Warnings over Trump inquiry fly between Pompeo and Democrats

"The breaking news of the hour is a letter signed by three House Committee chairman to the Deputy Secretary of state responding to a letter earlier in the day by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in which secretary pompeo attempted to block blocked testimony from current and former State Department officials the letter tonight says dear Mr Deputy Secretary we are responding to a letter sent earlier earlier today by Secretary of State Mike pompeo attempting to block testimony from current and former State Department officials sought by our committees for depositions as part of the House of Representatives impeachment inquiry. We are writing to you because Secretary Pompeo now appears to have an obvious conflict of interest he reportedly participated personally and the July twenty fifth twenty nineteen recall in which the president pressed Ukraine president to investigate the son of former Vice President Joseph Biden immediately after Ukrainian president raised his desire for the united its military assistance to counter Russian aggression sanitary pompeo should not be making any decisions regarding witness testimony or document production in order to protect himself south or the president any effort by the secretary or the department to intimidate or prevent witnesses from testifying or withhold documents from the committees shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the impeachment inquiry given the secretary's own potential role and reports of other State Department officials being involved in or knowledgeable knowledgeable of the events under investigation that committees may infer that he is trying to cover up illicit activity and misconduct including by the President present this would be a blatant cover up and clear abuse of power that letter to the deputy secretary of state tonight follows a report by NBC News. It was tonight that the Inspector General of the State Department has made an urgent request to brief several congressional committees tomorrow about documents related to the State Department and Ukraine according to multiple congressional sources the request from the State Department's Inspector General comes on the same in day that the head of the State Department Secretary Mike Pompeo sent a letter to the House Foreign Affairs Committee saying that he will not voluntarily make make available five current and former department officials for depositions by the committee one of the witnesses that the House Democrats want to hear from has already agreed to appear for deposition on Thursday Kurt Volker resigned from the State Department last week and therefore is no longer under Mike Pompeo's control in this matter. The pompeo letter does highlight light one point that might be part of the discussion that the State Department's Inspector General urgently wants to have with the congressional committees. The POMPEO letter says quote the invitations the committee sent to the department officials include requests that each of them personally produced a vast amount of documents these requests appear to a duplicate the subpoena that was previously served on the Secretary of state the requested records constitute the property of the Department of State and are subject to restrictions on the unauthorized disclosure of classified information in various executive branch privileges. The pompeo letter went on to say that the committee is asking the witnesses to to quote produce materials that are not theirs to produce the Inspector General of the State Department is Steve Lennox who was appointed to that position in twenty thirteen by I president Barack Obama the inspector general would like to meet with the staff of the House Intelligence Committee the Senate Intelligence Committee the House Foreign Affairs Committee decide Foreign Relations Committee as well as the House Oversight Committee and the House for Raisins Committee the Senate Appropriations Committee. This is an extraordinary question includes democratic staff and Republicans staff. This is a request the likes of which that I for one is a former. Senate staffer have never seen or been party to and fortunately tonight. We are joined by guests to have much more experience than I do. In State Department matters and intelligence committee matters. We'll be joined later in the hour by a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee Senator Kamala Harris who is now a candidate for president secretary. POMPEO's letter blocking the testimony complained that State Department lawyers should be allowed to attend any depositions positions by Congress State Department employees but tonight's letter from the three house chairman to the Deputy Secretary of state says the same rule has been in in place for more than a decade under both Republican and Democratic Chairman of the Committee on oversight and reform and it was in place during Secretary Pompeo's tenure on the Benghazi Z. Select Committee the regulations that Govern House deposition state witnesses may be accompanied by personal non-governmental council to advise them of their rights only members committee staff designated by the chair or ranking minority member and official reporter the witness and the witnesses Mrs Council or permitted to attend observers or council for other persons and Putting Council for government