"But the feds been wrong on stuff before Sure, Okay, that they're not right about everything. What makes anyone think that the Federal Reserve has the right tools to address climate change? I'm with you until I don't get it. I read it this morning tools. Does the Fed have to address racial disparity? Why is it there problem to address these things? That should not be the focus. If you read what the Federal Reserve this is supposed to do, it's largely tie to employment inflation, setting the discount the Fed funds overnight rate. Monetary policy that is the focus the Federal Reserve take those concerns elsewhere. You wanted address racial disparities, use acts of Congress. That's how you do it right. You want address climate change, use acts of Congress. That's how the Fed can not. Unlike what it could do with the monetary system. The Fed can not just suck in greenhouse gasses and spit out oxygen change lovers. It can't do that They don't say. Okay, let's make the money printer pulled in carbon dioxide and spit up They can't do that. It doesn't work like that. So I just I think that some people think that the Fed actually is run by magicians. If they're not wizards. I mean, they had a heroic performance last year with what they did to really bail us out big time, But they cannot solve world hunger, world peace and climate change. They can't do everything. Harry Potter does not work at the Fed. Yeah, he doesn't. I know I've looked not on the list, not on the list. So I think that you know again. When we look at this, I think there are things that the Fed can do. To help the economy in certain ways. I'm not a huge fan of lower for longer monetary policy, you know, forever because I think it can create some distortion of distorted tive effects. But Given where we are right now and what we're trying to combat coming off of the most severe recession that we have ever seen in our lifetimes. I certainly don't think that this is the time to be talking about bumping up interest rates just because things are a little you want things to be a little hot coming out of a recession, right? Does anyone want to go back to the post over to the post of great recession period? In the early years of the Obama administration, where it was can't find a job being looking for years. There's no money out there. I don't need to hire salesmen because that no one wants to buy my stuff. The problems we have now, with the economy being too hot. I would much rather have those than what we had in 10 2020 14 question about it. No question about it. Boeing gonna be paying the FAA aces and penalties related to the 7 37 and production problems? $17 million Fine. What's it for? It is for lapses related to the 7 37 aircraft models to me. At first I read that it's a G 17 million for a company like bone. That is an absolute nothing fine. But there are federal laws that cap what the number can be. They've already paid 2.5 billion to the US Justice Department. So, finally, the last unwinding of this whole saga that's gone on for quite a while. And and, quite frankly, ah, lot of lapses in judgment on Boeing's part, and, uh, you know the reputational risk. They've taken. They've taken a huge hit there. But the show must be more monetary fines really yet and this is not related to the issues with the 7 37 Max that caused those two crashed. Just to be clear. One was three installation of some guidance systems on earlier 7 37 models with sensors that hadn't been approved under federal regulations. The second was bowing, trying to get approval of 178 7 37 max planes that were built with a potentially defective wing component. Esso again not related to the max crashes that was settled as Paul mentioned to separate $2.5 billion settlement to resolve a criminal investigation proving that you can resolve any criminal investigation without jail time for anyone. If you just pay $2.5 billion, I don't know how you kill 346 people. And avoid any kind of criminal prosecution. But $2.5 billion apparently the answer the bowling being the final say on safety checks, just something that's real concerning it is. Let's take a quick break When we come back. We have trivia, not.

