In response to the allegations. Governor Cuomo has released a statement that said that quote To be clear.

And there's a substantial amount of people that think somehow dog poop disappears when it's in the snow i think that's part of it but i also think it to some extent it does disappear when it's your part of the problem. Tim thank god. You don't have a dog does that. That's the kind of mindset that gets our our streets poop strewn well. I also think that this this particular coffee shop has a an annoying clientele or clientele where they'll wait on this line with their dogs there and just watch their dog poop in like make sure that nobody saw the dog. I'm waiting for my coffee. I'm not here to pick up dog poop. That kind of attitude renew said. The shop had an annoying clientele. I just thought well. Obviously if you're saying in there is like i don't know why i say in line you're supposed to if you're a real new yorker you say online. Yeah i was just about the stop. You like inline. yeah. I'm trying to i'm trying to you. Know how Like baseball announcers lose whatever regional dialect If i feel like i need to do that but no we're new. I should be proud of this.

Former top aide details sexual harassment allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo
"It is and what I was saying before. It is kind of a threat thing, But I worked with the guy that every woman referred to his creepy Joe, and he was a perfectly nice guy. But do we all know him? Is he? No, No, no, no, no. This is years ago. Those corporate America years ago. Not not that show. Not the one of the oval. Okay? No, no, no, no, no, not him. He's perfectly lovely. Um But like he would say to me that I had to work with Joe and he would be like he would always comment about all that such a nice dress. You're wearing something like that, But it was just the way that he said it would make me feel like alright, back off. Big guy, You know, like it just was the way, he said it was another co worker. A male co worker could say what? Why you look really necessary, but thank you because it was the way they said it. It's the vibe. It's the total vibe, but I don't know how you fix that vibe. Guys, I don't know. But if you're creepy, your creepy The heavy breathing is kind of a giveaway. Oh, if a woman looks you goes, I think we should take a shower. Now you're probably that guy. So now, of course, Cuomo's AIDS or denying that this happened. They deny the claims because she was very specific when she said she was on that plane in October, 2017 and and who was on who was seated next to her, she wrote, As I said that his press aide was to my right. A state trooper was behind us. Well, Cuomo's press secretary, a woman, by the way, kid. Caitlyn Garrard. Gerard dismissed the allegation, she said in a statement. As we said before Miss Boylan's claims of inappropriate behavior or quite simply false, and she cited flight logs detailing Cuomo's plane trips in October of 2017 and said there was quote no flight, where Lindsay was alone with the governor, a single press aide and a New York state trooper as she claimed in the block post, And she also cited a joint statement from several former aides who shared flights of the governor and Boylan during that period, who denied the That occurred as she described. We were on each of these October flights. This conversation did not happen. Yes. So that's all a lie. That's a complete lie. The statement itself is alive. Why it's provably alive. In fact, Lindsay Boylan, in her statement, never said she was alone with those people on the flight. She never once made that allegation. The Congress. The governor's office is inventing an allegation to knock down this is a strong man, Lindsay Boylan never said she was alone. With the governor, a press aide and in New York state trooper. She never said that there was nobody else on that flight or anything like that. The governor's office releases a statement claiming well, there were more people on that flight, contrary to what she claims in her block. Plus, she never claimed that never for a moment. The only thing she claimed, was that the press aide and the New York State trooper were near her. When the governor suggested that they play strip poker. That's the on Lee thing, she alleged. So even in the defense here we see dishonesty come out of Cuomo's office immediately. Their first instinct is to lie. Yeah, well, this sexual harassment working group, which is an organization formed by seven former New York state legislative employees who witnessed or experienced harassment in the state's political landscape. I have called for an independent investigation enter out into her allegations, and you have Congresswoman Elise Stefanik calling for Cuomo to resign.

And she said, You know, I called for this when these allegations came out in December on December 14th that was one of the first and on Lee elected officials in New York state to call for an investigation.

