Marxist History Is Repeating Itself

"All of this is just indicative of how Marxism is playing out. If you've read American Marxism by Mark Levin, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Chapter six, Chapter one. It really describes how these institutions in America have just been hijacked. Write everything. I mean, everything has been hijacked. Nothing is the way it looks. Everything is some sort of, uh, to reference the Soviet Union like politburo and these and these ministers of propaganda, and they're in line force mint, federal law enforcement and I support law enforcement. You know, I actually was a volunteer cop in Jersey and for for like, two years, and my brothers served both of them. 20 years, NYPD have nothing but respect for law enforcement, But it's Sad to say. At the federal level. We've seen it time and again. There are some bad apples that are Trying to spoil the bunch. And that's just not there. I mean, we see the same thing in the media. We see the same thing in in the schools. You've got teachers that come in with very altruistic, altruistic. Excuse me, Um Rationale of why they want to become a teacher, and then they get there. And that is all kind of, um, usurped by the unions and them saying No, no, you've got to do this and you've got to teach this and we're going to do this and parents. I don't want to put this on the parents, but the parents have a role. Have been taken a back seat, some of them because they don't know better and some of them because they're too busy because they're trying to make a way for their family. So when we look at all of that stuff It's like, man. We're looking at the same thing that we saw. In our own history. A 20 years ago. And it's happening right before our very eyes the violence in the streets of last summer, we've seen that play out.

"How can the federal government help protect workers from heat stress and he'd related injuries and deaths. Well i department of labor is is right now taking quite a few independent actions about this as they should specifically the osha is moving forward occupational safety and health administration because they have to now set a standard for what is a dangerous heat level so that we can protect our outdoor workers and our indoor labor's we had talking about the agricultural community act construction workers which talking about people that live in factories and they have to begin to set standards recognize in that heat is just as consequential as other pollution levels and our workers need to be protected but secondly they are going to sort of rethink their complaint response in their enforcement strategies because people have been complaining about the excess heat. We have to prioritize those complaints. We have to come down and enforce the law. There are general provision about how we protect workers and make sure that they can actually get their concerns heard in move forward but beyond that this some marvellous opportunities that we have across the federal government to start investing in things like cooling centers in every community. We have an ability to actually make sure that off federal programs if we build basically opportunities in our system which we are doing in have already done. You can actually use money. That was set. Aside at the federal level in states for energy efficiency in you can get seniors the air conditioning. They need to survive. We are talking about pulling out every stop to make sure that our seniors of protected the communities of color and the outdoor workers that are experiencing excess heat stress nevermind excess pollution and lack of investment. Actually get the investments we need and that would also notice it. We'll talk about cooling centers that would include schools as well in terms of our young people right. Absolutely you know. Our education department is is focused a lot to end the bill back better agenda. That president biden is in is planning to invest in and working with congress. Now has money. That's going into resilience money. That's going into us. Schools match those up in you have opportunities almost in every community to have a cooling center in schools ready for when the heat gets high..

Another possible reason for wall street slump.

If the Federal Government Won't Enforce the Law, the States Need to Enforce the Law

"People are saying well. Charlie federal the federal government is in charge of immigration. Law says all those states are able to assist in immigration regulation and enforcement it is the federal government that has the legal power to enforce. Us immigration laws. The us constitution includes a supremacy clause would prevent state laws interfere with immigration enforcement by the federal government. It is so interesting and frustrating that republicans fall for this nonsense. Let's just use a modern example. I'm going to read this again. The constitution includes a supremacy clause with prevents state laws from interfering with immigration enforcement by the federal government. You think that portland and seattle and san francisco and los angeles complied with that under donald trump when they said ice is not allowed in our cities when they declared themselves sanctuary states and sanctuary cities. You remember that remember. When city said we we're going to defy federal immigration law and republicans. Were just like oh yeah. that's okay. They're just a little nuts in seattle and portland. We're going to let them do it. So let me get this straight seattle and portland san francisco chicago new york and philadelphia and say we are not going to implement federal immigration law but texas can't mobilize twenty thousand texas rangers. National guardsmen to go arrest. People that are coming into their state illegally across the board. You see this is one of the problems with the republican party because the republican party is still living in the nineteen eighties. They don't realize that the stakes have been raised and all of a sudden the other side. Yeah they defy federal immigration law. And they did whatever they wanted to do because they pick and choose what laws they wanted to enforce. What i'm saying is if the federal government will not enforce the law and the states need to start enforcing the law

Were posing problems there. Shays rebellion inability to commerce between states to mint currency. It became more and more clear that some form of a federal government was necessary. The question is what kind of government do we want to form now. A sloppy way to talk about the american stories say we had two founders one in seventeen seventy six and one in seventeen eighty seven that is not true there is an a divine connection between the truths of the declaration of independence and the laws of the constitution of the united states

