There's no other way to put I like how you put a giant getting comfortable over 2000. Technically that I think that Sita John, it's a very good thanks for that so hard for that, you know, on the edge of Chris for own right now, and he is encyclopedic so we can go on this tack. Kevin Surreally, a chief Washington correspondent. Not on JetBlue, not on the fancy names that are out there, but the distance between Glen Thompson and Connor Lam Kevin, you know these air to congressman from Pennsylvania and I'm going to guess they're scared stiff. What is Glen Thompson, the moderate Republican, telling his Republicans What does Connor Land the moderate Democrat, telling Speaker Pelosi GT is saying essentially that he is going to be able to deliver toe Happy Valley and State College, the type of economic relief that many higher education institutions are needing. Right now. He is a moderate Republican, but he's also in the backyard of Penn State University. So he's one of those lawmakers who is heavily influenced by the battles of Higher education in rural communities become S O. I don't mean to interrupt, but this is absolutely critical. What is the urgency of Glen Thompson? Now to go over the leader McConnell and say, grow up and get this done. It's incredibly incredibly urgent because because for these rank and file members for Connor lab specifically who was going who at one point was hailed as the future of the Democratic Party, and by all accounts, according to sources I talked with has a bright political future ahead of him. He has to be able to go back to these battleground districts. That on DH say that they're providing economic relief. Not for big business is not for Wall Street but for the small businesses in their backyard. And that's why you're seeing the shift in tone coming from leadership yesterday, Tom a CZ president, Trump has suggested that he's going to have to use executive power in order to go around some of the stalemates coming from the halls of Congress. We can get into those executive powers in just a moment. Here's a line for you. If you look for total consensus among Senate Republicans, you're not Going to find it. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell what and who the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, turn his back on in the next few days. I think at this point from leader McConnell's perspective, he is dug in on liability protections. I feel like a broken record when I continue to say that, but from that standpoint, he's also has to form a coalition. There is another remark that he made in those remarks yesterday. Jonathan, where he noted that 15 to 20 by his count by the leaders count 15 to 20. Republicans are not on board with these types of with with the with the Republican caucus. He can't deliver an entire caucus right now. So that's why these negotiations are even more crucial because when 15 to 20 members of the Republican caucus are saying that they have an issue with this type of stimulus They're nowhere near the type of unison that typically leader McConnell wants to see you. Kevin, the president, speaking opening now about going it alone flying solo executive action Political reporting in the last 24 hours, three options on the table for him. Delaying the collection of payroll taxes. He's been very out, spoken publicly about that, but also doing something conviction protection and then going even further extending enhanced unemployment benefits by using the money that Congress has been assigned to spend, but has not used yet. Kevin on those three issues right now. Is this ready? Doable? Yes, Andi. There's this great. This is great tool in the Bloomberg terminal where you can actually track based upon public data, where the money from the last stimulus has actually gone all throughout the country, And the reason I bring this up is because it really illustrates that it's not just cities that have benefited from this economic stimulus, and that's why you're hearing This change in tone coming from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue because they know that whether it's in it's in it's in Centre County, Pennsylvania, where Congressman Thompson and represents or in the Bronx that you're seeing individuals and constituents take advantage. Not I don't want to take advantage, but but but utilize The access to capital that has been made available to them. That's not a Republican or a democratic advantage. And that's why the president is trying to specifically say that if these blue collar workers can't get access to those funds that he's gonna have to use executive order, while leader McConnell and the Speaker Pelosi continue to work out a deal, $600 enhance unemployment benefit that President Trump is throwing his weight behind extending is really significant because it flies against Calls of some Republicans in particular that have become fiscal hawks. I'm wondering President Trump not known as being a fiscal hawk by any stretch of the imagination is he lining up in some ways more on the Democratic side. On this particular issue. You are absolutely correct. There are many Republicans, whether it's senator Ted Cruz, for example, who are incredibly, incredibly uncomfortable with getting on board with this type of spending on. In fact, leader McConnell has said that he believes those arguments are justified but in terms of where the president is going He has to go on the campaign trail and is fighting for a tough, tough reelection battle. And he's got to be able to go to many of these states. So workers who are unable to find work right now or unable to get back into the economy through no fault of their own, given the pandemic, and he's got to be able to look them in the eyes and say, vote for me again and so in order for him to do that. This is the type of economic relief that is needed. Kevin just quickly some clarity on an important thing for people outside the United States. Not following this. How many fiscal hawks in the Senate right now are actually standing for election this November. I would..

