Mall of America Security Asked Man to Remove 'Jesus Saves' Shirt
"Ball policy forbids picketing demonstrating soliciting protesting or petitioning on the premises of the mall of America. They need to rename the ball. I mean, if you're not gonna let somebody walk around the ball, wearing a Jesus saves T-shirt or remember back in, I remember back in the 90s, it was all the rage in the Christian churches to have the clever messages in the T-shirt, so it would be like a Budweiser can, but it wouldn't be a Budweiser cannon, it actually said be wiser instead of okay, maybe that's only the baptist church tradition. So anyway, I mean, if they're gonna do that, they may as well just rename that instead of the mall of American, maybe the ball of Fallujah. Or the ball of Baghdad, so anyway, they're given the guide the what for and telling him that he can not wear that shirt in the mall. The man the security guard told the man, I'm giving you a couple of options. You can either take your shirt off and you can go to Macy's and you can do your shopping or you could leave them all. Well, those don't sell life very good options. Anyway, they went back and forth and it turns out that the mall said they finally did allow them in to continue his shopping. But a lot of Christians around the country, this story is sort of gone viral on social media. And a lot of Christians are very offended by this. And they say there's no way this should be happening in America. The guy has a right to free speech to where that shirt. And freedom of religion to practice his faith in the public place. Yes, but I will say that. I mean, the mall of America is not a public place. It's a private mall. People are allowed to go and shop there, but again, I just don't see what's terribly offensive about the T-shirt.

"And Thomas slaughter of thousands of innocents and ultimately the destruction of America. It's a race against time. Let me think where you might have got the idea for this book from. I can't imagine. I think it was a trip to Disneyland. But yeah, no. I had the genesis for this story was one day, I was walking back to my hooch from the chow hall. And during that sitting with some other guys, I'd heard that there had been another suicide on the base. And I was aware of an attempted homicide at another fob forward operating base. And I thought, wouldn't it be interesting if a retired detective, such as moi, was brought in to help with a multiple victim homicide investigation like a ten little Indians kind of thing. Agatha Christie kind of mystery. And I brought that idea home with me and quickly decided that that wasn't the idea I wanted to go with that I wanted to make it an international terrorism story. And so that's what it is. Well, did your wife have questions about somebody in your position and nurse Nancy major Nancy? The doctor? Who's this doctor again? Hey everybody, I read the book and I'm telling you right now highly recommend reading this book. It's an easy read. It's a quick read. It will keep you interested. It's a nice plot in there. Thank you. Some surprises that I'm not going to tell you about, but you need to find out about nurse Nancy. Well, doctor. MD. Major doctor nurse name. Major doctor. Well, was major doctor a major problem when you got back home? No, an actual fact. No. It was not. That was obviously that was all fiction. There's a lot that did happen to me that is in the book. Many of those things did happen to me. I did get Saddam's revenge, and I did meet a doctor. And she called it bubble guts, but she was, that was as far as it went. She was a lovely person and very funny and very nice, but that was, so there were a lot of things. There's a lot of the book that was drawn from my own experiences there. But it is a novel. I was just wondering that when your wife read the manuscript, she said, honey, you got some

