How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1
"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

Chinese Lithium Giant Agrees to Three-Year Pact to Supply Tesla
"Everybody rob now. We're here today. We were talking about a potential new battery supplier for tesla. Also we're going to take a look at two b s next delivery timelines some updates. That are happening. There tesla expanding to a couple of new countries and we'll take a look at the updated situation in china as well. We've got no morgan stanley discussing that. Calmer waters for tesla today. Seems like people were really looking for a green day and we got that today. Up three point. Two percent to five hundred eighty nine dollars. Seventy four cents. The nasdaq was really strong today. As well finishing up two point three percent super-quick correction from yesterday and apartments. Were not gonna talk too much about bitcoin today. Only about thirty seconds here. But yesterday i did mistakenly say that tesla started their bitcoin position. Mid march i was thinking of when they sold. A small portion actually started their position either in january or february and announced that on february eighth so just wanted to clarify that and one other thing that i wanted to point out. Just because i've seen a lot of discussion on whether tussles decision making here would influence institutional investors and things like that. It's probably worth remembering that when we talked to alex potter of piper sandler back in february. I asked if he had been getting a lot of calls about tesla investing in bitcoin. In the first place he said quote not a lot to be honest and then added quote. It's not as though we had us have been coming questions on bitcoin after this announcement and so just worth a reminder sometimes when things are happening people point to them as a reason for x. y. or z. Happening things can tend to get and feel very amplified but sometimes that doesn't necessarily match the not trying to say that the discussion about bitcoin and cryptocurrency as it relates to tesla is not important but sometimes in the day to day. Those relatively smaller pieces of the big picture can feel like they're just dominating the discussion and in those cases sometimes it can be helpful. Just have like cleanse and revisit. Some of the things that are relatively more important. So that you don't get or feel bogged down by the smaller details. So those are my thoughts on that and that is the last. We'll talk about bitcoin for the day and for the week pending ilan tweets while recording.
Journalist Daniel Libit Unpacks Amicus Brief Supporting NCAA in NCAA v. Alston Case
"Perhaps the most important moment of this month from a sports standpoint could be in washington. Dc at the supreme court. That's when the much-heralded landmark potentially landmark case will be heard oral arguments will be hurt and there's a lot of controversy going on right now and our next guest is going with with with michael mcmahon. Has shed some some light on that. A friend of the court brief an amicus brief was filed recently in this case the nc. Double a. vs austin and it was discovered by our next guest and his colleague that what these athletes have done may end up hurting more than helping daniel limit joining us. And it's really great to have you on david. Thank you so much. We we've talked in the past with michael mccann. Both of you have really uncovered quite an extraordinary story. Here good afternoon and is a gentle way possible explained of those of us who don't understand this stuff as well as you what this is all about well first of all. Thanks so much for having me on the program. It's a it's an honor. Um yeah as you as you sort of previewed There was a group of former college. Athletes who on february eight filed in the meekest brief which is also called a friend of the court brief in the end of the blame. The allston case This was the eighth emeka. Brief that was filed in this case. But it was probably the most interesting and possibly the most impactful because this was the only breach that was being written and signed off on by actual former college athletes others. Who had weighed in on this. Were economists and law professors and subject matter experts but you know offensively. The people who would have been impacted by changes to the restrictions in compensation or scholarship limits while they were still in school and they were voicing their support for the incident which was kind of interesting because the caption of the case is the blake. The allston allston is shown. Allston the former west virginia running back. Who's the The name on a on a class of of former college athletes. And so you know curious. Who are the athletes who are actually standing up for being simple a and so