Debunking Joe Biden's Latest Lies on Income Tax

"The top 1% pay 40% of all income taxes. The bottom 50%. That's 50 out of 100. There are Democrats listening. Paid just 3% and I rounded up. It's actually 2.93% of the total federal income tax burden. So 50 out of 100 people pay three cents on every dollar. And one out of 100 pay 40 cents on every dollar. You know, folks, Listen, you want the rich to pay more? Make your case. What bothers me about Griff. There, Loser Joe Biden is corrupt zero Him and Obama and others Hillary Clinton and others career liars without a shred of dignity or character. Stains on this country. Is that they don't make the case. What they do is they manipulate useful lemming liberals. They manipulate them with racial arguments and emotional arguments about class warfare because they're afraid if they tell liberals the truth that even some liberals won't be in their corner. Why not just come out and tell the truth that the majority of the income tax burden in the United States falls on the richest one in 10%? I'll give you that data in a second about the 10% in a minute. But why not? Just say that and we'd like them to pay more? Make your case. I don't agree. We could vote against you. But at least we won't know you're a liar and a man with no dignity. Who's a career grifter? But because you're a loser like Joe Biden, you can't tell people the truth. So you manipulate their emotions and you lie to them and you say no. The middle class are getting worked over in the tax code. They are The bottom 50% of taxpayers pay 3% of income tax. 3%

If you apply we'd love to help we love to be part of the application and we can even help support it in the following ways so really think about. This is a team sport. That's what federal funding is about. This is not organization organization. We all have to be a mess. Worked together as a as a really good point. Do you think about like major theories of change to the especially like in human services space like everything's connected to everything else so so hunger is connected to homelessness which is connected to education which is connected to mental health. Which is right. It's all it's all put together And understanding like i love. I love the idea of of if you notice something and it wouldn't be good for you but it would be good for somebody that's adjacent to you like reaching out to them and send you can help because we all know that grant really like it when they get joint applications as they like to see organizations working together to solve the problem by like pooling resources and and attacking it people different angles watts. Think that's a good point. Yeah you know in to the federal government's credited especially in the early cheese thousands or pardon me that early twenty times we started seeing more and more federal grant applications require partnerships very explicitly. Now we're encouraging collaboration. Please work with other people. We hope that works out. Well for you. All could very specifically as a requirement in two different places. We see it or i guess even three different places we see. Many federal grants is one in your program limitation plan so very specifically being able to map out your partners. Here's everybody's responsibility. Here is even a contingency of one partner. Something happens to and that organization save closes down the feds from a program plan. Implementation standpoint are looking for very clear specificity around. who are you working with. what are they doing. What are they accountable for. And then the second part of that equation is the budget if that program plan implementation. That says andy.

"Does it make sense to pursue these opportunities if you qualify and what should be aware of going into well so let me take this in a pieces and say insa questions piled together isn't it. Yeah but but it's alright. It's a great series of questions. And let me. I say i'm not sure that the right way to look at covert as is a once in a lifetime opportunity for federal funding on one hand on. We know that there's going to be more money as a result of cares or was it is more money as a result of our dc looks like it's poised to pass another large fending package sometime in the next six months so on one hand there's more money in the system than there ever has been and therefore there more opportunity for nonprofits in so many others To access funding. Maybe in a way they haven't before having said that every single year outside of crises the federal government distributes eight hundred billion dollars in federal grants. And so i i don't wanna I hope that folks don't look at federal funding a crisis related Or crisis exclusive revenue opportunity for their organizations one. Because i think there is every single day every single year federal funding opportunities that are community organizations and governments can and should be participating in that. They aren't right now. And the other reason i say that is. There's a lot going on right now. And i think frankly from an administration standpoint at the local state level people are still very much figuring out how to run our programs. And i think it's important for especially nonprofits and not feel the pressure to go chase money if your general if you're if you're genuinely not ready for it on this is the only chance you're ever going to have to get into federal funding streams at promise. There's a lot of opportunity every single year that exists. And you're better to wait for a moment where you're ready and you really see. A funding opportunity makes sense for your organization than to jump into a space. And again i'd say so much So much deference that appreciation to my colleagues and former colleagues in government I know how hard this would be to be doing. If i were in your shoes on and i would just say so. Many folks are still figuring out how to administer arpaio Both at the local and state level. And it's really tough. I think especially maybe a small organization to make a big commitment federal funding. When you're not entirely yet clear on what's expected of you and by the way i tell you the same thing for a major gift from a private donor. It's a lot easier as an organization to be able to manage in succeed. If you know what the what's expected of you. And i think in many ways we still don't know what those answers are yet here part of it especially with the funding cam. Recently it was for very specific things in some cases. It's something like rental assistance right and and you would see organizations..

