LeBron James' Son Drug on Socials for Prom Date
"I am going to say something crazy controversial and some people are going to be mad at me, but I don't care because Jesus is behind me, who can be against me. I know it's not cliches, but it's true. I don't really care what people think. Now, the survey was, I don't have the papers with me. I can't find them. You can look it up yourself. You should be verifying everything I say. Polls show that Americans believe that black people are probably the most racist people out of any other group in America. And I would imagine that hatred evilness and racism is a disease that plagues every single race. However, when you have an environment where one race has the opportunity or have the opportunity to be racist and nobody checks them, they begin to run rampant. Why do you come up with this saying Brandon? And why did you come up with this concept? Why are you citing these polls? Because I just saw something that I thought was the most racist thing I've ever seen coming from black folks. LeBron James, his son, went the prom, with a white girl. Now, any other rational person in America would say, who cares? I don't care. If the man liked the girl, then so be it. You'd rather be with somebody you liked than somebody that looked like you that you don't like. However, you go to the Instagram of a huge Instagram channel called a neighborhood. They call it black Instagram. It's where most of the black issues of America, of our time, they posted on there. They talk about it. A lot of it is degeneracy. However, they are criticizing LeBron James 18 year old son for taking his white girl to the prom. And I think that he looks magnificent. I think she's absolutely gorgeous. They look like a great couple. They look like they had a good time. However, I'll read some of the comments for you guys because people are just out of control. Now my wife wrote a comment and she got 82 likes, probably everybody that followed me saw my wife's comment and liked it 'cause all these black chicks on here are mad is I don't know what. First comment, oh lord. Next comment. We already knew where this was going.

Remember When Bill Clinton Blamed Talk Radio for Oklahoma Bombing?
"There's only one word to use for people who take personal suffering and tragedy and loss of life and weaponize it to try to score points. It's gross. It's grotesque. There's no other word to describe it. Listening to the people on the left, the joy Reid's and the Don lemons of the world who want to somehow blame the evil action of one 18 year old in Buffalo, New York. On a TV network or a television personality or a radio personality, Clinton tried this years ago. I'm old enough to remember when Bill Clinton tried to blame talk radio. For the Oklahoma City bombing, and I think he got so much pushback in Democrats got so much flack for such a grotesque thing to do. That they didn't do it again, but they're doing it this time. They're doing it with buffalo. And it is really sickening. That's the only word to use.

Democrats Jump on Politicization of Buffalo Mass Shooting
"Over the weekend, we saw an act of evil in Buffalo, New York. I hate my cynicism. I hate being cynical about and I hate even talking politics or Democrats or Republicans or left or right. I hate this. I hate this. But it is what they do to us. It's what the Democrats shamelessly exploit that puts me into this despicable state of cynicism. Here's a headline that puts me into a state of cynicism. Biden to head to buffalo tomorrow. Following massacre. Of course you know by now an 18 year old monster, an evil, white supremacist apparently, went to a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, and murdered ten people. Innocent people just going about their business, living their lives, going to buy some groceries. And immediately, the Democrats pounced. Tucker Carlson's fault. Fox News channel's fault. Conservative media's fault. That's what happens. With conservatives in the media.
Weekend Mass Shootings Dominate News Coverage
"Killer in laguna Woods, you may not know about. Yesterday afternoon, a 60 year old Asian man, that's the only description I have from the Los Angeles Times, stood up in a luncheon honoring a former pastor at a Taiwanese Christian church in laguna Woods, which is not far from my old home in Orange County. They were welcoming back for a luncheon, Jerry Chen, excuse me, I want to get that Jerry Chandler's the fellow gave the quote the former pastor's name is here somewhere I can't find it, but Tom Kramer, who is the head of the presbytery of Los ranchos. Again, I used to be a member of this Presbyterian. Kramer did not know if the pastor was harmed in the shooting, a pastor clobbered the gunman as he tried to reload with a chair and a bunch of the so called older victims. They were all in their 60s. Those not shot tackle them in hog tied in, but it's a 60 year old Asian man is the killer there. In Harris county, Texas, the more traditional weekend shooting, two young men shooting at each other, wounding three and killing two at a Harris county flea market. At 1 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. So guns are everywhere, The Wall Street Journal, however, wrote about the particular evil of the buffalo shooting. There is a culture of white supremacy in the United States and people need to understand not large, but it definitely evil and it's dangerous because it attracts the unbalance like this 18 year old this was pure evil said Erie county sheriff Garcia in an app summary of the mass murder at a cyber market in Buffalo writes The Wall Street Journal. That appears to be racially motivated. The alleged shooter 18 year old Peyton gendron, the last time you'll hear his name on my show, is another young man possessed by inexplicable hatred.
Who Is Charlie Kirk?
"Here, believe it or not, because not everybody has access to all the awesome videos and content that you're producing. But who is Charlie Kirk? Who are you? And how in the world did you get to the point where you're at at 28 years old? It depends who you ask, I guess. There's a couple of different answers to that. First of all, I gave my life to the lord in 5th grade, most important decision. I made in my life. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. So in the state of Illinois, now I'm going to have to now hear my Illinois deal. You guys all know this. You see in Illinois, we have term limits, a little different than most states, one term in office, one term in jail. See? You guys get it. They get it, Missouri. I'll tell you what. All right, how about see when we ask for our governor's cell number? So born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. Started this whole effort to try to save America and save western civilization. When I was 18 years old, I'm wanted to get into West Point, didn't get in. It was the best thing that never happened to me. God has a plan for all of us. And I thought I knew what I was doing, and I didn't. And so I started this effort with no money, no connections, no idea what I was doing. When I was 18 years old in the suburbs of Chicago, and I felt a need, a deep urge that the people of this nation needed to wake up, especially students in young people. I felt that we were given this incredible constitutional republic, and we were making decisions. Self inflicted decisions to turn this country away from righteousness and towards decay and despair. And again, it was a clumsy first couple of years starting at turning point USA at some amazing support along the way. The lord really had his hand on this organization and has had his hand on this organization all along and ten years later. We are now the nation's premier organization for young people, pursuing and defending American values on high school and college campuses across the country.

