"Country is not wired. The political engine of our country doesn't move fast. You can blame the founding fathers for that. They didn't like the idea of moving too fast because they were used to kings. Who could move really fast and usually made dumb mistakes so you just got to not lose faith in the system and just keep the pressure on because over time it works. What would you say to someone who is considering a run for congress. What should they know that they might not know in the abstract. Will i guess. I'd say two things. Maybe the second one is a little bit influenced by what happened on january. Six the first thing i would say is exactly what i just said. Which is we have a system that i have a lotta respect for for all of its words and flaws. Too much money to slow not. Everybody here is Exactly who. I would choose to have here. You know son of a gun. Who knew if you're comfortable with incremental progress because that's the way the machine is wired and every once in a while amidst the incremental progress is a huge step forward civil rights in the nineteen sixties. Maybe the affordable care act and dodd frank in the early part of the last decade every once in a while you have a big move but if you're the kind of person who's willing to just kind of get up work hard over a period of time you will find success if what you believe. Is that because you've arrived in washington everything's going to be different You're likely to be frustrated. And the second thing. I would say as may be related to what i saw in january six and i'll say this in a very nonpartisan way if you're campaigning to be in the congress or if you're in the congress be honest about its flaws democracies very messy system and we have a particularly messy democracy lately. But don't completely trash the system because if people like me and whoever challenges me two years from now if the messages washington is corrupt and it can't serve you and it's a bunch of bad people and special interests the logical outcome of saying that enough times is people breaking windows in the united states capitol. Now i understand why people do that. You know this has been going on for two hundred and forty years in this country. Washington always the boogeyman was always what you attack but be a little thoughtful about what happened on january six when you talk about the problems with our system of government. Yeah it's got too much money in it Incumbents may have too much of an advantage but but be careful about telling the american people that it is an evil and corrupt system. Because at some point they'll start listening to you. What did january sixth change for you. You know you've been a long serving congressperson you've been there since two thousand nine. I'm sure you had some pretty intense ideas about the institution you've been through several administrations but what was it like on january seventh. What did you think i didn't understand. This are now. I see this even more clearly. I have to tell ya half an hour. I was in the chamber when it was attacked. And a half an hour of ruling zaidi i. I was a little stunned by the security failure. I assume that something like that could never happen and boom it did i. I'm still not at peace with the idea that thousands of americans and i'm look i'm an optimist. I believe that. Americans are not bad people and i and i don't have reason to believe that all of the thousands of people who showed up at the capitol are inherently evil and bad people but somehow they had gotten their selves twisted into a world where they thought it was okay to break windows and attack the global symbol of self government and so it really gives me an appreciation for how the power of demagoguery the power of lies. The power of fear and anger can twist somebody because there were a lot of twisted people that day on january i mean. Here's here's a crowd that i think if you'd asked the day before you know you back the blue diaz stand up for police officers. They would've said oh absolutely the next day they killed a couple of them or they killed one would subsequently killed himself and so. I'm still a little stunned by the ability of hate and lies and demagoguery to twist people into places that are unrecognizable and. I think we'd better unpack that. That's why i said what i did about advice. I would give somebody who wanted to come here point out the problems in our system of government but when you start using language like on american unpatriotic people will listen and they will see that as a reason to leave their senses behind and do some very bad things well and i. I just wonder as a member of congress you know. I think it would be easy before that day to compartmentalize some of the language of your colleagues and say it's elections. It's media appearances. It's their stick. But i can't imagine how much more difficult that becomes after that date to see some of the language from these people that you like. You said you have to work with you. Have to. You have to come together. You have to work on legislation. You have to figure out infrastructure and cybersecurity because it would feel like to me that compartmentalization would really no longer work as a strategy. Yeah i mean. I've had to work hard to remind myself because i experienced emotions and anger and desire for a for even in the score and everything but every day. I remind myself that the reason. I'm here is not to satisfy my own personal wants but to try to get something done for my constituents and that requires me to work with others and i may not want to work with somebody. But that's somebody got sent here by seven hundred fifty thousand people just the same way i did and so may not may not make me happy to work with somebody that i feel encouraged the violence that occurred on january six. But my primary job here is to get stuff done for my constituents. And that's that's that's what i'm gonna do. Can i ask you one more thing. That's just not my own personal obsession. Because you mentioned the number of people represented by members of congress. And i think so much of what happened on january six is people like you said not feeling heard feeling frustrated and i think some of it has to be with the size of the constituency and i wonder how much talk there isn't congress. I know there's another like of democracy reforms about changing the members of congress how many members we actually have increasing the number so that people aren't representing seven hundred thousand that they're representing fewer. So that people feel like they have more access in their voices are heard. Is there any discussion of that within the halls of congress. Yeah i've heard that suggestion a lot and it makes sense to me. I must tell you i'm not. I'm not an expert on these things. But it makes sense to me. And i think you frame it exactly right. The truth is try as i might. It's very very hard to get around as much as much as i might like to. I represent seventeen towns and by the way my mind are all pretty compact. I can drive from one to the other in an hour. Right a lot of my colleagues. It's nine hours across their districts out west and so it sounds like a reasonable idea. There's not much Action on that idea but but you're pointing in the right direction you know. Let me let me give you another example. This was a tough one but the electoral college about causing people not to feel heard. You know we've now had three or four episodes where the popular will of the american people was overridden by the electoral college. Now if you talk to somebody from montana they're gonna give you a good reason why that should be..

