"38 now in Manassas, 41 at Metro Center, and our thermometer hasn't budged this morning. Still 39 degrees outside of our studios. It's 9 11. Now Congress is finally set to approve major coronavirus relief legislation Today after months of bitter political battles in negotiations, Joining us live now from Capitol Hill is W. T. O. P s Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller. It's what are some of the key components of this package. Now that they finally brought it over the finish line. Well, Bruce, as we've been reporting, the $600 direct payment goes to individuals, but it also includes $600 for a child. So that means $2400 for a family of four. Anyone making over $99,000 a year, however, will not get this check and it gets scaled down his earnings go up. Also, there's the $300 a week and unemployment benefits that will last through mid March. The original proposal had them lasting until April That could start just a few days after Christmas. It also extends the rental eviction and moratorium. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is on the floor now. She just praised that provision and says overall, this is a good bipartisan bill. One other thing, small businesses will be getting more funding through the paycheck protection program. Restaurants didn't get the direct aid that they had been lobbying for, but they will get some tax benefits. Was also a deduction for corporate business lunches. Some have criticized that is a remnant of the old three martini lunch, but supporters say it will help restaurants stay in business all right damage. Congress also has to approve a new new overall spending plan. Tell us about that. That's right. June just a mere $1.4 trillion, the annual budget for the fiscal year and one of the items getting most attention in this measure is the ban on surprise medical bills. This is something that has bipartisan support here. It has the backing of the White House. Many have complained for years about people with insurance still getting hit with massive medical bills after finding out they received out of network care. This calls for health insurance companies to negotiate billing disputes or have them brought to a mediator. Also on a separate topic, the spending measure has a lot of changes related to education. It would simplify the form for applying for federal student aid and expands the Pell Grant program to provide assistance for students with lower incomes. So how do we expect these votes to unfold today? Have members even seen a text of the bill yet? Well, that's the irony. Right. They have not. Bruce never say never with Congress, but it does look like these votes are going to move forward. We expect the house to begin votes around mid day after a variety of procedural activities. The package will actually be voted on in two blocks. The first part will be including funding for various agencies, including Homeland security. The Justice Department Defense Department of Second Package will include that $900 billion covert measure, So in a matter of hours today, lawmakers could approve more than $2 trillion worth. Assistance and programs. The Senate does have the potential to be held up if a senator brings up some last minute objections, But at this point, everyone does seem for the moment to be on the same page. And this being Congress lawmakers really want to leave Washington? Yes, just in the nick of time. W. T. O P is Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill? Thanks so much, Mitch?

The investigation found that their supervisor had actually violated Dodie memory regulations that Governor soldier political activities. The individual soldiers were not at fault for the mistake. The supervisor, on the other hand, was disciplined. And a week after the American Samoa incident advocates raise concerns again about the appearance of two uniformed Marines who appeared in a similar segment during the Republican National Convention.

That's the start of the year.

The Air Force Struggles With Diversity. Can The Space Force Do Any Better?