"This is one a. I'm jen white in washington. This year there have been ten federal executions and three more scheduled to take place before the end of next month. The last time the government executed that many people was an eighteen ninety six putting the trump administration on track for the most federal federal executions in modern history. Last year attorney. General bill barr announced the resumption federal executions. After a sixteen year hiatus the executions will continue right up until president elect. Joe biden takes office. Why is the justice department pushing through these executions. Does it align with public opinion and are the state's using capital punishment in the same way here to discuss is lily. Ns aguirre she's a senior reporter at the intercept covering the us criminal justice system with a focus on harsh sentencing and the death penalty liliana. Welcome to one a. Thanks so much for having me. Also with us robert dunham executive director at the death penalty information center. That's a nonprofit organization that studies capital punishment. Robert thanks for being here having so let's start with what we're seeing overall with capital punishment. Robert what are the trends. We're seeing at the state level and the federal level there's a long term trend at both Both levels away from capital punishment. At least up until this year's executions There were an average of more than three hundred death sentences a year in the nineteen nineties. This was going to be the sixth consecutive year under fifty even before the pandemic and we have fewer. New deaths is now This year than ever in the modern history of the death penalty and we know why. That's the trend. Well there are a number of factors One is that evidence has grown over the course of time. The death penalty continues to be administered in an arbitrary and discriminatory way we also have one hundred and seventy two documented exonerations Innocent people who were wrongly convicted wrongly sentenced to death and we're now seeing about one exoneration for every nine executions which is a horrific error rate on top of that conservatives are beginning to say that the evidence shows the death penalty is not a deterrent. It doesn't do what it's supposed to do. And it costs a whole lot. More than a system whose harshest punishments along prison term or life without parole well jordan posted on facebook without even getting into the racial disparity. We have evidence that the death penalty is more expensive than life without parole precisely because we have an imperfect government. I can abide such a system in power to kill anyone robert. Can you explain more about the expense when we compare the death penalty to life in prison. Sure most people think that the cost of the death penalty is the cost of drugs to carry out an execution But that's simply not the case Death penalty trials cost more far more than any other trial. In fact the data shows that it costs more to charge a case as a capital case and resolve it with police. So you don't even go to trial than it does to charge a case non-capital yet conviction and entirely through the appellate process the cost also of the death penalty isn't just the cases in which the execution occurs. It's all the cases in which the death penalty is sought and not returned all the cases in which the death penalty is sought is returned and is turned and all the cases that result in exonerations so You end up with a small portion of capital cases actually becoming Death penalty verdicts And wants a death. Penalty verdict is returned. The single most likely outcome of that case is that the conviction or death sentence will be overturned. So it's very wasteful system. It doesn't do what it aims to do for the most part and the appellate process takes years. It's it's taken in some instances as much as forty years both to execute somebody and to exonerate somebody so the length of time you're in the court system has nothing to do with the quality review. Or whether you're getting it right liliana there's the federal system and then there's the state system. How those systems work will you know they. They work similarly You know. And i think that one of the things that has been surprising to many americans with the return of federal executions is is that they've learned first of all that the federal system exists. The it's important to note that bill barr didn't bring back the federal death penalty. I've seen that and headlines a lot. It's important that people understand that the federal death penalty never really went away executions. Were just on hiatus so to speak and so so Before as you noted execution at the federal level had been in two thousand and three when when the death penalty returned after the nineteen seventy-six landmark decision in gregg versus georgia. Which kind of what. We understand to be the the modern death penalty era so to speak. The federal government didn't reinstate the the federal death penalty a for many years until for many years after that and and when it finally did it was really as part of the expansion of the war on drugs. You saw in one thousand nine hundred eight. What we what we call the drug kingpin act which expanded the federal death penalty to apply to of a narrow set of crimes that were committed in the context of of drug trafficking and we prosecutions under that that law. But it really wasn't until the nine hundred ninety four crime bill that added some sixty new crimes that were now death eligible that we see the kinds of the huge wave of new new federal prosecutions and these are carjackings their kidnappings resulting in indepth. And they're all kinds of other crimes that previously could have been and still could be prosecuted at the state level so so the systems are actually similar in many ways and i think more similar than i think americans realize well one of the criticisms about this latest spate of executions is that they will take place during the president's lame duck period on the first time a president has done this and more than a century. We did get a statement from the doj on the timing of this decision which says quote the department intended to resume executions in december twenty nineteen however due to litigation. The process was suspended. Once the supreme court ruled in favor of resuming executions. The department has proceeded month with the exception of october since july. Twenty twenty robert sounds like this wasn't meant to happen on the president's way out. Is this something that people had been expecting from the trump administration. I think the people expected that the trump administration would attempt to carry out executions. But the manner in which they have done so Is so out of step with the rule of law out of step with american history. And then i think you've got to take what they say with a grain of salt and look more at what their actions are There had been no federal executions at all for seventeen years and most of that time The reason there were no executions because there was litigation ending in washington federal district court challenging the method of execution and the legality of the way in which the federal government adopted. it's what's called an execution protocol. That lawsuit was in place when The federal government said that we don't have drugs to carry out the executions. Let's put it on hold at that time. The federal district court issued a briefing schedule To make sure there was an orderly way of making a checking to see that. If they're going to executions they were going to follow the law and what happened was The trump administration said that it located new execution drugs in twenty twenty nineteen and instead of complying with the orders of the federal court It announced its new protocol. It filed that in the court and then it immediately issued death warrants directed at individuals who are not parties to that lawsuit trying to get the executions to take place before the court could determine whether they're lawful the that the.