"First of all, what the hell is that? I'm not translated up here as well. That's not up here. But so there is a, but you're working a lot of that though, but it's very unique though, because as you move forward in time, what possessed you to say, hey, there's a lot of bombs going off. There's a lot of shooting going off. A lot of bad things happening over in this place. Oh, it's called a rock. I'd like to go to Iraq. I mean, once you get down on a typical afternoon in LA, not quite the same. It's definitely not quite dangerous in Iraq, isn't it? Yeah. Actually, yeah, the four O 5 freeway is definitely more dangerous than a rock was. An actual fact of the thing was I was nearing my retirement. And I was looking for something to do and I wanted to stay in the game. And I wanted to go to town and see the elephant, basically. I wanted to go to the belly of the beast. And. For me, Middle Eastern terrorism has been something that was or terrorism in general was basically something that was happening a lot of the time in other places. And I kind of wanted to get a sense of what it was really all about up close and personal. And so I applied to this outfit and was accepted. Well, anytime this outfit, all right, let's be, what can you say about this outfit? Because I know one of the ones is called jaito. That was the one of the ones dealing with IED stuff. So were you DoD where you I see where were you at? Well, I was. No, I was embedded. I got to be careful with you. You're a trained interrogator. No, I was embedded with IED defeat intelligence cell in Baghdad with tenth mountain. Yeah. And funny you should mention that too, because that's jaina was the organization. I was talking about the joint IED. And I knew some defeat in that was a huge, I mean, tell us people, you know, just reground us on why that was such an important mission because why was that such an important mission? Well, because I believe I don't know the statistics, but I mean, certainly from the anecdotal evidence that I saw, most all of the casualties were being produced by improvised explosive devices, whether there are HME homemade explosives or repurposed artillery rounds or mines or stuff that came in from other places. All of it. And when you look at when you look at the evolution of vehicles in that war, they start out with soft skinned. 1151 humvees. And you end up with up armored humvees with doors that are 6 inches or three inches thick and glass and all kinds of other stuff. And then and also V hold mine resistant vehicles mraps and germs and all of those things. And all kinds of other stuff countermeasures that they had to prevent these weapons from being detonated remotely. One question for you Gary, you mentioned DFP and we asked that you describe all your acronyms there. And I don't know if you can do my swerves and read the book. It's in the book, actually. No, but an EFP is an explosively formed projectile. And it basically utilizes a copper plate that is cone shaped.

"Format. So give us feedback, hop on to Facebook. I'll tell you where all those things, the Twitter, the Instagram, just let us know what you think of the format. In during our break, we actually had some interesting discussions about some things around intelligence and counterintelligence and stuff like that. I mean, there's just some interesting stuff out there. We're swapping books back and forth. And so yeah, there's just some people do stupid shit, which makes your job interesting, right? Especially when you decided that you wanted to go. So let me ask you this. What made you decide or how did the process come about? Because you went to you went to Cal DoJ in 94 and as we were talking, we were sharing names and we have a name in common edman. And so Steve, when I was showing my work down at U.S. DoJ on information intelligence sharing, one of the reps we had from California was from Cal DoJ. And Ed manavi and so Terry gill, tell him Gary, who was Edmund avian to you. Well, Edmund avian, when I first met him, he was a supervisor at B and E in riverside. And he's a character. He's a pretty funny guy. He's a great guy. And after 9 11, the attorney general Bill Locke here decided that California needed its own organic counter terrorism intelligence collection organization and so he tapped Edmund avian to be the chief and Ed tapped me to be the task force commander to stand up the task force in Southern California. I had Monterey to San Diego. So a lot, but he's a great guy. He's a really good guy. And so we were just talking about the small one. I mean, we're sorry. We were talking about it's a small world, right? We're all related by 2° of separation. I may not know somebody, but I know somebody who knows you or et cetera. It's amazing. And it sounds like it was kind of, I don't know, I'd say this, that you patterned it after NYPD, New York PD, but they got agents or police officers stationed all around the world. They've got ulcers in Israel. They've got them in the UK. We even had one of DEA special operations division permanently assigned there. And it's a great tactic. Well, you know what? I mean, when you're a city, the size of New York with New York is a center of gravity for the United States. Los Angeles is also but New York is a center of gravity for the United States in terms of the economy, et cetera. You have to do these things. You have to put, as we all know, intelligence is the key to combating terrorism. And you got to have people out there. You can't just sit around and wait for crumbs to drop from the federal agencies. You've got to get out there and LAPD is also been historically very aggressive in intelligence collection and analysis also. And they have presence outside the borders of the city of Los Angeles as well. They had people in D.C. and at the national counter terrorism center and other places. And I worked with MIP intelligence division a couple of times. And I got shown around the city by one of their detectives, which was great fun.

