The video is jarring the death toll rising in Beirut, Lebanon, a blast near the port, leaving at least 100 people dead. At last count scores more injured. Those in charge. Expect those numbers to Rice, said Li. Joining us live foreign affairs analyst for CBS News, Pam Fuck on the first Midwest Bank hotline on W. T. M. J. First of all Pamela horror, my numbers and that is that pretty much what we're standing at now, but 100 a. Yeah, 100 dead and 4000 wounded. And that's from basically the Lebanese Red Cross and some government officials, But they just don't know how many because so many buildings are just absolutely Flatten the entire port is flattened. So we're hearing from there's a U N. For peacekeeping force in Lebanon, one of their boats their vessels was in port in the Bay Report, which is really where the main part of the blast took place and that was damaged in some of their peacekeepers seriously wounded. They're also in and around town looking for forward those who are trapped under buildings, but right now they're they're saying 4000 wounded and some of those air very seriously, But the death toll is clearly going to run after watching the video, Pamela, it was just so unbelievable and I can on ly Imagine it's got to be block after block of just Devastation. They said. They that it could be felt 100 miles away. But that certainly glasses shattered at least a few miles and that included cars and building glass and all sorts of things, which which accounts for some of the wounded, But I'll tell you when it First occurred, people were saying is this and nuclear It's frozen. That blast was it was not. But it was so big and you could see this poem. First of white smoke, and it was in two rounds and then pink smoke, and no one could figure out what it Wass. Now the latest thinking, But there will be a forensics investigation is that there was a fire that started in a firework storage facility. That would have been bad enough. But it went down the port to the to a storage facility have with ammonium nitrate, and that was thousands of pounds of that that had been confiscated in 2013 20 Fortin from a ship. And that was 2700 tons. And so that's what exploded and Ah, But that said That, by the way, is the same fertilizer that used in explosives That was in the Oklahoma City bombing. If you remember in 1995 that is, it's it's very explosive. On DIT hadn't been under any kind of safeguards in the six years it was in port, so that is probably because the Lebanese economy has been disastrous shape hyperinflation, massive unemployment, really in a state of collapse. But there is there is thinking out there, and I should say that in the investigation there may be questions about if this was an attack, or was it actually this?

Why can’t Egypt and Ethiopia agree on the Nile dam?
"Now. A reservoir behind a controversial dam built along the River Nile in Ethiopia has started to fill with water. If you open officials say, this is a natural part of the construction process, but neighboring sedan says it's noticed water levels on the blue. Nile have started to drop fast well. The damp has been a source of. Of huge disagreement among Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt the latest round of talks on ensuring all three nations will get enough. Water fell apart on Tuesday well to tell us more I'm joined once again by the Janice Ruth Michelson she's covered this story extensively. Welcome back to monocle twenty four ruth at good to have you on the globalist, and there are satellite images of this reservoir. Tell us what they show. So the satellite images that came out this week show water gathering behind the dam as he said exactly I suppose as it would do if the dam. Were functioning and. Has Said well festival it said during all of the negotiations that have happened that it would fill the damn irregardless of the the outcome of the negotiations and it's also said that some of the the the exact words that the Ethiopian water minister used were the construction of the dam and the filling of the water. Go Hand in hand, so there's some kind of technical process I. Am not an engineer so I'm about to probably explain this badly. But there is a technical process that involves filling part of the water attesting to if the turbines, which is what Ethiopia wanted to begin now and so, what's happened this week is that it's unclear whether that process has actually begun and Ethiopia, simply doesn't doesn't want to say clearly whether this is just natural, build up due to the rain, and of course the satellite pictures will show us the water, but they won't show us. Why and the Sudanese have said that they have noticed that in. In effect is a direct consequence of the filling up of the dam. In Ethiopia, they are seeing less water. Were they'll? Absolutely, so one of the things that we're told about the dam is that. In in the woods, peons regulate the flow of the blue, Nile, which flows from. Hills where rainwater gathers in Ethiopia through Sudan. And up into Egypt and it's true that the Blue Nile does flood and so you know there is some There's some justification there for wanting to to regulate that flow, but it same time one of the things that's going to constrain this entire discussion in the functioning of the dam. Future is drought because that is caused by climate, change and climate change has been exacerbating and lengthening these periods of drought, so there are still floods, but there's longer and more frequent droughts, and so you know I, I actually visited Sudan and I went to Stand on. On the banks of the Blue Nile and talk to some farmers in January and even in the middle of winter, the water levels were already quite depleted. Obviously, this was something. That's extremely alarming. to people who who subsist on the water supply. There so this idea that this this damn is going to to regulate a problem is really only half of the understanding of the functioning of the Blue Nile. And how much are the other countries involved in particular Ethiopia, because it is damn. How much are they mindful of this secondary impact that people in Sedona being a feeling? What Ethiopia has said is that the dam will produce. Excess hydropower once it's once it started and they will sell Sudan a cheap electricity or that they will sit on electricite. Excuse me. So some important context about this is that about seventy percent of the population of Ethiopia live without electricity, so Ethiopia has said that this dam is is essential to the development of their country that they need the electricity that will come from it to function in terms of how this will affect Sudan. There are. Former Sudanese negotiators that I've spoken to who were one in particular. Who quit the Sudanese? Delegation because as soon as negotiations started in two thousand and ten Ethiopia said no matter what we're going to build the dam. And so this particular negotiator said well. What's the point in having a negotiation? Then what are we negotiating over and when he looked at the text? Describing how much electricity Sudan was supposed to get, he said well