They have poles and so for people who aren't going to be traveling internationally aren't going to the Caribbean. They should come and check out our nation's capital.

So, as I say, every city got hit, but D C is no exception. Where are you? Where do you assess where you are coming back from that? Well, we're open and I want I want to be real clear about that were fully open Our monuments, museums, Parks open. We're welcoming tourists. We know that people who live within 50 miles of D C are coming on the weekends. They're bringing their kids during the week and we we can't wait to see everybody. Our businesses and residents really sacrificed a lot in 16 months. Um, and they're eager to bring their workers back and have everybody come in. Uh, to see us in Washington. So I think we're well on our way to our combat. The tourism is really important District Columbia Without a doubt. Do you have any gauge of just how far back you are? I mean, you read of 50% of 60%. Where are you? I think that we're actually probably less than that during the week. Summer tends to be a little bit more of a downtime for us in non pandemic years. And this summer.

So give us a sense of vaccination because this is an issue across the country. President Biden had some goals. He's not going to make his goal is it turns out we made it. Well, I know you've done very well. Overall. Yes, your vaccination rate at the same time there is for the surgical Colombia as there is For so many places across the country, a differential based on race. We have seen racial disparities throughout Covid in our city, African Americans had a higher rate of infection and a higher rate of fatality, then our white counterparts in D. C. And so much of that is linked to overall health disparities and outcomes that you know have have been persistent, uh and with vaccination. We are very focused on those 30% of adults and young people over the age of 12 who still need to get vaccinated. You may have seen that I went door to door with Tony Fauci. Um And he's a huge a huge celebrity, but also a person that people trust in trust with getting information about Covid. So we're really targeting were not just throwing a blanket out there trying to get a y'all come, but we are using all over data tools to target households that we know. Need the vaccine only with the vaccine on this vaccine. This is one thing that Tony Fauci told everybody. It is free. It's safe, and it is effective when a vaccine became wide widely available. We saw our numbers plummet in D. C. And we want everybody to have the benefit of that vaccine. This world is not set up for the unvaccinated right now. Okay, people going to have to come back to work. Kids are going back to school and the only way to protect ourselves with vaccine. So one of things I saw you did besides going around with Dr Fauci is you offer I'll call it a gift certificate for $51 Look that, said $51. That's an interesting number explained why he came up of 51. It wasn't by random. Well, 51 is important to us because of our campaign to become the 51st state. And at the same time I just testified at the Senate. Only the second time the Senate has had a hearing about D C. Statehood. We have the count. The Congress is at the House of Representatives, I should say has passed. The bill twice of the president of the United States has endorsed HR 51 s 51. And now it's up to the Senate. Like so many things right now, uh, to get infrastructure dance to protect voting rights and to admit D C is the 51st state. Let's be honest, though, in all likelihood, if you were a state, you'd have two senators who would be Democrats. If you're Republican Senator. Why would you ever vote for this? Well, you know, one of as one of the senators put it, Actually Senator Joe Lieberman, a great independent. That, uh, this Senate as it has done this Congress 37 Times prior has gotten over its partisan anxieties because they are fleeting. The same arguments were made about Alaska and Hawaii, uh, and some time after they were admitted. As to 49th, the 50th state, those partisan anxieties and predictions have been upended. Our democracy in the states that were admitted by the Congress. All 37 have been admitted by simple legislation outside of the 1st 13, and we shouldn't be any different. Mayor. One of the issues again every municipality is facing across the country is policing and safety, trying to get the right balance between making sure people are safe. And the police are really doing the job sometime, avoiding excesses. Sadly, we've seen too many describe the situation in D. C. What are you doing? We're we are deploying the whole spectrum of interventions where we're focused on making sure police have the tools that they need, but also on community violence. Uh, intervention and interruption but in the middle of that also were focused on how to provide more opportunity for folks. So job training subsidised employment transition for our residents who are returning from incarceration, housing All of those opportunities we know prevent people, um from getting involved in crime and gun violence, But we're also focused on making sure illegal guns are off our streets. There's a lot of talk about defunding the police and actually move here in New York City has been to cut back significantly on the budget for the New York police. What are you doing? The budget for the police there and adjunct to that? What are you doing to beef up some other operations that might take some pressure off the police? Well, great question. So I have a budget in front of the council now. $17 billion budget. We add police in in that budget, we add police cadets. Our high school students who want to join the department. Can we pay them to go to college to get trained and then join our academy in two years, so we know that that's going to help us beef up by force. Unfortunately, last year, we weren't able to hire any police because of cuts to police funding. So we know over the next several gears. We're going to have to have the right amount of hiring to keep our force where it needs to be. We also have $59 million in alternatives to policing that helped take down the police calls. Listen, I told our residents told my counsel I'm always going to put before you what we need, um, in the number of police officers. Because if we can turn down the number of 911 calls that balances, uh, that the amount of police resources we need, Um, Mayor one of the issues in Washington on Capitol Hill, but more broadly is infrastructure, big debate over infrastructure and we're reminded us by that horrific photos of the pedestrian bridge in D. C to 95 that collapsed and they've been I guess some warnings about it, give us a sense of what you need in D C for infrastructure and if we had proper infrastructure Could we avoided things like that? Well, um, I'm actually proud of our infrastructure investments. I'm proud of how we monitor everything from the condition of our our school buildings to office buildings, two streets, sidewalks and trees, and we have an inventory of what we need in a long range plan to get it done..