Ketanji Brown Jackson Needs to Give Better Explanations
"This is a woman being considered for a lifetime appointment Given her age I believe she's in her early 50s she could be sitting there for 35 40 years who knows given current technology may be more I wish her a long productive life I'm not a leftist I don't wish ill on anyone 40 years long time folks There are very few ways to get rid of a Supreme Court Justice It's a lifetime appointment I'm sorry but I'm going to need a better explanation as to why you think 8 year olds are peers with 18 year olds when it comes to crimes This disgusting I'm going to need a better explanation And I'm also going to need a better explanation about why you don't understand what critical race theory is or why you claim to not understand I'm going to need a better explanation of that as well I know what it is I know how it's been used to teach kids to be racist I know why it's used It's used as a way as a weapon to keep identity politics fresh in the mind of leftists because leftists can't actually run on anything taking your money taking your healthcare and taking your kids education is not a popular campaign position The only way the left wins elections is by creating a victim culture the white male oppressor is coming for you the rich man's coming for you Will protect you It's the only way they win That's why CRT is such an essential component
Winsome Sears Shares Why She Chose to Serve Her Country
"My dad joined the marines because he said he could go with the action is and he loved the uniform. Why did you join the marines? Well, I joined the Marine Corps because when my grandmother died I was 18 years old at the time I was supposed to go to college, the very next month I was all set, everything my courses, my books were bought. But when she died, I looked at her in the casket, and I thought, well, what's the purpose of life if you're just going to die, all the good that she did, all the love she's dead. You see, I knew the lord, but I, you know, I was 18 years old. What do I really know? And I just thought my life was over. And I saw a jet magazine. I flipped it open. There was a Marine Corps advertisement. This was in Jamaica. It was in Jamaica. And I said, that's it. I'm going back to America, and the marines will give me a reason to live because I need some discipline, and that so when I joined the Marine Corps I was still a Jamaican citizen. But
How Does One Train for War? Jessie Jane Duff and Sebastian Discuss
"I don't want to have some kind of war is awful, isn't it so sad? Because yeah, it has been since the first caveman picked up a rock and used it against his fellow caveman. But I just want people to understand. First, the message of those young men who look so incredibly young, Jesse Jane and also that statement from that 18 year old death is not an option. Will you talk to us as somebody who's worn the cloth of the republic? This isn't just a news story. It stands out to me as they only had three days training and as a United States Marine and go through recruit training for 30 months. God willing you don't get recycled and how to stay longer. You have to learn how to deal with intense duress, intense stress. And you basically train your body to respond to it in a logical way without panic without collapsing. I don't know how anybody can go into the front lines or combat without some form of training. But I absolutely admire these young men for being able to say, if not me, then who. And if it's not going to be us to defend the Ukraine, obviously we can't count on the NATO, United States, despite the promise that the United States and Britain made two the Ukraine to give up their nuclear weapons, what was that in 1998 or 94 under president Clinton, the promise that we would defend them, what the heck you know? I'm not suggesting that we would have American troops down there. I don't want to promote that, but I just feel like we're inevitably heading down that path because we've been so weak in our response initially. We didn't come back out forcefully. We didn't put the swift banking in immediately. We didn't cut off the oil immediately. And we've got NATO alliances that are still dependent upon Russian oil, and they're fiddle farting around trying to decide, well, we need this oil more than we need them to be alive. It's just a debacle on so many levels.
How Can the US Better Help Its Veterans? Joey Jones Tells Us
"Where do you see our country in working with our veterans working with those? Because I still think, frankly, the worst is still yet to come. I think we've still got another 5 or ten years when you're going to start seeing a lot of what we've seen in the last 15 to 20 years out in manifest itself. How can we as a public do better with that and how do we as a government can do better with that? You know, I've chased the answer to that question for 15 years now. Mostly because I feel like I transitioned very well. And it frustrates me that so many of my peers that folks that led me that mentored me that taught me folks that I helped and thought I'd shared a lot with along the way have not transitioned well and I have so I feel a lot of guilt for that and then I want to solve that problem for them. And I think that a couple of things have happened that kind of created this problem. One of them is kind of a tail wagging the dog thing as a society we've become more entitled and unfortunately does spill over into the veteran community. I mean, if you raise someone for 18 years as a part of this generation of Americans that have a certain characteristic, I don't want to label them all with it, but kind of an aspect of entitlement among them. Even if they join the military, that's not going to go away. And then the other thing is when you fight a war and you need all the bodies you can throw with it for a solid ten years, then you make a lot of promises to convince folks to come into the military. In my generation might be the first generation that enlisted in the military under the premise that this was a lifelong commitment regardless of how long I spent in the military. And that's created a lot of problems because they call it failure to relaunch. We have this problem where we kind of, it kind of scares us right. We get out and we have to really, we're in a place kind of similar to hospital seniors leaving high school, like what's next? What am I going to do for the rest of my life? And yet we've created a situation where you can kind of just be a veteran for Esther a lot. Well, as a society, what we have to do is still have a, we still have to have positive reinforcement among our military to expect them to go do great things after service.
What Makes Crypto So Compelling? Collin Plume Explains
"What makes crypto so compelling for a gold guy? Well, I think it's the decentralized aspect of it that it doesn't have to go through any banks. It's not controlled by the fed. It's not controlled. It's the market dictates the price. So obviously there's wild fluctuations. There's a lot of volatility in crypto. But you know that that volatility is based on supply and demand of what's happening. People are buying and selling out there. So I think that's the first side of it. Second side is just creating a system of utility in the world. A lot of cryptocurrencies, their mission is to make our lives better. And so many different ways. From healthcare. I mean, the ability to have all of our data and my fathers of veteran. And so when he goes to the VA, they have his data from when he was, you know, he's 76 now. They have his data. When he served, when he was 18 years old. And so they can pull all that up, right? Which is so convenient. Most people like us, you go to 7 different doctors. Oh, where's your oh, you broke your leg? How do I get that? How do I get that extra? You can't get that data. So the VA has that system. The blockchain is creating that system. So your doctor, whatever doctor you go to, let's say you got some mercy or in a car accident, you fly in and they don't know that you're allergic to penicillin. And something happens, which happens all the time. These kind of mistakes. So that data would be at the fingertips because of what they can build on the blockchain. So that utility is something that I don't think anyone can disagree with. And also would make our lives better and easier.
What's New in Theaters This Weekend
"Talk to me, sunny. I need to go to the I'm going to Arizona tonight to moderate a Senate and governor debate tomorrow morning. I'm going to need a movie tomorrow night. What do I see?