"$17 million" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"Um One thing I discussed with my collar. If you wanna make an NFL point to go back to the baseball stuff to Casey and I talked about that school phones open immediately. 855 2124227 the JJ watt situation down in Houston. I, too. When I first heard about it. I was rather surprised. I said, Wait a minute. They're getting nothing in return for J. J. What? There's not a team in the National Football League That wouldn't give you at least a pick in exchange for JJ Watt, and then I did the contract numbers and it dawned on me. How it probably shook out. No, I haven't seen anybody report this as fact or confirmation from the Texans. And or JK what himself. But I'm pretty sure I can figure out the way this came down. JJ wasn't really too happy with the organization and the direction it was Saturday, and the whole could trade the Shawn Watson thing. And he's got one year to Rana is contract at a big number. $17.5 million. He did not play like a $17.5 million player laid here. And for the first time in years, he actually stayed healthy for almost the entire season and in sack total was only five. So I age is starting to catch up with J. J. Watt now. Maybe he played through pain, Maybe at injuries that you and I don't know about. It didn't keep mad in a lineup. Maybe he will be back to being JJ Watt again next year. I don't know that. But coming off the year that he had 17.5 million looked like a lot for the kind of production that the Texans got in from JJ. What this past season. MP allows the team that Texans pick to trade him to to do so. Well, then he's gonna get his full $17.5 million Because teams going to give something up for him. They're not gonna give up a draft pick to turn around and cut him. So chances are they would the team that would make the trade form would like to talk to him at a time. And say we tell JJ would like to talk to him about his deal will extend It will give him s'more guaranteed money. But we can't take a $70 million cap it next year. So we've got a We do his contract chances on the Texans reached out to J. J and his response was No, I'm good. Renew my contract. Redo my cunt. You're gonna pick the team that I need to negotiate with to redo my contract. No, thanks. I'll just keep my contract as is at $17.5 million, but its upcoming season then I'll go free Agent neck here. The Texans have women. You gotta work with us. He said. No, I don't. No, I'll stay. With the contract that I have in place. When the Texans realized that he was not going to be conducive to talking to a team ahead of time for a potential trade and oh, by the way. You can't blame JJ for that. Because if you're negotiating with one team The tax is going to trade you to team May or Team B your team, see what? Whatever that team is your negotiating with them and on Lee them. If you don't believe that the Texans want to pay you 17.5 million for this upcoming year. They only have one other recourse. And that's to trade you. Oh, sorry. We can't do that. Could JJ won't negotiate? Well, then I guess the only other recourses they're going to release him. Because JJ probably dug his heels in and said No, I'm not going to re negotiate with anybody. If you don't want me back for its 17.5 million, and another team doesn't want to acquire me for its $17.5 million Well, there is a way that we can remedy the situation. Released me. Cut me. That will make me an immediate free agent. And you were guys won't be on the hook for the $17 million. And they said, Yeah, we'd probably not like to do that. But when push comes to shove, they relented and said Yeah, JJ will do you a solid will let you go so that it could be a an amicable parting of the ways because not everything has been Am Ecole amicable down in Houston of late So JJ played his cards right? Got to Texans to release him now. He wondered. Get 17.5 million. The taxes weren't gonna keep him. The new team. New is going to trade for him was gonna ask him to take a pay tight and extend with the signing bonus but would go out over years so they wouldn't have to take that big a salary cap it no, he'd rather be on the open market. He'd rather be a free agent. He told the Texans. Listen, If we do this now and give me a jump on the free agent market will all holds hands and sing Kumbaya. And you can say that it was a mutual parting of the ways which the Texans want to win at least one PR battle ever. Lisa JJ wide, which is gonna make a bunch of their fans very happy. At least some will say well least both parties wanted it. JJ wanted to hit the free agent market, and the Texans were willing to let him do that. So that's the way I figured it happened behind the scenes. I don't know if that's the case, but I'm Pretty sure that that's the case. He played his cards, right? JJ Watt played his cards right, And I think the Texans did basically did what they had to do. They weren't bringing JJ walk back. If they wanted to get into another spitting match. They've already done so with their starting quarterback. Now you're going to do so with the best player in the history of the organization. That's really going to bury him with their fans in that town. So they said. We gotta save some face here and we need to just move on. And we need to do with a smile on our face and get jaded, jaded to help us out and put a smile on his face and the way they got him to put a smile on his face was Him is outright release. Now, Where will Jay Jay? What land? That's something we can discuss on the telephone lines. Get aboard now! 855 to 124227. Most of the sports in play, and I felt talk baseball case.