"Or democratic vision for what we want immigration to look like mean. He he did do an immigration reform. Bill which is way more specific than other administrations have put forth as far as like when they first came into office. I mean he has. It's not like he. You know was ignoring this until the surge at the border. I mean that first day like this is one of his big priorities. I want a very specific immigration. Bill ready to go but even like at this point so much of comprehensive immigration reform is very specific problem solving like because we've neglected for so long like so much of the reform is just it's comprehensive in that. It's trying to tackle all the problems. We've neglected over the past. But it's not necessarily comprehensive in in the way that it's presenting a vision for the future like what do we the border to look like. What are our guiding principles as far as who can come in and who gets deported and how long they stay before they get deported. And how that deportation process is gonna look. And i think that's what really is hard right now as a little bit of that is missing. Not because i think the administration sees it as important but because this issue has been neglected for so long and because so much of the conversation was driven by just not being a human rights violation like what was going on in the trump administration that as we start to chip away at these sort of acute problems. We do have to get to a point where we are presenting a vision for the future. I agree with a lot of what you said. I definitely agree with that sentiment that we need to be looking at root causes and i think it is really unfortunate that the republican response on this has been. Well we can't do anything on the big picture of immigration until the small picture is resolved. And what we know from history. Is that the small picture doesn't get resolved without the big picture getting resolved. And i also think it's just beyond the pale for specifically kevin mccarthy to talk about human rights issues at the border given where the gop stood with the trump administration on the border. So i share all of that sentiment in frustration. I struggle a little bit. I agree with you that there are finite resources within the federal government. I think that's hard to hear from an administration that has said from the beginning. No everything's a priority and we can do it and from a party that is generally animated by the idea that we bring the federal government to our problems all of them because the federal government can do more than anyone else. I do though take in good faith that the administration is trying here and is is working some concrete steps that i'm not hearing a ton of reporting about in terms of how those steps are designed to solve the problem i've read more about the deployment of fema the federal emergency management agency to the border in terms of like. They say it's not a crisis but they sent fema. Okay well the other side of that is that they sent fema. They're trying to work on this. They've entered into contracts for hotel rooms to house people in more humane conditions. I think one of the most significant things that's happened is we reached an agreement with mexico in exchange for some astrazeneca vaccines going to mexico. Mexico will help us better. Contain the surge and mexico has announced the closure of its southern border to non essential travel. There's consideration of flying people coming into the states near the canadian border so that we better use all of our immigration resources to help move people through the system and the administration has been saying clearly. Do not come now now. That isn't being heard clearly and of course it doesn't and there's a lot of that that's out of their control but they are telling people we are not prepared for you to be here now beth over the weekend we were talking about this and specifically a vision for the future and you were talking about a proposal from the republican side that you are encouraged by yes. So republican representative maria elvira salazar from florida spent thirty five years as a spanish language journalists covering border crises and central american conflicts and immigration issues in miami and she voted with democrats for the two pieces of immigration legislation that the house passed last week. The american dream and promise act we talked about both of these. On the podcast and the farm workforce modernization act so she crossed the aisle and she said i am showing that i'm serious about getting things done and i hope that this sign of good faith will to work with me on my proposal as well and so she has just said that the immigration reform put forward by the biden administration and its allies in. Congress is never going to be law that it. There's no way it gets through the senate and it seems unlikely that gets through the house even with a democratic majority and she said this is a quote s hispanics. We don't want any more false promises. False hopes we want for those eleven million undocumented. Who are here in the country to be treated with dignity. But this will not happen. It will not happen if we don't stop the madness at the border with real permanent solutions not with executive orders and she uses the phrase dignity a lot because her proposal is called the dignity proposal. And it's pretty straightforward. It starts with border security and it makes border security. The top priorities physical barriers technology. Security at ports of entry would have to happen before any other reforms follow and i thought that component was pretty interesting. She also calls for some asylum reform to prevent abuse of system the system while improving the processing side for people fleeing persecution violence. She has an enhanced efforts to immediately remove criminals. You know this was. The priority of the obama administration was focusing on people who had committed violent acts so i wonder if she could get some but partisan worked together on that immediate legal status for dreamers which is has wide bipartisan support among americans and a pathway to permanent legalization through work military service or higher education and then kind of the centerpiece of this proposal is what she calls the ten year dignity program it would provide work visas for people who are here undocumented. If they pass a criminal background check pay back. Taxes start paying income taxes and remain employed. They would also have to pay a fine and interest. Contribution to the american small business fund and those initial contributions would go to the paycheck protection program and then to workforce training initiative. So she's really trying to tie together a focus on the health of the american economy along with an immigration policy. That is tough but fair. She would say that folks in this program would receive no access to federal means tested benefits or entitlements and that once you've successfully completed that ten year program you would get indefinitely. Renewable five year visas to maintain a work permit and legal status. And then after that you could start the what. She calls the redemption program to earn permanent resident status. To be in that program. You would have to learn english and us. Civics contribute to the community through either volunteer work or contributions to that small business fund. And then you would have eligibility to existing pathways to citizenship. She makes the point that she's not writing a new way to become a citizen here. People in this program would go to the back of the line that we already have on pathways to citizenship. But they would have that eligibility and her program also creates some guestworker reform. So what did you think of this when you took a look. Sarah i don't love all of it. It's not the immigration reform..