"During our short break there, Victor did go to the magic machine and retrieve that sound bite from the 60 Minutes piece about about space aliens living among us. I mean, some of them might be leading the Democratic Party. You know who's to say Honestly, if we've got the spacecraft like I think he's got it six or 700 G's rather than 800 G's gonna G forces Gravitational forces. Me the most I've ever pulled G forces. Um let me see 7.5 gs. 7.5 Cheese is the most I've ever pulled, but sustained not just for a second or two. And while I would had the stick while I was flying seven half cheese and that was F 16 and Get the seven G's and after 18 sixties in in a six intruder, but that Zoe's another story for another day. Um right now I want to get back to the silly Washington Post, which is not a newspaper. It looks like a newspaper. But it's not. That's their slogan. Interestingly enough kind of an odd slogan. But I want to share with you. And I was just sharing with Jeff and Victor. The story. Another blurb in the Digest where you find all the relevant news in the Washington Post because it's not a newspaper after the child's remains found in a receptacle, a trash receptacle they liked. Garbage can is what they mean to say. And the Secret Service now flying drones over the city of Washington. That's kind of an interesting one. Get your slingshot out. I guess that getting in that secret service drones flying overhead in Washington D. C boy, We got to be first in a lot of good stuff, Don't we? And in Washington But never mind that for the time being, Here's Here's another one. See what this makes you think of, I was asking was asking Victor and Jeff Wolf in today. In all this week for Michael Pierce. He was at the beach with his wonderful family. Sharing an occasional picture. Um, what does this make you think of police here is that the headline in the Digest Maryland? Is that the header? Police fatally shoot man during standoff So please fatally shot somebody shot him and killed him that you can tell by the headline right there. Man. Listen, listen now carefully. A man who was holding a knife, See holding, holding holding Ah knife and holding a woman at knifepoint was shot and killed by Baltimore City Police officer. The police commissioner's said the officer fired the shot inside house after a man grabbed the woman by her hair. And made a stabbing motion with a large knife he held, said police Commissioner Michael Harrison. Ah, second officer may have also shocked at the man, so one or two, they're not entirely sure. He said The gunfire came after efforts to de escalate. The situation were unsuccessful as you might imagine, and and it does say at the bottom of the story it, says Harrison, the police commissioner, He said that the account that he gave was based on body camera video. So now we know that there's body camera video and that there is a police had police officer tragically had shoot to death. They a man because he was holding a woman at knifepoint and threatening to kill the woman. So naturally, the police do what the police do They save the innocents person. By stopping the knife wielding lunatic would be murderer. You see? So now I made a little note. I circled a couple of sentences with my With my skill craft pen. And then I wrote one word next to the story. And the word that I wrote is LeBron Question, Mark because certainly LeBron has to get upset about this. Nothing and because I was saying was if I knew the name of the police officer, and I don't know the name of the play. I don't think they've made the name of the police officer public, which is fine with me. They you know, then I could send him a tweet. Saying You're next with an hourglass next to it, Which is what LeBron James. Did you see? Because this is what the police do LeBron you know that? It's not all slave labor and Nike shoes. Maybe it is for you. But you know, in the real world out here if somebody is lunging at someone else with a knife It's that's a lethal force situation. You got an innocent president. A guilty prison. It's the job of the police. Sadly, tragically, the police don't like it to shoot the person with the knife. Which is you see what happened in Columbus, Ohio, recently when a teenage girl was lunging at another Apparently teenage girl with a big knife on was an instant away from Probably killing her, certainly very seriously injuring her. And LeBron James, the You know, $500 million man who puts a rubber ball in a hoop. He tweeted a threat at the police because he's a Democrat and their anti police and police officer was white and the people involved in the brawl in the driveway where black So LeBron is also a racist because I'm gonna go out on a limb here. I'm gonna You know, it's quite possible that the police officer in Baltimore is African American. And therefore you know, he couldn't have done anything wrong. Because the Racists say so. So there it is. Hey, LeBron, Are you gonna be really upset with this? But you should get the name LeBron. He's rich. He could hire people. You can get the name of the police officer and then threatened the Baltimore police house, sir, who shot and killed a man. Another difference. It's a man man. See, it's a man man. And lost in powers and S O. So there it is, And I got I got ahold of us. I've read that this morning. So we're where is LeBron? He's got to be furious about this got to be absolutely angry because this is exactly the kind of thing that makes him very angry. Except selectively because some black lives matter. Let's let's be clear about them. I also I continued in the Metro Section, the B section of today's Washington Post. And in the in the District District, Columbia there proudly reporting a story new policy for mental health crises. That's plenty of that going on here. That's for sure. And Rachel Weiner is typing on behalf of the Democrat Party. Said. Starting in June in Washington, D C. Police will not be the first responders to some mental health calls in the city. They call those social workers at home. Under a new pilot program. 911 operators will instead send unarmed teams of behavioral health experts and peers to the scene Piers piers of whom peers of the behavioral health experts They want their performance peer reviewed or appears of the mentally ill person. They're going to call their friends on Diethelm to come out over from Maryland or something. The move was recommended last month by the city's Police Reform Commission. Part of a local and national effort in the wake of George Floyd's killing Now was that a mentally old situation? No, so it's irrelevant Reference. Reduce violent contact between the public and law enforcement this out and well on but says and and it says it like this, he says. We want to make sure we're not making something more of an event by sending a uniformed officer there if there are if they're not needed, said Cleo Subito. The interim director of the Office of Unified Communications s. Oh, so this is their new plan. They're going. You've got a situation where somebody calls 911 Because there's someone, apparently mentally Oh, I don't know that 911 caller determines that But then they send social workers over instead of police and then went to the police show up after the social worker's here. Shut me What happens then? I'm curious about that, because without a whiff of irony, without a hint of irony. The story..