"$17 million" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"Just like Joe made $17 million last couple years. This is gonna be a cut nine year, Gary just put a fine point on it. Because now The New York Times is telling us something different Now. This story dropped on a holiday weekend. The one of the least. Trafficked news weekends ever and I expect this will not be an ongoing Syriza's like they've sicced reporters on everybody who ever shook hands with Donald Trump. It will be a one time well, we reported on it unless there's some new development that falls into our laps. And that's really how new developments have to happen. They don't actually go out do journalism anymore. They wait for somebody to come and tell them you think somebody in the deep state permanent bureaucracy is going to come out and bad mount their bosses. These are the people they voted for. But just to put a fine point on how different The media coverage is and knowing this because this was known last week, they all knew who West exec visors were. If you're following the news that Joe Biden and surrounded himself with a bunch of people who made a fortune Consulting on government contracts. Just so you know how the media is portraying these people. There's a little montage here, put together by gravy and media. How Joe Biden's appointments are being received by so called journalists cut nine. Go ahead. I'd like to start on the historic nature of some of Of Joe Biden, the president elect. Pick the team, though Biden has put forward is incredibly qualified, perhaps most qualified Cabinet that we're ever going to have a historic appointment history making historic first. That's historic, also historic stories. Another historic I picked there. Is there any one of these pics in particular that kind of stands out out to you? I think they're all outstanding air experience. They're well prepared. Boy. How refreshing is that? It's very refreshing. I was talking to a Democrat who just said this also felt like the Avengers. If that, like we're being rescued from this craziness that we've all lived through from the last 40 years, And now here, the superheroes come and save us all. This is like being at the end of the Wizard of Oz. And this is like the 19 eighties Celtics basketball team properly. How the Z team This is really the 8th 1918 for the country. They are manifestly experienced incompetent, the word competence been throwing around qualified Very coherent columnist. Deep knowledge, Kindness, deep commitment. Professionalism is back expertise is bad. And it's also nice to take a look at a group of appointees that don't look like a restricted all white country club. Jake Sullivan is the leader of the band is the perfect choice is perfectly suited with Alessandro. You're gonna get competent, gifted leader Kind offal brilliance. I can't think of a better person. Let me get your thoughts about back Tony Blinken. I can't think of anybody better. I think tonight maybe Be able to start going to sleep. Yeah, the whole media is going to go to sleep. That's how it was. It is the best the best of the best. These air dedicated public servants, really, who made a fortune in the last four years and are looking to come back so that they can add another zero to their paycheck when they leave again. That's how Washington works. That's how the swamp works. This is how the media works. We did our investigation. We did one report on this. I don't know how much more we can be expected to do. What more can we be expected to do? Other than one run one report on the least traffic news weekend of the year. We're not going to follow up on this. The New York Times, So they swear that they're going to hold the the administration. See, this is they could make that promise. Someone like Cliff Levi can say Court of the New York Times Mission. We will scrutinize the incoming administration just as thoroughly as we did the outgoing one. Well, if you remember The media coverage in the last four years. They were outraged. Not over. Really what Donald Trump was doing. How we did the things, he said. So if Joe Biden starts tweeting mean things about Rosie O'Donnell, I suppose we can expect some reporter at The New York Times to say this is wrong. You shouldn't do that. But when it comes to policy, they'd have to be outraged by it. They'd have to be disturbed by the method through which it was achieved Executive order rather than legislation. And as we know from the Obama years, they are not at all outraged. By the way things are done. It is agenda uber Hollis and I choose German. There deliberately. It is ruled by decree. It is ruled by pen and paper. The Magic pen and phone that Barack Obama said he had in his in the Oval Office. If Congress did not bow to his will, which is again wildly and pathetic, Aeltus, the Nature of our government. But it doesn't matter if they're on the team, and someone on your team is doing it. They don't care. So, yes, they will run occasional pieces. Journalism will accidentally be done, if only as an afterthought. In otherwise puffy pieces. Controversy. It will be couched as Republicans say conservatives are angry over they won't do any original reporting. They will just check that box. When something bad happened to Democrat. Some corruption was exposed to a Democrat. How was it? Republicans pounce. That's how it was reported. Republicans are pouncing. When a Republican does something that deserves scrutiny, scorn or investigation, it is simply stated as such. When a Democrat, doesn't it is Republicans pouncing it? Is Republicans taking advantage. It is all of those things that makes all of us. Hate the media and makes that hatred of media be 100% justified. They're just getting started here. Ladies and gentlemen, if the New York Times had any interest whatsoever in holding the powerful, accountable, even powerful on their team, we would have been hearing about things like this during The election. Right? They would have been some scrutiny of the people around Joe Biden back at a time when the American public needed information about Joe Biden. Instead, the only stories they ever did on something like Hunter Biden's laptop Woz couched as right wing thinks that they're going to get something out of this. Alleged laptop and then the story was all about the laptop. By the way, the guy they were computer repair guy who Hunter took that laptop, too. There's a story he closed up shop and he left town. Yeah. He closed up shop and left town of because he was receiving death threats from tolerant Democrats. That part didn't make the headlines. The headlines are what is mostly read by people, but it's how the left will function. In the next four years. It's rather disturbing and disgusting. But if you really want a taste of what journalism is going to be like, Look at that look at that story is this guy's skipped town. Yeah, The guy is in hiding. Because Democrats are threatening to kill him. Kind of puts a different spin on the he skipped town story. So spare me that The New York Times is going to look at this Joe Biden as closely as they looked at Donald Trump. They want. We will. It'll be out there, but it won't be is widely disseminated as it would be if it were a front page New York Times Story on a weekend that wasn't One of the biggest holidays of the year. There's so many questions about real estate right now. Should you sell now? Or wait until next year? How much is your house worth? Is the.