Who Is Jim Hanson, President of Security Studies Group?
"But let's start at the beginning because this is what we do with all our long form guests. So tell them who is Jim Hanson. What is he done and how did he get to be the head of this organization? Wow. The real way I got to be it was I went to the university of Wisconsin Madison as a young 18 year old back when UW mad city was the number one party school in America as rated. And I got serious number one. This is number one by Playboy magazine. They rated UW max city number one. I took a bunch of classes. I took Hebrew because I was thinking about joining the IDF. I took astronomy to stop that. Okay, so can you just explain that? Why are we going to join these red defense forces? Because of entebbe. Is the greatest commando raid? Are you circumcised? Yeah. And I mean how to speak the alphabet? I had a body in my unit in the British intelligence reserves, went to serve with the what do they call them multinational for MFR? The MFA in the Sinai. And he fell in love with Israeli. I wanted to. 8 32, you had to get circumcised. Ouch. Don't know, please don't go there. Okay, so Hebrew I'm taking tags I'm doing that. I'm thinking about all those things. But top party school in the country. I got 5 incompletes. That's impressive. My dad was not impressed. Who is the Vietnam vet and West Point grad? No way. Yeah, to two tours of Vietnam. So he got the envelope and he opens it up and he looks at it and looks at me and looks at it again and looks at me. Crumples it up, throws it in the fireplace and says, you need to find a place to live and a job because I'm not paying for school anymore. So you out. I kicked me out and said, you might want to consider joining the army because they can't fire your raising butt. So are you a good joke? That kicks you out and joined the army. That is a good story. It's a great one. It should be pretty commercial because after that, things

"18 years" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"Did you discover anything good in our reading today. I bet you did. And i hope that whatever it was. You'll spend some more time thinking about it today because proverbs. Sixteen twenty says whoever gives thought to the word we'll discover good ponder the word dwell in it and let it dwell in new. Be intentional about it. Wisdom is never an accident one of the things. I noticed that. I wanna spend more time thinking about showed up. Twice in proverbs. Sixteen and it's the idea of sweetness of speech verse. Twenty one says the wise of heart is called discerning in sweetness of speech. Increases persuasiveness verse. Twenty four says gracious words like a honeycomb sweetness to the soul in health to the body. I don't know if you've ever eaten honeycomb or not not the cereal but it's amazing and super healthy. I want to speak words like that. Gracious sweet life giving words. It's so easy to default to sarcasm or slander or skepticism. But i want him to transform my heart in such a way that it flows out of my mouth and god knows speech control and self control. Go hand in hand. I thirty two points to that as well. It says whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. This proverb points out that it's more challenging to control ourselves than to win a war against others. what more strength is demonstrated an acting peacefully that an out in anger and we literally can't do this on our own. Self control is part of the fruit of the spirit listed in glaciers. Five which literally means. It's the fruit or evidence of god. The spirit at work in you. It's not you it's him. Chapter seventeen has on a topic. We haven't seen much of yet in proverbs. Forgiveness verse nine says an offense seeks love but he repeats. A matter separates close friends. This i not only compels people to forgive but also compels the forgiven person to repent if there's not repentance. Forgiveness is disrupted in this instance. The relationship is ruined chapter. Eighteen hits on something. We've talked about previously two days ago on day. One fifty seven. We talked about the contrast between proverbs. Ten fifteen which says a rich man's wealth as a strong city and the poverty of the poor. Is there room and proverbs. Eleven twenty eight which says whoever trust in his riches will fall. We see that played out again. Today i tend to eleven says the name of the lord is a strong tower. The righteous man runs into it and is safe. A rich man's wealth as strong city and like a high wall in his imagination. It appears to provide him with safety and security but it's all in his imagination. It's an illusion. We live in a time where almost every day we see. People stripped of everything. They've spent their lives amassing wealth power approval fame all gone a second. There's literally nothing that can't be taken from us. Except for god and his family. It's very humbling. And it also helps us keep perspective on the right things. This made me think back to seventeen twenty four which says the discerning sets his face toward wisdom that the eyes of fool are on the ends of the earth the fool chases every possible unattainable goal the wise have the goal of wisdom and know it only comes from god is another theme chapter eighteen. It shows up. Frequently in association with wisdom verse twelve says before destruction. A man's heart is haughty but humility comes before honor. We read a similar proverb today in sixteen eighteen which says pride goes before destruction at a haughty spirit before a fall. This is where the phrase pride goes before fall comes from. Humility doesn't make a lot of assumptions. Humility isn't entitled. Humility gives the benefit of the doubt. Humility shows up in our actions but it starts in the heart and that's where wisdom resides to. That's why sixteen twenty one uses the phrase wise in heart because wisdom is related to heart capacity as much as mental capacity. Where did you see. Today's god. Shot mine was peppered throughout proverbs. Sixteen especially in that. Chapter solomon spends a lot of time hovering over god's sovereignty as it pertains to various of life. What plans come to pass purposes. Things serve for instance. Here are just a few of the verses that point to that directly the plans of the heart belong to man but the answer of the tongue is from the lord the lord has made everything for its purpose. Even the wicked for a day of trouble. The heart of man plans his way. But the lord establishes his steps the lot is cast into the lap but it's every decision is from the lord seen this theme painted in broad strokes and fine lines across the pages of scripture over the past one hundred fifty nine days but solomon has such a poetic way of summarizing it. It gives me hope. There are some days. Discouragement threatens to take hold or fear taunts me or regret knocks on my door every hour and sometimes the only that comforts me is the reminder of god's sweet sovereignty that he is active in everything and his plans to bring about the restoration of all the things we've broken cannot be defeated. He's working out his plan for good and he's where the joy is. We don't wanna just hope you read the bible. We want to help you study the bible wanna help you engage with others about what you're reading so we've built out to tools that we hope will help you and they work together perfectly. The first tool is a daily study guide. This is designed for you to do on your own. There are roughly five questions today to help dig into the text and learn more on your own while you're reading. These questions tend to focus more on research and study. And we've left space for you to write in the guide itself. The second tool is the weekly discussion guide. It has about ten questions per week and they're totally different questions. From the daily study guide but again they worked together perfectly..

You know what you're saying is we will see some behavior. It sounds like you're saying consumer behavior and you know government fiscal policy behavior. That will be an indicator to us that we are actually approaching the peak. Yeah i mean. I mean i don't want to. I don't want to pretend that any of this is particularly easy. Had something will come along to probably make me look a bit stupid when we get towards the peak. I mean this is what markets do they. They make the most informed commentators. Lola talking about and and now the reason why one of the cycles was twenty one years as she i think probably the roaring twenty s so in one thousand nine hundred nineteen twenty. And what's interesting about. That is the real estate market did indeed peak eighteen years off the previous one in one thousand nine hundred eighty six but what ended up doing because the the stop bull market was so strong that a lot of money came out of real estate and got pulled into the stock market and so we tend to think of the peak of that cycle is nineteen twenty nine..

