"E. Pretty much for locked down National mall will be closed and estimated 25,000 National Guard troops. Unprecedented security in the wake of the deadly January 6th riot Tomorrow. Of course, is Inauguration Day. We're joined by San Antonio. First news National correspondent Bill Er. Excuse me, Bill Zim for Bill before we talk about new arrest being made even though protest over the weekend for the most part, did not. Materialize. Capitol buildings across the country are still under scrutiny. Absolutely. And there will be tight security everywhere across the country, and you're right. Fortunately, over the weekend, there were very few really incidents and very few protesters. In most cases that state capitals across the country, you had more media and more law enforcement than you had demonstrators, the largest of which may be contained a couple of dozen people who remain peaceful, so That the good news But the security will remain tight at the state capitals across the country and other sensitive areas. As I mentioned, more arrests are being made any idea how many people have been arrested in? Maybe how many have been identified but not arrested yet? This is expanding exponentially, Charlie. We we think a roughly 100. People have already been arrested and charged in connection with the January 6th events of the capital, including Some of the faces. We've all become familiar with from those videos. We've all seen there and we understand that there are over 300 active investigations underway in two others who may have been involved. The FBI is acting on over 100,000 tips they have received in the wake of this whole incident at the capital. So this is continuing. This will continue to expand and likely result in hundreds of arrest Charlie and those that are being arrested. They will be taken into custody and their local Jurisdictions and face arraignment there. But this is all being handled by the district, the U. S attorney in Washington D. C under federal charges which could result in jail time. Yeah, and I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that those people that do get arrested in service from jail time Probably won't ever do anything like this again. Yeah. Yeah, I said, I think that's a pretty safe bet. We're already hearing from a lot of the people who have been arrested. Who said I got caught up in the situation? I don't know why I did this and I regret it. Well, of course you do. And of course, we're also hearing from some of them going. I was just following what my president suggested that I do pretty weak excuse at the same time. It's probably the only excuse of God. Yeah. What is the excuse? I'm not sure the president told us to be here are well, okay. That's not going to get you very far with law enforcement. However, in the in the court system, so there is no good excuse for this. People should have known better. This is a government building. It was a government building that was closed and you just can't storm it. Of course, you're gonna be in serious trouble breaching of federal facility like that so This is something, Charlie. We're going to hear about these cases. They're going to go on for some time.

"Before eight o'clock. Right now. We're joined by San Antonio First news National correspondent Bill Zim for Night two of the Republican National Convention last night. That means that tonight is a night three and includes Vice President Mike Pence. Meanwhile, Democrats still pushing for a new stimulus package. Do you think we'll ever get there? I think we will have to and I'll tell you why Charlie. And Of course, this moved by the Democrats again is partially a diversion because of the convention going on for the Republicans, but it's also to keep that issue out there. The Democrats, of course in the House have already passed a $3 trillion Corona virus package to again stimulate the economy. Republicans have said. That's way too much money. And they had put a cap of a trillion dollars on any kind of spending for this, but they're still pretty far apart and remain stuck in the mud. And this will be the elephant waiting for Congress when they return after Labor Day. Normally, a time when Congress does not want to touch any hot button issue, there's close to the election, but they may have to And the reason is Charlie that one thing that may tell the tale here is Wall Street because the analyst will tell you that Wall Street has already factored in another stimulus package. If it doesn't happen and falls through in advance of the election, things could get ugly in the financial markets. A place that President Trump has pointed out with pride as well. He should. We're at record or near record levels on the markets now, and the president is likely to apply Ah lot of pressure on Congress, both Democrats and Republicans to get something done as quickly as possible. New concerns about a covert vaccine. Yeah, And the concern is that a vaccine could be pushed out too early. Ah, these air. The factors that have led to this Charlie first off a couple of weeks ago, you remember, Russia raised their hand and said, We have one were first have a vaccine, even though they skipped over the vital trials needed to make sure everything is safe. And then your China say, Oh, yeah, we've been vaccinating people since July. Giving their vaccine medical workers and border personnel and even workers in food markets. So this and we've heard President Trump talk about having news on a vaccine very soon, and we've heard him mention election day as a possibility. So is there a possibility that we could actually give emergency use authorization to a vaccine? This fall. We're hearing increasing cautionary notes coming from this about this Charlie, because two factors first off the obvious safety factors involved in putting out a vaccine before you have the data from those widespread phase three trials. The other part of it is that once you make an emergency use authorization on a vaccine You're making that at vaccine available. Will others be willing to take part in trials on vaccines in development? It may end up hindering, delaying the development of those projects, which eventually may turn out a vaccine that's even more effective. So there are some, like I say, cautionary notes being thrown out there now about Bringing out a vaccine just too fast.