I. Just don't think this is ever going to happen. I don't think there will be this excess hydropower that you claim. Tell us a little bit more about other countries involved Egypt is closely affected by this. It's to its livelihood dependent on the Nile. And they have started to, I mean they have been integral to all the pushbacks and all the talk, so the in for the entire time. How have they reacted to this filling of the damage? So Egypt has come to view the damn. Stench Threat and there is some justification there because it will deplete the flow. Of the Nile water and the according to Egypt anaylyst. percent of its total water supply and so. They're just you know. This is a country that is struggling to react to the idea that it would have less water for for one hundred million people and so you know part of Egypt's reaction so far. We've seen I wouldn't say it was a confused reaction, but it was a reaction with questions, so the only statement we've seen was the spokesman for Egypt's ministry foreign affairs, saying that he requests urgent official clarification from the Ethiopians about whether they've actually gone to fill the dam and saying that they're following developments on this issue, but at the same time you know they've They've talked about how cutting off Egypt's water supply is a red line There's been. A lot of efforts by Egypt to try and find some external. That will You know help help their case. They took the issue to the UN Security Council at the end of June and the UN Security Council basically told the three countries that they needed to resolve this dispute between themselves. But this is an issue where in the past Egyptian. People in the government back in two thousand and ten have even discussed bombing the damn. There isn't necessarily a suggestion that they're thinking of doing that now, but this is the kind. It's a problem of that level that has been discussed even using violence, which you some idea of just how important this is to the Egyptians

Live on the KCBS Ring Central News Line by Margaret Brennan, CBS News, senior foreign affairs correspondent and moderator of Face The Nation, Margaret This is turning out to be a very controversial visit. This is considered sacred land by the Indians. Fireworks have not been performed or fired off at Mount Rushmore in more than a decade because of fears of wildfire. And contaminating the drinking water. Do we know why the president chose this particular location? Well, we know that the state is largely supportive of the president of South Dakota is and hey wanted to make the statement in a dramatic backdrop to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday I'll be on July 3rd. South Dakota has a relatively low level of covert infections, but they do have hot spots and any kind of mass gathering like this adds to the complication of what the president is choosing to dio because masks are optional there. So this is something that Dr Fauci has advised against attending for yet that additional reasons the worries you laid out Do we know what the how the attendance is going to be done O our tickets required for this event. How does one gain admission? I don't know about the tickets to be very honest with you. But in terms of the health restrictions, there won't be social distancing and mask will be getting out but not mandatory. So on that front, That's an important thing. We also know that just because it's in South Dakota doesn't mean the attendees will be from that state people to come in from surrounding areas, And that means any kind of mass gathering could be A mass reading event because people go back home. They don't just, you know, stay put in the town where this is being helped. So they're abroad. Health concerns about this. The president doesn't want to make the statement on the holiday that America is continuing to Forrest. He went out yesterday to the White House briefing room and basically took a victory lap on jobs numbers that worked better than expected five million jobs added back into the economy, but we know that that data comes with a big caddy it it's not up to date on DH.

Trump Got Written Briefing in February on Possible Russian Bounties, Officials Say
"Is going to the White House today. They will be briefed on reports that Russia offered to pay Taliban linked fighters in Afghanistan to kill U. S troops. The lawmakers want to know who in the White House knew what And when. The New York Times now reports that President Trump got a written briefing about this in late February. There are various reports we should note about when the president was told, but the White House said As thie information never reached him. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Great Solace is on the line. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning knew. Well, what will happen in this meeting today? This will be led by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. The White House says they requested this meeting with Democrats and Democrats in turn, so they have a lot of questions. The group. Joining Hoyer Thiss meeting includes the chairs and members of several congressional committees with jurisdiction over this matter, and they're looking for answers. For example, I talked to representative Ruben Gallego of Arizona. He's a combat veteran, and he's not buying the administration's argument that they didn't share this information sooner because they're still trying to prove it out. And the story continues to evolve. In a new statement, the National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien said intelligence officials continue to investigate and could prepare a response over time. Okay, so Democrats go into the White House today. Interestingly, the White House briefed some Republicans yesterday. What happened in that meeting. So several of these members who attended this meeting afterwards echo the White House's narrative that the Intel community is conflicted on what actually happened and that they didn't necessarily think that Trump needed to be briefed yet, But they also expressed concern If the reports turn out to be true, I spoke to representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois. He's also a combat better and let's take a listen. I think as we get more answers, then we'll know what the response needs to be. But I don't think this is built up to be any kind of internal scandal. But it is definitely a concern by way of. You know what roller is Russia playing in Afghanistan? NPR also spoke with representative Michael McCaul, another member who attended the meeting. He's a top Republican for the House Foreign Affairs Committee. And he said these allegations are very serious. And if true, he thinks the U. S needs to take swift and severe action against Russia. Of these meetings leave most of Congress still to be briefed on the matter, and congressional leaders such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others say these briefings fall woefully short of what's demanded here. NPR congressional reporter Cloudy gray solace. Thank you, Claudia. Thanks for having me.

