"And the bite administration is really focused on a group of about 16 Senators, eight Republicans, eight Democrats that they think could be the sort of moderating force of consensus in the Senate to get this bill and many others signed into law. NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis thanks to you Welcome We're still learning new information about the people involved in the attack on the Capitol on January 6th. One trend that has alarmed military leaders is the number of veterans who appeared to have taken part of the insurrection. By NPR's count nearly 20% of people charged in connection with the attack and rioting. Our veterans, NPR investigative correspondent Tom Dreisbach is here to talk about what we found. Hi, Tom. Hey, Ari, so begin by giving us a new overview of your findings. Well, we took a look at everyone we could find who's facing criminal charges in connection with the attack on the Capitol on January 6th. The charges run everything from curfew violations to unlawful entry of the Capitol grounds. Theft of government property weapons charges, assault. Among others, and anecdotally, we have heard reports about a number of military veterans among the people who were involved in some way. We knew, for example about Ashley Babbitt, who was killed by police while climbing over a barricade the door inside the Capitol building. She was an air Force veteran. You might have also seen photos of a guy inside the Capitol, wearing a military style helmet, tactical vest and carrying flex cuffs. Well, federal prosecutor said. His name is Larry Brock, and he's an Air Force veteran. And so what we wanted to know is exactly how big is this group. And as we said the numbers close to 20% almost one in five people put that into context for us. How does that compare? For example? The overall percentage of veterans in the U. S. Yeah, about 7% of all adults in the U. S are military veterans, according to the Census Bureau, so that proportion of that's among people facing charges is quite a bit higher. But there are close to 20 million veterans in the country. Overall, it's a large, very diverse group of people, especially the younger generation, and the vast majority we should say, do not get involved in extremism. But of course, this is still a problem. Is there any way of quantifying how big a problem this is in the armed forces and among veterans? Yeah, I mean, our colleague Tom Bowman reported that last year, the FBI had notified the Defense Department of 68 investigations of current or former service members in connection with possible domestic extremism. Also a survey by the military Times last year that found about a third of active duty troops, so they had personally witnessed white nationalist activity in the military things like drawing swastikas or getting white supremacist tattoos. I talked to Mark Mark Pitcavage of the Anti Defamation League about this and he said, You know, so far, the military's efforts to combat extremism in its ranks have largely been haphazard. So an extremist discovered in one unit on one base over here, they're meeting prompt action taken. The person may be very quickly administratively processed out. Very similar extremists and another unit on another base somewhere else. Maybe nothing is done. Pitcavage says. There really needs to be systemic training throughout all the services, so everyone knows how to identify a problem and what to do once they spot it, and the Biden team has said that rooting out extremism is now a top priority for their administration. Tom. This problem has newly become apparent, but But is it a new problem? No. I mean, we've known that some extremism groups, extremist groups like the oath keepers, for example, they have specifically targeted veterans for recruitment over the years. And the concern is that military veterans often do have specialized training, which can make a tax more deadly. You know, some experts point to Timothy McVeigh, who killed 168 people in the Oklahoma City bombing years ago, he was an army veteran. And so the stakes can be high. But you know, we should say among vets, you'll also find really strong resistance to extremism to the police officer Brian Sick Nick, who was killed that day at the capital, defending it from the mob. He was also a veteran, and he served in the Air National Guard. NPR investigative correspondent Tom Dreisbach. Thanks a lot. Thanks. Sorry. To Iraq. Now that is where more than 30 people are dead and dozens wounded. After a double suicide bombing today in Baghdad, the bombers struck a crowded market on a busy morning from Baghdad. NPR's Alice Fordham reports. The attack is all the more shocking for Iraqis because lately they had enjoyed relative security. As evening falls after the attack, People gather the site of the bombing in downtown Baghdad in a street off the main square, They murmur prayers,.