agencies may not attempt the chairman's letter to the deputy secretary of State says the rule is intended for exactly these types of circumstances to prevent the agency head with an obvious conflict of interest in who is directly implicated in the abuses. We are currently investigating from trying to prevent his own employees from coming forward to tell the truth to Congress the three Chairman Adam Schiff the intelligence committee the Foreign Affairs Committee and Elijah Cummings the oversight committee. Tell the deputy secretary of state it is a criminal violation punishable by fine. Mine are up to five years in prison to buy threats or force or by any threatening letter or communication influence obstruct impede or endeavour to do so the due due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either house or any

"I came to Congress I decided to make tobacco my issue we had some successes in order in nineteen eighty seven in my third term in the house second term on the Appropriations Committee I successfully passed appropriations amendment banning smoking on eighty percent of airline flights in the United States it was a minor it was a major miracle no one expected this young congressman from Illinois with the opposition of both Republican and democratic leadership to pass this measure on the floor what they fail to understand is the house of representatives is the largest free could flyer club in America and they were sick and tired of secondhand smoke on airplanes and voted with me the bill was signed into law by president Ronald Reagan despite big tobacco fighting all the way they called my band quote an intrusion on individual rights you may hear echoes of that in this room today it was just the first step I didn't realize that eliminating this inconvenience was a tipping point but it was it turned out that a lot of people thought well of secondhand smoke is dangerous on a plane what is the dangers in a movie theater in a restaurant in a bowling alley we also went on directly after big tobacco's efforts to adopt children which is why we made cigarettes more expensive with taxes that is the single greatest deterrent to children turning to cigarettes we dump Joe camel and the Marlboro man as part of a national lawsuit with prohibited kid friendly flavors and cigarettes like strawberry and grape and since these historic changes the percentage of youth smokers declined from twenty eight percent twenty eight percent in the year two thousand to less than eight percent today however anyone who believes that the multi billion dollar tobacco industry would go quietly ignore the power of their greed and that's why we're here today losing their precious market share big tobacco put their researchers and markers to work first they needed a new product the didn't Kerry the moral taint of cancer causing tobacco even better if it looked like USB flash drive could easily slip into a kids laptop they needed a campaign that included an unproven positive health claim such as Jules current make the switch slogans they relied on a multi billion dollar twelve point eight billion dollar investment from an old standby L. trivia formally known as Philip Morris they needed a

empire mushroomed and metastasized unfortunately the FTA FTA is been happy to service that accomplish delaying commonsense regulation of the E. cigarette industry by years refusing to move remove illegal products on the market and standing silent in the face of these false health claims by jewel I made it clear to the acting FDA commissioner doctor Sharpless and commissioner got leave before him the FDA's helpless spectator ship has to come to an end whether by law regulation court order or discovering the political will to get off the sidelines so what's been the result of big tobacco

"appropriations committee" Discussed on Freakonomics

"So took a little while for everybody to figure that out but that that was a fictional surplus. Secondly, I never had a single conversation or debate with the house appropriations committee or congress frankly both parties where they were for less spending than I was ever. There were some circumstantial changes. There was that little thing called nine eleven followed by the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, and that required some spending that everybody agreed on. But, but you know, wasn't forecast before I went to the National Press Club not too long after that happened. And I talked about you know, what Harry Truman did when he decided we had to engage in the Korean conflict, and what Franklin Roosevelt suggested doing, namely, if you have to spend money on national security emergency you stop spending money. Elsewhere, congress didn't buy it. Well, let me ask you this. You were in charge of of creating forecasts for the cost of a potential war in Iraq. And his I've read you've put that number in the roughly sixty billion dollar range the ultimate cost was actually in the eight hundred billion dollar range, just Iraq. I'm glad you brought it up because we'd been some misunderstanding or and kit. K K -cially some very big misrepresentation of that I'll let chance and I wanna get any corrections. But really the larger question I want to ask is this. It strikes me that a lot of US policy tax policy spending policy. And so on is a result of these sort of accidents of history wars often whether preventable or