"Every day were making decisions. Now hopefully take our business to the next level. What do we do with this particular team member. How do we find the best vendor. What colors and fonts should go on the website for next marketing campaign and hundreds of other decisions like these that we have to make every single week. The stakes are high. We can't afford to make a bad decision from the ramsey network. This is the entreleadership podcast where we business leaders grow themselves their teams and the prophets. I'm your host. Daniel tardy am i guess. Today is matt bonner match the chairman at fresh technologies and he's done a lot of cool stuff. He's helped star businesses run businesses launch. New business turn businesses around and especially as passionate about helping businesses scale up from the startup stage to be in a big deal. He knows a lot about decision making strategy and how to align our behaviors with our goals. But he didn't start out in this space in fact he actually started out as a successful analyst on wall street. He was making a lot of money at goldman sachs and so. I was super curious to ask them. Hey matt why did you leave. One of the biggest influences in this is a book. That's influenced me tremendously. Was the four hour workweek. The whole tim ferriss thing and so reading that and really thinking about what do i want to do with my life. And and where do i wanna spend my time and and thinking about. I mean in a place like that you can see the trajectory. Stay here fifteen years. I'm back. I if i stay here twenty years on that guy etc and so i could see what the future looks like and all they wanted to do something more entrepreneurial and i had this epiphany i was reading this article on bloomberg about one of the founders of google. I forget if it was larry page or or sergei would basically set this thing. And they've saying you know which everyone is. The ceo at the time and their salary was one hundred thousand dollars and as a first year analyst at goldman. My salary was more than that. And so i read the article and i kind of had. This chuckled to myself as like a twenty one year. Old or twenty two year old. And i'm like. I'm so awesome like i have a bigger seat salary than the ceo. Google and then literally there was a comma and the next half. The sentence was like andy's worth twenty seven billion dollars stock or whatever and so it was just like an anvil like crushing on the head. That was like oh. You don't get wealthy from a salary you get wealthy from having equity in something and that was really. That was a big difference for me that that made me realize that having a having a high salary doesn't really mean it helps but but ultimately ownership equity is really where you generate the most value. So did that. Prompt you to think i wanna start my own thing. I wanna build something. My dad's a very successful restaurant tour and he he had been doing. A bunch of stuff in nashville. And kind of the southeast. Broadly for you know. While i was in middle school high school all that stuff and he was always when i was up at at goldman he was always like a bug in my ear. Hey come back and you know. Help me out. Come join me join me. And so eventually I answered that call in and move back to national got involved with him in a in a company called fresh hospitality which is an investment business. Essentially that invests kind of across the food and restaurant world and scales various different restaurant brands. How big was the team when you joined basically me my dad My brother and one other gentleman whose name was nikola haggas is basically four of us at the time and There for yeah. Yeah and i mean there were there were other. I mean we were essentially almost like a small private equity or venture capital firm and so I mean the operating companies that we invested in obviously had a bigger sure employees based but really that was it at the beginning. And and since then we've built this whole kind of ecosystem and infrastructure of businesses. You've worked with a lot of businesses here locally many that. I've personally been a patron and i remember martin's barbecue when we went when they were a little like double wide trailer out. South nolansville autobody shop was yes barbecue around. And nobody knew who they were. Unless you live like right in that little community and now i mean if if you know martinsburg if you've been in nashville you know martin's barbecue i mean it's just it's the spot that you go if you're a nashville I'd love to hear that story. You know i mean you you you guys. Clearly were part of them you know becoming a big deal and kind of putting him on the map And i know you guys do that with countless other. You know restaurants But how do you. How do you find the martin's barbecue when they're just this little local story and nobody really knows who they are. I mean we're we're at a point. Now where and i think you see this in a lot of different businesses where you get inbound deal flow right and so i mean we. We met pat actually through a A point of sale reseller that we that we had a relationship with was selling terminals and that he's a hey. This guy's got a really cool thing. You should go check it out and so we went and we went and just had lunch. They're checked it out and got to know him and You know helped partner up from from day. One when they were back over that little auto body shop and You know our whole thesis for for how we invest in a company's specifically within the fresh Platform is we have this whole ecosystem that we've developed over the last decade or so of everything from technology to accounting to Real estate expertise marketing the whole the whole suite of services that sit around a business and we go in and we ate we provide them growth capital but we also provide them what we call our intellectual capital of all those different things to help them scale up and so you know we. We plugged that infrastructure in and really helped him. I identify a great site. And that was their store nolansville. That they moved to that was across the street. The kind of bigger flagship store and then started very strategically looking at. Hey what are some other great opportunities for this brand and and really one of the biggest strategic decisions we made up martin was we ultimately decided that we needed to have a presence downtown and to to truly be a competitive player in the in the nashville barbecue space and plant our flag so to speak. We we needed. We needed something downtown in. That's how we ended up ultimately finding the property at martin's we call it rutledge but the downtown martins barbecue and and that's we now we sort of we. We jokingly referred to it as the mothership because it's it's this behemoth compared to the other typical martin stores but it's been a really great opponent of that business.
Late Leipzig Victory Heats up Title Race
"We'll stop in the bundesliga. We thought no leipzig get thrown away. The opportunity to keep pushing by munich. There were two knelt down halftime against borussia moenchengladbach but a brilliant second half performance and a late goal from soil with see them beat god back by three goals to to to continue to put the pressure on bind at the top of the table. Janocko fuel itself is with us yet. Thank goodness we still have a title race. Just thank goodness to halftime. There was so many analyzes marker also sorting out gladbach. There will be calm now before he takes over. And then livesey made the bundesliga excited for two minutes with the irony at halftime. But thank god. Thank god for everybody. Neutral love love the bundesliga. There was fantastic. Second half of our show and they slowly came back. Glad back more tired had some chances on contracts but policy and kuku and solo there so many attackers. It's lives. You haven't score enough goals after chicken and van left them after last season but they produce tonight and we haven't excitement we have. We have a tight race in germany. Dan could you imagine. Say those words. I know i don't know very much unlikely. After the to say bad in the first half. Yeah yeah their web bad but but say having said that. I mean they had a ball the lot. They didn't create a lot gluck. Unbelievable efficient mcconnell had one of those half where look like the most clumps defender being around after being the most attractive defender around and toronto and half on peres demanded to nil and everything look like well typical vion after their gala show earlier on the day and now we have this situation fribourg against lives on friday if they win that top of the league at least for twenty four hours then the big game between via munich endorsements says you mentioned yance still two point separates vine and live sick. Let's switch attention to that wind show for buying a day. They were certainly facts that the way this game ended you. They could just keep scoring. Every few minutes on the will keep on scoring. I mean live on dose keno. Getting closer to that magic gaffe miller torty goals in a season scoring two goals today but there was a whole wasn't ed when they played their home three three losing in frankfurt against eintracht. And then they're back to the norm. Winning high in champions league winning five one against cologne. it's not like five or six goals better than them on the page but they just so efficient gerrad sky. Think a ended up with three assists. Today nabu just scoring for fun. Uneven ship matang scoring so i mean by will be all the way of the understatement of the nights at just into content main if levin dusky reaches at forty gaumont. It's unbelievable because then you compare yourself with the best goal Of all time and yes you could say the by a munich was fantastic. But you can say the same about this team. I mean we are talking about whole on emba- pay silva or were all these goalscoring sensations around europe the moment but levin dose gays to complete striker but the the goal getter part of his game is unbelievable to he's hungry and passionate for goals is unbelievable and you saw the way to the goals. Today you had a you finally got. Thomas miller on to fourteen seconds to make an assist for him. I just turned around. He knows all the time where where he is on the full patriots and if he beats the record i still doubted but he's getting closer meanwhile bruce feldman turning on in the second half in proved to be a comfortable win in the end. I'll tell you what twenty twenty one jaden sanitary. It's very different than twenty. Two thousand nine hundred and sounds like christmas press the reset. Button is incredible. Twenty twenty cents show. At least the half of it was very influenced with all that happened around us some monsters united being on the phone all the time. Hundred and twenty million hundred million europe but now he's on fire and the way he's playing at the moment he's playing with all his strength all the passionate he's running all the time he's body. Language is turn like hundred and eighty degrees unbelievable. I also today. I a writer who scored that goal. And i think that that sums up the way dole put his playing at the moment ailing all on. I'm not sorry. Putting in northern region after solo scored for for leipzig later tonight. But but then allen all on one against one against goalkeeper typically get up. We'll try himself. Just give it the ball away. And i think that sums up that door at the moment. They won three games in a row. Intense being under pressure as being a lame duck after the appointment of mark but they are back on track another only three points behind eintracht frankfurt for that very very valuable champions league place for they make it. Yeah yes. I think they will. Because i don't think well eleven games eintracht frankfurt had and with no losses i winston role. Then losing it to to bremen and as long as they can keep on winning these kind of games which has been difficult for them. They're lower teams like being felt today. They will keep on doing it but mind you next game. It's frankfurt against got. That could be a frankford. Win on there and Munich and then we can have that six points again. Because volts berg are winning games just like behind everybody under the radar of everybody of body so they could end up taking place in the bundesliga