"That is tomorrow's show. Today we are talking about what happens or could happen when homeland security becomes homeland policing, and we're joined today by a former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Jay. Johnson Barbara mcquade is also with us. She's a professor of law at the University of Michigan and a former US attorney as well. Now. I'd like to actually. Spend the rest of the program taking a step back with both of you because I think one of the things that are that I'm trying to understand is. Those arrests away from Federal Property Aside, which there's obviously questions about the legality of that the deployment and the presence, and even the firing of tear gas on protesters by Federal Police isn't the basic problem and I'll start with secretary. Johnson, that all of that is legal that most of what is happening is happening within the bounds of the law and yet it is still in your mind as you've been saying. A violation of what Americans rights should be or the what the purpose of the Department Homeland Security should be that we can have this violation within the bounds of the law. So. Let me elaborate on. What I think. People including those who wrote the OP ed mean when they say homeland policing homeland security was created for very very discreet missions and in our federalist system of of. Federal National State Governments. Homeland Security is not a nationwide on the street police force like they're they have in in other countries. and. First and foremost consistent with the tenth. amendment. Public Safety on the ground on the streets of American city is a local function. So it's like you know, where do you wear the? Conservatives when you need them. And so people are objecting to what appears be an attempt by our president to create a federal policing mission by having federal civilian law enforcement on the streets firing tear gas at people people who are engaged in protests, and so that's the fundamental problem here. That's the fundamental disconnect that people are raising through throughout beds and otherwise if you know as I keep saying I, think it's you know. decided a very basic matter making things worse not better from public safety point of view. Barbara mcquade. I think that. You raise an interesting point, which is what the law tolerate, and should we consider changes in the law I think we have to be able to protect federal property but I think the way that this administration is going about using it is what is so problematic and do we need to change the law? To reflect our values in a better way, the use of military garb, the camouflage suggest militaristic. Presence that is not helpful as I said before de-escalation is so much more important than controlling the battlespace as president trump likes to say, even the names of the operations they call this operation Diligent Valor there's operation legend operation, relentless pursuit all of those things suggest this idea of US versus them versus law enforcement being part of a community. When I was the US Attorney in Detroit, we had a consent judgment with the Detroit Police Department to resolve allegations of unconstitutional policing, including excessive force and a huge part of the resolution of that was embracing the concept of community policing working together with members of a community to. Achieve Public Safety and public trust with law enforcement I, ECHO secretary, Johnson's thoughts about he worries that this degrading the credibility of federal agents everywhere Detroit the Mayor of Detroit and the Detroit Police Chief have asked for additional federal agents to come to Detroit not to quell unrest. But to help supplement law enforcement in violent crime. But I worry that the community will now reject those resources because of what they've seen in Portland and so president trump may be bolstering his own election fortunes, but he is harming law enforcement in the long term and thereby harming public safety. Whoever makes. MAKES LEGAL POINT IF I may that I constantly preached when I was at Vhs and at the Department of Defence, which is that you may have an authority to do something. That exist but if you use that authority a highly highly controversial way, it can be taken away from you altogether and you don't have it anymore for the really really compelling circumstance. When you need it, which is why I keep saying backpacks make bad law, and so this is an authority that may or may not exist. It could be in the grey zone probably isn't a grey zone that may end up being taken away all together because of the way in which president is used it. Well. So Having the authority to your point doesn't mean you should use it but you know last week we talked to Yale historian, Tim Snyder and he's the author of on tyranny lessons. From the twentieth century. He has looked authoritative authoritarian governments across the twentieth century and he told us that a hallmark of those governments is finding the the edges of legality or the edges of authority and stretching them as far as as far as they can, and in his mind that is exactly what he said is going on in Portland and here's a little bit more from that conversation. When I think of Homeland Security I think of human beings and not objects. When I think of the president's responsibilities I, think of them as productive constitution rather than rather than things in the world. So that's Yale history. Professor Tim Snyder and I wanted just juxtapose that against what a little bit more what Attorney General Bill Bar said. Yesterday on. Capitol Hill because he once again. Said, the tactics by those federal officers are entirely justified in his mind because of the behavior of protesters whom he called rioters and he said from the passivity in his mind of local law enforcement. On. The defense it's we're not out looking for for trouble and if a state and the city would provide law enforcement services and other jurisdictions, still we wouldn't have no need to have additional. Marshals in the courthouse. So Barbara mcquade respond to that. It's. Particularly, the Attorney General saying we are on the defense on the defense from whom from protesters and who is the we here He it's a very loaded statement that Attorney General Barmaid I think that he fails to recognize the importance of cooperation with locals and that. Local communities consistent with the tenth amendment are the ones that are supposed to decide for themselves..