a couple of weeks ago i started calling around and and reaching out to the eighteen athletes who had signed off on this brief two thirds of them are former olympic athletes But six of them are former major sports athletes. Five of them played basketball in college. And one of them is darren. Mcfadden the star football player for arkansas. Who had a kenya year. Nfl career retired in two thousand seventeen. And those are the ones who i thought. Were most interesting. Because those are the ones from the revenue that the so-called revenue generating sports who you'd think would have the most to gain By changes to the restrictions of Of compensation and In calling around Particularly with mcfadden who is kind of the marquee name used by far and away the most high profile of the former college athletes to sign onto this brief Occurred to me in our conversations with a few of them mcfadden included that their words didn't exactly square with what the brief said that when i was asking them. Sort of what motivated their position on the issue of amateurism What led them to to join us brief. They were kind of making better arguments for the plaintiffs for the players for the allston side than they work for. The incident lay And then through additional reporting and and and you know continuing to interview them it really raise questions whether or not they knew exactly what they were signing onto in the first place and whether or not their perspectives on college sports and amateurism aligned with the incident. Belay at all The las firm. That's filed this brief Is a major international law firm. It's called orc. They've done worked previously for the aa. So this was a serious brief filed by serious group of lawyers but it seem like some of their key voices And and their biggest most high profile name didn't know what they were actually signing up for or really didn't understand the specifics or for that matter. The the overriding point of the Of the litigation in daniel not to turn this into a legal drama but maybe in a small town lawyer runs down to the courthouse on friday and file something quickly just to try to stave something off or two for quick injunction. But we're talking about the supreme court here and of the most important cases That we've ever seen in relation to the ncw has something like this happen. You know well. That's a good question and reach out to law firm which pushback strongly in vehemently against any kind of suggestion that the brief was anything other than fully representative of of all of the athletes who signed onto it But yeah your your. Your point is exactly right. This is a very serious case You know this is probably the biggest college sports case to go before. The supreme court gain a quarter century And these are serious lawyers who filed the brief. And you'd think that they would be able to you know. Gather together a group of former athletes. Who really had a full understanding and appreciation of their side I think one thing that might suggest is how difficult it is. How difficult it might be or the blades. Position to find support among former major Or or major sport or or you know so-called revenue sports athletes And and that seems to be where the sticking point is. I spoke with other people who filed the sign onto the who were olympic sport athletes Who were much more articulate and and sort of informed on the on the points of of what the brief would say and what the blades position is but it does somewhat undermine the the argument that that you know. There's a wide swath of diverse in a diverse group of athletes. Who support the simple as that. It's not just the olympic sport athletes who Don't want necessarily the the floodgates of new compensation to come in but that they're actually people who who played football and basketball who also Subscribe subscribe to that tibet. Thinking as
Cases of Flu Are Down Globally
"Job. Maybe next time you're here you can present. That would be getting green jobs. So i'm just asking when that happened. Richard trumka who is a friend longtime friend of joe biden says about that day one eastone. He says i wish he. The president has paired that. Were carefully with the thing that he did. second by saying. Here's where we are creating jobs. So there's partial evidence from richard trumka. Well you didn't include all of his interview. Would you like to include. How about this. The international union of north america said the keystone decision will cost one thousand existing union jobs and ten thousand projected construction jobs. Well what mr trump. Also indicated in the same interview was that president biden has proposed a climate plan with transformative investments and infrastructure and laid out a plan that will not only create millions of good union jobs but