North Carolina Tar Heels basketball coach Roy Williams retires

"North Carolina coach Roy Williams announced his retirement after 18 seasons coaching the Tar Heels. I feel very fortunate that we've had him for so long, it's such a high level. One of the great coaches in the game of basketball more reaction to the retirement of UNC legend Roy Williams with over 900 wins and three national championships to his name. When asked about why he chose to retire now, Williams said, quote every time somebody asked me how long I was going to go. I'd always say as long as my health allows me to do it, But deep down inside, I knew the only thing that would speed that up. Was if I did not feel that I was any longer the right man for the job. I no longer feel that I'm the right man for the job. Williams went unbeaten in March Madness first round matchups. 29 You know until this year, the first round loss to Wisconsin breaking the streak. Sixers Garden national champion with UNC Danny Greene talked on Keyshawn J. Will and Zubin about his former coach, and what made him so legendary. He's been doing a strong as I've been alive and he's been a legend since then, since before probably I was born and he's a legendary stuff before me and during my time there and after He's one. You know a number of championships, and that's not even that doesn't speak on his success to me what he's done off the court and what he's pledged that school in other schools, eyes helped out in the community there, North Carolina and you know not just there, but many places in the world. So to me, that just speaks legendary. You know, outside the court just many ways you could be, um You know, a legend is many ways. You can be a hero. As many ways you could be a champion and world wins is the definition of all those. Those things even said the in before I was born. ESPN College basketball analyst Jay Billa spoke on Spain and Fitz about who could be a successor to Williams at UNC. I think it'll have to be somebody within the Carolina family. So the first thing you think of his Hubert Davis, who played there for Dean Smith, that has been a system under Roy Williams, the last 89 years. Some like that, and Um, you know, the only the only thing that people would bring up with Hubert is he has not yet been a head coach, but he's played a million years. The MBA there, you know, Roy Williams had never been a head coach when he took over Kansas, so I'm not all hung up on this head Coach thing. I think it's great. I'd rather I'd rather have Ah, someone with head coaching experience that not, But when you got somebody's got his Hubert, I wouldn't hesitate to make that higher. But also that the other one that I think Will be right in the mix of those West Miller, the head coach of UNC Greensboro, He played for Roy Williams on the 05 National championship team as backup guard and he's been an outstanding music, really young head coach. UNC Greensboro, and he's done really well there, but for the last couple of tournaments that were held, and he had a really good team this year with Isaiah Miller is his best player, making the double A. So he's He's another really good option

U.S. Stimulus Checks Start to Land in Bank Accounts

"May be some money from the government there. Now. Over the weekend, The first of those $1400 stimulus payments started showing up in people's accounts theorists has the job of sending them out yet another project for the agency right in the middle of tax season, NPR's Brian Naylor reports. It's been a rough decade or so, for the I. R. S budgets were slashed. There was a hiring freeze and a loss of workers. Tony reared in as president of the National Treasury Employees Union, which represents many I R s workers Since 2000 and 10 the iris has lost nearly 33,000. Employees. It makes it very difficult for the agency to do its tax work when you know they've lost more than 20% of the workforce. Then a year ago, the Corona virus pandemic hit the filing deadline for 2019 taxes was extended to July and the I. R S is still behind in processing those returns. And now, with the 2020 filing season underway, the agency has new responsibilities. It needs to issue the latest stimulus payments to some 85% of American households, according to President Biden and implement other provisions as well. It is big task on top of filing season. As well as the other stimulus measures that were put in place by the bill that Samantha Jacoby she's with the nonprofit center on budget and Policy Priorities, She says the Iris will get some help in the bill and infusion of $1.4 billion to modernize the agency's 50 year old software platform. The IRAs knows how big of a task this is and how important it is. They've got this big infusion of funding, which is really important. There could be some hiccups. But the Iris is working really hard to get this relief to people. The IRA says it's reviewing the just past, Billa spokesman telling NPR the measure is a really heavy lift in some respects. Nina Olson, a former taxpayer advocate at the agency, says the iris should be pretty well prepared to issue the stimulus payments. I think that the stimulus checks are the least of their worries in this Sense that they've done this twice for in the last 12 months. They have the programming in place for most of it. Certainly with the December around, they showed how quickly they could respond, but also says another provision of the measure could be a bit more complicated. It's the new monthly child tax credit of up to $300 per child that Democrats included in the bill. Which the I R. S is going to have to figure out how to implement its A new pro. Graham. It requires monthly payments. Although the issuance of monthly payments is to me the least of their worries. It's are you paying out the money to the right people, you know if the child is moved to somebody else's household Or another child is added, and another provision in the bill, which makes unemployment insurance payments. Tax exempt for many Americans is a further complication. Many taxpayers have already filed their 2020 returns and may have paid taxes. They no longer Oh, says Samantha Jacoby. The good news is starting last year. The Iris will now allow people who want to amend returns to do so. Elektronik Lee, which wasn't the case in the past, and that might make it a little bit easier for some people, But she says it's clearly a big challenge for the I. R. S to carry out. All that's been put on its plate with the new legislation, and it's going to take some time. Brian Naylor. NPR News, the first Western country to get

