Mark Levin Audio Rewind - 9/17/21
On Friday's Mark Levin Show, President Biden has always been an evil man. From what he did to Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, and Tara Reade, to lying about his school records. Now, he's holding back monoclonal antibodies from the state of Florida. These therapeutics were distributed by need, not by equity, but that supply has now been cut by the federal government. The insanity of this man is becoming the insanity of this country. Jen Psaki argued that the supply was rationed because of Florida's lax vaccination standards, despite having a higher vaccination rate than Washington, DC, or Illinois. Gov Ron DeSantis has long been a proponent of vaccines and monoclonal antibody therapeutics and his citizens are being told, by their party-first president, to drop dead. Later, the secretary of Defense has the duty of reporting to the President and offer the best advice. Allowing Gen mark Milley to be a rogue actor is negligent and it's never routine to do it after a conversation with Speaker Pelosi which gives the patina of a soft coup. It was confirmed by Gen. McKenzie that Biden's drone strike did in fact kill as many as 10 civilians including up to seven children, not an ISIS-K militant. Afterward, Rep. Chip Roy calls in to explain the severity of the situation at the Texas-Mexico border. Roy cited increases in child trafficking and drug smuggling which affects the entire country and has called for Biden's impeachment for abdicating his Constitutional responsibility. Roy added that Texans will also suffer because of Biden's creation of a rationing problem that didn't even exist. HHS refused to respond to whether there was a shortage of treatments or not.

Economics Needs to Reckon With What It Doesn’t Know
“The world discovered that John Maynard Keynes was right when he declared during World War II that ‘anything we can actually do, we can afford,’” writes Adam Tooze. “Budget constraints don’t seem to exist; money is a mere technicality. The hard limits of financial sustainability, policed, we used to think, by ferocious bond markets, were blurred by the 2008 financial crisis. In 2020, they were erased.” Tooze is an economic historian at Columbia University, co-hosts the podcast “Ones and Tooze,” writes the brilliant Chartbook blog and is the author of “Crashed,” the single best history of the 2008 financial crisis. He’s now out with a new book, “Shutdown: How Covid Shook the World’s Economy,” which tells the story of the unprecedented global economic response to the pandemic. The central thread of Tooze’s work is how the past decade of crises has upended many of the core assumptions that have guided economic policymaking for the past 50 years — including ones that many contemporary economists and policymakers continue to cling to. So that’s what we mainly talk about here. But we also discuss how the boundaries of acceptable thought in the economics profession are policed, the actual risk of runaway inflation, the limits of green monetary policy, the fight over Jerome Powell’s reappointment as Fed chair, what the Covid crisis reveals about our ability to respond to the climate crisis, the need for a supply-side progressivism and more.