also helped tackle the climate crisis. That guy was peter doocy from fox news and i always hate his questions because he takes four ever to get to the point he just beats around the bush because his conscience is fighting him the whole time and at least that's what it seems like. It's like that tiny little part of them that still has morals and ethics is trying to tell him. He's being deceiving and a bad journalist. But pete here just wants at fox news money one of the more unexpected biden policies. I would say. Just because. I never thought he would actually do. It is that he announced on friday. That trump wouldn't be eligible to receive intelligence briefings anymore. This is the first time that a former president has been cut out of these briefings. But we've never truly had a president trump have we biden explained in that norah o'donnell interview saying quote. I just think that there's no need for him. To have the intelligence briefings. What value is giving him. An intelligence briefing. What impact does he have at all other than the fact that he might slip and say something and he also said that has shown quote erratic behavior. Well that certainly the polite way to say that. He's been acting crazy honestly if he didn't read them well he was president. Why should he get them now. I mean the way. I imagine it. They practically had to create puppet shows and plays to get him the information that was in those briefings like they probably had to act it out for him. The man doesn't or possibly can't read so the story here as promised is about the flus really bad year sir remember. I talked a couple weeks ago. About how bad well not. How bad how good for us it was that. This year's flu season is almost nonexistent. In that was in new york city as it turns out that sort of the case. Globally this reporting from the atlantic followed a doctor from the mayo clinic in rochester minnesota. And they just sort of talked it over with them. What they're seeing in. Why we might be seeing this really good flu season for us. He said on december first that they began testing all patients with respiratory symptoms for covert and the flu so thousands and thousands of these tests have turned up positive for covid but out of the twenty thousand flu tests that they've run which is ten times. The usual number zero have come back positive for the flu since early fall. Eight hundred thousand flu tests in the. Us have been done and only fifteen hundred have been positive. That's point two percent for context. That's about one hundred times so last year. We had a hundred times more cases at this time when we had done. Eight hundred thousand tests back then. The flu positivity rate was anywhere between twenty and thirty percent twenty and thirty percent a lot of other respiratory viruses have disappeared as well well disappeared in quotes because they're still out there somewhere including ones for the common cold. Obviously the reason for this is the number of restrictions and precautions that we've had to put in place social distancing masks etc and all of those help because the regular flu and covid spread in pretty much the same ways however covert spreads more easily because it can be passed on by people who don't even have symptoms in front example just look at all these super spreader events. That didn't happen before. It's not like if you went to the movie theater and just anyone had the flu. You al- suddenly got the flu. There are also differences at the macroscopic level. Like how it sticks to the particles that we exhale when we breathe or talk like cova sticks more easily so is easier to transmit of course doctors
Trump attorneys leave legal team, 2 weeks before impeachment trial

US House delivers Trump article of impeachment to Senate.
"I'm anthony davis democrats marched the impeachment case against donald trump to the senate on monday nights for the start of his historic trial but republican senators. Were easing off. They criticism of the former president and shunning kohl's to convict him over the deadly siege the us capital. It's an anti sign of trump's enduring sway over the party. The house prosecutors delivered the sole impeachment charge of incitement of insurrection. Making the ceremonial walk across the capitol to the senate but republican denunciations of trump have cooled since the january six riot instead. Republicans are pressing tangle of legal arguments against the legitimacy of the trial and questions whether trump's repeated demands to overturn joe biden's election really amounted to incitement. What seemed for some democrats like an open shut case that played out for the world on live television as trumping courage to mav of white supremacists to fight like hell for his presidency is running into a republican party.

