps like parler. And I think it has happened with gab and some of these, I mean, I don't even know if they were ever even allowed on the platform on the App Store. And that's of some concern, understandably, because, hey, that App Store is kind of important, right? I mean, if you ask me, this is really an antitrust issue, because why is there only really two big app stores, right? One for Android phones, one for Apple phones, out there, and if you're not on these actual platforms as a company, then you don't entirely exist. And that's limiting our free market enterprise that we are.

"It hurts. But the beauty of the two always being together is something that will, it comforts us, it lets us know that they were with their best friends in the whole world. Right now, there are no suspects. And what's more, a local TV station in Boise Idaho tweeted out last night that prosecuting attorney Bill Thompson confirmed one of the victims in the home was, in fact, the target, he also said he's confident they're going to find out who did this and hold them accountable. The White House says the bill to stop a potential railway strike needs to be on the president's desk by the weekend, The White House or the house that is on Wednesday voted to approve a bill to block a potentially crippling rail strike, a separate bill to mandate paid 6 time for rail workers, although he's uncertain if it will pass the Senate. President Biden's student loan forgiveness plan will remain on hold, a federal appeals court has reportedly upheld a ruling that the plan is unconstitutional because the plaintiffs were not able to comment on the plane. Federal law usually requires agencies to seek public comment before implementing new regulations. Biden wants to clear up to $20,000 in student loan debt from billions of Americans, the administration will likely appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court. Democrats announced changes to the contentious safety act in hopes of improving clarity and increasing support WGN's Tom Bradley reports. The safety act has come under fire from Republicans and law enforcement. They point to the provision ending cash bail. Critics have said the law will lead to a purge of jails on January 1st. Well, the amendment filed overnight adds language stating that people already in jail on New Year's Day will become eligible
Biden tells GOP his hopes, gets stiff response from McCarthy
"President Biden says he's hoping both parties can work together on several issues as the GOP prepares to take house control. After the president hosted each party's top two lawmakers, chief Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer came out of The White House enthused. There was goodwill in the room. The president says he'd like both parties to join forces on keeping the government open, helping you crane and avoiding a freight rail strike. And we're going to find other areas of common ground I hope because the American people want us to work together. The top House Republican Kevin McCarthy says they also want something else. I think America likes to check and balance, saying that's why Democrats lost the house. And the man had lined to be its next speaker is serving notice. Come January. I think the administration got a indication is going to be different. Sagar Meghani, Washington.
Trump's Truth Social Admission With Charlie Pierce
"Charlie. So what is a bob cesca rule? Trump always makes things worse for Trump. Yes. He has basically in writing now admitted to this document crime right in an ongoing rant posted through social media he admitted he stole the documents from The White House, concealed them for a year lied to the FBI, his lawyers lied in court documents, then demanded a special master now a special master overseeing a likely prosecution. He said, when will you invade Bill and Hillary's home in search of the 33,000 emails? Oh, God. She deleted blah, blah, blah. When will you invade the other person? He wants them to raid Bill and Hillary's house to find emails that were deleted. Right. Because those are easy to find. Yeah. Yeah, I was going to say that's a sort of a contradiction in there somewhere that I'm going to have puzzle out. Right. Right. But the two important words are I did. Basically said, yes, I stole them.
Ryan Girdusky: The GOP Disenfranchised White College Educated Voters
"I want to begin by asking you to tell us a little bit about what you think happened in the midterms because I know people have sort of been debating this. The last month, you know, what happened, what we can do better next time. And I think that we need to talk about it because that way we can have a better game plan moving forward into 2024 and future elections so that we aren't blindsided again. I think there are a lot of things happen. I don't think there's any singular one lesson to be learned. I think there's multiple lessons. So let's start with the fact that turnout. The media has created this narrative, first of all, there was a quote unquote youthquake that millions of young people angry about abortion came out and voted in masses to elect Democrats. The data so far shows that that didn't happen at all. Didn't happen whatsoever. Republican turnout was actually extremely good in this election. And minority turnout, especially among Democrats, was extremely poor. That's why you're looking at Republicans probably getting over 40% of the Asian vote, somewhere in the high 30s of the Hispanic vote. And the black vote remains basically stagnated about 10%. Where Republicans faltered was among white college educated voters, especially independent voters. They were really disenfranchised with the Republican Party, even though they agree with them on issues like crime and immigration, and they don't approve of Joe Biden's performance in The White House. They were very upset over two big issues one being abortion and the idea of a national abortion ban. And secondly, the narrative over the fact that the 2020 election was so they didn't want to look backwards. They wanted to look forward. And I think that and on top of that, you've had major Republican both candidates and senators like Rick Scott and candidates like masters talking about the idea of privatizing social security, really, really irritated a lot of independent voters. So take us to Arizona, Arizona had a four Republicans win and four Republicans lose. The four who lost ran, it was a Blake Lake of hobby and in that one other guy they ran as a ticket on the 2020 election being stolen. The four who won was Kimberly E Tom Thorne and then two other big Republicans and they won on conservative platform issues. Tom Thorne defeated an incumbent running against CRT running against DEI running against bilingual education. Kimberly Lee Yi is not a moderate Republican. She's very conservative. But their message was looking forward to not backwards and they won. And I think that in states and places where the issues were very quality of life conversations like New York with crime. You serve Republican search and when the election really became about Donald Trump, you saw Republicans lose.