It must be North Korea. Or you're right. What a week it has been hit our foreign policy team. But right now Korea has jumped to the forefront again after some missile launches were conducted yesterday by Kim Jon on too short range missiles were launched a military. Analysts are still trying to decide whether they were standard ballistic missiles, or perhaps the maneuverable type of missile the new generation weapon that could be even more of a concern because it could be used to elude missile defense systems in South Korea at the same time, the United States there was launching our own missiles conducting submarine base missile launches as. Tests continued here as well and coincidentally the United States yesterday took possession of North Korean cargo ship initially impounded in Indonesia, it was taken into custody because you used to transport coal in violation of sanctions the United States. Now says that ship is ours all this adding to increasing rhetoric between the United States and North Korea were not to the fire and fury days yet, gene. But we're heading in that direction with Kim Jong UN now saying that North Korea is in full combat pasture Oscar that they must be ready for any defensive measure. So once again, we're heading in the wrong direction in our relations with North Korea. Bill, I got to ask the question that I think is on the minds of many of our listeners are I it's it's the big question. Are we going are we heading towards war? I can't believe that would ever happen. I don't believe that the United States would make that move. I can't believe that China would allow North Korea to initiate type of move as well and through all China's like the big brother to Kim Jong UN there in that part of the world. So I can't believe that that could happen in that part of the world. However, all the all the components are there all the ingredients in this recipe. Are there this cooler heads must prevail and Bill? We we see that North Korean ship. Have we done that before? It's the first time this has happened. And I think this is a definite signal from the United States to North Korea. That look we know this stuff is happening. We know they're illegal shipments taking place, and we can do this.

The problem was he was collaborating with an undercover agent who was cooperating with the FBI. So he was arrested before any kind of plot could be actually executed, of course, they had designed some devices for this event that would not explode. So there were the really was no hazard to anybody in the public. But another disturbing report that here is an American who had served in the military, converted to Islam rapidly became radicalized in planned to mass casualty attack also thought of other attacks involving the Santa Monica pier, some freeways and the Los Angeles area, really.

I I know that yesterday on Easter Sunday, I was at church surrounded by loved ones and church family and family family, and and it was a wonderful experience. And I would imagine it was very much like that in Sri Lanka for Christians there as bombs started blowing up, and and blood and carnage and pain and misery and death. And suffering was happening all around them. Just an horrific situation. Erin Sri Lanka yesterday. Joe ya. A day normally filled with peace and joy and family just shattered in three Lanka. When a series of explosives went off suicide bomber striking three churches. Three hotels and a couple of other locations who right now, they say two hundred ninety are dead. And that death toll is expected to rise more than five hundred injured just to give you an idea one church that was targeted Saint Sebastian's church in the Gumbo, which is near the capital city. There were a thousand people inside that church when the bomb was detonated in that one church alone. One hundred four people were killed many others injured, you can't imagine the horror involved in Easter Sunday there. So we have a tragic situation and a massive investigation underway, and we have some developments as morning right now officials in Sri Lanka are telling us that they have length a local Jihadist group to these acts. It is a group goes by the initials, N T J. But to this point this is a group has been involved in lower level activities such as. He facing Buddhist statues normally anti-buddhist group sofa that reason the government says that they had the help and cooperation of an international network. They have not named that network but say they did not act alone. They had international help in staging this series of coordinated attacks. So the investigation is continuing along that avenue they have arrested twenty four people. In addition. There is another focal point of this investigation. Apparently, there was at least one warning that was given to government officials early in April. There could have been through more unconfirmed reports say there could have been warnings as as near as ten minutes before these bombs went off, and they were ignored by the government than there were no counter measures taken. So that'll be a big part of this investigation as well. The government of Sri Lanka has some questions to answer. And Bill just as you're talking to me. You couldn't have followed this since you are literally talking at that moment. But in the last sixty seconds reporter. There on the ground in Colombo the capital of Sri Lanka. A report that another bomb has just been heard at Saint Anthony's church in Colombo. What is not entirely clear is if this was a bomb that was accidentally triggered in some way, shape or form, or if it was a controlled explosion of a bomb that may be the bomb squads found, and they were just doing a controlled explosion.

But I get the sense that the dropping of the mullahs report is just the beginning. Not the end NBC News Radio. Bill ZIM for joins us this morning, and man, depending on one's political stripes. Your take it away completely different conclusions from the Muller report. You're right Joe. This is interesting in that it depends what type of decoding device you're used to go. Use the Republican device. You're getting one result saying a this is a victory as Kellyanne Conway called it the best day since election day up in a few using that democratic device you're saying we need to look at a lot more of what's included in this Muller report.

