Whats holding up more coronavirus relief?

"In which the theme of the program is negotiating on Capitol Hill yes, over big consequential money things. Also between you and your kids over maybe less consequential money things. From American public media. This is marketplace. In Los Angeles I'm Carl result. Tuesday, today I do believe the twenty eighth day of July good as always to have your long everybody. We, begin today with a trio of stories on the economic issue of the day other than the virus, of course, which is an economic story as well lest we forget. But we speak here and now of the rescue package that Congress is about to start really digging into Democrats, in the House and Republicans in the Senate getting down to it up I in our stories, playing off a quote from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on CNBC this afternoon that he is not going to negotiate with Democrats. That's the quote I am not negotiating over this over corporate corona virus liability protections in this bill. They're going to be in their. McConnell says, or there won't be a bill. Marketplace's Mariel Sarah gets going with a look at the full lines on this issue. As businesses reopen in a pandemic. They're faced with this reality. Even if they require masks and social distancing and provide hand sanitizer, it still may not stop somebody from Contracting Cronin virus from somebody else. That may be at their place of business that could mean inexpensive lawsuit, and even the demise of a business, so the GOP relief package would make it a lot harder for customers or Or workers to win a covid related lawsuit against business. There are some exceptions in the bill. If you're grossly negligent or you intentionally engage in harmful behavior. If you are acting that way, you're not going to be protected and you shouldn't be. The thing is gross negligence. That's one of the terms from the bill is a really high legal Bar David Super teaches law at Georgetown University. Doesn't just mean you were sloppy. Your Carolina's. worsely. As sort of the equivalent of drunk driving in the wrong direction on on interstate lawyers for workers or customers would also have to prove that business was not making reasonable efforts to comply with local covid safety rules Debra. Mark us and Employment Attorney, who represents workers at Sanford. heisler sharp says all of this would send a message to companies that kicking risks with the lives of workers and customers won't harm their bottom line. That's an incredibly dangerous message to send during a pandemic now. Even though there's been a lot of debate about this so far, there haven't been that many covid related personal injury lawsuits against businesses of very small percentage of corona virus lawsuits fall into that category according to the law firm Hunting Andrews Kurth. I'm Maryelle, Sierra for marketplace. Another key sticking point in whatever this bill is gonNA wind up looking like expanded unemployment benefits. We've covered that a lot. So the broad outlines you know, Senate, Republicans WanNa cut those benefits from six hundred dollars a week to two hundred dollars a week until state unemployment systems can be reprogrammed to make the payments equal seventy percent of a now laid off workers previous income. That's complicated, but it's incredibly relevant. It's also going to take awhile eight to twenty weeks. Reports are. But with that marketplace's remember shore has this on the political costs and benefits of those unemployment checks denise coach Runs Turquoise Restaurant in midtown West in Manhattan as restaurants reopened their last month, she started calling her staff back to work, and some said No. The dolder unemployment was paying them more than what she would on an average down getting eight hundred nine hundred dollars a week. Some of them didn't even use to make this much per week. She said it complicated reopening. Reopening. You know we did get some PD from the government, but that becoming into turned into a grant line on part of it being used as payroll, and of course, it's very hard to get you know the people back as the expiration date for benefits got closer Kojak says workers eventually came back now. There is a debate over how common coach situation is Joseph. Vavra is at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business Lots of workers in the economy are. Eligible for unemployment benefits which exceed their lost wages, but he says it's not clear how often that causes someone to not take a job? People value certainty he says, and some workers may go back to work for health care. For example, he also says if an employer reports that it has re offered a job to a laid off employees, and that employee declined to come back because they make more unemployment. That worker is no longer eligible for benefits to me. It seems less likely. The worker is going to refuse to go back to work in this very uncertain labor market right now Heidi shareholders. Shareholders with the Economic Policy Institute, she says some amount of expanded unemployment benefits is a good idea beyond their current expiration date government spending on unemployment insurance benefit is one of the most, if not the most effective thing. The federal government can do for stimulating the economy Margolin with the committee for a responsible federal budget, says unemployment benefits can't stay so high indefinitely without potentially slowing recovery, but now is not the time to make drastic cuts. Probably the smart thing to do is to unwind it slowly. How slowly well that is! What is being negotiated right now? In New York suburban for marketplace. Among, the more hidden realities of this pandemic, and what it's doing to people in this economy is the sharp increase in the number of people who need food assistance. The Agriculture Department is going to start the third round of its food box distribution program in September. The idea is to package up food from farmers that might otherwise have gone to waste. Think meat and produce dairy and get it to needy families. Marketplace's Justin who looked into how that's been going so far. Idaho foodbanks started distributing food boxes through the program about two months ago. Chief Development Officer Morgan Wilson says it's mobile trucks, its partners and it's drive through centers have distributed boxes to nearly thirty thousand families so far they're asked very simple questions around how many people are in their household? And then that food is loaded directly into either their car, their trunk with very minimal context Wilson says it does require a lot of coordination. The Food Bank works with vendors who package those boxes. Those vendors work with farmers who have. Have lost a market for many of their crops. Jared's Lindy at the great. Plains Food Bank and North Dakota says his program is bringing in about a million pounds of produce each month. It's coming from us. Farmers getting trucked up to us from states away. Food boxes can be helpful in the short run, says Craig Gundersen a professor of economics at the University of Illinois, but long term he food boxes can't help people at the scale of the government's food. Benefits program snap if you're put together these boxes to Santa. Given. Just. Be just enormous. Gunderson says the average benefit under snap is about two hundred seventy five dollars a month. The maximum can be much more in packing up. All that food in a box would be expensive all of the expensive Dairy and Meat Matt, he says snap benefits also help people choose what food to buy themselves rather than having to rely on. What's in the box? I'm Justin Ho for marketplace. Couple indicators. Ride into the rest of the program, crude oil lost a percent and a half today right around forty dollars. A Barrel Gold Scott Tong was talking about this yesterday up to one thousand, nine, hundred forty four dollars an ounce remember as Scott's it. Rising gold usually means falling confidence. Such was the case in stocks as well on this Tuesday not very confident session on Wall Street. We'll have the details when we do the numbers. There are now government mask requirements of one sort or another, in more than thirty states companies to have masked policies, and yet there is resistance to what public health experts say are the keys to fighting? This virus masks social distancing and staying home when possible. It is kind of a head scratcher. Honestly, but behavioral economists not so surprised because it turns out that a lot of times people make decisions that are in the words of one Nobel Prize winning economist. Predictably irrational marketplace got has that. Study after study suggests that humans are good followers. We tend to make decisions about whether were helmet or give blood. How much alcohol to drink that are really similar to those who live by us. who think like us? Perhaps even shop like us in Upper Michigan Grad student. Audrey Bauman says in the pandemic. She seemed mask wearing very hugely editor to local supermarkets, Walmart versus Meyer Meyer. Say like masking about sixty seventy percent walmart. I would say like ten to twenty. It was a big difference. The stores are right by each other same town, same highway town of ten thousand or something. We should note that Walmart has just required masks at all its stores. Conscious, or not, many of us choose whether to mask based on our team based on our identity researchers at Syracuse University found that the biggest predictor from asks is not age. It's not location is party. In! A new Gallup poll seems to confirm that or the ninety percent of Democrats always or very often wear masks compared to forty, some for Republicans, Psychologist Gretchen Chapman teaches decision science at Carnegie Mellon. Our behavior is guided by so many more factors than just the facts that we know now what are other people like us doing what does might behavior say about the groups that I belong with? But why? Why do studies fine? We use less electricity when we're told that her neighbor cuts back behavioral economists. CNN Bano. What swarthmore says this tendency to follow is a powerful rule of thumb. It's a mental shortcut leaves. We really lean on the behavior of others around us. If you think about single decision as one you have to rationally think through the costs and benefits. You would never get anything done today. He calls this a social norm in as the pandemic. It's worse than norm of mask. Wearing is in general trending up, but poll suggests social distancing not so much gene hide who owns a printing shop in Little Rock. Arkansas complains about her supermarket. He will weren't following the little. Go One way aisles, and just cutting in front of you to grab, but they wanted it was like the mask was the superhero, and you don't have to social distance if you've got one of those. When people go against expert advice, can you persuade them to change? Maybe consider the sad campaign from the Eighties Tell all your babies don't mess with. THAT FAMILIAR PHRASE! Don't mess with Texas. Actually came from this state marketing campaign to end littering. Broke cans from them. Don't let them throw bottles and papers. Seems. Texans listen to old willy. Nelson organizers said in four years? Littering fell seventy one percent. And today, Montana is trying a similar message with posters and digital ads, featuring masked men doing. Things like fishing and riding snowmobiles, the caption Montana's wear face coverings all the time again, Ciano. When you're hunting, you cover your face when you're out skiing. This isn't that different than that. That's trying to de stigmatize. mask-wearing thing is these public health actions can be hard to sustain. They require sacrifice mask-wearing social distancing. You stay at home. You know you don't get to do the fun things with your friends, so you're wearing a personal cost and you don't get an immediate reward so in the math. Math of behavioral economics. The cost outweighs the benefit again. Decision Scientists Gretchen Chapman. It's also hard to get people to recycle and conserve energy. Get vaccinated. We are only partially successful at all of those behaviors. There's no reason to think that mask wearing would be special. She says the good news is people. Do stick with something. If there's an instant reward, we brush our teeth because of the mindy feeling after. And just so you know there are scented masks out there peppermint and bubblegum. Flavor. I'm Scott Tong for marketplace. There's been a big jump. yelp says in searches on that platform for black owned businesses. For Mega Anderson, though she's the founder of the empowerment experiment, buying from black owned businesses is more than just a trend. We had Maggie and her husband John on the program back in two thousand twelve when a book came out, it's called our black year, so it years later. We got back on the phone. I'm Maggie Anderson I am the creator of the empowerment experiment. And, the author of our black year, my family's year long stand completely. Living off of black owned businesses. When we decided to take on this public pledge, we had no idea. How hard it would be! There was only one black owned grocery store all of. Illinois. And that grocery store closed five months before we finished our year. and I have two little girls that means no fresh milk, no fresh meats, no I produce. but I put them through that because we took the stand and we wanted really to do something extreme out of love for our community to expose how few black businesses there still are to refute a negative stereotypes about black on businesses. and to expose economic injustice still persists in America. After the year. I decided that I could not go back to corporate. I could not go back to law. I've made this. Issue of economic racism and really trying to create economic empowerment. In our black community, my life. The black hair chair firms they eat a sustained the civil rights movement. Black women created these companies huge thriving companies and we needed that we talk about black. Wall Street now because we signed light on what happened in Tulsa. Most. Black neighborhoods were anchored by these Black Wall Street's. And we could bring that back. America would be better. I'm not saying. Bring all the back. That would probably be impossible, but we can burn black hair care back. There are great black hair care companies that exist black owned hair care company that exists right now. And it would be wonderful for in America. Just like other groups own their culturally relevant products and industries that the black community can own the biggest black hair care brands that the black community can own black beauty supply stores. Three percent of the beauty supply stores and black neighborhoods and people know people. Black people know what I'm talking about. If you go into a black neighborhood, you're going to see a beauty supply store and they're going to sell all the black hair care products that only black people use. And, they are not owned by black people so I've issued the black owned haircare challenge just asking everyday folks to say. Hi My name's Maggie. Anderson and I accept the black owned haircare challenge and tell the world that from now on. I'm going to buy black hair care products I'm gonNA. Make sure it's from a blackout come. Megi Anderson and Oak Park Illinois. We got a link by the way to the black own haircare challenge at marketplace dot. Org while you're there. Take a second if you've got. Tell us about your personal economy. Coming up. Maybe it's too pricey or maybe just too expensive or something way they both the same thing. A revelation on parents speak and negotiations, but first. Let's do the numbers. Now industrials off two hundred five points today, seven, ten, percent, twenty, six, thousand, three, seventy, nine, the Nasdaq down one hundred thirty four points. At is one point, two percent, ten, thousand, four of two S and p five hundred shrink twenty points about six tenths percent, thirty, two and eighteen, seven, hundred sixty five million dollars. That's how much the federal government is going to lend. Eastman Kodak yes used to be photography. Company still exists in a different form the under the Defense Production Act. is going to help. Kodak give its manufacturing pharmaceutical ingredients, news of the loan tripled the value of shares in Kodak. You're listening to marketplace. This is marketplace I'm Kai Ryssdal? You've got a couple of months yet to say goodbye. O, the Oprah magazine hearst as announced that this year's December issue is going to be its last regular print edition. Oh is just latest in a long line of glossies that have either stopped publishing altogether. Allah redbook Glamour or paused publication. which is what W did a couple of months ago. Marketplace's Eric Embarrass reports now on the pandemic economics of women's magazines. The glossies were already struggling. Then came the covid nineteen pandemic. This could be a final straw that some of them might go under that cf Ra analysts Camilla Yannick Stefanski many of the retailers that we're still buying advertising space in women's magazines are shifting to digital, because that's where people are spending their time and their money to my cedary, who teaches luxury marketing at nyu says the magazines have to change just like the industry they depend on in the past magazines were functioning innocence may fashion brand functions now with fewer fashion shows and more digital launches and reliance on social media personalities a magazine. Magazine that's bad months in advance doesn't make much sense. The way people buy magazines has changed to Lisa Pico a bear. A journalism professor at USC Annenberg Says Women's titles dependent on people picking up issues here and there like before boarding a plane well, we're not flying, so people aren't in the airport buying magazines. We certainly aren't going to newsstands and just hanging out and looking at magazines to choose because of covid nineteen. We aren't even in spaces where we're buying those magazines and we're not hanging out in doctor's waiting rooms and salons where we might flip through a copy. That's just sitting there. The culture has changed to says Harry Brown. A professor of Magazine News and Digital Journalism at Syracuse University Women's magazines presented a narrow ideal of beauty, and so that's a problem and I'm not sure that audiences are really looking for that. Anymore Brown says she will miss some of the work. These magazines have done such as their pioneering work on women's health. I'm Eric Harris for marketplace. Millions of Americans are struggling to pay their rents or their mortgages. We've talked about that and while correlation is not causation. A record number of people, especially young adults are moving back in with her parents. That's pretty common in a lot of cultures, but in the United States there's always been something of a stigma right around living with your family once you're in adults, but given this virus and the associated economy. Might be changing marketplace Jasmine gars reports two months ago, eating K. and made a difficult decision.

Eden stories increasingly common in America Jeff Tucker is an economist with Zillow. He authored a report which found during this economic crisis. The number of adults living with their parents jumped by about ten percent this spring, starting in April that's about almost three million people, the trend of adults living with parents and grandparents growing because of the pandemic, but it isn't new between two thousand and two thousand seventeen, the number of twenty five to thirty four year olds living with their parents doubled.

"Live from NPR news. I'm Lakshmi saying some of the nation's governors are firing back against the idea of having states file for bankruptcy. They've been clamoring for more federal funding to fight the virus outbreaks in their states but after approving trillions an emergency relief including another massive package on the verge of passing Congress. Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell says it's time to hit pause he says Republicans are not ready to write a blank check. Mcconnell is now floating the idea of changing laws to allow financially distressed states to enter into bankruptcy proceedings in New York which is taking a debilitating financial hit in its struggle to contain the outbreak governor. Andrew Cuomo says McConnell's latest proposal is quote one of the really dumb ideas of all times. Think of what he's saying people died. Fifteen thousand people died in New York but they predominantly Democrats. So why should we help them for crying out loud? If there was ever a time for you to put aside your pettiness Cuomo says this is no time to play. Politics states are worried about a shortage in blood supply the middle of a public health emergency.

But the attorneys general all Democrats argued that instead of targeting gay and bisexual men. Blood donors should be screened based on risk behavior. They cited an analysis from the Williams institute at Ucla that estimated lifting the ban on gay men would produce three hundred thousand pints of blood annually which could save one million lives.

Prince Charles testing positive is a reminder that the coronavirus does not discriminate

"The daily Tutu's big idea is sponsored by DMC technology. Let us show you the way to your digital future thrive on change Good Morning I'm James Home in from the Washington Post and this is the daily two for Wednesday March twenty fifth in today's news. The Senate and the White House finalized a deal on a to trillion dollar stimulus package. India's one point. Three billion people are now under a three week lockdown and in some hopeful news because the virus is not mutating quickly a vaccine could offer lasting protection but first the big idea Prince Charles. The future King of Britain has tested positive for the corona virus. His spokesman said he has mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health. The seventy one year old Prince of Wales is a man of robust health. He enjoys physical activity including horseback riding. It's a reminder that no one is safe. This virus doesn't care if you're rich or poor white black or brown man or woman and it also doesn't care how old you are yesterday. The coronavirus killed playwright terrence McNally. Who chronicled gay lives and rose to the forefront of American theater with works such as love valor compassion and masterclass. He was eighty one. Alan Finder retired New York Times reporter. Who is an all around class? Act Really Generous. Guy Died yesterday at seventy two from the virus colleagues. Remember him not just as a terrific reporter but a calming presence in the newsroom and one of the men she guys around a thirty six year old principle from Brooklyn also died of the virus yesterday. Dozen Romaine is the first known death of a city public school employees from that outbreak Los Angeles County. Health officials announced what they believed to be the first corona virus in the United States of someone younger than eighteen confirming that will require additional testing but the minor had no pre existing conditions. Corona virus also killed two more Georgia healthcare workers as that state reported its twenty fifth fatality. One of the victims of forty two year old mammogram technician was found dead in her home. She'd been dead twelve to sixteen hours when police checking on her welfare discovered her body. Her Child. A four year old was home at the time. He didn't know what to do when his mom died. Former Texas am basketball star. David Edwards died at forty eight yesterday from complications of the virus. Harvard President Lawrence Picasso and his wife have tested positive. Amazon workers at six. Us warehouses now if tested positive a thirty one year old Mexican immigrant being held at a detention facility in New Jersey became the first detainee in ice custody to test positive someone in Kentucky tested positive after attending corona virus. Party talk about tempting fate. Climate Change Activists. Greta Thunberg says she likely has a mild case. She says she's been feeling tired. Had Shivers a sore throat coughing? A lot her dad experienced the same symptoms but much more intense in with a fever. The seventeen year old set on instagram. The federal government is instructing anyone who recently visited New York City or the surrounding suburbs to self quarantine for fourteen days. New York health experts predict the state will need about one hundred and forty thousand hospital beds to handle this crisis. Exceeding last week's estimate by thirty thousand New York Governor Andrew. Cuomo said yesterday that the state only has fifty three thousand beds. Tony found she from the. Nih says they believe that at least one out of every thousand people in New York now has the corona virus. New York has more than twenty five thousand confirmed cases including fifteen thousand in New York City. The state has added about five thousand new cases per day in Cuomo expects those trends to accelerate every day for the next fourteen to twenty one days in Florida Governor Ron Disentis is urging all New Yorkers to stay away from the Sunshine State. He spent yesterday amplifying his order requiring anyone flying into Florida from the New York area to self isolate for two weeks upon arrival. His order applies to people who enter Florida by plane. But it doesn't apply to those who continue streaming into the state down interstate ninety five several small. American islands on our West and east coast from Hawaii to Maine are experimenting with total isolation to stop the spread. They're not letting anyone come in. And we're hearing from more people who were fighting the virus themselves or combatting it on their front line about just how hellish it really is. My colleague David Andreoli. Who's based out of Kansas City for us? Says he probably has a mild moderate case of the virus and he doesn't think he could survive much worse. The closest he could get to being. Tested was on Saturday after his wife spent an entire day on the phone. A nice met him in an emergency room parking lot and told them to put on a mask then. She had him stand by his car while she listened to his lungs. She smiled told him to assume he has it and only to come back if he gets much worse. His first symptom was fever and he says his experience. Mix Garden Variety. Flu seem like a tea party. The doctors though have much bigger fears than cases like David's Dr Xiaoli Chandra Hurry an internal medicine resident at New York. Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center says that you're not prepared for this pandemic until you've had a conversation with someone about end of life care a few days ago. Someone was dying in one of her rooms because they couldn't breathe. They were going into cardiac arrest result but she had to yell at her colleagues who were rushing into the room because they weren't wearing masks in gear. The last thing she wanted was for any of her coworkers to be exposed given the bodily fluids they knew they were about to encounter and she knew there was nothing they'd be able to do to make the patient survive she writes that were already in this doomsday situation. And it's not going to get any easier doctor Daniele Llamas. A critical care. Doctor hasn't even more painful story as an ICU. Doc She's used to giving bad news but she wasn't prepared for last week when the hospital said that corona virus patients can no longer accept visitors. She had to go tell the visitors not bad for the times she recalls going into one person's room where a woman lay dying tethered to a ventilator by the tracheostomy Tube Internet her husband sat in a small plastic chair beside her with his hand on her leg smiling at a silly sitcom playing on the TV. She had to tell him that. This was the last time you get to see his wife because when he walked out of that room he'd never be allowed back in. It's a tough decision. That hospitals are making and it's leaving patients to suffer through their fight for survival in a medical version of solitary confinement. And that's the big up here are three other headlines that should be on your radar midway through this week number one Senate leaders and the trump administration reached an agreement around one thirty. Am Today on a two trillion dollar stimulus package to rescue our economy from the corona virus. Assault setting the stage for swift passage of the massive legislation through both chambers of Congress. Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell and minority leader Chuck Schumer announced the breakthrough on the floor after a long day of talks with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and other administration officials the legislation unprecedented in its size and scope aims to flood the economy with capital by sending twelve. Hundred dollar checks too. Many Americans creating a three hundred sixty seven billion dollar loan program for small businesses and setting up a five hundred billion dollar bailout fund for Industries Cities and states other provisions include a massive boost to unemployment insurance one hundred fifty billion dollars for state and local governments and one hundred thirty billion dollars for hospitals. Mcconnell says the Senate will pass the legislation later today with the House out of session action there could take a little longer depending on whether lawmakers can agree to pass the bill by unanimous consent which require agreement from every member of the chamber. That's a heavy lift. The delay in finalising deal came in part because aides launched painstaking scrub of the text to make sure that one of the most ambitious pieces of legislation ever passed by Congress thrown together in a few days actually says what lawmakers want it to say Senate. Republicans were being extra meticulous because they felt burned by the earlier and much smaller coronavirus relief. Bill which MNUCHIN negotiated with Nancy Pelosi earlier this month it turned out to have provisions related to paid sick leave the GOP senators strongly opposed but which they reluctantly accepted. Now they're double and triple checking MNUCHIN worked in brokering deal with Schumer given the enormous stakes as lawmakers near their deal. The White House made a significant concession to democratic demands agreeing to allow enhanced scrutiny over the massive loan program that's a centerpiece of the two trillion dollar bill. This is pertaining to that five hundred billion dollar package of money of that amount. Four hundred twenty five billion is supposed to go to businesses. An additional fifty billion would go to passenger airlines as well as eight billion for cargo airlines in seventeen billion for firms that are deemed critical to national security. Trump has already said he wants some of the money to go to the cruise ship industry. Any also wants assistance for hotels but during closed door negotiations on Capitol Hill White House. Officials have agreed to allow an independent inspector general. An Oversight Board to scrutinize the lending decisions number to India's one point. Three billion. People are now under a strict three-week lockdown for the next twenty one days there will be severe restrictions on commerce and movement across the length and breadth of India even at the height of its battle against the virus. China never imposed nationwide lockdown like this yesterday. India had about five hundred confirmed cases but the numbers growing exponentially testing remains limited and there are signs the viruses spreading undetected. Prime Minister Narendra. Modi made clear that the country was a critical juncture in a televised address. He said if we don't manage these twenty one days the country will be set back twenty one years Malaysia. The world's main producer of medical gloves has cut its factory staff in half amid new restrictions aimed at stemming outbreak in that country but it highlights the vulnerability of our own supply chain because we're dependent on those gloves. India has banned the export meanwhile of Hydrochloric Queen. One of those drugs that the president claimed could treat the buyers. South Korea has agreed to send spare medical equipment to the US after trump pleaded with their president and personally made the request in a phone call Iranian President Hassan Ronnie announced new restrictions to close public parks in that country man travel for Iranians in Europe. They're trying to contain the virus with unprecedented offers to pay private sector salaries France Germany Denmark Britain and a few other countries had decided to take over the payrolls of they're struggling companies. So that workers won't get laid off the hope. Is that by paying people to stay home. Governments can slow. The spread of the virus will averting a total economic depression. But the pricey gamble will maybe work if the crisis last few months since companies won't be able to exit they're frozen status almost immediately but if the restrictions drag on the financial supports could straddle European governments with gigantic and unsustainable bills will also failing to avert the total collapse of business and in Russia. The official count of cases suspiciously low. Even Moscow mayor. An ally of Latimer Putin is publicly questioning him. Spanning two continents ravaged by the pandemic Russia has a population of one hundred forty five million but only four ninety five confirmed cases of the Crow Virus. And just one reported death. But it seems like what they're doing is the Kremlin is counting corona virus deaths as pneumonia cases. Putin says he has the situation under control but then state television showed footage. Yesterday of him wearing a full has met suit while visiting a hospital in Moscow looking panicky only one continent at this point remains untouched by the virus Antarctica. Some four thousand people from around the world watched virus progress from the barren continent where it'd be highly unlikely they catch the disease but if they do it'd be quite risky. Most of those Arctic basis would struggle to contain infection that spreads the way. This one does number three. I desperately want to wrap up today with some glimmer of good news. Is the situation continues to deteriorate. So here's this. The Corona virus is not mutating significantly as it circulates through the human population. According to several scientists were closely studying the genetic code of the pathogen the relative stability suggests the virus is less likely to become more or less dangerous as it spreads which represents encouraging news for researchers hoping to create a long lasting vaccine all viruses evolve over time accumulating mutations as they replicate imperfectly inside host cells in tremendous numbers and then spread through a population with some of those mutations persisting through natural selection. We talked about this yesterday. The new corona virus has proofreading machinery. However and that reduces the error rate and the pace of mutation according to the scientists. We've been talking to. It looks pretty much the same everywhere. It's appeared around the globe. And there's no evidence that some strains are deadlier than others. The new virus that Causes Kovic nineteen appears quite similar to the karinna viruses that circulate naturally in bats remember this virus jumped into the human species in Wuhan China likely through an intermediate species possibly an endangered ant eater whose scales are trafficked for traditional medicine by the Chinese. Scientists are now studying more than a thousand different samples of the current virus. There are only about four to ten genetic differences between the strains that have been -ffected people here in the US and the original virus that spread in China. That's a really small number and it means that a single vaccine might be able to do the trick once it's developed. That's the good news. The bad news is that well. Several vaccines are in development. Experts still estimate that it will be at least a year and maybe up to eighteen months before one becomes commercially available. And that's the daily two. Oh two for Wednesday march twenty-fifth. Thanks for listening. I'm James Home. Stay safe I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Hacked, Again

"From new york times. I'm michael borrow this. A today. the operation went undetected for months giving foreign agents access to the inner workings of american government. My colleague david sanger on who was behind the attack and why it keeps happening to the. Us it's wednesday. December sixteenth u. s. officials believe russia is behind a massive cyber attack targeting the us treasury and commerce departments sources say. It may be one of the biggest and most sophisticated hacks in years and it may have been launched in the spring packers appear to have access to sensitive information as far back as march officials are scrambling to try to figure out what data was taken. What other departments may have been breached the actors behind this campaign gained access to numerous public and private organizations around the world. Government official telling reuters quote. This is a much bigger story than one single agency. This is a huge cyber espionage campaign targeting the us government and its interest. David tell me about this attack or michael. We're still learning a lot and there's a lot we have to say we don't really know yet. But here's what we have pieced together sometime around march a very sophisticated group of hackers who clearly worked for a nation state. We believe russian intelligence broke into the computer systems of a range of us government agencies. The treasury the commerce department the los alamos national laboratory which makes nuclear weapons and designs the state department. But at the time. No one saw any of this. And so as we've been able to go reconstructed in recent days. It looks like one of the reasons we missed. It was that it was an incredibly sophisticated approach. In which the hacker whose didn't go right after those different institutions didn't try to get directly into their networks but instead they got into a kind of software that government agencies fortune five hundred companies the new york times all use. It is a software made by a company called solar winds in texas. Most consumers have never heard of them. I had barely heard of them until a few days ago. And what they make is network monitoring software. So it's a real sort of backroom engineering thing but the brilliance of attacking through this software is that you're essentially getting into the supply chain that feeds the rest of the us government and corporate america. And so you don't need to break into companies or agencies if you can get into the software it will take you into the government agencies. What do you mean so imagine michael. This wasn't a cyber attack but it was in the physical world and you were trying to take out a bunch of tanks that were being produced for the army. One way to do it would be to try to creep into the tank factory and you know sabotage the parts but you might get caught and if you got caught you'd probably either get shot or arrested. Wouldn't it be easier to get into much smaller company that feeds ball bearings to the tank. And make sure that always ball bearings were flattened on one side. So you've been a lot more effective and you've taken a lot less risk so these hackers got into the ball bearings of these government agencies online presence. They got into solar wind the ball bearing in the metaphor and they screwed data. That's right so once they got into this solar winds network monitoring software that nobody usually pays attention to accept if you're an. It engineer sitting in the back room. Then they suddenly had tremendous access well throughout the system and if they were careful about it they could keep that access without getting caught even. Why are we convinced that. This was russian hackers. They leave behind any evidence that allows us to say Those are the marks of russia. Well a few things. First the skill level this was done with a precision and with an understanding of the systems that ninety seven percent of the world's best hackers wouldn't have the time or the resources to pull off the second thing is they use certain techniques that have been seen before by the russians. It had the markings not just of the russians but of a particular intelligence agency within russia called the vr. This is the group a successor to the old kgb from soviet days that is out there mostly for espionage purposes that said the it's entirely conceivable that a few months from now we could come to a conclusion that the early findings were wrong. But nobody that. I've spoken to in the both government or in the private sector seems to have a whole lot of doubt here. So what did these presumed russian hackers actually take or look at to know at this point so michael. That's what everyone wants to know. And it's the biggest mystery right now. We do know that. The russians were into the email systems at the treasury department in one particular agency of the commerce department that deals with technology and internet issues We know that they were into the state department. Where in the past. They have broken in before and have obviously interested in both diplomatic communications but also trying to find diplomats. Who maybe undercovers spies. We know that they were inside. The los alamos nuclear laboratory and their interest. There is clear. That's the place where we design nuclear weapons think about cyber issues and and Encryption issues and so forth so sounds like classic espionage and it sounds like a pretty bad case of it if the united states russia rooting around in highly sensitive corners of agencies and getting the kind of information that any government zealously seeks to protect. That's absolutely right and let's face it. This is highly embarrassing for the world's greatest suburb superpower right and so i can imagine that the trump administration in its last. Five weeks in office isn't especially interested in admitting that under their watch. Hold departments of government cleaned out dividend. The beginning precaution. You said this attack had begun in march but we have only just seem to learn about it a couple of weeks ago. Which i'm doing. My math correctly suggests that russian hackers have been rooting around and our government systems for like eight or nine months. Which is a really long time. So why did it take so long. Well that's a really great question. Michael and part of the answer. I think is a technical one that the us government has basically set up sensors throughout its own networks looking for hackers coming in trying to steal passwords and so forth. But none of that. God set off here and the reason for that is they had gotten into this software. That was legitimately considered a part of the us systems. And then there may be one of the thing michael. It could have been the distraction of the election What do you mean. Well for the past year. The national security agency general paul nakasone. You also runs united states. Cyber command has said his number one responsibility was to protect this election against foreign attackers and so he was looking for attacks on the election. Networks on the registration systems on voting machines on halley. Right legitimate thing to do given what's happened in the reason it's so they were all looking over here and i may be the russians who understood exactly what we were doing. Thought this would be a great opportunity to go. Rob the bank while the police are down the street trying to stop a riot but voice serious note. Look there's a reason that. I call this the perfect weapon. It's dirt cheap. It's virtually invisible. It lends itself to highly skilled engineers. Who could be working half a world away and don't have to physically enter your territory. It's what makes cyber-attacks so hard to defend against. And it's the reason that cyber has become the primary way the primary way that countries seek to undercut each other's power in various forms and for the russians. You know they've been doing this for a quarter century as a long history of this. It's just that they're getting better and better and better. And if there's one lesson from all this michael. It's that american defenses that is both the ability to deter attacks from happening and deal with them when they do has not been anywhere near as effective. As it needs to be very barrack.

