2:30 pm
boy, scotty, a mexican judge has issued 7 arrest warrants in relation to a decade old cross border gun trafficking thing, including the country's most notorious drug lord, in an ex security minister, convicted sinaloa cartel bus. what keen l. chapo guzman, ex security minister, had nora garcia, luna, and former federal police intelligence official louis cardenas, are among those named in a statement released sunday from the attorney general's office. this stemming from the so called fast and furious gun running scandal from 2009 to 2011 in which u. s. federal officials allowed about 2000 guns to be traffic in new mexico. the goal to track those guns as they were transferred to higher level traffickers in key figures in mexican cartels, with the expectation that it would lead to their arrest. and therefore, the demise of the cartels. all 3 are currently behind bars and neither the united states or mexico. the attorney general's office has not yet clarified whether it will seek to extrude i guzman, who is currently serving a life sentence in
2:31 pm
u. s. federal prison guzman has twice escaped high security prisons in mexico. the statement did note the mexican judges have requested to extradite garcia, luna, the former security minister who is charged by us authorities with drug trafficking in 2019. he now faces to arrest warrants. the one secret operation did not come without controversy, and some of the weapons were later blamed for gang related crime sprees in mexico, causing cross border tension. the statement adding, we have been informed that us authorities have been charged with investigating, and holding responsible public officials in that country without going into further detail. i've got the operation came to light when to the gun views as part of that fast in various operation were found at the scene of a shoot out in which us border patrol agent brian terry was killed in 2010. got it . okay, so i wanna continue this discussion with our panel and robert patillo talk radio host. and so right attorney and ned ryan, who is the ceo of america majority and for presidential writer for george
2:32 pm
w bush. thanks for joining me gentlemen. got it. okay, so this is interesting. i had a blast from the past. you know, when i 1st saw the how, like, fast and furious, is there another movie coming out? no, we're going back to the original obama scandal i believe. so i want to start with you on this one, ned. get right, come and go. robert. different. do you really fast and furious or anything, but just a political weapon to the republicans used to dry and damage? president obama, of course, is just a political weapon unless understand that isn't based directly off of the operation why receiver, which is a bush bush era policy, which took place in 2006 gun walking is a common practice use an inner city in gain crime cases, you put the guns out there, they worked their way up the uh, the food chain to the guys at the top of the letter. and then you can arrest those people. did the policy not go as intended, of course, but it's been used by both parties. both republicans and democrats and republicans continue to bring this up to cover up for the fact they don't have any really policies that they are running on in 2022. and the deflect from the scandals that
2:33 pm
are coming out every day regarding the g o. p. they're evolving the insurrection. and when the other things have happened, the result in losing the last lesson. so, just to attempt to bring back a blast to pass, they have nothing else to run on. that what this is net is this only coming up, and frankly, it's coming from a mexican judge, not even a us, or the mexicans are the ones looking for accountability. but is that what this is all about? the reason why it's coming back to light now? no, i don't think it has anything to do with republicans. in fact, i would assure you scotty, fast and furious is probably not been discussed in most republican circles for years. although i will say this, i mean, 1st of all, there's plenty of us. plenty of things for us to run on 2022. and there's a lot of things that i think will be working to republicans advantage. we don't need fast and furious to have great success this fall. but i think going back to the fast and furious incidence, i think the thing that i think you can find agreement across party lines is i want
2:34 pm
to start to have accountability for some of these bureaucrats to do these things. that obviously was a wild failure, on fact a lost track of most of those 2000 and some guns. why is there no accountability for these bureaucrats? and for these people that have done these things go, i don't think actually ever come across then republicans who would agree there have to be consequences for people that do these things. and unless we have consequences, they're going to continue to do stupid things in the future. well, and we talk and robert write up where they this is common practice. my republican democrats usually in the inner cities, dropped the guns and find out who the who the boss is. but this cross international lines, and i really feel like there was not much accountability of the conversations between mexico and the united states. and so net, do you remember ever, any closure on this situation before? and like you said, there was no accountability, but doesn't that mean the republicans dropped the ball on asking for considering it was all under the obama administration?