I spoke to him yesterday about this. Let's take a listen watch. Concern that there's a unwillingness to confront the president with the evidence of Russia's Melania activity because he doesn't here. And this was a running theme. When it came to most Democrats, I spoke to yesterday. who were headed to the White House today. The White House briefed some congressional Republicans yesterday. Why was there meeting the Republican meeting a day earlier and what happened in that meeting? You know it's unclear why it was organized. This way in terms of just Republicans going in yesterday. However, they quickly followed that meeting. Saying Democrats are invited to. They're just coming tomorrow. Of the Republicans, who did go? They echoed the White House's narrative that the intelligence community is conflicted on what actually happened and they didn't think necessarily the trump should have been briefed, but they also expressed concerns. If the reports turn out to be true, I spoke to representative Adam. King's Inger of Illinois. He's a combat veteran. Let's take a listen. I think as we get more answers Then we'll know what the response needs to be, but I don't think built up to any kind of internal scandal, but it is definitely concerned by way of you know what role. Role is Russia Planning Afghantistan NPR also spoke with Michael McCall another house. Republican, who attended yesterday's meeting? He's the ranking member on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and he said these allegations are very serious, and if true, he thinks the US needs to take swift and severe action against Putin and his mercenaries, another Senate member Senator Ben Sasse, said he's been hearing from military families this weekend. They're livid and right to be livid. They're looking for people in the city to be looking out for their kids safety because quote, they're on the frontlines of freedom fighting for us. Are there people who have been left out of today's briefing that surprise you that you would expect to have been invited most definitely. This includes members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. This includes congressional leaders among them House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She's called for the full House to be briefed and she and Hoyer say these briefings at the White House fall short of what's demanded here. They want the director of National Intelligence, the CIA to personally brief all house. Members at the Capitol and the story continues to evolve for example last night. The DNA and C. Director said they'll to investigate, and they'll brief the president and congressional members at the appropriate
Trump denies briefing on bounties against US troops
"I'm Anthony Davis. Donald Trump on Sunday denied that he had been briefed on reported US intelligence that a Russian Military Intelligence Unit secretly offered bounties to taliban-linked militants for killing American troops in Afghanistan and he appeared to minimize the allegations against Moscow. American, intelligence officials concluded months ago that Russian. Officials offered rewards for successful attacks on American service members at a time when the US and Taliban were holding talks to end the long-running war last year. Trump in a Sunday morning tweet, said nobody briefed told me all vice president Mike Pence. Chief of staff, Mark Meadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan Russians everybody is denying it, and they have not been many attacks on us, he said. The White House had issued a statement on Saturday, denying that trump or pens had been briefed on such intelligence despite it being widely reported that the president rarely reads intelligence briefing documents. Trump's tweet came a day off to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Biden said that the report, if accurate was a truly shocking revelation about the commander in chief and his failure to protect US troops in Afghanistan and stand up to Russia. A Taliban spokesman said the militants strongly reject this allegation and did not indebted to the benefit of any intelligence organ. All Foreign Country Representative Michael McColl, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee said in a statement posted to twitter that he had requested additional information from the administration and the such an operation would deepen his concerns about Moscow's actions beyond Russian borders, if
Understanding the border dispute between India and China
"Together China in India account for more than one third of the entire population of the world, and if you believe the predictions of Keisha Mahbubani, remember him. He's been a skit on this program. He's the distinguished Singaporean intellectual. He says the future is Asian, and it's China's and India's to shame. But as my next guest points out. There, a deep historical tensions between these two budding global superpowers, which might make that impossible. China and India share land border in the Himalayas which has been in dispute since nineteen, sixty two, and it's been a pretty quiet style for decades, however, since May tensions have been rising nuclear powers facing off in a remote corner of the Himalayas, the disputed Kashmir region. This is the first the classroom this border in forty five years Indian government confirmed twenty of its soldiers were killed in the clash. China seems to now be making new claims to territory now. Will this be the event that pushes India away from Chana. Chana for good, and what does it mean for the rest of the World Tom V. Madan is a senior fellow in the foreign policy program at the Brookings Institution. In Washington. She's the author of a new book called Fateful Triangle. How China shut US India relations during the cold. War She's got an article in this month's foreign. Affairs magazine on how China is losing India Tovey. Welcome to between the lines. Thank you for having me Tom now. The border dispute between China and India has probably been the most tasteful. Conflict in the world. No one died and forty five years. What sit this conflict of? It was set off because of some early moves in early May that. had. Brought forward troops and equipped military equipment at different points on the China. India boundary the line of actual control. In the western sector particularly of their border, which is eastern Hlavac and at multiple points, what we saw was attempts to change the status quo whether it was to establish a permanent presence in built in areas, but both sides claim. Or attempts to stop a Indian patrols from moving in those areas which they have traditionally done. That's set the context. It's been going on since at least early May. What we actually saw what was happening to June, sixth meeting between senior military commanders was that they had agreed to a process of de-escalation and disengagement but something went very wrong in the course of this de-escalation. And this is where the incident took place. Now this particular incident has just been a larger in scale and an this whole stat of larger scale, but also regrets aggressiveness and the ones we've seen before, and there are reports that both countries are deploying some serious weapons to the bases close to the border. Is this just posturing, or is there a serious risk of Esscalation I? Think these kind of situation. There's always a risk of escalation. We've seen at least three. faceoffs three major face before this one between the Chinese and Indian military's in two, thousand, thirteen, two, thousand, fourteen in two thousand seventeen This one is could have larger in scale. We've seen as we did. On June fifteenth that even though they have traditionally had a whole series of agreements, standard operating procedures protocols in place between the two countries to avoid the kind of Esscalation we saw injured fifteenth. They clearly are not sufficient anymore, so let's put this in a broader historical context. China and India and went to war in nineteen, sixty two over the border. Now this of course was at the heart of the Cold War. Taibbi take us back to the geopolitical context of the time what was going on? By the time, the nineteen sixty sixty-two war broke out between China and India. You've seen a few years from about nineteen fifty seven about five years already of rising China Idiot tensions you've seen. The Indians relies that The Chinese did not consider. The boundary settled that they were building. A roads through territory India sought was India's. You saw scuffles skirmishes at between. The. Two sides patrols at various points on the boundary. You also saw the escape of the Lama. At a number of Tibetan. Refugees remain to stay in India in one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine, which the Chinese soil with deep suspicion and suspected that the US and you had worked together to engineer about escape. And, so you seem kind of rising tensions between China and India and at the same time you see you saw. The US India actually because in a national park because of their shared concerns about China actually starting to move closer towards each other for the for the the US This saw a in democratic India as both Jew potential, a political counterbalance, but also democratic contrast to soviet-backed Communist China accident, very interested in supporting it. N India welcomed that support, and so that was the. what was? Preceded that sixty to war, but which occurred when the Chinese decided. To move what they call the self defense a counterattack. And in nineteen, sixty two. Move across across the boundary took and defeated India quite badly, which laughed a number of different. It's a it's left a lot of historical baggage. The only major war the Union army has lost

Unfortunately, the pandemic had other plans, but we weren't just going to cancel our critical conference, so we took the global forum virtual all week. Thousands of people from around the world have been tuning in on AJC DOT ORG to watch high level addresses, intimate conversations and fierce debates over the future of Israel, America in Europe over the course of. Of this episode, we're going to bring you. Parts of those conversations Dr Anwar. Gosh is the United Arab Emirates Minister of State for Foreign Affairs this week. He joined the J. C. Virtual. Global Forum for conversation with his friend and our chief policy officer Jason Isaacson in doing so he became the highest level official from an Arab country without relations with Israel to publicly address an American Jewish audience. Let's listen in to some of that conversation now. I want to begin by thanking the distinguish minister, not only for taking the time to share his insights with AJC and our many thousands of guests on this virtual platform, but for the multiple times that he and his colleagues in the leadership of the UAE have met with AJC over the twenty plus years that we have been regularly traveling to his country in pursuit of regional peace and cooperation and understanding or meeting with government officials when they have visited the united. States Dr Guard Gosh. It's very good to see you again. Thank you, Jason. Thank you I'd like.