"18 years" Discussed on Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast
"So no i want to tell you guys a little story during my second tour in iraq i was introduced to these massive massive surveillance towers that had cameras capable of seeing at least a mile away in perfect resolution it may have been further than that i can't remember the exact specs but it allows the the marine corps units i was a squad army MP's with the station with a battalion of marines in our area to see a green amount of their patrol area without having to send people to actually observe it your patrols on have to be there they can see down certain streets or certain hot spots and iraq itself is mostly a really flat and desert areas of the world aside from the north which only added to the range of the towers there was in two thousand and eight or my squad was blocking off a road after finding a roadside bomb and we sat there for i don't know how many hours waiting for are you ready to arrive in diffuse device and despite my truck being parked a few hundred meters from the bomb i could actually see the bomb myself but you know who could see the bomb the giant marine tower back on our camp behind me they knew that they knew that the text we're going to blow it up before i did i remember it was pitch black got like eleven or eleven thirty at night and all of a sudden assists huge ball of fire in the air and like oh yeah they told us they were gonna blow we we we we didn't let you know so uh think nobody was close enough to get hurt or anything like that but yeah that that really pissed me off i tell the story because of a new report from the intercept detailing how towers like these are going to become the norm along the US southern border accept these new towers are ten years more advanced and far more powerful customs and border protection plans to build a ten of them across a particular area of the border in arizona where the two hano owed ham nations reservation sits described his quote hundred sixty foot surveillance tower capable of continuously monitoring every person in vehicle within a radius of seven point five miles the tower will be outfitted with high definition cameras with night-vision thermal sensors and ground sweeping radar all of which will feed time data to border patrol agents at a central operating station in a ho- arizona the system will store archive with the ability to rewind contract individuals movements across time and ability known as wide area persistent surveillance and the contractors doing the work at the order they belong to outfit called elbit systems they are israel's largest military contractor and you're never gonna guess what are those towers and surveillance systems were first tested installed in the gaza strip the palestinian people have been living under this particular security nightmare or their homeland is both physically and digitally occupied everyday all day and now part of that nightmare is coming to our southern border now keeping all that in mind and that to the next headline here and targeting system known as real time regional way or our t. r. g. created and hone on america's many battlefields including iraq and afghanistan as helped connect NSA data with both can until activities on far off battlefields and until from american allies NSA analysts here in the US can immediately sift through intel from multiple american allies and their activities on the battlefield and vice versa guess what federal agency is now using this exact tracking system are in border it's ice ice uses this tool day sage combat drug smuggling and human trafficking will horrible acts to be sure but should they be fought using the same kind of intelligence capabilities we bring to our ostensible enemies overseas the article from the intercept on this topic makes it clear that countries using this system have no way of knowing how their intelligence is being used by allies in the furtherance of their own combat goals and the same goes for american law enforcement agencies trying to use this intelligence there are lots of parts of this narrative that are really horrifying but today like you guys to only focus on one military technology always comes home a weapon or system bill up for one purpose often ends up elsewhere being used entirely differently wall certainly these headlines not the only examples there certainly died in wont examples of how these systems will always come home to roost we as americans need to understand this more than anyone else in the world please go ahead ryan okay i was just gonna say thous great what i got from that as i'm listening is okay the military tech you know made in the guys a strip corporations over people you know free palestine on great new documentary called gaza fights for we don't dumb by abby martin in mike breitner of the empire files and you know about the great march of the return in basically you know we'd rather have military contracts with military industrial a complex industries in corporate elites on both sides over there making this technology to bring home to the south now the immigration problem you know let's talk about the monroe ever since the monroe doctrine we've been doing corporate imperialism all seru latin america you know this country was founded as an imperialist country when christopher columbus started committing genocide on indigenous people all over north america you know and even before that the spanish inquisition in latin america i mean it's it's insane to me that people don't see military industrial complex run by these corporations and elitists which fun your mainstream democrat in mainstream republican they control all the publish rings all around the world and it comes down to corporations and profits over people and that's i of people's movement proletarian movement as needed you know i've written a lot about empire coming home i've even titled more than one article as the empire comes home or this is what happens when it comes home and normally i write about surveillance on american people often i talk about the border and henry's headlines here combined bowl and i think we have to start to be honest with ourselves about what occurs when you fight counterinsurgency or whatever you wanna call these terror wars since nine eleven when you fight these for two decades it is historically inevitable that the technology and the tactics applied against foreign usually brownfields will inevitably boomerang back the united states embassy used i against our communities of color whether they be urban ghettos or border refugee communities and eventually after that it'll come back on all as we saw with the snowden allegations or the snowden leaks where we found out wow like even if even if you're a white christian male you're still being targeted by the NSA whoa you know that people have some pause you mentioned that israel of course is complicit in all this i mean israel has become the model the surveillance and the occupation and the imprisonment of palestinians in the west bank and especially in the gaza strip that is what america has become it's the model for american behavior on the for mexico right and everything south of the rio grande is the gaza strip and west bank so far as we're concerned the enemy anyone on that side is the enemy so surveilling them brutalizing them arresting them dividing them from their children that's all okay and and and ice is really just a domestic arm of the US military and the US national security national dirty intelligence state and we need to be banging the drums because you know a famous writer who escapes me was talking about you know ozzie germany and saying how nobody stood up when different groups were you know attacks killed imprisoned by the nazis and this writer said something the effect of you know i they came for the communists you know the nazis came for the communists i didn't say anything 'cause i wasn't a communist you know and then they the socialists and i didn't speak up because i wasn't a socialist and and then they came for the jews and and and and i didn't speak up because i wasn't jewish and when they then came from me there was no one left to speak up for me and that's how i feel we have to treat the most marginalized communities among whether they be people of color within the states for people of color migrants and refugees many cases from US backed wars and us-backed depression we need to stand with the least among us like christ might have said intend because if we don't there's gonna be no one left to speak up for the rest of us and it's just the right thing to do absolutely i think the the mission creep is really interesting just because the NSA has the you know they basically work everywhere and so when you have somebody that uses something in theater of course it's going to be shared with the other agencies or the other parts of the agency right so like we have a we have a facility in texas tonio and you know mainly they are about like drug interdiction or whatever the like monitoring things but i can only imagine with everything that's been going on and be pushed me administration i can only imagine that they are being used for other purposes or as we're seeing they argued other purposes at least the technology and away that information sharing has become so so easy it's it's so easy to and that's that's what's so scary to me about archeology program used on the borders that you have you have low law enforcement and ice officials who maybe don't have the clearance to look at the at the products that are being made they they hope they'll have liaisons from the NSA that can basically related information to them in real time and that's like that's really scary the most potential to be really damaging to american constitutional rights you know is the fact that like if they what if they started giving it to police departments or agencies that were you know that they deemed necessary like that's that's pretty scary stuff and it's it's this considering that it could be a really big problem yeah and i'm telling an additional keegan just said about you know the the trickle down of the military industrial complex okay in this military technology has been filtering after the massive amount of you know tanks and humvees and assault rifles and all these things that were made the the false flag you know war on terror they've trickled down to the communities i mean after the police murdered michael brown and ferguson you know it looks like it looks like a war zone i mean within these are local law enforcement a lot of who have PTSD and have been traumatized either by veteran services or by now being a law enforcement officer and some of the traumatizing circumstances you come across and these corporations instead of investing and protecting people maybe investing in some mental health no they'd rather invest.
"18 years" Discussed on PRI's The World
"One initiate includes fact checking partnerships with news organizations nations across the globe. The collaboration Canada has been in place for more than a year Emma. Jacobs sat down with the main reporter on Canada's fax checking team. I'll show you ooh facebook.com. Louis Boudoir has access to a special part of facebook. Most people can't see the list of stories Canadian users have flagged as false news but here I can see how many times something was shared in total how many times they were shared in the past twenty four hours but Doi- works for the AFP wire service which facebook pays to do fact checking and Canada using this list of flag stories and other tools but y chooses articles and memes to dig into he employs traditional reporting tools calling up experts and looking up statistics and he also relies on the internet tools like ones that help identify when images are being used out of context here all the screen shot to I use reverse image search for example to demonstrate that a photo that supposedly shows refugees in Sweden is actually of protesters and Chile and boom. I've got like all these websites here that I used an identical image most of the disinformation Baldwin comes across involves politics and also health and science. It's like climate change or vaccines he writes up anything he's able to disprove in a post for the AFP fact check blog and people who shared the false item get a notification on facebook with a link to the post saying which are there's additional reporting on this matter by afe content about when marks arcs as false gets shown to facebook users less but not taken down the original poster sometimes right him to say they've changed their article to to try and get it on flagged. Those posters are usually Canadian not international but if you're GONNA ask me about Russian butts okay about Russia. The Canadian eighty in government has shared several generic warnings about risks of foreign interference in advance of Canada's October elections. The communications security the establishment and intelligence agency declined an interview but former politician Allen Rock wrote a report on potential problems for the Transatlantic Commission Commission on Elections Integrity. He says there are concerns that certain countries might try to influence public opinion Russia of course has made major priority in foreign policy so Russia China Iran and perhaps others they may not support a specific candidate or create eight fake articles but try to amplify divisive issues or extreme messages to undermine the way democracy works to reduce public confidence in it to to encourage controversies among our citizens to undermine social cohesion. This is what Russia is alleged to have done during European parliamentary elections ends earlier this year the fact checker. Bowdoin says he doesn't think he's seeing say Russian created propaganda in any case. He says the motivation in behind. What's being shared isn't really his concern? I do very much just like straight up debunking so they has to be an element that is factually inaccurate. Ah someone's being intellectually dishonest misleading whatever as long as they're factually correct. It's not supposed to debunk them. He applies is this task to a flagged that was put out by a group opposed to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau it dealt with the controversial topic of Canadians returning from fighting for Isis some Guy Holding AK forty seven and wearing some kind of a black mask and he's sitting in a comfy looking chair on the phone the caption in Matt Classic Mean Font has the guy saying and I'm summarizing a little here. I can go commit crimes. Abroad and Trudeau will just let me back in the accompanying text mocks poetry classes that are in fact one piece of wider reintegration effort for returning jihadists and their families so it's not the whole story but Bowden's verdict. The core of the post is basically true. This passes the fact check test and won't get flagged. It's really hard and messy.