2:35 pm
well, i feel like republicans in dc, drop the ball all the time on a whole host of issues. scotty. so it'll get me started on that, but i do think it is one of those things where somebody clearly had an idea that they wanted to pursue was the absolute failure. and again, in the private sector, there's always consequences for failure. yet in the government we just continue all the people just continue on and they fail upwards is one of the things we say in d. c all the time that people just continue to fail upwards. and until we started to add that accountability, we'll see more of this now. i don't think it was. it's not something that i think is going to be actually a big topic this year. in fact, was really surprised that it was even a topic guy right now. well, and that's what that, that's why i'm talking about it because it's not americans, it's not american to judge the system. america holding our country accountable for giving the guns. it's the mexican government, the mexican judicial system. the thing this isn't right. these guns were illegally
2:36 pm
brought in here to kill people. we're going to hold our country accountable, even if the united states chose is not to do it for political reasons. robert, i know you think this is just a republican throwing it, but you do have to point out it, what does it say of mexico who we have? no one says has the most most holding accountable government right now, especially on this hemisphere. they're willing to hold people accountable for this and the u. s. is doing nothing. like you said, this is just a political thing being brought up, but i don't think it is. i think it says something about where did the guys come from and who, what exactly are people doing with them? this is a government take the same login, accountability and interest in ensuring that we have don't have these waves or migrant, went to the us border. how will they take this same energy of the young people like to say and put that towards stop in the flow of guns across the mexican borders into the united states, into inner city. i won't stop in the full hair when fentenol cocaine and methamphetamines many, the other groups are coming across as something that can board this much authority
2:37 pm
to deflect from their own failures and corruptions. will become a narco state by their very measure. i would think that this is just an attempt to take attention away from that and try to push it off on to the us where the own failures of their, of their fails date hold on for one second. i thought that that was ned speaking there because i think that is one thing across the board. all agree on me right, exactly. now, i totally agree with what robert just said. in fact, they're trying to see the next kids are trying to sue the, the gun manufacturers all attempt to distract from their utter and complete failure with corruption and drug violence. and in fact, i would tell them, you know, what, what you actually turn your focus inward and try and bring some, some closer to the corruption and all the problems that you have instead of pursuing these things. that's just a distraction. well, it's a distraction, right? once again, you start with accountability now or also just be repeated again. ned, robert, always good to talk to you about it is no secret. google has taken over most everything in our lives. now the search engine has a very obvious monopoly in its industry. losers,
2:38 pm
competitors say not so fast. we are joined by investigative journalist and blue bus colors based one after the break to discuss the lights lawsuit against the big tech company, the. ah ah
2:39 pm
ah, well driven by dreamers shaped by 10 percent of those with dares sinks. we dare to ask in you know, everybody is concerned about the point being upon his game, but in fact, that's the only thing out there. there's not a montes game, it's an open source project. they'll buy volunteers kind of policy. but there are a lot of policies out there july,
2:40 pm
an annual festival in st. petersburg dedicated to dust. i epsky, a great writer, thinker and psychologist. people often turned to his work to understand russia and russians, perhaps even themselves. they put a single movie, say, put, they brought the vehicle in the body beneath that changing reader, foaming them as they read that does die. estes, unique ability to stay ascii wants to tell us you can better yourself, makes you face your true self. or we could move beyond conventions, rules of schemes, beyond boundaries. and time. does de ascii is a global brand whose classics, as everyone knows, i'm never out of stuff. i can
2:41 pm
imagine nancy pelosi is stepping up her coffee, 19 restrictions and policies for the house floor. now the new rules include lengthening voting times while limiting the number of votes that actually happen on the floor. k 95 or k n. $95.00 mask will actually be required on the floor and taxpayers will now be stuck with providing a 40 k 90 by mass per office per month now. and we did some quick grab for you that $17400.00 mask per month, which honestly has a nice purchase order for some company, which will probably give a government rate. and if it's like anything else, a government pays for. it's gonna be higher than $3.00 cost, but all of those taxpayer dollars in the cost of these mask will we get what we pay for. will they be sure to keep house members from catching cove? it? well, according to statistics, a 104 representatives and senators have actually tested positive for coven 19. and
2:42 pm