There has been an octave work that was done to numerous visits to all the countries of ragent, all the countries of the Gulf and I think this sort of visiting and understanding the food of Fiji sees.

How has your country contributed to the global fight against Akron bars pandemic, and what is your assessment of international cooperation in this fight generally closer to home, please talk about public health cooperation across the Middle East. How successful has it been? How can it be improved going forward? What specific role has the UAE played and I note by the way that the has twice in recent weeks, Asakusa and medical aid to the Palestinians by Israel feel free to discuss that as As well. I would actually agree with lock analysts who have said that our national responses have been more important than what I recall regional responses or googlers, every country, really as sort of look into its own and thermal situation, and this raises a lot of issues rarely about global cooperation, regional cooperation on issues such as the CAL now. If you look really adept policy, it's interesting, because in my opinion, we have come with a very I would say organized which nationally which is allowed us to actually and pry and help others and Binat relations originally and.

Elliptical from the humanity so here for example we have no relationship with is ran, but at the same time we have recognized that this isn't Adia that we need to cooperate together because it is one that edges human beings finally from the religious affiliations at. Let's look at the long term effects of the pandemic on. The long lockdown of the widespread in deep economic disruptions, the effect that they will have on regional stability and security. Not every country in the region has the kind of resources that the UAE. Does you throw in the recent plunge in oil prices on the crisis across the region really is amplified. Are you forecasting a regional power relationship restructuring a potential conflict between states, says spike and out-migration, perhaps from the Gulf states. Where do you see a softer landing after the pandemic? I would say that things will change and things will stay the scene. To suppose that fundamental issues that we have not been able to tackle for forty and fifty and sixty s will suddenly change overnight I think is expecting too much unfortunately, but at the same time I think that we need to try and work at the edges of. So clearly I think we need to avoid rhetoric that leads plus colletion. We need to avoid confrontation because everybody will be affected the dubs. Demographics guns. Economy and so on so

State Department watchdog was investigating arms sales; Pompeo denies retaliation
"The State Department's Inspector General. I thought to be fired for investigating. The Secretary of State for assigning personal tasks to a department staffer also was investigating the approval of arms sale to Saudi Arabia without congressional approval officials from different congressional committees told NBC News. They believe Inspector General. Steve Clinic was fired in part for investigating Saudi arms sales that Congress had previously rejected house foreign affairs. Committee member Eliot Engel of New York. Confirm that investigation by late Monday. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding a more complete explanation for Lennox firing according to the hill. Senator Chuck Grassley Republican of Iowa sent a letter to the president on Monday. Senator Grassley reminded president trump. The law requires detailed explanations for dismissing departmental watchdog to ensure that inspectors. General are not removed for political reasons. President Trump said the claims the secretary of state potentially misuse of government resources are overblown and seeing to consider them acceptable. Even if they are true look he's a high quality person. Mike is very high quality Zuri brilliant guy and now I have you telling me about dog walk in washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader. Then have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid you know stupid. That sounds to the world unbelievable head to wash dishes because his wife wasn't there. The president also confirmed Monday. That secretary of State pompeo requested the dismissal of idealistic but did not directly address the issue of retaliation. President isn't there. At least an appearance of a conflict of interest of secretary. Pompeo is asking you to fire inspector. General's I don't I don't think so. I think maybe he thinks he's being treated unfairly again. He wanted to. He asked me if that would be possible. I said I'll do that. Your I think it should have been done a long time ago. Frankly and this is a man that has had some controversy. This inspector general but So again I don't know anything. I haven't even read much about him. I see that it's a little bit of a story not much of a story. 'cause everybody agrees that. I have the absolute right to fire. The Inspector General's secretary pay later dismissed the idea that his requests for the firing was in retaliation for links investigations into arms deals. And those errands saying quote. Because I simply don't know I'm not briefed on it. I usually see these investigations and final draft form. Twenty four hours forty eight hours before the is prepared to release them. So it's simply not possible for this to be an act of retaliation end of story says Secretary Pompeo the State Department's under-secretary for management told the Post that concern over linen had grown because of a quote pattern of unauthorized disclosures. Leaks to the news media about investigations. That were an early draft form. He added officials had no evidence. Linac was personally responsible for the leak so Casey Hud. There's a lot to unpack there. Let's go back to the arm sale though this was a year ago in. May when the president and secretary pompeo declared an emergency bypassing congress to sell about eight billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia and the UAE and it drew condemnation by the way from Republicans not just from Democrats but there was bipartisan. Condemnation of this move and now it appears that inspector general was looking into that declaration of emergency. Yes that's what. Nbc News learned late yesterday when Chairman Angle confirmed that this investigation was going on that they were angry that essentially he had the president and Pompeo tried to circumvent Congress on this arm sales question this was something that there are a lot of. Republicans as you point out who are very invested in what was going on in that particular situation. And who opposed this move by the administration but let's not forget to put the firing of this inspector general in to kind of the broader context in pattern that we're seeing going on here. This is not the first time something like this has happened and the administration has already ignored the rules that they are supposed to follow when something like this happens in the case of Michael Atkinson in the intelligence community by not explaining to Congress within thirty days why they did it and so I think there's a question here as to whether the administration will do it in the case of the State Department. This has been something that has drawn as you pointed out. Bipartisan condemnation chuck. Grassley though senator from Iowa has been particularly focused on this but the reality is Congress's relatively toothless in this regard they can make these demands asking for more information but the laws are not necessarily written in a position. That's strong enough to let them make a real difference here. And what we're left with is kind of a government that is increasingly. Not being held accountable. Now how that lines up with the president's campaign promise to drain the swamp I will let our viewers decide but they seem to be at odds. Donald Trump talked about how incredibly stupid thing sounded at his press conference. And I agree Casey. I want you to listen to this clip. One more time and let's focus on the part where Donald Trump says that he doesn't want Mike Palm. Oh doing dishes if his wife isn't there take a look. Look he's a high quality person. Mike is a very high quality his brilliant guy and now I have you tell me about dog walking washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader than have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid stupid. That sounds to the world. Unbelievable quoting the president of the United States to you know Mr President how stupid that sounds to the world that in twenty twenty you say he needs State Department officials to washes dishes in case his wife. Isn't there