not I think back to World War Two, and how that changed for many many many many years techs policy in the US. It also changed for many many many years continuing to this day the way our health insurance is set up connected to employers, which was not the case in in. Most other countries was not the case here is I understand it before World War Two. So I guess what I'm asking is. It's a little bit like, you know, the famous Mike Tyson, quote, everybody's got a plan until you get punched in the mouth, and I'm curious to hear your assessment of how your plan stands up in a world where these things do happen and through all the plans out the window. Well, this question let's go back to the front end. Just get that taken care of when the. The president made the decision to go to Iraq. This wasn't in anybody's budget. So there had to be what the it's called a supplemental appropriation Bill. Congress loves these by the way, cause they generally become an opportunity to serve as the Christmas tree and put other things on there. It was a supplemental appropriation for a specified time. The question was how much will it cost to defeat? The Iraqi army and to stay for six months in the night of the planners of the fought was that's all you'd have to be there. You win the war stabilize the situation. Turn it over to somebody leave now, oh, Embi is not war planners. We didn't decide to go to war, and we didn't plan the war. But someone having done that our job was to produce the best estimate. We could the answer that question. It turned out to be pretty darn accurate. In fact, I think it caused a little less than that. If someone had asked what caused the beat the Iraqi army stay for ten or fifteen years while you've gotten a very different. Answer. I argued during the time it'll Embi that natural disasters are going to happen. We have history. And now congress doesn't fund those I said when we every year fund, what looks to be an average amount.

"Five partisan agreement has been reached in principle by two goals from Republicans and Democrats in the house and Senate from the appropriations committees of those both the house the Senate and both parties to avert a government shutdown that would have to get to the president's desk before Friday at midnight. There are ways if you need to extend funding for twenty four hours you can do that without having to face a shutdown. We don't know entirely. What is in this deal? We do know that the funding for new border wall is there. So there's funding for new border, walls, or whatever you wanna call them. They call it Bollard Fizi. That's the big steel slats fifty-five miles of that the president could accept this. And then along with it say if you don't fund it when we're done with those fifty five miles. I'm going to go here for more money will explain that to you as well. Certainly he could reject this and say this again, it's not I wouldn't sign this. I'm not going to sign this. We want to get your thoughts on it. One eight hundred six eight four thirty one to this people are calling in on that. I have to update you on on congressman Omar's hypocrisy and her doubling down really of her antisemitic remarks. I'll explain that here. You know, she said all about the bid Jamin, so why is American politicians support Israel, and she used that antisemitic trope it's all about Jewish money, and she doubled down on that did not apologize on her own which she had the opportunity to. So she got condemned by the democrat leadership who called her to apologize. Here's the condom this Cape from Iraq to we were on the air yesterday. Actually. So it was boiling avoiding I think Nancy Pelosi realized she had to do something her statement is not so bad. I mean, speaker Pelosi majority leader Hoyer, the majority whip Clyburn assistant speaker Raila Jan. The caucus chairman hockey Jeffries caucus chair Catholic, basically the entire House Democrat leadership onto statement. It says anti-semitism must be called out confronted and condemned whatever it is encountered without exception. This good. We will always be strong supporters of Israel and congress because we understand their support is based on shared values and strategic interests. That's right. That's a good way of explaining why the United States has such a strong relationship with Israel is that against shared democratic values, especially the reason world where there's not much of that and strategic interests. So it benefits the United States as well Tevin ally like Israel in that region. They allow for they said legitimate criticism of Israel's policies are protected by the values of free speech at democratic debate that the United States and Israel share share. There's people in Israel that disagree with the government that doesn't make them less Isreaeli. And you could do that it is an American elected official. But as I say congresswoman Omar's use of antisemitic. Tropes and prejudicial accusation about Israel's supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks so strong language there, we call upon congresswoman Omar to immediately policies for these hurtful comments as Democrats in his Americans the entire congress must be fully engaged denouncing rejecting all forms of hatred racism prejudice discrimination wherever they encounter. Okay. So strong condemnation. And what did they ask for their to policy? Well, congress Omar she