There was a massive opportunity here because so many companies rely on even when prices doubled or tripled with avian flu salmonella. All of the reasons. Why companies don't wanna use eggs. There's still a massive demand for that and so we knew that it was very sticky product. That was very hard to replace and it was hard to replace because it had properties of nothing else did and those properties came directly from the proteins themselves in so we decided to build out of technology platform.

Not just for the for the san francisco where i live or the new yorkers but really that we can make it that that this product that that people all the special in developing countries have access to and so we knew that we had to crack the code and pushes acknowledged to its limits so although been skilled before pushing biology in terms of how efficiently can we get yeast and microbes to produce.

The Fallout for New York Gov. Cuomo Over Nursing Home Deaths
"Year, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's could press briefings won him a devoted following around the country. It also earned him an Emmy Award. But today the governor who normally uses his time to deliver data and talk about vaccination efforts. Took more than 20 minutes to publicly excoriated State Assembly member who's been critical of him if you attacked my integrity. And my administration's integrity. Am I going to fail to respond? No. No. I'm not gonna do that. W My CI's Glen Hogan is here now to break it down a bit for us. Gwen, you listen to a lot of these press briefings. But today was well pretty strange, even by this year standards, right? Can you tell us what happened and who Governor Cuomo was going after here? That's right. So State Assembly member Ron Kim he is a Democratic lawmaker from Queens. His uncle died of covert 19 in a nursing home last spring, and today the governor accused him without evidence of a pay to play scheme regarding campaign donations from nails. Salon owners. Some of Kim's fellow state lawmakers quickly came to his defense and said quote was attack was clearly an effort to deflect further criticism of his own handling of nursing homes. No grand Kim has been a vocal critic of the governor for a while now, so so why would qualify ring this up now? Well. The governor's anger seems to have started last week after Kim smoke to the New York Post about a call between top Cuomo, Wade, Melissa Derosa and Democratic lawmakers. Now, in a partial transcript released by the governor following the post bombshell, it was revealed that the state withheld nursing or that she admitted that the state had withheld nursing home data to try to slow the potential federal probe into nursing homes. So after that story, Kim says he got an angry call from the governor himself, threatening to quote destroy him. And after that, the governor demanded that he retract his statements to the paper. He then says he got more texts and phone calls from the office here. He is describing the call. Was a 10 minute, one sided, screaming and yelling where I felt threatened that if I didn't act in a certain way to issue a statement, not tomorrow. Tonight, in his own words that there were a tradition. Cuomo's office sent out a statement vehemently denying he threatened. Kim, saying the office has a long hostile relationship with the Assemblyman Kim, like you mentioned has been critical of how the governor handled this four months, particularly his withholding of the true death toll inside nursing homes, and he's also criticized his controversial immunity provision, which was passed in the state budget last year. After big campaign donations from nursing home industries, and that provision basically shields nursing homes from liability for covert 19 deaths early on in the pandemic. Now, some context here. This public attack today on Kim also follows a letter that Kim and several other assembly members signed. Urging other lawmakers to support a bill that would repeal the governor's emergency powers. Can you give us some background on that, right? Right, so these powers they were granted by the legislator last year, the start of the pandemic. But now Kim and several other assembly members are trying to drum up legislative support to revoke these powers. So they sent out a letter yesterday to fellow lawmakers asking for their support, saying the governor had obstructed justice and withholding of nursing home deaths. And that not revoking the emergency powers makes the legislator complicity. Now, some experts who spoke with my colleague Chris Robin's earlier say, even if these emergency powers are revoked, the governor still has broad executive power because of the state's constitution, but also because of his, you know, ongoing state of emergency powers, but If they go through with this and revoke these emergency powers, it's definitely a symbolic political rebuke of the governor and his handling of the pandemic. Yeah, and just to remind listeners to. There's even more context here because all of this has unfolded in the two weeks since New York State attorney general a tissue James released the results of a probe that revealed the actual death toll of coded inside nursing House. Rate, So that kind of started this snowball effect in the last two weeks. She actually didn't have the total number of deaths, But the governor's office had for months and months been withholding that this number. It's the number of people who were in nursing homes but were later sent to hospitals where they died. In other words, the state had only been counting deaths that occurred inside nursing homes themselves. As an expert. I talked to said this New York was the only state in the country that was doing this. So it was only after this report came out that the state finally gave the full number of the deaths of people who had died in hospitals. There was also freedom of information, requests, a lawsuit and eventually a court order. Now that we have the full that led up to the full release of this data. So what We know now is that Cove it killed more than 15,000, New Yorkers who were residents of nursing homes and other long term care facilities, And that number includes nearly 6000 deaths that were not previously counted in nursing home deaths.