Pompeo says he didn’t know fired inspector general was investigating him
"Secretary of state Mike Pompeo says he wasn't aware of any ongoing investigations when he recommended that president trump fire the state department's top watchdog more from Bob Costantini president took up for secretary of state Mike Pompeo because if the inspector general he fired was looking into Pompeii a with his wife having staffers do personal chores that's okay with the president he's a very brilliant guy and now I have you telling me about dog walking washing dishes but I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leaders and have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are the you know stupid that sounds of the world the head of the house foreign affairs committee Eliot Engel who promises an investigation into the firing believes it was in part because Steve Wynn it was probing the president's emergency declaration allowing him to bypass Congress to sell weapons to Saudi

"Just working class woman and it was. It was it. It was a company midtown and financial front but she was the lowest person on it. She was like an executive assistant. And that's what I'm doing. She was secretary right and she made this mistake and she was brutally push for it and she said there was there was the intervention of somebody else was the owner to get fired and she said the person that I said. That too didn't actually care and when Dad Christmas party she was like she hugged her and she was like they were got on great. It was someone else who was at the social gathering hurt it and reported her and sort of styles you like way and they have to of course respond because if something bad happens later you don't want with that thing on the record that you didn't respond to right it's over policing but in in a work context and I just felt so sorry for this woman because I after talking to her for like better a part of an hour I just how good sense that she was not a bad person she was just thrown into this world which all the people who work there were young and she was like in her mid sixty s and she was making a quarter of the twenty eight year olds were making and she was like. You'RE GONNA get fired because you missed this woman and she's like I. It was dark mark. It was at this thing. And there's a work event didn't know and I really sorry. And she was saying sorry to me and like data Mickey Rooney Impersonation. She did that later. She's very good at it. Uh that kind of stuff I've seen and heard Too often in this in the sense of it is true that there are people of a certain vintage that you might want to say. Hey say relatives and stuff like come on man like a Christmas Christmas dinner or something. That's normal that's how people catch out trying to get them to not say faggot again. God you know it's it's yeah I mean look I told you this is. This is giving away. The pitcher is watching the simpsons with my daughter in Bart in this episode is like that's so gay and I was like holy cow. That's amazing that this happened on the simpsons and it wasn't the first season it was like ten seasons in and I was a kid that's good. That's not a pejorative. That's good. That's a slur but I'm that's where I stop in the sense of like the person who like I talked to someone from Massachusetts. What is the most continent where I am from Massachusetts says after Anthony Shaking his head he went to school combustion? What it's is? Don't be fucking retarded like really honestly. That's very common thing and I don't want to lose their jobs because they walked into the scenario where people are younger sort of more woke and the times have changed and they didn't recognize the times have changed their militias. So I guess the point being is that is that the problem might have with. All of this stuff is that we've stopped caring about motivation. We stopped caring about intense. It no longer matters. I mean that's why you see people from the Human Rights Campaign the Gay Rights Organization in New York and DC. Getting fired for saying a word in an anti-racism seminar the guy from net flicks. Because I believe so I got five for the same thing that once. We start taking all the intense analogy out in the idea of why these things were said. That's a scary moments that's right. I think you can't control. I mean at that point. You're you're admonishing people not to say the stuff and it's like it's a magic word at that point you've given it these supernatural powers that if you utter it even when you're condemning it we will condemn you and your life will be massive destruction. It's interesting because I totally agree with with especially with the first thing that you said. which is I think in a work context when you're working inner personally with people? I'm basically willing to whether it's pronouns or some other accommodation sure sure hundred percent treat people nicely in mind for the list that connor works like promoting dolphin shorts vannes true. A huge spliff haven't seen any ten years ago it up but I just wanted to say that you can't sit that Boston word anymore. I know that it because you've been in California and the beach but allow words against the office so when you go to the party just just tell me I'll give you a list but no you know I in my interactions with the athletic I I've never Had the Pronoun Conversation in any context I've had Kids of friends who are transitioning and parents. Talking to me the about I wonder how to handle this. I wonder how to be supportive. I wonder what's going to happen. He worries about Algebra received at school. how old are these kids Like twelve thirteen fourteen around that age. Don't do a Camille is oh and even enough and unfinished them. And you know it but it's never pronouns that that those people are worried about it's it's my kid wants to show up at a new school has always presented as a girl wants to show up presenting boy not telling me one And what's that GONNA be like. Are they going to be shocked by the rough housing of boys for example when someone jumps on them and gives them. These are the kinds of questions the parents had or are they going to be accepted they. It'd be bullied not someone is going to be deferential to their pronouns and so in my work life I've never had anything even you know visiting the office and being there for years and there are a lot of new people I don't know just because the organization US grown relatively quickly in recent years But I don't know of any interpersonal conflict like that and generally like the reason people are pretty nice and get along. I'm sorry more or less. Have you met reason Peter Catering Catherine seem pretty nice. Stop right there. Yes yes I know. Why is that.