Trump entertained plan to install an attorney general who would help him pursue baseless election fraud claims
"Lead story. Today comes from the new york times and they say quote. The justice department's top leaders listened in stunned silence this month. One of their peers. They were told had devised a plan. Along with trump to oust. Jeffrey rosen as acting attorney. General and we'll the department's power to force georgia state. Lawmakers to overturn the presidential election results. This unassuming lawyer. Who worked on the plans names. Jeffrey clarke had been devising ways to cast doubt on the election results to bolster trump's continuing legal battles and the pressure on georgia politicians. Because mr jeffrey rosen had refused the president's entreaties to carry out those plans mr trump was about to decide whether to fire. Mr rosen and replace him with mr kark danial remember. We were talking about like. who's this. Jeffrey rosen person. And i was like well his career official. I don't think he's going to go along with the bullshit. Turns out we were right. He did not go along with the bullshit. The department officials convened on a conference. Call then ask each other. what would you do. If mr rosen was dismissed and the answer was unanimous. they would all resign in protest They're informed packed. Ultimately persuaded trump. To keep rosen in place calculating that a furor over mass resignations at the top of the justice department would eclipse any attention on his baseless accusations. Voter fraud so he didn't he didn't do it for the right reasons. He said If you everyone resigned and mass it would take. He wouldn't say and mass if everyone was designed all at once. Take away attention from my lies. And so he didn't and trump's decision came only after rosen and clark made their competing cases to him in a bizarre white house meeting to officials compared with an episode of the apprentice albeit one that could prompt a constitutional crisis. This should be looked at and light of the impeachment article that will be sent to the senate as majority leader. Chuck schumer has agreed to delay the impeachment trial until february eighth. Some people think that this shows weakness. I do not. I think this was a calculated political shrewd. Move by chuck schumer. I think it allows more evidence to come out about the insurrection which will make it more difficult for republicans to acquit. And i wanna be clear here not because they have morals but because voters do and voters will be holding them responsible It's going to be more morally difficult for them to acquit. And a lot of people say well. We had the momentum. Right after the insurrection to get this vote to acquit and then additional vote to prevent it from running for office again. But that's not the case they wouldn't have had seventeen republicans and they still don't today but as we start to learn more we may be able to push more republicans over the edge and again not because they have morals but because the people who vote them into office do and some of that evidence came to light this weekend including the arrest of a man who had plans to assassinate alexandria. Ocasio cortez self-styled militia members from virginia ohio and states also made plans to storm the capital days in advance and then communicated in real time as they breached the building on both sides and talked about hunting for lawmakers and that's according to court documents filed tuesday while authorities have charged more than one hundred individuals in the riott details in the new allegations against three. Us military veterans offer a very disturbing look at what they allegedly said to one another before during and after the attack statements that indicate a degree of preparation determination to rush deep into the halls and tons of congress to make citizens arrests of elected officials and they even mentioned sealed sealing off the tunnels and and putting gas in them. Us authorities charged the apparent leader of the oath keepers That's an extremist group. Thomas caldwell sixty six of virginia. They're all from virginia in the attack. Alleging that the navy veteran helped organize a ring of dozens who coordinated their movements as they quote stormed the castle to disrupt the confirmation of biden's electoral college victory. Despite this current department of justice officials and federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should declined to charge some of the individuals who stormed the capital so politically loaded proposition. But one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases cases could swamp the local courthouse. You know tough shit. Internal discussions are in the early stages. No decisions have been reached whether to forego charging some of these folks and that's according to multiple people familiar with the discussions and we also learned that trump's campaign paid more than two point seven million dollars over two years to individuals and firms that organized the january sixth rally that led to the riot And that's according to the center for responsive politics and these payments which span trump's reelection campaign. Show an ongoing financial relationship between rally organizers and trump's political operation they were all made through november twenty third the most recent date covered by the federal election commission filings. Which is before the rally was publicly announced. I'm sure we'll see more in the next. Fcc filing so. That's where we are.