Arkansas Head Coach, Eric Musselman, Discusses His Team's Success This Year
"Know there's a game coming up tomorrow but if we could just get some final thoughts on north we're violating the twenty four hour rule or not. But how does it feel to. I mean your fans are buzzing right. Now they've been excited all year but that really brought it home the other night. I mean the thing that that we're probably the most proud of paul is just the fact you know we got thumped tuscaloosa and we got beat before that at lsu When we were in bad rooch pretty pretty bad too and and We were able to bounce back between those two games. We had a really physical practice with weighted vests. And and you know. I'm not sure we had enough legs To play the fast place style of play that that obama plays and coach you know gets his guys really get out and run and and You know looking back. We knew that that practice would you know would would maybe set us back slightly but we're trying to think long term. We had a great environment. I mean we. You know i understand. It's a pandemic but we had a really good student section. Our crowd was good. There's there's there's been a lot of excitement over the last few weeks with the way that the team is played and and it was a big game. Th you know anytime you get a top ten cheap You know and you can you can you number one. You don't get a lot of opportunities to play top ten teams then when you do and you're able to to get a win. It is a big deal for the fans at former players boosters and and for the student athletes to reward them for for a lot of hard work but we have incredible respect coach oats and his team and we know that you know they're one of the top teams in the entire country so it was a big win. But you're right you gotta turn the page. And that's part of your team is having maturity when you do win a big game two to turn the page and get ready for your next game. I mean you're now final two days of february and and certainly you're going to be going through this now. You're going to be going through this in the sec tournament and ultimately in the nc double a. tournament for for a program that has not won a lot of big games lately. How drill that into their their minds. That this was fantastic. But it doesn't mean anything tomorrow. I mean i think you know all you can do. Really paul's just continue to talk. educate You know. I told him today that you know. I'm a lot older than them. I'm getting getting towards being an old man. And and sometimes you gotta listen to your elders a little bit on on some of these things that you talk about that you know the game you know tomorrow when we play l. s. u. the prior game against lsu doesn't matter and our pr- prior win against alabama doesn't matter there's forty minutes you've got to go out you got to be focused and You know it's. I think that that just kind of how it is and and You know the good thing is having gone through it nevada. You know none of those guys that we had there had really been through it either But i think the big thing is just understanding that each day. You've got to continue to get better. I mean even you know with with with three games to go now. We're talking about how we can get better. We're talking about improving our practice habits. We we do a to onto pick and roll defensive drill today that i'm sure they weren't really excited about doing a two onto pick and roll drill that might be. You would consider a training camp drill but we want to get better and anybody that aspires to play beyond college. Basketball should should want to become a better pick and roll defensive player so hopefully you know you can get your guys excited to understand that you know you're not just doing it for the lead these last three games and then tournament situations you're doing it for the longevity of your career as

How to Care for a String of Pearls Plant
"Says a girl. I work with was throwing out a dying string of pearls plant rescued. It took it home. I cut the dead parts out and started watering it. And it started to come back to life but it's an eight inch pot which now seems way too big for the plant. Should i put it in a smaller pot or just wait for it to fill in. Well no if. I were talking directly with dana. I'd ask her how long or is this. The rim remnants of the original plant. That now looks skimpy in the pop. they can stand being a little bit of rebound now. I don't mean mashed up where those soil in the but but at the same time as a succulent there Capable of doing what she has dealt with Bless her tell her to blessed to levy that threw it out. Because that's a plant that can go on and on and on and what she did was exactly right to cut the debt out And encourage new growth even to the point depending on. How far up do you can bring visit is a penniless plant. You can cut it back up a little bit and cause it to start over again and this is almost an ideal time to do it. Our days are getting longer in terms of outside light coming in. We can always leave lights on more as a succulent. The plant does need water. No question about it and if little pearls don't don't expand. Then you know you're not giving it enough water if they expand nicely than. Don't push me on that. I would guess that in this age pot. She would probably not have to water more than every other week. Now as in watering any potted plant water thoroughly let it run through drain out into a pot of base stand. Whatever it may be men just let it start to dry again because as a succulent you can flat out. Kill them with too much kindness in terms of water Light wise. It's a very interesting plant. It can handle indoors wearing nicely. You only need to four hours of direct sun or let you say nearly direct sun in a given day thrives in house temperature Once the the we've gotten a little past this point maybe maybe a month from now she can and maybe should This plant now. I i always grab what i call the african violet low analysis. I they tell you to use x. Amount per i use half of x. And i will start fertilizing that plant it somewhere in the period of Oh late march early april. Get it going because it takes at least two weeks for fertilizer to catch up with the needs of the plant so even even could be done now if she has a place where she can keep it. Pretty good light Then the next step because it is as Any other plant would be being indoors as being a hanging planet. It can be dutiful all the way around three sixty degrees in unless she does not turn it. Maybe a quarter a third of a turn a week to the well to the window. Nearest in terms of full sun Fertilize every couple of weeks lightly. Clear on into early fall and then clinton and just enjoy the rest of the winter. So tell her. she's a winner. What the plants value is but she came out a winner And and i kinda sorry for the lead gave it up but everybody gets rid of a diet plant from time to time. And i'm glad that dana grabbed this
The More You Grow, The More You Need To Say No
"I want to start by just stating a fact. It's so much easier to say yes to something than to say. No saying yes has no friction right if somebody says. Hey i would love to have you on my podcast. You saying this requires zero effort like sure. Yeah no problem. A big part of their reasons. Because you're not actually saying yes to doing something immediately right now. You're saying yes to something that's going to happen in the future and the future is foggy for most of us. We don't really fully internalize that commitment or like that's my future selves problem right. That's future almost problem. My problem right now on the other hand saying no to anything is hard. Even if it's just a friend asking you hey. Do you want to grab some lunch. And you just can't make it because you have obligations having to say no is just hark. You don't disappoint people that's natural. Let's just you being a good person but having said that saying no doesn't make you a bad person say no actually protects you so that you can continue to do the good things in your life you can be value to only your customers and your employees but also to your friends and family and saying no is not really something were taught even had to deliver that no so in today's lesson i wanna explore this concept and walk you through this journey when to start saying no had to do it in which opportunities you should say yes to. Here's the reality as you start growing your business as you become a more salish entrepreneur. The more valuable. Your time is when you're first getting started. I'm just speaking about myself. When i first got started and i was just trying to kick up dust as trying to make a name for myself. I was trying to build a business that matters has customers that has revenue the sustain myself. I was willing to do pretty much anything to bring in customers. Those legal and ethical of course and therefore my time really didn't have much value. Because all i had is time i didn't have money ended customs but a had time but that equation changes as you get more customers as you get more revenue and now your biggest asset is time you only have a limited amount of it so anytime you say yes to something you are going to say no to something else because that is going to take you some time on your calendar. Right and once that time is taken. You can't do anything else. And there's only a certain number of hours and they right. There's only twenty four hours a day. You can't do more than that you know and the thing about this is that it's gradual in the beginning you have nothing but time than your time becomes a little bit more limited and then as you grows entrepreneur time is incredibly limited and a lot has to do with the fact that you just have more on your plate. You have more opportunities presented to you because of the successes you've having going look at this issue a look at the extremes if you wanna have lunch with a local entrepreneur that you met in your co working space that might be in the star of their entrepreneurial journey. Maybe they've been doing this for years but getting a lunch with that entrepreneur that you've met your coworkers is not impossibly can schedule. You can make it happen. I it's like trying to have lunch with mark. Cuban right you know mark from shark tank and you know the owner of the dallas. Mavericks billionaire entrepreneur. This guy's got incredible amounts of opportunity. His schedule is jam-packed his time is incredibly limited. So it's not impossible for them but the chances of you having lunch are a whole lot thinner than you having with somebody. Who's not as busy right. Not as senior in their entrepreneurial journey and that's because he has a lot on his plate paternity any says no a lot. He had to train himself to do that because when he says no allows them to say yes to other things things that he really really wants to do or things that will have a greater impact on his life and his business now. A lot of people have a hard time saying no because they don't wanna feel bad they don't wanna feel like they're being a jerk or helping other people how or you know just respecting the journey and understanding how i was once there. I want to help somebody out. I'm one of those people but you can always turn an opportunity in your favor to make sure it works for you so i sometimes get emails essay. Hail mar would love to jump on a call and discuss this with you. I have a question. I have something i want to work out one. Maybe an opportunity can collaborate. And i totally respect that. And that's really kind of than three job to me but a call is very time consuming for me anything. That's synchronous where. I have to be at the same time. Same place is very very hard to do. Because i have a schedule of have Obligations to my team to my customers. I have to do so i always counter and say thank you so much. I'd love to do this over email.