I'd just want you to Camille Foster Orchestra. The it's going to be a mazes spoken word orange. His Song Baby. Yeah there's there's a suggestion that we do a Camille singing all all sorts of things but we do like the user generated content provided. You're not putting it together to make us look bad. Yeah 'cause we will compare this rhetorical Korea no deep fakes. We probably get into it. There's plenty of stuff going on. I think tomorrow we're recording this on a Tuesday evening. This is the night before the Democrats in the House are slated the vote on the impeachment Unless they've delayed it for some reason which I suspect they probably won't. We should probably vote a little bit of attention to that. We talked about it a lot but we haven't talked about it with Connor who's written about it recently and may have some interesting things to say about that but there's also plenty of stuff going on and plenty of other things that you have been writing thing about recently in thinking about that I think are of interest to us But perhaps we begin with this really outrageous Shooting that took place in Jersey City. Not In most murder scenes aren't outrageous in some way shape or form but it is not every day that a neighboring city to New York City a Finds itself in the midst of shootout between assailants and police officers where hundreds of rounds are fired in the city and it sounds like a war zone if you've actually listened to the audio and seen the video by standards out there police officers going in and in a line to try and in disentangle this situation And what's what's curious about. The situation is the degree to which the story really hasn't received the coverage that you might expect in other circumstances and it's almost certainly true that a lot of mass shootings probably end up getting more coverage than you might expect relative to the risks associated with this thing happening but I think it's noteworthy ready when certain shooting seemed to inspire a lot of conversation and other shootings seemed to not inspire a lot of conversation and in this particular case case to remind folks because again this is only received so much coverage was a man woman who had been in some sort of long-term relationship. A lot of the details are still Coming out the investigation is being completed. A both of them seem to be affiliated with black nationalists as the narrative what if is sort of laid out they killed an uber driver or some sort of Taxi driver early in the morning there was a police officer who was killed. Two apparently approached a a moving truck that they'd been living out of during the day And later on in the day they approached a convenience store that was owned and operated by It seems some Jewish people in the community and by the end of the day they killed. I believe it's four or five. People wounded one one of them being a police officer of wounded several other police officers and again we're responsible for inciting this incredible scene But there's a lot of of like peculiar stuff that seems like it's worth talking about and I think the context here being that. This isn't the first time that someone who has has had some sort of relationship with black nationalist stuff has been responsible for a mass shooting in the last like five or six years. We've seen several of them actually. And it's not as though there aren't some prominent black nationalist leaders who have pretty substantial followings. Some black nationalist leaders can get ten fifteen thousand people people into a stadium and black nationalist leaders also enjoy a lot of support. I should say at least They seem to get a lot of respect back from prominent black celebrities. They're interesting dynamics here. That might be worth talking about the specter of antisemitism some rather disturbing video. CEO of people who were at the scene of the shooting essentially watching what had happened in some cases but also just being there hours after everything sort sort of calm down and saying explicitly antisemitic things at the scene of the crime One Guy I remember it was just like this rather disturbing moment where he walks up to someone who's holding a camera presumably thinking that he's Jewish and saying something along the lines of are those people in there that got killed. Well that's good which which is just like I said I don't know what to do with that but at any rate it seems like this sort of thing that might spark national conversation. And instead I've seen in some coverage of it but I haven't seen the sort of deep introspective soul searching coverage associated with this and that's that's that's the difference right. I mean it's not to say that there hasn't been coverage of course has been coverage and the reason we know about it is because there's been coverage and of course the video that was out there that eat Good God I mean it was. It was like Raka. I mean this was not a gun battle that you see between cops emptying a magazine and then reloading their magazine. I Mrs just like it sounds like a war zone. It sounds pretty brutal and the thing about it is that these people were attacked. The second was it was a kosher store. Hate to be right about these things but you recall predicted this. I am very specific. I guarantee you're going to be black Hebrew Israelites. Because there were violent very violent group to be fair every time you see a violent crime and you send me a text that says hey a better to black it is always them. Those people opposite is I'm like no I'm kidding Israelites. Part of the whole Covington teenagers. Yes yes yes. I got a lot more coverage Ashley soul-searching to this that they did get some soul-searching Sixteen nineteen year old kid or something involved but the thing that I find very curious about this is that these are people targeted specifically because they're Jewish killed killed because they're Jewish targeted. You know we see people as criminals discussing video. It's been tweeted a number of times people afterwards words saying some pretty hideous things and you know. It's an edited video but when people say it's an edited video. It's like there's certain things that like. There's really no other context for that is is that like. You're not quoting anyone and also because you know video you have ran if you're out there for ten hours and you know people say it is anti-semitic things like you're not gonna play the whole taste so I've seen this. It's been edited so be careful. Be careful but it was pretty angry stuff blaming the victims and it was explicitly antisemitic in doing so. And you know thinking about this and the lack of a so-called national conversation but any appears to be any real conversation about the motives here is that this is also a group that is targeted more regularly than anybody else particularly. We have something approaching. Doing what would be a big problems as an epidemic but a big problem here New York City And particularly in my neighborhood. which is you know? A number of people being hit beaten up often guy with the brick the other day. And it's usually with with some anti Semitic slurs that go along with. It is a lot of this stuff out there so what was surprising to me was. There's no conversation at all about for instance as video. Is that if you have someone who's motivated by racial hatred and they go shooting something up in such a dramatic