Kamala Harris breaks Senate tie to begin COVID-19 relief package debate

"Radio Senate formally moving ahead with the debate on the sweeping stimulus bill, but it was a close one. Michael Morning required a tiebreaker vote yet to have the vice president Kamila Harris, come in, just to get this thing underway to begin the process of debate there in the Senate, so she had to come in breaking 50 50 tired events The bill now the Senate is engaged in what I'll call a marathon effort. To take up President Biden's $1.9 Trillion pandemic relief bill expected to go through the weekend pretty easily here, a zoo chamber is is hearing the debate by hearing debate. I mean, they haven't even gotten to the debate part yet. I mean that they have spent the last 12 hours because Senator Ron Johnson pushed for all 628 pages of the legislation to be read out loud. On the grounds that there should be transparency and what's in it. Now it's not. Every senator has the right on either side of the aisle to make that request and to have things read out. As far as legislation goes, it just doesn't happen very often. And when it does, it's looked at largely as a delay tactic again. In this case, 628 pages of legislation buys I understood it took about 12 hours. It started around 3 20 yesterday afternoon and listen, it wasn't like every member of the Senate was glued to their seats to take notes on how this was all going to go down. In fact, as soon as the reading began, you saw Kamila Harris had to call for an order in the Senate because people were just hopping walking around, leaving. That's just the way this is. It's It's meant to be a delay tactic. But what is clear here is that they finished up that reading portion. It is about to begin the 20 hour debate session Now, that was just a time killer to get to the 20 hour debate session here, Tony, which is going to take place and this is where lawmakers are gonna have 20 hours under the reconciliation rules. To make the argument for what they have seen or heard in this Billa's far as the debate goes, then you're going to have the amendment voting session called Vote a Rama that usually will be about the serious of issues within that piece of legislation, but it could include, um any sort of vote on a contentious subject just literally back to back to back to back votes. That will last probably into the wee hours of the morning. And then when that's done, you have the final vote on this piece of legislation. And if it is approved in the Senate that will get sent back to the house, where the House will have to approve it, And then it could be sent to President Biden's desk for his signature. Well, you know, as well as I do that in this becomes partisan. That all bills are this bill the highway bill or it's the Cove in 19 Bill, or it's the stimulus package recovered 19 bill, but it does have a lot of other things in there. That to me personally Forget Democrat Republican. It's just frustrating that you can't get clean bills straight out just to help the American people with all the things we're gonna be tight. And so I understand. You know Ron Johnson and I'm not a big fan, but I'd like to find out more than lieutenant, I, You know, I don't people understood how bills get passed until Nancy Plus said. We've got to pass the bill, see what's in it, And that was kind of oi opening for a lot of Americans because you know they don't. They don't know the procedures a lot of time, and I think that that's part of the key to this is first of all available online. The bill's piece of legislation itself is they're all senators had a hard copy of it. So the reading it out loud was just moved to this sort of the late actor here, but the end of the day you're right. And with that there have been a lot of changes made they Hold out this massive amount of money to Nancy Pelosi was looking to get for transit system in San Francisco. This bridge to be built between New York and Canada, has been pulled out of the bill. The minimum wage portion of $15 an hour has been pulled out of the bill and also for moderate Democrats who were concerned about this. There's a streamlining here of who's going to get stimulus payments. Now, anybody earning $75,000 or less will still get their $1400 payment. But now there's a phase out faster that goes between 75,000 and $80,000 a year. So if you made $80,000 a year or couples making $1,660,000 a year. You're no longer qualifying for any stimulus, and that will affect around 11.8