with a blue and red states having us representatives a falling sick, a sense of march 2020. now of them 100 percent of those elected as democrats or vaccinated. and even though we don't have the exact percentage of vaccinate republicans, can we actually blame the high number of positive cases in the house on the lack of mass being worn? well, not exactly. first off speaker plus, he actually implemented a match mandate, pretty much from the very beginning of the pandemic. and to as demonstrated by the latest member of congress to announce a positive coven test. house members like represent alexandria, cortez donnelly's where their math and the state has yet to even follow such restrictions. but guess what? this is a new week. so discuss, i want to bring back in our friend robert patel and dr. omar. hm. odda, a practicing physician and a retired lieutenant colonel from the u. s. army special for his. thanks for joining me. both. scotty. scotty. okay, doctor, i'm at i,
2:43 pm
i wanna start with you and i understand the science. but let me just kind of work through this here. why does speaker policy now feel these new roles will help the spread of cov, in congress, more than what is already been on the books and by those numbers aren't really working. i mean, if these cloth mask has been worthless, this whole time, has the american public and congress just wasted the last 2 years wearing them? well, you know, scary. we've been saying they're worthless since the very beginning. but the problem is that people are reacting non scientifically to fear and political limitation of the sole issue. it's not like this, alma cranberry has changed. the confirmation of the crone of virus at all is changed to certain part of it. good. the virus is still the same size and it's still the same shape. it's not like mass just stopped working, never have work. they did help some transmission from a sick person to a well person, but they don't really help from if you're well to help prevent you getting it. so i
2:44 pm
don't think these new rules are really going to do anything. one thing that i've been predicting and i stand by it is this, i'm a con, barrier being so transmissible and infectious is actually a lot less serious of it provides a lot less serious disease. so that could be the answer to that. and that make providing natural immunity in house and hurting yesterday. and i have to ask you, doctor, because as we're looking around, as the cases that are coming up, people are past in positive not only for on a virus or coven, but also the flu, or it's partnered with strep. they're not there now. and we're even finding that kids that are in the hospital right now. they're not going in for co, but they're going in for something else and testing positive. is there something more likely with this omicron barrier that attaches itself to other viruses that were known for getting here in the spring and the winter? doctor? not necessarily saying it it's, it's general such a mild that it's in general such
2:45 pm
a mild virus, causing any severe disease, really just upper respiratory without going down the lines. but what we're seeing is more flu is this season goes along. so i think they're just sort of cohabitate as you can. i guess they're multitasking, they have multitasking tasking bugs and not a good thing. robert, obviously politics is going to roll into this. and they're republicans like marjorie taylor green, who have actually already racked up tens of thousands of dollars and find saying a, she's not gonna change your mind with this new batch. this actually helps her with their bay thing. look at how much this government rules are overreaching. do the government really? did the democrats going into 2020 because everything is now going to be out of politics and timing. do they really want to give the country, especially following pictures of members during the holiday being masked, less and parting? did that me? did. they want to give the rest of the country that they really want more government involvement in people's lives and restrictions? well, don't think, well more government involvement. i think it's about making sure to we're following the scientific evidence has been articulated to us. we know that all micron is up
2:46 pm
to 70 times more transmissible then dealt or some of the other strains of cobra did come along. which was with in the mean for k m k. and i 95 asked when we helped floor. i don't think any of that is controversial. i don't think we can. we were saying that the cloth mass have been completely pointless. just look at your mask at the end of the day, all this stuff that it was on that bad used to be on other people. so i think one of the that's the proof of their effectiveness and stop of transmission of many of these viruses. i think that we have to continue to adapt them evolve just as the we're going through different variance with the virus we have to go through. different variance of protocols will use to fight against your virus. and as we saw in the early days, depending when americans are united, when they are following the lead and they're doing the proper sanitation, social distance that we can get this under control is, is the quote so heavily political will into societal will to go through these things long enough to bring this to get to her immunity, to get into people that say that so we can return to normal life. but i have asked you, robert, it's been 2 years. i mean,
2:47 pm
