He issued an executive order today saying cities, counties and other governmental bodies would be fined $1000 for having a mask mandate starting May 21st seven or insulin today, signing one of the nation's most ambitious packages of police accountability legislation prompted by last year's outcry for racial justice. Bill's ban. Police from using chokeholds neck restraints and no knock warrants, restrict the use of tear gas and vehicle pursuits and require officers to intervene if their colleagues engage in excessive force. Israel's prime minister has so far dismissed President Biden support for a cease fire in the Gaza Strip after a week of bombardments. Benjamin Netanyahu today said he had no doubt that Israel said Hamas back Many years we turned a military analyst, retired four star general Barry McCaffrey, now and Sir, I've read some media reports that President Biden had a firmer exchange with Netanyahu in private. Then what's been released to the public, But should something be Dunmore? Publicly? It's hard. Hey, you know, there's two different layers of of evaluation doing with this conflict on a military level, a ham fisted police operation by the Israelis and the Great Mosque and Jerusalem triggered it. But there is such a permanent sense of lethal tension between the Palestinians and the Israelis that it's hard to not imagine that some other spark would have set it off. So Israel is the defender. They were being an are being attacked by missiles targeting their civilian population. There's a couple of 1000 been fired Adam so far there, maybe 15,000 more. And so obviously, Israel has to respond and has to deal a blow sufficient to regain the parents. That's the military problem on a political level. It's quite different. There. I think the political arrogance and fear and almost the ethnic racial tension between the Arab and Jewish populations has caused Netanyahu to dig in his heels, and they've got to engage these people. They've got to try and improve their economical out. There has to be a better alternative than just Dying to kill a Jew, and that's where we are now. So it's a tragic event. I think the United States Auto largely stay out of it and forced the two sides in their misery to negotiate in good faith, which are not currently doing why do you say the U. S. Should stay out of it? Because so many people are saying the U. S is not doing enough. Well, absolutely. I think the more liberal members of the Democratic Party had turned against Israel it in some areas. It's approaching anti Semitism, in my view, and the Europeans have done the same thing. So I think Israel is being increasingly isolated. That won't change the calculus and the party Israelis on Self defense. But it may well change the political dynamics of dealing with this issue on the part of the Biden administration, United States But again, I think the notion that the U. S can step in and has the tools economic, political military to actually change. The human dynamics of this is nonsense. I don't think we have that ability. I mean the notion we'd turn off the three billion a year in military aid Israel unless they do what we tell them is nonsensical. If Israel makes the wrong decisions on security, they will disappear. As a nation in people. Netanyahu it seemed to me has to go before we can get in Israeli leadership that understands how to move this thing off dead center. But if you stop a conflict like this prematurely, where neither side felt such Sufficient desperation to come to a political accommodation. Then you barely slow the pace of violence down. But again, I think restraint in part of the United States to try and force the two parties into direct accommodations, even temporary one day at a time Accommodations Is probably on the only way out of this.

During an interview for a bee sees this week, Cheney said it wouldn't shock her if McCarthy gets a subpoena because he had a phone call with the former president Donald Trump. During that riot, well as we continue facial recognition software has the potential to help police solve crimes. In practice. The technology suffers from racial bias and can be abused. That software is primarily been in the hands of law enforcement. But with the website PIM eyes, anybody can now enter the world of facial recognition surveillance and Drew Harwell as a closer look at the Washington Post in tight with Cuomo's Taylor Vance ice, So I want to start with a scenario for you. Drew say, I catch somebody on my doorbell camera taking a package off my porch. I captured the image. How could I theoretically use the Pym Eyes website? You take that image, You open the website. You stick it in, and one second later, the site will have And through more than 900 million facial photos in its database and return a potential results and it'll link you back to the original source from where these other photos came from, and you're off to the races. It's extremely precise. It's it's not perfect, but you would be amazed by how many photos of yourself or whoever you're searching for. Can arise around the weapon. So there's some really creepy implications for thinking how far that goes. No kidding. Because I know you and I we tweet for our