It's something it has to be prepared for something it has to be taught to and it's in this situation I always thought was a waste of time anyway. You know, just teach the kids and go with pass fail. Go with the report cards. Go on. You'll see how you can monitor how they're doing that you need an actual standardized test.

"It'll rather little parts but the parts for the prices Every single day. Well, we did it. We did it, and we cautioned everybody not make too much of it because some people were starting to. Not that we'd never have made it a reservation or two along the way. But we were playing the aesthetics game. We were playing the aesthetics game here at these Kansas City Chiefs throughout the season teak meaning we were watching them play and even in victory. It wasn't good enough on they let the Broncos hang around on Sunday night. What was that? They're vulnerable. Like three or four of those games where we came to the table the next day after that game and wondered aloud and then quickly moved on, But it was, you know, it was out there for for debate sake for a little bit. That the cheese lost focus or luster, or had the NFL maybe caught up to him a bit. And I know they haven't won anything yet in terms of the big one, But the answer right now is no. Despite some of those fears early, Yeah. Now they can't see the TV star. Team that even when they're not playing the best, they can win a game. Even if it's against one of the best teams in the NFL is just it's just who they are, because their quarterback is gonna say he's perfect cause he's not. There's nobody perfect, but he's unflappable, and he has immense trust is we were talking about earlier and his playmakers to do what they're supposed to do. And I can't tell you how comforting that is as a quarterback. I mean, I never played quarterback, but I just you can see it. When you know that you can throw the ball to a spot and your guy's gonna be there when he's supposed to be there, or you can run a reverse like they did early in the game when they were down nine. Nothinto make you Hartmann. Hey, gets out to the side. You get to offensive lineman not like 15 yards downfield blocking. Those guys were 30 yards downfield, running full speed like there's an accountability. That exist in this team, and particularly on their offense. That just makes it so much easier for Pat Mahomes, who's already too great the office already great to continue to be great. It's just they're they're They're so well coached and so well constructed and so discipline that the things that they're supposed to do and he's doing things and I know it's. It's a little early for this, but because he's playing Tom Brady and this is inevitable. You know, we'll dip our toe in this pool eventually have to. Yeah, and and we'll willfully and happily do it. But the No, the inevitable and I don't think it's you know, like misplaced to at least wrap this in part of the conversation. You know, I mean, Mahomes. His trajectory right now is the stuff of legends and and that includes Tom Brady. Now sustainability staying healthy. You know, Brady had the one mishap with his knee on opening day Was that both seven await whatever was the one you're the one year they didn't win the division, but they still want 10 games. I know with my castle. Um He is just the stats are gonna be there. Hey, already has one very well could get, too if he beats Tom Brady, And that's why it's lining up almost serendipitously. Not that beating Rogers wouldn't have just, you know, further bolstered his quest to maybe someday be the greatest of all time. But if he takes down Brady Head to head in Brady's home stadium. First time that's ever happened in Super Bowl history. Just just keep throwing stuff on the resume. Look with all due respect Aaron Rodgers because he's a Hall of Famer first ballot. Obviously, he's great. He's one of the great passers and football history. Really, But he doesn't have the Super Bowl pedigree. And that matters because being able to win games in the championship round, which we were just alluding to. He's one and four Aaron Rodgers is and these last the last lost the last four opportunities that he's been there. Tom Brady. If he gets to the championship game he wins unless he's playing paid, manic getting immediate. He's elite. Hey, knows how to win on this stage. He doesn't get flustered. He's never been Don't know You've never seen him out of sorts. Tom Brady. He was a little bit in the end of this end of this game this past weekend, the championship game against Green Bay, but his defense pick them up as we were talking about, But you're right. If Pat Mahomes somehow finds a way and say it comes down to be a quarterback duel, then it really, you know, Brooke boosts the lore of Of Pat Mahomes and the expectation to surpass the goat. The only thing that I would worry about is the continuity in Kansas City. Yep. And this has nothing to do with players because I know that Will be smart and Brian Brett beaches there, general manager identify and bringing players to continue to accent Pat Mahomes. But how long is Andy Reid continue to do this, that that's the question? You have to ask. He's not old. I think he's only 62 or so Andy Reid. Maybe maybe maybe he's a little younger, and I don't know he's around that age. But if he just sets aside to say after three or four years You know, I'm good. You have won a couple championships. Maybe they went to Maura's like I'm out. I'm see you later. Then. Then Pat Mahomes has got his takeover has a whole another staff take over unless he unless be enemies there in this room. That's good Fortune plant. Good point, but he doesn't get the continuity like Tom Brady. That's true in New England, which is very true. You know, I know we want to put it all on Tom Brady. Oh, it's Tom Brady. Not Billa Billa check, but it was a combo up there as well. No question. No question. Defense and special teams 100%. Let's hear a cut. Speaking of Andy Reid, let's hear from Reed on the Brady Mahomes dynamic. Here's Kansas City, said coach Yeah. I mean, it seems like we've had a couple of those, and every one of them is tremendous on but I wouldn't expect this to be any different. They got it. They got tremendous team there so Those two have a lot of respect for each other. If you guys want to play something from our homes, it's a little subtle and and I don't think it's done with any sort of, you know, bombastic intention. But I want to play this or I d cell. When I tell you to stop. Just just stop for us. Okay, Here's my home's on facing Brady. Being able to go up against one toe. One of the greatest nothing greatest quarterback of all time. One of the greatest and then he said, if not the greatest, but the fact that he was not so definitive in anointing him with that reverence. That's not this respect. That's him, saying Stood Can't touch me. Now you can see there's no malice aforethought. There's no madness. That's not I didn't projected his malice what it is..