I think there's a misconception that the truth is just out there floating in the ether waiting to be plucked. True facts are hard to uncover and hard to get. It takes investment. And that's what we do here at the new york times. I was sitting in the newsroom when new york state got. Its second diagnosed. Case of corona virus actually sprinted to my car and drove up to the city of new rochelle. Which just gone on lockdown. I spent day in and day out there covering the virus trying to make sense of it interviewing people who were ill before we understood much about this illness. So when i came down with the virus i knew exactly where had gotten it and it was out reporting. Would i do it again. Yes it's worth to get answers for readers. Because i think at this moment we need them more than ever. And we need you. You can support us by subscribing to the new york times go to ny times dot com slash subscribe. Thank you david. You started to hint at this. But where does this. Presumed russian cyberattack fit into the history of russian cyberattacks against the united states. Well there's a long history here. Michael but you know it really starts in the mid nineteen nineties when there was an attack called moonlight maze in which the russians guide into the colorado school of mines because they figured out it was connected to a whole bunch of military bases and when the united states saw this. What did they do. Well not much. Charlie than recognize. They had a problem and began to build what ultimately became us cyber command. And then if you speed ahead to say around two thousand and eight there was a famous case in which the russian sprinkle the parking lot of a big based in the middle east with usb keys. You know those kind that you get conventions and hotels and so forth and us service personnel would pick these things up and say oh. I've got a free biki and they would walk into the base where the computer system was separated from the internet and they would put the usb key into the computers and of course download malware and begin to train out some of our most classified communications. What was response to that. They got some superglue and glue closed the usb ports on their desktop computers but what about retaliation against russia. There wasn't really retaliation because the sense was espionage and everyone does as be and then came the third big attack in two thousand fourteen. Two thousand fifteen. The russians went into the unclassified e mails at the white house. The state department the joint chiefs of staff and again the obama administration didn't even call the russians out by name. They sort of. Who is doing this even though they were trying to fight them and get them out of the system and the russians kept coming back just to sort of show they could but they didn't pay a price for it and as a result you know vladimir putin figured well for not gonna defend the white house. Who's going to defend the democratic national committee. Which is basically run by college kids. We're tracking another major story tonight. A case of cyber espionage targeting the democratic party this is arguably the most consequential hack of all of the actual dnc russian hackers and their attempt to interfere in the election. Interesting question of whether it's the most consequential or whether it was just the most public an email scandal forcing florida congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz to step down as party chair the leaked messages implying. The dnc favourite hillary clinton bernie sanders which led to the resignation of the head of the party. Wikileaks has released another batch of emails from clinton campaign chairman john podesta ultimately you read emails which clinton staff is exchanging notes. About what a terrible candidate. She is now clinton team is mocking hillary herself saying even she doesn't know how liberal she is so that was a change of tactic at that point. They weren't just doing espionage. They were trying to go. Use it for political effect but the pattern here seems to be very clear. Russia commits a cyber attack against the united states and the response is not very robust and so russia becomes and bolden and it's tax get even bolder. So why isn't the united states doing whatever it could possibly do to punish russia in a way. That would say don't ever do that again. Part of the reason is trying to control the escalation along the way. And there's always been a great hesitance in the united states. That if you push things too far if you come back with a disproportionate response. You're suddenly escalating into what could be a much larger conflict and everyone's always been cautious about that now. That is an understandable prudent suspension. When you're dealing with nuclear powers like russia or china but it also creates a gray space in which your adversaries think. Well if we just avoid taking out you know all the electric power from boston to washington or seattle to la. No one's going to bomb us instead. They're just gonna do some cyber stuff back to us and you know we can get away with this. So the problem is we had a failure of deterrence and the public. Admission of this came in march. Two thousand eighteen or media committee meets today on paul nakasone head of the. Nsa was up for his confirmation hearing general next. Sonal start with you. You know we've had a number hearings on this committee on cyber strategy. He was asked by a senator. Dan sullivan of alaska's. We seem to be the cyber punching bag of the world. What's your thought on that. And should we start cranking up the costs of the cyber attacks on our nation. What do you think our adversaries think right. Now if you do a cyber attack on america what's going to happen to them so basically I would say right now They do not think that much will happen to them. They don't fear us. They don't feel worse. So is that good. It is not good senator. That's a pretty extraordinary admission. It's an a remarkable admission and when nakasone got into office. He determined that he had to change this so he got a lot more aggressive. And a month ago. I would have said to you. Given the success of keeping the russians out of the election system. this new approach deterrence was beginning to yield some modest results. But i probably gotta go reconsider my view now that we know what was happening with these most recent attacks on these government agencies like the. Us does decide to fight back and ways. Of course it. Most of us can't see but they have not had the intended impact of deterring russia. And it sounds like the reason. We won't take the kind of actions that might truly raise. The stakes is because as you said. We fear that such a response would be inflicted on us after we commit a similar act of cyber war. And that's what we do. We also commit acts of cyber war so it sounds like we're in a little bit of a bind here that's right and it's because cyber is such a different problem than the deterrent issue that we all grew up thinking about and learning about school which was nuclear deterrence right but in nuclear deterrence. We got to a situation where we all avoided using the weapon because we understood mutually assured destruction if you take out new york takeout moscow right. It was pretty binary and there weren't many players you know. The russians had nuclear weapons. Chinese nuclear weapons you know. Six other countries six other adversaries and allies had nuclear weapons. But we we could count them. None of that's true in cyber in cyber scores of countries. Now have cyber weapons the offense stealing something or even putting code in the electric grid but not actually turning off the power. These don't raise up. To the level of acts of war the brilliance of cyber is a weapon. You can adjust it up and down to just avoid going over that red line that creates an act war so the russians in going into the treasury department and the commerce department and all that they weren't any place close to the line they were doing straight up espionage so the question is is everyone going to continue to calibrate their attacks. So they're just below that ill-defined invisible red line or at some point. Somebody's going to go make a mistake and do an attack so big that it actually will escalate but the utility of cyber is not as a weapon of war. Utility of cyber is a weapon short of war but it feels like in the absence of the kind of enormous attack that you just described as kind of a game changer. That seems to be working better for russia than it is for the united states. Does that feel right because they keep acting in bolder and bolder ways and we don't seem to know exactly what to do about it. Well it's true that it is benefiting offense right now and it's not just the russians who are benefiting obviously the chinese iranians north koreans and also us remember. We don't exactly have clean hands here. It's the united states and israel that took out iran's nuclear program with a big cyberattack ten years ago we've done other attacks on missile systems on power grids on all kinds of different targets. But we've always worked on the assumption that we can carefully calibrate those so that there isn't a big retaliation as well so there are a couple of ways to think about how you deter these in the future. One of them is determined by denial. That is to say. I build such great cyber defences that i say michael. You can come attack me to your best. I built such a great wall. Here you're not getting okay. That's one kind of deterrence. The second kind of deterrence is one. We've been talking about deterrence by punishment right. If you do this to me. Boy you're really gonna regret a third possibility is to develop some sort of international set of rules where we say that certain things are off limits. Maybe it's power grids in peacetime because you turn off the power people in hospitals and nursing homes are going to die. Maybe it's election systems. The problem with this approach is that even the united states government isn't really sure it wants to sign up because no one in the intelligence community having spent all the billions of dollars to develop sophisticated cyber capabilities. Wants to go up to the president united states and say i'm terribly sorry but we reached an agreement a few years ago that we'd never do this and so words big impediment to this problem as the russians and the chinese David if we assume that these attacks will keep coming for the next few years. I wonder if we can begin to think about how a president elect joe biden would handle them. Because if there's anybody who might have a strong rationale for taking a very hard line against russia you might think that it would be joe biden and i say that because we know from lots of reporting that the russians did not want joe biden to win. They favored donald trump. And so is it. Possible that are incoming president might take a much stronger approach than his predecessors when it comes to responding to things like this attack that just occurred. Well he's gonna try but it's gonna be really hard needle the threat. I mean what he's got going for him is. He's not the holden to putin in any way right. He's already said putin does want me to be president. Putin's coming after me. And if he does. I'm coming after him. And he's been pretty explicit about that but to say that you're coming after him and to actually do it is going to be difficult thing because the history of these past twenty five years since midnight maize is that we have so far been unwilling to escalate enough with a nuclear power for all kinds of good reasons and he understands this so the question for biden is. Is he going to find a way to thread. The needle is he going to go. Accelerate general nakasone strategy. Is he going to find a way to build those much better defenses and then finally i think he's going to have to address the fear question. Which is the end of the day. The state adversaries. Russia china the other big nation states that are using cyber have to fear that the price of making use of this cheap effective invisible weapon simply isn't worth it and we haven't found the right way yet to make them fear us.

Trumps day filled with strange and confusing statements

The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell

44:03 min | 2 years ago

Trumps day filled with strange and confusing statements

"Now, it's time for the last word with Lawrence, Donald good evening line rates. You'll and the question for everyone is what is William bar doing. And we know that he's not responding to the deadline and that he says he's working on reductions of the mullahs report. And in the next few weeks. It's going to come out. But but by what is he doing? I mean is he working to try to protect the president are his redaction designed to protect the president is the delay designed to protect the president. We have reason to wonder about that it it might not be the case at all. And the the in that letter that went from the democratic chairman to the attorney general within the last twenty four hours they had one line in there, which I think was supposed to be important for all of us to crack. Which was they said that now in his call with bar was led to believe by bars. Comments that these grand jury reductions that he's making are substantial reductions, meaning he's cutting a ton out of the report. Based on the fact that it's grand jury information that immediately calls the question as to whether or not that grand jury information is being properly withheld from congress or whether somebody should be asking a court to allow congress to see that stuff. William bar could do that himself as a Torney general conceivably Robert Muller could do that as special counsel conceivably, Jerry now, boom, the Democrats could make that request themselves to the court that seems like that's the next big thing to happen. And I just don't know what this is why I've added a question to my presidential candidate interviews will you as president release the full Robert Muller report because it could be that it'll take the inauguration of another president to see this. I believe that something will happen in fairly short. I don't have knowledge of this. I just believe the way this is going that we will get at least a big chunk of it. But the unredacted version of it will be the white whale for Democrats until they get it. And I think they'll be relentless on this. And they they have time. Between now and the presidential election to get it even going through an appeals process painters. And all of that that thank you rich clients. Well, there's more to say about what the attorney general is doing what he's doing with the mullahs report. And I found more to say about it in an extraordinary document from the Justice department that no one's really been talking about today except for one news outlet. One extremely unlikely news outlet to produce. What I think is a very very important story today that shows us what William bar as attorney general working for Donald Trump is capable of. And it is a very very bad story about what William bar is willing to at least allow to happen in the Justice department while he is running an approving running the department and approving what that department does going to save that for. For the end of this hour. It is the most unlikely place where we could find something that tells us just how far William bar is willing to go for President Trump. We don't know if this tells us what he's going to do with the mullahs report. But it is an extraordinary story about how the Justice department has threatened of all things the Oscars the full weight of the Justice department under William bar is now threatening the Oscars with legal action if they change any of their rules for eligibility. You're going to want to hear what this might mean for the mullahs report and just how far the Trump Justice department has now gone service exclusively to Donald Trump, not to the people of the United States, but to Donald Trump. And there's more than one way to cover what the president of the United States did and said publicly today, it's an extraordinary day. And it's a difficult day to find the right approach to what happened in the Trump presidency today. Our first approach to the Trump news today. Even a few hours ago was to do what we usually do which is deal with the policy and political implications of a series of comments, the president made today that no other president or politician would ever say or do like threatening to close our southern border something that the Republican leader of the Senate says would be catastrophic economically something that would shut down. I mean shut down the American automobile manufacturing industry, and yes, something that would mean the United States would run out of guacamole in three weeks, literally three weeks. That's the official calculation on what Mexico's avocados. Applying means to the United States, but things got stranger than usual with the president today. He said things for which there is no easy explanation. He said his father wasn't born in the United States. His father was born in New York usually with a Trump lie. You can easily figure out what he's trying to accomplish with the lie. But not today, the president struggles to pronounce a very simple word, and he repeatedly could not do it. What does that mean, we have grown accustomed to the vagaries and strangeness of Donald Trump's public behavior? But this was a day where the strangest strangeness dominated both the strangeness of the policy positions and the strangeness of the president's public behavior and public words and in his final comments public comments of the day. He said this tonight at a Republican fundraiser in Washington. If you had a normal president. I don't want to say that negatively I think I'm very normal. But if you had a normal, you know, what I mean another words if you had a stiff as president which most of them are I hate to say. How often do you hear a normal person say I think I'm very normal? Have you ever heard of president of the United States feel compelled to publicly announce I think I'm very normal. Does that mean he knows he's not normal? There are a bunch of important questions urging questions about the president today that political analysis cannot answer political expertise cannot answer some of these questions, and that's why along with our political analysts tonight. We're going to be joined by a psychiatrist in our leadoff discussion of what the president did. And said today, Donald Trump is a seventy two year old man whose father had Alzheimer's and died in New York ninety three years after he was born in New York and today, Donald Trump said this about his father, Fred Trump who's picture the president keeps right behind his desk in the Oval Office. My father is German right was German and born in a a very wonderful place in Germany. So I have a great feeling for Germany. A wonderful place in Germany, what place his father was born in New York, just like Donald Trump, Donald Trump's grandfather was born in Germany. What does it mean when you confuse where your father was born with where your grandfather was born? My father was born in Boston. My grandfather was born in Ireland that I have never once confused that. But then I'm not seventy two years old. I don't have Alzheimer's in my family history. And I'm not the president of the United States trying to convince NATO that I'm not just being mean when I asked NATO countries to spend more money on their military. That's what Donald Trump was actually talking about today when he said that his father was born in Germany. He repeatedly said that the United States spends much more on defense than we actually do. And that is the kind of Trump falsehood that we probably wouldn't even mention tonight, but in any other presidency that would actually be the hot news of the day. The president doesn't even know how much money we spend on defense that would be big news and any other presidency. Watching the president today you had a right to wonder whether the president simply likes to exaggerate how much we spend on defence or actually cannot learn the real number of what we spend on defence. You had a right to wonder today, if there's something wrong with the workings of the president's mind, especially if you watched him repeatedly struggle. To say, the word origin. What kept coming out was something that sounded like, orange juice. And I hope that this investigation now, which is finished stolley finish, no collusion obstruction. I hope they now go and take a look at the oranges the arches of the. Investigation. The beginnings of that investigation. You look at the origin of the investigation where it started. How it started who started it? Whether it's K or call me or a lot of them where does it go how high up in the White House? Did it go? You will all get Pulitzer prizes. Okay. You're gonna all get pellet surprises. You should have looked at it a long time ago. And that's the only thing that's disappointing to me about the Muller report. The Muller report, I wish covered the oranges. How it started the beginnings of the investigation. How it started? He said oranges twice. Then he successfully said the word origin, which apparently gave him the confidence to try to say it one more time. And when he tried to say it one more time he said oranges again. I don't know what that is. I have my own struggle with words, you see that here. But it's simply a struggle to suppress. My native Boston accent in favor of speaking American. It's not that. I try to say a very simple word, and I can only get out the first two letters before. I changed that simple word into a compl-. Lately, different word repeatedly. What is that? What was happening to the president of the United States today? The president recently decided to order his Justice department to switch sides in the legal case from defending the Affordable Care Act in court as the Justice department is supposed to do with all federal laws to opposing the forcible Care Act in court, which is an unprecedented position taken by the Trump Justice department. The president did that against the wishes of the top Republican in congress. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, it is a politically disastrous position for the president to take as Mitch McConnell knows than as every Republican congress knows. But the president did it anyway in any other politician, if any other politician did that we would be questioning his or her neurological health two-night, that's how politically crazy that is. But we've grown accustomed to that with Donald Trump, the president has been pretending that he has a healthcare plan ready to pass and be signed into law as soon as the supreme court strikes down ObamaCare. But no one believes that today Mitch mcco. Said he finally got the president to stop saying that. Rather than what he wants to be going to healthcare. Their healthcare debate standing rich not any longer. We had a good conversation yesterday afternoon and pointed out to him the Senate Republicans view on dealing with comprehensive health care reform with a democratic house of representatives. So I made it clear to we were not going to be doing that in the Senate. So we don't have a misunderstanding about that will not be doing a comprehensive in the Senate and minutes after Mitch McConnell said that Donald Trump said this. No, I wanted to delay myself. I wanna put it after the election because we don't have the house. So even though the healthcare is good, really good. It's much better than when the plan comes out, which will be showing you at the appropriate time. It's much better than ObamaCare. So when the plan comes out, you'll see it. It's much better than ObamaCare. It doesn't exist. But it's much better than ObamaCare. Not a word of the Trump healthcare plan exists anywhere. Not on a note paired pad nowhere, but it's much better than ObamaCare. What do you call it? There is a political discussion to be had about this. And there is a psychiatric discussion to be had about this. And that is why we are leading off our discussion tonight with Dr prudence Gorgas, Sean, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst and past president of the American psychoanalytic association. Also with us run claim of former senior aide to President Obama and former chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary committee knows the workings of the White House and the Senate and knows the kind of dynamics that go on between Mitch McConnell and President Trump in a situation. Like this an atom gentleman is with us. He's the former deputy chief of staff to former Senate majority leader, Harry Reid. He's knows the workings of Mitch McConnell's mind on these matters. Very well. He's joined us before on this subject. But dr. I want to start with you. This is one of those days as every day is. But this is this is the day where it just became overwhelming. Where in watching the president it became imperative that we once again check in on a psychiatric view of what it is. We're watching when we're watching Donald Trump in these situations. Well, I feel like you asked me here kind of on a house. Call tonight. It was very strange day. Even for Donald Trump. I think what he'll say tomorrow I predict is that he meant to say his grandfather was born in Germany. He was clearly struggling to find to kind of locate his thoughts and his memories, and he'll he'll get ill hill. Just the segue out of that by saying he meant his grandfather the word finding problem. I didn't hear him saying oranges to me. He had the first two syllables of the word, and he couldn't remember the end of it. That's what it sounded like to me. And then he substituted beginning and the start of and then he wanted to go back to it. So yeah is there. I can't do a neurologic exam. Just watching the the tape today if he were a normal leader to use his phrase, he would seek an evaluation if he were CEO of a big company found himself forgetting words or making mistakes like grandfather and father. Conflicting them he'd seek a neurologic neuropsychiatric evaluation willingly eagerly to see if he was having cognitive difficulties. But I don't think he'll do that. Dr. When you see him tonight, a standing up there in front of an audience after daylight today or any day saying things like I'm perfectly normal. I think I'm perfectly normal in your experience. And I'm not saying I don't mean Donald Trump, particularly since you have no experience with him. But in your clinical experience in dealing with people in the way, they talk about themselves. Does that kind of comment about oneself? Tell us anything about that person. Well, we have a concept called the unprovoked denial. So, you know, if you say, I am not a liar. And nobody asked you if you were you wonder why the person is bringing it up. So it comes under the heading of unprovoked denial, and it's kind of like, okay. Well, I didn't ask if you're. Normal. So why is it on your mind? He clearly sounded very very stressed and anxious today and anybody with is going to have more with the slightest bit of difficulty cognitively, just in general, if they're under a lot of stress it's gonna show itself if there's a tiny bit, mild, cognitive difficulty, you're going to see a lot more of it. In a stressful situation the unprovoked denial. I've just written it down and Ron clain. I think that's going to be a graphic that you will be seeing describing other segments. We will be doing on this show in the future the unprovoked denial your reaction to what Ron Clinton to what you saw the president doing today. We'll look I'm not a doctor. I can't diagnose what I can say is as someone who's watched this for two years and seeing a lot of craziness come out of the Oval Office today was like the Beethoven's fifth of craziness from Donald Trump. It was just an endless array of ridiculous things. Things you showed obviously at the top of the show Lawrence. But also the president announced that we could solve the border problems. We can just get rid of judges. He announced that he asked that. Basically, he set up a task force to deal with the problem that has task force. This gonna shut the border is gonna create he announced that he has a healthcare plan except that he doesn't accept it. He would have won except at Mitch McConnell last of not to accept that. He's going to have one after the election who's just really was in a ministration where every single day looks like this. This is really one of the most notable days of exceptional nuttiness coming from the White House, Adam journalists, and I think you, and I and Ron certainly we I look at all these things politically we look at them in terms of. Governing analysis and political analysis, but today was a day where I had to surrender the political analysis. That's why I wanted the doctor on, but but to stick with the political analysis, the president starts switch turns the Justice department around and says, I want you to attack the Affordable Care Act in court Mitch McConnell thinks that's a disastrous thing for the president to do. And that is something that if any just that alone. If any other White House was doing that everyone in Washington would be using the word crazy about that White House. Yeah. That's how you you won't hear me say this very often. But I agree with Mitch McConnell. It's an insane thing to do. You know, the president was having a decent run of positive news. And then by ordering the Justice department to do this. He put the new squarely in Democrats turf. I mean healthcare is the single most motivating issue to Democrats. It's an issue. We used very strongly to take back the house in two thousand eighteen and it's it's just inexplicable for the president to put it back in enemy territory like this. It just doesn't make any sense at all. Doctor. I wanted to ask you one more thing about the president. And this is something that's Republican Senator Lamar Alexander said about the president thinking, and he was intending to compliment him. He said even people who don't like him when they are. With him are impressed with how easily he works room. I think he'd likes people he lives in the moment. He's not thinking of the next day or even the next hour or the next person. He's that kind of personality doctor what kind of personality is that. Much. Sure, I totally agree with that. I throw the situation back to the political side. Because again, as I said earlier, he seems extremely stress none of us functions. Whatever our functional level is whatever best functional level is. None of us is is there all the time. So if you see somebody slipping from their usual level that indicates there under a lot of stress and tension, and I wonder if there's some political. Tension going on that makes him look particularly vulnerable and scattered today. Does he live in the moment? I think he's constantly strategizing to figure out how to. To make himself. Look good. And so I don't know if I'd agree with Senator Alexander. All right. We're going to have to leave it there. We have a commercial break coming up Dr. Prudence corker, Sean, Ron clain, Adam gentlemen. Thank you all for starting off our discussion tonight. And when we come back, it's meet the freshman night again here at the last word democratic member of congress Harley root of freshmen will join us. He's an MD member of the important house oversight committee that voted today to begin issuing subpoenas to the Trump administration and at the end of the hour tonight Torney general bar has revealed the way he is running the Justice department today in a way that he was hoping we would never find out. It's a letter from the Justice department that the attorney general doesn't want you to see and is refusing to make public tonight after we requested it today. That's at the end of this. Hi, it's Katy Tur want to keep up with MSNBC while you're on the go subscribe to the MSN be daily newsletter. You'll get the best of what you've missed or in this unprecedented. Era of news, text MSNBC, two six six eight six six to subscribe. Today. The house oversight committee voted along party lines to subpoena. Former White House personnel security director Carl Kline to testify before the oversight committee about security clearances issued to the president's daughter and son-in-law and others. That vote comes just one day after whistle blower Tricia Newbold accused the administration of serially abusing these security clearance process oversight committee, chairman Elijah Cummings has been requesting information about the security clearance process since January and cited the White House's refusal to comply with his requests as justification for today's vote on subpoenas. They have not produced a single piece of paper boy single requests witness to this committee. The White House needs to understand that they cannot stonewall and stole this committee for months. And then just offer us a general information about their policies. Not when such there's such serious allegations of a risk to national security today's committee meeting Carson Alexander Cossio Cortes commented on the Trump administration's loose policies with security clearances and loose practices involving national security communication. Folks are suggesting that we are conducting foreign relations with folks with security clearances via WhatsApp I mean every day that we go on without getting to the bottom of this matter is a day that we are putting hundreds if not potentially thousands of Americans at risk. I mean, really what is next putting nuclear codes and Instagram Deums. During a recession. Now, Representative Harley Rueda democratic freshman member of the oversight committee who voted to authorize those subpoenas today, he represents California's forty eighth district. And Carson what is the case? What is the case? You will explain to your constituents about why you are sending these subpoenas to the White House well, good governance to start with and our obligations under article one of the constitution. We have clear evidence here that through the process of issuing national security clearances that the president either directly or indirectly overrode twenty-five decisions not to offer clearances to certain individuals that puts our country at risk when we have classified information being made available to individuals that we have clear concerns about it's great that we had this whistle blower step up, and take exception to that. And and hopefully help save some important aspects of our democracy and cars would. What you here on a night where the president did talk about healthcare today, and a sort of some a something of a change in tactic saying that well, they won't even attent to legislate anything in healthcare until you and your fellow Democrats are defeated in the house representatives and the Republicans win back the house the healthcare issue is according to the exit polls, the number one issue that elected so many new freshmen Democrats to the house of representatives. What's your reaction to the president's attempt now to destroy the Affordable Care Act in court and promise at some point in the future? The Republicans have always failed to do this will once again attempt to replace the Affordable Care Act. Yeah. Let's think about this. You know for six years under Obama's administration tried to repeal the and for the last two years the first two years of Trump's term when they controlled the house. They control the Senate. They control the White House. They failed repeatedly to come up with a plan that even there. Own party would support to suggest now to take shots at the ACA through a court case and put millions of Americans including over three hundred thousand citizens in my district without healthcare coverage because of pre existing conditions shows how far removed this president and the administration is with mainstream America's desire to have quality, affordable, healthcare and cars to your constituents understand at this point that what the president's going after is to knock out the entire Affordable Care Act in court. And that would mean a twenty three year olds who are on their parents insurance policies that would no longer be available to them that it's not just pre existing conditions. It's the entirety of absolutely. It's the entire ACA. So it would take us back even the insurance companies. Don't want to see this happened. No one wants to see this habit. The Republican faithful don't wanna see this habit because they know the impact to Americans in every single district across the United States and how it would. End the economic system is it's difficult to to fully calculate it. So why the president has decided to fall on the sword again to take on ACA is anybody's best. Guess maybe it's just because it's associated with Obama, and he feels that need to attack it, but we'd have to ask him as to why his reasons are for continuing to go after a program that most Americans want to see continued freshman democratic congressman Harley Rueda, thank you very much for joining us. And that really appreciate thanks Lawrence. And when we come back and extraordinary report today, a Chinese citizen was arrested after gaining access to mar Largo this weekend where she was found to be carrying malicious software. She was reportedly trying to attend an event that was hosted that she said was hosted by sid Cindy Yang at mar Largo. That's the former owner owner of a massage spa where Robert Kraft is accused of participating in things. He shouldn't have participated in Robert Kraft friend of. The President Trump all of that is next. What happens if you show up at the president's weekend, Florida home using to Chinese passports as identification carrying four cell phones. One laptop one external hard drive in one. Thumb drive with militia software on it. The answer is you get in. And then after a while on second thought the secret service arrests you the criminal complaint against the thirty two year old Chinese woman who was arrested on Saturday at mar Largo says due to a potential language barrier issue, mar Largo believed her to be a relative of member Zhang and allowed her access to the property. The Miami Herald was the first report how the Chinese national gained access to more Largo one of the reporters for the Miami Herald who broke this story. Caitlyn Ostrov will join us next along with national security expert, Jeremy bash. We're lucky to be joined by one of the reporters on the breaking news story of the night where joined by Miami Herald reporter Caitlyn Ostrov joining us from the Miami Herald newsroom, she broke the story on the arrest at mar Largo on Saturday. Also joining the Scott Shen, Jeremy bash former chief of staff at the CIA and the defense department. He's an MSNBC national security analyst and can give us an assessment of the risks snatched security risks of the operations of more Largo Caitlyn Ostrov. This arrest is truly extrordinary seems to bring together every strange character recently in the headlines in southern Florida. Tell us what happened on Saturday. Yeah. So the woman missing showed up for an event at mar-a-lago that was a United Nations friendship event. No such event was actually going on. But mar-a-lago staff that she was that she was with someone who was a member of the club. And so they let her in after realizing that she wasn't in fact with someone or a member of the club, the secret service took her for questioning at which point she became aggressive, and she said that she had been invited by a man named Charles. We had done reporting last week that showed that there was a man named Charles Lee who was with a similar association called the United Nations. Chinese friendship association that took down its website. Once we started asking questions that promoted events to mar-a-lago from Cindy Yang. So he would bundle her events in moated two Chinese nationals as a way to get access. Tamar Lago and to get FaceTime with the president. And when you look at the court documents, and what the woman was saying. She was there today, which was talk about economic relations between the US and China that goes hand in hand with some of the events that were being promoted on miss Yang's website, and on Charles's website about you know, why one might be at mar law go on that day. The jury bash there's a picture of of course, she famously has already emerged as someone who was in effect selling access to the president and his family at mar Largo a lot of picture, sell fees and other pictures like that she has herself with the president. She also happens to be the owner operator of one of Robert Kraft's favorite places to go and southern Florida for a massage something that's now put him in the spot of being a criminal defendant. And Jeremy with your experience of this. This seems to be. A story that shows clearly what the risks are in national security terms, in the way, mar Largo is operated. Yeah. Yeah. I think this is a scandal in three dimensions. I the president wants to try to close the land border with Mexico. He cannot even close mar-a-lago two Chinese nationals walking around with malicious code second. We know that the People's Republic of China has been engaged in human espionage operations in which they wanna implant malicious code basically software that could hack or penetrate, the networks or devices of government officials in the United States, what better place to do it then mar-a-lago where you can apparently roam around freely and potentially implant that malicious code either by inserting the fund drive in a device, or maybe even putting it out over the WI fi or local area network there. But third I think it shows you something deeper about mar-a-lago the president really should have that place closed down when he's there yet. He keeps it open why? Because he makes money from people buying memberships, which is really a way to buy access to him and have. The bragging rights have been close to the president. So the president is in essence sacrificing his own security and national security, so it can make a buck. Caitlyn? Your reporting says the arrest occurred at twelve thirty pm on Saturday afternoon. Why did we just find out about this after noon? I mean, so we weren't the ones who broke the news of the initial court filings and local TV station did, but it also takes a day or two for those documents usually be filed within the court system. So if she appeared for her first quarter appearance on Monday, it's Tuesday. So that's probably going to beat the delay for ducks to be successful. And Jeremy in your experience with any previous White House arrest like that in proximity to the president. That's something. We would have heard about within what an hour or two. Yeah. It's a big deal. I think if there was a fence jumper. We would have heard about it in this is much more serious than offense jump or someone who crashes through the front doors of the White House. This is a Chinese national who shouldn't have been there who was there really because they claim they were coming there because an event was being promoted by massage parlor owner alleged sex trafficker who selling access to the president and she has not one but four cell phones on her and malicious code on a thumb drive. All alarm bells should have been ringing. We should have been notified about this. As soon as it happened. But I do give credit to the secret service Lawrence. Because tonight there statement may clear that it's the president's decision who goes into mar-a-lago, not there's Jeremy bash. Thank you for your invaluable perspective on this and Caitlyn Australia. Thank you very much for your important reporting. And for taking the time to join us tonight. We really appreciate. And when we come back attorney Jagger William Barr showed us something today about just how low he is apparently willing to go for Donald Trump. That's coming up next. What is it turning general William bar willing to do for President Trump? That is the question that Democrats in congress and people throughout the country are asking themselves tonight since attorney general William bar has refused to meet the house representatives deadline for turning over the full Mullah report. The attorney general has just ignored that deadline entering general says that he will give congress redacted Mullah report in a few weeks will the attorney general's reductions protect the president is the attorney general delaying the release of even the redacted Muller report to help protect the president. Did the attorney general summarize the report that we now know is hundreds of pages long in a way that was designed to protect the president. We don't know. But we did get a very important demonstration today of what William bar is willing to do for Donald Trump, and it is. Outrageous, William bar seems to have taken orders from the president to use the Justice department or allow the Justice department to be used in Donald Trump's feud with Hollywood Donald Trump is the only president in history small minded enough to be in a constant public feud with Hollywood he hates the Oscars because someone always makes a negative comment about the president either on the red carpet or during the ceremony. And so Donald Trump's Justice department has now decided to threaten the Oscars. That's right. You heard correctly. William bar has become the first attorney general in history who has decided to allow the full weight of the Justice department to be used to officially threaten the Oscars and to do it in writing and like the Oscars this program has commercial breaks. And so after this final commercial break. We will show you just how low William bar has already sunk as Donald Trump's attorney general. And when you hear this, you might just suspect that there is nothing William bar won't do for Donald Trump, which makes this about much more than the Donald Trump and William bar threat to the Oscars. It's about much more than that. And it's next. Thanks to exclusive reporting by Ted Johnson variety. We learned today. The Justice department has warned the academy of Motion Picture Arts and sciences sciences than its potential rule. Changes. Limiting the eligibility of Netflix and other streaming services for the Oscars. Could raise antitrust concerns and violate competition law variety reports that two weeks ago the Justice department sent a threatening letter to Don Hudson. The CEO of the academy saying, dear MS Hudson. The antitrust division of the US department of Justice has learned through news reporting that the academy of Motion Picture Arts and sciences may consider proposed rules changes limiting eligibility for the Academy Awards. It was signed by the head of the Justice Department's anti-trust division making Delray ham. The Justice department is so ashamed of this letter that it has not released it publicly variety had to obtain a copy of it and has not been able to release a full. Copy of it making del regime has disgraced himself before he is the Trump appointee who brought the antitrust case against AT and T acquisition of Time Warner because the president wanted him to unlike previous presidents, Don Trump decided to publicly announced his opposition to that merger saying quote, it was not good for the country presumably because CNN was part of Time Warner and according to the president an enemy of the people. The president also said he was quote, not going to get involved. But Jane Mayer reports in the New Yorker Trump order Gary Cohn, then the director of the National Economic Council to pressure the Justice department to intervene, according to a well informed source. Trump called cone into the Oval Office along with John Kelly who had just become the chief of staff and said in exasperation to Kelly. I've been telling cone to get this lawsuit filed and nothing's happened. I've mentioned it fifty times. And nothing's happened. I wanna make sure it's filed I want that deal blocked. According to the source as cone walked out of the meeting. Told Kelly don't effing dare call the Justice department. We are not going to do business that way, but Gary Cohn who has left the Trump White House couldn't stop the Trump Justice department from trying to block the merger the way Donald Trump wanted them to, but the trial judge in the case ruled against the Trump attempt to block the merger. And now the head of the antitrust division in the Trump Justice department has so much of nothing to do that. He's sitting around the office reading show business publications about possible. Minor changes to the Academy Award rules. There are several rules that govern eligibility for an Academy Award. But there's only one sentence of those rules that interests the Trump Justice department. It says that motion pictures that are released online by services, such as Netflix are eligible for Oscars as long as they are released on or after the first day that they are exhibited in a good old. Fashioned movie theater in Los Angeles. The academy is considering changing that rule to require that the motion picture run exclusively in a movie theater before it is released online. You don't have to go to law school to know that there is absolutely no antitrust issue involved in that Oscar rule or any other Oskar rule all of which limit. What movies are eligible for us cars, for example? There's an Oscar rule that says the minimum for a non mono configuration of the audio Shelby. Three channels as left center. Right. A left right configuration is not acceptable in a theatrical environment. Does that restrict anyone's economic rights? Yes. It does those people cannot who don't have the right audio cannot get their movies made eligible for an Oscar which is no concern to the government of the United States or the Justice department. But Donald Trump has. Poisoned the Justice department. He has appointed a head of the antitrust division who will shame himself repeatedly by putting his name on anything that Donald Trump wants to put his name on including signing. A threatening letter about the rules for the Oscars. We already knew that the head of the antitrust division is a Trump cultist who supported Donald Trump's election in two thousand sixteen and wrote him up Ed piece, urging anti-trump Republicans to forget their principles and be practical like him making del haram said in the op-ed piece Republicans should vote for Donald Trump because a presidential election is all about supreme court justices and making del regime is no doubt. Now waiting for his appointment to the supreme court of the United States after faithful service to Donald Trump. There is no surprise that. He put his name on that letter filled with legal absurdities, but attorney general William Barr had to approve the sending of that letter two weeks ago and William bar approved. It. And that right. There is big news one month into his service to Don Trump attorney general William bar said yeah, sure send a threatening letter from the Justice department to the Oscars about their rules of eligibility. Nothing else is ever going to come of this. There will be absolutely no follow up to that. Phony letter the academy can change their rules anyway, they want and they will never hear from the Justice department legally, again, the head of the antitrust division knows that and he knows that his letter is an empty and ridiculous threat. Attorney general William bar knows that is this a case of William bar, giving Donald Trump a crazy little thing that Donald Trump wants while William bar resists. Donald Trump's much worst demands. Or does this Justice department letter threatening the Oscars show us that there is absolutely nothing? William bar won't do for Donald Trump. There is no order to small or. Or to petty? No order from Donald Trump that William Barr thinks is beneath him. Is that what this means Donald Trump has always said he wanted ROY Cohn as his attorney general, and he couldn't have ROY Cohn because ROY Cohn died in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and before he died ROY Cohn was convicted of crimes, but he was Donald Trump's first lawyer and Donald Trump loved him because ROY Cohn would do anything for Donald Trump anything. Donald Trump finally have his ROY Cohn again as his attorney general is that what this Justice department letter threatening the Oscars tells us about the attorney general of the United States. We don't know yet. But it doesn't tell us anything. Good or anything, decent or anything. Honorable or anything professional. About the attorney general of the United States. Hi, it's Stephanie rule.