fashion with an arsenal as if they were you know. I think he would have got attention if they're killing Jews and they were dressed up in an SS uniform that would change. The calculation doesn't teach calculation for the people whose relatives start. They died right. But it's it's for some reason and I think we've probably guessed the reason but also by the way I just put it backtrack slightly the other. There's other shooting that happened right before. That's getting attention was a Saudi national that it's shut up and who also was anti Semitic and was posting not just to Israel things but anti Semitic stuff and Like extremist stuff online and. That happens like a week and a half before so we've actually had to anti Semitic mass shootings in. They're not it's not. We're not not sitting here going. Oh this is a crisis. I do believe that we have a for for for a long time. Overlooked the emergence of white nationalist analyst terrorism. And we've seen a disturbing amount of it recently and that should be paid attention to and so people who say well you know if D. H. S. is looking into these things. They're they're looking into these things because they just don't like conservative. Whatever that's nonsense and there we should be looking into this stuff and and more than we have in the past? There's a lot of it out there but right right now is that you know one would assume that to anti Semitic shootings in a row is a bit of a problem. But here's the problem. Here's the thing that I found amazing Camille and our communicating about this today. He said there's a video Out there saying these things after after the shit. I can't find it so I wouldn't found it right and in the process of finding I found one article one article about it which was on North Jersey or is he dot com and identifies the Bergen record or something or it's just North Jersey Dot Com. But I'm going to read you some selected. There's no quotes. This is about that video there. No quotes in the piece from the video. None these people saying these Jews are this. They're taking over there interlopers. It's always the same narrative read..

And I know that the paper covers a lot more than that, but that's a good one to start. Yeah, that's exactly right. People think of the fed is a domestic institution and it is an important ways. Our research work, I did with done with Peter Conte Brown. My colleague in the legal studies and business ethics department has. Focused on one of the ways in which the fed is really interested in its domestic pursuits as sometimes to the some inconsistency with the way it deals with its foreign counterparts, but the core of our research is this insight that the fed is increasingly engaged in relationships with other central banks and banking regulators, and that a lot of its foreign policy and domestic policy initiatives, are compounded, by the fact that it's interacting with these foreign central banks and foreign banking regulators. And we also found when we took a look at the history of the fed, which is a relatively young central Bank. It was founded in nineteen thirteen that this interest in foreign affairs and foreign policy was right there at the founding where one of the reasons to create an American central Bank was to sort of take on the Bank of England, which had its own sort of. Currency global currency of last resort. And it was something that American policy makers, very much were interested in maybe displacing. And one of the ways they tried to do that was to create a strong or somewhat strong American central Bank, which since then, as increasingly found itself, and meshed in these sort of foreign relationships. So we know that during the financial crisis that there were lots of problems, especially in, in North America and Europe. And that the fed coordinated closely with foreign banks and foreign financial officials to basically bail out the world economy, would what it more or less came down to that was an emergency. Maybe not something that was planned, or people would have hoped to see, but it happened, and now looking back, I guess, some people saying are we is our central Bank to intertwined with some of these foreign regulators or foreign banks and to, to the. Possible detriment of domestic affairs. That's right. When we think about who makes foreign policy in the United States. Some people put the leadership of that process at the executive branch with the president and congre, certainly, has a role to play in foreign affairs, declares war has to ratify treaties. It's supposed to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and one of the. Interesting aspects of our constitutional history as being the tug of war between these two parties congress and the executive branch for control over foreign affairs and what we saw in the financial crisis. Peter, and I document is that the fed an institution that's really neither accountable to congress nor the president. It's self-funded. It was created by congress, but it acts on its own. The president is not supposed to intervene. Really? Nothing. Quite like it at the federal level. There's there's a fourth branch. It's got a degree of independence from the political branches, which is remarkable never gets reviewed in court. The president's not supposed to mess with it. And the current president has been critical of it in a way which is resulted in some pushback from fed officials, and it shows up to testify to congress, but congress doesn't hold the purse-strings so during the financial crisis, what you had was this really independent institution making sure that there were enough da. Dollars out there, so that other banks would have access to dollars the currency of last resort during the financial crisis. So it did this through a pretty tricky maneuver. It extended swap lines that ultimately amounted to hundreds of billions of dollars to foreign central banks, which basically guaranteed them access to dollars and guarantee them access to dollars at a rate that was predictable and fixed. And then those central banks distributed those dollars to their, the banks that they regulated. And it was a way to get dollars in the hands of struggling financial institutions and many ways, it looked like good policy. The thing that is interesting about it. And we don't want to quibble too much after the fact is that it was good policy that was justified on something of a legal technicality. And that was never authorized by congress or explicitly supported by the president. Instead, the fed went out there and spent hundreds of billions of its own. Dollars on these walk lines and it did it on its own accord. So that's why we think increasingly looks like the fed has its own foreign policy priorities that may be different from those of congress and the president in your paper. I mean, the one figure hit that caught my eye and, you know, obviously, it's public record, but I didn't realize it was a high as the, the at one point, the fed had swapped currencies worth five hundred eighty three billion dollars. And that's not, not only is it huge. But you point out by way of comparison, that the entire foreign development assistance budget for USA. I d is only twenty two billion. So just put it in perspective. It's huge and the fed is a enormous player in international financial relations, and dwarfs all the other sort of financial support by. By other