"This nexus is Billa Dulles, who is director and CEO of the University of Virginia's Miller Center. We've been talking a lot this morning about the 25th amendment, because the topic has come up so frequently in the last day and a half or so, bill and tell us what is the 25th amendment. And how did it come into? How did you come into the Constitution? Well, First of all, it's great to be with you all. And, um really, I'm thinking about Washington a lot of spend most of my career there, and I know that Capitol building is in your background there, C span and my heart really goes out to everybody and see what the last week was meant to the capitalist So, so thank you for having me on the 25th and then really Has been the latest effort to fix a flaw in the Constitution. That itself was fixing a flaw in government, You know, succession of a president, particularly an unfit president. Was has been a theme in Western government, maybe government everywhere in the world and 25th. And then that was trying to fix a few things that were unresolved from the 12th amendment, Uh, which tried to fix the Constitution itself. It's both presidential succession how the vice president takes over. When the president is in people incapable. It also tries to fix that then becomes vice president. How do you select the vice president, which was never really clarified? We had many times where Vice president would succeed president after death. On bear was no provision for selecting a vice president. You're trying to fix all of that. And then it was also trying to fix a flub. Well, what if the president is incapacitated, and most of that incapacitation was expected to be of When the president was not of sound body that is, the president was physically ill. But they started thinking about what happens that the president is mentally ill. And the 25th amendment tries to address all of that It came into being in the 19 sixties. But really it was almost 200 years and coming, But it is some of the experience of the past certainly must have let led to that. It's interesting. You use the word fix of flawed because these air sorts of things that As as phenomenal document. The Constitution is the things I guess The founders didn't think about that, right? Well, you know, it's all of us that got a refresher on what the founders were thinking about and how they missed it The first time we're reminded of this in the play Hamilton, I'm I'm here in Charlottesville, Thomas Jefferson's University, and there's that great scene. In Hamilton, where they explain why Hamilton I mean Jefferson and Burr tied for the presidency. It was widely assumed that Jefferson was the candidate of this new political party, the Democratic Republicans. And the Aaron Burr from New York would be his vice president. Yet they received the same number of electoral votes. Somebody essentially forgot to cast them. Electoral vote forgot to not cast a vote for bursts of the Jefferson would receive the majority. So in the play Hamilton you here, Jefferson saying, Oh, we can fix that will just amend the Constitution, which they did just a few years later. With the 12th amendment. Yes, the 12th amendment didn't resolve what happens if the vice president takes over on. Gui saw that in 18 40. In his very long inaugural address, William Henry Harrison caught a deep cold. Maybe there's a theory that it was the water at the White House that got him sick. But he died about a month after taking office and John Tyler becomes president. And he becomes the president, even though many people thought he should become the acting president, and he just assumed the powers of the presidency and eventually, both houses of Congress affirmed that he was the president, even though that wasn't provided for in the Constitution. So in many ways this has been had been left unresolved. And frankly, one of the things that tipped it in this direction was the assassination of John Kennedy, where Lyndon Johnson then becomes the president. And there needs to be a provision for selecting a vice president getting a bit more modern. I'm thinking two of the Woodrow Wilson situation. Woodrow Wilson was incapacitated by a stroke during the latter half of his presidency, so there was no tool. There was no constitutional tool of that time to replace him. Exactly saying, you know, Dwight Eisenhower had a heart attack, and there was some question and you know what, in more recent memory when Ronald Reagan was shot Very questions about whether and how power should be transferred to the vice president during 9 11 when it was difficult to be in touch with President George W. Bush. There was this famous incident of whether or not someone should make a call about shooting down one of the airplanes that was still under the direction of Of the terrorist was heading toward the capital. You know, there was a question of whether Vice President Cheney had the authority issue that command and so these issues have been out there for some time, and it is it is a great matter of who is in charge. It is a substantive, lengthy amendment to the Constitution, maybe one of the longer ones so I just want to focus here in terms of the focusing on the Trump presidency on Section four of the 20. If amendment and show our viewers and listeners what that says. It says. Whenever the vice president and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such body is Congress may buy long provide transmit to the president Pro TEM of the Senate and the speaker of the House of Representatives there written declaration that the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. The vice president shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as acting president has that Ever been used in a presidency before? Well, it's quite interesting. It kind of has, but the phrase acting president Um, I never actually got activated and it was twice and for those of us over 50. We've been there and done that twice. Presidents have gone under. Let's just call them routine medical procedures, a colonoscopy where they had to be put under anesthesia and the difference between anesthesia. And going to sleep at night is you can't be quickly awoken when you're under anesthesia. And so the question is in that moment where we know what presidents alive. Um is of sound body and mind. But for that brief moment is incapable of acting and incapable of being revived quickly. Who is in charge, and so twice in recent men memory when presidents have gone under those kinds of procedures, paperwork has been filed preparing the vice president. To be in that situation, if need be, And they were quite careful in those cases, not to actually activate the acting vice president because the idea was attended by president was empowered. To do other things.