I started with my interviews. I just had one today where somebody contacted me and of course. Let me introduce you to you. Know bruce smith whatever just making up the name Bruce's cured cancer.

Because their last one or two that i listened to were were not really like i don't know i just didn't get anything out of some would be looking for the ones where it's like. I can look at that title. And i can look at that person go. That's the one. I want to listen to because i've got limited you know i've got three hundred. I can choose from.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner gives update on power outages and weather impact
"With me now is houston mayor sylvester turner previously served nearly thirty years as a texas state representative. He is in a command center right now. Monitoring situation in his city mayor. Thank you for taking a little time with us. And i don't want to start first with things aren't houston. Are they getting better. Chris in the last twenty four hours. Things have improved yesterday. At this time we had about one point. Three million customers without power Today as i talked to you that number is under thirty thousand in houston region yesterday The the water pressure was extremely low In fact hospitals were having a hard time getting but they needed Just to run a bear chillers to stay warm and other necessities today. The water pressure in the city of houston has increased And hospitals in much better shape at the same time people many of the people able to flush their kamoze improvement with still not wear. We want it to be but yesterday the pressure was below what we call twenty. Ps today as we speak that what a precious right around thirty so being things improving but again we still have some tremendous needs at. They're just zero in on the water aspect of this has been one of the more harrowing parts of it and a kind of a kind of cascade effect. We're going out water treatment facilities. Just explain to me what that means that it does. It mean pressure. Now you can you can. People can run water in their homes. That firefighters have water that hospitals have it is. That is that where things are correct. Hospitals now have watered. That can run the chillers. Keep the patients that doctors and medical staff Warm in in in in cool weather so to speak People able to take showers. Peabody plus two komo but because the water pressure dropped below the regulatory requirement twenty. Psi you automatically have to give ball water. Notices so you have over seven hundred jurisdictions around the state of texas a chieftain san antonio austin example in many others where there are bald notice requirements and that will continue to be the case probably through the weekend at the earliest that ball. What notice could probably be lifted on sunday. But i think for houston probably be monday. Which means if people don't have power because just also ball your water about two minutes but what happens if you don't have power then people are going to rely a great deal on bought a water and that's why starting today We started distributing water to those persons for example. Who don't have the means to go into a grocery store and purchase tomorrow for example will be masked water distribution site in the city of houston where we will probably give out tomorrow anywhere between seven to nine hundred thousand bottles of water primarily for people for families who already on the modulus. Chris and they just can't afford to go in and purchase two and three and four cases of water. And we'll do that Tomorrow saturday sunday until this ball. Water notice has been listed. That's really that's very helpful in understanding where things are. Let me let me also ask what your interfaces have been. With spill state and federal government i know females on the on on the ground. Have you been talking with aircraft that run the the grid with folks from fina. The federal government and with governor abbot. What are those interactions been like. Well i've talked several times with the ceo. Behead of eric hot And n n what he will say to you. Is that the system that we have in the state of texas. Our texas korea is designed for the summer heat. It is not necessarily designed for winter storms and then as relates to this. What happened in this. In the last four or five days that was simply not enough adequate generation supply available to meet the demand and the supply that they had reserved so to speak when with shop when some of the facilities came all flying of been made things even worse and let me quickly speak to those who are trying to say. oh the wind turbine frozen. You shouldn't be looking at renewables as a false false aligned. Being put four because the plants that came off line while natural gas plants coal fired. Plant Nuclear plants came offline. You wind turbine strobes. So it was a combination but when it comes to win and sola that's still only counts for a fraction of the energy that's produced in the state of texas. The rally at reality is that the state was. Ill prepared The other thing that i would add when i was in the legislature but twenty three of my twenty seven years i said on the on the committee that oversees our electric utility industry back in twenty eleven fouled a bill saying to the public utility commission that we need to exert greater oversight over urquhot to prevent blackouts of every kind that we have are experiencing in texas for four for these last four days batmobile. Chris was never given a hearing. And so for anybody. Who's just trying to place the blame on irc That's not enough as part of the story but it's not the total story. Archive is an agency of the state of texas is the leadership of that overseas or cat and what happened in this week with the failure. Not just urquhot but of the statewide leadership state representative state senators. Who didn't do enough to make the necessary. Structural changes prevent what took place this week but mccurry and as a result of that hundreds of thousands of texans paid a horrible price and they are number of stony that we live in the city of my city that anada that not allowed to date to go into next week. Some of them died from carbon monoxide. Trying to keep themselves
China steps up threats to reclaim Taiwan
"China's rise as a great power it showing more and more attention towards reclaiming territory that long regarded as its own witness. Beijing's conduct in the south china sea. The east china sea hong kong the himalayan border with india. And of course. Taiwan fifteen chinese planes were detected flying into taiwan southwest air defense identification zone or on sunday taiwan's ministry of national defense said sunday's incursion involved twelve fighter jets to anti-submarine aircraft and reconnaissance plane. This comes less than twenty four hours. After the people's liberation army air force flew thirteen combat aircraft including chinese bomber planes capable of carrying nuclear weapons into the same region that was from the south korean english language. Every rung account of china's recent intimidation of the lovely liberal democracy of nearly twenty four million people. now one of my guest today has warned the australian defence department. Beijing is highly likely to attempt to take over taiwan using all means short of war as early as twenty. Twenty four ponder that a chinese takeover of taiwan by twenty twenty four. Linda jacobson is the specialist who delivered this assessment to the morrison government. A few months ago linder is founding director and deputy chair of china matters and she joins us from finland. Hello linda welcome back to between the lines. Thank you for having me again. Tom and joining us in sydney. Is natasha qassam. A research fellow at the low institute by the natasha. Thanks for having me tom now. Linda recently published. China matter explores policy brief. Summarize succinctly or faces tom. We've been talking for a long time. That taiwan is possibly explosive issue in our region. I'm saying it again now. Because the president xi jinping has made it clear that contrary to his predecessors he does not think we can leave the unresolved political status of taiwan to future generations. He wants to see movement towards what the chinese say reunification of the mainland and taiwan during his lifetime. That's the first point. The second one is that as of late. Probably because of some of the recent events which you alluded to among others the pfc's actions in hong kong. There's been a lot of talk of war of outright military conflict between taiwan and the pfc. I think these media reports have the problem into the wrong perspective. I think it is unlikely that we will see outright war over taiwan's future but we are very likely to see beijing making a move which is a protractive extensive intensive campaign of pressure using all means short of war to bring the taiwanese political leadership to its knees and agree to negotiate nothing more without preconditions taiwanese leadership has already said they will negotiate. But the pfc wants to negotiate on the basis that there is only one china in other words in negotiations have to end in some sort of agreement about unification so that's in a nutshell is what the