States political and cultural divide have been filmed exchanging punches beating one another with sticks and flagpoles or standing face to face with weapons often with police appearing to be little more than observers. One anti-defamation League historian described the state of the Union. This way we're not just a polarized society. We're increasingly confrontational society last Wednesday while leading our weekly prayer Webinar for the church in the nation Bishop Garland Hunt tackled. That most of us have right now is that even possible to find ratio healing in a nation that so deeply divided his answer to that question was about as biblically grounded as any I've heard so far you can come to breakpoint dot org and Click on this commentary on link you to a video of his presentation only the church hunt set has the path to healing or another way to put which should be obvious to everyone by now no other institution in our culture is offer any real way forward one that can deal with both the sins of our past and the conflict of. Our present, only the church if not the church then who we start bishop on said by morning with those who mourn the African American community of which Bishop on apart is in mourning, he reminded US and racism in any form he also reminded us is rooted in pride that makes it fundamentally a spiritual battle as Paul told the Fiji we don't Russell against flesh and blood, but against rulers against the authorities against the cosmic powers over this present darkness against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places, those forces are at work anytime there is dehumanizing injustice in any form including when peaceful protests. Become indiscriminate violence as we've seen. So often in recent months, and that's why if the church is to be the church, Christians must have a world that's big enough to understand that in this case neither politics nor policy can offer any long-term solutions. Only the Church has the resources of reconciliation in particular the church carries the effect of weapons of prayer and repentance approaching God in prayer as Bishop Hunt reminded, US, begins with dying to our own agenda to what we think we know to whatever would give us a superior attitude over anybody else echoing Paul Hunt said, we've all seen black and white in. Our attitude toward one another our hatred are unforgiveness. The black community is mourning and he said must appeal to the Lord to get rid of unforgiveness to get rid of hatred to release people from the past and to love unconditionally and the white community needs to repent for a lack of sensitivity. A lack of willingness to even care that there's something going on in the black community in unwillingness to even speak out on racial injustice and in the most important thing I think he said Bishop Pont said the racial thing is not going away unless the church grabs hold of the cross like never before. As he went on to pray and his words sounded so much like Nehemiah 's were sorry because the church has not been the example it needs to be we've been part of the problem we've allowed ourselves not to care were sorry for the sins of our nation were sorry we haven't forgiven and then echoing the words of Jesus and John Seventeen Lord. Let it be that the church can be one even as you in the father are one

Report Slams Facebook For 'Vexing And Heartbreaking Decisions' On Free Speech
"Facebook has made quote, vexing and heartbreaking decisions about free speech that is, according to an independent audit. And how the social network handles issues such as discrimination, hate speech and election interference. Facebook asked for this investigation two years ago. Today, the investigators are slamming the company and its leaders for some of their decisions for this week's Alltech considered NPR's Shannon Bond joins us and before we get going, I should mention Facebook is a financial supporter of NPR. Hey, Mary, least alright. So investigators slamming decisions by leaders of Facebook. What decisions are we talking about? This is really about speech, and the most prominent example is President Trump. So recently he's put up Facebook posts falsely claiming that voting by mail is rife with fraud, and he made a really inflammatory post about the recent protests against racism. The auditors say Those post clearly violated Facebook's own rules against voters depression inciting violence, But Facebook didn't take the post down. The audit also slammed the company's policy of not fact checking ads by politicians that something Facebook has gotten a lot of criticism over and over all, the audit says, You know these decisions really emblematic of how Facebook has chosen to prioritize free speech above all other values. They say that risk over shadowing games it has made fighting discrimination, for example, that no longer allows advertisers to target housing and job ads based on age, gender or zip code. What is Facebook say in response. Well, the company, as you said, didn't ask for this audit A commissioned it from Laura Murphy of former Sulu executive and a civil rights law firm and chief operating officer. Shelves Cheryl Sandburg said today that Facebook will make some of the changes that it's recommending. Including hiring a senior vice president, who will make sure civil rights concerns informed decisions on products and policies. But when it comes to setting firmer boundaries on political speech, that's something CEO Mark Zuckerberg has resisted. He says Facebook is committed to free expression even when politicians make false claims. And Facebook says it won't adopt every recommendation being made in this report. Now this audit drops as another development plays out all of these brands. I think we're more than 1000 now pausing their advertisements on Facebook in the name of protesting hate speech, or any of them are the organizers of that boycott. Are they speaking up today? Yep, And what I'm hearing is a lot of skepticism about Facebook. Here's Rashad Robinson. He's president of color of Change, one of the groups behind the boycott. The recommendations coming out of the audit are good as the action that Facebook ends up taking otherwise. It is a road math without a vehicle and without the resources to move, and that is not useful for any of us. Another boycott organizer I spoke with today is Jonathan Greenblatt of the Anti Defamation League. He told me he thinks the boycotts just going to keep growing