"But a republic is a kind of it's a form of democracy. Okay? And and the truth is, you can you can play with the rules as you want, but I think the vast vast vast majority of people in this republic slash democracy Truly want their vote to count. And for every vote to be equal, isn't equality like the essence of who we are as a nation. So here's how we way achieve that equality. There is this thing we talked about it for. Called the National Popular Vote Interstate compact. It's been around for over a decade, and there are now 15 states, plus the District Columbia with a total of 196 electoral votes, who have pledged once we hit 270 beef right, a commitment from 270 electoral votes worth of states to give all of their electoral votes, no matter who wins their state. Two of the winner of the national Popular Vote, So we have 196 electoral college votes dedicated to this. It gets triggered. It becomes active and operational when there are states with 270 electoral votes. We on ly need three or four or five states depending on their size. To hit that 270 mark and what that means is, we will get rid of this frickin electoral college Kabuki theater crazy system that we're all suffering through and by the 2020 for election if three or four or five states enact that piece of legislation simple piece of legislation In their states in their state legislatures. Is there the political will to do it? I mean, where is the political will on this? I mean, it's close, right? I mean, we're really it's you could almost push it across the finish line. Well, it is, except no Republicans will vote for it because they are totally bowing down to Donald Trump. But imagine this Imagine Joe Biden wins the national popular vote by five million, like we were saying And Trump is able to somehow get an electoral college victory. I think people will go ballistic. But it won't matter because Republican legislatures, which are required to get those extra states like in Texas, or Florida, or even in Arizona. They won't do anything that Donald Trump doesn't want them to do. So it's an easy solution from a mathematical standpoint from a civic standpoint from a legal standpoint. But it's been complicated. But this incredibly fractured partisan politics that we have now. OK, let's take a couple of calls. We'll try to get to them quickly. Matt. Thanks for waiting. Matt is asking about what if Trump wins the electoral College Heimat, you're on KGO with Richard Green. Yes, Richard. I wonder if you would further elaborate. Let's say that Joe Biden would win the popular vote by six million. Votes, and Donald Trump would actually win the Electoral College on the opposite. Do you think that would increase the movement for Ah Ah constitutional amendment to abolish the Electoral College? Yeah, we were just talking about that. I think it would just listen. There are people who are still upset about what happened with Al Gore. He won the popular vote by half a million they lost in Florida by 537 votes. And then, of course, Hillary won by 2.9 million votes, But we're not going to get a constitutional amendment. Forget that. Just forget the constitutional amendment. You need three quarters of the 50 states. To agree, and they're just not going to do it. They're not going to do it unless Donald Trump, or whoever is leading the Republican Party at that point says we want to do it now. Here's how that might happen. Michael Steele, the former chair of the Republican Party. He is part of the national popular Vote. Interstate Compact is one of the few Republicans who are and he's a friend of mine. It's and Michael. Why're you doing this? He said, because Republicans are gonna lose Texas. And we're gonna lose the 38 electoral votes as their become. It becomes more democratic with more Hispanics, etcetera, so that might push the envelope there. That shouldn't be the reason we do it. But that would be the only way to do it. But I think it's quicker to do it with the national popular Vote Interstate compact. We could do that next year. We could do that really quickly. Constitutional amendments take a long time. But again if Republicans get behind it and joined Democrats and we say this is just crazy, let's fix our country's democracy then then we can so it's it's a good thought. I want I want. I want to jump on a couple of calls really quick. We only have a second or two high. Don. Thanks for waiting down in Sacramento. You're on KGO with Mark Thompson in Richard Green. Quick. I'm not a fan of Trump. But here's my concern, going completely popular, scared that the other way Such candidates on ly focus on populous areas, and there's the potential there running roughshod. Over world What is the proper balance point because there's got to be somewhere in the middle going one way or the other is unfortunately going to execute things. So that rural areas where run roughshod over I don't want YOLO County in California to be told what to do by New York, right, Right. That's how do you balance it after the fact you don't have to? Actually, That's a misconception, but I hear that all the time. If you took the top 50 cities in the country, it only comes out for like 15% of the country. Look what's going on in Pennsylvania, right? I mean, you've got a huge influence of the red Areas in Pennsylvania, more rural areas, their votes count to what will happen when we go to a national popular vote is presidential candidates will campaign everywhere they'll come to Los Angeles will come to New York, but they will also go to every pocket of population that they can. We will all be equal. It will be a truly national election, and it's just statistically not true. That the smaller counties in the smaller states will be ignored. Yeah, that's the other side of it. I mean, you can. If you live in a big city, you can feel neglected by the current system. Tim and San Jose. You're on kgo. Hi, Tim. How come we don't kind of like a make a compromise like Nebraska does and proportional ized the the electoral vote? Well, that's a great point for people dont know. In Maine and Nebraska. We actually appoint electors by congressional district, which allows the people to have much more choice, right. It's not winner take all And that is potentially why Drew Biden will actually win because he flipped the second Congressional district in Nebraska. Even though the rest of Nebraska is voting for Trump. That is completely It's a great point. That's completely possible. Every one of the 50 states could instantly do that. But they probably won't because the Constitution says that states determine everything. About how their electors air are elected. Great call. Thank you. Actually, those were a handful of really good calls. Thank you. I want to keep Richard over your been so lovely and generous with your time just to 11 30 because take a break, And when we come back, I want to ask you about first of all, add any texts or calls that we have, but I also want to ask you about what's going on in the Senate with Democrats in the Senate. I mean again, there's so many levers of government that Democrats right now seemed left out of the Supreme Court. Senate. I want to talk about that and polling if we can get to it, So we got a little bit more time with Richard.