"Now, I know a lot of people have also said, well Magna technically anything within one hundred miles of a US border is jurisdiction for ice and. But but my point is, is that. There are many people who would say we'll secretary Johnson we have actually already seen this kind of behavior this kind of approach, this kind of violation of rights. On the border with these very ice officers and officers. So it should come as no surprise that when you bring them into an American city to protect federal property, they would behave in exactly the same way. It is not per se illegal to deploy. C., VP officers to support the Federal Protective Service. It is problematic to deploy. CBCP, BP an ice officers even those who have a specialized mission to a an American city to carry out a mission that they are not well versed in with you know dealing with large numbers of the civilian population and. A concern I have is when we witnessed these incidents of excessive force arresting people on less than probable cause, it may be due to the fact that these officers are not trained for adequately trained for this type of mission. Well. If Secretary, if I made like to actually bring into the conversation now, another voice Barbara mcquade joins us. She's a law professor at the University of Michigan as attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan from two, thousand, fifteen to two thousand seventeen was also assistant US Attorney for Detroit for twelve years and served as deputy chief of the National Security Unit Barbara mcquade walking back to on point. Thanks great to be with you and Secretary Johnson honored to be on with you. We heard the secretary earlier. You heard the secretary earlier about the his his concerns about the gray area just to underscore a point that he made. It is clear looking at the statutes that yes the federal protective. Service can. Can you officers from Customs Border Protection or ice or anywhere else? Can Be legally brought into the PS to protect. Federal Property. That's clear in the statutes but in that gray area, that legal gray area that the secretary is concerned about professor mcquaid like where do you see the area? Most of most worry? I am most concerned. I'm most concerned that I am seeing an administration using law enforcement for what I believe to be political purposes no doubt. Federal agents can and should be defending federal property. That's a courthouse judges in parties need to go into that building and conduct business vandalizing it burning it it is absolutely to be condemned and agents. Hanan should be protecting that what they are also doing however is engaging in. Crowd control. dealing with civil unrest something for which they are not trained, and although the law permits them to investigate. Any federal crime and to arrest somebody where they have probable cause if it occurs in their presence. It's allowing them to now roam out into the streets. So I in William Bar in a two thousand interview talked about this very strategy about how he used it to get federal agents on the ground in the Virgin Islands in the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo he said the. Is You find some federal property to defend you get people there because that's all legitimate. Now, once you've got your foot in the door, you've got the federal presence to do other things, and so that's where I think just because these agents can do what they're doing doesn't mean they should You have to exercise law enforcement judgments with prudence with respect for community norms with coordination for locals and with restraint as Secretary Johnson, pointed out where they're really crossing the line is in these arrests without probable cause arresting people just for questioning and taking them away in unmarked vans they can't do that and I I actually feel a lot of. Empathy for these agents bring put into the situation without adequate training without clear guidance and being asked to do things beyond the scope of their duties and so I see a president looking to in his words, dominate the streets, control the battlespace, go into cities with great force I. Think He is trying to highlight the violence around the courthouse showing only those images focusing on those images, and doing a lot of chest thumping to show how tough he is on crime. When in fact they're escalating tensions and not doing the thin. That's law enforcement is supposed to do, which is to bring calm to chaos and reduced tensions. See. Barbara and I could probably. Think of really really compelling circumstances where deploying. Federal Civilian Law enforcement to a city would be would be in the best interest of the nation and would be legally justified. So for example, John Lewis died last week. John. Lewis was a freedom rider across the south. Suppose, for example, you had similar situation where local law enforcement agency refuses to protect freedom riders at at a bus station or you know in a journey across the south but the federal government is determined it is their federal civil, right? To, ride in an in an integrated bus I could see a circumstance where we would deploy federal civilian law enforcement somewhere to protect freedom writers and to protect their federal civil rights. This is a very, very different situation, which is what I mean when I say that facts can make bad law and compelling fax ten to make to make good law. Well I mean to to your point secretary. We have seen that in US history right? I mean President Johnson deployed the Alabama National Guard right to protect civil. Civil. Rights activists but that was the National Guard here. Do you see. Is there a distinguishing factor between the National Guard and effectively what DHS officers are today? Typically. In a circumstance where a mayor or a governor needs help restoring the peace, they look to the National Guard under the control of a governor. It is an exceptional circumstance, but it has happened like the instance you decided where we federalize the National Guard didn't is under the command control of the president. The point I'm trying to make here and I. I'm not at all making this point to try to justify what is going on just the opposite the point I'm making here it is not inconceivable legally that you could use federal civilian law enforcement for the same purpose as we did National Guard during the civil rights era. but of course, it's to underscore it. You're saying that is not what you're seeing happening in Portland now collect this is something very. Yeah. So so both.