"The newest branch of the military just promoted its first female three star general. The US Space Force also recently appointed the nation's first all women space operations team. Top space force leaders say gender and racial diversity is a core part of the mission. But his Colorado public Radio's Dan Boyce reports, some female veterans are skeptical. First Lieutenant Kelly McKay serves with the all female Space Operation Squadron stationed at Schriever Air Force Base near Colorado Springs, The squadron command's one of the country's GPS satellites. I obviously never gotten work on all female crew for these were women that I've I wanted to work with their close friends of mine and co workers. The work of the space force is almost entirely digital Space Force members operates satellites and other national space assets from computers down on Earth. Lieutenant McKay says an all female squadron makes a bold statement for the military's news branch. I'm hoping that women will see that they have more opportunities, and they might have realized growing up as long as they're actively seeking out the women to come there. They have a great opportunity to be the the service that leads the way Don Christensen is president of the nonprofit Protect Our Defenders. The group focuses on reducing discrimination in the military. The space force grew out of the Air Force last December, Christensen says It's continuing the airforce tradition of a better gender balance than the other branches. But he worries the space force could continue another worrisome course when it comes to racial disparity there force with worst in analyzing military data Person's sins team found black airman 70% more likely than their white peers to get court martialed or receive other punishments. The air Force is own data shows that trend getting worse in recent years. Nevertheless, in just the last few months a couple of milestones confirmation of the first Black Air Force Academy superintendent and then the first black Air Force chief of staff General Charles Q. Brown Jr. Here's Brown's own candid assessment of the challenges ahead. I can't fix centuries of racism in our country, nor can I fixed decades, discrimination may have impacted members of our Air force. How much to make of these nominations depends on who you talk to. While we're very proud of gentle brown. It's It's so even Pacheco is a recently retired air force commanding officer. Photo op Shea. We like, like people. We like minority. Yea, we promoted on so don't complain anymore, okay? And we're like, Okay, So what? We want to see his action. What policies? Are you going to drive? What changes? Are you going to drive? She argues the ways to report discrimination in the space force are all inherited from Thie Air Force. And if you don't restructuring I honestly I don't. I'm not sure that you'll be able to restructure. I don't know. I just think they might continue get away with it. Unfortunately. Pacheco says As discrimination charges work their way up the chain of command senior officers often suppress reports to avoid looking bad themselves. They're going to be shaped to encourage honest communication, the space force's chief diversity and inclusion. Officer Carrie Baker says They've already placed heavy emphasis on developing open minded leaders and pushing them to learn about unconscious biases, even to the point where one should be careless enough to Speaks to their leadership about concerns that they have without concern of retribution.

"Health agency sits on this enormous dataset of service records from you know, 9.6 million people that are part of Beneficiaries of the U. S department defense. That's not even getting the veterans. And what does a guy does with augmented reality microscopes is it looks through all of these samples and finds new potential cellular and abnormalities, and it came to a pathologist to the president of cancer. Much faster than just looking at slides. So what's interesting here is that you know, different people been talking about trying to apply artificial intelligence to cancer detection for a long time. It's been very useful in a research setting on what the department defense is trying to do is put this in the hands of actual pathologist so that they can look to a sample and I don't get a little Q. In there. Microphones in the microscope will have visual field that will work them to a portion of what they see in front from the base should pay particular attention to And then they'll be able to find potentially cancer much faster, like in the womb, like while they're actually sitting in front of the picture, And that is a big breakthrough. That really cuts down on the time that it would take to discover potential cancer. And it isn't a part of defense contract, too. So Cancer rest. Google the Defense Department? Yes or Google? The Defense Department? No, I have. I have anecdotal experience with cancer. Patrick, as you know. And it is a good analogy to say that cancer is like rust on a human It is so so I suddenly have an affinity for warships. We both rust and we can have. We can have a solution quickly. This was the one I loved. Hey, I defeated an Aye aye. Defeated a human f 16 pilot in a simulated dogfight. This is fabulous, but I turned the screw on this because you've reported over the years, the anxiety about turning robots loose with killer instincts. Is that what we're looking at here? An A. I that's ready to shoot. Uh, well, the robot here the artificial intelligence in this home for two days on contest they do shoot you shoot down other right and they win. Yeah, So here's the thing. It depends on how you define salmon supervision. Right. So what the military once with these things is they want ah, artificial intelligence to take over the job of different aspects of piloting maneuvering. Yeah, And it's possibly making lethal decision making in defense of a human. But while the human is there, so the human is either in a ah different aircraft that's very close by that These types of machines are protecting or it's part of the functioning of the aircraft that the human is actually in. We're not really talking in this instance about pulling the human faraway inputting them somewhere where, whether or not goingto have any supervision over what the is doing, But as you point out, there's a bit of a love there, right. We're talking isn't that he's Ah, different artificial intelligence machine programs did so well against this human F 16 pilots because they react they they work much faster. You're able to understand their environment because of the way there computing information about their altitude and and also the way they're computing information about the position of the adversary of detergent. You do that much faster, David conclusion much faster, and so really do get into this question of what exactly is the human supervising Because it's sort of like having something that's unqualified to watch a vastly more qualified employees go about doing a task so You do get into some philosophical questions here, but very much the Pentagon is what could get. This is part of a, um, a grouping if you will, so there's definitely human involvement. But it was fascinating is watching all of these eyes. First, they competed against one another. Ah, two out of a series of different round to see how it's the best and then the winner of that contest. Faced off against an F 16 pilot in a couple of rounds, and I watched it happen, and you know something sort of interesting by the at the first couple of rounds in which the human problem faced off against the artificial intelligence. A human. You've got clobbered really fast, really hard. It was. It was pretty pitiful, and I felt bad for me Species. By the time they got to the last round, the human have figured out some of the different tactics at the check's going to over and over again. So the Employing the same winning strategy in every play, and it took a couple of rounds for the human figure out. This is what the right right lasted much longer, but still not long enough to actually get a shot up and it was a was a total blowout. Human lost every round perfect victories. They I better learn about poker. There are tells guy there are tells Patrick Tucker technology entered a defense one. What is China doing about it when we come back? I'm John Bachelor.