"When you hear a cases going on bug, you figure it's probably going to reverse the panel. Whilst with all the judges on the court get involved, Yeah, alright. David Katz, former assistant U. S attorney in L. A. And talking to us about this Ah U S Court of appeals here in District Columbia, seven to ruling that says that the House can subpoena Correct me. If I'm wrong on this. The house can't subpoena Don began. Uh, White House counsel Don began. So what does this mean? Now? They try to subpoena him. The impeachment hearings are over with what for? What reason would they want to subpoena done began, and is he likely to testify? Welcome again had some factory any testimony that he gave to Mueller. Ah, lot of people thought the Mueller report was awfully dry, and commentators who read it can attest to the fact that a lot of it was dry. But some of it was very lively and began with the lively part lively, get lively. Again. It's a phone call at home from Trump. He said. This under oath tomorrow, and Trump wants McGann fire. Mueller For supposed conflict of interest. Again says I don't see that he had a conflict of interest. I don't see that I'm again as White House counsel, Mr. Trump had any basis to go fire Mueller, I'm not going to do it. He comes in the next day, assuming that he's going to be fired, But McGann is not fired. Once hey, didn't get bullied on that topic of firing Mueller by Trump Trump apparently changed voice a little bit, so he then said Teo McGee and pay that never happened. Write a memo because people are running around talking about I called you at home and told you to fire Mueller, which was true. I want you to write a memo that said that did not happen that would be creating a false record. That's a classic obstruction of justice in criminal law. I was going to be one of the huge spaces to impeach Trump over obstruction of justice that incident I just described with him again and they had very compelling testimony on it. As that things ended up happening, Trump was able to delay it. Ah, stretch it out. Eventually they had that Ukraine a quid pro quo where he was trying to get a personal political favor. Not something for the country, and so they impeach him on that They kept it kind of lean and tight, and they never did. Impeach Trump. Based on this began thing and other instances of obstruction of justice laid out in the Moola report, but Congress always has the right to investigate misconduct. People breaking the law in a way that concerns Congress, even if the remedy is not going to be in peak. In fact, it could investigate this even if Trump lost the election because they're looking forward Christo legislation in the future try to prevent this thing happening again, Going forward with other president other White House counsel And other obstruction of justice. David Katz is former assistant U S attorney in L A. And joining us Now, as we talk about, Don began testifying, So are we likely to see him testify or we're going to Seymour legal roadblocks. Even if the House does go forward, Try toe. Subpoena. Trump will probably run out the clock given that we would like to. First of all this Congress ends in the beginning of January, Could they get began on the stand before November? Well, they've got the elections. They've got a lot of other things going on, and there are still a few quivers in the bow of Trump. Trump, of course, is managing this Litigation. This is not something began is really pursuing himself. He's not putting money out of his pocket to go pay for a lawyer. This is all being managed by the Trump Administration, which has told him Don't testify. You have all these lights now, the broad broad right that Trump was asserting that the one he lost on I think it's such a loser. He won't go to the Supreme Court. And that is that he could prevent McCann from testifying period. But he's gonna argue that there are more limited basis. Chris on which he can stop began from testifying start to make these garden variety things. There's no there's no subject matter that's properly in dispute. He's gonna argue what you just said. There's no impeachment. That's a foot anymore, so it's not part of any gates run enquiry. And then we do ultimately get him on the stand. Let's say before November, which would be great TV and great radio. They would probably ask him a bunch of questions. And then he would maybe assert executive privilege, or rather, Trump would exert executive privilege on his behalf. And say these things happened in the White House. They were White House advice that executive privilege would not succeed, either, but could he run out the clock on meaningful questioning? With the TV cameras and the radio microphones going, yes, we probably will not have any dramatic began testimony. But remember, he gave Mueller very dramatic testimony along the lies along the line. I just said, and there are a couple of other great chestnuts in the Mueller reports where they have chapter and verse. Come again. David. I'm short on time here, and I've got to kind of wrap it up. But I appreciate the time that you've given us a sort of explaining that breaking it down because this down began thing like you said it has the potential B Really interesting TV and radio. But whether or not it happens, I suppose and and, frankly I feel like the country cares more about getting a stimulus package passed than they do about seeing Don mcghan testify. I mean, I love the juiciness of it. I love the legal juice. You know someone, but I feel like the country's is sort of beyond that at this point. Do you get that vibe? Yes, absolutely. And you know, one of the things is to slow down the court. You know, I'm a criminal defense attorney right now, and there's a certain you know, there's a there's a time and a season for every ruling under heaven, right? And later ruling if you can delay a ruling of things happening at a different time, Look, it is right now. I mean, probably mad Lor and Pelosi.