responded. Okay. So the first part of response is not so bad. She says, and this is our statement anti-semitism is real, and I'm grateful for Jewish allies colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of antisemitic tropes, again, this idea that she doesn't know about that history, and she's elected to congress and on the foreign affairs committee of all committees is kind of unique, but we'll save that for a moment. My intention is to never fit my constituents who are mostly Somali Muslims or Jewish Americans as a whole that's fine. We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism just as I expect to hear people to hear me when others attacked me for identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize. Okay. So you think the statement went in there, right because she says equivocally apologize this issues with that opening statement. I think you can dissect what that would people attack me, you know, trying to shift the issues, but she doesn't stop. She writes, I unequivocally apologise maybe need a grammar lesson. Because usually if you want to quickly apologize, you leave it there. No. She doesn't at the same time. This is in her words at the same time, I reaffirmed the problematic role of lobbyists and our politics. Whether it be pack the NRA or the fossil fuel industry. She doesn't say Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry or other leftist causes that are also active in our government processes. And so in her apology, she doubles down her attack on the largest pro Israel group in the United States and the most bipartisan. And then later re tweets a comet attacking APEC and Jewish. Money's control of American politics later later on last night. So she's doubled down on her same criticism that she was called out for. So we believe at this point. Joining with other groups that she must be removed by Nancy. But first of all in the re tweet she attacks the tweet that she sit out also attacks Nancy Pelosi. So if this is really the speaker of the house in the leader of the Democrats in the house of representatives, the people's body, she should remove congressman, Omar, at least from the foreign affairs committee where she can get classified briefings on the Middle East, for instance, at a place where she is even understand. And we said it so many times on this broadcast. I mean actions have are louder than words, they have more consequences than words, and I would look at two people first of all congressman Omari. I'd like you said part of that apology. The words were fine. But her action speaks so much louder. They demonstrate an anti semitic bias, and it has a fracture are lines with Israel that shouldn't be accepted by either party in those actions dwarf her words as for s for speaker Pelosi and the democrat leadership Jordan, there is an action that should be automatic here. It looks to me like they're just trying to get political cover by getting in extracting this apology from the congresswoman, but Jordan, we talked about this in the break. The fact that the congresswoman sits on the house foreign affairs committee gives her a disproportionately large voice inside her party on US foreign policy. That's just simply not acceptable is speaker Pelosi and the rest of the democrat leadership mean what they say Jordan, and they say that her views are out of line with their party, then they should not be affording her that seat on the committee. They need to follow up. Up their words with actions and remove her from the committee, and quite frankly, Jordan, I think on the political point. You're also right about the the front to leadership. I think if this happened inside either party on basically any issue, but this one and a member of that party confronted the leadership in this kind of disrespectful way. I think the consequences would be swift. And they need to be in this case, you have comments on this will take them at one eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten and wanna play Steve Scalise? Then we'll get back to the the the bipartisan agreement potentially. I think we may come back to Omar issue as well because it's still developing she decided after that fake apology to double down on her attack on a pack, which she did by re tweeting someone attacking APEC and attacking Nancy Pelosi. So you would think Nancy Pelosi would take notice of you may hope this kind of gets covered up in the news of is going to be shut down is their budget deal. We're not going to allow that. And that's why I say we'll come back to it. I'm also watching we're watching closely. What congressman Omar saying? What is Nancy Pelosi? Get a say in response if any. Are they going to try to just let this go which I think is what they hoped would happen after the apology. But it wasn't a real apology. Not accepted congressman Omar you have to do better. And so does Nancy Pelosi, and this is not really a partisan issue. I mean, I think if you're a democrat you'd want and supposed to take swift action on this. Because again, you allow this you're going allow this very if you really believe this is such a horrible viewpoint. Why are you empowering them while they're while they're still poking you not Republicans we going after the democrat leadership? Let me play Steve Scalise. This is the GOP whip in the house of Representative here. He is take a listen. Think about this right now, she sits.