If you're around reporters several of whom have now caught the corona virus well, yes, and and trump obviously is. Potentially. An even greater liability to the people around him. If he was holding that under wraps for twenty four hours or something like that. I mean I I just. I don't know I. Don't know it does seem like. The narrative that we got. And I apologize for the tin foil hat coming on the narrative that we got from the beginning it. If I found I'll just say if I found out in six months negative Bob, Woodward's next book or whatever expose. We get that that hope Hicks was a patsy would not be surprised.

I mean he's it the only person capable of traveling. So we will see. What happens we've got a live reaction show here on Wednesday night. I cannot wait to see how this week's news is filtered through that debate I. Imagine we'll see the heroic treatment of trump for Mike. Pence that we've talked about it'll be very interesting to see how Kamala Harris handles us, and when we listen this is the most this is the the most dire.

But should we read into the fact that he had been yesterday and today he was not on oxygen so he has not been on during this his Cova treatment. He's he's not on oxygen right now. that. Did Not sound trustworthy. And it leads to this almost comic episode where minutes later we get a report from an anonymous trump official. The basically contradicts everything Conley just said the anonymous trump official says the president's vitals over the last twenty four hours were very concerning and the next forty eight hours will be critical in terms of care. We're still not on a clear path to a full recovery new guess what that anonymous official turned out to be Mark Meadows. Trump's chief of staff who was sitting there when Conley was giving the earlier press conference. And afterwards, meadows calls over a group of White House reporters and says I want to do something off the record. I WANNA. Tell you this off the record. There was one problem a camera was running. And that footage went up very quickly on twitter and immediately became clear who the previously unnamed source was. So to the question I was asking you about earlier how sick is the president you now have conflicting reports from the president's doctor and the president's chief of staff. Switches not terribly unusual right for the trump administration but man in a situation like this. Yikes. Well, I mean obviously everything comes from the top and and no one should be too surprised to for that but but without even getting to. Accusatory yet. The clip from the present that you played at the top of the show where he said, you know he he he went to school by getting corona virus or. Whatever the real school he closed by saying I'm going to tell you about it later or whatever, which is just you know which you just. Like trump I wanna one. We're GONNA. Do we beautiful new health health insurance plan? We'll tell you about my tax returns will be released as soon as the audit is complete. Yes. I mean it's just like the tone and tenor of A. This is not administration that we should expect more of, but if the administration were interested in reflecting something in in in in seeming like they were being more honest now they have to sound they have to act they have to. Present themselves differently than they have for the past four years because. The expectation for a lot of Americans is that they're going to be dissembling relying the whole way through even the supporters people sit back and slap their knees guffaw the way the trump treats the media times you know and that's That's not. I mean, I don't know if you WANNA say can't do that now. But like it, the lies just seem really really. Just detrimental to our country right now, he can't do that now, but he will do that now and there was no. There was no real suspense that they were not going to level with the American people about his condition I, mean come on Would they pick this one moment even though this is As serious or more serious than anything they've dealt with in the last four years. There's no way they were going to start. Now the chance of that especially since as we would later find out, donald trump was watching the news. And was angry at Mark Meadows who then went on to Fox to praise trump's unbelievable improvement contradicting the on his own message on the day I'm sort of fascinated by like why mark meadows gave that gloomy briefing to the press. I was listening to Maggie Haberman of Peter Baker on the daily today, and they sort of portrayed it. As Mark Meadows thought that information should be out there like thought that there was some sort of bigger duty to the country or the media or American people are all the above to say then But. That was just. I. Guess You know an in and if they they would be in a position to know whether that was the answer but that's sort of floored me right? Did he why did he decide to tell the truth? At that moment was he was he really. So struck by the artifice of that doctors press conference. That he needs to go out and completely contradict what the what the president's personal physician just said. There's there are photos there were photos of him. I did