"To think about holding space for every single life. We're going to get into a situation where the numbers are pretty overwhelming as well one of the top stories as we record today on monday is the situation at our southern border and this will continue to be a real challenge for the biden administration for the state of texas for a number of nonprofits that work very hard at the border and really for our entire country for a long time. We have currently a surge in people trying to come to the united states about fourteen. Thousand people are in federal custody and more people are coming in february eighteen thousand nine hundred forty five family members and nine thousand unaccompanied children came into custody. That is up one hundred sixty eight percent in terms of total people and sixty three percent in terms of unaccompanied children from january. It is not as high as those numbers in the spring of twenty nineteen just to give us some perspective but it is a lot of people you know it strikes me that maybe we just need to start orienting ourselves to spring surges. That this like you said it's gonna be a reality for a while we are going to see surges of people particularly from central america particularly unaccompanied minors because there is such political unrest because the economy's in many of these countries are struggling people can't provide for themselves or their children. Of course we have the added pressure of the pandemic. then of course we have whether that has contributed to the issue. And i mean whether in central america natural disasters in concert with better travel weather. So i don't a part of me. That's like i don't love the language about crisis because this is clearly going to be an ebb and flow. That's going to be a reality for a while right. I don't think we've seen through very different approaches. Between the obama administration and the trump administration and other biden administration the surges still occur. And so that it's not an issue of will if you put the right administrative approaches in place the surges. Don't happen right so we know that and instead of acting like it's just out of nowhere feels like we need to orient ourselves to this new reality. I think it's true that the weather is a factor and everything that you mentioned contributes. I also think it's fair to say we see a surge typically with a change in administration and we were bound to see a surge with a change to an administration that talks about immigration and more welcoming humane respectful positive terms. I think it is important to put all of the pieces together. So it's not. Just you know joe biden surge but i think it is fair. I think joe biden would acknowledge the fairness of saying yeah. We went from an administration that was so focused on keeping people out to an administration that wants to find a way to allow people in in a more humane way and in a controlling. and we. Aren't there yet. So what we hear from the administration is that the trump administration really left them no infrastructure for bringing people in the every effort of the trump administration was just about deterrence. So we really don't have the facilities. We don't have the personnel to handle this many people at once i think the biden administration was right to start Taking in children at the border and families with very young children. But i think everyone has to acknowledge that they did so before we were fully staffed up and prepared to handle what that means on the other side and there are some things that are just out of their hands to. We had a public health order in place to send some families back to mexico because of the covid nineteen pandemic but mexico stopped taking some of those families and so that caused our border agents to have to accept parents with children under seven years old representative veronica. Escobar of texas has said. There was no transition here. The transition wasn't insurrection. That really struck me and so for lots of reasons. We have a real problem here and the administration is working on it. I don't like the reporting about whether this is is or is not a crisis. I think just describing what's happening. Let's everyone know that it is an urgent situation that requires emergency responses. And we're seeing the administration trying to respond. That's what's so hard is when it becomes an urgent situation. The conversation about a long term solution fills a little bit of grasp to me. You know it feels like well. Let's just do triage because it's just this urgent situation then it'll be over and then we won't have this problem but clearly. The problem keeps reappearing right. And i think with regard to the biden administration. There's two things the first is that you know. We've talked about on the podcast before with regards to foreign policy. The biden administration came in laser focused on the pandemic and covid relief. I think that was the proper priority. And i think that even when we're talking about something as big as the federal government energy and focus and you know. All of that is a finite resource. There is only so much particularly in administration that's being led by one person or late. The biden harris administration to people like. There's just only so much of the people at the tops attention and ability to give direction and give priorities. That's out there. And i think that that's what we're seeing right like. They were so laser focused and they did a fantastic job and continue to do a good job with regards to the vaccines and the relief package that the other problems are starting to up right something they weren't there and it's not that the biden ministration didn't care but again it's they have finite resources and so it's gonna be imperative that they start to redirect that focus to other places from the diplomatic issues at the talks between the us over the weekend to you. Know other foreign policy issues into the immigration crisis at the border. I think the other issue. They did a really good job on this in the the new york times. This morning is that there's not a real clear progressive or democratic vision for what we want immigration to look like mean. He he did do an immigration reform. Bill which is way more specific than other.

"Saying, Hey, let's do things different because you know there's no political capital quite frankly there's not a lot of. You know they're not a lot of equivalent of the major defense contractors who are making campaign contributions saying, let's do this radically differently when you're when you say, let's do it differently and be open to change in government. You're also saying we're going to take someone's lunch away that lunch may be a contractor that lunch may be mid range a military officer, and that that brings me to risk right again, government is not good at why is that? You know members of Congress like myself we're running every two years so. If we screw something up and there's a failure with my name attached to it, and let's remember that success has to include failure because without risk there is no success in with risk there is no absence of failures. So you know let's start with me. You know if I screw something up and there's project with my name on it and it and it sales think thinks cylinder. By the way we can talk more about that. If you're interested, it becomes a huge political issue what about the full bird colonel in the Pentagon? You know thinking about software. You know there's that old saying nobody ever got fired for hiring. IBM in the commercial world. Well, the in defense contracting world you you're colonel and you take a real risk on some silicon valley startup that has new and exciting technology, and it goes south which it might. You can just count on the contractors and the senators and the members of Congress you know making it pretty unlikely that has. A full bird colonel, you're going to be a flag officer down the road. So we it's hard to image really really hard because neither of those concepts are natural to the federal government, but it's a huge liability that they are not i. think it's incumbent on us to think about how can we? How can we make the system more tolerant of risk because without risk you are you are calcified if you're calcified eventually you lose. So you mentioned software in that answer, you know one thing that really sort of jumped out to me is kind of the proclamation here that the software development process in particular is broken and that it is creating a intolerable forms of of risks to to use the same term what is your sense of the nature of the current software development process and why should it be? Why is it so concerning whatever we think about how it relates to kind of the core activity of the intelligence community in terms of collection nationalists, storage things like that. Yeah. So it is worth in the report does is it's worth of software differently, and there's there's a couple of good reasons for that number one. This wasn't true fifty years ago or even twenty five years ago. But today software is almost everything right software because all of our weapons systems because our surveillance systems criminal because our automobiles and refrigerators are all