"To Trump's properties since he took over and the majority of that, at least is related to Trump's own travel, a zoo said. Nobody will give me at the actual total. That's the White House about the dress, the Trump organization. You know a pretty simple question how much taxpayer money has been paid to the Trump organization since Trump took over, and neither one of them will say So. What? We that number that we know more than 900,000 is cobbled together from a whole bunch of receipts and other documents. We've gotten through public information requests. But it is totally incomplete. I'll be the first to admit that because so many of the records still haven't been released. A lot of the data we have is old as 2018 or 2017. There's not much in the last two years. Is it even possible to say how I mean I get that there's a lot of terra incognita out there. But is it possible to say how much of the territory you have at least covered and looked at Well, not really. I mean, we we've looked at the main places with the federal government seems to spend money Mar a Lago in Bedminster, which makes sense because those are the places where Trump spends the most time. As well as the Trump Hotel in D C on. So we have secret service records for maybe a third to a half of Trump's presidency at those places, but the State Department Defense Department, which also send AIDS and you know other folks, along with Trump rent rooms at those places. Basically they've been so slow in responding to our requests that the most recent data we have from them is from 2070. I remember from times we've talked previously that the way the information comes back to you is not perhaps as simple as an expense report that you are. I might submit our employer if we, you know, got lunch with a source or something like that. That's right. Often the State Department Defense Department particularly provide these like, you know. Ah, spread, she uprooted out spreadsheet was 37 columns and, you know, one of the columns will say something about the Trump Hotel, but it's sort of hard to tell what was actually going on who did the spending? S I'm going a lot about federal procurement bureaucracy. But, you know, as we go along, we're getting more and more records. We just got a big dump of secret service records that were going to writing about tomorrow that show you more about what the Trump organization charged. You know, when they when they had the Secret Service is a captive customer, right? Secret service can't If they get charged a lot of money in Mar a Lago. It's not like they could go stay down the street where they have the secret Service is a captive customer. What did they charge him on DH, The results are pretty surprising. Well, so give me some color. I don't know if you can scoop your own story, but like, give me some color from from what you learned by by by going through these receipts and like really figuring out you know what's in the minibar. Well, I mean, there's a couple of examples have already reported on that, I think are really interesting. Now. Remember that the one thing the Trump organization has said publicly about what charges The U. S government is Eric Trump last year, said Look, when government agencies come to my father's properties, we charge them. We let him stay for free effectively. And then he corrected himself to say it was like 50 bucks a night. S O. And we've now looked at thousands of receipts for hotel charges at Trump Properties, and there is not one single example of a rape that matches what Eric Trump described. So the thing that he said was happening all the time. I can't find a reason record of it happening ever. Instead, the rates that they've charged the government have been anywhere from the maximum allowed under federal per diem rules all the way up to weigh more than the maximum. So $650 a night for a hotel room at Mar a Lago. $550 a night for a cottage in Bedminster, those air sort of the two biggest ones, but they're important because they've occur so often to of the place is Trump goes so often they are also the places for the biggest charges. Let's take a call from a Laney. Laney is on line one and Delaney, I understand you were a trump Voter in 2016. What's your question for David Fahrenthold? Correct. Good. Good afternoon to all of you. And thank you for clarifying in a wonderful show. I'm a retired history teacher in a parochial school, and I did vote for him. The last time I'm just in shock how the executive offices politicized. Last night when I tuned in, and I saw all the convicts, I was like that I turned into the right stream just very confusing. But after last night I saw on the social media that $2.3 million went from the Trump campaign. The 2020 campaign. To the Trump organization. Can you shed some light on that? Where's all that money going to? That's a great question. So you're right in 2016 Donald Trump gave him campaign a lot of money. But in 2020, it's been the reverse. The campaign has given Donald Trump a lot of money. There's been $2.3 million worth of spending by Trump's campaign at Trump Properties that includes rental of some ball rooms at Trump Properties, but it also includes About $40,000 a month in office. Randa Trump Tower that Trump's campaign is not based at Trump Tower has a headquarters in Virginia, where they rent on, but they still charged. The Trump Organization still charges