while the doctor speaking kind of just sitting on the sideline with his hands you know and I. I don't know. You know I think we were all sort of exhausted from saying that people in the trump administration needs to be the grownups in the room or whatever I mean. We that was nice. reframe for the first two years of the presidency but. People do seem to be sort of infected by trump. Ns and they get to the trump White House. But but you know attended by the. Oh God now but they do. But you know it's not the idea that Mark Meadows might have a line in the sand or I'm Just. More reaction to one thing that he suppressed for the past year whatever that's it's very feasible. This is a really incredible moment in our country's history and to see a doctor physician of all people to bare just bullshitting. The press and the American public GOT RATION OUT OF Everybody that I know I mean everybody that. So many people that we all writing post online that he got a response out of Mark Meadows. It's not too surprising. Trump responded to Meta's appearance on Fox News I by tweeting. I'm feeling well, and then later posting a rambling four minute video to twitter that included this. We're going to beat this corona virus or whatever you WANNA call it. And we're going to beat it soundly. So many things have happened. If you look at the therapeutics which I'm taking right now some of them and others coming out soon, that are looking like frankly the miracles if you WanNa know the truth miracles people criticize me when I say that we have things happening that look like they're miracles coming down from God. So I just want to tell you that I'm starting to feel good You know over the next period of a few days. I. Guess. That's the real test. So we'll be seeing what happens over those next next couple of days. I JUST WANNA. Be So for for all of the support I've seen. Let us stick with the idea of what trump sees on television because listen to this subsequent emission David from Sean Connolly trump's physician on on. Sunday. When asked why he has Saturday briefing was not accurate. To good question so I was trying to reflect the the the upbeat attitude that the. Team the President of course of illness has had Didn't want to give any any information that might steer the the course of illness in another direction and in doing. So came off that we're trying to hide something wasn't necessarily true. And so have have it. Wasn't necessarily true that we were trying to hide some it might have been true and in fact, it was true. Also didn't you love his phrase and they want to give you any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction. I spent way too long thinking about this. That does choice of words, right? I mean. It practically you would assume that. The idea is you gotta stay upbeat to keep you know patients spirit because that can affect the outcome but..

"Yeah I mean you know? You try to read as much into it as possible in real time. Right I mean the fact that he was walking, you know obviously under his own power spoke volumes but that he was going and and and you know clear sort of lack of enthusiasm, you could read that a million different ways man of stopping to talk to. Journalists was that. Shocking a deal I mean he's tested positive for coronavirus but. He's probably shouldn't be out there talking to anybody you know more than he has to but. Yeah it was. It was there was it was definitely lean. Definitely had a just an odd spector. I. Mean I'm just I'm just so unusual and you also think just in terms of Donald Trump at this point in the White House trying to project strength. It's SORTA raises the obvious question of who is he and they Trying to project strength to. and. The answer is a bunch of people, right? There's anybody in the administration. That would sort of get the idea in their head that maybe trump needs to cede power even temporarily to Mike Pence which presidents have done in the past when they are when they're facing a medical situation, there's other countries. That might look at this and say oh. Wow. The present a United States is going to the hospital right including our adversaries around the world. Then, as you mentioned when you talk about being politically charged issue, there is the matter of voters. You know this is a guy who has run a campaign. Almost centrally based on the idea that Biden was a feeble old man who was not well enough to be president. And now here is Donald Trump walking very slowly to get on a helicopter that's going to take him to the hospital. All those things have to be mixed in there. Right as the White House just desperately tries to project the idea that this now don't worry just an abundance of caution justice small thing. He's okay he's GonNa be fine. We wake up Saturday David with the same question we had Friday. How sick is the president? Well, that day Conley trump's -sition flanked by doctors in white coats gives a press conference in which she says various versions of the president is feeling fine. He also does the Great Hospital Cliche he'd love to go home right now. Just we're we're making him stay. We're making him stay, but he's ready. He's ready to walk out of here right now.