Kanye West and Nick Fuentes Meet With Former President Trump
"So Kanye West visited the president Trump and he brought man named Nick Fuentes. I was not familiar with him prior to this. And my belief has always been that there is a special place in hell, and I believe in hell. For the people who deny the Holocaust. You have to be a particularly vile human being for your contempt for truth. And you're loathing of the Jews. I hesitate to even say that there is no more documented event of which I am aware. Than the Holocaust. You know, when I first heard that there were people who denied it happened I remember a guy called my show and actually said that. Many, many years ago. And I didn't yell at him, all I said was, so I assume that you'll call up a talk show now and say that no slaves were no slavery took place. That, in fact, the blacks came from Africa on cruise ships. He said, no, no, no, I would never say that. Said, why not? That's the same denying slavery is the same as denying the Holocaust. It's so, but it's interesting. They don't deny slavery. So that's why it's clear that it's clear that there's a hatred of Jews. Involved, but the hatred of truth is even more dangerous in some ways than the hatred of Jews. But the hatred of truth always leads to evil. That Kanye West brought this low life is vile creature to the white, not The White House. Tomorrow Lago. Is doesn't speak well for Kanye West. That he even associates with Nick Fuentes gives you an idea of the low level to which he has sunk.
Caller: The Trump Dinner Is Feeding a Pre-Existing Dinner
"Thank you for taking my call. Voted for Trump twice and this dinner is just feeding a preexisting narrative. And the lesson I learned when I was young is that you're judged by the company you keep. And it's just not. But why doesn't that rule apply to Democrats? You know, I wonder how many times Obama had dinner with Jeremiah Wright? Exactly. You're exactly right. It's only one way. I mean, you know all the bad people that went in and out of The White House under Obama and then how about with Biden? I mean, he hangs around with some real, some real whack jobs. Absolutely. And that stuff never sticks to them because the Democrats are backed up by the media. Trump never has been, never will be. Exactly. I agree with you. And that's why we

Trump faulted for dinner with white nationalist, rapper Ye
"Donald Trump's political friends and foes are reacting to his dinner last week with two controversial figures. The rapper, formerly known as Kanye West, and a white nationalist leader. When Donald Trump was president David Friedman was his ambassador to Israel. Friedman tweeted out, quote, to my friend Donald Trump, you are better than this, even a social visit from an anti semite like Kanye West and human scum like Nick Fuentes is unacceptable. West has been dropped by companies like Adidas for recent anti semitic comments. Nick Fuentes is a far right activist who denies the Holocaust and expresses anti semitic and white nationalist rhetoric. Others weighing in, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who called anti semitism a cancer, while The White House issued a statement, bigotry, hate, and anti semitism have absolutely no place in America, including at Mar-a-Lago.

Lord Conrad Black and Sebastian Discuss Former Press Sec. Jen Psaki
"You mentioned, I played you a cut from the current White House, press secretary. She was very, very angry today as Fauci gave his last speech from the podium before he retires. You said, who do you prefer more Jen Psaki or the current incumbent? Well, Jen Psaki was more competent. I mean, this was competent, frankly. But I find her rather an amiable personality where I found Jen Psaki really rather obnoxious. Well, let's talk about Kayleigh McEnany, which is the champion. I thought I thought she was great. Let's talk about the predecessor. Let's talk about Jen Psaki because she's in the news. This is from Fox News dot com. Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that there wasn't a lot Democrats could have done to change the inflation reality. A federal judge ruled Monday that the former White House press secretary must comply with the subpoena and offer a deposition in a lawsuit that claims the Biden administration colluded with big tech to sense a speech. Now, her response and I must read it to you. This is directly from Jen Psaki to the judge, lord black. Sitting for a deposition would be extremely burdensome for me. I understand that I would need to devote several days to preparing for the deposition, as well as attending the deposition itself. And that would be highly disruptive to both my work and my family. My response on social media or black is, well, that's a great excuse that president Trump can use now that there's a special counsel coming off to him. Your response. That's just nonsense. But self indulgence self serving pompous statements. I mean, she knew when she was took that job on that there was going to be a good deal of controversy because her party. And so addicted to stirring up spurious litigation against its opponents, she might reasonably assume that some of it would come back at them. And as press secretary, she might have to testify and give evidence. And the president current president did her the honor of conferring that important position on her. And she had to know that something like that went with the therapy. So what did she talking about? I
Mark Shaw and Eric Discuss the Shady Dealings of the Kennedy Clan
"1960, Joseph Kennedy, the father of JFK, RFK, teddy Kennedy. He had been a bootlegger. He had been involved with dark forces during prohibition, so he has these connections. He wants his son to be elected president. He makes a deal with these old colleagues. And as you just said, basically says, if you help me to get my son elected president, I will leave you alone. Exactly. And so then I had an eyewitness who was right at breakfast where Joe ordered JFK to a point Bobby Kennedy attorney general. And you can just imagine the reaction from those mafioso had helped him get in The White House because Bobby Kennedy during the mcclellan hearings, which were those racketeering Harry earrings years earlier, had gone after all those guys. James hoffa, Carlos Marcello, traffic Conte, all the Mickey Cohen, all of them. So they were alarmed and they should have been because one of the first things in 1961 that Bobby did was go after Marcelo, who was the New Orleans Don worth millions and millions of dollars, racketeering, prostitution, all kinds of things. This is a 100% classic portrayal like out of a movie. You make a deal with the mob and as soon as JFK appoints his brother, which is its own bizarreness, but appoints his brother. Everyone knows his brother RFK hates the mob and is going to go after them. So at that moment, you have big trouble brewing because as far as I know, the mob doesn't like to be double crossed.

Doctor Anthony Fauci is the worst of the fourth branch of government. There has to be a mandate for this new Republican House of Representatives.