Uh oh. That sounds just the title that sounds pornographic. Victim was struck in face with ten pound tube of beef. This is sounding more like a video shoot that went bad. Ohio woman. And by the way, this happened in south Euclid, Ohio population 21,388. Ohio woman yesterday copped to clobbering a female acquaintance in the face with a ten pound log of ground beef. During a confrontation in the potato chip aisle. And the Walmart. Apparently attacking her with a log of beef. So. According to police, Garner was at a Walmart in south Euclid when she would encountered victim, precious Jackson, who was shopping with her 7 year old daughter, Garner was accompanied by her 5 year old son, Jackson, who had lived downstairs from Garner in a university high duplex, had previously secured a protection order against her ex neighbor will apparently folks, let me tell you, protection orders. That aren't worth the paper they're written on. So cops say that when Garner, the suspect confronted Jackson in the Walmart potato chip file, she threatened to beat up Jackson and her daughter. She then pulled down Jackson's face mask and attempted to spin on her and when that didn't work, she reached into Jackson's cart and removed the $22 meat log. I like the way they call it a meat log. They describe the tube of ground beef as a blunt object. Ten pound one object. Offshore I just had a date go bad. My date tried to assault me with a blunt object. Garner investigators charged struck Jackson a couple of times in the face with a ten pound log of pre packaged ground beef. She was arrested at the scene and a relative to cuff theater son.

"Experienced, to provide a better life that they never experienced. I love this country and if you don't like it, get the hell out. And I'm gonna tell you this right now, that's the difference between the left and the right, the left wants to complain and hate the United States of America. The right wants to love and fix the United States. Us talking politics, not because we hate our country. We love our country. We want it to go back to, you know, you can have an opinion. You can go get reasonable food and beverage for not a $1 million. You can go pump your gas and not spend your whole paycheck, right? We want to go back to shutting your borders down so people can't just walk over and do whatever they want in your country. It's not about hating our country. We love our country and we want it back to where it should be, which is the greatest frigging country in the world, right? But what's scary is that now they're open and honest about their hatred of America and being socialist and running for office. I mean, there are democratic socialists who are New York State senators who run and that party label every single year. And what's dangerous is that it's gone from rhetoric to politics and governance, or they're an office now. And we've seen the kid, consequences of that since Joe Biden's been in office. America, are you better off? And the answer is absolutely not. And it's not even close. That's the worst part. You're not better off and it's not even close. I think we'll wrap it right there today though. That was a lot of good clips. I know, I get so fired up. I get so damn angry. I know. Because again, my personal experience with my family, going through hell to come to America. And these people trash our country. They hate our country. Well, fine. Go live in Venezuela, North Korea, China, or anywhere else you want. Just don't impose that radical socialist ideals and governance on me or our great nation.

"It's just going to go away. I don't think they care. Again, you print more money. It's exactly what they've done and Albany, Washington, D.C., the solution is tax the rich, demonize your opponent, raised taxes and hope that a future generation deals with the mess that you're making. That is literally their mindset. They don't care. And we do. Like, we genuinely care about making sure that our kids and grandkids have a better America than what we inherited. Like, we genuinely believe that. They don't give a damn. Folks on the left, especially these radical socialists, they care about power and politics more about people. I guess I look at it. When I say that John Moore speaking about the voter, right? The democratic voter, like you have to understand. And again, like you said, are you that selfish? You don't care about your family and your grandkids and I don't have children yet. I care about what happens to my grandkids. That's like a hundred years away, right? But the point of building a business and getting yourself out there, making money and it's to provide for your family, potentially grandkids, whatever, great grandkids. I guess I look at the liberal voter and I ask the question, do you not think about this stuff? Is your is your financial freedom and your children's financial freedom and your grandchildren? Is that not important to you? Because if you actually think the printing money is a real answer, you're out of your freaking mind, but they're losing their minds and they're doubling down on their playbook. It's a classic democratic playbook at what they do every single time. They are deathly afraid and they're going to lose the House and Senate. So it's the same playbook they've had for generations. They're wrong on issues. They can never argue the merits of issues. What do they do? They try and scare the hell out of people. It's what they do every single election cycle. They'll people with fear or the anger that if you vote Republican, I've heard in a million times, they're going to kill your grandma. They're going to cut social security. There is going to be, you know, riding and looting in the streets. This is congressman Jamal Brown, our next clip. He actually said an actual Civil War could break out if Republicans win in the midterms. It was also emboldened Republicans and the far right and white nationalists across the country to begin to believe that it is their time to not just take power in the house, but the Senate, The White House, and state houses across the country, and we got to understand that this is a group that has been radicalized by the great replacement myth and many other things and have been pushing for violence and pushing for evening Civil War. They're doubling down. They're doubling down. And you know more about this than I do, I think. This great replacement theory that they throw out, they're like, Tucker Carlson's the biggest great replacement there..