jobs. Our pictures are gonna come up quite a lot. Even if we just, you know, hover over your name on the Washington Post website. Your picture comes up. But not everyone's that comfortable being so public. What kind of risks does this technology present? There are a lot of them right? And, yeah, I mean, it's it's impossible to not have your photo online right now. I mean, you have to live in a cave. And you know, we're all just on the Web, so we're all exposed in that way and So you know, I think the issues are down the road is that something like this is going to be used by, you know, an employer, right? Who's maybe doing some background checking on somebody If they put the photo in, uh, the potential, you know, recruit and out, pops a bunch of, you know, party pics or who knows what else? They're gonna maybe think about that person in a different way in, you know, the stocking potential is very real tune. We've seen some, you know, really disturbing it. So it's already where these just creeps online who wanna, you know, find almost exclusively girls or women. They can kind of track them around the Web and learn more about them and And use that as a way to, you know, get all of this private sensitive data about them, and we've spoken before about the legal and ethical questions around police agencies using this kind of technology, but Are there any regulations when it comes to an individual using this? There's really not, and that's I think a huge gap in the regulation that technology is going so quickly. The law is That pretty much zero and there's not even really in any movement, the kind of proposed bills we have around facial recognition or either really limited to specific cities or specific states. Or they're very early in terms of, um just talking about maybe how the government or police use, um or how, um you know specific use cases. But for Anybody just sitting at home. They can use one of these websites. It's it's not difficult for them. It's not illegal for them. And yet it raises all of these real issues that you know. Some people may think maybe we do need regulation for this, right. I mean, if this can be used in such a targeted, harassing way, um, why don't we have a legal foundation from which toe enforce?

And how did visor managed to squeeze 20% more vaccine into the vials in the first place? Christopher Roland has taken a closer look for the Washington Post and talked with Cuomo's Taylor van sites putting liquid into a bottle getting it out again. You know, that's not such a hard task on the surface, but the report Visor. Researchers have been working on that since August, months before the vaccine was even approved how they turn five doses into six. The thing to know to start with is that all liquid Pharmaceuticals that are contained in vials that are suitable for injection have a certain amount in the vial called overfill, and that's because a certain portion of Of the dose inevitably gets stuck in the needle and syringe is left there in different spaces and voids in standard needles and syringes. So last summer, Fizer realized In a time of scarcity with production, you know, not going to be met meeting demand in the beginning of the year this year that they could utilize that and turn it into a six dose in there. Five does files, so it wasn't necessarily an accident, even though as I recall, it was, it was pretty big surprise when pharmacists were saying, Hey, we've got some extra serum here. That might be useful. That's right. So Fizer started working on this, but they didn't make it part of their application for their emergency approval with the FDA. The reason that they didn't go public with it and make it part of their application was that they weren't sure there was enough of the special syringes around the low dead space syringes that are required to make sure you can use all six doses. So they didn't make it part of their approval process on then, after the vaccine was released on bail after December, 11th providers in hospitals and clinics started realizing well, there's more here if they have the race syringes. They could get it out on they could use it. So that's how it's sort of did catch everybody by surprise governments, hospitals providers, um, and even syringe manufacturers so earlier in the manufacturing process of this visor vaccine, then Does that mean that they could be shipping more if they had, you know more files or more syringes or what? What it means is that they can actually get more doses out of the same amount that they're shipping. So when the FDA approved this in early January Saying, yes, indeed, this can now be called a six dose vial. That regulatory change allowed Fizer to increase the amount of vaccine that shipping on paper by 20% immediately and it also not, incidentally, allows them to get 20% more credit. Towards their billion dollar contracts with the government and hopefully a little bit faster Timeline for all of us to get vaccinated as well, That's right. I mean, certainly this is a very precious commodity and having that six dose if you can get it out with the right syringe on if they can get enough syringes out there to the people on the front lines, providing the vaccines,.