how much more time do you want when other countries have moved on from these things? i agree, the times has been developing and we're learning more about the doctor. i went to you real quick. i sent it to you though. it's virginia, virginia hospitals are saying, please don't come to our hospice, right. our ears are being overrun with people. they don't even have any real symptoms, but they just feel like they've been exposed. they want to actually, they want to get tested for coven way, or we have seen this sort of run on it because there's the lack of testing or people thinking they're there. they're just thinking they automatically got it because they've been exposed. as this panic actually has been sitting and they're actually kind of backed higher against trying to keep people safe. because now we have people running a hospital for a sniffle, and real people with real emergencies that can't get in this and lack of poor planning. and logistics was a lack of i think there have been many forces of spent the last year or so. i'm trying to cast out on our public health officials. so last month we had the cdc and she new guidelines saying, well, we can do 5 days instead of 10 days for exact reason. you were just mentioning that
2:48 pm
if you are a symptomatic, you don't need to go to the hospital, you don't need to get check, you know, you would need to test out of it. give yourself about 5 days. you can return to your normal life that cause a panic because people do not want to believe them when they were telling you that it's not that bad, just rest up for a couple days and then go back out there. so what we have to do is re establish faith and real stablish of lead from the public health systems that we have and start following the science again. so we can get, get back to the say, well, these are the guidelines that are currently adapted from the evidence that we've seen. now, let's follow those guidelines until they are updated and work her way through this the society. well, that's how i want to thank you both for this conversation. now follow up to the continued controversy regarding a trans gender athletes traditionally competing in the mouth event. now this story actually takes the opposite path, most often at the athlete haven't mediocre record in the sport prior to their transition, but find themselves now in
2:49 pm
a better placement following their transition. in some certain circumstances, the transition to athletes are even at breaking records. the latest comes from the ivy league swim meet where the trans university of pennsylvania swimmer lea at thomas, who broke to national women's records in december was a crushed twice by yell competitor, his arc hennick. leah was still able to win one of her 4 races, but this time only by 2 seconds. here's the twist. 20 year old is ac n e g is transitioning, but from a female to male. and following the when in fact, who already had both abreast removed, pulled down the top of the swim suit revealing or breast traditionally would be located for fema summers. one parent remark to the press, everything is messed up. i can't wrap my head around this. the anti devil a needs to do something. but as of now, the delay policy will allow both athletes to continue to compete on the female
2:50 pm
teams pending. and they continue to follow the current protocol regarding hormonal treatment for gender transition. we're going to keep you posted on the story of the seas and develop. now when you think of a search engines and most often you think of google pen back, it dominates the field so much. it is become a verb. but google competitors are crying foul at the company's business practices because they say it doesn't benefit. it only strengthens the monopoly. explain if this is a legit claim or just a desperation. we bring an investigator and i think a host of boom, best benefits for bon bon, thanks for joining me on this. yeah, think for me. okay, so google okay. to be a fan, it cannot be a fan, but in this case, explain to the audience why death don't go taking google to court. yeah, so what it does go personal. let me just say this before we start that it, google was in trouble in so many places around the world for anti competitive
2:51 pm
practices, but this is just one of those lawsuits. so in this particular case, you've got duck that go, that essentially is saying that google has violated terms of monopolistic practices by essentially messing with these plugins. so when you go to your browser extension on google chrome, for instance, you have the ability to install does that go as an a plugin extension, right? so if you've ever done that before, basically when you're telling your google chrome is, i want my default search bar to be doc that go not to be google. and what they're saying is, is that over the years they were able to grow pretty steadily, even though google constantly did little things like they pulled little tricks in order to make it difficult for people to use these plugin extensions. and then they would pop up warnings and they pop up questions. and then in august of 2020, they did something kind of remarkable, which was that google actually change their system in order to make it even more difficult for people to be able to access these plugins. and then they pop up a huge question for you when you try to use the plugin that says,
2:52 pm
do you want to switch back to google chrome with a big glowing button that says switch, right? and so what they, if they are essentially saying is if you look at the numbers and how duct that goes, traffic has declined. they can trace it back directly to august of 2020 when google chrome instituted this new system. and so what they're saying is that google was essentially making it difficult to have edition, which by the way, is longstanding law in the united states of that is illegal. it goes all the way back to the days of microsoft back when microsoft and there explorer was the default search engine and all of microsoft software. there was a huge lawsuit in the 1990 s bill gates, that when before congress. and there was a lot of questions about what microsoft was doing and because essentially what it was found was that microsoft was violating monopoly and antitrust law by having their default search engine to be explore and blocking out competition in is