"And that's what I saw even as a former media member. The indignation and the righteous anger from her perspective, our White House press secretary to say how dare you ask me that question. Because she was more shocked and media finally asking about the president's health than his actual health. It was, I can't believe you asked me that. You're not allowed to do that because you're on our side. And they view media, the Biden administration, Democrats, they view the media is on their side. They're one of them. And they're flabbergasted that they're being questioned about their policies or the health of the president. I do feel like at times too though, like that's their kind of their shtick. Like, let's just joke about everything and laugh, right? 'cause she kind of did that there just like Kamala does when kama was pressed. She just kind of makes a joke and giggles, right? We've said it for years. Even Biden does it, right? Like you hear Biden with his little chuckles or he'll just start yelling or whispering or like they can't give an honest reaction or an honest. They can't act like an honest person, right? When they talk to the media or anybody, it's like they have to turn into this different weird, it's like nervous energy. I guess that's the best way to say it. Is that what it is? We'll look at AOC. I mean, she was asked on CNN basically the same question like, okay, if Joe Biden runs again, he'll be, you know, a 197 years old. Would you support him in 2024? You mentioned the chuckle. Here it is and listen for yourself. You know, if the president chooses to run again in 2024, I mean, first of all, I'm focused on winning this majority right now. And preserving a majority this year in 2022. So we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, but I think if the president has a vision and that's something certainly we're all willing to entertain and examine when the time comes. She laughed. She did and she also stammered around and I saw an article on my other day was perfect. In 67 words that she used in that whole segment there. It could have been one simple word to save us that whole spiel she just gave us. Yes, I would like the president to run. Yes, simple. Or no. But you know, in her case, there's only one answer for her. But that would be, it would be simple. Yes, or like you said, no. That's it. They have not been able to answer that question yet. And I think the problem, you know, a clip of AOC reminded me there was a member of Congress who had a conversation with very recently. And they said, when AOC won her race, that they were just sitting and it was a Republican just sitting in the House chamber, this individual turned to their left and they noticed that AOC was also.

"You got 14 million in net worth. It's easy for you to say $20 a guess. Let them eat cake. Yeah. Yeah, I mean, it's good to the point where you can't defend this guy anymore. I don't care who you are. A celebrity, a poor person, a white person, an African American person, a straight person, a gay person. You can't support this guy anymore. It's a typical limousine liberal from ain high where they think that they know best. They can think for us, they know bass. It's no different than, you know, when Richard Nixon won the race for The White House. It's a classic story of all these upper crust limousine liberals in Manhattan the next day shot that Nixon won because they said, you know, I don't know a single person that voted for him. Well, no, because you're in your little liberal bubble and you think that the world thinks the same way that you do. Well, you're wrong. And every American is feeling the pinch and no matter what, they can argue about Donald Trump. The Democrats will have hell to pay in the midterm elections and in the 2024 race for the presidency because the economy has gone to hell in a handbasket. And I think it's, you know, it's not just one or two things anymore, right? It's everything, right? The economy is terrible. I think people are starting to feel like wait a minute, this guy said he was going to unify us. We have shootings every day. We have, you know, issues with police still, right? We have issues at the border. I mean, nothing. Nothing no matter what your beliefs are as going right. But that's why stuff on, they're trying to play the, oh, the abortion argument, right? Oh, guns, right? That's insurrection, right? Like those are the three things. That's all they have. It's the typical playbook though, and it's not going to work this year. It's just not. And that's why I think Republicans, you're going to see a massive red wave. I know the Supreme Court is about to rule on the abortion issue. We've got issues when it comes to gun control, but it's not going to matter. At the end of the day, kitchen table issues will rule the day in a midterm election or a presidential election in 2024. It's how much are you spending on gas? How much are you spending on groceries? How much credit card debt are you racking up? That's why the Democrats lose because they're going to be desperate to talk about January 6th, guns, abortion, fine. I say let them. A lot of conservative Friends are really concerned about wait a minute. This could turn the tide. Nope, no tide is going to be turned. And also, too, the thing about this, we also have a lot of comparisons, even want to compare states, New York State and Florida, especially during COVID. New York State shut everything down, force jabs on certain workers, fired nurses, fired healthcare professionals, shut everything down, and it destroyed our economy. And where did everybody go? For the most part, Florida. Yep, Ron DeSantis kept everything open. I don't believe there's a state tax in Florida. And folks that move from New York to Florida, you automatically increase your net worth 10% because you're not paying that state tax. Yeah, and again, I think Ron DeSantis took COVID and takes a lot of things like a logical human being, right?.