I'd like to get a little break, but we also got to make sure we're doing the right things and being safe. This is uncharted waters. Every coach can do what they think is right.

Are you speaking for the people that are actually doing it? And it's crazy, because when he says, Look, they need to play basketball. This is the thing the hardest thing for athletes and when it comes to basketball, collegiately and professionally missing, the gym was hard. These athletes still won't have access to a gym. The question is competitively. Do they need to be playing at all times? Even if it's a scenario that could be extremely precarious. Do they have to be traveling at this time when the numbers are going up, and this hasn't really served a nice process for anyone at this moment? I think that's the question that needs to be, you know, asked, and I think that's what Jay Billa says asked, And the answer here is like yes, they can play basketball. They can have access to a gym.

And I am very much looking forward to watching my friend Jay Billa's Give me the analysis and all these players because their arm or this year the names at the top are ones We've probably seen play less than in any year that I can remember in a very long time. And so I welcome J Bill is back to the program. Hello again, Bilis. Greenie. Good to be with you. So I teased going into the break that we're going to say a name that a lot of people probably have not heard it all that they better remember when we get to tonight. And that name is Tyreese Halliburton. It's a name I had. I'm not 100% sure that I'd ever heard It spoken aloud until about two days ago. And now I'm hearing everyone Tell me this is the player to watch tonight. Tell us who he is and how high he might go. Well, he is. He's a point guard from Iowa State, and he's been there a couple years. Um, long armed, you know, Lanky, uh, outstanding handler. Really good passer. Excellent shooter, You know, Spot up shooter, um, can shoot from deep can put the ball on the deck and get to the rim and finish and he's a really good defender. I mean, I think Perhaps the most complete player in the draft and the one you'd say. He's going to play 10 12 years and there's no way he's not going to be good. Um, you know, it's just a question of Kennedy is gonna be great, and he may have a lower ceilings and Lamell, a ball wise, James Wiseman or Anthony Edwards, but his his flora's much higher so you know you can. Well. He's reliable. You can rely on him. And I've got him is the fourth overall prospect in the draft for that reason, primarily, not necessarily that he's going to. He's going to come in and you know, lighted up like Donovan Mitchell or something like that. But that he's going to be unbelievably solid on band attribute to winning at a high level right away. That's just the name. I want Everyone listening to be remembering tonight when you hear his name called much earlier than a lot of people are projecting. You heard Jay Bill is tell you here. He could go that high. Let's talk about what Melo ball. He's obviously by far the most famous player in this draft because of his family and all the things that have happened. Just how good is he? J. He's really talented. He's a He's a wizard with the ball. Great ball handler, Spectacular passer. Can can deliver the ball in almost any situation, transition ability. He doesn't shoot it, and he doesn't. He hasn't shown much. Interest in defending to this point. But he loves to play put this time in, and I have no doubt that that hill transition well and be a good MBA player. I don't I don't think even though he's extraordinarily talented with the ball And you know a point guard. I have Anthony Edwards little bit ahead of him because Edwards is a better score..

Republican Voters Reflect On The Republican National Convention