policy brief argues. We should appear for this kind of extensive intensive pressure campaign using all means short of a case. i'm not. She heard linda's assessment. There of the chinese threat to taiwan china's military invasion of taiwan's unlikely. Highly unlikely so expect by gene to launch a step by step coercion of taiwan using all main short of war to force taiwan's latest into negotiations to etc unification natasha. What's your response. I'm inclined to agree with linda that this kind of phased coercion with many policy measures that china can easily scale up is the most likely scenario are and we can already see that happening. We can already see china attempting to launch multiple cyber attacks in taiwan to economically co west taiwan to try to put pressure intensive media coverage and even to infiltrate some of those local level groups to try to tan politics in a different way in taiwan. All these measures today have been relatively unsuccessful. China made it very clear that they wa against the current president citing win and that they were going to punish the taiwanese for her. These kinds of measures only encouraged the taiwanese people the vast majority of which do not want to be a part of china to turn out in support and fight to when last year. And at the same time we've also seen the country really come together during this covid nineteen pandemic and we've seen a really incredible of trust in institutions and in that democratic system of government. In a way that perhaps we haven't seen in other countries so i'm inclined to agree with these being the right measures but on the other hand i would say that the military option very much remains on the table not perhaps in the short term but from china's the incredible buildup of the people's liberation army that we've seen over the past decade has very much been directed at a potential taiwan
Paramount Plus wants to take on Disney Plus, HBO Max and Peacock
"Paramount plus made a big splash with a series of super bowl commercials. It probably led to folks wondering what the heck is. This thing you know clearly is bringing together. But cbs viacom shows and movies. But we've actually already had a version of applause for a couple of years now. It's cbs all access. So what's the deal here. So roger that the thing is. Cbs merged with viacom recently. And so what they're going to do is they're rebranding service to kind of all those other viacom properties. Mtv comedy central and also paramount studios. So that's going in there as well so all these kinds of things are going to get wrapped up along with the cbs shows. A lotta cbs. Shows that you know and love from. Cbs alexis they actually called it. A rebranding to start out. So changing the name Probably a few logos and things like that. We saw the super bowl commercial featured a mountain that all of these well-known cbs characters on spongebob to picard to football players were climbing That's there it's mostly a rebrand. I think at launch. It's going to be mostly the same. Content is cbs access with a couple of new things. There isn't event coming up a week from today. actually a basically it is viacom. Cvs is but they're also taking that as an opportunity to run through some of the content in some additional details on paramount. Plus now we were. We were all sitting in tuning into the disney presentation back in november. Which i think it was four hours long and basically it was just a marathon session of new content. Are you expecting something similar from this event. Or what what what. what are you expecting. What are you hoping for at least get out of this from this event. So i'm hoping for some new exciting content. You know i. My hope is a little bit damp and by that super bowl commercial. You'd think if they were gonna launch a big splashy new show you know talk about some new stars they have. They would be enact commercial for the super bowl if anywhere but we'll see i. They've already said that. The why the launch is gotta be. Spongebob movie sponge on the run. But that's not an original. They've talked about few original properties They're saying coming soon. One called the lioness which is a better creator of yellowstone the hit series on paramount network which is also going to be on paramount plus yellowstone. That is so there's a few things but maybe they'll surprise us to be great to see you know a couple new. At least one new star trek series for example to kind of you know cater to fans who are looking for something new. And that franchise.

"They had joined in this protest and that is a fascinating feature of the division of our country. There were sad to say police officers. Who believe they were being hit by other police officers. Police are fighting throughout the afternoon. And into the evening to get back control of the capitol building and the grounds and while that's happening members of the house and senate are locked inside these secure rooms. Can you describe like once you were inside what the mood in the in the room was. Oh my god. It was a a sea of humanity and some of that humanity was unmasked and i immediately felt unsafe inside of the safe room. I'm sure you've seen the video by now. We blunt rochester offering the masks and they're laughing and they're completely indignant members actually went over an offer them masks and they refuse how we're trying to distance themselves from these members or i mean you could only distance yourself so much it's too roomful full of two hundred members. People mostly sat talked to other members texted their families and their staff charge their phones. You could still hear that. We are droning sound from some the gas masks and while they just said they're waiting for capital to be cleared. They also thought about what would happen when they eventually got back to the floor of the house. I know i had a conversation with the republican members of congress. You know told them that this had gone off the rails in you know. This is not a coincidence in agreed but of course then he ended up voting.

"First street. And he knows it's not gonna work and so son calls the acting chief of the dc police department robert conte and he says we need help. Now i'm paraphrasing here. But he essentially says anything i got. I'll send it your way. I can send you a hundred right now in mobile came down to assess the situation. See we're going gonna make russ. And i really i couldn't believe is what was going on. Capitol police officers had formed the line a bicycle rack. All the people crowded pushed up against it was literally a war zone. Dance dc police commander ramey bio you'll also hear officer. Daniel hodges and officer mike fannin. They were all on the west side of capitol. The part facing the national mall where the inauguration is held. We had officers engaged in combat across the fence. Line were throwing water bottles pieces of metal that they had broken off from somewhere with the inaugural stage construction site. A start noticing that the members and the crowd are actually stealing our bike racks. I was fairly certain that we were going to be overrun. It was only a matter of time. We literally fought all the way back to those stairwells. We had the stairwells. Also go back up. We get up here to be called the west harris door officers. That were there they kind of refer to it. Now is the tunnel of death. This tunnel is really a hallway that leads inside the capital so we went inside. We close the doors locked them. I believe at the time that we were the only door that was in jeopardy being breached. I had no idea that there was these other doors. I really thought that it was upon us. Those officers in that hallway that we were the last line defense for the capital. It was just maybe a naive. But i always thought that these doors windows and stuff or bomb proof all approved however it seemed like within forty five seconds to a minute individuals outside we will break those doors basically lined up shoulder to shoulder in that narrow tunnel four to six rows the no matter what we were going to be the cork in this whole that kept them from interim and we understand there. At that point i had gone inside and put on gasmask. Cs gas in oc spray pepper spray was flying at that point. They're throwing things out. Shooting bear mason is and of course like being in a tunnel. They shoot bear mace. Everybody's getting it basically coated the entire vegetable and couldn't see anything totally pitch-black i walk in there. I looked at my partner. Jimmy albright who came with me and i was like man. What did we get into. The only thing that i really see was the backs of money officers. Maybe thirty officers. That looks like they were involved in some kind of like vol- style combat body against body just crushing like a barbaric. Seen as back. I would work my way to the front. And eventually i got to the very front there where you saw me in the corner knicks to the door and i just tried to hold hold them back and eventually the just the sheer numbers and all them pushing in unison wedge came to the door my arms are pinned and i couldn't really descend myself so the the guy in front of me took that opportunity to rip my mask off ripped my right away from me being hit with it.

