This week we heard House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) signal that President Biden's $3.5-trillion Build Back Better spending bill will have to be trimmed down in order for it to get enough votes to pass both houses. So which programs get prioritized and which get cut from the bill? Jared and FOX News Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram discuss the latest on the spending bill negotiations. Who will control Congress after the 2022 Midterms? Many Americans aren't thinking of the next year's elections yet, but one element that could potentially impact the upcoming midterms is redistricting. Kyle Kondik, Managing Editor, Sabato's Crystal Ball at UVA Center for Politics and author of the new book "The Long Red Thread: How Democratic Dominance Gave Way to Republican Advantage in US House Elections" breaks down what to expect from redistricting and who will benefit from it in the upcoming elections.
The Continental Congress uses 1779 to debate the terms of a peace treaty or compensation for the army. They have difficulty reaching any consensus. At the same time, Congress continues to emit paper Continental dollars which no one wants to accept. The ensuing inflation threatens to bring down the economy and the war effort. ----more---- Upcoming Live Podcast Event! At the grand opening of Liberty & Co.

Tune in to my interview with Congressman Madison Cawthorn. Today on the show, we are tackling some heavy topics, such as the culture war, the southern border, how decisions are really made in Congress, and how Madison galvanizes his soul with all of the hits he takes in today's culture. Madison is the youngest member of the U.S. House at the minimum age of 25 years old. Cawthorn has emerged as one of our most visible figures. His rise is, by any measure, an extraordinary accomplishment as a man who suffered a horrific injury that left him paralyzed. Don't miss this opportunity to listen in, friends.

The United States is facing a moral crisis prompted by rapid increases in cross-border migration and global displacement. For too long, the debate around immigration policy has been framed with false choices that have resulted in political stalemates at a great human cost. Crisis after crisis, Americans are asked to choose between security and unbridled compassion. Is there a better way to safeguard our immigration system while welcoming the stranger? Daniel Garza is the president of the LIBRE Initiative.

On This Episode:REACTION TO DAVE CHAPPELLE'S COMEDY SPECIALChappelle is taking fire from alphabet soup lobby, and he's taking it well. He also spoke important truth in that special about the actual dominant force in the culture. You can often tell who is in charge of any given organization/culture by determining who you are NOT allowed to joke about. Chappelle's special is revealing that truth.YOUNG PEOPLE AND "MAIN CHARACTER ENERGY."I found out there's a phenomenon on social media among the younger set, urging them to be the main character of their lives. The Christian message has a true, liberating, and invigoration response to that message. We're all invited into a much bigger story than our own -- and it's an epic one at that.REGULATING SOCIAL MEDIAI tend to be against any regulation, but these 25 years of social media are giving us information now that might require action. I'll work through the options.AN ECONOMICS DEBATE WITH DEEPER MEANINGI recently listened to two left-of-center folks debate these giant spending bills Congress is considering. One gentleman aptly explained the consequences of spending and taxes on inflation, wage depression, and employment. The other debater basically said, "but sad things are sad, so I want to spend money, so maybe I won't be sad anymore."It's a good lesson in HOW to think instead of WHAT to think.

Victor is a charter member of the Congress for the New Urbanism and has worked for many public agencies, developers, and citizen groups to create appropriate methods of land development regulations.The two main inter-related themes Victor presents in this episode are when planning a community, start first with the “green parts”, the parks, greenways, and parkways and then shape the rest of the city around these accordingly and second, street design is the thing we can least afford to get wrong. It becomes obvious how these two themes are intimately related when we consider that our streets should be traffic-calmed people-oriented places, featuring beautiful tree canopies, frequently referred to as the lungs of the city.And speaking of street design, that happens to be the title of the fabulous book Victor co-wrote along with John Massengale seven years ago and the truly big, breaking news is that Street Design: The Secret to Great Cities and Towns will be coming out as new, completely refreshed second edition in 2022.

Congress approved $47 billion to pay back rent and prevent evictions. NPR explains why so little of that money has made it to the millions of people who need it. The controversy over jokes about transgender people in Dave Chappelle’s Netflix special is reaching a critical point. Bloomberg lays out some key facts. Supply-chain issues are still causing problems for the automobile industry. Car and Driver reveals how the car shortage is so bad that dealers are putting unfinished vehicles on the lot just to fill space. A shredded Banksy painting sold for $25.4 million, a record.

Facebook has once again found itself in the hot seat. Things heated up for the company after a whistleblower shared thousands of pages of Facebook internal documents with The Wall Street Journal and Congress last month. The documents reveal that the company had researched how its apps affect the people who use them—and that Facebook often chooses to put its business interests ahead of the wellbeing of its users. This week on Gadget Lab, we talk with WIRED politics writer Gilad Edelman about the overall impact of the whistleblower's revelations, whether anything will change internally at Facebook, and how plausible it is that even big, sweeping changes to the platform here in the US could fix Facebook's issues overseas. Show Notes: Read The Wall Street Journal's Facebook Files series. Read Gilad's story about the Facebook whistleblower. He also wrote about why Facebook is not too big to moderate. Here's Gilad's story about Section 230 (and also our episode of this show about it). And here's how you can permanently delete your Facebook account. Recommendations: Gilad recommends listening to CDs. Mike recommends the segment from Last Week Tonight about misinformation.