"Left wing members of Congress would give them a free pass. And no matter what, they would still win elections, but it's not happening. I mean, they're even still going back to their old playbook and it's going to be clip number three where they're still blaming the former president. You know, when George Bush left office, for years, everything was George Bush's fault. Everything was George Bush's fault. And there's still no, I could not believe it when I heard this clip and I'm thinking, okay, we got to put it at the top of the show because the nerve of the Biden administration to basically say that this is all Donald Trump's fault. Let's listen in clip number three. We have to remember where this country was more than a year ago when he walked into office. The economy was not in a great place. A schools were closed businesses were closed. We didn't have a comprehensive COVID COVID strategy yeah, I remember where the economy was. Do you? I was going to say, wait a minute though. First off, you did. You did create the strategy for COVID. It was shut everything down. That wasn't Donald Trump's idea of things. His idea was to stop travel from certain locations. His idea was not to show the country. That was you guys. That was your comprehensive strategy. That's what's so funny, and I agree with you. The economy was obviously much, much better than it is right now. And by the way, people forget, coming out of COVID, you know, when I say coming out of COVID, like most of us did, you know, in 2020, but there's a lot to still in it, really. But coming out of that first few months, the economy came back fairly quickly. Believe it or not, like you would think with that, looking at that, I'd be like, oh my God, two years, the economy must have been terrible. It wasn't. It came back in the summer and the fall of 2020. And if you look at sales tax revenue across New York State, it was up significantly when stores started opening again, the economy was moving, which meant a lot more revenue for local governments, local municipalities, because that's usually shared at least an Arctic in the Woods with school districts, the whole 9 yards. But you want to say, okay, remember the economy we inherited. We'll look at it now. Right. Inflation at a 40 year high. Gas prices up 50% in one year. Groceries up 12% in one month. Americans are spending an extra $160 per month on gas. Restaurant price is up 7% milk, up 16%, chicken, up 17% eggs, up 32%. And Mike have I talked about this on the radio Saturday Stefan. Gas two years ago and I know it was a COVID year, say what you want. Fine. Was $2 and 20 something cents. Biden and June of 2020, it was at like $3 and 40 cents. We're now at $5, right? Like, people forget, we're not just comparing Donald Trump comparing to Joe Biden's first year in office. That's the other thing. Inflation up 3% over the last 12 months or 3% plus, right? Consumer debt from when Trump was president June of 2020 compared to now in June of 22, consumer debt up 14 times the amount that Donald Trump at it. It's unbelievable. That's a big deal. Facts are stubborn things. Everyone's an entitled to an opinion you're not entitled to your own set of facts. And I think you can ask any American are you better off now.