the Trump campaign. $40,000 a month in office rent of Trump Tower in New York, and we don't really know what happens in that space. We have been able to get in or get a good account. Apparently, not very much happens, but I don't know if there's one person or five people or nobody. That's one of the ways in which people who give money to Trump's campaign to help his political cause. Their money is transformed to Trump's private residence. And Elaine E. If you're still there, I'm actually really curious to hear from you. You were a supporter of the president above to hear why you supported him and what it is about the Sort of financial on payment side of this stuff that turns you off. Oh, you know, lifelong Republicans, Greek background were 12 in our household, and we just, You know, we just supported him. We're from New Jersey. And and you know, we had heard that he had Cross people, Atlantic City and all the other things, but we had faith and we wanted a change in our government. And but just now seeing the divisiveness and Ah You know, way want to change and look what we got. We got a show that's destroying our democracy and our capitalistic society, which is so sad, and then the last thing I do want to say is, I found Melania's speech last night. Very You know, with double intentions, like she would say We want an honest president and like a lot of the things that she achieves more clever than we think, uh, she kind of a lot of times. Made inferences or just like You know that those inferences that she made were kind of like, okay, you know, putting things in doubt.

Coast Guard in Rough Seas Because of Shutdown
"Is the coast guard adversely affected by the lack of deal to fund the government because funding comes from the department of homeland security because it's the only military branch that doesn't fall under the Pentagon and department defense funding falls under our homeland security, and they are affected by the partial government shutdown. So right now, the active duty coast guard and civilians who work for the coastguard active reserves. None of them are getting paid. How many coastguard employees are going without a paycheck, both active duty and civilian? So there's about fifty five thousand from active, active duty civilians, etcetera who fall under the active component. They are the ones who are currently not getting paid. And we're going into the second week that civilians at the coast guard aren't getting paid civilian employees. We won't hit the next the second round paychecks for active duty coast guard until February first but on February. I not only will the the active duty coast guard numbers beginning paid. But then retirees and beneficiaries also be hit. That's about fifty thousand more people. So we're talking about one hundred thousand people overall are more that's about right? Are these active duty workers they furloughed or they working without pay? No, they are working without pay and they coast guard commandant and the master chief petty officer, the coastguard are have been out on Twitter and sending messages to the force. And they've been out on Capitol Hill reminding the public that the men and women of the coast guard are not sitting at home during this. They are working every day and not getting paid. While they do that. Yes. As you say, you know, the coast guard has been very angry vocal about the shutdown. Its head Admiral Carl Scholtz has tweeted his frustration to coast guard members. Now, wasn't there recently attended of deal between the White House and Senate to move forward with a Bill to at least pay active duty coast guard members. So the actual nuts and bolts of the deal that was worked out kind of vague. But my understanding of it, and and talk of folks on the hill about it is the White House, and the Senate came to a sort of a tentative agreement that the White House would would sign legislation that came across President Trump's desk to pay for the active duty coast guard, but then as the quote unquote, kinks as as one legislator told me the kinks are being worked out of legislation then request of whether or not billions get paid. Whether folks who are reservists, but are currently doing an active duty job get paid everything got bogged down in those negotiations, and nobody could be on anything. Besides the fact that we should be paying active duty. But because that's the only thing people could agree on. There was no way to get a a Bill to to push through the legislature. So what we end up with is is no deal at all. And the coast guard is still waiting for a paycheck, and there's no clear legislation on the horizon. Then talk about the hardships that coastguard workers have been enduring because of the shutdown. There's multiple reports of coastguard men and women having to go to food banks to get supplies while they wait for these paychecks. The coast guard has an increase in the number of people who are requesting permission to to take jobs outside of uniform to uniform service member of the coast guard has to get permission to take second. Take a second job coastguard fielding more of those requests in granting more those permissions, so you have food banks you have second jobs, and you have relief societies set up through the coast guard or through veterans organizations like the American Legion who are dispensing money through grants and relief programs.