"Words there of Beverly Eckert Kurt she lost her husband Sean Rooney. When the South Tower of the World Trade Center fell her recollection and others at the top of the segment read by actors those excerpts groups are courtesy of Simon and Schuster audio and are used with permission the from the new oral history compilation the only plane in the sky by Garrett graff freedom of the press is protected by the First Amendment in the US the same can't be said everywhere a new report by the committee to Protect Journalists ranks the ten most censored countries stories in the World Courtney Raj is CPJ's advocacy director. She says the three worst countries for censorship are tre North Korea and Turkmenistan. There is virtually no independent media within the country so the media that do operate in the country are essentially mouth pieces of the state and of the government. If there is independent journalism it's conducted from exile and we see that very few foreign journalists are allowed to enter there is very low internet turnout access and so it really is tightly tightly controlled and restricted information environment did those very facts of tightly controlling information in having no free press. Make it difficult to do this study. It does make it very difficult. It's hard to get information out of those countries but the fact is in Eritrea which which is the leading jailer of journalists and sub Saharan Africa. Many of those journalists have been in jail so long. We don't actually know if they are even still alive or where they are. Neither neither do their families. It's a virtual black hole. You've mentioned Eritrean North Korea and Turkmenistan top your list. What are the rest of the countries in the top. Ten following goes three is Saudi Arabia followed by China Vietnam Iran Equatorial Guinea Belarus and Cuba. These countries really are known as being highly surreal so Vietnam has overseen a massive crackdown on independent journalism which primarily takes place via blogging Iran for for example also tops the list regularly of countries that imprisoned journalists Cuba although it released many journalists who are in prison continues to engage in in a lot of censorship as well as maintaining very low levels of Internet access which restricts the public's access to information. I'm curious whether there are aspects access the digital age that make it more difficult for countries to crack down on information. There are aspects of it but I think that what we've seen is that the sophistication sophistication of censorship has really increased restrictions on internet have kind of expanded from being say based on you are L. Blocking two fullscale Internet shutdowns. We see a lot more sophisticated surveillance and hacking technology being sold to these countries. He's typically by either Western or Chinese firms. Why is it important to publish this list. It's interesting disturbing. But what do you hope happens by publishing this list but I would hope is to see some of the international community use their sway to help improve conditions on the ground in these countries what we are concerned about about is that if no one is actually held responsible for the brutal murder of journalist has showed she the Sunday journalist who was murdered in the Turkish Turkish consulate last year right that this could send a signal that it is okay and that you will escape international repercussions so that's why finding justice yes and cheating justice in this case is so important because of the demonstration effect. We don't want this to become a trend Courtney. Reg is the advocacy director at the committee to Protect Journalists Courtney. Thanks a lot my pleasure. Thanks so much.