and remember, it's already gone Global until Facebook takes real action on their demands. Yeah, it sounds like we now have this damning audit this big boycott pressure from for many directions on Facebook to change its ways. That's right, and civil rights groups told me they're not going to ease the pressure on Facebook. I spoke to Benita Gupta, She's head of the leadership conference on civil and human rights, and here's what she had to say about the audit. It is a work in progress clearly and pour. In some ways it is. Starts and not a finish for the civil rights community. Gupta and other leaders. I spoke to you know, they say it's just so urgent that Facebook act now because the presidential election is just a few months away. That's something the auditors also say they're really worried about. They say it in the audit. They say a Facebook doesn't get more serious about enforcing its policies, holding politicians to the same standards as other users. That will open the door to more voter suppression even calls for violence on

"Slash appear. Oh, okay. So back to the statement from Facebook, they say again that they've always been individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate as I say, the violence standard is vague. And then they're conflating violence in hate. So people saying bad things is not the same thing as people issuing calls for say murder. I should know this because as news have reported. There is a person who was arrested this week for for making violent death threats against Jared Kushner, and Donald Trump junior and has made violent death threats against me and against my employees. Hey, this this person was engaged in a level of criticism. That is not the norm. That's why this person has been arrested right now. Thank you to law enforcement for doing their job. There's a vast difference between that and people who just say bad things about me. You say hateful things about me. And they're plenty of people who say hateful things about me on a regular basis. There is a vast difference between people utilizing their free speech in ways that I don't like I get hit by more than I was number one target of antisemitic bile in twenty sixteen according to the Anti-Defamation League, the number one target. I never filed a police report with any of this. If I know the difference between people who are spewing hateful garbage at me and people who are actively threatening my life. There's a difference between violence and hate this difference between speech and violence. No matter how much I dislike the speech. So that's a distinction that Facebook seems to be obliterating. And then finally, they have no hard definition as to what? Hateful. So this is completely arbitrary now. It's okay. Well, basically, what it feels like is that Facebook came up with a list of people that they wanted to ban who were anti left. I don't want to say they're on the right? Because again, I think that the right is a somewhat confusing terms. Sometimes when I say, the right, generally, I'm talking about conservatives when the press uses the right? I mean, people who are anti left. I don't think that those are the same category of. People. There are a lot of people who are anti left who also happen to be not conservative anti-conservative, one group of people who seem to be anti-left, but also are not conservative. Anyway, are white supremacist, for example, are anti left because they don't like multi-culturalism, and because they they're racial supremacists. And all of that. But they're not conservative because they don't believe in government. They don't believe in the values of western civilization. They scorn Judeo Christian values. They scorn the idea of freedoms in the constitution. But those people are anti-left, but they're not conservative the media will consider them. Right. So for purposes of the media's terminology, the people who they are banning many of them are on the quote, unquote. Right. They really need anti-left left. But they've kind of through Farrakhan in there. So they could say, listen, we're not biased you're throwing Louis Farrakhan too. But the fact is that again, none of these people said anything new the got the man Facebook is simply deciding that they want to people that they consider hateful now. I may even agree with some of the people who they consider hateful again, I've been personally targeted by several of the people on. This list. But that does not mean that my definition of hate is the definition of hate that is legally applicable. It doesn't mean that my definition of hatred from everybody else's definition of hate. There really is too much play in the joints here. Nine thing that Facebook wanted to issue rules say you're not allowed to call people certain names, for example, he can't call somebody the N word like having a clear definition of rules. How about that? That's that's pretty much all that people are asking for and Facebook refuses to grant that instead they wished to go after people along vague standards, and those standards do not apply. Equally to everybody coming up. We're gonna be talking about Facebook's, supposedly.

"The Anti-Defamation League maintains its own statistics. And last year it reported that nine of the twelve physical assaults against Jews categorizes hate crimes in New York state. We're committed in Brooklyn and involve victims were easily marked as members of traditionally orthodox communities. So in other words, pod save America crowd doesn't actually care about any of this stuff because it doesn't fit the narrative, and that's the reality only when if it's in there is anti-semitism thing. And when it's when it's a Muslim shooting up LAX at the counter and killing a member of my community. Then it's not a big thing when it's people being targeted for hate crimes by folks of minority bent, then it's not a big. When it's a white supremacist, then it's a big thing because we can link that's Republicans and try and proclaim that this is the big problem across the country. Now, again, I have never underestimated the impact of white supremacist anti semitism. It is a serious problem for Jews. It is not the only serious problem for juice or even the predominant problem for Jews in the country when it comes to anti-semitism. Okay. Time for a couple of things that I like, and then thing that I hate so couple of things that I like I've been doing. Jewish Naganuma, which are sort of prayer tunes yesterday.