Isis returns to its insurgent roots
"ISIS is returning to its insurgent roots having been driven out of almost all the territory it once controlled in Iraq and Syria four years after ISIS controlled as much as a third of Iraq declared a caliphate. It is retrenched, but it's still the power to carry out kidnappings killings and bombings. Khloe? Cornish took to Andrew England about the continuing threat posed by the group to stability in the region. In two thousand fourteen ISIS notes the blitz across Iraq and Syria. And at one point I think they control about third of Iraq and major cities in both countries. What's been happening in the last couple of years since the caliphate will the self declared caliphate has been defeated all the situation being in terms of how they've been pushed back from their strongholds. Rockford. It'd be Iraqi government declared a military victory over I his about this time. I should having won back control of major urban areas. Which I is it invaded include the northern city of Mosul Iraq's second largest city. So that was a fight that nasty three and number players involved. That's the fighters from the Iraqi army which had initially kinda crumbled in two thousand fourteen faced with the ISIS insurgency, you have Kurdish vices mcken fun region. You also had low of shin initial groups who had formed pretty much in response to the ISIS threats that was facing Europe. It was big big movement to mobilize additional fighters to protect the country. And a lot of those groups actually have a radian bucking. So all of these people working not always very well together. There was also west and involvement as well. Intensive ashtrays on ISIS targets in Iraq. So that's how that fight with paying out. And then in Syria, the situation is actually more complicated because the fight against ISIS is just one really the much larger civil war. So in Syria, ISIS territory was concentrated in the north east of the country on the big cities rocker and data which probably will be familiar to people. Now, you will probably see the social glasses destination of those cities under the weight of US leda strikes. So in Syria, ISIS is in fighting on the one hand Russian-backed pro regime Syrian forces with Iranian involvement and on the other hand US backed Syrian rebels. So it's actually been facing kind of both sides of the civil war and Russia and their Resor fell from ISIS control this year amid much lodge. Hush by the feeling of as well, so retake areas in the south the country. So there was basically a big effort by local and international forces to push them back in both countries. What do we know about what remains in terms of the ISIS fighters? Isis supporters across these two companies. At one point in August, the US apartment defense was saying there about three thousand ISIS fighters in this pocket in Syria, the this territory they control, but it's very important to be cautious about them. The I think it's very hard for us to know, exactly. How many fighters they're all lest and how many schools is they have across Iraq and Syria. But we do know where I this is holed up in Iraq. They've got we think they is in the hammering mountains, which a very very Thakin offense mountains kinda the middle of a rock, and they don't say tax from that. And then they will they will have more bases a more positions in northerner as well. And there's continuing worry about sleeper cells of ISIS, fighters and other parts of the country as well. You mentioned the being pushed out of the major cities they controlled in the major church they controlled house they adopted the way the carrying out attacks. Because they do continue to pose a threat as we've mentioned. Yeah. Absolutely. I just thought it at a terrorist insurgency and then gained these huge swathes of territory. Very frightening. Modern two thousand fourteen and what they've done is returned to the insurgent route that they came from much smaller terror attacks people just disappeared into the desert rose and trying to hold her Trie. So that seems to be the strategy now is to continue to destabilize these areas with smaller hit and run attacks, but still deadly unfortunately for civilians and officials who have against targeted in Iraq. What impact is that heaven? I mean, obviously in Iraq this chiefs ways the county Sedikh control, which has to be rebuilt about reconstruction. The need to get people who were forced out of the homes back and these areas which always felt very marginalized slightly by bike dad and was a new government in Baghdad. What impact is it having? Terms of Iraq and Iraq's ability to build on the security gains. And then in Syria where we're seeing the civil war is winding down as prison. Bouchara sats voices have reclaimed control of most of the country and get mentioning just how much progress hasn't Nate unsecurity interactions on his was holding touchy. Yes, they all these kinds of attacks. But the Iraqi security forces constellation is vice is happening execution type outweigh. However, you know, is people continue