The National Review Was Wrong About Kyle Rittenhouse and Nick Sandmann
"I was talking about how national reviews at the Kyle rittenhouse story wrong. They also got Nick Sandman wrong. Oh yeah. For their top editors, we're sniping at and denouncing Nicklaus salmon within minutes based on a few garbled minutes of CNN footage, which we're as propaganda. I again was one of the few people speaking out within minutes of in defending Nick salmon's right to constitutional free speech at a political rally, which is what the march for life was. Turns out he didn't even speak. He didn't even do anything. He just stood there. Standing while white, while pro life. But David French again was attacking Kyle rittenhouse as basically irresponsible and reckless, you know, young man with a gun had no place being there. And it struck me. David French was fine with 17 year old Americans handling rifles as long as they were in Iraq. As long as they were protecting a foreign country in a misguided war based on lies and propaganda that George W. Bush sold us. David French was all up for that. In fact, even when served as a military attorney in the green zone of Baghdad, which, of course, was safer for an American than living in Baltimore or any other blue city. But David French got his veterans credentials for political purposes by serving as an attorney in the safe little enclave of the green zone. But actual soldiers were taking actual risk with their lives in that war for no reason. Son of mosaic had nothing to do with 9 11. There were no weapons of mass distraction.

It is what it is so Kevin mccarthy i promised in the we're gonna talk about the portland Uh courthouse briefly. Here is Kevin mccarthy on the kovin relief bill but also every american should be able to go back to work back to school and back to health the other thing that he's going to do he's going to sign a bill.

Let me just point out three things which are hardworking taxpayers monies. Going for you are now going to provide bonuses up to twenty five thousand dollars to government employees and bureaucrats. If you're not part of the swamp you get nothing. You're now your money's going to pay for illegal immigrants. Healthcare your money also is being sent to san francisco city will. Your money will be spent giving alcohol and marijuana to the homeless. That is what that bill is doing and two thirds of the money for the schools. Don't even come forward to twenty twenty three and there's a trillion dollar still sitting there from the five bills. We've already passed. This is a waste of money. Less than nine percent is going to cove it. This is a payoff to pelosi's political friends. And if she's if they're gonna go around and try to get momentum behind the one point nine trillion they should go to prison because Prisoners are getting some money for this too so that should be great. I wanna talk to grind. But where's that money coming from. Its you're hardworking. Tax payer money every american should know it. You just got a bill for twenty two thousand dollars.

Sorry transition here. So you know about you guys but if i could get a deal where i could send people bill for twenty two hundred bucks or twenty two thousand dollars and i do send them a check for fourteen hundred bucks if i could send you a check for forty. I wouldn't do it to you but you get the idea. I could send a fourteen hundred dollar checks with twenty two thousand dollars invoices. i'd. I'd do that all day wouldn't you.

But also every american able to go to work back to school and back to help the other thing that he's going to do he's going to sign a bill. This for me ask you about Assaults on federal property places washington dc portland for instance seattle do you regard assaults on federal courthouses or other federal properties acts of domestic extremism domestic terrorism. Well senator my own definition of about the same as the statutory definition is Use of violence or threats of violence. an attempt to disrupt democratic processes so attack on a courthouse while in operation Trying to prevent judges from actually deciding cases. That plainly is Domestic extremism domestic terrorism Attack simply on government property at night or any other kind of circumstances is a clear crime serious one and should be punished. I don't mean. I don't know enough about the facts of the example. You're talking about but that's where i draw the line. One one is both are Criminal a one is a core attack on our democratic institutions. And so the hit. The standard articulated by merrick garland was whether or not there are. People inside is what he said. So last night in portland oregon Were just was it says. Violence erupted in portland on thursday night his riders targeted the mark o hatfield courthouse. Federal officers would to quell. The rest includes fire included. Fires and windows smashed there have been regular protests and riots in downtown portland says the may twenty fifth.