wired together in ways that have. Hugely salutary benefits to US software is everything I think it was Marc Andreessen we put in the report said software is eating everything. So it's everything and the problem is the government indefinitely the Pentagon by the way to to a lesser extent, the intelligence community, the Pentagon, and the national security community generally thinks about software. Okay. I need to go buy some of that right but that of course, and that's how they bought tanks and that's how we bought satellites for the NRO we. Go when we buy some of that and so we get a bunch of very senior people together to say we're going to take six months to write a seventy page descriptions of what this thing needs to do, and then we're going to hand it to a defense contract or somebody and help us produce it and we'll pay them boom. We're done well, that's not at all the way software works you know listeners will know that every single day probably their hand held cell phone. IPAD, whatever they use has their their software updated. Because software is never done it is an iterative development process in which it's very hard to at the very beginning have a list of firm criteria. What you want is you want constant interaction with the end user. And you want living process in which you know new ideas are embraced, which takes us back to the risk conversation and you know again, NSA has lived in a software world for a long time. So I was there on the better end of this, you know the Pentagon acquisition apparatus, which is about buying enormously expensive shops in airplanes. I. Would say they're on the other end of the spectrum and we mentioned in the in the report. There's actually a terrific book about it by Christian Bros. named the kill chain. He was. John McCain's lead staffer on defense issues in I chief of the staff on on Senate Armed Services He makes this case that we really need to radically rethink the way the government does software. And and by the way started make longer than it should be. The good news is we are modeling that even inside the Pentagon was projects like Kessel run, which is A. Little. Tiny corner the Pentagon that is developing esoteric piece of software to control the combat air operations centers in particular the one encounter where we have a huge airbase in an iterative flexible, your work is never done kind of way, but that is the dramatic exception to the rule in how the national security apparatus buys this essential essential thing. So what does I got a little bit about China because it seems to be sort of a source of tension in this report, you say that sort of it's an overly narrow view that the national security innovation race is framed as a competition with China and wall sort of acknowledging it's a it's a significant competitor really does sort of say that we should be thinking. About this in much broader terms that said a lot of the the sort of the meat of the recommendations, a lot of the specific applications even of the conversation we've had thus far does lead back to China, and so I'm curious you know as we conceptualize with the world in which we are innovating, how should we be thinking about China as as part of that sort? Of Long, term strategic vision, and you know is is thinking of China as a competitor at unhealthy and sort of a warps innovation and development, or or is it naive to not recognize You know sort of this this near peer as we knowledge that they are what will I think? I'm thinking about China requires to counter intuitive leaps right? The first one is. This is this is true of thinking about China in every realm. You know we humans like to sink in you know terms of good bad black hat white hat China's an enemy. That's the language of Donald Trump right the reality is that that's not the right way to think about China. Right? China does things and is things that are profoundly objectionable tots and I'm talking about. The internment of of a minority population in western China. I'm talking about they're stealing our intellectual property I'm talking about their own human rights record inside. There's there's a long list of things that are beyond obnoxious to people with Western or American values but they are also are absolutely essential economic trading partner not just economic trading partner they own trillions of dollars of the United States debt and so. We. Sort of need to think about China as something other than just a bad guy and a competitor now in the more narrow realm that we're talking about here..

Caring for Clivias: All you need to know!
"Going to talk today. A about the plant that I say probably most of America calls and I say Clive via I knew you were GonNa be a live. I say clavier because I remember very vividly one time I was talking talking with Dan. Himes who is a plant Geek from the Pacific northwest and he told a story about One time talking with somebody from Great Britain and he mentioned that he's he said Clive era and the person he was talking to said. Oh I'm so glad you said Clive Eah. I my new Robert Clive Myself. Yes I know. I know. It's named after a Mr Clive. Actually Lady Clive. It was named after the granddaughter daughter of the Duke of Northumberland Robert Clive and a granddaughter was lady Charlotte Florentina Clive. Loop de do anyway like. Why do you say clavier or Clive era? This is a fabulous plant. It is and it's one of the plants that I get questions about all the time because so many people have heard about how beautiful it is have seen its flowers which are outstandingly gorgeous but have trouble getting it to bloom. The way they want it to. And it's very very easy problem to solve given the right circumstances and if you don't have the right circumstances while you're just it's never going to solve the problem. It has very specific wants and needs period. Well so let's go into those wants needs central mentioned it. What ah how can someone get a Clai via plant to boom? Well someone can get a clavier plant to bloom my first of all moving it outside for the summer give it a summer vacation. Move it indoors when it gets to be in the high forties low fifties maybe down even to forty five live. Bring it back doors and put it in a dark cold room that you don't use very often because dark dark. It doesn't have to be dark dark but it just has to be one on that you don't turn the lights on in a lot. So when we were in Pennsylvania we'd put it in our guest room which in the winter I kept closed off and hated to fifty and it would get the ambient light from the windows does but it wasn't getting all that supplemental light from them being turned off and on all the time so the combination of the shorter daylight hours and the cool temperatures are are what not only instigates bloom but also makes that bloom stock rise above the foliage of the plant. Because sometimes you'll get the clavier Avia to bloom at the right time but people complain that the flowers are compressed between the leaves and if they don't have that cold temperature that's what happens. I I got bloom year after year. Perfectly in Pennsylvania here. I can't give it that kind of growing conditions so even though I still love my plant the bloom if it comes at all squished between the leaves and there is simply nothing I can do about that in my current home. Yeah it you want that around fifty a degree temperature. That's number one and You want that to be for about a six to eight week period. Just you know. It's not like a two days where it's going to no it's gotta be extended and the plant will you'll see it. I mean you'll know when it starting to bloom you'll see the bloom spike now during that time during that six to eight weeks around fifty fifty five ish you know temperature and not any extra light. Do you water it to feed it what you do. I don't feed my plants often at all and I probably should so no. I don't feed it but yes I do water it not very much. The clavier has very succulent roots. I would give it some water. Probably every three two weeks when it's in that courtroom Okay you mentioned putting it outside for summer camp full sun parts on shade dappled son. I'd go for Dappled Sun. That's what I used to do a here in New Mexico you would have to do it in shade because being at seven thousand feet. The Sun is just so much stronger but as with any any house plant that you're bringing out for some vacation. put it in shade. I get used to the outdoor light which is so much stronger than our indoor light and get used to it and then move it into dappled sunlight. I'm like one of the comments that I hear about Clavier. Plants Ellen is that they're expensive and there is a reason for this and the reason is this is a plant that For reasons unknown to me can't be propagated through tissue culture interest. Yeah isn't that interesting. And so either you have to take a a piece off of an existing plan which is fairly easy to do to divide but then that piece that you've taken off it has to grow and become a little bit root bound and usually it takes two to three sometimes even more years in order to to bring that piece into bloom. So that means from the growers point of view. They've got to hang onto this plant for two three years before they can sell Ella. You have to be patient. It is so worth it. There's nothing like the brilliant orange blooms of clavier on February worry afternoon. You look at the snow and if you stick your nose right down in those flowers there's also a really gentle fragrance. It's it's a wonderful plant. And yes you're right they are a little bit pricey and you do have to be patient because they don't bloom until they've got a little age on them but man. Is it worth