to feel threatened by ISIS attacks that really undermines any kind of official assets to restore stability in the sense of security as well in these places. I think it called me stress. Just how dangerous life can still feel. I think in face it might be better than before. But if I this is coming to your village and killed the most important tests and in that village issue the local chief, which is confident analyst of seen them doing. That contributes to a sense of instability in Syria. This is the of most active fighting still in Syria to try and expel ISIS from the last pockets territory, and so you have continual battle casualties that. But of the overall civil War, I suppose, the American involvement there is the most important thing because America's said it's in Syria in order to ensure the enduring defeat of ISIS, and so obviously the longer that they have to fight. I enjoy the longer they're gonna be there they north. They started to link that crisis in Syria to Iranian presence as well. And they want to be honest to see Iranian forces in Iranian proxy forces also being expelled from Syria. But the continuing bustle against I means America continues to have military presence into it as well. At one point when they controlled large areas in Syrian Iraqi Lee had oil resources that smuggling results the customs, they had taxes, etc. How they survive today. Does this indicate that perhaps they still have certain areas where they still have support. What do we know about what sustaining them? I guess it's important to stress how wealthy ISIS was at one point. It had opened up by volts that had huge oil revenues, and they invested some of that money into companies anything for money exchanges car dealership, and I think it's pretty hard for the authorities actually pinpoint which companies they beat in order to to function or stop them from operating. So what we understand believe that they get revenues from these companies, they also can stop and extort trucks on roads, and that kind of thing, so certainly they've knees are much much diminished. They are much much week before the nab were, but they do still have revenue. Streams coming in one of the notable things about twenty fourteen was her the Iraqi security forces, which the Americans have spent billions of dollars rebuilding of the invasion in two thousand and free melted away when they were faced with the fruit of ISIS, how it quits to the Iraqi forces. Forces to continue maintaining the offensive against ISIS and prevent a resurgence. I mean that would seem to be one of the critical things going forward. I think we'd have to say that the Iraqi forces are stronger than they were full. However, the US department defense expect to general recall, I said, I've how the fight against ISIS going. Deep highlight socks. They didn't think Americans would be able to leave Iraq anytime soon intensive needing to keep providing support to the Iraqi security forces one of the things that diplomats stress here as well, which they sometimes feel like they're not being heard back in their home capitals. Is that I it is not done thing. He's quite far off didn't thing in the and in that regard is going to need to be continuing the just ical and probably material support full voltage contracting. Is it not an easy thing to do counterinsurgency is in some ways. Much harder execute than ground offensive in love wage. You know, you don't know coming from. It's a difficult thing to do. And certainly the Americans in fact that the Iraqis are going to need help with it for the foreseeable featuring ever since the US invasion in two thousand and free ousted Saddam Hussein the have been sectarian shoes and publicity extremism in a country, which is now run by the Shia majority, people would say that's helped fuel the extremism that ISIS has been able to tap into. Do you think that those issues have been tackled have been dealt with? And how important will that be going forward when the new government in Baghdad looks to rebuild and reconstruct areas that came under ISIS control? I mean, exactly as you say they'd been real continuity in fans is a long-standing trending towards extreme in amongst some communities in Iraq sent doesn't three hundred before is well and the government now needs to do. It can to restore service days and its authority in some of these areas happen just so badly damaged by war. But we're also neglected before the ISIS insurgency and before people decided to join you can see. So, you know, it was just politics and conflicts, very localized in Iraq. But you can see there was a broader trend towards any extremes. And I think actually that has been a swing by though. I mean, I was just so brutal. That polling suggested the obscene. He's actually will let in favor of more hardline version of is not not the people. So I did. So in some senses, they lost support that says to me in a country where there have been real kind of weaponization and sectarian identity. This is not a problem. That's going to go away without tackling some of the courses.