It's really interesting when you listen just thinking about the power of. Of the of the human, voice. Eleanor Roosevelt always said that after his voice changed after he got Pulo, he was a grown man when he contracted polio, but he wasn't Aristocrat, he'd never really been deprived of anything and here he was deprived of his ability to walk, and that you could his voice changing, you could hear his voice that he understood suffering this break mission, will your?

Now you save at Rupert sold to Disney. Because he he knew Fox couldn't rival. Newcomers like net flicks. Is it possible that he also sold because he didn't think his kids were capable of running the whole company without him? I suspect he didn't make a termination. First of all group is mother died injured in three which he thinks this young. He's like chose ICAL. He doesn't see himself Perish time soon and so he thinks he will have a hand overseeing his company for for a long time. I think he has confidence in lock. I mean I must tell you I when I initially interviewed Laughlin. When he was at the Post I did not how smart he was and and I've watched them a make a number of presentations. Since and he's he's not a dope he knows for he seems to be on top of things so I could believe the Murdoch is looking at a son saying I got a stag in here. He can run this after me now is is is. Lachlan is smart is James or Elizabeth. I don't think so but he. He has a really good personality. We spoke before about Rupert's obsession with having his own news network after the Disney deal went through that News Network Fox News. We've been talking about was the biggest piece of the Murdoch Empire that remained in Rupert's possession. Why couldn't he bear to part with Fox News? Know it goes back to what I said about. What gives them the most joy in his empire. It's IT's headline. He loves BEING INVOLVED IN SHAPING WHAT. The public thinks in supporting candidates opposing candidates. He's done that throughout his career. And in if you go back to Australia or England Rupert Murdoch's newspapers have endorsed both conservative candidates and liberal candidates in both countries and they've done the same in this country. Initially he supported. Jimmy Carter a Democrat. That burdock is flexible. I mean he has political convictions but the flexible based on his business interests. So I know We've said how Rupert plans to essentially live forever But if we can for a minute imagine a world say ten years from now where Rupert Murdoch is no longer with us. What do you think his legacy will be? You know I asked him. That question Both in ninety five profile in last November at a conference where he he was being interviewed a at lunch and in the period after the first question. I said Mr Murdoch which legacy how do you want to be remembered? And know he just gave a patter patter of you know for building networks building news billing business and but we're I concluded when I concluded that twenty thousand were profiling nine hundred ninety five. Was that his legacy as a businessman. His legacy is profound. I mean he's been. He's had an amazing impact on the way you do things. And his boldness doing things But his legacy in the news. Business is a dastardly one. I mean you think about for instance. The first television gossip enterprise which is now dominant. You know where you attack people and stuff was something called the current affair. Who is behind Karner Fair? Rupert Murdoch were Fox. News is done to POLA. L. Polarized country is profound and and the new post or is papers. Anger the hacking scandal stuff. He doesn't have a legacy that you you would proudly tell your grandkids you know. Look at the look of the great things that didn't John was. Yeah you could tell. His grandkids at I was successful as a businessman in journalism. You can tell your grandkids that I had a lot of power because journalists. But you can't tell you kids you in the journalism business in new events a professional journalists. You can't say that and that's a mark a black mark. Yeah you know that speaking of legacy that it just occurred to me. Is he involved in philanthropic work? Is there a Murdoch School of journalism anywhere that you know of no? I'm laughing because I mean I've never. I'm not aware of film Samanta interview being something. That is disgusted. The breakfast table in the Murdoch House. I could be wrong. I mean he could be doing stuff While not aware of. I don't want to be unfair to the guy was the ignorant but usually if someone is doing major philanthropic things in their big public figure the way. Barak as you would know it so my last question in this post rupert world. We just discussed which could be ten years from now or fifty depending on how he decides to go Where do you see his kids? Do you see them continuing to be kind of walking on their own paths or do you see them kind of joining forces together. What do you? What do you imagine that would look like? I don't imagine them joining forces together but on the other hand if one of the things that solidifies Murdoch's control over twenty th century Fox and newscorp which to corporations that he's created is what Murdoch is is at the helm people trust him because he has a long lifelong record of success in building things making people money now after of Merlin is gone if the company seems to falter under. Lock on. You could imagine that couple of things might happen. One is shareholders might rebel and say. Hey wait a second. We have to either bring in a new. Co or sell the company. Or You could also imagine that the family members meaning James and analytic and maybe the younger daughters who by then might be you know in their twenties would say. Let's come together and and make this work. I think it's more likely that the former would happen than ladder but who knows and imparts depends on how well twenty first Century Fox and News News Corp is a more endangered enterprise. Because it's it's heavily reliant on on print newspapers and Oppor- Elba Shire's now they have some other investments that are that are reasonably good but the profit margins at at News Corp the newspaper side of the business a very slim compared to twenty th century Fox. So if you look at Morlock for instance. He loves the New York Post. Well he probably since he bought the post in nineteen seventy six. My guests is he's probably lost a couple of billion dollars amount investment but it's a good investment because to give some influence political and business power but will his successors on his board that follows him no longer under the control of this vibrant. Big Personality. Murdoch will they go along? Will they say hey wait a second? Why are we investing? All this money in newspapers will losing a shirt here and newspaper declining all over the world in Australia and England and the US. But let's get out of this and without Murdoch to put his hand up in. Stop the You know. The company might be endangered of having to sell his beloved newspapers. Ken Thank you so much for your time.