"Democrats took control of the House and Bennie Thompson took control of the Homeland Security Committee and Eynulla. Advocate chairman. We held the here. And it was only in this hearing. That members of Congress in the public get a chance to see in here for the first time. What was going on? This hearing and other Democrat lead oversight hearings got the FBI to finally acknowledge the serious threat of white supremacy terrorism. They said that could racially motivated. Violent extremism was now as big. A THREAT IS ISIS. But these hearings didn't turn up a lot of details on exactly what the FBI was doing to deal with that threat on the ground like the number of. Cases or, arrests. So I asked the FBI agent in charge of counterterrorism for the Newark. Field Office Joe Dennehy and I think there's really been a surge in what we assess as as racially motivated violent extremism, both here in New Jersey and across the nation I think a lot of the profiles of the subjects we're. We have seen conduct successful tax her younger males. All of them really radicalized online. Now that the velocity of those threats and successful tax appears to be increasing. We obviously dedicate greater number of resources to that threat when when you talk about that dedicating a greater number of resources. Can you share anything in the way of numbers something to kind of concretely get a sense of what that looks like. Unfortunately I can't give any specifics on that on in terms of our. Personnel or assets, but I can tell you that there's a tremendous emphasis. Put on this We recognize that the threat is evolving and moving with it no question about it. And just to be clear. Why is it that you can't give more details on that? You know. I'm not comfortable talking about. The number of agents that we have working a specific threat. So no numbers and then there's the term itself racially motivated violent extremism. Why call it that Are we primarily talking about white supremacy terrorism? Me No question that. White, racially motivated. Extremism is a very serious problem. Well what else fits into that What he isn't saying is the whole point of the term. Racially motivated violent extremism is that they are not just talking about white supremacists who've been responsible for more plots and attacks in the last few years than any other kind of terrorist in our database. What happened was in two thousand seventeen. An F.. B. I. Document was leaked to Foreign Policy magazine about something. They called black identity extremists. The FBI defined them as anyone using violence quote in response to perceived racism and injustice in American society in particular police brutality. Former FBI agent Mike German, said basically, it's black. People who scare them. When Congressman Thompson heard about it, not from the FBI, but from reading about it in the press. He wondered if it was really about countering terrorism at all. You know I went through co Intel pro.

"Of all Americans. Let me now you to my friend at his thing was gentle lady from Florida, Debbie, so Powell. News conference earlier today on Capitol Hill WCS PFM, Washington. Thank you, Representative Jeffries Representative Clark for bringing this issue to light and helping lift the voices of Americans impact in by the gun violence pedantic in this country as some of you may already know this is a very personal issue for me as well. I am never going to forget the day that I received the phone call when I was twenty four years old telling me that my father was shot and killed by criminal with a gun. Unfortunately, thousands of Americans in this country. Now share the same story as mine the pain that I feel when we discuss this issue here today when I hear the news of the mass shootings in parkland. Orlando Aurora last week is still there. This is a real she spent radio programming from Tuesday WC SPF from Washington. And I remember my father always talking to me about when he would walk me down the aisle. And I will never forget that he was not there that day. When I took the oath of office. I made a promise that I would not stop until we finally passed commonsense. Gun reform, I owed that promise to my father and to so many families in my community who have lost loved ones to gun violence this week. We will be voting on. And it is my hope that we will pass to critical pieces of commonsense. Gun reform legislation HR eight and HR eleven twelve we all know that most Americans over ninety five percent of Americans support universal background checks in my district. We have some of the highest rates of gun violence for kids under the age of eighteen and we also have two of the largest gun shows in America HR, eight addresses that issue and it closes that gun show loophole. If these bills can save precious lives from being the next victims of gun violence. Then the effort is well worth it. We made a promise to the American people to make our communities safer, and this is a promise fulfilled this week. Thank you. Debbie, and let me now yield to my friend man who has been a champion. For gun violence prevention here in the United States house of representatives of the lead sponsor of HR aid. Someone who has credibility on this issue given his service to this country. Given a district that he represents and his authentic commitment to making life better on the issue of gun violence. This thing was gentleman from California. Mike thompson. Well, thank you. Mr Chairman Madam vice chair, my two new colleagues who are just a wonderful bright spot in this new class in our new congress. Thank you for all the work that you're doing the commitment that you bring to this issue for the last six and a half years. I worked on the issue of expanding background checks before someone can buy a gun. It wasn't one day a week. It wasn't once in a while. It was part of every day for six and a half years for six and a half years. We had no cooperation from the past majority. We couldn't get a hearing on the Bill. We couldn't get a vote on the Bill today. We're here to tell you that it's a new day with this new majority. We have made a commitment to address the issue of gun violence. The first Bill that will be brought up HR eight I learned when it was in the judiciary committee when it passed. It was the first time that the judiciary committee has passed a gun violence prevention Bill of consequence in the last twenty six years. This is a big step to make sure that our communities are safer. Universal background checks will ensure that people that try and buy a gun will go through a background check. It's our first line of defense in making certain that people who wanna buy a gun and shouldn't have a gun. Don't get access to that firearm. This is important. We have two hundred and thirty two co authors is bipartisan, Democrats and Republicans and tomorrow will send that Bill with a strong vote to the United States Senate. And then all of the passion that are two new