00:04
so yesterday we talked about GM cutting
00:11
15,000 jobs in the wake of a seven-year
00:19
stock buyback frenzy this job cutting is
00:23
supposedly going to save them 6 billion
00:26
dollars a year
00:27
supposedly they over the past 7 years
00:30
have bought back of 14 billion dollars
00:33
worth of stock they have just been on
00:36
the receiving end of hundreds of
00:38
millions of dollars of tax breaks
00:40
annually and they of course also
00:45
continue to have incredibly massive CEO
00:50
salaries all this just seven eight years
00:56
shortly after the US government bailed
01:00
them out saved all of the executive jobs
01:04
as well as other jobs and Fox News is
01:11
starting to get a little bit worried
01:14
here’s Brian Kilmeade with Peter Morey
01:17
ichi am i saying his name right and he
01:21
is he is starting to worry for
01:23
capitalism because it’s it’s showing a
01:27
little too much flesh i think it’s
01:29
probably the way to put this got a huge
01:32
corporate tax cut didn’t they and wasn’t
01:34
the thought was that the american
01:36
industry would start bringing industry
01:39
home because our corporate tax rate was
01:41
now competitive absolutely there’s no
01:44
reason why we shouldn’t be selling cars
01:46
in China that are made here now the
01:48
president has to open up the Chinese
01:50
market and you know I guess that’s the
01:52
next stage but abandoning the American
01:54
worker
01:55
she says that Americans aren’t buying
01:57
sedans do you see Toyota getting out of
01:59
the sedan business they make money on
02:01
sedans they know how to make sedans well
02:03
the problem of MS Berra is she has a
02:06
company that doesn’t make competitive
02:08
sedan wait where’s the part doesn’t he
02:12
go on to say
02:13
um oh here it is okay sorry I got
02:18
confused and so there is Fox News saying
02:23
you know maligning the company but
02:25
here’s the real issue this is on Charles
02:28
Payne and shannon bream here he is
02:32
Fox News is getting a little bit
02:35
concerned here let’s we have this is
02:37
clip number four he’s broke when you
02:41
were sitting here yesterday and all we
02:42
really had was the headline I think as
02:44
the day went on the news sunk in and
02:46
this news is it’s not good for these
02:49
it’s not good last quarter the company
02:53
did thirty five billion dollars in three
02:54
months 77% came from North American
02:57
customers eighty seven percent of
02:59
operating income came from North
03:01
American business so yeah you can build
03:03
out factories all over the world but the
03:05
Americans are keeping you in business
03:07
and you kick them to the curb at the
03:09
first sign it’s really the president’s
03:11
not happy he’s shooting back at Mary but
03:15
but the president told us that the tax
03:17
cuts were gonna make this all magically
03:19
be no problem the GM wasn’t going to
03:22
outsource their thing because of the the
03:25
the taxes are coming home it’s gonna be
03:27
magically no problem I guess it’s just
03:29
going we could do in the opposite I
03:32
meant the opposite
03:35
Mary Barra who by the way happened to be
03:37
at the White House is straight for a
03:39
pre-scheduled meeting with Larry Kudlow
03:41
we don’t really know it was discussed
03:42
there but the president’s fired back
03:44
saying that they should make a better
03:46
car that that he was very tough on GM’s
03:50
borrow over these plant closure
03:52
happening no he shouldn’t be happy of
03:54
course I don’t think any American
03:56
president would be happy about this and
03:58
again it’s not like they’re in dire
03:59
straits now they’re trying to get ahead
04:01
of things they want a big fat cash flow
04:03
but this is why I think capitalism in of
04:05
itself is in a lot of trouble in this
04:07
country because you know these companies
04:09
keep posting record earnings and to keep
04:12
firing people they keep posting record
04:14
earnings and they keep buying back
04:15
billions of dollars of their own stock
04:16
the American public is going to get hip
04:19
to this and my fear is that they’re
04:21
going to end up electing not a
04:23
democratic socialist just a straight-up
04:25
socialist because of the
04:27
kind of shenanigans that’s coming a long
04:29
time number two from your mouth to God’s
04:35
ears money you know how would have
04:37
talked about waterways right exactly
04:39
right on her segments chuckles did wrong
04:42
walk away I would love to see Dave Rubin
04:44
Dave Rubin a react to this clip oh well
04:49
I mean well I enjoy competitions a big
04:51