"Rod quick dispatch. If you can call it that on this saturday a like so many of us we at the show are cautiously watching the news this weekend while still trying to process what happened on january six even nine days later i find myself looking at all of these video fragments in these pictures clicking through them and just not able to put it all together like what exactly happened Why weren't more people expecting this. What was going on behind the scenes. Why weren't there more police. They're all of these questions. I've been really wanting someone to just of. Lay it all out like beat by beat. Hello that has happened. I want to bring in martine powers from the washington post martine. Thank you for coming on in case for having me She and her team at post reports have been one of my personal. Go to's this past year and They just released an episode last night. Yeah that i want you to hear so for people who don't know who you are and what post reports is Can you just tell me a little bit about you in the show so Post reports we are the daily news. Podcast at the washington post And i think what's really valuable about being in a place like the newsroom. Post is this access to all these reporters who live and breathe the beats that they cover congress the secret service the military and police. I mean those are people who really know their stuff. And so i think for us after the capital invasion like we also had these questions right like we were we on. Our team are seeing these videos of what was happening but it really felt like snapshots and it was hard to understand like well. We're police trying to do and like why was escalating so quickly. It seemed like everyone was really unprepared. And so we started asking those questions to the reporters in our newsroom. Trying to figure out what actually was going on. Yeah and so you guys. What you ended up doing is creating sort of almost like a minute by minute. Sports cast so to speak But you basically sort of marched through the whole thing. And i wanted to play a couple of excerpts from from that piece you put up last night so you start with the I guess noon january six. The president's speech near the white house You then follow the crowd as they walk from the white house to the capitol. At first it's kind of a jolly country music sort of vibe in the crowd but then it starts to sort of like gradually get darker and more military march like and then You pivot to. This is the part. I found really startling. You pivot to the police who were watching the crowd approach and I guess maybe we'll just pick up with you speaking to one of the reporters at the post asking a question that i think. We've all been wondering why weren't there. More police stopping. Riders from getting to the door of the capital capital. Police had not believed that this protest was going to turn into a siege on the capital. Net is carolina's a national investigative reporter for the post they had been watching the intel gathering from the fbi from the dc metropolitan police. They'd been conferring with their partners. Other federal agencies and there was no indication to them that this was going to be an aggressive warlike riot however what they didn't know is that the fbi a day earlier in their norfolk office had gotten a warning about exactly this a plan to battle and sees the capital at the same time officials in dc. Were starting to get concerned. The mayor's office the city police department police reporter peter. Herman had been hearing for days that they were worried about the possibility for big crowds and for violence law enforcement agencies were also monitoring of transportation in terms of plus tickets they noticed increase in amtrak. Tickets into dc and a big increase in hotel reservations which all lead them to believe in the weeks leading up to this that this is becoming much bigger than anyone expected. Those concerns got communicated to stevenson. Sund the chief of the capitol. Police this is the police department that is in charge specifically of the capitol building and its other office buildings. Carol leader interviewed him about the right on monday. Chief sund at the capitol. Police is starting to become concerned after talking to some of his partners just about the size of the protest. You know there had been a make. America great again protests in police language. They call it. Maga- one mega too. And this was three so there had been protests before but this one on january six. He was starting to see signs that the group was going to be much larger than what they had seen. In the past and so on monday he talks with his two supervisors. The sergeants at arms for the senate and house paul irving and mike stinger and he asks them if he can activate the national guard. Put them on emergency standby just so that they can be sure that they are at the ready. In case there is something that develops but his bosses who are security professionals former very high ranking officials at the secret service by the way they are operating a kind of political world. Their bosses are the speaker of the house and the senate majority leader and they are not thrilled about this idea of activating the national guard. And they suggest that he not do that. There was concern from his bosses about the optics of soldiers standing on the capitol grounds or the capital in the backdrop. And what that would look like almost like soldiers. The army was taking over for the seat of power but even more behind that they were pointing to for this season. They got back in june when they flooded the streets with federal officers and national guardsmen from various states. They were saying basically that we did this. In june and the mayor and everyone else complains and all sorts of problems looked like a military takeover of of the district. And so we're trying to avoid that so we want to basically have a light footprint this time around by one fifty pm on wednesday. It's starting to become clear that a light footprint had been the wrong choice then. There was a stream of protesters just running into the doors of the capital in the videos of this. You see people using riot shields to push back officers. You see people picking up metal bike racks to basically use as battering rams more doors. More windows broken open and then debt and massively powerful symbol to the thousands of people behind them who may not have thought they were going to storm the capital. But i so swept up in the excitement of this happening that be joining. We've seen those images from inside the capital of elderly men and women who are not armed. Get t shirts and sweaters. They do not look like they were there to terrorize members of congress but the ended up having effects anthony job to capitol command Just advise you that. has declared this a breach of the capital as well as a riot at the capital. Also every question. Ospel help this point. Signed the chief of capital. Police is watching all of this unfold from a command center two blocks away from the capital. He's there watching by video feed and getting radio transmission from his incident commanders on the scene and as he sees this he realizes. We aren't going to win this one. We aren't going to be able to hold this line. They had created this huge perimeter far far out onto.

"In the office building next to where rondo was hiding someone else was also sending out a dispatch from behind a barricaded door right now. I am sheltered in place in my office because we have protesters who have stormed the capital. That's congressman mike. Gallagher from wisconsin. He cannot believe what he is hearing and seeing from the capital and he wants to send a message to the president so he reaches out to him in the most direct way that he can think of he posts a video on twitter. We have got to stop this. Mr president you have got to stop this. You are the only person who can call this off. I was desperate and felt like the only thing i could do. Trapped in my office was to try and communicate the gravity of the situation to the white house and they were in the best position to prevent further violence in chaos. Gallagher was in a politically challenging spot. He is a republican but he also disagreed with his colleagues attempts to undermine the election results and in this moment literally hiding from rioters he struggling with how to feel about the president and about his coworkers. There's a cost to line to people for a long time and the fundamental idea that congress was going to change the election results on january. Six wasn't unconstitutional. Lie and i'm not. I don't know if that produced the violence. But it certainly didn't help gallagher by the way was not with the other house members in the secure room. He happened to be in his office in another building when the evacuation started and the safest strategy was just to shelter in place with his aides. It started gaming it out so we barricaded the doors. We had you know we looked out the window and quickly ascertained that you know it was too high up to survive a drop so we couldn't leave out the window if we had to. We left the window open. Interestingly enough like as a decoy if we had to retreat to my interoffice but then we had what now seems. Kind of absurd. Retrospect that at the time i assure you it was quite serious. A discussion where on my wall. I had my ceremonial marine corps. Soared the mamelukes. How big is this order like. What is it actually look like. I mean it's like a curved blade old school kind of like you know what you you imagine a pirate by a like fancy pirate by gary. But i started saying okay. We have no weapons in this office to defend ourselves. And so i took my sword out of its display case and had this debate with my staff about okay. I'm going to use the sword. We have two flagpoles in here. Once the american flight once wisconsin flag. You guys can use those as like. Pike's gosh and i know it sounds absurd but in the moment it was it was quite serious from his window. Gallagher could only get a little sense of what was happening outside naked here the flash bangs and the distance as the capitol. Police were trying to get control the crowd. You could sort of see the cs gas in the air and back. At the capitol officers with the metropolitan police department. Were still trying to help. Capitol police keep writers out of this tunnel. So immediately i walk up to the i kinda rush up to the officers and i start yelling out. Who needs a break like who needs some rest. As we're caught alight bacon our way through this crowd also were handing me guys that were only being held up by other officers body weight. Keep making our way through crowd. Once we've passed through and jimmy got up to the front at that moment. I remember seeing like we weren't just battling fifty or sixty riders in this tunnel. There's like fifteen thousand people out here and it was so surreal. It looks like some medieval battle scene with all these flags and the next thing. I knew i was grabbed and pulled into the crowd. I remember hearing people yelling. You know we got one got one. Pull them in. I remember being taste numerous times and then just like beaten. It seem like from every angle. Because they were just ripping shit all tore my badge off. My best guys will like yell into get my gun chilling with his own gone. Yeah i thought like that's it like i'm just going to get like stripped down in drugs through the west front of the capitol and i was thinking like trying to think in a calculated way like maybe i could appeal to somebody humanity and i just started. I remember yelling.