2:53 pm
because scottie of those laws and that ruling that google even exists today because had it not been for that, we'd all be using explorer and safari, and nobody would be using google. but here's my thing about this been, doesn't this all start where the traffic is originating on a google platform? so why is very different in, for dr. echo, i mean, they're literally at the mercy of a platform. so why should google be forced to have to make it even for their competition when the traffic starts with them originally? well, because the traffic doesn't start with them. so here's why. because google chrome is not a search engine, right? google chrome, just like microsoft is a software that you install onto a computer in order to operate the computer a google chrome becomes your, your operating system. okay. and so the reason that significant is because when you open up google chrome, it has a whole host of different applications. and one of those applications is to add a search bar separate company, also owned by google,
2:54 pm
which is google search. as you have to remember that when we talk about these issues, and this is the reason that google's in trouble in france and in australia, and then most recently by the way in india, is because they perform these anti competitive practices of saying we're building a whole bunch of technology over here, and then we're going to funnel all of our customers from this particular technology, in this case, google chrome over to or default search engines. and by the way, google gotten in trouble for doing this with android. you know, they create android and the operating system on most people's phones. it's not apple. well, in those cases they've gotten in trouble because they may google the default search engine. and in france, they've been hit with massive fines because they're trying to steer their customers away from utilizing search other than their own search. they're 2 separate companies, the search and the google chrome or android. they're separate companies. google cannot treat them like they're the same company, and that's the key they care for that they are separate on that side. they're not on underneath the same name,
2:55 pm
but it's not just stuck back out of that having an issue with and like you said that google's in trouble all over the world, are there some other cases that you can point to right now that are actually getting some traction well, one of the biggest cases obviously is what's going on in india right now. and that has to do with advertising. so one of the problems that google is run into specifically in france, in an india, is the issue of how they deal with news publishers. so when you go to google, as, as you well know, right. and someone wants to know what's going on in the news and they happen to miss news, use hughes. otherwise they be informed and they go and they type into google, right. and they're searching specifically for some kind of news article will google now range. those searches in their news headlines, right? the thing they've gotten in trouble for is that they are picking and choosing which news publishers to push out through their algorithm that's not legal in france and it's not legal in australia and it's not legal in india. and so what they're facing in terms of government investigations in those countries is the government essentially saying that they are utilizing their search to favor one news publisher
2:56 pm
over another news publishers. and they've gotten in trouble for that. and then there's another issue by the way that google's also facing, and that is the issue of how they prioritize advertising. and they are able to block off certain advertisers or certain companies from receiving advertising because google dominates the online ad market. and so there are a whole bunch of different elements to alphabet the parent company, but really it's all of google, right. and the shoes that they have with anti competitive practices. and as i said, they're anti competitive practices here in the united states and abroad. but it's in those other countries in france and in india, and in australia, where google's actually paying the fines here in the us. we're not doing a whole lot about it. well, i know they're paying something, but it's not fine. it's more like their lobbying group is they're one of the most powerful up on the hill today. and this is by john, could you continue to hold their feet to the fire? thank you, ben. and that is all for today show. i want to continue this conversation on twitter, and i want to talk about whether the entry level i should actually create
2:57 pm
a category solely for transgender athletes. what do you think your answer as got in here? you the hash tag team and b, 8. it for all that of our programming here at r t, america download the portal that to be app is free. and most importantly until we see each other again carrying on you to say happy se healthy and stay informed. and is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? tice elation for community. are you going the right way? or are you being that direct? what is true? what is great?