"The Republican National Convention wrapped up on the South Lawn of the White House last night. That's where President Trump gave the final speech of the week He talked about law and order about American greatness and bash Joe Biden. We wanted to hear from some conservative voters on how the message is from the RNC landed this week from President Trump's speech last night. I feel like this was the line when he said that we do not put our trust In politicians or government. As our Saviour. We put our faith in Almighty God. Listen, Dick button, and I would second that when I saw the young man speaking about how he was cancelled. So were you talking about Nick Sandman, the young man who had Had the experience on the National Mall. So he got featured and talked about the idea of cancel culture. And it's something that is very important to me because my Children are more conservative. When they go out to college, or even at work. They will be. I don't know they will be bullied. I feel that there is an issue of freedom of speech. This is Dick Button ing. I agree, Chauncey. I really appreciated his speaking and for a young man. He really did a great job of stating. How he throat there were so many black Republicans Black Latino Asian, It was sort of a multi racial vision of the party that isn't necessarily in line with the data of the voting patterns. Can you talk about what you thought about what you heard from those speakers? Well, I think it's something that needed to be pointed out. Yes and tohave the black people coming forward and making that statement I thought was good. It was absolutely necessary for the convention to have people of different backgrounds and different status in life because It's the media and it's the message and that's what's causing all the unrest that saying Either you're here or you're there, and that's unfair. It's been unfair to the president from day one. You said something that this is the cause of unrest. This divisiveness What's your response to the viewers who say the cause of the unrest is police misconduct? Listen, this country is a big country with a lot of police departments and They probably are and there is justice. That's nothing Serve properly to say that it's systemic to state. It's systemic. To me, that's cowardice. My daughter is a nurse. And there are good nurses and there are bad nurses. There are good doctors and there are bad, doc and there are good policemen, and unfortunately what back we spent, and I'm sure we've all had that. Paul. Let me let you jump in here. Clearly, there are instances of excessive use of police force. Police officers are, in fact human beings and some human beings. They're bad things, whether by mistake or by malice, the insistence on framing The use of police force in racial terms has ruined any chance of an honest conversation about it. Right now, the president is dealing with a number of crises. There's the pandemic, There's thie. Massive job loss. And there are these protests over police misconduct. The's are all things that have happened under his watch. It's a little different from being new to the political scene and saying Here's how I'm going to improve things. If voters on the fence and watching all this why should they not think that the buck stops with him publicly here? I'll jump right in on that the president actually tried to get out in front of the Corona virus. The steps that he tried to take initially were blocked and he was chastised for them by the opposition party. As well as the riots that have been going on. The president has offered help to the cities and states. Not only has he been rejected, he had been ridiculed. He's been told to get out of there State He's been Billa vied. It sounds like what you guys were saying is the message to voters is None of this is his fault, and he tried and he needs another four years to improve the situation. I would go so far as to say it's sabotage.