"What do we know about. What the rioters were trying to achieve. When they got in the building what were they looking for. What were they planning to do. There is a terrifying element about what they were planning to do. At the base martine they wanted to disrupt the affirming of the election of president elect by their second. Goal seemed to be to try to find particular leaders. They didn't like there were groups of rioters charging through the forest. Saying where's nancy. Whereas nancy there was someone who yelled. I think she. Her office is over here offices over here so they were literally trying to either find her or ransack her office. You know there's an ongoing investigation by the fbi. Now because people who were in that initial group had zip ties those plastic handcuffs. You may remember that. There was a plot. That was disrupted by a group of all. Right activists to kidnap and spirit away in michigan. Well there's a great fear part of this group effort or at least a subset of this group was hoping to kidnap him. There were discussions in this group about lynching vice president pence about finding him assassinating him. It's hard to know how prepared or organized people were to do that. But there was a news of symbolism setup outside and facing this threat. Police officers were struggling to understand who was where and which parts of the building had been breached in which had not when the building was breached. Command and control seem to kind of fall apart because nothing had prepared them for this moment that became critically important in the speakers lobby off. That's the entrance to the floor of the house. Where congressman guy go. Head just passed through worried that the barricade was not going to hold. A group clustered in a hallway. Outside the speaker's lobby lawmakers had been taken in that general direction for safety as soon as the breach happened and now the rioters were demanding to get through the doors. They were punching holes in the windows. There's video of this moment and you can see several officers standing in front of the doors. They're just kind of regular police. Like new helmets. No riot gear and they are. What's stopping these writers from breaking through the doors so there's a lot of yelling. People are basically calling the police traders telling them that they need to stand aside then. A couple of things happen very quickly. One of the officers standing in front of the door says to the others. They're ready to roll. The video shows that he then gestures at the officers to come with him and together. They step away from the door and they moved to a nearby wall by staircase and it looks like they've just left the door unguarded. But what you don't see until leader is that they're actually other officers coming up the stairs officers wearing tactical gear helmets. Rifles officers. Were better equipped to deal with this crowd but once the first set of officers moves from the store. The writers feel like they've won they start pressing on the door harder. They're breaking more of the glass. But then they're also police on the other side of the door. Basically trying to prevent the riders from getting to the lawmakers who are still making their way to the secure room there are plain clothes officers agents. Who are supposed to help. Protect the chamber who are barricading. The speakers lobby one of those agents next to the door. Points his gun at the doors. He's yelling at the riders to stop a couple of guys yell. He's got a gun. He's got a gun. But one writer ashley babbitt. She was trying to climb up to a broken section of the door but as that plain clothes officer shoots there is a civil disturbance unit of officers armed directly behind him. They look confused as if. Oh my gosh. Somebody's just got shot. They also looked confused about what their job is at that moment. They are surrounded by protesters on the right they have staff in between them who are trying to flee and they have their own officers on the other side of the window trying to protect it. Looks like such a chaotic moment. Where there's no clear delineation of where the battle line is drawn. It's friendly and unfriendly as and vulnerable and on vulnerable and attackers and police all mixed up in immediate proximity. I got up the steps. And i was sort of checking out the open door and i distinctly remember smelling gunpowder and i thought that was really strange and then a whole bunch of trump's supporters came running out of that door and yelling. They shot someone. They shot a girl. They shot someone. She's dead at that point. I think again you saw some folks who were like. Oh i don't want to get caught up in something like that and so some people were were starting to leave. Some people were walking down the steps but then you also had the opposite effect happen where some folks who were out there in they're sort of pseudo military outfits we're running up the steps and we're running toward the gates and there was some argument about. Should we go into. We need to defend ourselves by now. The capitol complex is completely under lockdown. The members of the house and senate who are on the floor at the time of the breach were whisked away to. These secret's safe rooms. But there were so many other people legislative aids cafeteria staff janitorial workers journalists. Who were not really sure where to go. One of these people was rhonda kovin post video journalist and officers hold us to find a room and lock ourselves into it until we knew that the coast was clear. Wait the the they were just like go forth into the exterior offices of the capitol and just like find some place to high wind a place to hide. They gave us now direction other than that. They had to run themselves and go respond so they were just quickly telling us the best we can tell you right now is to go find some place and lock yourselves. And they're don't come out until the coast is clear so myself are videography lindsay and two hundred journalists from another network. We just we kind of paired up as a force of other media went in other directions. Everybody just kind of scattered and we. The four of us tested some rooms in the basement to see if they had a lock and couldn't really find many But we did find a room that was an electrical closet and the basement and i was doing live hits from our live show because we were so on air. So i'm talking everybody through what i'm seeing experiencing while lindsay and the two men we were with the other journalists or finding material to blockade the door instead of barricade rhonda colin give us an update from her. You are well. i have moved From where i i last was when i smoked you we were told by capitol police to Not only take shelter with aside the locker.

"On the inside are so clearly outnumbered some of them. Try to be nice. Like okay you've had your fine now please. Can you leave. And some cops tried to get physical. But when they grab one guy a whole bunch of other people start running by them. Some of them start using misdirection as a tactic like the point people in the direction of big important set of doors and it's only when people get their that they realized that is actually the exit. And then there's video of officer eugene. Couldn't he was the officer who was filmed running up a stairwell away from this angry mom. That was literally chasing him. When i first saw it i thought this poor man. He has a time he doesn't seem to be willing to pull his weapon. He's being chased up two flights of steps by a marauding band. The first group that's gotten in their threatening him and he's radioing for help when he gets to the top of the second floor steps and you think that he is in panic for his life but as it turns out he is extremely calculated. He gets to the top of that second floor. He looks left. The mob is below him in a tiny tiny stairwell and they're still coming and.

"Those capital police officers behind that piece of furniture pointing their guns through the broken glass of the door with faces on the side and they were what was standing between us and that mom. That's when i thought we may never make it out of the chamber. There's more shouting. They're more rioters outside the door. This is one capitol. Police are basically like we need to go now. The security forces on the floor started moving people out of the chamber and down the stairway as one last wants to make sure we didn't miss anybody because that's also very dangerous. Thing congressman geigo walks out into the speakers lobby and towards staircase and as. I looked last ice when i saw a barricaded door. You know the rioters. The terrorists a seditionists pounding on the door i was afraid. They're gonna breakthrough in and there were still members trying to get down into the tunnels. I really thought we may have to fight our way out of this or fight them off enough until security got there as i proceeded down the stairs you could tell that capitol security had set up a kind of safety board or to move us through. Though it was very hasty would tell you won't point. I get to a hallway and is grabbing like two young guys with rifles. And tell them stand here and if anybody comes shoot them right and the fact that they have to they're not covering all the sectors for evacuation very. That was very scary. When i heard that very early in the insurrection as all the members of congress were still gabbling in it had already become clear that police the capital needed more help but that help was slow to arrive at one one. Ten chief sund radios to his bosses. I need emergency declaration now for the national guard and you may remember that. That's what he asked for on monday and they denied him so now he's saying in the emergency. I need the national guard. It takes an hour for his supervisors. The two sergeants at arms to run it up the flagpole amid a battle outside to get approval to ten chief son talks to general walker by phone and says. I need your help. I have the emergency declaration. Please send those national guard officers. That said you could send. But there's a problem. General walker believes he needs approval from the pentagon across the water. The mayor is panicking and wondering what in the world is happening. On the capitol hill her aid gets a call going between general walker. Chief signed and the army secretary's office at to twenty-six on that conference call chief son says to the army secretary's representative lieutenant general piatt. I making an emergency urgent immediate requests for assistance. I need boots on the ground now. Lieutenant general piatt hems and hawes. He says according to multiple people on the call. I'm not sure. I like the visuals of the national guard standing police line outside the capitol again. This was interpreted to be a suggestion than the military was standing on the steps of the capitol it would look like the army was stopping people from exercising their free speech rights. This of course was not a peaceful protest. He goes on to say that he feels that they should consider you know what the plan is exactly for the national guard before they said them. This is gob smacking to both chief. Conti to the mayor the mayor's chief of staff and especially to capitol police chief son. They literally have their jaws on the floor. The capital has been breached. The visigoths thir- inside. It's two twenty six and the army secretary's representative is questioning whether they should map out a plan or whether the visuals of this are not ideal chief. Conti says i'm sorry sir. Are you denying a request for emergency national guard since lieutenant general piatt says according again to people on the call. No i'm not denying. I'm just saying i'm a little concerned. I think we need to make plan again on the other end of the call capitol police the mayor the dc police chief are just shocked. They end the call with lieutenant general. Pyatt saying he'll go and see if he can get permission ends. According to what capitol police chief son told care. All that moment was a missed opportunity to get this under control sooner rather than later in the military if they had been on guard he said if i had national guard at the start i could held these people at bay and i could've done something until reinforcements arrived. I think chief sund. We'll be the first to say. He knows he failed in planning for this event but he also wasn't helped very much by his own bosses and in the middle of the crisis the army did. Do you think that part of the underpinnings of that conversation was thinking about the protests from the summer and that sort of a desire to prevent like similar dynamic from what people had concerned about after the protests i think there is great concern within dc officialdom and within the capitol police that the army's thinking about the optics were shocked by the nature of the protest. This was a pro-trump insurrection. This was a group of folks who were in favor of the president's message and inside the army again. I'm sharing what local officials fear inside the army. They believed this idea of holding back important. Reinforcements was out of both support for the president and fear of the president for the record. Pentagon officials have said that they believe they responded to. Dc's request appropriately and more largely. They say that this is not how the national guard is supposed to work that. They aren't set up to be a quick reaction force like the police. Even as members of the house were escaping through the capital tunnels into a secure room. They were not aware of just. How many riders had penetrated the building. And it seems like all of these rioters were carrying cameras taking videos of themselves marauding through the capital roaming the hallways breaking windows and doors to let other people in some of them even stopped to marvel at the capitol rotunda and a huge all paintings others start breaking into offices stealing stuff trashing stuff and the capitol police.