The Vampire of Dsseldorf Peter Krten
"As Dusk, fell on February eighth, nineteen, twenty, nine, forty, six, year, old Peter Curtain prowled the bustling boulevards of Dusseldorf searching for his next victim. He stopped outside Saint Vincent's Church, and leaned against the stone wall he watched as Rosa. Olica a young girl of about eight years old sauntered towards him Peter Shot Rosa of friendly smile and asked where she was headed unfortunately. Roseau was unaware that it's often best to stay away from strangers and freely told him her address. Peter. Extended his hand and offered to take the eight year old home as soon as they were alone on a deserted street Peter Seized Rosa by the throat and strangled her aroused by. Her Death Peter Sexually. Assaulted her body however like so many times before sexual abuse was not enough to satisfy him for that. He needed see read Peter pulled his trustee pair of scissors from his coat pocket and repeatedly stabbed Rosa in the chest. He would later claim that only when he saw the gushing blood, did he finally reach sexual satisfaction Peter Stared down at Rosa's lifeless body and noticed that a small wound had formed on Rosa's temple where she hit the ground and it was starting to bleed at the site of the blood Peter was seized by a sinister craving. He pressed his lips around the wound and sucked the blood from Rosa's skull. Peter derived a pleasurable sensation from the act and like when he first killed a sheep as a teenager, it would change his life forever. Vanessa. Is going to take over unless psychology here and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg Peters Consistent Sexual Sadism can be considered a pair of Philip Disorder. This is an abnormal sexual desire that causes harm to others according to the DSM five. They're eight classifications of para phileas and parasitic disorders. Prior to drinking Rosa's blood Peter fell firmly into the category of someone suffering from a sexual sadism para. Philip Disorder. Meaning that he derived sexual pleasure from hurting others but now Peter Succumb to an uncategorized para phillix disorder known as he Motta Linea or the sexual stimulation from blood. This is sometimes referred to as clinical vampirism or R-enfield Syndrome after the character. From. The Novel Dracula. Of course, Peter would never know the name of his disorder. He only knew his taste for blood was more literal than ever before he also suspected that the graphic nature of his crimes would provoke a series police investigation so he needed to tread carefully. Peter decided the best course of action would be to establish an alibi. So while his wife Ow Gustav. Was Out of the House he returned home to inspect his clothes for bloodstains and clean his scissors. Once he was presentable and weapon free he took himself to the movies on his walk home from the Cinema Peter. Thought. It might be a good idea to burn Rosa's body. Not only would this destroy any lingering evidence it would also increase the grisly nature of the crime that night Peter filled an empty beer bottle with the petroleum from one of his lamps then headed back to where he left Rosa but as Peter ventured toward Rosas body, he realized there were too many witnesses to set a fire on detective he hit. The bottle behind a nearby sign and decided to come back later early, the next morning Peter told his wife he was headed to the bathroom, but instead a snuck out the front door of their building he sprinted to the hidden petroleum, grabbed the bottle and made his way over to the hedges where he'd left Rosa's body Peter Poured the petroleum all over. The girl then dropped a lit match onto the corpse as soon as the flames ignited Peter made himself scares within minutes. He was home and crawled back into bed with his wife who was none the wiser a few hours later, construction workers discovered Rosa's charred body but the fire hadn't and Gulf the girl as Peter had hoped only her clothing and. A little bit of her hair had been burned. So she was easily

"Tampa Bay on Friday February eighth coming up here in about fifteen minutes from now we'll talk about the Florida state fair. In fact, will go out to the Florida state fair. The assistant manager for the Florida state fair authority is going to join us here on PM Tampa Bay right now couple stories I want to get to you. The first one involves Candice Owens, the comms director for the conservative youth organization turning points. USA? Kansas. Owens has become like a rising star on the right, and among Republicans and to me, she's basically like a Tommy Laurent or I would say even a conservative version of Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. Somebody who's getting a lot of attention, but doesn't have a deep depth of knowledge when it comes to issues and history and that came out in a huge way today when she was asked by an audience member about the rise of nationalism in western politics, and Owens responded with this. I'm gonna play you the audio. So you can hear it in its entirety. Here's her response. I agree. I I actually don't have any problems at all with