The Trump Administration's Policies in Afghanistan and Africa

"The foundation for the Defense of Democracies. He's a senior fellow keeps the Long word journal with Tom Johnson and his colleagues. We go immediately to Afghanistan because here during the Republican convention We want to explicate what we can of the Republican intention if it is successful, winning a second term for President Trump and then to remark upon thee. Trump administration's policies in Africa, particularly when it comes to the kind of length organization Al Shabaab on the attack. Billa Very good evening to Afghanistan, you and Tom for many weeks and months now. Have illustrated that the trump policy from the first term was to make a deal with the Taliban and withdraw as much of the American presidents as possible. And hope for the best. I do not expect the Republicans toe have another direction is your sense bill that the military is quit with Afghanistan? As much as the political apparatus is quit, are there of two minds here? Good evening to you, Bill. Good evening, John. Yes. So I agree with you. The Trump Administration is not going to change policy in Afghanistan, Um, barring some type of major events. Um, it's it's just both sides of the aisle are pushing the end The endless wars narrative, which, of course is ridiculous, because the jihadists have a say, and they're going to keep fighting when we leave, of course. We could. You could say something like we wantto end our involvement in these wars. Fine, But the wars will continue our enemies get a vote, and they're nowhere near tired of fighting. The U. S. First the U. S military goes for Afghanistan. Give US military as a whole. Once out of Afghanistan, it's been a drain on their resource is on their energy. Um, I don't. I think they don't see an end. There. They feel again. I'm not speaking for the entire military. And this was the sense I get from millet, you know, from top military leaders. Who have basically signed on signed off on this policy. There's been no objection publicly to this policy of, uh, negotiating with the Taliban and cutting a deal with them, even though they support Al Qaeda. In the meantime, the Taliban and there is Taliban Afghanistan. In several iterations, there's Taliban, Pakistan and several generations the Taliban is preparing for Nearly triumph, but rule I follow from your posting at long word general that Tariq eat Taliban. Pakistan is congratulating the Muslim UMA in general and the Mujahideen in particular on the merger of the two main groups of jihad in Pakistan. Can we regard this as a temporary merger because and they'll be back to fighting over cities or is there some collective push now for the Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghanistan Taliban to work together? So I think there's a push for the Pakistani Taliban in the Afghan Taliban already work close together, Um they Pakistani Taliban fighters have refocused their efforts to Afghanistan. After Pakistani military operations against them. Remember the Pakistanis play a double game? You're You're a good jihadist If you fight in Afghanistan are cashmere, but you're bad jihadists in the fight against the Pakistani state. So this merger that came up really? I found a little surprising because I could point back to a statement in 2015, where the one of the two groups of it's called One of them's Hezbollah, Har. Um, you know, so it had announced that it already merged with the movement of the calibre, or should I say there were ties broken during the turmoil back in 14 4015 with Mullah Omar staffed and when Melissa was alone took over the Pakistani Taliban. Ah, lot of inside baseball, but I won't go into but they had already announced that they had reunited, so something has happened here. Within the last five years. I think this is really sort of There was probably some kind of personality dispute, and I think a lot of this is for propaganda anyway. Really, to just say, hey, look, we're all unified. We're all going to, you know, operate under the same command when I think essentially they were doing the same thing. I go to Africa because you are a U is a long word General have resource is to cover the story of Al Shabaab. We spoke recently of their surprisingly professional looking videos of their recruiting on their training. Now we have a report from long word general of Al Shabaab on the attack hotel military base suicide assault, reminding me that this is a very sophisticated outfit trained with Al Qaeda, Sze Ah complex attacks as Al Shabaab growing and strength to your measure, it does the next Trump administration need to pour more resource is or get out as well. Yes. Oh, Africa has always been fascinating, particularly Somalia. I think some outside of the Taliban Shabbab is the most effective jihadist insurgency in the world. They have They continually take the fight to the rump some Somali government they control 25% of the country despite the fact that you have the African Union and the US and what they could piece together the Somali military and police. To oppose them, and they're there have very good propaganda. As you noted, It's improved a lot over the years and there are very effective at conducting their attacks and keeping their their fighters. Trained and keeping them in the rank and file. Remember, there's been an attempt by the Islamic state to poach from Shabaab, but it's been largely unsuccessful. Not only did they have they conducted major attacks on military bases and hotels, yet another town this one outside of the town of Baidoa, which eyes in sorry the city. If I go, it's probably the second largest city in southern Somalia. Um they took over the town after the Somali military withdrew in the Somali military withdrew from that town because Shabaab was besieging it, so I think Um, I always reluctant to say they're growing in strength. Thes groups have sort of There's an Evan flow to the fighting, and sometimes particularly went outside groups. When the African Union and the US start piling on them. They have some issues, but they're able to await it out. That's the one thing these John, one of the several things that they have. To their advantage. They have the time. You know, that old saying goes, we have all the clocks, but they have all the time While they're very patient in their fight. They're very patient in their jihad. While we have men may have sophisticated military equipment, that's the clocks. They have the time and patients in the will to fight these battles, not enough terms of the US election cycles but in terms of decades Built in general. Now we're at the crossroads for another administration, either, Mr Trump second. Mr Biden's first. Is there any indication pattern worldwide that Al Qaeda is waiting for that decision, or are they staying on the offensive? Matt, no matter who wins. Yeah, I think there are on the offensive. No matter who wins. They do follow the political situation here, but I think they've come to the conclusion that this is just my opinion here. But I think they've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter again that end the endless wars narrative and and the actions by the U. S government over two successive administrations. Policies of withdrawn, scaled down and whatnot would look to us is withdrawing troops from Iraq. It just closed that the major based ontology or at least US personnel being at that base. Almost 2000 troops are coming out of there. Um, they see this all and nature there taking it all in, and they realized that the end of our fight in administration is not going to counter act. These measures. Bill Rocha