So this will continue on, but we did get a little bit of surprising sensibility coming from the house majority leader, Steny Hoyer who said that we have an election coming up in a year and a half. Maybe we should just let the American people decide on the presidency of Donald Trump instead of going ahead with impeachment proceedings, and continuous hearings and other investigations allegis.

"Traffic tip line Hillsboro, eight six six five four five ninety five ninety five the controversy up in Virginia has expanded pass. Just the governor who was seen in black face and a picture and. And there's been a kind of a debate over that as to whether or not he did and most people are calling for his resignation. But now, we've added the Lieutenant governor who has a an assault allegation against him and Bill ZIM for NBC. News Radio reporter joins us right now and Bill this one seems to be destined to go on for awhile. Yeah. I mean, this is this is a real mess that they have going on in Virginia right now the governor is under a lot of pressure to resign. He says he needs more time before he makes a decision on this. And it right now is is holding onto the office. His Lieutenant governor who would be the next in line. Should the governor resign is now defending sexual assault allegations that he assaulted a woman during the two thousand four democratic national convention, so we have a whole lot going on here. And there have been allegations, maybe not direct, but inferences by the Lieutenant governor just in Fairfax that maybe it was the governor himself who let this story out there or perhaps the mayor of Richmond who may be a future political opponent as the two may be gubernatorial candidates next time around. So there's a lot of allegations flying around here. Almost universal calls for the governor to step down from Democrats and Republicans alike on the. Statewide level and the national level. Like, I said, we got a big mess and Bill you kind of alluded to the timing of the sexual assault allegations to me, they're sketchy on assuming that's the same for other people as well. That's exactly what Justin. Fairfax is saying he was saying why why would this come up now? And he said he pointed out that this was an incident that was consensual took place during that convention. He says that the Washington Post and other news organizations actually looked into it and decided not to print a story on it that there was not enough core operation, and there was not enough there to to warrant this. So I it is a very difficult situation for everybody involved here. So the question is what happens now what happens if north them resigns? What happens if Fairfax is forced to resign? Then it goes down to the attorney general who is Mark Heron's who has already called for the governor to resign. So it really is a a weird weird situation. Then on top of this. Had that news conference at the governor had where he said now I wasn't in that picture, but I did do an impersonation of Michael Jackson one time in a dance contest where I put some few polish on my face, and almost almost was talked into doing the moonwalk on stage before his wife stopped him. I love that somebody reporter said can you still do the moonwalk or something like that? He was looking like he's going to do it. And his wife said don't you dare? You know, this thing with Justin Fairfax, this has been going on here for the metoo movement, which is you are guilty until you're proved innocent, and he is in that situation. But I'm wondering this woman again bringing this up now, and I'm wondering why was she alone in a room with him. Anyway. Yeah. I he agrees from the from what I understand he says it was a consensual. Let me no one night stand at the two had. And from what I understand she agrees that it it was it started off as consensual, but then got out of hand a little bit. Once they were in the room. So that's that's the story that we're getting so far. But the timing. I agree. The timing is rather interesting. Yeah. It'll be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out. But Bill we appreciate your joining us on AM Tampa Bay. And we'll talk to you later gay jockey, Jack Bill ZIM for our NBC News Radio reporter, I think that's part of a larger conversation, we're dealing with in the metoo movement where I we have to differentiate in my opinion between sexual assault, and when there's consensual sex and during that ramp, or whatever you wanna call it. You might not feel the most comfortable, but you're not letting that be known. You know what I'm saying? Yeah. Maybe not everything goes your way, the passion kind of flames out that night doesn't nothings as you expected it to be I think that to me depending on what happened in that bedroom. It's. Different than sexual assault. Yeah. And again, it's you're guilty until proven innocent. Which is not the way all going to have to start filming everything just to prove our innocence. Eventually they're going to be cameras everywhere. Anyway, so. The rooms and all of that kind of stuff. So people will be able to. Oh, here's here's our film on that. But anyway, hey on our web page here. Natalie is put up some good stuff for some trying to get that thing come up here. Now, I wanna see this flight attendant walking on the plains wing mid air.