One thing that strikes me about all of them are children is that they seem to have this. Yoyo. Relationship With News Corp. Do you see them coming back at any point in the future. I would be surprised James was back. I guess you know my inflammation I have been touched Lisbeth When I profile Moraga time and if you ask me that question back when I profiled her I will say I did not think she will ever become reporter news score for Twenty First Century Fox. That could be changed now. I don't I don't know but publicly you see no evidence of that. I mean she's not part of the company in any way and nor James. Today both of them got an enormous amount of money on the sale to Disney in two billion dollar range. They can do what they want. And they're free they don't have to you know. Elizabeth James Never agreed with don't agree with the Fox News Network does they probably don't agree with with supporting. Donald trump that sets them apart from their father and and brother lock speaking of Elizabeth. You wrote a very candid. Piece on her And Her relationship with her dad and she talked about her feelings about her brother's the family business. How did you get her to open up with you? I mean I've always thought that the key to being a a reasonably decent journalist is a good listener. Be having humility to listen on the assumption that you don't know the answer and so and when you and I. I'm a reasonably agreeable person. I'm not I don't walk around with fire coming out of my eyes and ears when I talk to people I I can reasonably charming and and I like people I mean I generally do and I'm reasonably optimistic person so you meet with someone and again go back to what I said earlier. You know you you carrying the the badge of the New Yorker which is a lot of bad as carry or book that you doing so you. You're doing a long form you're not just ineffective quick hit or quick news source and you essentially saying as someone. I WANNA spend a real large amount of time with you and this is not a single interview. We're talking about many many interviews trying to send you in that first interview you do with at least what I do. In the first interview I usually begin by talking about their jobs and and people talking and and they like talking about themselves into what what the end. What made them who. They are in their parents or role they played and stuff. And you would think is being manipulated by doing this at all. I mean this some the most valuable things you you do it the information you you draw from those early interviews about their lives. I remember for instance when I covered the Microsoft antitrust trial in nineteen ninety and I interviewed the judge Jackson and one of the things to Jackson said to me when we talked about the first. Four hours was about his biography in his life and he told me that when he grew up his father was a civil servant and his father convinced him that it was it was noble to serve in the government so when. I became a young lawyer. I was at a join the Nixon administration and I supported Richard Nixon when he ran for president in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and became one of his lawyers after he was elected in nineteen sixty eight. I thought Watergate happened. And we learned that Nixon Richard Nixon. My President he said lied to. The country lied to me. And he said that was shocking. Big thing for me in in my life that some would lie like that and then you connect that as slanted to the Microsoft trial where you had bill gates the founder and head of Microsoft brilliant man who made a terrible mistake in the way. He handled antitrust trial. He was very arrogant and actually very young. I said did you connect in any way Bill Gates's deposition to or Nixon lie. He said absolutely so what I realized and only could realize it because I had done that biography interview with him earlier that when he saw Bill Gates's deposition he was really looking Richard Nixon and none of the recently concluded. The Microsoft was not telling the truth and was guilty of what they said. They weren't which is antitrust. Violations was because of that debt because of his experience as a young lawyer.