"The oldest person in the photo department so on that day. I wanted to be as far away from covid spreading mobs as possible and requested the hill as an assignment because it would be so safe bigger of the united states. It started off exactly as expected fairly dull and perfunctory. This was just as trump was finishing his speech before the mob started attacking the capital pursuant to the constitution the laws of the united states senate and house of representatives are meeting enjoyed session. Just about at one o'clock on the dot with the calling of each state in alphabetical order. Vice president pence would ask. Are there any objections to counting. The certificate of vote of the state of alabama at the teller verified appears to be and if no one objected and he would say okay. This is certified and they'd read the number of electors certificate of the electoral vote of the state of alabama seems president than certificate of the electoral vote of the state alaska certificate of the electoral vote and the state of arizona. And within fifteen minutes the first objection popped up to counting the certificate of vote of the state of arizona. Taylor is verified appears to be regular inform and authentic. There was an objection from representative. Gosar i ride for myself and sixty of my colleagues to object to the counting of the electoral ballots from arizona. And that was seconded. By senator ted cruz and ejection presented in writing and signed by both a representative and a senator complies with the law. That forces the session to interrupt itself and each chamber has two separate and debated themselves and report. Its decision back to the joint session. The senate will now retire to its chamber. So arizona was the first contested state. I was down there talking to my colleagues preparing our defense. That's congressman ruben. Gago democrat from arizona and a former marine. He was on the floor of the house. And what were the first indications to you that something was off or that things were starting to escalate when they took away leadership. I didn't see pelosi. Get whisked away. But i saw hoyer gate with away in. That clearly told me that something was about to go down to seventeen speaker. Pelosi and house majority leader. Steny hoyer are escorted out of the room by a bunch of men in suits. And just as that's happening you hear as gal come from the back of the room. Those will be in order so colleague of mine shouted that and other colleagues for shushing him. That's congresswoman barack escobar democrat from texas. The show she heard was from a fellow democrat. He's saying to the republicans this is because of you and you can hear one or the republicans go back and tell to shut up. And i yelled over and i said i'm with you buddy because i felt the same way i felt exactly the same way it was because of them. A reporter showed me pointed me as phone and it was the image i saw. Were hundreds of people crawling over the scaffolding. And that was a little disconcerting. Because i know where that's gaffe holding is it's right next to the front door deep inside the boundaries and there were lots of people a capitol police sergeant i believe came in and he tried to speak calmly but i could tell. He was breathing heavily. He says at first people have broken end. They broken through the barriers. That doesn't really scare us. I mean we've seen that happen before endeavor ever protesters and then somebody else came in and started saying they would need to lock the doors unlocked and everyone lock ourselves in this point. We're still trying to continue with the debate. I don't gave us want us to stop especially for budget thugs and terrorists. Some members of congress are The republicans started hearing pounding on the front door of congress. Then announcement comes over. Its at everybody under your seat. There's a bag. Open that bag and put on the escape hood. These are basically like gas masks. They actually live under every seat in the house. And the senate all the time the life jacket under the seats in a plane and they've got little motorized fans to pump in filtered air and so there was confusing little moment when like representatives are looking at each other and they're pulling out these shiny plastic bags with what it looks to me like. If you took a dry cleaning bag and pulled it over yourself there was a lot of. What do i do with this kind of energy going on the other. Kind of absurd thing about these masks. They actually make this. Sounds like this high pitched buzz. Imagine if a dentist drill worrying in your ear while you're being evacuated from hazardous situation that's kind of what that's what it sounded like to me anyway and so in the middle of this very scary situation. The room sounds like it's filled with a bunch of kazue's at this point now people are getting really animated and excited and the pounding on the front door of the house of representatives is getting increasingly stronger when the bags came out. They're not intuitive. It's just a folded up piece of plastic representative ruben. Gago jumped up on couple of chairs and started instructing his fellow congressmen and women how to open the bag. How to use it and remember guy is a former marine. He's been trained in using gas masks. He's gone through drills with real tear gas and he sees some of his colleagues literally start to hyperventilate and he's afraid that one of them might actually pass out. I think people were about to really freak out and we just can't have freak outs in a very tense situation. We need to. We can resume on the floor. There were staff members. And i think even a few representatives starting to drag furniture from parts of the room desks and benches and were piling it up to fortify the main door to the chamber door where the president walks through every state of the union. That's the door that they were assembling outside when they were a quick sequence of pop's two in a row. Some of my colleagues are convinced that these were gunshots. But i'm still not convinced that they could have been stunned. Greenie or flash bangs. It could have been breaking glass but had caused everyone's temperature to rise. People began to duck. Guns could pulled and everything just sort of froze at that point what was burned and will forever be in. My brain is the image of.

"In the videos of this. You see people using riot shields to push back officers. You see people picking up metal bike racks to basically use as battering rams more doors. More windows broken open and then that sends a massively powerful symbol to the thousands of people behind them who may not have thought they were going to storm the capital. But i so swept up in the excitement of this happening that they joined it. We've seen those images from inside. The capital of elderly men and women are not armed. T shirts sweaters. They do not look like they were there to terrorize members of congress but the ended up having that effect jock to capitol command Just advising you did D be has declared this a breach of the capital as well as a riot at the capital. Also they question. This point signed the chief of capital. Police is watching all of this unfold from a command center two blocks away from the capital. He's there watching by video feed and getting radio transmission from his incident commanders on the scene and as he sees this he realizes. We aren't gonna win this one. We aren't going to be able to hold this line. They had created this huge perimeter far far out onto first street. And he knows it's not gonna work and so son calls the acting chief of the dc police department robert conte and he says we need help. Now i'm paraphrasing here. But he essentially says anything got. I'll send it your way. I can send you hundred right now and more will come came down to assess the situation see. We're going to make arrests. And i i couldn't believe is what was going on. In capitol police officers had formed the line a bicycle rack. People crowd crowded pushed up against it was really a war zone. Dance dc police. Commander remy kyle. You'll also hear officer. Daniel hodges and officer. Mike fennell they were all on the west side of capitol. The part facing the national mall where the inauguration is held. We had officers engaged hand to hand combat across the fence. Line were throwing water bottles pieces of metal that they had. I guess broken off from somewhere with the inaugural stage construction site a start noticing that the members and the crowd are actually stealing our bike. Racks i was fairly certain that we were going to be overrun. It was only a matter of time. We literally fought all the way back to those stairwells. We hit the stairwells ulcers. Go back up. We get up top and told us on the west harris door. All the officers that were there they kind of refer to it. Now is the tunnel of death. This tunnel is really a hallway that leads inside the capital so we went inside. We close the doors locked them. I believe at the time that we were the only door that was in jeopardy breached. I had no idea that there was these other doors. I really thought that it was upon us. And those officers in that hallway that we were the last line defense for the capital. It was just maybe a naive. But i always thought that these doors and windows and stuff were bomb prove prove however It seemed like within forty five seconds to a minute individuals outside we to break those doors basic lined up shoulder to shoulder in that narrow tunnel four to six rows the no matter what were going to be the cork in this whole that kept them from entering and we stand there at that point. I had gone inside and put on gas mask. See us gas nosy spray. Pepper spray was flying at that point. They're throwing things out. Shooting bear mason is and of course being in a tunnel they shoot bear. Everybody's getting it. Basically coated the entire vegetable. Couldn't see anything totally pitch-black. I walk in there. I looked at my partner. Jimmy albright who came with me and i was like man. What did we get into. The only thing that i could really see. Was the backs of money officers. Maybe thirty officers. That looked like they were involved in some kind of like medieval style. Combat body against body just crushing like a barrack soon as also fell back. I would work my way to the front. And eventually i got the very front air where you saw me in the corner next to the door and i just tried to hold hold them back as best i could and eventually the just the sheer numbers and all them pushing in unison wedge came to the door my arms were pinned and i couldn't really descend myself that point so the the guy in front of me took that opportunity to rip my mask off ripped my time away from the started being the hit with it. You know. I didn't want to be the one to start shooting because i knew that they had guns. Even season guns all day all yesterday and the only reason i could think of that. They weren't shooting us that they were waiting for us to shoot first. And if it became a firefight between a couple of hundred dollars.