Back in March, U.S. president Joe Biden signed an executive order about cryptocurrency, which instructed all relevant government agencies to produce reports about crypto and how to regulate it. The deadline for these reports was earlier this month and last week The White House put together a summary of these reports, as well as their regulatory recommendations. Today, I'm going to explain what The White House's crypto framework says in simple terms and tell you exactly what it could mean for the crypto market. The document I'll be discussing today is titled, quote, fact sheet. White House releases first ever comprehensive framework for responsible development of digital assets. It was published on the 16th of September and I'll leave a link to the full text in the description if you're interested. Now The White House's crypto framework begins with a juicy statistic, and that's that around 16% of Americans hold crypto as part of their personal portfolios. This is a few percentage points shy of the 21% of Americans who have ever held crypto, according to research by NBC News, respect to the HODLers. The authors go on to explain that crypto has the potential to quote reinforce U.S. leadership in the global financial system. However, they caution that these potential benefits come with risks and cite terrors collapse in May as an example, without naming any names. What's odd is the authors claim that terrace collapse caused $600 billion of damage to the crypto market in the months that followed. This is highly debatable, as there were other macro factors that caused the crypto market to go lower, namely, the stock market, which was also crashing around that time. In any case, the authors touch on Biden's executive order about cryptocurrency from back in March and explained that all the relevant agencies have spent 6 months putting together their respective reports. The result is a series of policy recommendations related to 6 areas of focus in the executive order. These are, quote, consumer and investor protection, promoting financial stability, countering illicit finance, U.S. leadership in the global financial system, financial inclusion and responsible innovation. The authors reveal that a total of 9 reports were provided to The White House by U.S. agencies. We summarized one of them last weekend and you can find out what crazy things that report said using the link in the description. Now, the authors also reveal that these 9 reports quote reflect the input and expertise of diverse stakeholders across government industry academia and civil society. Obviously, there are a lot of loaded terms here, and it's certainly begs the question of exactly which personnel they consulted. What's particularly questionable is that these reports focus on, quote, helping cutting edge U.S. firms find footholds in global markets. Now, I'm not sure who needs to hear this, but crypto isn't about private companies establishing global dominance. It's about competition between decentralized developers. Naturally, the authors also single out crypto mining as an area of concern and call for quote common sense efficiency standards. I reckon what counts as common sense depends on who you ask and, as the saying goes, common sense is not that common. If that wasn't spooky enough, the authors say the reports call on the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department to accelerate the development of a Central Bank digital currency or CBDC. They even call for the creation of a quote interagency working group to develop a digital dollar. This is more significant than you think, because it suggests that the Federal Reserve and Treasury Department could eventually become one and the same. In fact, some would say this is inevitable given the trend towards hyper centralization in the financial system. Spooky stuff indeed. Now, the rest of the crypto framework gives a summary of the policy recommendations for the 6 areas of focus I mentioned earlier. You'll recall, I hope that one of these is quote consumer and investor protection, which has been used to justify all kinds of things in recent years. In this case, the authors go straight for the jugular digital assets pose meaningful risks for consumers, investors, and businesses. Not surprisingly, there is absolutely no mention of the rewards that come with greater risks nor the benefits of cryptocurrency. Instead, the authors focus on the negatives, including crypto's volatility and the lack of transparency around cryptocurrency. Interestingly, they cite a study by The Wall Street Journal from 2018, which found that a quarter of cryptocurrency ICOs had transparency issues. That's actually not as bad as I thought. In all seriousness, the authors take it one step too far when they claim