"We're supporting our law enforcement officers here. And making sure that they're going to continue to protect the Federal Court House here. That's what D H S does. That's our mission. We're not going to advocate our mission our responsibilities. However whatever the local leadership here is telling us. We're going to do our job We're going to do it professionally, but we're not going to have these violent anarchist who show up about the same time every night, for a series of hours of in having that federal destruction to property, and were not going to do what the Portland officials have asked, which is you know, descend, send these guys home. The pushback has been from local city officials is. The federal agents are making it worse. The federal agents are so confrontational and so. That, we're seeing more of these confrontations, not less and if the point is to see less of these confrontations than the federal agents should leave. Now. What you saw over this last weekend was that. More and more people were coming out on the street to protest. So. It'll be interesting to see what lesson the trump administration takes from that. If any, because some folks in the administration are arguing, that will should be our model in any city that has you know significant protests and significant graffiti and significant confrontations between police and protesters. And will be interesting to see if the trump administration really does attempt to bring sort of the Portland version of federal law enforcement to other cities. Because at least from what you're describing, it sounds like the federal law enforcement presence. There is actually making things worse and inciting more people to come out, and it feels like it's pretty counter to whatever you would think. The federal government's and goal is. Also, certainly, that's the argument being made by Portland City officials. But also you know one of the big arguments that's happened since all these protests over the George Floyd killing began is what is the best way to deal with mass on the street? Is it to. You know sort of the trump administration model of it down. You know, Hammer home the message as as hard as you need to add this that lawlessness or graffiti or to property destruction just simply will not be tolerated in any way, shape or form. Or is it to seek to reduce confrontation and conflict as much as possible so that there's just fewer people in the street and there's and there's less anger industry. That is the debate that's happening all around the country to different degrees. But especially in Portland.

Carry these out so for a number of years that lethal injection those direction lawsuits have been under consideration by federal judges in Washington DC and the most recent judge who had an opportunity to examine the record on those decided that there should be no executions moving forward. Unfortunately, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals reversed her decision, and so at this point, there are a lot of questions concerning the safety of the drug used the method that they're planning to use a single drug. Now. Instead of a cocktail had been used in previous executions, and there have been botched executions at the state level, and so there are still major concerns about. The safety of the drug and obviously when we talk about safety, people might be thinking well. What are you talking about? The person's going to be killed with it. So why does it need to be safe? But the eighth amendment. Prohibits cruelty in the carrying out of a sentence. Now some of US believe that killing somebody is a cruel and unusual punishment in and of itself, but even if you don't hold that belief I think many people would agree that even if you're going to execute somebody, you don't want them to be tortured. As they are meeting their death, and unfortunately some of these botched executions witnesses who have attended them have described very disturbing physical reactions that appear to suggest that the people who are being executed are in great pain, excruciating pain and unable to express themselves verbally while the executions being carried out, so that's why the Federal Court had been permitting hearings and testimony and evidence on the issues related to the the method of the execution.

"So while it's easy to turn the symbolism into something conspiratorial. It makes more sense that the dollars designed draws from important parts of American history. As for the Federal Reserve. Being upon in the new world order you have to admit that the World Bank seems to be a step in that direction. It empowers the Federal Reserve on the world stage by using the American dollar as its reserve currency perhaps. But there's very little evidence to prove that the Federal Reserve was ever affiliated with the illuminating to begin with or that the new world order even exists does money by power absolutely is the Federal Reserve upon in various plot to take over the world. I. Don't think so, which is why I give this theory a two out of ten. I entirely agree with that score There's a big difference between a totalitarian new world order that wants to maliciously control the planet in the World Bank that can help impoverished countries in a time of need. And as one of the wealthiest nations in the world, it makes sense that the US dollar would be the World Bank's note of choice that may give the Fed more power but I. don't think it's part of some grand design. After hearing a few, the conspiracy theories surrounding the Federal Reserve I think we can safely say that the most likely scenario is conspiracy theory number one. That, the Federal Reserve caused the Great Depression even the Fed itself admitted to its culpability. Whether the act was nefarious or intentional. Well that's still up for debate. I agree it feels like the most obvious of the three theories that said the Federal Reserve is still alive, and well has still pulls the strings of our economy with little supervision from the government. This means that theory number three could one day become a reality and anyone with money in the bank or stock, market or anyone who uses American dollars at all. Could become a pawn in the Federal Reserve's dangerous game..

A twenty four year, old man named Sir Hands Saran. And Killed Robert Kennedy. After Sir Hans Arrest Harvard. Medical School Professor Daniel P Brown examined him. Brown was an expert in forensic psychiatry and hypnosis. Mr Han did not act under his own volition and knowledge at the time of the assassination, and is not responsible for actions co worst, and or carried out by others. Round went on to claim that Sir hand was a real life. Manchurian candidate Brown was referring to the CIA as notorious mind. Control program known as M.. K. Ultra allegedly Sir Hanmi have been under the influence of advanced mind. Control techniques developed by the CIA. They coerced him into doing the governments, or perhaps the feds, dirty work and of the C. I.. A. And the Federal Reserve had worked together before to eliminate President Kennedy then it would make sense that they would collaborate to assassinate his brother to. Accept? There's hardly any evidence that the two organizations ever teamed up Oswald may have been involved with the CIA, which means that organization could have played a role in Kennedy's assassination. But there's nothing to suggest that. The Federal Reserve acted as a third party. It sounds more like the bad blood between Kennedy and the Fed spiraled into a hostile rumor, which is why I'm giving conspiracy theory.