Horace Anderson says the city King County and the state failed to protect his son, Lorenzo and others after Seattle police vacated the East Precinct. After a third night of unrest and now deadly violence in Wisconsin. In the wake of that police shooting of Jacob Blake Sheriff David Beth said one resident made this request. I had a person called me. Say, Why don't you deputize citizens who have guns to come out in patrol the city of Kenosha? Nothing much. Oh, hell, no to take a closer look at how America is reacting. We turn to Dr Jennifer Kubina. She's the author of Hands Up. Don't Shoot. Why The protests in Ferguson and Baltimore matter and how they changed America. Jennifer is an associate professor in the School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University. And Jennifer Now we've got the situation in Wisconsin. How is this different from what happened in Ferguson in Baltimore? In many ways, they're similar in that you have people protest? Being because another black individual has died at the hands of the police and and many feeling overwhelming off the adjacent to demonstrate because they realized if they don't demonstrate we're going to continue to see more black people dying at the hands of the police, and the reality is, protesters want to see real concrete changes the policy and practice that put an end to police violence. When you interviewed hundreds of people from Ferguson and Baltimore What were you trying to find out about their feelings about police and police shootings? I really wanted to understand. Of experiences with the police and how these experiences shape their perceptions. I also wanted to get a better handle on what galvanized the Black lives matter Movement, which at the time in 2014 had already a half day had already started a year fire After Joy Zimmerman was acquitted in the death of Trayvon Martin, by the time was a 17 year old male and I also wanted to understand, given the militarization of police forces demonstrated. I wanted to see how that affected active building a engaging future protest. So what did you discover? Would the make up of a police force if it was more diverse? Would that make any difference? I actually interviewed 200 protesters and residents. And what I found is that among the people I spoke with 25% believe that highly more black officers and that it would help you make where, because they believe black offices are more courteous and respectful than white officers. However, another 25% are you that black officers can be just a regressive for black civilians, and this sentiment was much more common among people. From Baltimore who actually had direct encounters with black officers gender for why are some of the demonstrators turning to rioting and looting? We know most of them are not. But why do some do that? You know when riots across much of the research shows that it's really the language of the unheard, and they are questions of pent up anger. This is really symptomatic of systemic societal problems when there's defeated, cleave it, but that is really not been adequately addressed. And when that is coupled with people feeling Time and time again. That one applies in the car and for people who are constantly marginalized and constantly ignored, Ultimately, a conservative, powerful mechanism to have their grievances heard, And it's not only a mechanism to be heard is also a way to oppose a system that oppresses how do we move forward? It's quite challenging when we think about moving board, But you know, one of the things that we often don't pay attention to is his history and we've been repeating history for 420 years because the United States really have Not publicly and systematically addressed the history and legacy of slavery. And so many people went. They see the badge there, seeing this legacy of racial injustice, and so any healing and trust is to transpire. Or, if you want to see that place is important to recognize the pain of the harm that as a nation we really need engaged in truth, telling about the harm that has been caused in the role of law enforcement and producing and enforcing harm on many marginalized communities. Not only is it important to take to recognize I don't take responsibility for the harm. It's also important for restitution and reparations to take place. Insured.

"With Elisa Jaffe, I'm Rick van Cise. Our editors Bill O'neil some of the top stories. We're tracking President Trump today said alleged spying on his campaign will turn out to be bigger than Watergate speaking at the White House. Trump records to New York Times story that detailed an FBI undercover ever effort meant to find out if his campaign was working with the Russians Trump has repeatedly accused the FBI of spying on his campaign politics. Locally Democrats in the state house are demanding that conservative Republican Representative match shave Spokane valley be reprimanded for far-right speech and activities. They also went shea removed as the top Republican on the house committee on environment at energy, no comment, yet from shea the Labor Department released the April jobs report today, and the employment rate continues to fall BC's Mark Remillard is sifting through the numbers. And he spoke with komo's Taylor van Cise. That's right. Very solid jobs report beating expectations. Pretty significantly two hundred sixty three thousand jobs added in the month of April beating the expectation of about one hundred and eighty one thousand as a consensus there, but unemployment also reaching a fifty year low three point six percent wage growth stagnant compared to last month, but still up three point two percent over twenty eighteen a year ago. So very strong jobs report seems to show that the economy is shrugging off some of the concerns that we had earlier this year that there would be a slowdown in two thousand nineteen so far that has not occurred. There have been some concerns about people being under employed or thinking about leaving the job market any numbers on folks, not looking for jobs anymore. One thing about this is that the jobs report showed is made up of two surveys. And and they can put at each other one is a survey of employers, and that's where you saw the strong hiring Americans getting back to work. But then you have the survey of of sixty thousand households in that showed fewer Americans working or even looking for work. And in that case, it does show a labor force. It could be because baby boomers are starting to retire in greater numbers. You have though this issue of prime workers twenty five to fifty year old four year old who have declined over the last two months. And so that is going to lead to some conflicting opinions as to why they may be that group may be just unskilled. There may be a skills gap there for them to get the jobs that they need and could lead to higher wages. But then you look at the fed chair Jerome Powell who's essentially said it's still up over last year that prime group participation and so. Is the it. It is a sign of a still improving economy. So you can look at these things two different ways. Really? But the labor participation does appear down. Now is there any cause for concern on higher commodity prices? Because I would assume a company sees these sort of numbers and thanks, okay. Well, we can charge five cents more for our gadgets since sprocket s-. Well, certainly that's possible. And you know, what the but bringing back to the labor participation going down. You know, you're going to start to see wages go up. So that's a cost to now in the last two months wages have been stagnant. But if the the view that there are prime workers who are out of work because they're unskilled people who are going to have jobs could demand more. And so that could put pressure on wages going up more cost that could get caused a passed down to consumers as well. Of course. And we could see more cost per goods exactly what you mentioning there. But overall a pretty remarkable job. For jobs report here ABC's, Mark Remillard with us on KOMO news. Thanks, mark. And that's komo's Taylor van Cise.