Hello everyone and welcome to the latest episode from the mid week edition of the coin bureau podcast. Every week I pick out two of my favorite videos from coin bureau's YouTube channel to present to you in podcast form. The audio you're about to hear is from those videos I've chosen this week. Many of you have been in touch to ask whether it's possible to listen to our videos in podcast format and so your wish is my command. This week I've selected our videos on weather modification and The White House's efforts to crack down on cryptocurrency. Now every so often we like to go a bit off pieced here at coimbra and look into something removed from crypto. It could be a scandal from the world of traditional finance or as in today's case, some strange goings on that don't get nearly the amount of media coverage they should. Humans have been trying to control the weather for millennia, but it wasn't until the 20th century that we started getting any good at it. It's now thought that many countries around the world are involved in whether modification schemes of some kind, both for benign and possibly nefarious purposes. What's striking is that the technology which has been developed to make this possible is, in many cases, apparently extremely effective. In the first part of today's episode, I look at some of these technologies and tackle the question of why hardly anybody seems to be talking about this. Next up, a look at what's been going on with regards to crypto at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue, Washington, D.C.. You might recall that President Biden issued an executive order about cryptocurrency all the way back in March and the deadline for U.S. agencies to submit their responses to it fell earlier this month. Shortly afterwards, The White House released a summary of these responses as a, quote, comprehensive framework for responsible development of digital assets. This report has important implications for cryptocurrency, which is why we've read and summarized it for you. I hope you enjoy listening to these two pieces and I'll be back talking crypto with Mike very soon, so be sure to stay tuned and if you want even more content from coin bureau, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and visit us on social media
"white house" Discussed on Daybreak Crypto
"Good morning, everyone. Welcome to daybreak crypto. We today are having a bit of a roundtable discussion on The White House's very recent release of their digital asset regulatory framework. This is a report that we've been talking about on our podcast and a lot of people have. It's been widely anticipated for the last 6 months since President Biden really tasked all of his agencies with putting this together getting together since March and he gave everyone basically 6 months to say, take a look at the space and digital assets and from your agency's perspective, tell me what I need to be concerned about. Tell me what are our goals here? What are we trying to accomplish? And give me a report so I can put this all together. And this is really that report. And what it outlines are 6 key priorities that are identified in President Biden's executive order, protecting consumers, promoting access to safe affordable financial services, number three fostering financial stability, number four, advancing responsible innovation number 5 reinforcing global financial leadership and competitiveness and number 6 fighting illicit finance. There's also a piece towards the end that talks about the ongoing task of trying to establish a potential Central Bank digital currency, but this is really there really isn't any hard policy here rather it's more of a framework and that's kind of where things stand. So I want to get you guys take on maybe areas that you were surprised about, maybe just overall impressions, but I'll kick it to you first Swiss, what were some of your first takeaways here? Yeah, first off, when I started reading it, I entered with a pretty cynical view. Just kind of a bias against a lot of what they talk about doing, that the government tends to talk a really positive game. Like, oh, this is going to this regulation we're going to think about is going to really help and going to protect people and save the world. And so I really struggle with that, kind of out to, I guess, just seeing what they've done in the past. But this wasn't so bad. I think there's some good and bad and ugly here. And I guess the good part, the good is that it wasn't that bad. I think the advancing responsible innovation is important that this idea of consulting with the actual companies, the actual thought leaders, the people who know the space that is absolutely needs to be happening instead of just trying to regulate it from a blind eye view. So I think that's good. I think what's bad, well, ugly first.
"white house" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing
"Hey everyone, I'm David challenging, the CNN political director, this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Thursday, August 4th. This is probably bad for former president Trump. I mean, that might be an understatement, as the Department of Justice's latest subpoenas signal that investigators have reached inside Trump's inner circle. Obviously, the select committee on Capitol Hill investigating the events leading up to January 6th, the events of the day itself that insurrection that occurred at the capitol have been very public. It's been the very outward facing part of looking at what occurred at that historic moment and yet what we are learning now is there is as robust an operation that has been largely happening behind the scenes at DoJ that is now creaking into public view. So keep in mind everything that the committee on Capitol Hill has put forth in their public hearings has been obviously quite compelling, a timeline of what occurred, a lot and lots of testimony from Trump aides, not these are not political enemies of Donald Trump in any way, who are stringing together the narrative of what went on between election day and the 6th of January. But what we're seeing happening at a courthouse in Washington, D.C. we are seeing people coming into provide testimony in a Department of Justice, grand jury probe into these very same events, and obviously a criminal probe from the Department of Justice carries far more significant consequences than public congressional hearings, right? The role of Congress may be to make some recommendations or referrals. The role for the prosecutors at the Department of Justice is to bring criminal charges and get convictions. And the latest moves from DoJ could not be more threatening to Donald Trump. Former White House counsel pat cipollone and his former deputy council, Patrick philbin, have both been subpoenaed by the federal grand jury. That's according to sources familiar with the matter. Philbin did not immediately respond to requests for comment. A source familiar with the cipollone matter said that cipollone and his attorneys are now in discussions about an appearance before this federal grand jury, including how to deal with executive privilege issues. Now, both cipollone and philbin spoke to the House select committee and we know through their testimony that has been revealed publicly that they were present for some very chaotic moments in the aftermath of the 2020 election. Cipollone was a top voice among a chorus of Trump aides who testified up at the congressional committee, saying that Trump was repeatedly told that there was no evidence that the election was stolen. And yet, there was a real question in my mind and a real concern, particularly after the attorney general had reached the conclusion that there was a sufficient election fraud to change the outcome of the election. When other people kept suggesting that there was the answer is what is it? And at some point you have to put up or shut up. That was my view. You may recall there has been quite a bit of criticism of DoJ through much of this year when it comes to this matter, whether Democrats on the hill did not believe Merrick Garland was being aggressive enough or even some Republicans like kinzinger and Cheney who were on the January 6th committee who had concerns about the pace of any potential DoJ investigation into all of this. Well, now that we see that Trump's White House counsel and his deputy have been subpoenaed, this DoJ investigation has clearly reached not just inside the west wing. But basically to the door of the Oval Office. I mean, we're talking about very senior people around president Trump. Here's Republican Adam kinzinger, who serves on the January 6th committee with his take on what these developments mean. It shows that this is more than what did John eastman do attorney that basically came up with that crazy scheme to overturn the election. And it probably is a very deep interest in what the president did. We'll see where this goes, but there's no doubt that this investigation has developed further one than where we either knew it was or thought it was a few months ago. Now, attorney general Merrick Garland has repeatedly made clear. No person is above the law in this country. I can't say any more clearly than that. There is nothing in the principles of prosecution in any other factors which prevent us from investigating anyone. Anyone who is criminally responsible for an attempt to undo a democratic election. And that clearly includes former president Trump in the mind of the attorney general. And he's been clear that it is the law and nothing else that will guide his team of prosecutors and investigators through this process. He was pressed today at DoJ by a reporter if a window exists, a window of time to bring about any charges, given the political calendar this fall. This is something I can't comment about. I'm sorry. Now, all of this is happening, of course, as Donald Trump himself is weighing whether or not to announce a third bid for the presidency this fall and whether that should happen before the midterm elections or maybe after the midterm elections, though there's no indication from Garland or anyone else at DoJ that whether or not Donald Trump is a presidential candidate again is going to impact the department's decisions around any charges that may get brought from this grand jury process. And more and more information keeps coming out, whether through the January 6th committee through reporting through court filings, all while the DoJ criminal investigation is proceeding. The latest developments that we've learned about in recent days are dealing with the missing text messages from government phones during that period around the 6th of January of 2021. You may recall the Secret Service has been under heavy criticism after the Department of Homeland securities inspector general told Congress last month that the agency had a race text messages from the time period surrounding January 6th that had been requested by Congress. We're finding out today through an agency memo that DHS will immediately stop wiping mobile devices of high level officials and political appointees without backing them up and will launch a 30 day review of policies and practices for retaining text messages and other electronic messages.

"It doesn't send a message and popular people respect him. You're talking about bring him bringing along also the religious community, the black religious community, and so that was an important move when he did that. Because now it's kind of amazing that enforce your ears, no democratic candidate could have been anti gay marriage. Yeah, yeah, now you can't. Now it would be out of step, you know, very, very out of step. And to be fair to vice President Biden, he was the one that first, I don't know if you remember in 2012, he came out first and supported marriage equality and then Obama did. That's pretty unique for them to have split like that. And Biden is an older Irish Catholic man and he was there. So in 2012, when Barack Obama announced that his position changed or evolved, he cited conversations with Friends, family, coworkers, staff, did you feel like a personal victory? I would assume so, 'cause when I left, like I said, I was out. There was no secret. And when I left The White House to go work in the administration, you do this Oval Office kind of goodbye with the president. You take a picture with the president and your family. And I brought my girlfriend at the time. And he knew I was going to go to move to Chicago to work on the reelection. So he was very respective of it. Very very respective, very supportive. Of our relationships. Everyone who was there, that had a same sex partner. And I think he was always ready. I don't think he was, I don't think he wasn't. I think it's the being out publicly was the step that he took. But he was always in support of us. You're saying with a political calculation. I mean, that's, you know, that's politics, right? That's kind of the name of the game. But, you know, I think he was hoping to move, help move the country with where he was. You know, it's like you kind of have to get the country there or people feeling where get them to educate them and get them to that point. And then he came out publicly. That's fascinating. Now, what the girlfriend you mentioned? Yeah, yeah, yeah. I don't want to move past that because you wrote that you got to work at The White House around 7 a.m.. You didn't leave before 9 p.m. and that if your boss would email you at 2 a.m. you expect a response ASAP. Yeah. That just sounds horrible to me. It's tough. I was tough, surprised you were able to maintain a relationship. Not very well. That's why she's an ex-girlfriend. That's why she's an ex her friend. For many reasons, but that's one of the particular. Yeah, it's hard you work 12 hour days or more, 6, 7 days a week, and there is a task at hand. It is helping to run the country, helping to push the platform of the president and do the people's business. I mean, that is what it calls for, you know? Now you're a mom..