American regulators. And at some point, you know, something like a quarter of the Fed's balance sheet was devoted develop devoted to supporting these swap lines and that meant that the fed itself was holding all this foreign currency against which it had promised dollars. So everyone would pretty much agree that, that more or less save the world economy or at least Europe and North America from pretty much tanking. Correct. It's only helped one of the reasons and maybe we don't have to get too far into the weeds. But there's a one thing, the financial crisis revealed to us is the importance of the so-called euro dollar market, which are basically dollars held by anyone but financial institutions in particular offshore and the problem with the euro dollar market is that the, you know, the fed produces dollars in the supply of dollars, but it can't control what's happening, two dollars that aren't held in the United States or affect what it's doing. So. So what happened is that banks all of a sudden found that they were experiencing a run on their dollar reserves? They needed dollars to support their positions in the euro dollar market. And that's one of the things that the fed decided to give to them through these lines. So, of course, some critics might say, well, there was a cost of that, and, you know, what are we doing bailing out, these foreign banks in the retort to that is, obviously, well, if they go down, you know, that's going to release verily affect our own financial system. So but I think the point of your paper is more that, well, it worked out this time. Thank goodness. But maybe we need to have something more orderly setup so that we can make proper decisions in the future. Yes, in some ways, the, the swap line gambits is something like a gamble a big bed that the fed took, and it turned out that, that was the correct one. But one of the things you worry about is, whether these sorts of big one-sided, unhedged bets are going to turn out the right way. Every time the fed makes them. So that's one of the reasons why you think about oversight. It's also I think we're sort of sympathetic to Peter, and I are sympathetic to the idea that the fed had a role to play in stabilising the global financial system. But and it could be that most people agree with us on this. But it's certainly the case that, you know, congress never authorized this kind of big bail out of foreign banks with dollars who wanted access to dollars. And so there's some real accountability questions that are raised by you know the feds. Vision here. And one of the things that we think it shows is that in something's not in everything, but in some things, the feds are really a cosmopolitan entity it views the global financial system in Konomi as, as extremely interlinked, and so therefore instabilities in one part of the financial system can show up in one country or or series of countries and then affect financial institutions all over the world. And this sort of cosmopolitan view of how financing works affects the Fed's view of financial regulation, which thinks should be done on a global level and makes it willing to participate, and sort of global regulatory approach to financial stability that once again is, I think defensible, and in many cases, a good idea, but not everyone in this country would agree. That, that's the sort of thing that are central Bank ought to take on. So away to square the circle of fed, it's a good policy to have the fed be as independent as possible. But at the same time, that's not to say it can't overstep, those bounds or there aren't there, isn't some line beyond, which they need to be reviewed more closely, which is what you're referring to. So what would that look like I believe your paper talks about a twice yearly congressional review. And what would that look like? That's right. So one of the conclusions we have in this paper is that this is a difficult problem to solve because on the one hand one thing that we've cherished in this country, the idea that the central Bank is independent from political meddling, and so, at least until recently at least until recently, yeah, now, maybe, and we're, you know, we think that central Bank independence is as a worthy goal and everybody. At Warton thinks central Bank independence is important to a variety of different degrees, though. We would say that the decision about what to do with monetary policy and foreign relations. These decisions are in some ways political to some degree. They're gonna affect the way, we experience the government's, you know, control and oversight of all kinds of things that businesses want to do, so we want the fed to make decisions for technocratic smart reasons, we think that, that's most likely to keep inflation under control, which is one thing that essential Bank wants to do, but we also want the world and the United States and in particular congress to have a sense of what it is the fed thinks about it's international initiatives, and whether thinks are going to happen with those initiatives. So that's why Peter and I have a recommendation away to may be bring the Fed's central policy out into the light from. This sort of hidden shadows in which it's operated in the past. And our proposal is supposed to be modest and incremental and Jeeva ball. And we think that, that congress could responsibly ask the feds vice chair for supervision, who the current vice chair is the head of an international organization that involves a financial regulators from all over the world. He should come and testify twice a year to congress about what the fed plans to do..

We can talk a little bit about the weakness in the on. But I wanna talk a little bit more about this strength in the dollar and the challenge that that poses for emerging markets at twelve hundred on the Bloomberg dollar spot. It's a sixteen month high. Are we breaking out now? Well, thanks for having me on. So just to give you an idea. Obviously this year has been very difficult for emerging markets. Life by Turkey and Argentina the year started with those currencies and some others in emerging markets being seriously misaligned being seriously overvalued against the US dollar. That's over. In fact, if anything many emerging market currencies are screening, cheap at this point. And so for for the most part, we think the emerging market Ralph and therefore dollar strength against emerging markets done. So how about on the Yuan is this a reflection of dollar strength or is this a competitive devaluation as we creep towards seven. Think about if the United States impose tariffs on the euro. Example, right. Then it would be perfectly natural for the euro to depreciate in response to that negative shock to economy, and it would depreciate against the dollar. So that's a freely floating currency, and that would be what would happen. So in the case of the you want if we think about that being increasingly freely floating, it would be perfectly natural to think of the on. Appreciate an impact, but it should. In terms of overall risk. I've got a lot of negatives and not many positives lower maybe a positive, but the dollar higher costs a trade war raids downgrades and earnings oil prices. This is not a time to take on more risk is it. I think where disagree with market is is on one thing, and particular I think what started this SAP selloff is a misperception of the fed.