"Cycle seems outlandish. That may be, but the economy had one of its most prosperous periods after World War One. Perhaps they weren't prepared for fluctuations of this magnitude. That were the case. They did nothing to help the broken system. The feds primary job is to be a lender of last resort. Instead they decrease the US money supply by one third, meanwhile, J. P. Morgan's associates gone up the failed banks to profit from later on which is why it's highly likely. The Fed caused the great. Depression, intentionally the men who founded the Fed reap too much profit on a scale of one to ten with ten, being the most believable and one meaning the theory isn't persuasive at all. I give this theory in eight. I'm not convinced. The Fed had some nefarious plan to sabotage the united. States economy! I think their lack of action was due to structural ineffectiveness, so I give this theory, a four out of ten whether or not the Federal Reserve intentionally caused the Great Depression. We can agree. They had their own best interests in mind. Their executives certainly took advantage of the opportunity to enrich themselves, and that might not be the most nefarious thing the Fed has ever done. Three decades after the Great Depression? They may have leveraged their power to rope, the CIA and other players into their plans..

"We're left with a lot of new deal proposals like the glass steagle act and some other new reforms that end up giving the Federal Reserve's responsibilities over to the treasury and what this process does is it allows the Fed to become more focused on certain duties. It'll it'll also Laos the Fed to become more centralized so in effect. It's making the Federal Reserve a more efficient system that we can effectively implement. Us economic policy. So what is the Federal Reserve today? So basically the Federal Reserve is what is known as a bank while simultaneously being the government. Spink IT sells notes and bonds which are basically where consumer gives money to the government and the government uses that money and after a certain period of time depending on the bond length or the note went then the federal government gives that money back to the person who purchased it with interest and each bond rate has an interest rate attached to it which allows the consumer to make money from it in addition to that the Federal Reserve is also responsible for distributing cash apply from the Treasury to the Banks. So that means that it's a whole nother organization within the federal government. That's separate from the Treasury. It's working in tandem with the Treasury to distribute money. But it's not the one producing money dot is the treasury's job. The Fed the Federal Reserve has twelve banks. It has banks in Boston. New York City Philadelphia Cleveland Richmond Chicago. Atlanta Saint Louis. Minneapolis Dallas San Francisco in Kansas City. So these twelve banks all have a president or CEO. Who's responsible for managing that bank and each of these banks are responsible for distributing money to their respective regions and lending major commercial banks money. In addition to those twelve banks the Federal Reserve also has a seven member committee known as the Board of Governors and this board of governors is the one who sets interest rates and they are the ones who help in making public policy them in tandem with the Federal Open Market Committee and another system. We'll talk about so the Board of Governors seven member committee appointed by the President and approved by the Senate and then you have on the seven member committee. A chairman and vice chairman were appointed to buy the precedent and they serve four year terms without any term limits. Sonali mentioned the Federal Open Market Committee. What exactly is that? The Federal Open Market Committee is the Board of Governors plus the president of the New York City Bank and three other of those eleven other Bank Federal Reserve Bank chairs that end up rotating in a yearly fashion. This Federal Open Market Committee meets eight times a year and they're the ones who set federal the Federal Reserve policy they set interest rate guidelines within the interbank market. So what does that mean? Basically banks trade money amongst themselves before they traded to consumers and whenever they traded amongst themselves they have an interest rate that they abide by. And because you have competing banks trading money. You're not going to have one. Banks set an interest rate. What you're going to have is the banks abiding. By the interest rate guidelines set by the Federal Reserve so those banks will trade money amongst themselves by the poll by the range set by the Federal Reserve. And then in turn those banks will for the most part set their own interest rates that they charge consumers or people who they give money to that they loan money to they'll charge them interest rates that are around the same area as the Federal Reserve interest rate guidelines. So that's one aspect of the Federal Reserve in addition to that it can. It's also responsible for introducing money into economy so the Federal Reserve helps to sell bonds. I E drawing money into the Federal Government but in economic downturns the Federal Reserve also buys bonds so therefore advise that bond back it gives money to the consumer whenever the consumer economy have less money than usual and that way the Federal Reserve is giving its money to the consumer and that we'd economy has more money within so if we think back to more recent event than the Great Depression immediately what comes to mind is the two thousand eight recession and we think about that. Did the Federal Reserve have a major impact on alleviating the two thousand eight recession? And so the answer to that. Is that during this time? The Federal Reserve cut interest rates and it did purchase the debts of some struggling corporations. But the problem the would that happen with the Federal Reserve during this time is that the Fed began cutting interest rates in two thousand seven. They thought the economy slowing down. So therefore they decided to cut those interest rates but in two thousand eight was when the problem really hit that was when the economy entered recession territory. And so by the time we were in mid two thousand eight inflation had already started increasing because of those interest rate cuts from two thousand seven that the Federal Reserve's hands were tied behind. Its back to cut interest rates further so the Federal Reserve couldn't do anything with the interest rate aspects beyond two thousand eight. But what they did do was they injected four trillion dollars to the US economy through the purchasing of bonds. Like I mentioned before so. The Federal Reserve played a notable impact in the two thousand and eight recession. All beat not as much as it probably would have liked to given that the interest rate cuts from two thousand seven did significantly hamper. It's ability to affect change in two thousand eight and now we that leads us back to where we are today where we have the krona virus or cove in nineteen and as we've all seen within the last month the massive economic downturn that has occurred and so we've been hearing within the news that the Federal Reserve is thinking of or rather not thinking but it's already taking action and so this action that the Federal Reserve has taken have has already been that they've cut interest rates to zero so the official Federal Reserve Interest Rate Range is zero percent zero point twenty five percent. That's already been done. It happened two weeks ago so Federal Reserve is already on top of that but the problem is and we don't want to run into a similar problem faced with interest rates in two dozen eight so the Federal Reserve is planning to to inject economy money into the economy. Even faster this time than it did in two thousand eight and what you have right now with the current viruses. No one is really willing to lend money what you're seeing. The stock market is that people are dramatically selling their positions in order to get cash back and no one wants to lend money to the corporations. No one's going. Outside of their homes people are told to stay indoors so with no one lending money then that means someone has to and so. The Federal Reserve has announced that it will purchase treasury in corporate bonds in order to lend money and this is pretty significant because a the federal reserve has never delved into corporate bonds before Sadat is pretty. That's a pretty significant action. Additionally I've read that the Federal Reserve is even announcing that it will purchase around seventy five to fifty billion dollars worth of bonds each day if we calculate that over the next two weeks to four weeks. Then we're going to massively out. Then we're going to have a lot more money than four trillion dollars which is how much the Federal Reserve put in in two thousand eight recession. So that's where we are today in terms of the Krona virus and the Federal Reserve's Halsey and it stands on alleviating the economic impact..