"It's really, I'm so glad you brought that up because I think about that sometimes because I'm like, I'm out. It's not hard to know that I'm out. I talk about my daughter. I talk about my partner in interviews. And it's out there. But I don't lead with that. It's part of my multiple identities. I have multiple identities. And so it's a very interesting kind of way to be in the space. And it's actually kind of funny when people are like, I didn't know you were gay. And I'm like, how do you not know I'm gay? I've been out for a long time. They're like, wow. And so it's funny, but I am aware of it. I am conscious of it. I want to respect all of, like I said, all of the communities that I represent. And were you to bring it up every episode, I would say like, oh my God, she brings it up every day. It was like, what's wrong? What if you don't bring up ever once and even like she didn't even bring it up? Yeah, it's like, yeah, and it's a way I don't know how majority of people feel about it. But I want to lead with my experience and kind of my smarts, right? There's a reason I'm at this table and everything else just compliments me, you know? That's a great point. Yeah. You know, we've mentioned The White House couple of times. Can you just explain for everybody what your role was? Yeah, so that was one of the most amazing opportunities. I will never forget working in The White House for the first black president, you know? I miss those days. Yeah, you know, working in The White House, you felt the responsibility. You felt the weight of the country on your shoulders, the weight of the world. And you wanted to be good at your job and not screw it up because you knew at least for me, I knew that I was a everything that I was doing. I was representing president Barack Obama. If I went out and talked to people in different states or picked up the phone, I was representing Barack Obama. That experience was really wonderful. I worked in The White House office of political affairs. I was the northeast political director and basically what that meant is I managed a politics and about, I think, 11 to 12 states. In the northeast, I had to have my finger on the pulse of what was going on and what people were saying. How people were feeling about the presidency. And if he did specific political events, I have traveled with him and the vice president, sometimes the First Lady, and also any time we have to talk to a governor or a mayor or a political figure in the state, I was the one managing that relationship. And if he were to go into New York or Massachusetts or Pennsylvania, which was one of the states, I was in the room, I was with him. I was doing briefings, and I was briefing him, writing memos. It was just amazing job, amazing, amazing. I was there the first two years, which was I would argue the most hectic years, it was just an amazing experience. So similar to my question about talking about being gay on TV. How open or not were you working in The White House? Oh wow, I was pretty open by then, so we're talking about 2009. Yeah, I was pretty open. I was not. I was out. I even did, it gets better, but The White House gets better video. I was one of the people who produced it. And I was also told my story on tape on video..
"white house" Discussed on Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal
"The baby formula in the U.S.. It's been this way for decades. We've had large manufacturers that have consistently commanded the market space and edged out the competition. Brian dietmeier at the national WIC association says when you only have a few companies that make something, this is one of the risks. You wind up with a situation where one plant closing for the matter of a few weeks has this ripple effect throughout the entire industry. And it's particularly dire with something like baby formula that's a necessity and that doesn't have substitutes. There are many infants that can only tolerate one or maybe two types of formula. Carrie Chan at Columbia business school says some parents can easily switch their babies to any brand of formula that's available, but some can't, they need specific kinds for health reasons. And so when there's a shortage in that area, there's not a possibility to just switch to an alternative. So far, U.S. companies have not been able to ramp up manufacturing quickly enough to meet the need. The formula supply chain is very similar to the supply chain of other products, all of valente at Forrester says there's also another barrier to getting more supply on shelves quickly. In the U.S., we have restrictions on the import of baby formula. The Biden administration says it's taking steps to make it easier to import baby formula from abroad. As one way to help increase supply in the short term. I'm Samantha fields for marketplace. All right, this is a tricky turn to make. Baby formula to cryptocurrencies, but there is a certain level of market dysfunction common to both. You've seen the headline surely. Hundreds of billions of dollars in losses across cryptocurrencies, the collapse of something called Terra USD that's an algorithmic stablecoin that is supposed to be stable, but clearly is not and then coinbase, one of the leading crypto exchanges, revealing an regulatory filing this week that if they go bankrupt, depositors could just lose all the crypto they've got in their coinbase accounts. As marketplace is literally jamali reports from here in Washington, the word people are starting to use more and more is regulation. When it comes to crypto, there is a distinct whiff of I told you so in certain circles, that disclosure by coinbase is only one reason. It struck me that they should have said it a long time ago because it's absolutely true. Timothy massed former head of the commodity futures trading commission says a lot of people learn the hard way this week that coinbase and so much else in crypto isn't regulated by the federal government. This shows how volatile this asset classes, there are essentially no fundamentals. But there is so much to potentially regulate Lee reiners is with duke law. And the question is, which agencies should be given authority? Massive old agency, the CFTC is one possibility, another is the Securities and Exchange Commission, where Hester purse is a commissioner. In an interview with marketplace, she said the SEC has a lot of authority, but hasn't used it to set what she calls rules of the road. At this stage, it would make a lot of sense to spend some of those regulatory resources on thinking about a reasonable framework for crypto. A reasonable framework, not a crackdown, even after this week. You can't just say when something bad happens, we're going to try to shut down the whole thing. Per says until now, her agency has been regulating by enforcing rules that don't exist. When they are made, she says both.