I mean, your pre game is set. I mean, right, The lights go down or the light starts flashing or whatever. And introduce your starting lineup. Of course you'll hear first. Go ahead, play it. Please. And then the lineups go. I mean, how awesome is that? The cracking? That is tough. It's great. I mean, I love it. They did everything right about this. Interested to see what the arena mascot looks like. Hopefully a cracking. I mean, how do you? How do you like? How do you believe? Similar, like a like a bipedal one that you see out there? Yeah, it will be interesting, but listen. If it's along the lines of how well they did naming this. I have complete confidence that they'll pull this off because this is a great name. Well, the S looks like a sea serpent is great on the on the article with Emily Kaplan on ESPN dot com. They break down the logo Anatomy the shape of our history. Our history is the great ice game goes as deep as the Puget Sound to Seattle metropolitans were the first Americans love to host the Stanley Cup. This is carved from the sea. Seattle is a city built by the sea. Our forebears, hands cracked in the cold, salty areas they need drilled in their lines and brought their ships. I mean, the whole thing is just it's awesome. The eye of the beast. It's It's awesome. I mean, it's awesome, and I guess we shouldn't be shocked. Michael Wilbon hated also the least surprised or whatever you could figure is he? I think, he said on Petey. It's the worst game he's ever heard. That's the exact opposite of that, actually great. The cool Maybe that's how you know it's exactly you've upset Michael Wilbon. It is fantastic again. We gotta wait for them to start till next year. But that's cool. I mean, I do think this is going to be one of those shirts that you'll see all over the place. By the way. Have you seen one of the promotional videos that they? Yeah. They put their pulling up the nets and they see the lantern. The light that goes on top of the gold We're looking at What is that? A barge goes by that makes the sound Nobody scores and the light goes. It's fantastic. Everything wrong. Washington has done Seattle has done right, right. I mean, it is fantastic, but I think that's the sort of laughable side by side as a lot of people made the joke of all right. Well, you know what Seattle had this announcement in Washington steps all over Washington didn't step all over, believes they went out there and stumble drunk into the alley with this announcement, which again like, let the cracking and everything along with it. Like you said All of that stuff they had made up. The website does a great job telling that Story. They had the gear ready to go. Ah, lot goes into these roll outs. A lot goes into designing a logo a brand what's going to represent your franchise in all of this, So it's understandable. Washington is going to take the time. But when you have the background of their very recent incompetence right next to the glory, that is the cracking. It is hard not to. I'm with you, but I'll say it again in a vacuum. I do think it is the right thing for washer and to wait for that time. Did you get the new name? No questions. So if we get so up yesterday in terms of names for teams State of Washington nailed it.

Small businesses fighting to survive the pandemic

"Let's focus on some small business owners today Alex what changes were made to the payroll protection program yes obviously during these are president times slot of small business owners have felt the pressure Lebanese restaurants or retail stores services other businesses that have been impacted by by opposite the pandemic and smashes the corona virus and there's two major programs of that that were pushed through Congress one already existed and that was the call the prickly and economic injury disaster loan program to BSP actively used for the release for hurricanes tornadoes things like that but in this case there is extra funny made for also she was a present to clear it they're able to use some of the funds for the crown of our sense of the server program nothing major really in terms of its regular course except that instead of being a natural disaster they used to this time around for for but the pandemic now the paycheck protection program that you referenced for the look at the most televised news when it first launched it was definitely a rocky ledge rollout because there's some concerns over the bank's been ready to issue the loan for the the program itself is could be rushed through the process because ultimately paychecks are be needed because a lot of folders right rely on those funds that said the president the house and the Senate all agreed to make some changes to it the unanimous vote that I've lived through or at least in the Senate and the then president trump also signed that the biggest change is that no longer will new PPP loan from an older PPP loans can use these funds for payroll of her twenty four week period from when they're dispersed Bedlam that because a lot of restaurants initially in areas of the country that are just starting to open up areas like New York City where I'm sitting right now the district Columbia which will on Monday formally move into what we call phase two of the use of more time to use the funds to bring staff back on board and also the other major changes is the lowest threshold the have to go directly to paychecks to allow a lot of businesses to pay rent pay their vendors you know key things that they'll need in order to fully resume operations hopefully for all of us writer then later are going forward well you know this small businesses make up seventy percent of the jobs in America and the small businesses have problems the whole countries and I have a problem child was far as I'm concerned having we were having a small business you can up small business god help it looks a lot of small companies small businesses now they're continuing to struggle so either you know you read in the paper every day restaurants still going out of business and what have you are there any government support programs in the works yet you know on the local level three level there have been more assistance programs that have been instituted in the city of Tampa itself is on the call one Tampa to where you can get some small grants and even some small loans in order to help on the whole business people flow but as you know the truth runs the way they are most of our business owner still so sugar retailer restaurant sometimes it's always not enough so on a national scale there have been more discussions about maybe the ten Chile refunding the P. P. P. program and all and then allowing businesses to go through again if they need more funding in order to try and keep people on the payroll I think you know this is obviously very hard philosophical discussion because there are some small business owners and everything bothered to apply for president need to it's it's hard because at the end of the day policy makers want to keep people on the job working having some businesses that have a parking PPP level they may have not been allowed to be formally open they did use the time they they brought their staff back to the bottom off the unemployment rolls to do other projects that may be would Amazon dot the US on this our local area some small businesses including in Gloucestershire restaurants use it as a good time to deep clean their restaurants maybe change other restaurant operated for the future I think you're seeing that a lot of Congress men and women are coming on the side of maybe we need to extend this program allows businesses especially small ones on the PPP program really is designed for very small businesses another leg up as we move into the next phase of the of of this current situation and to allow them the flexibility to to of all their business model and what is going to be the the new normal all right to save some jobs maybe even create new ones in the future all this is it because they go what we're dealing with this virus is the unknowns the anonymous and not not just getting sick but how do you run a business when you're not supposed to talk to people with you know other than on a computer or six feet apart from each other you know we're living in a very unique space and time and that system out of being smart about it and she helped washes up it's very very hard to plan even for the government