"Thousand people missing another paycheck. No phone to their own. It could have on. Our economy. Nobody is going to win out of this on Capitol Hill. I'm Natasha Chen reporting. The president says if no deal is reached by February fifteenth again, he'll either shut down the government again or consider a national emergency declaration. And there are a number of laws as we outlined the other night at least four under which he could declare such an emergency. And the probably the courts would even go along with him in that regard. We'll talk about that in this portion of the program tonight and looking at what the president has as agreed to do it. It certainly would seem first and foremost to be shall we say not terribly Trumpian in its approach the president. Of course, was the first to come forward with suggestions of some kind of a deal that might involve the dreamers the deferred action for childhood arrivals and got exactly no movement from Nazi. Pelosi or Chuck Schumer. And now he has agreed to this in that there will be what the Democrats had demanded and into the shutdown first. And then the discussions which will take place presumably the three week period till February fifteenth will be. Perhaps a prod to both sides to do some movement. Although you you have to wonder the extent to which the Democrats may feel that they can get anything. They want. We'll we'll have to see that remains to be seen. But oh, by the way, you if you're wondering about the state of the union address scheduled the course for next Tuesday night and the logical assumption, of course, would be well, the shutdown is over. So it can go ahead since everybody homeland security secret service capital police everybody had already been planning for next Tuesday night. Well, that's not the way it's going to be. We do not know when the president's state of the union address will be, but we know that it won't be this coming Tuesday night. But at some point, we're not sure if it will be during the three week grace period, or after that the latest state of the union address has ever been given was February twelfth that in the last eighty five years earliest January third. So there's a timeframe when this is traditionally given, but it's not like January twentieth for the presidential inauguration or January third for a new congress. Convenience nothing cast in concrete in the constitution. So the present state of the union address could be anytime it could be in the middle of August Laura's that goes it's only tradition that it'd be at the first of the year or he could send a written message. Although certainly modern presidents in general and this president in particular are not likely to pass up a chance for that particular speech. So my guess would be that you'll probably see the state of the union address with some time in the three week grace period, especially if there seems to be progress from the special committee, which has been appointed by the Senate to begin looking at some kind of compromise deal on security. Now sitting on this particular committee will be Republican senators Richard Shelby of Alabama Shelley Moore Kapito of West Virginia, ROY blunt of Missouri. John Hoven of North Dakota and democratic senators Patrick Leahy of Vermont, dick Durbin of Illinois, Jon tester of Montana. Shelby is the chairman of the Senate appropriations committee. So they are going to be working. And we can only assume that they will be doing so with some degree of urgency. Whether that means this weekend or not that is not at all clear. But certainly I would think first thing Monday morning, they will be working on this and the real question. Now, of course is obviously whether or not the principals in this have really stopped digging in their heels this has never been about Monday money, rather, we've known all along that in the lexicon of federal expenditures five point seven. Billion as the president wants or one point three billion for border security is the Democrats last offered these are tiny amounts. It's not about the money. It's about who is is boss. If in fact, the Schumer's and Pelosi's and trumps of the world have let it be known that they will back away from previous positions that you could probably get some kind of a deal somewhere in the middle of that two or three billion bucks. Probably which would simply be a somewhat smaller down payment of the wall that about the president had originally wanted, and you might see this process move forward in the final analysis. It'll be interesting to see whether or not the Democratic Party complete phobia about the w word a wall is really going to to stay. We've already had of course, even before the shutdown ended the number three House Democrat, James Clyburn of South Carolina. Because there they'd give the president the whole five point. Point seven billion. He wanted for border security, but no wall, no wall. I have suggested it may be my suggestion met tongue-in-cheek should be seriously pursued that we should call it the Fridley fuzzy journey inhibitor, and we should cover it in pink velvet. Whatever it takes to make Democrats happy this phobia over a word has really reduced this to the level of complete. Childish stupidity. In that regard. But whatever whatever it takes for them to decide that. It's okay. If we act you defend our borders, we will see anyway for the moment, the shutdown is over the Trump administration is saying that they will move to get workers their paychecks as soon as possible. However, wanted ministration spokesman has clarified that say that every agency handles the paychecks on their own. So while there will be an effort to pay people quickly. But how fast you get paid? Let's say at the FBI may differ from how fast you get paid at the coast guard may differ from how faster get paid someplace else each agency will handle that. So that's where we stand at the moment. One eight six six five zero JIMBO is our number. And we'd like your thoughts about this. The president is insisting that he did not back down. It was not a concession. It would be easy certainly for the Democrats to crow. They have to an extent crowed a little bit. We've been hearing that from from Chuck Schumer actually more than than anybody else in that regard. But it hasn't been I suppose excessive crowing, so we'll just have to to.