Child Care Provider Talks Coronavirus Challenges; Farmers Forced To Dump Milk

"From NPR and WBZ YOU are. I'm Jeremy Hobson. Im Tanya Moseley. It's here now and today. President trump is expected to face questions about how he'll temporarily suspend immigration into the US by executive order and in Congress Senate Majority Leader Chuck. Schumer is predicting that the Senate will soon pass additional money for Small Business Corona virus relief. Here he is on. Cnn staff was up all night writing. You're still a few more dies to dot and t's to cross but we have a deal. Let's bring an NPR White House correspondent Tamra Keith. And Tam what do we know about? What's in this deal? And what isn't in this deal? The sticking point had been extra money for states which Democrats wanted rate so this is sort of a booster shot if you will to follow up on the cares act that passed last month includes additional money for the paycheck protection program. That's the program to give money to small businesses loans. That are basically forgivable a very popular program that ran out of money very quickly so the idea is to give it more money so that more small businesses can actually get the money There's also some money in there for healthcare providers and additional funds for testing as you say what's not in there is funding for states states have said that there are major budget shortfalls as a result of the economic consequences and the extra spending related to the corona virus. They had asked for five hundred billion dollars in funding. That's not in their Democrats wanted that and ultimately the administration and Republicans said no not this time. President trump has tweeted. He's urging passage of this new bill. And he saying that as soon as he signs it there will be discussions. That will begin on the next phase that would include money for state and local governments For lost revenues from Kovic Nineteen. He also wants infrastructure investments for bridge tunnels broadband and also money for restaurants sports. And he wants a payroll tax. Cut some of that stuff is a wishlist of his certainly. But there's already bipartisan effort. And Push to get money for states and local. And what can you tell us about the president's plans for an executive order temporarily suspending immigration? We should note of course that a lot of immigration has already been suspended because of the corona virus. But he tweeted last night. He wants to protect American jobs and prevent the spread of infection. What are the concerns about going? As far as he wants to go now but what I can tell you is that that tweet came at ten o'clock last night and we don't have much more information now than we did. When that tweet came out the administration has not released language or details or been particularly forthcoming about who would be affected which classes of immigrants or or anything like that. You know there are questions about guest workers but the thought is that those wouldn't be affected but we don't know but as you say an economic advisor to the White House Kevin Hassett was asked. Well what what would the economic impact of this be and he said quote. There's so little travel right. Now that at margin the policy changed. It was announced last. Night isn't going to be economically significant in the short run. Because there's no one going anywhere And and the National Security Adviser said that this is this is purely temporary and now we wait and see what the executive order actually says. The trump campaign is already sending messages to the president's supporters. Hyping this up. One concern that we've heard about. Is that migrant workers who come in for the agriculture sector won't be able to come in so we'll continue to watch that and what president trump does. Tam Keith. Npr White House correspondent. Thank you. You're welcome. Let's turn now to Iowa where employees at several meat. Packing plants are infected with the corona virus. Today the Tyson foods pork plant in Columbus junction is reopening for limited operations after being closed for two weeks and in Waterloo the Tyson. Fresh meats plant remains open despite calls for it to close after some workers. They are turned up sick. More than two hundred and fifty people in the county surrounding Waterloo have also tested positive for the corona virus. At least two people in the county have died. Amy Mayor is agricultural reporter for Iowa public radio and amy. Can you describe the conditions of these plants and perhaps how it may be contributing to becoming hotspot sure I have toured one of the plant's not one of the ones that you just mentioned but another pork processing plant here in Iowa? These are very carefully laid out an orchestrated lines. There are lots of workers are most of these plants operate at least two shifts a day Some of them at times operate around the clock people are pretty close together. Often describe SORTA shoulder the animals come in. They are slaughtered their drained. And they're moved through these different stations. Where the workers have very specific jobs. So that the last stages of the plant are pieces of meat being wrapped and packaged and boxed up and shipped out the door to restaurants or stores or whatever their final destinations are. Yeah as I mentioned one plant in. Columbus junction is reopening today. Have they said it? All why they're reopening and is it possible for them to do that safely? When they closed the agreement was they would close for two weeks. That would be time to do thorough. Disinfecting it would mean two weeks from exposure for anyone who may have been ASEM dramatic to potentially demonstrate that they have stayed healthy. It was a time line that I believe the company and the state government agreed to at the time of the shutdown. What they're doing as far as trying to keep employees healthy even before the shutdown and partly what contributed to it is that they were monitoring temperatures of everybody going into the plant. We've also been hearing about different companies trying to put some separation in on those tight. Working Conditions Plexiglass dividers providing face shields for workers also staggering the Times that people go into break rooms or locker rooms and trying to reduce the people passing each other and of course routine disinfecting all services including even things like vending machine buttons. Okay yeah I I mentioned The Waterloo plant as well. What has been the argument for keeping that plant open? The argument for keeping any of the plants open it just has fallen on Waterloo right now because of the timing of the outbreaks in different plans. Is that when you have The processors slowed or closed. You have a backup at the farm gate and so you also have the potential for a slowdown in the meat getting out to retail establishments and consumers but these short closures probably won't have a noticeable impact at the retail case in your supermarket. It's true that some people are seeing in certain grocery stores. There isn't as much meat but that probably has more to do with how much people are buying at one time and the time it takes for the stores to restock we also in this country have hundreds of millions of pounds of meat in cold storage. So it's not so much that we could not have made available as we might not be able to get specific codes or the exact type of meat were most accustomed to. That's amy mayor. She's an agricultural reporter at Iowa. Public Radio Thank you. So Much. Amy For this update. Thanks for having me well. Let's go now to a world famous speech that remains closed to the public. Here's NPR's Philip Reeve's and Rio de Janeiro. Let's turn back the clock five weeks. It's Sunday at noon on Copper Cabana Beach. Everyone here knows. The Corona virus is spreading in Brazil. This is the final day of Sun worship before hibernation begins. The beach is a giant arc of golden sand two and a half miles long. Many thousands of people are here stretched out under brightly colored. Son Chase kids prince in the Atlantic Surf the speech sucker and in the cafes minstrels. This place is so much more than a beach. It's a giant escape valve replaced to get away from the pressures of life in this tough tropical town. It's also a market in constant motion. There are thousands of vendors here charging around under a punishing son selling everything from grilled cheese and shrimp on steaks to string bikinis. Susannah Potala has a stall selling coconuts. And caipirinhas Brazil's powerful cocktail made from sugarcane. The fact that the beach is about to close worries. Her a lot illness are by Roma. Say I have no other works in this? She says if I don't work I don't know what I'll do. I have rent to pay in the last few days. I've been thinking a lot about Susanna and copper and wondering why I go there so rarely this one event. I try not to Miss Copacabana. It's New Year's Eve party when people dress white toss flowers in the sea and jump up and down seven times in the surf making wishes for Good Luck. How distant those celebration seem? Now that we're staying inside or at least was supposed to be recently. People have started returning to Rio streets in defiance of the state governor. But Egged on by Brazil's president giant. Both Nado who's against brought socialize nation the other day during my morning exercise. I cycled a COUPLA Cabana because I suspected the beach might be back in business. I was wrong. This whole age is now closed. It's empty I can see two cops in the far distance patrolling the sand but apart from that pigeons seagulls fluttering flags Susannah Patel's coconut type arena. Stole has gone. I call her to find out. How she's coping Choson illegitimate very worried. She says stepdaughters tested. Positive SUZANNAH's holed up in a tiny apartment with her husband unpaid bills piling up and she really misses the beach life. I hope for her sake and many others. This virus is swiftly defeated so that COP Cabana reopened. Soon I'll go there more often after this and I'll certainly be back on New Year's Eve jumping up and down in the surf making a wish that this never happens again for the breeze.

Thirty first twenty twenty and as the weeks of stay at home orders mount the daycare industry. According to one expert is close to the brink of collapse earlier this month senators Elizabeth. Warren and Tina Smith introduced a fifty billion dollar bailout of the industry but Helen Blank. The former director of childcare and early learning at the National Women's law center says that's still doesn't account for the growing educational divide between the rich and the poor. Helen Blank joins us now. Welcome to here now. Thank you happy to be here today with you. You know. I've been thinking a lot lately. About what some are calling this cova slide kind of like that summer. Slide where kids lose some of the academic achievement gains from the previous year. You say this is definitely something that we are going to see after all of this. I think it's clear in. Its especially clear. For Low income children and we always had a deep divide and our system is characterized by huge inequities but the virus has exacerbated. This divide revealed how deep it is. Because we're going to have a slide from all chip trend because school is not is is not being approached the way it always has been but we have so many children who have basic lack of access to the Internet when we're doing remote learning who and this is because of resources or geography they don't have the devices and their families at first. I thought you know their families are just too busy to support children's learning and you know then. I realized that we have families who are simply not. They're essential workers who go to work. Maybe leaving twelve year olds with younger. Children are leaving school aged children home alone so we hear higher income families talk about the fact that they can't do the math right. It's so hard to help their children but we have families who just aren't there and you divide that we have is just going to get bigger and bigger in terms of of of Children losing learning. You know we're not hearing a lot about what this means for. Even younger children as you mentioned schools often provide before and after school care but this is a huge strain for families with children not yet in school but but daycare essentially you know our our childcare system is actually on the verge of collapse. We've always had a very patchwork system that is not supported with enough public funds. Most of it is private funding unlike schools and with so many families working from home and shouldering caregiving responsibilities and frontline workers struggling to find an afford childcare. This crisis is really a wakeup call. Because the childcare workforce is a critical family support really an engine of our economy and even before this we had very few families eligible for help in paying for childcare. We had a workforce that was disproportionately women of Color and immigrant families. They were paid extraordinarily low wages. They struggle to meet the needs of their own families. So we have two issues. What do you think Is the possible future for childcare workers in this country meaning what will it take to make these childcare facility safe? You know we're talking about social distancing being the norm well into possibly twenty twenty two. I think we are going to have to pay enormous attention to childcare. It's always been a side issue. Somehow you know parents make do And Child Care. Providers at have held have held it up but given the stress. It's under now. We're GONNA have to look at how we infuse a significant amount new resources into the system. So we can have smaller class sizes enough teachers for for fewer fewer numbers of children. We're going to also have to support the child care workers and the childcare system. So if parents aren't there the childcare provoked programs get paid regardless so they can stay open when we see. This anticipated education gap happen. I just know we're going to hear what parents and teachers could have done differently. the educational disparity solutions are often so focused on the individual and not collective or the system. What are some solutions? You'd like to see implemented during this time. There's no way around it. We needed government in an intervention. Before we saw the virus there have been comprehensive bills introduced one by Senator Patty Murray of Washington State when by Senator Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts that would get our our system on the right track. And we have to go back and look at those because this isn't just fifty billion that advocates estimate that we need to open up the system now and take care of the crisis. This this really calls poor cre- creating the kind of government help. We need to have a childcare system. That's publicly funded like our school system because we already know parents are paying more than they can afford for childcare. And that's still means that the providers are not paying what they need and it doesn't and it hasn't worked without a strong role for government and we have to think about how we care for children of low wage low income families because those children are the most stress from what's going on now so we have to look at what kind of economic and healthcare system. We have all these children and their families. Don't fall through the cracks and we have to have a high quality childcare pre K. System that meets the needs of children and their families that allows parents to work knowing their children are in safe stable high-quality places that's Helen Blank former director for leadership and public policy the National Women's law center. Thank you so much. Thank you tenure. So what does this all mean for service providers who are still operating? Cynthia Davis joins us. Now she's the president of the DC Family Childcare Association and owner of the King and Queen's Childcare Center in Washington. Dc welcome to here. And now thank you. I'm glad to be here. Cynthia King and Queen's Childcare Center is a home based Care Center and you typically have about five children in your care right now. You're down to to tell us about these families and and how you're managing safety measures Basically what we're doing is just open for essential workers and and the families that I'm serving now are essential workers nurses work in the healthcare industry. So we're basically doing is keeping our six distance our social distance some of the children because they are really young. They don't like to keep the face mask on but as they come in. We're taking temperatures as they enter the program and they enter the program we tell parents. There is no really no such thing at this point of a common cold. So the children cannot have sneezing runny. Noses you know certain things like that like a continuous cough a draft horse so we look for the signs and symptoms with the children and also in. We'll let the parents know that they can't bring their children if they are presenting any of those signs. Yeah so you're implementing these safety measures supporting essential workers but this is also a financial strain for you. We spoke with Helen Blank. She's she's worried about the future of the system. How are you preparing? And Are you worried? Oh yes I'm really worried. Because some of the parents have decided that they were taking their children out and because I do children that are part of the subsidy program and Private Children. And when you're losing so many of your private pay is really like starting to stress you out because you're going into your savings. We applied for many grants you know. Some of them have not yielded yet and the paycheck protection program already exhausted all this funds. So it's like. Where do we really turn if this continues to June? I'm going to have to start not paying my mortgage trying to make other rate was four bills and things like that. It's really starting to get straight and a lot of private people Providers home based providers who are actually taking in private pay only a really and the majority of our constituents and members are really over fifty years old so this is not a profession that we're really young and a lot of them are sixty plus. O on social security this supplemental intercom. They don't have a lot of children. We really get into a financial bind is is keep getting bad. Yeah you're hoping for relief before June because after June. You're not sure what's going to happen absolutely if I don't do something like sooner because remember. I'm still losing parents as the months. Go on so even though I'm having two children now. One of the parents decided that she just had a new infant that she is going to rich withdraw the child because of the in and out of that one child and then she don't want to create a situation where she's jeopardizing her newborn. And I totally understand that. Yes you have a masters in education and you and other providers as part of the work you do have sent resources to parents bringing this to the focus of those most impacted the children. What's at stake for them and their education? If many of these child care centers won't be able to bounce back. Everyone is talking about social distance. But they're not talking about the peer to Peer Interactions. That children have every day is really going to affect them because parents are going to be the primary teachers for several months and no parents. I have a hard time really liked adapting their own lives and now remember. Children have friends. They used to coming to school with their friends. They see their parents every day. They love their parents but they want to get out and play. They want to interact with other children. This is really we know. That bonding is a major goal for children and a good thing for them to do throughout the year so that they can be social people later in life but if we're not creating those interactions with children and be doing social distance this can have adverse effect for long term. That's Cynthia Davis. The president of the DC Family Childcare Association and owner of the King Queens Childcare Center a homebase provider in Washington DC. Said the. Thank you so much for your work and My best to you. Thank you so much for having me. President trump and British prime minister. Boris Johnson spoke on the phone. Today and Johnson's office says the two leaders agreed there needs to be a coordinated international response to the corona virus pandemic joining us now from the UK's NPR's Frank Langfitt Frank There's been some criticism of Prime Minister Johnson for his response to cove in nineteen as we know he had a serious case himself ended up in the ICU Do you think this phone call is supposed to show? He's back on the job I think it's trying to give the impression at least Jeremy that he's engaged in a right now. He's outed his. The prime ministers stayed in checkers just outside of London. He's not doing any government business. We haven't seen him on video since after he just got out of the hospital. That was I WanNa say that was more than a week ago and as you as you said Johnson was sick he he could have died he said and all long there's been the sense the republic recovery is. GonNa take a lot of time and I think what he's trying to show is that he is some degree engaged and hopefully will be coming back relatively soon and is he facing new criticism now for how he's handled fight the pandemic. I think particularly over this weekend we saw in the Sunday Times of London Acusations that he missed five emergency meetings on the corona virus And was on vacation as the crow virus spreading here. Of course I think everybody knows. The government was seen as pretty slow to react here. The government has pushed back saying he wasn't expected at these meetings. He's also been criticized particularly the health department here for the lack of P. p. e. There just hasn't been enough particularly. They're missing gallons. They need a lot of gallons. Apparently they're four hundred thousand that they're trying to source out of Turkey. Now that they thought would be your over the weekend they had to send an RAF A Royal Air Force cargo plane to Istanbul to try to pick it up so yes a lot of criticism still ongoing for the government here and there are new numbers looking at the toll that corona viruses taking in Britain. What what is today's report on? The course it keeps going up. It's it's over. Seventeen thousand three hundred and the numbers are thought to be considerably higher. Because this isn't counting. Deaths in private homes or nursing homes nursing homes are saying they think thousands more people have died is serious some good news year there signs that the deaths deaths may have peaked earlier this month and the the healthcare system is holding up a real fear that what happened in northern. Italy would happen here. That's not the case. They still have three thousand. Icu BEDS patients are in decline right now. So that's a very good sign for the government and for the people here. Is there the same pressure in the UK as there is in some parts of the United States right now to reopen the economy quickly? I'm thinking of places like Georgia and South Carolina which are already unveiling their plans. What about in the UK? No the I'd say there's a real difference. I think people here. Jeremy were a little slow to respond but they seem to be a lot. More respectful about it One of the things that these things that we're saying we're just talking to a doctor today in London. And she said on her ward she says. Social distancing is working She's not getting new community cases. It tends to be more family members of people who've already been sick And people are mostly following the rules but there is tension in the cabinet. Uh certainly the economic side of the cabinet is very concerned because Britain's economy is expected to shrink by thirty five percent. This spring unemployment should go over two million. So there's pressure to reopen on the other hand you have people in the health decide part of this who are very careful. They don't want to open up to quincy rebound Npr's Frank Langfitt. Thank you Frank. Very Jeremy and now more than ever so many of us rely on the. Us Postal Service to deliver not only are male but essential packages like food and medicine and yet the organization is facing some serious financial troubles anticipating a loss of two billion dollars a month during this pandemic a bailout does not seem likely at the moment. Either president trump recently refused to sign the cares act if it funded the postal service for more. We're joined by Philip. Rubio professor of history at North Carolina. A and t university and Philip is also a former postal worker. Welcome thank you for having me. The Postal Service feels very much like an essential service it. It employs more than six hundred thousand people and thinking about how we got to this present moment which feels like a financial ruin really you say this starts with an uprising from workers Back in nineteen seventy absolutely it dates back to the United States post office which is when that nationwide illegal wildcat strike took place because also workers had just had it. They're tired of seeing such puny raises. That were not giving them a living wage. Many of them were living on welfare with food stamps while they're working for the post office and there is a battle between President Nixon who wanted his postal corporation and Postal Unions wanted to have full collective bargaining rights within a government agency. What we wound up with was a compromise essentially the postal reorganization act of Nineteen. Seventy led to the establishment of this hybrid. This hybrid that we have today call the US Postal Service. So it's part government agency and Park Corporation because postal workers of the only government employees who enjoy full collective bargaining rights on the other hand. Congress also directed the postal service to become self supporting have not received any federal funds in fact since one thousand nine hundred eighty two. You know. That's that's really interesting an astounding for many people who who don't know the history that the postal service has not received federal funding since one thousand nine hundred eighty two. That's a really long time It really seems like the Postal Service has managed to stay afloat for the last few years but the last ten years his faced really routine financial problems really starting back in two thousand six. What happened in two thousand six right well? So two thousand six. Essentially the George W Bush administration balanced their budget on the backs of the US Postal Service which had overpaid by some tens of billions of dollars into the pension funds and rather than pay the postal service back. What they did was Right into law. Which new law called the Postal Accountability and enhancement act? They had forced postal service to have to pony up. Five point five billion dollars a year for ten years paying it forward for retiree health benefits. Seventy five years in other words retirees. Who hadn't even been born yet much less taking the postal exam so what happens starting well two years later we had the great recession and the Postal Service has never required a bailout but in in two thousand nine is really when we can take the postal financial crisis when they started to lead red ink because they did not receive a bailout in two thousand nine. Yes what. Congress did was refused to repeal that law so the postal service began having to do panic austerity measures. That didn't help that much. Now we see every boot of all of what you're talking about. But why is there this contentious relationship for a service that seems to be such an essential service for just about everyone in the country? That is a good question. It's got a lot of people scratching their heads and would I would argue. Where I have argued is that there has been a long standing conservative agenda that is regarded the postal service. And even before that the post office as a dinosaur from the past or socialistic or something that should be privatized with its most lucrative services sold off to private carriers like ups or Fedex and what happened with the postal financial crisis. Two thousand nine is provided that kind of can I guess you could say self fulfilling prophecy in your opinion? What's at stake especially in an election year? If we can't count on the postal service system and the postal workers. The president has been very vocal about being opposed to voting by mail. For instance. Can you talk a little bit about that? What's at stake is We enter into continued pushes for federal funding for at the. Us Postal Service. I think the trump administration is playing a costly game of chicken with the post office. I really don't think they want to run it into the ground in an election year after all even even though trump doesn't see the value of voting by mail which I think it would help protect our democracy. It could be secure Proven but besides that deliver the stimulus checks who's going to deliver the millions of prescriptions. That every day go out a letter is the cards the parcels anything that you can put posted John so we can count on the post office but what we have to be afraid of his progress not doing their job and president trump apparently willing to take that chance. So what happens next? We don't know that's Philip. Rubio professor of history at North Carolina State University and author of undelivered from the great postal strike of nineteen seventy two the manufactured crisis of the. Us Postal Service. Philip thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me. The dairy industry is also having its share of challenges right now. It's hard to find milk in some stores and at the same time. Some farmers around the country have had to dump their milk. David summer stain of North country. Public Radio explains earlier this month. Lyle would of Clinton New York got the notice from his milk. Dairy farmers of America dump three loads of milk a week which meant Monday afternoon. We're dumping Wednesday afternoon dumping Friday afternoon. We're dumping about nine thousand gallons of perfectly good milk from his twelve hundred cows down the drain to watch good. The drain is just very heartening. I would say the word. It just doesn't make you feel real good. Across the nation. Dairy farmers have been dumping milk for a couple of weeks now. Because there's an oversupply and yet get this. There's this apparent total contradiction. I am seeing store shelves. Empty Day after day after day of dairy products. And Yeah we've got dairy farms being told to dump their J. Madison is the Agricultural Coordinator for Jefferson County Northern New York state. He says it all started with the initial run on food. At the beginning of the corona virus pandemic people went to the stores. They bought melted butter. They bought everything but milk. Of course is very perishable. The whole supply chain is built on delivering just enough milk to sell right away. All of a sudden the system that operated on basically on demand you know the the milk was supplied just before it was needed. And it's it's just it's grew the whole system op. Most dairy farms are far from where the big demand is big cities and some milk plants closed or slow down to prevent cove in nineteen from getting inside. So that's all slowing the system down but it was when the other shoe dropped that things got really bad. Madison says governors ordered closed dairy farmers biggest market by far schools in restaurants. You know the five pound tubs of sour cream and cream cheese and every time. A Burger joint puts two slices of cheese on a burger. That's over the country over the United States. That's a lot of demand for cheese. All of a sudden. We saw that. Go almost completely away so you have more demand in the dairy aisle at the grocery store but lots less demand from the prepared foods industry. Andrew Nevada Vich is professor of agricultural economics at Cornell University. He says the bottom line is bad for farmers the net net of the parts of the dairy industry that are selling more with against the parts of the dairy industry that are selling less is clearly pushing down on total sales opportunities and that's why the dairy farmers of America Milk Co op is telling. Lyle would in northern New York to dump three loads of milk a week and that especially hurts would says because farmers thought twenty twenty would be a comeback year for dairy. We've had five years of bad mouth crisis and boy this year. We're finally going to knock it out of the park but woods says milk prices could drop as low as ten dollars per hundred weight far below the cost of production politicians in dairy country and farm. Groups are calling on the federal government to provide financial assistance and to buy dairy products for food programs would says for now he has no alternative but to shrug it off. Keep working and keep dumping milk just conflict forward and keep trying to put one foot part of the other in working with your bank and working with different people and just trying to like. I said keep moving forward for here now. I'm David Summer Stain last month. After Ohio's governor Mike Dewine ordered businesses including restaurants too close to the public. I spoke with Jessica Parkson Co owner of a restaurant in Lakewood Ohio cold salt. It had shut down and had to lay off. Its Staff Jessica feared. She would never be able to reopen. This was before the cares act was passed by Congress. We've got Jessica on the line now to see whether things have changed Jessica. Thanks for joining us again. He Jeremy Thank you for having me back will. And it's been a month since salt closed to the public How is it going at this point? It's going okay we open. We're going into our third week of curbside. We do a total non touch transaction with our customers that call in. Everything's paid over the phone. We have The pull up next to us with their trunks open pleased their food into their trunks and away they go. We were able to hire back almost our entire kitchen staff. All of our salary employees to other servers came back to help out with car deliveries and whatnot. And how do you make sure that your staff are being safe and are able to distance from each other while they're working we have been Pretty much together since all of this has gone down so if you WANNA call it quarantining amongst ourselves I have a cousin that made us all masks that we wear gloves. Obviously when we're preparing things we had a local distillery Watershed distillery dropped off. Ten gallons of hand sanitizer for us that they had made. And we're using that as well and did you apply for a small business loans and were you able to get one before the program ran out of money. The first time so the week that we closed I believe it was that Thursday was on with The disaster loan SBA. I applied for it three separate times. Three separate times was kicked off the site and the loan that I had been applying for was no longer there because they kept changing the verbiage of it and so. I'M ASSUMING ATTORNEYS AND WHATNOT. Had to re post everything The P P P loan. That had finally come out. I immediately got on the phone with my banks. They were able to help us assistant and we signed off on our documentation yesterday so I should have the PP money. I'm hoping within the next ten days in our your employees Able to make the amount of money that they were making before or they at least able to make enough to live on right now. Yeah so we kept our salary employees on so they're making what they made before and then our servers that came back we're paying them a significant wage and then plus any tips that come through. We dispersed those now. I have to say I feel like I'm doing a good deed. Every time I order a takeout from a local restaurant because I I want to support local businesses and I wonder how much are your customers making up for some of the difference are they ordering more than they. Otherwise would are they ordering less what what's going on people are ordering. We're selling out almost every single night. And they are taking fairly good care of our staff as well so it's been wonderful. So when do you think based on what you're seeing there Ohio? When do you think that you'll be able to reopen as a restaurant that people can come and sit down at and do you think that they will do that when that possibility is there? We have a governor dewine. Who's been like on the forefront of the governors that have closed states down? He's talking about restaurants being in the first phase of reopening which is made I. I have no idea what it's going to look like and I don't know if we will open up. During that first phase there have been talks that you have to lose most of the capacity in your restaurant only operating at forty percent. If you have a bar in your restaurant nobody will be allowed to sit at your bar so you can't utilize that. I've heard talks about restaurants having to serve on disposable plates flatware. That's a huge cost for us. Huge takeout is a huge cost for us so monetarily. Just not sure if that would be in our cards to do and maybe we would wait until phase two. But you know like I said it's ever changing and we're not making any concrete decisions until we hear what governor dewine has to say last time we talked to you. You said that you weren't selling gift cards. Because you were worried. People wouldn't be able to redeem them. Because you were where you wouldn't reopen at all It sounds like you don't feel that way anymore or do you go back and forth if you would've asked me. That question on Saturday probably would have been a different answered gift cards for us. Right now are great for the revenue that we would like to have right now being that we're open for curbside but in the future. I need that cash flow and not people paying their bills off of gift cards that they already paid for. So we're still not selling gift cards but do you think that you will reopen? Yeah I mean. We're fighting as hard as we can to reopen. That is our end goal. I mean we're doing everything we can to try and maintain it and stay open reopen that Jessica Parkson who is co owner of salt. A restaurant in Lakewood Ohio Jessica. I'm glad to hear things are going a little bit better this time than when we last spoke to you Continued good luck to you. Thank you so much. I really appreciate you having us on again and here now is a production of NPR. Wb ARE IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE BBC World Service. I'm Jeremy Hobson. Im Tanya Moseley. This is here now.

Trump's shadow fades away. You're going to see an awful lot. Change the has been over for weeks but only today republicans acknowledging reality. The electoral college has spoken today. I want to congratulate. President elect joe biden tonight. How wildly anti-democratic irresponsible. The republican party has been throughout this election. Aftermath as the maga dead. Enders rampage in dc egged on by the president and defiling a black church than the massive and sophisticated russian hack of multiple government agencies. How does it go the day to the big roll out. The fda gets ready to okay a second vaccine but all in starts right now. Good evening from new york. I'm chris as you know. The constitution doesn't care about the speeches. Mitch mcconnell or what title. The opposition party uses talk about the duly elected incoming president states and a fundamental democratic sense elections end because of the voters. Not anyone else. They are determined by an impartial. Counting the votes cash freely unfairly with the winner claiming the title winner free of whatever antics lawsuits were conspiracy theories wining there is by the losers and so in that sense. It has been very clear for weeks. The joe biden will be the forty six president united states. Donald trump will join the ignominious category of one term president historically notable and famous group of political losers. But what has been so horrifying to watch over the last six weeks. Is that in a deeper sense right. Democracies do depend on the loser conceding and the peaceful transfer of power as a baseline principle that all parties and participants by into the knowledge of the democratic legitimacy. By the loser his or her party is kind of the glue. The binds us and we have watched the president and his allies like the one hundred twenty six members of congress and the at least eighteen attorneys general who signed onto the failed texas lawsuit to overturn the election. We have watched them engage in the project of going to rip apart the union to tear this fundamental. Promise out from under us and that is why it was news. Today it was news. Shouldn't have been but it was news. When the highest ranking republican member of congress senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell finally after nearly six weeks was forced to acknowledge the inevitable. So as this morning our country has officially a president elect and vice president elect. The electoral college has spoken today. I want to congratulate. President elect joe biden. Now it is for the best mcconnell. Another member of his party are accepting trump's loss at last but that faction of people who have put their names in the history of record as opponents of american democracy opponents of the regular peaceful transfer of power. They're not just going away. They can't unring that bell and we are living all of us with the reverberations of what they've done. Look at what's happening right now in the state of georgia where two republican senate candidates are now basically at war with the can secretary state brad ravensburger because rapids burger committed a grave sin over refusing to unlawfully steal the election for president trump. He is now the subject of increasingly vicious attacks by members of his own party by those two senate candidates who endorse that lawsuit to strip their own voters that are votes and by the president who today re tweeted this image of raffin burger and the governor of georgia. Brian camp a reliable stalwart maga ahead. He tweeted this image of them wearing masks with a chinese flag on them and the threat that they will quote soon. Be going to jail now. That georgia special run off. The one that's going to happen in january is off to a roaring start early voting in the senate began yesterday for that senate runoff shattering records one hundred and sixty eight thousand people voting in person yesterday. That is up if you can believe it. From the one hundred thirty six thousand. On the first day of early voting in the general election joe biden visited the state of georgia holding a driving rally in atlanta urging the voters to flip the state blew for him last month to come it again the democratic candidates and give them the majority in the senate at the same time. The current senate majority leader. Mitch mcconnell is now turning on a dime to try to stop members of his own caucus particularly the more ambitious ones. The wanna be president who wanna suck up the most flagrantly to donald trump in the maga- base from pulling some sort of antics when congress tallies the electoral college results on january. Six jake sherman political reporting today that mcconnell along with senator john thune pleaded with senate republicans to not object to the election results. Mcconnell calling it a terrible vote for the party because they'd have to vote the objection down which puts them in the bad position voting against the president but of course the incentive structure here is clear all the political incentives on the republican side is. We're seeing with leffler. And purdue right now they're all towards this kind of procedural anti-democratic extremism in pursuit of donald trump in pursuit of holding onto minority rule. No matter the cost no matter the moral degradation there is no short-term political consequence. There may not be any medium or long-term what either and so there will be republican senators. Who object on january sixth. That's my prediction. I'm happy to be wrong. But that's the fundamental problem here. And now we've entered this new era president. Joe biden says he's had a bunch of nice phone calls the republican centers. Which again i suppose better than the opposite and president-elect biden i think he believes this and god bless him for this. Belief keeps assuring us that they'll be able to work together. He and republican members of the united states congress but boy. Is it hard to see your way clear. That isn't it. There is one thing though that is clear clear. Six weeks ago clear today clearer by the day that donald trump has lost. He lost and he's lost and lost again. And then he's asked for recounts and lawson sued and lost and sued again loss and he keeps losing and he will very shortly be out of a job. Senator chris van hollen democrat from maryland. And he joins me now. I center you your reaction to mitch mcconnell speech today and and the fact that some group of republican colleagues who were holding out i think somewhat preposterously have now concluded they can no longer. How significant is well chris. Good to be with you and As you said it. What universe is it headline news that the head of the republican party in the senate as acknowledged that political reality and the election results. And that's where we are as republican party. Which is the personality cult of. Donald trump I agree with you. i think you're gonna. They're gonna find a republican senator of who may support challenging the results in the house on january six. So let's not get mitch. Mcconnell and these republicans any credit in fact they fueled this fraudulent narrative of donald trump's for weeks and and really undermined confidence in the results. You sound like someone. Who isn't there's two theories here right one is. This is a political calculation because of the nature of the base and because set of short-term political incentives that are not reflective of the inner nature of these individuals. And how the locked in the future and the other is at like the whole thing's rotten all the way through the faction has has curdled. It's become something toxic and dangerous and your answer. That first question puts set. You sound like you're more in the second camp and the president-elect is well. I know the president-elect is going to do everything he can to reach out for the country and try to get mitch mcconnell and others to support a bipartisan agenda. But i also have watched mitch mcconnell over the years and i don't see him changing his political dna which has been obstructionism down the board. This is a sheer political calculation by mitch. Mcconnell today was really is last offramp before january. Six as you pointed out. I if he continues to say that president trump may have won this election then on january six if any republican. Senator joins the challenge. Then we're gonna have a vote in the united states senate and mitch. Mcconnell republican senators would have to vote to overturn the elections in pennsylvania. Wisconsin and other states. If they're gonna continue to stick with the trump lie So mcconnell recognize that today was really his only offering. There is while this is happening right. There see sort of parallel tracks. Which is that. There is very urgent legislative business to be done on some kind of relief. Package Some covid relief package mcconnell. Today that it they the something. We'll be hammered out. I've covered this so much. I start to feel like. I'm losing my mind because just gone around around around around for months. Where are things from your perspective. I do think chris today. Finally i think we're getting there. Finally mcconnell acknowledged that it would be unconscionable for congress to pack it in this month without getting krona virus relief And we did have this. Partisan package that provided a framework. It's not perfect i. It's an interim relief package the to take us through march and into the biden harris administration. And it does provide. Ashley needed relief. So i do believe we'll we'll get a good amount of what was in that package. Not as much as i would like But i think we will come away with something. So i know. People don't like to negotiate in public. And i've been through this type bill. I'm just gonna ask you a naive question. You answer our so. The two most contentious issues in this package has been money for state and local governments. Which mitch mcconnell hates which obviously is substantively. Urgent because state local governments are going to be hammered. you're gonna have austerity then cascade through the calendar out past the pandemic and heard all kinds of folks firefighters and teachers and so forth. Okay we should have state and local. The other thing is it mitch. Mcconnell wants us liability shield. So you can't sue your boss. Who makes you come into a covert infected workplace. And i guess the question is would it be better to have both of those than neither because it seems to me the money and spur state and local is so vital that if that's the choice it's not clear to me that both of them should go away. What do you think so chris. There are a lot of other elements in this package. That are not direct funding for state local governments that will greatly benefit state local government so for example substantial education funding local state governments would otherwise have to foot that bill of money for rental assistance for mental health support for food assistance for transit. These are all costs local and state governments. Otherwise would have to bear that they won't and they are in this bill I do not accept mcconnell's blackmail what he's saying here is that in order for us to provide direct funding state. Local governments people have to give up their rights to to go to court If they've been badly wrong. As so i don't think any america should have to give up their rights in order for the federal government to provide the release that we should be providing a no matter. What but announced what mcconnell's doing. It's very cynical. This is essentially providing in humanity to corporations. That's the bottom line and americans shouldn't have to sell out their rights In order to get their help the good news is these other. Provisions of the bill do provide substantial health unemployment insurance at three hundred dollars extra week the small business assistance and the other items i mentioned also a continuation of the moratorium on evictions extension of you know student loan forbearance so there are a lot of very important things in this bill. Senator chris van holland of maryland. Thank you so much for joining us tonight. Good to be with you. Thanks whatever mitch mcconnell or anyone else says there are going to be. Tens of millions of conservative diehards in mogadishu. Ot's who just don't accept the result election and there really was an intricate conspiracy to a steal it fraudulently from donald trump and. They're not going anywhere. Jeremy peters national political report. The new york times has been covering this part of our political subculture. Jeremy i i wonder how much what we're seeing our face. Value beliefs people have about a set of actual facts which is that hugo chavez's ghost was somehow injected into a dominion voting machine to change things. And how much. It's kind of emotional affected performance of loyalty. That doesn't mean they actually think the election was stolen. What do you think. I think you have a republican party right now. That is afraid of its base. And so they are there for parroting what they know that their base wants to hear and often that is that they think the election was stolen and they think that there was fraud and that's because you had really decades in decades of mistrust seated in the minds of the conservative voter going back really to the post new deal days when you had phyllis schlafly and the john birch society talking about a communist conspiracy in the highest levels of the american government. Now it's easy to listen to. Somebody like sydney powell talk about hugo chavez and cuba in china and the communist in venezuela and really hear echoes of that kind of paranoia. It's it's not that much of elite. You're going to see where this all started now. Modern day times. You have fox news. You have a conservative media ecosystem that has told voters over and over and over again that there is fraud at the polls and so that's kind of bearing itself out right now and when you but you've never had four the president of the united states who believes that that's happened than when they hear it coming from his mouth. It's a lot easier for them to make that leap and while the elected officials might not necessarily believe that this election was stolen. Their voter certainly do. But they're afraid of their voters and their voters are captive president trump. Yeah i mean. Water will always sort of go to the lowest point right and and the the conservative media and this is true largely of the meteorite will always find its way to seep down audience demand. So if you look at the. Here's a screenshot of newsmax. Right like right now. There is considerable demand in among conservatives for this content path determined to. It's not over like people want to hear that. And that's that is being pumped out. I guess the question is like there's some sense the whole time like this is going to break or there's going to be some moment words like well. No longer and mcconnell. Was that today. But my sense is that donald trump he can't ever be that for donald trump. This will continue out forever now. That's exactly right. And that's why they keep moving the bar. If you've been listening to conservative media. Which i i mean. I don't recall conservative anymore. It's more like pro-trump media it over the last you week since the election. Keep moving the bar. Okay so first it were. It was all of these court. Cases that lawyers said he powell and lynnwood and others were filing on behalf of the trump campaign. That was the bar then. They lost those cases so the new bar became the supreme court. They lost that. The bar became the electoral college. Because there was a movement to push state legislatures to nominate a slate of electors would vote for president trump. That failed yesterday. We saw spectacularly now. According to stephen miller the white house advisor the new bar is january twentieth day in the constitution that is set for the president to be inaugurated. So they're going to keep moving that bar. We know what's going to happen on. January twentieth biden is going to be inaugurated as the forty-six president of the united states. So really what this all is. It's about de legitimizing biden. As no one. I talked to thinks that they actually have a shot at undermining biden's lee in the polls or taking away. His victory in any of these swing states. They know that they're they're they are damaging him as the incoming president. And that's really what you're looking at right. Jeremy peters thanks so much for joining us tonight tonight new reporting of a sophisticated russian hack targeting multiple federal agencies. It's been going on since the spring. Apparently how far they got. How bad it it's next. Hi i'm mike hickson baugh. Nbc news national investigative reporter and host of do no harm in original podcast from nbc news.