"You're seeing me torn I you know. I'm an elected official in a very polarized time. So I'm very much in the trenches of fighting the partisan aspect and it is true and there will be Republicans in the room. I don't disagree with your premise. And and it's profoundly concerning to me so oh I don't know how that plays out and let me not get into the politics of what. A second term may be may mean in terms of validating the dismissal of truth. But so what I do want to say that it was maybe a little less. Partisan in its inclination is that you're not ever going to solve the problem of determining truth in a political context. I I must say and I lose friends for saying this that I have some sympathy for the point of view that Zuckerberg has taken in the sense that God don't ever try to introduce an arbiter era of what is true or what is false because very little in the universe almost nothing in the political universe can be so judged so the example. I've been using in the last couple of days or so as you know. Here's one statement about Medicare Medicare is the most effective social insurance program ever developed by industrialized country. Statement Number One statement number two Medicare is mathematically doomed. Those two things are both true but obviously one appeals to one one segment of the population. So we need to get away from the notion that we can have an arbiter of truth in the political arena even as we hopefully go to the place that I was trying to encourage US eloquently as I was doing it of being better or more critical more thoughtful consumers of information sir. I'm Chuck Angel. Aig Insurance Company. Senator Warner Order. Set it so he's not here so I can't ask him. Directly talked about incentivizing cyber insurance companies insurance companies to help report ransomware. I want to know if you any thoughts on that. But what builds on that is the same thing we have problem with. Law Enforcement has. Is that private companies. Get the lawyers involved. I looking to protect the reputation in privilege. Now a privacy when these events happen so there's kind of a lag if not complete impediment to sharing information and if there's a way to incentivize advises public companies not to risk themselves in sharing information on these things with their colleagues and. Yeah we we. We obviously have worked to. Do you know somebody pointed out to me. A couple years ago that that in the realm of cyber attacks into the private sector. It's the one area in which the victim I e the company is also sort of considered the perpetrator and in some cases that will obviously be inadequate protections. If people aren't applying best practices etc that might actually be a legitimate argument but we are clearly going to need to do as we tried to do in two thousand fifteen with the cyber security information nations sharing act. We're going to need to carve out whatever you WANNA call it. Indemnification safe harbors the create this sharing sharing and I think the other principle that is important. And that'll make people uncomfortable. But you know if we are in fact GONNA have a world in which information flows in real time between private and public sector actor. We're going to do that. The other thing I think is important here is how we think about the regulatory structure in the financial services world. which is where I spend a AH chunk of my time? We often contrast the American Financial Regulatory System with the in particular British European system or even better the way we regulate the way the FAA regulates. Our air travel system. One is more punitive in its orientation tation. SEC spent a bunch of times nosing around and then bring suit another one is much more collaborative orientational the FAA companies are encouraged and protected for self reporting problems. uh-huh their their their their exam. Etcetera so I do think that that that we need to consciously evolve the way we talk about this in the direction of the FAA. It's not a terrible metaphor right. I mean actually. It'd probably is a terrible metaphor. Obviously a plane falling out of the sky is very different than you. Having your credit card hacked but but in some ways the stakes are are equally serious in terms of a their impact. So I think I think evolving the regulatory structure with that as an underlying philosophy is going the important Thanks so much. My name is gorgeous. Dharma is a call civil society for the United Nations. We're all aware that cybercrime widen. WHO's a threat to national to national security? I'd like to ask the question directly recently a large number of Nigerians arrested in Texas for money long train and CYBERCRIME HAMAS the US government dealing with this issue as regards cybercrime which is being perpetrated. It by Nigerians here on. US soil. Thank you yeah. I'm not I'm not sure I have a a a a super good answer that question because I'm only passing familiar with the details of the case but in some ways that's the special case that we haven't talked a lot about if you are in the United States committing criminal acts by hacking into computer stealing passwords words. Whatever it may be in some ways? That's the easy problem to solve. Because you're here there's a good chance will detect it and we had the jurisdictional authorities to To deal with that so again I'm not. I'm not super familiar with the specifics of those of of of that case but in some ways it's the easy one. It's a lot harder. Obviously these were Nigerians Nigerians if they're in Nigeria. Now it's a much much more challenging thing and I'm not even sure that we've done enough to energize the M latte process which is how we would typically go after people internationally. I spend time with our league at in various embassies and this is not an area. You know they've been focused on drug trafficking human trafficking etcetera. This is probably something we could do. Better attune the whole emlyn process to to going. After these sorts of crimes we have time for one more question and The Mike is in the hands of the gentlemen here. Hello thank thank thank opportunity. Representative hines building. Something you brought up of a protocols and disjointed approach to addressing these crimes reported do you think that the factors eighteen thousand different law enforcement agencies here in the. US kind of bills have have false barriers kind of interrupt that flow of information here in the United States unquestionably unquestionably I relative to Europe We're just a culturally a very different place. That's true in our the way we handle education right. I mean every town in Connecticut has its own board of education and we have a state board of Ed and the federal government doesn't get to mess around at all well not at all but but in any meaningful way and state municipalities so. This is our our culture right and of all of all the things that are not likely to change in this country anytime soon. We'll be the concept of local law enforcement state level law enforcement remember bell. Remember this I mean the FBI is only what one hundred plus years old just about one hundred hundred years old so the very concept the concept of a national police force in this country is whatever it is three or four generations old. So that is I suppose a little bit of an impediment to more french-style unitary. DG's kind of way of doing things but but it's not insurmountable really. It's not insurmountable. I talked earlier about the efforts that have been made. Since two thousand sixteen on on election security another analogue or analogy would be the remarkable work. Actually that was done Post nine eleven. In terms of actual waiting state and and municipal police to look for the indicators of terrorism and again it's nothing you ever celebrate because of course something we'll get through because of the jurisdictional issues news but today local police forces almost always have somebody with access to classified information there in rooms with the FBI. They have access to a a national level information. That might be valuable so again. I'm not I'm not saying we've solved that problem. I'm just saying there are analogies out there for dealing with this that we as an as an you you know we will always be fragmented in this country in terms of our sharing of power but I think that there are analogies for dealing with it all right we have come to the end of our allotted a time. We could go on at greater length but we can't So please join me in thanking Congressman himes uh-huh and Senator Warner though he is no longer here For this extraordinary conversation people people think that members of Congress don't to actually do deep thinking on policy and and or anything and I think the last hour and a quarter has really shown that at at least some actually do so.