This NYT bestseller has penned his most frightening novel to date
"Us. Now. Zirk our friend, the number one bestselling author in my opinion. Probably the best suspense novelist out there. James rollins. Jeez. Welcome back to the show forever. For having me again. Appreciate it. Yeah. Yeah. Well, great to have you on board and congratulations on the latest. The demon crown appreciate that of the street this debut. Yeah. Absolutely. We'll tell us a little bit about the book, and maybe how it fits into the rest of the cessation of sigma for series. And maybe how they're some departures in some new thrills in their. Sure. Well, this story is number thirteen in the series. Not that you have to read them in any order. No one's read my books in in the proper order. I wish they would. But they don't just totally fine. But in this book, and to quote, my editor she describes it as my most frightening book to date, and I'm not about to argue with her. I think it is one of the curious look I've ever written. But basically the story starts out when a group of scientists they travel to an island off the coast of Brazil, and they discover that all life on the island has been radicchio. It's gone. It's been consumed by species that's beyond imagination freaks them out before they report their discovery, the scientists all attacked and killed, but this one events blows up until into a global threat when the same species that was on the island. Unleashed as a weapon across the Hawaiian islands. And as people begin to die one hundred sit appears to to stop this from even spreading globally as the nuke those islands. But of course, my team of heroes sigma forces called in Detroit. Discover the origin of the species where came from and find a way to destroy it. But the species is still stubborn little guy. It's changing spreading surviving every time. Stop it. And what's sort of frightening about this book, and I'm sort of hedging myself a little bit by not revealing what that threat exactly is. It's one of the threats that homeland security is classified as prime danger against the US, I suppose for the seat for this novel was I had read this list of concerns of homeland security has for the United States in surprised to see this threat raised in the basically the biological threat. And it's one that concerns homeland security enough that I decided to write a book about it. Yeah. That's fascinating. So it's it's still good novel before Christmas, right? No, it takes place in Hawaii. So it's like a little Hawaiian vacation for readers. So it's perfectly time for Christmas. So that you want that little winter holiday, the little beach vacation. Of course this venture. You're not gonna get a little rest and relaxation during this trip. But hopefully, it will if nothing else entertained there you go. Yeah. I was getting a a love seeing the islands. Love seeing the different locations. You go to I was worried because why is obviously go along with everybody else when my all time favorite places. So I gotta make sure Hawaii stays in place. So glad force was on the scene. That's good. Tilson a little bit about maybe some of the characters that were familiar with from the the the past series as well as maybe some new characters in what they bring to the table. Sure, we'll sigma foresaw there for those that aren't familiar there. A group of special forces soldiers that were drummed out of the service for various reasons, but because it's such a aptitudes or skills or intelligence they recruited in secret by DARPA, which is the defense department department's defense and research and development wing, he answered it. They're basically retraining secret to be field agents for DARPA to protect the our shores and very short against I global threats so in this the usual team comes up to bat. But of course, they need to recruit a few extra skilled individuals to help them in this case, we find a Hawaiian firemen that sort of stumbled upon this adventure along with the members of sigma force that are called into play, and he gets sort of semi recruited. So he's funny sort of almost a comic relief character in the book a little bit. And we also have a Tamala just to sum that team C N demolished that works for the national zoo that is called in to explore this new threat. And of course, got the usual cast of characters there's commander Grayson pierces, the leader of the team he's along with his usual cast of characters sigma force and is a little bit of a little extra surprise for gray. In the fact that he finds out that his girlfriend maybe pregnant, but more than that. Major element to the story ovoid. Another twist turn. So let me envisioning you in your say at your office. We'll see it's a deep dungeon or your tree treehouse retreat. Whatever may be, but you're sitting there in your thinking about okay, I've got the series and it's thirteenth in the series. So I knew I have to bring back some of the characters that people are going to be familiar with wise. My fan base will kill me. So to do that. How do you go about planning the the whole plot in this scenario the locations in what the teams going to be doing this time compared to what they did last time. But what are they mission? I resisted doing series. I didn't wanna do a series. All my for stories. We're all individual adventures. It was only pond some pressure from my publishing house that I finally broke down and wrote a series because I had to call the Jessica Fletcher syndrome, you all seem. Fletcher. Cross dead bodies every week. I've never ever stumbled over a dead body. So I always had that sort of problem with serious characters. Why is that one series curated always getting into mischief unless of course, lasts revelations last episode of murder? She wrote that she was a serial killer. She's been framing everybody'll Paul along. Don't make sense. Resisted doing this series because of that problem. But if I make a furious based on a group rather than an individual that can have a little more fun for