or nationalism. I think that it gets the definition gets poisoned by elitist said actually want globalism globalism is what I what I don't want. So when you think about whenever we nationals, and the first thing people think about in Evanston, America's Hitler. Yeah. He was a national socialist. But if Hitler just wanted to make Germany Great and have things run. Well, okay, fine. The problem is is that he wanted. He had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize wanted everybody to be German everybody to be speaking German. Everybody to look at different way. That's not. Me. That's not nationalism. Okay. Where do we start? But if Hitler just wanted to make Germany Great and have things run. Well, okay, fine. The problem is that he wanted. He had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. That's literally somebody that has absolutely no idea what they're talking about. Or what the words they're using mean? She simply has no clue. She doesn't understand the difference between nationalism and patriotism. She doesn't understand what globalism is she doesn't understand the history of violence. We've seen in this world because of nationalism. She literally has no historical knowledge of what she's talking about. Now, a lot of people heard those comments and especially the Hitler part. It filler just wanted to make Germany Great and have things run. Well, okay. Fine. And ran with it. Because again, I I don't know what in the world that means. The the idea that his biggest problem was that. He started trying to expand Germany just that's a serious lack of understanding of what happened. In Nazi Germany. But then she put out a video later. Trying to kind of explain herself. But if you watched it. It was pretty nonsensical. And I just think Republicans have to take a second the right as a whole has to take second say or these the people that we want to keep elevating to the top of the party are these the faces we want to put out there. Because stuff like this is bound to happen when you have a Candice Owens or a Charlie Kirker the turning point USA, founder who said. Insanely idiotic things on Twitter that have no basis in reality. Or you have a Tommy Laurent who stepped in it on abortion back in the day because she didn't understand the issue when you keep putting people out there who are good at regurgitating talking points. But don't really know what they're talking about. Then you're going to continue to have these kinds of controversies that take away from the message should be putting out there. The bigger picture the important issues. And the same thing is happening on the left with Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. Freshman congressman. I've watched her in interviews. I've watched her top policy of seen what she's had to say. There's not a great depth of knowledge there. I compared to Sarah Palin yesterday. Somebody burst on the scene gains. All this national attention creates all this excitement. Among the base. And then as they get more airtime. And our ask more questions. They get exposed. We're in a time period here where the bomb throwers. They get a lot of attention. They make a lot of noise. They get the followers. They get the spots on the cable news shows, but they're really not doing anything to advance the debates or to solve problems. And the reason they're not doing anything on that front is because they really don't know a lot. Candace.

"The February eighth. USDA report weekly export inspections were released yesterday. They were in line with expectations of the trade coming in at thirty five and a half million bushels export loadings are running ahead of the peace estimated by the USDA. So it is a positive story. Overnight trade spot corn futures are trading unchanged. Record this yesterday, bride confirmation that Chinese had purchased a million metric tons of soybeans last week. I would look for this week to be slow on that front is the Chinese are going to be celebrating their new year for those of you. That are keeping track at home. I'm proud to announce that the New York years of fish fishery the Chinese year of the pig, which I find kind of ironic given the problems that they've had with the African swine fever lately, it appears Chinese imports of soybeans for the October through January timeframe were nine million metric tonnes less than last year. And a large part of that may be a result of the African swine fever, which is really disrupted the pork industry. China domestically. Our export inspections came in at thirty five point nine million bushels last week, which was at the top end of trade expectations. Looking at South America. I see that Brazil is now nineteen percent harvested versus last year. When only six percent of the crops had been harvested by this date overnight trade spotted, swimming, futures are trading unchanged. We did a lethargic performance, although higher Russian we'd prices and lower ocean freight should favor the US getting a bigger share of the export market that has not occurred yet as was demonstrated by yesterday's weekly export inspections numbers.