U.S. will defend troops and interests after rocket attack in Iraq, Defense Secretary says
"Understand and respect the reservations that some of you have expressed about having another recently retired general at the head of the department of defense the safety and security of our democracy demands competent civilian control of our armed forces the subordination of military power to the civil. I spent my entire life. Committed to that principle. Retired general. Lloyd austin at his confirmation hearing to become the nation's first black defense secretary now on the job just over six weeks. We sat down to discuss the obstacles facing the military across the middle east the kovin pandemic and extremism within the ranks. But i began by asking him about his transition from army four star general to civilian chief of the armed forces lloyd illustrations years in uniform stretched from the halls of west. Point to the battlefields of iraq. Where i shed a ride out of baghdad with him back in twenty eleven. How does your combat experience your forty one years in uniform guide you now as a civilian leader you certainly come into the position With a great appreciation for the complexities of combat and you also have an appreciation for the impact that combat has not only on the country that you're fighting in but also on the resources of the country set are actually fighting. We wanna lead with diplomacy in every case but if deterrence fails and you must fight you fight to win and so you wanna make sure that that your your troops are properly resource properly trained and focus the right way so that they can not only win but when decisively during his forty one years in the army it was not just combat that tested austin. He broke through many racial barriers. Along the way. I can remember going to a bus station with my mother and looking at the restrooms that were male female in colored. That's kind of how we started. How i started as a child and to rise to To be able to rise to position of secretary of defense in my lifetime is quite incredible. But you have to ask yourself you know why it took so long to have an african american secretary of defense. What we wanna make sure happens going forward is that i am not the last african american secretary of defense that we create those opportunities in our ranks for african americans and hispanics to rise to the very highest ranks in our military and to that end. Battling extremism is high on his agenda. I wanna turn to to january. Sixth more than forty veterans have been arrested from that day. You have asked for one day standdown for everyone to talk about extremism. What are you hearing in terms of extremism in the ranks. I just got an initial brief bag from From our service secretaries on on how they're conducting the stand down they're all going about it in a in a bit of a different way as you would expect great initiative They're all doing great work. They're having some really in depth conversations with their troops on On values on the oath that we took on the importance of unit cohesion. This is not about You know political parties or political political beliefs. This is behavior that can really tear at the fabric of our institution And so we want to make sure that our troops are reminded of of what our values are reminded of the oath that we took coming in and and my belief my strong belief martha is at ninety nine point nine percent of our troops embrace those values and are focused on the right things and are doing the right things each and every day and want him move to iraq. This week we saw a second significant attack with those ten rockets. Do you know who did it. And what kind of responses might we expect. We're still developing the intelligence. They're encouraging the iraqis to move as fast as i can to investigate the incident and they are doing that but you can expect that we will always hold people accountable for their acts. We wanna make sure that Again we understand. Who's responsible for this The message to those that that would carry out such a such an attack. Is that you know. Expect us to do necessary to defend ourselves. We'll strike if that's what we think we need to do. At a time and place of our own choosing we demand the right to protect our troops has iran been given the message that this is not an escalation when we retaliate. iran is Is fully capable of assessing You know the strike and and our activities and draw their own conclusions but what they should draw from. This again is that we're going to defend our troops and are responsible be thoughtful. It will be appropriate. We would hope that they would choose to do the right things