"Himes of Connecticut is as a member of the House Intelligence Committee I and let's get right into it without further ado. I want to start if we can buy. I sort of refining the subject at hand. We're here to talk about cybercrime enforcement. You guys are on the intelligence committees. which which is we? Don't think of normally as settings of criminal enforcement discussion so I wanNA kind of explore. The relationship between the intelligence committees committees and the subject today at hand Senator Warner get US started why is cybercrime related to the work. A product of the intelligence committees as such well. Then thank you for having us and for everyone at this presentation. The truth is one of the many reasons why Congress is so. Dysfunctional is that We don't have a committee structure that matches watches a twenty-first-century world so there is no cyber committee in the US Congress. It touches a variety of of subject matter to a variety of committees and at the same time we have no even technology committee in in the in the congress so in a sense by by default the intelligence committee which at least on the Senate side is in many ways become virtually the default technology -nology committee because we see all of the challenges from emerging technologies. We see those. In the context of both individuals and with state actors. Actors has been the one place where the only piece of cyber legislation of any substance the information sharing legislation of a few years. Back it came came out the voluntary information sharing legislation came out We continue to look at it probably more so from the nation state actors. I roll on cyber and I think you know if we were going to Redo the committee structure there might be technology slash cyber committee but the interim I think it will fall to us on Intel and because generally speaking at least on the Senate side we still function in a relatively. Bipartisan Way. That I think is a nerd to the benefit of of thinking through these issues in a perhaps less partisan fashion congressman. What are what are your thoughts on this? I you know I I look at it and say the issues that your committee has been both of. Your committees have been most publicly engaged with the Russian Russian electoral interference most prominently the modality or one of the major modalities of addressing that has been cybercrime enforcement right and so I'm curious whether that's the kind of core linkage or whether there's a a sort of more fundamental one well I certainly agree with what Mark said and maybe just a build out on that point a little bit. You can't conceive of a CYBERCRIME as anything other than global. An awful lot of the bad actors are either abroad Many of them will be either formally associated with a sovereign or informally associated with sovereign even flesh. That out what is is in. We indicted a bunch of Russian state actor hackers and a bunch of La State actor hackers four cybercrimes times when you say informally associated with a sovereign. What's that S- step level down from that that you're referring to and China's probably probably not the right model to illustrate the point I was trying to make China's very hierarchical very regimented in what they do? Which is why the FBI was able to identify units in rooms? Rooms and people and indict the Russians are what I'm thinking of more. I can't I can't get into the level of granularity around the other people who are active whether it's North Korea around but but the Russians I mean I think the Internet research agency is the best illustrative example. Apparently the guy who runs that is Putin's chef. I'm pretty sure that's not in the Russian constitution as a former sovereign mechanism. But you know the Russians obviously are very interested in chaos and they're very interested in deniable. Chaos chaos leads them in particular to employ. You know not just people in Russia but I suspect people throughout Europe with technical capability to achieve their ends it it gives them the ability to deny what they are in fact behind and I think let me. Just add to Jim's point here I think we've seen some level of evidence. The they may be spies by day working literally for the State Service or indirectly as in the case the IRA and criminals at night in terms of networking with other cyber characters. Not just in their particular nation listen our Russia but with networks of of cybercriminals around in collaborating on ransomware attacks collaborating denial of service attacks in a way that we believe probably simply supplements their daytime income with exponentially larger returns on their their part time night activities and of course that there are part time night activities are tolerated by the countries that they're in because they're day time activities are so beneficial to the intelligence and and interests of the country in question. Yeah tolerated encouraged right. I mean and again I I know less about North Korea than I do do about China and Russia which I think is probably true of most government officials in the sense out there is that North Korea actually requires its the government people to bring in revenue in one of the ways they can do that simply obviously is through through cybercrime all right. So you've described a kind of almost seamless web between the state action that either employees or kind of quasi employees the actors ars in question and the criminal activities through which they accomplish both the state action and their own private action. I'm I'm interested in both of your sense of what. The role of criminal enforcement is the proper proper role. The optimal role of criminal enforcement is in addressing this web. Is it a big part. The picture that is underused. Is it a small part of the picture that is being appropriately. Used given how hard it is to get custody the of people or is there some you know other set of state authorities that is going to be the dominant one that this. There's going to be a kind of in support of. How do you see it? As a as a as a part of the government's arsenal in responding take take a crack