"You are. I'm Robin young. I'm Jeremy Hobson it's here. And now so what? Now, President Trump is meeting with lawmakers on Capitol Hill after hammering his case last night that he will not agree to reopen. The government without a border wall. Senator Jon tester democrat of Montana joins us. Now. Senator welcome thanks for having me, Jeremy. So the president made his case for the wall. The Democrats made their case against it. Not a whole lot new from either side where does this go now? Well, well, first of all, I just want to say something about the president's speech. And that is if you had been paying attention to what's been going on you wouldn't have known. This was about the wall by the president's remarks. I mean, he talked about everything for the first three quarters of that speech except the wall. And I think that's significant because the wall is the biggest increase amounts even wants five point seven billion dollars. He originally requested one point six, and by the way, the appropriations committee in the Senate agreed to that one point six billion. But that aside, I think where we go from here is hopefully, we can reopen the government while we negotiate on something that makes sense for border security for the southern border the challenges with a wall are obvious in that the threats tend to change, and I think we need some analysis done on what the best way is to move forward. I think what we're dealing with right here. Jerem is as a campaign promise that now the president feels like he has to build whether it's the best for security for this country or not. Well, what do you think about a wall? The house speaker Nancy Pelosi has called it immoral. Do you think that there's just something inherently wrong with any funding for any kind of wall? Or would you be okay with some? Well, look, I think there's over six hundred miles a wall on the border right now. And I think there are some places where a wall does make sense. I will tell you unequivocally a wall from seat assigning see is not the right direction to go a wall that we spend twenty four to thirty two million dollars per mile. I think we can do much cheaper with technology and manpower and make the southern border much safer. I think we consider all the possibilities. That are out there to make sure that our borders are secure. I think we address issues like the visa Overstreet, which is why we have so many undocumented folks in this country to begin with and talk about common sense ideas to secure the border in make sure that that border remains secure your state of Montana went for President Trump by twenty percentage points in two thousand. Sixteen. What do you tell people there? I'm sure that you have a lot of constituents maybe even people who voted for you and him who want the wall. Well, I think one thing that Montana's all agree on whether you're Republican or democrat is they want money spent appropriately. And I think that's the challenge. Here. We have not been given any analysis on what the best thing to do for security for the southern border. And and I think that most Montana's would say, you know, what a wall, she see the signing. See is not something that can work and work affectively. And and I really believe that Montana or some that want to build a wall. And there's no doubt about it. But there are a vast majority that think that we can do better by using other options that are much more cost effective. We've seen some stories about some cracks forming in the Republican party in the Senate that some Republicans are coming over to the democrat side. It's let's open at least most of the government while we figure this out. Do you see that yourself? Well, I think it's. Government shutdown is ridiculous. And I think the the thinking Republicans out there saying, this is truly ridiculous. Let's open the government. What we've created here. Jeremy truthfully with with this government shutdown is I think we've allowed the bad guys to look at us from a different standpoint customs and border protection TSA, they're all working without pay. That is not a good for our national security overall. I think there's a lot of Republicans that are saying enough is enough. Let's open the government, and and then listen to go.

"Appropriations committee chairman Richard Shelby told reporters he didn't think that Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell would put a Bill on the floor to fund the government unless he had assurances from the president. He'd signed the measure sands wall funding, but you never know said Shelby. The instincts of the Alabama Republican were spot on you never know with President Trump. What is past is prologue the White House signalled, Mr. Trump would grudgingly signed the Bill? The presence oscillation is reminiscent of March back then the administration negotiated an omnibus spending package with congress and. President Trump promptly threatened a veto wants the house and Senate pass those measures. He ultimately signed the Bill into law, and that's what teed up the current standoff with the speakers lobby. Chad pergram, Fox News. This is FOX on Justice.