It seems pretty strange that a private foundation would be paying for public servants to work in The White House. But I guess I learned from your reporting that's not completely unusual in this office. People in the office would say that it's chronically underfunded. They only have an annual budget of about $5 million and peanuts in Washington. Yeah, even the founding statute said that they should utilize consultants. And as a result, you know, people from federation of American scientists from universities send fellows to OCP to sort of supplement the work. What's raised ethical flags is that it seems Schmidt futures was using this mechanism that I think was very earnestly created to help supplement the work of places that are underfunded and understaffed. And using it to get his foot in the door. It's such a murky. Set of issues because as you've laid out, it sounds really problematic, but then it also sounds like almost in the charter of The Office that it was set up to be a problematic. Yes, I mean, again, it was a mechanism sort of created with scotch tape, but what's happened is, and what the ethics officials internally flagged is that they felt that Schmidt futures was using this mechanism in an untoward way. The White House told Alex that there was nothing unusual about its ties to Schmidt, and that the ethical issues that were raised were properly handled. In a statement after Alex's story came out, Eric Schmidt foundation said that it had worked with the science office for years to address funding issues, and that there was no undue influence on policy. Do you see this as a story about the Biden administration or one about Eric Schmidt and his desire to influence policy? I think it's much more the latter, but I think it's striking that even as the politics around some of these tech Titans have changed a lot in the last 6 years. I mean, people forget like during the Obama administration, Eric Schmidt's influence didn't raise any eyebrows because tech was no, everybody was like, oh, Google's coming to The White House. That's right. That's right. It was a cool thing. So as the politics have changed, Eric Schmidt's influence within democratic administrations has not. I think what makes this story distinct is that this is a guy with a clear ideology about the future of science policy in America, both on The Pentagon and from The White House's perspective. And so it's beyond just him having influence. The way in which he has endeared himself to powerful Democrats over the last 15 years is distinct from the normal rich person. I think normal rich people have lots of Friends in politics and stuff, but Eric Schmidt has taken a keen interest in solidifying his relationships with the most powerful Democrats in America for the last 12 years.

Some of those actions passed the house. Judiciary committee in june white house officials also are looking closely at the child online protection.

"There's an average an annual average of seven hundred to heat related deaths and nine thousand two hundred thirty five hospitalizations because of heat according to the. Cdc is this not the first time really. Any white house has taken on. We've talked about climate change but to take on heat specifically. This is the first time this has happened right. Yeah because we're seeing a record heat levels across the country. And i think you know you mentioned climate denial. Denial is waning because people are beginning to see what's happening in their own communities in in their own lives but what we need to ramp up is the great ideas on how to address this. We're not going to go back to the preheat days. Climate change is one of those issues. Where once exchange this change so we have to ramp up and really. That's what the president's bill back better agenda really is it's about investing in ourselves again in our communities to keep people safe in healthy so it's not just about investing in heat stress but it it's investing in how we manage afar is better so that they don't light on fire. It's about getting people. The kind of services they need workers to have good paying jobs in protections that the unions provide so you have to have those water breaks. You have to have an ability to have heat stress temperatures out of the in rulemaking so that we can go out in enforce those rules you have to have an ability to actually build back our communities in ways where people can get cleaned transit. They can access yet opportunities for electric vehicle infrastructures which is going to be the path of the future. The resilience plan that this president wants is all about not just building like we used to knowing that the world's changed but looking at how the world's changed in building to those standards relentlessly we know. Un is opening wasim. Biden is talking about global initiatives around cove. And everything else is. Is this heat challenge. Is this something that he's also discussing. Globally with other countries as well he absolutely is because we want to set the standard. That's one of the reasons why we wanted this commitment to come out this week. Is that some Some challenges on climate. We need people that understand. I within their reach to address. We want everybody active. And not thinking. This is such a big planetary problem. It requires all these smart people to gather in new york city one one week year. This is all about how we live. Allies how we invest in our country. These are not sacrifices. These truly investments in our health and wellbeing as well as the security in the future for our kids and so we be afraid to talk about the problems we should be afraid not to because then we won't be moving forward with the kind of initiatives that we all wanna see so.

Going on in congress getting that wrapped up and running forward and we want to show the rest of the world that the us is back that prior administration is no longer in power right now.

"Current with all this information Cecilia at the end of the day. Back to your original analysis that both sides are right and both sides are kind of wrong here the white house and facebook who seems to be more right when we think about the question of facebook. Social media vaccine hesitancy. Well i think the evidence is clear to anyone who has social media that misinformation exists. It's so ubiquitous. Definitely there have been efforts to take it down. I also think michael. It's really important to understand that. This is not just social media that so much misinformation about corona virus. Vaccines are also being spouted across cable television and other media platforms so there's a whole ecosystem to contend with but there's plenty of blame to go around among the social media platforms and i think for facebook which has by far the biggest scale much bigger than twitter. It is a place that rightfully should be a focus because if anybody has the resources to fight this it's a company like facebook with one trillion dollar valuation and eighty five billion dollars in revenue. And that have been fighting this and have experts on staff for years. There's a very familiar ring to everything you just said which is facebook and scale means that it has a responsibility to deal with misinformation. It felt like we had that same conversation. When it came to russia's disinformation campaign in two thousand sixteen using facebook or president trump spreading misinformation on facebook around the two thousand twenty election. And then of course facebook's role in the january six riot at the capital and. I wonder if it's right to see vaccine misinformation as of a piece with those previous episodes or if based on the fact that facebook has changed since two thousand sixteen and is being more proactive. And all the ways you just described that it's possible that history makes facebook an easy target for the white house when it comes to vaccines in a way. That may not be quite fair. I mean this is absolutely part of a pattern that existed at facebook for years. But what's different here. Michael is that kobe nineteen and efforts to end the pandemic through these vaccines have been a absolute priority. Not just for the government but also from within facebook mark zuckerberg has says this is absolutely one of his top priorities and they have stricter rules on kobe. Misinformation than any other pieces of content and the stakes are so high when we've seen facebook struggle with misinformation related to election interference. False news around politics. It's been upsetting for users. It's been frustrating. It's certainly caught the attention of washington lawmakers at our who are very angry at facebook.