Join me for season for the. Oh and msnbc podcasts. Search for the forever. You're listening right now. And subscribe new episodes every wednesday as president trump continues to rant about a nonexistent enemy who stole the election from him. A real adversary would seem has snaked. Its way to the computer systems of nearly every major federal agency. The trump administration's has acknowledged hackers not only accessed but compromise federal agencies including the treasury department the commerce department the state department department of homeland security and parts of the pentagon the new york times reports. The hack was engineered by one of russia's premier intelligence agencies report that major entities who use the compromise software include the. Cdc the justice department a number of utility companies nearly all fortune five hundred companies and by the way los alamos national laboratory were nuclear weapons. That are designed in major. Defense contractors like boeing. Not only did this. Russian intelligence unit get access everywhere but according to the times again quote the attacks had been underway as early as this spring meaning. They continued undetected through months of the pandemic and the election season. So how could. Russia defeat usa thoroughly for so long the coal pro rough of cybersecurity digital espionage from new york times. She's here to help explain it. All nicole i gotta say i'm completely fascinated by the story just even at a basic tactical level before we get to the geopolitical stuff. So just let's start with the method here which seems somewhat ingenious. There is a cybersecurity company called solar winds. Who are they and what do they do. So solar winds for years was known as a network monitoring company. It was used by. It administrators to find out what was on their network who was connected to the cloud. What devices employees were using. It just gave them a lay of the land about two years ago. They became known as a security company and they sort of had rebranded and they basically are used. We're learning only now that this attack has taken place by four hundred twenty five of the fortune. Five hundred banks most federal agencies the nsa parts of the pentagon. The jess and a lot of lease users have been compromised. So my understanding. And i would love for you to correct me where i'm wrong. My understanding is that somehow this russian hacking unit was able to compromise a software update of solar wins such that clients who then you did ran the software update were essentially stalling kind of back a hidden back door for these hackers into their own systems. Undetected is that is is that right is that what exactly right. That's exactly right. And they call it a supply chain attack basically compromise just like you said. They compromised software update from solar winds. That made its way to something. Like eighteen thousand solar wind customers and of those. We know that dozens have been compromised. Now the group. That's behind this. We believe it's a unit of russian intelligence called. Sp are. They're very good. They're very careful and they have covered their tracks in such a way that they were not about to burn this capability by using every access. They had or finding out now that they really went for the high value targets and that so far we know has been parts of the pentagon. Dhs the commerce department the state department intimate other agencies. You mentioned right. This is quoting from your so quoting analysts. Said it was hard to know which was worse that federal government was blindsided by the russian intelligence agencies or that when it when it was evident what was happening white house officials said but the key here to me or one of the key most important things from my understanding of your reporting is they get this access and they don't trip any wires they don't triggering alarms and essentially no one knows for a pretty long time and then because they're interested in maximizing the value of the access. They don't just go. Rummaging willy nilly because they don't want to let people know about the access and so there's we think months were huge. Parts of the federal digital infrastructure was compromised. It's it's really stunning. And i think the thing that is really stunning is the fact that only found out about it because fire i. One of the top cyber security firms in the us was itself compromised and fire. I disclosed that early now. Enrolling back the tape on its own attack. It realized that they started to suspect that this might have been some kind of supply chain attack and indeed. They were able to confirm that it had come in through solar winds. And so they alerted the alerted law enforcement. They alerted the intelligence agencies. It was only through this tip from fire. I that federal agencies learned that they've been hacked and so we've been reporting this over the past three days. We know that there was an emergency meeting of the nfc called on saturday and since then it appears that the federal agencies and the intelligence community and dhs charged with protecting our elections are were caught completely flat footed and have just been trying to understand the extent of the damage inside their networks and understand how badly they were compromised. So you've got a private company. Essentially it blows the whistle on this because they themselves were compromised through the same supply chain attack solar winds. Who's at the center of this. And i would not really wanna be their ceo today. There's reporting from reuters. That a security researcher of kumar told reuters last year the he alerted solar winds. Accompany that anyone could use solar wins upbeat server by using the password solar winds one two three which seems like a bad thing yet. It's not. It's not a great password especially not for a company that bills itself as a security company. So what we've been learning over. The last couple of days is that even though solar winds rebranded itself as a security company a couple years ago they didn't have a chief information security officer. Which these days is the hallmark of a company that has a very immature approach to security. They didn't have one. They didn't have a vulnerability disclosure program which means it was really hard for security researchers to let the company now when they were finding holes in it systems. There was one point last year.

Who helped me make sense of what's happening in our society our world. I really enjoy our conversations. I hope you will too so join me for new episodes. Every tuesday just search for wisest happening wherever. You're listening right now and subscribe all the way back in seventeen ninety four the earliest chapter of this nation as an independent nation of the legendary preacher educator and writer richard alan was born into slavery founded. The african methodist episcopal. Church or ame church in philadelphia. It was the first independent lacked nomination. The united states and it is not overstating things to say. It is one of the most important institutions in this country's history and this was the foundational black church a sanctuary for african americans under the boot of slavery and persecution to worship and to congregate and to fight for civil rights and for dignity and for equality and then in the eighteen twenties and eighteen thirties. Black worshipers founded to amy churches in washington. Dc specifically israel bethel and union bethel. And the reason they did it was because of disaffection from to mostly white methodist congregations which required african americans to sit in the gallery these churches through themselves the cause of abolishing slavery and they were stations on the underground railroad and church leaders worked to increase literacy into lift up black america in eighteen. Seventy two those churches merged to become metropolitan ame which is one of the oldest black churches in see a legendary center of black life to this day. The very first elected african american center to serve a full term. That would be blanche bruce of mississippi during reconstruction. He was a member and eight ninety. Four frederick douglass gave his final speech. They're calling for an end to segregation american apartheid. Douglas's funeral was held inside the same church the next year and then more than a century later metropolitan ame hosted the funeral of another civil rights. Pioneer legendary activist rosa parks. As church is witnessed the torture history of racial oppression in this country and the centuries old battle for equality dignity self determination under god to make real the promise that black lives matter and the nation went through a brutal reckoning this year and protests over racial justice metropolitan amy on surprisingly put up a black lives matter sign. And then this weekend. A bunch of marauding supporters of the president came to downtown dc and they gleefully tore that signed up. This is what it looked like. Metropolitan ame pastor. Reverend william h lamar. The fourth responded in the washington. Post today that quote it mattered. Not the sign was hours. The policy that motivated the perpetrators on sunday night was the underbelly of the american narrative of white men can employ violence. Take what they want to do what they want. Call that criminality justice freedom and liberty. Polity he was not the only historic black. Church with this happen would appear to be. Trump's supporters also rip down black lives matter banner from asbury united methodist church which dates back to eighteen thirty six and then they set the banner on fire The senior pastor asbury united said that that scene you just saw for him reminiscent of cross burnings. There have been many many moments of discussing bigotry. That have emanated from the movement. That supports this kirk president desecrating two churches that have borne witnesses nations struggle for equality tearing burning signs. That simply assert that lives of black americans matter. Well that's that's about as low as it gets too big announcement today. That should help. Stop the virus from spreading food and drug administration authorized the first home task for covid. You'll be available in drugstores without a prescription and the manufacturer hopes to make three million tests in january. Now that's a little over a day and a half of testing or not even that but the fda also said they intend to authorize a second vaccine. This one we've been tracking it's me and my bonaire moderna and they're gonna authorize it for emergency use on friday and like the vaccine developed by pfizer and biontech. The modern vaccine is most effective after two dose regimen. But there is also evidence that just one dose of maderas may stop the viruses. Spread does that by reducing a symptomatic infection. A once the fda gives that go ahead the government plans to ship six million doses of moderna vaccine across the country and the pfizer vaccine continues to be developed and distributed. As well north carolina's democratic governor rod cooper recent op. ed titled. Help is on the way the number of covid patients in his state hospitals doubling in the last month you knows right now even to vaccines are not enough govern north carolina. Roy cooper joins me now. Governor is great to have you. I i guess just a sense of where things stand in your state right now. We're seeing the epicenter of this of this wave started in the midwest starting to see mid west cases and hospitalizations coming down but every other region the country still on the upward slope. Where are you north carolina. Thanks for having me. Chris from day one in this pandemic governors have taken the lead and step into the bridge by coordinating testing tracing fiving ep. Making the hard decisions on restrictions educating people telling them the truth and now it's going to be our job to make sure that we distribute vaccine expectedly are states. We also know that. We're not going to be able to cheat herd immunity through vaccinations for several months. So we have some dark months ahead of us and we're gonna have to keep working on the things we know that. Work mass social distancing a gathering limits in north carolina we had restrictions vice-like bars being close to have a modified a stay at home order. What people have to be home by ten. We're going to have to keep working. I know people are tired of this but we cannot let weariness win. People are getting sick and dying and it's up to all of us to try to come together particularly after this election now and do what we need to spread this fires. I saw polling from north carolina on the vaccine police. Last week says that less than half with carolina residents are would take vaccine only forty percent of north carolina. Respondents said they would get an fda approved vaccine to fight the virus. I imagine getting that number is going to be an enormous goal of yours. How do you approach that while a lot of waves i we're going to engage in already have engaged community leaders faith leaders healthcare leaders doing public service announcements in. Were showing that these vaccines were approved by independent both of expert scientists who really have no stake in the game and that things are much more transparent and we believe these vaccines are going to be effective and safe. And we're gonna continue to work. I mean there are a lot of reasons. People come at this a lot of different ways. But there's no question that these vaccines are going to be safe and effective and we're trying to get that message out throughout communities were particularly worried about african american community a lot of understandable deep-seated concern because of the horrible history. That is there that we have a lot of leaders in the african american community who are stepping up and saying. This is something that we need to do because we know this pandemic as communities of color inequitably har- is that we've got to work. Continue to make sure that we get this vaccine al across our state and across country. One one thing that we've seen over these last nine or ten months and it's been a dispiriting is a sort of polarization around a bunch of sort of basic core issues about the public health. Guidance or masks or things like that and you're in a very divided state obviously politically. I wonder if you see that on the vaccine or no. It would seem to me that you wouldn't see on a vaccine necessarily in so far as obviously president trump views it as a great accomplishment of is has bragged about it one would imagine conservative republican lawmakers who are fans of the president you know going along and saying this is important is there unity and unanimity on the vaccine or is that another thing that you anticipate being polarized. You don't see as much violent opposition to the vaccine as you do mass and social distancing in some of the other restrictions that really can help us slow the virus. What we have mostly with people is skeptical of. A lot of it is based on disinformation. And so we're trying to get the truth out to the people about vaccines. And what. I'm hoping is that the population will come around on this. This is going to be so important for us to get. Everybody vaccinated as quickly as we can. We're starting with frontline. Health care workers and staff and residents in long term care facilities are will move to adults with two or more chronic conditions and trying to get the vaccine to the people who would more easily get sick and die or who fighting on the front lines for all of us courageously. I really tip my hat and am so grateful for these healthcare workers who are working day in and day out each shift so tiring in a lot of the vaccine came out. There was such a motion in such relief that it was finally here. I'm proud of the people in north carolina. The researchers of the scientists at our universities research triangle park. They'd been studying researching corona viruses for years. And it's a remarkable achievement of science and technology to get these vaccines to market so quickly. We've taken advantage of that now. Now we need to make it work. And let's turn the corner on this. This pandemic his time that we do that. All right governor. Roy cooper in the state of north carolina. So much joining us tonight. Experts coming up a top white house official with a severe case of covid. Nineteen who didn't get the same care as the president. His buddies the store. You have not heard next. We've seen dozens of cova cases in the white house. And we know a lot of the names of the folks who've contracted the virus people like hope hicks senior aide in the white house one of the president's closest confidants housing and urban development secretary ben carson. Who was quite sick. Presidential lawyer and conspiracy theorists rudy giuliani. Of course there was donald. Trump himself was quite famously. Hospitalized with the virus All of those people receive topnotch medical care including care. that's not available generally to the public. Today we learn more about another white house. Cova patient someone. You probably haven't heard of someone who isn't and who isn't coming out of this ordeal saying he feels twenty year younger like the president did historians detail jennifer jacobs senior national political reporter bloomberg who has broken many of the stories of cova in the white house. And she's here with us tonight. Jennifer first of all you've been doing incredible reporting on this beat strange as a beat as it may be Can you tell us. About the mr cre- the head of white house security and his battle with this illness lease one of the white house officials. That didn't come out of this with very few consequences. He actually had some very severe consequences. So he's the head of white house security which is his role is the person that handles personnel security clearance to come onto campus onto white house. Campus passes and things like that. He works very closely with the secret service on security matters around the campus. He works in his skiff In a building near the white house on the white house campus and we reported in october that he'd been hospitalized in september with the corona virus. And that's pretty much all we knew about him until recently we were alerted to a gofundme page that a family friend of his had created to raise money for him and we verified that this go fund me page was indeed legitimate and valid in the family friends outlined in in the public documents on the fund. We pitch some of the consequences of what had happened to him during his three months in the hospital and one of the consequences was he had some complications for the krona virus. And he needed an amputation. He lost his big toe on his left foot and on his right on he lost his right foot as well as the lower part of his leg so he had some very severe consequences is in a rehabilitation facility now near washington according to this family friend crivelli. Who's this gentleman's name who you report on. Remember reading your piece back in october about him. I had not encountered people that That i knew who ended up with amputation. Not sort of seen that firsthand until this the gofundme page is striking. This is someone who works in the white house with a pretty serious and important job who now appears to be facing very significant medical debt right so i wasn't able to talk to the family his family as berry private and his ask. The white house did not publicize his case. But we know from what his family friend wrote at wrote on the gofundme page that she's as he has staggering medical bills. Of course he's a federal employee with with good health insurance but she did say that as a consequence of his amputations that he needs various adjustments to his home. He needs a different shower modifications in his bathroom. He needs handrails. He needs his car modified to accommodate a wheelchair so she said his his medical costs have just really racked up more. Broadly here one of the things that you your reporting has been so important for is is just reminding everyone that the white house is a workplace a workplace where a whole bunch of people work reporters like yourself individuals. Like mr bailey. Folks that are in the staff of the kitchen and all those folks are being you know. They have to do their job and they're often. It seems because of white house policies which appear to be charitably fairly lax often. It seems being exposed to a significant amount of danger viral transmission. Right there have been a lot of white house officials who have been exposed to this Even though there in one of the most secure compounds in the world we know of at least four dozen people connected to this but we just don't know a whole lot of details about how deep bailey contracted the virus. I don't know the origins of that So it's unclear where he got it but we do know that he worked in a secure on the white house. Campus was diagnosed in september in remember. This was pre election. I'm told that acrid. Bailey is a very very strong supporter of president trump. In when he contracted this virus was in the hospital. This was at the point of time when the president was telling the remember. He tweeted when he got walter. Reed medical center. Don't be afraid of this virus. We have all sorts of knowledge in drugs to take care of people at the same time. Pre bailey was in the hospital. Is your sense that the corner has been turned in the white house in terms of its protocols. I saw complaints from the white house. Correspondents association just the other day. That christine on the governor of south dakota sort of walk through on a tour unmasked in a very very close and find confined space had things improved their protocol wise. I know from my reporting that over the months things did improve as cases broke out here and they're starting way back in in march one of the vice president's aides got sick in another vice president. the press secretary to the vice-president got sick in in may different protocols were put in place over those months. I do know that white house staff wear masks when we're walking around in the hallways there are there hand sanitizer free mass it. There are many people who take extreme precautions in the white house including some of the people who did get the coronavirus are among some of the people who were the most cheerful about the virus. Yeah well getting the virus is not some you know. Some some bad being insufficiently vigilant. The thing is implacable. Jennifer jacobs a one woman test and trace team on the white house.

A suspected member of the oath keepers militia. Who provided security for roger stone on the day of the capital Insurrection has been arrested in connection with the riot. That's according to federal authorities on monday. The man robert manuka was expected to appear on monday afternoon in federal court in white plains. New york to face charges stemming from the siege the documents containing the specific crimes that mr mnuchin said to have committed were not made public in advance of the hearing last month the new york times and other media outlets identified mr mnuchin who to parlor in upstate. New york as one of six who guarded roger stone. The morning of the insurrection and isaac stevens sturgeon thirty two year montana resident traveled to kenya after the insurrection but he has now been deported back to the united states. He faces an eight count. Indictment and prosecutors will seek his detention to await trial. He was wanted for assault on federal law enforcement officers and had his photo added to the fbi's web page on january sixteenth then. He flew to kenya on january. Twenty fourth then. He was ordered deported after he was indicted and he was arrested as he arrived at jfk over the weekend. I'm just. I feel like maybe we need to fix a loophole in our system. If someone has put on. Fbi watch list on january sixteenth. Maybe they don't let them fly kenya on january twenty fourth. Yeah that might be something. That comes up in the insurrection commission. Right like how was he able to even get on a plane after he hadn't been arrested or charged yet but he had been identified so that should be a thing. Just re really really interesting. This story is fantastic. I'm just happy that it's happening President biden is nominated female generals to the elite four-star commands. The defense department announced months after their pentagon bosses had agreed on their promotion but they held back at fear that the then president the former i would reject the officers because they were winning so the nominations of general Jacqueline devon almost almost correct. I have a feeling you probably know on that one. Yeah i believe so great. She's in the air force. And she was nominated to head transportation command which overseas the military spawning global transportation network and the nomination of lieutenant general laura j richardson of the army to the southern command which oversees military activities in latin america now advanced to the senate where they're expected to be approved so the unusual strategy to this delay. We'd cover this in the podcast before this was intended to protect their accomplishments and their careers because they are both incredibly accomplished in their field in their perspective branches and it was devised last fall by mark asper and who was then as we know the defense secretary at the time and general mark milley so that he was the chairman of the joint of staff at the time now they both thought this is such this. It tells you exactly who donald is. They both thought to generals were exceptional officers deserving of the commands but under donald. They were worried that any candidates other than white men for jobs mostly held by white men might run into resistance once their nominations reached the white house so they were smart enough to hold onto these. I'm sure it was controversial at the time. But i think it was one of the best decisions that could have been made. Ceremony today was awesome Vice president kamala harris announced president. Joe biden who then Announced on on international women's day promotion of these two intest incredible incredible generals now in federal court filing friday night immigration and customs enforcement says it's transitioning family detention centers to short term facilities. That will release families after no more than seventy two hours. Isis disclosure Made in the flora's lawsuit brought more than a decade ago. On behalf of immigrant children effectively suggests that the agency is ending family. Detention policy actually started under the obama administration in two thousand fourteen but made much worse by zero tolerance policy. Now even who who jeff sessions is regretful. Is regretful about the trump administration sought to expand family detention by holding families over twenty days. The limit imposed by the judge and the floor is case as a friday. Only thirteen families remained in ice detention and seven had been scheduled for release that day. The remaining six families are scheduled to be released march seventh unless they test positive for covid. In which case they will be required to remain for a quarantine period before they're released at the start of the biden administration ice operated three family detention facilities to in texas located in dili and karnes counties and one in pennsylvania as february twenty six all families from the pennsylvania facility had been released as of february twenty six. That's according to the filing on friday. The to texas facilities will become short-term centers while the pennsylvania facility berks family residential center will no longer house families could an interview with nbc on thursday homeland. Security secretary alex. Marcus said is the tension is not where a family believes. I'm so happy. They did this curiosity. And i know we've got a lot of news to cover. Why pennsylvania egg no. I'm not sure really interesting. I would. I would be interested to know why there was a detention facility in pennsylvania so far away from the so far away from the border something for me to look at something for me to look up on this story. President biden marked international women's day. Monday by signing two executive orders creating gender policy council and reviewing trump era changes to title nine the federal law prohibiting sex based discrimination in education according to the administration's officials. Now the first order establishes the white house gender policy council to work with other policy councils to advance gender equality in domestic and foreign policy development. Comback systemic bias and discrimination including sexual harassment and focus on increasing female participation in the labor force and decreasing wage and wealth gaps. That is huge. That's from the officials. Now the council will also focus on transgender rights and supporting care workers predominantly women of color. This is also tremendously important officials. Point out the covid. Nineteen pandemic has hit women the hardest We know this but not a lot of people. Do the two point five million left the workplace in twenty twenty. That's two point. Five billion mit million women. That's compared to one point. Eight million men who did the same now. The us department of labor's february jobs report lease. Friday found that black and hispanic women showed the greatest declines in labor force participation so the gender policy council led by julia. Serano also chief of staff to the first lady. Joe biden and jennifer klein former chief strategy and policy officer for the anti sexual harassment group. Times up will work with all cabinet secretaries and submit an annual report to the president to measure progress on prioritizing gender equality across the government biden's likely to name a special assistant to the president and senior adviser on gender based violence. The magin this would never fucking happen. In the last administration no relief families from detention pro promising not to keep them more than seventy two hours and You know a gender equality gender council and it was also very important that that biden mentioned that transgender women are women absolutely When when talking about this and that they're going also focus on transgender women of color. Which is you know the just. We would never have been able to see anything like this. Like i have tears welling up in my eyes. I know i can hear you. As as i'm reading the stories and know that you're feeling this This affected you personally. So i hope you do find some nev indication but in a sense within the story that you know that things will be changing for people. Moving forward are sweet president. Our dear president signed a second order directing the department of education to review all of its regulations orders and guidance to ensure they are consistent with the administration's promise that all students are guaranteed education free from sexual violence. Now betsy devos fuck this one up big time when she was in her position. They're fixing the order explicitly directed department to evaluate title nine chains by president donald trump's education secretary betsy devos who dismantled obama era rules on sexual discrimination and harassment in federally funded education programs. She implemented regulations that altered. The handling of sexual allegations on college campuses giving schools more latitude in deciding whether to even report accusations to the title.

So there are new guidelines out from the united states centers for disease control and prevention. The cdc they say people fully vaccinated against covid nineteen can safely visit with other vaccinated people and small groups of unvaccinated people in some circumstances but there are still important. Safety precautions needed. The cdc defines people who are fully vaccinated as those who are two weeks past their second dose of modern or pfizer and two weeks past the single dose of johnson and johnson. There's growing evidence that people who are vaccinated don't spread covid nineteen but scientists are still trying to understand how long the vaccine protection lasts. But that's really important. These studies are showing. That people who get the vaccine aren't vectors anymore. They can't catch it not know it and spread it. That's really really important. And i'm sure we'll be seeing more studies. And more data on that now. This new cdc guidance says fully vaccinated people can visit other vaccinated people indoors without masks or physical distancing they can visit indoors with unvaccinated people from a single household without masks or physical distancing if the unvaccinated people are at low risk for severe disease. So if you're younger and you're unvaccinated but your folks are both vaccinated. You can visit indoors without masks or physical distancing as long as you the younger person or you know older as long as you're not as long as you're at low risk for severe disease Vaccinated people can skip quarantine and testing if they're exposed to someone who has cove nineteen better as symptomatic but they should monitor for symptoms for fourteen days take temperature etc and this means the vaccinated grandparents can finally feel comfortable visiting their unvaccinated grandchildren and giving them a big hug. Especially if there are local because the cd says people should still avoid travel as long as none of the unvaccinated people in that household at risk for covid nineteen again so the young people need to not be at risk. If you're visiting with older people who have been vaccinated and of you and your friend or both vaccinated. You can finally have dinner together Unmasked no social distancing However people who were vaccinated still need to take precautions in many scenarios the guidelines say fully vaccinated. People must wear a mask and keep good social physical distance around the unvaccinated who were at increased risk for severe covid nineteen or if the unvaccinated person has a household member who's at higher risk. So remember that if you wanna visit your parents make sure you're at risk for disease and your parents are vaccinated. Make sure you don't live with anybody. Who's a high risk because while they're you know they're saying there's early signs that vaccinated people can't be vectors for the virus. We still aren't sure so they're still recommending against that You also wear masks. And physically distance when visiting unvaccinated people who are from multiple households in addition fully vaccinated people should continue basic safety precautions including wearing a mask that fits well and keeping physical distance in public avoiding medium and large sized crowds avoiding poorly ventilated public spaces washing hands frequently and getting tested for covid. Nineteen if they feel sick so kind of the same guidelines vaccinated or not for hanging out in public right now. The cdc director rachelle will linski. Ski said cdc travel guidelines will remain the same for the vaccinated until there is more data about how much or how little vaccinated people can transmit the virus to others. Which is what. I was just mentioning earlier again. Signs are showing that you wouldn't be a vector if you've been back vaccinated but that hasn't been proven hasn't been like in this like peer reviewed or anything Cdc director also added that a larger swath of the population will also need to be vaccinated before. It's really safe now. Biden is set to deliver primetime remarks. This thursday to mark the one year anniversary of the covid lockdown I remember oh. It was a year ago this week when jordan amanda and i were discussing having to record Virtually from home we shouldn't be meeting in person anymore and that we couldn't go out and do things anymore. I remember that and that the rest of our talk until march started again this year pretty much. It was just such a long month. Now regarding the covert relief. Plan the one point nine trillion dollar code relief. Bill passed the senate as we know. Heads back to the house now for final passage before it heads to biden's desk for signature I think they're voting on it wednesday So there was a one day. Delay They i think they were gonna vote on it Tuesday but they're gonna vote on wednesday which means it could hit biden's desk wednesday night or thursday day before he delivers those prime time remarks. The house is expected to hold a procedural vote on the bill Monday night And the final passage. Again slated for wednesday so maybe that procedural vote wouldn't have happened tuesday. I'm not sure. I have to look into that. But there were positive signals from pelosi and her leadership team over the weekend when key. Progressives in the house appeared poised to support the relief bill a second time even though many are expressing frustration at the changes that curtailed the extension of unemployment benefits and blocked an effort to gradually raise the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. Now the extension of unemployment benefits is now done. That's going through september in the final bill. It's gone from four hundred dollars to three hundred dollars a week. But instead of ending july they end in september but even republicans in congress are attacking. Biden's plan to pour hundreds of billions of dollars in pandemic relief aid into local governments those lawmakers in congress or facing resistance from republicans republican mayors in texas arizona. Florida and oklahoma are among those backing biden's state and local government funding plan and in that state and local government. Funding plan is part of the coronavirus aid. Bill that's the senate just passed Quote in a crisis and emergency you check partisanship at the door and you get through the crisis. that's john. Gyles the republican mayor of mesa arizona quote. You can get back to playing politics when the crisis is over and so this is one of those times. The clash between local and national republicans is a rare public division in the party that has generally been united in opposition to policies being pushed by biden and democrats that control congress. It's a breach that biden and house speaker. Nancy pelosi have gone out of their way to exploit as the coronavirus legislation. Enters the final stretch. Now biden underlined the conflict with the party within the party by inviting a bipartisan group of governors and mayors to the white house last month to discuss local funding issues. Pelosi late last month. Said republicans in congress choosing to mock the aid package despite its broad support citing a bipartisan letter signed by mayors across the country requesting more aid including signatures for more than thirty republicans So there's your unity that the only people who aren't united here are the republican lawmakers in congress obscured by other parts of president biden's trillion. No one point nine trillion dollar stimulus package the child benefit has the makings of a policy revolution though framed and technocratic terms as an expansion of an existing tax credit it is essentially guaranteed income for families with children akin to children's allowances. That are common in other rich countries. The plan establishes the benefit for one year but if it becomes permanent as democrats intended to it will greatly enlarge the safety net for the poor and the middle class at a time when the volatile modern economy often leaves families moving between those groups more than ninety three percent of children. That sixty nine million children will receive benefits under the plan. One year cost of more than one hundred billion dollars. In fact the legislation includes so many notable big ticket provisions that it's gaining almost no attention for another notable feature rescuing the pensions of more than one million workers and retirees the senate bill like the version that recently came out of the house addressed what has become a crisis among multi employer pension plans. He's plans are negotiated between unions and employers in fields. Where workers tend to change jobs a lot. Like construction trucking and mining. Some of them have fallen into rough shape. As industries have changed and union jobs have disappeared as the most Troubled funds start to run out of money. So we'll the multi employer pension program at the pension benefit guaranty corporation. Pbgc that's the government run entity that ensures the plans due to the bad physical shape of more than one hundred multi employer plans the pbgc projects. That it's insurance program would become insolvent twenty twenty six if that happened the pg would fail to cover the benefit. Retirees owed leaving many with pennies on the dollar in after years of trying and failing to pass a fix in congress. Democrats decided to attached one to the covid. Nineteen relief plan arguing. It was essential to the retirement security of more than a million people. The provision approved both by the house and senate provides eighty-six indirect for those pension funds. That need it. And it's paid from the treasury through the pbgc that money would partially offset be offset by increased insurance premiums on certain pension funds democrats estimate the total cost to be around sixty five billion. The pension fixed didn't come without a trade off though because they imposed a cap of one point nine trillion on the whole plan. Democrats chose to pare back. The unemployment benefits during negotiations in order to free up money for the pension funding. So that's what happened to the unemployment benefit. It wasn't just somebody wanted it. Lower or for shorter amounts of time. It was a trade off to rescue these pension funds. David brenner pension expert. At seagal consulting firm which advises these multi employer funds called the measure in the relief. Bill a discreet fix for a defined group plans quote. This does allow a narrow subset of trouble. Plans to avoid having to make painful move of reducing benefits for already retired participants. That's what brenner told. The huffington post in an e mail quoted also provides the option for plans that have made the move to possibly reversed the decision. he said The measure buys a lot of time to come up with long-term policy loose solutions to bolster other multi employer plans. That could run into trouble. Although it does not resolve a broader problem in the united states. which is the inability of a very wide swath workers being able to retire with financial security and dignity. Aunt racial demographics are not being uniformly reported by all states and localities those being vaccinated making it nearly impossible for the cdc equity task force to target communities communities being underserved. According to the cdc from the reporting they have fewer than half of black people are receiving the vaccine then compared to whites which will have detrimental impacts on vaccine to point in the economy and obviously commute You know underserved communities all this as more states are easing restrictions on activities and mask wearing is the number of daily cases has dropped below fifty thousand a day wyoming is said to be the next state to end its mask mandate now eligibility for the vaccine is expanding in many states as the cases plateau as more vaccine is being manufactured and nearly ten percent of americans have been fully vaccinated now with over ninety two million vaccines administered. And we're learning that those who have been fully vaccinated as i said earlier have a lower chance of being vectors for the vaccine. But we're still waiting for more information on that as studies continue now we have a lot more news to get to. I will go over it right after this break. So stay with us.