"Hour. The Senate comes up empty handed in its efforts to end the partial government shutdown. Correspondent Linda Kenyon has recap on how the measures played out. It was a day that began with high hopes that the end of the shutdown was near but hopes were dashed after the Senate failed to clear the sixty vote hurdle required a pass to separate bills. The White House back proposal failed by a vote of fifty to forty seven. It would have reopened the government in exchange for five point seven billion dollars for President Trump's border wall and also would have extended temporary protections for some immigrants who have been in the country for years. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, urged senators, not to support it a vote for the president's plan is very simply an endorsement of government by extortion. The second Bill champion by Senator Schumer fell despite this impassioned plea. Our amendment is nearly the same Bill Republicans all voted for a month ago. The Bill would have reopened the governor. Under a short term CR or continuing resolution, February eighth during that time congress and the White House would presumably work out their differences on border security issues. Discord within the Republican party itself over the shutdown became evident when six GOP senators cross party lines and voted with the Democrats to cast the second Bill still at fell short of the sixty vote threshold it needed the final tally fifty two to forty four. The back to back failures made the government shutdown continues in more than eight hundred thousand federal workers caught in the middle will miss another paycheck today, Texas, Republican Ted Cruz blamed the Democrats, it's not substantive. They voted for three hundred fifty miles a wall. So why are they shutting the government down over two hundred and thirty four miles of wall, Senator Schumer and other Democrats told Cruz they didn't shut down the government last month? The Senate unanimously passed the short term Bill to keep the government open. It was leader McConnell's idea everyone thought the president would support it. But President Trump buckled. To the most extreme voices in his party and reversed his position at the eleventh hour, Ted Cruz wasn't buying it. Okay. We get they hate Donald Trump. If anyone in America had missed that point that they really really really don't like this man, they're yelling and screaming and bellowing has made that abundantly clear he was referring to Colorado democrat Michael Bennet who had had enough with the president's demand for a wall. Xijiang gonna build a medieval wall across the southern border of Texas, take it from the farmers and ranchers that were there have the next just take. What is it? So now what I've never been more optimistic damn now, South Carolina, Republican Lindsey Graham joining hands with a bipartisan working group proposing a three week continuing resolution during which time federal workers would go back to work the government would reopen. The congress would negotiate with the White House and reach a deal to end the impasse over the border wall. Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, one of the leaders of the group says it represents a milestone for the first time in thirty four days. You've had a bipartisan group of senators coming together. The other leader is Maryland democrat, Ben Cardin, we are committed to working together to come up with a bipartisan proposal for border security in this country Graham who says he spoke to the president about this partisan efforts as Democrats probably could come away with some wins aren't eight hundred million dollars for refugee assistance. You'll get it. We all need more judges two hundred and fifty more border patrol agents on the border would be good for assault Graham, says the agreement also will have to include something. Else money for barrier is required to get this deal. Done Graham says he does not believe it will be a concrete wall. But rather a combination of border security measures, which in some cases might be fencing and others more border patrol agents or other enhancements the Senate is back at work today. So is the working group whether they can move the ball down the field at all remains to be seen. Linda Kenyon, Washington.

"Shay Stevens. US Senate leaders have agreed to hold votes this week on two competing proposals to end the partial government shutdown as NPR's Susan Davis reports it's unclear if either proposal has the support to pass the Senate on Thursday, the Senate will take up competing Republican and democratic bills to reopen government. The Republican plan includes President Trump's five point seven billion dollar request for border wall money in exchange for temporary changes to immigration laws. The democratic proposal is a stopgap funding Bill to reopen the government until February eighth that will allow border security talks to continue without continuing to tie up unrelated government agencies and workers affected by the impasse. Either proposal needs sixty votes to advance in the Senate, and it's unclear either Bill can get a super majority a narrowly divided chamber the agreement least forces senators to take the first shutdown related votes since it started thirty two days ago.