"As the Federal Reserve looks ahead to the new year officials are considering whether to slow the pace of short-term interest rate hikes, but one of the lessons learned over the course of slowly raising rates since December of twenty fifteen is that smaller moves have a bigger impact on the economy. Joining me now in our studio with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter, rich Louise and sign Rachel. Let's step back for a moment to previous periods of rate hikes, which have been higher. How do they compare with what we're seeing now? So what we're seeing now is the fed has been steadily raising rates for about for three years in when you put it in the context of history, the rate hikes aren't very much, you know, it's not as much as they've hiked in the past. But for variety of reasons, they do seem to be having a pretty big impact on markets on business lending all sorts of things in a way that had not happened in the past. So what are some of the reasons for that wire? Are smaller increases having more of an impact. Well, I don't know if there's a clear cut and dry answer to that. But I think the important thing to think about is the environment that we've come out of. So basically, you had a long long period of unprecedented near-zero interest rates and the economy got used to that. And a lot of things happened because interest rates were essentially near-zero financial products that you know, were cheaper mortgage like mortgages corporate debt loans. You know, other financial products were less appealing to people savings accounts things like that, and you had the fed which also had a huge balance sheet. So all those things created a very specific set of economic conditions. And now that their rates even though they haven't risen that much. They've risen enough to change the the environment. And as you just mentioned. And as you write in the piece for the Wall Street Journal, the Fed's efforts to shrink its portfolio of mortgage and treasury bonds also comes with a lot of unknowns as well, right, right? Yeah. It's it's a very unknown situation, and the they've just been kind of doing it in a careful way and are keeping an eye to see what happens in the question now is what has been happening over the last few months is a ton of market volatility. You know issues with certain types of lending, and you know, the profitability of it. And obviously also have Donald Trump tweeting about break hikes and claiming that they are hindering economic growth. So you kind of are at a moment. Now where people are thinking maybe that the fed could start to change their stance and Rachel as we head into the new year. How does all of this affect consumer borrowing? So a Bank CEO. I I know once put it to me this way. Right back three or SUV, and the fed was was first hiking, and he said, look the first twenty five basis points, the first that's a quarter of a percentage point. It doesn't really matter very much in terms of profits in terms of how consumers behave, but you reach a point where the cumulative effect of the hikes is so great that it changes the way consumers borrow and save money. And I think we are starting to reach that point because of bunch of different types of loans, for instance, mortgages is probably the biggest example, they've become significantly more expensive, and that's hitting home prices..