How it's spreading and how much it's being engaged with your second That we have recommended a proposed that they create a robust enforcement strategy that bridges. There she pointed to the fact that the white house has had to repeatedly flag misinformation around the corona virus vaccines to facebook and at the company takes too long to respond to this misinformation that spreading so rapidly finally li Have proposed they promote quality information sources in their feet algorithm facebook. She really also focused by gold on the algorithms that allow the company to spread misinformation so rapidly compared to any other media platforms case on that certainly an area that would have an impact so these are fishing as a public call for facebook to do. Better thanks. Everyone thinks everyone. And then the next day president biden just before he got on marine one to camp. David was asked by reporter. Covert this information about what his message to social media companies would be like facebook and the president said they're killing people have is among unvaccinated. Not it was really a stunning statement. And the first time that i have heard the public has heard such a direct line that the administration was trying between these social media platforms and their problems and their challenges when it comes to solving the pandemic right is used to be saying this overall very highly coordinated effort by the white house seems to be saying that companies like facebook in a sense have blood on their hands when it comes to americans being unwilling to take the covert nineteen maxine because of the misinformation that they host it was an extraordinary statement and facebook immediately pushed back in the blog. Post facebook slammed the administration's position. It's perhaps not surprising that facebook is not happy about having that message come out of the white house and they said no. We're absolutely not killing people. And that's unfair. They said in fact we've tried to use our platform to help save lives. We put a ton of effort into putting out authentic incorrect information about corona virus. Vaccines and you the by administration. Facebook was saying are scapegoating us because it looks like you're not gonna meet your vaccine goals and that's not our fault at facebook so stop finger pointing and that's true right. The administration has missed vaccination targets. That's right the administration wanted tickets. Seventy percent of all adults vaccinate.

You'll see this voicemail high lt. My name is lauren. And i'm just really curious about how the president and first lady make requests for meals and fact and groceries and logistics of how all of that works 'cause obviously he's probably not the wouldn't ordering or picking up any of that stuff himself. Well there's actually someone in charge of that and the person who i interviewed named bill. Hamilton was there for decades. he's retired. He's one of the longest serving people to work in the white house and he was the one that was in charge of getting the food for the family. You would go to a supermarket and he wouldn't tell me which one in an unmarked secret service. Dan low so he's going to get bananas he just puts it in a car like anybody else. You never know in washington if you're If you're gonna be grocery shopping with the person bringing food back for the the president and his family. You might have squeezed mellon to test it. That later ended up on the president's plate. Exactly exactly true. It's kinda crazy. It's the seems like kind of a dream that you could have You know you you have this someone going to shop for you. Make this food for you. and then is it all just free if you live in house no and that is a real myth the family. When they're eating alone they have to pay for their own food or when they have guests over like when the kids have friends over they pay for everything and they see that bill President kennedy was like obsessed with the the milk bill for some reason. Jackie with tell the c. Fester were not nearly as rich as you might think you know. Of course they were. Yeah rosalyn carter would ask for leftovers because it's it can be really expensive. So who makes the menu. Then who's deciding what the first family eats while the chef. She's the one who's planning out these meals. It's currently christina. She has been there since two thousand five. She's the first woman. And the first person of asian descent to have this job and then it's the social secretary telling the first lady you know. Here's the menu. Unusually on sunday nights that they get the menu for the rest of the week And they approve it or not And they like things you know. Some first ladies and presidents are really into healthy eating like the clintons hired a chef that was using like very fresh ingredients and then this chef was then fired by george w bush because he wanted peanut butter and honey sandwiches so it just depends on the on the person it's interesting you have these people who you know. They work under george w bush and then obama and then trump. So they have these bosses. I guess who have these totally different. Political philosophies approaches to what america should be and they're able to survive those changes but when it comes to like what somebody likes for a snack. That's what could get you fired. That's true and that's what keeps them up at night is that they work at the pleasure of the president and they can be fired on like a complete women and people have been you know I mean there are some stories that i love that. Aren't that surprising nancy. Reagan getting so angry. That some of her limos you know porcelain eggs were broken and she would screaming about it at the head housekeeper and it was such a big deal that they started to photographs every room so that when they would do a deep clean of the rooms they would be able to point to where everything was so that if anything was at a place they could defend it. Hi i'm digging into a pint of ben and jerry's ice cream right now and it got me thinking about the white house and the number of times that i have a food craving and it's seven eight nine o'clock at night and i don't follow through on that food crazy because of the inconvenience of having to drive to town but then i realized if you lived in the white house can they just get anything whenever they want it so they do have a kitchen upstairs on the second floor if they wanna make something or if they have a craving they can call downstairs to the chef and get whatever they want or. If it's three in the morning they can go and like get a cookie from the kitchen kind of thing and each family has their different you know cravings like hillary clinton loves. This chocolate mocha cake and when she was having a really bad day she would call the pastry chef and ask for the chocolate mocha cake. When when hillary clinton wanted the chocolate mocha cake was everybody's like she asked the cake. Stay out of Yeah they knew. It was a hard day for her when she was asking for that cake. What happens what does everybody do when the president and the first lady are having a fight oh they get out of there.