"And Katie and joining us on the hotline right now NBC News Radio reporter Bill ZIM for Bill how are you, I'm doing great Ryan good, morning good morning to you so hurricane season we've been lucky so far off to a slow start hopefully that will continue what's going on well what is happening according to the meteorologists is that the temperatures the water temperatures. In the Atlantic Ocean or cooler than they. Were, a year ago and that's one of the reasons. That we haven't seen these storms form more often and and we are entering a time now. Ryan when even though this is. Not the peak. Of hurricane season This might be the peak. Of real dangerous hurricane because if we look back. In history the five most, powerful, storms, ever, to, hit the US mainland occurred in. This two week window between now and the beginning of September this includes Hurricane Andrew nineteen ninety two eight includes Katrina in two thousand five Camille nineteen sixty nine and and the most, powerful, hurricane ever on record according to pressure statistics hit the. Florida Keys, in nineteen, thirty five on Labor. Day over four? Hundred people were, killed. There so. That's why we look. At this window, now to try to get a gauge and the good. News is there's nothing on the radar. The, forecasters don't see any tropical waves coming off of the coast of Africa nothing forming in the eastern Atlantic nothing down in the Caribbean so that's. The good news right now that if we can get through this next two week period even though the peak of hurricane season doesn't come until mid-september usually at that point they begin to weaken A little bit the real strong and last year right at this time. We're talking about hurricane Harvey and Irma which I hit at the end of this window, as well, but you know this window here is the ones that can really do damage unlike any other and it looks like we're, in pretty good shape right. Now can they tell if the water temperature you said it's it's been cool because for hurricane they say it's got to reach eighty degrees Fahrenheit, to get to that hurricane level so do they know how long the water's gonna stay this cool. And could they anticipate that's going to happen in the future well I don't think they can look that far in the future Erin but. You know they can anticipate that at least and again you know ocean currents, shift and things happen and so they've got to watch exactly. Where these waters are moving where the currents are going but still I think they can forecast probably, looking out at the next two to four weeks and say. That the temperature is, going to be cool Cooler than normal as for in the, future all they can look at is what's coming in from the west and they say that this. Year there's a seventy percent chance of an El Nino forming out west which means warmer water, in the eastern Pacific area now what that does for the. Eastern for that area is a cuts, down on the number of storms but as that, warm water, and that whole El Nino begins to move there's a possibility that water. Temperatures could increase in the Atlantic as well but for now? We're. Looking okay what was interesting was the predictions at the start? Of, hurricane season were that it'd be a pretty active season but they've, scaled back those, predictions over the past couple of weeks and, now it, looks like it might not be, but it only takes one and that's why people still need to, stay vigilant especially through September. Yeah they've, they've downgraded their forecast a couple of times right now they're saying four to seven hurricanes we've already had to so if we get to More it it would be within their forecast range and again we won't hit the peak until mid-september luckily the, t the hurricanes are not as powerful that time of year mainly. Because of the temperature factors but still you know, we're looking at this next couple of weeks and if we can get through this without any. Major, damage, without any storms hitting the coastlines I think we'll be. In better shape than we would if we if we. Get one of those monsters NBC News Radio reporter Bill ZIM for here on AM Tampa Bay Bill we appreciate the time you got it thanks guys I. Mean we're, still dealing with Marie from last year And all the problems that happened afterward I I don't wanna take a negative tone towards.

Weren't really going to get any rain. So I. Got my, car washed figured this is the perfect time A perfect time let me go. Get it, washed looks like no rain for a few. Days within ten minutes of me getting it washed it rains tell Reigned again yesterday every time you think that it's going, to happen but the forecast said have you park your car outside where he lives always outside and actually I went from the car wash, place to Publix went, into publics and when, I came out.

"Good weekend and it is Monday back to the grind kids are back at UCF, this morning so welcome back to college young men and young women and everything in, between NBC News Radio Bill ZIM for is joining us this morning and Bill we dangled down here into the between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean and. We're always concerned about hurricanes and we're getting revised predictions about the hurricane season Joe revised predictions that are good, news really the National Hurricane Center has revise their predictions downward but still we're keeping an eye on the next two weeks for good reason because this next two weeks while not the peak of hurricane season that won't come till mid. September is the time when the most damaging hurricanes hit traditionally the five most powerful hurricanes have ever hit the United, States had hit in. This window. Between mid August right now and the beginning of. September including Andrew in nineteen ninety two with a category five storm Katrina. Two thousand five Camille nineteen sixty nine, all among the five most powerful storms of all time that I've hit during this window, including the, most powerful of all time was even before they. Had names for these things the woman hit the Florida Keys in nineteen thirty five, that killed over four hundred people that was on September first the most powerful storm Ever last, year hurricane Harvey was in this window so, was right at the end of August, into September so we're keeping an eye on this now and if we can get through this two weeks fan we. Should be in pretty good shape the. Good news is there is nothing on the radar no, tropical waves coming off of Africa nothing forming in the Caribbean so right now we look very good as for the overall prediction other Hurricane Center is saying they still expect to major hurricanes we have not had one yet we. Had, five named storms storms two of them at. Turned into hurricanes but nothing above a category too so so far so good but again the peak, of the season won't hit till September the good, news and that is usually at that point they begin to weaken as they go along through the fall well for those of our listeners who are watching their radio closely as you were describing that for your report if you were.