"O'clock. Thanks to Lisa. It's tuesday. It's December the fourth and runs saint-pierre now tomorrow, there would be no mail delivery. There will be no trading on Wall Street. It's a national day of mourning the passing of president, George H W Bush. So what does that mean in terms of this potential government shutdown? Joining us now is Michael Barr from our twenty four seven network. How does it impact that morning? Michael. Well, what we know is that the government shutdown is at this point in time seemingly put on hold in some part due to the death of George H W Bush. This may be the last technical bipartisan civility effort that. The now past president is able to be a part of avoiding and averting this government shutdown for at least a week and possibly even to. So yes, you're correct. The post office closed you're gonna see certain elements of the federal government closed for tomorrow. But that is all a part of the morning process over former president, the reality is as far as the government shutdown was supposed to be going Friday was the deadline for finishing on the federal budget. That's what we're looking at this upcoming Friday. However, the house committee that writes, the annual spending bills announced on Monday that legislation had been filed to keep the government running until December twenty first Senate appropriations committee also confirmed that that was the date and spokeswoman for the house committee says lawmakers are expected to pass a temporary spending Bill later this week. The Senate scheduled to have votes on on Wednesday. Also. Oh expected to approve the measure, otherwise if we don't get this thing taking care of here in the next couple of days, the department of homeland security, the IRS the Commerce Department and a few other federal agencies are going to have to furlough workers in non critical position starting on Friday. So there's just a couple of days here to get this done. And technically that pushes any real hardcore discussion about what may go on for government funding the wall, the President Trump wants the five billion dollars with a B worth the funding for that wall. And where they're able to possibly meet or just create another extension that you've got right before Christmas. You're going to have those discussions. You know, we look at it and people label at a quote partial shutdown limited in scope, but those agencies you just mentioned they employ over six hundred thousand federal workers. Absolutely. We're talking about big agencies here, we're not talking about relatively small agencies. We're talking about you know, you've got department of homeland security in case we've missed out on that. Or haven't thought about it for a week or so that's what President Trump says there's? Major concern down on the border, and that we need to be taking care of other people that are trying to make their way over the border will that's one by the department of homeland security, and then you've got the IRS then you've got the Commerce Department. You're talking about really big agencies that may have to be furloughed if they don't get this deal done. President Trump seeming to say that it doesn't matter to him. He wants the funding for his wall. And he's only got a limited amount of time before the house turns to a democratic majority. So he feels like he's got to try to get this done before the first of the year when the house officially takes over in January. Okay. Michael Barr from a twenty four seven that. We're Michael you gotta run. I have a great morning to eight minutes after seven o'clock. President Trump's top economic advisor yesterday said that the White House wants to end subsidies for electric vehicle purchases.

So after lashing out on Twitter at the automaker's plans to close plants and cut thousands of jobs Kudlow, however, didn't provide details on what the White House would do to eliminate or change the electric car tax credits, which would require an act of congress.