He's going to release his report on the insurrection. According to recommendations supplied by him congress the and these are. This report is about to come out but they got a copy of it early but these are the recommendations he saying. Congress should expand the capitol police's skeletal team of intelligence analysts. Installer retractable fence. Around the building and increase background checks to decrease insider threat risks. Honore will propose a series of into intensive security measures that they say respond to glaring gaps in capitol security measures that enable violent mob to overtake the building and disrupt the transfer of presidential power. That's the insurrection. On january sixth quote any security measure that reduces physical access to the capitol complex makes it less accessible to the public it serves as representatives of people members understandably to be available for their constituents and transparent about their traveling activity activities yet. Such openness concrete physical security vulnerabilities honorees review will ignite what is expected to be a tense reckoning among lawmakers who have been surrounded by thousands of national guard troops fencing and razor wire since the insurrection. This report arrives at a moment of extreme distrust among lawmakers themselves with many democrats viewing the one hundred and thirty eight republicans who voted against certifying. Some of the state's elections re election results as a driver of the violent and republicans blasted honore for his comments accusing some gop lawmakers in capitol police of complicity in the attack. House gop leader. Kevin mccarthy has argued that he worries honorees recommendations would permanently turn the capital into a quote unquote fortress thought trump did that honorees groups most significant recommendations included the establishment of dedicated quick reaction force for all of washington c. one that could respond to developing emergencies and quickly ramp up. Law enforcement capacity. Honorees team will propose three options a force consisting of multiple law enforcement agencies that is granted legal authority and funding a quick reaction force. Run by the dc national guard that draws from national guard units across the country and a permanent military police battalion housed within the dc national guard the advisers also found that the capitol police's ability to process intelligence about the rising volume of threats against lawmakers is in how to quit so here honore is isn't saying the fbi did did the wrong thing. The intel was a failure. They're saying the failure. Was you know or i guess these implying the failures. With capitol police and their ability to process the intelligence honorees group also recommended overhauling. The capitol police the obscure entity that includes the the united states capitol police chief as well as the house and senate security officials in the architect of the capitol to make it less cumbersome during a crisis now remember the board if you remembered sons testimony He he was the former capital police. Chief went to the board to request an emergency authorization a two days before the insurrection and they denied it because irving and stinger also make that recommendation. Now these recommendations here for minority would include empowering. The capitol police chief to act unilaterally during a crisis Smart move among other recommendations. I also think that by the way the the commander of the national guard should also be able to act unilaterally. But that's just me Other recommendations expanding the capitol police's canine explosive detection program. Reestablishing horse mounted patrols requiring the presence of specially trained civil defense units every time congress is in session and equipping all uniformed officers with riot gear and less than lethal weapons establishing an unblinking monitoring system of cameras and other sensors to help slow and track emerging threats to the building. Better route planning for capital evacuations during an emergency and on our Also delved into what is likely to become a controversial subject enhanced. Background checks of all members staff and capital employees to prevent any insider threats quote requiring background checks for identification card holders and employing card readers more widely throughout the complex decrease insider threat risks and enhance the safety of all members of staff and legislative employees these recommendations come as democrats have continued to allege that some republicans may have wittingly or unwittingly aided the january sixth riots. Either by stoking then president. Donald trump's false claims that the election had been stolen or by encouraging people to march on dc amid trump's cost to stop congress from certifying his defeat a will also be recommending pushing capital screening further back from the building and adding more screening portal's throughout the complex aside from security within the capitol complex story offered initial recommendations about security for lawmakers while they're traveling or in their districts. Though current protocols provide for security for legislative leaders rank and file members often have limited or inconsistent protection at their homes in their districts and while in transit advisers recommend establishing a threat based system for providing security to non leadership members and the establishment of a member travel operations center to manage security for lawmakers while in transit district officers should also be upgraded to ensure a uniform level of monitoring and safety. So those are a apparently going to be his recommendations will let you know when the full report comes out but those are the that's the long and short of it now. The two top democrats in new york state's legislature set on sunday that sexual harassment allegations levelled against cuomo by five women. Most former aides have undermined his ability to lead and have called for his resignation. In calling for the governor to step down state. Senate majority leader andrea stewart. Cousins also cited charges that cuomo's governing style created a toxic work environment and his office under reported the coronavirus death toll among nursing home residents quote everyday. There's another account that is drawing away from the business of government. stewart cousins said in a statement quote. We need to govern without daily distractions for the good of the state and he must resign house. Assembly speaker carl hefty followed with a statement in which he said. He shares stewart. Cousin sentiment regarding the governor's ability to continue to lead the state earlier in the day the most powerful new yorker in congress senate majority leader chuck schumer called the allegations of unwanted advances and inappropriate remarks against his fellow democrat deeply troubling and said he backed the investigation launched by state attorney general letitia james and. I just really want to address really quick. The concerns i've seen online from people saying this is a hit job. Just a hit job to get a trump ally to replace cuomo in pardon trump for his new york state crimes that could be brought against him from the manhattan district attorney from the attorney general. Letitia james If if cuomo resigns though. He said he's not going to resign. If he resigns. Lieutenant governor the lieutenant governor takes over. She's a democrat. She would serve out the rest of his term until the two thousand twenty two gubernatorial elections in those elections I seriously doubt that anyone who would pardon trump would win a statewide new york. Gubernatorial election However there's nobody that could quickly replace cuomo. That would be a trump partner. Because lieutenant governor is going to be serving out the rest of that term if cuomo resigns though he again has said he will not so the two thousand twenty. Two election is always a concern. I mean you could always say he could lose the election next time and honestly for any future governor at some point cuomo will not be governor whether he retires or gets voted out of office. He won't be governor. And there's always i guess. A risk of somebody pardoning trump in the future sometime in the future But i seriously wouldn't have any concerns about that Particularly in the near term If charges brought against donald trump. it's going to be well before twenty twenty two and even if cuomo does lose and if the these allegations helped him lose in two thousand twenty two. I seriously doubt there. Is anyone in new york. Who would win statewide gubernatorial election. That would pardon donald trump. I'm just throwing that out there. I'm not saying isn't a hit job. This could totally be a hit job. However i i believe these women and these are really serious. Awful they're deeply troubling chuck. Schumer has said and there's an investigation ongoing so we will see what comes out of that investigation However don't i wouldn't be concerned about anyone coming into pardon trump now onto the next story here. Charges against kenneth walker stemming from last marches fatal louisville metro. Police shooting of brianna taylor have been permanently dismissed. That kenneth walker is brianna.

I wrote in anonymously early last summer and told you we had started the process for my husband to officially adopt my daughter from a previous marriage. He has been her dad almost as long as she can remember. But the actual adoption process is not a cheap one. We were finally in a place where we could change the situation but because we didn't know how long process was going to take or how difficult it was going to be. We kept secret for my daughter. Even though she's ten we should every single day about it if we told her ahead of time after many long months of waiting court documents cova delays etc. We finally got the good news from our lawyer that her adoption was finalized last month. Because we don't have any family here in texas. We decided to surprise her and make a memory. we would never forget. We hired our family. Photographer told the kids we were doing family. Pictures and met her at the park should few pictures of the kids. And then we change into matching tee shirts saying it's official team our last name. It wasn't until i pulled out a letter board. That said i'm adopted that she really understood what was actually happening. Her reaction was absolutely worth almost year of keeping a secret. Now we have some wonderful new family photos.

Week In The News: Death Of George Floyd, Minneapolis Protests, Coronavirus Death Toll

"From NPR WVU ARE BOSTON. I'm Jane Clayson and this is on. Point demonstrations and violence in Minneapolis after a black man. George Floyd is killed by quite police also yesterday. President trump unveiled an executive order taking aim at social media companies which he says are policing speech. Currently social media giants like twitter receive an unprecedented liability shield based on the near the. They're a neutral platform which they're not and the devastating milestone this week. One hundred thousand Americans have died of Corona virus your CBS News correspondent David Begnaud yesterday. A hundred thousand people dead. If when the lockdown started around this country you would have said to some one one hundred thousand people might die in four months. It would have been shocked. Nobody would have believed but that is our reality today. It's our weekly news. Roundtable with us from Washington is Kimberly Atkins Senior. News correspondent for WB. You are Kim great to have you with US hygiene although a south what with us from Washington is Anita Kumar White House correspondent and associate editor for politico? Anita welcome back to you. Thanks for having me back. And Eugene Scott also with US political reporter for the Washington Post Eugene great to have you as well thank for having me so we passed a grim milestone in the pandemic this week. One hundred thousand Americans dead in the United States. We'll get to all the coronavirus news and just a few minutes but first a major American city. Erupting right now. Let's begin in Minneapolis with the death of George Floyd this week and the protests that have followed Floyd who was black of course died after being handcuffed and pinned to the ground by white police officer. Whose name was on Floyd's neck for several minutes. Eugene Scott of third night of violence describe for us what happened overnight in Minneapolis. What we saw overnight in Minneapolis where demonstrators are responding to Issues at police violence that they have been ignored Their political leaders and even their business leaders and these uprisings are not significantly different from how we have seen Protesters across the world throughout history respond. When they're seeking the attention of people in power. They know history has proven that Disrupting a capitalist structure. It's Tracks attention from People in positions of influence in ways that the murder or killing should I say Unarmed and non violent people not and so We've seen lawmakers respond to that even as far up to the White House on and now the response to the killing up George. Void seems to be moving in a different direction. Let me play the sound first before we talk about the many issues associated with this Here is the sound. It's the disturbing footage of George fluids arrest taken by a bystander on Monday. The video shows a white police officer with his knee on George. Floyd's neck a warning to listeners. This is graphic and hard to hear added that in Matinee Prima Facie kill. What do you want to read the video? It's just horrific. George Floyd can be heard pleading. I can't breathe. I can't breathe over and over again and bystanders pleading for him to get off. What strikes you about this video and what's happening right now in Minneapolis. Anita well I guess what we're hearing so much from. Is You know so many people watch this video saw this video. It's been everywhere and you know protesters and people are saying. Why hasn't there been an arrest Why hasn't the city the Police Department taken action? And of course these four officers that are involved were relieved of their duties. They're not working but there haven't been the arrests and and people are waiting for that and so you know. We saw some comments yesterday from the police. Chief saying we're still or the you know the prosecutors were still looking at this case. We're still looking at that evidence What other evidence there is and then there was sort of a quick walk back will. There's not other evidence but we're still taking a look at the case and I think the frustrating part for people there that are protesting is what is taking so long. You have video and we've seen this over and over again across the country when you have video but there's this delay in in what's happening here and there's a delay in an arrest if there's going to be one. Kimberly Akins worthy officers wearing body cam videos and if snow if so. Why aren't they being released? Where are they in this moment of public outrage? Yes so this week. We did see the release of some redacted bodycam video from the arrest of George Floyd which showed some not all of the situation leading up to His his tragic death there on the street But it did not shed any certainly. Didn't shed any exculpatory light on the situation that happened. It was still the same sort of seen From a different From different vantage point which essentially Confirmed what George Floyd's attorneys and family had said from the beginning that there did not appear to be any resist Resisting of the police officers which seems to make the case. All the more clear there are also other Civilian VIDEO. That was released from different angles. That basically just paint a deeper picture of what we already saw and I think that is adding to the frustration here That there has been no arrest. Look at after countless Unfortunately countless cases of unarmed black people dying at the hands of police in recent years the the vast majority of those not ending In arrest or or a conviction That is part of the frustration of all of. This is that the the system does not seem to be working for people who black people who die in the same way that it works for others. Sort of compounded. When this morning we many of us watched on live television. Why while a black CNN reporter was arrested a while doing his job. Omar Jimenez So arrest can happen clearly in Minnesota but not when on tape right office slight reporter from San was also on this was not arrested away right away And he was able to continue to reporting so all of this is adding to the frustration. It is at it it compounds. The frustrations of the protesters. I think it's also important to say yes. Fires were lit including The police precinct that was burned down. But when you watched the protests happening there was a lot of pain. There are a lot of people in the streets who are expressing their pain their frustration and who were doing so peacefully And so I think we have to be very careful about how we contextualized that and be very careful about what the response is going to be particularly the president given that he tweeted Basically what seemed to be a suggestion? That police should shoot protesters last night. And we'll get to that in a minute. Let me play I this clip. This is the Minneapolis mayor. Jacob FRY after George. Floyd's death talking about this notion that this was not a split-second decision by these police officers. What happened on this on that street here? Is Mary Fry? There's somewhere around three hundred seconds in those five minutes. Every one of which the officer could have turned back every second of which he could have removed his knee from. George Floyd's neck Eugene Scott he could have and what's striking is somebody bystanders. Were pleading for the officer to remove his need before you see the limp body of George Floyd You removed The prosecutors have said they have not decided whether to charge the officer or the officers In this incident talk about that more. Why not why will this officer? Derek Chevy go to this point go free the man who was kneeling on George. Floyd's neck well It is believed that police unions have protections in place that allow law enforcement officers to used this type of force that's unjustified their response That would allow them to escape prosecution And that is the frustration. That many people Particularly Black people have with this Situation that they do not feel protected. from law enforcement and feel like there's no way for justice actually to be a served and when this community Police officers can use fears or concerns About their own safety As an excuse for Violent behavior that ultimately can lead to the end of someone's life other protests in Memphis in Los Angeles and Phoenix the state capital in Denver. Colorado was put on lockdown after someone fired a gun near the peaceful demonstrations There with regard to George Floyd Columbus Ohio. I mean all over. Anita what is the Justice Department saying about a federal investigation into George Floyd staff while they are looking at it in a White House in the department. Justice had said that they were going to have an investigation. I think we're seeing local state and federal investigators into this. But you know they're all sort of saying that this takes time and that they will have to look at the evidence talk to people and do more than a lot of other people are doing which is watching this video and and wanting something right away so you know we will see those things but you know it's it's really at this point a question of how quickly that will come and how much people will stay out there in the press protesting until they see something. See some results. Let me play this clip. This George Floyd's brother Felonious Floyd speaking about brother to CNN. Yesterday I'm Sarah we just. We need justice. Though for also be arrested they executed my brother in broad daylight people. Have the feeling bad people had to see that? People pleaded for his life cans. I know they were out. There is nobody does there. The winter's Day Eugene Scott. It's it's just so painful to hear Before we go to break here in our last twenty seconds put this into perspective. What goes through your mind when you hear the the brother of George Floyd there you know. I was actually having a conversation with the police officer this morning. questioning Why lack confidence that justice would be served and there were two things one would be the fact that we have seen so many law enforcement officers. Go free despite video evidence I'm Bob into killing of unarmed people. But more DP said this brothers point is we need to rethink our ideas of justice officer if convicted even if it's a multi million dollar settlement. Where's the he said were most important or he wouldn't have get hit rather and that is of greatest concern. We are talking about the week's top stories this hour when we come back more from.

This is on point. I'm Jane Clayson. We're diving into the week's news with a terrific panel of guests this hour Kimberly Atkins senior news correspondent for. Wb You are Eugene Scott Political reporter for the Washington Post and Anita Kumar White House correspondent and associate editor for politico Back to Minneapolis. Four moment the state capital in Saint. Paul Minnesota was evacuated yesterday afternoon. As a precaution the National Guard has been called up there We had this question from Joe in Olympia Washington Left us a voicemail. Asking a question about the media coverage of this story regarding George Floyd. My question is what? Their reluctance is from Report like headlines. And News sources like saying he was killed. 'cause LIKE WHEN. I see any of the videos or pictures of what's happened like it doesn't look like a death and I'm not trying to be inflammatory but it's just like I see headlines and it's just death at the hands or fatal incident and they're very few that are reporting it as a killing Kimberly Atkins respond to our listener. Joe Well I think that that kind of context is important. I mean I think I can speak for myself that I referred to it. As a clear. Killing we saw on video someone being excavated by the knee of a police officer. There's really no other way to describe it. The question now that remains is what prosecutors what decisions prosecutors will make going forward as to what comes next. I think that that is important. In this context that we do describe what we know The facts that we know very clearly there are going to be a lot of other issues that a reporters will have to weigh clearly. Whatever the decision of prosecutors is and when it comes. We're going to have to describe that and and help our audience understand that as well. It's very important I know prosecutors said they want to move carefully. Some have cited the case of Freddie Gray in Baltimore a saying that it was a rush to make to to file charges and make arrests alternately. Do in that case made it impossible to convict the officers in that case. And they don't want to do that. They want to have the strongest case. They can moving forward. But you have this other competing interests of people wanting action now So I think throughout the entirety of the story telling it like it is crucially important for reporters to do Eugene. Scott Kim mentioned Freddie Gray. And I'm thinking of Eric Garner the I can't breathe phrase so reminiscent of of that story in two thousand fourteen after police Put put Garner in a chokehold. He died You know this is another moment in our country and other death. Another cycle of of injustice. That's how many people see questions about this perennial issue of of of police brutality. Eugene Eugene are you there we lost you for minute Anita Kumar. Could you answer that sir? you know. I think that's why we're seeing so much. There's probably so many reasons we're seeing so much this week. So many of these protests across the country but it really does resonate. It's not a one time thing. The circumstance of every single one of these cases is different. But they're these huge You similarities and it's it's because of that that people all over the country can feel that they can sympathize and empathize and understand what's going on because a lot of them have seen it in their own communities and so that's why you're seeing these other protests crop up and so I think that Emblematic of what's going on in this country. Today it's not a one time issue a one time deal and it comes on the heels of another incident in New York this week. A white woman calling the police on a black man who asked her to leash her dog in Central Park Another racially charged Moment Kim Atkins. What Katcher attention on this story? Yes Oh that To leads to this sort of cumulative effect I talked about before about the impact. This is having on communities including places where we're seeing protests. We saw a Christian Cooper who a bird watcher Ask a a white woman Amy Cooper to put her dog on a leash and she threatened to call the police and tell them that a black man was threatening her and what. I am a lot of other people recall from this statement. Are things like Emmett till she basically threatened to do the very thing that led to Emmett. Till's death she was in central park. Where the Central Park? Five few recall were a five men of color. Were wrongfully convicted of foreign attack on a white woman it conjures up an entire history Worth of weapon history worth of weaponization of the threat of a black man And so while I saw a lot of commentary this week suggested this was being overblown and this woman was simply having a bad day. It can't be read that way because you know whether it's the image of Floyd in the street whether it's the thought of being wrongfully convicted like the central park five or being at having a police encounter that could end in your death. Black people think of themselves their sons their fathers brothers every time they see an instance like this and it conjures up. Fear conjures up trauma. And that's why this I think is very rightfully a part of the conversation that we're having about race and police Today certainly Let me play this clip Christian Cooper The man Here Harvard graduate A bird watching enthusiasts video the incident as it was happening to him told CNN on Tuesday that he believes. Amy Cooper no relation That Amy Cooper's apology is sincere toward him but he doubts that she grasped the full weight of her actions. Particular Act was racist and the backpack. That was her recourse at that moment. Granted it was a stressful situation situation. you know maybe a moment spectacularly poor judgment but she went there and had this resist act not did. Eugene Scott The woman Amy Cooper fired from her job at an investment firm Hashtags bird-watching while black have been trending Just a couple of weeks ago of course running while black another Hashtag. That's that was Catching fire after the shooting of a Marbury Your thoughts Before we move on here I think one of the most important pieces of this conversation is that very often when you have these type of interactions between white people and black individuals and they reached the political space. There's a desire to associate these white individuals with and president trump and more conservative communities because perception is that these communities have lower view of diversity but we found out that amy cooper was a donor to people adjust to Obama and identifies as liberal enlists in the north. And so this has done is expand this conversation to help us realize and recognize that White. Supremacy does not have any partisan monopoly or geographical home. It's all over the place. Let's move on to An extraordinary Incident this week twitter fact checking or posting fact checking notice on the president of the United States in a tweet on Tuesday. President trump tweeted incorrectly about voter fraud and yesterday in response the President signed an executive order. Kim What did that order say? Yes so the executive order in Layman's terms would seek to remove the protections that twitter and other social media platforms would have against liability over what is published on their site What president trump is trying to do is make it easier to regulate Social media companies because he claims that they are biased against conservatives There are a number of legal hurdles to his ability to actually do this the the first amendment being the largest But also the the fact that the White House cannot force independent agencies like the Federal Communications Commission to act in a way that it could be cabinet agencies of the White House so this is probably a pretty MT threat But it's a political message to his supporters He likes to craft these. These divides these these wars cultural wars And pit what he sees as political enemies against his supporters. Or in this case it will be conservatives against social media But you know it it. It is and it's right in line to what the president does whether it's With fomenting divisions when it comes to things like NFL protests are the words that he said after Charlottesville whether it's Battling the media Sometimes in real time during press conferences. It's the kind of fight political fight. He likes to wage even if he doesn't have the law on his side and Nita Kumar The President Calls Twitter's fact checking notice censorship In this executive order is Kim said that he has signed would would limit the broadly Qabail legal protections that the federal law currently provides to social media platforms. It's interesting though as I read about this. Couldn't this punishment that the president is threatening force social media companies to crack down even more on on customers just like Mr Trump? Well it could but I'm not sure they're going to go that way. I think that they're all trying to figure out what their responses and. I'm pretty sure that we're GONNA see a lawsuit Pretty soon here by one of these companies or another company because it really could stem we. We think about facebook and twitter but it could really go further and it really does go further than that. I'm you know I agree with him. I just don't know how far it's going to go because there are so many hurdles There is going to be a court challenge. They he is asking Independent agencies to get involved and he's also asking State Attorney General's to get involved and And and way in and I'm not sure that they wanna do that either. I mean the critics of the president say this is something. It's a personal vendetta. He he's talking about his own personal issues his own political issues why the federal government be used On his own political vendettas. And it's something that has been said the last three years when we've seen him try to act in other ways when something personally affected him so but he's exactly right. We are going to hear about this for the next five or six months on the campaign trail He is going to talk about it as much as he talks about his fights against the media his supporters. Really like this. This is something that we've been expecting for really three years. They've been talking about it. Remember last summer he had that Event at the White House that was a political event but it was really to talk about bias against conservatives on on on these social media platforms. So it's been it's been coming for Awhile Kim Atkins back quickly to Minneapolis in president. Trump's tweets you mentioned them in in the first segment With regard to George Floyd he originally called George Floyd's death shocking But has now called protesters thugs and said when the looting starts. The shooting starts twitter flag. That tweet today. The White House then tweeted the president's tweet word for word it was an extraordinary back and forth Today Kim what did you see in that? Yes so again If you if you look at this the first thing I did this morning was go. Back in the archives and look at All the instances in which the president use the terminology of the use. The word thug in particular And also seemed to call for or condone violence in some way and it goes back to the twenty sixteen campaign where there were protesters where He said he would pay the legal fees to to those who physically attacked protesters He's called. He's called protesters In various cities who are protesting. Police brutality thugs. It's shocking to see and it certainly a three sixty from the comments. He made in the White House but again it comes straight from his playbook. This is a president who when he received the nomination that the the Republican National Convention that nominated him to be The presidential nominee in two thousand sixteen chance of blue lives matter would break out. It's yet another cultural war that he sees no problem throwing fuel on a because he sees that as politically advantageous. So it didn't me at all But it is still distressing to see that the president of the United States seems to be Calling for violence against a group of People. Well moving on here. America passed a grim marker this week one hundred thousand people in this country dead from Corona Virus Weeks ago the president insisted the death toll would fall quote substantially well below the one hundred thousand mark and yet here. We are Eugene Scott. How did the President Mark this solemn occasion? This week I will. The president did not And there was quite a bit of attention being paid to that That these lives being lost that were lost And according to studies in part because of a slow response or reaction from this administration when information was available about this upcoming pandemic Just grab headlines And was noted by quite a few folks The best response one could say The president had to this moment was a defensive one. He took the social media to appraises administration and his team for their response to the coronavirus pandemic and believes that it has been Pretty exceptional But the the number the quantity the weight of the lives lost Lead many people especially his critics to view this matter differently We got unemployment numbers Again this week and another two point. One million new unemployment claims were filed last week in the United States. Anita Kumar that means forty. One million people have applied for AIDS. Since the outbreak began in March Companies STILL SLASHING JOBS. Anita even as businesses are starting to reopen. Actually rehiring some of those laid-off Employees Anita. What did you see in these numbers this week? Yeah I mean I think we as as huge an extraordinary as they are thinks p people had predicted. It's why you're seeing the president and others really pushed for the reopening. They WanNa get things back as soon as possible They want this to be over as quickly as possible. Even though we've seen states reopening where they haven't met the guidelines or when they were when they first started reopened they hadn't met the federal guidelines to reopen. But they were going ahead and doing it anyway. And I think there's you know we're having this health crisis but at the same time in economic crisis and there's so many people now including the president of the United States that has really turned their attention to the economic one. How can we get out of this as soon as possible and restore that and and we can't look at what the president's doing without looking at his campaign for reelection which is an only a few months and this is the economy is what he was planning on running on the strongest economy as he likes to say we? We did at once and now he's he's arguing he can do it again. He wants to return that economy. And what a second term more Americans have died of Corona virus in twelve than died in Vietnam and in the Korean War is combined on Sunday. President Trump tweeted that quote cases numbers and deaths are going down all over the country cannot come Atkins. Actually total number of cases naturally have begun to decline But hospitalizations outside New York New Jersey and Connecticut has actually increased in recent days. What are you hearing in the president's comments yes and there's you know it depends on where you are but there are places such as in Alabama where I see you. Beds are in short supply The there is still a the the medical crisis of this is still very high but the president is looking for good news as he has throughout this. And see this number as something to be touted while you know just like the economic numbers the the medical numbers. Don't paint such a clear picture. Kimberly Atkins Eugene Scott. Anita Kumar stick with me. We are discussing the week in the news up next. We'll talk about Congress. They're back and proxy voting will also look at the space mission.

What conversations are you having around these incidents in your household or community? Tell us your story. Six one seven three five three zero six eight three well today. Were reviewing the week's news with a roundtable of top reporters joined by Kimberly Atkins Senior News correspondent for wbz. Eugene Scott Political reporter for the Washington Post and Anita Kumar White House correspondent in Societa editor for politico. Well Congress Fundamentally changed how it operates this week. Lawmakers cast their first ever proxy votes on the House floor yesterday marking historical and controversial moment for the chamber. Eugene Scott what's the significance of this moment historic really? Well one of the most significant parts of this is that it could change how Congress operates in the future. historically We have one at all or makers to be present required. them to be present to vote. you through wars through natural disasters And to see this approach pivot during pandemic Is raising a lot of criticism specifically from Voters on the right and fear that this could change. How just Americans vote overall well Right and this has turned into a partisan flashpoint Democrats say proxy voting is the only way to keep members safe. Republicans say it's constitutional. They've already filed a lawsuit challenging The voting method here This is House minority leader. Kevin McCarthy of California on Wednesday saying that Republicans would stand in the way of proxy voting in the House for more than two hundred and thirty one years. Never have we seen a proxy vote on the floor of the House. This challenges the constitution only to protect and empower speaker. It violates the constitution is a dereliction of duty by its members. Dereliction of duty Kimberly Atkins. What was the response up there? This week well Democrats including congressman. Jim McGovern is true chairs. The the House Rules Committee and who crafted this rule After an effort at a bipartisan effort to come up with a solution of legislating during the coronavirus at a time when DC is still shut down which is an important point He said that this was an effort to try to Keep the government going to protect people. There are a lot of lawmakers most of those who did vote by proxy or from California There are a lot of people who just physically found it. Difficult to get back to DC in time to take these votes and that they were trying to move ahead so that the business of the Congress could go forward But Republicans are claiming that this is a power grab essentially by Democrats who want to Phone it in the words of Congressman McCarthy so we see a bitter partisan divide in not only what congress is doing but how they do it. Bitter divide also this week Kim Atkins with the Pfizer Bill What happened there? Yeah so one of the things that we thought might get this New PROXY STYLE. Vote is the bill to reauthorize. Faisal. Which is the the the the bill that allows a first surveillance of foreign individuals in his come into a a lot of scrutiny lately. A particularly by the president who has been very angry at the the way that the Russia investigation began and who has claimed that his former campaign need Carter page was Illegally surveilled Which was a part of that? Generally speaking the Republicans were very much in favor of passing the reauthorization of but once the president tweeted that he was against it. Republicans largely suddenly fell in line And voice their opposition to which caused a house speaker. Nancy Pelosi to pull the bill from a vote when it became really clear that If it did pass which was a still unknown that the president would likely veto in speaking of Congress. Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell made extensive pitch this week For Americans to put on face masks McConnell said quote. There's no stigma to wearing a mask. And he spoke directly younger Americans when he said you have an obligation to others This was in direct contrast Nita Kumar to president trump. Who MOCKED JOE BIDEN? This week for wearing a mask in public. What did you see their Anita that everything has become a political issue You know just the Joe Biden Donald Trump back and forth. It really has become a political issue. You know we've seen the president starting to get out you know each week. He's now going on trips. We haven't really seen him in a face mask. He's worn one just really briefly But we haven't seen him out and about doing that. We see him at the White House. Being close quarters not six feet with some his staff and not wearing a face mask. And you you have Joe Biden. Basically saying calling him a fool saying that you know. This shouldn't be partisan he should be doing this. But this is what we've seen with the president over and over that he's not actually following the guidance of his own employees of the federal government. And so we've seen that sort of back and forth so senator. Mcconnell's statement was quite striking because it's not a republican democratic thing if the Republican leaders saying that. Here's the clip you made reference to in the president trump Re tweeted a photo of Joe Biden on Monday. Mocking him for wearing a mask to Memorial Day Services. And here's Biden responding to an interview on CNN on Tuesday. He's a fool fool to talk that way. I mean every leading dock and the world saying we should wear a mask when you're in a crowd and especially when you know you're going to be in a position where you're gonNA inadvertently get closer than twelve feet to somebody. Eugene Scott I mean the name calling the mocking the back and forth your thoughts. Well I think one thing that's really interesting about the facemask. Conversation is between Biden and trump is what it communicates to a certain demographic of voters. We know that President trump was successful in part because he campaigned on being a tough man. I'm a married man and for him. A face mask Looks and that's not what he wants to communicate to his base. But I think what Biden is trying to reaching some of those same voters. The thing that there's nothing week or unmanly about protecting yourself and the community and your neighbors and so there's A. There's not just a message thing happening but it's a very different conflicting idea of what it means to be an American and to be a strong leader in America and Catkins a real back and forth this week as well between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. About what plans should be happening during the pandemic and what leadership looks like right? Now what did you hear in that? Kim Yes I think. That's definitely That's definitely true. Look you have a former vice president biden who is trying to campaign himself during a pandemic He's at a disadvantage in that Donald. Trump has the presidency in the platform thereof to keep his profile high during this and he's been trying to find a way to message and we've Increasingly seen him do that he. He's speaking today about the was happening. in in Minneapolis. You're seeing him more and more sort of take that. Make try to make this contrast not just on policy but in in in principle against The president and so I think we will see more of this particularly as the president tries to continue to against divisions over things including masks We will have to see the ways that Joe Biden is able to respond sticking with the twenty twenty presidential race for a moment. Eugene Scott. You've been reporting this week on how the George Floyd Story in. Minneapolis might impact the twenty twenty presidential election. Give give us your reporting. Give us your sense well. Initially we saw both candidates. Joe Biden President Trump Speak out about how unjust and unfair West Virginia Florida USA life. The way he did but we also saw them. Praise Minneapolis police for responding very quickly To the four individuals who were Are Now suspected of being responsible for his debt. And I think it's really important in that response Is that we know that both of these leaders really do not have any desire perhaps cannot afford to come off anti police. They both are appealing to voters. Who are very law and order and In their worldview who really WANNA leader who is tough on crime And many of those voters conflict in your vision of America should be them voters who are really concerned about police violence against Black people in America and so watching these candidates try to figure out a way to went abroad swath of voters without offending other voters It's been quite interesting. I needed Kumar. You've been reporting on this as well. Yeah I mean it's it's just a what we're seeing now with the campaign is like some nothing we've ever seen right. I mean really. President trump has got a all the attention right now because of the coronavirus may think the coming months are going to be really important to see how this campaign shakes out. Are we going to still be talking about coronavirus in a few months I I sense? Yes but the question is going to be all it is if it's about coronavirus and the federal response to that The Democrats and Joe Biden. Feel very comfortable with that. They feel like he has not done a good job They did not take it seriously enough. In the beginning there weren't enough test. There weren't enough medical supplies but as the campaign gets really going. This general election gets going in these coming months. Is it going to break out and be about other things like Eugene just said or is it going to be about other issues and we don't really know because we don't know how coronavirus is really going to Continue we lost you there. Anita Lemme move briefly because our time is short. I wanted to get this important announcement this week. From Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who said that the US Department no longer considered Hong Kong to have significant on Tommy under Chinese rule which indicates that the trump will likely end some or all of us government special trade and economic relations with Hong Kong. This was such an interesting development During a time when you know relations are Are Sketchy at best between the US? And China what did you see here Kim? Yeah it's very complex. I mean on the one hand. The reason that Secretary of State Pompeo said this is because of China's Treatment and refusal to acknowledge the serenity of the serenity of Hong Kong Which has caused the State Department to to acknowledge that? But at the same time you also have the president who has been in one form or another waging a trade war with China one that he seems to relish and one that he intends to Seems to intend to Continue this could lead to sanctions against China. And all of these things will have not only political ramifications but it will have effects on the market which the markets in in recent weeks have begun to recover from the impact of the corona virus and There are a lot of fear that this will send them going downward again so all of this is a really a complex of geopolitical and economic factors that could just add more torque turmoil to the economy and in the middle of a presidential election year. Kim. Thanks for that Regarding Hong Kong Let's wrap up here with a big announcement Cape Canaveral on Wednesday but it was not the announcement we were expecting. Nash officials made a different Call than they'd planned for the space x rocket launch. Here it is. We're not going to launch. Today you are for five one zero zero long scrip dot one there. It was a good effort by the teams. And we understand. And we'll meet you there The nation's T trail-blazing return to human spaceflight from American soil will have to wait. Eugene Scott the weather did not cooperate it absolutely did not and we know that This is something that the administration is looking to two point two as a win An advancement and technology and competition with other countries throughout throughout the world in the areas of science and exploration. And this week just will not give America or the White House. The wind that the president was hoping it would But this obviously something that we don't expect The president and His officials sincere against tobacco away from and we'll keep their eye on In terms of focusing on in the future well Spacex is a company founded by billionaire. Elon Musk. This is a new era of private sector transport to space. Anita Kumar This big moment. What's the significance of this? I mean it's really something that the United States hasn't done before and has talked about for a long time having the a private company so NASA astronauts get on a private companies Shit basically and you know there are a lot of companies that have talked for years about not just this. What's happening. Now where NASA astronauts are on there. But Hey could this be the beginning of a commercial spaceflight for others out there one day you know and so you are seeing that president trump in prison. Trump is expected to go back. They're trying this take two. They're trying this again The vice president's expected to go back. They are really have a lot invested in this. They want this to be part of the trump legacy the trump administration legacy that. They're moving the United States in this direction. Well as our time comes to Completion here. I'd like each of you to look forward for us. Open your reporter's notebooks What are you keeping an eye on this week? A quick hit from each of you. Round Robin Eugene Scott will start with you very much focused on what the administration is. The pressure increases On responding to be the death of George Lloyd how the issue of Police Violence Black people goes beyond this Anita Kumar. I am focused on the trump administration looking at punishing China. They should be talking about that here pretty soon and specifically looking at whether they will not allow Chinese students here on visas or what other ways they're going to be looking at punishing China for what they're saying is starting the coronavirus and not not stopping it from spreading Kimberly Atkins about a minute left for you well. The Supreme Court is set to issue its biggest decisions of the term moving ahead including the fate of Dhaka of the policy that president trump rescinded and also cases dealing with abortion rights. So they're going to be a lot of blockbuster decisions coming out of the Supreme Court again in the middle of an election year and they may also decide to take up a second amendment issue on guns That will be decided next term so a lot of hot button issues there and in Minneapolis. What are you seeing there? Kim In Minneapolis. Look I think I agree with Anita and And Eugene we have to watch the way particularly the White House response to this. I definitely will be doing that A and moving forward. It's going to be an appetite to politicize this In a lot of ways when a lot of people really are looking to see justice here we will be watching Great reporting from our panel.