"With Elisa Jaffe, I'm Tom Glasgow. Jeremy grater is at the editor's desk. Nice to have you with us as we take a look at some of the day's top stories. President Trump is refusing to call his decision to keep two hundred troops in Syria, a reversal the president defended his decision and argued that ISIS is being destroyed. He announced in December. He was pulling all US troops out of Syria. And the president also saying he is looking forward to seeing special counsel Robert Muller's final report. And after numerous reports this week that that report may be available or at least presented to the department of Justice as early as next week that now appears not to be the case where today out of Florida that the owner of the New England Patriots faces misdemeanor charges. Police say this has to do with the sting at a massage parlor ABC's. Aaron Katersky is following the story and spoke. With komo's Charlie Harker. What do we know right now, we know that Robert Kraft was videotaped twice according to Jupiter police entering a strip club strip mall massage parlor in Jupiter, Florida. And based on what activties were seen on that videotape. Police have moved to charge him with solicitation of prostitution. He's one of twenty five men charged in fact as part of a much wider crackdown on sex trafficking. That's been going on across the state. Are we hearing anything from Crafter the NFL we are hearing from Bob Kraft that he denies it. And from the NFL that they're reviewing the matter, and it's important to note that as an NFL owner craft is susceptible to potential discipline. If he is found to have engaged in conduct detrimental to the league and President Trump weighed in today as well. He called it very sad. He said he was surprised to hear the news. Although he said quickly that that Kraft has. Denied it. It's an interesting spot. I mean craft has been certainly a lifelong democrat, a friend of President Trump Trump often mentions craft and the patriots, and as an example of winning, but is administration has also and human trafficking. So we're not sure whether this will do any permanent damage to the relationship. These are misdemeanor charges Aaron if he were to be found guilty could he face jail time. I don't think so not at a misdemeanor like this and without a criminal record. And he has not been arrested, but a warrant will be prepared Monday. It's likely that he can arrange to have an attorney up here on his behalf. And and perhaps, you know, get rid of the case that way. All right ABC's Aaron Katersky following the story for his thank you, Erin. And that's komo's Charlie Harker reporting President Trump is expressing concern regarding the arrest of a US Coast Guard Lieutenant during a White House photo op today Trump was pressed about. The suspect who allegedly plotted violence against Democrats and reporters, I think it's a very sad thing. I've expressed that, but I'm actually getting a very complete briefing in about two hours. Trump was asked if he bears any responsibility for his language. He responded quote. No, I don't I think my language is very nice and quote in earlier remarks, White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said the media often blames the president and argued that Trump often condemns violence or threats of violence.