I chuckled when you said Lachlan was his favorite because so many parents get asked. Who's your favorite child? So I love that you definitively said Lachlan is the favorite child. Did you say that? Because he was the one that ended up being put up the helmer. What what gives you that idea that? He's the favourite. I several things relate to that one is Lachlan. Politically is political theaters. On environment or trump or or conservatism is closer to Rupert Son. James's are Elizabeth's who outside the their business second? Lack loan is a very charming guy and he has good personality. He's a much more friendly Hugging Kinda Guy. James is very reserved and Murdoch. Is this markets very murdoch. Has We'll want. It may be at times and he's a key can be a killer in terms of firing people and stuff like that but luckily has charm and his wife has charm not saying that the James has none or his wife has none but not in the same category as Lockwood. And so I think those things is that Lachman is closer to Murdoch's political views a and B Lachlan personality wise has a warmth and the is more appealing to the interesting thing. Elizabeth the daughter is an extraordinary talent and extraordinary personality with great warmth. But there's an argument that some would make that that a woman doesn't make it in the Murdoch Empire but the contradiction to that is a Murdoch has had a number of female executives start with Rebecca Brooks in England today who are very prominently placed in very powerful in the Murdoch Empire. So Rupert always made it clear that he wanted one of his kids to inherit the empire. Why does he care so much for to be just one? Well I think he wants them all in in there but I think his view of management. And it's probably correct. You can have a a triple headed monster running making decisions. You need one decision maker.