"Join our regularly scheduled program already in progress, which would be that no one outside of India would be able to get a green card for between six and eight years. And then after that seventy five percent of the green cards could go to India. It's great for India, but sucks for the entire rest of the world. And you imagine what would happen if suddenly the Irish find out that they can't get a green card for six years, and one of the effects is that in some occupation categories. They will not be able to hear in cards at all. So for example, the restaurant industry is going to be screaming. I can't get a green card for French chef. And so this is a giant trainwreck? What has happened with this Bill is it was sponsored by Kevin Yoder of Kansas who became the chairman of the appropriations committee this summer, and he promptly slipped this Bill into the budget. So. The summary. Here is that we have a Bill with the most radical change in American immigration policy in the nation's history that's been pushed entirely by foreign interests has had no hearings has had no press coverage of its effects has been slipped into the budget Bill, and so people this is what we'll call it a train wreck in the immigration system. And we'll just suddenly find out about it. If the Bill gets enacted, how is center for immigration studies, helping get this messaging out so that the Bill can slow down. It can have a review it can have a process by the American people to understand it. What is CIs doing? We'll see. Yes, we write about these things we've written about what this Bill does CIs dot org website. You can find a writings to describe exactly the effect of the Bill would have. Unfortunately, congress hasn't paid much attention to it. They just let this thing. Go on autopilot. What will be the upshot if they continue to let it go on autopilot. Now, we're going to have a lot of mad countries. India will love it. They might be mad at India to right? It'll be it'll be literally a train wreck in the immigration system. No one will be able to get a green card a glistening from India. And right now, you can get a green card for most for most countries in the world. You can get a green card directly. You don't have to go through the guestworker system. I, but this will change it. So that everyone has to get into the guest worker system each won't be guest system before they can get a green card. Let me move on. I don't even want to think about that train wreck. But that'd be very interesting to watch as it as it goes down or not let's move on win. Molly Tibbets was killed tragically stabbed to death presumably, and we wanna say allegedly because he hasn't been convicted yet, but VHS and other federal authorities say that he actually did it. Some people wonder if he had help he said he was knocked out or blacked out. So one wonders if there might be friends of his acquaintances buddies of his at such that might have helped in all of that. But nonetheless, there wasn't a lot. Talk about the e verify that this young man slipped through where are we with the demand that e-verify happen at every employment? Doorpost we're basically nowhere on that. It hasn't. Nothing's been advanced in a long time with with e verify the reality is we know that there's a huge number of people working in the country who are working illegally and they're being hired by employers. Who would rather not know when we'd rather have willful ignorance on this? Her death is another as I've said from time to time brick in the wall. What do I mean by that? I mean, just like Kate Steinle was a brick in the wall with more and more Americans dying at the hands of illegals, whether it's murder accident, some kind of manslaughter, maybe it's just DUI. Maybe it's speeding. Maybe stabbing. Maybe it's with gun. It's another sign that a brick needs to go to make a wall. But what? What I hear more sanctuary cities abolish ice in those signs are all over the place, especially in an election year. The police are terrible. We are a global world borderless society. Do you think more Americans will become more bricks in the wall to make the wall or the wall will never be made and the illegal immigrant flow will just continue to happen? And whether we like it or not were borderless nation with no sovereignty group. Eventually, we're going to go towards the bricks in the wall side and the election of Donald Trump. I think is one of the key signs of that. The people are tired of the open borders system that the Trump made immigration central issue of his cam- campaign. And now and you'll see surveys immigration ranking among the top issues of the voters because people are more more seeing how immigration policy fix their lives. Like in my down. My front yard is. Latrine for the illegal alien pickup joint. Okay. My front yard is the gathering place where the contractors come and pick up illegal aliens for work. And so it naturally comes latrine dumping area. And so people like me pay the cost of illegal aliens. Meanwhile, the rich people who were hiring people to do their lawns. And enjoy advice work. They get the benefits without suffering. Because other we've seen is in the higher end in employment visas, one of them was the we've might have mentioned the H one B guest worker visa, the H one B guest worker visa is for people in college educated occupations, patients, it will generally choir college degree, but congress has designed the system to replace Americans with cheap foreign workers in that's the purpose of the program of the sugar coated with descriptions like that we have a shortage of American workers, and we need highly skilled workers to fill jobs that Americans can't do. But that's not what congress and. Acted and people are shocked to discover the commerce's made it legal replace Americans with foreign workers. Disney was the best publicized example. But this is going on since the mid nineteen ninety s since we all get tenuously and the press ignores it, and it's a great mystery to me why the New York Times covered the Disney because it's been going on so long, but we got no of got no per media attention of this really travesty of the law. And so the public is more and more discovering that there that the system does not work for their benefit another side of this that when we have discussions on immigration would hear politicians talk about immigration. You don't hear them say, we're we need an immigration system that works for the average American citizen. We don't we don't hear them say we need a racist system.