"Eleven unfold from the International Space Station has resumed him with the camera. You can see the big cloud developing New York City and we were watching the second tower come down. I'm Carol Hills coming up. An oral history captures how we remember nine eleven on the world. I'm Carol Hills and you're with the world where a CO production of the BBC World Service W. G. B. H. in Boston. PRI NPR ex it's been eighteen eighteen years since the world changed forever on September eleventh with each passing year our memories fade a little bit more but hearing voices from that day can bring us right back to the pain confusion and chaos of that Sunny September morning other garrick graphs new oral history of nine eleven is called the only plane in the sky. It's a reference to President Bush aboard Air Force One. The only planes still flying after all. US commercial aircraft was grounded. The book is a timeline of September eleventh seventh told through brief first person accounts many intensely personal from airline workers government officials and first responders also people in New York in Washington who witnessed the tragedy on their way to work the sound was so deafening this high pitch sound and I didn't know what that was but it was so Irie like your fingernails on a chalkboard type of thing the loudest sound ever heard those are among the painful eyewitness testimonies read by actors in the Audio version of the book. Here's another recollection near the start of the book from Fairy Captain. His name is Peter Johnson. Just after the first plane struck the World Trade Trade Center he watched his passengers were filing off his ferry at Wall Street. Honestly I think most people felt it was navigation accident. The reason I say that is is are very continued round appear Levin Wall Street Terminal and we're about one hundred people on board every single one of them got off and went to work that morning and as they're walking off their envelopes and letters floating down from sky my colleague Marco Werman asked author Garrett Graff with that memory tells us about America at the beginning of the twenty first century his quote captures to me one of the most amazing aspects of trying to revisit and understand what that day was like for people to experience experience and it's just how innocent America truly was that morning you know we hear that nine eleven changed everything we say it sort of flippantly today a without really remembering just how different our country was on that Tuesday morning in September eighteen years ago every one of those commuters caught off the boat and walked into their jobs at lower Manhattan even as papers and envelopes fluttered down from the impact zone above and what it captured to me was this idea that so much American looked at that first crash on nine eleven and assumed it was an accident assumed it was a problem with the playing a problem you know a pilot having a heart attack a problem with air traffic control and of course this is just almost unimaginable to us today this innocence hence you you saw that video last month of the motorcycle backfiring in Times Square and everyone running for their lives. You know we hear a AH annoys today. Something Weird happens in a public place and we default thinking that it's terrorism that it's an attack that it's a shooting and that's just I really not where America was on nine. Eleven some of the testimonies from people you spoke with really convey also the helplessness of the onlookers. I wanted to hear Commander Frank Culbertson. He he was an astronaut on the International Space Station the only American as you say not on planet Earth that day and Culbertson here is describing what he saw appearing out of his spacecraft craft window and nine eleven as zoomed him with the camera you could see the big cloud enveloping New York City and we were watching the second tower come down and and travelling five miles a second New York goes across the horizon very quickly and it was a long ninety minutes to come back around and check out my country again and and it just it just really hurt I mean watching from space was probably the only way to get a bigger picture of that day he even saw air force ones one's contrails heading back to Washington because he said planes were grounded in the sky was clear as a bell a Garrett. We've already had extremely detailed explanations of why and how nine nine eleven happened. Why did you compile these accounts to me. It was trying to recapture the experience of nine eleven. I mean this year this anniversary. The eighteen th is sort of MARQUESA moment as the nation ships from the nine eleven as memory nine eleven is history. I mean you have the first college class us of students coming in born. After nine eleven. You have the first American servicemen and women this year being deployed to the war zones of Afghanistan on Iraq and to guard prisoners at Guantanamo Bay who were captured on battlefields before they were even born and we remember the facts ax of the day when nine eleven comes around but the facts of the day are in some ways less important I think to our national memory than the experience variance of the day because it really was the way that we experienced that day the way that America lived it coast to coast morning tonight that that drove so much of the decision making that came after going back to some of the testimonies Garrett you sat down with Andy Card who was chief of staff at the White House for President as in George W. Bush. I hear is Andrew Card reading his recollections for you of how he broke the news to the president who is visiting school in Florida that day. I decide the pass onto facts an editorial comment. I didn't want to invite a conversation because the president was sitting in front of second grade students in that classroom. The teacher asked the students to take out their books so I took that opportunity to approach the president. I whispered in his ear. A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack. I took a couple of steps back so he couldn't ask any questions chief of Staff F- Andrew Card there explaining what happened with him and the President Down in Florida when they heard the news I have to say some of these accounts. Garrett are a really tough to read it stuff. People May ed recall from two thousand and one but perhaps it was stuff that was just so hard finally had to turn away the time you have witnesses who saw some of those people's they went to work in the world trades but but were incinerated on the spot by fireballs after the first impact of the planes others got really severely burned and lived. Did you meet any of them and we're in the world are then. How are they getting on with their lives. Well I tell the story in the book of Wilh Meno Port Authority police officer one of only two people who were actually rescued from under the towers it was him and his Sergeant John McLaughlin only two people who survived from underneath the towers that day and will he is very forthright about the challenges that he faces in his life the long path that he has had back. He's has as you know the day that I beat. PTSD will be the day that they lay me in the ground now but you know he has the story that he tells about how yes he had two hundred and twenty stories of the World Trade Center fall upon him but at the same time really about how you respond due to the challenge that defines who you are and how you live your life wow that is some kind of perspective you also sat down with Colonel Mark Tillman who piloted did airforce. One that day here's Tillman reading his account from your book. I went down to the tarmac to see about having the plane refueled. The plane could carry fourteen hours of fuel. I wanted a full tank. It turned out we'd happen to park over hot refueling tank. They use for the bombers. The civilian is arguing with our crew says the fuel pits pits are only authorized for use in time of war and Air Force Master Sergeant God bless him over. Here's this and roars we are at war he whips out his knife and starts cutting open the cover ever that quote from Colonel Tolman sort of comes towards the end of the day you know the president was hustled aboard Air Force One in Sarasota they took off sort of flu flu around the southeastern United States and the Gulf of Mexico until they could find a safe place to land and landed at Barksdale Air Force Base and everyone gets off the plane and they are surrounded by armored vehicles and men with machine guns and flak jackets and sort of realized that in the time that they have been in the air the nation has gone to war that they are sort of landing back into a country that is forever forever changed and certainly an environment that has been dramatically changed. Your book includes many more accounts from men than from women. What do you think that is the the attacks hit the financial sector in New York the twin towers and the military centers at the Pentagon both sort of heavily Lee male industries and then many of the first responders are male and it is one of the things that sort of comes through in a lot of the the book to me is just how heavily males so much of the story of that day ends up being you met the people. Who gave these accounts for the book Some Years After nine eleven? I'm wondering with the remove of time. Can you start to see the gear starting to shift in their accounts. In terms of how how innocent they were and years later were not yeah. I mean one of the things that I really tried to capture as I was going back and telling these stories in their own voices voices was the story that we tell about nine eleven today is much neater and sort of seems cleaner than it was when we experienced it on nine eleven I mean we know that the whole attack takes place in just one hundred and two minutes from that first crash to the collapse of the second tower and that's not not how any of US experienced it on nine eleven. I mean well into the afternoon. We were worried about other hijacked planes. In the air. I mean there were evacuations accumulations and a potential threats and fears in Chicago and they closed Disney that day they grounded every plane in the country free and that we worried about follow on attacks. We worried about sleeper cells. We worried that there were more attacks coming later that day the next day the next month breath and that really we just didn't have a good understanding of what we were experiencing that day and trying to understand. I think all that has unfolded since I mean even up until this week. You know you have the Taliban peace talks collapsing a direct result of the actions that we took after nine eleven. We're still still living in this post nine eleven world shaped by the decisions that policymakers made out of the fear the trauma the chaos and the confusion that they lived on nine eleven author. Garrett graff has compiled the first comprehensive or history of nine eleven. It's called the only plane in the sky. Thanks very much for speaking with us today. Garrett thanks for having me. We're going to close with one more extra from the audio book the only plane in the sky this is Beverly Eckert. She's the wife of Sean Rooney who was working in the South Tower in New York City. We met when we were only sixteen at a high school dance when he died side. We were fifty. I remember how I didn't want that data end terrible as it was. I didn't want to go to sleep because as long as I was awake. It was still a day that I shared with Sean. He kissed me goodbye before leaving for work. I still say that was just a little while ago.