deal sometimes the government there’s
04:54
competition and competition would start
04:56
kicking in competition I think what he’s
04:57
really saying is that when government
04:59
interferes that paves road to socialism
05:01
no I think like when when Dave Rubin is
05:03
like struck with something like that
05:04
first of all he would be lately over not
05:08
do that analysis no but he would say
05:12
like look everybody has they can do what
05:15
they want this is what a free country is
05:16
about and then he would just ask the
05:20
moving onto topic to I will say this I
05:24
think you know based upon the other day
05:27
I was listening last night I think it
05:29
was maybe I don’t know I was listening
05:30
to Mark Levin who is now taken to
05:34
calling Bernie Sanders a communist
05:36
because and I think that that’s true
05:39
that that notion there like we’re not
05:41
gonna vote for a Democratic Socialist
05:43
we’re gonna vote for a socialist
05:45
socialist I think and and good for that
05:50
dude for just having the wherewithal to
05:52
realize like hey there’s a problem here
05:53
and I think like you’d have to be really
05:55
really oblivious not to notice it that
06:00
they’re gonna have to start they’re
06:02
gonna have to come up with another word
06:06
to demonize the and I don’t think
06:11
communist is gonna work either frankly
06:13
because they’ve been trying like sjw’s
06:15
but they need something specifically
06:17
economic but that that doesn’t hide that
06:19
by the way like communist what are you
06:25
talking about fashion it’s retro retro
06:29
school it’s it’s all like it’s it’s it’s
06:32
the equivalent of like saying that
06:33
Chicago politics but also a pretty big
06:37
stigma around the word communist but
06:38
less and less I would say
06:40
definitely a stigma around the word
06:42
communist but the the vast majority of
06:45
people who react to it as if it’s like
06:47
saying a boogeyman are already going to
06:52
vote for the the right-wing in Canada
06:56
dis is with two quick point I mean this
06:58
was exactly what happened with de Blasio
07:00
who by the way is an insult to the
07:02
Sandinistas but they remember when he
07:04
was first running for mayor they were
07:05
like bill de blasio hung out with the
07:07
Sandinistas for a week in the 80s and it
07:10
was like over 90% of New Yorkers were
07:12
like the Sun the one you mean like he
07:14
was in on a clash recording that’s cool
07:16
not even that like right a handful of
07:17
people who read the New York Post like
07:19
he’s a communist because they’re already
07:20
like brain-dead Upper East Side lunatics
07:23
and we’re gonna vote for me and then
07:24
people like me were like it’s nothing
07:31
that’s what Obama did for me when
07:33
Reverend Wright came out I was like hey
07:38
it’s like the sector of conservative
07:41
publishing that’s trying to really
07:42
really hard to make the anti-semite
07:45
Ilhan Omar stick right based on just BDS
07:47
support and that’s very dynamic
07:50
and I also think like I would love to
07:53
see an actual president would
07:57
immediately nationalize the GM plants
07:59
and let’s get it into the court system
08:00
and see how that works out because
08:02
that’s how you would save those jobs you
08:04
don’t want to do this government’s
08:06
taking it over these are public
08:07
cooperatives now jobs stay we make
08:10
energy efficient cars we support the
08:12
economy screw GM and not either fake
08:15
totalitarian hectoring like Trump or
08:17
like training people for the jobs of the
08:19
future whatever the Third Way scam no it
08:21
seemed that the right is a whole lot
08:23
more optimistic about the chances of
08:25
communism in our lifetime than the left
08:27
so maybe we should cheer up a little bit
08:30
well the very least you know that would
08:31
be a good clip to show you know people
08:33
in Schumer and Pelosi is calm staff like
08:36
you’re so neurotic about a systemic
08:38
critique of capitalism when you get
08:41
asked the question from a young person
08:43
on CNN meanwhile Charles Payne is saying
08:46
this on Fox

William Barr Ordered Fox News To Muzzle Trump Critic On Their Network

According to a new book by CNN’s Brian Stelter, Attorney General William Barr personally told Rupert Murdoch that Judge Andrew Napolitano needed to be silenced on his network because he was being too critical of Donald Trump. Napolitano had previously said that Trump should be impeached (back in 2019) and that was apparently the point at which the Justice Department decided to step in to protect the President from Fox News.