Hurricane Iota batters Central America
"Devastating devastating devastating devastating devastating devastating hurricanes hurricanes hurricanes hurricanes hurricanes hurricanes have have have have have have pummeled pummeled pummeled pummeled pummeled pummeled Central America on November 3rd hurricane at the first struck Nicaragua and then made its way to Honduras and Guatemala. According to the Red Cross. More than two million people in the region were affected by floods and landslides caused by the hurricane. Then this week, another hurricane Hurricane iota made landfall in Central America delivering yet another blow to the region. The two storms back to back aren't only devastating to communities in Central America, but are also complicating efforts to mitigate covert 19. Joining us now to talk about what's happening on the ground is Jeff EARNS two freelance journalist based in Honduras. Jeff Thanks for being with us For having me. So what are conditions on the ground in Honduras right now? Right now. Much of Honduras is underwater, particularly in the Northwest Sula Valley region, which is home to about two million people, and it's really the economic motor. Of the country, So the fact that so much of this area in particular is underwater is really indicative of how damaging it is. Given that roughly 40% of the GDP or more is produced in this region, but really after iota we have much more widespread damage. A lot across the whole country was a much larger storm. So just particular across the North Coast and and the West, there's still rising waters in some parts. We've lost a lot of bridges and roads and other infrastructure. There's many people are currently displaced by the flooding. The storm's first struck Nicaragua before going through Honduras and Guatemala. What were the effects in those two countries? With a to it was damaging. But it went through a pretty lowly populated area of Nicaragua. But iota was so much larger. That it really hit harder in Nicaragua, and even the winds were harder to sew. In Nicaragua. We're seeing pretty widespread damage flooding even in the capital, Managua. And south of it to Nicaragua's pretty devastated this 0.2. You've been reporting on this region in Honduras for awhile have how have the government's responded to efforts on the ground? The government's response has been heavily criticized ahead of eight actually scheduled this special holiday for that week week in in order order to to try try to to Remote Remote domestic domestic tourism tourism and and stimulate stimulate the the economy, economy, which which has has been been really really hit hit hard hard by by the the cove cove in in 19 19 pandemic, and there was a clear reticence by the government to Cancel that vacation, so they did not emit alerts or or evacuation orders, which led Tens of thousands of people in completely caught off guard being and then ended up getting trapped on the roof, some for as many as five days. And, of course, That led to two more deaths, which we really don't know how much yet because the water Has never been able to fully received from eight to before We got hit by iota, so there's really clear negligence by the government here and then in terms of responding They're completely overwhelmed by it. And they clearly unprepared and there's a real question of how they're spending. Their resource is the government just a year ago. Just from Israel. This Folks from war and yet their emergency response unit doesn't have the boats necessary to go to the healthy, strong currents that was seen from the footing in order to rescue people. Until the water gets down. The people are very upset, definitely more than ever with with the government and this could definitely lead to even more political instability than we've seen down here in the past and that political instability Could also sperm or migration out of the region. Is that right? Coming towards where? There That's the United States are moving towards Mexico or other places this people try to survive. Absolutely. There's already people organizing on social media caravans that looks like they're planning for January, most of them whether or not that materializes. There's just no doubt we're going to see it another tick in migration over the next year, particularly As Kobe 19 travel Strick Shins are eased. I took so many people already. Particularly the young people who just see no opportunity. They have no work, and now they've lost everything. They really have nothing to lose, and they see migrating as the quickest way to be able to help their families to rebuild and and recoup everything they've lost. United States government has limited at least one of the Trump administration migration from many of these countries. At the same time, it's asked many Central American countries to help it with its asylum policies. Has the U. S government sent any aid? To these countries as they struggled to deal with the blows from these hurricanes. The lack of leadership from the U. S. Following this crisis is really Shocking. There's been no word from the State Department or from the White House, other than U S aid, which is down here most recently after Iota they designated $17 million to the region. Half of which is going to Honduras and then Also the U. S. Military, based on here has been a source of rescue missions, which has definitely been very helpful. But $17 million We're talking about billions and billions of dollars in damage. And really in 1998 when Hurricane Mitch hit, which is the worst natural disaster in center America To date, it was US leadership that mobilized support from the global community. And that is completely lacking at this point. President elect Biden has expressed his concern and support for the region, so there's hope that when he takes office He will take up that traditional leadership role of the U. S. To help one of its neighbors will be watching to see how this pans out. Jeff earns two freelance reporter based in Honduras. Thanks for being with us and stay safe. Thanks for having me

"Of sports betting in the district has yet to deliver the windfall to the city treasury that officials had promised The Washington Post reports. So far, the numbers are a bit more than $400,000, and that it's far short of the $17 million city officials had projected for sports gambling. During the first it's during this fiscal year. City officials point to a number of factors, however, that have affected numbers, including the cancellation of many sports events during the pandemic. And some confusion about placing wagers. Sony
How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially
"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees.

Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems.

Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct.