"So not only is it achievable, it is highly desirable but doesn't go far enough to fulfill the demands of the Paris accords in terms of keeping global warming to within that two degree limit. Yes. If everyone commits to a net zero, I'll buy 2050. That is what they have actually promised under the Paris agreement, however, Because 2050 is 30 years from now, we also in addition to setting that long term target, it will be important to set shorter term targets such as targets for 2025 2030, you said, achievable. In other words, it is capable of being achieved. But do you think it will? I mean, President Biden's talked about Introducing an enforcement mechanism into law by the end of the first term. In other words, by 2025. Is that a bit of a tall order? Given how much opposition there's likely to be? There will be a need for negotiation and for agreements with the Republican Party. What I take comfort from is the attitude that President Biden and Vice President Harris have already demonstrated in there. One in fact, half a day in office, where they have been very, very clear about the fact that they are not going to go about anything with confrontation, but rather with the spirit of collaboration and inclusive. But it goes to the wider issue of enforcement. Doesn't it of of how do you ensure that signatories to the Paris Accord actually live up to what they've promised on comm prove that they have. I mean, one struggles to see The same sort of enforcement mechanism in law from Russia and China. Perhaps enforcement actually is not very effective because the moment first of all, everyone would have to agree to enforcement of those targets. Secondly, any country as we have seen from the United States, any country has the right to withdraw. So how'd you get? How'd you get countries to do what they say they're going to do because it's in their interest. It's in everyone's interest to modernize the electricity sector that in every country is completely outmoded, outdated and antique. And yet there are plenty of people in the U. S would say, especially as we're in the middle of a pandemic, which is causing huge economic damage. Actually our immediate term interest, creating jobs, or at least holding onto jobs, ensuring that people have access to cheap energy. All those things that much more important right now. Totally agree, And that is why it's important to modernize all infrastructure because that is what is going to create jobs. History shows that after a major economic disaster, such as a war what creates jobs much quicker is actually infrastructure building an infrastructure modernization. And that is why this is such a huge opportunity. So it's actually Ah win win. That was Christianity. Ganis, who was executive secretary of the U. N Convention on Climate Change at the time of the Paris Accords, Speaking to me from Costa Rica. We're gonna turn to Iraq to the Iraqi capital Baghdad because there's been a double suicide bombing there is completely studied two people and wounded more than 100. The attack at a busy market is the worst that the city seen in several years. Police and eye witnesses say that there were two blasts in swift succession. At the market in Tyrone Square, which was crowded with people Samir Club is Associated Press is Iraq correspondent and in Baghdad. How common is such an attack? This attack is very rare in Baghdad. The last time this occurred was in January of 2018, and that was shortly after then Prime Minister Haider al Abadi declared victory over the Islamic state Group on guard difficult. Lee was around the same area that the attack occurred. So it's been a while in Baghdad. However, attacks occur regularly in other areas of Iraq. And what are the authorities saying about what happened and he might have been responsible. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet, but Iraqi military officials have told us that they believe it was the work of the Islamic state group. Basically what happened there was two men. One of them created a bit of a scene in the middle of the commercial area that he was pretending to be ill. Crying out loud. That prompted a crowd together around him to see what was going on. And it was then that he detonated the best. Shortly after that another individual came and did the same, which is why we see such high death toll today, right? So really pretty cynical way to try and cause as many casualties as possible on does that does that bear the hallmarks of VIAS, then? Absolutely. We have seen similar attacks perpetrated by I s elsewhere around Iraq. The suicide bombing is something that they have have done. It's very much their style of attack. Especially here, and that distinguishes them from other groups. Militia groups who have perpetrated other kinds of attacks launching rockets, For example, at the US Embassy, It's It's a very different style of attack. What about the timing? Just one day after President Biden's inauguration of people reading something into that thinking that might be significant? There's a lot of speculation that dad and Iraq in general, there's a lot of tension leading up to Biden's inauguration. But that was mostly related to the tensions between the U. S and Iran that has played out in Iraq in the last year. Nothing at all related to the Islamic State group. While there was anticipation of something happening, I don't really think anyone expected something like this to happen. Just one final thought. I mean many people listening. Aziz say they haven't been any major attacks in Baghdad. And so it hasn't been in the in the headlines, and many people thought that Islamic state had largely been routed. I mean, this suggests that they're still very much active and a threat Is that fair? Absolutely. They're still a threat. Like I said, The attack in Baghdad is quite rare. But what we have seen is over the summer, an uptick in attacks and other areas across northern Iraq in particular. This is an area that has been historically very difficult to police. The Iraqi army as well as US led coalition forces have conducted many operations to root out Isis cells there, especially with the Corona virus, and measures that were taken to reduce the presence or the rotation of security forces around this area believe those areas It seems that that militants have taken advantage of this to launch attacks. But in Baghdad, this is definitely a concerning development. That was something I could love, Who's Iraq correspondent for The Associated Press in Baghdad still to come on the program, A caravan of migrants in Central America is being pushed back by police. In Guatemala, But the migrants think they're trying to get through Mexico will be even tougher May cause of Mexico is definitely the hardest part. For example, I've seen people come back here from trying Saying they've been assaulted. They couldn't get past the federal police or immigration officials and to avoid the immigration agents. They end up in the hands off criminal gangs who attacked him. Vote coming up in about 20 minutes time. Top headline from the newsroom this how the U.