"As president. trump's speech ended the ellipse. We started seeing thousands of people coming from the ellipse toward the capital. Which is what the president had told them to encourage them to do but went from country music to sort of usa usa. These people marching up. The street had come from all over the country. New york north carolina florida even as far as california in the case of a thirty five year. Old woman named ashley. Babbitt whose name you might now recognize. There is a seat of nothing but red white and blue patriots trump and it was amazing repeated. president talk. We are now walking down the inaugural path to the capitol building three million people. God bless america patriots and as these people start massing around the capital. The mood starts to shift reporter. Morris elaine was there i was drawn to this crowd of people in sort of the center on the east side of the capitol who seemed really rowdy and this one woman was yelling and saying. Get the kids out of here. Get these kids out of here. And so i kind of move closer to that crowd to see what was going on. And she was the first person that i really heard. Voice desire to storm the capital. She was saying you know. We're going to take the building. We're going to storm the capital. Get these kids out of here. If you're not serious about storming the capital you need to leave. And you could just sort of feel that more. People were being egged on riled up by that message and then sort of the physicality changed right. Instead of just standing there cheering. They started to jostle defense is they started to push started to sort of converge around the police line from the corner of is we see sort of individuals that scale and then all the fence and this is the first breakthrough of of that first barrier and once we have five six people who've been over then there's sort of a click in the crowd and everyone sets rush as that happened. You can definitely tell that they realized they could get away with pushing this line. And before i knew it they were streaming up the steps to the capital. I did see some police officers seemingly tried to get in no way seemingly try to hold these barricades together but they were outnumbered and once the crowd pushed past them. They kind of scott and they let the crowd go up the stairs at the same time we have these men again in camel gear. Who are yelling ford ford sort of like. It's an attack like something like she gave me a lot of the readings tonight that my first thought was okay. We knew they were going to try this. We knew that they wanted to do this. And i thought for sure they get on the steps. Maybe they'd make it up to that little terrorists and they would feel good about themselves. They would feel like they did the thing and that's where it would end. I had no inkling that they would get the door open. And i think that the moment that i realized that things were totally off the rails was when they opened the door i was wondering how did they get that far. Where the police. I thought for sure that there had to be someone on the other side of the door holding it together or waiting for them and arresting whoever tried to come in the gates and that wasn't the case so carol. This is the question that so many people who saw what was happening outside. The capitol are wondering. Why weren't there more police stopping. Riders from getting to the door of the capital capital. Police had not believed that this protest was going to turn into a siege on the capital net is carolina national investigative reporter for the post. They had been watching the intel gathering from the fbi from the dc metropolitan police. They'd been conferring with their partners. Other federal agencies and there was no indication to them that this was going to be an aggressive warlike riot however what they didn't know is that the fbi a day earlier in their norfolk office had gotten a warning about this plan to battle and sees the capital at the same time officials in dc. Were starting to get concerned. The mayor's office the city police department police reporter peter. Herman had been hearing for days that they were worried about the possibility of for big crowds and for violence law enforcement agencies were also monitoring of transportation in terms of tickets they noticed increase in amtrak. Tickets into dc and a big increase in hotel reservations which all led them to believe in the weeks leading up to this that this was becoming much bigger than anyone expected. Those concerns got communicated to stevenson and the chief of the capitol police. This is the police department that is in charge specifically of the capitol building and its other office buildings. Carol leader interviewed him about the right on monday. Chief sund at the capitol. Police is starting to become concerned after talking to some of his partners just about the size of the protest. You know there had been a make. America great again protests in police language. They call it. Maga- one mega too. And this one was maga- three so there had been protests before but this one on january six. He was starting to see signs that the group was going to be much larger than what they had seen in the past and so on monday he talks with his two supervisors the sergeants at arms for the senate and the house. Paul irving and mike stinger and he asks them if he can activate the national guard. Put them on emergency standby just so that they can be sure that they are at the ready. In case there is something that develops but his two bosses who are security professionals former very high ranking officials at the secret service by the way they are operating in a kind of political world their bosses are the speaker of the house and the senate majority leader and they are not thrilled about this idea of activating the national guard and they suggest that he not do that. There was concern from his bosses about the optics of soldiers standing on the capitol grounds or with the capital in the backdrop. And what that would look like almost like the soldiers. The army was taking over for the seat of power but even more behind they were pointing to for this season. They got back in june when they flooded the streets with federal officers and national guardsmen from various states. They were saying basically know. We did this soon. And the mayor and everyone else complains and to all sorts of problems looked like a military takeover of the of the district. And so we're trying to avoid that so we want to basically have a light footprint this time around the by one fifty pm on wednesday it started to become clear that a light footprint had been the wrong choice then. There was a stream of protesters just running into the doors of the capital.

"We have all seen what happened. At the capitol on january sixth shocking videos photos snapshots of a chaotic day. But there are still so many questions like why weren't there more police. What were they doing in these videos. We saw widing more people. Expect there's violence and what was happening behind the scenes today. We try to answer those questions. Were telling the story of the capital invasion from the outside and inside and we're bringing invoices from people who were there people who have been working to better understand what happened and people who you may not have heard from yet. Just a warning. This episode contains explicit language as well as the sounds and descriptions of violence and the story of the day of course starts with. The president will not show the magnitude of this crowd. Even when i turned on today. I looked and i saw thousands of people here but noon wednesday january sixth. The police were president. Trump is speaking is known as the ellipse it. This grassy area sept the white house and the crowd at this point is huge. Even by trump rally standards eight thousand people here to listen to the president's baseless claims about the election. All of us here today do not want to see our election. Victory stolen by emboldened radical left democrats. Which is what they're doing and stolen by the fake news media. That's what they've done and what they're doing we will never give up. We will never concede it doesn't happen. You don't concede when there's a little less than two miles away street down the national mall. Rebecca ten is one of many post reporters outside the capitol and the atmosphere there. The best way to describe it is. It was a party. They will playing country music. There were people in costumes. Those a woman dressed as the statue of liberty and there were women and children at this point back up the mall by the white house. The president continues his speech. Nobody a july came along at any idea how corrupt elections were and again. Most people would stand there at nine o'clock in the evening and said i wanna thank you very much and they go off to some other life but i said something's wrong here. Something's really wrong can have happened and we fight we fight like how and if you don't fight like hell you're not gonna have a country anymore and then around one pm.