"Will this. friday next. Time is matching. sit in the back. i felt. that's the world terrifying mentally. I know but i just wanted to say that. I think i think i sort of disagree with into but because i think i think beastie crisis we have to grasp about. It's not a. It's a matter of personal. I called your willpower. I think it is this kind of structural problem. And i think this report sounds great. I mean it's very very it was very jamesy in. It's like Sort of big ideas. You always get overexcited. By these things. I love the ideas of robots and fields picking weeds and completely behind that individual guitar. And i think this is probably the only way to fix the problem. I think we'd be amazed at the effect of their structural. Changes can have. I also think the sort of interesting stuff reading around at the fact that Childhood obesity although it stable thus stability is because increasing in poor children. Bit reducing enrich. Children means that. Evidently we have this evidence. That are the beastie crisis is something is not that inevitable progress through people doing things to reduce it and maybe it'll just take this with big government dimension to fix it is it is crazy is one is the majority of adults and overweight. And sort of three. And tanner obese or something has to these just absolutely you. This is just like unprecedented in human history. And i think the scale of these plans is completely know completely kind of commensurate to problem and it seems india if the government is having a lot of contortions as to where you know it's logical position lies in The nelson he coming libertarian again. Georgia georgia saying he will carefully consider the conclusions and respond with the white paper within six months. Which doesn't feel like they're grasping at too tightly. Generic was very much playing it down this morning Times ready to kathy before your coach policies. Like that and you know you go back to the old libertarian. Leaving people to do what they want. But then also having an argument about face masks and the government was has been telling us about exact house live our lives right down so when we can leave the house and is an isn't a necessary journey and all that sort of thing so this has been willing in the name of public health to take quite an interventionist approach but doesn't seem to want to do on this. Well no because you can see how wildly unpopular these proposals would be very such as society sections of society that always get the net. It reminds me of people giant. Teddy's people snaring a poor families with giant and actually the reason they've got telling because the giant entertainment so you can argue that the reason people go to the chippy and bhai comes of dying booklets fear. Fizzy drinks and give children. chocolate bars. is that because there isn't anything else very nice going on in our lives so it's really hard and this is the people particularly in. The news are new new converts to to boris johnson. It's a very kind of delicate thing. It's all very well to say the middle class way. Everybody should need brown rice and me so and organic eggs but and also of course the question of concrete essence which i think really a really really important to come into it and the idea that anything to do with cookery domestic science feeding yourself is kind of a city side subjects and you know on friday. We make scones and take them home and people need to be children. Need to be taught properly how to how to be able to feed themselves. It's a it's a really kind of basic basic thing. And i think the the shunting they do exist again crescents in schools since about two thousand fourteen but the sun to the something to the side of them for at least one generation was disaster because people literally feed themselves met todd. They've been working. They got home. they want something to eat. That's going to be instantly. Satisfying provide finlander immediately for the craving. And so they ruppees but you can't entirely blame them and you entirely penalized them. You need to be a bit clever about it. But generally i think the recommendations are great but then i would say out because i'm not the people i've just described and i think there's also an interesting point is being made on thompson breakfast. Morning is on the one hand. They want the tax base. The idea is you want the companies to formulate the food that they make all they have to pay the tax and then he's hypothecation the tax would go to support and all that sort of thing but there's a companies we formulate. You don't get any money so there's not totally because what we're seeing with lot. Fizzy drinks is when they brought in the georgia in the sugar tax. Fizzy lots of them did just take the sugar out of their drinks about. I'm boo people. Said it said it entices anyway. Let's not get bogged down in that. Because the last time. I mentioned something somebody sent us. Twix is i only treat myself in half on on a friday jibes lot you but not in the i want to talk about the call you today about how you think. The binds the ties that bind breaking down. Yes i yeah. I do This i guess is another sort of thing. Another problem that i think is the people people talk a lot about loneliness epidemic. And i guess like the epidemic. I think is something. We tend to think of a sort of a personal individual problem but is actually sort of structural problem in society and the basic with my column was that did you ever loading. This epidemic makes us think this sort of thing passing through society but actually i think these amazing statistics about leninists. That were reported last week. But hang on what i think. The number of young people say they have either one of your close friends has tripled in the last decade trust in strangest declining trust and families declining these things. Aren't this sort of isolated phenomenon. That's just seventy arrived. I think quite deeply rooted in the way society's structured in history of society. So just i mean one of the things. I meant in the column which i think is a crucial part of the loneliness. Epidemic is how mobile the population of Of our country and most western countries we take it for granted that will move around for jobs. we'll move. Cities is quite normal in in in the americas all mr rite of passage. That you'll move away. University eighty percent of students in the uk university and moving to new places basically one of the most important.

"Let's talk about our favorite food. And how the government is going to try and take it off of apparently The view from henry dimbleby calling for sugar and salt tax to chine diverse. All into eating better food india. Will this work. How many times have you told a. Is it a problem that we don't know that we shouldn't be eating this stuff. All other forces at work. I think the main force it work in terms of suga certainly sold so i think is more to do with Junk food and ready meals. The problem with sugar is that we associated with rewards and treats and this starts really really early and childhoods. You've been a good boy has souissi and that late one link has made. It's very difficult to break. And i think if we could somehow gets the point where sweet things and puddings and pastries and chocolate bars. Want a form of rewarding ourselves than we would have a much say relationship with them so i think the psychological aspect of it needs to be taken into account because without it you will never gets away from the fact that people have sweet teeth sons. Wade sweet. tea's sweet tooths and that kind of sugar cravings very very hard to kick it. And i think sugar is addictive. It's kind of an addiction sugar so just banning people outright will make it more difficult or more expensive which will of course disproportionately effects for people who are fatter. Generally is is is kind of new three quarters right but then needs to be extra stuff on top and also. This report doesn't mention the very fattening. Effect of refined carbohydrates are wight storage which turns into starts on your body basically terms. What did you think about it because by partly award so if you've if something's gone think my eating habits something's gone well he's sort of avoid yourself with cohen is meal. If something's gone badly you commiserate yourself with some wide in knoxville. If you're very tired then you probably want to do nothing more than just somebody in a nice meal so you could basically for the reason to justify eating badly all the time as baseball it. I think so. Yeah well. I mean actually. My personal diet strachey. If listens times radio interested in that. Maybe not as friday tree day. So friday is my defer filled pastor failures. Much filled pacified as cabinet. I sort of seems to me like fresh pass. You know. I'm obsessed with it. It's like my favorite. And that's your treat on a finer. Yeah it's really filled pastor filthy vice to be. It's really bad while you were in the bath anew.