Apparently a lot of the coins are up today which is really great news for people who've been holding onto those and The biggest news to me isn't whatever the hell is going on in washington dc with some politicians. I don't care what i do care about is people refusing to obey dump politicians and thugs thugs from the health inspectors department thugs from the sheriff's department. And that's what happened in the buffalo new york area recently where some jim numbers because there was at least half a dozen people that were shouting these cops out of the building so i mean they weren't all owners of the gym right like there were some people there that were just. They're working out and they they said get outta here. We don't want really warmed my heart to see that we don't want your service go away. You're not serving us.

We'll put sam back on whole maybe. There are some technical difficulties there. Meanwhile let's try. Robert bellows falls vermont robert. You're on free talk. Live within the captain agrees guys. Hey robert just one of the to quickly right astra question. Because i was listening to some of the callers to call in and that's kind of important to be and i wanna share with them but the next time that they get a chance to go to the national registry of exonerations and you'll find out exactly how government is stealing money from us and then also go to youtube and typing dorothy rabinowitz biography. And i don't show people how they're getting all of this buddy. I know how they're getting money. They threaten people with violence and they get him to do what they want right but the but the door but the video will show. It'll show how all of this has done this for those. That don't know who. Dorothy rabinowitz says. She's a A investigative reporter for the wall street journal she's a pulitzer prize winning investigative journalist. But but i wanted to get. I heard some of the folks saying you guys were talking about the virus and stuff like that and you know i. I'm thinking that we're all immune to this I mean. I mean if you've ever schram and river like i remember back in. My house is a river in keene. all over the place and it within those references kinds of chemicals. You know your feces and we swimming all of that. I mean george carlin okay when he lived in brooklyn as a kid you swimming did you drink water straight out of the host. I know my my point. Is i need all of those people survive. Why wouldn't our system immune to there's faris. I wouldn't go so far as to claim that everyone is immune to the virus. I mean obviously there are people out there who have gotten sick and there are some people who have have passed away but the super majority of people survived this thing and i mean the super super majority of them and your point is well taken. Robert net is the idea that the human body is as fragile as it can be also relatively resilient given all the dangerous deadly things that get thrown at it on a relatively regular basis the immune systems a pretty amazing thing and not protecting yourself from every little thing that can go wrong is actually some people would argue is actually a good thing you know allowing your immune system to actually work and to fight things off keeps you strong. Essentially that which doesn't kill you makes you stronger. They say thank you robert for the call tonight. I appreciate it to robert's point about immunity and that kinda thing. I find it very disturbing that. Not one politician has mentioned anything about how to fortify your immune system how to take in the appropriate amount of nutrients and what kind of a thing like all of a sudden for whatever reason people think the government is your doctor to right. They're giving you all this medical advice right false founder. Whatever the hell his name is right given all this medical advice but when did the government become responsible for your health and well being. I understand why everybody just goes all suddenly the governments responsible for my hell. No they aren't. You're responsible for your own health. Yes i don't know captain because it just seemed to come out of nowhere people's response this to all of this was a real took me by surprise. I mean i know people are obedient but looking back on it. It started with the mass shootings read the mass. Shootings is what sort of gave rise to these lockdowns. Right or the idea that people would accept them. Whenever there was a mass shooting the city or town that had happened in locked in go into lockdown and people started getting desensitized to the word lockdown. That's my experience anyway is telling you this is what i saw through my eyes. And then all of a sudden when this supposed- health threat of this virus came to town all the sudden. Everybody was in lockdown. Oh lockdown right like they've been that lockdowns institutionalized exactly where propagandized or Insert your word here for the brainwashing. But that's essentially what happened. Yeah and ultimately comes back to what's been going on for many decades generations which is acclimating people to the idea of not just a lockdown. But the idea. That authority is a thing. That authority is something that you should believe in that. These people with their fancy suits and their fancy hats in their fancy cars or whatever it is know all their accoutrements and their associates. And the cops that you know because they are in these positions which. I didn't choose to put them in by the way But because they're in these positions somebody voted somewhere and all of a sudden. These are our betters that these people somehow should be respected or look to even though at the same time people carry sort of conflicting beliefs about politicians. And i saw this inaction today and in concord. I was i'd mentioned in the beginning of the show but i went to one of these stop the steel rallies stop as in a stop. Steel as in stealing the election as in biden stole the election. And the trumpster are trying to get it back. That's what they think is trump pansies my bed and so you can see an example of this sort of dual mindset or this conflicting set of beliefs that people have where on one hand people do believe that politicians are dishonest. Like most people would would readily agreed to their politician. They like that. I think is definitely a hole in that particular beliefs but you know even even they know they still know at some level. That politicians are dishonest. They do know that. And when i got up on stage and i spoke today spoke about new hampshire. Declaring independence from the united states. And i did not get booed off the stage and i made a point that look. I'm going to say some things here. That are not what you're looking to hear from me. I'm not up here to candy coat. Anything or make you think that i'm totally on your side or whatever. The truth hurts people. Yeah and it's like okay. Well even if you guys quote stop the steel and trump is elected again right like that's what they want. They want the courts to make the decision that all these voting results are bunk and that it was actually trump that one in pennsylvania or one in georgia or wherever it is doing challenge and and so e- even if it comes true their belief that trump is the true victor. Then you're not going to stop the stealing. because government continues to steal from people. They couldn't deny the government is evil. Couldn't deny that government is stealing from people. That's what it does and that it wouldn't matter whether it's trump or whether it's bush or whether it's barack or whoever happens to be in the presidency even if trump wanted to stop these things he doesn't he couldn't right. Okay so get real. Nothing is going to to change in dc.

Tom good evening. It's about the difficulty of heard that Police departments are finding it more and more difficult to recruit new goon to go out there and intimidate everybody into obeying unjust laws. Yes they are and they've been having a difficult time for the last. I would say several years. It's probably worse now than it's ever been but yeah that's true now see. There's a growing awareness. People are rejecting the app thirty. That it's only a few bad apples due to growing awareness. That they all chose to enlist in the police forces of a hostile government and organized force on a mission to a essentially to levy war against the human race a mission to intimidate people they say to deter people from breaking the lawn intimidate them into complying with a multitude of blatantly unjust law so they are all enemy officers for that growing public. Awareness is because you've got. These guys libertarian. Guys in keene new hampshire that one this talk show and syndicated all across the country. They're asking help. Bring up this public awareness. That cops are the goons there. They are essentially mercenaries employed by the state and that the employment contract between government and his goons cannot entitle the ladder to violate the unalienable rights of non-signatory third parties and one of the ways one of the reasons that this show is so successful. As you've got this guy in hudson new hampshire to keeps calling up and the help educate the public about just how evil and wicked the cops mass. We couldn't have done it without you. Tom thank you for the call. Toll free number here tonight. Eight fifty five four fifty free. That's eight five five. Four five zero three seven three and that's another to go back to that issue with the authoritarian beliefs. That people have on one hand. They think the politicians are bad people but yet they still keep believing in them for whatever reason they think. Oh well the other politicians are worse than we gotta go with our politics voters syndrome. This time it'll be different right. That's totally what it is. And the example of this is the way these right wing folks treat the police so on one hand they are acknowledging that it is the police who are going around enforcing these mask mandates that they disagree with right so they're they're very against the masks at the protests that i today wasn't it wasn't per se an anti mask event you but there was a lot of anti mass talk that that went on right and i'm on board with that right. I do not wear a mask on interested wearing a mask not going to do what these goons tell me to do. But yet they still support the police so they have on one hand the belief that and the understanding that the police are the ones that are essentially the tip of the spear they're the ones that are enforcing the governor's mask mandates and things like that and and they're threatening local business owners. Now have businesses here. New hampshire have received five hundred dollars fines within the last couple of weeks from the attorney. General's office so they know that it's the police that are going around doing this. But yet they still. I had one lady that i was speaking with today. Just after the sort of the rally was over people talk afterwards forbid and she was talking about how the cops in this town or patriots and so therefore We shouldn't expect any trouble if Knew the governor goes to that town. Well i won't say why we were talking about this but There's gonna be a protest at the governor's house tomorrow. And they're sort of contingency plans in case he goes elsewhere so the one of the towns. He's he might be retreating to if he's not at his house tomorrow. The lady was saying that well the cops there are patriots. You won't have anything to worry about from them and it's like i don't buy that. I don't think that the cops are going to just not do their job Because they're quote patriots. And what like. Leave the governor out in the cold. Their their top dog their commander basically. We'll wait you touch on something so there's the potential that he's going to run from the protest. I suspect that he won't even be there. Because i mean i ordered a truckload of tar another truckload of i sure hope it gets delivered to the right place yes so i didn't order any now but there are going to be people and should be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to it to the callers point. And i like to point this out to people who use that. I don't know what you'd call it. The adage apple. Well no you gotta use the full thing. It's one rotten. Apple that spoils the spoils the bunch that means the whole bunch is spoiled rotten so so there's this constant like conflicting belief systems that these people have. And you know it's bad. I don't know the best way to break it down except little by little. That's why i got up on stage and said the things that i said that it just to try to throw it throw something back that they can. Maybe listen to and and think about you know. I opened up my speech with. And i didn't go there intending to speak but they they came around with like a sign up. Sheet him all right sure. I'll talk about secession. I'll talk about independence. That's that's why i went to that. I didn't go there to stop the steel. I don't care i i. It doesn't matter to me who wins the election. But i went there. Because i know that these people even though they believe they wanna win right they want. They want their team to come out on top trump to win etc etc. They must know in the back of their minds. There's a chance that he won't and then if that's the case then they're going to be open to new ideas like secession. So that was the reason why i went there and i opened up by saying that. I am suing the governor. So after all this anti mask talk and talk and trash about the governor rightfully so there was a lot of that stuff pointed out. Hey i'm actually doing this guy. So i got a big round of applause for that and so that's how i started off and then i went into. Hey look this whole america thing. It's a failure. Well it's always good to plant seeds particularly when you have an audience that might be open to. What would we do now. What's next always tried everything. And it didn't work. What do we do now. That's all it was it was the idea was to plant seats and i didn't get booed so i didn't get a whole lot of applause after that but people were making icon tabby and here's a freedom tree all thanks but people were. They were making eye contact. They were paying attention. So that's important. And i think that's and by the way just to be clear i've also gone to be lmu events so i went to the blm in manchester. And i handed out the same secession flyer there that i handed out at The trump event today interesting that they left the i n. g. off of. Stop the steel. Yeah they only this particular steel together. Steel fine yeah but this particular one for some reason. Eight fifty five four fifty free like freedom.

The indictments against also in the district of maryland were dismissed with prejudice. Meaning they can never be refiled. This is especially good because those indictments contain the only charge ever made that ross engaged in murder-for-hire this was a serious allegation at roles. Outbreak denies it was never prosecuted or rolled on by a jury. Putt was trumpeted by the federal government. And the media. As if it were proven fact the maryland court held these indictments for almost five years poisoning case. Leaving him under a cloud of unproven allegations as explained in ross's appeal to the supreme court the fact that the judge used these allegations together. All say draconian sentence of life without parole violated his sixth amendment right to a jury. Trial judges are required to issue sentences based on convictions. Decided by a jury not unproven.

They released yes released today but so sometimes no sometimes artists will do this thing where they go. Hey i'm going to release a thing six months from now and you're like well it's done the yes it's completely done and ready than than now you put it out now because we're going to release it in and it gives them time to draw preparation of marketing. I'm i'm a small-time parody artist. I don't have this kind of plus. The topic is timely. I actually kinda felt a bunch of pressure to get this thing out because well it's it's now that's coming up later tonight. It's called the where the face diaper and it is a parody of the beatles. It is yeah all right. So we're going to get into that coming up here in one straight for the classics. Let's go first though to your phone calls and thoughts. John is in kansas listening to k. I n. a. and selena. Go ahead john. I was wanting to find out who is actually running puppet If you take a good. Look at joe biden. Looks a lot like walter walter. Walter who jeff dharam different ventriloquist guy right. Yeah that's the guy. He does not exactly but pretty close does thing i wanted to but out there. A lot of people bad talk police. They try them If you remember the word pag. I've heard it mentioned here lately to. What do you mean and this area is for the police to take note of. Take pride in the word. Why if you figured out it's pride integrity and guts because it takes a lot of all three for somebody to be a police officer nowadays Well i don't see a whole lot of integrity out there. I mean i see a bunch of cops. Threatening peaceful people over victimless crimes. Don't you see that to Not really. I don't think you're paying attention. When's the last time you went. You went to a district court arraignment poured arraignment sometime last on a jury. Your back. that's not the same thing being on a jury. You won't get to see district court. Juries you're not gonna see the dozens of cases that go in front of a judge every single week and even smaller towns. These are generally victimless criminals. People who've never harmed another person but they got caught with an open container of alcohol or or a little bit marijuana or teenager with a cigarette or a can of beer or something like that and it's just thousands and thousands of dollars that these people are extracting from usually the poorest of the population. Because they usually won't raid the rich people's You know college parties or whatever. They're only going after the poor people. So i mean there's no there's no end to the number of peaceful people that these people are putting behind bars and getting putting in debt to tremendous numbers of if not thousands of dollars and all of this goes unsung. Most people like you're saying john you don't even know this is happening there and now it's harder than ever to even get into a courthouse. You probably can't just go sit in and watch an online class now. Cova you care but you can't Type cell phones young yeah You can't even what happened to you there. Giambi you kinda you kinda cut off but what you sounded like you were saying was you can't bring your cell phone into court and that is true in a lot of places new hampshire. You can bring a cell phone in new hampshire. So it's one of the nice things you could. Actually you can actually get a little bit. Don if you're sitting in the courtroom They just don't want you to have the volume turned up on the cellphones. As long as you don't have the you know the ringer on and make a bunch of noise. They won't even let you have a pocket. Knife generally can't get in to courthouse knives. But i do agree. You should be able to have. What are they afraid of in court At least here in new hampshire you can actually check the knife or gun at the court the like the security checkpoint so you won't get arrested for bringing it into the court so you can check it here in new hampshire. I don't think you can do that in all states. They make you take it back out to you. Be a figures. Well hey john look. I get why people who don't really know what's going on fully with the police wanna believe the best about them. I think that there are some good people who became cops. I wouldn't say that just because you become a copier bad person. I wouldn't say that. But i will say that there are a lot of bad cops out there and very few of the good cops will do anything about him all around here then. There's a lot of good tops. Yeah i've even seen police officers that same. Somebody broke down on the side of the road in town over and help them. I have seen that happen to regular citizens do that. We don't hold regular citizens in high regard because of it. Yeah i mean look again. You can find examples of police doing good things. It is not unheard of for that to happen but if that same cop that just you know help somebody change a tire on the side of the road. Then proceeds to go and arrest peaceful people. I'm not gonna say that. That person is doing a good thing. They do that all the time john. And i'll say it again. And i've said it repeatedly i feel like i keep saying it but if the police as an organization are so tightly knit as a brotherhood and all that kind of thing and they are genuinely concerned about this sort of you know. Bad light that they've they've come from recent news and all that kind of thing they can do something about it. Here's what they can do. They can stop enforcing victimless crimes. Everybody get together and go. We're no longer enforcing victimless crimes. They will immediately look way. Better would sing the praises man. I would be on the air like my god. What has happened. This is amazing right. I mean the singer from the highest awesome. Yeah that kind of thing. I mean absolutely and you know captain. They could join law enforced. What was known. As law enforcement against prohibition it has changed names it is now law enforcement action partnerships and still leap. Just a changed what it stands for. And the reason isn't there against pro that there are now four in favour prohibition. They're also still against prohibition but they're also against police militarization these are actual some of them. Active duty cops. Most of them are retired though because they didn't want to go out on that limb while they were still collecting a paycheck. Because you know they're on the grave with trains kind of cowardly but that's just what. I'm so glad that they went in the right direction eventually. So jon thank you for the call. Feel free to call in any other time. I definitely appreciate hearing from you. There's just people have blinders on when it comes to the police. The fans of the police. They believe the fairy tale that the cops are out there. Only doing good. We'll be secure only going after the bad guys and no. That's not true. i. I'm telling you if you can go and watch district court hearing just go or get the docket and look on the district court hearing docket in your area and see if you can even get most of them won't even give it to you but you have to physically go down there and get a copy of it or something but then just look and roll through the pages and pages and pages and you tell me how many of the hundred cases or whatever they've got are actual cases violence. How many domestic abuse cases right that. Maybe that somebody was violent in that case. How many robberies. Very rare property damage or personal. You know. somebody's been rare. It's very rare. I'm telling you. I've sat in countless arraignments. I've sat through a ton of these things. I'm a Basically had a court activists to some extent for a very long time. I've recorded a lot of footage in courtrooms. And i've seen these people abusing average folks over nothing and you know what it does. It ruins people's lives. Everybody just has this false idea this belief. That's exactly what it is is a belief it's a belief without evidence that somehow having the department called policies means you're protected and no it doesn't work like that. Tell that to all the people who've called the cops and had them never show up telling their protected or telling their protective when the cops do show up and blast their dog in the face with a shotgun or go look at the innocence project. Tell me about those people right. Been in prison for twenty five minutes on false evidence yet and then finally years later dozens of years later they might have genius out. Yeah we're talking about hundreds of people. By the way that have been released after the fact vindicated. Yes thanks to the innocence breath. Some cop or some prosecutor lied about them just to put them in a prison cell. It's sick if their numbers. It's sick eight fifty five four fifty free like freedom. You can join us here on talk live.

That's eight five five four five zero three seven three three in here and the captain and want you to know about liberty dot menu. So there's this protests going on tomorrow outside of the governor's house in new hampshire first time. That's ever happened from what i can tell at least at least in the fifteen or so years that i've been here. I'm so disappointed. That i didn't build the mock guillotine. I know that's okay maybe next time. Perhaps there may be next time. They met in fact. There may be multiple times so liberty dot many. The reason i bring that up is because somebody made a facebook event for this governor protest tomorrow and his his house guess what facebook took it down. Oh did surprise. wait wait what. what side of. The coin is the governor's he democrat. He happens to be a republican. But he's pro mask. he's pro. crackdown. He's prokofiev restriction. So facebook took down the event. And i told those guys. I told them before they put up. I said you know what you ought to do. Is go to liberty dot men. You create the event on liberty menu. Then post the link to the liberty menu event on facebook and whatever other may way and parlor right yeah never other centralized systems. There are out there competing with facebook that way. If they take the post down you know if they delete your post that you make about it. They haven't deleted the event itself right. So all the key information of where and when and who's going and all that that's all still there so actually after that the facebook one got taken down they. They took my advice and one of them actually. That's awesome. They actually did go to liberty dot menu and made an event there and liberty dummies. It's run by free. Stater guy that moved here to new hampshire is part of the free state project. he lives in manchester. Great guy a great site. It's a great look inside. It's easy to use and and it's not run by the big mega corporation. Well it's it's weird. How people think that facebook is the internet well in some places. It's true in in some places like africa. Facebook is the only app or the only internet site that certain phones will can access so essentially. What's going on is facebook has or whatever to be the exclusive provider for these different phone companies or whatever what a special plan essentially where you get the cheapest plan that you can possibly get and you get internet but it's actually facebook only can't do anything else. Besides zucker big brother special. Yeah all right. Let's go back to your phone calls and thoughts but checkout liberty. it's not just for events for businesses. If you want people to let you know label know where you are what business. You're you're in. Get maybe buy your product you might be able to get some new customers out of it and it's free to use so again it's liberty dot menu. We're going to try one more time here with sam. I think he might actually be on the line with us now. Sam or are you with us. Yes we go ahead sir. Good i i have a compliment and comment but I've wanted to say I started listening to you guys. It's for your listeners. In two thousand fifteen. I got a smart speaker. I listened to you. I would about ten or twenty percent of what you were talking about. And now i'm up to seventy five percents right converted winger. Am all day listener. Just let them know what some of the stuff you don't agree you instill the The other twenty five percent we we added to about two years ago about. Who's gonna fill the potholes me. And then the guy who's going to pay for the like not up to that point but you're you're up seventy five percents. Do you miss this story. Where domino's potholes get that one. Yeah no dominoes actually went to different cities around the country or they got reports from their their timers drivers That they had crappy roads and they picked the top ten cities or whatever and they gave a bunch of money to the parks and rec department or whatever the the public works department to To fix some of the potholes. And i think that I think they actually went and did the. They hired like a contractor something and did it themselves because they made a promo video out of it. So you know when people ask you who will fix the roads in the absence of the government you can just say it was dominoes. And i'd like to point out that none of us knew the answer would be dominant. Domino's actually doing this thing like well the free mark somehow filling and like turns and we didn't know yeah anyway. What else saying. What were you calling about tonight. Why fixed one in front of my house fell. By order pizza they would did it. That would have been better. I guess well that's the you did it yourself. Because that might have been illegal and i wanna say kudos to doing. Civil disobedience roadwork. That's awesome. yeah there was some guy. Memory planted a christmas tree in the pablo. And then i'm thinking if somebody hits a christmas tree to hear that when the guy planet christmas tree and the popular at the telephone pole they would kill themselves. That kind of thing. The other thing is i have a little insight onto your covered it but about how much politicians make like. And where's the money. come from. I've actually had joe biden in my house. Might my childhood house. My mom was a poll worker and she was the boss of the poll workers out. He didn't touch you. Did he did sniff you now. And i. i'm trying to think back. I made him one of them metal walls when he spent my hair and i blocked it out to say that might be some childhood trauma when he came over when he came over when he came over to our house. It was like like hypo. Jesus was call. My mom is cleaning for like two days and all that my dad talk but he hit you with the bell all that cut his stuff so but anyway his wife and i. It's just. I wanted to try and get a ambience or a message of the persona. Those people drove himself. He didn't have a motorcade who came to my house and he you know whatever did his thing but i think his wife's copiers hyun to you can fact check it Blue hen promotion. So i'm the copy man sam the copy me. Whatever i fixed cop. He's still always be sixty nine bucks by the way. If you guys got you pull them back. The statue of liberty. Now the rich they pay me but i'm when he would speak to go. Why doesn't this do this or that. That and people that was four girls that work there and they would actually like cower and go under their desks. And i'm like what makes them any different than us but they really you know. S s five hundred eighty and the in the in the parking lot. And it's just it's just funny the power that my question to you was like when you said you're you're on elected officials only made one hundred bucks a year But don't forget and eighteen twelve you could buy a house of goat divorce in a plow. Water bucks yeah. But they still a hundred bucks in new hampshire whereas in other places. It's like thirty. Forty fifty seventy thousand dollars. So it's and all these guys by the way and the other states they have staffs usually like you know assistance and secretaries and mansions keepers and new hampshire. They actually just have a locker. They don't actually have a room or the secretary. There's one secretary that forwards calls to the different extensions for the reps coming to you live from the representatives locker. Yeah now the senators do have a. They actually do have like shared offices from what i understand. So there's only twenty four senators in new hampshire's four hundred reps so the senators do have a few secretaries that sort of split duties between them but even still they don't have like dedicated staff for each senator. So it's a totally different kind of situation than what you're used to. in fact you can even in new hampshire. You can even look up the phone number for most of the state representatives and you'll get usually get their home or cell phone number so i can't tell you how many times i've called like things that call your representative and tell him to vote. Yes for marijuana d kramer. Whatever i and. I've actually called in like some little kid will answer the phone and then we can. You put your mom on the line and they're actually call. You're calling their house so you can't do that in most places so my question was okay so lunchbox. Joe used to drive to my mom's house and drove himself. He didn't have the motorcade or airport new. Or whatever whatever now i understand if hillary gives a talk at citibank or whenever it makes fifty thousand dollars for twenty minutes or you know all about that. But how does he have his one house. It costs board by home. Abra hood. I live it a kind of night neighborhood but where does that come from. You're not you get what i'm saying. I mean he's been in politics for forty. What seven years or something like that. I mean this guy has connections. He gets his pockets lined just like all the other politicians and the republicans and democrats. They got all their buddies. Like you said citibank shell oil and all these other mega corporations facebook all of them have their lobbyists in one way or another and they get all kinds of special favors in return. It's the same old story. Biden's no different. He's just the current selection for for president. That's all how big were hair. How come the emoluments clause doesn't kick in so that george washington dc go. Yeah if you give me a hundred dollars. I'll make sure that you get that piece of land next. Were about the outcome that never come. He's got three house duties worth more than like half the people. Listen to your today. Basically well i mean where did that come. I suspect he can't say he's going to do certain things for the money that these companies give him. But you know you put enough money into his bank account. We'll take your suggestions real seriously. I'd also like to point out that People should stop treating politicians like celebrities. Their servants treat them as such. They're not. I mean that's a nice idea captain. But they're not there to serve you. They're there to serve themselves still. Treat them as such treat him like eighty five new tricky servants. Well politicians like dirt. Kick those people who the curb went on our coming up. This is free talk live. Remember when you first heard about bitcoin.

I've been a resident or since i've been existing in the geographic area known as new hampshire and it's appropriately For what's going on in the world today it's called wear the face diaper and while it's not actually serious it's it's parity so funny like it played out here in a little bit but first we're going to your phone calls and thoughts. Let's talk to joe. He's an ormond. Beach florida and joe. You're on free talk live. Go ahead joe in ormond beach going once joe in ormond beach going twice hula. Put back on hold a second. Try here in a little bit sometimes bad cells. You never know what's going on different joe. This one is calling from maples. Florida listening on not sure. Where the hell. Maples florida is. Joseph darbar maple brother variable naples. Where that is i. Listen to you guys all the time you. You really enlightened me a lot but aggravated when you were talking about the police you now and you were talking about the Hey how many times you go in you. You look dockets and the arraignment and washed smoking a joint gotta you know. He's got a open container. But you gotta realize sometimes We put a lot of pressure on the police. But how many times have you done that. Miami florida gone in the dockets new raymond. I've never lived in miami so that we know baltimore maryland. But i know they work the same way everywhere do. They are constantly arresting. Peaceful people for victimless peaceful. Down the street with a beer by definition that is a peaceful act. Yeah and what are you going to do if they walk down with the beer and they walk in your yard into your house and they start getting a little bit aggravated. That would be a crime. Well crime so they come. They arrest them. They go container you say. Hey look you got an open container. I don't want to push the buttons right in front of the court but him coming into your yard and your house without your permission is already a crime. Another crime of open container. Hainer look even with an open container walking down the street like where i live in naples florida you you. You have to not break the law. Have you ever been to mardi gras. Yeah in orleans and you know how everybody just walks around with open containers tire thing peaceful situation though. It's a different situation because the city council didn't pass a stupid open container ordinance site. That's right there's different laws for the laws. Are crap dude. Don't you think bad bad. Laws should be disobeyed by good people. Make mistakes oh wait a minute just did hear what you just said to me right. You said yes. People should disobey bad loss. Good will disobey bad laws in your estimation but the laws are in orbit with the communities another. That's that's a lie by the people. Tell me how many laws were repealed off the books in the last ten years man. why is that apparently. We don't have the right politicians. When are you going to have the right. Come because guess what they keep getting added to something like two hundred two hundred thousand a year. I believe because most people. I know don't want to be messed with if they got a beer and they're walking down the street they don't want that law to exist. I could appreciate that. But it's still law so we can't just talk about changing it you and me by walking down the street and say hey dude. I think it's cool. It's all good with me. Why should have i if the about the laws. Screw the law. Why shouldn't we ignore that. Wait wait wait now. Don't inflate it your bad mouthing. The police for enforcing the law yeah on badmouthing them for enforcing bad laws. In the same way that i would a bad mouth and for for picking up escaped slaves and taking them back to their master. Do you think they should have done that too. That was the law. Let me know when i can talk. You've been talking this whole time. I had a question for you. Do you think the police in the eighteen. Hundreds should have taken escaped. Slaves doesn't matter the point still service. No question is if you had existed. If you joe had been alive back then in the eighteen hundreds and the law was that if an escaped slave escapes the cops grab him and they take them back to massa would. You have supported them doing that again. You deflecting refusing to answer the question. No you're deflecting. you wanna talk about something mateen. Hundreds this is two thousand and twenty and we have laws they had lost track. There's too much deflection going on into democratic and republican. And even the libertarian. What are you saying. i'm deflecting. Are you asking a question that you feel. I haven't answered. Yeah what do you want to say that. The police departments in many municipalities are not doing what they're supposed to do or doing what you think is right when in fact. I'm trying to say to you know they're just inflicting the law. I wasn't a question of. Hey joe just because you live in naples florida and you've got laws one about eighteen hundred or thousand nine hundred two thousand and twenty and that's the problem we're having is to sign. Okay have not asked a question. I asked you if you felt like i was deflecting. Some sort of question you just rambled on and you didn't ask that you speak. If you want to speak. i'll i'll hold go ahead. No no. I don't want to speak. I asked you a question. you don't want to answer the question. You don't want to have a conversation because you don't wanna admit you're saying you support all the laws. Do you support all the laws joe. Know which ones don't you support. I don't support a lot of law tick one laws pick llandough. Don't support is irrelevant. No it's entirely relevant leak. One locking kick walking. Tell me what's one of the talk. I'm asking. I don't want you to talk. I want you to answer my question. What's one of the laws that you don't support. I don't support that someone. Smoking marijuana john is illegal any business of yours elsewhere but we agree. He doesn't support those law. Sorry i miss on. We agree we agree on that. Okay on that too. Don't you think that the police point of my call. Well thank you for the call jobs. You can't have a conversation with glad. You finally answered that question but if you think that the law is bad then why should. The police enforcing bad laws. I just want to correct myself. It's a rate of forty thousand. That's four zero zero zero zero forty thousand new laws on the books every single year and what and not yet and none of them are getting repealed. And if there are any that are getting repealed or whatever. It's a very tiny amount because you never hear about that happening. There is no mechanism for ancient laws for laws. That no longer pertain. Because of technological there couldn't be. I mean there could be. There isn't because there's no money in doing that for anybody yet. So there's a ton of bad laws out there and i thank you joe for your call here tonight. The problem with folks like joe. Is they value this whole idea of law and order even at the same time as being able to admit some of the laws are bad but yet even though he knows some of the laws are bad. He's still calls for them. All to be enforced blindly. Just go ahead and enforce all these bad laws. 'cause they're the law and if you don't like it then. The politicians need to change but the politicians haven't changed it's taken decades for finally somebody to actually decriminalize legalize marijuana. They thought it was gonna happen in the nineteen seventies and it finally started happening within the last decade. It took four more decades past when it should have happened which was back when my parents were teenagers. couple generations. yeah. I mean it's absolutely insane. Politicians are not leaders. they are followers. They're not they're losers. You can't expect them to do anything right. So why shouldn't we expect the police to do the right thing you know. What if the cops actually if they actually used their compassion and they use their humanity and a bad law got passed. All the cops have to be like. This is a bad law. I didn't see that we're not gonna enforce it. I i did see. I'm not gonna enforce it. It's not my job to do that. I'm going to go after murderers. i'm going to go after rapists. i'm going to go after arsonists. I'm going to go after property crimes.

Coin omi an exodus and the other ones then. Maybe they'll actually get on board and upgrade their their technology to be compatible because that would be great. 'cause crypto is great to hold on to watch but it's really fun to actually get out there and use it it really is and i still am a little flabbergasted. That keen new hampshire is one of the places if not the only place. It's sort of a crypto mecca in that respect and his king where you can spend you can spend a bunch of places today so i bought my sandwich today. Actually about two things.

We're going to try joe in ormond beach florida. We had some technical difficulties before. We're told he's back. Joe are you with us. Is there a mere. what's on your mind. Can you hear me yes sir. Okay i was sitting in my talk before. It's probably why couldn't hammer we got you. Go ahead all right. Good good deal. Well i had a question in some comments. I wanted to make Where would we be without the police and was my other question. Also hold on before you go on with whatever the next question. Let's let's start with that one captain. You want to feel this question. Well i would say where are we the police to answer that question because with the police you know we've all seen the reports of well all of the things that police do as an organization so without the police. I believe that the market would fill the gap that there would be private security companies. That low that you could subscribe to and in many different ways shapes and forms depending on your budget and your needs it's cetera. And so on that guess. What if they did a bad job. You can fire them. Go with some other company police. You can't do that okay I can accept bad. But i guess When i was thinking was it would be like the wild west. The fight in st all the fleece. So that's kind of a necessary evil. I might the they say that the wild west wasn't really that wild to actually was sort of hollywood mythology in regards to that. Look here the hampshire where everybody can open. Carry even concealed carry without having to jump through any hoops and sign. Any papers are paying any licensing fees. It's probably one of the most well armed states in the united states in many cops around. There really aren't and guess what most actions between people most interactions are peaceful. Yup in fact. Some of the towns here new hampshire have actually abolished their police department. So the town to the west of here westmoreland new hampshire which just west of keen where. We live that that town like most of a decade ago. Completely got rid of the police. They don't have a town cop anymore. I think they had like a one and a half cops one fulltime in one part time guy got rid of them both so now if you need police services you can call the sheriff's department and the state police you know there are still some cops somewhere in the region. But they don't all right there and you know what there's not a problem with a bunch of house robberies or whatever because if you start breaking into houses in westmoreland you're probably not gonna get through three of them before somebody blasts you to death so a lot of these problems will take care of themselves with that scenario to that what you get in a community. Is you get neighbors looking out for each other more. So than they do today right because they rely on the government. Yeah well and also there's so many people who've called the cops and they don't ever show up or they show up too late and then of course you can't sue them because they're not actually contracting to do anything like they the coffee shop i yeah exactly look now. That's not to say that some cops wouldn't show up. I think some of them. Would i think i think some of would make their best effort. But how many times have we seen the stories of like what was parkland florida where the school shooting was going on in some copies. Like cowering outside wouldn't do anything about it. The problem isn't necessarily the people who are joining the police force to be policemen and police women or whatever the problem is the organization itself right because what it does is it forces what might be otherwise. Good people to enforce bad loss joe. I know you had more. You wanted to say. I got to get some of these other calls on any other night. Though we'd we're always happy to talk. We're here seven nights a week so feel free. Let's bring ray in daytona. He's listening on twitch twitch dot dot. Fm ray hey hey guys i right so I kind of like a couple of quick point or whatever now The guy that called in couple of things ago talking about drunk people wandering into houses. I mean it's just alcohol like we're not rabid bears breaking into like you. Drunk people aren't rabbit. Bear breaking into cabin in the mountains. Can't tell you how many times i've been drinking a beer in my house and wandered outside and down the streets and leeann into somebody else's yard and then into their house. I mean if a drunk guy does wander into my house and peas in the corner. I mean i'm not going to be happy about that but it's not like every like think of how many people you out at olive garden or whatever having a beer having a cocktail at dinner. I kinda give the guy a break in breaking into houses right now. I kinda give the color break because he he is trying to process what we're saying and his brain is telling him these things and so what usually happens when the brain is trying to process these things. Is they start going. You start getting these what i call. I'm trying to think of the right term. These but what about this very specific and unique circumstance. That will never happen. You're very rarely. I did actually have a drunk guy come into the studio once upon a time and it was right here. Okay steph stephanie. former co host here. She left the front door unlocked. And this was before we had like an automated locking system or whatever so. She left the front door unlocked in this drunk. Young guy who you know. Oh the free staters or whatever lived there and it was probably like three in the morning or something like that. He comes in stumbles into the studio found. A box of wine in the in the kitchen manage to like he was so drunk. You like he likes slung. Some of the wine around so it was like it was a little messy. When i found him the next morning. I woke up the next morning. I thought i heard something downstairs. And i'm like what's awesomely here. And i came out of my came out of the bedroom. I looked down. And there's this guy down there. And i'm like i said can i help you and it turns out. He was just drunk guy. He wasn't a threat or anything like that he just wanted to come into the free staters studio and hang out and he was like watching youtube videos for two hours down here. Thanks for the call tonight. I appreciate hearing from. Yes so we got along fine and then literally he's. He's a bit of a mess but kind of ended up getting arrested for some other things later on. But he just had some wine jill down. The studio wasn't the worst thing the world all right. Thanks for the call.