Thanks for joining us. What bar the feds exactly looking for? Well, it's funny. They're kind of looking for everything that has to do with Donald Trump's inauguration. We reviewed the subpoena that was given to the inaugural committee yesterday, and it's very wide ranging they want every piece of paper that has to do with donors who donated and how they're a fundraising what they got in exchange for their donations. What events they were able to attend photo. Is that kind of thing they also want to everything having to do with spending vendors contractors, everything according to the experts you've talked to for the article on. What does this really mean? What does the signaling? It seemed to be a sign that there is perhaps in its early stages. But there's a real investigation underway by. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan related to the inaugural. It's a little hard to know. You know, why it's so wide ranging is it that this is essentially just casting their net, very wide is it that they think this was a very problematic endeavor, and they wanna see everything as a result. Or is there something in particular there after and they don't want the people involved in the inaugural committee to kind of understand what their real interest is. So they're just asking for everything with we don't know that yet we're talking with Washington Post investigative reporter Rosalind Helderman who seen this subpoena and Rosalind it seems the question though, still comes back to the foreign contribution question. Our influences at still kind of central to this probe. That's definitely seems to be a piece of it. We have known that going pretty far back by more. The special counsel was asking some questions about the possibility of foreign donors to to the inaugural at indeed that was one of the areas in particular that the subpoena sought with any information about foreign donations to. Legally give a donation to any political committee, but including inaugural committee in the US, you have to be either a citizen or a US legal resident so any foreign money that came in to fund the festivities, what would have been legal and the White House reaction. I hear Sarah Sanders saying is basically hysteria over President Trump just being an office. Yeah. You know, they're they're the they're now ingrained serve any one of these investigations. They say it has nothing to do with the president and is not important. And I think that's the stance that are taking here.

Stephen, we all know oil, traditionally means money around the globe and citgo has been cash. Cow. If you will for Venezuela over the years, hasn't it certainly has been a major lifeline for the government. There now has the Trump administration impacted sit goes business model, and why is this putting pressure on Maduro and his government at this point the model of Cisco when it was purchased by back in nineteen ninety was to have refineries that were capable of refining, very low quality crude oil coming out of Venezuela. So it gave Venezuela access to the US market, and it gave Citco access to Venezuela, which has the largest crude oil reserves in the world. So what the Trump administration is trying to do is to disrupt that relationship and to make sure that any money should have gone to purchase oil from Venezuela would end up in a block to count on able to to be sent on to Venezuela. Now, are there any end around citgo may be able to exploit if the goal were to be continuing to fun? Funnel money to the Madero administration. That would be difficult mistook oh can can try to keep running as an organization pricing by buying oil from other other suppliers, but it's never really done a lot of that. Some some of it. The the refinery up in has an Illinois gets crude oil from KENDALL largely and from the United States, but the big refineries that has on the Gulf Coast would have to look elsewhere. And they would have to do that at a time when Valero and Chevron to other refiners, I use Venezuelan. Crude oil will also be looking for new sources, and it doesn't solve Venezuela's problem as to what it does with the half million barrels a day or so that have been heading toward the toward the Gulf Coast. So lots of reorganizing that need to go on. It's not clear how all that would shake out. Now, what does all this mean to all of us who are putting gasoline in our car? Ars? We we know how jumping the oil markets can be in any whisper stress. Let a lot of potential crisis. So the gasoline prices are are relatively modest right now. So that gives the administration a little wiggle room. Barbara will depend on whether the Venezuelan oil ends up. Not being sold at all in which case that could add pressure upward pressure on gasoline prices, unless that gap is filled in by countries like Saudi Arabia Iraq, which have some excess production capacity. So that this is an important thing to see how it all shakes out whether or not Venezuela. The oil ends up being bottled up.

"With Elisa Jaffe, I'm Tom Glasgow. Jeremy grater is at the editor's desk. It's good to have you with us on this Thursday afternoon. President Donald Trump congratulating Democrat Nancy Pelosi hours after she was sworn in as house speaker Trump telling reporters during a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room that Pelosi's ascension is a tremendous tremendous achievement. And the new speaker of the house is speaking right now. And we are making an effort to join the tens of the president of the United States separate from that. We are sending what the Senate set also passed which is a Bill to extend to have a continuing resolution until February eighth taking their exact date from the Senate that would cover homeland security. Give us the weeks needed to negotiate an agreement to open up government in that department. Again, we've taken worse for word, and I'm going to yield any woman after Mr. Hoyer to our distinguished chair of the appropriations committee to demonstrate how purely Republican senatorial. These measures were so we've separated out there to boats one on the eight departments of government that could be open now to meet the needs of the American people to meet the needs of the American people to protect our borders, and and to protect our workers. And again, the other Bill is mostly about protecting our border. So and that's spirit. I wanna yell try distinguished democratic leader of the house. Mr. Hoyer to talk about the need for us to open up government. Thank you very much. Congratulations..