Joe Biden has proposed a landmark $400 billion expansion of funding for home and community-based services (HCBS), the part of Medicaid that funds support services for older adults and people with disabilities living at home rather than in institutions. But with Congress fighting over which of Biden's priorities to cut to appease moderate Democrats, that proposal could be in peril. Mia Ives-Rublee is a longtime disability rights activist who helped organize the Women's March in 2017 and now serves as director of the Disability Justice Initiative at the Center for American Progress. She spoke with Vox's Dylan Matthews about how HCBS works now, and how Democrats' plans for additional funding would change it.

FDA advisors are unanimous in endorsing more COVID-19 vaccine boosters.

And three white men go to trial next week in Georgia in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man who was shot while jogging.
The Port of Los Angeles will now be running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, under a new plan announced by President Biden. Right now his administration is juggling a lot of problems that are weighing down voter confidence in his presidency: supply chain logjams, rising inflation, a slowing job market and gridlock in Congress. The persistent list of problems now 10 months into Biden's first term runs counter to the “return to normal” message he successfully ran on when he beat then-President Trump in 2020. But is the president being proactive, or is he opening himself up to blame for problems plaguing the entire global supply chain that are mostly out of his control? This week, we bring on special guest Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report to talk about what voters want from the economy and the president right now. Some Americans are feeling a lingering sense of unease, as the country continues to face labor and goods shortages tied to the pandemic. Meanwhile, Congressional Democrats still can't come to an agreement to pass Biden's domestic agenda. How does political polarization affect the way voters think about the administration's handling of the economy? We discuss. Next on the show: Redistricting is underway as we head into next year's midterm elections. As was the case 10 years ago, Republicans have an advantage because they control more state legislatures, while some Democratic states, like California, have put redistricting decisions in the hands of independent commissions. But how many seats could Republicans realistically pick up next year through redistricting alone, especially since demographic changes in some major swing states would seem to favor Democrats? A hotly contested gubernatorial election in Virginia next month could give us some clues. Also, what the heck is ‘bacon-mandering'? Then: our panel discusses vaccine mandates and religious exemptions, specifically among Catholics. The Catholic Church's official position is that getting vaccinated is morally permissible, but sincerely held religious beliefs should be honored as a valid basis for exemption. As vaccine mandates become more commonplace, how does society negotiate those tensions? Finally: Why adults need to stop making Halloween sexy, and why the “woke” Fed is really just doing its job.
Washington politicos want to keep the debt going up at breakneck speed forever. But the responsible thing to do is refuse another increase to the debt ceiling and force a partial default. Politicians hate that idea because default would make it harder to spend trillions in deficit spending. Be sure to follow Radio Rothbard at Mises.org/RadioRothbard.
The 42nd president's spokesperson says he is “on the mend.” Back in Washington, the Jan 6 Committee has begun the referral process to hold Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress after he defied the Select Committee's subpoena.

Eugene Daniels, Kimberly Atkins Stohr, Barbara McQuade, Don Calloway, Mark McKinnon and Dr. Vin Gupta all join.

We talk about the latest COVID surge in Wisconsin and update the status of the stalled Build Back Better plan in Congress. Will the new alliance between moderate and progressive Democrats produce generational reform, or will it crash and burn, dooming the Biden presidency? Rebecca Lynch joins us as a guest panelist to take a deep dive into the resurgence of organized labor fighting back across the country against corporate greed and pandemic profterring on the backs of workers. We close by checking in on the election investigation circus train which left the tracks weeks ago, making Wisconsn a national spectacle.
Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen recently testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, telling senators that Facebook and Instagram stoke division, harm children, and avoid transparency and any consequences for their damaging effects. Her testimony amplified calls for regulation of the platforms. On today's episode we consider a variety of proposed reforms, whether they would violate any other laws and whether they would be constitutional. Host Jeffrey Rosen is joined by internet law experts Jeff Kosseff of the United States Naval Academy and Nate Persily of Stanford Law School. They also consider why it is so difficult to regulate the platforms as well as the unintended consequences that may arise if they are regulated, and unpack prior cases on free speech that influenced the overall approach to Internet regulation from its very beginning, including the passage of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Facebook had a very bad week last week. First, Frances Haugen, a former product manager at Facebook assigned to the Civic Integrity group, blew the whistle on her past employer, leaking a cache of internal company documents and testifying in front of Congress that the social media giant is knowingly and repeatedly “paying for its profits with our safety.” Then things got significantly worse when Facebook basically disappeared from the internet for 6 hours on Monday, Oct. 4. This was the biggest outage Facebook had experienced since a 2019 crash that took the site offline for over 24 hours. Facebook has said that last week's outage was unrelated to news about the leaks and that it was the result of a routine software update gone horribly wrong. The outage, however, affected billions of people who depend on the suite of applications and services owned by Facebook that went offline, including Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram.While Facebook is back online and the news cycle has largely moved on, it's important to take a step back and examine what these outages tell us about the precariously assembled infrastructure of our digital world, our global dependence on that infrastructure, and the implications of having that infrastructure controlled by private, incredibly powerful, and voraciously profit-seeking entities like Facebook. In this interview for The Real News podcast, TRNN Editor-in-Chief Maximillian Alvarez speaks with writer, commentator, and legal services attorney Sparky Abraham, who wrote a 2020 article for Current Affairs titled “A Series of Tubes: Reclaiming the Physical Internet.”
Alise, Sami, and Amanda break down the upcoming governor's election in Virginia and push back against calling it a “referendum” on Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress. How can we more constructively frame Biden's challenging few months without being so dramatic? Then, Betches Podcast Director Sean Kilby is back to discuss “Squid Game,” the dark Korean series that's become a global phenomenon. Why does the show resonate so strongly at this particular moment? Who were our favorite games and characters? Finally, they debate the show's closing message and speculate about season 2.

Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen's recent testimony before Congress has set in motion a renewed cycle of outrage over the company's practices—and a renewed round of discussion around what, if anything, Congress should do to rein Facebook in. But how workable are these proposals, really?This week on Arbiters of Truth, our series on the online information ecosystem, Evelyn Douek and Quinta Jurecic spoke with Jeff Kosseff, an associate professor of cybersecurity law at the United States Naval Academy, and the guy that has literally written not just the book on this, but two of them. He is the author of “The Twenty-Six Words That Created the Internet,” a book about Section 230, and he has another book coming out next year about First Amendment protections for anonymous speech, titled “The United States of Anonymous.” So Jeff is very well positioned to evaluate recent suggestions that Facebook should, for example, limit the ability of young people to create what users call Finstas, a second, secret Instagram account for a close circle of friends—or Haugen's suggestion that the government should regulate how Facebook amplifies certain content through its algorithms. Jeff discussed the importance of online anonymity, the danger of skipping past the First Amendment when proposing tech reforms, and why he thinks that Section 230 reform has become unavoidable … even if that reform might not make any legal or policy sense.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/lawfare.

The Biden administration has been contacting state officials and governors telling them to prepare to vaccinate children as young as 5 to 11 next month, expecting an imminent FDA emergency approval of Pfizer's COVID vaccine for young kids.

Democrats are getting ready to make some cuts to their original $3.5-trillion spending package in order to get it passed both houses of Congress after moderate Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) made it clear they would not support the multi-trillion dollar bill. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) joins today to weigh in on the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bill, what needs to be included and if the Biden administration is to blame for the ongoing inflation and labor shortages since he took office nine months ago.

Fall is here, the leaves are changing, Halloween is just a few weeks away, it's been 10 months since domestic terrorists tried to overthrow our government, and now is still a time to stay vigilant. Because while the world was focused on William Shatner and his trip to space, and on Jon Gruden's inexcusable words that got him fired as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, or on Dave Chappelle's new Netflix special, or on the major league baseball playoffs, there was a critical hearing happening in Washington about some of the most dangerous threats to that line that keeps America safe. It was a hearing that some didn't want to happen. They didn't think it was important. They didn't think it was urgent. They didn't think it was necessary. But it was. At 10AM on Oct 13, 2021, 10 months after domestic terrorists attacked our Capitol, the House Committee on Veterans Affairs held a hearing entitled, "Domestic Violent Extremist Groups and the Recruitment of Veterans." Most Americans didn't watch it. But it was damn important. And in this episode, we'll dig into why. It's up to all of us to stay vigilant. Because vigilance is the price of democracy. And one man paying that price is our guest in this episode. Navy Veteran, Navy Reserve Commander, and CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (@IAVA), and one of the most important voices in America: Jeremy Butler (@JeremyButler01). Our host, national security and political analyst and Army veteran Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) takes you behind the scenes for candid conversations with top leaders from all backgrounds. It's a bold and blunt perspective you won't find anywhere else on the media landscape. You can support the show and join our dynamic community of listeners by joining the IA Patreon community.

Nate is out this week, and Francis speaks with defense journalist Jasper Craven (@jaspercraven) about a recent trend: trying to portray the U.S. military as ecologically concerned--call it ‘military greenwashing' if you'd like. And it turns out, it's not really possible when the military doesn't disclose how much fossil fuel it consumes, not even to Congress. Read Jasper's article here: https://thebaffler.com/latest/greenwashing-the-military-industrial-complex-craven Subscribe to Jasper's substack here: https://battleborne.substack.com/ For more on this topic: https://taskandpurpose.com/gear-tech/military-plan-make-earth-friendly-munitions/ For this week's bonus, This week, Nate and Milo discuss the peculiarly British phenomenon of calling for the Army to be deployed domestically--whether it's to quell a social conflict or fix a logistics issue. They love to call for the Army to be sent in. We get to the bottom of what this means, and why people want it.

Margaret Chase Smith was the first woman in U.S history to hold a seat in both houses of Congress. With nearly 40 years in office, Senator Smith's career is marked with incredible achievements, such as being responsible for the U.S moon landing and being the first woman to run for U.S president. Known for her political courage, honesty and integrity, she is a hero of democracy.