"Today's episode is brought to you by Lexus. You at Lexus. Their greatest curiosity is you because the most amazing machines aren't inspired by machines they're inspired by Dole that's why Lexus asks different questions better questions more human questions like can you see with your ears and the answers are as inspiring as you are which allowing the police to take guns away from people who judge finds dangerous that included ninety four percent of Democrats eighty five percents Republicans and eighty two percent of independent unspoiled this August even President Donald Trump who otherwise mostly has been an opponent of gun control indicated his support for Red Flag laws traumatic end not permanent so far red flag laws have been enacted by seventeen states plus the district Columbia in Florida where a red flag laws medicine is an example of what many advocate as a way to prevent the mass shootings that have increasingly plagued the United States red flag laws are designed to get mental illness or other factors that might show up in the federal instant background check system and prevent the person from buying a gun from a dealer in the first place the problem is that loopholes it as potentially being a threat to themselves or other people police and courts would have the authority to remove firearms according to Flannery Red Flag Laws on people who have felony criminal record or mental health record those rules are too narrow and too broad they identify lots of people because they had an involuntary commitment. We spoke with Jeffrey Swanson a professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine he said we focused all his attention on the point of sale on the other side the National Rifle Association's website criticizes existing Red Flag Laws as violating gun owners Second Amendment Rights Civil Rights and second described scary situation an employee allegedly had confided to a CO worker that if he was fired from his job he would shoot supervisor and other employees though he would warn the eighty five years ago and wouldn't hurt anybody in the also failed to identify people who do pose a risk we also spoke with Daniel J flannery director of the having to charge the employees with the crime the cops obtained a court order and the next day seized five firearms the Court subsequently issued another order allowing authorities introduction of iheartradio hey brain stuff lauren bogle bomb here in California the manager of a car dealership contacted police and worker in advance so the CO worker could escape thanks to the red flag law the California enacted in two thousand fourteen the police could take action in this case right away without on emissions in state records submitted to the background check system have often enabled people who went onto become mass shooters to obtain guns even when they should have been disqualified begun center for Violence Prevention Research and education at Case Western Reserve University he said this is about putting protocols in place so that when an individual is identify them having guns poses a risk and the person has an opportunity to get the weapons back at some point a flannery said there's due process to that so that it's not authorities away to intervene and take guns away from a person who's perceived as a possible threat they can do that even if the person doesn't have a criminal record or a history of being institutionalized destroy a middle ground between protecting public safety and individual rights a person who's flagged isn't arrested or charged with a crime and authorities have to be able to convince a judge that did some strong public support a Washington Post and ABC News poll conducted in early of September two thousand nineteen for example found that eighty six percent of Americans supported enacted in two thousand eighteen in the weight of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting authorities have utilized it to take guns away for more than two thousand people red flag laws have attract to hold onto the weapons for a year that case described an article by University of California Davis researchers that was published in August of two thousand nineteen in the journal Ause of internal Edmund advocates that are against red flag laws say the seizures of these individuals weapons is a violation of the constitutions guaranteed due process which means the people should have the right to argue their case in court before their guns are taken not after and whether or not red flag laws do much to prevent mass shootings is difficult question to answer the study we mentioned that the of this episode conducted by the UC Davis researchers cited twenty-one cases in California in which a court issued an order to seize guns quote after the subject of the order had made a clear declaration of intent to commit a bash shooting or had exhibited behavior suggesting such an intent but it's not really possible all to prove conclusively that any of the individuals actually would have committed such an act Swanson wrote in Washington Post opinion piece that red flag laws aren't necessary early going to prevent killings by mass shooters except in instances in which alerts citizen notices that an angry young man is amassing an arsenal nevertheless Swanson's imports such laws because he and other researchers have found strong evidence that they reduce another sort of gun violence the cumulatively Inflicts Much Higher Death Poll Suicide by firearm in two thousand seventeen he colleagues calculated that for every twenty guns seized through Red Flag Law one suicide is prevented preventing people with the missile to develop suicidal idealization from getting guns does save lives because research shows that people who attempt suicide by other methods and up surviving eighty to ninety percent of the time but with a gun they're effective at killing themselves almost all of the time Swanson said from the picture of public health that's good enough reason for red flag laws today's episode was written by Patrick Jake

Make sure you go and read that book because you're gonna get some insight into that Clinton investigation from the nineties that you probably haven't heard before because the media doesn't wanna report it straight from the guy. Can I want to start out with this image of this right beforehand? You're the independent counsel. Robert Muller was a special counsel, right or appointed counsel, which the difference between who you weren't what your job was what Muller just did the job is similar, but the name is different.