Well, as usual, there are a lot of people in politics, and in the media whose purpose purposes to inflame, your passion, rather than to reason with you even during the holiday break, but my purpose is different. I've come to inform you to give you information that will enable you can make independent judgments unkind events and encouraging the act on those judgments. Businesswoman. I focus a lot on the numbers. The numbers this week. Twenty four billion dollars the cost in lost productivity and commercial transactions from the last comparable length government shutdown in twenty thirteen. Each the number of stories carried by ABC CBS NBC and MSNBC over the deaths of eleven American children in the New Jersey rehabilitation hospital from something called Endo virus number seven this past October. Right. There are endless hourly story of the gas to migrant children who died within hours of surrendering the US border patrol officers in the high very cold high desert of New Mexico. Thousand points noun, and then up what white says on this last day of trading on the global stock exchange. And fifty nine percent. The number of Democrats and independents who have looked at the likely class of twenty twenty democratic presidential hopefuls and said I want somebody not yet named. So let's talk a little bit about this government shutdown speaker Ryan will retire from congress with a prolonged government shutdown as his final legacy. I'm sure that's not what he wanted. Current expectation is at the house of representatives will left Nancy Pelosi policy speaker on January third and then quickly tasks one or more of the following scenarios. They might pass the continuing resolution that the Senate passed on a voice vote before journey. It doesn't contain border wall money. It expires on February eighth. It was intended to allow time for the house and Senate and the White House to come to some form of agreement and the president has vowed to veto it. And I don't think the votes in either the house or the Senate to override the presidency of at least not at this moment. The second likely scenario is that the house will pass a continuing resolution that funds six of the seven departments impacted by the government shutdown at the levels that had been previously agreed to for the fiscal year. Twenty nineteen. Well. We cannot pass the fat. And if it did pass the Senate, I think it would be very quickly vetoed. And there aren't sixty votes in the Senate to pass it. Let alone seventy five to override that veto or the house might come up with a continuing resolution that funds everything in the balance of the year stripping out the border security funding from homeland security, and then just wait to see what the president does. And that could be a boom. I mean, he just. Extreme measures. We don't know. I would hope that on the third. There's gonna be some back room wheeling and dealing that gets us to a point of compromise bipartisan compromise that lift the second. This isn't good for the government. And it isn't good for any of us citizens, but that's not likely to happen. So let's look at what will happen. Okay. The smithsonian. Museums are open through December thirty first they'd be close. Normally on New Year's say they will remain closed the EPA closes I'm the same day as well as the national zoo. Now, remember that outside of government? The second biggest source of revenue to the city of Washington DC is tourism and just imagine all those eighth graders. This first week in January being there week to go to the capital city and tour the various houses of government, all of which will be close to them. And this is a one once in a lifetime experience. Some national parks may remain partially open during the remainder of this shutdown. For example, you seventy is will remain open. But visitors centers public restrooms and most campgrounds and picnic areas will be closed. So there have been ads on television this week that advise you to use bathroom facilities before entering the park. Other some parts will be completely closed. Forty five thousand four hundred and fifty thousand I'm sorry. It's early on Sunday morning. Four hundred and fifty thousand workers will be required to work with no idea when they're going to get paid. And who are these Seleny as people they're the people of homeland security who protect you the TSA? So if you're traveling this New Year's weekend, please be nice to those people air traffic controllers, the people who keep you safe in the sky are not getting paid one of the most stressful jobs in the world. FBI agents are not getting paid federal marshalls are not getting paid federal prison guards. Secret service, protective, detailed members are not being paid. And we just overnight. Figured out a way, the US coastguards because you know, they're paid out of homeland security but not out of the defense department. So they didn't get paid on the twenty second went all the other military got paid. But they have figured out a work around to get the coastguard paid. Thank god. Well, the Justice Department's working without being paid the that's the federal courts and yes, the Mueller investigation and just as a quick aside. Jess what bring own government owned company is fighting the meal. A grand jury subpoenas mystery deepens the government's response to this supreme court is dude tomorrow. Love a good mystery. But back to the subject for three hundred eighty thousand people workers are being furloughed. They don't work, and they don't get paid. And these are people with families is your people have rents and mortgages to pay. And all this nuttiness offers many, ladies and gentlemen, it's over less than one point two billion dollars in a four trillion dollar but budget, I dare you to even find that rounding error. So this is all about symbolism is all all about. Twenty twenty presidential election. If you wanna know the truth, it is all doubt, Trump derangement syndrome. It's it, but it makes it it's not about. What is security or national security? So and and there is a rumor afoot. A rumor of flood that Pence made an offer to minority leader Schumer of two point five billion. So in other words, half of what the president says, he's demanding and couldn't get back agreed to. So we really are. It's really a very difficult contest. And you know, why to.