Weekly $600 Jobless Benefit Set to Expire Soon as Lawmakers Negotiate Extension

"Million Americans, They're still unemployed, and lawmakers must decide whether to renew a weekly $600 payment in additional jobless benefits. Joining us live now is Bob Cusack, editor in chief of the Hill. Father had been talk of trying to complete negotiations on this by next week. Of course, that now seems highly unlikely, which means that additional $600 in jobless benefits will likely lamps. That's right. That's right, Mark and it's AH, There was just a joint statement issued by Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, basically going after the Republicans for not Doing anything. Over the last couple months, They've been bickering over a payroll tax bill. They have not released text of their bill and some Republicans in the Senate are upset that they are looking to pass something that could cost certainly. Over a trillion dollars, if not over $2 trillion. So, ah lot of divisions in the GOP and it doesn't look as you mentioned like there's going to be any deal anytime soon. I think the earliest we can expect a deal. Is AA in the first week of August. And as you mentioned those those jobless benefits are going to expire. That plus $600 Republicans say, Ah, that's a disincentive to work because we're getting some people getting more money to stay at home, then tow work, so not a lot of problems this week is the bottom line. No Bob. Some Republicans want to end this added benefit, as you say Some others want to replace it with something else. But there may be complications in making a change at the state level and and that could hold up the entire Billa's. There's the vicar about this could Congress passed some elements of this relief package, as the White House suggested, or are they intent on doing it as one complete bill? Well, Pelosi was indicating that she wants one bill that that this should not be a piecemeal type of thing that they should include everything. And I think there's probably gonna be some kind of compromise where maybe not 600 But it could be 2 to $400. But the principles are nowhere close on this, and this could really drag possibly into the second week of August.