But it was on the votes for twenty one years statute went away and with that we simply return to the traditional methods of handling sensitive investigations involving potentially the president himself, and that was the attorney general United States or the pres- United States have points a special counsel. So Bobby Muller was appointed by the attorney general United States. Well, he was like he was appointed by by Rosenstein, right because I think that was after Jeff Sessions recused themselves. So you're right. He was the acting attorney general, but let's start from the start James James Comey. Obviously not a fan of the president. We found that every.

But right now, it's going to be marijuana. And and and gall. Yeah. I as I look back. I was in the legislature and looked at over the years we were able to decrease the number of people that were driving drunk, and it became a socially unacceptable thing to do. And I think one of the biggest things that help us along that way was the alcohol Breathalyzer, and the fact that if you did not take the Breathalyzer chest, we're gonna lose your license, right? Massachusetts. Just so you know is one of four states in the country that do not have implied consent for a Breathalyzer for marijuana. In other words, if if today we had this device, and we sold the Boston police pull you over you could not take that test and have no ramification. So that's something. I legislate you're in their wisdom looks at if you know, the governor's told this impaired driving build it that he wants to see passed this year in remember. Of the legislature will be looking closely at this with their forty seven states and the district Columbia that haven't played consent for marijuana Breathalyzer in we don't have it in Massachusetts in. It is a problem. So hopefully, they'll remedy that. Is there a benefit to the police collecting marijuana dater data if they're not using it? Anyway, if they're just using the alcohol data, let's say. In limbo, or whatever. Yeah. I think there will be a deterrent component to that as well. Even well, we're not waiting a while. We're waiting for the legislature. Dak I also think that part of this is education. Believe it or not in many states. Adults twenty percent of adults. I believe in Michigan believe if they can if it's legal to smoke marijuana. You can drive your car. Having smoked marijuana in. You know, people have to realize it's not legal to drive impaired period, period. So one would hope that the education component of this will help to to get people to smart up because while you were I may not do it. It's the person in the car behind us, or whatever that is is driving stolen. Go to pose a problem to us in our family..

So you know, it is definitely a place for relaxation. And then just to be hanging with freedom minded people to where you could just enjoy yourself. And and just just encourage people to keep doing what they're doing in their net neck of the world and just teaching and educating and encouraging people to just to keep pushing back tyranny, and and you know, the state, and and and just so that they can pursue their happiness and have joy. Yeah. And you mentioned the world. I mean just sitting here this morning, I've met people from as far away as Sweden. We just talked to a lady from the UK people are from all over the place, Australia, the guy just interviewed before you. I mean, so literally this is the it's the most international conference that I've ever been to. I mean, you know, we've been to the conferences in New Hampshire, and we've been to some bitcoin Mark, and I have been to some bitcoin conferences, and those those obviously attract people from around the world, but this is a really for the people that don't want. To go to the United States. And you can't blame anybody for not wanting to go to the United States for a convention. This is the one to go to. And it's got a great vibe everybody, here's relaxed. I mean, it's rare you'll see somebody in a suit first of all it's too hot. And Jeffrey Tucker is probably was just gonna say about Jeffrey's like back. I only isn't a student. That's his casualty. He doesn't have a pair of shorts. No, I'm sure people bottom t-shirts shirts. He doesn't wear he wears them under his so. So so Christopher gronkowski from destination. Freedom dot org. We were just in the last segment touching on the IRS. This is an organization that in a lot of people are frightened of you were talking about the moral question of do you want to be giving these people money to support the bankers to support the military industrial complex all the evil in the violence that the government does as you pointed out the IRS is only collecting money to pay off interest on the debt. Is that? Right. Well, that's correct. See that's what the grace commission. Saw was that. The none of the money, that's collected. By the IRS goes to run any aspect of the government, all of it is used for interest payments and transfer payments for the debt. So the more debt that the the, you know, these these so-called elected reps create the more the IRS collects or interest payments on those. And so if you you know, when I began to learn about how the banking system is and the central bankers. Also, like, no, I'm not going to contribute to that. You know? And because what runs our government, obviously is, you know, excise taxes, a number of different things that that are that are imposed on people there in everything that you purchase in that regard all corporations and such. So you know, so that was easy for me to decide to do that. And what I've noticed over the years when people look or talk about freedom and IRS now is they're expecting the IRS to not violate people's rights and to not to have due process proper. What they don't get is IRS is for those that are in that jurisdiction. Okay. So article one section eight clause seventeen of the constitution says that the congress has exclusive legislative authority. They don't have to uphold the constitution in their jurisdiction. They do in the states but not in in DC and the federal citizen being fourteenth amendment. Citizen is subject to article one section eight clause seventeen so people are wanting you know, you know, that the federal government would uphold the constitution in their jurisdiction. And I'm sorry. The course of well