"How do you do that with three d. Printing we started with bioplastic plastic that made foam materials like corn. Ah Very fast we found its we don't want even the idea of plastic even if it's natural to being the water and the second thing is that the printing time was really really slow and when we moved to ceramics it was is much faster and much seems to as natural so the idea was to print clay with the natural material but also use. It's very flexible shape that gives us complexity and variety so we have like hundreds of components in each one is different. Have you tested it out underwater to see if it works yeah right now in the Resi the port of Latte we have have installed a one column of like thirty components like this ready one month after installation.

Coral Reef can replicate indicate what a natural coral reef does for the ecosystem. This is the thing we are not trying to imitate nature. We trying to instigate the nature so upon this constructions corals will grow and build the reef again. There's a debate in the scientific community over whether humans should attempt to build artificial reefs at all whether they're actually interfering with the natural ecosystem. How's is your project do on that score. The classic approach was to sink ships wrecks and airplanes and actually truly a lot of garbage to the sea and I think this kind of thing between naive and criminal idea yeah he's not valid anymore so our approaches to do it in much more simple and.

"Thanks for your patience but the welcome is blunt this going to be very very difficult to semesters eyes widen as the IGA faces digest. What will be expected of them? You're going to be doing a lot of presentations and pitches like like you're a startup but at the end of the day this is about people who desperately need help on the other side of the world and we're not playing around. It's for real as the professors breakdown the elements of this very unusual class a coal comes in it's one of the people on the other side of the world a refugee now in Greece Mohammed explains how he worked worked for the US military in Afghanistan and how he had to leave because of threats the students listen is wide. Some of jaws have literally dropped talked. Openly small lovely tiny daughter listening to refugees is what this course is all about out in fact these students will soon go to Greece themselves to meet asylum-seekers in person in refugee camps. It's all part of a new call. US's engineering school the brainchild of this woman. My name is Burton Bidder Gerber. I'm a professor at the civil and Environmental Engineering Department of Universal Stowe Sudden Co for now her area of expertise and engineering is how to make buildings better meet human needs but when the refugee crisis in Europe began Brazier Gerbeau was hit by a big question what if people don't have homes so she and her colleagues are asking students to help tackle this basic dilemma and Brazier Guba new that to do this. Her students would need to see the realities facing refugees up close. You have to be there to build empathy to be able to be in their shoes even for a week or two weeks. It's a new way of thinking about engineering and design putting words like empathy feet and failure front and center two of the most successful students reuniting after the summer break earn Roger Reggie package and applebaum part of the inaugural class last year. They ended up building a show which now sits in the courtyard by a water fountain wanted shower in the middle of campus like this. It's like this is our life. It's a portable shower. An idea that came only after they went to Greece to meet with refugees uh-huh and often many other ideas didn't work. We asked our refugee partners who resettled in Germany and Spain is hygiene a really big issue shoot the camp and they all confirm that it was one of the worst things there. The challenge was how to make a portable shower affordable. One of our first ideas is was a pop-up tent something with collapsable Poles for a frame and a tarp surrounding it picture one of those camping showers peck small pretty cheap brilliant right well. That was the first failure all of the women came back to us saying I do not feel safe showering in that in the camps showers known as places with sexual assaults take place men have sliced right through the top material while a woman was showering but after rethinking the showers design Appelbaum and Raja package landed did on a long slender blue wooden box so we really relied just on the design of these panels to provide almost all of the functionality the would pennells joined together like puzzle the pieces and held in place by military strength ZIP ties. There is no way a knife could slice through which means they target us a ariffin. G Woman or girl would actually use what they built. They now hoping to find a company in Greece to help manufacture the showers. I am a refugee. Ag I grew up as a refugee camps and when I saw this class I was like this is made for me. Omar is easy is another alarm from the cost loss g he he brought a first hand perspective as someone who grew up in refugee camps in Pakistan after his parents escaped the Taliban in Afghanistan so so when he went to Greece with his USC classmates he knew what life might be like for the refugees and I talked to a refugee who was very distressing. Jason was walking around and asking him hey can I help you and I spoke in Farsi with him and he told me that he has a asylum interview and he's very much concerned if he doesn't do well in that interview it's over for him and I told him to. You know there's a legal aid NGO. That's the main job is to help with cases through. He's like no and that was how he came came up with his idea for an APP centering all the information a refugee needs but can't access in one place while a kid who grew up in in a Pakistani refugee camp now studying at an elite. US College and designing an APP for refugees might seem like a very silicon valley take take on the American dream as easy is turning down jobs with top engineering firms because he wants to work on helping other refugees. I feel that I have the moral oral responsibility to give back and the humanitarian space in the refugee crisis need refugee leadership as easy wants to be that leader which is what he told the UN and Greek government representatives recently when he met with them to pitch his APP project and he's on his way to becoming that leader this year he's been asked to mental the current crop of students for the world be puffiness. Los Angeles a correction to a story worry. We aired yesterday. The Indian state of Kashmir has been under a communications lockdown for more than a month. This came after Kashmir's right to self governance was revoked yesterday. Today we said that the Internet and Kashmir back up we should have said there are sporadic mobile phone and landline connections in some areas. This is the world I'm Carol Hills your with the world. We report on this next topic a lot but we know that people don't always get it. It's Brexit when we hear British politicians and judges talking about the parliamentary procedure eyes glaze over each opinion expresses viewed the advice given by the government to Her Majesty. The Queen to Perot Parliament was unlawful way. proroguing parliament is unlawful since win win and what exactly is proroguing. It's a technical term for suspending parliament of course and is what Prime Minister Boris Johnson did but today a Scottish court ruled ruled that Johnson's move was against the law. One of the politicians behind today's challenge is member of parliament Tommy Sheppard. He's optimistic that next week the UK Supreme Court appeal. We'll also go his way. I put it better than fifty fifty that the Supreme Court will uphold today's ruling. What were you hoping to accomplish with this lawsuit. I'm talking to you from my constituency. Constituency in Edinburgh really ought to be in London in Westminster Parliament representing my constituents and I am being prevented from doing so by the Prime Minister Mr Boris Johnson because he is so terrified of criticism and being held to account by the elected parliament that he has decided if he can to try and just I suspended and be done with it and if he gets his way and parliament is suspended until the fourteenth of October then that means that Boris Johnson will have been prime minister for eighty two days and only on four of those eighty two days will parliament of being able to sit and ask him questions and that is a travesty of democracy. I mean that would be bad at the best of times but when the country is in the midst of a political crisis over brexit that desperately needs resolution. It's almost criminal now. Some are saying that the court ruling today in Scotland Means Parliament can go back into session immediately. Are you expecting to well. I mean I mean our view in the Scottish. National Party is that parliament should be immediately recalled the government. seems to be just a filibustering and saying Oh. Let's wait and see what happens at the Supreme Court it next week but the fact of the matter is that until and unless the Supreme Court overturns today's judgment then the government is acting unlawfully entered has unlawfully suspended the British pump or as Johnson seems to be if you forgive me taking something other that Donald trump playbook he just seems to think that if he if CBS he puts his fingers his ear and show La la La Enough and ignores people they will go away but what we've seen today is that the law of the land will catch up with him and we are determined airman to hold him to account. How is this whole brexit argument seen in Scotland compared to the rest of the UK while Scotland of course didn't vote for Brexit to May three and a half years ago people here voted it by nearly two-thirds to remain in the European Union and when you consider the most teenage voters and people who live here who were born in other European countries these were not allowed to take Pasha nut vote the strength of feeling behind being Europeans goal is even higher than that and in the three years since opinion is hard the fact that AH views are being ignored in God has given a lot of added impetus to the arguments for Scotland choosing a different path and becoming politically independent don't of the rest of the United Kingdom so that amongst other things we would be able to determine our own relationship with the European Union and the rest of the world and are now a lot of people ooh here in Scotland through five years ago voted to remain in the United Kingdom who are reconsidering that attitude and thinking that actually independence ended Scotland might be a better option after all now? The Queen is being dragged into all this. Why does that not sit well with Brits. I mean she's the head of state. Why shouldn't she said all this straight. Will I mean we have here this creaking set of constitutional arrangements. The Queen is the head of state and has certain roles within that I mean the fact five the queen is the person whose signature is on the suspension of parliament is sort of hides the fact that only happened because or is Johnson and the British government of the day a determined to make that happen and they advised her to make that happen. She doesn't really have much discretion when her first minister comes to her and says this is what I need you'd do I do understand the policy must be somewhat frustrated and irritated by the fact that they are being dragged into a very intense the debate here by a conservative prime minister who's determined to break all the rules.