Tell us some fantastic food cooking. My gosh you could buy. Food crypto currency and gold backs and. It was really a lot of fun forecast party. Go learn more about it as we go to more of your calls and thoughts i up he's charlie in alamogordo new mexico listening to k. I n n go ahead. Charlie guided me part to before. Welcome back what's on your mind. Hey that sounds really great man. I can't wait to go to talk to you about that. You're talking about the officers and stuff like that. It's just now A friend of mine at final touch call while she owns it. And i worked for him and i went up one day and it was broken into the car wash. They tore up the chain machine. That's inside people that have changed machine on the outside the car. Wash right so i called the officers for him to call to get a report officer it. Okay he would. He would come down when you had a chance is kinda busy chasing something and He never showed up and my boss finally called them back. And hey you never came over to get a report. It's like a shirts policy because someone you know really messed up a lot of cheering right and you have to have that report in order to file with the insurance careful yesterday you have to. You know they never did. They said it was mailing him one and they haven't done that either doing that. And how long ago was this this the two weeks ago. Two weeks sixteen hundred dollars. They both the machine from behind. It doesn't still door to door. Wow yeah really wants. A crack was in there. When i showed up because scary myself. Because that's not right so in your case in your case when seconds count police are only several weeks away that they remember because he called. He said they may actually instead that he'd never even thought about. And what can you really do. I mean it's not like you can just all of a sudden stop paying taxes because then the same cops they will show up. Then you want the cops to show up. Do try not paying the property tax bill on that business and then give them a couple of years. Oh yeah they're gonna show up because at some point they'll tax sale the property. Turn it over the The city and then the city then sells it at attack sale and some new owner comes in. And he's like oh you're on my property get out and then the cop show up and they ve you but when he finally called back. They said the reason why they wouldn't go. They say they were because the virus of god taken over for right due due to covid where no longer investigating any crimes involving property destruction. Theft suggested that they want to contract with you we will give them the right neighborhood Yup it doesn't matter all you can do is complain about it. There's nothing else that you can actually do. You can't withhold your money in this goes back to the point you were making captain the guy who called earlier. Well what if we didn't have the police. You said we would have competing agencies in marketplace. Who want to earn your business. And if they respond in the contracted amount of time because there would be it would be a contract right like it'd be like okay. Well i need the highest level of service. I'm willing to pay the highest tier prices. Okay can wait a little bit. You know they'll take the middle tier or whatever you'd have different levels. It's like what i call when i called into you. Guys go weeks ago. Officer ticket at the border patrol going through when he was standing right next to. The officer gave me ticket tinted windows. Wow i can't believe i'm gonna beat that going to challenge it. Good good luck. That's what it takes. That's what people need to do. Charlie thanks for the call manager sharing starting up and yeah. That's what it takes you know we. We started the show with the video. These people yelling at these cops to get out of the gym in buffalo new york. And that's what it took. They went out they left. We don't want your services here officer away. You're not helping your here working for the state. You're not working in protecting serving us. Lou didn't have to shoot the cops didn't have to push him out. They didn't violent. They just spoke how they felt about this and they told them to go and they did. That's what needs to happen and the people that do end up getting bs tickets like our caller there in charlie for the call by the way if you say not guilty demand the trial date. You'll be surprised how many of them will drop the tickets. Well something else that just popped into. My mind is I brought this up when we had some people visiting here. Recently to see if new hampshire was right for them to move to as part of the the migration here freedom-loving and apparently. I said something. And i saw a couple of those people the next day and they were like. I'm just thinking about something you said. And the thing that i said was this society recently. The the united states at least went through this whole bit about bullying. I remember when bullying was big in the news. We're teaching kids how to not know how to avoid bullies get through bullies and stand up to bullying all that kind of stuff. And i don't remember one time. In fact i remember. I remember seeing government agents handing out pamphlets to school kids regarding bullying but nobody ever connected the dots to say. That government is the largest bully on the face planet and that police officers are bullies for the politicians. That's what they do. That's exactly that's their entire job. Description is being a bully for the the laws that are and by the politician's yep but nobody seemed to put those things together. And so apparently this made a you know an impression on these people. So i wanted to mention it here because it just popped into my head that police are bullies by definition and every now and then they do the right thing. Yeah but a lot of the time every now and again a bully is gonna throw a kid a half a sandwich or something but doesn't make him not a bully. Let's go ted. He's in salina. Kansas listening to kia. Go ahead this girl thanks. I had an experience getting pulled over in which Several years ago when i came to the court I spoke with the judge in east. Said you know. Take it as one hundred twenty five and he said i can charge you up to five hundred dollars. I said oh really. I said i'd like to think it over and then i told the da That i wanna trial. And i sat down and the da came over to the road in front of me was another man. And she says to him she goes with dismissing your case and then she came over to me and she said sir would dismissing your case the officers and showing up all right. That's great. But if i agreed to pay the ticket they never would have told me. The officer wasn't lying there. they're corrupt they. They always been on trial. And i have experienced and the will lie to win. Absolutely not only will the. Da lie but the cops are gonna lie as well. I mean i'm sorry but that's just the truth. People don't understand it. They believe the cops of these paragons virtue out there and they're so honest and i'm sorry anybody that pays attention anybody that's been inside the system like you. Have you know the truth. Ted thanks for sharing your story with us tonight. And that's what it takes. You have to be willing to stand up to these people and demand your trial. Then get the evidence to show you discovery. They gotta show you whatever they got against you. And that's when they're gonna start trying to make a deal and then don't take the deal either. I would recommend. I would recommend that you hold out. Go all the way through the trial willing to take whatever the consequences are and they might just drop the case attention.

But i got something special here and i'm going to get a little bit meta right now and it's the only article angry and so we got a problem. We got a problem versus occurs a lot of extremism and keen version robin hood. Who were throwing money at people. Vers- christopher can't well but now we got to in studio here. We got a sovereign citizen extremist. Right here according to espn center. We ian freeman has been named by p l. c as a sovereign city. Yeah i got the article right here. It's from twenty seventeen december. Twenty first thousand seventeen. Well known advocate for far-right common law systems sponsors legislation that would officially sanctioned pseudo-legal quote contracts in state system. New hampshire has a long and unfortunate history of experience with sovereign citizens dating back to nineteen ninety s when the radical anti-government movement attracted a following investments rural areas. I culminated with tragic with tragic shooting. Rampage never heard of that. The movement's adherents however have lingered on. Karl dreger look into the movement's adherents however lingered on states fringes. So long attracted enough. Follow her in the intervening years but now some of not only have won election to the state's legislature but are now introducing bills that would protect an enhanced sovereign citizens extremists quote constitutional beliefs. Oh my god. We can't have that going on right. We can't have a few citizens deciding to not be slaves and they have rights a whole system will collapse. Sovereign citizen legislator from hooks. They misspelled fucking hooks named richard quote. Dick marple sponsored. The bill h. b. One six five three. Which would essentially protect such common activities by movement followers as filing phony leans against state and local government officials if pass not only would sovereign citizens have their imaginary quote contracts under which they file liens recognized but any municipality refusing to play along could be fined ten thousand dollars by state bill uses typical arcane and obscure language common to sovereign citizens pseudo legal filings. See they put these stupid buzzwords like pseudo pseudo legal you know i mean it's a lot it's ivy league or it's not a can't be fucking pseudo-legal and it used to be that actually believe in obviously one of the pro freedom things i learned in journal because it used to be that whenever that the The government or the courts would always refer whatever gave people the most freedom was their ruling and then change right. What i would. Government explicitly didn't control. They couldn't control. Until i like one hundred years or so and then you know be.

That's d. live dot l. r. n. dot fm k. And we are back live on this friday night. Special guests cody from your live and now I always do. They just need to know introduction for because you'll be nervous lazy broadcasters. So cody You wanted to just briefly. How would you describe yourself or if your your credentials your gravitas. I don't know i started doing talk. Radio in two thousand eleven or podcasting if you will but you know everybody's got a podcast so that barely counts. I did radio radio for a bunch of years. You know actually get paid for it and data And i broadcasted on a big Portland's big station w. j. n. Multiple times and then later on. After that after i got fired because you know if you work in radio you're gonna get fired I moved to new hampshire for about a year and a half along with all the crazy free staters and Yeah i did some freetalklive its moth. You're live there in the l. r. dot fm studio there and you know just tried to make people laugh and make them think at the same time as me very well put very well. Put okay so now back now formalities. Or out of away. So let's talk about you know before i interrupted you. I guess we'll watch to much. Alex jones influence interrupting my guests. Now what is your solution for this civil war with fiasco. So we'll yeah. It's closely ties in alex jones. Because you know. He talks about the fluoride in the water. Which is a real problem that you know. They're putting chemicals in the water. Supply my solution which you know. It'll never happen but if it were to fix everything now is to just change what. The chemicals are instead of putting sodium fluoride in the water supply. Just replace it with a you. Know some lysergic acid diethylamide or maybe some Mda and my idea everybody's going to be too hard to leave the house. There's not gonna be any civil war and if and if anybody does leave it's going to be for a drum circle not to not to hold up a freaking m. sixteen pointed at some guy Bloom problem solved. You know. I know. I always harp on psychedelics. Which is weird. I still do it considering. I haven't even taken a psychedelic in probably two years now. But you know it's one of those things where it's life changing and You become a more enlightened peaceful personalities with you and you don't angry people that you see reality on social media or where wherever you see them. They're everywhere you can't avoid them. They're the people that need to toke up or drop tab the most they're usually the anti-drug people to you know it will come down. Maybe they'll make them look in the mirror a little bit and say like hey. I'm kind of an asshole. That's why people don't like me. That's why i don't like the world and once you see everybody has one. It's it's really hard to get into this dualistic notion of society of left versus right black versus white and etcetera etcetera. Which is the problem right. Now is that we've got two sides you to pick a side and Yeah i refuse to play that game. Because i just see people as people you know. Some of them are sorely misguided. But at the end of it you know. It's not tireless. Their fault that they were brainwashed. Their entire life by the system in the best thing you can do is try to be peaceful and loving hopefully. Open their eyes to you. Know all of that. Gay hippie shed you know getting along and that's what we need right now. That's only need right now. Absolutely very well put yeah. That's why when people would like to harp on harp on the catholics. Urva jews or freemasons. Or you know of a fascist scenario thing. And i say well look. That's all a bunch of and mirrors and distractions right from the main. Problem is a coercive state rapper. v coercive state. Well yeah i mean not highlights another big problem with with everything really is that we forget who to blame. you know. it's easy to just blame the left or the right or another race or whatever and really and you know. I'm going to sound like nut job again but you know the truth is kind of weird. It's it's the elite bankers that are facilitating the social dichotomy. You know they want you fighting with each other. So nobody's paying attention to the fad that they're they're running show you know they're they're they're creating these wars they're behind these false flags there behind everything in. Oh you you want to look at the the bad guy. You gotta look at the bankers and stop blaming the communists the fascist i mean. Yeah a lot of these. People have really bad and dangerous ideas but these ideas have been originated and created by the by these elite bankers. Who put that out there for everybody to fight over and it's a genius genius plan but you have to see through it if you ever want to figure this world out. Oh absolutely absolutely in psychic. Who had look at. Who's pushing all of this right. You're pretty maxine waters all these democrats in congress. Cnn and where do they get money from big over money from big business. Yeah it's it's it's a big scam. Sorry i get a little distracted. My mom says there's a tornado warning soon. I don't know what that's all about Maybe we'll all die. Anyways it was could be weber. Weapons right you're being too woke for our end so the government sending harp is an after me. Now they're gonna suck me up. 'cause i'm speaking too much truth but Thing if i a little bit of time left in this segment so you wanted to say You mentioned you. Wanted to segue into from talk about lsd to d. m. t. now yeah and We'll probably have to wrap the conversation up after this break. But just to Different exposition here. The other day. Something happened that. I really was surprised to see happen. Is there is a beef now between alex jones in joe rogan. And it's weird because it was a year or two that Alex jones was on. Rogan's podcast and it was a huge huge episode. But joe rogan's one of these can marry a weather politics type. Guys where like his opinion can based on who has guest is so like if he has like a left of center guests on. And you'll take that as an opportunity to sort of like distancing himself from alex which i get why that would totally piss him off because nobody likes a guy like that you know. Pick a side. Don't try to please everybody. 'cause you're gonna piss off your friends But on the other hand it's so weird because you know they're both right and wrong in different ways. Like i think alex jones right about the anthony board suicide being suspicious what i think. He's very very wrong about what he thinks. Emt is all about otis. Waking up on a slave ship had had actually spooked me. Well yeah and it's it's weird because like he said multiple times that he's never done. Emt he seems to know exactly what it's all about. He was saying that. You meet botham ed and that the machine elves are actually goblins. Man actually goblins wearing masks. And you're going into this evil dimension hold on to hold that thought cody. Hold those secrets. Commercial break but The second week back. We're gonna continue going through visit. Joe rogan beef and the secrets behind the mtv's forty. Don't go away on free talk live. We're bringing people to the ideas of liberty.

You're listening to the best liberty oriented audio streamed around the clock on the air and online. This is the libby radio network at l. r. n. dot fm. All right and were back. Mrs putting forty. I got special guests. Chris cantwell in studio today. All all my guests are special. Right is such a fucking awesome show. So we'll we'll just record as if for anyone just tuning in first off. We're fuck were for hour and a half but we're talking about so everyone's averaging sansern fucked around with anyone who's saying well not anyone who's saying anything of worth but then we're talking about so chris why we're talking about why free talk live hasn't been censored or because you know freetalklive more radio shows and alex jones is on and by choice to like. Apparently alex jones pays to be on fucking shows be as a larger internet presence. You mention open borders but also free talk. Live says a lot of of a avangard things like people should not pay taxes should be allowed to own whatever gun they wind have sex with five year olds all sorts of stuff so that stuff he established certainly fucking hate. So did you think. Open borders is such a large thing on her itinerary that they would let free talk live. Go despite you know saying you could do all sorts of drugs and guns and all sorts of shit all right. So here's the better answer to it. Let it is the impact on the overton window. Okay so for anybody. Who's not aware of the overton windows. What we typically think of is the the range of allowable opinion. What you're allowed to you know what what what topics are allowed to enter the political discourse right and so leading into to the two thousand sixteen election what terrified everybody about the alt-right they made it out. That were just a bunch of violent monsters and it just wasn't born out by the evidence but you know what they're really concerned about the reason they add to propagandize against us so bad is because we were. We were shifting the overton window right word. Okay so i even things. I've talked about this before on the radical agenda. You know not not everything that goes on on that program is policy advocacy in the real sense. Right what we're doing is we're a conversation where there are no limits on you know how far in a direction you go if you're a call and you're going to be like i got an idea. Let's do some ethnic cleansing. Let's discuss the merits of ethnic cleansing. Instead of hang up on you like a coward right and so a lot of stuff. It's not something that you would actually advocate for. But what you're doing is you're doing something to the right of what you're at what you're what you're trying to get to in order to change the window of allowable discussion so that something that you couldn't even you weren't even hear about somebody saying something outrageous says you know you know questioning the holocaust or something right and you know the the idea behind that is not necessarily to the president of the united states. Go and you know issue an investigation. The holocaust the idea is to change this from an environment where you can't even acknowledge differences between groups to a place where does differences are acknowledged in their reflected in policy and so we changed the overton window and they saw that they saw. That plane is day and the propaganda on the left. They got they got scared right and they beginning say they've been. Do you see how badly they treat fox news. Even right like like barack. Obama didn't want to let fox news into stuff at the white house. Aside from carlson hannity fox news is awful via via the bitches on outnumbered. They have chefs math. And and everyone else's mundane or milk does i mean. Yeah but but what i'm saying. Is they their their entire thing. Is shifting the overton window leftward and we more than anything with the alright did was attacked the overton window and nobody else did that. That's that's an essential part politics at the right has completely forgotten about in. The left has been absolutely outrageous with right and so once the right started doing that and won the presidency and transformed the republican party. Frankly that scared the living hell out of the left and so they went nuts with it. And i mean this is where you get transgenderism. Now they're trying to make that a mainstream idea. I mean you know it went from it now. It's literally abolish ice. I mean this is what they're doing the overton window they're going. They're taking extreme positions trying to get back into their comfort zone and so when they are attacked when they're banning people from social media they banned me they ban. You know. Richard spencer whoever right they start with the most expensive ones and then when they get away with that and there's no major backlash than they ban less offensive people. But it's always people off on. What is the outer edge of allowable right wing opinion right so once. They got rid of us then. Alex jones was the fringe guy and so they got rid of alex jones. And now they're coming after. Tom woods and tucker carlson. Okay and they'll go after that if they can get away with. It has said anything remotely. Hateful right tucker. Carlson never goes an episode without saying you should never judge people on the color. He all every every single episode does this. He's co he's hyper aware of all the criticisms he's going to receive any any always counter signals. Whatever you know bigoted thing he's gonna get pinned with and he always said it. He's he's expert at it but because he's advocating for the causes that we're advocating for or even trying to reach some more to what we're advocating. They make videos like they say like. Look at tucker. There's video media. Matters recently released video. Comparing nita tucker. Carlson media matters for america to this. And so they said like tucker. Carlson says liquid. Christopher cantwell said and because in the documentary. You you say you expressed your admiration for him and said if he told you to pick up a rifle you'll fucking do it. I believe that was not in the vice news thing that was. That was something that i sat on a on an episode of the radical agenda at some point. And that's in my wikipedia. And that's where i saw it for things like this is one of the they tack onto. I like this guy and then they try to tie him to be right. And it's part of it's part of the smear campaign that they're gonna use to try to take them off the news and that's after they already did. I mean how many people do they do away with at fox news right. They started with fox news. That your version. Maybe they care because that's who she gives you foreign policy advice you've a salad you this right it's all fucking h- somewhat attractive attractive women news. Yeah fox news. Staff their entire place with hot chicks and guys tried to screw them and all of a sudden. Now we've got to have a internal investigation about how this travesty occur. Way to go fire fucking evening lineup. Get the hell outta here. You knew what you were doing you know. And so they're trying. They're already trying to do that at fox news. Like going to get rid of bill o'reilly because his opinions are dangerous right and they're like holy shit. Who the hell is mike. Eight christopher cantwell right. And then they're like we gotta go gotta get rid of everybody but freetalklive is not a threat to that. Why because three talk live is going to be like a case are wonderful. Of course i'll use whatever pronouns. your what. Those border patrol agents are evil everything. The democratic party truly wants the free talk live is no threat to him on. But so that's a good point. And i will say for reference Mikey knock is is an enigma. He's jewish commentator on the alt-right Appreciate diversity is jewish. Wife and a your. Your information is incorrect and outdated another wrong. If being a jew with being jewish. But it's just an odd occurrence being jewish on the on the people who i trust. Say that that's not accurate information to call. Mikey nakajima he did have a jewish wife but data voice. Now shockingly enough. That didn't like improve their marriage. None and so well it just just safe to say and i wish we. Gosh i wish i could be fucking three hour so much to talk to but Obviously you know. Jesus said to love everyone just depending on where as long as not even as long as accept them just to love everyone in decide not to accept him as versa. Severe going to hell so whatever but to actually and this is something gosh man which more maybe we could get into in the last the last segment you mentioned your side and you mentioned va right and you mentioned names. Lie or you mentioned. Richard spencer but also. Would you consider matt hinde bay. And we're not trying to being you do and infighting ideological. Would you consider matt. Hi bach member of via the so-called right. Yeah and what's your what would you say is your definition when you save a right. This is not a racist. Shows is difficult for me to say. But you know i i because so far as to say there's there's a really strong ethnic component to what it is that i'm doing and and i really not sure how to read that's interesting. You say that because people when they say when you think of right wing verses. Left-wing it's more of an ideological thing because you could be any race or any color and think a certain thin- put it this way so there's a certain like liberal elite if you will okay they they they can. They can find themselves in any number of areas. They blend in just fine. But they're you know they're kind of like an elite class globalist and whatnot and does people there in republican party and the democratic party and the right is essentially what rises up against them up. Okay well we'll get into more of at and in this next segment. God i hope i had. I just had to open up a can of worms when we only have eight fucking minutes left. We'll get into that and not much more because someone also into We have chris well in and stay tuned for be exciting conclusion vis a special edition of Don't go away sell for one.

The indictments against raw celebrate in the district of maryland were dismissed with prejudice meaning. They can never be refiled. This is especially good because those indictments contain the only charge ever made that ross engaged in murder-for-hire this was a serious allegation at ross outbreak. Denies it was never prosecuted or rolled on by jury. Putt was trumpeted by the federal government. And the media. As if it were proven fact. The maryland court held these indictments for almost five years poisoning. Ross's case and leaving him under a cloud of unproven allegations as explained enrolls appeal to the supreme court. The fact that the judge used these allegations her all say draconian sentence of life without parole violated his sixth amendment. Right to a jury. Trial judges are required to issue. Sent this based on convictions. Decided by a jury not unproven. Allegations never even charged trial. Although this is a positive development dropped indictment will not set. Ross free now.

Protesters angry over fuel taxes clash with police so french police fired tear gas and water cannons to disperse violent demonstrators in paris in paris on saturday as thousands gathered in the capital and beyond states road blockades to vent anger against rising fuel tax. So like so. You know obamacare passes. Everyone's premiums get you know get rate increase. You get a penalty if you don't get insurance all sorts of terrible shit along with that. I the of a patriot act. I'll just. I'll just listen to it. And what was it. I think the only you know only had protests in washington which is something radio. The tea party went there and protest. The just sit around the capitol buildings and just you know have her dress up as pirates or excuse me the patriots of retry cornered hats. Ever signs and stuff. Which is as i say. Something but nowhere near dislike setting up road blockades which i guess probably in france cops like in europe. The cops inventory asleep under underarms compared to the us when really in europe cops probably have just the appropriate amount of equipment and the us are over armed. Obviously police aren't meant to protect anyone here. If they do it's incidental know. Obviously i i keep keep mentioning it because people's have the attention span of a goldfish but the courts have ruled. The cops have no obligation no legal obligation to keep you safe.

Weapons is because they want to get around the fact that they can't have a standing army on us soil to keep the plebs slaves in line so they wanna have their own army of police.

Oh wonderful liberty. Gusman listener of listener of the hour for for posting. Thank you And you know. I'm just gonna find this batum. This is unprofessional. I'm going to be googling something right on here but it's your new makes fun of deviation donation. Yeah may news just be. He's also become such a such a show of another small donation. Which which one is it. donation based parasite. That's great Here we go. Mal new makes fun of a fifty cent donation sending it now and i mean it is really really sick and i and i will never do if i ever if i ever become a huge asshole like new become entitled Like that you know. I'll be. I'll deserve to be killed by james weight. This is different because originally wasn't it a Two dollar donation that he got upset about it says here another small donation so so he's done this more than once over is a whole compilation of it looks. I can't find a two dollar one. That's what i remember it. Being at least the original thing that was upsetting to him with somebody wanted him to take a two dollar check or something like that. Let me tie. Maybe if i type in russia. Melania let's see if you don't mind just playing. Let's see what it is. We did receive a delightful fifty cent donation yesterday. Fifty cents wait. Wait fifty cents. Us dollars so i'd like to think of that as fifty cents and a half and when which which takes about forty nine cents off a kidney. Actually it's thirty one cents which since nineteen. I think we're fighting the wrong thing. I think homeless men would get offended if you drop that in their tips cups personally unless it was like a huge amount of specialty of which can be an invitation to a fistfight by it did come with the note though the eh enjoy the note. The note said. I don't agree with everything you say but i appreciate the time you dedicate to your research. You're making the world and much more thoughtful place so thanks. No sorry you just read that correctly. It's not a much more thoughtful place. 'cause a much thoughtful place would be like seventy five cents. It accidents just thoughtful. A more thoughtful. Now i gotta tell you as far as compliments go. I mean first of all this. The poke in the eye fifty cents. I think that's that's quite important. And so i i. I got this one makes the two dollar one. I never. i never listened to. He must have really scrub that off the internet. Because i can't find that one you say. But i appreciate the time you dedicate to your research that that is like you know. It's not that. I find very attractive. But i really do appreciate the amount of makeup you have on you try really hotrod clearly. You're looking at a lot of stuff before doing a show. And i just wanted to tell you that. I know that you're looking lovely lot of stock before doing a show and at the show without that stephanus that you're looking at would be different. So here's someone. i think pretty much. They're telling us all about their childhood. That was that'd be my guest but not even close to walk the what that is or maybe it's like somebody with a bad family. And his like he is making us he. He is making the donation. His parents writing the note and choosing the amount. That's sort of my my guest but that was something quite special to receive and to that person. I just wish there was a way of sending your nineteen cents because if one thousand nine cents is important to you or fifty cents is important to you. I really feel terrible about taking it from you. You know like here. Mr. here's my my fifty cents in the world for all of the research that i'm show you do. I'm like wow please please take this back. This is the money that is embarrassing to receive or as you have a lot more than that then. I'm sorry but we can't get in the way that we would like to because of non solve loss anyway. Oh my god week. That turned out way. Worse than thought it was gonna be my god. Okay so yeah. You don't don't expect that from you not have to worry about that for me. Actually my first donation. I got was Someone who what's it called on twitch like bits bits so i got one hundred which no one gave you cash for that so i got a dollar and so i was really gonna put down to donation collection. Been at church. But as i'm walking out this homeless guy. He's okay man. Do you have a few dollars. You can spare. I had a dollar in my pocket. So mike finally here so give them a dollar and he grabs it and he's like. Hey man could you give a few more and man. Oh if i was not afraid. If i was not in a hurry to go to church and i was like i tried to pull it back but the guy kept grateful. I was like i said to him. I said well you know. I was gonna put in the collection been same. That's the same bullshit as just in reverse absolutely like i don't say what is worse than the other but like this guy you know like and thousand you only fucking money. I had at the time and so like really you. Don't try to be a good person. Trying to be a christian. I gave a guy all the fucking like physical cash. I was on me. And i think maybe had a few dollars in my wallet. Did i give a church. And i wanted to grab it back but the guy kept me like. Oh so you want you know. It's not good enough for you to to to bitch and moan and ask for more back to you know you have iron grip so i just let him keep it. I'm like you know what whatever whatever i mean just like way.

And and the only way i could get out of doing. I'm gonna try and get out of doing homework and having to test because they're going to be like all right. Everyone pent pick up your pencils. Somebody like man. I just professor. I just can't do this. I'm do stress man these you know it's about civics and here you know they talk about the police and i'm just and i could get out of doing work. I go to a safe. Space and pet puppies and kittens play of plato. And so welcome back. Everyone may. I didn't even have my computer out. I'm just. I'm just absolutely winging it here. I probably should check for any questions or anyone. I actually i might just indicate the whole fucking our this. This is such a big big topic. I even tighter what did i. Let's see what i title it was. It came police bust. Vincent's cherry and now. I understand why that might have some sexual connotations. And i was talking to in about it because i came up with the idea. I forget exactly what it was but it helped me refine it and i didn't know at first suicide. Kpd pops vincent's cherry. The p the via the alliteration of pop and pop cherry is what i believe is the term and i say pop my cherry because this is my first cuoco. Negative most encounters of law enforcer negative. Because there it's a someone with a gun who could tell you basically to do whatever you can to defend yourself. But this is the first time i was actively i had like a direct negative encounter so this was my first in theory. It was a first for me and so and they didn't just pop it. You know they fucking busted it right. It wasn't just like your like. Were you a dunkin donuts. All right okay. You know. I believe you look like a decent guy. And and that's it. But no i had to fucking was given the third degree. I was fucking grill. So i and now some might say vince. And you're being paranoid bad. Things happen in keene all the time. But i don't know. I i thought wow you know something really fucking bad mother and i i wanted to say it but i i just didn't wanna press my luck so i thought to myself. Wow something really bad. Must've happened fucking dunkin. Donuts free cop cars. After me. And i mean i don't know maybe that's maybe that's like perceived standard procedure having free. I don't know and it didn't seem to important. Because i couldn't find any news of it. Yeah i could have gone to the dunkin donuts. But i don i the i might have had. I might have had a cop waiting there saying returning to the scene of a crime area and i was. Obviously my first fall was well. I'm going to check the police logs tomorrow and i. I don't know how often they i don't know how often they updated. I imagine like. I believe at least a week if it's like if they updated every two weeks that's probably the extent i believe it's bullshit anyways but an told me just a few days in the last police log is monday. The nineteenth believe monday was the nineteenth. Gotta get my dates. Correct here monday. The nineteenth and this happened on tuesday march twentieth. And so i don't. I find back sneeze here so versa. I'm waiting right before. I could definitely savers conspiracy going on. I'm going to wait until the police logs. Obviously they could. Just you add like vega fudge it or whatever but that's vested going. Yeah but if it's just not even there right. If i if i do control effort dunkin donuts street. It's on and there's nothing there i'm gonna say. Okay something's fishy. Something's up now someone would ask. Well vincent why why would they. Why would they bother you. It's not like you go robin hood hang or you go around talking about Violence urged so. It's not like you know. I run around of tiki torches. Just sit on my ass. I ever in my dorm or here running my mouth off or type in or just. Yeah just just hanging out right. I don't i don't go out and cause trouble and so obviously my ego wants to say. My ideas are dangerous. But i think what in in all ibiza when i talked to in about it. He said why they pull you over and i said oh he said i matched of a description of a suspect and he told me that. That's the oldest trick in the book. And then i thought i said well could they do that. Could cops lie. I mean why would a police officer lie about anything has added for happened before sound like cops could get away with lying. It's not like that happens on a regular regular can't keep a straight face on a regular basis and you ever think was sorry. I was talking to preview. The i just met him that night. And you know we got off pretty good. He's you know he's a nice guy. And so i got his number and the next day texting and i say hey man did cops give you time last night. It's like oh boy. Did they ever and from what i understand. I didn't talk to on a fumble. From what i got. He was very diverse. Five cop cars in the area of two one to him. Three one to me. And i think maybe it's because i'm sort of bigger venom. So they thought. I was too much to handle yours but bigger threat. I had free inches on them. As he said and said one point ver five cop cars in total and so what i. What i believe happened was once the free cop cars were done with me. They then went and gave him a hard time. So for me back gives credence to the theory that it was this whole thing was just because you know. Pre pre z. Is relatively new. I guess. I i've become a lot more active with stuff going on recently. Because you know. I'm just different work ethic or whatever but the more ambition i a show going on. I have my own Activism and so even day was like even dave said look for re probably messing with you man and so i don't know could and so. The theory is if the theory currently stands that they just wanted to sort of a like a probing right they wanted to. I forget what the military term is but you know they they sort of poke and see way. Gosh got a lot of commercial break. I'll look at all spend a recipe. Our talking about this maybe taking some questions but severe. Basically ju yeah. Let's just call it probation. Probing seeing you know if i'll crack whatever and told me. He said well now that you told them you were invited Involved with me now they know and i figured well in even if they wanted to know that a who went in and out of his studio it would just have a hidden camera. What i've seen like delivery trucks to show right in the middle of the nine park across the street. Stand there we go out and look at it fucking drives away the weirdest thing and i remember saying guess was here in her like gosh did do deliveries at like two in the morning like now i mean we. Liberty activists have a good reason to be paranoid right they. It was before my time here. But i was living new hampshire they. They said they needed a the bearcat in new hampshire specifically because of libertarians and patriots. Benita virginia military equipment and trump's been doing a fucking shitty job but even before he's been doing a recent shitty job he did this whole militarizing police thing and i'm absolutely fucking absolutely fucking sick of i'm sick of these people in the patriot movement. And i i hate calling things fucking move nazi basinas different people in the free percenters. And just into you conservatives. I get along with these people. You know i go to some events and hang out. I am sick of 'em fucking sl- licking the ass in the boots of cops. I am so tired of it. They you're never gonna take our guns. Hey assholes guests. One v order comes to take your guns or god forbid. It doesn't do whatever gets who's gonna be fucking enforcing it for cops.

See get three in one segment three in this one last week so You know speaking of vermont. I have this one racist vermont. Legislature tries to block mormon migration and mrs from valley's valley news covers the upper valley. So most of It's mainly vermont. But some counties in new hampshire montpellier crusade to stop utah engineers proposal to develop a huge plant community and four in wide receiver valley has moved to the legislature where a bipartisan group of upper valley lawmakers has introduced a resolution in the vermont house opposing but knew the program resolution calls on engineer and developer. David hall who has purchased at least two thousand acres in sharon strafford royalty in tunbridge to quote abandoned his plans for a self sustaining community of twenty thousand residents all said heap his twenty thousand number and migrations hall.