at that. I've been frustrated. I've been frustrated by a bunch of things in this realm. It is it is my opinion that that The Obama Administration of of which I was a supporter was underwhelming in their response to the Russian attacks. I think I think that response. Plus the current president's actions are sending the signal that Russia and associated entities and people can do what they like and I've also been frustrated by the fact that I think there's a general acknowledgement that the indictments the Chinese. PLA People and of the Russians will never come to trial there is value in naming and shaming. But you who also give up an awful lot when you come out as detailed as those indictments have in terms of your sources and methods so I'm very frustrated in this this world about what law enforcement internationally will do law enforcement can be very effective in places where they have jurisdiction. But I'm a bit. It's very frustrating to me. Because it right now. How absentee more comprehensive global understanding of how we're going to deal with this stuff naming and shaming is good but we also again give away away an awful lot of what we know and how we know it and I would echo what Jim said even maybe I'll take your frustration and double it it just just in the sense that I would argue that that post nine eleven even go back to Bush and Obama? We've not had a articulated suber doctrine so consequently we we been willing to use our tools against second tier states Iran North Korea near pure adversaries like Russia and China. Because we've not had a clearly articulated cyber doctrine we have been so afraid need of cyber escalation that I think we've been kind of open season and open hunting for other nation states and their agents. It's the kind of normal sense of if you have a major cyber attack. Denial Service attack and you shut down Moscow for twenty four hours. You've got a problem. You Shutdown New York for twenty four hours. You've got a crisis and consequently we have been unwilling to lay out in articulate will way what our country the strategy what are red lines are and and what our willingness to use our own tools on. Let me go ahead and make one. You know Point here which I normally make which they complement to the trump administration one of the things that the trump administration did do more recently in two thousand eighteen gene was they slightly decreased the amount of bureaucratic hoops. You have to go through if you cyber command were to use potentially offensive capabilities. I think net net that made sense. I think it coupling this lack of strategy articulated it'd strategy and doctrine around cyber comes also a lack of international norms and standards. If we're going to have an effective cyber regime gene we need to. I would argue not dissimilar to chemical or biological weapons we need rules of attribution. We need rules in terms of if you do X.. And even if the attribution is not to the ninety fifth percentile but we can show that it is originating from a a region or a country then there should potentially be consequences but our failure to have those kind of international standards combined with a lack of our articulated aided cyber strategy and cyber doctrine means that forms like this really important and we are behind the game and consequently whether it is nation state actors or or kind of increasingly not run of the mill but ever more common right. ransomware attacks We are you know behind the criminal activities and need to catch up okay but you know so in different ways. I think you've both sort of challenge. The premise of the conference here. So if we take as a As naming shaming indictments involving state actors or kind of give up a lot in terms of sources and methods in order in exchange for relatively little and that a fundamental component of. The problem is a lack of cyber doctrine in the non-criminal areas. It would follow that we may be over emphasizing criminal enforcement at this point as a way of dealing with this. So I'm I'm interested for both both of your senses was was the PLA indictment a mistake and for that matter was Robert. Muller's GRU are you indictment or and IRA indictment both of which gave up a lot in order to not get custody of people were the were. Are Those mistakes. I don't think they were mistakes. I think that the level particularly of intellectual property theft From China was so great at has once again returned to being so great That short of a full doctrine a- least doing the naming shaming was important necessary necessary but not sufficient and we need a more enforceable doctrine. I think hope while not directly the topic but China's ability to couple intellectual property theft with a very determined termined technology investment strategy combined that within national champions in areas like always becoming five G. and we have a security and economic challenge. Unlike anything we've ever faced in our lifetimes ought to be perhaps a subject of different conference but it is i. I think one of the issues of our day in in just starting to wrap our minds around that nicely that kind of China versus not United States and China is a great nation. Be Very clear but the Chinese communist party versus the West Writ Large in technology innovation. We've always set the rules standards and protocols that that was not the case in five G. increasingly may not be the case in AI quantum facial recognition and a lot of this is built upon at Lee some of the intellectual property that was that was stolen through cyber means and then supplemented by a very aggressive investment strategy. Couple that as well I think on the on the IRA. A I think the while people were not brought to justice in terms of individuals. I do think the indictments were appropriate. And I do think as a nation we you have gotten better and I think we were The two thousand eighteen case both of being willing to get better at the domestic front and also Potentially using some of our tools abroad step in the right direction. It doesn't mean though by any means that we're we're secure in twenty twenty..