"Border security responsibilities and they've taken on an increased cyber-security responsibility so I think it's definitely worth thinking about how we need to recalibrate recalibrate and perhaps reshape the Department of Homeland Security so that it can be more effective on those issues what's an example of a kind of new type of threat that that the administration and the government general has to adapt to well election security is a great example so we know we have it documented and plenty of information has been provided bided publicly through the special counsel report and through the information released by the Senate Intelligence Committee so far and they'll have more reports coming that there was a pervasive acidic systematic intelligence operation conducted by the government of Russia to influence our election. We know that threat took place. We know the activity took place. We know that existed in twenty the eighteen midterm elections and we know that it's a current ongoing issue and yet there has not been election. Security legislation passed by Congress. There is not a whole of government approach led by a White House to focus on that issue the director of National Intelligence the Prior Nash Director of National Intelligence. Dan Coats had announced a election security initiative initiative and he was forced to resign several days later. If another nine eleven were to happen tomorrow. What would you be most concerned about in terms of national security. Well what I'm most most concerned about is that the government and the leadership of the National Security Apparatus is well positioned to be able to prevent something like that from happening today and leadership matters and the fact that we have no Senate confirmed heads of the director of national television's the principal deputy of national intelligence. We have an acting head of the National Counterterrorism Center. We have an acting head of the Department of Homeland Security so we have an acting assistant to the president for national security all of these leadership positions nations matter because they press on the bureaucracy to do its job aggressively and so what I'm concerned about is a leadership vacuum in national security right now carry very cordeiro is a fellow at the center for new American security. She also teaches at Georgetown University Law Center. Thanks a lot Kerry. Thank you who gets to come into the United States. It's a question the White House is weighing the trump administration has already dramatically cut the number of refugees allowed into the US. It's now considering cutting adding back the number even further even slashing the number two zero that would mark a huge policy shift. That's been in place for decades under both Democratic and Republican administrations in stations joining me. Now is the world's immigration editor Monica Campbell Monaco. It's a pretty dramatic shift. If that happens I mean can the president do that. He can do this. It's his determination to set the cap for the refugee community. What's interesting. Is this refugee policy. These quotas for refugees refugees coming in. It's a program that goes back about forty years and some of the people who benefit are people who assist Americans in time of war in other countries. Absolutely I mean we're speaking on September eleventh. It's interesting to note that President Bush and George W Bush George W Bush rush after nine eleven didn't attack the refugee program in fact it was sustained at seventy thousand underbush seventy thousand people allowed into the United States. The idea was that for example in Afghanistan people who worked with the troops with the military have been a part the system. What is the current number of refugees being allowed in. It's currently set at thirty thousand that was already though an historic low monica. What does this mean for refugees around the world this is part of an ongoing push by the trump administration to essentially block block certain people from certain parts of the world from entering the United States whether they are asylum seekers at the US Mexico border war more refugees with the current administration. It's already been tough because the numbers have been slashed dramatically if it gets dropped zero that that will have family split up around the world as a result of this type of drastic change in US policy the world's immigration editor Monica Campbell Campbell.

It's a somber familiar ritual that happens every September eleventh less than a month after the terror terror attacks eighteen years ago the US and its allies unleashed fierce air strikes on Afghanistan and the phrase global war on terror was born but nearly a generation ration- after nine eleven.

There is a multitude of threats there are national security the threats that pertain to terrorism that are evolved from the ones that we faced many years ago but there also are additional threats and so it's not that the old ones have gone away but they have been compounded by new ones and what has changed in terms of the apparatus and tools to respond to those threats and prevent anthem from being actual attacks in the US Congress acted since nine eleven to create entire bureaucracies to do a better job to protect the country so that include clued the creation of the director of National Intelligence.