"The Department of Homeland Security actually have to administer the global entry program and as it turns out like this is a little bit of a complicated story because DHS is an executive branch agency right so it needs congressional congressional authorization and the Congressional authorization this is this is the pace at which are laws moves. So here's the timeline. Nine eleven two thousand one then. We scrambled to sort of lock the barn door after the horse had gotten out and passed a whole a bunch of restrictions on travel in two thousand and four the House of Representatives passed a bill that eventually would become eight. USC Thirteen sixty five. Be and I don't mean subsection. B I mean they needed to inserted in between thirteen sixty five thirteen sixty five a and thirteen sixty six so they called it one. Three six five be all in the main section heading and that instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security quote shall shall develop a plan to accelerate full implementation of an automated biometric entry and exit. Data system then describes the kind of data to be collected acted says shall include requirement for the collection of biometric exit data for all categories of individuals who are required to provide such data regardless of the port of entry where such categories categories of individuals entered the United States. That's kind of important and then pursuant to that That only took five five years for the Department of Homeland Security to come up with a pilot program and their pilot program was the Global Entry Program so dhs promulgated needed a rule which is in the Federal Register Seventy Four F R five nine nine three two in two thousand nine to pilot what became the Global Entry Tree Program then a mere three years later we decided that we were GonNa roll out that Global Entry Program too. Every airport in the United added states in two thousand twelve. That's seventy seven Federal Register. Five six nine. Oh God all that so you know Oh eight years from law to implementation but You know the the the wheels of administering airports churn slowly I had to do go into into the DMV and get a different ID with my license now is from nine eleven yes one hundred percent. It's all from nine eleven and that and by the way we are not talking the real I D act which is a separate piece of legislation but interacts right so okay because this is not there is no power? It's a it's a really good question. There is no power under the real. I D act for. Da just to do what they're doing because these New York licenses do not qualify for real. I D they say not for federal use on the so it absolutely is beyond the power of the federal government and particularly the Department of Homeland Security regulate which again would be an interesting argument for a pro-federalist conservative judiciary to want to take up to say that you could regulate purely interstate intrastate commerce and and regulations by the the state of New York so as a result of that the rules were codified in the CFR eight cf are two three five. Point twelve describes exactly how the global entry program is to be authorized is to be administered and it says this this is the critical part. sub-section b one says the following individuals who hold a valid machine readable passport a valid machine readable law. US lawful permanent resident card or other appropriate travel documents may apply to participate in global entry. subsection one US citizens US nationals and US lawful permanent residents absent any of the disqualifying factors described in paragraph B. Two and. Then be two sets forth those disqualifying factors right. So it says if you're a citizen and you have a passport you get to apply then what what disqualify unless you're disqualified by what. What disqualifies you an individual is eligible to participate if CB P which is a sub division of Homeland Security at its sole discretion which might lead you to think that okay they can do that? Determines is that the individual. That's the key that's the key phrase and then here are the basic warrants potentia presents a potential risk for terrorism criminality criminality or otherwise is not a low risk traveler. The risk determination will be based in part dependent applicant's ability to demonstrate past compliance with laws which include One one providing false information on the application to arrest records three found in violation of any customs immigration or agriculture regulations for is being investigated by any federal state or local law enforcement agency five is inadmissible to the US under applicable immigration laws. Six is known or or suspected of having been engaged in or aiding terrorism or seven cannot satisfy. CB P of their low risk status or meet other program requirements. So I know that's a lot of legalese. But let's put all that together. What that means is under gigs assisting procedures? CB P in administering the global entry program must evaluate US citizens on an individual by individual basis. They cannot say oh yeah well. You're from New York. So therefore we're not going to consider the application the the the policies and procedures in place the rulemaking making made by the Department of Homeland Security prevents them from doing that and the authorization under the statute. It's why I went through the whole history and and read that particular provision of eight. USC section thirteen sixty five be the the enabling legislation that gave the right to set the rules in the first place requires the collection of data and applicability to all applicants quote regardless of the port of entry where such categories of individuals entered the United States so it is one hundred percent clear that this authorization and this letter is a ultra virus. It is beyond the power of the Department of Homeland Security. Due to the extent that it is considered new rule-making it would not comply with the Administrative Procedure Act and even if it did comply with all that it would violate the constitution. It would violate the equal protection clause us as Lacking a rational basis for all of the reasons that we've set forth so and let me let me layer one more thing on top of of that which is in addition to being patently irrational because the license provided by the State of New York is is not usable as of August twenty twenty in order to get on an airplane in addition to that the office of Inspector General did an an audit of the D H s and the global entry program that concluded in June of Twenty nineteen contained six action items and and see BP agreed to comply with those action items and zero of those action items right in terms of documenting massive failures in the Global Entry System Zero of those action items had to do with illegal aliens getting driver's licenses. I will link the document the show. It's you can search it for yourself control left and look for DMV motor vehicle driver license or any other related term. You will not find it. Other than as a description description of complying agencies in appendix of the Document it absolutely responds to a non existent problem. That is not unique to you. New York work that cannot possibly.