established that they don't have to do that. And that's why I always tell people. It's like look when you get a notice of Levy don't say, oh, my do process being violated. If you're not if you're a federal citizen, then of course, you'll. That is the due process. They just have rules, and that's the way it works. They do what they want. I remember one time an FBI guy had called me the calling about someone else. I wanted to talk to me about this other guy that I knew and he says, oh, so do you. I understand from your website that you don't think people should pay income taxes. I said, oh, no, I believe all US citizens, regardless of where they live and resident aliens have a filing requirement. That's what I teach. That's what I believe. Let's see what what happens is that people think that that there's only one United States citizen. That's the thing is is that the IRS defines the term United States by the district of Columbia. These are US district Columbia citizens based created by the fourteenth amendment. Does that mean everybody living in Washington DC, that'd be anybody that would be living or working in DC? If that's where their citizenship is, you know, so that would be a US citizen, but people are practicing that by ignorance every time you're asked are US citizen by DMV or jury duty or voting if you haven't asked your state, what is the definition term United States here? And they'll let you know if it's the district Columbia or not then you can say, yes, I am or not because listen the different United States citizen. Yeah. And I'm not a United States citizen. Well, those are true. That sounds crazy. Can you explain that? Well in the tax code section seventy seven o one it defer to find the term United States as a district Columbia always. Okay. But the United States citizen. That you see an article for section two is the state's the supreme court in nineteen Forty-five had ruled that there were three different types of definitions of the United States one definition to was the federal government. The name of the federal government is the United States. So the United States isn't the same as the United States of America. Or the third definition is the states United under the constitution. That's the states. That's another definition of the term United States. That's not how the IRS default was the first definition. I one would be referring to like America. Then is a a usage of the word United States. That would be geographic in that nature. Was this intended to be confusing like a lot of law is let's have let's have one to two words, but three different definitional whether that was intentional or not, I it's unfortunate. But you know, you ask you know, what, you know, how do the tourneys come to the table and right political law. You know? So I mean, it's like, you're probably, but I don't know. I mean, but but if you don't give. The terms correct. You're gonna not going to be clear. So once I saw this is what you're saying. Is when somebody asks you if you're a US citizen. You don't know what they're asking you because they haven't said, which definition they're asking you about they might may not even know themselves. Right. If the IRS has to our United States in northern if you're if you know that the definition district on these. Well, no, we write to the IRS. I'm not a US citizen a resident alien based on the tax code. So that's that's the definition of the United States. That's the only definition they have. And you're saying you are instead of a federal US citizen..

"So the next section says an officer employee of the US government or the district Columbia may not accept voluntary services for either government or employ personal services exceeding that authorized by law except for emergencies involving the safety of human life or the protection of property. And then just so that we're totally clear on that loophole, and how small it is the the law says the term emergencies involving the safety of human life or the protection of property does not include the ongoing regular functions of government the suspension of which would not imminently threatened the safety of human life or the protection of property. So yeah. It must be in order to accept voluntary service. It must be for emergencies volving the safety of human life or protection of property. Those must be imminent. They must not be function of the ongoing regular functions of government. So yeah, if this shutdown were to stretch off on into February March, April there is zero chance that the IRS would still process refunds that would not fall within the section. They would be prohibited by law from accepting the services of. IRS personnel to to disperse refunds back to tax payers. But am I crazy that they tried to order just that very thing? Didn't they know? You're not you're not crazy. And the reason that they're they're trying to do that is because right now, there are still funds that you can shift around to pay folks and keep things in operation. But this is going to come to a head. I want to include a all copy in the show notes. This is a status memorandum that was sent out by the federal courts, and they updated it initially. They said we've got enough money until today. Friday, January eleventh they've updated that by a week to Friday January eighteenth. But if you're listening to this show next week and. The shutdown is still in place. You are going to see things change drastically. Here's here's what the court say. If existing funds run out in new appropriated funds do not become available. That judiciary will operate under the terms of the anti-deficiency act, which allows us central work to continue during lapse in appropriations this mission critical work again read the criteria that it must meet includes activities to support the exercise of the court's constitutional powers under article three specifically to the resolution of cases and related services. Each court would determine the staff necessary to support its mission critical work, and what that means is we will still convict criminals, right criminal cases will go forward. How those will go forward is going to be a challenge because this is kind of the answer to the slave labor question. Right. It is voluntary that you continue to report for work in the same way that it is voluntary that you pay your taxes. Right. That is.