Sante Kimes: Mother, Murderer, and Criminal Mastermind
"Is is the story of the original helicopter mother sean take times and her son kenny holy shit i'm about to tell you a story that i got an jay did the research urge for me i got sources from vanity fair article from two thousand by a writer named susanna andrews called sean times mother murderer and criminal masterminds as well as wikipedia murder pedia and sean taes LA times obituary i also last night watched this made for TV movie like mother like son the a strange story of sean kennedy times it's on youtube it's so good at starring mary tyler moore sean times she's amazing she play they like the quintessential like this is the type of person we're talking about like the quintessential mary tyler moore she like out of the box she's out of the box this is not the mary the MTA AMU thought you know she's a she's a schemer and con artist and a weirdly sexual with everybody and it's very uncomfortable to watch our hero mary tyler moore be the key such a villain expressed jean stapleton is in it who if you if you aren't familiar is a great actress she was is it all in the family i stephen yes that's how she's very well know but she is a an amazing actress when you when you see her in another part you're like oh my god she's so good very different and then and gabriel olds plays kenny times and i think he is from a soap opera but he is great so anyway and that made for TV movie was based on the book the mother the sun and the socialite socialite by adrian hill so there's lots of things if the story interests you get down and dirty details in lots of ways so let me let me get into it we will start with a woman irene silverman so irene she's a retired ballerina she was in the new york city ballet accompany member but she was also an elite socialite and she lived with her husband multimillionaire mortgage broker sam silverman in an extravagant seven million dollar townhouse on east sixty fifth street in manhattan seven million seven million in the seventies oh my god yeah and so so she is an extrovert she throws parties all the time she's she's a true social fun yeah right having money she's always entertaining guests has tons of friends canopies everywhere pays can pay an canopy it's even that can the pay can i pay existence so when her husband sam passes away in one thousand nine hundred eighty irene decides that she's going to take their humongous townhouse and and turn it into like an apartment building into basically luxury apartments so on average the rents of these individual apartments go for about six thousand dollars hours a month which in today's money would be seventeen thousand five hundred dollars or an apartment for an apartment in on east sixty sixty fifth street manhattan all right write nana's so her tenants are very impressive and include such luminaries luminaries as the marquis and marchioness of northampton you know i'm reading a phonetic spelling of both of those martian of north hampton danton marcia marcia s north hampton not a martian take me to your leader day-lewis and chaka khan i would together together we don't start gossip but yes they were deeply in love with those with that cast list i'd i pay up to eighteen thousand dollars a month to live there he managed to get a camera installed so i can watch your go downstairs to get your mail and their chaka khan like hey girl what's up you know like thank you wanna go out partying let's party so okay we're going to skip ahead about twenty years after she's established he's beautiful luxury apartments now irene is eighty two years sold on june fourteenth nineteen ninety eight a young businessman from palm beach named manny garren arrives at irene's home asking if he can rent one of his apartments he is traditionally good looking like lou diamond phillips special something you know everybody has different tastes we talk talk about people being good looking at beautiful time but who knows what people like you don't get a fucking say in it that's right traditionally good-looking means if someone drew a picture that's what a good looking person look like right look hugh grant traditionally good luck traditionally good-looking right but there's lots of people who are good looking dapper eh anyhow self esteem he's good looking traditionally well-spoken very friendly very charming i'm very smooth he tells iran he was referred by a mutual friend she recognizes the name oh you know it's all great or the marchioness from it's a yeah it's the marchioness us or the marquess unfortunately manny doesn't have any ID on him can't remember his social security number and the only he doesn't have any other references but he promises he's going to get them to irene the next day and then he gives her six grand in cash for his first month's rent so ordinarily irene there's actually very careful about stuff like this but because they have mutual friend and because he's paying in cash and probably because he's traditionally good-looking incredibly charming she allows him to move in the day of day of fact that okay everyone will and also well ninety eight early days of the internet yeah that's ten and eighty two year old woman wouldn't real absolutely it was all there at our fingertips okay so over the course of the next three weeks manny goes from being a charming suave a businessman type to a creepy weirdo he never turns over the proper ID or references he will not allow irene's maids into the unit to clean which goes along with your six thousand dollar rent ready yeah kind of like hotel he always hides his face from the security camera in irene's lobby show very acorn shell and he always has strange guests in his apartment and including an older woman who seems to be there all the time john chaka khan shocker gone she would shock would never go down she knows creeps when she sees him right now in the mary tyler moore movie that i watched watched she tells when the maid comes she tells her that she is manny's assistant and is very rude to the man so she doesn't make any friends so so basically after the first week irene decide she's gonna ask manny to leave she's like you had your you had your month enough of this he flatly refuses flabby creepy can you imagine that traditionally handsome i am flatly refusing something then you're just like well i guess this is the new reality yeah because the the hawk doesn't want to right well here's what irene does 'cause she didn't take any shit she cuts off his phone line thinking that's going to get him out of there and she begins eviction shen proceedings so she's immediately kicking yourself for being nice yeah which is what happened always a mistake so on the evening of saturday july fourth nineteen ninety eight i arena has friends over 'cause it's fourth of july and they also have noticed manny's strange behavior she irene explains the whole situation and her friends are very concerned and they say you know like do you need help what he wants to do she says that she can handle it they know she's tough as his nails so you know everybody feels okay about it the next morning july fifth nineteen ninety eight irene asks one of her maids if she would run some errands for her and when the made gets back from running those errands she can't find irena anywhere in the house from the made immediately contact irene's business manager who then decides to contact like the police and when the police searched the home they don't find any signs of disturbance there's no blood inside the struggled indicate that there was violence or or an incident of any kind so they start questioning irene's friends and the tenants but manny garin is nowhere to be found and when they run a name check on on that one new mysterious tenant the name manny garin is fake so suddenly the mystery tenant is now possible suspect in iran's disappearance it just so happens that on that same night july fifth a mother and son by the name of sean taylor and kenneth times are arrested in front of the manhattan hilton holton for stealing a lincoln towncar from a dealership in cedar city utah wow yes they finally tracked them down and they get arrested so when a detective who was on the scene for the silverman case sees the story of the crimes arrest on the news he sees kenneth and says that looks looks exactly like the description of manny garin and handsome hey that guy's traditionally handsome in a way that bores me but that but then i also immediately immediately trust for reasons i can't explain so he puts it together that they are one in the same person so on july seventh nineteen ninety eight the NYPD have shontayne kenneth times properly identified and in custody and that's when they discovered that the mother and son are being tracked by the FBI as suspects for a slew of crimes across across the nation including arson fraud and murder okay so now we'll go back we'll talk a little bit about sean times she was born sandra louise sing in oklahoma city on july twenty fourth nineteen thirty four she grows up in nevada with her parents mary van horn and mahendra promising and there's almost nothing known about her childhood factually they believe that her birth certificate was forged forged so her exact origins and even date of birth are they're not sure creepy about it and the funny thing is is mary tyler moore playing sean take himes all she talks about how much she hates getting older and aging it's it's pretty funny so it would make sense that the first thing she does erase her birth sir