D. democrat from fettered said the non said the non-binding measure will both serve a work of residents in four towns who voted overwhelmingly to put four barrel resolution at town meeting last year. This resolution is essentially another step up the ladder of expressing opposition to this type of development locally and in vermont generally said resolutionary verizon resolutions primary sponsor it has received a sport twelve legislatures including a bunch of names. People there is a real white river junction. Yeah of course hartford of course Visa vermont places. So i doubt anyone here knows or cares varies a fucking disgorges pops up man. It ain't worth it. There's a real concern. What effect quote near you new visas does we'll have upon vieria and so i'm just trying to bring that to the forefront were said on wednesday adding that the area wouldn't be able to sustain a large population influx. Okay so you. These are the same people. Probably the same people who voted to take. We got the same people. Who are you know. Finding for open borders from vermont like. Oh yeah everyone everyone come on in. We're going to import these always day. You'll be new democrat voters but the second from all over the world right and for people from all over the world to come there in which which does happen but then a bunch of whites. I guess quote christian people from utah. Wanna move there and suddenly ver- you know very clover like oh no. You can't come here. You will destroy the demographics here. You'll you'll do population you mess around population. Suddenly change changes about is absent. That is a double standard vat is hypocrisy and condemning the vs racists. Vermont irs for for just hating on mormons. Not even going to read a recipe article hearing okay so i criticized spe- speaking of shitty journalism anyways You know about the valley news. And i criticized the new york times. I'm gonna criticize some some far. Right journalists establishes now and So the daily stormer is I think it's one of the biggest sites He's we're all right sites out there and they have some. Sometimes you know seeing my gab and article from fair peruse it. I know what that word means but it sounds like a proper use. Okay i'm gonna look up just to see if i have to per you just see if i read something. Typically in a thorough. No no i don't peruse it. what's the opposite. i thought it was. What's an anthem of peru's okay. It's it's an origin english word. Oh it's an anglo norman french peruzzi to examine okay. I peruse anson him into a hero peruse neglect. I don't what if you know what fuck it so. Sometimes i just check out what what they have to say. Because you have an open minded person. I gotta look at all different kinds of i get. I get flooded with all kinds of far left bullshit from like the new york. The new york times cnn and everything. So i see what is what's on the other side saying so ovation even had to change it so here. We go. Title is paul. Does his bid again will shut down. Government over libertarian gibberish and it was posted a bygone. Adrian saul march twenty third. But the editor's note. But the starts a tweet by senator rand. Paul and for anyone doesn't over was a v. Omnibus bill and right this like this is the first i heard of the omnibus bill and so he came out to oppose it and so senator. Paul tweeted on march. Second twelve million for scholarships for lebanon the country not the town twenty million for middle east partnership initiative scholarship program twelve million in military funding for vietnam three point five million in nutrition assistance to laos fifteen million and developmental assistance to china. This is fifteen million of your well. It's not even like i'd say. Probably a small percentage of it is your money and the rest is just Just like money printed out of thin air a few few moments before but this is. This is adding to the debt right. Fifteen million in developmental assistance to china. And oh here we go a ten million for women lawn ellios. I assume as law enforcement officers are whatever. Ten million for women ellios in afghanistan. Oh wow mantis. What would we do without the government. Man we got. This is why we gotta pay taxes. We got fund. All these essential is central programs so they article begins rant. Probably has a point here but the okay. So they change the article they. They changed the article because Used just you know saying bullshit rant. Probably has a point here but people are just so used to him crying. Wolf as part of a marketing gimmick that they tend to react negatively to him if crying if he had the consistency of his dad. No one would question what is doing okay. So the original article as follows. So i was the editor. We can't pass this budget. Because insert long excerpt from atlas shrugged. And this guy wonders why his neighbors want to beat him up. This guy will literally shut down the us government just so he can make an autistic speech about small government and rejected ism or some shit. No one cares rand. Wow great journalism. Daily stormer doesn't even say it's a it's a it's a column so many it actually so politico rand. Paul is keeping everyone in suspense yet again. The the junior senator from kentucky's refusing to rule out forcing another brief shut government shutdown over his protests of one point three trillion spending bill which he has called budget busting He said that he had more of two thousand pages of twenty two hundred page. Bill left to get through before he would decide to how to proceed. And i'm sure it's not a surprise most of you listening but Yeah they don't read the bills they don't read the bills. Have whatever whatever. If we're like now i was gonna say i was gonna make. What was the guy grandma agreement. Wormtongue whispering introvert ear. Yes pass this. We're going to give you ten million your account if you do if you don't if you refuse will tell it to child pornography and then they have to go into vendor like they throw bill in a trash i get. Well i doing it so they don't actually care right. It's not like some people like to say vs evil. Sometimes i say yeah these evil bastards in congress but really i just greedy or cowardly. it does. it's mainly greed like some are pure evil right to ones who really really bad ones like hillary clinton or pure evil but most of them are just week. Greedy people there and it's the same with everywhere in the government. There's some people were just greedy and someone even stopping evil if that's a hope okay if You know. I know assholes in charge or probably listening to visit powers-that-be or whatever just going to i'm going to say this look you're you're gonna fail right your your system's going to collapse people aren't buying your bullshit anymore but we'll let you keep your stolen money right.

We were talking about job John mccain's recor track record at warmongering. I think warmongering is like sometimes. It's funny do it. It's like -ironically. But i think warmer more monitoring is like one of the grossest fucking thing someone could do and i was so it s part of the reason why i voted for trump. Because i knew. Hillary clinton was a war hawk and had the war hawks. War support pretty much and i was so disappointed when during the serious strike when the war hawks and you pretty much john mccain he. He's actually the leader. So hopefully you know the the neo. The end of chapter of a neo cons. Be back when i'd go to via gop club at On campus or like oh. Yeah you know isn't it. We should get ben shapiro to come here. And i'm like ben. Shapiro has never seen a war for that. He hasn't liked. And he. I remember i was What's the guy vox day. He used to work for world net daily and he said when ben shapiro was a writer. This time of the iraq war he was like. Oh yeah the. Us has to protect. Israel has to go to war and and did enlist right. And that's the thing about these warhawks most likely they. I've never served if they did serve as some cushy office position or you know chair force. Cushy i know cushy office position or inva- chair force not want to alienate. Anyway i come from a family of sailors and sailors and infantryman so anyways one say not going to not gonna get into that but yeah you know. It's like oh yeah. We need to send everyone else's children to war. Oh no not our children vail ivory. Ob a be safe in israel or if you know part of the apec or are they'll be safe at georgetown university or harvard or whatever. While these poor dumb redneck hicks kids. Go out and die. And that's that's for attitude towards and it's terrible. And i mean i have nothing but contempt for these war hawks And you have a serious strike. I was like i was like all right. That's it you know. Trump is trump has done. You know i mean he's alienated. Everyone now is war but whatever it was a fluke let's call it a fluke for ever good he's on fuel economy and hopefully what he does the deep state. He always forgiven. Just don't do it again. All right here. We go syria. Another country on two thousand one list of course was syria. Now bush regime may have never gotten a chance to continue toppling mid-east countries thanks of a failure in iraq. The exposure of at war being sold on lies but mccain seemingly never lost sight of his hatred for allah saad shortly after the arab spring quote broke out was inspired by us intelligence in syria mccain and his constant partner in war crime puck partner in war crimes. Senator lindsey graham who. I was thinking of quickly found communicate. And you know it's funny. How these war hawks are such pansies. Senator senator lindsey graham. It sounds like he sounds like he could audition for female. Part in a streetcar named desire tennessee williams joke knowing gets a good lindsey. Graham quickly found communication channels with syrian opposition just a few short months after. Us endorsed protests in syria. Even having very ambassador ten mccain and graham began calling for arms to start flowing to free syrian army and other quote rebel groups. Yeah i remember the time versus a picture of john mccain with a bunch of syrian rebels and like the picture that picture you in the picture of a guy. He's shaking his hand with like a few months. Later was shown some isis propaganda video as a members like a leader or something. And it's just so so transparent. He could've libya mccain's plans for syria. Never quite worked the way he wanted to wanted but he probably should have no he probably should have no typos. Everybody's you know see t. Typos are a bipartisan problem. Typos transcend politics. Should have no never fucker. I don't want an ad on here. Should should have known they would excuse me they. They would never yield a positive result if mccain didn't want to look at iraq to prove that point he had another more recent example. He could've used nato intervention in libya. You talk about the phrase bombing a place back to stone age. I mean like you know. I mean it's pro- problematic to you know. Speak in terms of lesser of two evils. But at least when get off he was in power. You know people weren't being like people weren't being sold as slaves as was back in the ottoman empire like for real it. It's a hell hole there. Anyone who's responsible for the libya intervention right like for facilitating. It probably has a one way ticket to hell unless they repent. You have a way of probably. Won't they've made so they made so much money. Off of it anyway probably. They'll probably do it again. In a heartbeat year before mccain wanted to arm syrian tack theories that he had supported with a bombing no fly zones in libya mccain even wanted tougher actions against country which bomb it back to stone age and is still isn't enough forum which which has now become an anarchy anarchic wild west. It's home to all sorts of horrors from state to a new slave trade west and central africa mccain is also a champion of the war on terror and over parts of africa while mccain hasn't directly supported terrorists in some country is in some countries in africa. He still has called for us. Intervention across the continent this list includes countries dealing with islamic insurgency such just molly mccain has also called for plans like quote deploying special forces to rescue girls kidnapped by boko haram in nigeria and intervention in sudan where mccain and his wife hasn't been where mccain and his wife have invested money for some time. Well there you go. Br michelle obama says bring back our girls mccain says. Let's bring back some dollar some blood money. Some blood diamonds iran. And you a whole kony twenty twelve. I'll save that for a future episode iran. Another country on the list of hated nations originally put forth by bush under secretary of defense paul wolfowitz and also never longtime target of mccain is of course iran although mccain has always has always said he quote praise for will never be a war with iran. The this guy doesn't believe in god he believes in the guy of his. God has a pair of horns. On his head. An pitchfork. And i'm sure he's meeting him real soon. The man constantly calls for it and even about bombing country. When he feels a mood is right. The truth of the matter is mccain's positions towards iran are so hot salvage even flagship neoconservative institutions like the cato institute. Dinkiest hawkish jesus list okay. All right i'll do. I'll do this. I can get this bosnia and kosovo but mccain isn't satisfied with just backing salafi jihadists in traditional mill middle east north african theaters. He's also backed violent radicals across the fringes of europe. This trend really start in the mid. Nineteen ninety s when mccain was a vocal supporter of bill clinton's warren bosnia many muslims travelling to bosnia joint. Move jardine there have joined groups like us. In recent years and i s flags have occasionally seen in sunni areas of bosnia now mccain was still backing potential tech fear movements recently accusing russia of interfering in local fairs and cause a calling for more. Us intervention in the country. And yeah i hold the pba. I also hold the people of arizona responsible for this war and chaos and terror. John mccain's 'cause because he's dumb asses voted for him for fucking decades. Thank thank god. Brain cancer is now john mccain free i i feel sorry for brain cancer because john mccain gave it a giant never. It's going to be associated with john mccain forever mccain may mccain made it's like problem reaction solution right you know he starts they to for like we got we got to invade this place sarah v serbs or killing the muslim bosnians invade. They've they've just wrecked the whole fucking country than a few years later. Oh my god we got. We got invade those crazy. Muslims are crash planes into our buildings. Like what do you didn't earn it. All we got to invade same crazy buzzer creating isis. And it's like. Oh gee well you know who's responsible for all this who was so people who is accountable the media the voters and anyone who has. I can't blame him because Because they have the What's the memory of gop. They don't care. sorry i'll got finishes here mccain has made similar decisions when when he advocate. Us intervention kosovo in the late night ninety s because of a conflict mccain back because of all liberation army a genocide jihadist organization ties to al qaeda under osama bin laden ukraine. Don't be fooled into thinking. That mccain only supports jihadists in eastern europe though he also be overt nazis. He's an equal opportunity warmonger acting as death squads for caveney ongoing ukrainian conflict. I didn't even get to russia. North korea oh and china's a bonus. Why not why not to over millet nuclear power. He's all right everyone. This is thanks so much for listening to it's been is so great to be back here. You go here's some music is so great to be back. I hope you learned a lot about john mccain. I sure as hell did and the more i learn about him but more. I'm glad that he's finally gone wherever wherever he may. God have mercy on his so all right. Everyone checks see all next week. It's great to be back as this for all right.

Now that customers are coming back next week. Marks the seventy fifth anniversary of the atomic bombings of harare shema and nagasaki japan. Some of the scientific work that led to developing the bomb took place in chicago although not many knew about it at the time secrecy was something that was drilled in into everyone's minds who worked on the manhattan project find out more about the role the state played and giving the world bomb. That's ahead on stateline. Statewide is brought to you by.

I'm shawn crawford on the wave. Restaurants are now offering indoor dining once again but those who work in those businesses. Say they have some concerns about the risk to their health will also find out about his role in the manhattan project and more than a decade since it was retired here by university of illinois as mascot chief align weck won't go away at least for some that and more this hour on statewide i this week. The pandemic has changed a lot of summer plans for college. Students like internships travel jobs keep mcgee with. Wbz tells us how some students are still trying to make the most of their summer rice university student. Kathleen matthews had big plans. This summer she was going to spend eight weeks in argentina studying public health and working in a clinic then she was heading to israel for a traditional birthright trip for young jewish adults. All of that was canceled. Due to the novel coronavirus. She moved back in with her parents. In chicago's lincoln park neighborhood so instead i took Calculus to definitely a bummer cove in nineteen cancelled. Many internships study abroad opportunities and typical funds. Summer plans as colleges worry how the pandemic will affect fall enrollment schools in illinois have seen a bump in summer enrollment compared to last year as students to turn lemons into some kind of lemonade the university of illinois at urbana-champaign and the university of illinois at chicago both saw summer enrollment numbers jumped twenty five and twenty seven percent respectively from last summer. Alina callous is an incoming freshman at loyola university. Chicago decided to get a headstart in take online classes this summer to get some of her general courses out of the way especially double majoring. I would have to do a little bit more work and just thinking of the future. I want to study abroad. And things like that. And i just wanna make time loyola and other local private universities say they've seen an increase in summer enrollments to for those lucky enough to keep their internships. It's now from the comfort of their homes. Indiana resident joe grazziano says when the pandemic initially hit lots of friends saw summer internships. They'd secured in the fall cancelled and he was worried. His paid internship with the risk management company. A on would be too. He plays baseball for butler university and dedicated previous summers to baseball heading into senior year. His resume was pretty thin. So i kind of really needed this. I'm not gonna lie got cancelled. My resume would have been like baseball club. Not very filling a on depends heavily on its interns traditionally. They hire nearly two-thirds every year permanently so they mailed laptops home for interns and integrated them into teams who are also working. Virtually due to the pandemic they've also been assigned group projects with other interns to help improve the company internally. Grazziano says he misses the in person interaction. It's difficult to make a good impression remotely there. There's a lie you can get from even just small talk at the officers and sometimes via 'cause it's kinda hard to like to get across my personality as i want to. I don't know it's like hard to like urged. Trae myself to you and video. Still he feels lucky to earn a paycheck this summer. So does nineteen year. Old manny gonzalez. Who is studying computer. Science and engineering at herald was in college in downtown chicago. He was involved with the group. Genesis works in highschool which helps students in underinvested communities connect with employers for job and internship opportunities. He was able to quit an overnight job at ups and start working at data analytics company downtown. Which he's continued remotely throughout the pandemic guaranteed income. That's also helping him build toward his career. I honestly feel like unlucky because you know not everybody gets this opportunity especially at my age adding like these big corporate companies on my resume at my age. So it's like you know it's a blessing but even with his job. he's being extra productive this summer. He's tacked on two summer classes so he can finish his associates degree early and transfer to a four year to earn a bachelor's kate. Mickey wbz news in may the department of education made sweeping changes to title nine regulations. Peter madeleine with w j reports on how colleges and universities are coming to terms with new policies. many advocates in school officials. Say he'll reporting. The new regulations changed the definition of what qualifies as sexual harassment under title nine to meet the new standard harassment must be quote severe pervasive and objectively offensive. She wa patel is the director of justice for students survivors at the national women's law center. So these rules kind of in total religious just turned nine on its head as civil rights law says they raised the threshold of what schools can choose to ignore and it's a departure from guidance. That's been in place for around twenty years. If a student isn't being outright denied equal access to a program or activity that might not be enough so that means some states would be forced to endure repeated an escalating levels of abuse before they can get help. The new rules also require institutions of higher learning to dismiss reports of harassment. Happened off campus. Now they'd have to put together a separate sexual misconduct policy to apply to those situations. This has ramifications for online harassment. Too especially as many schools move to more virtual instruction during the pandemic faith. Ferber is a student engagement organizer with no. You're nine she says if someone's harassing you in a class zoom meeting that would be covered but if someone is sexually harassing you over facebook and then you have to see them in zoom classroom. That wouldn't necessarily be covered a northern illinois university title nine coordinator. Sarah gardner says they do have procedures to help students. We had the opportunity to see okay. Even though it doesn't reach this level of conduct how we can address it as university but as faith ferber says the problem. Is that places like i. You could ignore those cases that they choose to and she says the education department isn't there to protect students either. We can't count on our schools. We can't count on the government so all we can count on. Is students in student. Power to really make a difference. In holder schools account law at nyu students held protests. Last year on the basis of the university was mishandling investigations and the process was slow and apathetic. The university hired another coordinator and garner says. They're much better equipped to handle their case load now. The new regulations are over two thousand pages. Two thousand thirty three to be exact and the policies themselves fit into the last thirty pages or so the reason. The document is so long as so that the department of education headed by betsy. Devos is trying to justify why the chains are needed and respond to public comments. She wally patel says there were more than a hundred thousand comments. Mostly opposing the new rules. They were school principal. There were mental health. Experts over nine hundred trauma. Facialists joined a letter and raised concern about the rule so the significant opposition and yet they continue to move forward sir garner and you were one of the many schools that senate comments. Unfortunately not many concerns made it into the final regulations patel says the provisions were largely unchanged from what was proposed but there were also a few changes that weren't even in the proposed rule so they didn't have a chance to comment. One example is that colleges and universities are now barred from dealing with complaints by people who aren't actively participating in an education program and that means a school won't be allowed to investigate a complaint of sexual harassment if the survivor already graduated or they transferred. Or let's say they dropped out of school because they were sexually assaulted. And they don't plan to re enroll and colleges could dismiss cases when the respondent who's being accused isn't enrolled or employed by the school. But tell that could include professor. Who retires or who resigns after abuse comes alight another change. That wasn't included originally reiterates that the department's guidelines supersede any state law and some of the new title and changes are in conflict with illinois state law one forces those going through an investigation to undergo cross-examination in a live hearing and as sarah gardner says we have a state law. That says you cannot cross. Examine one another the permission sexual violence higher education act however now the federal regulations you must cross examine each other in public comment stated this quote turn educational centers into courts of law and allow for parties to be subjected to quote demeaning inappropriate and irrelevant probing there waiting for the illinois attorney. General kwami raoul to weigh in he along with seventeen other attorneys. General is suing the education department to block the final rules from going into effect garner. Says they'll find out if they have to proceed with the guidance. On august fourteenth there are countless other issues advocates. Say make the process more difficult for the people involved and for the school conducting the investigation and peter mullen the former university of illinois. Men's basketball coach lou hinson has died. He was eighty eight. He coached illinois from nineteen seventy five through nineteen ninety-six is four hundred twenty three wins or the most in program history back in two thousand. Fifteen hinson spoke with member station w. i l. l. and he talked about being offered as first head coaching job at hardin simmons university in texas in the early nineteen sixties. And i said well. I have one thing that bothers me and i'll probably accept his job but you'd have to do one thing that i tend to agree to tame i've had black. I coach black players all the time. And not gonna tote coach. A total white tame henson led illinois to the ncaa final four in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and a big ten championship in one thousand nine hundred four. He was inducted into the national collegiate basketball hall of fame in two thousand fifteen. That was the same year. The floor at the state farm center was named lou hinson court in his honor. The thirteen years after the university of illinois at urbana-champaign retired their native american themed mascot. The image continues to pop up everywhere and there is some support to bring it back. The mascot officially retired in two thousand seven after decades of calls to get rid of the character lee gains with illinois. Newsroom has this report on february. Twenty first two thousand seven. Thousands of people watched as a white man dressed in native american regalia danced high-kicked and jumped across the university of illinois at urbana-champaign basketball court. While a marching band played he wore a feather headdress and blue orange and white face paint as the performance came to a close. The crowd cheered and had tears streaming down their faces walks off the court for the last time the university of illinois the event was bent should be the end of a tradition which dates back to nineteen twenty six and it came decades of calls for the university to retire the race based mascot but some traditions. Don't die easy today. Thirteen years after chief. Elena weck was officially retired by the u. of i the symbol indoors. People dress like the mascot still pop up at games. There are facebook groups with thousands of members calling on the university to reinstate the mascot and merchandise with chief allina x image is still sold. I'm not certain that the university can move beyond she for lying awake anytime soon. That's matthew sokaiya stuart gilbert. He spent thirteen years as an american indian studies. Professor at the u. Of i and now heads the department of american indian studies at the university of arizona. Sokaiya stuart gilbert saw chief. Elena weck perform at a football game in two thousand six. A woman next to him asked what he did then she asked if he was an indian and i said i'm hopi indian from northeastern arizona. And i i always remember what she told me she says. Why don't you go down there and be the chief and you know and then everything will be okay. By that time. The chief had become an extremely divisive issue on campus. The university was fighting to retain the mascot while the nc double a. was pressuring institutions to get rid of racist native american imagery. Debbie ries is a pueblo indian who taught at the university at that time. She's an expert in native american imagery in children's literature. Reese remembers protesting the chief outside football and basketball games lewd goto silent protests at the games. Where you do put yourself at risk of being spat upon of being yelled at of being cursed at those. Were always very uncomfortable things but we felt important so we did them re says the chief is a misrepresentation of native people the honoring that people say they do with mascots. Like this is not honor. Earning it's integrating it's demeaning and it's an insult. The intent of chief. Alana work was always to was to hold a culture in reverence encouraging. People to learn about it then maloney was the last person to officially portrayed chief elena whack on that university of illinois basketball court back in february two thousand seven. He was a graduate student then. Maloney says the reverence chief fans have for the character is one of the reasons it has endured long past. Its official retirement. When that's removed especially when it's such a a strong source of inspiration to many many people over many many years it can be tough to tough to to move forward and many who oppose the chief say. The university is to blame for its continued presence because nothing ever replaced it. It's basically for a lot of people still the mascot of the university of illinois. that's vikram sardana. He graduated from the u. of i. Last year and he served on a commission intended to heal the chief align awake divide sardana says the university should have created a new mascot years ago and i think that the lesson people should take from. This is that not acting can make a problem worse than it needs to be to at some point. You have to rip the band aid off a spokesperson for the university of illinois at urbana-champaign says that administrators are working on a plan to move the campus forward which will include a process to establish new traditions. But matthew sokaiya stuart gilbert is skeptical that a new mascot can end the years long controversy and he says that's because of all the alumni and fans who still cling to chief align wick. I think this will continue to be a controversy. This will continue to be a burden on the university especially the native students have to deal with this on a daily basis. We're enrolled at the university. Kaya stuart gilbert says time may prove to be the ultimate solution that chief align awake problem as years. Go by there will be fewer people who remember when a white man in a feather headdress and face paint danced across the university's basketball courts and football fields at halftime. I'm lee gains staying on the sports team. The head of the illinois high school association says much of the upcoming sports season remains fluid as it tries to protect against the spread of covid nineteen executive director. Craig anderson says the i jesse has moved football boys soccer and girls volleyball from the fall to the spring. The says of covid cases rise in the fall more sports could get shifted to the spring and winter. sports could be put in jeopardy. We'll stay with us next on statewide. You might be itching to go somewhere after months of staying at home. Have some tips for staying safe if you decide to vacation during the pandemic back on statewide. I'm shawn crawford still to come as we. Near the seventy fifth anniversary of the atomic bombs being dropped on japan will learn more about the work done in illinois that changed the world forever after spending months isolated in homes. Some are wondering if it's possible to take a vacation safely. During the pandemic shayla zahn spoke with an infectious disease specialist. Dr cristella budo about ways to stay safe. During the summer travel season. It's inevitable that psychologically people are tired. it's only natural to want to get away and go out. The first step is really homage risk. Am i willing to tolerate in that. Has to do with our own health conditions but also the health conditions of the people around us so even if we get sick in we have mild you know. Coal symptoms in in muscle aches and we get better gain. We potentially take that back to somebody who may Note facial well so based on what we know now about the virus. Are there some forms of travel. That are safer than others like. Is it safer to drive somewhere. Instead of flying. I don't know that we can easily say one is less risky. It's young environment really. That determines that goes if you're going to do a road trip for example in have a bunch of other people with you in a car then defeats the purpose and i know for example when we talk about flying a lot of airline companies actually most of them have had requirements in place for mask wearing and digital health screening but the risk of flying with people that we don't know is higher than the risk of driving in a car with people that we do that we live with a lot of families are planning to take road trips this summer. What kinds of precautions should they take. If they're really going to please has lower keys is to make sure that they know taking the infection with them so one of the best ways to do that. Ease the two weeks prior to travelling making should that they themselves aren't in themselves as much as possible so watching whether they're going staying in close quarters as much as possible to a gain. Avoid the risk of getting infected in taking that infection where the the shorter is you. Have to travel debater. Especially if you are familiar with young children you have to think about rest stops. You have to think about how he no bathroom breaks in where you're going to be taking those and also stopping to eat right. Can you bring your own food. Potentially all limit yourself to drive the muzo out door spaces onboard. What i sees really for families traveling in how many stocks they have to make along the way again increasing the chances of them getting exposed to individuals who may be infected that they can keep track of time. What about hotels. I've heard some recommendations that you should be sanitizing things and stripping off the comforter when you arrive because it's less likely to be washed you know what about that so i would definitely recommend wiping down. Commonly used surfaces like doorknobs are always something that touched counters species hike surfaces Should be cleaned other things. That people may forget you. Kleenex owns that. Conclusively face tv remotes. Also something that people don't think about as far as the bedspread. I don't know that. I have personally seen evidence that bathing all cotton fabric surfaces routine device. But i do all surfaces. Hard surfaces in highly took office. Is that something that can be cleaned in. Wipe down to limit the exposure to risk. We've seen cases increasing again across the country. Is that something that people should be thinking about when they're deciding when or where to travel definitely. Look at being flexible in your timeline inflexible in your potential final destination. Avoiding a busy places crowded places especially places that have the of the ridge. Going higher would be recommended at this point. The things that i've seen a woeful people a easy if you can do more secluded areas so for example going to small resorts cabin in the woods or things like that and where that none only popular destinations. All that this initial that don't cater to thousands of people. That's dr cristello budo and she spoke with lafarge on. You might wonder why could take a while to get your covid. Nineteen test results governor jb. Pritzker says the state has done a good job at increasing the number of tests being performed. But he says he's worried about the laboratory capacity to analyze those tests the points out illinois has only three state run labs which can handle about six to eight thousand tests per day since about forty thousand tests are being performed on a daily basis commercial labs. Both in and out of states are being utilized at labs across the nation there only so many machines. They're only so many technicians who can run those machines for so many hours during the day. Pritzker says commercial labs are being overwhelmed with test from states that have seen big spikes in corona virus cases. The end result could be longer wait times for results which the governor points out will make it harder to determine outbreaks and take quick action support for statewide comes from aarp illinois providing information to help you and your family as the corona virus continues to affect us all and keep us apart or information at aarp dot org slash near you. Next week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of atomic bombs being dropped on japan. It's one of the most controversial decisions in. Us history research that resulted in the weapons of mass destruction took place at several locations but chicago became one of the main science centers. I spoke with writer. Terry mcclellan mcandrew about the work done in the state and the reasons chicago was a manhattan project site while there are several reasons one was it was the home of arthur. Holly compton who was a physicist who was already working on some of this chicago is also seen as centrally located in the country. So that other manhattan project scientists around the country could access it fairly readily also the university of chicago approved of being a manhattan project site and supported it. This work going on people unaware of it in a very busy location in a major city seems dangerous. It does doesn't it. It was a secret project and secrecy was something that was drilled in to everyone's minds who worked on the manhattan project there have been some oral histories taking of people who worked on the project. And one was of william. Jane nicholson who helped. Create the pile as it was called. That was what became the nuclear reactor that developed the first self sustaining nuclear reaction at the university of chicago and he talks about this need for secrecy and how it was drilled into all of the staff there there were known agents of the german government in and around the university of chicago and we were told that and that We were not to reveal anything of what you do. Don't take up with strangers Sandwich someplace or beer or whatever Watch out that people who may engage in conversation would be damaging to the war effort and that a they may actually be the enemy so one huge question that comes up about this manhattan project site at the university of chicago in the in the middle of this metropolitan side is we're danger. Was there a danger to the university of chicago illinois. Even the mid west region and the physicists. I spoke to said in essence the nuclear reactor that the scientists were developing at. The chicago at chicago was a very low powered in comparison to what we see today at most it could have powered a two hundred watt lightbulb. Therefore it was not putting out the kind of radiation that one of our nuclear reactors today could could do in there for the harm was not significant. Now there was some danger to the people who were in the room where that nuclear reactor was working one of the dangers. Although the scientists in charge had done innumerable calculations to make sure the danger was very small. There was still worried that the nuclear reactor could get out of control and they took protection against that and they had what they called the suicide squad two to three men who stood atop the nuclear reactor with the cadman solution so that in case it did run away and start to melt down. They would pour this over the pile and hopefully it would stop but as scientists told me the suicide squad would not live. Tell about it. The first nuclear reaction took place there and it was momentous you know especially when you think about it in terms of what would come later but at the time from what i read in your story to those folks was sorta matter-of-fact. It was a big deal. But their reaction was a bit anti-climactic they basically broke out a bottle of chianti and all signed the basket that the bottle of chianti was in. That was pretty much it. The physicists i talked to said that the lead scientists on the reactor enrico fermi was so sure he had done endless calculations he carried his slide rule around with him for those who don't know what a slide rule is. That was your pre computer calculator in the days and he carried that around with him he did endless calculations to make sure he knew what was going to happen with this nuclear reactor and so it went exactly as planned and in essence wallet was an enormous event. It changed our lives. It changed science and international relations forever. The scientists there just pretty much congratulated each other and broke out a bottle. The scientists concerned about the the use of this technology going forward. I mean from the time they were working on this had they had some idea in their mind that they could be unleashing something that they will never be able to put back in the bottle so to speak the folks. I talked to said that the scientists of course are smart people. These were literally some of the greatest brains of the twentieth century. Scientists at the top of their field. They knew the potential of the science that they were working on and they did. They know immediately that they were working on a bomb. It's kind of unclear. They certainly became aware of it as their work. Went on during the manhattan project And after it became clear that there would be bombed developed from their work. Some of them became very concerned about that some of the chicago scientists especially and they developed the bulletin of the atomic scientists of chicago to work on trying to control the use and thoughts and opinions about this new power. They had unleashed after the matlab in chicago achieved its goals of creating plutonium and creating the first self sustaining nuclear reactor. Both of which were for developing atomic bombs for the war purpose on some of the scientists continued the work on the possibilities of this new nuclear power specifically some of the peaceful purposes of it and they continued that work at argonne national laboratory in lamont which still exists still works today. We talked about the concerns that something could go wrong possibly may be dangerous to people around it at the same time. There is also concerns that the germans especially would find out that this work was being done there in chicago could become a target during the war that That is something that was drilled into people as well yes in fact some of the chicago. Scientists working on the manhattan project were refugees from fascist europe and i spoke to physicist. Who wrote a book related to the manhattan project. And he talks about how they had feared that the nazis would bomb chicago specifically because of the work in because of the refugees there. Here's physicist stanley word. They folk quite rightly basically wanted to kill them. I find it interesting. Little in the are gone. Archive many years ago was set in effect. Of course the germans must know. We're here so when they haven't atomic bomb the first one they'll drop will be on chicago. That was the risk that they foresaw To chicago area that the germans drop atomic bomb on so we knew that people high up in the military guessing would have known about all of this work and in the president administration. Maybe would have known about what was happening here. Did everybody at the university of chicago. Even the administration there what was taking place. The manhattan project was extremely secret. Ultra secret I read in one place. That even truman didn't know about it which i have a hard time believing that congress didn't know about it again. I haven't verified in the big question even today is did the university of chicago president robert hutchins know what was going on in his own backyard almost literally beneath his football stadium and it sounds like there's a lot of disagreement about that now i have since read. The robert maynard hutchins a memoir by milton mayor and he says he absolutely knew about it but was very was under instructions that when he told his deans and trustees number one he could not even mention the word uranium that when they asked him if there was any danger to the university or city he said unlikely but he couldn't he couldn't rule it out. Now here's what a physicist at the university of chicago current physicist whom i interviewed said about whether or not he thinks the president knew though it was only three blocks from his house two blocks from his house. Historians can debate. It sure you knew about just couldn't officially know about it. Because you can't i said you can't ask. Can i make a nuclear chain reaction on your campus in the middle of the city. That physicist is dr henry fresh and historians very interesting because he is literally a los alamos baby. His parents worked on the los alamos project. And that's where he was born. Today there is monument. That's at that site that recognizes that work talk about that and is it something that people on the campus. A lot of attention to were remember that this took place there. Is this just something of the past that people have mostly forgotten. That's a great question. Yes there was a sculpture placed atop the site where the nuclear iraq reactor was. It's right next to this beautiful new library. They have and the sculpture is very abstract. Looks like a nuclear mushroom cloud. Some people says it looks like the human brain. I think that was intentional. On the sculptors part. And when i interview dr henry frisch again a physicist currently at the university of chicago and literally a los alamos baby himself. His parents worked at los alamos. He said that the university of chicago has kind of split feelings about being the site of the first self sustaining nuclear reactor in the world He says that they have celebrated the seventy fifth anniversary of that nuclear reactor going critical but that there are some people who feel very uncomfortable about it because of of course how that power ended up being used and what has done today to our international relations and potential war. That's writer terry mclaughlin mcandrew. You can read her story about the role illinois played in the manhattan project. That's available at her website. Statewide show dot com. Stay with us for more of statewide coming up. What it's like to be a contact tracer that's on the way this statewide. I'm shawn crawford still tagami. You might have concerns these days about going into a restaurant to eat what turns out a lot of restaurant. Workers have concerns as well. We'll hear from some of them. That story is on the way last week. We told you about the reverend c t vivian. Who recently died. Mccomb paid its final respects to the civil rights leader who grew up in the western illinois. He was ninety five ritukar. Has this report on the local memorial service more than one hundred people attended the outdoor service held on a hot and muggy july afternoon. Dr j. q adams was the featured speaker. He's a former professor at western illinois university and he conducted several lengthy interviews with vivian. Atoms were counted one of vivians best-known moments from the american civil rights movement. Vivian was in selma alabama in one thousand nine hundred sixty five to push for voting rights. He was stopped on the steps of the dallas county. Courthouse by sheriff. Jim clark who punched vivian. In the face in front of reporters and protesters. We still see you struck in bloodied. Knock to your knees and we still see you. Rise up not with contempt. But with love. Because ct says it takes radical love to overcome radical evil and says he visited with vivian. Three years ago he says right up to the end the reverend's passion for the civil rights struggle remained alive and well the service took place at the site of ct. Vivians boyhood home. The ladder is now vacant. Though there are plans to build a center of civic and social engagement as well as a small park at the location recor reporting the federal government has paid billions of dollars to keep the food chain running. That's included in part sending direct payments to farmers and ranchers but as dana cronin reports for harvest public media. Not all farmers are seeing those benefits. When you walk into cindy ashes. Barn one of the first things you notice. Besides the sheep is a huge burlap sack practically bursting at the seams with mall. You look at that big bag right there sitting out about six hundred pounds of wool from when they were sure last. And that's been there. Since they were shared in march ashrams jubilee farms in clinton illinois where she grows fruits and vegetables and raises sheep for wool to be turned into yarn but not many people are buying premium yarn in this economy. Not to mention the mill only recently reopened. But there's really no point in us paying thousands of dollars a process. Well that we can move right now so Which is part of what the cap was hoping to help. Cfa p that stands for corona virus food. Assistance program is run by the us department of agriculture. It's meant to bolster the food supply chain in part by providing sixteen billion dollars in direct payments to farmers and ranchers. But it hasn't been helpful to farmers like cindy ash at doesn't seem like the program was designed for produce farmers It seems like the program was really designed for corn and soybean or large livestock producers. And we are. We don't do any of that. In addition to wool ash usually sells produce at the local farmers market which was closed this year due to the krona virus so she was hopeful until she opened up the assistance application.