members talked about today, all of the young people across the country who don't want to be victims of gun violence, all of their parents who don't want their kids to be victims of gun violence. Everyone who has brought us to this point. Can then focus their attention on the Senate and make sure that. The will of the people is heard, and we get that Bill heard over on the Senate side. So thank you all for being here. Thank you. My colleagues for all that you've done to make this a reality. And back to the House Democratic caucus chair Kim Jeffries the gun violence epidemic in the United States of America. Is an actual national emergency. The days of this house burying its head in the sand are now over let me now open it up any questions. Two points of criticism. The other side always say about this is the first one they'll say look at high profile shootings in parkland or the attempts on Mr. scully's life. This would not have done anything to deter. Either of those incidences. And the second one is to say Republicans often identify background checks is being unenforceable with adding national gun registry. Those are the two points of criticism. Your opponents always would you be willing to address those concerns knowing that soon as we leave this event, if we talked to Republicans that's what we're going to be told. Sean, I'm going to yield to Mike Thompson in any of the other members who want to respond, but this is a important step in the right direction. It is a beginning to address a national epidemic with respect to gun violence in the United States of America. The overwhelming majority of the American people support universal criminal background check legislation because it's the right thing to do. We need to close the gun show loophole. We need to close the internet sale loophole. That's what we are doing. I'll just add that any time. The other side says that this isn't enforceable without a national registry. That's code word for they wanna do a national registry. And it's important to note. NHRA it specifies that there is nothing in this Bill that can be used to establish a national registry. And no they're wrong about that. Every day a hundred and seventy felons and fifty domestic abusers are stopped from buying a gun at licensed dealers because of the background check it works. We know it works. There's a lot of evidence out there that suggests that clarifies the fact that it works, and as far as anybody who says, well this Bill wouldn't have solved this this incident. The only thing that will solve everyone is to do away with guns. So are you telling me that the critics of my Bill wanna do away with all guns? I just want to address what we hear as well. That exactly what congressman Thompson just said that this idea that we should do nothing because no one Bill will prevent all gun violence is absurd. And we have to look no further than the band that Republicans upheld on research on how to best solve gun violence in this country. So if you were serious about this and feel that comprehensive background checks is not the answer. Then you would fund research into what is the correct answer. The hypocrisy is is so blatant here. And we cannot be afraid to take a step. We don't have the cure for any chronic disease at the beginning. But you do it by pieces and by research and. Developing. We know that background checks work. They keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. That's what we're going to be voting for this week. That's what the American people are asking congress today congresswoman Kathleen Clark, the House Democratic caucus vice chair. Do you support that want to see it come to the house floor? I.

The public assistance, the shared financial responsibility between the state, local and federal government and the individual assistance that will allow people to get the help they need to rebuild their home and to get back in their home. This is this is just a terrible situation in my county of lake. This is the fourth year in a row that we've had major forest fires and pe- people are devastated by this, and we really need the president to declare the disaster and to be forthcoming with. The all the federal resources are that we can muster. I know you and other lawmakers send the letter to the president. Today's go ahead. Have you heard anything back as of yet on it? I've been in contact with FEMA. We've been in contact with the White House. It's running its course, but the president could do a world of good by stepping it up and and making the declaration. Now there's a lot of lives depending upon this would make life much easier in these devastated areas, and folks really need the security of knowing that their federal governments with them. You know, one of the things the president has said about this and, and I'm wondering how concerned if you work concerned about what the president tweeted several several days ago that it was a lack of water is to blame the difficulty in containing the fires because every fire fish I've talked to said that that's simply not the case. It's not a problem of water. What we have the water that we need. And I, I'd really like that president and everybody else to stop tweeting and focus on the disaster at hand of folks in need, help. People need help. Our communities need help. And that's what we should be focusing on in in terms of your own district constituents. How are they doing tonight? Well, they're, they're doing a little better. People are re repopulated in their homes, but we still have a fire that is not contained. I won't be contained for another. Another month of is it's burning and we have a red flag warnings again tonight. And this could exacerbate the situation. And today we had another fire breakout in another part of my district in in Napa. So this is an ongoing threat. The fuel load is very, very heavy resources or stretch. We've got so many firefighters, so many aircraft and pieces of equipment out there. We really can't. We've really can't sustain a lot of this. We we, we need. We need the help from the federal government of the people that I represent one annot that their federal government is with them and will be with them through this terrible time. What's our thoughts and prayers are with not only. Affected by this fire, but all the men and women on the fire line who are working around the clock, your son is a firefighter who could be drawn up to deliver mutual aid if necessary. I mean, the firefighters just don't get enough credit and it's just it's extraordinary. What they're doing is working around the clock. So we, we appreciate you being on congressman Thompson. Thank you so much. Well, thank you and thank you for mentioned in the first responders. The community has been fantastic. First responders are real heroes and heroines. They're out there every day. Their life is on the line for their communities. Thank you. All right, comes from. We wishing to bass. The canoes.
